When I first started coaching and speaking, I saw a REALLY ugly pattern.
Some would call it “bending the truth”.
I call it lying 🤥
People talking about how successful they were, or how amazing their life was... just to sell a course or some coaching.
And it was working!
Because I love connecting with peeps that are doing cool things, I’d connect... only to realize that they had no idea what they were talking about and were trying to “fake it till they make it” 😡
And all of a sudden, these people were now making money and seeing the success that they told everyone they had!
It was SOOOO bizarre.
But here’s the kicker, the ugly part:
It started to catch on to people who didn’t even have a business, to people who WANTED a business.
It looks like this:
🛑 Posting fluffy motivational posts (because they don’t have real content to give)
🛑 Never talking about specific clients or their wins (because they didn’t have clients or wins)
🛑 Creating offer after offer, posting it all over social, and hoping someone would bite (that’s not a strategy, btw)
The reason it lights a fire under my cheeks is because I FOLLOWED them and LOST... like I see a lot of people losing now.
And why do we follow?!
Because we don’t have the “results” that they do, so we listen, we learn, and we duplicate.
But I’m not gonna tolerate that anymore.
I’ve seen what it takes to have success in business for real and I will not accept seeing someone “fake it” or give info that will lead to your failure.
I love people WAY too much to let that happen.
So, that’s my rant for the day 😂
What do you think?
Can a “fake it til you make it” attitude work ethically?
Anything else that gets you worked up?
Let’s keep it classy, but drop those comments and let’s see what grinds your gears 👇😂
This is the hilltop cottage we will be converting into a high-powered Mastermind Machine for a week this March.
And it's amazing.
I mean, the place itself is wonderful, but it's amazing that in just a few short months we created a community that is filled with 3900+ of the best entrepreneurs, coaches, speakers, mentors, and experts...
Enough to host a retreat.
If you would have asked me a year ago if the 5-Figure Workweek community was going to have a retreat, I'd have said that there's no way we'd get to that point by 2018.
Now, I'm already planning the next in a MUCH larger Villa! Are you kidding me?!
This is just a testament to what you can create if you're just willing to put in some steps.
There's a specific way that I like to do business and live my life and I've been fortunate that thousands of people over the years have been interested enough to listen :)
Please, take action towards what you want. Because it wants you, too.
Are you an expert that speaks on marketing, business, mindset, or peak performance?
We want to hear from you.
Our next Utah Business Mastermind is set for February 2/3 - 2018.
2 Days of High Impact content from you, the expert. If you're ready, fill out the form below and we will reach out and connect if we feel you're the right fit.
Looking forward to connect!
Welcome to the team!
Our 5-Figure Brand Guide is here to walk you through an easy to follow form that allows us to get cracking on your Brand.
Remember, the more detailed, the better our first draft becomes, and the closer YOU get to rocking the world with your message :)
Take your time, be thorough, and dial this in, friends.
I love helping people succeed.
I also love technology. Mostly ;)
In putting the two of those things together, I've decided to take some of my presentations and create content for you, here on my blog, that emulates the processes we work through.
As I'm hanging out in the mountains of Santa Cruz on retreat, I'm creating this blog/work-along just for you... and the 25 women I'll be speaking with on 8/26.
Follow us in the work-along then send your info. From there, you'll be guided to setup your Free Discovery Call to chat about how we can take your brand from BASIC to BADASS!
Here. We. Go.
When someone says "Work Hard, Play Hard", they don't always know what that means.
Yeah, in theory, they know what it could mean... but have they lived it?
Have they hit their Rock Bottom so they know how hard it can be?
Have they been broke financially, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally?
Have they worked 80+ hours a week toward their dream or goal?
Have they failed over and over again in the pursuit of something amazing?
Do they create their lives, or are they living by default?
Here's my point:
People think it's so simple to live an entreperneurial lifestyle.
I mean, I just misspelled "entrepreneurial" and didn't have time to back and fix it!
To live this way isn't (or shouldn't be) an accident.
You should Definitely work your ass off. Share your knowledge/passion/heart/experience.
You should Definitely enjoy your life. Go travel, explore, eat fancy dinners, and post it on IG.
But it should be by Your design.
I've always wanted a simple yet robust life.
Hang out with my daughter, travel wherever sounds fun, enjoy my personal time, enjoy life with a special person by my side. Simple.
And so all those social posts about how someone just made $40k in a day? Could be true, for sure.
But that's not the FULL picture.
Here's the truth:
It's not always peaches and cream working for yourself.
All the responsibility for succeeding is up to you! No boss, no "management", no "higher-ups".
It's difficult to make $10k/mo. You still have bills, contractors, taxes, etc. You end up with maybe half of that if you're lucky.
It's difficult to make $25k/mo. Same payables, more lifestyle cost and maybe you walk away with $8-10k/month.
You want to make 7 figures? Are you INSANE?!
Now we're talking bookkeepers, tax person, a small team, marketing strategies upon marketing strategies, product launches, course launches, social media teams... um, and don't forget to DO THE WORK YOU WERE PAID FOR! :)
Oh, and you want it all automated?! Then you're getting a kickass manager to run it all for you at an appropriate salary/commission.
It's work, people. It really is.
That's the truth.
It's much more difficult than any 9-5 I'm aware of, but it really is rewarding.
The truth is that some of you reading this are Totally up for the challenge.
Some of you are already living this life.
And some of you need help before you hit that wall.
If you need some insights, mentorship, or if you need assistance creating the systems that set you up for success, then please reach out.
I know how this goes. And after 13 years, I've seen it all. Trust me :)
I'm here if you need me.
Hey, ya'll! Here you'll find the slides for my "Double Funnel Methodology" keynote.
