This episode was recorded during many of the Black Lives Matter protests and during the Covid-19 pandemic. It highlights how both personal and environmental events and experiences can affect you and what you can do to help yourself in the process.

5 easy ways to boost engagement on live broadcasts

Going live is easy, but you've got to do more than that to get folks to watch, listen, and engage with you!

In this week's episode:

  • I started livestreaming on July 3, 2015, and I went live every day, 3-7 times a day, seven days a week. All I had was my phone and my Apple ear buds as a mic.
  • I started landing paid clients six days later.
  • After a year and a half of making money livestreaming, I bought a pro mic and some pro lighting.  Total spent: $150.00
  • Years ago, you could go live and loads and loads of people would pile in to watch you because livestreaming was new.
  • Now things are different.
  • I detail several things that will easily boost your engagement on live broadcasts including having a compelling title with action words, scheduling your live ahead of time and promoting it via your email list and social media.
  • Please remember that a live broadcast is NOT a webinar! Engage with your audience! (I give great examples on how to do this in the episode)

Are you wasting your time on Facebook, Instagram. Twitter or LinkedIn?

Not all social media platforms are created equal and it's important to understand which ones are right for your brand and your business. This week's episode comes from a live broadcast that I did on my Facebook profile and on one of my Instagram business accounts.

  • The fastest way to find out what's going on in the world is Twitter.
  • The fastest way to gain the attention of a brand is to shout them out (particularly in a complaint) on Twitter.
  • The fastest way to gain the attention of an influencer or a brand on Instagram is to shout them out on your instastories.

Don't you dare take NO for an answer, mindset and other ways to have business success

You should never accept the word NO or "that's impossible" for an answer in your life or your business.

 In this week's episode:

  • I do not want you to ever take the word "no" or the phrase, "It's not possible" as possible answers in your life or your business.
  • Those are not possibilities in my life. (I give detailed examples in the episode)
  • When someone tells you "It's impossible" it only means that it's impossible for the person talking...it has nothing to do with YOU, your life, or your business success.
  • Everyone I knew said I would fail as a business coach.
  • I started (and succeeded) anyway.
  • Failure is part of success.
  • If you truly want to succeed, you CANNOT accept "No" or "impossible."
