Where do you want to be 3, 5, 10 years from now?  What’s keeping you from enjoying the lifestyle you really want? Or from designing a profitable business around doing what you love?

Worry? Stress? Doubt? Money? Time? Others? Mindset?

I believe anyone can build the business of their dreams doing what they love IF they learn how to do so.

Most people however, when they set out to start up their own business, just think they can print a business card and design a quick website and have a business make them money. That’s not reality however.

The truth is, it takes time and training to be a business owner. We aren’t all born with the “how to know how to start and run a successful business” gene. We need to learn what to do and how to do it.

Take a nurse for example. If you wanted to become a nurse, you wouldn’t just walk into a hospital in some scrubs you bought for yourself and start poking people with needles right? You’d go to Nursing School for a few years to learn EXACTLY WHAT TO DO and how to do your job.

And even an attorney has to go to Law School. They can’t just walk into a courtroom and start trying a case! That would be against the law plus they’d most likely lose their case since they wouldn’t know what they’re doing right?

Yet entrepreneurs often think they can walk into their own business and start helping clients or selling their products and services without proper training. Now if you have previous sales and marketing training from another job or school, you could probably get somewhat far making money, you could. But you’ll get stuck somewhere. Most likely it will be in how to run your business efficiently and how not to be in chaos in the back end.

And for those without any or much sales and marketing training at all but maybe you know the backend systems, processes, financial end of it all, etc. you will most likely not know how to effectively sell or convert enough clients into your services in order to reach your goals.

There is so much to know when you start up your own business that it just makes sense to get help. It’s a lot faster too. Don’t fall into this trap and get stuck wasting time or money in the wrong places and not seeing results soon.

Here are 5 Simple Steps to Turning Your Ideas & Passions Into a Moneymaking Business:

#1:  Define your vision – think really BIG! (the new plan)

#2:  Choose your model (s) – do what feels right today

  • The Key to Designing Your Business Around the Kind of Lifestyle You Want to Live is…LEVERAGE
  • What can you add: membership model, group program, live event, online classes, teleclasses/webinars, ebooks and products, etc.?

#3: Basic business set up – technology, systems, team

  • Get the Help & Training You Need to Develop the Big Picture Plan for Your Business
  • Learn & Create Systems
    • Implement automated processes online for sales, follow up, communication, lead generation, etc.
  • Develop & Prewrite Templates
    • Write templates for follow up and other marketing tasks to delegate or reach more people faster
  • Duplicate & Replace Yourself
    • At home or work – hire someone to clean house or mow the lawn plus add team members

#4: Jumpstart your marketing – take massive imperfect action, implement like crazy

  •  Get in front of more people, more often and in more ways – massive marketing and lead generation is needed, more than most people think!
  •  Make it easier for people to buy – use online technology and your website as the hub of your business but also have Easy Yes Offers in person to make fast cash.
  •  Create your interactive, relationship marketing, follow up and sales system so that you can funnel more of the right prospects in at one time, not having to touch them all individually yourself right off the bat.

#5: Evolve – reflect, revise & what’s next?

Are you ready to Jumpstart Your Biz?

Are you an entrepreneur or a business owner who needs to make more money? Do you LOVE what you do but need to make a bigger impact?

I’ve found that many entrepreneurs who come to me for business and marketing coaching are actually experts in their field or industry and they may have learned WHAT they need to do. But they don’t necessarily know how to implement the things they need to do.

The result is, they start procrastinating. Then the limiting beliefs set in.

They start wondering if they have what it takes to make money doing what they love to do and then they start thinking of giving up!

The problem for many is that they don’t have a plan. They aren’t sure where to start.  They can’t decide what the most important priorities are to create a profitable business without working themselves into burn out.  This is a common problem for many entrepreneurs and business owners.

If you want to work less and make more money or if you want to create a 6 or 7 figure business, you have to get over the fears that most business owners face at one time or another.

You need to learn what you need to do, what systems you need in place and where you need to focus – no matter whether you are starting your business or if you’ve been in business for several years.

If you don’t know where to start or if you are not seeing the results you need or desire, it’s time you get help from someone who has done the work and who knows how to get you on a path to prosperity.

