Bon Matin Mon Cheries! I'm all about the exclamation mark today because here at Chez Brocante we have urgent business to attend to this morning, so pull up a chair with your elevenses (I have helped myself to a cherry scone with salty Cornish butter this morning...) and get ready to make a decision about our future together!
You see this coming Friday afternoon sees the release of my very first Brocante "Bundle" and you can only get it if you are a member of my lovely salon...
(My accountant has been urging me to simplify the way I run my business for a long time now and I have been resisting his rather demanding notions for a while but there comes a point when we have to understand that sometimes those who make it their profession to organise our money really do know best when it comes to creating it...)
Here's the deal: I am moving to a monthly payment only model. One price, one product. The opening price is $20.00 and the product is my truly lovely Salon. So from this day forward I will be focusing all my efforts on making the Salon your one-stop-truly-scrumptious-stop on the road to a life less ordinary.
No more new Living room memberships. No more access to the individual products in my store. No more annual membership fee options for new subscribers and no more diversifying: from now everything I create will live behind our gorgeous Salon walls and I simply cannot wait to throw everything I have got into helping you change your life, day by day, moment by moment and baby step by baby step...
You see there is nothing quite like the BrocanteHome Salon. No other membership offering on the internet offers access to such a variety of homemaking and life-inspiring resources and no other offering includes the kind of one on one coaching access you get from me as part of the monthly price, including a free one hour (optional) Skype Pep-Talk and permanent, as-often-as-you-like access to our digital coaching space where you and I can engage in life-changing text conversation as often as you need me.
I know that life isn't all ha ha ha hee hee hee! I know that you are tired and that often you simply don't know where to start looking after your home and living the kind of authentic life you long for. I know that some of you buried your dreams a long time ago, that you feel as though you are fighting a losing battle with dirt and dust-bunnies and that organising your family sometimes feels like herding goats.
I know all this because I have been listening to you for more that thirteen years now and each and every one of the modules in the Salon is designed to answer a specific issue in your domestic life, while the coaching space exists to encourage you to focus on your dreams and make them happen one at a time...
I am introducing the monthly bundles so that month by month we can work together on one issue in your life and that we can follow each other's journey in our gorgeous, private Facebook Community. Each week there will be a new blog post in the Salon (though I will still be blogging here!) tackling one more aspect of a life less ordinary (in fact Salon Members can hop over now to see this weeks post: a ten-point plan for rejuvenating home and spirit in September!) and every month without fail, I will be introducing new resources to the Coaching Space so that you have got all that you need to start your own journey towards a life defined by routine, ritual and teeny celebration.
Septembers bundle is called The Creative Home Spa - a gorgeous package of resources, thoughts, downloads and workbooks for a two day "Lady-Time-Out" - a detailed plan for everything from the podcasts you listen to, the food you eat, the plans you make and some truly lovely, pampering, puttery rituals you perform during three days you will use to re-think every aspect of who you are, how you feel and how you run your domestic life.
(Next month's Bundle is the long lost House Rules, and Novembers Bundle, a Couples Guide to a Life Less Ordinary. Decembers is a truly scrumptious secret...)
(It has been a long time coming but it is finally here and if you did not receive it first time around be sure access will be granted even if you are not a Salon member!)
So there we have it: my plans for the future of BrocanteHome and I suppose my question is, are you in or out??
Last Chance Saloon!
This m'dears is the Last Chance Saloon because before the changes arrive next week I want you to have the chance to grab a "Closing Down" bargain or two! So please feel free to help yourself to one of the following offers and I will provide more information about the changes to the Salon next week after we have all absorbed my lovely new bundle and are ready to commit to a life less ordinary, truly, wholly and completely...
Offer One: Annual Payment of $150.00 (A Discount of $90.00 Per Year) FOR LIFE.
This is the last time I am ever going to do this and it means you can lock in the price of $150.00 per year for complete access to everything included in the Salon, no matter how big, beautiful or expensive it becomes.
Offer Two: 50% Off All Individual Modules In the Store
The store will disappear completely next week. Yup. It will vanish and access to everything including my best selling Housekeeping 365 system will only be possible in the Salon. So if you are not ready to commit to The Salon then please feel free to use the code CLOSING DOWN to grab anything you want in the store, all available for instant download, whether it be The Slow Scrub, Trash It or Treasure It, my ABSOLUTELY AMAZING HOMEMAKERS TRELLO SYSTEM or my inspirational Seasonal House Series. It's all yours for the taking.
Offer Three: The Creative Home Spa
This is one off access to my first bundle so you can truly get a feel for the breadth of information and inspiration that will be included in each of the monthly bundles in the Salon. Simply click below to buy and you will receive access to all the workbooks, posts, and downloads included in the first bundle this Friday afternoon...
Please know that I know this decision won't sit well with some of you, but I desperately want to pull the community together, create an income that isn't stressful for me here at home, and start us all on a journey we can truly share in our own authentic way...
This then is the new BrocanteHome. A process I started earlier in the Summer with the move from Wordpress to Squarespace, continued with the introduction of my astonishingly successful Domestic Bliss Coaching service and will next week continue with a new way to support BrocanteHome from as little as a dollar a month, giving you access to something so many of you have been begging for, for many a year (I'm sooooo excited to get started!!)
While discussion of money hurts my heart and makes some of you cross, BrocanteHome is my livelihood and I can only make it work, and continue to write my lovely books, if I am realistic about both how it is funded and making sure that I am serving those really dedicated to creating a life less ordinary as wholly and completely as I can...
I hope you understand and as always I thank you for your continued support, I love you lots.x
