As entrepreneurs, we easily whip out our credit cards to pay for online courses to “fix” ourselves or our businesses, or we splurge on the latest software to stay current but. . . .
Suddenly, when it comes to actually hiring someone to help us, we get skeptical.
The fact of the matter is that your company’s biggest leaps are probably only going to happen when you free yourself—physically and emotionally—for the BIG things.
You’re doing everything in your power to boost traffic to your site. You are improving your reader’s level of engagement, and establishing yourself as an expert.
Because you’re reaching for that ultimate goal—an ongoing stream of customers who can’t wait to get their hands on your products or get the coveted one-on-one support from you.
In our quest to become the go-to expert in our fields, we often wind up feeling overwhelmed by the information we encounter as we keep our fingers pressed firmly on the pulse of our industries.
It seems as though as soon as we get our inboxes down to zero they fill up once again with newsletters and updates from other experts.
I’m constantly called upon to help my clients tame their information overload so they don’t burn out.
With so many things demanding our attention at any given minute focus has become one of the hardest states of mind to achieve.
And yet, it is not at all impossible. The below 7 steps will guide you through the process of achieving laser sharp focus whenever you call for it.
Let’s take a look at them…
Watch my interview with Breanne to learn:
The online learning market trends
The most common reasons we fail to create online courses that get our students results we intend them to have
How we can get better at teaching action and bringing transformation to our students
A roaring crowd of 90,000 fans greeted U2 at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on June 30th, 2009. It was the first of the 110 shows of the 360° Tour. The tour was named for a stage configuration that made it possible for the audience to almost completely surround the stage.
Construction of the stage was of gargantuan proportions. The steel structure weighed 220 tons. The four legs were supporting 170 tons of giant screens, audio, and lighting. It would take five days to erect the structure and another two days to dismantle it before transporting it to the next venue.
The challenge involved maintaining the flow of the back-to-back concerts while seamlessly assembling and transporting “The Claw” between tour dates.
Natasha is one of my favorite people.
You can tell by the way she writes, interacts with her audience and through her videos, that she loves helping people make transformations in their business.
She’s just the kind of person that you want to be around, and you’ve no doubt felt that, since you’re here too!
Hi, I’m Rita Barry, an email marketing strategist and conversion focused website designer. In other words, I help entrepreneurs create email automation sequences, traffic strategies for list building and design their websites based on audience needs and actions (using data instead of hunches!)
I’ve been a happy Trello user for years: I use it for my editorial calendar, for keeping track of my business operations, for passion projects, as well as various team projects I run. I’ve converted at least twenty other people to Trello, and they loved it so much, they started using it for their own business, school, and personal projects.
For every entrepreneur, life is a series of events and segments of time.
Copious spare time is scarce (or non-existent) because there is always something else to do or coming up waiting in the wings.
Products to launch, networking events to attend and leads to follow up with, speaking opportunities to line up and prepare for, deadlines to meet, email newsletters to draft, edit, and schedule to release, marketing campaigns to develop, new clients to get acquainted with, trade shows to prepare for, business goals to reach. The list goes on and on.
For many entrepreneurs without a team, it is your sole responsibility to develop and produce new products and services, create and implement your marketing and social media strategies, attend to administrative tasks, serve as the sales force and deal with customer service issues, pay the bills and collect unpaid monies that are owed to you, network, build your brand, and if you are lucky, get a little bit of sleep or try to have a life outside of your business.
Listen to my conversation with Brigitte to find out how she uses Trello to:
Manage her client work (and how she went about creating her first client project board)
Manage her team (and what it took to transition her business management to Trello)
Create “white space” days, when she goes off the grid and allows her creativity to flow
