2348

My colleague Lindsay Dotzlaf and I are bringing you a joint podcast this week all about a concept we’ve coined called method constraint.

1207

Are your thoughts about your audience costing you in your marketing?

BONUS: How to elevate your coaching by understanding your clients’ context
400

As coaches, we know that our thoughts create our results, right? But in order to coach our clients effectively on their thoughts, we have to understand the CONTEXT from which these thoughts emerged. Someone whose cultural history involves persecution and multigenerational trauma may not resonate with the coaching that “everything will happen as it’s meant to,” just as someone who has learned explicitly and implicitly that their sexuality is wrong or bad won’t respond to coaching that does not take this history into account.

In this episode, you will learn how approaching your clients with radical curiosity and learning to spot how their thoughts have been shaped by their cultural context will enable you to coach clients with lived experiences that differ from your own. In this special episode, guest coaches Rachel Hart and Dr. Sonia Wright join Kara and I for a conversation about why understanding your clients’ context is so important, and how committing to curiosity and nonjudgment will help you navigate your own blind spots as a coach.

Does the idea of getting a refund request send you into a spiral of worry and anxiety?

BONUS: Coaching tools aren’t one-size-fits-all (and that’s a great thing)
317

Many coaches believe that once they become certified, they will be equipped with the tools to coach anyone on anything. It’s a lovely thought, but maybe not so helpful when you’re in your tenth session with a client who just stares at you blankly as you try to explain, for the 50th time, how their thoughts are creating their results and why that’s a great thing. While there are certainly powerful frameworks out there, the coaching principles we learn aren’t one-size-fits-all.

One single tool or framework isn’t going to work for everybody, and that’s ok. In this episode, Kara and I discuss how to bring more openness, nuance, and discernment into your coaching, so you can coach clients of different backgrounds and lived experiences effectively.

BONUS: How realizing ‘it’s all made up’ will make you a better coach
578

Coaching tools didn’t descend from the heavens. They were developed by humans whose social context impacted the way they saw the world and their clients, including what they even viewed as a “problem” to be solved in the first place. In other words, those coaching modalities that you know and love? Yeah, those were made up. 

Before you abandon all meaning and run off into the woods, tune into this episode to learn why understanding this is exactly what will elevate your coaching.

In this episode, Kara and I teach you how you can avoid whitewashing your coaching by understanding your historical context, the context of your clients, and the context of the coaching industry as a whole. Listen in to learn why broadening your historical literacy is so vital to creating a coaching business that meets the demands of a multicultural world.

152. The wrong way to overdeliver
1863

There’s one topic in the coaching world that is rife with misunderstanding, and so it’s time to set the record straight.

Overdelivering is something all of us are encouraged to do in our businesses, to provide value to our people to help them get amazing results. But it doesn’t take the form that you might think it does.

This week, I offer you the 3 pillars of genuine over-delivery. Practicing and implementing these 3 pillars is what will have your clients creating amazing results, telling all their friends about you, and in turn, help you develop a reputation where people want to sign with you over and over again.

"I think when we are thinking that having a lot of money is bad, we are keeping ourselves in a place of I am only going to make as much as I need. That keeps you in a state of constant survival mode" ~ Coco Madari

Many people share the belief that the system of capitalism and making lots of money is at odds with doing good in the world and generally being a good person.

Coco has spent a lot of time intentionally thinking about the negative associations we tie to wanting to make more money, and we’re highlighting why this is a thought error, and how you can show up in abundance and authenticity instead.

Trying to take that next level up can feel fake like we’re pretending to be someone we’re not.

But 6 Months to Fully Booked Masterminder — and now a fully booked coach! — Jacqueline’s take on incremental steps to becoming the next version of yourself is going to change your life.

3087

"You don’t get that just placed in your hand. You have to earn it because it’s worth a lot. And so what that earning involves is continuing to fall down and get up. Fall down and get up, and fall down and get up." - Karen Hawkwood

The path of mastery is all about feeling our way a bit at a time into what makes us uniquely us.

Especially within the realm of business and marketing, we want to invite people to experience the essence of who we are. But we’re often doing the opposite - taming our own nature.

This week, Karen walks us through her insights on what mastery means, and why it’s crucial to feel into your you-ness and find the bravery to edge towards it.

Can you be coaching people on their heartbreak... while going through your own heartbreak?
Yes, you can. And it doesn't mean you have to put up a fake façade.

The simple truth that I wish I knew earlier: the client that we ARE is the client we GET.

