On a day like today, I cannot not say anything.

And yet, I don’t know what to say.

Except that I feel deeply sad.

I don’t know what to do.

I pray for peace. I pray for this not to be turned into any kind of religious intolerance. I pray for this not to turn into war.

I pray for those two beautiful souls that died. I pray for their families and all who knew them. I pray for the deva of Sydney, the spirit of the city, that has one great gaping hole in it today.

We will not become jaded. We will not become closed off. We will not hurt each other.

We will not slacken our gun laws in the hopeless thought that more guns would create more peace.

We will not believe that this is a terrorist attack. It wasn’t. It was the act of one disturbed, broken, violent soul. We will not believe it was the act of any organisation, any religion.

We will have our hearts cracked and softened. We will sit with ourselves, with the pains, the shock, the grief that arise. We will tend to ourselves. We will go gently. We will not lash out. We will reach out. We will talk together as gently as we can, and see what can be done. We will continue to grow our community, our cities, our world based in the values of respect, kindness and love.

There is no other way but love. Fear, intolerance and backlash only creates more of the same. Let us look at South Sudan, where they don’t even know what they fight for any longer, only that there is an Us and a Them.

We know different.

We know there is only ever us.

We will ride with each other. We will ride with our own selves.

We will face the great, gaping void.

And we will choose love, not fear.

We know it will make the difference.

In tender love today,
Leonie

P.S. I am sorry for your pain. Me too. xoxo

sorry

Hey lovelies,

I wanted to give you an update about 2015 printed workbook orders.

We’ve had some huge delays along the way with the workbooks. I wanted to give you a headsup about what’s happening and when you can expect your books.

(Not digital workbook orders! If you’ve ordered them and they haven’t arrived in your email, email us el pronto – support@leoniedawson.com and we’ll get you sorted ASAP!)

  • This year, we decided to self-publish + distribute the books ourselves so that we could create a much better product for you (spiral bound! free wall planner! more awesomeness! bonus accompanying meditation MP3 + goal-setting course delivered by email!) at a better/more stable price! I utterly know for sure it was the right thing to do, and it’s also been a huuuuuuge undertaking with many, many late nights + nutty days by me, my love, my team, our printers and our mailing houses to try and get this baby out in time.
  • We totally considered doing mailing from in-house so we could have more control. We ran the figures and knew we would be totally unable to keep up with demand of sending up to a thousand books a day. I love my post office lady Cindy a LOT… but not enough to be spending all day every day at the post office with her writing a gazillion Customs declarations!
  • We outsourced + found mailing house experts + have contracted mailing houses in THREE countries – UK, US & AUS – to try and make shipping as fast and affordable for you as possible. Unfortunately this has totally added to the complexity of it all!
  • We were scheduled to start delivering books from 1 December. We opened orders before then as pre-orders.
  • UK + Aus mailing houses started delivering books from 1 December.
  • US (+ Canada + South America) orders were delayed as US Customs held up our shipment until last week. Once they were cleared, our US mailing house have been working hard at the backlog of 1400+ books that were due to be sent out. We’re hoping the whole backlog will be all sent out from this week. I’m sorry. We’re doing everything we can. They do seem to be arriving very quickly once they’ve dispatched. We’re super hopeful everyone will get their orders delivered before Xmas.
  • You will be sent a shipping confirmation [and tracking number if available] once your workbooks have been sent out from the mailing house. Unfortunately we are unable to provide shipping and tracking information prior to the mailing center sending this email to you.
  • We’ve been hearing that some lovely enthusiastic peeps found our hidden test sales pages before they were live, and placed orders before our shopping cart was live, and before we’d even announced the workbooks. If you placed an order before 18 November, chances are you’ve placed a fake order (that would also not have processed with your credit card). I’m sorry – we were caught completely unaware. A little bit like being caught naked as we were changing! Email us (support@leoniedawson.com) to make sure we have your order.
  • We’ve heard from some Australians that they didn’t realise workbooks were priced in US dollars and wondered why they are. I wanted to be totally transparent with you so you know why we sell in US dollars (for all our stuff, and have for years):
    – We sell 75% of our books to the US. They are our major market. On top of this, we sell to over 70 countries. US currency is far more easily recognised than Australian.
    – We can’t sell in more than one currency due to our shopping cart.
    – We prominently display on every single purchase button that it is in US dollars.
    – If you’re not sure what the exchange rate is from US dollars to AUS, you can always check a currency convertor website like this one.

