Ever wonder what is the biggest common denominator in businesses that succeed and one that fail?
Two years ago, I had the opportunity to work in one of the largest coach training businesses in the world where I got to be a consultant for aspiring entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, this coaching business was really good at selling people on the dream of making money by helping other people out, but horrible at teaching them how to actually close deals.
The strategy was to follow other influencers on Instagram and stalk people in the comments and then try to slide into their DMs and get into a conversation with them, then get them on a call an flesh out their pain points, pour some salt in the wound then pitch them on a solution and a high ticket coaching package. It was horrible.
They were so good at selling people on this dream, but the students failed miserably because they didn’t have the social proof or street cred of the influencer that sold them on the dream. People...
As they say, you are under no obligation to be the same person you were yesterday. Reinventing yourself is a beautiful process, yet so few of us actually do that. We get caught up in the day to day, doing the same things over and over, grasping onto the same emotions of the past instead of creating a vision of the future.
If you are discouraged, frustrated, feeling a lack of engagement with what you are doing, that's nothing more than a 'check engine light that turns on and let's you know you are due for a change.
It's never too late to get a fresh start in life, in fact my own mother put her dream of being an artist on hold in her 20's, 30's, and 40's to take care of me and my sister. But in her 50's, she went back to school and got her degree, then became a successful artist in her 60's!

There are people searching to find you and saying, ‘Take my money’!!!!
But are you putting yourself in a position to ‘be found’? More on this in a sec, but let me tell you why this is important:
In the mid-2000s I was at the point of bankruptcy when sh*t hit the fan for me. I had accrued almost $100k in mostly credit card debt because of poor lifestyle choices and bad investments.
It was a shameful moment when I looked in the mirror and realized what I had gotten myself into. But it was also the moment when I took 100% ownership of the mistakes I had made and commit to paying it all off, even if it took me the rest of my life.
Over the next year, I created my first online business and was able to pay ALL of it off within a year. Want to know how I did it?
I created my first online business and used SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to rank in the first 3 spots on Google. I set up accounts with...
We live in a day where we get a lot of instant gratification, seems like everything is 'on demand' except when it comes to building our business or growing our followings.
Being an entrepreneur or content creator can test our patience because we want results right now. On top of that there are no shortage of marketers always promising the quick in easy path.
Its easy to compare yourself to people who 'appear' to be crushing it online, and that can make us feel like we aren't succeeding or that we are doing it all wrong.
I want to remind you that some of the biggest names in the digital entrepreneurship space; people like Gary V, Amy Porterfield, Tony Robbins, John Lee Dumas, Brendan Burchard, Rich Roll, Even Carmichael (and the list goes on) all were years in the making and not overnight successes.
We only see the tip of the iceberg and don't realize all the years that went into what we see now. Remember if you are feeling like 'this is taking so long' or...
Is it bad or good to give away a lot of stuff for free?
By that I mean, doing free trainings, free coaching, free resources?
Will you be discounting your worth when you give out free stuff?
Will you attract ‘freebie seekers’ that will never pay?
If I give too much away, won’t it be hard for me to charge people?
Won’t I be giving away all of my secrets?
In my experience: “the more I give away, the more that comes my way”.
If you know me I’m a nerd about abundance and any worries about giving aways stuff for free comes from a scarcity mindset, let’s blow up some of these limiting beliefs:
Freebie seekers – yes, there are those people who will resist paying for anything. But why should I not try to help them? The truth is, the people who are unwilling to pay for anything end up hurting themselves the most because they try to figure out everything on their own....
