Rock Your Goals Podcast episode 68 - how to cultivate a marketing mindset - with Ellie Swift

In this episode, I’m talking with the lovely Ellie Swift. Ellie’s a mindset and marketing coach for women who are ready to connect authentically with their customers, grow their heart centred business and share their unique blend of magic with the world. 

With over 10 years in marketing, and a thriving online business, it’s been said that what Ellie doesn’t know about marketing isn’t worth knowing. 

In this episode we talk about building rock solid self-belief, cultivating a marketing mindset, and what it means to step into your leadership energy.  Plus, Ellie dishes her secret recipe to creating momentum in marketing your business (hint, it can be fun and feel good!).

We also go behind the scenes as I ask Ellie to share her favourite ways to connect with her community and market her own booked out coaching business, as well as the mindset tools she uses to set herself up for success.

So pour yourself a cuppa, get comfy and grab a notebook and pen because there’s a tonne of goodness in this episode and I know you’re going to want to implement some of the great stuff Ellie shares.

Quotes From The Episode

Procrastination is just fear in really nice shoes.

Ellie Swift

“If your mindset’s not rock solid + the self belief isn’t there, no marketing strategy will support you to catapult you forward – you’ve got to come back to the mindset first.”

“Your business doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s.”

“If you impact one person, it’s worth it.”

Business is a beautiful jigsaw puzzle where you get to put the pieces together in your own way.

Sarah Jensen

“It’s not about what happened, it’s about how I chose to respond to it.”
