What are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?

Hi! My name is Marissa and I am a transformational business coach. That is a fancy title for the coolest job ever. I get to ask entrepreneurs and small business owners around the globe powerful questions about their life & business in order to make really amazing decisions that make things even better. The truth is we get wrapped up in the day to day decisions and don't always get the chance to see where we are going in the grande scheme of things. Sometimes we set goals but don't actually know how to achieve them or even why achieving them is so important.

I normally work with people on a weekly basis over four to six months helping them achieve BIG results by asking them powerful questions - often ones they don't know to ask themselves or maybe avoid asking themselves. But these questions not only help you get clarity on what you really want but they help you build the exact action steps you need in order to actually achieve it. 

I wanted to build an oracle type deck that ANYONE could use to help them create the life they truly want, find joy and achieve their goals with ease. 

I wish I could work with everyone on achieving their big dreams but that's not exactly possible so I made The Little Box of Big Questions - it's like having me in your pocket! Use these cards like a prompt or even an oracle deck. You can pick from the top or randomly from the middle or shuffle and see if one falls out. Any of these questions will get you closer to achieving what you truly want. 

The idea is that you can pick one card every day to do a daily reflection or you can use it like a tarot or oracle deck and put out a whole spread. 

You get to Create the Rules.

A Few of the Cards
A Few of the Cards

So here is what I did to make it possible for anyone to get some powerful, kick ass questions to help them in life AND business if they run one. I made 50 cards with bold, beautiful questions designed to help you go deep into your decision making process. PLUS a beautiful little bound book that takes those questions even further if you need it. Use it as a planner, use it as cue cards for group discussions, use them like oracle decks - the choice is up to you. It's practical, it's fun - it's practically fun!

Each deck comes with a comprehensive book that explains the question further, giving you more insight about why each question is so important and impactful. Printed to fit in the box with each deck of cards, the books will be about 2 inches x 2 inches wide.

ABOUT THE SWISH ON THE FRONT 

The Swish is the intuitive design and art of Misty Hughes, an exceptional artist who channels the creative energy of our world and universe into incredibly diverse and impactful artwork that is highly sought after. Her work will be appearing in upcoming movies soon and we are so excited to partner with her on this and future projects. This Swish is now my personal logo but to me it signifies the beautiful chaos outside of the box. We are often labelled and boxed into beliefs that don't always quite fit us. We are swirling balls of energy that change, grow, expand and move and sometimes those pre-defined boxes just can't contain us. I love using this Swish and other pieces in Misty's portfolio to act as a meditative grounder that I can focus on and clear my mind before allowing the question I pulled to work it's magic on me. 


Meet Misty Hughes 

Misty Hughes - Artist
Misty Hughes - Artist

BIO: After leaving a 20 year design career at a major greeting card corporation, I have moved my focus to nurturing my true creative spirit. Being smitten for years with mid-century modern design naturally led to the love of the art that complemented it. After years of being cooped up in a cubicle made my desire for individual expression is all the more intense.   I visited as many museums as possible and took books out of the library beyond what I could carry on the subject. Long evenings of art appreciation eventually started to evolve into my individual voice. I am now free to be at the pulse of my authentic nature and open to living into my full creative expression.  I am intensely inspired by the works of the New York School Abstract Expressionism movement. I create art that is a modern extension of this provocative art style.   In my work, it is my desire to invoke communion and inspiration in all of my pieces. I love line, composition, texture and true emotive action painting. I work in mixed media, always open to exploration and curious to what combinations would create a new fascinating piece.   It is so much joy for me to throw open the doors at both ends of my little studio apartment very near Lake Erie and let the magic happen. I plan to pursue my creative expression with purpose and be an earnest contributor to the art world, inspiring and touching the lives of many. Discover more: http://www.mistykhughes.com


The Rewards
The Rewards

Ok let's talk about what you're going to get when you back this Kickstarter. First of all - my undying love and affection. I really want to eventually launch an independent print house engine that can help independent makers and artists collectively sell their print and made items and this would be one of the first products launched under the label. So when you back Kickstarters, it's not just one project - sometimes it is a whole career. 

BUT let's talk about the actual rewards you get in your hot little hands, shall we?

THE DECK - It's 50 Cards of my most powerful questions - those big, bold, beautiful questions that will get you truly thinking about what you want and why you want it. It comes with a little booklet that gives you a bit more prompting or explanation about why this question is so powerful for life & business. It also comes in a gorgeous little box. This means you can take this deck with you anywhere you are - at home, at work, while travelling. Never be without these questions. 

The Deck also makes a perfect gift or tool for your clients, your friends and your family. 

I've also made an early bird special with an exclusive price. The deck is only $25 when you are in the first 100 to say yes!

The regular retail rate of these boxes will be suggested at $40 CAD. 

THE COACHING - I am an NLP trained Life and Business Coach. I received coach training from Erickson Coaching International. I have been coaching for four years professionally and before that I have 20+ years in communication, marketing, online businesses, web development, media relations and event planning. I also own a pop up shop company called On the Spot Pop Ups. For seven years we have been partnering with big companies like Etsy to bring handmade goods, art and design to our city with temporary retail shops and art galleries. I am also a marriage commissioner - I marry people to each other! In all of my roles, I ask big questions to help people make this even better. My one hour sessions are $500-750/hr but for this Kickstarter, I am bundling them in with the cards to help you get a personalized launch to one of your goals. My clients have created thriving, prosperous businesses working with me in addition to thriving, resilient lives. 

The Whole Sale - $200 for 10 Boxes PLUS shipping is included

THE WHOLE SALE - If you own a store or are a service provider like a coach, mentor or consultant and want to use these to re-sell or give away to clients, this is the package for you. With the regular cost of the boxes going to be set at $40 CAD, you will not only get them at a special wholesale price but I will ship them to you at my cost as a thank you for helping me get the Little Box of Big Questions out to more people.

The Why
The Why

So why the Little Box of Big Questions? Well, I see so many people going through this life never giving themselves the chance to answer "Why is this important to you or to your loved ones or to others around you?" We spend a lot of time answering society's expectations and demands and never truly answering our own. What I have witnessed as a coach is a deep questioning of our current belief systems and the belief systems of the world around us in order to make things just a little better. Not just for ourselves - but in order to deconstruct systemic racism, sexism, ableism and a host of other -isms that we maybe actively benefiting from but recognize that others don't receive that same level of benefit. Giving ourselves these questions allows us to see inside our own motives but also how our motives impact those around us. These questions can be used to create policies, board directives, employee development plans - any discussion there is a need to go further, exploring all of the possibilities and establishing a firm foundation for goals to thrive. 

I truly believe we need to question the status quo. We can't settle for what we have right now - in our own lives, our businesses, our governments and in our communities. The Little Box of Big Questions is here to help us make things EVEN BETTER!

I'm in this world to help people see past their biases and learned experiences - to see that not everyone is experiencing the same thing as they are. That there is so much more out there in the world for them and others. These questions are for you.

Stop waiting - get your goals in motion with my kick in the ass in a box ;) I'm designing the box as we speak so I will update the kickstarter with the sweet little box these amazing cards come in. 

Who or what does this impact beyond you?

Risks and challenges
