Love What you Do – How to create a lucrative Biz as a healer, spiritual adviser, artist, coach, or therapist with Margherita Crystal Lotus

Love what you doThe mission of most Healers and Intuitive facilitators see marketing and selling as a side activity.  This was me 25 years ago. I just do the work and people will come. That did not work, and if I did not have the background in the corporate world, I would probably not know what and how to operate and market my products and services. I  stated out my first modest Biz in the year 1991. Now 24th year later I am still here! In this episode #83 of Hangout on Connections, I will share my stories of tribulations and successes that brought me where I am today.

The Solo Entrepreneur’s journey through Stress and Success with Andrea Beltrami (by Margherita Crystal Lotus)

lmdaDobH (1)In this 76th episode of Connections Forum, we will explore what a Soloprener’s journey is about. It looks so easy to see the successes but to uncover the different steps taken to that success is most often hidden. Come see for yourself if you are a soloprenour wanting more business success. Andera or Dre, is a Visual Strategist & Branding Stylist for Solopreneurs.
This episode airs on Thursday July 16 at 2 pm EST:

About Andrea:

Hey my name’s Dre and I’m a full time visual strategist & designer!  I’m a graduate of the school of life, with a minor in lofty dreams and a major in dysfunctional independence.  I’ve learned most of what I know through an arduous process known as ‘learning the hard way’ (I bet you’re an alumni too, huh?!)I use all of the above to help solopreneurs create a vision for their voice.

“I help them create visual content that conveys their passion, purpose, personality and voice.  I love helping newbies, solopreneurs and small business entrepreneurs at my blog: The Branded Solopreneur, where I deliver content focused on strategies, tips, resources and tools for branding, design and visual marketing mastery.”

I’m all about building relationships, starting meaningful (and entertaining) conversations and connecting with other salt of the earth types that share my love of humor and entrepreneurial ventures. I believe magic can happen over a virtual happy hour (bottoms up!) and I haven’t found a better place than G+ to do just that!

Tough Love Time: These days people have a disjointed sense of why branding and visual marketing is so important, so I feel obliged to set the record straight! Here’s the thing…if your brand is instantly recognizable you won’t need to create all that noise on social media.

Best Advice:

The best advice I can give you to get you started is to 1.) Define your branding guidelines to create a consistency and cohesiveness in your content 2.) tackle one social platform at a time 3.) invest your time in learning the idiosyncrasies of that platform 4.) consistently create and engage in meaningful and valuable conversations AND 5.) personalize your content to that platform.  If you follow this recipe you’ll be amazed at how quick you gain traction!

Let me break it down: 90% of the information our brains process is visual.  Soooo, it’s no surprise that online success REALLY boils down to…a pause. You need to move people in a way that intrigues them enough to want to learn more. You need to be that moment that catches their attention. That “thing” they stop long enough to take notice of. And what is it that’s causing them to pause?

You guessed it, visual content! Circle me and become a member of the Solopreneur Society to get a free copy of ‘A Solopreneur’s Quick & Dirty Guide To Branding’, along with tips on how to create wildly successful visual content and learn how to leverage that content to propel your brand recognition and success online. Your success will thank you for it.

If your suffering from ‘holy cr*p this branding shiz is over-friggin-whelming’…I’ve got the medicine to cure even the most wicked case. Enter…my one-on-one Branding Mentorship!

imagesHere’s the skinny: It’s one-on-one time with me as we take a deep dive into your brand. The end result is a list of EXACTLY what you need to do to propel your brand into instantly recognizable status. Another words, getting my ninjaesque branding eyeballs all over your stuff, resulting in a crystal clear action plan you can follow. Can you say, brand propelling mode ACTIVATED?!

And if you’re looking for a hand holding course to walk you through how to build your brand, I’d highly encourage you to signup for the waiting list {those folks are getting first dibs, insanely discounted pricing and a super awesome bonus} for my upcoming course, Badass Branding For Solopreneurs. That will be coming in soon, so stay tuned. Enough about me!  While I throw a cocktail down the hatch I’d love to hear about you… how can I help?

Music as a business! Learn from Carlos del Junco professional Harmonica Player & Teacher

How musicians can make a living from their music and teaching.

Wasaga Beach NICK_HARDING uncompressedIn this episode #67 of Connections Forum we will discuss what particular differences and similarities they have with other artists, solopreneurs or entrepreneurs.

“Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it’s either retire the category or rephrase the question to ‘Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos’ ” (Dugg Simpson, past Artistic Director Vancouver Folks festival). As a teacher, Carlos brings his expertise to all level of students. Carlos has taught many harmonica workshops worldwide and continues to develop a close and caring relationship with his one on one students to help them be the best they can be. According to Carlos, it is all about “Focused, Engaged and Intentional Music Practice” We are broadcasting this episode on May 14, 2015 at 1.30 pm EST.

About Connections Forum
*CONNECTIONS Forum offers interviews and talks about the most important areas of our life, such as: Handling Intimate Relations, Nurture Conscious Awareness, and Expressing who you are, … and also how to continue your Personal Healing process. The Purpose of our shows is to inspire, and teach you skills for dealing with the mental-emotional upheavals that happens to anybody from time to time.

More details about Carlos del Junco

To say he plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every colour in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.

Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”, they could just as well be called “The Jazz Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, jazz swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.
