I'll be transparent right from the start! I am AWFUL at building a business!
Yep! There you have it! And I'm not being easy with my wording...I said AWFUL and I mean absolutely AWFUL.
I'm not too fond of routine (I love spontaneity)
I don't follow "trends and fads" (I've always trailed my own path)
And I LOVE being there for everyone (something that has caused me to lose THOUSANDS of dollars and friends)
I don't like having to focus on "one thing" (Shucks! I'm a multi-passionate - so go figure)
So, in complete transparency - I will tell you that I struggled in business for nearly 5 years, before I realized that I was never going to build anything profitable if I tried doing it the way everyone did.
First of all, I'm a Jesus Girl - so I thought a lot differently than those in the "business support groups", I was a part of.
The latest business "trend". Most recent "social media" tool. And all the conflicting marketing 'strategies" -...
I work hard to make sure I "practice what I preach"!
Not just because it would be hypocritical NOT to, but because I want my own students and business buddies to see that DOING THE WORK...works!
Results are proof! Results are receipts! And just last week, all the things I teach others - came into play in my own, product based business.
When I received the phone call, from a representative of a VERY, REPUTABLE ORGANIZATION - of course, I thought the call was about a "personal order".
"Yes! This is Joy, how can I help you?" - I asked
"Hi, Joy! You don't know me, but I've heard lots about you and your amazing brand." (insert my deer in headlights stare and a big, cheesy grin)
*now let's pause for a moment* TAKE NOTE: The caller admitted that I didn't know her (SHE WAS A STRANGER)
But how did she hear about me and my "brand"? *I'm gonna share the details, soon*
I even questioned if I was referred by someone or if we had a mutual "friend"....
Use A 3-Part Sales Funnel To Make More Money- More Often!
Every business should have a sales funnel! Yep! Every.Single.One!
Whether you sell products or services, or even a bit of both! Sales Funnels help you to guide your target audience on a journey that leads them from followers to fans to paying customers or clients.
Your sales funnel is a visual representation of how to attract people into your business and convert them into paying customers. The term ‘funnel’ is a huge buzz word lately, so it seems that lots of business owners aren't too eager to create a funnel or they simply believe that it's something over their heads or too advanced, for where they are on their own business journey!
Most commonly, many business owners simply get overwhelmed at the idea of having to have multiple offers for...
I see it all.the.time. People setting goals...and never achieving them! Not necessarily because they can't achieve them, but because something gets in the way! Something hinders them or discourages them or worse - they just don't do the "right" kind of work to stay disciplined and focused in order to reach their desired goals!
We've all been there! Setting out with the highest of hopes, only to allow them to fizzle in a few weeks...and then having to generate the energy and excitement to start again building the momentum we need!
This doesn't only happen in business! It happens with our relationships, faith, careers, health, finances...you name it! Losing the zeal to reach our goals, happens all throughout life!
Goals, of any kind, are healthy! They set up a standard and a plan to get us to a desired destination or result! But here's the thing: Goals must be ACTIVATED! They can't just stay on paper or in our minds! It...
Let me start by saying...It's not enough just to throw up a quick website, create a thousand different social media accounts and say you're in business!
It takes work to manage, engage and create the RIGHT content for your audience.
I know I don't always follow the steps that the billion dollar "gurus" tell you to follow or the high end business coaches.
Because, honestly? No! Seriously...do you want my raw and uncut answer?
Here it is: A lot of those "systems", "methods" and "programs" - never worked for me.
I literally had to learn from God! And I'm not being super deep here, I promise you I'm not...but it's true!
I spent THOUSANDS of dollars - FOLLOWING, STUDYING and PRACTICING from "the best" coaches in the industry.
Some things worked....most didn't.
Does that mean they were frauds! Not really...I took what worked, but also listened to my own insight to grow my business.
So, when it comes to creating...