Screenshot 2014-12-15 16.40.09

  • If you haven’t received your order, please, please EMAIL us (support@leoniedawson.com). We’ll be able to confirm for you whether your order has been received, and that it’s been sent to the mailing house for them to send your book out to you. We can’t control how quickly they then send the book out because it depends on their shipping loads + containers, but they promise us that it is happening as fast as they can.
  • EMAIL is the best, quickest way for us to get things resolved. I think sometimes we all get a bit complacent and think Facebook comments are enough. Unfortunately, they do get lost in the blend – we don’t see them, and you don’t see when we’ve replied to you. Also, the joy of EMAIL is that we are much more easily able to find your order for you!
  • My lovely support fairies (Joyce, Erin + Amber) are working their lil fingers off right now. We are getting a huge amount of emails as this is our busiest month of the year. We are trying to get to your emails as fast as we can and we are receiving hundreds upon hundreds of emails each day which require a whole lot of love and attention.

Thank you all so so so much for your orders, love + enthusiasm.

This has been such a hugely frustrating and at times quite scary journey as we deal with organisations that are outside of our control (Customs + the distribution houses!). When I rule the world, this shiz would get sorted el pronto!

We’re doing absolutely everything we can to get them to you in time for Christmas.

I’m so sorry this is taking so long. I’m so sorry for the hiccups. We’re doing absolutely everything we can. And of course, I’ll be sharing every bloody lesson we’ve learned along the way!

I really realllllly love this workbook, and I am fiercely proud of what we’ve managed to pull off this year. I think you are going to be absolutely delighted once it is in your hands… creating the magic for you.

Can’t wait.

Until then… GROUP HUGS!!!!

Love you all long time,

Gorgeous wonderbears,

There’s so much beautiful energy and excitement around these books.

It really is my favourite time of the year.

Just wanted to remind you that only have a couple of days left to purchase the gift of an incredible year for Christmas presents (but you better get cracking!!!!)

The 2015 workbooks make perfect gifts for:

  • soul sisters + dear friends
  • actual sisters (!)
  • teenage daughters
  • co-workers
  • clients
  • business associates!

Two examples of gifting I love:

One best-selling author has bought 50(!!!!) to give to her coaches.

Another has bought dozens to give to her private-level mastermind.

YOU CAN GIFT:

give an incredible 2015

HAS THE BOOK CHANGED?

It’s significantly different from 2010-2013 workbooks, and slightly different from 2014.

I’ve added pages including:

  • Monthly check-in sheets to make sure you stay on track throughout the year
  • A checklist of what to do if you fall of the workbook wagon

Also, the printed workbook this year has:

  • Free A2 wall planner
  • Notes section
  • And is spiral bound to make it much easier to use as a workbook!

testimonials_flattened 2

 

ARE YOU SELLING ON AMAZON THIS YEAR?

No – the ONLY way you can order the book through this year is through our website.

Lots of reasons why we’ve done this – but mostly so that we could provide you with:

  • a spiral bound book
  • a free bonus A2 wall planner
  • affiliate commission if you want to share about them!

To make shipping as affordable and fast for you as possible, we have the books in mailing houses in THREE countries:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia

We did have some hiccups getting through US Customs, but that’s all settled now and our US mailing house is fully functioning now!

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM EVERYTHING ELSE OUT THERE?

This makes me giggle. When I started producing these goals workbooks six years ago… there was really nothing else like it on the market.

A workbook? To sort out goals for the next year? One that did life goals? And business goals?

Unheard of.

It’s so funny to think of those times.

