Wake Up and Smell the Perspective
Nearly 40 days into this romp and I found myself wondering
'Has it really always been as simple as THIS?'
Mind you, I said simple—not easy! After a few years [sigh] of faffing over Eilish’s offer, I finally embraced it and haven’t looked back.
Even the temptation to dwell on why the hell I waited so long, is no competition for watching my home-grown obstacles bite the dust.
I’ve found a way to simultaneously and sustainably grow and harvest my energy for the greater good (and mine too :-).

FEELING INTO THAT WHIRLWIND …….. I HAVE A SENSE YOU MAY BE FEELING
BETWIXT AND BETWEEN
There’s a deep need for change in your life. You are between what you feel is expected of you (that no longer fits) and feels so foreign to who you know and want yourself to be, that you find yourself sitting on the fence, unable to ‘perform’ your old roles and unsure of your next iteration. You’ve enjoyed success - status, money, the ‘right’ cars, ‘invitations’ and 'insta' holidays but it feels like someone’s else’s dream. You move from frustration to rage, flapping action to taking ‘unearned’ naps, while you stay stuck and neither you nor your business moves forwad.
DAZED + CONFUSED
You do your due diligence but you can’t buy any of the narratives (working longer and harder to prove your value and worth, relentless pursuit of more stuff . . .). All day, every day, you are being fed (but rarely nourished) about the desperate future we are facing climatically, politically, culturally and what to stand for in your values, who you should be and contrarily, who you must be if you don’t fit into the accepted mould. You’re struggling to navigate your way beyond the mainstream ‘thinking’ to discern your own values from the beliefs and relentless blasts of others.
OVERWHELMED + BREATHLESS
In spanish, there’s a phrase that tickles me - sobre corrido - feeling run over. You’re existing in some form of haze, not thinking straight, reacting instead of responding or choosing. Choking on too much information, input, learning, social media, email, stuff - a sugar coma of consumption so your message and identity is unclear.
Maybe you’re caught in the non-virtuous cycle of competition and you keep seeing what is missing in your partner, yourself. You can’t break the loop of comparison long enough to go within and harvest the treasure chest of gifts that are there waiting for you to claim your uniquely wondrous identity and value.
YEARNING + LONGING
You remember a time when you were bolder; when you awoke with a sense of wonder and awe for the possibilities of your day, curious and energised like your inner toddler, flexible and in flow, trusting the process and pushing your boundaries, courageous and playful - a time when surprises and smiles weren’t forced and you weren’t a yes to please, but a YES because it lit you up and turned you on.
DESERTED + DISCONNECTED
It’s like you’ve left yourself. Where is that glint in your eye, mischief in your smile, swish in your step, playful arc of your eyebrow? Eroded and shaken by life and world stuff you’ve disappeared into yourself, you’re here but not present. Your heart is hurt, your head too strident and you often find yourself looking to be offended or superior. You not only don’t feel like yourself, you’ve forgotten who you are beyond your titles, roles, address and labels: who others say you are.
ALONE + INVISIBLE
You’re a talented problem solver so you’ve been doubling down on the books, podcasts, programs, meditations and gurus but nothing’s resonating deeply, there’s an inescapable disconnect between gut, heart and head. You know what got you here won’t get you there. Your independence is now a liability. You're alienating friends, partners and colleagues. You know that true sustainable prosperity, pleasure and power is a practice. You might be years in or playing at the edges of the psycho spiritual space but there’s something missing and your greatest fear is that it’s you, that you just don’t get it. You’re praying for a container that can meet you where you’re at, see you, feel you and hear you - one that’s intentionally designed for beauty, truth, lightness and infinite transformation.
Wonder is the alchemy of possibility that invites and magnetises us beyond our present selves to step in our most audacious, wildest imagined future selves.
Opening to wonder is a practice that humbles us to find beauty in the smallest of miracles and tasks us to walk with integrity and grace, understanding that as we repeatedly stretch and snap, stumble and walk tall, we are the masters of our domain. We know we create our freedom through discernment and we all have the tools and techniques, foundations and frameworks within us.
