Writing your sales page copy can feel like wringing blood from a stone sometimes 🙈 I've heard that before and I get it --
Sales page copywriting is BOTH a creative AND an analytical process.
If you've ever worked with me or you've followed me for any length of time, you'll probably know that when I say that it's legit 😀
You need sales page copy that will paint pictures and evoke emotions, copy that will create connection, build trust and nurture desire.
But you also need sales page copy that's better than the last thing you wrote -- copy that works based on results, numbers, persuasion psychology and feedback from your past and current clients.
That's why it's a whole separate role by itself 😉 Copywriters can be some of the best strategists for that very reason -- we have to look at what worked with your messaging last time, what didn't work, and make the adjustments.
If you've read this and you're thinking 'Uh, I don't do that with my sales page copy right now...but I'm launching soon, I probably need this kind of strategy and creativity cause that's NOT my zone of genius...' then my Copy & Marketing Intensive is for you ❤️
We'll rewrite your sales page and nail your custom marketing and launch plan in just 2 weeks (without you having to write it all yourself 🎉) for only $1,000 🙂 DM me to book your spot!

procrastination at its finest. Totally forgot I had to submit a purchase request for the school garden supplies. Decided to to capture a time lapse of me drafting the design and estimating the lengths of boards and soil. #ohwell#procrastination#timelapse
I remember the day I discovered procrastination was spiritual warfare working against me! I’m not saying the devil made me do it but I’m saying it’s a strategy he was using against me. For me it was in the area of writing, which is something God told me I was going to do.
Distractions, fear and intimidation, they can all lead to a levels of procrastination. Of course, there are many practical applications to overcome procrastination, taking things step by step, time management and more, which can help. Just the motivation of having utensils to eat with keeps me washing dishes, which I hate! 😂 So picturing the long term benefits and how they outweigh short term benefits can help overcome procrastination too.
The enemy of our soul can also use it to block us from doing what we need to do, especially when it comes to calling. It’s important to pray and get to the root causes of procrastination. Is there a lie, a fear, a belief system that keeps you us in a state of procrastination?
God wants us to move forward in life. Take our authority over the enemy and his schemes! It’s wisdom to ask the Holy Spirit to show us if there’s anything holding us back. There’s freedom from procrastination in Jesus name. Woohoo 🎉 .
Is your mind asleep? Do you see but remain blind? I know it's easy to slack, to get lazy and to just want to keep chasing entertainment and desires. If you want the reward without the effort then you're going to have to take the consequences later on.
Those consequences are fears of poverty, ill health, financial struggles, lack of love, relationships and death. Our own laziness is what prevents us from achieving control over those fears. Those that are willing to put the effort in, see the benefits.
Do you find yourself putting off going to class when you know you'd feel so much better if you just went, but after a long day at work you just brush it out of your mind? This weekend, take a look at the classes offered at your favourite studio or with your favourite teacher and pick one (or more!) to commit to attending this week. Sign up for it online so you've already booked your spot both in the class as well as mentally. When we pre-book things, it's less stressful because the decision has already been made - you don't have to decide if you're going, and you have a much higher chance of following through.
Are you just getting on with it? Or are you making excuses as to why you can't? Can't start, can't go to exhibitions, can't get motivated, can't, can't, can't - I once read that can't actually usually means won't...have a think about that.
It's not too late to enrol on my PLAN CREATE SUCCEED course. It's a 20 week course that will hold your hand, take you through what you need to do to get started, different ways to get started but you have to make the choice.

