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!
This gal takes action!

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.

I wanted to share something really exciting! I am always in the hunt for and always on the move and looking for tools to help people help themselves
People come to me with all sorts of different things in relation to...
Gurus out there are always talking about spending massive amounts of money to cold traffic to get people into webinars or on your list to download some piddly one page resource that creates a win.
Yes, I’ve touted the same strategies before, but I’ve changed my mind, as a woman has the right to do, and I’m calling bullshit on the same ole techniques and strategies of the 20-teens.
I've seen the evidence and know this overnight success is a unicorn.
It’s time to grow up and act like real businesses who don’t push get-rich-quick digital schemes, webinars that bring in loads of traffic and buyers (they’re dying, by the way), and slick upsell/downsell funnels with timers running out to get the best deal before it’s gone.
No. You don’t need all that.
It’s time to get back to basics and act like real businesses with real...
As spring is coming to an end, those of us who have been busy working hard in our businesses and shuffling kids around to get through the final days of school may not have had the time to do the proverbial spring cleaning that we all need to do.
In 2017, I wrote a blog post about spring cleaning your closets and your personal finances. The closet situation was more about my daughters, so when I dumped their entire closets out on the floor in their room to sort through and put back on the most needed items, we had quite the mess to muddle through.
Now that's a lot of clothes and shoes!
I traveled farther than anyone else to attend Elevate Live, a live event put on by women for women (there was one man) in the coaching space. Nearly everyone was British, so this Tennessee girl's accent stuck out like a sore thumb.
Gemma Went, the woman behind this event, is a leading UK business and mindset coach. This was her first attempt, and she knocked it out of the park.
My purpose in going to Sutton Coldfield, a tiny town outside Birmingham, England, was to meet with like-minded women in business who I could learn from and hopefully they could learn from me as well. It didn't hurt that the New Hall Hotel & Spa was an amazing setting for such an event.
With about 60 women in attendance, I was able to meet over a dozen of them and have deeper discussions with 4 or 5 of them. Sure, I could have tried to target these ladies in groups or online somehow with my content, but there's nothing like meeting in person...
To succeed in this world takes maximizing your potential. A life coach is professionally trained to help you reach your goals no matter what area of focus you need help in. The four (4) main areas to niche within are relationships, health, leisure, and career.
Covering all the bases at once is like trying to butter everyone’s toast. There’s simply not enough of you to go around to help everyone at the same time. Marketing is also much simpler when you focus on one area of life and go deep into that particular topic.
Choosing a niche is one of the most challenging parts of starting an online coaching business. If you are just starting out and you’re looking for a profitable niche, this list will give you some of the most profitable evergreen niches. Each of these niches is popular, and they will stay that way. In the social media marketing world, competition is good, because it allows you to piggyback on the success of larger sites and communities.
Anything that is repetitive in your business can be outsourced. The same goes for information. Anything you teach or require from your clients can be documented in a step-by-step format that helps your clients progress, saves you and your clients time and money, and with the right marketing could bring you a healthy passive income stream.
If you find yourself repeating things as a coach that you consider pre-requisite knowledge before you can help your clients achieve their goals, creating a course would give them the foundation they need to be able to work with you.
A course is a direction or route to be taken to achieve an outcome. It can be...
Nearly every client that comes to me wants to do a webinar where they'll pitch an offer at the end.
Nearly every client is disappointed in results....Not the results of how many signed up (we get tons of sign ups), but the results of how many showed up and purchased their offer.
Ultimately, we end up taking a different path to test the market, which is usually what I recommend up front.
But people are stubborn! They think just because Amy Porterfield has a gazillion people buy her program with her webinar formula, that theirs will bring the same results.
The difference between you and Amy Porterfield? People already know who Amy is. They don't know who you are....yet!
It used to take 7 to 12 touches before someone would do business with you. For digital marketing, it's more like 12 to 24 touches. That doesn't mean you bombard them with the same ads over and over again. You've got to shake it up and produce consistent, valuable...
