You’ve been wandering in the wilderness, not sure where you are or where you are headed. The path you’ve been following doesn’t appear to be taking you anywhere. 

Then off in the distance, you see a warm glow. As you come closer you discover a welcoming mountain cabin. Depending on the season, you may discover a warm, cozy fire or fresh flowers and the windows thrown open for fresh air.

As soon as you walk in, you are invited to pull up an armchair or a find a big pillow on the floor. Nestle in. Join one of the conversations in the main gathering room or in the sitting room down the hall. Or if it’s warm enough, move out into the natural gardens to enjoy the inspiring views and discover the network of paths with signs and guideposts.

When you are ready to explore, wander through the halls to find a nook that feels soothing, creative, and inspiring to you. You are welcome to design it just the way you want. Visit any time you like to recharge, meditate, write, create, plan, or dream.

Coming together as a group brings many benefits.

Knowing you are no longer
alone in your journey

Just knowing you are on this journey with others brings a sense of relief and hope.

You will have plenty of opportunities to share ideas, ask for brainstorming or feedback, and partner with each other to talk about your work. You might even meet kindred spirits who are aligned in some way with the work you do.

There are spaces for sharing, learning, co-creating, asking new questions, sparking new ideas, skill-building, harvesting your wisdom, discovering tips and strategies, and expanding how you see yourself, your work, and your business.

  • We gather in a private group on a dedicated, virtual platform without distractions.

  • For group meetings we gather together via Zoom. All events are recorded if you can’t make the event or you want to listen again. You may join these events via computer or phone.

  • We’ll also create ways for you to partner with others if that’s what you desire. Sometimes sharing your ideas with someone else is the ideal way to gain new insights, refine your ideas, and see elements of your work that you have never considered before.


tapping into the group as a
container for your creative work

Up until now you’ve been investing a lot of time and energy in finding your own way forward. It’s been up to you to set your plan and figure out your path.

Within the Deepening Your Roots Mentoring Group, you’ll find several gentle structures and opportunities created to hold space for you as you develop your work.

  • Relax into the journey knowing that you are supported and guided each step of the way.

  • Find new ways to create windows of time and space for developing your work.

  • Visit the appropriate topic areas to take in inspiring and engaging posts.

  • Attend planned community events on Zoom that always include time to work on your new work, business model, and offers.

  • Review the maps and worksheets when you want new insights about your next steps.

  • Schedule a private session with Carol to boost your momentum and clarity.

Whether you work best on your own or you prefer to gather with others to boost your creativity and insights, you’ll find opportunities to approach your work with new catalyst questions, newly learned skills, and an array of guiding maps and milestones.

We all work together to create a safe, honoring space for creativity, personal evolution, and the evolution of our work

  • The creative process and your idea have their own development timeline. You will not be rushed, hurried or diminished in any way based on how your journey is unfolding.

  • We all commit to a culture of confidentiality, heart-felt witnessing, and honoring and respecting others’ ideas and intellectual property.

  • Guidelines for the community are clearly posted and updated as warranted as our community grows and evolves.

How Does the Deepen Your Roots
Mentoring Group Work?

The structure, resources, and support built into the Deepen Your Roots Mentoring Group are designed and implemented to support you in strengthening your experience of each of these three threads.

Understanding the journey to evolve your work

In the next three sections I describe:

  • How your journey will improve when you are more deeply rooted in these three threads

  • The elements of the program associated with each thread that will help you transform your idea with potential into a viable business.

Thread 1: Your Journey-Finding Your Way Forward

If you’ve made it this far, you know you feel called to evolve you work,
but you may be spending an inordinate amount of time
figuring out how to get where you want to go.

This is a costly way to make progress.

When you are rooted in the wisdom
of the Evolve Your Work Journey, you’ll:

The Journey to Evolve Your Work

The Journey to Evolve Your Work

  • Understand how to turn your idea with potential into a viable business (without using the Build Your Business Path or the Solo Off-Road Wilderness Path).

  • Know how to use the milestones on the map to guide your way forward. With this information you’ll avoid getting lost, derailing, losing faith, or abandoning your work.

  • Save money. When you know more about the journey, you won’t invest in training or coaching prematurely. You’ll invest when you are ready for the support you know you need next.

  • Save time. When you try to implement out of order, you lose momentum and your return on investment nose-dives. Then, in frustration, you spend too much time wondering whether you should just give up. Instead, focusing on taking the best steps in the right order means you know what to do and when to do it.

  • Reduce the mental and emotional anguish you feel. Avoid the pain and frustration of confusion, overwhelm and worry.

  • Know where you stand with your foundation. At any given time, you’ll know where to focus your attention to make the most progress and receive the most insights.


What’s included in the Program to help you navigate the journey with more ease and clarity

In addition to the tips, strategies, and guidance I post in the community to give you inspirational boosts and tactical ideas about the steps involved in evolving your work, we also have several ongoing structures to keep you moving forward:

  • We have a check-in space where we each set a focus for the week and return at the end of the week to celebrate our wins and find wisdom in anything that didn’t unfold as planned. It’s inspiring for all of us to watch our momentum grow!

  • You can visit the course materials any time to see the big picture and create a deep understanding of the framework for evolving your work. Here you’ll find maps of your journey, understand the best order of activities, and answer questions that help you discern where you are in the process.

  • Each month we gather on Zoom to help you sort out where you are in your journey.

a.  Clarify Your Foundation – I offer this event as an orientation for new members and a check-in for existing members. The more you know about where you are, the easier it will be to focus on the right tasks to clarify and develop your new work.

b.  Periodic Zoom workshops and discussions, based on topics that are alive in the group interactions.