We deeply trust ourselves, knowing that everything we need for our full liberation is within us, as we come back into our body, our breath each time and once more, open to wonder.
Claiming your future emerging identity is an act of bold courage, calling you into a new way of being and doing in your work and life. To become your future self you must cross the threshold from your present life into your future life leaving aspects, habits, behaviours and sometimes people behind.
To be a leader in such metaphysical fields of service means carving new pathways largely outside of all institutional structures of protection. There is no proven path here. It's an experiential rite of passage cultivating the skills to be a trifecta of small business owner, a creative practitioner, and a healer.
During my own ‘becoming’ as an energy alchemist, metaphysical mentor, and emergent identity guide, I’ve had to dismantle and recraft myself in many iterations and reimagine who and what I thought was possible in my life. I have often faced ‘silent’ loving scepticism from family, friends, creative community and clients as my focus shifted from traditional learning to metaphysics more than 2 decades ago.
Multiple year long immersions in mystery schools, metaphysics - tantra, loving presence, self-mastery, energy healing and crystals. Since 2010 I have taught Kundalini Yoga and practiced sadhana (daily spiritual practice). My traditional study was in business, building and communications design. I later ran an award-winning Brand Communications agency, (working with clients like Apple, Vodafone, Australian Bureau of Statistiscs, HarperCollins, Charles Sturt University)
I’ve been labelled, dismissed and discounted but the gravitational pull and burning fire in my heart was too loud to silence, too beautiful to resist and too compelling to ignore. My inner voice and guides were persistent and clear (when I clearly was not) that I just needed to keep taking the next aligned action, one step at a time.
Let me reiterate this hasn't been a linear or logical path, I’ve had to let go of identities I fancied fitted me like a bespoke suit. There have been missteps as I’ve followed my ego into cul de sacs and aspects of my personality I have had to sacrifice and others that have emerged, that my younger self would have shamelessly cocked my eyebrows at. I came face to face with a severely diminished self-confidence, self-worth and body image I would never have given credence could take up residence inside me. Contrarily, I emerged with a core strength and fortitude, playfulness and eccentricity I spent decades trying to quell that amplified and magnetised the synchronous circumstances and most wonderful people, clients and collaborators (joke on me again :-)
Suffice it to say I have learned identity is a moveable feast and what underpins it, is what sustains and rises, more unshakeable and magnificent.
Leadership in the Aquarian age comes from within - curious, openhearted, imaginative, liberated, shapeshifting, joyful, generous and totally superseding ‘apparent power’ as it holds space for what is emerging co-creatively and collaboratively. If any of the above resonates, let’s dive into this beautiful mystery and adventure together.
My path to Wizardry
For decades i had a successful branding agency, great clients, interesting and challenging work. Working with hundreds of clients, I saw how some were enjoying huge success, while others were struggling to make their bills. And I noticed I was encountering the same issues and patterns again and again. Even though the final solution was always different because of their product, service or market, more than 80% of the problems were the same.
The struggling clients were trying to do too many things at once, so nothing grounded properly.
They were not clear where the best return for their effort was.
They couldn’t separate their business goals from their personal goals, so their decision making was clouded
They were not clear on the unique value they were delivering
They were blind to their unique gifts and the gems in their businesses and often couldn’t discern what their clients were really hiring them to do.
They were too fearful to set clear boundaries. They were people pleasers, permission seekers and there was a lot of mission creep.
They were taking whatever work they could get to meet their monthly expenses rather than getting really clear on who they were most qualified to work with and what they truly were best at and where their profit lay
They didn’t know who their ideal client was, the one who paid more and the one who really appreciated the value they delivered
Their fear of choosing, looking bad and their lack of confidence to commit to their decisions WAS the bottleneck in their business. They were the bottleneck in their business
They couldn't grow without getting clear on who they were, what mattered to them, what they really were best qualified to deliver and what they would excitedly show up to deliver again and again with passion, pleasure and ease.