I’ve created an event called Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend where you can learn everything from A-Z to start, grow, market, develop systems for and make money with the business you love!

Just listen to what other attendees say about my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend Event in the video below:

Are you someone who is working too hard, but not making the money you need to make in your business?  Do you have limiting beliefs that are holding you back from reaching the financial goals you’ve set for yourself and your business?

Head over to www.jumpstartyourbizinaweekend.com to see all of the topics we will cover in just 3 days, November 1st – 3rd, 2018.  There’s no better time to make the investment in yourself and in your business.

I really enjoyed talking about how to make Fast Cash by creating Easy YES Offers with Minette Riordan and Brad Dobson, co-founders of The Path to Profit Academy and Podcast for Creative Entrepreneurs.

What a FUN Interview!

I created the concept of an Easy YES Offer a few years ago when I had positioned myself to sell mostly high end programs. In fact, the price of my lowest end program was $200. I attended a workshop where the focus was “making money today”. My intention was to sell my $2,000 program and I offered a flashdrive containing some more of my trainings and programs as a BONUS!   My ‘ah ha’ moment came when people were asking to buy the bonus, instead of the $2,000 program. I sold several of the flashdrives that day for a lower price than the program, but I ended up with Fast Cash.

It’s something I encourage attendees to use at my LIVE events. It’s an offer that’s specifically designed as to make people say YES and buy on the spot! It’s designed to make FAST CASH. It’s not just a lead magnet although you can use a freebie as an alternative with those who don’t accept your Fast Cash Offer. It works best when you make the offer irresistible!

For example, I’ve had people make Fast Cash Offer at my Events that cost $50 and six people bought it – that’s a quick $300. Others have designed offers that cost more.

These offers are for those who need clients! There are several ways to structure these offers!

Click on the video below to get specific ideas about creating your EASY YES OFFER, sales funnels, the importance of systems and MORE !

 

 

So what type of Easy YES Offer will you create?

Walt Grassl and I talked about Love and Money on his Stand Up and Speak Up Radio Show.  The topic was about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business.

Walt’s Radio Show is about facing your fears so you can live your dreams.  All of us have had to do this at some time in our lives or careers.

When I was working in my corporate career in sales and marketing years ago, I quickly discovered that people don’t know what they don’t know. I still find this to be an issue with some of my clients.

A few years after I left the corporate world and started my business, I found out myself in that same boat, especially when it came to online marketing and leveraging.

I knew that I wanted to make more money and online marketing was a way for me to serve more clients. But I was trading hours for dollars and I knew I couldn’t continue to do that because there’s only so many hours in a day.

Once I made the decision to use systems and automate my business processes, I had time to create more programs for my clients and was able to cut the time I was working from 60 hours per week to 10-15 hours working with clients. The rest of my time is spent marketing myself and my business, training, and speaking engagements.

Love and Money – What I Learned

The way that Love impacts the ability to make more Money comes from my personal experience. I learned that a love of self, supportive people in my life to love me and yes, a change in my own mindset was what I needed to nurture my big ideas into reality. Attracting and having Love in my Life helped me make more Money!

In this interview, Walt and I discussed a variety of business topics like speaking in your business.  Many speakers have had to overcome the fear of public speaking and making a mistake while in front of people.  I’ve experienced many of the struggles and challenges that other speakers experience but I’ve learned to overcome them.  And one big mistake that many speakers make is failing to make a connection with their audience in their intro. If you don’t do that, you’ve lost them for the rest of your presentation.

I’ve shared some issues or landmines that speakers can run into when they are hosting their own live events and ways to avoid those costly mistakes, the beauty of making Fast Cash and more.

Click to Listen in to our discussion about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business!

So, are you ready to put more Love in your Life and more Money in your Business?  I’m hosting my Love & Money LIVE! event in Sacramento on April 5th – 7th.  We have new content and speakers coming to inspire you to transform your Life and your Business.  Take a look at what we cover at https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/loveandmoneylive   I’m looking forward to meeting you there!

How would you like to continuously attract clients and build a business that makes more money – one that really excites you?