Because of the success of my workbooks, there are a metric shittonne of peeps who’ve riffed their own version of it.

Some have copied questions + even my illustration style + handwriting.

It’s been pretty funny (and sometimes upsetting honestly when I see blatant copies… the world wants to see everyone’s soul gifts… not just endless copies of the same stuff).

Each year I totally try and outdo myself and make it even better + bigger + more powerful than the years before. We’re kinda working on six years of having results, so it’s workin’ in our favour. 40 000 peeps can’t be wrong!

And it’s really heart-warming to get from peeps like this.

I tried the other workbooks. And they just do NOT work the same as yours. I don’t get the same results. I’m now your workbook devotee for life.

testimonials_flattened 42

 

DO YOU SHIP TO MALAYSIA/UZBEKISTAN/MONGOLIA/BACK OF BOURKE?

Yes.

We ship internationally.

Our mailing houses are in US, UK + Aus.

We’re working on intergalactically. Branson, you and me should hook up to sort this out. ALIEN GODDESSES NEED THIS FREAKIN BOOK.

Screenshot 2014-12-10 17.21.14

The 2015 workbook right where it belongs, amongst all the hippy accoutrements! Thanks Naughty Naturopath Mum!

WILL THE WORKBOOKS WORK FOR ME?

Here’s a handy guide.

 You’re only allowed to get this workbook if you:

  • love rainbows
  • have big dreams that you want to see come true
  • aren’t a big whiny victim (booo is for boooring!)
  • are willing to actually do the work
  • want to actually see + create change in your life + biz in 2015.

Otherwise DO NOT CLICK ON ME. SERIOUSLY.

testimonials_flattened 112

HOW DO I BUY MORE?

Want to buy more than five?

We’d LOVE that! Just email us at support@leoniedawson.com with your address + how many you want to receive, and we’ll work out a price for you!

A PORTION OF EVERY SALE GOES TO CHARITY!

Goes to a range of charities that are changing the world, including Kiva, World Vision, Doctors Without Borders + WWF.

Stunning setup. Thanks Sabrina Jensen in Denmark (by the way… that’s where my ancestry is from!!! My maiden-maiden-maiden name is Anderson!)

ORDER NOW FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY

Seriously guys. You have to get your butt into gear if you want to order.

If you are living in:

  • Australia
  • United Kingdom
  • US

you should get your workbooks before Chrissy if you order now.

If you’re outside of those countries, I don’t know. I bloody well hope so, but there’s no accounting for Customs, my current Arch Nemesis!

(That IS of course for printed books. You CAN order the electronic versions and have 100% chance of it being delivered before! You can gift the e-workbooks and they’ll receive a SUPWISE! YOU’VE BEEN GIFTED! email from us! E-workbooks can be filled out on computer, iPad or printed out!)

GET CRACKING GODDESSES!

CLICK.CLICK.CLICK. UNLESS YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED HAVING AN AMAZING LIFE + BIZ IN 2015. IF YOU DON’T WANT THAT AT ALL, YOU BETTER NOT CLICK. 

(I kid. I kid. Not really. Maybe. #sorrynotsorry)

To impossible wonderfulness and beyond!

P.S. Guys – I rarely make all out sales pitches these days. I tend to trust that if you are called to working deeper with me, you will.

However… if you’re at ALL interesting in what I have to say… if you give a shit at all about making your life happier or more creative… if you have a business you’d like to grow… then I really have not.a.freaking.clue why you WOULDN’T buy the workbook and bloody well use it.

It’s cheap as chips. It bloody well WORKS (as long as you use it!) And peeps see SO MUCH differences in their lives + businesses as a result.

Honestly – if you’re not willing to invest in this and do it… may I please ask why you’re interested in hearing from me at all?After years of doing this, I know that REAL CHANGE happens when we step up, invest in ourselves and commit to doing the work. Before then, it’s all just a momentary band-aid. I know that can press buttons. I’m sorry. I do. But I need to speak it.