They couldn’t grow if they didn’t separate their business self from their personal identity, their business goals from their personal goals
They couldn’t allow themselves to have what they say they wanted, what they most desired
They were overthinking and making it harder than it needed to be. They often could not see what was so plain for everyone else to see. Could they allow it to be easier?
SO, I used these patterns to document and systemise my own process and as I implemented it, I began to see how this impacted my results with my clients. But I also noticed how it radically impacted my whole work experience. I couldn’t believe the difference. By following the same process each time it completely liberated not only my time but my headspace and energy so now I could be fully present and focused on my clients RATHER than WHAT we needed to get and HOW we would get it
I saw that now I was holding space for their breakthroughs and transformation rather than taking space to direct it. We were all in flow and it liberated us all. I had found my wizardry by letting go of my need to manage or control the outcome.
The surprising (and on reflection obvious) result was to create deeper transformations for my clients and consequently these shifts in perceptions produced far more empowering and powerful outcomes.
I then experimented with guiding my clients to introduce these disciplines into their businesses. Each time, no matter the industry or business it delivered spectacular results for them too.
In finding my own way back to wonder I was now helping them find theirs.
But always the gamechanger it then occurred to me to introduce another aspect that was a total and absolute gamechanger.
In retrospect I’m a little ashamed to say it took me so long to connect the dots
I shared with them my daily energetic rituals, and technologies for attunement.
I saw them change before my eyes.
The work we were doing now landed in a much deeper way.
It was like light bulbs going on and they were present in a way they had said they had not experienced for years. The consistent making space to access their meditative mind was, in their words, delivering a clarity and confidence they had previously only seen and long admired in their heroes, people like Steve Jobs, Mandela, Obama, Oprah and more.
They felt they had been given the key to the matrix.
These tools were game changing for them
They now knew what to prioritise and as important what to STOP doing. They got these intuitive hits that led them to opportunities they could never have predicted and they trusted themselves in a much deeper way.
They only did what produced the results that matters and stopped doing everything else.
The outcome was they led their businesses in a way that changed everything, not only their sales and profits but how they showed up in their relationships.. They were lighter (many actually lost weight). They were engaged and excited, more open and playful. Everyone in their orbit, their team, their partners, children, friends and extended family, first expressed they were nuts to be doing a daily spiritual practice but then they became more curious as they felt the impact of the change in my client too:
My clients were stepping into their potential, more confident, bolder, truer to themselves. They stood up for what they believed in and they were kinder and more compassionate too.
They got really clear about what mattered and didn’t spend time or energy on stuff that previously had sucked their time, headspace, resources and energy.
This was too good not to share with more people which is why I am sharing this with you now. I want you and as many people as you know to love the work you are doing and the life you are living while steadily and confidently building the life you dream of.
One of my core values is work as purposeful and profitable play. I believe you must first lead yourself so you can lead your business to get the results that matter to you.
My mission is to help conscious creative women (and blokes too) to really crack it commercially by communicating your value with such clarity and conviction your ideal clients immediately get it, want it and feel privileged to work with you and are happy to pay you well too.
I want you to show you how to work 5 hours or less per day, no more than 4 days a week, with at least 2 months off per year and make 10 times or even more than you are now.
But let me forewarn you this will require real commitment from you, but I promise you if you show up and do the inner and outer work your success in every area of your life is inevitable.
Let me assure you this can work for you too: liberating your time and energy so you focus on delivering what your clients value and you love to do by really stepping into your unique magical brand identity and positioning yourself to make success inevitable
I don’t dismiss my wizardry anymore. I no longer dispel my magical powers and, as importantly, I don’t use them to flirt, amuse and distract myself from my greater vision.
Well, Hello there Visionaire®!
I am Eilish Bouchier
After 30+ years of creating brands for globals and locals I know deeply the ones that succeed and sustain are the ones who learn from their experiences and tell the best stories.