Coaches who invest big in their own coaching, are ALL IN, and take 100% responsibility for creating amazing results for themselves... sign clients who do the exact same.

Coaches who are reluctant to invest big, second-guess the coaching they get, and don't fully show up for their desired results... find themselves surrounded by other wishy-washy people who hover around them without ever committing to a YES.

If you're human, it's inevitable that very  painful things will happen that feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you.

Not even life coaches with the best mind management skills can avoid being thrown into the rawest and most vulnerable aspects of the human experience once in a while.... because it's simply part of living life on Planet Earth. 

So, how are you supposed to show up and market your life coaching business in these times?

In this episode, I answer this exact question. 

My hope is that this episode equips you with the wisdom and courage to make the most loving decisions towards yourself -- which will always ALSO be the best decisions for your business.

88. How to overdeliver
1276

Overdelivering is one of my core business values.

Overdelivering just means giving the client WAY more than you receive, going above and beyond, impressing them beyond their expectations.

When you overdeliver consistently, you will never be short on clients because everyone wants to receive more than they give.

And there is a common misunderstanding about what it means to overdeliver and how to do it.

In this episode, I break down that misconception, and share THREE factors that consistently allow me to create an overdelivering experience for my clients.

2412

You've never had anxiety explained like THIS before.

Vikki Louise is a life coach, anxiety expert, and host of the podcast F*ck Anxiety and Get Sh*t Done. She's my go-to resource when it comes to hacking your brain.

Anxiety actually plays a huge part in preventing life coaches from marketing effectively. Even if you are a coach with rockstar skills, if you clam up every time you talk about your offer, you won't be able to reach many people!

So I invited Vikki on the show so that we can all understand and manage our own brains better, so that more people can get the help they need from life coaches.

We talk about:

  • How exactly anxiety can be your superpower
  • The BEST metaphor for dealing with anxiety that I’ve ever heard 
  • Why you should expect anxiety, and create more of it on purpose in marketing… 
  • … and how to get massive growth from it
  • How to respond like a pro when your anxiety flares up in public 

... and so much more!

If you have a human brain, this is truly a must-listen episode.

85. How to create a "fully booked" mindset
1385

I run an exclusive business training program for life coaches called the 6 Months to Fully Booked Mastermind.

With my mastermind students, the very first thing we work on is how to step into who they want to become NOW -- in other words, how to be in "fully booked coach" energy right away.

We do that before planning or strategizing on anything, because upgrading your own energy is the fastest way to get different results.

When you are in that energy, you carry yourself differently. You end up writing stronger copy, making more confident offers, and attracting more ideal clients who clearly see the value of your offer.

In this episode, I share the 3 most important cornerstones of the "fully booked" mindset, and share tips for how you, too, can get started creating it.

3035

This episode is a must-listen if you are a creative spirit AND a coach.

Katy Arrington is an artist and a life coach for artists, and one of my most remarkable clients. 

In my mastermind, she created well over $14K in 4 weeks, from both her original art and coaching.  It might seem like an instant success story, but behind those numbers, I know that there was so much hard work, unwavering commitment and willingness to grow through failure.

I asked her on the show so that I could take my listeners behind the scenes on her journey. 

In this conversation, we talk about: 

  • How to find your voice as an artist AND a coach (hint: it's the same process)
  •  The ONE emotion that made Katy so much money
  • Why “worst case scenario” work can change everything
  • How to create marketing excellence even when you have little experience 
  • How to build resilience AND enjoyment in the process of growth

... and so much more.

1952

I've had a textbook ADHD diagnosis since I was a little girl.

For a long time, I thought it was something 'wrong' with me. I thought I had to 'overcome' my ADHD in order to be successful in business, and felt a lot of shame about the way my brain works.

Because I know that this is a common experience for so many gifted coaches with ADHD, I want to take this episode to talk about how it's possible to thrive with, not in spite of, ADHD.

I truly believe that I could not have the business that I do today without ADHD.

Yours, too, can be your superpower, co-creative partner, and source of your ingenuity. Listen to this episode for my ideas on how.

82. How to market when you have trauma with Karen C.L. Anderson
2675

"Your trauma is not your fault, but the healing is your responsibility." - Karen C.L. Anderson

If you ever felt confused, frozen or even dissociated in showing up to market and sell, this episode is a must-listen.

I see this over and over: the impact of trauma often keeps great coaches from fully sharing their gifts with the world.

Many live with the effect of big, obvious trauma. And so many more of us are impacted by more subtle traumas. They all "count", and they all deserve caring consideration in order to heal.

