My story


After decades of being a seeker, I finally became a FINDER - of success & happiness. I'd love to help you do the same.

I spent 40 years 'trying' (and failing) to create life on my own terms.
Then I discovered the transformative power of consciousness.

Hey there, I'm Helen Hunter Mackenzie, and I'm so thrilled that you're here visiting my virtual home.

I'm a business and spiritual mentor to thousands of creative women entrepreneurs. I'm also a writer, a mom, a modern-day mystic, a bit of a muse, and the creator of several popular online products and programs.

I assume you've come to this page to see what I'm all about and how I came to be doing what I'm doing. I can tell you that if you've ever felt like you're. . .

  • Stuck with ideas you don't know how to move forward on
  • Living in an endless loop where the same pattern keeps repeating over and over again in any area of your life
  • Low on energy and drained of the passion you once had for creative projects, or business, or life itself
  • Frustrated as hell because you cannot for the life of you seem to manifest what you want
  • Or in ANY other way held back from the life you KNOW you're meant to be living

I get it. I sooooo get it.

These days, I'm living a life wildly beyond any dreams I'd once imagined possible.

It's my passion to help women start or grow their businesses through the power of personal transformation. (Or, perhaps more correctly, to help women experience transformation through the power of starting or growing their businesses.)

I run my business completely online, which means I can work from anywhere. And when I say 'work,' I mean 'do my most favoritest stuff ever and get paid well for it.'

I call beautiful, sunny Southern California my home, and I wake most mornings with an absolute zest for life, combined with the peace that only comes from knowing, and connecting with, my own divine nature.

It hasn't always been this way, though (or even close).

I was raised in a strict religious household (that's me on the far right in the photo). My parents were missionaries when I was very young and we lived in Iran. My family continued to be deeply involved in the church my entire childhood.

Possibly because of my upbringing - or maybe just because - I never felt good enough, worthy enough, or like I fit in when I was growing up.

I always believed I was meant to do something special, but instead I spent most of my early life simply trying to find my way to some sense of happiness.

In my 20s and early 30s, that happiness seemed to come to me. I blossomed into the woman I'd wanted to become - on the outside.

By the time I was 38, though, I'd spent most of my life dissatisfied with where I was: job, relationships, money, home, car. With the exception of my absolutely awesome son and a few dear friends, very little in my life seemed to be exactly what I wanted.

In fact, I'd settled for 'good enough' so many times over the years, I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. And each time I did, I told myself I should just be happy with what I had (because wanting more is selfish, right?).

The trouble was, I had these DESIRES. And they weren't going anywhere.

I wanted freedom and fulfillment in my work - and felt stifled and stagnant in my career.

I wanted financial abundance - and even though I was making lots of money, I NEVER felt that there was enough.

I wanted peace - and felt anxious all the time.

I wanted to feel deeply loved - and never felt good enough, no matter how much attention I got or how many men fell head over heels for me.

I wanted to make a difference in the world - and instead reported to a 'job' every day where I was just going through the motions.

All of my desires seemed so far out of my reach, so I distracted myself with shopping, entertainment, and over-investing in my intimate relationships (read: working at being perfect for everyone else but ME).

My 'spiritual awakening' began somewhere around 2002, when my life that looked great on the outside began to fall apart like a house of cards.

My 'perfect marriage' crumbled to pieces and I became a single mom. I went deeply into debt because of a compulsive shopping addiction. And I circled a cul-de-sac of insanity as I tried side business after side business to replace my 6-figure career (with no success).

What I didn't realize during that time was that I had these incredible powers of manifestation. And I was using them! Just not for what I really wanted. 

Instead, I was creating by default.

I was imagining into existence a variety of scenarios and outcomes - some of which I loved, most of which I loathed. As I began to wake up to this idea and shift my internal energy, my life began to change.

At first, it was AMAZING. I had these moments of breathtaking clarity as I realized that all the outer circumstances I'd been chasing in life weren't going to bring me true fulfillment.

Then there were those moments when I felt. . . lost. Rudderless. Adrift at sea without a compass.

I remember a day in late 2009 when I told my then-boyfriend how alone and strange I felt in this relatively new space. I knew, for instance, that compulsive shopping would never bring me joy - but I didn't actually know what WOULD instead.

