Tired, exhausted and fed up with marketing?
Maybe it's time for a Marketing Detox

Yup, that's what I said.  Detox.  You have been taking in any marketing information you can since the day you started your business.  Every time your business isnít going the way you want it to, you immediately go for a marketing fix!! Iíll just do more marketing!!! Itís your reset button every time. And every time you land back at being exhausted and fried because you got swept up in a marketing tornado.

You've been learning, absorbing and hiring professionals to help you determine the best course of action for your business.  If you are experiencing marketing tornados, then you have become a marketing junkie.  I know, you never thought that could be possible!  In the beginning you didn't know much at all about marketing, so you had to learn everything you could. 

Hey, guess've learned a lot!  You're still learning and you're still listening to what those around you say is the best for you. 

That's the problem.  Marketing tornados are born when you stop choosing marketing for yourself. 

When was the last time you planned a marketing campaign around a vacation? 

When was the last time you took a vacation without your computer? 

When was the last time you trusted your own judgment enough to not call and check in with a colleague or marketing expert...just to make sure you were doing it "right"? 

When was the last time you chose based on what you want vs. what others said you were "supposed" to do for a successful business?

It's time to detox and get all those foreign ideas out of your head.  It's time to trust your knowledge and intuition.  There is a world where marketing is not the king of growing your business. There is a world where marketing tornados can be avoided. I want you to start owning your lifestyle. I want you to take a breather.  What would it be like to ignore what the gurus and coaches said you had to do, so you could catch your breath and enjoy your business?

The dirty little secret is...

You are a coach.  You help others make their own choices, yet you aren't making your own choices when it comes to marketing.  You help others create space for a full and fulfilling life/business.  However, you are doing what you were told to do, not what you choose to do.  If you aren't doing the work you expect your clients to do, how can you expect potential clients to trust you?  Remember, people buy from those they trust!

Now, I know you're probably thinking...GREAT!  Thanks for opening my eyes, I'm going to go work on that.  After all, you are a coach and you specialize in this stuff.  Here's the challenge with that.  You do need to do marketing.  You need to be able to keep your pipeline filling, but you also need a breather.  Do you know how to do that?  Do you know how to slow down?  I know you know how to choose to take a breather, but do you know how to do it in a way that serves you AND your business?  Not only that, you know it's hard to see those places where you aren't choosing what you want.  You need someone to hold up a mirror.  Have you ever created structures that support you in marketing while having a life?  I'm guessing this is NOT something you specialize in.  You need someone who can help you create structure, boundaries and checks so you can be fully supported in choosing for yourself.
