The Art of Sacred Selling

22 Aug

Susanna Maida of Reweaving the World.

If you want to grow a thriving business doing your great work, one of the most important business skills you need to master is how to have successful one-on-one enrolling (selling) conversations with potential clients, without feeling pushy, manipulative, or out of integrity with your values.

The most important investment I’ve made thus far into my business is learning this very skill. I took an entire year to study and apply the art of “selling as service” with a high-level coach. I am now much more comfortable in sales conversations and best of all am able to serve potential clients through the sale process from a place of Freedom, Joy and non-attachment.

Tomorrow, Thursday, August 23rd, my gifted friend and colleague Susanna Maida is hosting a free training call to help you boost your ability to have high-integrity, deeply connecting, be-of-service conversations with potential clients that invite them to take the next step in their transformative journey with you.

It’s called 3 Secrets for Keeping Your Ideal Clients from Slipping through Your Fingers with the Art of Sacred Selling. If you feel anxious or squirmy at the thought of having an effective enrolling conversation, this training can really help you fall in love with “selling as service” so you can relax into it, just be yourself, and hear far more “Yes, I want to work with you! How do I get started?”

To register, go here: The Art of Sacred Selling.

I’ve experienced Suzanna teach on this topic before and highly recommend you tune in. I’ll be there too as I know she’ll be sharing content that I’ll be able to apply in my practice right away… Come join me!

And yes, there will be a recording, so even if you aren’t able to attend live be sure to register so that you’ll still be able to access the recorded call.

Aloha Kakou sweet Be Your Brilliance readers!

I missed posting yesterday as it’s honestly been super fun for me to get into the habit of regularly sharing with you and my fellow Ultimate Blog Challenge friends.

I’m inspired to share a 5 part video series I created a few years ago in the next few posts I have lined up for early this week.

Each video is on the topic of ALOHA, the Hawaiian word for Love most often thought of as a greeting. As you’ll find through this series, ALOHA is all of this plus a whole lot more!

Here is Video 1 of 5 in the A-L-O-H-A Series: A is for AKAHAI…

In Joy and be sure to share your experience of ALOHA with us in the comment section below.

Who’s On Your Team?

7 Jul

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s enfusionize!

For some reason up until now I haven’t officially let it be known that I’m part of an AMAZING collaborative team.

We are truly awesome and so are our clients!!!

Team enfusionize is 20+ folks, all entrepreneurs in our own right who came together in Fall 2011 to create a full-service Infusionsoft Certified Internet Marketing implementation company serving Conscious Entrepreneurs, Thought Leaders and Creative Visionaries.

The hat I wear is Lead Brand Manager and boy do I love what I do! I assist our clients with Personal Branding, Client Enrollment and Engagement and Brand Asset creation. In a nutshell I help them to mine and leverage their brilliance so they can make a greater impact with their mission, their message and their sales and serve way more people while they’re at it!

We apply our holistic internet marketing model to solve the most common problem we see entrepreneurs facing: a piece-meal approach to getting things done in their business.

I can tell you that having a full-service team of high-level service providers who are also internet marketers AND entrepreneurs on your side is AWESOME; enfusionize is my go-to team too! I have a web series I’m creating (soon to be revealed here) and I’m stoked that enfusionize is creating my site, branding and marketing materials for it. Stay tuned…

I’m also bringing on Music Manager to assist me with promoting and placing my music! If you love upbeat, positive tunes have a listen for free at my current music site http://sonicbids.com/alohadevmusic

So, who’s on your team and why do you love working with them?

Small Kid Time

5 Jul

Small kid time… Hanabadda days…
Back in the day…

There was a time when opening the mail box was like Christmas for me… and this was a near-daily occurance! I had over 300 pen pals at one point and my record for receiving the most letters in a day is 25. Each envelope was a colorful work of art onto itself and came stuffed with slams (see below), confetti/sticker packets, custom address labels and yes, a handwritten letter.

Slams are little handmade booklets that are swapped from person to person where responses to a series of questions are written down. It begins when a friend makes one for another friend. When the booklet is full the last person to fill his/her answers sends the slam to the person it was started for. As the slam travels, each person adds their address label to page one. You can meet and add new pen pals this way in a similar manner that requesting to “friend” a new person on Facebook functions today.

