Julie Hruska - Top 50 Most Impactful People On LinkedIn Talks About The 3 'C's of High Performance

March 15th 2020, we all remember that timeframe when the world shut down and many of us had to pivot. Some of us had our careers completely wiped out.

For Julie Hruska, she would teach her last 'in person' class on this day, then shut down her studio 6 years prior to her existing plans.

Julie then made her pivot, she declared what she wanted to do, which was expand in a time of contraction. Then it started, full send on getting active on LinkedIn, creating content, getting active on video, networking.

Julie posted this on her LinkedIn page recently:
"2 years ago, when the world locked down, I faced the dark unknown.

As a single mother of 3 and an entrepreneur, I had to pivot quickly to keep the lights on and food on our table. It sounds dramatic, because it was.

I knew that if I didn’t quickly shift to a virtual model for my business, my coaching company wouldn’t survive and my children would suffer.

The pivot was fast, but I was committed.

There was a steep learning...

It's true, a lot of people have a big aversion to getting on a call with potential clients.

You can be the best coach in the world but if you can't sell, then you can't do what you do best.

When I even mention sales to a lot of people and ask them what comes to mind they say things like:

High pressure.
Sleazy.
Manipulative.
Hidden agenda.
Aggressive.
Never stopping.

^ Those are actually words from a live call I did where I asked that question.

So how do you sell if your gut gets an icky feeling with even mentioning sales?

Our Leveraging LinkedIn community had the honor of having Charlotte Petit Noble drop some massive value on our group about sales calls and how to feel good about them.

English is a second language for Charlotte and she says she can close sales calls with ease by adopting these 4 core beliefs:

Core Belief #1: You are the expert. You are the one that solves the problem. You are the one who can solve the pain points.

Success to a lot of people means:

High paying job.

The career that parents wanted them to have.

A certain amount of money or net worth.

Nice car and house.

Title or status.

Beach body.

We have all been condition from when we were young, perhaps not always intentionally, but in some cases extremely targeted (advertising, media, social media and culture) on who to 'be'.

The other problem is all those things listed above are not permanent and can be taken away quickly.

We either feel like we are lacking if we aren’t there,

Or we get there and fear losing it,

Or we keep chasing after we get there.

Don’t get me wrong, those are fine things to aspire to if that is truly what you want at your core.

But start by asking what it is that you truly want aside from the influence of everything we've been told to want in life.

For me, it’s freedom, and having lots of money doesn’t...

The best post I've ever seen on LinkedIn

This post is from Lea Turner, an amazing coach who has created a highly successful coaching business on LinkedIn. 

She wrote: 

"today I sent the most empowering text of my life and it's costing me around £40k.

My son has never met his father. It wasn’t my choice for it to be that way, but it isn’t a decision I regret being made.

I hold no anger towards the situation, but today I sent a message severing him from any further financial responsibility.

Because he needs the money more than we do.

It felt really, really good.

(And it has only been possible because of LinkedIn and the incredible community here)"

I love this on so many levels, especially because Leah changed the conditions instead of adapting to them. 

It's not easy to do, and sometimes it's not right, but I can't imagine the feeling she had sending this text message out. 

We are all capable of changing our conditions instead of adapting to them. 

We are...

How to validate (and make money) on an idea before you invest time or money in it

You already know 20% more about something than the average person.

People will pay you to help them close the gap from where they are to where you are.

You don’t need to be the absolute expert or guru in a field to teach others.

You just need to be a little bit ahead of others to do so, and it’s much easier than you think.

I’ve see it done over and over again by others and have done it myself.

But people don’t try because they overcomplicate the process.

You don’t need to ditch your job or invest money or time into an idea to see if it works.

In October of last year, I noticed that I had been getting a lot of people asking me various questions about LinkedIn.

At that same time I was going through a course to learn how to build digital courses because I was planning on building one about mindset.

I had only been active on LinkedIn for about 4 months at the time, but I had a lot of success and I knew I could teach others some good stuff.

I thought...
