When I pretended

When I pretended

Shannon here with a HUGE EPIC FAIL.

It was a number of years ago when I started Speaking. And when you’re just starting out and have yet to see any “success” – you do what most people do starting out:


How did I “fake” it?

I had this ONE amazing Speaker in mind when I started out. And I just wanted to be HER.
I wanted to have her huge stages, massive income and Big Impact. So I tried to be like her.

And ya know what? It didn’t work!

After enough times falling on my face in front of those early audiences – I realized I can’t be someone else anymore.

I had this inspired idea that if I STOPPED trying to be like her and started to just be ME – it might be easier… and more FUN too! And ya know what?! EVERYTHING changed.

But I was just SO embarrassed of myself after things turned around. Especially now, with Mark at my side and we’re rocking a 7-figure Speaking business, LOVING our incredible Tribe – I am SO embarrassed how little I believed in myself then.

Let me know in the comments below:

Did you ever PRETEND and Regret it? How did you turn things around?

Your comment will inspire the Tribe – we’d LOVE to hear from you 🙂

Be wildly…YOURSELF

Be wildly…YOURSELF

Mark here with something… ROCKIN.

Forget your strategies. Ignore what you learned about “marketing”. Get rid of any piece of information you have about “Speaking” and commit to this mantra:


This is a HUGE reason Shannon and I feel we’ve been able to do what we’ve done in just 2 years. To go from 0-$400,000 in 10 months and within 2 years to have a 7-Figure business – has everything to do with us NOT being anyone else…but our wild selves.

It’s crucial you START with this. If you need, inject it into your veins. Because your Tribe wants YOU – no one else. No one’s message or personality to special gifts – they only want YOU.

And every part of YOU.

Your humor, your quirks, your energy, your spirit, yourSELF. Give YOURSELF more to the world, raw and wild as you are – and watch your Big Impact UNLEASH itself faster than you ever thought possible.

the 3 juicy secrets of REST

the 3 juicy secrets of REST

Shannon here with 3 JUICY secrets that make me melt:

I know you’re working really hard. I know how hard it feels sometimes, growing your own Conscious Business. Which is why it’s important you know one of the most important things of making your Big Impact:


  1. Take short naps in the afternoon when you need it
  2. Get 8-9 hours of sleep every night
  3. Don’t work on the weekends- take 2 days off/ week

You will feel so much better. You’ll start manifesting WAY MORE of your Big Impact. You’ll start earning more.

Because the path to massive action begins with being RESTED.

How Will YOU Put These 3 Secrets of REST to Use?

Use these 4 VOCAL TONES in your next Strategy Session

Use these 4 VOCAL TONES in your next Strategy Session

Mark here with a HOT way to rock your strategy sessions.

I’m sure you know, that especially on the phone – how you use your VOICE makes all the difference in the world.

If you sound “fearful” when you mention the price of your hot, juicy program – it will convey all the OPPOSITE emotions that lead your potential client to enroll.

So here are 4 Vocal Tones to use in your Strategy Sessions to ENROLL MORE CLIENTS:

  1. Happy Enthusiasm – this is the perfect way to START the call.
  2. Slow and Deep – when you want to really emphasize something, like a turning point in your personal story or have them feel the cost of “not” working with you – by speaking slowly and deeply, it causes them to focus better.
  3. Casual – when you’re asking questions about their challenges, desires and story that would otherwise feel potentially “intrusive” – they’ll feel more comfortable opening up to you.
  4. Shock and awe – when you talk about the results you’ve achieved, say it in awe and shock. This makes you feel more human and trustworthy – instead of possibly arrogant when talking about your rocking success.

Crazy CHALLENGE for you

– Start your own Meetup Group
– Follow up with potential clients

…write it all down and show it to your spouse/ partner/ lover.

Tell them that any day you don’t make progress in one of those areas – no touching. No hugging, kissing, touching – and definitely not sex.

But on the days you do make PROGRESS… watch out! You get EXTRA lovin!

They’ll get excited by the idea – and it will inspire the hell out of you to start taking more action as a Speaker.

when I got DIVORCED

when I got DIVORCED

Mark here with a vulnerable story about when I got divorced.

I want to share this with you for a deep reason. One of the most difficult parts of growing your conscious business is when you’re still starting out…and “life” gets in the way.

A painful situation in your life can make you feel it’s impossible to attract clients and grow your business. There’s too much pain to be able to take inspired action.

Which is exactly what happened to me.

Years ago, when I was in the midst of getting divorced – I felt the weight of the world on my shoulder. It was hard to get up early. It felt too heavy to put myself out there and speak. I felt like I had nothing to give – it was all just too much.

When you feel like that – it’s like an elephant sitting on your heart, and you can’t even breathe.

Which is exactly how I felt.

And then I discovered an amazing way to make that elephant feel like a feather:

By focusing on the IMPACT I was meant to have in this world. When you’re in such pain that it’s hard to breathe – that means that you’re also focused on the pain. The secret is to start focusing on your IMPACT. Your CONTRIBUTION. The DIFFERENCE you can make in OTHER PEOPLE’S lives.

