    #019 two tips to create your marketing strategy to get more clients

    There was a time I hated Instagram. And I got slight anxiety when I had to open an Instagram app or Facebook or I got the notification that someone tagged me somewhere. And that isn't that long ago. It's around three years ago that this happened where I was overly focused on the numbers and my strategy and doing the right thing. I lost track of what marketing really meant to me, and what it really actually just is. So in today's episode, we are going to dive deeper into the top tips to create your marketing strategy to get more clients. 


    In this episode: 
    (2:32) If your strategy is holding you back from actually doing things, it is not the right fit... 
    (3:15) Yes, you need a strategy and guidance on how online marketing works...
    (4:52) Where should you start?
    (5:13) The 1st thing I want you to do...
    (7:12) And then, tip #2...
    (8:49) Who can best captivate your essence?...
    (11:05) Get the basics, experiment, fail and try again. Have fun with it…
    (12:21) Putting the right puzzle pieces together...

    #018 Figuring things out yourself AND making an impact

    #018 Figuring things out yourself AND making an impact

    Can you have a massive impact when you're still figuring things out yourself? I have recorded this podcast episode because this topic has come up in three coaching sessions this week alone, and that is the fact that people feel the need to have everything figured out themselves before they can have an impact and help others. 
    If you need a permission slip to figuring things out AND make an impact listen to this episode. 


    In this episode: 
    (1.59) the highlights we only see from others and the impact on us
    (3.52) personal experience of figuring things out in my kitchen
    (6.18) am I good enough? When doubt kicks in
    (7.37) what is success really?
    (8.54) hitting pause for a second and slowing down
    (10:10) the deciding factor why people work with you
    (14:15) remind yourself of the current moment


    Repeat after me: “I can have massive impact while figuring things out.” 
    You can create a worthwhile business while enjoying the moment.

    Episode Snippets

    “You have all the answers inside of you”
    “I was me, then the world conditioned me to who they thought I should be and I feel like now after 30 years I’ve come back to myself.”
    “The process of unlearning rather than becoming”
    “My mind is an assistant to my body”
    “The myth of hustling: we invented machines to help with our workload but what ended up happening is that we are mimicking the machines. Trying to keep up with them. We have completely forgotten why we invented them in the first place. What happened is that now we have an incredibly inefficient system. Example: it takes 3 liters of water to create 1 liter of bottled water”. 
    “Human Design removes to need to fix each other.” “Just have to live in your design and there is balance in the ecosystem.”
    “We are all encoded with an inner sense of right timing”
    “We don’t need a blueprint, we don’t need a strategy, we don’t need to take a 1000 courses - we just know in ourselves what is right for us in any given moment.”
