Rank #1: 057: Leadership skills you need to run a successful business

Podcast cover
Read more

You own a business. 

Maybe you have a team. Maybe you don’t.

If you’re making money from your business, you’ve got customers.

With all the challenges of running an online business the biggest one I can think of where people get in trouble and the reason why your business goes downhill are those related to your leadership skills.

So, if you have a business, plan to make money, want to build a community, and perhaps eventually have a team to help you run everything, then you are on the path to becoming a leader.

...Whether you like it or not.

That said, many people start businesses without having much practical experience in a leadership role anywhere in their life.

We’re thrown into the role of boss without a day behind the wheel ever!

So today’s episode covers some of the things you need to consider and be aware of as you set off to start, finish, deliver, launch...and take very intentional action every single day.

Rank #3: 157: What To Know Before You Launch Alone

Podcast cover
Read more
When you first start your business, you’re doing everything alone, so it goes without saying that you have to learn how to launch alone at the very early stages. And that means you’re learning what to do, how to do it and trying to figure out WHEN to do it…   This can be fun for a period of time when you’re getting your feet wet, figuring out what your business is, who you serve, and what ideas get brought to those people. It can be kind of fun even.   You may even find yourself daydreaming and wondering when you’ll get to the point when you can finally get help.   But sometimes this alone phase can last awhile.  So – do you wait until you can hire to launch something? It’s kind of feels like the chicken or the egg… do you need to hire a team in order to launch? But wait – don’t you need to launch in order to hire?   And it doesn’t help knowing everyone’s always talking about the benefit of outsourcing, building a good team and nurturing them as you grow your company (me included by the way).   But how do you navigate that period of time BEFORE you are ready, prepared and have the resources to hire?    Is it possible to launch alone?

Rank #5: 080: 3 Ways To Planning A Year Of Launches That Won't Kill You In The Process

Podcast cover
Read more

You’ve got this launching thing down.

You did your first product launch – not a lot of sales, but your list grew, you’re getting rave reviews about your program. You done good.

You are excited – a little pumped – and extremely proud of yourself. You feel like finallyyyy “you get it”.

But you’re feeling something else too.

EXHAUSTED.

You keep thinking, “I’m supposed to do this again?”

How are you supposed to turn back around and do another one? I mean really? Another one? This year?

The emotional rocking that happens during a launch can’t really be understood until you go through it.  Putting yourself out there, putting your energy into a launch, being open to that success or failure. It’s draining on so many levels.

And – if it’s draining for you – it’s draining for your customers too.

But you can avoid launch exhaustion easily.

With what I like to call – A PLAN. (shocker, I know!)

Rank #6: 209: Want A More Profitable Launch? Try These Simple Suggestions To Improve Your Bottom Line Every Time.

Podcast cover
Read more

I want to talk about something I often avoid…because to be honest, I have an aversion to people who promise profit or revenue or any type of specific results.

If you’re listening and part of this community, I’m definitely here to make sure you prepare yourself and your business for launches — because preparation definitely leads to more profits.

That is proven. I’ve seen it time and again with the students in Fearless Launching and I’ve also supported my clients to be totally prepared for their launches.

So here’s what we’re going to cover in today’s episode:

  • First, I’m going to talk about the other drivers that will help you have more profitable launches…
  • Next we’ll talk about the elements of launches that can cause drops in profit or LESS revenue overall
  • How to make your launch budget - bid vs. actual
  • The importance of launch list and what it has to do with your profit

Rank #12: 200: How to Go From Planning to Doing

Podcast cover
Read more

I’m curious about something...

Actually a few things...

  • Are you a planner?
  • Do you plan things out, check off the boxes, and never miss a step?
  • Do you like to map out broad strokes without a ton of detail?
  • Do you find yourself taking action on something every single day?
  • Are there days/weeks/months in between your action (especially as it relates to what you want to launch)?
  • Do you often postpone your launches?
  • Have you never launched because you weren’t sure what to do first?

So, you don’t actually have to tell me the answers to these questions (unless you want to), do it for yourself.

Today’s 200th episode is one that dives in deep to how you can get better at not just planning (your launches, your life, your business), but how to get better at following, DOING, and completing the plan.

Rank #13: 142: Want More People To See Your Content? 6 Ways To Get More Traffic To Your Podcast & Blog Posts

Welcome to another episode - I don’t know if it’s because people are really obsessed with this topic, maybe I am too... but I keep running across posts and posts and downloads and resources all about getting more traffic - to your blog, to your sales page, to your webinars, to your whatever.

And I won’t lie - I got sucked into it. It’s not the first time either.

A few years ago I was trying to create 3 different pieces of content each week. 1 video, 1 blog post, 1 podcast...

Until I said wait - too much. This is not getting me more traffic, more leads or more sales...

So I stopped and returned to an easier 1x a week publishing schedule.

Now - today, i’m going to share what I know about the myths of getting more traffic and some small but powerful actions to get you more eyes on what matters most.

We’ll talk about:

  • 8 traffic getting strategies for your podcast or blog or post
  • Understanding your reasons why for wanting traffic
  • Does more posting really equal more traffic?
  • Batching your traffic why into 90 day segments

Podcast cover

You are so ready for this.

The dates are on the calendar. Team has been hired. Pages are being designed and developed. Everything is moving forward - and you feel great. Confident that you’ve thought of everything to make next launch a success.

You planned it out. Took the time. Talked to your ideal customers.

One of the best things you can do for yourself right now is to ask - Have I missed anything? Do I have all the information I need?