When you envision your IMPACT, your body feels differently. Your breathing opens up, your blood rushes and you feel exciting, happy and alive.

Because it’s what you’re here on earth to do. Inspire the Tribe with your comment:

What happens to YOU when you focus on your Big Impact?

Perfection is your ENEMY


Perfection is your ENEMY

Shannon here with a deep secret to manifest your deepest calling as a Speaker.

The #1 enemy of your growth as a Speaker is seeking PERFECTION.

Burn this in your brain:


I know, a bit strong – but it’s time to make your Big Impact. And it won’t happen by striving for everything to be perfect:

The perfect Tribe
The perfect program
The perfect income

“The perfect…” is what’s preventing manifesting:

Your Tribe
Your signature program

Strive for DAILY PROGRESS. One step at a time, only focusing on progress (and not for things to be perfect) and you’ll see your Big Impact manifest faster than you ever thought possible.

The only reason you’re not making the MONEY what you want (yet)

The only reason you’re not making the MONEY what you want (yet)


Mark here with a sword of “money truth” for you today.

There were YEARS when I was NOT generating the revenue I wanted.
And I couldn’t figure it out.

Here I was with this big message and big dreams to make a Big Impact to my Tribe – so why was I still struggling to pay my bills?


It didn’t make sense.

Until I discovered something when Shannon and I first cracked 6 Figures…in just a few short months.

Before I met (my lovely amazing delicious sexy wonderful magical) Shannon, I was never clear on my VALUE. I was helping all kinds of people – but had never drilled down into my true niche and Tribe.

As soon as Shannon and I got started – our Tribe became clear to us. And our message even clearer. The moment we became crystal clear on WHO we’re here to serve – I instantly felt my ultimate value.

I was almost overcome with this deep sense of OWNERSHIP of my message. That Shannon and I were put here on earth for YOU.

The moment we became clear on our Tribe was the moment I raised my prices by 10 times. Why? Because I was clear on the massive value I brought to the table. I owned it – and we made $400,000 in our 1st 10 months of business.

I want you to know something:

The moment you become crystal clear on WHO you’re here to serve – and OWN your message to that Tribe – is the moment money becomes a non-issue. You simply OWN your message and what it’s worth.

It becomes easy and almost effortless to say, “Yes, my hot, juicy program is only $5,000”.

I want you to make the money you desire and deserve. Let me know in the comments:

How will you OWN your VALUE more this week?

How often do you have a Speak-GASM?


How often do you have a Speak-GASM?

Mark here to inspire the hell out of you to start speaking more.

Because the only thing you should focus on to grow your conscius business….is SPEAKING. And I KNOW how much fear you deal with about Speaking:

  • What if no one shows up?
  • What if I won’t get clients?
  • What if I forget what to say?

After working with 1000’s of clients – I know the BEST way to overcome your fears of speaking:

By having more Speak-GASMS.

Let me explain 😉

There’s a reason why you’re a Speaker. You LOVE sharing your message. You LOVE inspiring your Tribe on stage, live. You LOVE making your Big Impact simply by Speaking.
So how do you feel when you Speak? If you’re a true Speaker (and I know you are) then you get a Speak-GASM everytime you’re on stage.

From now on – never again focus on your fears of “What If’s” about Speaking. From now on – anytime a fear comes up – tell yourself:


It’s a bit ridiculous (and juicy) – but it will help you get out there in a bigger way. The Universe wants you to have more Speak-GASMS. Focus and follow your TURN ON and watch your Big Impact begin to manifest.

When I Was Absolutely Depressed


When I Was Absolutely Depressed


Shannon here with a story…how I felt absolutely depressed.

It was only a few years ago when I had to close my Detox Spa. Wow – I thought that was my future. I had been making solid money and having a lot of fun. 2008 hit and in just a few months had to close my cherished Detox Spa.

The thing though, is that I had been doing all kinds of things for work for a number of years. With the Spa, I thought I finally “landed” – and would never turn back.

You know that feeling like you’ve finally come home and you settle in and you think everything will just be smooth sailing from now on? That the “hard part” is behind you? That’s exactly how I felt about the Spa.

Then it closed…and so did I.

I fell to pieces went into a deep depression. We’re all human – and yes, I went through my “dark night of the soul.”

I felt paralyzed… I couldn’t get off the couch… my motivation was GONE.

My friend – as hard as that period in my life was – there was one thing I held onto.

There was one thing I always had in my mind, no matter how horribly dead I felt. No matter how little possibility I saw in front of me – I always kept one thing in mind:

Source sees a very bright future

I couldn’t see it – but I felt God does. I felt that no matter how low I feel – there’s a bright future ahead. Sure, it didn’t make sense – but deep beliefs aren’t supposed to make sense.

I held onto that. As subtle as it was – I held onto it like a lifeline. And guess what?

It wasn’t that long afterwards that I met Mark, we started Big Impact…and wow, my life soon became that vision I held onto. Pure, total, MAGIC.

I know Source has the same bright vision for YOU. No matter how low you might feel on your journey to make your Big Impact – know that your future is BRIGHT.

Your Big Impact is NEAR – hold onto that vision and desire and watch miracles begin to unfold for you.
