If you like harmony and you like effortless this is our number one resource. http://clearlyconscious.ca/consciousmarketingpodcast/ Here are Nichole's three tips for exploring tools to expand consciousness. 1) You don't need any tools. Your consciousness is within you. You are the only one with the answers you seek. Go within and know that you have access to everything you need. 2) Start with a tool that selects you. Go to your local metaphysical shop and see what pops out at you. I had a crystal literally jump out of my hand and break on the floor so I would buy it. 3) Focus on what's free and then set a budget and stick to it. You can go overboard on the latest "conscious" tools and the truth is you don't have to have them. So before you go break the bank on crystals, oils and the latest wand set a budget each week or each month and stick to it. When your tools are no longer useful for you...clear their energy and then pass them on to someone who can use them. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Public Scandal and The Shame Game
In this episode Nichole and Todd break the mold and talk about some serious issues facing the industry. We tackle some of the toughest questions facing marketers who have had a conscious awakening. How can companies consciously handle "scandal"? How can we have accountability without public shaming? How can we honor the women who are affected and prevent it from happening again? What evidence of conscious truth should journalists be held accountable to? How should media outlets be held accountable for conscious truth? How can we end public shaming? What if you are the target of shaming? How can we handle it consciously? Then here how a scandal affected one of Nichole's mentors and how she recommends handling it. Here are Nichole's 3 tips for dealing with public scandal and the shame game. 1) End shaming - in reporting, in advertising, and in your content. There is simply no excuse for shaming another human regardless of their infraction. Show love and understanding for all those involved. 2) Hold a higher standard for your organization - if you find out there is something that isn't ethical happening or crosses a line of conscious behavior then own it...and take action to rectify it. 3) Address the culture issue - Go beyond the person who offended and the person who was offended and think about how the culture of your organization supported this behavior. Consider who was aware and didn't report it and take action on all sides. Strong action and an honest conversation with staff about what happened, how it happened and what is going to change to prevent it are critical.

Encourage people to be the change they wish to see in the world and show stories of humans who are doing it. Celebrate heroes who have integrity and are authentic examples of what we want more of on this planet. 3) Be a Healer.

Conscious Marketing Podcast - Episode 003
Targeting the right customer at the right time with the right ad is 90% of the marketing game, but what if that targeting perpetuates stigma more than expansion? In this episode we tackle some of the toughest questions facing marketers who have had a conscious awakening. Is segmentation helpful for the collective? How can segmentation empower? How can segmentation disempower? Are we perpetuating stereotypes or connecting authentically? Three tips - 1) Segment to Empower - Choose an audience segment you can make a tangible impact on through inspiration, motivation and empowerment 2) Deliver Inspiration - Create marketing pieces that inspire and motivate each human soul to connect with it's true essence, to step into it's true greatness, to be itself unapologetically. Create a sacred space for humanity to step into itself 3) Measure Connection - Measure return on investment and profit as you always would and add in a measure for connection and inspiration. Measure the energetic response to the piece through language. Create a word cloud of all the posts/shares/comments and see what language bubbles to the top. Did you inspire? Or did you spread disempowerment? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
