Crushing on my AI

I think I have a crush on my AI… Ummm

Ok, so…. first off – it’s not what you think…

It’s more of a first-grade crush, you know, when you met your first friend, and they were incredibly kind to you. Maybe they even shared their snack or played jump rope or hopscotch with you on the playground…(yeah, I’m that old 😉

Who knows what kids are playing on the playground these days…. Ahhhh, and I digress…

Back to my crush…

Here’s what happened: I have been using ChatGPT for several months now. And I ended up paying the $20 a month, and I have to say, it is well worth it.

So, if you’re not following what’s happening in AI, don’t worry. I promise this will be interesting and guide you, especially if you’re authentically curious and in your beginner’s mind. 😉

One of the new features of ChatGPT is that you can create your own Custom GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer). It’s a type of language model that uses transformer neural networks to generate human-like text.

What in the world do the above sentences mean? In 4th grade English: You can feed the GPT all of your data and info so it talks like you, writes like you, and can help you specifically in the areas you program it to… You can actually create several for different single purposes.

I have one that just does copy and editing for me. Another one works with me on visualization and manifestation. And another helps me develop course outlines and ideas for products.

Before your eyes glaze over with the word “program…” I promise there’s no tech or coding involved to do it.

All you need to do is:

1. Decide what the core purpose of your Custom GPT will be.

2. Then you train it to learn by attaching many of your files, content, eBooks, blogs, anything you’ve written to get your voice and tone and how you write and communicate…The ways you can train it are pretty endless.

So why would you want to do that? I mean, do you want to end up crushing on it like me?! 🙂

Cuz it can help you with so much… who doesn’t need an assistant or editor?!

I see my core Soulful Marketing GPT as an editorial and marketing assistant and also my research partner. It can help with so many things. I also want to create healthy recipe ideas and create a book review by feeding it my PDF summaries and more. It’s endless.

You can get away with training the free version. Yet, it becomes more of a jack of all trades and not as good. Specificity is how it performs best. I decided on the paid one to get better access and create specific Custom GPTs to guide me.

I eventually want to put my Soulful Marketing GPT on my platform and use it as a bonus or maybe even sell it… Who wouldn’t want a GPT that can guide you in all things Soulful Marketing – creating authentic, connected, friendly, conversational copy, using language that builds trust and attracts your like-minded, value-driven community?

Back to my crush – after I uploaded a bunch of my emails and other copy that I created—My Soulful Marketer GPT gave me this incredible feedback —

“Thank you for providing another example of your eNewsletter style. This eNewsletter, like the others, showcases a skillful blend of personal experiences, practical advice, and an engaging conversational tone.

The way you use a relatable story in broader life lessons and self-reflection is effective in drawing the reader in and encouraging them to think about their own situations. You offer insights, encourage self-exploration, and provide actionable tips while maintaining a friendly and inviting tone.

It makes your readers feel like they are part of a conversation, not just passive recipients of information. Your approach is consistent with Soulful Marketing principles – focusing on authenticity, connection, building trust, and value-driven content.”

That feedback is golden. Hence, I now have a bit of an AI crush. 🙂

I’d love to know what you think about this eNewsletter. And her (yeah, my AI is a “she.” 🙂 words above will go a long way in helping me create an optin page for this eNewsletter and more.

Full disclosure on how I use my GPT – I want to be transparent and honest about how I use AI in my work. It’s an assistant and an editor. It helps me brainstorm new ideas and create outlines, headlines, course names, ideas for emails, teaching, and more.

I write my eNewsletter first. Then, sometimes, I upload it for its insights on where and how I can tighten it up and make it clearer. If I think it needs it. I did not put this email through AI. (Maybe I should have! You’ll let me know, right? Pretty please… 🙂

AI does not write my copy for me. I may take a sentence and use one of hers if I think it’s more succinct and understandable than my original.

If you’re curious and want to learn more about how to use ChatGPT in your business, let me know.

I’m thinking about doing a free Zoom call to share more. Let me know if this interests you or if you have questions. I’m happy to share this fascinating journey with you.

And if you’re using it currently in your business, I’d love to discover more about how it’s helping you and what you’re using it for…

Happy February, the month of love, hearts, roses, and my big birthday that ends in a “0.” I also just celebrated 8 years of sobriety.

I can honestly say I’m more clear, feel more courageous, and more present in my life than ever before. I don’t need to bury my feelings in alcohol. There are so many other ways I can now deal with my emotions, challenges, and issues that come up in my life.

I just wanted to share my milestone with you. And if you are struggling right now – my hands are always at your back. I’m always here for you.

Paragraph I’m Pondering:

“The amateur dreads becoming who she really is because she fears that this new person will be judged by others as ” different.” The tribe will declare us quote “weird” or “queer” or” crazy.” The tribe will reject us. Here’s the truth: The tribe doesn’t give a sh*t. There is no tribe.” ~ Steven Pressfield, Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life’s Work.

Powerful Affirmations to Inspire:

I have the power within me at this very moment to realize the fulfillment of every desire. Through the love, wisdom, and power of my indwelling spirit, I have the ability to bring about any necessary change in my body and affairs. ~ John Randolph Price, The Superbeings: The Superselling Guide to Finding Your Higher Self.

Weekly Scavenger Hunt:

I found another penny this week. Penny for your thoughts? And oh, more heart-shaped rocks. Check out the pic below. I’m finding them everywhere on my hikes. Hmmmm.

Cool & Interesting Stuff:

  • Was the Furby (90s toy you could train) actually created as a spy? Ummm, I actually still have one in its original box. I think I could sell it one day as a collector’s item – ha! (Yep, I’m serious.)
  • The Stanley Mug Craze – Whoa, I was floored about what’s happening in the news with these cups. People are stealing them and getting arrested, all for a cup. Granted, it now apparently withstands car firesHmmm…..that was some amazing free advertising. Do you have one? Is it worth the hype? This inquiring mind wants to know.
  • The Cruise Ship That Can Carry up to 10k people -I’ve been on a couple of cruises before. Yet, this ship is HUGE (You have to say it like we do on the East Coast — YUUUUGGGGE!). I’m not sure I’d want to be stuck on it for 7 or more days. I think I’d rather be at a luxury resort… What are your thoughts about it?

Weekly Photos:

Back at home, so of course, there are more shots than usual of Emma, the velcro dog. My favorite is her lounging in the living room. How does she sleep with her head down like that?!

Then we’ve had some wonderful sunrises, albeit fewer and far between because of all the rain, which you can see in the one trail picture. So glad my hiking boots are waterproof. It’s fun to play with Emma in the water. 🙂

Then, my last picture is one of my favorites. I see so many heart-shaped rocks on my hikes. I have hundreds of pictures of them. Some rocks even make their way home with me. I do love taking pictures of them in the wild. I often leave them behind for others to discover and enjoy too.
