Online marketing with creativity + integrity in the age of the "boss babe" sleaze-o-rama.

Over the last 2 years, I have been working hard on re-thinking my work and creating a whole new framework for how I help creative people make their dreams real. 

This kind of re-imagining takes a LOT of energy. So, for the last 2 years, I have had to pull back on other parts of my business. Most notably: marketing.

Whatever your dream is, there are some parts of it that you LOVE to work on and some parts that you don't love. And, whatever your dream is, your dream NEEDS YOU to...

So how DO I want to show up?

So my post about not knowing how to show up lately really struck a chord! I got a lot of feedback and it was pretty much split 50/50 between people saying that leaving Facebook is the best thing that's ever happened to them and people saying that if I leave they will really miss me and not to discount the value of showing up with your light! I spent a lot of time thinking about how I DO want to show up and I wrote a long blog post which I just deleted because it just circles around and...

If you have a creative business you want to meet my friend Libby.

Before we begin: this is a post all about a wonderful woman who helped me with some business stuff.  Libby's not paying me to do this or anything, I DO NOT do sponsored blog posts on the Creative Dream Incubator, I'm just so grateful and excited about what Libby has done for me and I know a lot of my readers would want to know about her so I want to share the love. After 7 years of doing the Creative Dream Incubator as my full-time job, I took a step back starting last fall, looked at...

Am I ready for this?

am i ready for this? Last night as I was going to sleep I was feeling a lot of self-doubt. I knew today was the day I was going to hit publish on all of the changes I'd been working on on my website. Which is not about the new website, it's about creating the container for the work I want to do next. And it brought up a lot of doubt around "who do you think you are?" This new website features ME a lot more. And there are a LOT more photos of ME coming. And I am more clear about claiming my gifts and not wavering...

I Am Juggling More Things Than I Can Carry

Juggling more things than I can carry I just got it - this is why we "juggle" stuff!! Because we couldn't possibly hold it all. So I just had a really beautiful and relaxing vacation. And then I was sick in bed for 6 days. And now here I am... behind on all of my projects. Oh, while I was on vacation I was offered a really great opportunity which I did say yes to, so that added a new project to the pile of things I can't hold.

This is part of building something. Sometimes it's overwhelming.

Sometimes there is an exhausting...

Everything went wrong for me this week, how about you?

It's 4:07 on Friday afternoon. I am rarely at my computer at 4:07 on a Friday afternoon, usually by this time I've given everything I've got and I am in recovery mode for the weekend. But this week was different from most weeks. This week was absolute shit. I mean that's what I was thinking for most of this week because nothing went the way I wanted it to go. I had all these fires springing up that needed me to put them out, and I could never find time to work on what I wanted to work on. I...

I messed up.

 

This summer, I launched my new free e-Course Dream Lab: Explore The Miracle Of Your Dream. Dream Lab is a place to learn and experiment with a daily practice for growing your dream from the inside out. This is tricky work, so I want to offer a lot of support for doing it - including a private classroom because I want you to be able to share your stories and ask your questions. Because I want to keep things as simple and streamlined in my business as possible, I put the Dream Lab inside...

More thoughts on the sleaze of online business colliding with the good people of the creative/self-help/life-coaching world

FYII woke up early and wrote this post - I am still not feeling any "steam" for the daily journaling videos but Iwill post about that when I know more about what I am going to do next with that. I still want to do journaling videos, just probably not every day.

More thoughts on the sleaze of online business colliding with the good people of the creative/self-help/life-coaching world

I've been getting a lot of feedback about my blog post about feeling conflictedabout the creative/life coaching industry.

I think there is a lot more to be said.

I mean I am relieved for all the people who wrote to me to say "Oh no the...

I feel so conflicted right now.

 

The Creative Dream Incubator has been my full time job for 6.5 years. It's been my biggest dream for over 20 years.

It means a lot to me, I have worked hard to be where I am because I believe in what I'm doing.

I believe in our ability to transform the world through the transformation of consciousness, and that this happens one person at a time.

And that we - those of us who are ready and willing to do this work - are a growing minority.

I'm looking at the long game.

Six and a half years...

The Mastermind Groups Did Not Work The Way I'd hoped. Have you ever had that happen?

masterrrrecap

In June/July I ran my first mastermind groups in the Creative Dream Circle.

I have run many small coaching groups, I have been a part of many mastermind groups - none of this is new to me. I used everything I know to carefully set the groups for success.

But even so - it didn't go as I had hoped.

The main that that went differently than plannedis that a lot of people who signed up did not participate.

Now - everyone I heard from who did not participatehad a totally valid reason for not...
