The hardest thing to do is to describe to someone how you are feeling stuck or unworthy in your life. The feelings that are the hardest to explain are usually the most toxic.
Do you feel like what happened to you in your past will never go away?
Do you often find yourself hiding within yourself because the idea of actually saying out loud what happened terrifies you?
Do you look at yourself in the mirror and wonder who is staring back at you?
There comes a time when your past will make you feel so unrecognizable to yourself that you don't even know how to express who you are anymore. It is time to look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself that you are here, fighting the battle to be able to smile without hiding the pain. Your transformation is here.
I feel like I am continuously going through a transformation period within my business and my life. It is in a constant state of evolution and I absolutely love what I am learning about myself. Now, this also means that there have been some dark days. Days of wondering if I am good enough to be even doing what I am doing.
You will constantly hear me talk about how lucky I am to be surrounded by the women that I am surrounded by. Over the past 6 years, the women that have come into my life, have allowed me to grow and expand in ways that I never thought possible. I thought that after going through a huge self-love journey from 2014-2015, there was nothing else to learn. Little did I know, that year was ONLY the beginning of what I was going to experience to stand in my true power.
I have felt for the last year that putting a label on what I did was going to hinder me. It was going to stop me from encompassing all that I am. In June of 2020, I decided to rebrand and I stopped talking about self-care and self-love in my blogging. I had decided that I needed to listen to the advice from others and separate those pieces of me.
It is funny how life has a way of making a complete circle around you. I have felt for awhile now that I am more than just a blogging coach. Yes, I teach women to blog but it is more than that. It is a journey. A journey of healing and discovering themselves. A journey of finally standing in the power of their past and creating a future that will change the world. My problem was…
How do I show that to the outside world?
I thought that I needed to talk about the technicalities of blogging in order to reach the readers that I wanted to reach. I thought that I needed to silence the voice inside of me that was teaching women that blogging is more than SEO because that is going against EVERYTHING that ALL the other blogging coaches are talking about.
The thing is….
That is what separates me from EVERY OTHER BLOGGING COACH OUT THERE! That is MY power. That is MY impact. That is MY journey.
TURNING BLOGOLOGY INTO THE FIERCE GROWTH ACCELERATOR
I feel like my two halves are finally coming together in the way that they were meant to be. I am working with a coach, Lizzie, who is helping me walk through this process. Through simple questions that I knew the basic answer to and she asked me to dig deeper. Something else emerged. Something that blended my idea of purposeful blogging with storytelling.
At first, Lizzie suggested that I call myself a mindset coach so I changed my social media to say both. Something felt off. I don’t consider myself a mindset coach because that is something that I am constantly working on. There had to be a different way to say what she was thinking.
And then it came to me, in a dream. It was so random and I woke up feeling like it was the perfect blend of what I have always imagined myself doing.
These words encompass EVERYTHING that I do through blogging.
Blogology was originally my 7-week blogging course to take you from idea to blog.
It has since been MASSIVELY UPGRADED and become...
Fierce Growth Accelerator!
A 3-month group program that helps you heal your past and write your future. It is the PERFECT combination of healing and blogging.
An ALL IN ONE PROGRAM! How cool is that?
I personally don't know anyone else doing this, so I think it's friggin' AWESOME!
This program will enable you to heal your past and write your future, all through blogging!
-You could create a unique healing journey through the power of words.
-You could wake up every morning finally feel like the weight on your shoulders is gone.
-You are finally moving forward in your life and putting your past to work.
This program is FOR YOU if:
-You have a story that you want to share with others. (Remember WE ALL HAVE STORIES!)
-You want to learn how to blog but don't want to spend hours in front of your computer watching YouTube. (I already did that for you!)
-You question if you have anything to teach someone. (AGAIN, YOU DO!)
-You are looking to fall more in love with yourself and your life.
This program is NOT FOR YOU if:
-You already have a blog set up. (My 1 on 1 coaching is the better fit for you.)
-You want the healing work to be done for you.
-You are NOT ready to dig deep into your past and learn how to heal from it.
Fierce is my word for 2021.
What is your word for 2021? Comment below.
To me, it represents standing in my power.
It represents putting myself out there in ways that I never have before.