After years of working on launches of all sizes, I’ve seen steps get missed that impact the entire launch. These aren’t necessarily mistakes, but they do effect how smoothly things are running...and are often discovered after the doors are open--when things are a little harder to fix.

Today we’re talking about 5 key steps that are so easy to miss because we don’t see them as steps in the launch planning process.

Re-purpose.

Now reusing content in the simplest sense, means revising, republishing, or updating content that already exists. You can change the format of it - video or audio to text or vice versa!

But - imagine if you had a library of material to pull from - emails, graphics, blog content, videos, audios, or other training.

If there’s anything I know helps me improve and grow my business, it’s establishing better work habits. There’s only so many weeks I can wait until the last second to record a podcast, publish it, write the notes and get it up there in less than 24 hours.

I’ve got a 6 year old and a slightly short attention span.

And at the same time - I’ve got big goals. One of those was to make sure that I could commit to having a weekly podcast. Not every other week or every third week.

So, that’s what I dive into today in this shorter episode about how I got my podcast process back on track.

In this episode I also talk about:

  • The real reason I ended up skipping blogging for 2 months

  • Results of some of my blogging and podcast tests throughout 2014

  • How I plan to get all my publishing content

  • The simple question you can ask yourself about all that content you’re publishing

  • How I’m making the process even easier for myself

  • What happens when you finally have focus + establish a habit

  • Why I’m always evaluating what’s working and what’s not

Welcome to Part 2 of the 6 part series all about getting launch-ready in 2020.

Today we're talking about the perfection problem that exists on every type of creative or launch project I've ever been part of and how to get over it (and yourself) to deliver on time and stick to your launch dates.

As creative entrepreneurs, we want to put our best work into the world. Sometimes though we don't know how to finish it, call it done...because we've got so many ideas.

But there comes a point when you're nearing that open cart date and you'll need to make the decision to cut, prune, and stop the work in order to launch...even when it doesn't include all of your genius ideas.

In this episode, we talk about the mantra I use to keep track of my new ideas, but not let them sideline or halt my entire launch!

But here’s the thing, these 6 episodes are going to be timeless. You’ll want to revisit them whenever you need to get back on track, screw your head on straight or get talked off the ledge…

So in this multi-part series, we're gonna keep it super simple and talk about the 6 things you need to remember, understand, and completely embrace as you start planning your launch, doing the work of putting together all the pieces, and even after you open the doors of your launch.

Each day I’ll post a new episode right below this and then you’ll be able to find all 6 episodes right here!

How To Start & Grow A YouTube Channel with Minnow Pond Tarot

Podcast cover
Read more

Ever thought about starting a YouTube channel? If so, listen up today.

YouTube channels are great ways to build communities, build your audience, sell more of your products, reach more of your ideal customers, and share your expertise on an ever-expanding, highly shareable platform. 

Today’s guest has a tarot, astrology, and lifestyle channel called Minnow Pond. I discovered Chris Reck as I became part of his community…and watching his Tarot readings every single month.

And of course...I got curious. 

Because he wasn’t the only tarot reader on YouTube. In fact, this year it seems like a bazillion readers have shown up online.

So I started digging. How did this whole Minnow Pond thing start? What else was Chris doing in the world? How do tarot readers make money with Youtube as their primary publishing platform?

Getting your legal stuff in order is neither fun nor sexy, but is essential. Many entrepreneurs only get legal stuff in order when things are about to go wrong or only when things have already gone wrong.

We are excited to speak to have Annette Stepanian, a lawyer for creatives and entrepreneurs. From contract drafting, trademark registration to consulting.

Key Talking Points:

  • Annette’s entrepreneurial journey
  • Legal stuff needed in a business
  • How to market without inflicting fear

Bonus: Unexpected Lessons You Can Learn From Investing In Yourself

Podcast cover
Read more

We're often told to invest in your business, yourself, work on your mindset... Always be educating yourself. Be coachable. You may have been encouraged to join a mastermind group to lift and be lifted by your fellow members.

Over the years I've had some incredible mentors...

In today's episode, I'm sharing 8 lessons I learned as a result of investing in myself and my business. These are not lessons you might expect from being in any type of online group program...and they aren't the tangibles outcomes I expected!

I get personal here and you may be surprised to see that Anne isn't always the cheerful, positive, always pushing/planning, generous type! I'm willing to show these parts of myself to you...because I was willing to really look at myself and the things holding me back. I'm not proud of some of my reactions, but I know there was growth, because as soon as I started to acknowledge those shadow parts of myself...things changed.

I hope you'll also be inspired to take a look at yourself too!

Make sure to get on The Message Lab™ waitlist right now if you want to learn how to face yourself, share yourself, and then communicate with more clarity during your launches!

Bonus: Setting Boundaries As a Business Owner: How Close Is Too Close?

Podcast cover
Read more

Boundaries give you and your people structure...and space. Set the expectations and you’ll avoid feeling trapped, feeling tired, drained, resentful.

Now, I have always prided myself on being close to the people I work with. I’ve been told time and again not to be friends with everyone...and I definitely am not close confidants with people, but I always meet people who I love on a personal level too!

But as I mentioned in a previous bonus, that’s something that weighed me down as things got harder and harder to manage in my personal life.

I’ve always maintained that people want this high touch...and I  like to be the one to give it.

But I realized that not having boundaries means parts of my business, things I want to create, to improve, are sidelined...

So, here's how to set those boundaries and set them right now!

We cover the topic of boundaries and setting expectations with your clients/customers inside my upcoming program, The Message Lab.
