Thought of the day

Are you your own biggest obstacle?

If so, you don’t need time management, a better marketing plan, or a bigger audience.

You need to learn to unleash your CONFIDENCE and COURAGE before all the other stuff… because that’s what makes them work!

👩🏻‍🎨 Time management means figuring out precisely what will get you to your dream and ruthlessly cutting out the fluff. If you’re shaky, you’ll try to keep everything “just in case” so “something will work”, but more on your plate means you won’t do anything with excellence.

👩🏼‍🎨 Ace-ing your marketing means you’ll need the courage and confidence to take steps forward every day, even when those invites to your email list didn’t go over well, or not every post performed as well as you wanted it to, so you can get to the really good stuff.

👩🏾‍🎨 Getting a whole new audience is not a bad plan, but you already have some of the right people. If you are daring enough to reach out and build relationships with them, they’ll become the base of your superfans and help you grow.

My friend Jane told me, “I don’t know what works and what doesn’t. I doubt myself. I need time management and discipline, my marketing is so bad, and I don’t have the audience to be where I want to be.”
If I had started her on a rigid time/marketing plan and sent her on her way… guess what would’ve happened?

(Probably nothing good.)
We did a little planning, but the focus was on helping her figure out what she wanted, building up her confidence to get past her blockages and make things happen.

Her loosely-planned collection launch made her investment back before she finished working with me.

It was, dare I say… simple?

If this is bringing up all the feels for you, I want to invite you to join me in Anchored Artist.

If you haven’t heard yet, Anchored Artist is a group coaching program for artists who want to build real, genuine connections to sell art, conquer one thing at a time with clear objectives, and decide they are ready to bring their unique colors to an even bigger world.

October’s focus is Confidence and Courage and the last day to join is tomorrow. DM me to ask about the private bonus session if you join before October!
