Freedom Fix: What Do THEY Have That You Don’t?

It’s pretty simple to start an online business.

  • Set up your website,
  • Offer your product or services (or both),
  • Do some marketing to create visibility,

… and unless you’re way off the mark, you should be able to bring in some customers in a relatively short period of time.

But simple doesn’t guarantee easy…

Enjoying an online business that pays the bills consistently AND goes above and beyond to support the lifestyle you dreamed about when you became an entrepreneur can be quite another matter.

Have you noticed, watched and maybe even envied highly successful women who seem to have it all together?

They have a great business, manage to spend time with their families and doing other things they love, and even enjoy luxuries like a vacation (or two) every year or summers at the lake.

So what makes them different from you? Why is their business thriving, while yours feels like a never-ending story of struggle? How do they manage to get so much done so efficiently – and profitably?

The answer, nine times out of ten, is that they have “help”.

By help, I don’t mean they outsource their work (although they likely do). What I mean is they have someone in their corner helping them to stay focused, on target, clearly envisioning their goals and the path to achieve them.

In short, they have a coach.

Just like your high-school sports teams had a coach to help them play better, faster, and more efficiently, a business coach helps entrepreneurs improve their workflow, market more effectively, make confident decisions quickly and build a stronger business.

In the case of the online entrepreneurs (a.k.a. freedom FUNatics) who step into my coaching circle… a success coach devoted to kicking overwhelm, overwork and underpay to the curb so high-achieving women can get their business groove back and freedom fix fast!

And here’s WHY coaching works…

First, it’s human nature to place a much higher value on that which we pay for. When you invest in your success through a coach, you are more inclined to lean in and do what is required to up level your success.

And, because your coach is generally someone you admire, but not necessarily your friend, you’re less likely to want to disappoint him/her with inaction.

Finally, your coach has real business experiences that you do not. She’s been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. She can see clearly where you need to take action (and why).

Left on your own, you might waste valuable months, or years, with a trial and error approach, just to arrive at the same place a well-trained coach can help you achieve in a much shorter time.

Think you’re ready to hire a success coach? This post is the first of five – a guide to hiring a success coach showcasing what you need to do BEFORE you consider it.

I’ve personally weathered the storm of fears around this too… so rest assured, you are not alone in the tug of war between knowing that a coach is that next big step to up level your success and yet still resisting, doubting, procrastinating at the same time.

And for those of you who are tired of going it alone and beyond ready to see some real results but aren’t quite ready to commit to a high level program just yet my Accelerate Your Biz in 90 Days e-Coaching Program gives you above average access to me at a super affordable price.

It just may be EXACTLY what you’ve been looking for. 

Don’t wait to check it out though, there are only a handful of spots! 


Do You Need a “Blueprint” to be Successful Online?

What if you could have a personal tour guide …

Modern BusinesswomanConsider this – spend a few minutes on google and you will find hundreds (probably thousands!) of “online success blueprints”… from how to create a website, to publishing an ezine; to creating your opt-in freebie, using autoresponders, publishing info products, writing articles, hosting teleseminars, being a guest on radio shows, writing sales copy and more…

They come in all shapes and sizes too: ebooks, toolkits, software, audio products, membership programs, etc.  I sell them myself and they’re great but, they’re not the only thing you need to be successful.

If blueprints were enough we’d all be making millions online.

A blueprint simply points you in one specific direction where personal coaching is like having your own personal tour guide to show you the way, highlighting important things along the way as they relate to YOU.

Think of it this way… A blueprint can teach you how to publish an online newsletter but it can’t tell you if you’ve actually created a good newsletter. It doesn’t know if you’ve put together the most noteworthy buzzable newsletter ever seen or, one that could go down in history as the worst ever. Nor can a blueprint provide feedback on how to IMPROVE a potential flop either.

Don’t get me wrong, a blueprint is a great starting place but, personal coaching provides specific and precise feedback that rapidly closes the gap between where you are now and the goals you have for your business.

And this is where I can help you …

Top Five Reasons Why It’s So Smart to be Equity-Rich Online

“Equity-Rich” is more than just a business model…

Woman in business online 7

It’s more than a system or process. It’s an approach to doing and being a wildly successful online entrepreneur. It’s like being able to put on a pair of smart glasses that increases your speed of success, from the impact you make to the revenue you generate.

When you make this shift and begin to look at your business from an equity-rich point of view it’s the difference between putting out a fire with a garden hose versus a fire hose. Now you’re getting somewhere right!

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. ~ Wayne Dyer

Having an equity-rich approach to your online success is a smart way to do and be in business… Here’s why:

1. Equity: When you build equity in your business you increase the value of it. Your ability to build equity comes in many forms from the programs and products you create to the systems and business model(s) you leverage. A simple example is a membership-based business. Each new member builds equity in the company. When you are able to clearly identify the equity within your business it becomes an “asset” that you can sell.

An equity-rich approach reaches beyond the traditional “solo-preneur” view and explores what if’s such as… What if there comes a time where you don’t want to (or can’t) continue the business? An equity-rich approach takes the solo out of solopreneur and ensures the life equity (time) you invest in the creation, development and evolution of your business becomes an asset that you or your family (estate) can leverage in the future. (i.e. a company that could be sold despite your involvement).

2. Leverage: Your ability to apply leverage within your business is what enables you to make more in less time, to do more with less effort. From time, money, expertise, relationships, energy, business model and more… there are a multitude of ways to leverage what you’ve got to get what you really want.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Why just do it when you can REALLY do it?

3. Asset Development: An equity-rich approach to business explores asset creation and how each asset adds value (equity) to the business as well as to your ideal clients. An example of an asset is an in-demand product or service. An “equity-rich” asset is one that can be leveraged to build equity from a long-term perspective.

4. ROI (Return on Investment): Starting and growing a thriving business online requires an investment of time, money, faith and more. An equity-rich approach looks at how you can get the best return on your investment – for the long term.

When you make decisions from this equity-rich vantage point it becomes easy to evaluate what’s smart and what’s not. Your ability to build equity, create and leverage assets for the greatest return on investment becomes a filter that makes evaluating opportunities easy-peasy!

Clarity = confidence and it is the heart beat of an equity-rich approach that supports the leaps and momentum success-driven women crave.

5. Legacy: Now here’s where SMART meets BIG THINKER… When an entrepreneur looks at their business in this way everyone wins. It’s the difference between a hobby business and a business owner/CEO.

As I mentioned above, an equity-rich approach to business looks beyond the solo in solopreneur and explores the question… what if you didn’t want to keep doing this business or what if something happened and you couldn’t. What measures are in place to ensure that your family can fully leverage your success?

From the creation of an online operations manual, multiple and passive revenue streams to the very foundation of your business model, you can build an equity-rich business that honors your legacy – adding value and increase to the lives of your ideal clients and the lives of your family – whether you’re actively engaged or not.

An equity-rich approach to business is a catalyst that accelerates success long term. If you’d like to explore the concept further, join me for the Equity-Rich Women Online Teleseries. It’s on now…
