Let's Reinvent Your Business & Life, Together

an online community with Coach Kristine Carey

Are you hungering for a place to talk about
life and business with other like-minded souls?

Do you wish there was a place you could share your thoughts,
ask questions, and generally shoot the breeze
with others who know what it’s like to run a business, and have a life?

There is – and it’s called the Reinvention Salon.

Kristine Carey Reinvention Salon PROMISE

When things aren’t working the way you want them to, it’s time to reinvent.

Even if things are going great, there still may be tweaks you’d like to make – that’s just how life and business go.

The Reinvention Salon is a place to explore these shifts, ideas, and ponderings in the company of others who are having the same conversations.

The truth is,
you’re reinventing yourself all the time anyway,
so why not name it and own it?

 

As a business owner of 20+ years, I can attest to the twists and turns that business and life throw at you – some of them great, some of them surprising, some of them not so good. And yet, you keep on keeping on, because that’s what you signed up for. You’re the kind of person who’s in this business of life for the long haul; wouldn’t it be nice to surround yourself with others who think the same way, swap stories, plot and plan for future adventures?

 

That’s the container the Reinvention Salon creates for you.

What are you reinventing right now?

 

Is it feeling easy, or challenging, or all of the above??

If so, you're right on track - and being with others, in this cozy container, who are reinventing some aspect of their businesses and lives, helps you realize just how much you've already got going for you, and gives you the gumption to address whatever your reinvention is throwing at you at the moment.

Working for yourself is like riding a surfboard

Even if you’re a trained professional, waves come out of nowhere sometimes – it’s just how it works. Riding the waves is what you do. And having a community of fellow surfers makes riding the waves that much more enjoyable and meaningful, normalizing and validating your experience… no matter what kind of waves you encounter, we’ve all been there, and are looking for ways to share our experiences with each other.


I created the Reinvention Salon for just this reason – as a gathering place where we can talk about topics meaningful to us as business owners and humans, and know we're not alone in the waves.

Of course, you’re used to taking care of yourself – you wouldn’t have gotten this far if you weren’t. I think back to all the times I did hard things in my business (and life) alone, thinking that it was more noble somehow, or not knowing how to ask for support, or feeling too vulnerable to share what was going on for me. Not reaching out for even just for a simple conversation with someone who could relate made going through those experiences harder than it needed to be.

 

It’s as if we’re all playing a game where we feel like we get points for making things harder – but we don’t. Instead, it drains our energy and motivation, makes things feel confusing, and makes us wonder about our sanity.

The good news is that it can be easier – and more fun! – to go through life with a posse that gets all this, has been through it themselves, and is looking to reinvent the way they approach life and business, just as you are.

 

That’s why the Reinvention Salon exists.

 

Traditionally, a Salon was a place where varied topics were discussed with depth and vigor. The conversations could be lively, intellectual, fun… whatever the topic and day brought forth.

 

Bringing this concept into our modern-day, the Reinvention Salon offers a virtual gathering space for discussions, a watering hole to share experiences, a place to think about the large and small issues of life and business, together.

Take a look at what you're reinventing right now: Why are you doing it?

 

Whether it was your idea, or you feel called to do it, or it feels like something you just have to do, I totally get it.

Ask yourself what it would feel like to have support during this time...

No matter the reason for your reinvention, I understand what it means to reinvent yourself - and that even the small decisions can feel like a big deal! - and look forward to supporting you as you go through this, and beyond.

 

Let's look at these member benefits more closely

Live Salon Gathering

We kick things off with a live Salon Gathering via Zoom at the beginning of each month. During this gathering, we explore a theme relevant to you as a business owner and a human being. These gatherings give you an opportunity to talk about and think through themes such as:

 

  1. Freedom and Ease (as it, what if things were easy?)
  2. Nuts and Bolts (addressing the nitty gritty of life and business)
  3. Taking Care (of you, your clients, your business)

 

You can count on these conversations to be interesting, enlivening, eye-opening, and engaging!

Each call is recorded in case you miss one, or would like to revisit something that was said, and is added to the resource library.

Live Co-Working Session

Later in the month, we have a live Co-Working Session via Zoom. It’s one thing to think about things, it's a whole other thing to take those things out into the world. These dedicated 2 hours give you time to work on your ideas, and leverage the benevolent peer pressure of the group to keep you focused and on task.

Weekly Discussion Prompts

Weekly Discussion Prompts are posted in the online community. These prompts help deepen the month’s theme, and include musings, quotes, discussion points that came out of the Salon Gathering, polls, questions, fun facts – all sorts of things that help to explore the theme, and have fun with it.

Bite-Size Book Club

In the Bite-Size Book Club, a monthly book inspires, offers a different perspective, and gets your creative juices flowing. Each book is indeed bite-size: short – often with pictures! – easy to read, often in under an hour. On the last week of the month, we use the online community to talk about what the book sparked for us, and share what we’re learning. It’s amazing how much impact and wisdom a tiny book can have!

Private Online Community

All of this is hosted in a Private Online Community. It’s a place to connect between our live gatherings, continue exploring our theme, share our insights, ask questions, and get to know one another and forge alliances that help sustain and enrich us all.

Email Newsletter

An Email Newsletter delivered to your inbox twice monthly. The newsletter has curated content around the monthly theme, created specifically as inspiration for you and your business, as well as reminders of happenings in the reinvention community.

Articles & Videos

Articles and Videos custom created for the community to explore the monthly theme. These are born from real-world experience, explorations of the theme, and knowledge gleaned from 20+ years of working with people to reinvent themselves and their businesses.