For some reason, we are expected to output work linearly. Perhaps because it would be convenient to those higher up in the hierarchy if we could be automated.
The reason for this ubiquitous falsehood doesn't really matter though. The truth is that most of us do not output work linearly. We sprint, and then we sit. "Procrastination" is a blanket term used for the times we are sitting. The root cause of this rest period could be a dozen things though.
Sometimes it is because we actually don't give a shit about this task, other times its because we are "pregnant with an idea" that needs some time to gestate, other times it is because we are building up potential energy to then covert in to kinetic energy in to a big beautiful fit of action, other times something else.
Procrastination is not laziness. It is resting. Planning. Integrating. Preparing. In fact, all the negative aspects that come from "procrastination" actually only occur because of our own warped view that it is a bad thing. This prevents us from achieving the necessary alignment the “procrastination” is tasked with acquiring.
We beat ourselves up and feel ashamed for procrastinating but all this does is prevent us from getting the clarity or relaxation or plan that is necessary to unlock our motivation. And because we remain in constant shame and stress we end up prolonging the procrastination 10X more was necessary AND dont even get its benefits! Instead, now in even more chaos, ready to repeat the cycle again.
Today, try trusting your laziness. Maybe you just had a big win and you're integrating it. Maybe you just pushed yourself hard for a month and deserve a break. Maybe you don't have clarity on your next big project and need mental space to refine it. Whatever it may be.
The biggest thing I've learned from studying procrastination for over a decade is that it is not a bug, it is a feature. You just need to learn to utilize it properly.

Ain’t that the truth. ✨
Fear and procrastination go hand in hand as far as I’m concerned. If I’m feeling fear, you better believe I will look for a reason to procrastinate. 🤦🏼♀️ Head over to my blog and check out my FIRST ever mini blog post on both! 💕
𝗧𝗶𝗷𝗱, 𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗴 𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴!
Toen ik begon met ADD Coaching calculeerde ik het bedrijfsrisico in dat mijn klanten te laat of helemaal niet zouden komen opdagen. In de praktijk komt dit niet vaak voor. Ik twijfelde ook aan mijn eigen administratieve en planmatige vaardigheden, maar ook hier valt het mee. Hooguit drie keer per jaar blijk ik een afspraak niet goed te hebben gewijzigd of heb ik per ongeluk twee cliënten op dezelfde tijd ingepland.
𝗔𝗳𝗴𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗸𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗼𝗽 𝗷𝗲 𝗔𝗗𝗗-𝗲𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗻
Gelukkig heerst er in mijn doelgroep geen afrekencultuur. En zelf hanteer ik ook een mild beleid, alhoewel ik dat hier natuurlijk niet moet zeggen (want dat zou niet professioneel zijn). Tja. Meestal valt de afspraak wel te wijzigen en wordt het probleem in dezelfde week nog opgelost.
𝗩𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝘁𝗲 𝘃𝗿𝗼𝗲𝗴!
Tijdens de een van mijn trainingen vroeg ik wie er standaard veel te vroeg is op een afspraak. Van de twaalf deelnemers staken er vier hun hand op. Hier speelt een onderliggende overtuiging mee, waardoor een strategie is ontstaan. Ik heb weleens een verhaal gelezen van een grootvader die altijd een halfuur te vroeg in de kerkbank zat op zondagochtend, waardoor zijn kleinkind wel heel lang de kaarsjes aan het tellen was.
En jij? Denk jij soms ook dat er een kwartier voorbij is en dat het dan anderhalf uur blijkt te zijn? Of dat je in de rij bij de kassa staat en dat het veel te lang duurt? Tijdsbewustzijn, wat kun je ermee, wat doe je eraan? En hoe schat je in hoelang je bezig bent met een taak?

I mean, it's not like I'm trying to work or anything, cat 😅🤷
Today, I am finishing up the Medicinal Use post for pineapple weed in the Herb of the Month Club! Hopefully I can film and post the in-field video too. That is, if Poe cat will move it 😽
How do you use the intellect that you were given at birth? The ability to analyze the environment, learn and create unlike any other creature on this planet? Most people never reach their potential and maximize their abilities because they are stunted from a young age, with false idea and concepts.
Whatever has happened to your beliefs about yourself, potential and capacity to succeed should never remain the same. If you allow yourself to learn a little each day then it is inevitable that you will grow as you move into the future.
What are you doing to earn that growth mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually?
Procrastination is a thief of time and quality because it stops you from doing things to the best of your ability because you have to rush and causes you to waste time.
Procrastinating doesn't cause tasks to disappear, it just prolongs the time until you have to face them.
