It definitely seems like vision board parties just popped up out of nowhere, right?

About four years ago, a good friend invited me to my first vision board and at the time I thought it was some woo-woo voo-doo that would never work.

But I was struggling in my life (going through a whole quarter-life crisis thing) so I agreed anyway.

That’s where I learned I how powerful vision board parties are - and from that moment on, I never started a year without creating a vision board.

And I wanted to share vision boards with… EVERYONE.

So I started hosting my own vision board parties (naturally). Sometimes I made money, other times I didn’t but I consistently learned what worked and what didn’t year after year.

After my fifth vision board party, I had a good handle on exactly what I could do to ensure I made a profit- every single time.

Keep Your Costs Low

You can increase your chances of making money by not spending that much money in the first place. There are a lot of fancy things you can add to a vision board party to make it super fancy (like a venue, amazing decor or inviting expensive speakers) and those fancy things will cost you fancy money. You’ll have to sell enough tickets to be able to cover the cost of everything you paid for upfront - and then make a profit.

Marketing

No matter how much energy you put into planning your vision board party, you’ll need to sell tickets to be able to make any type of profit.

That’s where marketing comes in.

The more tickets you sell, the more opportunities you have to actually make a profit with your party. You can sell tickets through marketing on social media, email, building partnerships, working with affliates or talking to people you know.

All of these actions put together will expose more people to your event - and increase your odds of selling more tickets.

Pricing

Pricing is one of the most important focuses of your event - because if you price too low, you won’t break even on your expenses (or make a profit). On the other hand, if you price too high, people will not want to purchase tickets to your event.

Value

Your event has to totally deliver on the promises you made in the marketing material. If you tell people that you’re going to tackle their financial hardships, you have to make sure that you address their money woes to a point that they feel energized to go home and tackle their goals.

The benefit of hosting a super high value event is two-fold. When people are able to walk away from your event feeling like you helped them make a real change in their lives -they’ll want to come back again. They’ll also start to tell their friends about the event.

That means in the future you could charge more for that value.

You now have fans that will be interested in a future event from you.

You also have people who will go out and market your event for you because they’ll be telling their friends and family about it. #winning

Making money with vision board parties is totally possible! All it takes is a bit of planning, budgeting and providing enough value to your attendees to help them reach their goals.

Vision boards seem like a vague idea, don’t they?

I mean, you’ll hear from several brilliant people that if you take some time to look through magazines, cut out some pictures and paste them to a poster board you’ll be able to manifest huge life changes.

That sounds a little bit crazy but trust me, the vision board rumors you hear are true.

Here’s everything I know about creating a vision board - from creating the goals to the visualization to making you dreams come true.


The Why

Why Your Dreams Need A Home

A few years ago, I was chatting with a friend who was simply overwhelmed by the massive ideas she had in her head. That inspired me to write this post. The process of building a vision board takes you out of the daily grind to focus only on your desires for the future. Your vision board gives your big dreams a place to come to life.

Why Vision Boards Work and Why You should create one

If you’ve ever been skeptical of creating a vision board (I sure was at the beginning) this post is a great place to start.

Getting Started

Creating A Vision Board? Make Sure You Have These Three Goals First

There is one key component vision boards have in common: they all help people manifest goals. You’ll need your very own goals to get started building your vision board. This posts will help you nail down the important ones.

5 Things To Do BEFORE You Make a Vision Board

Creating a vision board can be super easy - and it can also be super hard. I like the super hard way. I like to deep dive into my emotions, ask myself the hard questions and try to tease out what’s most important to me. This post is all about the different things you can do before you make a vision board.

The How

5 Unique Ways To Create A Vision Board That Fits Your Style

No two people (and no two visions) are the same. You should create a vision board that works for you. This posts walks through several different examples on how you can create a vision board that fits your style.

Create a Vision Board That Actually Serves You (Not Just One That Looks Good)

If you want your vision board to really change your life, you have to invest your time into it. You have to think about what you want your life to look like and how you want to feel over the long term. This post walks through exactly how to do that effectively to create a vision board that works.

Getting Your Materials

What Materials Do You Need To Create A Vision Board

This one is pretty straight forward. This post outlines the full list of materials that you could use to create your vision board - everything from the boards to the magazines.

What Magazines Should I Use For My Vision Board? Effective List of Do's and Don'ts

There are some magazines that were pretty much made for creating vision boards. They’ll have such beautiful images and words in them that you’ll have a lot of options when you’re building your vision. This post outlines all the magazines I recommend for different areas of your life.

What To Do Next

So, You've Created a Vision Board... Now What?

After you create a vision board, it’s pretty easy to throw your beautiful creation on a shelf and walk away from it. However, this is not the best way to get the best result from creating a vision board. This post walks through all of the things you should consider doing after you create your vision.

