{Marketing Magic} Easy Steps to Your Big YES Dream

Welcome to a fresh new week of possibilities and opportunities to grow and expand!

I keep hearing over and over how Covid is calling so many of us to take a pause and ask what do you really want? What do you really want to be doing with your one precious life? How do you really want to be spending your time in your business?

And, what is the meaningful work you really want to be doing anyway?

Read on in today’s article about how to get out of overwhelm of the Big YES dream of what you really want.

For more inspiration check out my new YouTube Channel where I’m sharing easy, natural ways this summer to pay attention to your business so you’ll be ready for the expansion that’s ready to come your way this fall!

I also want to let you know that I have ONE spot which has opened up for the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea this October. If you are looking for a soul-elixir for your business – this is for you! See below…for more details. I’m sure this one spot will go quick! Reach out so we can talk about it!

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


Easy Steps to Your Big YES Dream

I know you have a big dream of a project, goal or intention that makes your heart sing.

It might be a little whisper of an idea right now. That’s often how the Big YES Dreams start out.

You may be in a place of huge clarity.

Either way…when it’s a Big YES dream it’s easy get stalled or stuck. It can feel so big that it’s overwhelming or scary. (or both)

We end up saying…I’ll do it – someday.

And yet, a part of us feels like it’s withering on the vine along with our lingering dream.

The way to take back your power is to break your big dream down into little steps.

Baby steps.

Micro-movements.

Easy, manageable steps you can say YES to!

If you want to write a book, you don’t actually start writing page 1. You break it down into little itty bitty steps!

If you have a Big Yes Dream of publishing a book then start with a brainstorm what your book is about. Mindmap a brain dump of everything that could be in the book so you can organize your thoughts. Pick one of these subtopics and write what you know. You might research on that subtopic. You could research other books on your topic to see what’s already out there and get clear how yours is different.

Breaking your Big YES Dream into baby steps is key to being able to start. The book dream feels more do-able in small manageable steps.

Once you start with these small bite-size steps…then you allow the magic to happen.

New ideas come to you.

You start to find your voice.

Support from unexpected places appear.

Conversations suddenly support your dream.

Inspiration flows.

Your research leads to whole new thought content.

But you have to take that itty bitty step first.

What is your Big YES Dream? Make a list of your bite-size steps. And put one on your to-do list for this week.

And, if you feel like it, share it with me. I love to hear about your Big YES Dreams!

{Marketing Magic} Dare To Flourish

Greetings from Virginia Beach and my new home!

I’m really feeling the energy of fresh new possibilities! Here is a peek at the place where I’ve moved to. It’s right at a marina by an inlet which is a few blocks to the Chesapeake Bay. 

I grew up in this beach town going fishing and sunning on the ocean, sailing on the bay and boating on the rivers and lots of play on the sand! The salt water is in my blood, my heart and my spirit. I’ve often felt very mermaid-ish…as though a part of me dries up when I’m away from water for too long.

I’m in a program all year that is focusing on Daring to Flourish. This move into my dream is part of my Flourishing! Reclaiming that part of me that loves the relaxed vibe and the grounded inspiration that I feel by the ocean.

I can’t wait to create business and life with the salt air back in my lungs!

I’m curious about you…what would Flourishing look like for you? Where would you DARE to let yourself Flourish?

Read on more about Daring to Flourish!

For more inspiration check out my new YouTube Channel where I’m sharing easy, natural ways to use this funky summer energy to pay attention to your business so you’ll be ready for the expansion that’s ready to come your way this fall!

I also want to let you know that I have ONE spot which has opened up for the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea this October.

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


Daring To Flourish

Flourishing. What does it look like for you?

I’m in a program all year led by my amazing clients/friends/colleagues Michelle Goss and Jeanine Mancusi of Coaching Transformation.

At first the program started off focused on the vision of Flourishing. The fun dreams and powerful use of your imagination.

But what soon came to light was the DARE part.

The Flourishing Vision becomes more clear for you. But do you dare invite it in? Do you dare receive it?

It’s like with my recent move back to the ocean and my hometown of Virginia Beach. Do I dare move back? More importantly (and expansively) do I dare say YES to living on a marina right on the water?

Accepting your Flourishing dream and Daring to say YES means facing all sorts of inner gremlins. Who am I to deserve this dream?