I'm an Alchemist, Visionmaker, Brand Strategist, Kundalini Business + Branding Mentor, Design Mensch and CEO of Be Creative.
I have worked at the intersection of creativity and commerce, consciousness and communication with globals - Apple, Vodafone, HarperCollins, Scholastic and locals Ela Nedra, Ruby Slippers, Wealthwise Education, AUstralian Bureau od Statistics, Sussan Group and more . . .from top of town to newly born startups, big government and education, independent artisans and winemakers.
Personally I have consistently had multiple 5 figure months ($30k+). I've helped hundreds of businesses envision and grow their businesses to 6, 7 figures and beyond.
For the past three years I’ve consistently helped businesses double their lead to sales, triple and quadruple their average sale and move from nail-biting cashflow chaos to way beyond profit paradise. Cocktails on them!
Think of me as your new best friend who takes you on the best adventures while expanding and getting stuff done. You know I've been there, and I am now showing you how to find your way, — your tried, tested and true way - that deeply works for you, soulfully and strategically to get the results that matter to you ...
Beyond Branding Academy

Spoiler alert there’ll be another mood board here - your Personal Brand - this one you might just want keep all to yourself (or share selectively).
Magic + Mastery
Most programmes spend most time here and on your ideal client. I believe that is leading with your resume rather than your legacy. Your business and YOU are more than your resume, work experience and KPIs. Every business is started by people to meet a need or solve a problem that they believe others can’t see or fulfil in the way they can. Each brings their unique way of doing and being in the world along with their skills, their point of view and their experiences.
We’ll be divining and drawing on your past, present and future, blending it all into your unique alchemical mix. Whether you’re a consultant, coach, designer or maker, we’ll emerge with your manifesto and mission, with your clear process and practice that you can repeat. It'll liberate you to deliver with confidence and creativity. It's satisfy your client's need to know how you execute your brilliance. After this step you'll breathe deeper, sleep easier and smile a lot more.
Energy + Empowerment
Many programmes want you to create a client avatar. Instead, let’s ask who are you ideally suited to serve. What is the experience only you can deliver for clients you like, who love you, doing work in a way that lights you up. They feel you want for them, what they want for themselves. It’ll expand you both as you divine and deliver it. They'll resonate with your story, and be magnetised by your energy. When they find you, they feel a heart, head and gut YES and they enthusiastically choose YOU for themselves. They know you can help them get what they want faster.
We'll dream them up as we visually create their journey so you can write/speak to them directly and draw them in electro-magnetically
Expansion + Expression
BRAND MOOD BOARD
When you know who you are, you stop competing and you start co-creating. The difference is clear in the stories you tell. This is true whether you are a solopreneur, a maker of things or a leader of a large team or organisation. Everything is relationship. Every relationship is an energy exchange. You are now ready to get visual and verbal. You'll create your brand mood board to create the brand look and feel, colours, vibe, imagery, typography.

You’ll feel so put together you’ll be almost ready to put on a show. You’ll also feel thrilled that you’ve dug deep and done the work to get here. If you need extra help putting together your brand visuals and website we have a team of experts on hand.
Stories + Success
In this module we’ll create your soul-aligned sharing strategy and communications plan—where and when you’ll show up and what you’ll share so your clients get to know who you are, what you know and want to be known for. You’ll also create your conversation slides so you get that sales chat down for when you make the ask so it’s a YES please, when can we start.

‘It was better than an MBA. The programme completely delivered but the the real surprise and total game changer was the personal leadership. I now I do a 2 hour practice each day and I have more time than I had before. I used to shake if I wasn’t at work by 6:30 am. Now I often don’t go in until 10 am.
I signed up for business but it's totally a life and work program. All my relationships are better, seriously better. My conversion went from 35% to 85% within 2 months and is now consistently 90%+ And our average sale has tripled. My sales targets are now a ‘Can we?’ game. It’s not if we’ll sell but how much each sale will be. Our 'ideal client' loves us and they keep referring us. And there’s more. . . Just do it.’
