Hello! My name is Lima Bergmann and I am a business mentor excited to share with you the skills and strategies I have used to become a successful entrepreneur. I’m also here to make sure that your business goals are aligned with your passion and purpose in life so that you look forward to putting your new skills into action every single day. Action is the keyword here. I will give you plenty of action tasks to help you grow your business.
FROM NUMBERS TO GRAD SCHOOL
Straight out of high school, I worked as a bookkeeper and a payroll clerk. Numbers were my thing back then. After a near fatal car accident I went back to school and got a Doctorate in Psychology. Near death experiences have a way of changing you and your outlook on life. I don’t recommend taking a trip to the other side to find your purpose though. I’ll give you some better strategies for that.
A VERY UNEXPECTED TURN OF EVENTS
I worked as a psychologist for 25 years while I raised two daughters with my husband, Reid. When our daughters began acting, we moved from Northern to Southern California to support them in their careers. I homeschooled them and worked my psychology practice in the evenings and on weekends. Those were some very busy years but super rewarding to be able to give our girls the opportunity to live their passion.
WHY NOT WRITE A BOOK?
When my daughters were grown I was ready for a career shift. So, I wrote a book called, “Your Amazing Itty Bitty Raising Child Actors Book: 15 Expert Tips On Raising Kids in Show Business.” (Available soon on Amazon). I was already doing speaking events and coaching parents who were raising child actors so the book seemed like a natural next step.
TIME FOR A NEW CHALLENGE
Around this time, a talent manager friend of mine told me about her new side business in network marketing. There was no inventory, no parties required, and no quotas to meet. It was literally a business you could run from your laptop anywhere you had wifi. I was intrigued because of the flexibility and income potential so I purchased a business kit. I knew nothing about the business model but the founders of this company had a world wide reputation, the products were clinically proven and had a 60 day money back guarantee, and the company was about to go global. Career shift ….check.
So what happened? Nothing. For the first year and a half I sat on it. I didn’t have the skills to work it, I didn’t have a big enough reason to work it, and I wondered why everyone else in my upline (all 11 of them) was crushing it when I was barely breaking even. I got sidelined further when a rare medical condition hit me and kept me somewhat homebound for a year. I became concerned that I would never be able to have a “regular” job again so this home based business was looking more like a necessity. I read some books on the business model, I read some books by successful leaders in the field, and I did everything my upline told me to do. The result was… still not much growth at all. What the heck?
DON’T THROW SPAGHETTI AT THE WALL
The bottom line was, I wasn’t comfortable looking like a daily ad on my personal FB page or posting sales and asking for friends and families to join my team. I also wasn’t comfortable asking people to my house or going to cafes to give business presentations. I knew these things were working for my upline, they were all top earners by now, but these foundational skills weren’t working for me. So I started doing some heavy research and I found that there was another avenue to success called “attraction marketing.” Not only does this type of marketing work for network marketers but it’s commonly used for business models across the board. It brings people to you who are already interested in what you have vs. talking about it to everyone who crosses your path and hoping someone will show interest. Social media makes this type of marketing incredibly easy. Whether you have a brick and mortar store, an online store, a book to promote, a service based business, an affiliate business, or a network marketing business, attraction marketing works!
PASSION, SKILLS, AND ACTION
So I dug deep into my “why,” which is the first big step in any business venture. I found that the real reason I love this business model so much is because I can help other people make their dreams come true by being a good mentor. By doing regular team trainings and genuinely matching the efforts of every person I work with, I am tapping into the core of my own life purpose which is to help others live their lives with passion. This business model is making so many people’s dreams come true and I am so blessed to be a small part of that journey with everyone I work with. My business shifted immediately and the books I read and the research I did became relevant once I actually put what I learned into action. So now, I’m using these skills to promote a book, grow an affiliate business, a service based business, and a network marketing business. That is my goal here with you. To help you find your purpose and develop the skills you need to build your business and live your passion by putting your skills into action. It’s really that simple.

FOLLOWING YOUR INTUITION
Finally, you might be wondering what the “Intuitive” part of Intuitive Online Marketing means. Well, that’s another part of who I am and what I do. But we are all intuitive, and my ability to tap into that is something I bring to your training with me. As an entrepreneur, you’re already someone who has a more holistic approach to life. I strive to help you trust yourself, trust your intuition, trust your decisions, trust your failures and your successes as part of your growth, and know that your business will grow the more you believe it is something you must do to satisfy your soul purpose. I look forward to the journey with you!
