{Marketing Magic} Are you Excited about Your Offer?

Hello & Welcome to a fresh new week!

My question for you today is, “Are you excited about your main offer?”

Take a moment to check and see if you are feeling enthusiastic about your main package or service. Are you excited about sharing it? If not, why would your clients be? LOL, seriously though.

Know that if YOU are excited, it’s being communicated through your energy, presence and actions(or lack of!). Read on to see what could be happening for you and what to do.

Stay tuned for something special this week…it’s my birthday week and I am excited to share with you my newest vibe shifting product on my birthday! Watch for emails coming from me on Thursday!

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


Are you Excited about Your Offer?

Are you excited about your main service, package or offer?

If not, what’s going on? It’s time to get curious because if you’re not excited then how in the world do you expect to attract clients?

If you find yourself uninspired or even forgetting what your main service is then you definitely want to check in with these four common energy blocks. Then commit to making changes.

Your energy, presence and leadership make a difference!

#1: Is your main offer outdated?

Has the industry changed significantly? Well, actually, what industry hasn’t changed significantly after the last year we’ve all had?

Take a look at your offer and see how you could update what your client’s problems, struggles and aspirations are. Do they have new dreams that they were ignoring before the pandemic and now they can’t ignore any longer? It’s time to include that new yearning and hunger!

People and companies are looking for more support with emotional agility, resiliency and stress management as we all adjust to this new way of being with uncertainty and rapid changes. What could you add to your package to help address these needs. Think: bonus meditations, mindfulness tools, emotional resiliency apps.

Many people are finally at the point where they can no longer compromise their values, gifts and passions. There’s a big opportunity to help your clients get clear on what those inner motivations are and add these components to your offers in a way that makes your work even deeper and the transformation even greater.

#2: You’ve outgrown your Main Offer.

Maybe your core service doesn’t reflect the work you do now. It worked a couple of years ago, but now you’ve changed. Your business evolves as you grow and evolve in your expertise and your Unique Beautiful Brilliance.

For example, if you are studying intuition and spirituality and your offer is 100% practical, then there is going to be a disconnect.

Perhaps you’ve been focusing on bringing more creativity into your life and business and you see there is an opportunity to bring a more creative approach into your business. Make sure you include what this new depth will add to your client’s transformation and results.

#3: Your Best Client Ever (BCE) has changed.

It’s common for your clients to shift and change as your business grows. One of my clients is a Leadership Coach who started out working with professional women. It evolved into a specialty for women in top healthcare roles. Her packages and programs have changed to be more specific for their struggles, opportunities and dreams – both in her descriptions and also by what she includes in her packages.

It’s common when you first start out that you focus on one niche or type of client and then as you become more aware of your passions, strengths, and soul’s path that your clarity about your Best Client Ever increases and you see your sweet spot of impact…and income!

#4: Sometimes you are just bored.

Have you been doing it so long that you get bored with it even though the clients keep coming? You might love your clients but be a bit bored with the same thing over and over.

Now is the time to give your package a makeover! What would make it more engaging for YOU? If you’re not sure – go back and look at the other options above! Your answer is probably that you’ve evolved, your interests, focus and passions have shifted or your clients have.

Now is an ideal time to make a big leap! Create a Dream Offer – You know that package you’ve only dreamed about sharing? Including a retreat to a beautiful location, or like one of my clients who wanted to take men on fishing trips – get them away from work and daily pressures to talk about what really matters. Adding in an intuitive reading, partnering with a colleague who has another expertise.

What would your Dream Offer look like?

So, back to the original question. Are you excited about your Main Offer? If not, what’s going on…don’t let it keep drifting. It’s time to get creative and make a change!

It’ll make you more alive in your business again – which is the uber client attractor factor!


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 and 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. Where when you wake up in the morning you can feel your presence in the Universal Abundance Current and you can’t wait to share your gifts to help your clients’ lives!

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 the new marketing paradigm that is available to you. Let go of the hustle and doing what works for someone else. It’s time to lead and market – being Beautifully YOU!

If this sounds intriguing, let’s talk about you, your business and liberating your power, your creativity and your success! Let’s have a call about you’re your soul-led business! No high pressure – it’s a conversation to see what’s possible! Reply to this email and I’ll send you over a calendar link for us to talk.

{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!

Give Yourself Business Dream Time

Summer is the perfect time for Business Dream Time! For me, I have been spending an extraordinary amount of time on the deck and on the porch swing just feeling into what wants to happen next. What wants to be born? Really letting myself dream.

When you are at the pool, walking along the ocean, or just sitting on the deck catching an early morning sunrise….let your vision get a little fuzzy and let in the muse.

The key word here is LETTING. Letting yourself be in a state of wonder. Asking…I wonder….

I wonder…what’s possible for the rest of this year?

I wonder…what makes my heart expand and my energy be inspired?

I wonder…what would be fun to create this year?

I wonder…where my business wants to grow next?

I wonder…what am I ready to let go?

I wonder…what movement is waiting for me to lead?

Let the ideas and visions come into your awareness. Don’t shut them down or edit yet. That’s the hardest part…allowing the ideas and possibilities come to you without shutting it down too quickly.

Have your journal nearby so you can free write or mind map the ideas that come to you.

You’ll want to do this more than once. Keep capturing the ideas…big and small.

You never know what idea will come alive and spark action. Or, the universe will deliver synchronicities to support your expansion with this idea.

Once you have some ideas harvested from your Dream Time then you it’s time to pay attention to your energy alignment with each idea. Is this the right time for THIS idea.

THEN…decide which ones are your Big YES Passion Projects for this fall (which also means you have to say NO or NO NOT NOW to some ideas) and create your 90 Day Plan!

Client Love: Susan Convery, Fine Arts Teacher and Creative Adventurer

As a creative person I need a coach who understands the creative process. I looked high and low for someone who would support me with more than spreadsheets and accountability lists. Laura West is THE coach for creatives! She has a gift for building community among her clients, guiding them into their unique and beautiful leadership brilliance, and into creating a business that resonates with their own personal soul mission.

Laura is warm, funny, supportive, empathic and creative in her own right. She is constantly inventing new exercises for her clients to tap into their soul work, to recognize flow and friction and to connect with and support each other while sharing the journey.

Because of Laura’s support I was able to leave a job that didn’t fit anymore, to put my artistic passion projects into the world and to create a new business that feels easy and joyful. Laura has lead me to the conclusion that I am my business and my business is me. What I am creating is who I am. I hope you will allow Laura to work her joyful magic on your business too.