I wanted to have a conversation with my colleague, author and master coach Karen C.L. Anderson, about how to recognize when this is happening, and what to do about it.

Karen brings such a wise and compassionate perspective to help you understand what's going on in your nervous system. 

We discuss:

  • A new definition of trauma that will help to dissolve feelings of shame
  • How sometimes, it's not always thoughts, but your nervous system that creates feelings
  • What’s really happening when you show up to market and “freeze”
  • How being on social media can feel like an assault, and what to do about it
  • What to do when you dissociate mid-coaching, or mid-"showing up"
  • How to create more ‘mature’ nervous systems

Listen.

406

Note: This episode is a continuation of this previous episode, Big sell vs. Small sell. Listen to that first.

If you want people to say yes to your offer, you have to help them feel safe. That's the magic of the small sell -- creating safety in the "yes".

And I've been running a "small sell challenge" in my Facebook group, which has been getting people amazing results.

But the truth is that the magic isn't in my community, or my challenge, created by me.

You can, and should, create your own small sell challenge at all times... so you can create clients at all times.

In this episode, I teach you how to THINK so that you are constantly inspiring your people to say yes to themselves, and to your offer.

2634

If you dream of leaving your day job to work on your coaching business full time, this episode is for you.
Two of my clients, Jennie and Lisa, recently quit their high-powered, well-paying jobs.
Before they did so, they had understandable fears around making such a big life change, and worried about whether they'd be able to replace their salary.
But these coaches are both such amazing examples of what is possible when you make a powerful decision. Almost immediately upon quitting, they created huge successes in their businesses, and they are now happier than ever.

And I want you to listen in on their brains.
We talk about:

  • How to decide when you’re ready to quit
  • The coaching question that changed Lisa's fear around leaving her job... and how she ended up exceeding her yearly goal in just months
  • How Jennie “sold” her husband on her vision around quitting her job... immediately had a 5-figure month
  • What to do with the 'worst case scenario' so you can be unstoppable

... and so much more.

In this episode, I got together 8 of the coaches who achieved the goal and asked them to share their know-how.

  • The formula for feeling in control of your results
  • How to believe without evidence
  • How to sign clients when you don't have time
  • When taking more action doesn't create clients, and what really does
  • How to create extraordinary value for your people so hiring you becomes a no-brainer 

This episode is chock full of actionable, client-creating insights. 

You'll walk away massively inspired, and confident that you, too, can learn to create 4 clients in 30 days... and do it again, and again.

Listen.

74. Obedience, complicity, and life coaching with Kathryn Morrison
3204

This is the honest conversation I've been waiting to have with another ally.

My colleague Kathryn Morrison came on my show before to talk about busting out of 'employee mindset' and stepping into CEO mode when it comes to building a 6-figure coaching business.

Now, she's back. And we're talking about how to step into CEO mode in a different way. 

What does it take to break out of complicity and take leadership when it comes to changing oppressive systems?


We talk about:

  • Breaking out of the illusion of "I'm doing enough"
  • How we are conditioned to be obedient to structures of power
  • The difference between soul shame vs. ego shame 
  • How to redirect thoughts that create complicity in our own brains
  • How the life coaching industry can be a voice of moral authority

... and so much more.

This episode is full of big ideas and big questions... and it's only the beginning of what I hope will be lifelong journeys toward conscious inquiry and moral leadership for all of us in the life coaching industry.

72. Black Coaches talk Anti-Racist Leadership
3027

“Black Lives Matter is not a trend in the African-American community… you don’t get to take a break from being black.” - Ruth Duren

“Use your voice. Know that people who aren’t here for your message will fall away, and that’s a good thing.” - Brandy Morris

“Pain is the birthplace of epic change.” - Courtney Adams

“I’m up for the fight. And I want to dance my way through it.” - April Baskin

April, Ruth, Brandy, and Courtney talk about:

  • Moving through emotional trauma to get to clarity and truth
  • Separating individual “blame” vs. systemic responsibility
  • Self-correcting as a leader
  • The tension between being compassionate and un-apologetic 
  • The future of Black Lives Matter
  • Plugging into joy and hope in the midst of it all

This conversation will not only change the way you think about social justice, it will change the way you think about coaching and human transformation.

1869

The world is reeling from the injustice of George Floyd’s murder, and there are a lot of charged emotions in the air. 

Whatever race you are, and wherever you are on the political spectrum, how you speak on social media matters.

