I meet people on the internet in person a lot. I’ve been doing that since I was 12 years old when it was considered taboo. I remember going to Disneyland on a high school orchestra trip (orch dork, represent) and trying to meet up with a guy I met on AOL way back when we were 13. The school found out and sat me down like I had done something wrong. They wanted to make sure he wasn’t a psycho killer and forbade me to meet him. I knew I wasn’t doing anything wrong, and I knew he wasn’t a psycho killer, but that sucked. Eventually we met in my transition from highschool to college and he bought me a purple vibrator I still use (sometimes). A great ‘coming of age’ parting gift…
I’ve never used straight up dating sites but I was on Make Out Club once, which is kind of hilarious. It’s “NOT a dating site” but ya know, everyone used it that way. It was the kind of phase when you’d bond over music tastes and think that means you’re perfect together. Remember when that shit mattered? It really doesn’t. But if you want to make a good mix tape, you better like someone who’s into the same music. I made a mix tape (CD) once and sketched an erotic picture of me+him for the CD cover. That’s kind of love, right? When High Fidelity was cool and my CD collection was relevant…
I used Make Out Club for NCMOs. My mormon friend told me that stands for Non-Commital Make Outs. That’s what mormons did to get down and dirty. I was down with that. I was too virginal to use it for much of anything else… Until I got into a long-term relationship straight up from Make Out Club. My ex had met his 1st girlfriend on Make Out Club too but he secretly found me more attractive. When I dumped him, he went back on Make Out Club. Third time’s the charm, I guess?
The whole point of this ramble is to say that I’ve always been “crushable” online. A reader and real life friend (due to the fact that I meet people on the internet) told me this. At first I thought he meant that I “crush it”. That I can build a career around my passions and I think I do that too. I’m totally crushing it right now! Cute, silly, naive lil me realized after a few seconds to let it register, that he meant it’s not hard for people to notice me and “crush” on me online. It’s always been like that, even before I had a blog platform. I guess it’s how I radiate in my own unique way. When you ooze personality (and I clearly do, online), you’ve got a Unique Selling Proposition.
Unique Selling Proposition is kind of like dating. Because you have to sell yourself, in a way. For a job. For a date. For a Make Out Club profile. For any interaction that you have with other people. That’s why SEX SELLS. Because everything goes back to attraction. In that primal sense. In that literal sense. It’s really that simple.
When I say I’m taking “sexual liberation coaching”, it means I’m figuring out how to stand in my power. My sexual power. My spiritual power. My feminine power. And it’s all interrelated. Money, love, sex, abundance, and somewhere along the line, your unique selling proposition too.
Joy, of Facets of Joy, gave me some clarity on this that I never thought about before. I’m just now starting to see the connections.
“The way we receive love into our life is the way we receive money into our life; the way we view money and spend it is the way we view love and share it.
So, if we are familiar with conditional love, we tend to have money debt. If we are familiar with prosperity with money, we tend to have healthy, solid connections that enrich and enliven.”
I’m trying to figure out how to cultivate solid connections that enrich and enliven. My personality and “Unique Selling Point” has always had that potential; I’m crushable and I’m crushing it, and now I’m figuring out how to play with this intentionally to optimize my results.
When you play with this in that way, and when you harness that USP, you can manifest your wildest dreams (and your dirtiest fantasies)!
What are you better at than anyone else?
This is all about brand positioning. Even if there are a million people doing the same thing as you who are “better”, you’ve got to think you’re the BEST at something, to position yourself on the top. To differentiate from all the rest, you’ve got to get clear on what you offer that no one else could do quite like you. You’ve got to get clear on exactly who you serve. I’m the BEST at something. And I think I’m on my way towards being the BEST intuitive designer for holistic, creative, heart-based small businesses. I’m the BEST at helping said holistic, creative, heart-based entrepreneurs manifest their wildest dreams and deepest desires. This is happening.