One of my favorite guest speaker interviews was with Adam Hommey, host of Business Creators Radio Show.  Adam’s audience consists of business owners and entrepreneurs who want to hear about tools, techniques and strategies to help them build their businesses.

The top and frequently asked questions from business owners revolve around time and money issues.  Time and Money issues are where many of them get stuck.

Attracting more clients and making more money are issues that all small business owners face no matter what is going on in the economy.  There are several things that can get in the way of many business owners doing just those two things.  They include things like:

  • Bright Shiny Objects that will distract you;
  • Implementing the wrong tasks or actions and implementing them the wrong way;
  • Trying to do everything yourself.

When I’m working with a client, I will discuss with them all of the things they need to do or start doing to transform their business, take it to the next level, etc.  And because we are all so crazy busy, I usually hear objections about having enough time.  For those clients with time issues,  I start them out with “clearing space”.   That means the client is to review everything they are doing and decide if it’s something that’s still important for them to do, what they can delegate it, what they can automate and systemitize, and so on.   It’s really about clearing things off of your plate to see where you can get back a couple of hours every day.

This clearing space process works well.  After working on clearing space for one year, one of my clients’ reclaimed 8 hours per week back in her life because we automated, systemitized and delegated many of the things in her business that she had formerly spent time on.

Most people want to get more time to do more marketing for their business or to get their life back, spend more time on self-care or with their families.

One way business owner can get more time is to learn how to say “No” to some things so they can say “Yes” to other things that are a better fit.

I have my clients create vision boards to stay focused on the BIG Picture; what’s really important to them so they don’t lose their focus and get bogged down in the minutia of day to day tasks.

Another great way to find more time is to learn to calendar your life. Now I realize many people don’t like that kind of structure but I challenge them to calendar everything for one month. This helps you learn how to block your time.

Adam and I discussed many other great tips and if you want to hear more of our conversation to get some tips you too can implement to  Attract More Clients and Make More Money, click here to listen to our discussion on the Business Creators Radio Show.

Here’s to Your Success!!

Today I’m sharing marketing tips that all small business owners should be spending time on.

marketingMost small business owners focus their efforts in only one area – going after new business. But by solely focusing on acquiring new business, there’s a tendency to forget or to be inconsistent with marketing to their contact databases or referral sources. Those are two areas that are the easiest to go after.

The 3 Types of Marketing You Should Focus On

  1. Database Marketing
  2. Referral Source Marketing
  3. New Business Marketing

Your Database Marketing is marketing to everyone you know…, regardless of your relationship. This includes your hair dresser, dentist, neighbors and friends. Keep in mind that it’s likely that everyone you know could be a potential prospect or referral source.

Database Marketing needs to be done via email, mail, phone, social media, and in person visits – the more ways the better! Your ultimate goal is to be top of mind with everyone you know all of the time so you are the first person they of if they know needs your products or services.

Database Marketing Methods:

  • Send out bi-weekly or weekly emails (monthly is not frequent enough for most businesses);
  • Hold regular teleclasses or events they can attend for free or paid;
  • Mail to them often and consistently;
  • Make reminder phone calls and follow up calls;
  • Connect with them on the social media sites you belong to or where they’ll see you most often;
  • Drop by their offices or drop materials by their homes can be effective, if it’s a good fit.

Your Referral Source Marketing is marketing to all those individuals, companies or groups that directly market to your target market.

These are complementary businesses to yours or big fans of yours that will be most likely to refer business to you. You want to go through your database and build a list of these people, companies or groups that you can market to. You can also do a Google search by industry or type of business or person to find or connect with more individuals or companies to add to your Referral Source list to market to.

The marketing messages that you’ll send to Referral Sources will greatly differ from the ones you send to your regular database of prospects and contacts, and will be very different from the ones you send to new businesses.

Referral Source Marketing Methods can Include any or all of the above plus:

  • Invite referral sources to be guest on your teleclasses, radio or TV show, or speak at your events (and offer to do the same for them);
  • Invite referral sources to use your articles or content in their email newsletters, blogs or websites (and offer to do the same);
  • Build an automated online referral program (typically called an Affiliate Program) that can track referrals;
  • Send referral sources pre-written email or web copy or mailed materials they can send out to promote your products, services, events or classes (making sure you have a tracking system in place of course to reward the ones who send you business);
  • Connect with them on social media, letting them know online when something comes up they can promote, comment on or share with their followers.

