It is never too late. It's never too late to go after your dreams and do what you want to do. In fact, it's some of the best motivation that you might ever have in your life is when you feel really inspired.
Welcome to Thrive by Design, the podcast for ambitious, independent jewelry brands, looking to profit from their products, get ready to make more and sell more doing what you love, without spending every single waking minute doing it. Hey, and if you're a creative fashion or product based business, I want to welcome you to the show. I'll be dropping big tips on launching, growing and scaling your business. So you can spend more of your precious time using your creativity to make money. You ready? All right, let's do this.
Welcome to the Thrive by Design podcast episode 300. I am so excited. It's Tracy Matthews, Chief Visionary Officer of Flourish and Thrive and the founder of the Creatives Rule the World Movement and I am beyond thrilled to be here at my 300th episode, I can't even believe it. It's been a labor of love. We've worked so hard to produce this podcast every single week. And here we are 300 episodes. And in fact, I just heard from my Podcast Producer that we are at about 900 and something 1000 downloads, which is very exciting. Only 100,000 more to get to a million downloads, which is amazing for a nice podcast like this.
I'm thrilled about it, that means that we are in the top 90th percentile. And we have a small and mighty following here. And I so appreciate you. So this episode is all about celebration, and I am going to dive into it in a minute. And for that reason, in particular, I am going to celebrate you by giving away an epic free gift.
I've been thinking like I've actually been in this huge place of resistance. I'm recording this only a week before usually I record my podcasts like at least a month in advance. And I'm recording week before I'm in the process of moving into a corporate apartment or moving my stuff from New York into a corporate apartment here in Scottsdale, so that I can work out of the house, you're going to see the new backdrops coming soon. And these last couple of years is felt like I've had a lot going on. And in particularly right now because I'm like the transition from my New York City move to here just outside of Scottsdale has been interesting. And it's complete, it feels so weird.
Like I am now an Arizonian instead of a New Yorker. So I know I'll be back in New York City. I'll be back in New York City soon, probably by the summer. But at the same time, I'll be back in New York City with the residents I'm sure within the next three years or so when things kind of get a little bit more back to normal there. And May is an incredible month for me. It's my birthday month, and I'm turning 50 I honestly can't believe it. I've been in my 40s for 10 years, and I can't believe I'm turning 50. And so I'm about to go on a vacation that my first vacation in a long time to Hawaii with my man Jason. And we're gonna have a blast for my birthday. So we'll be there at the end of the month. But in the meantime, I want to make this month a celebration month in general.
So it's literally perfect that the 300th episode lands on this month. So I wanted to come up with something really amazing to give to you for free. So I'm like what could you do? What can you do? What do you love to do? Creatives Rule the World you know, I love helping people cast bigger visions and ideate and develop ideas that are actually in alignment with what they want to create in their lives. So I came up with two things, and I hope you enjoy them.
One of them is free, and one of them is super low cost for our podcast listeners. So they're both literally steals and you're definitely gonna want to do it. The first is our Aligned Vision or My Aligned Vision Workbook. Now, the Aligned Vision Workbook is something that I created originally for Creatives Rule the World when I had a planning day in New York a couple of years ago. The people who came out of that planning day, their minds were blown.
In fact, Sabina Hitchen, who you will know from the podcast and from our community, literally said, Tracy, the things that I learned in that workshop that I learned about myself, actually held me accountable to have the best year in business that I ever had. And this was during the pandemic. So, so here we go, you're going to get this workbook for free. It's called the Aligned Vision Workbook. And over the years, I've helped countless people think bigger for themselves and do amazing things in their business. And it all starts with getting crystal clear on what you want and integrating your business into your life.
Most people do it the other way they make their life fit into their business. And that's not how it should be. So here's the deal, I usually charge the big bucks for this stuff and previously, it's only been available at my own personal retreats, and my high touch coaching events. So for Momentum, and for my Creatives Rule the World consulting clients, you can download this workbook in honor of our 300th episode. But I just want to ask you favor first. So in order to grab this, all you have to do is to rate and review the Thrive by Design podcast. Obviously, I would love for you to give us a five star review. But if that's not how you really feel, then obviously, share with us your true feelings.
What I want you to do is just take a screenshot of your rating and review, it's helpful if you add some words to it and tell us what you love. I'm going to share with you where to go to you're going to head on over to flourishthriveacademy.com/podcastreview and you're going to fill out a quick form there where you upload a screenshot of the review. And then you'll have access to download this workbook for free, it's going to help you cast a bigger vision and clear out all the roadblocks along the way to create amazing success.
