Welcome to the weekly newsletter that helps you with the kind of personal development you need to become a better content creator. We'll explore Reiki, writing, and content creation below before wrapping up this newsletter by helping you show up online.

The Wichita Reiki Day in August Lands on 8/27
I offer 25 minutes of Reiki for $40 in Wichita at White Dove on the final Saturday each month.
This month, this is on August 27 from 11-4!
You can call White Dove to book (316-262-3683), simply walk into the store that day, or you can reserve your time online (and pay ahead) by booking at this link.
The day isn't limited to Reiki!
I decided this would be a GREAT way to offer affordable coaching sessions once a month—and in person—at White Dove. This is ideal if you're new to coaching, want a limited amount of coaching (as in just once a month for 1/2 an hour), or can't afford the full cost right now due to economic hardship.
Like Reiki, the coaching sessions will be 25-30 minutes for $40. You will leave with ONE actionable step you can take towards changing your life for the better. (I will follow up to make sure you take that step, too).
Book a complimentary coaching session if you're a first-timer, or the $40 session if you're a repeat client.
Please reach out with questions at destinyarchitecture [at] gmail [dot] com.
I know times are tough for many right now with inflation, higher gas prices, and an insanely volatile economy. I've been there and I just didn't feel right charging more than $40 for 30-minutes of (in-person) coaching and Reiki right now.
Especially if you're seeking career coaching like help with a career change, resume, job interview, or LinkedIn profile! (Remember, a first-time session is free online and an in-person session and could just be the jolt you need).

YouTube Shorts & Showing Up Online Via Video
Here's more about the evolution of what I think is the most successful way to reach a new audience online: YouTube Shorts ⬇️
Notice on the Destiny Architecture YouTube page how shorts are the first thing you'll see.
They don't have to be fancy. The barrier to entry is low. All you need is your phone to make a short as you would any TikTok or Instagram Reel. This leads me to my next point...
Question of the Week: How Can I Show Up Online?
I joined a coworking spot recently where I can network with other women in business. I had a coffee date with a lady who works in insurance. She'd also been recruited by our coworking spot to make an Instagram Reel.
My eyes lit up.
"You can do so much as an insurance agent by making Reels!"
"Ok, Heather, but how do I start showing up on videos?"
I actually made a whole video about this earlier this year 👇
My early videos? Horrible. Awkward. But I watched them and began learning how to do better. We all start out hating how we sound or look via audio and video. I spent 20+ years on the air as a radio personality hearing my own voice.
But video was different!
I'd never had to "show up" on video before. This year, I've played with lightning, set, makeup, hair...and sometimes clothing. But if you watched regularly, you didn't miss my "black hoodie" phase 😉
I feel pretty liberated showing up in no makeup, crazy humidity hair, and just shooting shorts on the fly with ideas I have in the present moment. I'm having fun.
Plus, the secret is that audiences like authenticity!
If this is something you'd like to be coached on, let me know by booking a free discovery call online.
