Here’s What We’re Talking About!
(Wellness Business Spiritpreneur Topics)
1) Who is Bex, personally and professionally? Where is Bexico?
Is there a quote, key principle, or womantra that governs your life that you’d like to share?
2) Everything you’re doing looks like so much fun. What is the most fun thing about building your business around hooping?
3) I recently emailed my Sacred Bombshell tribe to ask for their biggest challenges and for many it was self-doubt. Have you ever faced self-doubt? And if so, how do you deal with the inner bully voices?
You seem so incredibly positive! It’s cool saying that to someone else because ppl say that to me all the time. Can you share a story of spiritpreneur self-sabotage?
4) Were there naysayers in your life when you said that this is what you wanted to do?
5) As a dancer, you are by nature incredibly disciplined. Many women who are watching this have challenges with what they call discipline. This may show up for them as procrastination or writer’s block. Sometimes I think that there are cosmic reasons not to move forward. In the Sacred Bombshell Handbook of self-love, I talk about approaching objectives with blissipline. Do you ever deal with procrastination? And if so, how do you deal with it?
6) You moved from New York City. What is the current structure of your business?
7) “Sense of Motion is your oasis for joyful wellness through movement!” Let’s talk marketing promotion, and advertising. How do you get the word out about your services? How do you use social media to find and speak with your Bexicans?
8) Many creative folks — artists, dancers, actors, writers — don’t think of themselves as business people. Did you always think of yourself as a business woman? And what is your advice for other artists and creatives who want to create a business?
9) There is the image of the starving artist that we have culturally. Many creative — and also spiritual folks– have conditioned issues with money and abundance. Can you please share your thoughts on this?
10) Were you always so bubbly, happy, and high energy? What do you do when you feel sad, anxious, scared or depressed?
11) You have an exciting new direction. You are talking about love. “Hone Your Heart Magnet: Secrets to Being Authentically Irresistible and Attract Your Divine Soulmate.” I just watched a video of you getting proposed to. It was beautiful — and you made me cry. Tell us more.
12) What is the best advice you’ve ever received or a Spiritpreneur book you’d recommend?
13) We define a Sacred Bombshell as a woman who loves, honors, and cherishes herself in mind-body-spirit. Given this definition, what makes you a bombshell, Bex?
14) Tell the Sacred Bombshell tribe where to find your wellness business and your current love-filled offering?

Here’s What Wikipedia has to Say About Hooping…
Hooping or “Hula-Hooping,” or “Hoop-Dance” generally refers to manipulation of and artistic movement or dancing with a hoop (or hoops). Hooping can be practiced to or performed with music. In contrast to the classic toy hula hoop, modern hoopers use heavier and larger diameter hoops. Modern hooping has been influenced by art forms such as rhythmic gymnastics, hip-hop, freestyle dance, fire performance, twirling, poi, and other dance and movement forms.
In its modern incarnation as an art or dance form, and form of exercise, the practice of manipulating a hoop is referred to either as “hoop dance” or simply “hooping”. Hoop dance artists commonly refer to themselves, and the greater hoop dance community, as hoopers.
