Burnt out, disillusioned by the online space, and feeling out of alignment – this was me, two years ago.
And so, I set out to change the way I was being of service in this world (and ICYMI, Moxie has undergone some pretty big changes this past little while because of it!)
From being a traditional ethical marketing agency to now merging marketing support with coaching…
Moxie has shifted from only helping nonprofits and small businesses do the ‘external work’ – like updating their branding and creating marketing plans – to helping them to also do the ‘internal work’ – like looking at their mindset, values, self belief and intuition.
Why this merging of these two worlds?
- Personally, it feels far more fulfilling for me to work in this way and
- I truly believe and have seen, time and again, that when leaders tend to their inner world, the outcomes of their business’s/non profit’s efforts skyrocket and the path to getting there feels more aligned and enjoyable too.
After following my gut and becoming a Certified Professional Coach and Transformational Embodiment Facilitator with CoachingEvolved, and experiencing firsthand the profound impact of the techniques on myself and my work, I knew that it was the right path forward for me and Moxie’s future clients.
The online space is an extremely noisy one that is filled with an overwhelming amount of ‘shoulds’…
And it’s only when we step outside of our work and go within ourselves (through a modality like coaching) that our truths, creative and innovative ideas and new perspectives are given the space to be heard.
I’m no longer willing to work in a way that doesn’t completely light me up and excite me, and I’m deeply devoted, in this stage of Moxie’s life, to making sure that other leaders don’t expend an iota of their time working in that way either.
Yes, changing up how you’re doing things can feel extremely uncomfortable and scary (letting go of my staff and my proud identity as one of the 1% of creative agencies run by women were not decisions I made lightly!)…
BUT I don’t believe that working should burn us out and impact our health and happiness.
So in saying all this, let this be your permission slip:
- To let go of how you think things ‘should’ be done in your nonprofit/small business.
- To value how you feel on the inside, as much as how things are ‘performing’ in your nonprofit/small business on the outside.
- To change things up and pivot in your work whenever you feel called to – even if past ways of doing things have made sense or been successful.
- To follow your truth and trust what your intuition tells you.
