Passionate Packages 2018!


SKU: passionate-packages-2018 Categories: ,


The yearly creative sensation with Marney Makridakis is back for 2018!

Just imagine…creating an eBook or other product that you can sell and share!  And even completing it before the new year!

Many folks enroll in Passionate Packages year after year because it’s a strategy that truly works!

So, once again, it’s time to take your creative ideas and turn them into products that you can sell, such as books and eBooks, workbooks, workshops, classes, kits, and the like. Each year, I bring out Passionate Packages: a fun, easy structure to really make your ideas happen! 
It’s five creative weeks to guide you through every step of creating an eBook that you can sell, which can become the basis of any product or event you want to launch…and bring it to completion….yes, before the new year!

For 2018, I’m introducing a whole new version of Passionate Packages:

Passionate Packages 2018:

BABY IT’S BOLD OUTSIDE: How to Make Your Impact & Bring Joy to the World!

We’ll still be singing, working, and playing our way through the Passionate Packages process, but this year, I’ll be bringing a new focus to the equation: your personal impact in the world.

What causes matter most to you, or what movement do you want to get behind?

Where does your voice fit in?

How can you incorporate creativity into a “serious” world issues?

What splashy paint are you walking through in order to leave your colorful footprints?

These are the kinds of new topics we’ll be exploring in the 2018 Passionate Packages.

Finally, you can get a jump ahead in developing your product, as you let your creativity soar!  I believe that we can actually harness the movement, joy, and mirth of the season and funnel that directly into our creativity.  AND…we do it all while singing holiday songs!  Really!  You will learn how to work with the energy of the holidays instead of against it!

Why? Because the more we play, the more we produce! Passionate Packages is the ultimate blending of the two, balancing play and productivity, right and left brain, process and product.


SherylAllenPassionate Packages is sparking creative ideas and creating momentum beyond my wildest dreams! I was late on the call tonight because I was so wrapped up in this week’s assignments, I completely lost track of time! Magic is truly in the air this holiday season with Passionate Packages tied up with strings…and bling!

JudyWomackPassionate Packages is one of the most amazing thing I’ve ever done for my creative output. It has me so motivated and inspired to get my e-book written and available to others. I have been so stuck because I haven’t known what to write about, but this process is soooo easy and it leads you ever so gently in a forward direction. Thanks Marney, for your creative expertise, divine inspiration and magnificent leadership!

SandeRobertsSeriously – if you aren’t already signed up for Passionate Packages – run and sign up right away. The content is purely Magnificent Marney. When I signed up for Passionate Packages I couldn’t visualize how my involvement with a full novel could be thought about in a quick ebook. Well – by the end of the first call I was totally clear. Woohoo!! I’m excited.

0007d975-1b8a-4f9d-baa1-4879cc72a037_170x170Taking Passionate Packages began as a crazy impulse. Singing Christmas carols to write a book? But it worked. And then the next year, it worked again. Yes, I wrote an eBook. Which led to a printed book. And the process is leading to more. I’m so grateful.

JoyWhen I heard Marney sing songs to change the way I was looking at time, I knew that I wanted to listen very closely and learn all I could from her. The singing and games put all the emphasis on the fun and play, and the burdensome feelings of pressure, fear or resistance just vanished. As a result, I was more productive and delighted.

LizGowI am absolutely amazed at the Passionate Packages process! I can’t believe how easily and quickly my eBook is coming together, and I have to say, I loved the singing in class, and it really does make a difference, it really does make it less intimidating and so much more fun! This is the best way I’ve found to tap my creativity, find my voice, and complete all those projects that have been hanging out in my mind as dreams. Passionate Packages is a gift I gift myself every year.