So this is, as I mentioned, it's 100% free, all you got to do is just give us a little rating and review. And the reason why I'm asking for this is because we are at the 300th episode, I would love for more people to find out about this podcast and one of the ways that people find out about it, is by getting their podcast rating rated and reviewed, we have over 150 something reviews at this point, I'd really love to get to hundreds and hundreds, or even 1000s in a short period of time. So if you're willing to help me with that, it would be awesome and your five star reviews actually help show the podcast to more people like you.
So if they're they have the same behaviors or whatever on Apple podcasts, then it's an opportunity for more people like you who are jewelry designers or makers or in the creative product industry to get to listen to it. So and we're doing pretty well, we have 900,000 downloads already, which is exciting for me, especially for a niche podcast, that usually doesn't happen for such smaller podcasts. And then also like once you have the vision and you're starting to align your business with your life, instead of aligning your life with your business. The other way around, I want to help you determine your how to create a filter for the ideas that you're coming up with. So I'm hosting a low investment workshop.
Normally, as I mentioned, when I do these workshops, I charge thousands of dollars, because they're usually delivered in person and they're pretty high value. So this is going to be delivered on May 18. So if you're interested in learning more about this, it's designed to teach you how to align, validate and produce winning ideas that propel your business forward and are aligned with your bigger vision, from marketing strategy to new product launches, customer engagement strategies. How do you really know if the ideas you have are good enough to move forward? I see so many people like struggling like should I spend time on this, they spend time on developing a collection or doing something in marketing that just ends up being a flop because they don't fully validate the idea. So it ends up being a huge waste of time, a lot of money and at the end of the day, they're not their sales aren't growing and they're feeling frustrated and like they're it's not, they're not good enough.
So I really want to encourage everyone listening to this to stop wasting time and energy by following every idea that you come up with and instead focus on the good ones. So in the workshop, I'm going to teach you how to determine if the idea is a good one or distraction, or even something that's worth pursuing. I'm going to share with you the five step filtering process to align your ideas with your bigger vision. And we're going to determine if your audience really wants it, how to validate your idea before you invest in it. So to get access to this, you're going to head on over to flourishthriveacademy.com/workshop I promise to deliver you amazing value in this.
It will also be recorded if you can't attend live, the investment for this week for the podcast listeners is $97 and it is a steal. Let me tell you, you are going to love it. Okay, So the beginning part of the celebration is started I'm sharing with you free gifts, and also a special workshop just for thrive by design listeners. And I'm thrilled about it because I truly believe that all you creatives out there, we rule the world and we have a lot of value to offer. And it's important.
So let's talk about the significance of this episode. As I mentioned earlier, I'm turning 50 this month, which is huge. I can't believe it. I don't feel 50 I don't really look 50 At least that's what you will tell me. And yeah, I feel like dude, like half my life's over already, which is kind of weird to even think about that. At the end of the day. I'm kind of woo. So I wanted to come up with something cool instead of like the basic like 300 takeaways or 300 marketing ideas, because that's just boring and listicle. So instead, what I wanted to do was just talk about some insights that are having helped me develop more abundance in my life, in my bank account and all the areas of my existence, I guess, is the best way to put it.
So I was on a call with my friend, Leanne Kallal, a couple of days ago, or maybe it was yesterday, when I'm recording this. And she has a podcast called the The GlowJo Podcast, definitely go listen to it. I'm going to be a guest on her show soon. And we were chitchatting about some stuff. And she's like, Okay, I have an idea for you. Because I'm like, I'm stuck. I don't know what to do, I was having a lot of resistance around figuring out the episode. So she's like, I have an idea. Okay, 300, and you're turning 50. So the number three is the number of creativity, the number five is the month of May. And it's also the first part of 50. So it makes sense, right? When you add three and five together, that comes up with eight, and eight is the number of abundance. So this episode is all about creative abundance, I love it.
So I'm going to share eight insights that have helped me create more abundance in my life and in my business, and my bank account, and all those things that I'm bringing forward into my 50th year, because let's face it, 50, or 300 is a way too many things to listicle out or talk about. So I want to keep it short.