And then one weekend, in the fall of 2011, I had an epiphany while reading a particularly amazing self-help book (that an inner voice had insisted I pick up and read).

I realized that ALL of the conditions in my life had been set up for me, BY me, based solely on my consciousness.

I also realized that, if that was the case, then I could recreate my life just by changing my consciousness.

Within only a few short months of this transformative weekend, I quit a decades-long, cushy 6-figure career and plunged headlong into entrepreneurship.

(With about $2500 in the bank, no clients lined up, and no savings or investments of any kind.)

Since then, being a business owner has helped me grow in ways I never knew I even needed to grow.

And although I teach and consult mostly about marketing and entrepreneurship, behind it all is my true passion: self-realization and transformation.

Because the power of shifting your consciousness to discover your inner creator is a power unlike any other.

You can learn to market, sell, set up systems, hire team members, schmooze, tweet, and otherwise grow and publicize your business -- but without the INTERNAL foundation for success, your efforts will either be unsuccessful, or you'll 'succeed' and be miserable anyway.

Without a doubt, the most useful business skills I've developed over the years are the 'soft' skills that have come from intense study, quiet meditation, and deep contemplation.

In fact, most of the content I teach today is a product of divine revelation (in other words, rather than repeating what everyone else is saying about 'the way things work', I'm downloading directly from the infinite essence that lives within me, and you, and everyone).

On the other hand, I'm a practical girl.

That's why you won't find me touting any tools, tips, or techniques that have no scientific or logical basis.

(That decades-long career of mine? It was spent running clinical trials in the med tech industry, so I come to the table with a healthy dose of skepticism and reason.)

Instead, what you'll find is the foundation for REAL transformation.

I draw from ancient spiritual texts and philosophies, literature and myths, and the fields of astrology, numerology, and tarot -- and inject a modern (and often humorous) vibe so that the deeply spiritual or esoteric finally makes SENSE.

And more importantly, so that you can have what you want on the physical plane, while feeling immensely fulfilled on the spiritual plane.

If you want to experience REAL security & certainty in life - and in business - work with Helen. She’s a rare and smart gem. And a wee bit odd & quirky.
— Erika Lyremark
Can’t tell you how much your instruction and WISDOM have changed my life, except to say that it’s impacted my job, my marriage, my stress level, and my state of mind – not necessarily in that order. :)

I feel “at peace.” Ahhhh. . .
— Kim Bultman
I must say - I just LOVED working with you. I felt comfortable opening up as you have a very encouraging presence.
— Sonal Gertwen

These days, as I said, my life is blessed beyond measure.

I have the freedom to run my business from anywhere, doing work I absolutely love, for unbelievable pay - and which creates real transformation in my clients' and customers' lives.

I've been able to BE THERE for my son in a way that I never could when I was trapped in a corporate career.

I get to decide what to create, and when to create it.

Most importantly, I have the satisfaction of knowing I'm using my gifts for the highest good of all concerned - instead of wasting my talents in a job I don't love, and frittering away money acquiring things that will never make me happy.

Oh and, did I mention? I love me some irreverent humor. 

(Who says self-realization is all serious and stuff?)

As I write this, I'm trying to think of a joke or something to demonstrate what I mean. I think, though, if you learn more about the business through the eyes of my team, you'll get the picture.

Or, you can go here to learn all about my odd quirks.

Okay, enough about me. I look forward to learning more about you!

Hunt me down on your favorite social media platform (see the footer below for links) or feel free to get in touch by email. 

(Seriously. Email me. I'd LOVE to hear from you.)

If you're looking for an official bio for press or speaking opportunities, here it is.

And finally, don't leave before downloading your FREE meditation and guide (this little package is a real treasure!) to get started manifesting the business you want and a life that fulfills you. 

Your voice was so soothing and yet inspiring, wonderful combination. I am that woman in the cabin... wise woman/sage wild woman/ goddess... It really helped me hone in on what I offer, and the feeling of how it feels when I am in that zone.

Harrison, Visual Design Consultant

I'm a professional gamer (well, I could be, I'm that good). I'm also a pretty darn good lacrosse player and I put a lot of time into improving my game.

