You have a deep longing to get your big ideas out into the world and are ready to do the work required to make it happen. But at the end of the day, even though you’ve taken care to follow everyone else’s advice and check off all the boxes (ooh, those pesky shoulds!), something’s not right.
Here’s what I know about you:
+ You have a huge vision for the work you want to be doing in this world.
+ You are already making magic happen and have the drive and ambition to take things to the next level. You and I are both aware of this.
+ You’re super smart and are frustrated that you aren’t in love with what you’ve been working so hard to make successful.
You’ve done your straight-A-student thing of having all the right answers and your proverbial report card is filled with the good grades you’re used to. Buuuuuut you still find yourself growing ever more disconnected and disenchanted with this dream of yours.
You’re craving more.
And you’re right.
You deserve more than living the just fine version of your life. You deserve to thrive. And this shift starts with you. Your intuition. Your voice. Your creative genius. The rest of the stuff is just logistics.
I’ve taught hundreds of creative women how to take bold, inspired action on their creative dreams and know that these are the three main things holding you back from embracing your vision and making real growth happen:
You aren’t giving yourself the time and space required for the clarity and conviction to move things forward.
Your ideas don’t look like anyone else’s, so you don’t think they’re going to lead to success.
You’re operating from a place of frenzy trying to keep all those looks-good-on-paper balls in the air.
You’re tired hearing how great things seem from the outside and are too worn out to consider what’s next.
(But you know that something is simmering. You know you’re ready to find out what it is. And you also know that there’s so much more you want to say than you’re saying. )
It is possible to create work that is both deeply resonant to you and your favorite customers.
It is possible to embrace your deep truths and use those as the foundation of your creative endeavors.
And it is possible to build success for yourself in a way that is both fun and effective.
Creative success lies at the intersection of inspired ideas and bold action. You crave a depth to your work. A fortitude of impact. And an ease with which you get your message out to the world.
When you raise your hand and say yes to your most inspired, authentic ideas, you are more successful in your creative endeavors, more connected to your work, and more empowered to keep making those bold moves that are going to move you and your vision forward.
And when you have a community of like-minded peeps doing their biggest work alongside you, everyone is unstoppable.
Welcome to the Raise Your Hand Say Yes Inner Circle, a year-long experience designed to help you tap into your spiritual center, define success on your own terms, and get the ongoing support you need to take these bold, inspired dreams of yours to the next level.
This isn’t just another e-course. Or coaching program. Or inspiration you can hoard for when you’re ready one day. (Seriously. Resource hoarders need not apply.)
This is ongoing counsel so that you can get specific advice about your specific issue and then move on.
It’s education around what it takes to create success on your own terms. And a behind-the-scenes look at the business of someone who’s on that path. (That’s me!)
It’s a study of how to integrate spiritual truths into your creative and business practices.
And it’s a community of other women who want to make a change in this world who will be right there with you.
Education. Support. Community. With just the right amount of bad-cop kicks-in-the-pants.
Hi, Sweets. Meet your new favorite thing on the internet.
+ a monthly video lesson where I’ll teach you how to combine strategy and spirit. These lessons will be based on honoring your creative voice, defining your own vision of success, and learning how to marry your most inspired ideas with the bold action required to move them forward in the world.
You’ll also get the inside scoop behind the scenes of my business, access to my favorite resources and tools, and updates on my #spiritualmba project.
These aren’t your average grow-your-biz videos. They’ll be as fun as they are thought-provoking. Trust me, I’m a hoot!
+ a monthly Q&A call where you can ask me anything about strategy, mindset, tools, and resources. We might talk newsletter strategy, if it’s okay for you to quit twitter (YES!), and how to shift perspectives and deepen your faith all on one call.
It’s like a super useful version of a Reddit AMA. You get your q’s answered. I get to lavish you with all my love. You win. I win. Everybody wins.
You also get to hear what everyone else needs help with. Which means some extra resources pluuuuuus (even better!) knowing you aren’t alone. With the right support, you’re going to be fucking fierce.
+ a monthly Courage Challenge where we all commit to making a big thing that will move our vision forward but that scares the pants of us. From that email you’ve been putting off to your big ask, it’s time to move on the real work that’s going to get you from Point A to Point Amazing.
