Are You Struggling to Build Your List or Following?

If the answer is yes, you might not have niched down enough in your business.

In this episode you’ll learn:
  1. The four steps you need to go through to hone in on your niche tribe business model.

Want to Get New Clients Without Creating Complex Funnels?

Confession #1: I actually really like fancy funnels.

I think funnels are a very effective method of landing new clients.

However, I know not everyone feels the same way or has the money to put into Facebook ads that lead your potential clients to your funnels.

Confession #2: Unfortunately, I’m not the best at doing things the simple way; which is part of why I like funnels.

Fortunately, I know just the man to help explain a simple way you can grow your business without the need for complex funnels!

In This Episode:

Marc Mawhinney is a life-long entrepreneur who helps coaches get more clients without paid advertising.

His dry sense of humor had me laughing more than I have during an interview in a very long time.

I was also deeply able to relate to Marc’s “straight-shooter” approach to his business.

According to Marc, coaches over-complicate the concept of coaching and he’s here to bring some common sense back into it.

In this episode you’ll learn:
  1. How to grow your business organically through producing great content.
  2. How to produce great content consistently.
  3. Marc’s “straight-shooter” approach to how he runs his business and his incredibly successful Facebook community.

Episode 02: Don’t Make Perfect the Enemy

3
What we’re talking about today:

In today’s episode, I’m going to provide you with some strategies and resources to help you get out of your own way and push past your perfectionist tendencies so you can stop stalling and start doing what you’re called to do.

Being a perfectionist is holding you back from getting your message, product, and/or service out to people who are wanting and needing it.

It’s time to stop making perfect the enemy!

I use the example of trying to make everything perfect before launching this podcast as a way to explain why everything doesn’t need to be perfect before launching your product, coaching, program, online course, etc.

Why is this important for your business?

Being a perfectionist is something nearly every entrepreneur struggles with. The reality of the situation is that being a perfectionist makes everything you do take longer than it should.

Learning how to push past perfectionism is also important because it’s likely you’re putting more effort into the project than it really requires.

Each day you spend tweaking your product, programs, etc in an effort to make them perfect, is another day you’re making your clients and potential customers wait for the solution they are desperately seeking to a problem their experiencing.

What can you expect from this training?

By listening to the strategies and downloading the guide, you’ll push past your current barriers to start making things happen now!

If I hadn’t been vetoed, this show would’ve actually been called the “No Regrets Podcast” because that is exactly how I strive to live my life.

When I’m nearing the end of my life, I want to look back and be proud, thankful and not filled with regrets.

What about you? 

Focusing on Entrepreneurship by Design™ will help you create and run a business that allows you to live a life with fulfillment, no regrets and so you can look back on your life and be proud of how you spent your years.

What’s the Point?

IS IT WORTH IT-

What’s the point of what you’re doing? Why are you doing it? Are you fulfilled? Is it worth it?

When you look back on your life, will you be glad and happy?

Those are the questions we’re answering today on the #TuesdayTraining.

As a Mompreneur, we have a delicate balance between freezing moments in time and wanting them to speed up. We hold our babies tight, but also pray for the day when we can get uninterrupted work time. I know. I’ve done it too. So let’s make sure you’re doing work that really matters. Are you creating something worthwhile, or are you just creating something?

Do you know your WHY? Is the WHY big enough to fight for? Is your WHY big enough to sacrifice for?

Is your WHY big enough for your clients to fight and sacrifice for? Do they see YOUR WHY in THEIR WHY?

Take a moment, remove distractions, and listen. We don’t do enough listening in life. (I’m at fault too.)

If this speaks to you, join me for a Deep Dive Business Session. 

You’ll receive an in-depth questionnaire and can expect serious business progress, clarity and a set plan from our time.

Schedule online here. 

It’s my vision to build 20 hour work week high-profit business models for women, so you can live your life with no regrets and love it.

Let me help, I adore you.

Xoxo, April Beach
