How do mermaids make money?

Mermaiding, wearing a mermaid tale and swimming, has exploded in popularity recently. And last week I had the opportunity to chat with Abby Oliver, mermaid and leader in the Indigo Child community. One of the questions I was most curious about was how do mermaids make money?

Abby answered:

  • Birthday parties and other events (although Abby doesn’t do them because she’s an introvert)
  • Film and photography – Abby is paid modelling day rates
  • Teaching people how to mermaid, mermaid schools
  • Writing and consulting about mermaids – she’s done a lot of research so is hired to help people create their content
  • Creating mermaid tails and other products (she’s looked into this but decided not to got that direction)

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;).