Your New Business Marketing will consist more of direct marketing to your targeted list of prospects. You can buy a list if you want so you can do a mailing but make sure you’re very clear on the demographics and psychographics of your prospects in order to narrow the list down.

New Business Marketing Methods can include any or all of the above plus:

  • Social networking is one of the most popular ways to do this today. There are hundreds of sites and places to find prospects online but you’ll need to be efficient with your time. You can easily get sucked in and spend too much time on social media. Go searching with a goal of who you want to connect with, where you want to drive them to (ie; your website, opt in box, call with you, etc.) and have an appropriate way to introduce yourself without being too self-promoting.
  • Find blogs and groups or forums online where your target market congregates and post on them often. Ask and answer questions. Learn how to become an expert on that site and if possible, submit content. Share your expertise.
  • Speak, sponsor or network at events where your target market will be in attendance. Learn how to “work the room” however so you can meet and connect with as many people as possible.
  • Run advertisements in your local area or even national publications or online publications that reach your ideal prospects.

Keep in mind that for all types of marketing, the goal should be to get them into your mailing list and into your email database so that you can continue to market to them. But never rely solely on email marketing to reach all of these people, not in this era; you have to connect with them in many different ways if you really want to be seen. You’ve got to build relationships with them over time and that is the most effective way to market to anyone. People will do business with people they like, trust and connect with so make it easy for them to do business with you and refer their friends to you too!

Are you ready to Start Speaking about your Business?

Do you have a product, service or idea that you want to share with the world? Are you passionate about what you have to offer?  That’s Great! But have you found a way to monetize it to increase your sales and income? Does your business make the money you desire?

Are you are struggling to make the sales you need to grow your business? Do you want to generate more income that you thought possible?

speaking Speaker SuccessIf you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you should consider SPEAKING! I’ve been speaking in my business for over 14 years which has made it possible for me to grow my business to six figures!

Many of you have heard me say this – Speaking for FREE (non-paid speaking gig) is one of the most effective and least expensive marketing strategies you can have in your business. And here’s why!

Speaking about your business, products or services helps position you as an expert in your industry or field. You’ll build credibility and trust with your prospects faster, because:

  • Speaking gives you exposure to bigger groups of prospects.
  • You’ll have opportunities to build or grow your email list by offering freebies and giveaways at events or even to make money with sales of your programs and products to event attendees.

There are other reasons you should consider speaking, if you aren’t already. And if you are already speaking, there are reasons why you want to concentrate on getting more speaking gigs. You should be consistently focused on speaking being a revenue generating activity.

Some of you may not be ready to start speaking. Why Not? Do you have a fear about speaking? Are you afraid of getting in front of an audience? Are you unsure of what to speak about or to whom or saying to yourself “who would care about what I have to say?” Being prepared and having the information you need to take some of the mystery out of the subject of Speaking will help you get over these limiting beliefs.

It really doesn’t matter what type of business you’re in. Even if you don’t want to speak specifically about your programs, products or service. It just depends on what you do or sell. You may need to be creative with your talks to position yourself as an expert. There are many types of talks you can consider. Here are a few examples of the types of talk you might do:

  • Training or ‘How – To” talks
  • Informational
  • Story-telling
  • Speaking to Sell

Are you Ready to Learn more about how to be a Successful Speaker? If I can show you ways to get more comfortable with Speaking so you can make this one of your top marketing strategies, would you be interested?

I know lots of people suggest you should be blogging if you’re not already, right? They also say you should post something on your blog at least 3 times a week, right?

blog bloggingIt is a really great strategy to use in your marketing but it’s ONLY ONE of the tens of strategies you really SHOULD be doing every month. You just need to find the easiest way to do more of them faster or in more of an automated way.

So here are some things you’ll want to know about blogging whether you’re doing it or not and then I’m happy to share with you too later on how to automate it more so it’s not taking too much of your time. Because the reality is that just the act of blogging alone won’t really bring in a lot of clients.

