Not enough time but want to have a bigger impact?

Not enough time but want to have a bigger impact?

When I first had the idea of starting my own business, I didn't know how I was going to find the time for it. I barely had time to sit down for 5 minutes with a newborn and a degree to finish, let alone run a business!

There's so much to do around the house, food needs to be cooked (and bought), the kids need to be looked after, you've got Game of Thrones to watch on the TV... (2 weeks to go!)

If you want it badly enough then you'll make time for it. So how do you get more time?

Well, you don't, there is no more time so it's all about how you use what you have. Being smart about how you use your time is pretty much like getting more of it, so here's 5 ways to 'get more time':

1 - Create a schedule for your family so everyone is doing the chores and not just you. After all, you're not the only one who makes the mess so you don’t have to be the only one responsible for cleaning it up.

2 - Send your children to some kind of childcare if they're not in school or ask grandparents to have them one day a week. They'll get more time with their family and you'll get more time to work. We have a daddy daughter day every Saturday where my husband spends some quality time with our daughter. He works 9-5 Monday to Friday at his business so they both love having that one to one time on the weekend to do something fun together.

3 - Hire help. Whether that's a virtual assistant, a cleaner, a gardener, whatever you need. Spending the money on having someone else do it will give you the time you need to get other money making tasks done. If you charge $97 for a one hour call with you and a cleaner is $10 an hour, that’s 9 hours of cleaning you could get back.

4 - Say no to things you don't want to go to. If you've been asked to organise a bake sale, a charity car wash, a social event for work or some other soul destroying waste of your time, say no. There are plenty of other people who will do it. If you say no they're just going to move down the list to the next person.

5 - Stop watching so much TV! You don't have to watch everything that Shonda Rhymes ever wrote, no matter how awesome it is. Save them all up to binge watch in one day if you must or ask for them on boxset for Christmas. Just don't spend every evening in front of the TV and wonder why you're not getting anything done.

What can you do today to be smarter with your time?

One thing you definitely can do is make sure you're attracting the right audience to you and that you have a way to communicate with them. One of the best ways I've found to do this is via a Facebook group.

My top 2 favourite ways to grow your Facebook group without paid advertising are:

1 – Host a mini masterclass on a topic you know very well via livestream and promote the event all over social media. If people want to learn about the topic, all they need to do is join your group for free access.

2 – Create a resource that’s only for the group (like a value packed PDF) and put it in the files section of the group. You have to be a member of the group to access it, so let people know what it is and why they need it, then direct them to join your group to get a copy.

I go way more in depth about how and why these work, plus another 3 ways you can promote your group for free here!

Struggling to create your first online course?

Struggling to create your first online course?

One way to create an awesome mini video course and give it away as a freebie to grow your list is to use an automated email series.

MailChimp and Aweber (and I’m sure all the other big names) have functions where you can set up a series of emails that are sent at predetermined intervals. Using this means you can record say 5 videos, put them in one email each and then when people sign up they’ll get day one immediately and each subsequent day is delivered automatically 24 hours later.

It’s an easy way to deliver a ton of value with zero stress on your part.

Are you still trading time for money?

Are you still trading time for money?

Do you ever feel like you're having success in your business but you really have to work for it and you're not sure how much more you have to give?

I felt like that for a long time in my business. I'd spent all my time getting the back end stuff ready in my business, thinking that once it was done it would only be a matter of time until I got clients.

And it was only matter of time BUT I had to actively look for clients. I had to actively find people I knew needed my help but weren't aware of me yet.

It was EXHAUSTING.

I would spend about 10 hours on Facebook every single day. I couldn't go more than about 15 minutes without checking my notifications because I was so desperate to get clients and make sales.

I would post 4 times a day in 8 different Facebook groups (all individual posts!) I would search for keywords in Facebook groups and respond to people's posts who were having issues I could help with. I was giving so much free value that I really was giving it all away and I was putting offers out at least 3 times a week... but nothing.

I drove myself crazy wondering what I was doing wrong. Why was it so hard?!

It wasn't until I took a step back and looked at all the women who I admired and what they were doing in their business that I realised something.

They all had a growing and engaged Facebook group.

And on top of that, their group was pretty much the only place they posted on Facebook.

So I stopped posting so much. I drastically reduced my time online from 10 hours a day to about 2 and I stopped giving so much away for free. But the biggest change I made was starting my own Facebook group. 

A year ago I decided that starting my own Facebook group sounded like a good idea. It meant that I'd have somewhere where I could build relationships with potential clients, I could show my expertise and my knowledge and I'd be able to pitch without worrying about breaking the rules.

