Listen To My Latest Podcast Episode:
Meet April Beach, one of the OG lifestyle entrepreneurs who excel with helping business owners nail their signature method. In today’s episode we cover the difference between methods and frameworks, how having a solid offer is critical BEFORE adding speaking to your biz, plus her new fav platform - Clubhouse (specifically how to leverage its unique benefits in your business).
I’m thrilled to share with you my recent conversation with Tyler J McCall on how visibility served as a catalyst for his business growth.
If you haven’t yet met Tyler, he’s a business and Instagram marketing strategist for online business owners and digital entrepreneurs (and an all around cool human).
We had so much fun during my interview on his show, the Online Business Show (catch that episode here), that I wanted to turn the tables and ask HIM #allthethings.
In this episode we’re talking about Instagram (of course), but also the behind the scenes of putting yourself out there with insights that others just aren’t talking about when it comes to putting yourself out there building an online business. Tyler shares insights, vulnerable admissions and key lessons he learned on his journey creating Followers to Fans Society and the Online Business Association.
Here's few of my favorite highlights from the episode.
A few years ago I had the joy of seeing someone I trained take the stage.
To be honest, I didn’t think there’d be a better feeling than standing in front of an audience, seeing their eyes light up, experiencing the adrenaline and high of speaking on a conference stage.
Until the moment I watched my first client take the stage. I imagine it’s like watching your kid perform the lead role in a school play (but more businessy).
Now my favorite moments in my week are reviewing our weekly wins report, where I scan through the notes, posts and wins of my clients.
So when one of my Speak Up to Level Up clients reached out and asked if she could share how she used what she learned inside my program to LAUNCH her business, I was thrilled.
Meet Sarah VanHoose, a Ramsey Preferred Finance Coach, mom and full time leader in a healthcare organization.
In this episode she’ll share with you how speaking helped her find her messaging,...
What do you do when you feel like you've been doing a lot of work to put yourself out there speaking, but it's not actually driving leads? I recently got a question around whether or not guest speaking was a big fat waste of time. Today, I answer this question head on and share insights on what I learned in 2020 (including how many guest speaking events I did in 2020). Plus share specific questions to help you troubleshoot when you feel stuck.
I believe that speaking is far more than sales (though you DO want to ensure you have a clear path between speaking and revenue generating activity). But speaking is also about IMPACT.
You do not have to sell from the stage for a speaking event to be impactful, you don’t need 500 opt-ins for a guest lecture to be a success. The beautiful part of running your own businesses is YOU define success.
Speaking isn't always about directly driving leads,...
When people make a shift in their careers or in their business, typically, they aren't scared of the big goal they set out for themselves. They aren't scared of success. People are scared of starting off and being seen as small. <—- Brendon Burchard shared something similar to this last week during a training event and it really got me thinking about where many of my clients and students get stuck.
So in this raw, unplugged episode, I’m sharing tangible actions to take to stop the self sabotaging head game that happens when you start leveling up (especially when getting more visible).
This is a must listen for any Entrepreneur who’s working on a big level up in the next 12 months.
“People aren't scared of success. They’re scared of starting off and being seen as small.” Brendon Burchard
This is a reality. It's no wonder we think like this because in the Facebook groups and the programs we're in, we see the...
Creativity is a gift as an entrepreneur.
But sometimes our creativity can overtake our decision making in business.
Like when we get a little too precious with that canva graphic, trying to make “just the right quote card” that perfectly blends our aesthetic while making a statement.
But it gets little to no engagement on Instagram.
Meanwhile, a screenshot of your notes app gets hearts for a week!
And let’s get real, sometimes we get a little too attached to our marketing creative and make emotional decisions, versus data driven ones.
That’s exactly why I brought on marketing strategist Dawn Foster to share her approach, which is rooted in data, helping you incorporate you and your WHY into your brand while being making strategic.
With holiday season around us, many personal brands pull back over the holidays and lose traction on their visibility.
In this live session I share 3 specific things you can be doing over the next 6 weeks to boost your authority and start 2021 strong.
1. Commit to consistency.
Pick one platform and get really consistent with it and show up with the best version of you.
2. Share shoutouts.
If you want to be seen as a credible authority in your industry, you have to tell people you are! This means when people tell something nice about you, market yourself and tell people about it.
3. Book yourself a guest talk.
You don't have to be on a big stage or have a fancy talk all designed right now to book your first guest talk, you just need to lose your guest-speaking virginity and just start doing it! The more you demonstrate you're an authorty by speaking on stages, the more stages you will book.
And for online entrepreneurs looking to speak...
In today's episode, you’ll hear from my Speak Up to Level client Milan Kowalewski, an online marketing strategist for aesthetic providers and MDs in New York City. As a marketer and podcast host, he has experience behind the mic, but found himself spending hours each week preparing notes before hitting record. He wanted to find a way to prepare more efficiently while feeling confident that his message would have high value to his audience.
Listen in to learn the exact steps he took and how his speaking style has evolved over the last few months as he’s leveled up his speaking skills.
“I came to this realization that I really plateaued in where I could take myself. It felt like I was not able to produce fast enough and I was always catching up. I wasn't able to batch anything. I wasn't able to grow in my own...
Have you ever wondered how some coaches and consultants land 5 to 6 figure corporate contracts?
Meanwhile, you might be sitting over here trying to up your prices or figure out how to make that little baby nugget offer work.
But what if YOUR offer could work for a corporate client?
Or what companies were looking for workshop speakers to teach on the EXACT topic that you are the expert in?
Open up your google docs and get ready to take ALLTHENOTES because this week’s guest is bringing the FIRE.
Meet RJ Connell.
She’s the CEO of RJC Consulting –– a corporate consulting firm that provides training for BIPOC entrepreneurs and allies to help them land their first, next, or biggest corporate contract. They teach scalable business systems, using research-based sales and business techniques, equipping entrepreneurs with the tools they need to navigate entrepreneurship successfully through a corporate lens.
When I met RJ last year I knew immediately...
Two short weeks ago I shared about the moment I made a huge, unexpected pivot in my business and rebranded in less than 48 hours (learn all about that here).
Lesson learned, you don’t mess around when it comes to researching names for your business, podcast and programs. And even if you’ve think you’ve done your due diligence, if you don’t understand trademarks and statues and classes and *insert other legal mumbo jumbo here*, you’re most likely not protecting your intellectual property.
As an online business owner, you’ve got to cover your assets (namely, your content).
That’s why I interviewed my newly acquired attorney and am sharing with you my missteps (hello unexpected cease and desist letter leading to a podcast show name revamp), so that you can learn from my mistakes and we can all do better at this whole online business thing.
On this episode, attorney Paula Yost is answer these important questions:
