We had the good fortune of connecting with Whitney Bartscher and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Whitney, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I was considering starting this business, I wanted to provide something to others that would impact their lives in the most positive way possible. I sat down with it and thought about what was the most impactful thing in my life? What had made such a difference in my life that I could pinpoint every good thing back to this one? I looked around not only at my life but at the lives of those around me. While some people had quite lovely lives they were often so busy going through the motions that they weren’t really experiencing their lives fully. This stuck out to me because for many years I had lived in this way as well. Whether my life was abundant or lacking at the time, one thing was constant that I was just trying to keep up rather than truly living. The one thing that made the most impact on me was learning Mindset training and applying the tools of The Law of Attraction to my life. Through this I had become more present. I had more of the experiences in my life as well as with my friends and family that I had longed for. I had built this incredible life that I loved to live every day as a result of these tools and I wanted to share this knowledge and these tools with the world. I had this burning desire to give as many people as possible the tools to enhance their lives in this way as well. This is how my business came to be. I really put a lot of energy into how I could teach these tools to the most people and I realized that an on-line business could reach millions of people or more all over the world. I wanted to make this as accessible as possible for anyone who wanted to learn these tools. I have been able to do that with this business and while I have only been in business full time for a short period of time, the impact that I have seen in the lives of others has been nothing short of astonishing. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I spent 20 years in the transportation industry. I had some amazing experiences with it but it was never my “passion”. There was always something missing. I entered into the transportation industry because my dad was in the field and he taught my brother and I all that we needed to know to be successful in it. He gave us our “back-up plan”. That one thing that if we had nothing else in this world, we could fall back on and be successful. During the 11 years that I was learning Mindset training and The Law of Attraction, I worked in transportation and flourished professionally. That career gave me a way to support myself and my family. It gave me a way to feel accomplished and proud of myself. Without that bridge in my life I can honestly say that I don’t know where I would be today. The last 3 years that I spent in the transportation industry I noticed that I was applying my knowledge of the Law of Attraction and Mindset training to my employees. These are people who are the best of the best. I’m not talking about their jobs, which they were, but about their character. The people that I managed were kind, decent, hard working and so thoroughly dedicated to their jobs and their families. I’ll never be able to adequately describe how truly incredible and inspiring they are. In the last 6-8 months before I transitioned from the transportation industry to building my own business I stopped holding back in my teachings with them. I consciously began to teach these tools to my employees and fully experience their growth and responses. The change in perspective was mind blowing. This change in their perspective and how they were not only thinking but living was the final straw that pushed me to build this business and really begin my journey into spreading this information to as many people as possible.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Oh where do I begin? One of the things that I am most grateful for with using this mindset is that it has brought me to the beautiful state of Colorado! I have lived all over the South. I have long been accustomed to being near the beach and how awe inspiring she can be. However, there was a deep burning desire in my soul to be in the mountains. I will tell you that going into those mountains is a truly humbling and almost overwhelming experience. The beauty, the majesty, the sheer fact that someone thought to make those and also thought the world needed me is truly indescribable. If someone was to come visit I would take them on Peak to Peak Highway. I would travel with them from Boulder all along the highway over to Idaho Springs. We would have lunch at the amazing Beaujo’s Pizza followed by some small town, touristy shopping and ending with a dip in the hot springs. To me, this is a perfect combination of awe inspiring nature, good food, shopping and peace! Ideally, I would do this in the spring or summer so that we could take the tops off of my Jeep and let the wind blow in our hair as we look up to the mountains towering over us. This is my idea of heaven and exactly the day that I would give anyone wanting to visit and enjoy! If this turned into a week long trip we would take the tops off of the Jeep and head out to Salida, Colorado. There is something about that town that is the perfect mixture of cute small town feel, mixed with just the right amount of adventure! We would rent a cabin in town and spend our days shopping, taking mid afternoon dips in the river, dining out and having a few drinks at one of the many patio restaurants and bars overlooking the river. There is a buzz in any atmosphere that combines good food, drinks, live music, mountain peaks all around and the rumbling of the river down below.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have to admit that there are actually two people in my life that deserve part of the credit for getting me into a position to be able to share this knowledge and to live this incredible life. It all started by my mother introducing me to the movie “The Secret”. Once I saw that movie and began researching how to train my mind to be able to work for me everything began to change. I spent years researching and learning everything that I could about how to not only control my own mind but also how to use the tools of The Law of Attraction to attract the things that I truly wanted to experience into my life. The only reason that I was introduced to this information and set on this path was because my mother sat me down at a low point in my life and made me watch that one movie. She told me that this was the way and that it was time I started living. Because of my mother, I am doing this work and living a life more fulfilled than I had ever imagined. The second person who has helped to make all of this possible is my wife. I have to say that I would not be where I am today without her. She has not only pushed me to be the best version of myself each and every day, but she reminded me that I really can do anything. She constantly reminds me that I can truly help people to change their lives for the better. She is the person that I look to for inspiration each and every day. Each time I look to her I find strength, courage, kindness like no other and a resilience that pushes me forward. I am reminded by her each day just how strong I really am, and just how bad I truly want to impact this world in the most positive way.
