If you've found your way here, I imagine your wish list might include things like:
~attract more of the people you love to help (your 'ideal clients')
~earn an 'enough' sustainable living for you and your family
~practice marketing that feels honouring and gracious, and doesn't give you an allergic reaction
~make offers and sales with the ease and hospitality of inviting a new friend over for tea
~feel less stressed and tired, and receive genuine nourishment from your work
~replace confusion and overwhelm with the clarity of a plan and the resources to execute it
~fill the gaps in the skills you need to run a successful business (maybe you've wondered if you have what it takes)
~have a reliable guide and witness to help you along the way, because you're just plain lonely doing this alone
~introverts, empaths, and quiet good listeners who prioritize relationship innately have a lot of the qualities to run a successful business
~marketing can simply be a combo of listening + telling a story to some folks who've gathered 'round to hear
~you can earn a sustainable, 'enough' living AND be accessible to more people than you might think
~you get to create a business structure that suits your lifestyle, you are meant to enjoy this
~success is much more about your commitment to showing up every day consistently, with the right tools and systems, than it is about some sort of magic business fairy dust that only other people have
~your thoughtfully-made, fair trade business doesn't have to contribute to the inequalities and ickiness you see in our economic systems; it can actually be a beacon for the change you want to see in our world village
~your innate creativity, curiousity, and body wisdom are trustworthy guides
You don't have to be aggressive, sales-y, gimmicky, a social butterfly, or use language you wouldn't normally use. In fact, we wildly discourage all of that.
Nor do you have to suffer through 'not enough' time, energy, well-being or money, to do work that is meaningful.
If you're good at what you do and have been putting in the hours, but just don't seem to have enough people coming through the literal or online door, the odds are that it's not you: it's your business structure.
Your good work needs a supportive container in which to thrive. So if something is a little out of balance--your pricing is too much or too little, your services and packages feel too risky or inaccessible to people (or you don't have packages), you're attracting the wrong kind of clients, people really like you but aren't buying because they're confused about how you can actually help them--the business part will feel 'off,' even though you love your work.
You end up feeling undernourished. Your business isn't kind to you.
Our sweetly-supported, online courses help you build a resilient, sustainable container for your good work. Each course takes you through a series of practical, get-it-done exercises that tap your innate creativity. You work at your own pace, plus get help with your questions at our monthly Q&A Study Hall via Zoom.
