Here's your training!


3 tools to rock your marketing
(​and drop any of those pesky ​i can barely stand it ​thoughts!)


Wait, there's more...

If you recognized yourself, popped a new awareness or just plain ole' loved this training THEN KEEP READING. Learn a little known way to keep going toward your marketing success.

If this sounds familiar

  • ​You know you need to ​get the word out about your services but you often have push through resist​ance or distraction to get your marketing done
  • ​You'd give anything to have a marketing fairy appear to do your marketing for you, or better yet, just have clients show up at your door with no effort on your part
  • ​You're holding yourself back somewhere in your business because you have doubt, dread or the "I'm not sure how" feelings come up

Then you know how overwhelming marketing can feel and how hard it ​can be to find a way to market that ​both fits and works for you. 


I'm tired of hearing ​amazing small business owners like you, feeling overwhelmed and fed up with the business of marketing, thanks to:
  • ​​Hyped up marketing programs by 7 figure business gurus who promise you ​similar results if you just ​do it ​in the exact same way they did…
  • ​Thousands of search results for how to’s and tutorials on what to do in your marketing that don’t consider your unique situation​...
  • ​​Overpriced consultants and courses that don’t end up working because they don’t address your reluctance to implement the pieces...

Now you can let all that go...

Introducing the Reluctant Marker Wisdom Academy

The only marketing training ​that addresses and solves the root of ​icky, overly hyped marketing and how you can do it differently.

It's marketing that fixes our relationship with marketing!

​It’s packed with ​practical training, coaching, and resources on all aspects of ​marketing​ ​and getting visible.

PLUS ​it has the community support you need to ​activate you to your full potential.

The Reluctant Marketer ​WISDOM Academy will help you:

Change your relationship with marketing from one of distaste or reluctance to total love so you can ​enjoy spreading the word so you can share your gifts.

​​Make marketing a profound act of service that you love, makes the world a better place—not fills it with hype—​and helps you call in the perfect type of client.

Learn practical techniques and marketing approaches that are as unique as you are so they fit your business, your lifestyle, and your values.


Truthfully, marketing is not a one size fits all type of thing. So this academy can't be correct for everyone. Let's figure that out before you join, ok? I want you to be delighted with your decision so here are a few factors to consider:

It's​ FOR YOU if:

  • ​You are a heart based business person who wants to grow your business in ways that feel authentic, honest and joyful and you're willing to take action to do so.
  • ​You have a business, or are starting one, and you've hit a few places where you are reluctant to get bigger or take action, even though you know that taking action would be correct.
  • ​Your business is going along fine and you're ready to add in a new service or product but keep putting it off, or getting distracted. 
  • ​You're tired of always going it alone and suspect that if you found the right community and support that your business could be so much easier. You're excited about this being the one and willing to contribute in order to belong. 
  • ​You know growing your business takes work and your willing to do it, you're just not always sure just "how" to do it.

It's ​not a fit if:

  • ​​You're hoping for an overnight fix, or that it will magically happen "to" you rather than you putting in some effort​ to really transform and grow yourself.
  • ​​You ​love shiny objects!! And just know that the next thing you find will be the one. This is part of your resistance—to keep searching. If you're not willing to do the work to let the reluctance go, this is not the group for you.
  • You are looking to jump into a new community and dig around to find new clients, spam others or talk ​incessantly about your product or service.
  • ​​You ​are s​keptical about spirituality, self growth or any woo-woo as a way to bring your whole self to your business​ because ​it's not your thing.
  • ​You get stuck in ​looking at what's not working and why it's not working for you. You're not willing to believe that it's up to you to grow yourself and your business. 

I'm not trying to talk you OUT of joining, I'm trying to talk the RIGHT people in. Building a community of like minded people to support each other in growth takes total transparency about what we want and don't on our journeys. Be honest, if this doesn't call to you—don't do it. But if it does...I'll see ya on the inside. Mwah!
