In this weeks' episode:

  • It took me 14 months to land a paying client because I was doing everything myself--without any support.
  • I built my own brand from scratch and it was very overwhelming and completely different from being a lifestyle blogger.
  • My first two courses I created didn't sell, not because they weren't; good, but because I didn't know who to market them to.
  • Coaching, mentors and online courses are readily available on social media--many times for free.
  • Think carefully about what you're looking for and the very best place to find it before you begin your online research.
  • Using keywords can help you reduce the amount of time you spend researching.
  • Inspirational and motivational quotes and social media posts really helped encourage me as I was starting my business.
  • Local lecture series in your area, webinars, online groups, and podcasts are also helpful.
  • I have a GREAT video on how to find podcasts inside my Business Fabulous Facebook group. The video is here
  • Facebook has public, closed/private groups and secret groups. (Differences detailed in this episode)
  • The true value of online courses cannot be guaranteed by the price level of the online course.
  • Coaching and consultants are readily available, as well. I suggest that you interview each of the ones you're considering.
  • Coaches frequently offer free consultations or coaching.
  • I got one hour of free coaching from 25 different coaches when I began my business--This was how I "interviewed" them. I thought they were horrible so I became a coach myself!
  • Coaching can be 1:1 and group--Group coaching is always less expensive per session.
  • Doors for my group coaching program, The Business Fabulous Academy, open November 11. 
  • You can win a free membership in my Business Fabulous Academy here. (This offer is good through November 11, 2019). 
  • Masterminds are different from group coaching programs, much smaller and usually far more expensive. 
  • Live Events are conferences are phenomenal ways to get on the radar of your industry's top leaders and get incredible information and resources that can grow your business.  
  • Attending live events and conferences may be a tax write-off for your business (Plase consult your CPA).