Using this word in my program means that we are going to do some HARDCORE healing together.
Here's how the program will go down:
THE LAYOUT OF THE FIERCE GROWTH ACCELERATOR
Here's how the program will go down:
WEEK ONE: RECOGNIZING YOUR STORY
And YES, you have a story! So many women think that they don't have a story to tell or that no one wants to hear their story. I don't believe that for a second. In week one, we'll deep dive into ways for you to recognize your story and begin to embrace all of the pieces that make it up. The good, the bad and the ugly.
WEEK TWO: CREATING YOUR VISION
All about dreaming and creating a vision for your blog and sharing your story. We'll talk about branding, goals, and your why. We'll break down every piece of your vision into actionable steps to help you through this journey with a plan because overwhelm only delays the healing process and I know you want FAST RESULTS.
WEEK THREE: SETTING UP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media is a HUGE piece of the blogging puzzle. We'll talk about platforms that you should be using and create a social strategy so you have a roadmap to follow, again, to prevent overwhelm. We'll put your branding into action and get you feeling confident and empowered when using social media to promote your blog.
WEEK FOUR: CREATING YOUR NICHE & IDEAL READER
We really dive into your story here to narrow down your niche and who your ideal client/audience is. Because without readers, you earn no money. And as much as this program is about healing, it's also about empowering you to EARN MONEY from your blog too!
WEEK FIVE: KEYWORDS & CATEGORIES
We'll research the keywords your reader is searching, and incorporate these into your blog posts to ensure they are SEO-optimized (basically seen by your ideal client/audience, which is kind of the point. You don't want a blog without any readers!)
WEEK SIX: DOCUMENTING YOUR STORY
We dig into how you can document your story while living through it, which will drive HUGE TRAFFIC to your blog! Human beings THRIVE off of storytelling. It's a tale as old as time. Storytelling content will NEVER go out of style. I'll also show you how to use your story to monetize your blog, how exciting!
WEEK SEVEN: CREATING YOUR CONTENT CALENDAR
Including content for your blog and social media, and which topics are most relevant to your ideal client/audience. Content can be overwhelming, but it doesn't HAVE to be! A content calendar will give you a step by step process to follow, so you can leverage your time efficiently.
WEEK EIGHT: BLOG POSTS, SEO, BLOGGING TOOLS & EMAIL LISTS
I'll break the technicalities down into manageable steps so it isn't overwhelming, do not worry! We'll go into the basics of writing a blog post and how to leverage SEO. Email lists are by no means dead. Unlike social media, you actually OWN your email list, and you, fortunately, can't be shadow banned. We'll build your email list in order to drive traffic to your website and blog, and vice-versa. Because traffic can equal money if done in the correct way.
WEEK NINE: THRIVING IN YOUR STORY
Learning how to stand in the power of your past will help you to heal in ways that you never imagined! As I said previously, storytelling is as old as time. But there's a FIRM difference between recognizing your story and THRIVING in your story. After this week, you will feel EMPOWERED to show up AUTHENTICALLY and in an ALIGNED way on both your blog and social media! Because when you show up as your most AUTHENTIC SELF, you attract your DREAM AUDIENCE, as they connect with what you're saying.
WEEK TEN: ORGANIZING & MAINTAINING INSPIRATION
I would be lying to you if I told you that your inspiration would stay throughout blogging. It comes in waves. We'll talk about ways to maintain your inspiration, what to do when you lose inspiration and how to organize your blog so that it doesn't overwhelm you or demand too much of your time.
WEEK ELEVEN: CREATING BLOGGING CONNECTIONS
How to build blogging connections and position yourself as an expert authority within your niche. Like with most things, it's not what you know but WHO YOU KNOW!! Here you will feel confident and empowered to network with other bloggers, as well as your ideal client/audience because that's where there's a lot of monetization opportunities.
WEEK TWELVE: MONETIZE YOUR BLOG
We'll dig even deeper into your options and implement ways to start making an income, through sharing your story. How cool is that?
It is time for you to step into your power. To become the woman that you are dreaming about every night you fall asleep. To rediscover who you are meant to be. To take that pain and use it for a purpose. To make sense of all that you have gone through. No more waiting. Sometimes we all need a leap of faith, let me be that leap of faith for you.
