There’s so much we can learn from other people’s journeys, so I wanted to end this season of the Get Paid Podcast sharing a little bit about my own business-building journey and some of the mindset shifts and realizations I’ve had about being a business owner. Most of them are recent, others have been percolating for a few years, but I believe all of them are going to help me (and hopefully some of you) keep going.“What would you do if you were the best fucking copywriter or designer or business coach or ad consultant? What would you start doing if it was proven that you were the absolute best?” — Claire PelletreauClick To Tweet
Becca Tracey teaches solopreneurs to build a business that helps them finally live their dream life (of working without pants and never setting foot in a crappy cubicle again). As the head/only honcho at The Uncaged Life, she works with online business owners to get clear on their brand message, create packages that sell, and helps them learn what it actually takes to get and keep clients.
Today, she’s back on the Get Paid Podcast to talk about her progress towards her million dollar goal, adding evergreen offers between her live launches, buying investment properties, and hiring her first full time employee and a CFO.“I can't imagine fully taking myself out of my program because I love doing the live classes so much. But if data shows that an evergreen option is cannibalizing live launch sales, then I’ll have to rethink my business model.” — Becca TraceyClick To Tweet
An award-winning screenwriter, business strategist and the creator of Story School, Jamie Jensen has helped over 700 entrepreneurs increase their sales by up to 900% with the power of effective storytelling. Prior to helping business leaders connect deeply with their audiences through copy, video, and talks, she worked in story development in Hollywood, assisting writers in both film & television.
Today, Jamie’s on the Get Paid Podcast to chat about her transition from running a copywriting agency towards launching courses, the strategies that worked and the ones that didn’t, dealing with grief while running a business, and how the change in business model affected her bottom line.“The power of authentic, vulnerable storytelling is that you create permission for other people to face things that in their own life and history that they maybe aren't looking at. ” — Jamie JensenClick To Tweet
Gwen Castleberry is a certified OBM and has been working as a VA/OBM since 2013. She helps online entrepreneurs bring structure and flow to their businesses through project management and systematization. Having worked in a variety of jobs from selling corn on a farm to teaching college classes, Gwen firmly believes that it doesn’t matter what industry you’re in. What matters is providing value and building relationships.
Gwen’s not just any OBM though, and has been with my business since the Dark Ages. Tune in to this episode of Where Are They Now to see how our relationship has evolved, how Gwen’s business has grown, and things to keep in mind as you consider bringing on your own OBM.“You can't assume that something that comes easily to you isn't valuable to somebody else. Not everybody does it naturally. ” — Gwen CastleberryClick To Tweet
Melanie Miller teaches women how to create Profitable, Liveable, Loveable businesses (without fear or guilt). Over the past 9 years, Melanie has helped over 6000 people build more sustainable businesses through the Profit Lovers community.
Now she’s back on the Get Paid Podcast to talk about how her business has changed, the numbers that every business needs to keep an eye on, making a profit on a tiny list, and how sexy she finds Doctor Phil.“If you can't manage your revenue at 5k a month, you can't do it at 35k a month. It’s a skill you have to learn. Just because you go into business doesn't mean you automatically know how to manage cash flow.” — Melanie MillerClick To Tweet