So number one, this is a huge takeaway you are capable of more than you think is possible. So whatever your view, your worldview of yourself is right now, you are way more capable than you think you are of so much more. And that can come in many facets, right? You know, a lot of us have to deal with a lot in our lives. In fact, I was doing a Human Design reading with this woman a couple of weeks ago. And she's reading my chart. And if you don't know what human design is, definitely check it out. It's kind of like a blend of like 17 different modalities. And I'm kind of woowoo and weird, if you haven't figured that out yet. But she was sharing, she's like, you know, your life is split up in three parts. And the third part of your life is about to start on June 15. This is a really abundant time for you and you're going to be projecting and moving into a new direction in your life. And it's like it, it's a really amazing window, just like but when we look back, you know, the first part of your life was full of a lot of hardship and challenges and these challenges. We're here to test you to show you what you're capable of, to show how resilient you are. And to also kind of make you like a persistent mofo as like Jason would say, you know, continually move forward. And because of that, you kind of walk this hero's journey and this like ongoing path. And when I think about it, she's right. Like, before I even turned 13. So much had happened in my life.
We've moved several times, there were, there's some personal things in my family that happened that I can't really discuss publicly on this podcast. But it was pretty traumatic. When I was a teenager, I had suffered from an eating disorder. I had a boyfriend at the time, who I didn't really realize it until I was adult was quite mentally abusive. I had met my high school boyfriend, he ended up not my high school boyfriend, I should say, my college boyfriend, who I ended up marrying who actually ended up being we had an amazing relationship. And I don't like to talk disparagingly about him. But he did a lot of hurtful things to me and cheated on me a lot, is quite devastating. And by the time I was 30, not only had I gotten a divorce, but at the age of 22, my mother passed away. And so I had so much life experience from a very young age that it just it seemed like, I don't know, in many of my family members to same thing, right? It just seemed like life was really hard. And this is just what you do. My 30s got a little bit easier in a different way until like I had another obstacle. Another big obstacle, which was, it's always been described to me as like my 30s through 40s was like the time of my life, whereas building the stepping stones to like where I was going and around early 40s is when I started Flourish and Thrive Academy.
So it's been a journey, it there's been a lot of ups and downs. And there have been a lot of resistance and challenges along the way. But what I realized now is that I am so much more capable now than I ever thought it would be back then, of a much more resilient, I don't like to consider myself as a resilient person, because that means that I'm always overcoming challenges. And with that being said, I just want to remind you, that you and I are capable of a lot more than we think is possible. So keep that vision alive.
Now my second little abundance takeaway, and the thing that's really helped me is to cast a bigger vision than you think you deserve. You just might get it. Now. I used to be in this practice all the time. I fell off it for a minute and I had to get back to it on Monday I was having a really Monday and Tuesday were really rough for me of last week as you're listening to this. This is last week. There was a new moon in Scorpio or full moon in Scorpio and I didn't realize it and I was so emotional and I'm also have my Venus is in Taurus. And there was like some conjunct with Venus and Taurus. And whether or not you believe in astrology or not anytime there's a full moon, our bodies are made of 90% water and the moons control the tide. So it definitely has an effect on humans too. That's why you see, you always hear about these crazy things about people howling at the moon or whatever. The moon is what controls the tide in the ocean. It's also very feminine energy. I was in like a massive funk. It was rough. And things just didn't seem like they were going my way I was having meltdowns every five seconds Jason's like, what's going on with you? Let me help you. And I realized I gotten away for the moment from being in a place of creation of what I was trying to create. And I remember back to all the times because I have a pretty robust journaling practice that I've gotten out of lately, because my, because of all the changes that are happening right now, I haven't really had a standard morning routine, which is not my jam, I love to have my standard morning routine. And they got out of my cocreation process. And so when I acknowledged it and realize that this full moon was here to represent casting a bigger vision and talking about what you want to create, not what you don't want, so that your mind can focus and move towards the direction of what you do want. And it snapped me out of it.
So I came home, I spent about 30 minutes to 40 minutes before I went to bed, journaling and doing a free writing exercise. And, wow, I woke up this morning feeling refreshed. I had two and a half hours of deep sleep, which is very rare for an adult. That's usually what kids get, like, I slept really hard. And I feel refreshed. So I want to remind you that cast a bigger vision than you think you deserve, because you just might get it. This is exactly the same process that I used to develop and manifest Jason into my life, my apartment in New York City, the new apartment, that corporate apartment that I'm getting here in Scottsdale, and so much more. And so I'm excited because some big things are about to happen that I'm going to share with you over the coming months that I'm going to be manifesting using this vision exercise. And I just want to remind you that as part of that 300th episode, you also get access to My Aligned Vision Workbook, which is all about helping you do this exercise for yourself as well, like whenever you want, right.