No more thinking about what you need to do. These challenges will root you in taking action with the accountability to make sure you follow through.
Oh, and just in case you think it can’t be done, you’ll get to witness me following through on the challenge in real time. On video. Freakouts and all. Together, we’ll step into the leadership roles we’re being called to realize for ourselves.
+ a private Facebook community where you get to connect with your new biz besties, seek feedback on your BBI’s (Big Burning Ideas!), and get ongoing support as you rise up to the next level of your creative work.
I KNOW that the last thing anyone needs is another Facebook group. But this one will have structure, follow strict community guidelines, and will be your new source for connection with the peeps who can get you moving towards your true vision.
My RYHSY peeps are the best and this crew will be the best of the best (srsly.). Get ready to fall in love.
+ A welcome kit in the mail (yeeeees prezzies!) that establishes you as an Official Hand Raiser and Yes Sayer. Welcome to the club, Love. It’s the best in here.
+ Exclusive access to invest in additional members-only coaching where you can get additional support and deep dives into the help you need to move forward. (Otherwise, my calendar is on lockdown.).
+ 20% off upcoming offers (including BrandCrush!).
By getting in now, you’ll also be a member of the Founders Crew and will get the exclusive deets and first dibs on what’s coming next for me and my own bold, inspired biz. Cuz this is just the beginning.
Pricing: $897 (2 months free!) or $89/month
There are 100 spots available (with 12 remaining yo! Get on it!).
Applications are open through Sunday, September 17 and acceptance letters will be sent via email on Monday, September 18.
We start October 1.
You ready to go?
The grit that’s gotten you to where you are now is what is also going to propel your work to the next level – where you wake up in the morning excited to dive in, where you give your ideas the time they need to simmer, and where you have faith in your big crazy ideas. The ones that keep you awake at night. The ones that don’t make any sense (yet), and the ones you know are ready to exist in this world.
We are the next generation of creative leaders. We are the voices that are missing in this world. And together, we’ll start making ourselves heard.
This program is unlike any other, offering a mix of teaching, support, and empowerment to help get those big ideas of yours – YOU KNOW THE ONES – out of your head and into the world.
You’ve already created something amazing. Think about what’s possible when you dive deep for yourself and when you embrace the idea that finding your way to creative success can be so much easier than you realize.
(The answer isn’t that you should be working harder. Promise.).
If you’re feeling a hearty, resounding yes to be part of something bigger, to find your peeps, and to dive deep into your own next steps, I’ve got you covered.
(If you’re hoping to avoid facing your self-defeating tendencies, need an always-available shoulder to cry on, or are looking for someone else to solve all your problems, this ain’t for you. Likewise, if you are stuck and overwhelmed by the I don’t know’s that come along with your creative urges and are feeling paralyzed by knowing where to go next, this program won’t be able to help you.)
I will be screening applicants to make sure that everyone who signs on for this experience is ready to do the work required to raise their hands and say yes to that big work. There’s no application to apply, and you might learn a thing or two by going through the process.
To be clear, this is not a program solely focused on business growth or marketing strategies. It’s not a one-size-fits-all, fill-in-the-blanks program either. It is a different kind of experience designed to help you make significant shifts in how you’re showing up to your creative work in this world. (Hint: if you’re feeling all the butterflies right now, that’s the sign that you should apply!)
What you’ll walk away with:
Clarity about what you want to create in this world, and the chutzpah to make it real.
Alignment of the action you’re taking with the inspired creativity that is innately a part of you.
Feeling calm. Peaceful. Delighted. Energized.
Amazed at everything you’re able to do, and how it feels surprisingly easy.
This is the part where you expect me to tell you that I know your 6-figure business is only a few weeks away. (I don’t know that.) Or where I’m supposed to tell you that I have all the secrets you need to get as many Instagram followers as The Rock. (Sorry. Probably not going to happen.) Or that you’re doing it wrong when it comes to marketing. (What if there isn’t a right or wrong answer when it comes to your business?)
Here’s what I will tell you:
+ There is no one-size-fits-all formula to success. I can (and will!) share what’s worked for me and the best practices you can consider, but at the end of the day, it’s up to you to forge your own path and go your own way.
