FLORA - SIDE ELEMENT 04

Yes, you can grow a flourishing business without compromising your anti-oppressive beliefs.

In fact, you can bake culture-making practices into your business…
…so that you make GOOD money while also creating equity, inclusion, and social change.

This is about money AND justice.

In Flora, we work together closely over the course of eight months to build you a strong foundation for a business that is your countercultural leverage & legacy.

When I say legacy, I’m talking about everything that matters to us as socially-conscious entrepreneurs.

Healing. Paving the way for the next generation. Refusing to exploit each other for a profit. Shifting our culture towards love and justice.

And yes, building collective power and generational wealth.

Building a Culture-Making Business is never an overnight makeover story.

It’s never a formulaic recipe.

There is no hack for developing deep intellectual property and culture-making business infrastructures.

Instead, there is thought partnering; business modeling; pricing rationales; justice-informed business practices; personal expansion; and signature programs.

And that's what you'll do and create in Flora.

Flora is here to help you
build a substantial body of work
and flourishing business infrastructure
so you can make money AND justice...
without burning you out.

Because....

  • Running a Culture Making Business is not an act of financial martyrdom
  • You should not have to overwork and under-earn in the name of justice
  • You should not have to suffer to be affordable or accessible (and no one should require that of you!)
  • You should not have to retire on an empty bank account
  • You should not have to survive life’s traumas without ample resources

 

We want you to have the significant resources to fund your culture-making work, take care of your community, and show up for justice without burning out.

And we don’t want you to have to do it alone.

Your body of work

-- aka your intellectual property --

can be a never-ending source of culture-making and financial power.

Let’s build it together.

Legitimate, earned authority is key to creating a successful service-based business.
line-down

Meaning:

Your cashflow doesn’t have to depend on constantly performing, relentlessly expanding, or squeezing our creativity and flow into military-grade calendars (unless that's your jam!).

Instead of complying with an inhumane status quo, we want you to develop a proprietary body of work so you can show up in your marketing with blazing clarity and prolific ease.

We want you to have a streamlined business model that doesn’t add up to operating at a loss of resources

— material or spiritual.

We want you to have a life where no part of you is swallowed. And we imagine you growing emboldened in this group of brave culture-makers...

  • Emboldened to speak the truth.
  • Emboldened to ask for what you want.
  • Emboldened to create a world where the politics of domination are no longer possible.

INSIDE THE 8-MONTH PROCESS

Grow a Business that Makes Money & Justice

Mar 30 - Dec 8, 2022

Whether you’re new to online business or already have a platform bubbling, our goal in Flora is to develop the intellectual foundation, inner skills and forensic business strategy for your long-term revenue stability and culture-making work.

In Flora, you’re getting a customized business development curriculum (13 live trainings); the entire vault of Kelly Diels programs, weekly group masterminds, and high-touch 1:1 consulting with two seasoned mentors.

 

 

You’ll define your client, your niche, your methodology, your signature offer, and build out your platform and first launch.

In other words: you’ll create the foundation for your flourishing and develop selling & marketing processes you can repeat over and over to make good money.

We're excited for all the light-bulb moments and mini-wins along the way.

This mastermind group is here to help with the intellectual and emotional heavy lifting.

- Because together, we rise.
FLORA - SIDE ELEMENT 05

Meet your culture-making 
business dream team

Confidence is not a prerequisite.
It’s a capacity we cultivate in community and action.

I'm Kelly Diels [She/Her]

I’m Kelly Diels. I'm a business development coach for culture makers. I help socially responsible entrepreneurs make money AND justice.

My work is inclusive and about dismantling ALL forms of oppression -- and then, just as importantly, building the new structures to facilitate our collective flourishing.

My work has been featured in Jezebel, Salon, Alternet and cited in several culture-making books.

I’ve coached 1,000+ entrepreneurs including established leaders and authors whose names you already know AND the brilliant up-and-comers whose names you will soon know.

