I was trying to come up with some catchy phrases to make you hungry to sign up for my program Uncork Your Creativity.
Not only did I want these phrases to be catchy, but they had to be Creative, too.
I mean: you can’t sell something you’re not good at – no, excel at – yourself.
Or so my inner critic told me.
So I told it to shut the fuck up.
And I thought:
What if, instead of trying to come up with some smooth and salesy sentences, I come up with a couple of lame ones instead?
That instantly lit me up.
In about 30 seconds or so, I scribbled down these lines:
- It’s not the worst program I ever made.
- Join me! Or not. Whatever.
- There are worse things you can do with your time than participate in this program.
- It’s tax deductable. That’s the best I can say about it.
- It’s short. If you hate it, it’ll be over soon.
- And: It’s more fun than a rectal exam.
I had so much fun with this!
And I thought: let’s actually use it.
Let’s turn this into a blog, and an email, and use it to promote the program.
Sure, people can like it or hate it or couldn’t care less.
But that can happen to ANYTHING I write, say or do.
I have NO control whatsoever over how YOU receive it and what YOU think of it.
So why bother thinking about that all?
If there’s ONE thing that kills creativity, flow, joy, freedom, dreams, and EVERYTHING that makes you and your business different and stand out, it’s fear of criticism or what others might think of you.
But why even care?
What other people think of you is not YOUR business: it’s THEIRS.*
So play, have fun, and uncork YOUR creativity FULL OUT, too!
It lights up your mood AND your business!

* This is one aspect of the mindset and beingness of embracing, reclaiming and unleashing your creativity.
You learn all about that in the Creative Mindset Masterclass.
You can learn to strengthen & train your creativity (which you do in this program).
But if you don’t USE the ideas and inspiration you get, there’s not much point in training your creativity to begin with.
That’s why I’ve included this masterclass.
And creative prompts that invite you to implement the ideas you get.
So you have more fun AND set yourself apart from others in your field.