So number three is sorry, I hate to break it to you, but not all your your ideas are good. But the they might lead to better ideas. And so part of the reason why I wanted to host this ideation workshop, and the creators of the world workshop, where I'm going to help you validate your ideas, and make sure that they're aligned with your vision is for this reason, in particular, I learned from the school of hard knocks that following every single idea is not necessarily a good idea. Because you waste time you waste money, you feel disconnected and distracted. And sometimes it leads to a better idea. But a lot of times it just ends up being a waste of time. So let's get you focused on the ideas that work if you while the link in the show notes, if you want to join us for the Creative Rule the World workshop that I'm hosting on May 18th. It is value driven, I usually charge thousands of dollars for this. So you definitely should check it out.
Number four, you can't create what you want, if you have resistance towards it. This was one of the lessons that I had to learn many, many times. But even more recently, this week. So I started reading this book called The Completion Process on the I many of my friends, my friend, Christy Waterfall, who runs a program called Songa includes this in her program, and Jason's reading it right now, because he's doing a songa training. And many of my friends in my soul family, I'm just calling my soul family because they're not my real family. But they're my soul family are also reading it and have talked about it. And it's interesting, because she has an amazing story. If you want to look her up, you definitely should. And I definitely recommend getting the book The Completion Process But I watched a video of hers on YouTube. And basically she explains that the law of attraction is annoying AF for a very particular reason. Not that it doesn't work because it does work. And how she explained it is that like, if you only focus on positive things, but you have resistance towards it, you're not going to get what you want. So you're going to think that it doesn't work. What you're doing is you're when you're having resistance is you're aligning what you're co creating with the resistance, not with what you desire. So the only way that you can move through the resistance is by clearing out that resistance and she walks you can google Law of Attraction or Resistance Teal Swan, and find some of her YouTube videos about this. But at the end of the day, what I think is really important is that when you are trying to manifest and create whatever it is that you want to create in your life, is that you get really clear and are able to identify when you're experiencing resistance. So resistance can come in the form of anxiety or it can come in the form of fear procrastination, or let's see, it can come in the form of blaming others having really strong negative emotions, saying things like, I can't do that, or this is never gonna work for me getting in that fight or flight mode or panicking. These are all signs of resistance, frustration, if I didn't say that already. Another good one is avoidance or procrastination, also signs of resistance. So if you're resisting moving something forward, and you're getting all perfectionist about something, you don't want to put it out there, this is something to look at, because it's really preventing you from getting in the flow or in the vortex of what you're trying to create. And it's important for us to be energetically aligned with those things. So step one, clear the resistance before you start moving towards what it is that you want to create.
Number five, it's never too late to fill in the blank. As an older, wiser person than probably most of you, I can't say all of you, but most of you, I still feel young, and I'm going to do a lot more things in my life. So no matter what, at what age, you're never too young, or you're never too old to blank, so I want you to dream big, like what is it that you're putting off because you feel like you're too old, or you feel like you're too young, I want to challenge you to do something bold, whether it reached like a specific sales goal, or go jump off that bungee jump, or, you know, make a big life change that feels scary, like whatever it might be, it is never too late, it's never too late to go after your dreams and do what you want to do. In fact, it's some of the best motivation that you might ever have in your life, is when you feel really inspired to go towards that thing. So this is a kind of a short one. But I do think it's really powerful. So I think you should listen to me and challenge yourself to do something that you've been putting off because you think you have judgments about yourself or your situation.
Number six, not everyone is your customer. And another way to put this is people who say they want help, don't always mean it. And I'm saying this from personal experience, because people come to me and ask you asking for help all the time. But they aren't willing to make that investment in themselves. So this is like one side of the coin. But also, it's the other side of the coin, if you're selling a physical product, when you're trying to sell to everyone, even the people who say that they want to work with you, if they're never not really taking action or taking that next step. I don't want you to take this personally, because they're not actually your customer. If that's the case, we had to go through an experience right now where someone was really resistant to like really diving in to what we teach over here. And they basically showed up pay for something and then just like peace out because they didn't, they didn't really want to help. Because getting help sometimes or looking at yourself, or investing in yourself, whether it be in a piece of jewelry, or a product or doing that that thing you know, that feels really scary, oftentimes becomes a mirror for you to have to look at your shit, excuse my language, but it's the truth, like you're having to look at all these things that might be painful, or might feel like a big challenge for you. And the reason why I want to mention this is that when you can remember, in those moments, where you're feeling that frustration, or whatever it might be, because you've worked really hard on something and then the deal falls through or you've tried really hard to get somewhere to help someone and they don't want your help or, you know, whatever it might be that you just realized, you know, maybe they're not ready for it. Maybe they're not your customer, maybe they're not ready to make that significant change for themselves. So I think this is really important. Even though we can talk about this topic in multitude of ways. Just remember, this is one of the four agreements to not take anything personally. And when the right situation shows up, it will reveal itself to you. And so whether that be people buying from you, or you finding the right coach or healer or helper or in reverse, like helping other people, whatever it might be, you're going to experience this dance, this energetic dance with people who are ready and not ready throughout the rest of your life. So remember that not everyone's your customer, or people who say they want to help don't always mean it.