Imagine my delight as I discovered something called the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap in one of the blogs (we have over 600 folks participating!) that caught my eye yesterday on the Ultimate Blogging Challenge Wall on Facebook. I’m now signed up to participate thanks to Fellow UBC blogger and creative Jo who lives in Aotearoa (aka New Zealand). Check out her process here: JosLittlePictures

Collage Cards Re-Purposed for My “Positioning Your Story and the Dream You Serve” eBook Cover

Yes!… I’m feeling excited with the prospect of exchanging artsy mail again! How it works is participants create art in any medium, document it and then print the image/s onto postcards. You send 5 of these with postage and a return address to Kat, (Founder of Kat Eye Studio). She then sends them off to 5 folks and you eventually receive 5 in the mail in return.

Earlier this year I purged most of my art supplies in a whirlwind of “get rid of it” energy… I did however keep some key items (YAY!) that I’ll be using for this project: my bold color Crayola marker set, watercolor pencils and Prismacolor pencils. Add into the mix a peppering of collage elements and voila.. Instant FUN!

Is there something you enjoyed creating when you were a kid that you currently practice or want to bring more of into your life? Share it with us here…

Freedom IS Free

4 Jul

Spoiler Alert: This post goes against the so-called “norm” and prevailing (up until now) way of thinking on our planet. It may ruffle some feathers. And you know what? I’m Good/God with that. 🙂

Have you ever heard the quote “freedom isn’t free”?

I’m here to tell you: Freedom IS Free!

Guess what? IT IS.

Guess what else? True Freedom has nothing to do with the government, nations, fights, wars, defending, power, control, battles, guns, tanks, bombs or “stylish” camouflage attire. Neither does it have anything to do with red, white or blue, flags or the 4th of July.

True Freedom has EVERYTHING to do with you. With me. With us. With each of our individual and volitional CHOICE to choose Freedom as a way of BEING. As an unwavering Reality dependent on no one else but ourSelves.

It has everything to do with Empowerment. Forgiveness. Detachment. Aloha (Love). Acceptance. Grace. Presence. And Vigilance – Eternal Vigilance, as my Teacher Dr. Roger B. Lane appropriately calls it.

See, no matter what the body your Soul happens to be wearing looks like, feels like, seems like, smells like, talks like, works like or thinks like – In any moment you’re Free to Choose into the Freedom that’s always available or to choose into a state of being “enslaved”.

I suppose redefining “Freedom” is in order. Ultimate Freedom is not about outer circumstances, a declaration of independence or the ability to accumulate things materially (though there’s nothing wrong with having and enjoying things and… kudos to the “founding fathers”).

True Freedom is Being Free no matter what. Where we’re attachment-free, exercising our ability to be in the world but not of it. Where we’re choosing to let go of any drama and the perpetuation of millennia of struggle, suffering, story and pain.

And hey, by no means am I discounting the past, tradition, history, herstory, family, memory or your story by sharing the simple Truth above.

What I AM suggesting is that none of this has power “over” you or can take away the fact that you have Free Will on your side. As you Choose to Empower your Inner Environment you may notice your outer environment shifts to support that.


Only you hold the key to Free yourSelf from attachment to anything past, present or future.

In fact, the things that we’ve allowed to enslave us (in a nutshell, anything that isn’t of God/Source/Spirit) offer the greatest opportunity for us to move into and Choose Freedom – moment-to-moment.

And you may have to make that choice 10 times. 100 times. 1000 times. Or more. But you know what? You’re Worth it. I’m Worth it. The Whole of Humanity is Worth it.

“Yeah”, I can hear someone say, “but what about the holocaust, cancer, drugs, wars, rape, injustice, starvation, pollution, disaster, etc.? These are horrible things that are so unfair…”

To this I say let go of seeing them as fair or unfair. Right or wrong. This or that. Us vs. them.

By no means am I suggesting you like “fucked-up shit” or agree with any of the multitudes of negativity here on the planet.

Accept. Forgive. Transcend. Take note of the story of Victor Frankl. And the story of Kimmie Weeks (whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting).

With all the freed up energy that Forgiveness provides you may find yourSelf choosing (from a neutral place of inspired action) to assist others with Freeing themSelves, helping to improve their conditions, speaking and advocating for positive alternatives or even starting a business based on filling a need you’ve identified.

A Place of Forgiveness is a Place of Power
Now is the time, this is the hour
Never too late to enter Blessed States
The Choice is Yours, Choose into Grace

Come into Forgiveness, Spirit as Your Witness
Release, Surrender negativity

Give it all up and Set yourSelf Free
Tell yourSelf it’s OK to Let it Go
Judgements drift away and now you know
Yes You’re OK you’ve entered the Flow

Come into Forgiveness, Spirit as Your Witness
Release, Surrender negativity
