4. Marketing Practices - Trauma It Creates, What To Do Instead

Note: There's some cussing, swearing in this episode so be careful of whom you are listening with. 

The world of solo-preneurship is filled with traumatic marketing and sales practices. For empaths, intuitives and in general, loving people, something just doesn't feel right.

As a result, you keep yourself from promoting your own services because you don't want to be "that marketer" or on the other side you think that in order to create success, you have to follow those commonly prescribed promotional methods even when you hate them.

But marketing is NOT that.

So join in to hear:

  1. What marketing really is (Manasi learned this definition from Dr. Paula Saunders, her first marketing teacher in MBA and it has been her guiding light ever since to create loving marketing practices.)
  2. How to recognize when a certain marketing practice is inducing trauma in you
  3. 5 clues to be the detective that will help you keep an eye out and avoid such trauma

The end goal is that you create a business container that is loving and healing not just for your clients and audience, but also for you.
