A heartfelt hello and welcome to my inaugural Ezine!
I can’t believe its finally happening! I’m no longer an Ezine virgin! Pardon the analogy but I can’t come up with anything more appropriate, having anticipated this moment what seemed like an eternity. 😉
Some of you on my virgin list are my clients, colleagues, associates, affiliates and friends. You are the most amazing champions and the reason why I’m here! Thank you for believing in me and holding the space for my gifts to emerge.
Some of you have read my chapter in Lisa Sasevich’s book “The Live Sassy Formula, Make Big Money and a Big Difference Doing What You Love”–and are actually inviting me into your world. Wow. What an honor. I feel deeply blessed that we were brought together in this way, and am excited to learn more about you and the soulful passions we have in common. I know this is the perfect time to be joining forces as we all help each other to build a purpose-driven economy. Welcome!
And some of you are going Sabine-who? I know, I know! You actually signed up a while ago on my old PowerReinvention site and have never heard from me since. I’m not proud that I never communicated with you until now. But you know what, at least I didn’t make you go on a zick-zack newsletter self-discovery journey with me. I hope you stick around! I have my ducks in a row now, and they are the right ones to boot. 😉
So what can you all expect from this Ezine?
So everyone, welcome to the world of Soul Purpose Branding!
How I got to practice my public speaking on stages in Canada and the U.S.
Expanding into my highest potential has been a life-long pursuit of mine, which means stretching beyond my comfort zone most of the times. However there’s one area of personal growth that I’ve avoided like the plague: public speaking. Perhaps its because I used to stutter as child or perhaps because English isn’t my first language. Whatever the old excuses, they are so out the window!
One month ago my trailblazer-mentor Andrea J. Lee gave me an extraordinary break-through opportunity! I got to have 2 minutes of TV fame at a Canadian Television Station in Downtown Vancouver, followed by a Paparazzi photo opportunity. Can you imagine? All exclusively arranged for an intimate, hand-selected crowd of 100 entrepreneurs or so attending the annual Wealthy Thought Leader Event that was broadcast worldwide via Simulcast. I was determined to make this “Throw Down Opportunity” my debut! Big time! I wore my golden dress and delivered a PURE GOLDEN message to the T and to the second. It was so empowering! And best of all, I didn’t suck.
Then two weeks ago I had yet two more opportunities on the main stage at the sold-out Speak-To-Sell event hosted by my beloved mentor Lisa Sasevich in Las Vegas. I was one of the fortunate 27 co-authors who got honored and celebrated on stage in front of hundreds of attendees. As if that wasn’t enough I was also given the privilege to serve as a Simulcast MC which was a lot of fun! I felt for the first time in my life what it means to “be known” by a larger crowd. When I introduced myself at Speak-To-Sell, so many people said “Sabine Messner, oh I know this name! I read your chapter! Yours was my favorite chapter! Can you please sign my book?”
So now that I’m broken in, and starting to like this public speaking thing, I’m ready to hop on more stages, virtual or not! Got a stage?
“After years of struggle Sabine pulled it all together for me! Now speaking my truth, living my passion and launching the business of my life is no longer an ordeal for me.”
That’s what my client Kay Loughrey said about her Brand Break-Through Virtual 2-Day VIP Package which is a fast, joyful and empowering way for clients to end years of misery, and lots of money wasted going around in circles trying to figure out what to call themselves, their work and their business. I help them capture their inner truth in a brand of a lifetime. Kay continues:
“Sabine led me back to my heart and showed me how to express it in everything I do. Everything that I’ve been talking about and trying to get out into the world for years and years is finally beautifully articulated in a brand that I can even trademark! It’s the perfect match for my personality, my experience and my ideal client. I can finally embrace more of a whole “Me” and what I can offer in business. Plus I have a tagline, slogan, expert title, mission statement and so much more, including the perfect story for my signature talk! A great breakthrough!”

How I Got To Be Bestselling Author On My Birthday
My mentor Lisa Sasevich has identified a universal pattern in the rise of most successful leaders. No matter who they are or what they do, there seems to be a 3-year process until they’re able to establish themselves as influencers on a grander scale. “In year 1 you build your business foundation.” You discover your unique gifts, package your expertise, brand yourself and get your team, tools and tactics in place. “In year 2 you’re everywhere”–you’ve got your signature talk and product offerings ready, and you speak, speak, speak. This enables you then “in year 3 to cash in on your mojo!” as Lisa calls it.
There was only one problem. I was in year 2 and feeling pretty stage-fried. Read the full article here…
Newsletters are dead. Long live Ezines!
During my time of deliberate Ezine abstinence, I’ve received (and studied) many Ezines (also spelled E-zines). I’ve also received–God forbid!–a few “Newsletters” still, some even with the same monthly subject line reading “May Newsletter” or “June Newsletter.” Oj! If you’re reading this, you know who you are! I love you to death but I gotta tell you Newsletters are even more antiquated than web 1.0. Instead of propelling your biz forward they tend to make you look out-of-date and plain old-fashioned. Therefore start conceptualizing your beautiful new Ezine and watch your business blossom! In one of my next Ezines I will write an entire article on this important topic. In the meantime here’s what I want you think about if you don’t already publish an Ezine:
Oh, and here is a HUGE tip on how to avoid the most common mistake business owners make! Don’t take your company logo and turn it into an Ezine header! Just don’t. Realize when people open their inbox they want to connect with other individuals, not a business. Case in point advertising in other media isn’t as much of an assault as it is in one’s personal inbox. We all have experienced this first-hand: well-intended company newsletters from service providers we respect often come across like spam. When people open emails they want to see faces not logos. Think about it. That’s why its time you start serving your audience with highly personalized, highly specialized and highly branded content through an exciting Ezine format. It’s time for Ezine evolution! More on that in one of my next issues…
Oh, and yes I do design Ezines but only for my Private Platinum clients. It’s a quintessential part of their Online Brand Art Kit.
The Live Sassy Formula–Make Big Money and a Big Difference Doing What You Love!
Here’s how I feel about this book: I want everyone I know and love to read it. That simple. And yes, my story is in chapter two “Say What You Do.” 🙂
If you live your spiritual dream and are broke, read it. If you’re thinking of living your entrepreneurial dream and don’t know how to go about it, read it. If you want to change the world and start by changing yourself, read it. If you’ve been laid off and are (still?) floundering, read it. If you want to laugh and cry and be inspired and invigorated by people’s bravery and consequently also by their successes, read it. And if you’re still not convinced to jump into action, then how about this simple math exercise: for 0.04% of the investment that it would normally take to get your hands on Lisa Sasevich’s wisdom via her most basic, entry-level mastermind program, you can get access for $10.62 on Amazon right now. Duh!
Meet Rosemary Sneeringer–The Book Nurturer
I have the fantastic fortune to work with some of the best experts in their respective fields. No exaggeration. In working with Rosemary I got to meet not only an extraordinary expert but also discover a true gem. In her line of work Rosemary is a gift from God. That’s “literally” how I see her. Lisa Sasevich selected Rosemary Sneeringer as her book adviser for The Live Sassy Formula, which has been barely on the market and is already an international bestseller. Rosemary helps give birth to the wisdom that’s buried inside of you, and helps you turn it into a book that people want to read. As one of the lucky 27 co-authors, I got to experience her tremendous gift myself as she helped me make my story and chapter contribution a million times better. She also helped identify where every author belongs in the book so each story builds on the other, and everything works together for the most impact. If you’ve ever collaborated on a joint book project, you know how challenging and time-consuming that can be! Just that aspect of her work alone is priceless!
