Weekly Roundup - March 9, 2018

Design+Style Visibility Warrior Dixie Willard

Are you ready to become a Visibility Warrior? 

Dixie here! I cannot begin to tell you how fired up I am about sharing our Visibility Warrior course with you. The feeling of stepping into your visibility role and making a difference in your business and in your life is unbelievably powerful. Especially when you're like me and you never thought you'd never stop feeling like the 12-year-old version of yourself.

It's taken me years to go from that shy, reserved, introverted awkward turtle (who really didn't understand people AT ALL) to someone who feels confident and strong and has real relationships throughout her community. It hasn't been easy - and I have made a million mistakes along the way - but I did it!

What I love most about our Visibility Warrior course is that YOU can learn from MY mistakes instead of doing it the hard way. Rachel and I have taken all of our training, education, experience, and bumps in the road and put together a comprehensive program that has the information you need to get REAL results.

It's more than just the tools, tips, and tricks we use - it's how we changed our mindset, the way we studied our businesses and our clients, and how we stay on track. (Just in case you were wondering, this is a course FOR introverts and awkward turtles BY introverts and awkward turtles.)

We've taken the time to make sure all of that info is in the right order to make your progress as smooth and effective as possible. And since we know that different people have different learning styles, our lessons have video, audio, and print versions along with worksheets you can write in. We've also added in some amazing extras to help keep you accountable and motivated.

I want you to know how incredible it feels to stand tall and strong and assured. To know that you are making a difference in your community. To take your business and yourself from INvisible to magnificently visible. To boldly take advantage of all the opportunities that visibility brings.

If you're ready to embrace all that you are and be the warrior we know you to be, you're not going to want to miss this! Enrollment is only open until 11:59 PM Eastern (8:59 PM Pacific) on March 15, 2018. 

Come be a warrior with me!