You have to have your blogging woven in and out of multiple marketing strategies, your website, follow up, social media and more in order for it to work as an income generator.

It does do many things for you however regardless, such as:

  • #1. You will engage your readers and prospects into conversations and action.
  • #2. You will build a community of followers, fans and supporters.
  • #3. You will be in more places at one time expanding your reach globally.
  • #4. You will prove yourself as an expert.
  • #5. You will reach people who don’t want to receive your emails perhaps; some people don’t want to read emails and newsletters, they prefer to read quick blog posts.
  • #6. You will increase your sales as more people read your articles and learn to like and trust you.
  • #7. You can manage it easily and quickly if you have the right systems in place!

What do you need to do though ON your blog to make sure it’s successful?

  • You must have an opt in box in addition to blog subscription option;
  • You should allow comments to encourage reader interaction;
  • You should have videos of yourself for more interaction;
  • You could highlight one of your products or services to get them to click over to your site and for more info;
  • You can put all kinds of ‘widgets’ on your blog to attract more attention, provide more interaction and even build a revenue stream.

How to know what to post and say on your blog to keep the content fresh?

–>> Watch my emails and my blog posts; I share tips all the time about content generation!

In the meantime, this is just ONE of the hundreds of things you could be doing to attract more clients and generate more income for yourself so don’t get too caught up with the management of it on a day to day basis, just get something going for now and be relatively active to start.

blog marketing If you are ready to get serious about your business and put a real marketing and business Action Plan into place and learn EXACTLY how all of these multiple marketing strategies will be implemented into your business either by you or someone you outsource to…. I highly encourage you to sign up to talk with me in one of my complimentary JumpStart Your Business Strategy Sessions!

Are you thinking of joining a mastermind?

Face it! Many small business owners are solopreneurs. As such, they are alone in their office…alone to envision the big picture and make plans. They are alone to make decisions. So many of them don’t know what they need to do to grow their businesses and they make the mistake of investing in training and services that aren’t specific to their needs. They find themselves struggling with time management, they don’t know what part of their business they should focus on and they have a hard time prioritizing their activities.

join a mastermindDoes this sound like you and what are going through?

A Mastermind group or coaching program can get you past all of this frustration so you can focus of playing BIGGER and making more money. Most people, like myself, who have been in mastermind groups will tell you that these programs are the best thing they did to grow their business.

Some of the benefits of being in a Mastermind group like my Live Big Mastermind are:

    • New Ideas, New Strategies and Fresh Perspectives – Being in a group of highly motivated entrepreneurs and a mentor who can see the big picture and bigger visions and opportunities for you will help you transform your big ideas into reality much faster.
    • Motivational & Positive Support – One of the greatest challenges many business owners face is staying positive and motivated on a day-to-day basis. If you join my Mastermind group, you’ll be surrounded with highly motivated, energized and positive BIG thinking like-minded entrepreneurs. Being a part of a Mastermind group and having access to the Lead Mentor on a regular basis can help you replace your negative thoughts with positive, motivating, inspired and passionate thoughts and actions.
    • Accountability and Responsibility – Are you having a difficult time ‘getting stuff done’? Most entrepreneurs do! We have ideas, but don’t know how to implement them into money-making strategies. Your Mastermind group can help hold you accountable to your goals and project timelines.
    • Time – Can we agree that time is money? Then why lose time by making mistakes? Learn and Benefit from your mastermind group peers and Lead Mentor who have similar experiences. Learn from a Mentor who has been where you are and is now leaps ahead of you! Doesn’t it makes sense to learn what to do and what not to do from someone who’s been there? Shorten your learning curve by a huge margin!

Joining a Mastermind is a big investment and a big commitment so you want to make sure it’s the right one for you.  All Mastermind groups are NOT the same!  I have heard the stories from others who invested in other mastermind groups and were disappointed because they didn’t get what they needed.

I’ve been in other mastermind groups and I’ve been in this business from over 14 years. I know what’s important to my group – I know what they need – UNLIMITED ACCESS to ME!