I've just reached 1,000 members in my group and over half of them have joined in the last couple of months. And truthfully, over 80% of my sales currently come from my Facebook community because this is what happens THERE:
- I've built relationships with so many of the members.
- I show up there every day and my Facebook group is known as a place to find amazing value and community.

Once your Facebook group is set up and growing consistently, building relationships and converting leads to paying clients who want your passive income offers becomes effortless. That leaves you with more time to do the things you actually want to do, like spend time with your friends and family, travel or even go to the cinema on a Tuesday afternoon because you can.

I created From Crickets to Clients because I saw so many of my clients struggling, giving up on their groups and wasting the online goldmine a group can be, all because they didn't have a plan to follow to start getting results from their groups.

I know you don't want yet another course that's supposed to be full of "the how" but leaves you with more questions than answers and I know you don't want to waste what little time you have. That's why this course is bite size video modules with accompanying PDF workbooks to help you quickly and easily grow your Facebook group into a space that not only attracts new members but also converts them to paying clients.

Once you enrol you'll get access to all of the modules at once, so you can work through them at your own pace or Netflix style binge watch it all in 2 hours.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses

We all have our strengths and weaknesses

Even though my business is focused on passive income, I still love creating content. Sharing my story, sharing value, connecting with people through my words is something I love to do.

It’s also how people get to know, like and trust you and how you share what you have to offer with the world. Not to mention sharing your products and services is how you make sales ;)

But I also know that it’s not something that comes easily to everyone else. Like most things, we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Or, rather, those things that we’re not as good at as we’d like to be.

So, with that in mind, here’s 3 things you could share on social media:

1 – The 3 most important lessons you’ve learnt this year,

2 – Your number one resource for X (in your business),

3 – A goal you never thought you’d reach since you’ve been in business and exactly how you did it.

Creating content doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn’t have to be profound or perfect every single time, putting yourself out there and being real is what counts.

Are you reusing what you already have?

Are you reusing what you already have?

Passive income is awesome. There's no other word to describe it.

It's using what you've already got, extending its lifespan, making more money from it and NOT creating any extra work for yourself.

Setting up passive income streams for your business is easy and doesn't require any tech skills on your part. And the best part is, pretty much every kind of business can have a passive income stream.

So if you spent an hour setting up your passive product and then whenever you wanted a boost, you could post on social media, email your list, do a livestream (or whatever) and make money without having to do anything, wouldn't that be amazing?

Did you know that if you made just $19 every day, in a year that's $6,935? That's extra cash that you haven't traded your time for.

If you made $100 every day, that's $36,500 a year – WITHOUT counting all the income from your 1:1 services. I don't know about you but an EXTRA $36,500 in my bank account every year would be pretty cool.

But it's so hard to make $100 every day right?

No, it’s honestly not.

And since I know that it isn't as simple as make a product and sell it, I am bringing in Magnetic Branding Strategist Beth Griffith to help you create your step-by-step strategy to SELL that product, so it doesn't become another fruitless piece for your theoretical portfolio.

We all know that the wealthy have multiple streams of income, and this is one of the ways that you create one without taking away from your already limited hours and emotional energy.

This programme isn't for everyone - it is only for those whose businesses are ready to add an additional stream of income, those who have begun growing an audience and are seeing sales.

What would you do if you made an extra $36,500 by this time next year without having to HUSTLE for it?

If I gave you $14,000 to work for a couple of days and then showed you how to promote your work from those few days off and on over the next year, would you want it?

Because that's EXACTLY what I am offering to the 10 women who join Passive Breakthrough.

You invest in yourself once, spend an intense couple of days with hardcore focus, and then you will have two passive income products ready to rock and roll in 2018.

We knock out the creation of your products in TWO days and then you have 4 weeks of ongoing support in the Facebook group, as you start selling your product, to address any adjustments you need made.

Did you make money from your last Netflix style binge?

Did you make money from your last Netflix style binge?

Growing your audience isn’t difficult, it isn’t time consuming and it isn’t expensive, even if you have zero tech skills.

If you want to grow your Facebook group then you have to talk about it, you have to put it out there and you have to tell people why they need to be in your group.

One thing that always stopped me putting myself and my group out there was my mindset. What if people don’t like what I have to say?

What if people don’t think I’m any good?

What if what I put out there doesn’t help anyone?!

It’s crazy where your mind can go when you’re new to running an online business.

It took a while but I changed my mindset, and that for me was huge, but I know that for some of you your mindset is already on point and nothing is happening for you. It’s the know how that’s letting you down, you haven’t found what works for you. You need the practical strategies, the tools and the techniques that actually work to help you grow your Facebook group.

You’re tired of all the fluff and filler, the webinars full of zero value and sales pitches galore. You want something packed full of easily digestible, to the point action steps that you can take right now to grow your group.