I really want to help you create what you want. I offer the 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz Workbook knowing what a difference it makes. It’s got 6 years and 40 000 women and a shit tonne of testimonials and results behind it. I offer it whole of heart and know it can make a real change.

Here in Australia we have a saying – 

SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT.

Either you’re ready to do the work to change your life or biz, or you’re not.

The workbook is here when you’re ready.

xoxoxo

GUYS!

WHAT ON EARTH MADE YOU CLICK ON THAT TITLE?

Book porn?

Oh yeah, book porn.

I can give you book porn.

Bunches of peeps have been asking to see the printed 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz workbook + wall planner.

So me + huzzlebunches took some photos.

“Look sultry. No, flex your spiral binding THAT way, bookywooky. Oh yes.”

IMG_2862

So this is how the book arrives when your postman soirees past in tight shorty shorts.

Brown cardboard. Erotik turquoise inkage.

Why hellloooooooo.

IMG_2866

I honestly didn’t know this post was going to be like this.

Now all these photos seem very filled with innuendo…

WHY DO I ALWAYS CROSS THE LINE? WHY IS IT IF THERE IS A LINE TO BE CROSSED I WILL CROSS IT? WHY, IF THERE IS NO LINE TO CROSS, DO I MAKE ONE JUST SO I CAN CROSS IT?

These are the things that keep me awake at night, people.

Well, that and a crying baby.

But mostly the questions.

IMG_2867

Okay, here’s the first page of the book.

One of you rad chicks suggested this page.

I thought it was a tops idea.

Your wish is my command.

IMG_2870

A portion of profits from the workbook go to supporting a range of charities including Doctors Without Borders, Kiva, World Wildlife Fund, World Vision, Red Cross and many more. Philanthropyyyyy foreverrrrrrrr! Heart-soaked abundance really can change the world.

IMG_2875

There’s over 100 pages in the workbook. Thick and luscious.

Packed full of big, good questions that are going to seriously help you get your ducks in a row + your biz + life dreams coming true.

IMG_2892

The workbook is divided into two parts – one concentrating on life goals, and the other on business goals.

(If you don’t have a business, you can just do the life stuff!)

IMG_2878

There’s a kind of magic and wonder to it all. Each question + activity will help you:

  • come to terms with the year that’s just happened
  • mine it for the big lessons + blessings you need to carry forward with
  • let go of the stuff that is too heavy to carry
  • articulate your vision for the coming year
  • work out exactly what your goals are in a HUGE range of areas in your life and business
  • give you an action plan to make sure those goals ACTUALLY COME TRUE.

IMG_2883

IMG_2899

In the Life realm, you’ll be led through the process of creating:

  • Finance goals
  • Health goals
  • Family and friendship goals
  • Home goals
  • Creative goals
  • Ritual Days
  • Dreamboards
  • Word of the Year
  • Creating a Retreat for Yourself
  • an Oracle Card Reading for the year ahead
  • Time Management goals
  • + lots more powerful, joyful tasks that have been proven to make such a difference to creating your dreams + ideal life!

IMG_2880

IMG_2887IMG_2886 IMG_2890

In the Business section, I’m going to be guiding you through exactly what you need to do to create an abundant, joyful business for the year ahead.

This is actually EXACTLY the plan I use in my own business to create a business plan for the year ahead.

It’s literally been worth millions for my company.

This kind of clarity is absolutely bloody ESSENTIAL.

IMG_2894

I’ll guide you through reviewing your current numbers (income, reach, best-selling products etc) in a really fun, simple way.

We have a part-time nanny now. It’s only taken us 4.5 years to realise we actually don’t need to do it all ourselves while going half nutty.

Anywaysies, she’s adorable, and she also owns her own business. I gave her a copy of the workbook and said:

Look, this will probably help.

The next day she said:

I was going through the workbook last night. And I actually wrote down the numbers like you suggested. And – wow – I’ve never done it before. It always seemed to hard. But it was so easy. And now I see everything so clearly!

The power of having clarity in your numbers is that you can work out what’s working, what’s not + where you can mine for even more abundance.

