Hiii, I’m Trish from Chromatical. I help digital business owners turn their high energy, live launching business model into a low energy version that can continue to run, even if they stop. After being forced to take a year off due to a surprise illness that debilitated me, I couldn’t live launch anymore. And because my business was built on the live launch model that required me to show up, I couldn’t. So revenue stopped. As the sole provider for my family, that was tough. I realised so many others had stopped business in a day from being surprised or hit with things out of their control, and like me, if they had a smarter business model in place, they could’ve kept going while they recovered. So now I teach a business model that I created specifically to work with me when I couldn’t show up. It’s a mash up of evergreen and low energy launching, but designed through the lens of someone who literally couldn’t do anything in business. So it’s catered to literally all energy types. The program comes with options to all facets of running digital businesses (like an exercise class, there are options to support injured people), to support people at whatever energy level they’re at now, or could be in the future, so they can scale down or scale up their sales and delivery wherever they’re at in life, energy and ability wise.

@Aime Miyamoto thanks so much ❤️
Mental health got me
I've just spent 2+ weeks with my computer completely shut (and longer than that before that with it only partly open) and I'm starting to come back slowly. I spent the past 2 weeks completely away from business. I went thrifting every day. Started a second hobby Tiktok to document it all. Pressure free. Just for the joy and connection and creativity. I allowed myself space and time to do whatever I needed to do to look after myself. In my past business model I would never have been able to do that. I was controlled by deadlines and launches and 'showing up' and promises. As you're creating your offers, can I recommend 1 or 2 things. 1. Build your offer delivery in ways that give you this flexibility to take unplanned time off if you need. Evergreen really is your best friend for this. Listen to everything Mariah says around this. 2. Create a really strong plan that is actionable by someone other than you, should you need to take immediate time off for any reason. Something that makes sure everything that needs to get taken care of, all your promises etc are sorted and you have the ability to close the computer and look after yourself. It often doesn't feels like a top priority until you need it. And that's when it's too late and you have to push through it all yourself when you have the least ability to and you risk burnout or worse. The value of being able to step away from business when you need is unmatched to anything else. It is a bigger priority than sales IMO. When you hear people talking about evergreen and selling on autopilot etc... and if you ever question the ethics of it, remember to consider how whether it's ethical to push yourself to the point of burning out/ mental health issues/stress etc to do what you do. Is it ethical to push through selling in other ways when you are physically and mentally destroying yourself doing so? No. Give yourself the permission to look after yourself by prioritising business models that allow you to sustainably sell. I can't tell you how grateful I am that I was able to step away for the past while without my clients being impacted negatively.

Cleaning up cold email subscribers 🧹
I am FINALLY "cleaning up" my list by removing cold subscribers who don't raise their hand to stay on our list. Over the next week or so, I am sending 3 emails to a huge segment of subscribers who haven't opened our emails in a while. Giving them one last chance to let us know they'd like to stay on our newsletter... Then we're removing them! I always thought this process would be super scary. I avoided it for so long (literally this has been on my list for years, and has been at the top of my list for 9 months while I diligently ignored it and bumped it to next month 10 times). But now that I'm doing it, it's really not that bad! I wrote the 3 emails. Created a "link trigger" in Convertkit for people who want to stay on to click. And I sent the first one out this morning. Would it be helpful to you all to see the emails I sent after I'm done with this process? Personally I found that every example email copy and template I found online wasn't that great and sounded really formal/awkward, so I wrote my own to match our brand voice. Happy to share them as I'm sending these over the next week if it's helpful as an example!

Yes! Love this. It’s been on my list too but like you said the examples out there haven’t been great or they’re heavily ecommerce focused so it got put in the too hard basket. Thanks for sharing!

@Eliisa Kuusela @Mariah Coz shared a great way of doing that in Skool with the ‘pin to module’ concept that I’m starting to do the same with for my podcast. Whenever theres a post you like, you can essentially create a module (lesson) for it in a course you have, and it’s then saved there for people to reference later.

@Marisa Pell I love that use case!

@Marisa Pell it’s slower in engagement than anticipated. But I don’t doubt it, I think it’s just a matter of some momentum being built and people seeing what it could be. I believe there’s a bit of ‘ugh another community’ feelings with people at the moment and there’s a preconceived idea about what that means as they’ve experienced many. So I’m focusing and really leaning into the differences so people recognise it as different and want to get involved. Small steps forward, but I know it’ll work long term, so I’m not worried.
