{Marketing Magic} Scripting your wildly amazing business & life…

Happy Monday to you!

Sending you a warm hug to welcome you into this fresh new week!

Have you been able to get outside lately? I’ve been doing a lot of writing, creating, dreaming and zoom calls from the deck! We have been having an amazing warm, sunny gorgeous spring.

I’ve also been scripting like crazy!

I’m super excited to share with you how I go about Scripting. I’m starting to write a new chapter in my life book. This is how the next chapter comes to life!

This is a powerful tool in your toolbox! Scripting your amazing life and business will help open up new ideas, perspectives, possibilities and confidence!

I invite you set aside some time to dream, script and embody your new image of yourself!

In your wildly successful business script, are you leading retreats? It’s probably the most common dream in my client’s scripts.

So…What better way to get into the energy and start learning about how to lead retreats then to attend one yourself!

I’m leading my next Creative Business Retreat-by-the-Sea in October. It’s right on the oceanfront on the shores of Virginia – where the dolphins love to play! This will be a great place to rejuvenate and reinvent your business. You can find out the juicy details and hear the stories from the amazing women business owners here.

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


Scripting your Success!

Scripting is one of my favorite and most powerful practices!

Here’s my scripting process for creating my own wildly successful life and business. Yes, it’s about claiming what wildly successful looks like for you!

I tend to go in spells where I will script a lot. This is especially when my business and I are going through a growth spurt. That’s when I script every day.

Think of scripting as though you are writing a script for a movie of your life as it is unfolding right now.

You are literally giving the universe a script for your most amazing success. I guarantee it won’t necessarily unfold exactly like your script, but will lead you in the direction of growth and expansion! The universe is very creative!

Here are some ideas to get you started in creating your own script for your own wildly amazing business and life:

  1. You are describing your life as though you are writing about future self – right now. Be her (or him) now. She’s writing this!
  2. Let yourself dream and imagine. Your imagination is the paintbrush for you soul to flourish!

  3. Write it in the present tense. As though it’s happening right now.
  4. Write acknowledgements (accolades) for what you have already accomplished. Write it from a place of FEELING good about your creations, celebrations and successes.
  5. Add in what you are in the process of creating so that it feels active and alive. “Today I love that I get to….”
  6. Include creations for your business but also include what being successful has allowed you to do and be in your life. How is your business success impacting your life?
  7. Give it realness and depth by adding in how you are taking care of yourself – your health, self-care, energy and positive attitude.
  8. Make sure you include how you can easily afford help to support your wildly successful life and business. What does that look like for you? A chef, landscape help, a nanny, a virtual assistant team, a personal assistant, a coach, contractors who built your retreat center! Let yourself dream full out and align with what feels good!
  9. Have fun with it. Make it playful, real and engaging, rather than stiff and professional.
  10. Let it be over-the-top alive and full of feelings and emotions! You get to go all out with juicy descriptive feelings. (did I mention you get to have fun with this?!)

Here are some of my favorite scripting prompts:

(start with these prompts and let the images and words flow…)

  • I am so loving…
  • I am celebrating…
  • I am in wonder and awe of my life. I am appreciating…
  • I can’t believe how easily I…
  • I love the support I received from…
  • Today I love that I get to…
  • I am so appreciating the flow of money in my life. It’s allowing me to easily…
  • I see how I am truly supported by the universe. The most magical thing happened…
  • Isn’t it amazing how easily this idea came to life…
  • I know my unseen friends (guides, angels, god, universe) have been supporting me because…
  • I love the intuitive messages I’ve been receiving…

Bring in all aspects of your life and how everything in your life is supported when your business flourishes! Your relationships with family, friends and partner and how they are supported. Your health and vitality. Money, wealth, abundance and stewardship.

I like to get myself in the mood to dream, believe and create! Move your body or read something inspirational to open up the imagination.

You can write a long big juicy script and then throughout the week write little snippets about your day – as though it’s already amazingly successful! Allow yourself to write about “success” in a way that speaks to you – make it personal to what really, truly calls YOU!

This practice alone can change everything for you. It will open up new ideas, new levels of confidence and conviction and whole new perspectives about what’s possible for you. And then you can’t help but take new aligned actions as the universe supports your unfoldment.

Let me know how it goes! I love to hear how you are calling in your possibilities!

{Marketing Magic} Inside: your marketing idea journal

Happy Monday!

I’m curious…what does Marketing Magic mean to you?

I’ve re-committed to consistently publishing with my newsletter each week. My clients keep quoting the parts they like from that Marketing Magic email. So I renamed it to that very name!

So, what does Marketing Magic mean to you?

A flurry of new clients? Easy marketing? Someone doing it for you? Laughing while you hit record? I’d love to know! You can reply to this email and I just might talk about it in an upcoming edition.

Last week I talked about how to consistently create great content your soul tribe loves. I heard such great feedback about how helpful it was.

I’m going to take it one step further!

One of my suggestions is to use a Marketing Idea Journal.

A Marketing Idea Journal is one of the super useful creative worksheets I include in the Joyful Business Plan. I have decided to share that as a freebie with you today!

So, head on down to read the article about how to use the Marketing Idea Journal and you’ll see a link to print your own copy so you can start collecting Soul Tribe loving content ideas this week!

I hope this helps you to create amazing content . It’s quick and easy when you practice Deep Listening and capture the conversations.

May you have a beautiful, and creative week of much ripple making success!


How To Create a Marketing Idea Journal to Capture Perfect Content Ideas for your Soul Tribe

What should I write about? What should I talk about in my Facebook live?

I get those questions all the time from my clients. There’s something about sitting down in front of the computer that makes your mind go _____.

You actually have a goldmine of content ideas all around you!

Before I let you in on the location of this content treasure – you need a place to keep the ideas so you can come back to it every time you are ready to create.

Where are you going to keep your content ideasMake a decision right now. A word doc? Google drive? Evernote? In a journal?

It doesn’t matter where as long as you make a decision and consistently go to this place to capture content ideas to this content treasure trove.

I use a combo of Evernote (to write out more complex ideas) and I have a Marketing Idea Journal creative worksheet on my desk to capture the constant flow of content possibilities from my conversations.

Being a highly visual and kinesthetic person I like to have it right on my desk.

Throughout the day I make notes after calls, classes and conversations in my Marketing Idea Journal.

After coaching clients all day, I make a note at the end of the day about what topics came up during our calls.

What dreams did I consistently hear about?

Last week, I kept hearing about ideas from clients about creating their own card deck and matching journals – spurred on from the card deck webinar we did a few weeks ago.

Actually many of my clients talk about creating their own card deck – that’s why I invited an expert in so I could host a card deck creation webinar!

What challenges kept coming up for my clients over the last week?

I coached around being afraid of being too much, how to keep things simple and organized while expanding like crazy, and quite a few calls were about perfectionism.

What did they want brainstorming about?

A couple of clients are evolving their message and their Best Client Ever so we brainstormed to get clear on who their new BCE is now and where to find them.

Just from those three questions, I have a slew of possible topics to talk about on Facebook lives, create tips on social media or write about in upcoming newsletters.

You can also note resources, tips, and strategies that you recommend over and over again.

Rather than hoping I will remember those topics when it comes time to write or record, each day I review my day and makes notes on my Marketing Idea Journal. Then when I’m ready to create – wa-la! Magically curated topics that I know my Soul Tribe is interested in!

You also want to have an intentional content plan that includes your key messages for your movement, and creating content to support an upcoming launch, but we’ll dive into that in a future issue.

You can get your very own Marketing Idea Journal creative worksheet here to start collecting the perfect content ideas that you already know your clients want!

Download the Journal here!
