{Marketing Magic} Insights and Healings from the Retreat

Welcome to a fresh new month!

It’s hard to believe it’s November already. The year seems to suddenly have sped up!

I am still savoring last month’s 7th Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea! It was so good! So…needed, desired…and long awaited for since we missed last year with the pandemic.

Here is a picture of these beautiful, powerful, passionate business women!

In this week’s article I talk more about the retreat and the insights, shifts and power transformation that happened to create this multi-layered nurturing experience that healed, rejuvenated and reinfused their Soul Work!

Wishing you a week filled with joy, wonder, awe, imperfect actions aligned with your soul!


Insights and Healings from the Retreat

Last week I hosted and led my 7th Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea experience. I am still savoring the heart expanding conversations, connections, the dreams and deep healing that happened on the edge of the ocean and by the light of the full moon.

Mother Nature was in all her beauty as she supported us with a nourishing environment of morning sunrise light shows (each day was a unique every-changing palette of beauty and surprise), beautiful nurturing sunny days and the most amazing full moon shining down on the ocean with sparkles of moonlight radiating a path on the ocean that felt like it led right up to our fairy light drenched deck!

I want to share with you a few of the insights and healing shifts that took place during this magical experience. You can get a glimpse of the retreat but more importantly you can listen for what resonates true for you too right now.

  1. Beautiful environments matter. They help you relax, they open your heart for greater truth and wisdom and possibilities. It’s not something we tend to get in our every day living. We can get moments but getting away into a new beautiful environment allows more to arise.
  2. We need safe places to dream bigger. Whatever bigger looks like for you. It’s very individual. We need places to go to speak these dreams so they start to take shape and come into being. We can see what is wanting to be birthed by being in conversation about it. We get clear about what it is and what it isn’t.
  3. It’s super vulnerable to share these big dreams. We aren’t used to claiming our deepest hearts desires. We have protective walls built around these dreams and we need safe places to try them on, get support and see the ideas and connections sprout.
  4. In sharing our big dreams, we find our voice. Your voice matters. To take up space. To take the time. It matters. When you do this you step into your powerful identity as a leader in your life, your medicine and your work.
  5. Believe in your medicine. Your medicine is your unique vision, gifts, expertise and way that you would create a balm to help heal and contribute to your part of the world.
  6. It takes commitment to stand in the vulnerability of your rebel message. We all have a message based on our contribution of gifts and expertise and it’s freeing to acknowledge that it is a non-traditional approach. That it’s different, maybe even considered weird by some. And THAT is what is needed and will create new solutions to the struggles we see around us.
  7. Make time for magic, fun and creativity. Giving yourself permission to play is what opens up your creativity, reconnects your head, heart and body so you feel wholeheartedly present and powerful!

There’s more. So much more.

And this is a glimpse into what’s possible when you choose to let go of the traditional pushing and pressuring…and allow yourself to experience your true authentic self, your true power and voice!


Are you ready to step into your Soul Work?

Let’s set up a time to talk about how you can get your Soul Work out into the world in a bigger way that feels natural, authentic and even fun! Together we’ll access your deeper voice, leadership and creativity…while shifting those blocks that are getting in the way of you growing your beautifully successful business.

(Beautifully successful in ALL ways – meaningful, impactful, financial)

I’d love to talk with you about liberating your true voice, intuition, energy alignment, creativity, along with the practical doing stuff that gets you engaged with your Soul Tribe.

Just send me an email and we’ll find a time to talk!

{Marketing Magic} What’s your Red Thread?

Hello & Happy Monday!

I have been slowly moving back in business mode after my big move. I have to admit that I have been so savoring decorating and buying fresh new things for my home. My youngest son took several key pieces of furniture last year to outfit his college house so I’ve been buying furniture and major décor.

So, this is the first time in decades where I get to ask the question – what do “I” want? It’s been such fun being in the abundance and creativity!

I’m also so in tune with how important your environment is to creating a place for you to flourish! Environmental Energy is one of the 7 Personal Energy Systems.

