“But what if they think I’m a slimy, salesy, internet marketer?” – These were the words I blurted out to Hobie the night before I sold my $5,000 2-Day course completion live workshop from stage at my event a few weekends back. – He looked at me, cocked his head a bit and said, “Do YOU think you are a slimy, salesy internet marketer?” – In that moment I knew I was stalling, worrying about and being fearful of going BIG. Of promoting something so special and personal that it took me waaaay outside of my comfort zone. ? But here’s why I did it. . . – I believed in the workshop wholeheartedly. I knew it would change businesses and lives. ? I knew I could help 100 people finish their course by December 31, 2018, and finally start making consistent revenue. And now, just a week after making the offer, with only 5 spots left, that belief is soon to become a reality. – Just the week before, my friend Colin Boyd shared with me this priceless reminder: “Revenue comes from the repetition of selling, not from time spent in creation mode.” ?? So true, yet so tough to embrace. Most of us, including me, feel cozy and safe in “creation mode.” It’s my sweet spot. ? However, if I don’t promote, launch, and sell regularly, my business will not thrive. It won’t scale. It won’t touch people’s lives as I’ve intended it to do. (Hint: Same for your business as well.) – I want to always be the kind of girl who walks the talk. Does what she teaches. Doesn’t just preach, but also takes her own advice. If I encourage you to promote and sell more, I too need to show up. ????? That’s why I found the courage to sell a live workshop from stage that I knew would change lives. ?? I believed in what I was selling and that’s what mattered more than the fear of what others might think. – So here’s my question for you: Are you walking YOUR talk? Are you preaching AND doing? If not, there’s no better time than now to make the shift. ?

We all tell ourselves stories about work, and these stories shape the way we think, lead, and make decisions. For instance, if the story that runs through your head all day is “Everything’s a battle in this office,” you’re more likely to expect hostility and confrontation. Negative stories like this one generally don’t help you, so consider shifting to a new narrative. Start by identifying a challenge you’re facing, and then ask: “What is the basic story I’m telling myself about this?” Consider how the story is affecting you and your team. Is it constraining or liberating? If it’s constraining, think about what you’d like to change. What reimagined (and true) version of the story would be more useful for pursuing your goals or doing things differently? Rewriting a story is often a matter of choosing to see a situation from a different, more-positive or proactive, angle. Adapted from “To Make a Change at Work, Tell Yourself a Different Story,” by Monique Valcour and John McNulty

“I want to pull heart strings and connect, and get messy and raw and real,” says The Pigeon Letters founder and artist, Peggy Dean. The Pigeon Letters is a creative educational platform that gives people a place to feel inspired and motivated, and show that vulnerability mixed with creativity is a super power in everyone. What advice would Peggy give other companies on Instagram? “Authenticity will take you the distance.” She adds, “People want to know what makes a company unique. Buying into a company’s values, seeing behind-the-scenes provides a level of quality that a simple website description just doesn’t do.” ? by @laurynkayphotography @thepigeonletters #IGBusinessSpotlight #artivist #?

You don’t need to be just like everyone else. You don’t have to keep up, fit in, and follow the pack. ????????? You can take a road less traveled and embrace what makes you different. You can come as you are and find a community that empowers you. ????????? And here is the amazing part ?? just by being yourself and telling your story you will make it easier for others to do the same. Your words have influence. Your actions have power. ????????? Your vulnerability could be the catalyst that changes someone else’s life. ????????? The minute that you decide to break away from being like everyone else and allowing your true personality, identity, and heart to shine through—that’s the moment everything changes. #communityovercompetition ?????????