I'm very funny and always make my friends and my mom laugh. Also, I just 'get' things and intuitively know what to say, and when. My mom used to call me her Buddha Boy (before I became a teenager and would be embarrassed by that nickname) 'cause I've always said the most profound things at the simplest moments. 

Bonus! I'm getting so tall that my mom is shorter than me now. Which is awesome because now I don't have to listen to her anymore.

(Mom, if you're reading this, you KNOW I'm joking. Heh.)

My job here at Team Hunter Mackenzie is to be an inspiration to my mom, first of all.

I have a great eye for design, however, so I've been appointed the role of approving most of the graphics that leave HHM headquarters, as well as all the web pages.

I'm also very intuitive (see above) and have better than average critical thinking skills, so 'the boss' tends to run a lot of ideas by me.

If you have any design tips for Team Hunter Mackenzie, you can send them to my mom and she'll pass them on to me. I'm a smart kid who doesn't give his personal details over the internet. ;)

Percy, Official Mascot & Resident Therapist

I'm on a mission to see how many seconds out of my life I can be the most adorable creature my humans have ever beheld. So far, so good.

I like to curl myself into the shape of a fibonacci spiral, and can also often be found sleeping with my chin resting on a nearby surface, even if it appears to the humans that I am uncomfortable in such a position. I also have a particular fondness for tent-like structures created by blankets and comforters.

I frequently stare deeply into my humans' eyes while contemplating the meaning of tuna. And I enjoy a good foot massage when I can get one.

My 'mom' and my 'brother' are both acceptable caretakers, although I often plot to kill them or escape my home, using mainly spoons (I saw it in a movie once).

That's just the way we cats are.

In the meantime, while I let my humans live (uncultured swine that they are!), I regularly dispense psychological advice to them using the voice of a pretentious Englishman.

A Reminder, If You Need It


Read this is you're feeling low. Let it lift you up. Share it with someone you love.

A Reminder, If You Need It


Read this is you're feeling low. Let it lift you up. Share it with someone you love.

You got this. Seriously.

No matter what things may look like in your life right now.

You have totally got this.

You know why I know? Because there's no good, logical reason why you wouldn't.

Think about it.

Each of us enters this world the same way - being birthed by a mother.

(Except Superman and Jesus, of course.)

Although we each enter the world with different life circumstances, there is NO logical reason to assume that one of us is more worthy, capable, or deserving of success than another.

You are not here by accident.

Nature doesn't make 'extra' people. So it follows that you're here for a reason.

My personal belief is that the reason we're here is to find our way back home, to our true selves.

(And by true selves I mean God-selves. . . Creators. . . expressions of the Divine.)

In that vein, here are some helpful nuggets to keep in mind (and you might want to bookmark this page so you can come back and read it whenever you're feeling lost). . .

It's not too late - or too early - to create the life you want.

You are instilled with the power at birth and it stays with you throughout your life.

The reason the vast majority of us don't ever do what we REALLY yearn for in life is that we tell ourselves a story that we're too young, or too old, or too inexperienced, or too far down a wrong path, or. . .

The stories are endless. But so are the opportunities to rewrite those stories.

In fact, with every single breath you get the chance to be reborn. To decide how you will live your life instead of going along on autopilot. To decide that you will be, do, and have all of the things your heart desires.

Breathe in. Decide.

Breathe out. Take action (however small) on your decision.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Things will get better.

Even if they're good, they'll get better.

And if they're kinda sucky, well. . . This too shall pass.

And when all hope seems lost, when everything seems to be going wrong (especially when you feel like you are doing everything 'right'!). . .

Well, that's when you are right around the corner from a breakthrough that will make it all make sense.

I promise.

(I've been there myself many times, so I can cross my heart on this one.)

The universe is set up to support you.

It's set up to support ALL life, and to expand and progress.

That's the nature of Life itself, and if it were any other way then Life would destroy itself.

Give that a moment of contemplation.

Life does not destroy - Life creates

Our consciousness - our perception of what's going on in this physical realm - can appear to destroy, through evil, hatred, violence, or simply through decay and deterioration.

But that's simply our perception - and perception can be changed.

Right now you can choose to perceive a supportive, expansive universe in which to plant and grow your intentions.

