We Are The Culture Makers

What’s a Culture Maker? You don’t have to have a fancy title or an artsy career to be a culture-maker (but you can if you want to!). When you get brave and go first and...

Every week, I send you a

Sunday Love Letter

I write them so that…

  1. You remember your culture-making power
  2. You have the inspiration + tools you need to grow a future in which we all flourish
Are you in?

There's this narrative out there that says that being committed to justice will harm your business.⁠
⁠
I know from experience -- from working with thousands of feminist entrepreneurs and organizations -- that this is just not true.⁠
⁠
I know that when you invent language to describe lived  experiences we don't have words for, you're making a cultural contribution. You're helping move us forward into a culture where all of our experiences are recognized and understood.⁠
⁠
You're co-creating the language of justice and the language of the future.⁠
⁠
AND...when you define language specific to your body of work, you make your work more concrete and tangible to your audience + clients. You SUBSTANTIATE it.⁠
⁠
That's a brand asset. That's good for business. That helps people say yes to your offers.⁠
⁠
Developing the language you need to explain your complex work is good culture-making AND it's good for business.⁠
⁠
That's why I've been teaching these mini-lessons here on IG this week to help you build your language and build out your body of work.⁠
⁠
Because we CAN build businesses around who we are, what we believe, and the future we're dreaming of.⁠
⁠
And when we do, we lead from our strengths and principles. ⁠
⁠
There's endless energy and passion there. There's wisdom there. There's invitation. There's SUBSTANCE and skill.⁠
⁠
And all of that is pure rocket fuel for our businesses and our culture-making.⁠

I'm Kelly Diels. I teach feminist entrepreneurs & culture-makers a new model for marketing and copywriting that is EFFECTIVE and non-exploitative.  #feministcopywriting⁠ #MoreImpactLessHarm
We can do it our way, I promise.⁠
⁠
We don't have to lead with pain and shame.⁠
⁠
We can write sales copy that and marketing materials that bear loving witness to the actual problem...⁠
⁠
...AND IT'S NOT THE CLIENT. ⁠
⁠
It's the circumstances and system they're navigating.⁠
⁠
Our job, as a *principled* entrepreneurs who care about our cultural impact, is to bear loving witness to that challenge. Let readers of your copy know that you have a framework or process that can help them do it differently, ON THEIR TERMS.⁠
⁠
And then, instead of being subconsciously triggered into a buying decision, they can make an explicit, conscious, POWERFUL decision to work with you.⁠
⁠
This deliberate decision can be the first step in the work they're committing to.⁠
⁠
Which means that our sales funnels and copy can be the first step in the transformational work we do with clients...⁠
⁠
...rather than in opposition to it. ⁠#Aligned #CopywritingForCultureMakers⁠

We talked about this yesterday...⁠
⁠
IMHO, Multipassionate Makers study all.the.things because they are gathering the full range of tools and modalities needed to solve a complex social problem.⁠
⁠
🌺What you are NOT doing: being flaky or distractible or indulging in 'shiny object syndrome'. ⁠
⁠
🌺What you ARE doing: making a whole new thing. You've been synthesizing across traditions and intuitively developing a nuanced, sensitive  methodology designed to produce a particular transformation.⁠
⁠
That thing you've been making, intuitively: it's real. There's a process and a framework there.⁠
⁠
Our challenge is to raise your internal, intuitive process to the level of consciousness, so you can turn it into a FORMAL, repeatable process that you teach other people.⁠
⁠
We need to get it out of your muscle-memory and into a teachable, shareable system.⁠
⁠
I call this process *Surfacing Your Methodology*. ⁠
⁠
To surface your methodology, we need to go in, determine the core set of skills you're teaching across all your modalities, and what the central outcome is. We need to explicitly map it out.⁠
⁠
And then we need to name this wondrous thing you've created.⁠
⁠
Once you name your methodology, you can see how everything you've trained in has led up to this, and prepared you for this work. ⁠
⁠
It then gets a lot easier to explain it to other people, and a lot more obvious why they might want to buy it :)⁠
⁠
Mapping out and naming your methodology makes your work REAL. ⁠
⁠
(To you and to other people.)⁠
⁠
It also makes it TEACHABLE.⁠
⁠
And that's the point of all your seeking and learning and dreaming and doing, across time.⁠
⁠
Because, dear Multipassionate Maker, you're NOT spinning your wheels. You're growing the solutions and institutions of the future.⁠
⁠
*******⁠
⁠
If you'd like some help Surfacing Your Methodology, I have a 3-hour training that can help you do that. Link in profile to get it!⁠

Maybe you don't have Shiny Object Syndrome.⁠
⁠
Maybe you've been studying & practicing all of these modalities because you're developing a rich body of work, across time.⁠
⁠
No maybe about it.⁠
⁠
⁠🌺🌺🌺⁠
Multi-passionate professionals often get told that they're "scattered" & need to focus and then internalize those negative messages...⁠
⁠
...the ones telling them that their orientation towards lifelong learning, curiosity & creativity is a barrier to success.⁠
⁠
It's NOT. ⁠
⁠
In fact that's EXACTLY how we build the deep work & creative solutions needed for these urgent times.⁠
⁠
⁠🌺🌺🌺⁠
Often, when multi-passionate professionals come to me, it's wildly evident to me that they've been collecting tools & synthesizing across traditions  in order to solve complex social problems.⁠
⁠
The result? A whole new methodology.⁠
⁠
But often, we can't see that. Instead, our diverse modalities & certifications look like independent silos.⁠
⁠
Over here, birth work. Over here, facilitation training. Over here, an Masters's of Fine Art. ⁠
⁠
But what if they're not standalone, silo-ed services? ⁠
⁠
What if, instead, they're the NECESSARY tools and skills that you use TOGETHER to solve a higher-level social problem?⁠
⁠
What if you gathered them because no one of them did the trick, alone;  so you kept looking and learning?⁠
⁠
 What if they're all part of one integrated thing...⁠
⁠
...AKA your methodology? ⁠
⁠
⁠🌺🌺🌺⁠
In other words: ⁠
⁠
1)Take those services out of their never-the-twain-shall-meet silos. ⁠
⁠
2) Integrate them into ONE methodology and ONE service/program.⁠
⁠
This is what all your work has been adding up to, across time.⁠
⁠
So nope, dear Multipassionate Maker, you're NOT a "flake". ⁠
⁠
You are NOT spinning your wheels. ⁠
⁠
Instead, you're growing the solutions and institutions of the future.⁠