69. How I made $210K in 9 days
2525

I recently finished the launch for my next mastermind group, and created $210,000 cash in just 9 days.

For context, it took me the entire last year to create $200,000.... so i learned a thing or two about how to massively fast-track results! 

I want to take you behind the scenes, tell you some stories about exactly how I pulled it off.

I also want to tell you THREE most important principles that I lived by that created this massive result, which you can also start implementing in your business today.

I want to inspire you to believe that your own multiple six-figure launch is completely possible, and start proactively setting the stage for that to happen.

It's completely realistic for you, and I'll teach you how to start working toward it today.

68. How to Become a High-End Coach with Natalie Fisher
2788

Natalie Fisher, my client, is a career mindset coach.

She now easily and consistently generates new consults and signs ideal clients. But that wasn't always the case, even though she's always been an amazing coach, passionate, and hard-working... and had a huge list for a long time.

In our work together, she learned how think and market like a high-end coach... and all the results she wanted followed from that. 

Like 40K revenue in 6 months while actually doing LESS work.

In this podcast, I interview her and we spill the beans on:

  • Why selling lower-priced products isn’t easier
  • Low-end coach thinking vs. high-end coach thinking
  • How a low-end coach writes sales pages vs. high-end coach
  • How to handle when a client says "I'm good today, I don't know if I need coaching"
  • How Natalie changed her thoughts about the pandemic, upgraded her offer and started creating better results for herself and clients
  • An exact example of the kind of email that create 6 consults

If you want to get off the hamster wheel of doing a lot of work for low-end services with small price tags, and start positioning yourself as a high-end coach from integrity, this is a must-listen.

66. How to get out of a marketing rut
1178

Many of you listened to the episode titled  “How to Evaluate When You’re Getting Crickets," and asked for more ideas on what to try differently in your marketing.

Well, here they are! 

If you think you’re working hard and are sick of doing the same things with little results, let’s get you out of that marketing rut.

There are so many things you can play with, tweak, and experiment with. 

In this episode, I discuss:

  • How to write calls-to-action that are easier to say “yes” to
  • How to tell different kinds of stories
  • How to try different voices, and still be coherent
  • How to push yourself out of the comfort zone

After you listen to this, "marketing rut" will be history!

65. How to create life-changing results in a short time
1081

Many coaches believe that change takes a long time.

They assume that profound, long-lasting results must take months, if not years.

In this episode, I will share with you a different way of thinking about the relationship between time and results.

And I will help you build the confidence that you, too, can create life-changing results in a short time. That will change the way you show up for your current clients and market to future clients.

64. How to feel totally certain
617

As a life coach, how do you know anyone will want to work with you? How do you know your niche will work? Or if you'll be able to hit your first 5-figure month?

Most people know that doubting is not useful. They also know that certainty is magnetic and compelling, and hence more likely to create the exact result you want. 

At the same time, it can be really hard to wrap our logical brains around believing and feeling certainty about something that isn't 'proven'.

In this episode, I share a concept that will help you you think about "certainty in advance" in a new way. 

No crystal ball necessary.

Take a listen.

63. Big Sell vs. Small Sell
1531

If you're not getting ideal clients responding to your offers, it's likely because you're only focusing on the "big sell" -- your coaching -- and ignoring the "small sells" in your marketing. 

And I don't mean offering more products. I mean all the IDEAS they have to 'buy into' FIRST before they can 'buy into' getting on your calendar. 

In this episode, I walk you through:

  • The difference between "big sells" and "small sells"
  • Understanding exactly what's keeping your next client from reaching out to you
  • Specific examples of "small selling" that you can implement right away

This concept alone remove so much confusion about how to market so that you're actually getting responses to your offers.

61. How to create your first 5-figure month with Jen, Jennie and Amber
3182

If you want to hear from coaches creating revenue breakthroughs in real time, this is the MUST-LISTEN episode for you. 

THREE of my clients had their first 5-figure months in April 2020.

I got all of them all together to dissect the 'how', while the accomplishment is fresh on their minds. 

Jen Navaro talks about:

  • How she thought she was “all in” but wasn’t actually
  • How to make the switch from hustling to client-creating
  • Why learning how to say "no" to her own ideas was so important
  • The #1 thought that contributed to Jen's 5-figure month

Jennie Juechter talks about:

  • How treating coaching like therapy was sabotaging her 
  • The thought that got her out of niche drama 
  • How ONE challenge got her to "stop dicking around"
  • How to get into the energy that exploded the number of her consults

Amber Bryce reveals:

  • How she got out of feeling complacent
  • One thought that led to 2x sales for Amber
  • How to “install” new beliefs into your brain 
  • How to create repeatable results 

You'll also learn why the LONGEST-lasting mind drama doesn’t even matter, and the sneaky thought that holds women back in business.