IMG_2895

In the Business section, you’ll be led to setting:

  • Business Mission Statement
  • Income goals
  • Profit goals
  • Social media goals
  • Work/life balance goals
  • Mastermind goals
  • Education goals
  • Customer goals

IMG_2896

SOME NEW WORKBOOK SECTIONS!

IMG_2901

By popular demand, I’ve also included a “What To Do When You Fall Off The Workbook Wagon” checklist.

And remember this post of mine This 1 Tip Can Put You In The Top 1% of Achievers?

Basically, I espoused on the statistics of what goal-setting-and-reviewing habits maketh a woman manifest.

Basically, the top 1% of achievers are those who:

  • think of goals
  • write them down
  • and REGULARLY REVIEW THEM.

The workbook takes care of the first two.

And now it helps you take care of the last one too!

IMG_2904

I created monthly check-in sheets for each month so you can schedule it in your calendar to fill them out at the end of each month to keep you on track with your goals. They are, in a word, FREAKING THE BOMB DOT COM!

IMG_2906

And a new Notes section so you can write to do lists, journal + keep all your 2015 musings in one spot!

In interrupt this post with some “Leonie got distracted and started taking photos of her studio” pictures.

I’m sure you understand.

IMG_2857

IMG_2843

And a sign I’ve got ready to go for the Cairns Business Women’s Club lunch on Friday. How exciting! (If you’re there… let’s play! Talk shit! Be silly buggas!)

IMG_2856

Also: for those who know me and my barefooted ways… and the fact I don’t own any shoes apart from a couple of pairs of flip flops…

YES I DID BUY SHOES TO WEAR TO THIS DOOHICKEY ON FRIDAY.

I bought… sparkly flip flops.

Fully upmarket laydeeee!

IMG_2850

You can tell who lives in and loves this studio.

A rainbow-watercolour-splashing angel-loving hippy.

Aaaaand we’re back!

IMG_2837

This year, the printed workbook comes with a FREE A2 sized year wall planner too! SQUEE!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

IMG_2842 copy

Each month, it lets you fill out your income goals, happiness goals and three most important goals for the months.

Will totes super keep you on track. Hooray!

IMG_2834

I’m fully in love with this lovebeam and am SO HAPPY we got to create it for you as a bonus for the printed workbook this year!

artiste

I am SO infinitely grateful that these workbooks fell into my creative lap six years ago.

Through and through they have changed my life and business, my happiness, income, friendships + relationships… it’s been a deep and dear blessing to feel so much on purpose because of this process of dream-creating and dream-making.

I know the difference these bookywookies make because I’ve seen it in my life… and the now 40 000 women who’ve used them (and turned into rabid fans… I’m just as much a fangirl too..)

How would the world change if every woman in it knew her dreams were possible and doable?

Through and through. That’s how it would.

It would be a better place for our dreams come true.

It would be a miracle.

Questions about the workbooks?

Just email us lovies — support@leoniedawson.com.

Just a reminder – printed workbook supplies for 2015 are limited. Once they run out, we won’t be printing again.

So grab your copy sooner rather than later, babearoonie. And grab a few for soulsister Chrissie presents too.

Giving the gift of dreamscometrue is SO 2015!

To your impossibly brilliant 2015,

we are here

Oh.em.gee.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for…. with baited breath… longing in our loins… fervent pens at our ready… hee hee hee…

The 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life and Biz workbooks are AT LAST available to order!!!

This is our SIXTH year in producing these wildly popular + powerful goals workbooks.

This year is definitely our biggest and best yet… they’ve been added to… and we’ve taken all your advice/dreams/hopes/wishes and created a beautiful big spiral bound printed book edition that comes with a free A2 wall planner as well!!!!!

2015v2-testimonial-bubbles

The 40 000 women who’ve used these workbooks over the last six years have had some freaking MASSIVE results. I know so many women absolutely swear by them.

Now let me say this: there are a LOT of copycat workbooks/planners out there on the market. You’re most welcome to try them out… but the feedback I’ve received from the many women who have is that they always end up returning back to my workbook because it’s the one that gets the most results.

