There’s this idea spreading around the online business landscape that says anyone can package up their knowledge and sell it.  And while that’s true – in order to stand out – it’s important that your training sticks with your students. Can you say that is true about your own product with complete confidence?  Do you know what your customers will remember after they leave your course, finish reading your book, or stop working with you?  Karen Sargeant of the Sunny Patio Project joins us today on the podcast to discuss...

Today’s episode features Hilary Rushford - style blogger, stylist, and now entrepreneurial guide + strategist...and author!

This lovely has so much energy and insight to give, even seasoned business owners have something to learn here.

Rank #4: 107: Write & Send Better Launch Emails

Podcast cover
Read more

I don’t care who you are…

Communication can be challenging when you’re first starting your business or marketing new products.

You’re not sure what to say, when to say it, how to say…

And then there’s the question of sending emails and how many to send...and how often.

Overwhelm and worry can set in fast...all the sudden you’re unsure, insecure…

Add a launch to that anxiety and you’ve got a recipe...and you might feel immediate paralysis.

You’ll question every email you send, worry you’re scaring people away, get angry when people don’t respond and more!

Rank #5: 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!

Rank #6: 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 #9: 169: How To Believe In Yourself and Your Ideas

Podcast cover

Let me ask you a question… and be honest with yourself...

Do you truly believe in yourself? Do you believe you have value to share? Do you believe you can figure out how to use all the online tools to deliver something to people you’ll call customers?

Do you think your ideas are worthy? Do you think you are good enough?

Do you think that you are experienced enough/pretty enough/the right age/etc. to impact people?

Do you think you can stick to a schedule or a plan? Are you confident you can deliver this week’s newsletter?

How do you react or respond when your “plan” goes off the rails? When you can’t do something on your own?

If you want to know why asking these questions is important to your next launch, listen today.

Rank #14: 182: 5 Key Steps To Planning Your Launch (that are easy to miss)

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.

Rank #16: 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.

Podcast cover

How important is writing effective marketing and launch copy to your launch results?

If you’ve ever had trouble writing copy, creating a sales page, writing the emails, or simply figure out WHAT TO SAY…today’s episode is for you.

Writing marketing copy can be one of the most challenging parts of the entire launch process.

Why? Because it’s not something you just master and then you’re good to go.

It’s a practice you need to keep doing, keep getting better at, keep honing...all through your business.

That’s why many seasoned entrepreneurs and business owners hire expert copywriters to help them write their sales pages, their emails, and even their social media messages.

Today’s episode is a recent Facebook Live conversation with one of the smartest sales and launch copywriters I know!

Christine Blubaugh is also a second-time co-host on the podcast. When I find amazing people, I always try to keep working, collaborating with them….so I had to bring her back!

Rank #18: 020 How focusing on your community can jumpstart your business with Racheal Cook from The Yogipreneur

Podcast cover
Read more

A few weeks ago - I got this email from Racheal Cook, friend, past client, and amazing entrepreneur.

Here’s what Racheal said:

Just wanted to reach out to let you know the results of the Fired Up + Focused Challenge that you helped me map out early this year. Basically... it's been the most awesome thing ever!

Since launching the challenge -

  • Email list has DOUBLED {all organically with only a few emails to my own list to kick it off and NO Facebook ads}

  • Converted 4.5% Challengers into PAID CLIENTS {previous launch strategy of 3-part video series converted less than 1.5%}

  • January 2014 was the best month EVER - over $75K! - between sold out CBD + mentorship clients

By the time I close out 2014, this challenge alone will have 3x my biz over last year.

I knew I had to bring Racheal back because I’ve worked with her a few different times for different reasons...once after becoming a new mom and then awhile later when she was ready to shake things up.

Here’s what we talked about today:

  • Racheal shares her previous launch strategy - and why she decided to change it

  • How long it took her to realize she wanted to improve sales and conversion

  • How we worked together and came up with the idea of the Fired Up and Focused Challenge

  • The shift she made and the exact results it has brought to her business and launches

  • What you need to know about testing, playing around, and changing things up in your business

Plus - she sums it all up to the biggest reason she’s had so much success this year (and it’s something you can start doing way before you launch)

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.

  • First, I’m going to talk about the other drivers that will help you have more profitable launches…

Rank #20: 149: Transformational Teaching Strategies With James Wedmore

Podcast cover
Read more

Being an amazing teacher can make a difference in the lives of the people that the teacher has touched. Becoming an amazing teacher can be taught, but some people just have an innate ability to share knowledge in a way that  deeply resonates. Today’s guest is one such person. In fact, his wife who is trained as a teacher even thinks that his teaching abilities are exceptional.

James Wedmore is the Founder of Business By Design. He is a true leader and a true teacher who has helped me tremendously. James has always had a passion to teach. When he learns something he cares about, he pours that passion into his teaching. He began with an online bartending school, and moved on to his true passion which is teaching You Tube and video marketing. James is a teacher that really cares, and he tries to break complicated topics down into an understandable level while still keeping the information actionable enough the students will actually be able to use it.

In this episode, we talk about his love for teaching and his business, but we also learn how he discovered how important mindset is for entrepreneurs to be successful. Today, we talk about limiting beliefs, doubt, self-sabotage, and all of the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects that need to be in alignment to succeed. Along with creating products and building a business around those products and more.

 Show Notes

[04:53] When James was in school if he learned something he was passionate about, he immediately wanted to share it with others. [05:47] James first online business was an online bartending school. He would learn something and then teach it. [06:24] James is most known for teaching You Tube and video marketing. [06:50] He also went to film school, so this powerful medium was a great subject.

[07:29] He has created over 15 products about everything video related.

[08:06] Now he focuses on how to build a business teaching on Business By Design.

[08:37] The two sides to business include the technical how-tos and the mindset.

[12:22] How our conscious awareness is like a flashlight and we see a limited view.

[12:55] As we go through life, we tend to stop moving the flashlight around. This leads to filtering outside information.

[13:37] Looking for confirmation of what we already know or being willing to broaden our information.

[14:24] The shadow side to mastery.

[17:32] How awareness is the most important part of being coachable.

[19:43] The importance of intuition when making decisions.

[21:15] Coachability is about trying stuff on and then deciding to buy it.

[22:38] Having attachment for your own advice as a teacher.

[28:05] Challenging someone to be coachable is a great motivator for action.

[28:45] Distinctions between a coach and a teacher. A teacher is a teacher and coach is both.

[30:19] Blindspots are the things we don't know even exists. A coach can help identify the blind spots and suggest minor adjustments.

[32:37] How the transformation is in the transaction.

[36:35] How it is not bad to feel pressure to create an amazing product that adds value and more.

[41:14] Teaching is the transference of knowledge, but a coaching enables you to put that knowledge into practice through experience and action.

[43:49] People can be transformed through a launch without buying.

[45:41] Leaving an impact either way.

[47:07] How discoveries and breakthroughs come through action and experience. [47:39] Having an absolute commitment and supporting a breakthrough year.

[49:18] Seeing each client as perfect. Nothing is wrong or broken.

[50:16] Speak to the higher part that is flawless and not mired in self-doubt.

[51:21] Detaching from yourself and your role. Don't say things to sound smart of look good. It's OK to say you don't know. [52:32] As a coach, never rob your students of a lesson.

[53:27] Our answers have way less impact than if the student comes up with it themselves. Ask better questions.

[55:55] Entrepreneurs do not need permission unless you give it to yourself in the form of validation.

[01:02:16] Being a coach is about getting things more clear than they were before. Clarity, action, results.