This interview is full of gems that will inspire you, and most of all convince you that YOU, TOO, have what it takes to create your first five-figure month... and it's coming sooner than you think.

60. Paradox Tolerance
1174

Being your own boss, you need to be capable of nuanced thinking. That means being able to hold seemingly contradictory ideas in your mind.

On average, people cannot handle paradox, and hence have trouble making powerful decisions when things get a little complex.

For example:

  • If clients have self-agency and are 100% responsible for the results they get, what is the role of the coach? How do we talk about that in marketing?
  • How could it be true that copy is a powerful sales tool, and also that it doesn't matter at all?

If you know how to tolerate complexity, you will be problem-solving at a higher level. And that makes you a more effective coach AND entrepreneur.

In this episode, I will teach you how.

Burnt out from social media marketing?
Frustrated to be pushing out content all the time, but getting no business?

Then you're doing it wrong. There is a better way.

So many coaches approach content creation and sharing with a set of thoughts and assumptions that totally sabotage their goal, and they don't even know how to be aware of it.

In this episode, I will teach you:

  • The difference between transactional posting vs. human posting
  • How to recognize if you're doing the former
  • Why transactional posting DRIVES CLIENTS AWAY
  • And how to post in a way that draws clients IN instead.

What my day-to-day looks like... and what occupies my brain most of the time.

When you publish a lot of copy and don't get the responses you want, it can be discouraging. But worse than that, you feel like you don't even know HOW to evaluate what you're doing. 

If there are no responses to evaluate by, how do you know what to look for? How can you tell what to begin to fix? 

In this episode, I reveal:

  • How to evaluate the most powerful "ingredient" that most people ignore
  • What most people assume helps their copy, but actually hurts it
  • What to do TODAY to set yourself up for evaluation success next week
  • The exact thing you're likely missing when you make a ton of content and are great at being consistent, but are still not getting results

54. How I made 385K in 12 months - Q&A Part 2

In the past 12 months, I created $385,000 from my work as a life coach.

So many people have asked me "how."

I asked friends in my Facebook group to tell me exactly what they wanted to know, I'm dedicating two episodes to answering all of their questions honestly.

And this Part 2 is the most honest episode I've ever recorded. I share personal stories about my own struggles that I haven't shared before.

In this episode, I share:

  • What “flip of the switch” created the difference
  • The highest-impact skill I learned 
  • The single most powerful thought that’s been working for me
  • The mantra I used to increase my “capacity to have”
  • What I did with the money

I asked friends in my Facebook group to tell me exactly what they wanted to know, I'm dedicating two episodes to answering all of their questions honestly.

  • My daily self-coaching that led to multiple 5-figure months

52. Positive mindset vs. Effective mindset
1933

So much of marketing is mindset.

But believing "I can build a fix-figure business!" doesn't necessarily create that result. Ever notice that?

So many coaches tell me that they have a good mindset... and all they now need is some strategy.

The fact of the matter is, if you don't have the exact business you want right now, your mindset is NOT effective.

In this episode, I explain the difference between a positive mindset and an effective mindset, some common mistakes people make, and exactly how to fix it to create the most effective mindset possible.

51. How to run a business that feels like a joyful miracle
1339

It's one thing to build a profitable business... and it's another thing to build a business that you LOVE. 

In fact, so many people hustle and twist themselves into pretzels in order to succeed... and once they 'make it', they have to suffer even more just keep it afloat.

That is not a recipe for a mutually nourishing, loving relationship with your business. If you don't love building your business now, believe it or not, it won't make you happy no matter how much fame and glory it brings you. 

And in this episode, I reveal 3 ways to approach business-building so you can love the journey as much as the destination.

Mar 17, 2020
50. Pain Point Dismissal
886

I'm sharing a new concept that I am calling "pain point dismissal."

It's when you "dismiss" what a potential client experiences as their problem because you believe your perspective is more enlightened. It's the surest way to be an under-booked coach!

Like when a health coach dismisses someone's desire to lose weight.
Or when a relationship coach dismisses someone's desire for their partner to change.

When you don't meet people where they are, they don't trust you to help them... and don't sign with you. Period.

