The Purposeful Creative
 

Dear Procrastinator,

Life is too short to overthink all your ideas.

 
 

Whatever your thing is: whether that’s a side-hustle, or a blog/vlog, or a freelancing portfolio — IT’S TIME.

Maybe you’ve been trying (for months/years/forever) to:

Start/build your own blog/vlog…
Publish your own book…
Launch your portfolio…
Start a freelancing career…
Launch a side-hustle or online shop…
Teach & earn from workshops…
or pursue all these other creative passion projects

But you can never seem to follow through.

Look. The truth is: I know too many people who SAY they want to start a blog/write a book/launch a side-hustle — and 2 years after, sheepishly tell me that they still haven’t started.

And that’s how you can end up unhappy and unfulfilled with your life —

all the while, you watch as other people are able to make THEIR ideas happen, and you’re stuck spinning your idea wheels, talking about getting started “soon” — but never actually following through.

 
 

You’re not getting any younger.

And life?
Life is so, so, so short.

 

Next thing you know, you’ll be at an age where the window of opportunity has passed you by… and you just missed it.

Life is so short.

Do you want to regret NOT trying something just because... you were too afraid of what other people will think, or because you were "too busy"?

Story Time:
How I Got Started

Let me tell you a story about a time when I finally stopped making excuses, and finally LAUNCHED THE THING.

“The thing” being my online business. (Which I had been toying around with in my head for months on end!)

Let’s hop on this little time machine, and dial it back to 2015, back when the world wasn’t yet on fire, and I just hit peak quarter life crisis.

I was feeling very unhappy with my job, I felt like I wasn’t growing anymore, and I just feel so… stagnant and stuck.

And so I decided to try and start making a living from my blog & my passion for teaching — and I want to do it full-time.

Now, I could have stayed in brainstorming mode for months and months on end. But I didn’t want to. Life is short, as I told you. (Also, I’m an INTJ slash Virgo Rising, so if you know, you know.)

And so within a week of deciding I wanted to quit my job, I made measurable goals, spreadsheets, and calendared everything I wanted to do to start side-hustling. I was DETERMINED to follow-through, and I wanted to build momentum as early as I could.

Long story short, I announced my first workshop within a few hours, then went on to teach workshops every weekend.

When I finally pushed myself to just start & launch the thing, here’s what happened:

 
 
 

Personal growth & overcoming self-doubt:

Because I was putting myself out there, honoring my commitments to myself, and just sharing my work - I slowly became more confident as I got more practice with teaching

 

 

Financial growth:

I ended up earning PhP 117,000 in just 3 months! Not only did this give me capital for my business, but it gave me cushion for when I finally quit my job

YOU can do it, too.

It's a whole new world out there. Gone are the days when you had no choice but to TOIL at a job you didn’t love, waking up every day to do meh (or even soul-sucking) work.

Say what you will about social media, but because of it: anyone can start doing work that they love and sharing it online. And if you’re driven and organized and hard-working enough? You can even start earning from it.

You can do it.
But only if - you actually TRY.

 
 
 

I mean, I get it.

When you're all by yourself, you tend to get sucked into info-overwhelm:

  • You binge-read how-to articles,

  • Watch videos and tutorials,

  • Look for pegs,

  • Listen to podcasts

  • Brainstorm in coffee shops...

But at the end of the day?

 
 

You still overthink everything – and end up with a whole lot of nothing.

 

Let’s just be real here:
It’s VERY hard to keep promises to yourself.

At the end of the day, it’s so easy to say: I’ll do that tomorrow — because well, no one’s watching. No one’s going to call you out, or fire you, or punish you — if you don’t keep the commitment you made to yourself.

But what if you had someone to check on if you’re on the right track —

and have that extra layer of accountability? Someone who will hold you accountable (and send you e-mails) to motivate you to finish the workshop instead of prolonging it, or forgetting about it?

1200 x 800 white bg.jpg

It’s a lot less scary to do something new & brave - when you’re in a safe space that encourages you to just try.

 

Believe me. In my experience: having driven, like-hearted people who GET you and your vibe, and absolutely don’t judge you for this “self-help silliness” —

that’s what makes the difference.

braver goals testimonial level 2 - mikli.png

“Now, I have my very own self-published book!”

In the beginning of the course, I felt almost out of place. I felt like I had no passions! I really had no idea what I enjoyed doing. I was interested in lots of little stuff, but nothing that felt anywhere near raring to go.

Braver Goals gave me that mindset shift - that “figuring things out” comes after trying, and not the other way around — it got me to this passion project that I’d gladly wake up early in the morning for!

Now, I have my very own self-published book!

“I accomplished my passion project probably 10x faster than if I just did it on my own.”

I’ve had this idea for a book for the longest time ever. When I joined Braver Goals, I decided to finally start working on this big dream of mine.

My Braver Goal for 90 days was to write 51,300 words — so that meant writing 500 words a day.

By following the Braver Goals system... I got to 60,000 words in just 90 days! I accomplished my passion project probably 10x faster than if I just did it on my own.

In the course of this bootcamp, I learned to just show up even when it was hard, when I was uninspired, or just plain unmotivated. I have the tools and the right mindset now.

Before Braver Goals, I was so insecure and wondered if people will even pay me for my work. Now, I’ve started earning from my art!

Before Braver Goals, I was so insecure and really wondered if people will even pay me for my work. Then I just started telling people that I am selling & offering design services and people responded.

