WHERE ARE YOUR EXCUSES?

It's not uncommon to makes excuses, I'd venture to say that we've all made excuses from time to time, even when we knew the outcome would be less than stellar. Do any of these sound familiar to you?

                    "I was too busy..."

                    "I didn't really want to..."

                    "It's too hard..."

                    "Now isn't the right time..."

Problems occur when we make excuses and the outcome isn't just less-than-great, it's harmful to ourselves, others, and, in the case of this blog post, our businesses.

As a business coach, I see a lot of entrepreneurs (knowingly and unknowingly) stunting (and completely halting) their business growth from hasty and poor decision-making. It's not news that every decision has at least one consequence, but if decisions...

WEBINARS MADE EASY!

If you have an online business or you're thinking about starting one, you've probably heard about webinars.

Webinars (seminars conducted via the "web") have been around for a long time and are often used for lead generation, education and sales. I googled "webinar software" and listed five of the options that came up below. The first three options listed are more traditional ones and are what many people use for webinars these days.

Webinar Jam

Got To Meeting

Easy Webinar

Meeting Burner

Zoom

Each webinar option listed above is different and there are many, MANY others out there! Some are "wrap-around" products that use Google Hangouts for the actual webinar, others are stand alone products. I use Zoom for all of my webinars, but I don't use the "webinar" option they offer because it's a lot more expensive. Instead, I limit my webinars to 50 people and operate from the regular "video conferencing" program. (I also use Zoom for 1:1 coaching, group coaching the masterminds I run...

LEVERAGING LIVESTREAMING

 As you probably know by now, I spend a lot of time livestreaming (broadcasting live).

I use a variety of livestreaming platforms on a daily basis: Periscope, Facebook Live, GoLive, BeLive.tv. For a while, people were asking me if I had a life outside of livestreaming. I do. I have an 18-year-old and a husband at home, a 21-year-old who comes home from college for each break and a thriving business that I've built solely off of LIVESTREAMING!

 Here are some tips for you regarding livestreaming:

  • You can literally build your entire business VERY effectively and efficiently on one livestreaming platform. I did on Periscope, then I added some other livestreaming platforms.

  • Before livestreaming, you should ask yourself WHY you're there. Be where your target audience is. If they're not there and you're trying to monetize your time on social media, don't bother spending loads of time there.

  • You MUST prepare ahead of time before you go on any livestreaming...

DON'T MAKE THESE BIZ MISTAKES!

Warning: I have made most of these mistakes. Please do as I say in this blog and avoid these business mistakes!

Starting a business is tough, confusing, and exasperating. There are loads to think about, lots of new things to learn, many questions to ask, may more that you think of right when you hang up the phone with your mentor...

As I've said many times before, When I began my business, I had zero dollars and zero support. Everything I know I've learned through well over 12,000 hours (yes, I figured it out...thanks Malcolm Gladwell!) of studying, research, observation, listening, questioning, reflecting, trying, formulating, pursuing, crying, giving up (for a few minutes), pivoting, ruminating, creating, recreating, re-recreating, doing, doing, and doing lots more!

The sole purpose of Bonnie L Frank Coaching & Consulting is to make your entrepreneurial journey a smoother one than mine has been by providing you with all the resources and support I can. Please don't make these...