I specialize in the moment you decide to chuck the oppressive rules that were never meant to help you flourish, and decide to do it YOUR way.

Across the last decade, I've developed a suite of culture-making business practices and platform-building models that can help you build a business that makes money AND justice.

Hi, I'm Kelly

Here's what I know for sure:

[to borrow from Oprah :)]

None of us was born into a culture of justice. I know from direct experience -- and from building out my own social analysis -- that when it comes to making money and building power online, the status quo methods are no damn good for us or our clients.

Mainstream marketing wisdom, for example, trains entrepreneurs to manufacture authority by leveraging beauty and privilege — aka the faux authority of the Female Lifestyle Empowerment Brand -- and activate scarcity and shame to get our clients to buy.

If you've never been able to get traction with those methods, please know it wasn't you bumping up against upper limits or getting in your own way. You don't have a marketing defect. You have a finely honed sense of justice.

Which is GREAT. Your principles can be the single greatest marketing asset you have.

You can lead with your WORK. You can lead with vision and values, not shame and blame. You can get rid of all the manipulative add-ons and double-down on infrastructure.

In my experience in my own business and the businesses of my clients, it usually takes 3 years to get to reliable, grind-free revenue stability.

--->And in working with hundreds of clients, I’ve found it’s the first year’s intensive intellectual work (which many marketing trainings skip) that sets us up to flourish without burnout.<---

And that's what you'll develop in Flora.

This year, it's my great joy to be holding Flora in partnership with Danielle Cohen -- who coached me in building out my own visibility -- so that we can nurture your powerful ideas in community with a peer-group of accomplished, inspiring feminist business founders.

Important to note:

Flora was my great-grandmother's name. "Flor" means to flower, bloom, prosper; it's the root of both the name Flora and the word flourish.

And that's what we're here to do:grow a future in which we all flourish

Hi, I'm Danielle

I’m Danielle Cohen.[She/Her]

I'm a visibility coach and I help prosocial humans with big dreams birth and sustain their most important work.

Being seen is an absolutely necessary part of bringing your dreams to life and visibility is both risky AND powerful.

I coached Kelly in building out her own visibility and I've worked with some of the brightest lights in industries ranging from business to coaching to Hollywood.

In my work, I help you develop the skills you need so you can take the risks you want to take, gain the power you want to have, and have the capacity to take up your full and rightful space in the world.

My work is trauma informed, and shaped by equitable leadership practices, attachment healing, co-active coaching skills, birth work, and somatic care.

The people who work with me get seen -- and thrive while doing it.

 

Here’s what you can expect to work through

In our 8 months together:

Flora 2022 - Locate

1. LOCATE

Your Culture-Making Business Model

A culture-making business model is humane. You will develop a business model in which you are working sustainable hours, never scrambling, nor exploiting anyone, to grow your cashflow.

Working together in the 13 Foundations Business Training workshops, we begin the process by locating your values, your client, your methodology, your business model, your pricing & economic justice formula...and your dreams for yourself and the world.

Flora 2022 - Substantiate

2. SUBSTANTIATE

Your Body of Work

We know that you already have some nascent intellectual property within you. It’s just that it’s often minimized by cultures that are hostile to women’s* power.

* I define women as people who experience misogyny.

In Flora, we are explicitly confronting – and dissolving – our socialization to sit down and be quiet, to ask for less than we need, and to downplay our own experience, perspective and monetizable skills.

Our process surfaces your subconscious way of doing what you do best. We help you build out big, inviting language and compelling imagery that makes your intellectual contribution immediately visible. We create content that gets your clients excited by identifying what matters most to them -- no pain or shame required.

Once you have an explicit framework for getting results for your clients, talking about your work and selling it becomes a lot easier.

Flora 2022 - Generate

3. GENERATE

What You Need to Flourish

At this stage, we identify and implement streamlined marketing to bring in revenue. We’ll show you how to riff on and evolve your own body of work so you don’t accidentally revert back to being a productivity machine.

