What Can You Really Control In Your Marketing?

What Can You Really Control In Your Marketing? by Jill CelesteLet’s admit it: Entrepreneurs are control freaks and, as a result, want to control everything when it comes to their businesses and marketing.

Hey, I get it, because I’m a “control enthusiast” too.

I love to be in control! Being in control feels like I can dictate the outcomes.

Truth be told, though, it’s just a perception, isn’t it?

I mean – are we really in control of every aspect of our marketing?

No. We are not in control of everything in marketing.

When you realize this, it should help you loosen your grip and feel better about your marketing results. Chances are, you are worried about things you have no control over.

Please keep reading to learn more about what you’re really controlling in your marketing – and how to lean into what you can control (truly).

The Book Writing Challenge starts January 1, 2019, in The Celestial Circle.Hi, everyone!

During The Book Writing Challenge, you will commit to writing your book for at least 15 minutes a day, five days a week, throughout the month of January.

While it would be best to work on a book, if that’s not in the cards for you, you may also work on other content during your 15 minutes, including extra blog posts, lead magnets, or web copy.

You may be wondering why I want you to write a book. It’s because books are the ultimate business card! Look at all the ways a book will help your marketing:

  • Provides amazing credibility
  • Helps you find clients
  • Allows you to share your expertise
  • Be more visible
  • Adds to your email list
  • Can be repurposed
  • Takes you out of your comfort zone
  • Helps you change the world, one page at a time

Imagine how awesome you’ll feel after getting your first draft of your book done. It’s possible! We will help each other through The Celestial Circle.

Celestial Changemakers Course

Female entrepreneurs, it’s time to raise our voices.

Why? Because this our current reality:

Women are expected to be quiet, polite, and differential.

Women are expected to look amazingly perfect – all while putting on a façade of a perfect life, marriage, home, and children.

Women are not supposed to be troublemakers. We are not supposed to create conflict and rock the boat.

(And when we do, we’re called bitches…or worse).

Women are supposed to love our children but not try to change the world for them.

Our society does not trust women – from making decisions about what’s best for our bodies to not believing us when we accuse men of rape or sexual harassment.

Women are supposed to be small – physically, mentally, and emotionally – and not take up space.

It’s time for this to end.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of it.

It’s time for female entrepreneurs to lead the charge – to raise our voices and to have a bigger presence – and use our platforms and businesses to make the world a better place for all humans (for generations to come).

You see, female entrepreneur, we are leaders. We are changemakers. We are here – not to be silent – but to be a strong voice and to advocate for a better world.

Our world is at a crossroads. We can stay on our current path filled with sexism, racism, xenophobia, climate change denial, voter suppression, and other injustices. Or we can take a new path – one of love, compassion, human rights, equal rights, and green policies.

I vote for the new path. How about you?

You see: Female entrepreneurs can be the shepherds who bring this world to love, enlightenment, justice, and equality.

Female entrepreneurs can be the shepherds who bring this world to love, enlightenment, justice, and equality. - Jill Celeste

It just starts with saying yes. Bravely. Continue reading

11 Quotes To Help You Feel More Abundant

11 Quotes To Help You Feel More Abundant by Jill CelesteFor your marketing to work, you must feel abundant and not come from a place of scarcity. It may seem strange to consider an abundance mindset from a marketing perspective, but yes, marketing and abundance go together!

When you feel abundant, you are more confident in what you’re marketing. You’re bolder with your marketing messages. You detach from the outcome. And you come from a place of service.

Oh yes, feeling more abundant has everything to do with marketing.

I get it, though. Some days don’t feel very abundant. A client might be late paying an invoice, or your car needs an unexpected repair. When you’re feeling less-than-abundant, it’s time to reach for inspiration.

That’s where today’s blog post comes in…

I have to admit: I am a bit obsessed with inspirational quotes about money, wealth, and abundance. I post about these themes all the time on my Instagram account.

I thought: What better to share with my tribe than 11 of my favorite abundance quotes?

I hope each quote makes you feel abundant – and eager to shine your light and change the world. Continue reading