From just an idea, I’ve started earning from my art, I’ve grown my Instagram following, and started putting myself out there a lot more.

So thankful for all the guidance, feedback & support from Arriane & the rest of the awesome girls from the course! Braver Goals was suuuuuch a great investment for my personal growth. The price is so worth it!

Top 6 Reasons Why You Should Join The Class:

1. It will help you cultivate better self-awareness

One of the biggest mistakes of many goal-setting methods is that they go straight to the practical stuff: make plans, lists, calendars.

But I've designed a Why-Driven method, which begins with (and give a lot of emphasis to) really thinking about your motivations, where you're coming from, to make sure that if you're making plans and a roadmap -- you're actually facing in the right direction!

The best plans fall flat if you're going in the wrong direction, chasing the wrong goals in the first place.

2. It’s packed with easy-to-follow action steps that you can do immediately

Yes, there's a lot of introspection here, but we all know thinking and hypothesizing about something won't budge you from where you are.

When you’ve finished all the lessons, you’ll know exactly what you need to do to move forward.

You'll have worksheets and spreadsheets that you can use and tweak immediately, and even some very concrete examples/case studies that you can learn from to apply to your own situation.

3. You'll get guidance with generating ideas

'Just do it! Don't be afraid to fail!' -- how many times have you heard this advice? Instead of just vaguely telling you to "make your ideas happen," this class will SHOW you exactly how. There will be brainstorming techniques (internal, and external), and fun challenges.

4. Learn a timeless strategy that's a catalyst for bigger things

The methods I teach are life skills that you can apply to ALL aspects of your life: It can help you become a self-starter and a leader in your work, your organization, your family, or your group of friends!

5. Less fluff, more implementation

My teaching style is clear, simple, practical, and very, very actionable. I get to the meat of the lesson without unnecessary noise & pomp -- because I know that you will learn best by DOING. Less info-overwhelm, more action!

6. Examples galore!

Most of the time, we need to see a learning concept in real life, in action, in different situations -- for us to fully understand how it works. I learn that way, too. So when I teach, I include A LOT of examples & case studies (and video walkthroughs!).

FAQ

 

How much time do I need to devote to this?

For the accountability group, all you need is 2 minutes every day to give an update to your team. And maybe an extra 3 minutes to cheer your other teammates on, of course! So - 5 minutes daily. Doable, right?

(Refer to calendar above for a more detailed breakdown of Bootcamp schedule.)

For the e-course itself: The modules are uploaded inside a private classroom, and if you’re doing self-study, if you sit down and binge-learn this, Netflix-style — you can finish in about 5-6 hours (complete with snack breaks). Otherwise, what most of my students do is break it up into 30 minute learning sessions — you’ll finish it in a week!

 

How long will I have access to this?

The pop-up Facebook group will last for the duration of the 30-day challenge. So from now until February 21. See the calendar of growth above to review the key dates.

 

How long will I have access to the content of the e-course?

For 1 whole year! Unlike an in-person workshop, where in you just attend for 1 workshop, and then bye, you go home -- in an online workshop, you get access to the course content for one whole year.

That means you can re-watch, re-read, re-take any of the missions any time you want.

Why is access just for one year? Based on our experience & feedback from MANY batches, we’ve learned that putting a finite timeline on access promotes TAKING ACTION instead of just knowledge hoarding.

Student feedback has been that they feel more lax and complacent if they know it’s going to be there forever; and feel more motivated by urgency to act when they know they have a deadline.

 
  • All the course content is uploaded inside a members-only site.

  • The Passion Project Planner is downloadable as a PDF that you can print out & answer with a pen.

  • All content is mobile and tablet friendly! You can read, watch, or listen on the go (if you enroll in the learning plan with videos and guided modules).

  • If you’re on iOS, you can also download the Teachable app, and view the modules from there.

What format does the challenge come in?

 

Just to make it clear, this program isn’t a one-on-one coaching program - so there won’t be individual feedback.

Due to popular demand, we included the option to avail of personalized feedback as an optional add-on. You may view the rates here.

Will I get personalized coaching or feedback?

Do you have a refund policy?

 
 

Refund Policy

 

Try the course+workbook for 7 days with our
100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.

Before anything else, we DO NOT offer refunds if: you purchased the “Workbook Only” plan.

We run our school a little differently: we value delivering RESULTS over all else. If you're a joy-enroller (just enroll in courses & then don't go through them, then demand for a refund) — this is NOT the school for you.

We honor refunds based on a code of teacher-student honor. Our genuine mission is to give you a program of VALUE, one that will deliver results, IF you actually do the activities. 

It’s just like working out, or skincare — you can’t buy a gym membership or a skincare product, and expect results WITHOUT actually using it consistently, right?

And so, our refund policy revolves around action and completion.

We’ve worked hard on putting this learning experience together — and so we also expect you to do the work and give it your best shot. That’s why in order to be eligible for our 7-Day Satisfaction Guarantee, you must submit proof that you did the coursework.

To request for a refund, you have to:

Submit your COMPLETED workbook to team@thepurposefulcreative.com. Failure to submit this, or submitting the requirements after the 7-day grace period will invalidate your refund request.

If you’re able to submit this within that 7-day grace period (counting after your date of purchase), we’ll promptly refund your course fee. Again, to be crystal clear, if you do not include your completed workbook requirements within the 7 day period, no refund will be issued.
