Wildly Creative Opportunity [and Abundance] Is Knocking

Services for Real Estate Pros with Best Real Estate Writer, a Layton Media brand

After selling millions of words in real estate copy and content and scaling my content marketing business to $30K+ months without a team I hit a wall...

 

That's when opportunity came calling in the form of a 7-figure offer to come to be the Chief Content & Marketing Officers for a major international corporation.

 

On the morning I was going to sign the contract to start it hit me...

 

I was running away.

 

Running away from my business because I was burned out and that was on me!

 

I had become so depressed from the burnout I hated my business...hated my clients (not all of them)...hated my work...and most of all hated myself for all of that!

 

So rather than run away I decided to live by some sage advice I once heard "The light is in the wound." 

 

It has been a three year journey and I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that...

I see you building your dream business, Sister...
You've had the gorgeous gut feeling that NOW is the time to do something major...
You're all in... mind, heart, spirit.
You've probably peeped the branding of all your favorite coaches, solopreneurs & influencers...
Maybe even joined their Facebook groups or email lists to spy on their messaging & marketing too...
Curious how they connect to their audience so flawlessly...
You're getting in the vibe! But you've hit roadblocks...
 
1. You're beyond burned out between working in the business and on the business without wanting to do either and when you can bring yourself to show up you find yourself drowning in comparisonitis and frustrated because THIS is NOT where you saw yourself at this point in your business...
 
2. Everyone is out here sharing their super intimate shit in a way that is connecting heart, mind, body & soul with juicy 6-figure clients but sharing your story [much less telling stories to sell] is terrifying to you in this moment...even though you know there are amazing humans out there that could heal from your story! and here's a big one...
 
3. You haven't fully mastered your own unique and wildly creative message yet. Not in a way that feels 100% authentic, aligned, and actionable. So there you sit in the loneliness that is entrepreneurship blaming yourself, suffering from burnout, and finding yourself resenting the business that you once called "your BABY"!
 
How did you get here?!
 
Lucky for you I know all too well, Sister...
 
Growing up in the toxic & ultra-competitive environment of NY I was basically raised to be an entrepreneurial sharpshooter that couldn't possibly be enough, achieve enough, or do it fast enough...sound familiar?
 
...and don't get me started on the paralyzing perfectionism!
 
When I lost my hero, mentor & big sister Steph to suicide, it woke me up to my power & it set me on a journey of depression, love, healing & wins I never dreamed possible.
 
I brag It showed me that we must dig deep into the wounds to find the light in life & business.
 
I brag that "Doing the work" allowed me to heal and devote myself to behavioral and cognitive psychology research which I now leverage to help my students and clients escape their own burnout and get back in touch with their own inner bliss so that together we can all help one another grow, heal, and live with wild abundance and creativity in all that we do because listen...
 
Like every other solo biz, mine has gone through its twists, turns & pivots.
 
Knowing myself at a deep, powerful, spiritual level, and then creatively expressing that growth through my products, programs, and services is what growing a coaching business is all about!

 

Sound aligned, Sister?