Resource Library

A Resource Library that grows with all these elements as each month’s theme is explored.

Meet your guide

 

Kristine Carey is a Guide Who's Experienced at running a business while being human, and who’s reinvented herself, her life, and her business multiple times by moving across the country, discovering her groove, starting her business, and realizing she has a knack for helping people get what they want.

She loves helping solo entrepreneurs and small and mighty businesses revisit the work they do, and how they do it, so they can produce more of the results they’re looking for. And she knows that it all starts with knowing yourself and what brings you alive, so that all aspects of your life and business are aligned.

When not working, Kris debates Star Trek vs. Star Wars with her dog, Finch, while they listen to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue for the fourth time on repeat.

She truly believes that reinvention is possible, and looks forward to working with you to achieve yours. Who says reinvention has to be heavy?

You’ve got questions, I’ve got answers!

What is the Reinvention Salon, exactly?

It’s a membership group that gathers live and online to explore monthly themes relevant to you as a business owner, and a human being.

 

What does it mean to reinvent yourself?

Reinventions are happening around you all the time. They can be as simple as trying a new kind of milk and reinventing your morning coffee routine, or something as large as starting or revamping your business.Sometimes you choose to reinvent yourself, and sometime the reinvention chooses you, or is thrust on you. No matter which circumstance you find yourself in, it’s nice to acknowledge and call out these reinventions; it’s empowering, and gives you a broader perspective on where you’re at, and how to move forward.

 

What if I don't know what my reinvention's all about, or why I'm doing it?

Sometimes it's hard to see the big picture, especially when you're down in the weeds of your business and life. Staying in the question has power, and being with others who've also asked these questions helps, too.

If you decide to join the Reinvention Salon, you'll be in the company of others, myself included, who have sat in this same inquiry and come out the other side. We'll offer support, mind shifts, personal stories, etc... whatever you'd like to help you figure it out.

 

Who is it for?

Anyone who’s in the middle of reinventing themselves, or is contemplating doing so. It’s for solopreneurs and small business owners, who know well the nature of reinvention. It’s for those who are bold or curious enough to explore what more life and business have to offer.

 

How much does it cost?

The Reinvention Salon is a monthly membership subscription of $79/mo.

 

How do you join?

Simply click on the "Join Now" link below, create your account, enter your payment details, and you’re in!

 

What kind of commitment are you making if you join?

Because of the community aspect, it’s important to think of this as a place to hang out over the long term so we can all get to know each other and develop trusting relationships. An initial 3-6 month commitment is recommended, and people often stay much longer once they get to know each other, and get a feel for the community.

 

Is it complicated to learn the online hosting platform?

The Reinvention Salon uses an online platform called Mighty Networks, and they've made it as easy as possible to learn how to participate. After a slight learning curve - a few hours or so - you'll be zipping around like a pro!

My Promise

Is that when you become a member of the Reinvention Salon, we’ll have fun exploring life and business together in an environment of trust, safety, and camaraderie.

Your Promise

Is to show up authentically, speak from your own experience, be open, and stay around for the shifts and aha’s that are happening!

I look forward to getting to know you, and surfing these waves together.

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to be part of several unique and inspiring communities.

I co-founded a Mastermind Group that’s still thriving years later, and have been part of several intentional communities of like-minded people and business owners... all of which has allowed me to experience what it’s like to not do things alone, and understand the value of being a part of something bigger than myself

Being a part of these groups opens my mind, challenges my assumptions, and calls me forth to something greater than I can see for myself. It provides friendship, camaraderie, silliness, and a sense that things are possible.

 

The Reinvention Salon is a place to
converse, connect, reflect, explore,
and hang with some pretty cool peeps.

 

It’s a *yes, and* - a welcome addition to your routine that’ll make you feel good personally, and help shape how you bring your good work into the world.

We’ll keep it simple, too, just enough to keep you inspired, fueled, and supported in a way that serves you best.

Spending time in the Reinvention Salon, you’ll end up falling in love with your business, yourself, and those around you even more - and what a lovely way to pass the time.

 

As a member of the Reinvention Salon, you'll have...

  • Conversation – interesting, thought-provoking, relevant discussions to stimulate your mind and creativity
  • Realness – real people talking about real things
  • Connection – and be a part of a community of people who get you
  • People who Listen – and a place to share your voice with other like-minded souls
  • Relaxation – with an undemanding rhythm that delights and soothes your soul
  • Anytime Access – you can dip into the ongoing conversation whenever it’s convenient for you

I’m in a period of reinvention, having moved to a new area while simultaneously making significant changes to my business. So, I was immediately attracted to Kristine Carey’s Reinvention Salon as a source of encouragement and inspiration as I go through this transition. But the Salon has turned out to be much more than that.

From the monthly themes and live discussions, I’ve gained important realizations to help me chart a path through this new territory. Regular posts on topics like focus and priorities, or freedom and ease, plus the included course “30 Days of Reinvention,” keep me on track with my transition and smooth my passage. With the Salon’s “Bite-Size Book Club,” I find new ideas and opinions to expand my thinking. … Interacting with the other members online and in co-working sessions supplies me with a group of self-employed peers to share my journey and offer new perspectives. And through it all, Kris offers gentle-but-firm nudges and personal acknowledgment that keep me moving forward in the right direction.

Sure, you could reinvent yourself and your business all on your own, but why would you when the Salon can give you the support of a wise coach and a like-minded community?