AVAILABLE IN SCRUMPTIOUS PRINTED BOOKS OR EBOOKS!

Last year I created our first physical print book of the workbook since that was such a popular demand.

It was massively successful and became an Amazon bestseller.

This year, I wanted to make it even bigger and better than what we could produce going through Amazon.

We worked with a printing company in Malaysia instead to produce gorgeous, thick, full-colour spiral bound workbooks that come with a free A2 wall planner for the year. (I will share more about this in a future blog post if you’re interested!)

I’ve tried to make it as affordable as possible for you, and we’ve got books in mailing houses in THREE countries to try and make postage as affordable (& fast) for you as possible.

You can check it all out here.

You can also grab an ebook and either print out on your own or fill out on your computer or iPad (we’ll give you the instructions on how to do it!).

BUY AS CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

gift option 2

You can also buy print or electronic workbooks for Chrissy presents too – these end up being super popular for peeps to give to sisters, soul sisters, friends + clients.

We just had a best-selling author buy 50 of them to give to her staff & coaches which is bloody amazing!

EFFING HUGE AFFILIATE COMPETITION!

We also have our BIGGEST affiliate competition EVA happening! Over $12 000 in prizes!!!!!! Squeeee and wahooodle-ooooo!

Basically, I’m proud as fucking punch.

And a little bit tired.

This has been the biggest project we’ve ever pulled off.

And I can’t be happier with the end result!

May it make 2015 your most brilliant year yet in life + business!

love, love, love

P.S. Just as an FYI: Once the printed books are all sold, I’m not able to re-order them. Once they are gone, they are gone. So if you want one for you and/or to buy for friends or family as a perfect Christmas gift, grab them now.

Hola potatoes,

If you’re an Academy member, you’ll know that the business advice that comes out of my mouth the most is:

Implement
Implement
Implement.

Aka: Do your shit. Do the important stuff. Do what will grow your company. Do it now.

Invest in education but most importantly IMPLEMENT it. And implement it some more.

Education doesn’t do shit if you don’t do something with it.

Just buying education doesn’t grow your biz.

Sorry. I know that you want the magic button of ZING, and it all fixes your business.

Sorry. It’s YOU that’s the key here. YOU that will turn it from knowledge into gold.

Take action notes. Decide exactly what needs to happen. And make it happen.

Don’t dilly dally. Don’t fuck around. Don’t spend all your time on social media.

Do the important shit.

It is these purposeful, intentional steps that make a dream business (and a dream life) grow.

To remind ya, I made ya these desktop wallpapers, an ipod wallpaper and a printable poster.

Rainbow to adorn the space you in.

And keep you on track.

marryingmyself

It’s the eve of my birthday.

The perfect time to write this, and share this with you.

Some years ago, I married myself.

Yup, it’s true.

vintage_polaroid_frame_by_doct

I was in the most beautiful, sacred women’s circle… that circle was really the place where everything began for me. It felt like coming home. Instant soul’s home. And I knew I’d continue doing this kind of women’s work for the rest of my life.

Anyways, as part of this circle, I was introduced to the concept of inner marriage.

How we really need to choose to love, honour + cherish ourselves before we commit to doing the same for another.

It made perfect sense to me. Even though I had already found my love, I wanted to marry me before I married him.

So I proposed to myself inwardly. I accepted. We set the date.

I invited my dear sister-of-heart-and-spirit Deb to officiate the ceremony. I invited women I knew off the internet to be goddesses of honour – one of whom ended up becoming my best mate. It was best-mate-at-first-sight.

We went up into the mountains under a huge beautiful rock.

And there I said the words that have gone on to shape the rest of my life:

Leonie, I love you.

I choose to cherish you for the rest of my days.

I choose to honour you, and be your best friend.

Can you imagine what it is like to speak these words to your own self?

It’s the greatest relief. The love and approval you’ve been looking for all along.

*

Summer McStravick wanted me to speak about my inner marriage during her Shakti Summit 2014.

