Welcome! I’m Teresa.
Listen, we don't know each other very well yet so I'm going to share a couple of things right up front.
I want you to know I'm going to shoot straight with you, always. We joke that when my friends want to be coddled, they call their mom and when they want the truth, they call me. It's not always the most popluar thing out there or even the most comfortable, yet it always comes from love and my want for their highest good. Turns out, it's not just my friends I do that with, it's how I do life as a whole.
The other thing I want to share is one of my core beliefs. It fuels me and the work I do, year after year. Here it is~
We all have the power to make a difference. I believe the best way to do that, and experience the unique freedom and fun that comes with a life of impact is to own a successful online business. It’s powerful and incredibly rewarding!
Around here, when you live the life spelled out in my core belief above,
we call that being the CEO of your business.
Now that doesn't mean it’s a walk in the park. Especially in the early days and as you begin to grow. By now I’m sure you wish there was a bullshit-ometer that could take you back in time so you could get back the money and time that you’ve invested running in circles, right? I feel you!
Here’s the plain and simple truth:
It takes work, lots of it, over time. You have to be willing to get shit done.
To be the CEO of your business you have to be committed to the purpose behind your vision-- and prioritize the time to see it through.
It’s not uncommon to see business owners desperately searching for a solution to whatever they think the problem is and yet not realize they are treating a symptom and not the giant (absolutely fixable) hole that’s sinking their ship.
I have talked with numerous business owners who were at the fork in the road of “I’ve got something special here,”
and “I’m tired of this shit!"
“Okay, Teresa. What stops my business (and me) from sinking?”
I know it may not be what you want to hear. It doesn’t come with all the flash & mystery that so many other things out there come with. It’s one of the most unsexy, sexy things you can imagine. It IS, however, simple, learnable, and implementable!
I’m talking about a foundation of systems & processes that free your hands to, ultimately, move on to your next goals.
You’ve tried to patch the leaks by learning every industry ‘secret’, right? You’ve thrown up the opt-in to grow your list, done the webinar, created the lead magnet, put up a website, spent hours on social media-- don’t forget the videos. Podcast? Course or membership?
The more cargo you add to your proverbial ship the harder it is for one person to manage the momentum. There’s always more to do. And my guess is it’s all so fragmented that no one told you that none of these things will work until you have a plan in place that allows everything to flow together, eventually freeing you up from the busywork.
Now that we’re here, I want to personally invite you to step into my world of Growth Strategies Café
- Are floating anywhere between $2000-$10,000 per month and you’re ready for your next shift
- Have a program, course, or product that’s proven but it's not getting the sales it deserves
- Are excited & energized for your business but you’re unsure of the next right step
- Have a few systems but you could be more organized
- Are emotionally ready for a team, you may have 1 or 2 VA’s, but you aren’t financially or organizationally ready to bring on the next round of help
- Want to focus on the "right" things in your business
- Feel like it's right there, just out of your reach
Then you are in the right place and I am super stoked that you are!
Now, who the heck am I to be helping you transition to becoming the CEO of your business?
I know what it’s like to struggle with feeling the frustration of spinning my wheels and wanting to throw in the towel (more than once!)...
I’ve had my own journey of working through the same things many others have experienced --
- Thinking I was doing all of the “right” things
- Buying the expert courses
- Feeling like I must not be good enough because nothing was working
- Jolting awake in the middle of the night either remembering something I forgot or worried that I was going to have to call it quits.
I had to step into my own personal power just like I’m inviting you to do. And I had to begin to do things more purposefully.
I don’t believe for a minute that you were given the seed of your dream to torment and frustrate you. I do believe it was given to you because not only can you do it, there are people waiting to hear it in the way only you can say it. And, hear me, your dream IS possible! Like anything else, it just takes the right resources and the right mentor. It may feel uncomfortable for a bit. You simply have to exercise those CEO muscles and before you know it, you’ll be a natural.
If you want to experience:
The relief that comes from finally
getting off of that freaking plateau
Confidence that your operations are serving your mission & vision
More time to spend any way YOU want to spend it
I've Got You!
Growth Strategies Café
The online space has been my "office" for 12+ years. The 12 is how long I have been full time and the + is for the part-time years before that when I was trying to figure it all out.
As you can imagine, I've seen and done a lot in that time and my business has morphed and grown with me. I've built websites, membership sites, courses, taught email marketing, helped facilitate conferences, mentored online business owners, gotten certifications in Online Business Management, Director of Operations and others.
Over the last few years, I have been working with five to seven-figure businesses owners. During that time, as prospect calls came in, I talked with many beautiful people who reached out because they knew they needed help. They weren't sure what kind of help, but they knew they were missing whatever it was that would allow them to scale.
An Online Business Manager or Director of Operations sounded great, but it wasn't what they really needed at the place they were in their business. I would always offer tips and some guidance but I knew it wasn't enough. I kept wishing there was a way I could help. To be able to provide them with everything I knew as an OBM & DOO, the foundation and tools they needed to succeed.
That's when the seeds were planted that would eventually become Growth Strategies Café.
Fast forward a couple of years and you've got Growth Strategies Café. It is the culmination of everything I've learned along the way, coupled with being able to work with other incredible emerging and expert level business owners who can reap the benefits of my experience at a price point that allows them to know what the "big dogs" know, much earlier.
I am so grateful that I listened to that pull last year and my heart is full.
It’s time to get the momentum going again!
