Creating A Visionary Business

Welcome to the new face of Visionary Mom!

I have been working for MONTHS to create this new space. And here’s why….

This past year, I’ve been working with clients alot to help them find their vision and purpose in the world and then advising them on how to turn that into a Visionary Business that inspires them. I’ve done business start up coaching, pow-wow calls to find that one big, awesome idea and have dove into the world of officially doing website design.

Over and over I kept hearing myself say these words (or some version of them):

Be who YOU are, don’t be like other people, have your vibe be all over everything that you do. Marketing is way more easy if you are just being yourself, then you can speak from the heart and share your vision from an authentic place…

And what kept being there in my own face, wanting to be confronted, was how much I was not in love with Visionary Mom anymore. I was feeling burnt out, uninspired and was contemplating throwing in the towel.

It’s probably not a big huge surprise to hear that if you have been following along for any length of time. I just have not been around much, I get to things when I can, and my creativity has been weak.

If I were to tell the truth, I’ve been sad.  And work has been hard.  It’s difficult to coach people to love their lives when I’m not loving mine.

And then I started a brand new program about six months ago: The Visionary Mom Business Start Up. There is this cool thing that happens when I’m teaching a course – *I* am in it just as much as the participants are. So, over the past 6 months, I have done all the steps that the team was doing.

And the biggest shift for me was when I reworked my VISION for my business and I got really, super duper clear about WHO I AM in this business and what I want to gift to the world.  I started to come alive again and wanted to recreate my business so that is 100% reflected who I am and what I stand for.

And my old website was just not cutting it! You see, I am bold and energetic and loud and wildly passionate.  The old site was BORING, safe, and quiet.  I think I was trying to convey a “professional” vibe so people would take me seriously.

Which is super crazy and against everything I tell my clients.  Trying to be something you are not is a slow, sad death to your own passions, creativity and JOY!

Don’t get me wrong.  I know that I have to be professional as a business owner, but *I* get to define what that is.  For me, it’s about taking care of my people, making sure that they are truly shining in their lives.  And to do that, I have a tendency to be loud and bold and I will likely swear along the way.  The constrained, polished professional is so not me.  I am messy and raw and that’s what makes me effective!

So I knew I had to redo everything. My offerings, the colors, the vibe and my MESSAGE, which is this:

YOU can create a business and life that you really, truly love.

Now, that may be a simple statement, I know. But what is not simple is my deep, passionate commitment to make sure that you get it and that you live it.

And I’m not messing around about this. Settling for a safe, comfortable life is just not allowed in these parts.

If you want to create a life that inspires the shit out of you, then I’m your gal!! :)


This whole process has given me the chance to find myself again.. my voice, my love for people and the fun and joy I have making a difference. Seeing women come alive, fueled by big dreams and taking courageous action, it makes me so fucking giddy.

I wanted my website to reflect that: the FUN, the BOLDNESS, the WILD, the FREEDOM, the KOOKY.. the excitement that happens when we go for it!! I feel like this space is now ME. It communicates the energy I have and the silliness.  And I hope it conveys my love for what I do, which I have found again.

So please, take a look around and let me know what you think. Share your dreams and your passions with me. Hopefully we can work together in big and small ways to make life here on earth a more fun and exciting place to be.

Much, much love,

I know that many of you dream about running your own business.

You may already have a business that you love, but you want to take it to new places.   Or you have an exciting business idea that you haven’t started yet.  Or you think it would be really awesome to make money doing something that you truly love, you just aren’t quite what you want to do.

So, let’s talk business for a minute…

And, to be clear, I’m in no way interested in just any old business.    The only thing I’m willing to discuss is how I can help you create and succeed with a VISIONARY business.

A business that inspires you and fills you up.  That challenges you and excites you and gives you insane levels of joy and satisfaction.

Also, a business that matters, that makes a difference, that helps people in some way.  Whether that business help comes in the form of guiding people to a healthier life or simply gives them a much needed does of beauty.

I truly believe that every single one of us has something magnificent to offer the world. 

Every single one of us has something to share.

You really can create an awesomely successful business doing exactly what you love!

And, if you already have a business, you can bring it more in alignment with your big dreams.  You can transform your business into the vehicle that brings you every single thing that you wish for in life.

Here’s my definition of a Visionary Business:

A business that makes an impact, is inspiring and benefits everyone who comes in contact with it:  the business owner, her family, those wonderful clients/customers, and all the other lucky people that interact with the business in some way.