+ You already have the answers you need. But they’re hidden behind the noise of things you should be doing and the desire to keep up with the Jones’s and the hope that you can figure things out without making too many ripples.
+ Ripples need to be made. You need to make them. You know it. I know it. And I will help you get out of your own way to get your big ideas out into the world.
I’ve spent over 3 years interviewing successful creative entrepreneurs for Raise Your Hand Say Yes and have discovered the unique properties that they have in common. In addition, I’ve been coaching creative women for 6 years to help them take their businesses and lives to the next level. Not only do I have the professional experience to back up this offer, I’ve been living it for 37 years.
I’ve always known I have more to say. I’ve always felt I was meant to make a true difference in this world. And I’ve always wanted to be successful at doing it. And I’ve tried doing it so many ways. Most of them haven’t worked. What has? Coming back to myself, my intuition, my spiritual center. It’s worked over and over and over again.
(And here’s the rest of what I know: you can meditate until your butt goes numb, but if you aren’t also taking action on the things you want, you aren’t going to get very far. THIS is what I’m after with this program – teaching you how to tap into your truth and then go make a new brand of magic happen for your life. Yes? YES.)
Oh, and bonus. I have a background in Psychology which means that I have a unique understanding of how the brain works and what’s required to make change in your life. I’ve done the work of building my business from the ground up and know what’s possible. Also, self-taught is the new black. You don’t need an MBA or Art School, Sweets. Promise.
Also, I am you. In addition to my legit factor, my own creative work shifted after I had my twin daughters in 2014. I started taking bolder risks, prioritizing the things I really wanted, and going all in on creating my own vision of success. And it all worked – to an extent.
From the outside, everything looked amazing. I was making the money and getting the recognition that I desired. But I was tired, lonely, and unfulfilled.
And while I experienced moments of flow when I’d lose myself in a coaching call or writing project, I mostly felt like I spent my time responding to things, powering through, and forcing creativity because I just have to get the work done.
And when people would say, “How’s business? It looks like you’ve been killin’ it,” I’d respond by telling them how tired I was.And one day, I realized that things had to change or else I’d run this business (and myself!) into the ground.
I decided there had to be a better way, and I started to open myself up to letting my intuition be my business driver. I sought flow. I got quiet. I started making changes to how I showed up every day to my work. (These involved: more writing, more meditation, and more tacos. Srsly. I can teach you my ways!)
Now, everything has changed for me: I wake up excited to start my work day. I am energized by the work I do and the people I do it with. I feel more connected than ever and I still have energy left over to cook dinner for my family.
On paper, things look nearly identical. But I feel like a brand-new woman. And my work is better than ever.
And I’m ready to pass all of this learning to you. I’m ready to create my own RYHSY Army.
It’s time to step into the shift. Into the truth of the business you want for yourself. Into the new way of being a lightworker.
This is your invitation into a new way of doing business as a creative entrepreneur.
With spirit and strategy being viewed as equals.
One where we take bold, inspired action. But one where we also balance that boldness with quiet and flow. Where we honor our selves and our spirits above our to-do lists. And where we raise our collective voices for the changes we want to make in this world.
A way of doing business where we build success for ourselves on our own terms. In our own way. In accordance with our own values.
Where we say our truths. Out loud. Even when it’s inconvenience.
Where we stand for what we believe in.
Where we lead by example to create a new generation of women who are willing to go all in for what they believe in.
(Erin, a note: this section still feels really biz coach-y, so my instinct is to cut it and use it in a sales email to say “what the RYHSY philosophy can do for your biz” UNLESS you insist on keeping it!)
+ You revolutionize the way you approach your creative work, moving beyond what everyone has taught you about growth to go deeper into what you intrinsically know to be true about the world – and let said truths become the foundation of everything you do. In a way that let’s you talk about the things that light you up – and resonate with the people who need your work the most!
+ You shift your focus to what’s actually important instead of dicking around online trying to learn the latest tricks about instagram ads, leveraging popups, and tricking people into receiving your emails. Instead, your marketing efforts are grounded in you talking authentically about your work as a way to invite other people to change their lives.
+ You start creating from a place of flow. Your creative work speaks to something deeper. And even if you continue on in your day job, you’re doing other work that lights you up and keeps you connected to your greater purpose.
