Creative Marketing Inspiration

by Laura West

Chik-fil-a, an Atlanta based favorite, has launched a new initiative this holiday centered around time. Giving the gift of time. Spending time together. They created a cute animated movie about it. They have opened a Time Shop in NYC. Both in the shop and online you can get hand calligraphied cards to send to love ones to request Play Time, Giving Time… suggestions for making cinnamon rolls together and warm cuddly experiences. The cards are free and include postage. (There’s not even anything for sale in the NYC shop – no chicken sandwiches or anything.)

I wanted to share this with you for inspiration and ideas. Of course, they have a big giant ad budget to create this, but what would be your message? A powerful and yet simple message that you could share with your community?

For a year (back a couple of years ago) I created handpainted cards with simple inspiring messages and left then around town. In my doctor’s office waiting room, bathroom mirrors in restaurants, bulletin boards in grocery stores and as part of my tip after paying a bill. I know I changed some people’s days. I inspired new thoughts. I gave them a burst of confidence or optimism.

Maybe I wasn’t impacting millions of lives like Chik-fil-a… but who knows whose life I changed, because I shared my passionate message and took a risk? Maybe that person went home and talked to their kid differently, maybe they spoke to themselves more compassionately, maybe they passed their good vibes forward to a co-worker.

What’s your passionate message? Any ideas or inspiration about how to share it?

A Morning Offering…

A bit of inspiration for today…

Morning Offering

What is your Business Dream?

Are you ready to start making this dream a reality? I know the marketing can often seem overwhelming but there really is an easier way when you align with your deep joy, you’ll become magnetic and opportunities will come to you!

Let’s talk about what’s possible for you when we work together… here’s a link to my calendar to sign up for a free consultation.

This is not a big pushy sales call – it’s truly an exploration of where you are and what you want to create with your business and how I can help you get there faster, easier… and hopefully with a lot more joy and grace!

An Invitation to My Next Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea

by Laura West

Power Pose - SpontaneousWelcome to April! Can you believe we are well into the 2nd quarter of 2019! I’m always amazed at how fast it flies by!

Every year we make plans in our businesses and lives for what we are ready for. What we are inviting in.

Are you ready to invite in an expansion in your business, to allow in more JoyFlow with your expertise, your impact and your abundance?

If so, I’m inviting you into being in the sacred alchemy of your business and life. Starting with what might seem like taking ordinary passions, ideas and expertise and experiencing how you can turn them into extraordinary.

Some say it’s not magic. Just work hard, stay focused and do the right things. Right?

I say… Yes, and…

There is so much of our success that lives beyond the actionable to-do’s. They are important and yet there is so much more.

Being willing to go into the deep, rich soil of our raw materials of our beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, and energy is what gets us out of feeling overwhelmed and stuck and afraid of the bigger purpose we really want to step into.

Being willing to meet the greater world with fierce love, passion and oodles of creativity, is what will have you be able to surf the waves of your life and business to handle the challenges and great opportunities that are coming your way.

This is what we will be immersing in during my next Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea.

If you haven’t experienced my work (or if you have, then you know), it’s full of beautiful polarity. Embracing the whole… The deep fearless work to shift beliefs and stories and the fun, playful approach to creating what’s next.

This is what you will experience at the retreat.

If you are curious, I invite you to take a look at the information page and set up a call with me to talk about the possibility of coming to the retreat.

I’ve led dozens of retreats over the years. And they all have a magic quality to them. You’ll experience: Amazing relationships with spiritual, creative women business owners. Nourishing environment. Creative, easy art. Deep intimate connections. Intuitive and wise coaching. Rich resources. And that what’s next clarity. Oh, and a creative plan for your What’s Next!

I choose to trust in the magic. How about you?

If you’d like to talk further, just email me and we’ll set up a time to talk.

You’ll want to do it this week as there are special bonuses (you get my Joyful Business Studio membership from now until the retreat for free! $679 value!) and special savings and payment plans.

This is a small, intimate experience and a few spots are already reserved. So, don’t wait!

I look forward to talking with you soon.
