We had the good fortune of connecting with Bex Burton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bex, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking has played a huge part in my life and my career. From moving to big cities and cross country, to starting two unique businesses, I certainly wouldn’t have the lifestyle I enjoy today were it not for the risks I’ve taken in life. There’s very little that we create or accomplish in our lives without taking calculated risk. Without risk we end up settling for a life that doesn’t measure up to the desires we hold in our heart. The very nature of my work supports fiercely independent women through the many risks of attracting and growing lasting love. The risk to pay attention to our heart’s desire. The risk to experience rejection. The risk to open themselves vulnerably. The risk to say NO to something that seems logical but doesn’t feel aligned. The risk to believe we can have / do / be something greater than we are today. Risk taking is key in creating the life you love.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Through my practice, Bex Burton Coaching, I help fiercely independent women attract and grow lasting love, without sacrificing who they are or what they want out of life. At heart I am an artist and creative, so the journey to love for my clients is ripe with self-discovery, adventure, play and joy. I am most proud of my client’s transformations into their own personal majesty: confident, receptive, and magnetic to the right partner. I’ve played a part in hundreds of soulmate relationships born, dozens of marriages committed, and countless numbers of hearts finding their self-esteem, worthiness and value in the world and in love. The journey I’ve taken with this business has not been easy, although it has been educating and invaluable. What I’ve learned on my path is to trust my intuition about people, whether they be potential clients, partners or mentors. That we can not do business in a vacuum, that we must lean on and life each other up. That there will be days that will make us want to quit, and other days where we deeply feel the impact of our work on the world. The best tool that I’ve learned over the years is that Self Care is Key. Without the time, energy, focus and attention upon ourselves, our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, the business doesn’t have a leg to stand on. Things take longer than we think. The best we can do for ourselves along the way is to ensure we make time for breath, movement, laughter, touch, play and JOY. These are the elements I infuse in a woman’s love attraction journey, and can be applied to any creation / manifestation path we are on.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When my best friends come to visit, I want to show them everything Colorful Colorado has to offer! Over the span of a week, I would make sure that we hit up a brunch at Snooze for ridiculously delicious pancakes, Aviano coffee for a yummy coffee beverage, a stop at Sweet Action Ice Cream for a scoop or milkshake, a pop into the 5280s shop next door for some sweet nostalgia, indulge in a creative masterpiece from Voodoo Donuts… Can you tell I have a sweet tooth? Lunch or dinner at True Food Cafe & Watercourse. A visit wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t head North towards Longmont, closer to where I live. Here we’d hit up the Chautauqua park in Boulder, Buckingham Park in the Lefthand Canyon, the Ice Rink in Longmont, and the Art Walk in Niwot. We’d grab Mexican from Mojo’s in Lyons, Ramen from Chimera in Boulder, and Ice Cream from Sweet Cow.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to send a shoutout to all the men with whom I dated & related on my journey to love. To all the hearts I broke, to those who broke mine; every experience I encountered on the path gifted me a piece of clarity into my feelings, needs and desires. There are no mistakes in love, only gifts and lessons. The biggest shoutout of all goes to my husband, Nick, who has contributed the most to my learning, understanding and knowledge of lasting love. He is my best friend, my equal, my sounding board, and my mirror, reflecting back to me ways in which I can continually grow and show up in love.
