How I got out of a funk

Hi 👋 my name is Laura Mai and I’m your happy healthy travelling marketing consultant. My goal is to make ethical marketing easy.


Sixteen days ago I started a challenge set by Alex Hormozi in his training on acquisition.com to spend 100 minutes on content every day for 100 days.


Every day (except Sunday per my religion) I will be doing this challenge and sharing what I learned that you can apply.

Day fourteen:


Wow I can’t believe it’s been two weeks already. It feels like I’ve lived four lives since starting this challenge.


Yesterday I was struggling with ideas of worthiness and value. I reached out to my Life Coach and friend Tanya Wilkinson and my Nutritionist Emmie Keefe who helped me through my feelings.


Tanya told me to think about


  • what brings me joy in life

  • what I’m grateful for

  • what I can do to show myself love


Emmie told me to make a list of other people who I respect and love. This was tough because I realised I respect and love a lot of people to some degree, and there are people in my life I feel guilty for not respecting more.


I realised that what I respect is people who have boundaries for themselves, value their health and serve others. I respect people who are patient. I haven’t felt like I am those things lately.



Part of me feels selfish for travelling and out of place in a foreign country. I’m loving my time here but I also feel a combination of loneliness mixed with a lack of responsibility to a community of like minded people. I plan to do a lot of travelling in the next year because I’ve branded myself this way. It’s become clear to me I need to


  • find a way to help the communities I travel to or help more people online

  • not travel alone or not stay in accommodation alone


I find it helps to acknowledge difficult emotions because it leads to finding solutions to the real problems. When I feel down my creativity gets blocked. The old me would have ignored this, and she wouldn’t have done the bare minimum amount of work for a few days until the symptoms from a lack of fulfillment subsided.


Thank God I’ve evolved.


Alright, now let’s get onto the challenge.


Time spent yesterday: 165 minutes


What I made:


-4 Tik toks (40 minutes)

-1 blog (30 minutes)

-1 posts for my poetry page (15 minutes)

-Instagram post and stories (20 minutes)

-Additional emails and posting on different pages (10 minutes)

-editing (50 minutes)


Struggles:


I had so many meetings yesterday, including an important final brand call which went really well.


I’m happy with my “work” work yesterday, but I was really tired a lot of the day as well in a post travel coma.


It’s funny, yesterday I realised people don’t know what I actually specialise in for marketing, which is strategy, DEI, branding and research. People assume I specialise in social media because I work hard there as well. I will start communicating better what my main offerings are.


So I did more relaxing work like figuring out video editing. I made a short reel which I’ll put below and I’m also editing Dan and I’s interview (which is a pain).



What went well:


I feel better with the content I made yesterday. It felt like me.


I’ve been shying away from having an opinion on the internet since I went viral, but yesterday I made a video response I feel proud of about a woman who was talking about her non negotiable for having a child.


People were telling her she was being unreasonable when it’s her body! Anyways I want to focus on ethics so point out gender inequality fit with my brand too.


I’ll put the video here:



Key takeaways of the day:


  • Acknowledge difficult emotions to avoid creative blocks

  • I need to communicate the kind of marketing I do better vs. just who I am

  • Making content that feels like you is easier
