Joyful Business Show: Ken Mossman Interview

Welcome to my  interview with Ken Mossman of Cirrus Coaching!

As part of the Joyful Business Show, I’m interviewing my clients and other Joyful Business owners to hear how they are rippling out their meaningful work.

As I mentioned last week, I have a not-so-secret dream – all the men in the world could take Ken Mossman’s IAM (Integrated Adult Man) program. Ken is a long time friend, colleague and client who is an amazing coach, leader, writer and podcast host of the show Mojo for the Modern Man.

Watch or listen to my interview as he talks about his defining moment when he knew it was time to move forward with his movement. He also shares more about this important work he is bringing into the world with men.  We also get into what it takes to let your voice be heard through committing to a newsletter and a podcast.  It’s not for the faint of heart!

{Miracle Marketing} slow-brewed, whole-hearted, hand-crafted…

Welcome to a fresh new month!

Can you believe it’s March already?

I love to think about a mantra for a new month. A mantra is a few words or a phrase that you say which reconnects you back to how you want to BE as you are creating.

I have one for the year and it’s still grounding and inspiring me:

I am living a slow-brewed, whole-hearted, hand-crafted life and business!

This connects me to who I want to BE and how I want to create. It’s really working, as you can see from below there is much expansion, creativity and whole-hearted success happening.

It’s amazing how the more I slow down, the more that takes root and blossoms.

I’ve often said over the years that SLOW is fast!

What’s your monthly mantra or theme for the year? How are you doing with it? Is it still guiding and inspiring you to what is most important?

Please enjoy the inspiration and creative sparks in this week’s Miracle Marketing email!

I hope you have a beautiful slow-brewed, whole-hearted, hand-crafted week!


Take Time to Nurture Your Current Clients and Community Every Day

Every day do something in your business to nurture your relationships.

Check in on current clients, past clients, colleagues and industry friends. You never know when planting that seed is the perfect timing for a need they have.

It can be something simple like sending an email, leaving a voice mail or a check in on social media. People are busy and tired right now and they want to be seen and acknowledged.

You don’t have to be selling something. Be generous with your attention and time each day.

What if you picked 3 people each day to check in on?

In a month you’ll have reached out to over 90 people! Simply by taking simple micro-actions each day.

What if…

  • You end up having an inspirational conversation with someone? (inspiration is priceless right now!)
  • You share a tip or piece of advice that helps someone and makes their project, life, career easier. They’ll remember that and remember the impact you had.
  • You send some positive greetings and you feel good and it gives you the energy to do something else important in your business?
  • What if you just happened to show up in their inbox in the right timing and they need what you have and are ready?
  • What if you get into a conversation about what they are dealing with and it turns out you have the perfect solution and they didn’t even know you offered that?

It’s a simple marketing action you can take each day.

Reach out using email, Linked In messaging, facebook messaging, phone call or text messaging – whichever method works for both of you. When in doubt, do what’s easy, It’s better to reach out then stress about getting it perfect!

Remember, what you do today plants seeds in your business to bloom in 30, 60 & 90 days and even 6 months and 1 year.


What my amazing clients are up to!

I have a not-so-secret dream – all the men in the world could take Ken Mossman’s IAM (Integrated Adult Man) program. Ken is a long time friend, colleague and client who is an amazing coach, leader, writer and podcast host.

He is passionate about helping men understand their role in this changing and awakening world, embrace their courage and curiosity and rediscover their creativity. His next cohort starts this month – it might be perfect for you or the man in your life!

PS: I want to share this Client Love I received from one of my dear clients, Christina Boyd-Smith of Corporate Rebel.

“I came to my coaching relationship with Laura as a skeptic. After years with other business coaches, I was bruised and disgusted by the competitive, more-more-more! energy of business development coaching (even as those methods brought me “success”). I was willing to give Laura a try because we have known each other in other contexts, but inside I believed that business coaches are all the same. I was wrong.

Laura is different – creative, intuitive, and spiritual combined with business chops.

As a result of working with Laura, I have an organic relationship with my coaching business. I know what feels aligned with my purpose, values and style, and what doesn’t. I’ve learned to tap into magic and flow in a way that enables me to do the work I love while also structuring a lifestyle I love. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura and will use my toolbox of wisdom for many years to come. If you want to feel aligned and excited about your business while also building “success” by many definitions, Laura is the coach for you.

we’re sitting in the car in the rain…

My son, Nick and I met up a few weeks ago. I was staying with friends near Atlanta and we wanted to get together to take a hike but the weather wasn’t cooperating.

We met at Biscuits & More (it’s a southern thing, vegans – don’t ask). We didn’t want to sit inside since it was a bit crowed so we got our biscuits to go and sat in the car together in the parking lot.

The rain was pinging lightly on the roof and made for a cozy intimate atmosphere. We got into a deep conversation about how he was doing after graduating from college and then getting laid off in a corporate layoff from a company where he thought he had a future as an engineer. Throw in a little roommate discontent and it was a rich adulting kind of conversation.

Then he asked me if I brought the cards? Yes, of course, I did. We have created as a part of our connection a ritual of pulling a card from a card deck when we get together. I had my new Destiny cards and was ready!.

He pulled a card: fog. Of course, it was the perfect card for this rainy day and also for where he was in his life path. He was holding onto the dream of a bright future and yet, the path was pretty foggy.

It opened up the conversation into an even deeper sharing and validating his thoughts and inner wisdom.

It’s so heart-moving to let the card be an invitation to help him open up to his wisdom and express his thoughts. And for me too, to share things with Nick that I haven’t before. We were moving past the mom-son relationship and into relating to each as adults and humans.

Yes, the fog moved and he has clearer skies with a new job, new apartment and has moved out of state! Now we facetime and still bring in a card every now and then. It’s sweet. It’s heart expansive. It more real and authentic.

That my friends, is the power of Oracle cards.

I’m such a huge fan of card decks of all types to foster creativity, expansive thoughts and deeper connections and conversations.

PLUS, it’s a great way to get your signature work into the world and reinforce your brand.

That’s why I am hosting the Queen of Card Decks, Rosie Battista, in a webinar this Thursday to tell us all about card decks!

Check out the details for next week’s webinar here!

Let’s get your creativity and business smarts flowing together!