You know that growing your Facebook group helps you to grow your bank account, because when you have an audience full of people who know, like and trust you sales become easier. Creating what to sell becomes simple and objections like “I can’t afford it” stop popping up, because your audience already knows how awesome you are and exactly how you can help them.

If you’re struggling to grow your group one thing that works really well is to put a PDF packed full of value in the files section of your group, then promote that freebie and direct the people who want it to your group. They can only access the file from inside your group and once they’ve joined they’re going to stick around for at least a little while to see what your group is all about.

I've created From Crickets to Clients - a 5 module course that will help you do exactly that. It's full of bitesize videos with PDF workbooks to help you grow your group and your bank account. Plus a bonus module with 50 questions that will get your group engaged straight away.

You’re ready to learn how to grow your group with zero ad spend, how to create an engaged group (or revive a quiet one) and how you can spend an hour (or less) a day in your group and still be actively converting members to paying clients. Sign up here now to Netflix style binge the content in less than 2 hours.

Is your Facebook group feeling more like work than fun?

Is your Facebook group feeling more like work than fun?

You started your group because you were told it was THE thing to do to get clients, only now it feels like a ball and chain.

You don't want to close it because that means throwing away all the time and effort you've already put into it, but at the same time you just can't face doing anything with it.

Every time you think you should post, you're not feeling what you've written.

Every time you want to sell out your new 1:1 or group, you know no one in your group is going to buy.

What's the point of spending all that time, effort and energy on something that isn't serving you?

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, your group isn’t getting you results?

I’ve been there. I used to spend 10+ hours a day on social media with very little to show for it, except increased levels of stress and frustration. I’d got to the point where I didn’t want to spend time in my group, because I was getting better results posting in other people's groups.

But once I started focusing on my Facebook group, because I'd reached a plateau using other groups, I realised that I wasn’t using it to its full potential.

I spent so long tweaking what I was doing in my group, adjusting the way I promoted it and reading up on every piece of fb group advice I could find, but eventually I’d created and nurtured this community of women who were talking to each other, sharing tips and tools to build each other up and congratulating each other.

I realised that I’d created this community of women who were engaged with what I did, who interacted with what I had to say and (the biggest thing I was missing) were ready to work with me. Once I started promoting what I had for sale, I quickly realised what a powerful sales tool a Facebook group can be.

My group is over a year old now and it’s still growing and engaged. 80% of my sales come from the group and I’m loving working on and in my business every day.

But I still remember what it felt like when my group felt like a weight around my neck and that is why I created From Crickets to Clients. I’ve put together every tool, technique and strategy I used to grow my group full of potential clients and how I easily convert group members to clients every day.

I’ll show you how you can:

- Attract your ideal client to the group so that they come to you,

- Keep (or get) the group engaged so that new members want to stay,

- Convert members to clients so you can fill your calendar,

- Promote the group organically (with no ad spend.)

With From Crickets to Clients you’ll receive a self-study course with 5 modules and downloadable PDFs that will turn your soul sucking business into something that grows your bank account. 

Are you ready? Here’s your access right now for $57, where you can Netflix style binge watch the training in under 2 hours.

Wondering what REALLY gets you results?

Wondering what REALLY gets you results?

About a year into my business I’d hit a definite plateau and it was like nothing I did made a difference. So I decided that instead of having all these ideas of what I COULD do flying around my head, I’d write it all down.

All my ideas,

All the advice I’d been given by coaches I’d worked with,

All the strategies I’d got from courses and webinars and PDFs,

All the words you’re “supposed” to use in your copy to get guaranteed results (and the ones you can’t use.)

I wrote it all down and it took the best part of an hour.

I was tired at the end of it, drained of all the information in my head.

Then I took a step back to read it all and after a while it hit me.

It was all completely different.

Some of it was conflicting information. Well, more than some.

There was almost no consistency to any of it, except for one thing…

It all worked.

As individual pieces, all of that information worked to a certain extent and it had all worked for someone. The people I had learnt all of it from – they all got results doing what they do and they’re teaching other people what they know works.

I’ve got nothing against that, I do it too. If I know something works then of course I’m going to tell my clients so that they can get results too.

But here’s the other thing – not all of it will work for everyone.

And that’s also the best part, you can pick and choose what you like to do, what feels in alignment for you and what works for you.

Whatever you decide to do, consistency and persistence is what really works.

Showing up every day, putting the time and the effort in, giving it your best, your all – that is what gets results.

We all know that overnight successes are anything but, so why are you still expecting it to happen for you?

It’s time to stop wondering what to do, pick one thing and go for it.
