What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

Currently the area of focus for me are the legalities & payments of having the guests I would like to interview for each episode. IE: such as contracts, payment expectations, self-disclosure agreements, etc.

Help me further hone in on a specific idea and area of focus, help me with charging for services both setting a price and how to legally receive payments, introduce me to proper business management, profitability and sustainability.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I’ve identified my ideal customer; I have done a few customer discovery reports and have added them to a list of possible interviewees for diff episodes as well as generated a list of possible topics.

My future goals

To create protection of content and business through contracts and other legal documents in order to confidently move forward and start creating the actual content. IE: interviewee contracts?

My motivations to work with a mentor

I am in need of guidance and thrive when I have someone who can provide accountability and detailed next steps in any area I might need enlightenment in.


About my venture

Sagacious Souls LLC

My name is Indiana Almanzar and I am an education expert with 12+ years’ experience who is dedicated to the constant improvement of self & community at large.

As an Internationally Certified Speaker, Coach & Trainer through ‘The John Maxwell Team’, as well as my Trauma Informed Programming Practice (TIPPS) Certification from the Mental Health Association of NYC I am able to further my influence as an empowerment educator. I vulnerably share my vast experiences in order to provide light and hope to anyone who might find himself or herself where I once was. This as a Shamanic approach where in Native cultures, the Shaman or “village doctor”, had to have experienced the illness themselves before being able to ‘treat’ or ‘heal’ others.

Sagacious Souls LLC is an organization I have founded whose mission is to inspire the innate wisdom we all have by sharing everyday life experiences.

I am creating a YouTube channel that will use and incorporate a trauma informed approach to interviewing in order to create a safe space for vulnerable sharing as well as community awareness & growth.

Sagacious means wise, the name Sagacious Souls is meant to be a description of the approach I take to my speaking endeavors, life/coaching/mentoring as well as the training workshops I create. I don't believe I can make a difference in anyone's life; I believe that we are all wise and the best judge/creator of what we want in each of our perspective lives. It only takes self education, self discipline and self identified action steps to achieve whatever we might be trying to work through at any point and time.

I chose the name sagacious souls because I learn from my audiences as well as coaching/workshop participants just as much OR more than they may be learning from me. With the approach that we all have inner wisdom that shines at different points and times allows space for me to ask questions, dive deeper into what experiences have made that person who they are, what experiences have helped them take control of themselves or their dreams and what knowledge they have to pay forward.
