When I met Melissa nearly 4 years ago in New York City, she was just starting her business after leaving her engineering career. We've kept in touch over the years as our businesses have morphed and changed. Never did I realize she would tell me she's now a voiceover artist.
I'm fascinated with her journey through career, marriage, and motherhood. I'm sure you will be, too.
Okay, we're recording. Hey Melissa, how are you? I'm doing well, Sally. How are you? Oh, awesome. Now do you go by Melissa del Toro Schaffner or do you do Melissa del Toro or what? What's the, what's the deal these days? Okay, so, well, I started my business when I was dating my husband. So, or actually, let's see, we were just newly married, so you know, kind of like in that, in that part, like do I want to join my business to my relationship and use my married name or I want to just be my own brand. Like I have been for 30 some odd years, so I just chose to leave the...
Let's call her Deanna.
Deanna came to an agency I used to work for to launch her business coaching program.
She had great photos,
.....an amazing case study,
.............had just bought some funnel software,
and was raring to go!
It was time to truly live that laptop lifestyle and launch her $2,000 program to the masses!
Nevermind that she hadn't installed her Facebook pixel yet, didn't have it on her website either.
But she had over 5000 likes on her Facebook business page!
......with people from Bangladesh making up the majority
.............and she had only 100 people on her email list.
Can you say red flags?
I raised my concerns to her and to the agency after my assessment of her digital credibility.
First of all, she wasn't having it. She knew what she was doing. She'd already run some of her own ads before (that "like" campaign to gain thousands of fans from Bangladesh that ruined her pixel data was the one ad she had run before). It wasn't so...
I was like, "What? Another redhead in this online space?" And that's all she wrote. We met in person at Social Media Marketing World two years in a row, then we finally got together online for a formal chat about Facebook ads.
Ya know when it gets super confusing and daunting and you feel like you can't learn this stuff. Yeah, I've been there too and sometimes I still feel that way. So today we get to chat it up with Sally and learn all about Facebook advertising.

What to know what's important to know when trying Facebook ads? ---- Yup that's right we're going to take Look At Facebook Advertising and we have a Special Guest (more on that in a minute...).

Jennie popped up in my membership one day just out of the blue. She was a referral from an existing client (Thanks, Tamsen!) who had been singing my praises about the way I teach Facebook ads. It took a little while before we personally connected, but I am so glad we did!
What I noticed about Jennie is that she has this incredible personality, presence, and articulation that draws people in. Talk about a video star! I've been digging into her life lessons over on YouTube to see what content to bring to my audience, and I think we've found just the piece for you.
Take it away, Coach Jennie, my favorite Inner Critic Expert.

When I first met David Jacobson, he came to me through a referral. (Thanks, Tamsen ) He had two amazing sites on Kajabi. One he was using to coach other financial coaches to have successful businesses, called Coach-Connections. The other is a perk for his CC members to be a client-facing network of financial coaches that clients can choose from to help with their unique situations. This is called Accountable.
This is niche coaching at its best! Everyone can offer financial coaching, but only the coaches with specific life experiences can identify with the clients of the same vein. It's a beautiful mixture of holding each other accountable.
Dave's had his coaching membership for over 10 years, but it wasn't until he started using Kajabi that he was able to see his ultimate visions come to life.
Hi, my name is Dave Jacobson. Megan...
According to Facebook, our online friendship began in February of 2016. I can't exactly remember what prompted our connection, but Bec Robbie, a native Australian, was living in Thailand at the time running an e-commerce business with her husband, and I was getting ready to launch my digital marketing academy for service-based entrepreneurs. I was very curious about her life.
We were in different areas of online business, so working together wasn't really in the cards at the time, but I was fascinated that she was living abroad completely independent of having a regular job where you go to an office every day.
I was still working as an actuary (fancy word for insurance statistician), but I was banking on my May 2016 launch to be the catalyst for leaving my 25 year career (and that's exactly what happened).
Fast forward to 2019. Bec has since divulged of her e-commerce venture and is now teaching online business owners to...
One thing that the Reality TV generation has influenced is how people communicate with each other. Abbreviated slang, such as LOL, ROFL, or TBH began with teenagers sending text messages to each other as their main form of communication. Long gone are the days of push button phones with long, spirally cords stretched behind closed doors for private phone conversations.
And with the birth of emoji keyboards, many baby boomers are left in the dark trying to figure out which smiley face or hand gesture is appropriate for the conversation at hand.
Even the legal world is having to figure out what emojis mean for interpretation of the law.
According to Wikipedia, "emojis are ideograms and smileys...including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of...
I’m not even sure how it happened, but I think Christie reached out to me via Facebook Messenger after seeing one of my posts or comments in the Kajabi support group.
Whatever I said must have resonated with her because she was ready to buy my program at hello!

For those of you who don’t know me, I used to be a Zumba instructor, a very zealous one at that! Oh I know what you might be thinking, what in the world does Zumba have to do with starting a business? But now that I’ve...
According to her official bio, "Lanette Pottle is an award-winning life & business strategist who helps women solopreneurs increase their impact and grow their bottom line without losing their minds."
And I wholeheartedly agree with that description of Lanette and how she does life and business.
Funny thing? My family is vacationing in Maine this week, where Lanette lives, and we happen to be meeting for the first time in person and having brunch together on the same day that this blog post gets published and emailed to my subscribers. Watch for a photo that I'll surely post on Instagram.
So without further ado, let's explore these 7 truths.
