‘I don’t know how to sell myself’

A week or so back I announced an offer for members of the Animas community to support them in creating a professional brand and/or website.

Since then, I’ve been speaking with people to understand the challenges they face when looking to create their coaching brand and/or a website. ’I don’t know how to sell myself’ was just one of the responses I heard, repeatedly.

Some others were:

‘I don’t know my niche.’
‘I’m not ready to build a website yet.’

It became obvious that there was more to this than ‘creating a brand’ or ‘building a website.’

Its pretty clear that this was primarily about finding your voice, and what you have to offer as a coach. This is an important conversation to have - perhaps even before you know the answers to any of these questions, or feel ‘ready’ to do anything about your brand, website etc. It has also helped to clarify what I have to offer.

I’m here to help you identify and develop your story, and build a brand, around ‘you.’

A brand that gives you confidence to present yourself as a coach – one which will connect you with people you’d like to work with, and who would like to work with you.

Simple really, isn’t it?

Well yes - but this is not so easy to do.

Which is why you might want to work with me.

I am well versed in the world of branding, design and website creation. And, as an Animas accredited coach, I can speak in simple (pure) language; help to capture your voice; connect you with your audience; and support you in gaining confidence and assurance to present yourself to the world. In essence, I'm offering my services as your personal Branding Coach.

I have put together two packages designed to support you in this process:

‘Brand Story’ package
At the end of this process, you will have a clear ‘brand story’ that will give you the confidence to speak about yourself as a coach and what you offer to your clients, and help establish your coaching business.

Brand/Website package
Building on the brand story process, I will help you navigate the process of creating your website. Not just any website, but a clear, professional launchpad for you and your business, built on the Squarespace platform.



Are you interested in a FREE Brand Evaluation call?

I have space for 10 FREE Brand Evaluation calls during December.
Please click the link below to set up a time:

I look forward to hearing from you!



Pass it on!

You may not be in need of my support. But If you know any Animas coaches/trainees that do, please pass this on. If the person you recommend signs up to work with me, I’ll send you a Christmas gift : )

The Witches Olympics

It's 'inking time' for 'The Witches Olympics;' a delightful tale conceived by Sam Vinson, and performed as a children's play at Glastonbury, now set for completion as an illustrated Children's Book. Shown here are pen and ink sketches from one spread which introduce Gingella Gallis, the object of ridicule of the other witches in the competition.

MACD workshop

Last week I (together with Hilary Chittenden) supported Fred Deakin @freddeakin on a full day workshop at Central Saint Martins, for MA students approaching their final year project. The workshop was designed to inspire and encourage students to further define and refine their MA project, http://aussiesonlinecasino.com/ and incorporated practical tips, tools and reference points. Fred did a great job, and it was a welcome engagement for me with design teaching and mentoring.  I was struck by the unmistakeable drive the students had to use their design skills and knowledge to broach important issues, and to "make a difference."

Jimothy goes Royal

Here's a bit of a magical PR story. A while back, Yvonne Milroy the author of our co-produced Children's Book Jimothy, received a letter in the post intended for Charles and Camilla. Bizarrely, Yvonne's Hamilton postcode was identical to C&C's UK one - hence the slight misdirection. Seizing on the opportunity, Yvonne bundled up the unopened letter with a copy of Jimothy, and an accompanying letter offering the book as a gift, possibly to be read to Will and Kate's new arrival, when he/she comes. And just yesterday, here's what Yvonne received in the post: An acknowledgment letter from Camilla, with confirmation that Jimothy is quite likely to be included on the granchildren's reading list.

Being in Business

I'm back at my desk, fresh from an enlightening weekend workshop at the Concord Institute facilitated by David Norris under the title 'Being in Business.' This was an exploration of who I am 'Being' in Business, uncovering the underlying drivers and motivations which shape our experience of being in business. The workshop incorporated a set of tools and processes including interactive dialogue, core process work and social dreaming, all designed to generate a space of connection within which we could explore the following intention:

'to transform your experience of work from being based on strength of will to being based on energetic resonance so that rather than pursuing a future, you're able to let one find you.'

In the process, I discovered the business I am in, or the Being I am in business, is occupied not so much with design consultancy or artwork, but rather 'approval-seeking.' Through a difficult-to-describe yet artfully navigated process, David led us through our individual and collective experiences of Being at work, and ultimately moved towards identifying (beyond our fears, anxieties, fantasies and limitations) the fundamental promise that we are, in the world.

In this context, the work we do is simply a channel for 'who we are,' and an expression of that promise. What emerged for me, and the promise that I am, is to 'share joy and wonder with others.' This makes a lot of sense to me, and certainly touches my heart. It is the thread that runs through all the work I do as a designer, artist, vision navigator and wholefood cook and teacher. Suddenly the frequent dilemma of what I should be focussing on disappears, and I am simply encouraged to connect with this promise, and acknowledge all of my work as an expression of this.

I began work on this many moons ago, creating visuals of Australia casino the characters which include the narrator "Mackintosh Mackintosh" and an assortment of Witches hailing from around the globe. Now is the time to bring it to completion!