If you find yourself dismissing your prospective clients' pain points, I will offer you TWO strategies that will compel people to trust you and enable you to be in integrity with your coaching philosophy.

I sat down with my colleague Samantha Siffring, a business coach and multiple-6-figure earner.

We talked about how to create, nurture and explode the demand for your business, whatever stage of growth you're in.

From this episode, you'll learn:

  • How to get people noticing you in the beginning
  • The most important belief you can have to grow demand

919

"My list is only X people."
"I only have a small following."

I hear this a lot from my clients and colleagues.

So many life coaches have judgments about the number of people following them, and even thought it feels true, these thoughts are a sneaky thought virus holding them back.

In this episode, I will share ideas for how to think about this in a way that will actually help you grow.

I will also share two of my best tips on what exactly to do when your follower number is "too small".

What if spending LESS time on marketing creates MORE results for your business?

We often follow arbitrary rules about how something has to be, or look, and we can end up spending hours, or weeks, working on something when it could have taken us minutes.

Here are a few time-saving tips that you can immediately implement.

44. Should you space out your offers?
411

"Jab-jab-right hook."

Some marketing experts recommend that you give, give, give... then sell.
If you do too much asking, they'll get sick of being sold to.
So, the story goes, you shouldn't make "too many" offers.

In this short episode, I'm presenting a different way of thinking about offers, and why it's unnecessary to 'space them out'.

... crickets! 

Ever had this experience? Waves of disappointment, discouragement, and even shame can wash over you. You feel the sharp pang of the vulnerability hangover.

Every entrepreneur will experience this. No exceptions.

And how you navigate moments like these is critical to whether you can grow a business that succeeds in the long term.

To be sure, passion is a beautiful thing. Passion can get you dreaming big, showing up, taking meaningful risks, and serving powerfully.

But when it comes to marketing and messaging, it could be poison.

In this episode, I talk about exactly how that works, and what you can do to make sure your passion is serving you rather than hindering you.

37. The one question that can foretell your marketing success

But what if those don't point to longer-term success?

In this episode, I have one powerful question that will reveal something more important than all of that.

34. Why buyers are always lurking
461

Every single successful online business owner I know knows this to be true: people who end up buying are rarely the people who were already liking and commenting on your posts. 

In other words, most of your buyers will come from lurkers.

Here's how to take advantage of all the lurkers already in your orbit, and get them ready to buy.

32. How to leave your people spell-bound
726

There's marketing, then there's magic.

I have my people often telling me, "it's like you cast a spell...."

You can try to convince or cajole prospective customers ... or you can compel them so powerfully, they don't know what hit them.

In this episode, I'll teach you a simple way to do that.

31. How to think about vulnerability hangovers
771

Vulnerability hangovers are NOT fun.

But they're pretty unavoidable if you decided to take up space and market in a way that your business deserves.

In other words, if you're feeling them, it's probably a sign that you're doing something right. 

You don't have to avoid them if you know how to manage those feelings. Learning how to manage my own has made all the difference for my business.

In this episode, I share my exact "thought hacks."

30. 3 thoughts that sabotage your marketing (and how to override them)
1013

As I reflect back on 2019, I can recall three thoughts that had the biggest impact on my marketing and sales.

These weren't new empowering thoughts.

Rather, they were old, sneaky thoughts I'd learned how to recognize and OVERRIDE.

They're not necessarily super 'negative' thoughts. They are subtle, they feel true, and they'll sabotage you at every turn!

In this episode, I share how I worked with them, and how you can, too.

28. Why NOT to stop marketing during the holidays
561

Are you giving yourself a break from marketing on social media?

Because... after all, "it's the holidays"?   

Be curious about the real reasons why, because they could be sabotaging your business the rest of the year.

In this episode, I present you with ideas for how to recognize what's going on, and think differently.

27. How I built my social media confidence
909

When you're confident on social media, it's easy to do business. 

You show up consistently, and speak powerfully, which draws people to you. You make offers boldly, and often, which creates sales.

I am one of the most confident people I know. And I now have a career teaching people how to be confident on social media.

But I wasn't born this way. I worked on it intentionally over time.

In this episode, I share with you the one powerful tool I used to build my own confidence.

26. How to take the anxiety out of making offers
394

The more offers you make, the more you can sell. 
No offers made = no sale.

Obvious, right?

But no matter how awesome your product is, making offers on social media can be nerve-wracking.

But it doesn't have to be.

When you know how to actually enjoy making offers, you'll do more of it... and end up with more sales, more profit!