If you are serious about your business and the commitment to grow it; if you are looking for a Mastermind and a Mentor who gets you, I encourage you to review all of the benefits of my Live Big Mastermind. Then let’s have a conversation to make sure it’s a great fit for you. You’ll find the form to schedule a chat with me at the bottom of the LiveBigMastermind.com page.

Talk to you Again SOON!

Have you thought…. “It’s time I get some help with this business. I’m not sure what I’m doing. I’m not sure how to consistently get clients and cash flow coming in the door?”

 

JulyEventVideoRecap-ImageWell, then you really want to make every effort to change your plans and get to my next live training happening on March 31, April 1 & 2, 2017 in Sacramento, CA. It’s soooo worth the investment that you’ll be making to get here with tickets, travel and time; I promise!

BTN-FindOutMore-Blue

Let me tell you… you CAN have a very successful business and make as much money as you want but there are two reasons why you may not have gotten there yet:

  1. More than likely you’ve never really learned how to start, run or market a successful business. (you don’t know what you don’t know right?)
  2. You may have a limiting belief often buried deep inside that says ‘you’re not worth it’, ‘you don’t deserve it’ or ‘who do you think you are to do that/charge that’?  That lack of confidence and belief in yourself is much more common that you may think; at least 85% of the small business owners I talk to have some level of this going on in their head.

Some of the entrepreneurs I run into are even doubting staying in business right now because they’re tired of struggling to make ends meet, pay the bills, not have time for their family or fun – and they ask themselves ‘for what?’ Many of them contemplating even going back and getting a J.O.B.!

Yuck!

Well I’m here to tell you that this is a fantastic time to be in business for yourself and regardless of your financial situation.….you have more opportunities than ever right now!!

NOT knowing the HOW of everything you need to do is a very common problem with entrepreneurs.

You learn a lot about WHAT you need to do, but not a lot of HOW to get it done and then you try to IMPLEMENT and you fall short, procrastinate or just hardly do anything well at all because you aren’t sure of:

  • What to do first, second third (you don’t have a plan).
  • What to say in emails, webpages, videos or at live events to make people want to learn more, sign up or take action.
  • What technology or systems to create or invest in to make it easier to get it all done and reach 10-100 times more people.
  • Where to spend your time each day/week/month or which tasks will bring in the leads and paying clients consistently.

I know there’s so much more you’re not still doing or that you don’t know that could potentially make you much more successful than you are right now.

The JumpStart Your Biz ‘In a Weekend’ Event is all about being able to:

  • FollowUpSystemImageIdentify more deeply what you really want in life, your biggest passions and how to express them through an authentic-based, money-making business model.
  • Put your marketing on autopilot – so you have more time in your life to LIVE and ENJOY your life; what matters most to you.
  • Create your systematic marketing and follow up system so you are constantly keeping in touch with your clients, prospects and contacts – online and offline.
  • Create new and easy additional sources of income such as ebooks, home study kits, audios and more… in 30 days or less (the key to lead generation and credibility)
  • Leverage your message into high-end coaching and program offerings, joint venture opportunities, memberships and more advanced products and services … so you maximize your revenue per hour spent AND your impact on the world!
  • Learn how to incorporate and monetize speaking opportunities, guest appearances, publicity, radio shows, video, social media, writing a book to highlight yourself as the expert you are and so much more.

So my question is:

Are you starting up a new business? That’s great! This will be an exciting time for you. What do you have in place, RIGHT NOW, to market yourself and your products effectively to make the sales you need to keep your business afloat this year?

Are you a business owner who loves what you do? Have you reviewed your sales goals from last year and set new goals for 2017? If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to click here to download my free tool to help you determine how much money you need to make in your business this year. If you have set your new sales goals, are you feeling confident?

Or are you feeling a bit overwhelmed and questioning what you should do next?

live big eventsIt’s time you TOOK CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS!

I’ve been helping people just like you for over 15 years – teaching them how to market themselves and their business effectively to find more of their ideal clients, get clarity around what they are doing in their businesses and their marketing to make sales that are oh so vital to maintaining a successful business.

And I can show you how too! My JumpStart Your Biz in a Weekend – LIVE EVENT this Spring could be a game changer you need!
