How often should you email your audience?

September 17th, 2014

My clients regularly freak out over not knowing how often to email their audience.

They worry they’ll be too pushy …

Overwhelm or annoy people …

Have their readers think they are being ‘salesy’ …

Or just that they don’t really have anything awesome to say anyway!

Do you ever feel this way?

To be honest I have to laugh when people ask ME if it’s a bad thing for them to email often … I’m kinda the queen of emailing a LOT. In case you hadn’t noticed

So here’s my answer: How Often You SHOULD Email People? As often as you have something worthwhile to say!

Now here’s the thing, SOME people will not agree with you that what you’re saying is worthwhile! I get unsubscribes with nearly EVERY email.

This is roughly how I feel about that:

Long story short? I’ll keep on being busy doing MY biz my way, and if it doesn’t gel with some people? That’s totally cool. I didn’t get into this game to make everyone LIKE me, I got into it to make an IMPACT on the right people. The right people for ME. This means – people who get me.

People who not only like me, but LOVE me.

People who WANT to hear from me.

People who actually get disappointed when there’s NOT an email from me!

Plus, I have a lot to say

But how does it fit in with you building your business and making MONEY?

Well I hope that when you email people it impacts your business positively! Your words are far and away your GREATEST business asset … if you use them wisely, that is!

STOP Freaking Waiting for Inspiration and NOW! A 72-Hour Plan to Bring in the Bucks!

September 16th, 2014

Fact: if you really wanted to, you could start making money – serious money – in your business within the next 72 hours. That’s GENEROUS, I really wanted to put 24 hours. No, it wouldn’t be EASY and yes you would have to hustle your ass off and step WAY outside your comfort zone, but seriously -

Is it that comfy in there anyway?

Pretty much every entrepreneur I’ve ever known (including myself) could have been making BIG money and changing a lot of people’s lives literally YEARS before they actually started doing so, and the only thing that stopped them? Was them.

So let’s cut to the crunch: there is no ‘rule’ that says you need to go through a certain process or system in order to actually bring your business to life. You sure as heck don’t have to wait a requisite amount of TIME, and there’s nothing you need to have in terms of tools and systems that you can’t set up TODAY.

I totally get that it takes time to really figure out what you want to do, who for, and how it’s all going to play out in a way that is ALIGNED, but honestly? Figuring all that shit out shouldn’t mean you’re starving financially in the meantime.

Also, the figuring out process never ends so there is nothing to WAIT to be ready for. You want to make money online, have a business?

You start NOW.

You have something useful to share, you can help people? Get over yourself and your ‘OMG what ifs!’ and start NOW.

The only thing stopping you from ALREADY making money in your business in the way you WANT to is that you’re not out there claiming it and offering value to help people GET it!

Just so you …


Stop Living in Fear – THIS is How to Make the Money You Want.

September 15th, 2014

Be honest now – is the way you’re running your business (and therefore your life) exactly how it would be if you had no fear and KNEW you couldn’t fail? Or are you settling just a little … maybe a lot?

It’s impossible to fully avoid, isn’t it? Or at least it feels that way at times. I’m talking about you. Making choices for your business and life. Based on what you think you SHOULD do or NEED to do, rather than on what you’d really LOVE to do or (perhaps more tellingly) what you really freaking do NOT want to do.

I’m talking, quite simply, about fear.

About fear telling you that you should put together that not-quite-right program because hey! You need to do something NOW and hey! This is what people seem to want, so hey! You gotta make money, right?

About fear telling you that you can’t do THAT, not that WAY, because you’re not ready, not good enough, not BIG enough.

About fear telling you to take the client you don’t really want …

To do the hours you really resent …

To say no once more to the time spent with your kids or on your creative work …

To accept it when people try to negotiate with you on price …

To ‘give in’ on the times you’re available, the way you’re available …

To tell yourself that this is how it has to be for now … that you can’t say THAT … it would be too harsh! Or mean! Or you’d lose clients!

The crazy thing about all of this is that if you are a woman who believes in even the POSSIBILITY that you can create a business and a life on your terms, and who is in ANY way …


10 Things to Never Give Up If You Want to Make It as an Entrepreneur

September 11th, 2014

 

 

1. Your true message. What is the real thing you need to share with the world, the true message within you that you (and you alone) are called to deliver? Whatever you do KEEP SHARING YOUR REAL MESSAGE.

So often i see entrepreneurs trying to build a brand, a name, make money, by essentially just robo-copying what everyone else in their industry is already doing. Whether by accident or design, this is a terrible idea, and one thing is for certain – the world has enough zombies trying to take money from it.

You want to create WEALTH, and truly “make it”?

Start by being you.

Your best you.

And sharing that with the world.

 

2. Your rituals. There were things you used to take time for, often, before you got into this game.

At some point, perhaps when just starting out, it occurred to you – “if I had a successful online business I could do this EVERYDAY! Imagine!”, and you envisaged yourself sitting down for a few hours of inspired creation each day and filling the rest of your time with yoga, gym, coffee by the beach or in the sun, long bouts, lazy dinners, plenty of journaling, plenty of time to just BE.

Meanwhile, here in the NOW, your every thought and move is governed by fear and the idea of What Still Needs Doing In Your Business.

Your health and fitness is NOTHING like what it was, you’re stressed and exhausted and you judge your self worth almost entirely by how much time you spent working.

Can I just say? This is not a smart way to succeed. Even if you make big MONEY this way (which you won’t, as there’s no freaking way you’re operating in your zone of genius when you’re trying …


Want Your Millions, Want ‘em Now? Be a Diva, and Expect The Best.

September 4th, 2014

 

I freaking HATE it when people come and talk to me when I’m writing or engrossed in my work. I’ve mentioned this before but God knows it bears saying again. I mean come ON – are they actually stupid? I think it’s pretty clear when somebody has their head down and is focused and anybody with even 1 single lone creative cell in their body knows NOT TO INTERRUPT THE ARTIST AT WORK.

ESPECIALLY not to ask something as mundane and IRRELEVANT as how you are or whether you got their message/email/annoying distraction to everything you actually care about and want to spend your time on.

Yeah. I’m a selfish bitch, I know. I want it all, I want it now, and I want it EXACTLY HOW I ASKED FOR IT.

NO interruptions.

NO small talk.

NO pesky tasks.

In fact, you know what? Let’s make it simple for both of us, just don’t come anywhere within a 50 foot radius of me when I’m working, thinking about work, journaling, brainstorming or otherwise in flow in my creative state.

Sigh.

Do you ever wonder if maybe you’d be happier and better off living on a remote island cut off from everybody? Or at least getting helicoptered in there once a day for a nice block of 4 or 20 hours

Here’s the thing about being a total diva, bitch, whatever you want to call it -

The world will never understand you and you WILL come across as arrogant, demanding, spoiled, a princess, head in the clouds, ungrateful, uncaring, and a whole host of other things not generally spoken of in polite company.

And BECAUSE of this – no, not in spite of it but BECAUSE of it – you will make your millions, become the leader you were …
