How Do You Get in the Mindset of Being a Fully-Integrated Creative?

What does it mean to be an integrated creator?

  • You are aware of your uniqueness and you know how to leverage it
  • You do not spend time chasing validation or approval because you are so clear on who you are, who you serve, and how you deliver
  • You are sold on yourself and your offers and believe in your hype first
  • You know how to get out of your own way and you know how to do that without being a bully to yourself

Now that I understand what it takes, it is absolutely BONKERS to think that MINDSET ALONE is what you need to be visible.

You also need to know how to put this together through a Marketing lens.

It has taken me three years to have clarity on my zone of genius, my first offer, and how I wanted to show up online.

What took me so long?

I had to go through the experience so I could understand why authenticity and visibility is so damn hard (and why marketing is not where you start but it’s also a key piece to overcome those blockages).

What really helped me connect the dots was learning about archetypes, and then I added my own MBA twist to it.

Archetypes helped me see that my weaknesses, fears and self-sabotage were just unbalanced versions of something that had a lot of depth and power.

My tendency to depression was just a silenced Maiden that was dying to be heard.

My Huntress rage was only destructive when I didn’t give it space.

My Sage will turn me into a cold-hearted cynic when I don’t let the Lover in.

My Lover is not a weakness, my desires are clues guiding me to my purpose.

All of these things were impacting my ability to show up.

But, once I did the work, it all started to fall into place.

I finally understood that my offers need to be the pure expression of the Maiden and Sage. We play and strategize, that’s my zone of genius.

I finally owned that my purpose is the pure embodiment of the Huntress. I want to help solopreneurs, coaches, creators to amplify their voices because when they do that, they are able to build a life in their own terms. And that shit makes me happy because I know what it’s like to feel stuck, living a life you don’t even want.

I finally understood how to incorporate my Lover. She is the benevolent CEO who keeps me grounded and in love with the journey.

Now that I have that clarity, I have already come up with 20 different things I could do in my business. Even though at the time of this writing I have made zero dollars from my offer, I had no doubt in my mind that I can do this.

That’s the true power of doing the integration work. I was a marketer before any of this, and yet I struggled SO MUCH with being present and visible online.

So, if you are thinking that you need more tactics and more strategy, or that you need more #innerhealing, how about we look at where you are at, and then make practical and strategic marketing decisions in alignment with this current badass version of you?


This is why I believe that my offer is helpful at any stage of your business:

  • Struggling with putting yourself out there, even though you know what you want to do?
  • Struggling to attract your people, even though you know you are the shit at what you do?
  • Struggling to build a SUSTAINABLE marketing and launch strategy that doesn’t feel gross, exhausting, gimmicky?


We draw our inspiration from the Goddesses to see the power within us. And once you see that, the rest will start to flow. Integration + Strategy = Magnetic, Visible You

No need to be the wokiest of the woke.

No need to be level 100 in your mindset work.

No need for high vibes 24/7.