I saw this gorgeous brand new luxury apartment complex on a marina. Obviously on the water, 4 blocks from the Bay and minutes from the oceanfront. It’s a special place with a work out room, yoga studio, co-working areas, firepits to gather round and an emphasis on creating community and being engaged with the beautiful environment all around.

Back in April, I took a friend and visited the area to look at places to live. I went to a variety of other apartment buildings and condos. Houses were going to fast and I wasn’t ready to jump into that fray yet.

We were sitting at dinner at the marina overlooking the boats and water while I through out the pros and cons. My friend, Michele, just smiled. She said I think you already know what you want to do. Ever since I’ve known you, you find a way to the water.

The real answer wasn’t about the logical questions. The list of pros and cons. The real answer came from the question: Will I allow myself to receive this?

Will I let myself Flourish? Full out?!

You would think the obvious answer is yes, of course!

There are all sorts of parts of myself that wanted a say. It was too expensive. Who am I? What if…down the tubes of worry and doubt?

The thing is…I already knew I was going to be in this apartment by the marina. I knew it when I looked at it online before I ever saw the place in person.

It did take extra energy and focus power to stay with that initial gut decision.

To allow myself to flourish!

What about you?

Where do you KNOW deep in your heart or your gut what you truly want in your life or business?

Where are you holding back? Why are you holding back? Instead of resisting or fighting with the gremlins and that part of you who is afraid…give voice and let them say their piece.

Then let that wise one step in and claim what you really want.

{Marketing Magic} Giving Yourself Permission

Welcome to a new week of fresh possibilities!

Are you in back to school mode yet? Or are you still savoring the sultry summer? (or if you’re on the other side of the equator, are you enjoying winter?!)

No matter what your rhythm is in your life…I bet you are starting to think about your plans coming up for your business.

My question this week is to think about who you are becoming and where you are holding yourself back? What permission do you need to give yourself to let yourself become who you are meant to be?

See my article below for more thoughts and inquiries…AND for your very own Permission Slip!

This is one of the most powerful exercise you can do for your business expansion right now.

This is also the week for my big move. Giving myself big permission to nourish myself during this time.

More to share….stay tuned!

For more inspiration check out my new YouTube Channel where I’m sharing easy, natural ways to use this funky summer energy to pay attention to your business so you’ll be ready for the expansion that’s ready to come your way this fall!

I also want to let you know that I have ONE spot which has opened up for the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea this October.

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


Give Yourself Permission

Where are you holding back right now?

In your business…are you kinda sharing your voice? Are you kinda stepping into the leadership of your mission and passion?

Take a moment to connect with your Future Self – the YOU – you are becoming.

Notice where you are holding yourself back. (Look for clues in your heart, throat and gut…are they closed or clenched. Are they feeling sad and yearning to express?)

Where could you step into your voice and leadership more fully?

Where in your business or your life could you be more brave?

What do you need to let go of to be more of your true, authentic self?

And, this is a big one…Where in your life are you holding your joy at bay? Keeping that “enjoyment of your joy” small…for fear you’ll be judged, or your exuberance will be stomped on?

What would happen if you gave yourself permission?

I’m getting ready to embrace my dream of moving back to the ocean this week. Early last week I realized I was holding back my excitement, my joy, my dream of possibilities for fear something or someone would squash it.

And that reality won’t be as great as my dream. For fear of being disappointed.

Fear of being disappointed is a big one. The crazy thing is…when you hold back your joy you are more likely to create the very thing you’re afraid of. Holding back your excitement and enthusiasm…means you dim your light.

With your dimmed light you get back an equal vibration…of low level light, energy and power.

You create the very thing you are afraid of.

So, why not give yourself permission to show up fully, powerfully and practice being that YOU!

This week, I’m full on embracing living fully in my flourishing dream and trusting that the universe has my back.

My Future Self has given me permission to trust the Universal Abundance Current and to live from that belief, which means I’ll be curious, laughing a lot, letting go of struggle, and trusting good things are coming my way!

What about you?

What permission does your Future Self want to give you so you can show up more fully, more powerfully, and more authentically?

I have a special free gift for you – download your very own Permission Slip here!

I’d love to see your Permission Slip – if you dare to share! You can share in the Joyful Business Facebook group over here.
