Speaking is the simplest, least techy, and most accessible way to grow your business.
It requires no tech, not even a website, and the learning curve is relatively fast.
The biggest requirement is COURAGE :)
I’ve talked a lot about how to get comfortable as a speaker and how to make an effective offer, but there are a few steps before that…
...like writing your talk and preparing the program you’re offering!
And that’s just the beginning. Your...
I talk a lot about the fears that hold us back. And I talk a lot about the importance of visibility. Public speaking, making videos, even just going into events and introducing yourself is all about making yourself visible to people.
And for a lot of people, it’s terrifying. I know.
So I made a video about how to figure out what kind of fears are holding you back and how to transcend them. And I don’t just want to talk about how this works. I’ll take you step by step...
You probably know by now that I’m interested in working on myself and I strive to elevate my consciousness. If you want to work on any part of your life, including your business, you have to do some work on yourself as well.
Actually, you have to do a ton of work on yourself. HA!
Today I want to talk about all the things we want to receive in business and in life. We want money, we want clients, we want opportunities, whatever. If we’re always thinking about what we want, what...
Two of the best and most effective ways to get out there and start attracting clients are:
They get you visibility and let you really connect with people in a personal way that emails and blog posts and all of that just can’t do.
So why doesn’t everyone embrace this?
Because there’s a lot of fear surrounding this stuff. I’ve talked about overcoming fear when it comes to public speaking, so now I want to talk about the fears...
Anxiety and fear around new clients is something we all struggle with.
We want to accomplish our goals, we want to make a difference in the world, and it’s inevitable that we’ll run into situations where we have anxiety about conversations which can hold us back from success.
I experienced one of those times recently with a new client.
I realized I had certain beliefs that I had created which were getting in the way of our working relationship.
Luckily, I have a tool that a...
How long have you been in the process of creating your business or product? How long have you been talking about launching a new program or trying a new strategy without actually getting to the point of doing it?
The biggest thing which keeps us stuck in the process of second guessing and planning and fine-tuning is….
I’m not even that much of a perfectionist, but even I used to spend way more time getting things ready to launch than I needed to.
The longer I...
We talk about money and we talk about technology, but the thing we all struggle with most is….
I talk a lot about how important it is to work ON your business instead of working IN your business, but how do you really do that when you’ve got family obligations and personal things going on and all kinds of other demands in your life?
It’s all about time blocking.
If you set things up so that your clients don’t schedule themselves during time you’ve set up...
You know it’s important to have a nurture campaign to get people to sign up for a discovery session with you, and we’ve talked about how important it is to have a nurture sequence set up to prepare them for their discovery session.
But then what happens?
No matter what the results of the discovery session are, you don’t want to stop nurturing them as clients or potential clients.
Does that mean having different nurture campaigns depending on if they’re ready to be a...
When we think about funnels, mostly we’re thinking about how we get people interested and get them to sign up for a discovery session, right? That’s a huge part of marketing and it’s important. Nurture campaigns are one of the best tools for keeping your brand in people’s minds and getting them ready to act on whatever your offer is.
But what about AFTER they’ve said yes to your offer?
Once they sign up for that first step, you definitely don’t want to...
One of the biggest roadblocks for many of my clients is billing. I know it’s frustrating, sending invoices and trying to get clients to send payments on time, not to mention the common feelings of guilt surrounding charging what our work is really worth.
But you can’t stay in business if you aren’t making profits, so this is one of the most important systems to put in place. And I can tell you from experience that sending invoices and reminders hoping clients will PayPal you...