So..   Do you have a business that wants to be visionary?  Do you have an idea for something new, that inspires you?  Do you dream about running your own something, but not quite sure what you want to do?

Would you like to dive into this further, creating your own visionary business that supports you and your family, that fuels your creativity and ignites your passion?  Do you feel like its time to breath some new life into your current business?

Do you dream about working for yourself?

I’m not going to lie, it’s not always easy.   It does take hard work and commitment and pushing through the fear and the doubt.  And, there can be alot of fear and doubt!

But, there is something so juicy and yummy about being your own boss.

Here are my favorite reasons why it’s so worth taking the plunge….

 

1.   I get to be home with my kids when they’re home. I am right here – listening to them play, learn and grow.  I get to be part of it.  Yes, they can interrupt and sometimes I don’t get all the stuff done that I want to, but the tradeoff for that is we get to be together, which is really important to me.

2.  I can work when I want to work. Sometimes I get up early and get rockin’ ~ sometimes I stay up late and work under the light of the moon.  That kind of flexibility makes doing things (like taking art classes at my community college) workable.

3.  I get to work on what inspires me! I am someone that doesn’t like to spend my time doing junk that doesn’t matter.   Because I work for myself, I get to pick what projects I work on and what type of work I want to do.  If something has lost it’s spark, I’m not stuck with it.   I’m constantly exploring new ideas, and what’s even better, I get to execute and make those ideas happen!

4.  How successful I am is entirely up to me. This can be terrifying, but it’s also incredibly fulfilling.  I know that the big wins are mine.  I can also own and take responsibility for the stuff that’s not working.  This gives me great sense of power and accomplishment – and pride!

5.  I get to seek out the people that I want to work with. I love that I have so much in common with the moms I work with.  Often it feels like I’m just hanging out with good friends and that makes work not feel like work!

6.  My kids get to see my dreams unfolding. They watch me work and know that dreams don’t just fall off trees – you have to work hard to make them happen.  But, when you do, you get to live life on your own terms, a life that is deeply rewarding and FUN!   As a mom, it’s important to me that I teach my kids these life lessons.  I love knowing that I am.

7.  I can work wherever I want. Outside, at the coffee shop, on the couch, in the mountains, at the beach!   My office moves with me and even though I’ve not (yet!) fully experienced this awesome perk, I LOVE knowing that it’s there and that I can take advantage whenever I want!

8.  Making a difference is one of my core values, it’s part of my big vision for life.  My business is an expression of that.  Because I’ve designed it that way. One of the biggest perks to working for yourself is that your business can be part of your big vision and you can go to sleep every night knowing that what you do matters and is 100% aligned with who you are and what your life is about.

I am working away this weekend… planning, writing, figuring out how to make all my fun ideas happen.   :)    This is so what I love to be doing!!!  And I am amazed at how true it is that when you find your passion and run with it, pretty much nothing feels like work!  It is all just doing what you love!

I’ve been wanting to share about what is brewing over here at Visionary Mom.   So, I decided that, instead of writing about it,  I would make a little video so I can really share my excitement and give you a sneak peek at all the good stuff coming your way.

Here is me babbling away on a Saturday afternoon.  :)  Enjoy!

I say work a lot.  Working on our dreams.  Getting to work.  What are you working on?

The word “work” tends to evoke negative feelings.  Except when you love what you do, then work is a pleasure.  Getting to work is a joy.  Working on stuff is fun.

So, don’t get turned off when I talk about work.  It is, for me, the good stuff.

So ~ where do you work?

Do you have space dedicated to your art, your writing, your craft?  Do you have a place you sit and work on stuff?  A space that is all your own?

We live in an RV, so all of the space here belongs to all of us.  Right now as I am writing this, my kids are painting, I can see the mountains out the window.  The clouds are rolling in as a storm feels the need to bless us.  I have some groovy music playing in the background, I am ignoring the pile of dishes that are trying to get my attention and I am working.

This is my space.  My time to write, to think, to connect.

What is the space you use to get some work done?  Does it inspire you?  Do you love it?  Does it need some attention to make it a place that feeds your soul?

I think that where we work says a lot about who we are and how important our dreams are to us.  So, take a moment and look at your space.  Or maybe you have NO space to call your own, think about that.

What does your space say about you, about your dreams?

If your space could use some work, how could you make it really awesome?  What could you do that would have where you work inspire you?  Maybe it’s time to make a plan to do that.

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to go hunting for some really great workspaces to share with you.

So, a little inspiration…
