You, my friend, are a creative and adventurous Fiddle Fig.
You know exactly what you like and what you don’t, but as a result, you’re afraid to show up with confidence in case you offend or alienate people.
It’s clear that you CARE DEEPLY about your clients and your work. But you may be feeling frustrated from moulding yourself to fit everyone’s expectations.
You are so close to building a business that allows you to show up CONSISTENTLY WITH CONFIDENCE and be recognised financially for the life-changing results you get for your clients.
What you need is to accept you’re a PINA COLADA, not a lukewarm cup of tea.
Are you ready? Keep reading to learn more.
As a FIDDLE FIG, this is what a thriving business environment looks like for you.
A predictable and sustainable income that gives you the peace of mind to show up as you are.
Having multiple ways to express your creativity means you never grow tired of connecting with your community.
Having the flexibility to tailor work hours allows you to channel your inspiration into the work you’re doing.
Clients who value your ability to get the work done, allowing you to work when, where and how it feels good to you.
Time in your calendar to daydream, explore and create helps you process and generate ideas.
To give your business the TLC it needs, try these ideas out.
Just because one person doesn’t understand your sense of humour doesn’t mean you need to stop making the rest of your community smile. Trying to blend into the crowd means, won’t help your business grow. It will only lead to frustration and b-grade clients.
Remember: you don’t have to ignore your values to work with clients. Instead, you should share your values and beliefs daily, so you attract the right clients for you.
If you find yourself hesitating before expressing yourself, ask yourself: Will sharing help my community? Do I know this to be true for me? Will I be doing myself or my clients a disservice if I don’t act? If your answer is yes to all of these questions, then show up with confidence and say your piece.
And if your clients disagree with what you say, it’s time to let them go. There are clients out there who will pay to work with you precisely because of your VALUES, STYLE and HUMOUR. You need to trust in yourself and believe in your self-worth.
Your freedom lifestyle fuels your business. If you been structuring your day around your client project and not your energy, you need to create your ideal workday. Set aside a few hours this week to list all the things you do in a day – from personal to work tasks – and then map out when you’d like to do each one, factoring in when your energy is high vs when it is low. Don’t judge yourself or force expectations. Instead, go with your gut.
Come back to your ideal workday a few days later and reflect. Have you factored in enough downtime? Can you flow easily from one task to the next? Are you prioritising your creative pursuits and client work equally?
You’ll be surprised how quickly you can build an engaged community and a business that supports you as you work on the go when you give yourself PERMISSION TO SPARKLE.

I’ve been embracing a multi-passionate approach to my career and life for over 14 years.
I’m a marketing coach, award-winning copywriter, published author, international speaker and teacher.
I support women in building ethical, sustainable, and profitable businesses without choosing between their passions, compromising their values to make money, and using unethical tactics.
The business world loves saying you should get in the head of your ideal client, niche down, and get strategic with your content.
But if you find yourself hesitating because you’re afraid you’ll lose clients or you want to work with different people, or you’re not an expert yet, I don’t blame you.
There’s a lot of bad advice when it comes to creating your services and marketing your business.
After running a successful service-based business, launching my own profitable programs and courses, starting a podcast, and being featured in the media, I’ve learned a thing or two about how people get trapped in client rut and a lousy content marketing cycle. And how to get them focused and growing again.
My job is to help you identify your niche, build a signature service, and launch with confidence, so you can finally work with dreamy clients and run a business that supports your multi-passionate lifestyle.
I’ve helped over 3,000 people across my programs and workshops, and I can help you too.
And because as a fellow plant owner, I know you’re dying to ask…I have 40 indoor plant babies. My first plant was a Boston Fern (It’s still alive eight years later!). I’m currently obsessed with my Pink Panther, and I’m holding out for the perfect Birds of Prey for my home office.
You’ve discovered your business’ plant persona… now what?
It’s time to grow a thriving business that supports YOUR multi-passionate lifestyle.
Financial freedom is only a season away if you start planting the seeds today.
Here’s how to do that…
