I call it, “Squirrel!” Our guest today is really, really good at helping you with that. Her name is Kelly McCausey. Kelly is going to help us learn about Bright Shiny Object Syndrome. Kelly, how are you doing today?Kelly McCausey: I'm great. How are you?Brian: I'm awesome. So, tell us who you are and how did you get to going from being a high school drop out to a solopreneur coach? There's got to be something in the middle there.» Expand To View More - Click HereKelly: There's a lot in the middle and it's all exciting to me. Being a high school drop out meant I had trouble with money pretty much from the get-go. Being hard to employ hard to promote, hard to credit, I felt like I always startled with money, never had enough and that pretty much describes the first 25 years of my life. But there was a point where someone suggested that I could make some extra money providing a service, doing some desktop publishing. I created a website to offer those services and no one hired me to desktop publish, but lots have wanted me to build them a website. Just like that.That brought me into the world of working home moms. My web host was Working Home Moms, my clients were work-at-home moms and as I would work on their websites, I would see all the different ways that they were making money and it made me very curious. [inaudible] but I had a community at the time, internet-based moms and it was a busy forum where I would sign lots of clients and outside became friends and ended up actually creating a membership site together that was launched in 2004. It completely changed my life because I went from being broke, under-employed to making a really exciting income just by shepherding a community and helping them find the information they needed to be successful.Brian: Awesome. Now that you're doing this stuff, let's talk about “bright shiny objects.” What are bright shiny objects in business and believe me, I understand. But explain to my audience, what do you mean by bright shiny objects?Kelly: In the internet marketing world and business in general, I'm sure Bright Shiny Object Syndrome is an issue, but in the internet marketing world, it's an epidemic of massive proportions.How many mailing lists are you on, Brian? How many people are you subscribed to?Brian: Too many to mention. I'm going to guess there's probably about 25 or 30.Kelly: Then how many Facebook pages have you liked? How many podcasts have you subscribed to?Brian: Too many?Kelly: The input is huge and constant. I just comes in waves – information and offers and they're all so sparkly, they're all so shiny and new. I know when I was first starting to make money on the internet, I knew how to do something, I knew how to create a graphic and sell it, how to create a website and sell it,

Ep. 290 - Creating Community to Grow Your Side Hustle with Kelly McCausey

Pep Talks for Side Hustlers

If you’ve listened to Pep Talks for Side Hustlers for any length of time, you know that once a month I give you a look behind the scenes of my business into not only the financials and the strategies, but also the journey of me running up against my limiting beliefs and having to work through my fear and self-doubt on my quest reach the goals I’ve set for myself. And just like any good quest, I meet people along the way who reveal the path forward for me, and my conversation with today’s guest was another one of those transformational moments. Kelly McCausey is the founder of Love People + Make Money, a membership program for female entrepreneurs, especially single moms, to help them build up their communities and businesses. One of the reasons I was so excited to have Kelly on the show is that just like me, she’s all about building a business through relationships and community. Kelly and I did this interview at the end of January and at the time, I was just closing out my biggest revenue month ever, and like I told you back in my January 2020 Income Report that one of my podcast guests mentioned the book “The Big Leap” to me in an interview. That was Kelly.  And she probably doesn’t know this, but her recommendation sent me on that four-month long journey that I talked about in my April 2020 Income Report (288) to rewire my mindset around money, my self-worth, how I value my body of work and what makes me happy.  That’s the kind of person Kelly is, and that’s the kind of impact she can have on someone in a single conversation, so I’m super excited to introduce you to her today so you can connect with her and change your life too. Today we’re talking about: Kelly’s journey from starting a work-at-home-mom radio station to building a community around her podcast. How she creates connections and community. How she started monetizing without trading hours for dollars. How she sets herself apart + finds success in a saturated market. Why building real, genuine relationships will build your business. What a typical day looks like for Kelly. Her best advice if you’re struggling to grow your business. The one belief Kelly had to change about herself to get where she is today. My favorite quotes from Kelly: “When you're brand new, the most important thing you can do is take a stand and have something to say.”  “If you want people to know that you're legit and that you care about them, then then show it” “Create content that gives value, create experiences that deliver value. Create the opportunities for people to see you the way you want to be seen." “A great brand comes out of knowing yourself and knowing your community so well.” Resources mentioned in this episode: Jessica Larue Mastermind Hub Code: Kelly The Big Leap Book Bio: I got my start in 2002.
