Update: A Week of Hard Work and¬†Progress ūüôā

It Wasn’t An Easy¬†Week

Why do I feel things can magically change overnight?

This is My Promised Update:

(In case you you don’t know what I am updating head here first)

Here is what I am doing  now with getting my brand sorted out to be fully productive and very profitable.This week has been very productive. Having a clear focus each day  and meeting with my accountability partner has been great.  He can see when I am slipping back onto my previous path, where I end up going in 10 different directions and little is achieved.

I am working through the¬†marketing and branding course and have a video or two to watch each day and then homework to do 5 days a week. Then it’s time to share in the¬†group before I¬†go to sleep.

“It’s hard work”, I have heard myself saying¬†several times this week. ¬†But some of the program¬†has been fun, especially¬†playing¬†with the graphics. I love the graphical challenges of branding. I got to work on a new logo.

Here is a peek at  the new Suzie Cheel  logo.


Some Things Take Time

I realised that subconsciously  I thought that I could make money quickly with this program. Reality: I am laying the foundation for longer term success.  I went back to my accountability partner. I realised I had to focus now on generating income as a priority, while still doing the branding course,

We created a 5 step process for generating income now.. This is framed as 5 questions that need to be answered.

  1. What am I going to sell next week?   (Make a list of all the possibilities)
  2. Where am I going to sell?
  3. What can I do to promote?
  4. How much do I plan to make?
  5. Am I ready now?

I like this because it is simple

Here are my responses

  1.  My list for what I have to sell: : Heart Whisper Oracle Cards, Paintings, Print on Demand items, silk scarves, art quilts, Heart Whisper Readings. Clarity Coaching, my updated book Emergings: A meditation on the emotions of change- note to self read, you wrote this at a time of transition.
  2. What I am going to sell:On my website, on facebook, set up my art shopify site, Red Bubble and promote. email my list, Special on readings.
  3. Where will I promote: Facebook Ads, Periscope, Blab, Pinterest, Instagram
  4. How much? $1000
  5. Am I ready now? NO

So yes I now have refine this plan and tease out the details.

I will need to check in with my Heart Whispers as i plan to ensure I keep going.This was the card I drew today and one of my words for 2016


Would you like to play?

 Maybe you would like to try this process and share how it works for you.

all my love

  1. Your logo is very colorful and cheerful ūüôā I bet that is your personality coming out.

    I like the 5 focusing questions. Our mind will always provide answers to the questions we’ll present to it, and when they are aligned with our desires there is a better chance we’ll take the necessary action to take us where we wish to go.

  10. Thanks for sharing this insight into your journey Suzie. Your honesty is helpful for the rest of us also on entrepreneurial journeys, that we often face similar challenges <3

  11. What a wonderful space you are occupying Suzie, determined, forcused and still allowing time for creativity to blossom. And your new logo is awesome – bright and shiny – a true representation of you and your gifts. ūüôā

    1. Thank you Elle, right now I am am finding it very challenging s I know there is more letting go to do ūüôā Thanks for your wonderful comment about my logo. I feel this is reflecting who I am becoming. Sometimes I wish i had fewer gifts- not really, just would be simpler.

  12. Love your new logo, Suzie! Lots of energy and vibrancy. It takes patience but laying the groundwork and having a plan will make all the difference. You’ll know why you’re spending the right time on certain activities and also what to eliminate becasue it doesn’t fit your plan. You’ll get there!

  14. Amazing new logo, Suzie! And I love the tweet-able headings in your blog! GREAT idea! I’ve tweeted and pinned.

    This business of up-leveling our business requires patience with ourselves, persistence and dedication to keep moving forward and upward and a belief that it will all be so worth it when we get to the next level! I’m on the same journey, Suzie … we’re “journey-mates” <3

    1. Hi Maria
      Thanks great to read your comment on my logo. Yes Click to tweet is a good plugin. Love that we are Journey-Mates. Look forward to see your uplevel. yes patience is a great virtue xxoo

  15. Gorgeous new logo, Suzie! We’re on similar paths once again, sister. Glad to know I’m not alone fanning the flames of a rebrand. My logo is done! Naming is concepted. Now to get some writing done ‚ÄĒ embracing the words for a new Home and About pages first.

    Scary, but I’m so comforted with my decision to write less less less! Which, now that I think of it, might not in fact be any easier. But I’m going to stick with the idea that it will be effortless!


    1. Thanks Sue, yes this is going to be the rebrand that stays with me for many years-I have changed to often on a whim- this is going to be a solid change that i wont be changing again . This week I start on the new copy. I think seeing it as effortless is important Love suzie xxoo

  16. Wow, I’m impressed with your dedication Suzie! And, you are so right, it IS not only hard work, it’s oh so easy to slip back into old patterns. I noticed one myself just yesterday. I launched a small collection of motivational products a couple of months ago. But I didn’t have time to work on the designs the way I wanted to so the store is still operational but I stopped advertising it on my site until I could “perfect” the designs. Well of course, busy, busy me hasn’t even looked at them but here’s what I noticed yesterday – they are selling without me doing anything which is a miracle considering no advertising or promotion and a gazillion other products on the same site! And that’s when it hit me, I’ve allowed that perfectionist tendency to slip in the backdoor once again! It’s a process isn’t it? Thanks so much for sharing your journey and inspiration. ūüôā

    1. Marty Yes i relate closely to what you are saying, and it has been really good on the breakthroughs and clarity that has come through the hard work. it is amazing how we think it has to be perfect for us to move forward. Yes it is a process. Good luck with getting those products. Where is your store? xxoo
