‘Is marketing making us ill?’ That is the question marketer and coach Lynn Serafinn poses in this eye-opening, informative and inspiring read. A bold, holistic and often spiritual look not merely of the world of advertising, but also of our entire world view, this book reveals how our relationships with Self, others, our businesses, our economy and the Earth impact every aspect of our lives. Addressing both the conscious and unconscious mechanics of marketing, Lynn shows the impact consumer culture has upon our physical and emotional health, our economy and the delicate ecological balance of our natural world. A book as much for the conscious consumer as the business owner, this book shows why traditional ways of selling are ultimately doomed to fail, and how both business owners and consumers can begin to heal the world by embracing a new paradigm Lynn calls ‘The 7 Graces of Marketing’.

‘Reading Lynn Serafinn’s list of the marketing graces is a liberating experience. It reminds us that marketing can be either a thing of beauty or a source of our collective discontent. It reminds us that the choice is not ‘Do I market or do I keep my integrity?’ but rather, ‘How can I make my marketing more gracious and graceful every day? How can my own marketing be a part of the healing of the world?’ Lynn paints it out so clearly–for each virtue, there is a toxic mimic (twice the calories and none of the nutrition). And we can choose: do we want our marketing to be the bright neon lights of Coca Cola or the beauty of candle light and herbal tea? Marketing shouldn’t feel like we’re holding our breath just waiting to be discovered as frauds. It should feel like easy breathing. Lynn’s astounding contrast of virtues and vices is such an excellent guide. I can’t wait to dive deeper into it.’

‘People who effect great change in the world are usually courageous individuals. They see something that seems wrong to them and are not afraid to point it out and offer alternatives. For them, it is not enough just to see the paradigm shift; they know a personal commitment to that change is essential. In The 7 Graces of Marketing, Lynn Serafinn courageously follows in the path of those who have stood up for what was once the contrarian view. She asks a huge question, and answers it with the precision of the academic she is, pointing the way to what will surely become the new paradigm of marketing.’

~ Shelagh Jones

Bringing our goods and services into the marketplace is an art to be celebrated, rather than manipulated. Lynn Serafinn has brilliantly pulled the deceptive curtain back on marketing and returned grace and dignity to this ancient practice. The 7 Graces of Marketing eloquently teaches us how to be authentically visible and, at the same time, make a positive impact on humanity.’

‘The question you must always ask yourself in a good marketing campaign is, “Do I like booby traps, hype and buffoonery, or prefer something more honest and rewarding?” The 7 Graces of Marketing exemplifies and expands upon this idea, asking you to reflect upon the integrity of your marketing strategies in a way that is good for sales, for business, for your customers and the world.’

~ Dan Hollings

‘Why is Lynn’s book what we (marketers) and the world needs? Here’s an anecdote: Yesterday I was listening to a radio interview with a famous photographer talking about Bob Dylan and his CD covers. At some point he said, ‘That particular CD cover was so true, so authentic, so real. Do you know why? Because it was NOT chosen by marketers but by Bob Dylan himself!’ I felt a sting in my true, authentic, marketing heart. Like that, The 7 Graces of Marketing brings authenticity back into our marketing. Marketeers of all ages, experiences, regions and specialisms: read this book and take care not only of our customers and our planet, but also our profession and image.’

~ Ward Vandorpe
Founder of Expert Marketeer

As you read this book, you will see your business, your beliefs, and your habits as a consumer reflected in the pages and called into question. From there I am inspired to think that we can truly create change that is not promoted by fear, acquiescence, lack and addictions. Imagine the possibilities! What Lynn has created here is nothing short of brilliant! Extraordinary!’

~ Tambra Harck

~ Stephanie Gunning

We’ve sought for alternatives to business as usual, but there have been none–until now. In The 7 Graces of Marketing, Lynn takes us into a completely new and evolved paradigm of marketing, one which redefines the purpose and function of marketing as the expression of who we are and what we value. If you are interested in how to be more intentional and thoughtful when you engage in commerce, be it as a consumer or as a seller of goods or services, read this book. If you are committed to bringing more connection and healing into our world, read this book. If you are ready for the paradigm shift to an enlightened, expansive, inclusive way of marketing and doing business, read this book. You will be transformed.’

‘The 7 Graces of Marketing is an inspirational guide for marketing’s evolution. I had always looked at marketing as a necessary evil. Reading Lynn’s book allowed me to release some unconscious guilt surrounding the work I do in getting my own and my clients’ messages out to the world. She provides a neat checklist to make sure conscious marketers don’t fall into old methods. I now see that many influential corporations adhere to some of the “graces,” while they still can’t let go of some of the “sins.” Only we, as consumers can help nudge them into compliance.’

~ Renee Duran

‘This book allows us the opportunity to lift “marketing” out of the gutter and elevate it into a thing of integrity.’
