I’m looking for 10 entrepreneurs who would like create more

I’ve got an invitation for you. Here’s the simple version: I’m inviting up to 10 transformational entrepreneurs who want to work with me over the course of five months who would like to create the following core results: Consistently make money in their business Craft their message that represents ALL of who they are, which skyrockets their confidence and also attracts their dream clients Have a marketing plan that feels amazing AND gets results consistently Activate their magic in deeper ways to create more ease in their life, business, and in their money Side effects typically include: increased confidence, self-trust, clarity on what to offer and what to charge, knowing how to grow your business instead of “hope” for things to change, and much more. This isn’t a 5-figure investment, in fact it’s the most affordable way to work with me and get some private time with me as well as live time in a small group setting. I’ve designed this after doing some deep soul searching about how to help people get real results and keep it a doable investment. If that sounds like something you are looking for, awesome. Read on. If not, totally cool and no need to keep reading. Here are the details… Since you are still reading, this tells me you’re creating something that lights you up. You know that your work matters. You may be just starting out or been doing your work for years. Either way, you’d love to grow your business with more consistency, ease, and magic. The bottom line is you’d like to make more money doing the work you...
How to Use a Friends and Family Letter to Attract Clients (template and tips)

How to Use a Friends and Family Letter to Attract Clients (template and tips)

How do you talk to friends and family about what you do? And can they be a source to attract clients that you haven’t been utilizing? How you get paying clients, especially when starting out, can feel like a big deal. Not to mention hard and awkward at times. You have to start where you are. Marketing yourself in alignment is part of this process. Being visible in your craft is another part. Do people even know what you are doing? Or have you kept it a secret from friends and family? Are you posting stuff appropriately on social media? What do I mean by appropriate? Well… don’t let desperation and doubt seep into your connections. A few things to NOT do: Create a Facebook group and add people in it Post a video and tag everyone you know it, unless you have their permission of course. Friend people, then try to sell them in the next conversation. You aren’t going to start out with thousands of people on your email list. You aren’t going to start with being invited to speak everywhere. It’s not likely that your post on Facebook will go viral and The Today Show will call you next week. It could happen, but what if it doesn’t? How do you REALLY build your business? Pause. Breathe. We live in an abundant universe and building your business is about building relationships. Before you let your friends and family know what your big vision is, use wisdom. I’m not an advocate for sharing your heart and vision with the naysayers in your life. You know the type… the well-meaning...

{Soulpreneur Sunday} Powerful coaching vs nice coaching

Are you coaching to be liked? Or to make a difference? As coaches, especially with the gift of empathy and seeing someone’s potential, it can be easy to get into the mode of nicey-nice coaching. As a coach, sometimes our job is to tell people what they don’t want to hear. It’s not our job to determine how our client feels, that’ is their choice. It’s not about delivering truth bombs just because we can, it’s about holding up a mirror for the client to see their own patterns so they can create more possibilities rather than limiting their potential with the pattern they are engaging in. I remember some of the truth bombs previous coaches have told me in the past and it wasn’t always pleasant. In fact, at the time, I often got really mad and looked for ways to support my story, instead of seeing the truth in their coaching. In every instance I got a breakthrough. It required my coach to be honest with me, even when I didn’t want to hear it. Have you ever held back from being honest with a client because you are afraid you would make them mad, even so mad they may want to quit your program? I love Rich Litvin’s position on powerful coaching and it gives you something really good to think about, especially if you are used to being the “nice” coach. (His book he co-wrote with Steve Chandler, The Prosperous Coach is a must-read for coaches.) If you are stuck in a pattern of being the nicey-nice coach, is that really creating more for your...

{Soulpreneur Sunday} This works better than charging what you’re worth

Charge what you’re worth. You’ve probably been told that this one way to raise your prices. I used to subscribe to this motto also; I used to teach it. But think about it for a second: how can you possibly charge what you’re worth? Your value is infinite. You are priceless. How can you put a price tag on what you are worth? The other thing I heard was “Charge what your client is worth,” because their worth is so great. But we can use the same argument with your client – they are priceless. So how do you raise your prices? Before that question, you need to answer the foundation question: what is the price that’s in alignment for you? Embody THAT price, then when you evolve into a higher price point, it’s time to ask the question of how to raise your rates. In Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Big Magic” she talks about how your creativity has an energy that taps you on the shoulder and asks you to bring it into the world. That creativity is your book, your business, your program… Your business has a voice, it has consciousness. Have you asked your business how much it would like to charge its products and programs? If this is the first time considering that concept, it can sound a little wacky. Maybe downright crazy. Here’s the thing: when you develop this kind of communication with your business, things like pricing, attracting clients, launching programs and your confidence will be much easier. Get the full scoop in my video below. Things to avoid when raising your rates: Nice...

{Soulpreneur Sunday} How to Get Through a Slump

Have you signed up for a program and about halfway into the program and you hit a slump? You wonder if this is going to work. You’re tired. And you may even be tired of being accountable. I’ve been running 12-month masterminds since 2009 and I’ve been part of 12-month masterminds throughout that time as well and I notice this happens in every group. When I have asked colleagues and my mentors about it, it happens there too. What is it? Slump time. When you were really excited and then life hits. Or you get tired. Or you had your hopes up and something didn’t quite work out. Or you realize those old patterns that have sabotaged you in the past show up again just as you decide to really go for it. It’s common for your energy to pull back and the after-glow of upleveling wears off. Not only does it happen about 4-6 months into a 12-month program, a couple of things often happen: 1. People wonder if they have what it takes 2. The resistance of change gets bigger 3. Excuses from the past can come alive (things you thought you were done with) 4. You may even want to quit (the program, your business, working so hard, worrying, something) 5. You may even create a legitimate distraction or drama to stop you from showing up, that way it’s easier to “quit.” Are any of these things showing up for you? Where are you uncomfortable? What distractions are showing up that take you out of creating your life? It’s always interesting to see what happens in...

{Soulpreneur Sunday} You can’t do anything for your clients.

You can’t do anything for your clients. I heard this from a trainer and knew it was true. I remember the first time I hosted a 12-month mastermind with about 10 clients. Half of them were creating improved results. Half them weren’t. I looked at what was going on for my clients. Why were some of them “successful” and others weren’t, at least in that timeframe. I also looked at the mastermind I participated in. Same thing: some of us had created the tangible money results and others hadn’t. Bottom line: when the person does the work, it works. The question then becomes are the results duplicatable and sustainable? Let’s break this down into the Marketing Archetypes: Guru Stars don’t care a whole lot about their client’s results. In fact, I recently heard a charismatic Guru Star speak at an event and he said this from stage to an audience of over 200 people: “I don’t give a shit about my client’s results.” Hmmmm….that can actually be a really healthy outlook. You just focus on delivering value and it’s up to the person to take it and do something with it. Truth Guides on the other hand, ofter over-care about their clients results. They often take it personal if their clients don’t get results. The shadow side of this is Truth Guides can attract the type of client who will blame the coach if they don’t get results. This is typical if the Truth Guide pretends to be a Guru Star and markets in that archetype. Why? The client wants to be told what to do (which is what...