The creativity in my home is inspiring creativity in my business! I love how that happens. Creativity begets more creativity! My energy is in full on expansion mode!

I hope you enjoy today’s article about finding the Red Thread in your business. Taking the time to find your soul theme that has been with you throughout your whole life. This will help you align with your true voice and message.

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!


What’s your Red Thread?

What to do? Which idea should I go with?

That was what my client was struggling with. Should she focus more on the art or more on the coaching aspect of her new business?

She SOOO wanted me to tell her what to do.

I get it. I could feel her pain and the pressure.

We love clarity. We just want to know what to do!

We really want to know the PERFECT answer.

Except… we don’t always like to hear the perfect answer. It often sets us off and makes us rebel!

So what is that about? When we want clarity and someone tells us which idea to follow, which strategy to focus on or what should be our message – why do we rebel and resist? We said we wanted the perfect answer…so what’s the deal?

It’s because we are asking the wrong question.

Stop asking for the perfect answer.

You need to let go of perfect.

There is no PERFECT one size fits all answer for the best marketing strategy or business idea. (yes, you can breathe a sigh of relief if you’ve been searching for it!)

The RIGHT answer is the answer that is aligned for your mind, heart and soul.

It will look different than someone else’s RIGHT answer.

For my client, we pulled our focus out so we could see the bigger landscape of her life path. We reviewed her Unique Beautiful Brilliance – talents, skills, strengths, experiences and passions that she has acquired along the journey of her life and careers.

Soon it became clear that what she was looking at were tools and bodies of work she had picked up along the way. The tools weren’t her message.

We started looking for her Red Thread. Or what I call your consistent Soul Theme that runs you, calls you to show up. It informs your every decision whether you are aware of it or not.

In ancient texts, they speak of the Red Thread as a soul connection with a person who you will meet in your life who holds a key to your life purpose. I believe the same works for experiences that happen along your journey in business. They are all connected even when you can’t see it yourself. They all are pulling you toward your soul purpose.

Your soul theme has you rebel against someone else’s “perfect” answer! Because it’s not YOUR aligned answer. It’s not the right fit for you. It’s not wrong, it’s just not yours.

My client’s Red Thread running through her life was around Living a Grand Creative Life Adventure! Researching her ancestry which led to getting married in Hungary. Writing for a publication that enabled her to travel and dive deep into new cities around the world. Creating nurturing and creative experiences for her family and friends. Plus…art, coaching, writing, creativity in all forms. A deep belief in possibilities!

Now we were getting somewhere!

She was lit up too!

Once she could let go of needing to have the PERFECT(!!) answer – and holding on tightly to that pass/fail mentality of having the PERFECT answer…everything started opening up. She was relieved, excited and she was back in FLOW!

It was never about the tools.

It was about looking for the Red Thread of her Soul Theme that is in alignment with her life path. It’s what connects these seemingly different experiences.

It’s now informing her business path and message.

How about you?

Write out your experiences throughout your life and careers/business. What talents, skills, experiences did you acquire along the way? What are the themes?

These are your Unique Beautiful Brilliance clues for your life’s work, your great work!


Are you ready to work with a business coach…who isn’t like any other business coach around?

Isn’t it time to let go of the internal pressure of hustling, grinding and trying to fit into someone else’s idea of what you SHOULD be doing to be successful.

Instead, imagine owning your own beautiful brilliance magic and being in total alignment of your energy, power and focus so that you are wide open to the field of possibilities.

As one client says…I’ve done a total 180! I love sharing my message now and find marketing is actually fun and rewarding!

Imagine your business where flow is a daily way of life rather than feeling that internal pressure to constantly be hustling for results.

From this place you are so much more potent and so much more is possible for you and your business…with ease and joy!

This is what’s possible when you clear your blocks and limiting beliefs…you create with the Universal Abundance Current supporting you. I know…that sounds pretty woo. Actually, it’s full on woo-woo! But it’s true and surprisingly practical. It’s what makes the practical stick.

If this sounds intriguing, let’s talk about you, your business and liberating your power, your creativity and your success! Just reply to this email and I’ll send you over a calendar link for us to talk.