Instead, we’ll find a creative ebb and flow that gets you into flow so that you're publishing consistently but not constantly creating.

Most marketing trainings skip straight to the “Generate” part of platform building and teach you hacks for generating volumes of content quickly.

But without first pausing to build out your intellectual property -- which is what we did in the SUBSTANTIATE phase of Flora -- it can be really tough to produce content. It's hard to talk about your work when you haven't built out the logic, process, or language for your work.

When your strategy is based on your own original, heartfelt body of work, generating content -- and revenue! -- comes more naturally. That’s where you can sell without doing any “convincing.”

Copy, funnels, launches and sales calls — it’s all the easy part. It’s all repeatable systems and routine. You build it once and repeat.

PLUS you’re getting the entire vault of Kelly Diels marketing courses (you had no idea there were so many) so you can access what you need, when you need it.

And your two seasoned mentors -- Danielle Cohen and Kelly Diels -- wil be there every step of the the way, pointing you towards exactly what you need to flourish.

One of the special things about Flora that’s unlike other masterminds at this level is that you also get 1:1 coaching sessions.

You get:

  • Laser 1:1 check-ins with Kelly Diels to fine-tune your marketing & business strategy (10 mins each, as often as you need them; or stack them from time-to-time for a deeper dive)
  • Monthly 20 min emotional/somatic coaching and strategy sessions with Danielle Cohen

Integration Weeks

With a few exceptions, there are no meetings in the third week of every month so that you have time to implement and integrate (or rest!)

Copy Support from Our In-House Copywriter

Copy Coach Review Session

Here's how this works:

  1. You write the  first draft of your website copy or launch copy.

2) You share it with your copy coach 24 hours before your meeting

3) Then you meet with her and she gives you feedback, marks it up, suggests edits, and helps you zhush and optimize it so that your clients' hearts answer yes

Note: we are not providing copywriting services. Our copywriter doesn’t write copy for you. But she will make sure that to show you how to polish and refine your copy so that it sparkles...and SELLS.  Through a culture-making lens.

FLORA - SIDE ELEMENT 03

Guided Meditations with Ntathu Allen

You can't pour from an empty cup, which is why we offer these meditation sessions every week. To fill you back up.

Ntathu specializes in restorative breath work and meditation and helps culture makers and leaders tend their nervous systems and their spirits...

...so you can keep personally flourishing while contributing your gifts to our world.

 

My Entire Vault of Feminist Marketing Programs

ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS ($8,200 VALUE)

If there’s something you need to do in your business, I probably have a course on it. Social media, email sequences, websites, whatever you’re working on, with Flora you’ll have access to all of my tools and templates at once.

The goal, here, is to make sure you’ve got what you need, when you need it. I don’t want you to have to wait until month 6 to get a module or resource that you needed in month 3.

And if that sounds overwhelming, remember that I’m working with you, personally, to customize your business development path. With zero busy work, ever.

An Online Group

FOR EVERYDAY CONNECTION & GENIUS FEEDBACK

I have a feeling I’m not the only one who cringes at the thought of logging on to Facebook. It’s a delight, then, to host the Flora group on the women-founded platform, Mighty Networks. It’s a better user experience in every way, and another place for us to forge alliances, swap resources, encourage each other and gather feedback on our work.



Your business can emerge from next year more powerful and profitable.

Your business can make money AND justice.

refund policy

Flora is a very small container. If you commit to Flora,
you're committing to the entire duration of the program.

To preserve the integrity of the peer relationships that get cultivated in the Mastermind, and because there are specific trainings that stack upon each other, we cannot accept new members after intake closes.

That means that if someone drops out part way through, we cannot fill their spot. Because the container is so small, there’s no margin for cancellations or drop-outs and so we cannot offer refunds. If you choose to stop participating before the end date, your payments are still due in full.

Flora is a significant commitment of time, money and energy. It’s a serious investment in your business, and one that can generate a big return across years.

We appreciate your careful yes -- and we trust it.