It ended up being this deeply moving hour of sharing, woman stories, self love + body acceptance.

When we recorded this, my grandmother was dying. We spoke about my grandmother, and I spoke a prayer for her body that had carried her through so many adventures and journeys in her 97 years on the planet.

When I hung up the phone, both Summer and I were teary from what had transpired.

The phone rang moments later.

It was my Dad.

My grandmother had passed over.

*

And so I offer this recording to you.

About a woman who learned to love herself first.

About a grandmother who was heading home.

*

You can listen by pressing play using the above player or click to download here.

With oodles of love + galoshes of joy,

P.S. Happy birthday to me.

Leonie, I still love you. You’re my best friend. I thank Great Spirit every day that we get to be us on this beautiful journey of life.

Thank you for sticking with me even in the hard parts.

Thank you for being fucking hilarious and making me laugh.

Thank you for always knowing to listen to the voice of Spirit inside you.

Life… it’s the best adventure yet with you.

how to reinvent your business

Hola treasures,

A rad question answered for you today.

I suspect it’s something you’ve contemplated.

How on earth can we reinvent our businesses without losing clients?

As passionate, inspired, enthusiastic, creative women… we grow, evolve and learn new things.

Parts that used to fit us no longer do. The old way of doing business no longer appeals to us.

We feel called to something new.

A business reinvention.

How do we do it without dropping the momentum we’ve already gained?

To be more specific, the gorgeous Jacqueline asks:

So, my question has to do with reinvention. I took a long time to find my voice, to find out that thing I’m here to do that I do better than anybody else in the whole wide world. So, now that I’ve found it, my question is, how did you bring your tribe along with you as you unfold something new? Because obviously I’m the one evolving, and I’ve watched you do it, and I just wondered your thought process. Because you went from Goddess Guidebook to Leonie Dawson, and you’ve evolved and you’ve brought your whole tribe with you, and I really do want to do that. Is there a way to make it more gentle?

There absolutely is a way to make the process more gentle.

I should know.

I’m like the Madonna of website reinventions.

Well not exactly that, but in ten years, there absolooodely has been a heck of a lot of change.

For those who haven’t been around the Leonie world for as long as Jacqueline has, I’ve had many iterations of my business, my website name and even my personal name.

  • I’ve gone from turquoisejourney.blogspot.com to leonielife.com to goddessguidebook.com to goddessleonie.com to leoniedawson.com.
  • I’ve definitely grown and evolved, and as it’s happened, my offerings have grown and evolved over the last ten years of blogging and of creating a business.
  • I used to do only meditation, creativity, spirituality stuff and now I talk about business and marketing as well.
  • I used to offer programs that I no longer do.
  • I’ve rebranded offerings.
  • I’ve changed and my business has changed.

And I’ve managed to do it whilst continuing to grow my business and my mailing list.

So here’s the process I recommend of how to make the change and reinvent your business without losing all your gorgeous clients.

step1

The first step is this one – and it’s a really important one – make sure you freak the fuck out about it.

Think through all your biggest fears:

 “Oh God, I’m just going to wreck my business.”

“Everybody is going to hate me me.”

“I don’t understand why I’m doing this and why I have to grow, and I should just stay the exact same because I’ve had some success with this, and I’m terrified of having to build up again. I’m terrified of having to change my whole business model.”

It’s really important to recognise that fear does come up, and it’s okay and it’s a totally natural and normal part of that process. Everybody freaks the fuck out to begin with when deciding to grow and change and make that transformation in their business.

step2

My next stage is for you to become at peace with it first before you share it.

Don’t share it before you feel solid with your plan and know the way.

This is something that I see other people do from time to time – they say “Okay, I’m changing my business,” but they’re bringing their fear and their excess energy along with it, and people react off that. And then of course it hits your buttons and then it’s hitting the tribe’s buttons and it just creates this big, energetic kaboom and it’s not super pleasant and it can be a little bit traumatic for people, and it can be traumatic for you.

So what I would suggest doing is, using whatever tools that you like to use to get clear with yourself.

