Client Retreat with Elaine Alpert


Client Retreat with Elaine AlpertI love days with my clients! There is always this deep magic that unfolds throughout the day.

We focused on Elaine Alpert’s Mindpeace Miracles non-profit, streamlining current programs and exploring her new art + writing + healing + coaching program for moms surviving loss through suicide.

It’s going to be so powerful and it’s so needed. Oh and we focused on marketing essentials, her new podcast and fundraising opportunities and a powerful mindset to support her *shine*.

Wow what a day! I love what I get to do!

#2 Black Friday Weekend Goodness – Joyful Business Studio!

by Laura West.

One of my core philosophies is “When you feel good – you’ll do good! For yourself and others!”

Align your energy with Feeling Good.

Create morning rituals, move your body, drink water and stay hydrated, have a creative practice… these are all things that will help you get in alignment or stay in alignment with your natural flow of joy, abundance and optimism.

When you feel good…

It’s easier to do good.

When you feel good… it’s easier to pick up the phone, get a great idea for your next article, email about that speaking agreement, or follow up again with that potential client!

It seems simple.

It is simple.

It’s not always easy though.

We have created all sorts of fascinating thoughts, beliefs and actions to get in the way of our brilliant plans!

You need both…

Smart Marketing Strategies + Inside Joy Management = Success!

That’s one of the reasons I created the Joyful Business Studio. So you would have a place to go to tap into a community who thinks like this, lives like this and wants to support each other in creating a business like this!

The great news is with our November special you can join us in the Studio each month for coaching and marketing and mindset training… and you’ll save money when you sign up now! 🙂

I want to invite you to stop struggling and going at this alone and join us in the Joyful Business Studio… where I’ll help you learn and integrate this way of being into your doing.

As I mentioned, a delicious bonus… when you join us in November you save $$ – yay! You can lock into a lower monthly membership while getting all the good support, community and training!

Here are the details you need to find out more about the Joyful Business Studio.

I can’t wait to see you there with other coaches, changemakers, creative entrepreneurs and fascinating positive ripplers making a difference for your own life and the lives of others!


Are You a Business Renegade?


At the last Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea in Virginia Beach, I sat one afternoon listening to these women’s stories and dreams… including the secret dreams that they were just starting to articulate perhaps for the first time… and I realized that we are all bucking the system.

If you are reading this and in my community then you are probably a renegade too.

We are tired of the boxes that have been created for women entrepreneurs, online marketers, moms, single women, married partners. We just can’t take it any longer!

Retreat by the Sea

I hear stories from women (and some wise men) sharing their deepest desires that are unique to her… they don’t look like what everyone else is doing. They want to do it THEIR way!

I hear stories from women who want to…

  • Travel in an RV with her computer and her online business she can take anywhere.
  • Make fantastic money while working part time so there is plenty of time to enjoy being with her children.
  • Harness her incredible psychic ability and finally let it out in her business – as a real estate agent!
  • Make great money so she can help take the financial burden and pressure off her husband.
  • Fund a 10 week summer vacation at the lake so the family can just BE together and enjoy the simple life she enjoyed as a child.
  • Get rid of her mammoth house that’s been the time capsule for her family and start fresh in a little cottage with less responsibility and more freedom.
  • Travel, travel, travel. A common desire is the ability, freedom, and financial capacity to lead an adventurous travel life.
  • Live for a month in a flat in Northern Italy.
  • Stop being the internationally successful coach and start living her retirement years the way SHE wants to live them… traveling and leading retreats.
  • Stop compromising and living a small life in a place that doesn’t fuel her and move to Asheville, NC where people are in nature, engaged and enjoy life! (Update on this one! She just moved to Asheville last month! Celebration Dance!)
  • Burning the ship of the big business overhead they used to have and creating a business that is simple, easy, and successful.
  • As a seasoned coach, step into her legacy work – the work that is hers to create and bring to the world.
  • Let go of the marketing hamster wheel pressure and build a tribe, and share her message in a way that is authentic, creative and fun!
  • Let go of resisting marketing and not doing anything by chucking the marketing lingo and rules so she can grow her business in a way that FEELS GOOD!
