I’m a huge fan of working less and living more while making as much money as possible.
I used to purely coach people on productivity and performance before teaching online business and productivity still has a sweet spot in my heart and spills into what I teach today.
To me, working less is the goal. Even if I’m doing work I love, I don’t want to be working all the time and I don’t want that for you either (unless you’re into that).
That’s why I teach about creating systems and focusing on passive income so that we can have real freedom in life - to me THAT is productivity.
Today, we’re taking a bit of a different approach to online business by not focusing on the business systems but instead focusing on you and your personal efficiency.
I’m going to share with you 3 of the many productivity tips that have dramatically changed my life and helped me be more productive.
These are highly...
Are you experiencing a “Failure to launch” with your course, product, or business?
This is totally normal and typically caused by a few things…
I get it.
You want your products to be amazing before you launch them so they have the best chance of success, but what if that’s actually hurting your success?
Wanting our course or product to be “perfect” is exactly what causes us to overthink, second-guess, keep consuming, and never launch.
And I’m not just saying this to you, I experience this all the time when I’m creating new products.
I have to actively catch myself and realize that it’s never going to be perfect until you get people through it and refine it over time.
In today’s episode, I’m going to...
As a coach, consultant, expert, or author trying to get your name out there, make a difference in the world, and build a business in the process, it can be overwhelming to decide HOW you want to grow your business.
There are many ways for coaches to make money online. Some are total BS while others are tried, true, and PROVEN to get you to where you want to be.
Today, we’re going to get clarity around 6 PROVEN ways for coaches to make money online, teaching what they know, love, and are good at.
And I’m not just saying these are “proven”. I know these are proven because I’ve either used them myself to make money online OR I have friends in the space who have done it and been successful.
This isn’t fluffy minutia, these are real business models that will grow your coaching/teaching business over time. They are real, they do work, and they also take work on your end.
So listen through these 6 proven...
Creating a clear picture of your Perfect Client is essential in running a successful online business (and business in general).
Having a customer avatar is what allows us to market to the right people and speak the language THEY can relate to.
A lot of people feel they “should” create a customer avatar but hate doing exercises that make them come up with something like, “I help middle-aged dads with 2 kids who drive minivans and do accounting”.
They feel it takes a lot of time and that it frankly is a waste of it too.
The truth is that understanding and coming up with a picture of who your perfect client is is one of the most important steps you can take as a business owner and get it out of your head rather than just simply “knowing” it.
This doesn’t need to take long. You can literally do this in under an hour.
Today, I’m walking you through (step-by-step) how to...
Having an email list is critical to running a successful and healthy online business teaching what you know, love, and are passionate about.
The beautiful thing about having an email list of quality (meaning they know, like, and trust you) is that the more your audience grows, the more money you can make in your business, and the more people you can help along the way.
Anytime you do a launch, create a piece of content, write a book, or anything else, you can pitch it to your email list and they will be there to support you through thick and thin (assuming you’re building a quality relationship).
But one of the biggest problems I run into all the time is “How do I build my email list!?”
Look, there are many ways you could build an email list but when it comes to email list building, it’s quality over quantity.
I’d much rather have a list of 500 people that are engaged and loyal than 10,000 people who never open an email.
The truth is that...
Have you been hesitant to build an online course because you're afraid of putting all the work to create one just to hear crickets?
This is incredibly common and I hear it all the time when helping people build their own online courses.
The truth is that ANYBODY can build an online course and slap together some videos but not everyone can build a course that sells itself over and over again.
I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum.
It took me creating over 6 online courses until I made one that sold without ever meeting the person!
It’s an incredible feeling to get a notification that someone paid you without you doing any extra work or meeting them and it never gets old - I want YOU to experience that.
What will virtually guarantee your online course will sell before you create it are 2 things…
Today, I’m going to show you how to do both of these and...
Video marketing is taking the world by storm and, ironically enough, the more people I work with in building their online businesses teaching things they know, love, and are good at, the more I see how big of an issue this is.
Showing up on camera, being the face of your business, and teaching your students the valuable information you understand isn’t an easy thing to do, otherwise, everyone would do it.
Look, there are many ways to build an online business, teaching what you know. The Big 3 however are podcasting, blogging, and YouTube videos.
I have many friends who have created success through their podcasts and blogs without ever showing up on camera BUT there is no doubt that video is the most powerful of the 3.
Showing up on camera has many benefits that you can’t get from just podcasting or blogging.
Here are a few statistics from invideo.io’s website:
Whether you think you are a creative person or not - you are.
Every single person on this planet is a creative person. You don’t have to be a Picasso or some fancy artist to be “creative”.
Building an online business is all about being creative. Creating content, creating products, creating experiences, creating clients, and so on.
Even conversations are examples of creativity. No matter what, we are always creating.
But sometimes, as creators, we get into slumps. We get writer’s block, creativity blocks, and run into barriers inside our minds thinking we’re not “good enough” or “capable enough” to do something.
What if I told you that the best way to unlock your creativity, and the secret that nobody tells you about being creative, is that great artists steal?
Ethically of course. But it’s true!
That’s what today’s episode is all about. We’re diving into...
Copywriting is one of the most essential skills that we can develop as online business owners.
I wish that I had invested more time, money, and effort into learning how to write good copy when I was beginning my online journey.
Copywriting is what makes or breaks an online business because we’re not directly talking with people so we need to rely on our writing skills to persuade people to click, watch, and buy our content, products, and services.
Copywriting is persuasive writing. So anytime you see a Facebook ad, magazine, blog post, landing page, sales page, etc. - That’s copy.
And if it made you want to click or buy something from it, that’s GOOD copy.
The sooner that we can develop the skill of copywriting, the sooner we can start getting clicks on our content, getting more opt-ins to join our email list, making more sales, and making a difference in people’s lives.
Keep in mind that I’m not the best...
The biggest thing that will hold you back from you growing your online business is YOU and what’s going on between your ears.
Today is going to be a doozy because I’m going to reveal some of the biggest limiting beliefs that have (and still do at times) hold me back and that I know hold so many other people back from building their dream business.
In today’s episode, I’m going to be a little harsh (with love of course) and coach you through some of the biggest challenges people face that prevent them from getting the results they want.
I can guarantee that you will resonate and relate to AT LEAST one of these limiting beliefs, then I’m going to coach you through how to overcome them.
My hope and intention with this episode is to inspire you to make the moves you know you want to make but haven’t yet made and to show you that you’re not the only one who is experiencing these things.
Without further ado,...