Number seven, this one is my favorite. So first you create your environment and then your environment creates you. This is a saying that comes from my man Jason. And Jason is our mindset coach in Momentum. He is incredible. It's really hard when he coaches me because I experienced resistance because we're so close and we have such a deep relationship that it's hard when someone knows you really well and they can call you out on your stuff or they're pushing you in a direction that feels uncomfortable at the time. Well, we've been on a journey man like we met about two years ago. Oh my gosh, we actually forgot to celebrate our two year, two year meeting anniversary, which we're going to have to do tonight, I have to tell him, which was April 19 2019.
Anyway, we met two years ago. And Jason and walked into my apartment, he was invited over by a consultant that I was working with at the time, who happened to be in New York City, it was his first time ever in New York City. And he shows up and I'm like, who's this guy, he's super cute. And turns out, he wasn't available for dating. So later on, he ends up working in my company, we became friends, we got to know each other, and our relationship just naturally unfolded. And it came on like a storm once it actually happened. But it's been a journey, we had a lot of healing work to do together. And so when I moved here, you know, after really dating him for three months, which is not very long, in my opinion, to date someone and then move in with them. I was, you know, like, my life was kind of like uprooted you know, I'd been a single person living on my own for most of my time, from the age of 30, through the age of 50, or 49, or whatever it was. And it was a challenge, because I was learning how to like blend household how to move into someone else's house, which wasn't mine, how to try to diplomatically redecorate. To make the place more feminine. I mean, you can't help the guy. He's an amazing dad. And he's done the best that he can. But let's just say he decorated the place and never did anything with it again. And you know, things need upgrade over 10s of, you know, long decades or whatever. Long story short, I moved into a place that was very different for me, I felt so uprooted because I didn't have my own space. And it's been a challenge because this house is an amazing home. And it's a great home for his daughters. But it's not that big. And I don't have a space for me to have like my own office here. And so I've been in this constant back and forth battle, like what do I do? Do I get an office space, but that's not really like suiting what I what I need from a creative perspective, because I want to have my own space. And so I decided to rent a corporate apartment is a huge investment. And it doesn't totally make sense. But I feel guided to do it. So I'm doing it. And the same thing happened about four years ago, when I moved into my apartment in Hudson Yards, or when I was looking for a new apartment in in New York City. And I decided at that point, about four years ago that I was going to look for a new apartment, it took me about six months to find the place. But I finally found it. And it was an interesting process. Because sometimes things don't make sense. But when you create the environment, that you need to feel creative and inspired and motivated, things start to fall into place. And I kept reminding myself, Tracy, when you got that apartment, you were so freaked out, you were paying more money than you ever had in your life and your rent doubled literally overnight, you didn't know how you're going to pay for it. You just went out in a leap of faith knowing that when you changed your environment, that something big was going to happen. And it put me on this trajectory of growth. And many of you were around when I moved into that apartment, hopefully you're still listening to the show or in our communities. And I got so much support. And I remember because I tell this story a lot. Karina Harris, he's one of our star students over here. She, last year, you know, during the pandemic had to reduce our workforce, on purpose because of the pandemic and working together had one of our best years in business, but also was at this precipice.
She's like, I think I want to change my living situation. And it's scaring me because I'm about to make a big move like you did and like double my rent. Well, the thing that was so awesome is that she moved into that place. And two weeks later, she met the guy that she's dating now, and her business is doing great, and everything took off. And so you just don't know what will happen when you change your environment. So I'm not suggesting that you move or do a huge remodel or anything. But take a look around where you're working? And are you able to just create a corner for yourself something that feels good, where you can create your environment that feels inspiring and creative, because that is going to be the thing that's going to motivate you to take that next level and that next leap? Does that make sense? I hope so. So first you create your environment, then your environment creates you. Thank you Jason for that. And thank you for sticking with me when I was such a pain in the ass for wanting to change all the things in your house. And now I'm getting my new corporate apartment, so it's all good. Anyway, I have one more funny story about this. I told my brother because it's my 50th birthday. And so a couple of my family members are flying into town and I was like telling my sister my one of my brothers, you guys can stay at my place. Because I'll just be with Jason and someone can stay with us in Fountain Hills. And one of my brothers calls me He's like, what's going on?
