Every week, I send you a

Sunday Love Letter

I write them so that…

  1. You remember your culture-making power
  2. You have the inspiration + tools you need to grow a business that generates money AND justice

Let’s create a future in which we all flourish.

Are you in?

I’ve written before that business can inadvertently be a spiritual/self-development journey.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
But it can be even MORE than that.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
For culture-makers and people with social justice commitments, growing a business can (inadvertently) be a LIBERATION practice.⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Why?⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Because you have to unlearn all the capitalist myths and norms that are in your bones; heal them; and build alternative, justice-centered business practices into your platform, practice & business model.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
When you have a business, for example, you have to set prices & ask for money -- and if you belong to a group that is NOT supposed to have access to financial resources (people with racialized identities and women and queer folks and people with disabilities, AND, AND, AND) -- that can be viscerally uncomfortable. ⁠
⁠
It can become a roadblock that you have to deal with in order to move forward in your business development.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
That means in the course of doing business, it is GUARANTEED that you’ll have to explicitly confront and DISSOLVE your internalized oppression around money. ⁠
⁠
Hello, Liberation. Meet your friend, Business Growth.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Same with internalized sexism. In our culture, women are supposed to be decorative. We’re not supposed to advocate for our ideas or take up too much space. ⁠
⁠
But a successful online business REQUIRES visibility; thought leadership requires IDEAS. ⁠
⁠
So once again, in order to make their platforms and businesses work, women entrepreneurs have to confront & dissovle internalized gender oppression making them “play small”. ⁠
⁠⠀⁠
That’s why for some of us – culture makers, feminists, social justice advocates -- business CAN be a healing, liberation process.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Hello, Liberation. Meet your friend, Business Growth. Let’s flourish, together.⁠⠀⁠

I’m Kelly Diels and I’m a business development consultant for culture-making entrepreneurs. ⁠

In partnership with Danielle Cohen, I lead an intimate 4-month #mastermind for coaches, leaders, healers, & culture-makers called BESPOKE that helps you build a thriving business that makes money AND meaning⁠

I always feel a bit weird about these 'last-call' posts.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Please know this isn't 'fake scarcity' or fake pressure to get you to sign up (I wholeheartedly OPPOSE those tactics). ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Instead, this is a real deadline: ⁠⁠
the first live group call for We Are The Culture Makers 2024 is TOMORROW (Jan 25)...⁠⁠
⁠⁠
...so if you've been thinking you want to join, this is your loving reminder that today is the day :)⁠⁠
⁠⁠
***⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Here's what you get in We Are The Culture Makers 2024:⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🔥 Learn my self-coaching tool for getting out of shame and into your power -- on the spot, wherever you are⁠⁠
⁠
🔥Monthly group-coaching calls⁠ -- drop in at either 9am PST or 4pm PST (or both!) on the 3rd Thursday of each month⁠
⁠⁠
🔥3 video lessons each month on how to create new realities for yourself (and all of us!) around fraught issues like Power, Time, Money, Body, Likeability, Care, Work, Leadership and more⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🔥Regular Co-Working Sessions⁠ so you have time set aside in your schedule to watch your course lessons or work on projects that truly matter to you⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🔥Monthly Guided Meditation sessions to calm your central nervous system and bolster your spirit, taught by yoga breathing & meditation teacher Ntathu Allen⁠ (Find Ntathu at https://www.yogainspires.co.uk and @yogainspiresyou⁠)⁠⁠
⁠⁠
All in all, it's a year of radical encouragement meant to help you⁠⁠
(1) unlearn the social conditioning keeping us in self-doubt ⁠⁠
(2) learn the power-building habits that can help you rise -- personally, and collectively.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In other words: this is about getting out of shame and into power.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
If that sounds like a fit for you, I invite you to sign up with the link in bio @kelly.diels -- and thank you!⁠⁠

My theme for 2024 is BODY OF WORK.⁠
⁠
I'm personally doubling down on putting out my work in a bigger, more potent and more coherent way.⁠
⁠
If you're also going all-in expanding your reach and platform this year -- and building out your body of work -- and would like my eyes and feedback on what you've already built, I'm offering PLATFORM AUDITS this month.⁠
⁠
I use a 40-point framework to assess your website and social channels. ⁠
⁠
I review:⁠
⁠
⚡️Whether or not it is clear, from the outside looking in, who your ideal client is⁠
⁠
⚡️If your positioning aligns with your ideal client's needs and the way they like to work and buy (if not, I give very practical, do-able suggestions for what to do and say, instead)⁠
⁠
⚡️Your messaging & copy and what you can do to make it even more clear and compelling to your right client⁠
⁠
⚡️Your visuals, social channels and social profile -- what's working, what's not⁠
⁠
⚡️What you can do on your About page to inspire trust⁠
⁠
⚡️What you can do on your website (and social) to convert more readers into subscribers⁠
⁠
⚡️Your offers and sales pages -- are they on point for your client? What might need to change to invite more sales?⁠
⁠
⚡️Your job title, differentiators, and unique value proposition and provide suggestions for how to make them even more potent⁠
⁠
⚡️Any places the Female Lifestyle Empowerment Brand might be sneaking in :)⁠
⁠
After that, I send you a loom video and walk you through everything I see on your site and socials and what you might want to do to make your platform even more powerful.⁠
⁠
This audit is $300 USD and I complete it within 10 business days (usually, a lot faster than that).⁠
⁠
It's specifically designed for people building online, traffic-based businesses, selling 1:1 services and/or courses.⁠
⁠
If this audit sounds like the right way to start your year, I encourage you to check it out using the link in bio @kelly.diels -- and thank you!⁠
⁠
love + justice,⁠
Kelly⁠
⁠
PS The audit is here https://kellydiels.thrivecart.com/audit/
I want you to win.⁠
⁠
That's it. That's the post. ⁠

love + justice,⁠
