{Marketing Magic} No More Writing Marketing Prescriptions

Hello & Welcome to a fresh new week!

I hope you’ve had a lovely long weekend! With summer coming to an end, it’s a bit like savoring the juice of a super sweet orange!

I’ve had my youngest son, Sam in town all weekend. It’s been fun to show him around my new home by the marina. I want him to feel a part of my new chapter here and I can tell he’s excited and glad he came.

Please enjoy today’s article where I share with you how I am no longer writing marketing prescriptions! Read on for what I mean….

For more inspiration check out my new YouTube Channel where I’m sharing easy, natural ways to find your voice and share your authentic self expression in your business.

Wishing you a week filled with big flow, easy expansion, and actions aligned with your soul!


No More Writing Marketing Prescriptions!

I was tired of writing prescriptions for marketing strategies and tactics that my clients didn’t follow.

Take two and call me in the morning.

Create two Facebook videos and let me know how it goes.

Write a newsletter every week and let me know how you are finally starting to find your voice.

And then nothing happens.

Clients have good intentions. They are all enthusiastic and ready to go but then something happens.

Something almost mysterious.

They lose energy. That enthusiasm and commitment they had on the coaching call fades.

Their inner saboteurs got to work and they find themselves stuck in the Doubt Vortex doubting themselves, doing the 2nd guessing two-step about that brilliant strategy.

Maybe this is you, or has been you one time or another?

It’s because it’s not just about having a good strategy, plan or idea.

Those are a dime a dozen.

It’s about your energy.

Are you truly aligned with the strategy, plan or idea? Or is there something in the way?

One of my clients said she felt schizophrenic! There were so many voices in her head and none of them were really her true voice.

Five years ago I started focusing even more on energy healing and alignment work in my coaching. This is the stuff that is so important.

It’s what helps get your energy into alignment so that you’ll actually take action!

It’s similar to a prescription for symptoms. You can take cough medicine for a cough but it doesn’t address what’s making you cough.

Energy healing and alignment works on your beliefs, your stories, shifting the saboteur hijinks while calming your nervous system.

I see a difference with my clients as they take inspired actions that are in energetic alignment with their dream. They are creating signature programs, being consistent with their newsletter, finding their voice like never before, writing books, and receiving more opportunities like never before.

A client told me that I create the environment for her to flourish!

I’ve been a bit quiet about this deeper work. You get a glimpse every now and again as I talk about creating from flow. But it’s ready to be shared in a bigger way soon.

For now, start noticing how when you are super excited about an idea and when the energy mysteriously dissipates! Stay tuned…

2020’s Theme: Dancing on a Moving Surf Board

Does that describe how you’ve been feeling in 2020? Day-to-day having that feeling like you’re dancing on a moving surf board? Trying to learn new moves while the board is slipping underneath you and over the buoyant waves – they just keep a ‘coming!


That’s what 2020 has felt like for me and most of the people I talk with.

We’ve all heard that change is the one constant. But that doesn’t do justice to describing the feelings and challenge of living with the constant waves of change and uncertainty as we have been doing all year.

While we may see some signs of hope on the horizon, the fast pace of change isn’t going to stop. Everything I read and listen to says that the certainty is – change + fast.

So how do we adjust? How do we get uber grounded and ramp up our resiliency so we can lead, grow our business and create those positive ripples we know are in our heart to create?

And still acknowledge that the toll it takes to keep navigating these turbulent waters?


Starting next week I’m going to be sharing a short video series to talk about this and what do we as solopreneurs do to thrive in this newly evolving environment.

Meanwhile, I’d love to hear from you if you have a few moments…

How’s your dancing on a moving surf board going in your life and business?

What’s working?


What are you worried about?

Does Your Business Spark Joy?

I’ve been working with quite a few clients to “Marie Kondo” their businesses!

With the state of the world we have been asked to slow down our outside activities and it’s bringing up a lot for us and our businesses and what is really important.

One of the big questions rising up is: Does your business bring you joy?

And if it isn’t, then it’s time to take a closer look.

Many of us started our business with the joy of doing the work we love. As your business grows, evolves and time passes… does it still bring you joy?

Here are some questions for you to ponder…

Is the whole business under water with joy or is it a certain part, like marketing or technology?

Is doing the work bringing you joy… but the marketing feels out of alignment with your soul’s work? You don’t have to buy into all the hype that you must market a certain way.

There is another way to grow your business that is from total inner alignment and authenticity. You can create meaningful work AND meaningful marketing. (PS: That’s a place I can help you with!)

Is your business bringing you joy except when it comes to getting online or with technology issues? Who can help you with moving your business more virtual and making use of the amazing virtual opportunities to teach, coach and do your work online?

Do you have creative ideas and dreams that are outdated? Perhaps holding on to these old yearnings is weighing you down.

What is it time to let go of?

What will letting go allow more room for?

Where have you been holding yourself so small, that only a little tiny bit of joy can pass through to you?

What if you expanded your vision of yourself and your capacity to receive joy, love, success and abundance?

I’d love to hear what thoughts these questions stir up as you think of where in your business sparks joy (or not)!

Please feel free to share with me as I love knowing what is going on for you.

Wishing you a day filled with JoyFlow Sightings! (Evidence of joy, success, abundance, beauty and connection.)
