{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.

{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…

{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!
