I am pretty dang sick of the prosperity conversations that I see in communities across the book of faces. The idea gets floated around that we can just ‘have anything we desire’. The idea that simply by ‘attracting’ things we can make money. There is some ‘sure’ to that, but also…You have to understand the […]
In the world of online business, there are any number of courses one can take teaching you various ‘strategies’ for success. “Learn my 10 strategies for 6 figure success” “Learn my 3 step formula for 7 Figure Months” “Learn my unique 15 step funnel formula for wild success” Ad nauseam. The problem with all […]
Typically speaking, I’m not one to laud the eccentricities of famous folk. I’m more apt to laud the opinions and perceptions of that of the common human. The ones who have very real bills to pay, and fears about where the next dollar will come from. (I find this to be especially important when discussing […]
DON’T BE A SALES BULLY You don’t need to bully people into buying from you. Your job isn’t to convince them they need you. They may or may not need you. And you have zero place as a coach or service provider to make that decision for them. They need to make that decision themselves. […]
For the past six months or so, I have started to notice a pattern. Anytime I post a slightly viral-ish post in a facebook group, I get between 10 and 30 requests to ‘have a conversation’, ‘pick my brain’, ‘ask me about my journey’, ‘get insights into how I did it’. This equates to as […]
From September to December of this year I coached 104 women. For free. (This is not an advisable practice for the record, and I’ll likely never do it again. No matter how much fun I had…But that is a different post.). The ties that bind these 104 women, or at the very least 50% of […]
For the past few weeks, the social fringes of the coaching world have started fraying among a small group of critically engaged, actively frustrated folks. People with certifications, degrees, and abilities out the wazoo. Engaged and enraged by the HEAPING TON of bullshit circulating the world of the interwebs, these smart coaches and professionals have […]
If you’re new around these parts, you probably don’t know that I have a tendency to balk at conventional online business practices. And that I find most online marketing (no matter how effective) to be a form of sleaseball tango. As such, I write a lot about slaying the conventional wisdom. So if you’re new, […]
When I started this business a year ago, I called myself a ‘solopreneur’. In fact, I called myself that until just a few hours ago (as of writing this blog post). I found the word enticing, the idea that I was the sole business owner, and that I was ‘in it’ on my own. No more pesky people to manage, no more bosses that micromanaged my time and impeded on my genius. I was a free to roam ‘solopreneuer’–free to manage my time, travel, and have freedom. Nothing could stop me now.
