No wonder your head is spinning!
I'm here to invite you to take a breath and give yourself a break.
Pull up a chair, grab a cup of your favorite beverage (yep, wine is fine if that's what ya need), and let me share a few truths.
~ There is nothing wrong with you (you're perfect just the way you are)
~ There is no one size fits all solution (cookie cutters are great for cookies but not your business)
~ What worked for Susie Q may very well not work for you (even if she did package it all up in a pretty little course)
~ You don't have to be on all of the platforms (GASP! What?!?)
~ You don't have to jump into people's dms (you're welcome!)
~ You don't have to hammer people over their head with their pain points (they already know them)
~ You don't have to send out emails every 30 minutes (believe it or not)
~ The only difference between you and the already successful people online is that they have been at it longer, they've been consistent, and they're committed to making it work (they all learned it somewhere and so can you)
I wish I could give you a checklist, instructions, and a timeline so that you could have a direct path to success. As you're smart enough to know, that would be all too easy, right?
I see so many questions online about growing a business:
- which email marketing program is best
- which hosting company should you choose
- the best membership or course site platform to use
And on and on and on.
The answer, frustrating as it is to those of us who have asked, is "it depends."
There are so many variables that we each bring with us that it's near impossible to give an effective answer without a deeper conversation. That's not to say that there aren't proven business models. The one that is best for you is the one that is best for you.
It's the elements within the business model that get us lost in the weeds, not knowing which way to turn next, losing sight of the bigger picture. The decision you're agonizing about say, which email marketing program to use, is just a microcosm of the actual issue at hand.
But you don't know what you don't know ~ until you learn it.
No matter where you are, you can absolutely rock this Online Business Owner gig.
You can rock it a whole lot faster with the right guide/mentor/expert (?) at your side, helping you cut through the B.S. so you can take focused, confident action while keeping you accountable to your big picture.
There is a reason that we have had teachers throughout our lives. From our parents and other family members, all the way from preschool to K-12 and for some, all the way through college, someone has been there to show us the way. They kept us from getting bogged down with ideas and theories we didn't understand so that we could move on to the next level that was waiting for us.
This online space is no different. Drawing on my corporate background and almost 13 years of experience in the online world, growing my own business and supporting other 6 and 7 figure business owners, I will be right by your side helping you achieve your goals and dreams more quickly, with less headache, frustration, and stress. AND we'll develop the best strategy based on exactly who you are (your strengths, weaknesses, and talents) and where you are right now.
Let's do this together!
Your Next Best Step
While the journey seems unclear at times, chances are you know 3 things for sure.
- Where you are
- Where you want to be
- You're not there yet
Together, we'll make sure your energy and resources are pointed at Your Next Best Step.
You know you want to launch your new product, hire a team member, start being a guest on podcasts and some of the other things you're bombarded with so often. Trouble is, you've been wanting to do that for quite a while now but you have no idea where to start or what it's going to take to make it happen AND you have to keep your business afloat with the day-to-day operations and taking care of clients.
Have you noticed that most everything has an order to things?
You wouldn't pull out the cake mix, whisk in an egg, bake it, pull it out, add the water and oil, then eat it. That's just NOT how it works.
It's the same with your business. Let's make sure you're working through your business sequentially with each piece supporting the next.
Yes, there is a method to the madness.
No, you don't suck because you don't know what it is.
Yes, it is all learnable.
Yes, I am more than thrilled to share it with you.
Your Strategic Mentor
You're on your way and you want the accountability and guidance a mentor can provide as you continue towards your goals and dreams.
Depending on your needs, 3 and 6 month packages are available.
I've been out here, full-time, in the online space going on 13 years now. I've loved almost every minute of it. Here are a few of the truths about my journey.
~ I've seen a lot. Some good, some not so good, and some downright treacherous shit.
~ I've heard that being an entrepreneur is a continuous crash course in personal development. #Truth
~ I've had great years and I've had miserable years, in no particular order.
~ I'm curious, perceptive, and logical. That has served me well!
~ I've spent thousands and thousands of dollars on courses, programs, certifications, and software. Some of it was worth it, some of it wasn't.
~ I've taken some wrong turns, I've taken some stellar turns. I've learned tremendously from both.
~ I've had the privilege of working with and meeting some phenomenal people in our industry, and some who I discovered were not so phenomenal.
~ I've seen trends come and go. Some I celebrated that they were on their way out, some I wish had stayed.
~ I've launched programs and products that tanked, I've launched those that were stellar.
There have been times I wanted to throw in the towel, I'm so glad I didn't.
My point is this. It's all good. It's how we humans tend to learn. Wherever you are on your journey, you can make it to where you want to go, and only if you're committed to doing what it takes to get there.
