>>> Ready to level up your speaking skills? The Speaking Workshops are coming! Grab your seat or get on the waitlist right here! <<<


 

In an effort to be more concrete, more valuable and stand out from the “fluffy crap” online, far too many struggling entrepreneurs focus on packing “how to” content into their marketing. 

It makes sense, on the surface, we’re all tired of the fluffy training disguised as “mindset” work, so we set out to share tangible, practical information that can truly serve our ideal customers.

But I don’t have to tell you that a plethora of free, “how to” content already exists on the internet.  So if your audience truly wanted that information, they’d have it by now.

So the question is: if “how to” content isn’t the answer, but neither is the fluffy stuff…how do you attract clients with your content?

The answer? INFLUENCE. You must...

Signature Story Case Study with Jono Petrohilos - Ep #126

We’re back with another exciting interview from a million dollar course creator, Jono Petrohilos.

I had the pleasure of being a guest on Jono’s podcast, Course Creator Community Podcast: Craft Your SIgnature Talk with Heather Sager.

Jono’s storytelling ability and strong communication skills impressed me from the start. When I heard him share his signature story (from being ranked as the worst fitness bootcamp instructor to creating a million dollar digital course business TEACHING other fitness instructors), I knew I had to have him on the show.

In this episode we’re doing something a little different. Instead of digging into Jono’s expertise on building a digital course business (though he drops some great gems in the episode), our conversation was designed to be a case study for crafting a strong Signature Story.

You’ll hear Jono share his story (like he would from a stage), then we have a candid conversation around why it worked, what process...

Cara Chace: Creating Evergreen Traffic with Pinterest - Ep #125

I use Pinterest to save recipes, holiday decor ideas and design inspiration, so whenever I hear someone preach “you should be using Pinterest for business”, I roll my eyes thinking, “who searches for business content on that platform”?

If you’re looking to drive more traffic to your website, drop everything and listen to this conversation with Pinterest Pro, Cara Chace, who helped me understand Pinterest as an evergreen traffic source— versus the daily turn of social media.

As the creator of Pin Power Method, Cara teaches entrepreneurs how to use Pinterest effectively in their business and in this episode she shares how you can put Pinterest to use for your online business without spending countless hours each week.