In this episode, I share how to think about making offers that takes a lot of the stress out of it. 

Dec 17, 2019
25. Why people don't take you up on your FREE offer
972

Often, the best way to start selling is to offer things for free so people can get to know the quality of your work. 

So people offer things like freebies, webinars and mini coaching calls online, free of charge.

But you might have noticed that not all of those offers actually SELL.

And it's easy to get super discouraged when no one takes you up on the offer even when it costs nothing.

If this happened to you, there's no reason to get down on yourself. Here's why nobody 'bought' your free offer, and how to fix it.

CTA = call to action

Writing a lot of CTAs is critical for having a successful business online.

I get so many questions about how to tack on CTAs at the end of posts or emails in a way that feels natural and inviting. 

I have learned how to approach CTAs so that they always feel fun and simple to write.
In this episode, I talk about the exact mindset that I use for my own offers.

433

If you've been confused and conflicted about having to understand, and market to people's 'pain points', you're not alone.

In this episode, I present an alternative that will give you a lot more clarity... and more importantly, FEEL better.

18. How to deal with people's projections
499

If you have the courage to express yourself on social media, people will project their insecurities on you.

"She's fake."
"She's too intimidating."
"He's a show-off."

But you will be able to serve your people best, leave your unique mark on the world and profit... only when you say "F%@$  THAT!" to all that.

Here's how to be immune to other people's projections.

19. The right way to be vulnerable on social media
632

Everyone talks about the importance of being vulnerable on social media. But what does that really mean?

There are a lot of ways to get it 'wrong'. We can easily be manipulative when we think we are being authentic.

Here's how to get it right.

17. How to get unstuck writing copy - Part 2
944

Most people get stuck on social media copy for all the same reasons. 

I've coached clients through them all... and I'm shedding light on some of the most common ones in this episode. 

The tips i'm sharing here will get your content (and ideas) flowing! 

Writing for social media can truly be easy when you remember just a few key things.

Listen on.

15. Things you DON'T need to do to make your first 100K
885

Don't fall into rabbit holes of things you DON'T need to do!

When I was getting started marketing on social media, I tried to spread myself too thin, listened to everyone's advice, tried to adopt all the latest hot strategies, and did things that felt out of integrity for me.

And when I actually succeeded in making my first $100,000 and more, I did so by bucking all the rules, and keeping things radically simple.

So many conventional wisdom on marketing scares you into hustling and doing things out of fear. And none of it is necessary.

In this episode, I break down exactly what is not necessary... and what is vital to do to make your first $100,000 on social media.

16. How to get unstuck writing copy - Part 1
482

"I get stuck. I just don't know what to write."

Is this you? No worries, we can solve this.

The reason you feel 'stuck' writing copy for social media is NEVER that you don't have good ideas, or you're out of ideas, or that you're a bad writer.

It's always because of how you are thinking about who you are talking to, and what you're writing about.

Luckily for us, there are a few simple tweaks we can make to your mindset that will make writing flow out of you much more easily.

In this episode, I present one tip that changes everything for so many of my clients.

14. The surprising reason NOT to plagiarize on social
565

Accidental plagiarism?

So many of us do it when we are so in love with the ideas and styles of those who taught and inspired us, we unconsciously co-opt it as our own.

Hey, I've done it too!

Being inspired and shaped by another is totally normal and awesome. Sounding exactly like them? Not so awesome. 

If you've done that without thinking, that's okay. It doesn't mean you're a bad person!

But you can start doing things differently. 

Listen to the episode to hear my suggestion on what to do instead, and why it matters.

13. Why people say you're "inspiring"... but don't buy from you
936

One of the biggest points of confusion for my students and clients is this:

"I'm so inspired when I create content, and people say I'm inspiring... and yet, why am I not getting sales?"

I was stuck in this confusion for many years myself. 

The truth is, inspiration is not what compels people to buy.

Inspiration is abundant and cheap. Think about how many people you get your inspiration from. Do you want to pay them all? I bet not!

Here's what to focus on instead that will actually create sales.

10. Why you'll never run out of ideas to share
396

If you're always inspired to share things on social media and you hold yourself back, this episode is for you.

Many friends and clients I see try to "save" their ideas for later because they worry they'll run out. But you won't.

In fact, the more you share, the more you'll come up with ideas. And the more you share, it benefits your people more, too. 

I share a brilliant, if a bit gross, metaphor that will help you to make sense of this.

11. You don't need a niche. Here's what you need instead.
1054

Contrary to popular opinion, a niche is not a requirement for success.