5 Things To Do Instead of Committing Suicide

I recently shared my full debt story on Chain of Wealth Podcast. This interview inspired me to create this series. Rise From Rock Bottom tells every story from my failure years - and how I overcame it.


There was a bridge. 

I would pass it every day after leaving my luxury apartment, in my high end car. It overlooked the highway and busy cars filled the streets at all hours of the night.

And every day I would think to myself... "I wish I could just jump off."

My life had become something that only looked beautiful on the outside. I continued the charade with my delightful smile and playful demeanor. (I mean... I couldn't let anyone know how I was really feeling. It was unpleasant.)

Day after day, my daydreams would get more vivid until I could see myself walking around the gate and sitting on the edge of the bridge. My fingers would tremble when I grabbed the rusted iron and pull myself up. I would cry and think about my family while looking down at the busy highway below until I could muster up enough strength to...

jump.

That wan't an easy time for me (and to be honest it's pretty difficult to admit now) but I know it's a reality for many people. 

I didn't understand why I was suffering or what my life had become. I was broke. I couldn't afford to feed myself. I was a slave to my bills.

I believed there was no way out. 

I tried talking to a psychologist because I wanted to talk to someone that wouldn't judge me. On the first visit, I felt like she was judging me. I walked though my painful story (the parts I don't tell my friends about). I fought back tears and choked on my words but I got everything out.

Afterwards, her first question to me was "Do you want to hurt your daughter?"

HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU GET THAT FROM ANYTHING I SAID. #Facepalm

She continued. I smiled. I nodded.  (Mostly because I was paying for the full hour.) I left her office believing that I must be beyond help. 

This time in my life was difficult, but there was a few things that were actually helpful for me to regain my strength and want to live again.

Call Your Friends

The only times I would get depressed (or feel like dying) would be when I was stuck in my head. I would spend my time scolding myself. 

"How could you be so stupid!" 

 

Other times, I was genuinely confused.

"How did you get here?" 

 

I felt helpless.

"You'll never get out of this."

 

I felt unworthy.

"You're too stupid. You're useless. You're lazy."

 

I started to call my friends whenever I got a second alone. Even if I was in tears, it was nice to hear a friendly voice to push out internal one. 

It was a distraction from my own thoughts but I believe it was the right way to go for me. 

 

Visit Family

Family has a way of making you feel warm inside - even if you don't know what to do with your life.

During that time, I had a standing date with my grandmother. I would go to my moms house every Sunday and my grandmother and I would find something to watch together. She'd make dinner and I'd sit with my her and watch whatever she'd chosen for that week. 

At one point, we found a series to enjoy together that came on Sunday nights so we'd spend time before and after the show speculating about what would happen next. 

In those times, I could only think about how much fun I was having - and how much I appreciated those moments with my grandmother. 

 

Take melatonin to fall asleep

Melatonin is a hormone that helps your body regulate sleep. (I stole this legit definition from WebMD. I, on the other hand, heard it on a podcast and was willing to try anything.)

Since I was so disappointed with my life, I would spend the entire night awake wondering how I could pull myself out of this rut. I would think about things I could create, jobs I could apply for, different things I could sell. 

Some nights I would get stuck in a negative cycle and spend the entire night crying. 

I would end up with very little sleep, maybe an hour or so, before it was time to start my next day. 

That's when I started to take melatonin. Any night I realized that my mind was racing or thinking negative thoughts, I would take the recommended dosage of melatonin. 

It would help me get to sleep at night so I could finally stop worrying. 

 

Find A goal to work Towards

At this point, I was used to constantly failing and having doors slammed in my face. I was convinced at that point I as a loser. I didn't have the confidence or intelligence to sustain a long term goal. 

I associated my identity with failure.

Parenting was one thing I hadn't failed at (at least not yet). Plus, I could easily make the decision to be a good parent any time.... and I didn't have to wait to see the results. 

I would cook a new meal.. and see my daughter's face light up. 

We could bake a cake together.. and I could watch her learn something new. 

We would do crafts together.. and I could see the pride in her eyes when she created something beautiful. 

Instead of using my energy to beat myself up, I could give what little energy I had to my daughter. 

 

Do everything with other people... EVERYTHING

I realized quickly that my trigger for negative thoughts and crying was being alone. For better or for worst, I love to present a positive outlook on life to the outer world and I used that tendency to my advantage. 

I first asked my mom could my little sister move in with me. With someone else in the house that I could talk to at any time, I rarely ever had to worry about my negative thoughts.

On the weekends, I would spend nights at friend's houses. I found a workout buddy to go to the gym with every night. 

When I was with people, I didn't think about my pain or how I let myself fall that low or how I'd always be a failure. I could only think about enjoying this moment with a friend.... and my good fortune to have friends that would be there when I needed them most. 

 

This is my story. That means these may not work for you. It was perfect for me to get through hell and come out on the other side victorious (and alive) during my lowest point in life.