Are you guys breaking up? Because? Because he thinks like, just because I'm getting this corporate apartment that we're like splitting up. I'm like, No, we're good. This is actually going to be so much better for our relationship because we're both gonna have have a dedicated space to work from, it's going to be awesome. And part of my reasoning for wanting to get this corporate apartment is so that I can have host VIPs and have VIP days there, where I do strategy sessions with my clients in that apartment. And I'm going to start offering those in June. So if you're someone who's interested in just a little seed pop there, you can come meet up with me in Scottsdale, and you'll have a place to stay. And we can do strategy sessions. So you can just reach out to me directly on social if that's something you're interested in.
So number eight, my final thing is working hard does not lead to success. Here's the thing you need to celebrate. You need to have fun. And when it's hard, you got to stop working. Yes, building a business is hard work. But just working hard is not going to get you what you want. This is where it becomes really important important. When you ask yourself the question, am I operating out of choice? Or am I operating out of obligation. And man, you know the difference when you're operating out of obligation, because it is not fun, it feels laborious. It feels stressful, you feel overwhelmed, things are not going your way, and you are running ragged. And so this is a time to do a little check in Jason actually hosted our Momentum mindset call on Monday about this topic. And he kept using the it was the topic was actually about resistance. But it was also about operating out of a place of choice versus a place of obligation. And he is someone who knows that very well. He's been on a journey of trying to get to a place in business where he's operating out of a place of choice, instead of obligation, because he would always get himself caught up in these situations where he wasn't getting valued.
Because he is a brilliant business adviser, like the guy is, has done so much for my business, even before we started dating, he's like, really, really good. And an amazing mentor. And I'm really excited for him, because he's starting his own mastermind group for visionaries and integrators, to help them grow their companies. So it's, it's just incredible and amazing. So with that being said, the realization you know, that, that I want you to come to that he's had to come to you that I've had to come to is just working hard for just to work hard and in and of itself is not the thing that's going to help you get to your next level. It's really about integrating fun and aligning what you're doing with what matters most to you. And that bigger vision that you're casting. So this has been a year of healing. For me, I have been triggered AF by so many things being in a relationship, moving, dealing with childhood trauma, all this stuff has been a real thing for me. And I don't usually talk about my this deep into my personal life on the podcast. But I felt like the 300th episode of the podcast was a good reason, good enough reason to do that. I just want to remind you that I'm giving away an epic gift for you. In honor of our 300th episode, it is My Aligned Vision Workbook. And it is all it's designed to help you develop bigger ideas for yourself. And then align your business with how you want your life to look, this is the key thing here. It is free. But I just want to ask you a favor in exchange. And that is to give the podcast a rating and review. And obviously, a better the best rating and review is to get a five star rating. And the reason why I'm doing this push for the ratings and reviews is because we're really trying to get to a million downloads. And what happens when you rate and review the podcast is that it pushes out the podcast to other people like you who have similar listening styles and habits, maybe people who are in the jewelry or product industries who want to learn more about running a successful business. And so that would be super helpful. So if you if you're interested in learning more about this, all you have to do is head on over to Apple podcasts rate and review the podcast we're gonna have instructions in the show notes on how to do that. And then take a screenshot of your rating and review. And you can do this on another platform too. So if you're on Stitcher or something else, where they do allow for ratings and reviews, certainly, you can do it there as well take a screenshot, and you're going to head on over to flourishthriveacademy.com/podcastreview and there I'm going to share with you how to upload it and get your My Aligned Vision Workbook. So that's all for now. And once again, I want to remind you that I'm also hosting a very special workshop called The Creatives Rule the World workshop. It is something that I normally would charge about $2,000 for but we're doing this in an in a short intensive environment on May 18th. It's how to align, validate and produce winning ideas that propel your business forward. And it is going to be amazing. So if you're interested in learning more about that head on over to flourishthriveacademy.com/workshop It is value priced, and it's like literally a steal. I'm practically giving it away for free.
