Yes, I am on vacation, but wanted to mention two things:
First, there are no Action Calls this week and next week. Because of my vacay and Labor Day. You may have already guessed this, or seen it on the calendar.
Second, you have been on my mind. Because as your coach, I want the best for you.
I want you to be, do, and have everything you dare wish for yourself. And more.
So the vision I hold for you, and what I want for you is...
Consistent, predictable revenue that makes you feel successful, secure, and comfortable.
The full expression of your gifts in service of your life's purpose, whatever that looks like.
The respect, recognition, and acknowledgment of the value you deliver. From your clients, colleagues, and community.
The joy and contentment of being exactly who and what you wish to be. Of spending your time doing exactly what you wish to do.
The pride of accomplishment and sense of significance that your contributions to the world earns.
The ability to leave a lasting legacy by selling your business to a worthy successor when you're ready to move on to new projects.
The realization and understanding that you already are enough, exactly as you are now. And that learning new skills, and building a profitable business allows you to be even more you. Because you bring your best to those who need it.
The confidence of knowing there is complete alignment between your actions and expectations. Between your head and your heart. Between your potential and your reality. Between your dreams and your destiny.
You're amazing! Thank you for allowing me to join you on your epic journey. 😍
Can't wait to talk about next steps and how we're going to make this happen when I get back from vacation. Because I have a plan for you. Which is no surprise, right? C'mon, you know me. What did you expect? 😉
To your prosperity & profitability,
Your Virtual Marketing Coach
One of the advantages of being in a community like ours is the access to other people. So when you want something, you can just ask, and the DIY delivers.
For example, several members asked for help building their social media presence. Of course, you know we have a ton of resources for that, such as video classes, notes, and so on. See our Marketing Classes for more: Marketing Classes
Did you know we have another even easier and more immediate resource? For the last month, I've been posting #FollowFriday messages in our Facebook group. We're working on one platform each week. It's the perfect opportunity for you to connect online with others in our community. And to ask them to connect with you.
Even if you have all the connections you'll ever need, our #FollowFriday series is a gentle reminder to act. To reach out and connect. To like or comment on posts. Because lurking (reading but not responding) is kind of pointless.
Take a look at our Facebook group today to drop your Twitter link in the comments. Let's see what happens!
To your prosperity & profitability,
Your Virtual Marketing Coach
