Hey, everyone, I have a big announcement. This is an unofficial podcast episode. But I wanted to share some exciting news, I have signed up for Patreon. And that’s pa e t r o n. And so beginning March, that

is going to be my main platform for the podcast. If you followed me for a long time, you know, I talked about paying attention and being aware, and what are the signs showing. And several things have happened in the last few months that have made me decide to move to Patreon, I have to walk my talk, I’m always encouraging my clients to get paid for their work. I have done this podcast three, for this is the eighth season, I did three years on reawaken your brilliance, interviewing people I was happy to, I feel I’ve had this conversation with my mastermind partner, that when we were talking about my branding, and everything, and I said, you know, I choose to be of service, and I need to get paid. And I was talking about not everyone’s like that, in my particular industry, I would say locally. My impression from years ago when I belong to the industry group was it was about scarcity, and getting clients and getting money and all that. And I was always like, the right clients will find you and I still believe that. But there needs to be an equal exchange of energy. So I’m having this conversation, the mastermind, talking with my marketing guys, and I, you know, I don’t think you’re charging enough in some areas. And then it came up in plant medicine. And my teacher was talking about how she didn’t charge for like 15 years, and she has such a wealth of knowledge, I was blown away by that. And I get that when you have a spiritual bent, you get really, sometimes it’s a struggle to charge but as she said, an equal exchange of energy. So I’ll be moving to Patreon, I will still be doing videos. But what I’ve decided is I’m like, for example, I’m launching this in March. And I have a full month of podcast episodes. But I’m only going to be showing two videos in two podcasts. I don’t know if I’m going to continue with YouTube. Because when again, I’m my brother gifted me and I’ve got two marketing guys I meet with twice a month and I was like, wow, YouTube’s use it is like let’s try to make some cash and do advertising on YouTube. And it’s not, I don’t make anything YouTube does pretty well, but I don’t get that. So I’m still figuring everything out. I just read the TomTom, the marketing guys, and Apple’s gonna start charging for podcasts. And you might be listening to this on a model that already charges. No, I’m telling my marketing guys about this and, and Robbie got on and Google. So Apple is going to take 95% So that means I do all the work and get 5% Apple’s gonna take 95% which makes Amazon look super generous after hearing that. And that doesn’t sit right with me. And just as an FYI, if you’re into astrology, it’s the Age of Aquarius is about the power of the people. And don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that. Apple has given me a platform as I’m appreciative Amazon, I’ve reached people that I probably wouldn’t be able to reach although again, you know, you get that whole algorithm things. But the reason I’m going to Patreon Patreon gives me 92%. And they take 8%. And it’s about it was created in the mind like that the creative people should have the money in their pocket. So I’ll get a little more money than I do if I’m with iTunes or Amazon. Now, again, haven’t quite figured this out, I would really love for you to come on over and join me at Patreon. You know, I did a podcast back in September, and people don’t value stuff when they get it for free. When I get the emails and comments about how much they’ve enjoyed the podcast that speaks to me, I mean, I get so excited. And they talk about how they’ve moved forward in their life. That’s where I want my focus to be I want people who are ready to learn and grow and move forward. And at the beginning of 2020 I set an attention that I only wanted to work with people who are ready to do the work. Now there’s again there’s no judgement you are where you are. And I know I go through phases of life or work work work then like oh, I need a break. I need to go have fun and not worry about my clutter. Psychologists have found that you know people who pay for things value the more as I just mentioned a moment ago and so when I was making notes to share this with you, I learned Tony Robbins charge a million dollars and his success rate is 100%. And he said, you know if you’re going to pay that much you’re going to do the work.

I’m not gonna charge a million dollars. That’s because that’s not who I am. However, I want to create a revolution of people clearing their clutter and that means doing On the work, I want people sharing their gifts with the world, that’s the whole reason I started it, what I’ve decided to do is I’ve created four different levels. And it’s going to make it affordable. And so it’s kind of think of it as a way to get some coaching. That’s kind of where my focus is now. And you’ll listen, the podcast. And one of the things that I appreciated with Patreon is that you can create different levels, you know, for instance, my base level is $5 a month now, that’s less than what you’d say pay for fancy pants, coffee at Starbucks. And one of the things they kind of help you set up the, the levels, and they wouldn’t include the archive of everything and have to pay more for that like now, you know, I’m happy to include everything in the archive for that level. And so it starts out at $5 a month, it’s really affordable. And you get a discount on my classes and courses. And that was important to me as well, because again, keeping everything affordable. And an equal exchange of energy for all the work that I’m putting into it. And Patreon just makes the most sense. Again, I’m grateful for everything like Apple and Amazon. But when you’re taking 95%, that just doesn’t sit right with me. So it’s if you go to Patreon, and that’s pa e t r o n. And just search for reawaken your brilliance, you will find me some more information on all the levels again, it starts out at $5 a month, super affordable. And I hope you keep tuning in. Even if you don’t join me on Patreon. You know, I always respect where everyone is. Again, this is something I’ve been stewing on for a while. And I think that it was kind of nebulous, and that’s when I thought oh, I should just stop the podcast with it. Now I really enjoy doing it. I think now, an element of that was it’s important to have that equal exchange of energy. And if I’m setting the intention to work with people wanting to do the difference, that’s what I want to create a revolution. I’m not kidding, I really, really desire to live in a world where people sharing their their gifts, I think that’s really important to me. And we’ll just have to see how it goes. You know, I had mentioned at the beginning of the year that I want to keep everything up if I’m not, if Apple’s gonna chart, I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m going to keep the archive there or move it completely to Patreon. I haven’t figured all that out. I’m just kind of want to see how creating this channel goes. And where we go from there. And again, the same with YouTube just because I thought oh, you know, let them do ads as a way to make money. But when we I looked at the marketing guys, it’s it’s just wow, it was not good. And so I thought, why am I allowing others to advertise when I just might as well do my own product. So anyway, that’s my big announcement. So you’ll still have two episodes going forward at the moment. That’s the plan, we’ll have to see how it goes. I’m really excited about doing Patreon. And I hope that it’s x success. And again, if you’re looking for an affordable way to get some more coaching, one of the things that I’ve done, I’m creating sheet to follow along with the podcast. I think that’s really important. So getting you to write it down getting you to answer those questions. And I know I’m more visual. And I like to write things down and give myself a deadline. That’s how I get stuff done. So a lot of exciting things. I’m planning some special events. We will got all that going on. But we’ll at least get started in March with five podcast episodes as opposed to two that you’ll hear on iTunes. And you know, I’m taking a chance we’ll see how this goes but I figure I might as well just go for it. So again, if you go to Patreon and check out reawaken your brilliance, that’s my channel. Let me know what you’re thinking. I will also put a link on my website. reawaken your brilliance calm and no matter what you choose. Go out Clear Your Clutter to create the life you choose deserve and desire.