Creating, drawing, painting, writing, reading, hiking, trekking, rock climbing, being “outdoorsy”, playing music, being silly, people watching, listening, watching movies, traveling, yoga, underwear dancing, and going on wild adventures.
What do (or could) you provide that no one else is providing?
I provide ebook design, graphic design and web design services but I’m trying to package it up all pretty like. With hearts and ribbons and pixie stardust. The idea I have in mind (and I’m still looking for beta testers, hint, hint) is Shine On Sessions (S.O.S.). A jumpstart coaching+manifesting, design+strategy sessions to help you launch an idea with my intuitive design skills, brand excavation, and magical manifesting prowess as your arsenal. It’s a holistic approach to launching your service/product/business and It’s going to kick ass!! Within this vein, I can also start manifestation coaching because I’m going to manifest it and make it happen (see what I did there?). Manifesting and intentional travel…. I’ve already got something up my sleeve so stay tuned!
What annoys people the most about your industry or blog area?
Follow your dreams! Make money online! Personal development has been done x101. It gets kind of old. How do you create a new spin on it? How do you create something of value that will stand out from all the other crap? How do you insure your products aren’t crap? I’ve got a genius idea! How to make a lifestyle business by telling other people how to make a lifestyle business! That’s so meta. It gets annoying. The whole lifestyle business is going to collapse in itself if you’ve got carbon copies. Just be yourself and march to your own beat. Follow your inner compass. It will tell you what you need to do.
What is remarkable about you?
I don’t have too many formal accolades and my resume is probably unimpressive but I’m not your average girl next door. I’ve won an art scholarship and then rejected it by transferring schools. I’ve painted a mural in my room. I just finished living in the Philippine slums for 2 years. I walked 800km in Palawan island in only flip-flops (what was I thinking?) and had wild adventures with a Filipino martial artist (the man who walks). We survived by squatting in shelters, abandoned huts, magic, and the sheer kindness of strangers. I lived in a monastery for 6 months, 4 of which was during a meditation retreat. I shaved my head. I’m a Wild Woman. I’m intuitive. I’ve drawn people naked and I’ve been a nude art model (and I would do it again). I manifest things with ease. Sometimes, it surprises me but I’m getting used to the fact that I’m a magical manifestor. I manifest people, places, travel, experiences and I’m getting better at manifesting money. I am the magic. I am a radiant goddess and I shine bright; like starstuff. We all are.
I call myself Interplanet Janet sometimes because a School House Rocks song has the same name that practically fits me. Interplanet Janet she’s a galaxy girl! A solar system miss from a future world. I sometimes feel like I’m “out of this world” because it’s hard for me to relate to people or feel I truly belong. It’s part of why I’ve got a gypsy soul and I was born for leaving. It could be the fragmented results of growing up as a Third Culture Kid. Apparently, being a global citizen also makes me feel “other worldly” and alien. Metaphorically, I’ve come to make this mean that I’m a visionary and I’ve got starstuff that shine bright and I’m here to help you shine your light. Ok, that probably sounds cheesy. But I’m here to help shift and elevate humanity. My woo-woo spirit has come gradually, but sure enough, my hippy parts are showing. I was born to shine a light up in your ass and ride it back and forth forever (Me and You and Everyone We Know reference, go watch it if you’re into Hipster bullshit, and by bullshit I mean bullSHINE. I’m in Portland now, so I’ve got it made. Just keep shitting diamonds. You’ll see.). If this paragraph drivel isn’t unusual enough to get a sense of my “elements”, I don’t know what is.
Do you have a big personality?
You know what they say. Big things come in small packages! I may be shorty and timid and sweet but you ain’t seen this mouse that roared yet. I think “big” can mean different things. I may not be the loudest of the bunch, and I’m introverted, but I’m shaping my New Story like no one’s business. And this new story is a confident, joyful, badass creative who will rock your socks inside out.
Life is art, now go and create it!
How do you use your personality to stand out online?
