Ten Days of Social Media Content

Ten Days of Social Media Content

As a coach and online business owner, I know how hard it is to come up with things to talk about on social media, especially if you're just starting out. There was a time when a simple newsletter would take me four hours to write. 

FOUR HOURS!!!

Facebook posts were impossible to figure out and I'd have to save them on my computer and come back to them later because I'd be stressing out so much and couldn't handle the pressure.

How To Tier Your Coaching Packages So More People Can Invest In Your Services

"I can't afford it."

We've all been there.

You had an amazing Discovery Call or Consultation, and you're really connecting with the other person on the line.  You're positive it's a sure thing. 

You get to the end of the conversation, where you share with them the length of the program, all of the goodies and what they'll receive, possible results, and...the cost of the program.

Sales Funnels: How to Create a Business Model That Works

For an online coach + business owner, a sales funnel is probably the most important marketing tool you have. And yet many entrepreneurs (coaches, digital nomads, etc.) - both new and established - have no clear understanding of what a funnel is or how this business tool works.
 
As you can imagine, failing to fully understand this critical part of your business means fewer sales, lower profits, and ultimately, an unstable business.

Does 'networking' and 'marketing' turn you off?

Does 'networking' and 'marketing' turn you off?

When you think of the words 'networking' and 'marketing', what comes to mind?

Do you think businessmen in suits, handing their cards out, trying to make the sale?  

Or do you think about connecting with people on a deeper level, making friends and having fun conversations?

Feel the Fear + Do It Anyway

FEARLESS.

Do you hate that word as much as I do?

It causes such a visceral reaction within me.  Like, makes my body really warm and tingly, but not in a good way. 

I am NOT fearless.  I feel alllll the fear when I'm making big decisions.

My Top 5 Tips to Creating a Killer Social Media Presence So You Can Attract Dream Clients You Want to be BFF's With!!

1. All of your social media platforms should be consistent and streamlined so you can build a strong + iconic brand.
  

Twitter, InstagramPinterestFacebook, Periscope, LinkedInGoogle+.  All of these accounts should either have your name, or some variation of it, or the name of your company, as your handle.  

If for some reason your name is not available, sometimes adding a middle initial is an option.  (This is also a good way to help you figure out a company name if you don't want to use your personal name.  If all of the social media handles are taken, maybe think about a different name for your company.)

If You Don't Create the Space You Need in Your Life, the Universe Will Do It For You

When you're a coach, YOU are your business. 
 

When I was creating my business, one thing I deeply desired was to get paid to work on myself.  I wanted a career where I could read self-help books, journal, do my own personal development work, and share my insights.  

I desired a career where I was held accountable for a healthy lifestyle, where people looked to me for guidance and support.

Finding My Niche

As a Life + Marketing Coach who helps new entrepreneurs build businesses that feel authentic + aligned with their higher purpose, one thing I've noticed that holds many new coaches back is the inability to decide on a niche.  

When you're first starting out as a coach, it's important to know who you want to serve and who your ideal client is so you can gear your messaging and content towards the people that light you up.

Let's Stop Playing the Bullshit 'What If' Game

I just wrapped up my last weekend working in a restaurant, dare I say it, FOREVER.

I am feeling ALL the feels right now.  Sheer excitement.  Total passion for my business and what I'm about to create.  Sadness that I'm leaving a place that has been my home-away-from-home for the last 2.5 years, where I've made friends and created my Chosen Family.  Panic and dread of the unknown.

The Inevitable Anxiety That Comes When You Take a Leap of Faith

Three years ago I ended up in Urgent Care because I looked like this. Swollen eyes and face.  My face was on fire and itchy and I was worried about being able to breathe.  

Diagnosis: Anxiety. 

Until this happened to me, I had no idea anxiety could do this to a person.  I was getting ready to make one of the biggest decisions of my life and I was Scared.  Shitless.

The Power of Purpose: Living From Deep Within

"Each of us looks for fulfillment and authentic happiness in our own way.  

Sometimes the yearning for fulfillment becomes a call so loud and so intense at midlife that we cannot help but step off the path we are on and devote ourselves to the search for fulfillment..."