Here’s some ways to get that clarity + groundedness within yourself:

  • Journalling
  • Meditation
  • Talk it through with your support team to get their support
  • A trusted business or life coach
  • Your favourite energy healer/counsellor – I always use Hiro Boga
  • Kinesiology can be incredibly helpful (Kerry Rowett is wonderful)

You need to have your tools and support people that you can turn to in these situations. So whenever you are stuck or in need, you know exactly what to pluck from your toolbelt. Look for support in the right places. We don’t need to stay stuck forever. We’re meant to help each other along on this journey!

So use those tools until you feel so strong and clear in your energy about what you’re doing next and why you are doing it.

You need to be their loving, present, unshakeable guide and leader through this change process. You need to be able to not get triggered yourself and just know what it is you want to do, and know that you’re going to be able to do it.

Get super clear and at peace and really confident and strong in your direction before you start sharing it with your tribe.

So, a quick recap: First stage: freak the fuck out, Second stage: get really clear with your stuff and feel really good and clear about it yourself.

step3

So the next stage would then start sharing the next vision with your tribe.

If you’re going to do a business name change, if you’re going to do a whole change of direction, you can put up a great blog post, sharing exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, and of course share it with your mailing list, share it with your social media tribe, and try and answers peoples’ questions as much as you can to give them that feeling of safety.

Be clear about what it means for them and what it DOESN’T mean for them.

Tell them what will stay the same. Tell them exactly what will change.

This will help them allay any fears or calamities and come with you on that journey.

You don’t even have to have a huge coming-out ceremony of what you’re doing next. You can just start incorporating that into your free content – whether it’s your blog, social media, free seminars -start weaving in the new messages of what you’re going to share.

Once you’ve created some groundswell, you can create new offerings about what you want to do next.

step4

Not every single person who’s followed you up until now will resonate with the next direction of your business, and that’s okay.

Just trust that they’re going to find the teacher that they’re wanting with somebody else then.

I regard it as the 10%. Whenever I make a change, I will lose 10% of my tribe. 10% won’t resonate. 90% will, but 10% won’t. And that’s absolutely okay.

And the way that I’ve seen it is that, I cannot stay the same person that I was ten years ago. It is 100% impossible.

Of course, there are people out there who really wish that I could be the same person I was ten years ago, and I’m just not. I’ve had ten years of experience and journeys and I’ve been learning so much about business and getting so passionate about all these different things, and of course wanting to share it with the world. So I can’t stop myself from that natural evolution.

So I accept that I will change. That most of my tribe will resonate with the change and some won’t.

And be totally at peace with losing the 10% (FWIW: The actual number might be less or more than 10%. That’s just how I see it in my head.)

step5

Honestly, a major change in my life came when I chose to surround myself with passionate, spirited women who were entrepreneurs as well.

Because when I came up against the hard stuff, I could go to them. Share what was in my heart.

And hear the answers:

Yes, this is normal.

I’ve been through this too.

It’s going to be okay.

 

step6

Please know that no one can keep doing the exact same thing and saying the exact same thing as they did five or ten years ago. It’s totally unrealistic to expect that of ourselves and others.

The whole point of being on this earth is to grow and find new passions and learn even more about ourselves and this beautiful spinning globe we call home.

It’s okay to change. In fact, it’s exactly how it should be.

I’m sending you love through your transformation

Transforming your business and soul purpose into its next evolution can be as scary as all get out.

I know. I’ve been there. Had that panic attack. Written that cranky journal message of “GOD, WHY THE EFF DO YOU WANT ME TO CHANGE? IT’S TOO HARD!”

But as in the sentiment of Anais Nin, to not bloom would be the greatest ache of all.

So you gather up your courage. You set your vision.

You squeeze through the eye of the needle, and you come out the other side.

And ahhhh, there it is.

The new land you glimpsed from your rocking boat.

The one that fits your skin even better than before.

This is who you are now.

This is who you are meant to be.

Everything is on its right path.

All my love to you through the rolling waves of change,
