IT WAS CHRISTINA’S INTUITIVE ABILITY TO GET TO THE HEART OF MY PROBLEMS THAT MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON MY WORK AND LIFE
“As a completely self-taught Graphic Recorder, over four years I’d built up a graphic recording & whiteboard video business. But I found myself feeling isolated and overwhelmed by the business side of things, and dealing with persistent issues that all artists struggle with — that awful critical voice in my head!
Resources to address what I was struggling with were few because of how specific our industry is. Fortunately, Christina Merkley was offering a Magic Marker Retreat: a two-day intensive that focuses on the more advanced aspects of our work. She developed the agenda based on what the participants wanted — anything from techniques, business development, confidence issues… you name it!
Over the course of two days we learned from each other; the other Graphic Facilitators and Graphic Recorders in the course had questions that I hadn’t thought of, and likewise they had answers to some of my questions.
However, it was Christina’s intuitive ability to get to the heart of my problems that made a huge impact on my work and life. She gently pulled the blinders off the sides of my head and we identified things I hadn’t considered that were hindering my ability to grow. I’ve had a massive change in my outlook. I no longer feel like I’m overwhelmed and I have the tools to deal the things I’d been struggling with. Two of the exercises we went through are tacked to the wall above my office computer, where I see them every day.
Magic Marker Retreat couldn’t have come at a better time, and I know Christina’s a trusted resource when I need coaching in the future!”