Thread 2: Your Content - Making Decisions about Your Work

You know it’s time to develop your new body of work, new business model,
and new offers, but you have no idea how to do that.

Without having a clear sense of the steps you need to take,
you can waste a significant amount of time.


When you are rooted in the
content of your new work, you:

Develop_Work.jpg
  • Create clarity proactively rather than passively waiting for it to arrive.

  • Evolve your work with a sense of unfolding discovery rather than a forced push to hit a big-stretch goal.

  • Gather feedback about your concepts and offers early and often — before you go live in a big way.

  • Generate income as soon as possible through exploratory offers, experiments, and beta offerings while avoiding the crash and burn experience associated with prematurely launching new, untested offers.

  • Have deep confidence in yourself, your work, and the results you can create for your clients.

  • Have a clear knowing that you are doing the work you are meant to be doing, feeling fulfilled and satisfied by making a difference with your work.

  • Build a more solid understanding of your work and how it impacts clients so that you can strengthen and deepen your marketing messages and materials. With a marketing presence that aligns with your work, you’ll experience a more effective rollout of your new work.


What’s included in the Program to help you Evolve Your New Work with more ease and clarity

Evolving a new body of work is far more complex than creating a x-step program or slapping an eBook together. To create a deep work that fulfills you and your clients requires that you create and nurture a deeply intimate relationship with the work you do with clients.

Your clarity and deep knowing about your work will appear in layers, one after the other. When you follow the order illustrated in the Evolve Your Work Map, you’ll experience the most organic growth.

That’s not to say that the process is linear. It is not! Instead it’s a corkscrew spiral that allows you to revisit and refine every layer of your work as you gain more and more clarity.


The Deepen Your Roots Mentoring Group has several ongoing structures to keep you moving forward:

  • To stay focused on the tasks that will create the most momentum, refer to the Worksheets that lay out the key points of clarity associated with each phase of your journey.

    • You and Your Style

    • Your Idea / Core Focus

    • Your Body of Work

    • Your Business Model

    • Your Offers

    • Your Presence

    • Your Strategies to Share Your Work with the World and Grow

  • Visit the discussion area for each worksheet to ask questions to clarify the elements that make up that phase of your journey. You are also invited to share new insights or ask for feedback from the group on something you’ve uncovered or created. I’ll be there as well to provide feedback, ask questions, and point you in the right direction.

  • Each month we’ll have several Experiential Zoom Events to give you a container of time and space to focus on developing your new work with the support of questions, guidance, and skill-building activities. A few examples:

Deepening Sessions – A 2 to 3-hour Zoom community call one or two times a month to dive into a key aspect of evolving your work. I offer some guidance on the session’s topic and purpose and provide periodic prompts that you can use to spark your own thinking and development. Each call includes opportunities to share your experience, gather ideas and feedback, and claim your results.

Worksheet Workdays – A 2-hour Zoom community call where you focus on the Worksheet that’s most relevant to your journey. We’ll alternate between having personal time to think and write, coming together to share your insights, and exploring next steps that are customized for your situation.

Experiment Experiences – Each month I provide the container for each of us to run a small, easy-to-create experiment. These 45-60 minute calls will be on Mondays (and recorded). In each step I’ll provide guidance, coaching support, and insights as well as facilitate group discussions to help us all deepen what we know about using experiments to evolve our work.

o Week 1: Identify and frame your experiment

o   Week 2: Plan your experiment

o   Week 3: Do your experiment

o   Week 4: Gather feedback and refine your work

 

Thread 3: Your Perspective -Harvesting Your Wisdom

When you hit bumps in your journey, it is easy to get thrown off course.

How do you glean the wisdom and insights from those experiences?

Without a way to get back on track,
you will get derailed and lose your momentum.


When you are rooted in your capacity to
spot wisdom in your experiences, you wil

Perspective-1906534_1920_adj.jpg
  • Heal old patterns that have sabotaged your progress in the past.

  • Save the time, energy, and emotions that you’ve expended in the past whenever you’ve followed that downward spiral and had to climb back out again and again and again!

  • Connect with your own nuanced signals and signs to such a degree that you’ll be able to use them to create a deeply intimate relationship with your work.

  • Awaken new levels of your creativity and learn how to evolve your work organically at every step of your journey. 

  • Stay on track more of the time. Without the detours, you’ll go deeper in developing your work and make more progress, more quickly.

  • Build a sense of confidence in yourself, your work, and your offers that won’t erode when you hit a bump on your journey.


What’s included in the Program To help you Harvest the Wisdom of Your Journey with more ease and clarity

When something doesn’t go as planned, it’s easy to get derailed. Based on my own experience and my work with clients, I’ve created a list of 30 emotions and scenarios that have the potential to send us spiraling into self-doubt, self-blame, and struggle.

  • Each week we focus on a specific scenario or emotion that has the potential to take us off course. Think: Confusion, Overwhelm, Procrastination, Anxiety, Perfection, etc.

  • As a community we use stories, specific strategies, and five simple prompts to explore our relationship with the week’s focus and discover actions we can take to turn a trigger emotion into wisdom:

o   Have you experienced this trigger recently?

o   How has this trigger appeared in your life and work in the past?

o   Where can you find wisdom in the situation?

o   How will you spot it earlier next time?

o   What have you discovered during the week?

  • Then we tap into the community wisdom to learn from each other. It’s amazing to watch how these simple prompts and stories about the theme inspire insights and discoveries for each member of the community.