This is just a factual truth. So many solopreneurs built multiple 5-figure, 6-figure, and multiple 6-figure businesses without a niche. Myself included! 

If you think that your niche, or lack thereof, is to blame for the fact that your business is not where you want to be, you might be focusing on the wrong problem.

But, let's face it, t is true that you can't be everything for everyone. 

You do need some specificity. So how do you achieve that without a niche?

I spill all in this episode.

9. Why you should be actively turning people OFF
1183

Building a business, we try to appeal to as many people as possible. This sounds like a good idea. After, don't we want a lot of followers and buyers?

But the truth is the opposite.

You must turn off and offend as many people as possible. You're not trying to be difficult! It's just that, the more you share your edges, the more you show up with your undiluted, unedited YOU-ness, the more people will self-select out.

Because your people aren't everybody
Your people are those who are best served by the gifts that only you can bring.

How you win big is by gathering a small, but extremely enthusiastic tribe. You will do that organically when you own what makes you one-of-a-kind.

8. How to run a great Facebook group
926

I built a thriving Facebook group from scratch.

Indeed, a Facebook group is a great way to build community so you can get share your gifts with more people in a more powerful way!

But there are a few critical things that so many people get 'wrong'.

I spill all the beans in this episode.

7. How to overcome your social media past
918

Are you changing careers, or values?

It's never too late to be who you want to be on social media.

If how you've been so far doesn't reflect how you want to be going forward, you might be hyper-conscious of what other people might think about you.

Butt guess what? Nobody cares that much, and you don't owe anyone anything.

You can 100% build thee social media presence you want starting TODAY, and reap all the benefits of it... and you don't even need to scrub your history clean! 

All you need is a few mindset shifts.

6. Why trying to get higher engagement is a mistake
707

A friend in my Fearless on Facebook group 10x'ed his social media engagement by implementing the advice in my free e-book of copy tips.

That's amazing, but that story only tells a part of the picture.

Engagement is cheap. It can be bought, and is vulnerable to algorithm changes.

Resonance cannot be bought, and is the true link to creating the kind of community that will follow you wherever you go. It makes you algorithm-immune. 

Listen to the episode for more.

5. How to become a content machine
1384

"Do you secretly have an army of content producers behind you? How do you produce so much high-value content all the time?", a colleague asked.

It's true. I create multiple (long, substantive) posts a day, accompanied by original images, for my own feed as well as to different groups. I post a new video or do a live almost everyday. I write several (long, substantive) emails to my list a week. I write books... and do this podcast.

And none of it is fluff.

But I don't have an army of content producers. It's all me.
And I'm not glued to a screen all day, either. I do it all in minutes a day.

The answer is NOT a content calendar, some weird batching strategy, or witchcraft.

It's how you THINK.

I tell you all my 'secrets' in this episode.

3. Why there's no point trying to be 'consistent'
793

I never worry about how to be consistent on social media, and neither should you.

Because inconsistency is not the problem, but a symptom of the real problem. And the real problem is what you are thinking about social media. 

People who have trouble with consistency tend to have the same deflating thoughts, like, "I need to do this for my business," or "I need to get good engagement." Thoughts like these create feelings of obligation and heaviness. 

No wonder they don't want to show up! 

I make sure I have thoughts that create joy, lightness and a spirit of service. And the consistency happens automatically.

4. The 10-to-1 Rule of Profitability
892

If you want to make $1,000, make sure you first contribute $10,000 worth of value.

If you want to make $20,000, make sure you first contribute $200,000 worth of value.

This is my 10-to-1 Rule of Profitability.

You get back in profit 10% of what you give freely, 10% of the usefulness that you provide, the service you offer up purely out of the love of being helpful.

2. Don't be proud of not being on social media.
715

"You're making a big mistake if you're not creating content for social media," says entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. 

He could be right. 

Social media works like a digital resume, or a credit score. How you show up, and for how long, matters. It is how we meet new people, get to know our existing friends better, and more importantly for business, how we create loyal fans and customers without having to pay for ads. 

In this episode, I explore why having an authentic social media presence is is one of the best investments of time and energy you can make -- even if you don't have a business.

1. 4 sentences that kill social media efficacy
891

If you don't think social media is working as well for you as it seems to for other people, the problem may not be for lack of good strategy. 

The problem might be your internal dialogue!

If you're telling yourself one of these FOUR things, you're likely holding yourself back from reaching more people and making more money.

I'll tell you what they are... and how to fix it.