There is meaning in every event and circumstance in your life.

Sure, you can choose to deny this and make yourself miserable about how things are unfolding in your life.

You have free will, and you always have the option of exercising it to create your own heaven or hell.

However, when you use the events of your life to learn and grow and progress. . .

Guess what? You'll learn and grow and progress.

No one can prove that there is meaning in every event, by the way, except through personal experience.

I've seen people dispute this truth by saying, "How dare you tell a suffering person that there is meaning to their suffering," which just boggles my mind. 

Why would you want to find ZERO meaning in a 'bad' circumstance and simply wallow in self-pity?

As I said, though, you've always got the choice. I encourage you to choose that which brings you joy.

It's okay to be yourself, in life and business.

In fact, the ONLY way to be truly fulfilled and feel successful is to be yourself.

By that I don't mean be thoughtless and rude and trample on other people's feelings.

(That's actually not being 'yourself' - that's being 'your ego.')

I mean, fully express who you are instead of trying to do things 'right' and thinking that if you were only "more like so-and-so" you'd have a better experience of life.

You're YOU for a reason.

(Remember, nature doesn't make 'extra' just to fill up space.)

Own your YOU-ness. Stop trying to be anyone else.

Because you know what?

What you think makes you weird or less-than or somehow not right, is EXACTLY what we most love about you.

For realz.

You are not doing anything wrong and you're not broken. No matter how rough it gets.

If I had to narrow down this manifesto to just ONE point, this would be it.

Too many of us are walking around thinking we've messed up our lives, or messed up that moment or that opportunity or that interaction with someone. . .

And the truth is, we're just human.

We're all walking different paths, so the 'mistakes' we make may be different, but at the end of the day we're ALL doing the best we can.

And if you're not doing anything wrong, then your fellow humans aren't either. 

Judge not - yourself or anyone else.

Start with yourself, though.

You're doing just fine. I mean it.

Everything is okay.

It's not "going to be okay" - it IS okay.

Right now.

That's because the universe supports you, and you're doing everything just fine - remember? ;)

Seriously, the sooner you can convince yourself on a deep, abiding level that everything is okay, the more beautiful and fulfilling life will be for you.

You might disagree, arguing that things are definitely NOT okay right now, and I get it. I've felt that way plenty of times in my life.

The truth is, though, that any moment you spend disagreeing with reality is a moment you are choosing (remember that free will thing?) to make yourself miserable.

If people can live through poverty, imprisonment, violence, disability, and other seemingly 'not okay' circumstances and still choose to believe that everything is okay (and there are plenty of examples of people doing just that) - then you can choose the same mindset.

I'm not dismissing what might appear to be problems - merely reminding you that. . .

You are in control of your life.

You really are.

But only 100% of it. ;)

Yes, events happen on this physical plane. You're not single-handedly controlling all of the stars and planets and governments and corporations and families.

However, events happen, and then YOU decide what they mean and how to respond or react to them.

Therein you shape your life.

You've probably heard this a thousand times, no? So are you REALLY living it?

If not, I encourage you to start now.

(Just remember to give yourself a break if you feel resistance to this idea. Remember, you're doing the best you can.)

You matter.

There is some interaction you've had with someone in the world (and more likely a LOT of interactions with a lot of someones) that's made a difference.

Maybe you've just smiled at someone when they particularly needed a smile.

Perhaps you've given a compliment to a stranger that caused her to feel more worthy - thus leading her to take a certain action which began a chain reaction of events that changed the entire course of her life.

Or you've been there for a friend, or made food for a family member, or dropped someone off at the airport.

Or you've bathed your baby, swaddled him and rocked him in your arms, read to her bed time, sung him to sleep, wiped her tears.

Maybe you've showered your fur baby with love and treats and walks and snuggles.

And perhaps you've done other things - like taking the time to write down your insights and expertise and publishing them for us to read. Or putting them in a program, or a speech, or a workshop - and delivering your wisdom for our benefit.

Maybe you've just sent an email or a text to a friend, partner, colleague, client, or customer that made them go, "Huh, I never thought of it that way."

Perhaps you've done ALL of that.

Probably you've done MOST of that, at least.

You matter. And we are so very thankful that you're here.
