Arlan Hamilton & I taking a moment at the Creative Heroine
Experience before going on stage.
For over 17 years growing this success coaching and brand consulting business, nothing has grown my business OR MY JOY more than hosting workshops, retreats, and larger event experiences. And though that sounds like it was a business model decision I got clear on years ago, as I shared in a newsletter a few days ago (HERE), it wasn’t — it was a life model decision.
With so much virtual everything “these days” and with the tragic losses of my Mom and brother “behind me” and inside me, I was guided over the last many years to be even more in person with my clients and friends and to, generally, prioritize connection, not just with my tribe and with my clients, but within all my friendships, too (this is documented within the Relationship Experiment I’ve shared with you — did you ever get to watch that video? ~> bit.ly/2oC4b7V).
Though I had run many events before the deaths of my beloveds five years ago (having been in business for 17 years), the events I’ve designed since those losses have been different in feeling, a representation of the internal environment which had changed, in the best and in the most raw and honest of ways.
Arlan was recently in Forbes for her work as a ‘Venture Catalyst’
for underrepresented founders, primarily for women, people of color
and the LGBTQ community, I couldn’t support her work in the world
more, (thank you for connecting us, Holly!).
The events I’ve been a part of since they passed have not been events, but more experiences — those for the senses…and as I type that, I see that with the life experiences as of late, they honestly couldn’t have been anything other than exactly THAT.
Maybe like you, I’ve been on the search for the way business (and my offerings to support others in the ways my genius and talents know best) could feel like a more true extension or representation of the internal environment that exists today. I said something very similar to that when I was sharing about this just a few days ago.
I guess the bottom line is that we are constantly changing and if our businesses, brand expression and the general integration of more of all of our true selves don’t make their way front and center (and stay there), we are stepping away from the very creation of anything truly authentic or long-lasting – that’s what I’ve gathered like strawberries in a field…
What are you gathering or understanding deeper as of late?
What life model-turned-business model will you be introducing soon?
Make happiness your business by creating your authentic brand…enjoy your business, enjoy your life!
Life is good,
Just as I did in person here in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, I’d love to share the insight, lessons, and successes with you in the following immersion, soon to start in November through helping you create your first or next event experience! You can check out the Ecstatic Experience Virtual Immersion HERE.
Though it’s a virtual offering, know that since I’ve presented it LIVE and in person already (in LA on 9/29) know that you will receive that benefit – plus I can’t deny the fact that anything I do now that’s virtual or online in this new season will not feel like that. At least, that’s what I’ve been going for the last few years when I DO do virtual programs (I always do my damndest to make it feel like you are sitting in my living room – in fact, that’s where I’ll be sitting when I deliver these training for these three weeks plus our bonus fourth week).
Speaking of — peruse the weeks here ~> www.michelleghilotti.com/ecstatic-experience-virtual-imersion and join us if you feel it’s genuinely time for you to incorporate adding more event experiences to your life model as expressed in your business.
We start in November and take an integration and family break during our November U.S. holiday (gobble gobble).
I’d love to walk hand-in-hand with you, helping to make this potentially new step into the creation of event experiences easier and more fun and effortless for you.
