👇🏼 It's funny. The more I grow in my business, the more I realize it's NOT about what you know. Knowledge is a dime a dozen. ✨ Hell, I left college 2 semesters early because I didn’t believe it was what I needed to be successful. ✨ I have to giggle a bit, because...well.. if all it took was more knowledge to be a successful entrepreneur, well... everyone would be hella successful. You can read ALL the self help books, but if you don’t take messy action, you don’t win. ✨ You agree? 👇🏻 ✨ I've realized over the years of coaching entrepreneurs what REALLY matters. And that's 3 things. Period. . ASKING FOR WHAT YOU WANT. GRIT. RESOURCEFULNESS. . Screw how much you know. That's such a minuscule piece of the puzzle. If anything, it's the last freaking thing I care about. I care about how resilient you are when someone says no or you want to give up. Grit to jump in the mud & push through the mess when shit doesn't go your way. Courage to ASK for what you want in your pricing and in your career. Resourcefulness to scrape off your knees & create a solution to get back up when sales are down. Commitment to get really really messy without all the answers. I care how hardworking you are when work isn't always fun or easy. Decisiveness- How fast can you make a decision? Being wishy washy doesn't cut it in entrepreneurship. An openess to be really fucking scared, because well.....this route is scary. I care about what you're willing to sacrifice to make your dream work (yes, it takes a sacrifice of SOMETHING in your life.) Radical responsibility for choice and decision. ✨ I care about how resourceful you can get when you need to make something happen, quickly. Finding answers, finding money, finding help, etc. THAT is the most most powerful skill of a female entrepreneur. Passion to share your message and show up- every. single. day. I care how humble you are & how open you are to continuously learning. I care about how hungry you are, because---well, the honest truth is, it's not the smartest who win, it's the hungriest. Knowledge is power? Nah. Action is power. Asking for what you want is the magic. ✨#RaiseYourHand
My entrepreneurial bug bit me (hard) at 8 years old, because of one word. ✨ BARBIES. 👠👛 ✨ My mom told me I had to buy my Barbies myself, so I quickly learned about making moolah. When I learned the the beautiful energetic exchange of sales, I was hooked. If neighbor Carol bought 6 bracelets, I could get my dream Barbie!? ✨ I pulled up my sleeves & launched my first business (of many to come). ✨ I spent hours hot gluing (hideous) plastic glittery jewelry bracelets in my basement until curfew. I purchased the beads from a fabric store down the street. ✨ My friends would bike over after school & ask to play tag. My reply “Sorry guys. 10 more bracelets to glue today.” ✨ Monopolizing my block was my mission. Making bffs with rich lady Carol next store who “loved my pretty bracelets” was my life. 😂 ✨ It wasn’t the most fun summer. But, School Teacher Barbie was on my mind. I (obviously) elected my mom as my personal assistant & office manager. By office manager, I mean she helped me print the crappy looking 1998 Clip Art flyers to put in mailboxes. LOL. ✨ The lesson here for you? ✨ I often got home from days of knocking on doors or “sales calls” very down in the dumps. Was it my hideous clip art Ads? ✨ Someone said no. What do I do, Mom?” “Go knock on their door & ask, Ang.” “Make another call. You don’t stop or give up just because one person said no” ✨ My parents taught me 2 very valuable things about getting what you want in life & I want to share them with you, to remind you how powerful you are. 👇🏻 #1. The more awkward conversations you have (the more you dance with fear), the easier life becomes. Oh, and the more you’ll hear yes. # 2. No one is handing it to you. You have to ask for what you want. Raising your hand and unapologetically asking for what you want, is the secret to success. #RaiseYourHand #BookSneakPeak
Can we get brutally honest? Ok, perfect. We are all “waiting” for something. What are you waiting for? ✨👇🏻
BE ON EVERY SINGLE SOCIAL PLATFORM, EVERY SINGLE DAY, IN ORDER TO GROW YOUR AUDIENCE AND MAKE MONEY ONLINE.” BLAHHH. This is horse poop.💩 ✨ This is ludicrous for you newbie online coaches, right? Wanna poke a pencil in your eyeball when you hear this? I, cool. Me too. ✨ I love you to the moon Gary V, but for the MAJORITY of you newbie coaches, this will cause you to throw in the towel and give up in your biz. ✨ Many platforms may sound dandy on paper, but it’s not only unrealistic but it's NOT smart as a marketer who is looking to attract an engaged audience & monetize consistently. Aka, actually make money and be focused in your biz. Not a chicken w your head cut off who wants to give up every other day. Lol. 🐔 ✨ I feel your stress, because I was you. The first few year of my business I tried to grow on EVERY SINGLE platform ALL AT ONCE. 😳 Youtube, podcast, Facebook, Pinterest, periscope, email, live video, instagram... etc - I was BURNT OUT. 😩 This lack of focus wasn’t allowing me to really CONNECT with my ideal client or create sellable content. ✨ I gave up and restarted my business 1827328 x’s, because I felt so overwhelmed with my 187 platforms. ✨ So, WHERE should you spend your time as a newbie who wants to make money online? Let me keep this simple. Because, simplicity always wins. I want you to master 2 platforms. Yup. That's it. Only 2. Not 50. Only 2. I want to you to get REALLY good at 2 social platforms that will help you to drive traffic to your offers and build your email list. I want you to MASTER 2 platforms that alignment with your zone of genius (audio, video, writing) and also a platform that you enjoy. Because, well, if you don't LOVE IT, you won't stay consistent. I am OBSESSED with audio & video, so that's where I nurture my audience. That's where I spend my time as a marketer & that’s where I dedicate my time and passion. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, I want you to ask yourself these 2 questions. You can answer them below for me too ;) ✨ #1: What 1-2 platforms can I see myself mastering and creating content on every day? #2: Is my ideal customer hanging out on these two platforms? 👇🏻
It’s all fun and games ... until you desperately make friends with Hank your Mailman everyday. #BabyGrandma problems.
