[01:21] – Layla has always been fascinated by sexuality
[01:26] – Her sexual trauma as a child gave her a deep sense of what it can be to feel sexually shut down
[01:48] – At 18, Layla knew that sexuality was her path
[02:22] – “I spent almost 10 years in Asia, doing crazy stuff in the jungle”
[03:05] – Layla talks about how her classes at Stanford went
[04:17] – Layla’s expertise is to show how to remove any blockage – psychological, physiological, emotional – from sexual intimacy experiences, and to move into the fullest deep expression of sexuality and connection
[04:40] – Share something we don’t know about your area of expertise that as Entrepreneurs, we probably should: “Sexuality is so intimately tied to our creativity and to our experience of ourselves”
[06:15] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: When Layla moved to New York from Asia, she started her YouTube channel and online courses. The first few months were a struggle, but she eventually gained traction. Layla had to take a side job to help fund her new business at an ice cream shop, and she tried her best to hide it from people – until she was photographed by Humans of New York and her picture was published online. She initially felt ashamed, but later realized it was fine
[10:05] – “I would do it – whatever it takes”
[11:09] – Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment: In just 3 and a half years, Layla has built 4 online courses and her company has grown into a 7-figure business. She had a feeling that there was still a “next level” for her and her business, but she couldn’t decide on it. She did a ritual where she talked to her unconscious, and that gave her the YES. She then pursued creating a certification course and it became successful
[16:45] – The Lightning Round
- What was holding you back from becoming an entrepreneur? – “Unworthiness”
- What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – “If you’re not embarrassed by what you released, then you waited too long”
- What’s a personal habit that contributes to your success? – “I do breath work”
- Share an internet resource, like Evernote, with Fire Nation – Layla’s YouTube
- If you could recommend one book to our listeners, what would it be and why? – Tantra Illuminated – “it’s one of the only books I found that really grounds it and helps people who feel like they want to explore it but they want a really good understanding of the roots of it, the original practice of it, and that’s just an incredible book for letting people see the depth and richness of the path”
[19:58] – “Combine breath work with your sexual experience”
