No matter what I think about to write here, I end up whining about stuff anyway. That’s my M.O. it seems. Many times, I think about posting and realize all I have to offer you are things that annoy me, people who annoy me, and other dumb stuff. Probably nothing I haven’t been writing about for the last 13 years but I think I do it in a much less entertaining way these days.
Anyway, so here’s what’s new and exciting in my world!
1. I’m training to be a Certified Ambassador for Beth Grant’s program on Archetype Alignment. In a nutshell, the archetypes have to do with who you are naturally and whether you are using those strengths in your business. As an example, I’m what’s known as a “Conversational Truth Guide” – Truth Guides help you find your own way (vs. saying “my way is the RIGHT way”) and conversational as the persuasion power means that people are attracted to my voice and being in my energy. I had been using some of that in my business (podcasts and free calls once in a while) but I’m learning that it’s the way people trust me (vs. long sales pages or some other written process). And to add more of it in.
I’m launching a program setting up Masterminds with my clients and instead of a sales page, I’m just gonna get on the phone and talk. :) It’s what I do best, anyway, right? I wasn’t called “Motor Mouth” as a child for nothing!
Once I’m certified (July most likely) I’ll be able to use this process with my clients and I’m setting the mastermind groups up according to archetype because the marketing process is different for them all. Cool stuff! I wanted to do this program last year and it came right when Duty got laid off and our finances were tenuous. Now that my business is doing well consistently, I could jump in. Beth is super and helps you integrate all this into your business smoothly to create income from it. Whee! Also, Angella (my coach) asked me to co-teach this with her at her retreat in October (yey!!) so I’ll be doing that come fall.
2. I’ve been felled by a crap cold for a week now and just coming out of it so of course, Duty gets it. Men. Why do they act like it’s the end of the world when they’re sick? Except for one day where I cancelled what I had going on, I still did every single thing I normally do. Still worked with clients, still did my household chores. Men. Sheesh.
3. Kitty is acclimating pretty well here (or are we acclimating to him??). He’s a ball of energy and it’s fun to watch him and Brogan tussle because they do wear each other out. I worry a bit about how hard they play but tails are wagging (Brogan’s) and Kitty takes a pounding and keeps coming back, gnawing on Brogan’s leg with glee. They both stop when they’re done and don’t mess with each other for a while so that’s good.
That’s the haps here! What’s going on witchooooo?
