There’s so much awesome happening here that it’s almost too much for one post. ALMOST.
First off, if you have a keen eye, you may have noticed a few tiny changes around the blog. Most notably you may see that the headline of the email sign up in the header now reads:
“Join Self-Made Society, an email community for soulful creatives.”
Now, WHAT pray-tell is “Self-Made Society”? Thanks for asking, I’d be happy to tell you.
Back when I launched Made Vibrant in January of this year, I obviously had no idea how it would evolve or what kind of amazing community would stem from it. I had a vague understanding of what I wanted to create, but mostly I was just letting my intuition lead me, trying out different things and seeing what felt right. I honestly thought maybe down the road I’d create greeting cards or sell hand-lettered art or digital design goodies but I had no clue which of those would feel like the right move for me.
That’s why I started two separate email lists: one that was more geared toward my writing with a weekly newsletter for creatives (Your Life Made Vibrant), and one that was purely for updates about my forthcoming-but-still-quite-nebulous Shop.
Well, fast-forward a few months, and it’s now incredibly clear that what I enjoy most of all is connecting with creatives through my writing, and helping readers – like you! – become the brightest versions of themselves. I love the email conversations that stem from my Monday newsletters, and it’s the greatest gift to support some of you as you progress toward work that truly lights you up. THAT is the kind of thing I want my shop offerings to focus on (for now!): Practical resources for soulful creatives (ie. my fancy term for creative people striving to connect with their authenticity and live an intentional and happy life.)
As some of you know, right now I’m in the midst of developing my very first interactive, worksheet-based Creative Guide, which will officially go on sale next month.
I’ve been working hard for weeks to create an engaging, yet practical resource that’s chock full of insights and intention-based challenges to help anyone who’s eager to live a more authentic life but that doesn’t quite know where to start.
All of that said, it’s become quite clear to me that there is a lot of overlap in the content of both of my email lists so… I’m combining them to create one supergroup list called, you guessed it, Self-Made Society!
This email list is my way of connecting in a deeper way with those of you out there that are brilliant, creative, passionate people who want to achieve self-made success. If you have a desire to create a business and a life that feels authentic to your core, I’m here to help you and you belong in this club!
But wait, this is important!
If you are signed up for my Your Life Made Vibrant newsletter or my Shop update email list (or both!) then you don’t have to do a thing!! I’ll be combining the two lists into one later today so no action is required on your part.
The only thing that will change is that your 0-1 emails a week MAY increase to 1-2 emails per week: the Your Life Made Vibrant newsletter on Mondays + possibly a product update email later on in the week. I KNOW. Hopefully you can manage.
And, of course, if you’re not already a part of the email party, sign up in the blog header or at the end of this post and see what all the fuss is about!
For the next few weeks leading up to the Creative Guide launch, I’ll be sharing a FREE resource each Friday on the blog exclusively for those who join Self-Made Society. If you’re on the list, you’ll get the freebie delivered straight to your inbox. If you’re not, you can get it through the blog by simply entering your email then.
Check back in tomorrow if you want to see what’s in store!
I PROMISE that I won’t abuse my email powers and clog up your inbox with pointless links to new blog posts (that’s not how I roll.)
I’m incredibly grateful to those of you who have supported me by joining my email list and I want to show that gratitude by providing you only the most valuable, vibrant content.
That’s it. Enjoy!
