172 : [AudioBlog] How to build a Million Dollar Network

Podcast cover
Read more

Click for Shownotes

I Wanted a Million Dollars and Instead Got a Million Dollar Network

Recently I had the honor of interviewing Racheal Cook for The Biz Chix Podcast and we had a very real and at times raw conversation on what it is like to be a Work at Home Mom, run a business, a home and take care of our children.  I felt immediately like I had connected with a kindred spirit across the country (a cool bi-product of this job and not the first time I have bonded quickly and deeply with a guest).

When Racheal asked if I would participate in her Biz That Loves You Back blog tour, I couldn’t raise my virtual hand quick enough. In fact, be sure you check out Claire Pelletreau (http://clairepells.com/biz-love-blog-tour/) who posted yesterday and Kimberly Riggins( kimberlyriggins.com) tomorrow.

Back when I “only” had one business and two kids in 2013, I got the idea to launch a podcast. There are many reasons I wanted to become a podcaster. 

Podcasting fulfills a childhood dream I have of being a talk radio host.  I also wanted to give voice to more women’s stories and create the kind of content I was yearning to hear.  Of the male hosted podcasts I was listening to at the time, women were only being interviewed about 10% of the time.  When they were interviewed, the young, single male host didn’t ask the types of questions I wanted to have answered.  

But if I am honest, really honest with you, the truth is I thought I could do all the above and have another big bonus.  I thought I could make piles of money too. There are a few podcasters out there right now that are killing it and making multi-six figure and 7 figure incomes from their podcast

So fast forward from my launch Januay 2014 to now April 2015. Am I rolling around in piles of cash simply from launching a podcast.

No.

I am not a millionaire.  I am not making a six figure income from my podcast.  In fact, I am not even making a 5 figure income from my podcast and the BizChix brand. It took me a full year to even start monetizing in any way.

I could have monetized a lot sooner, but Baby Jett changed my focus.  Towards the end of my pregnancy the time was right to test the monetization waters.  But I was too tired and trying to prepare for a maternity leave from interviewing.  Once Jett arrived, I didn’t feel like hustling to work with clients or build a digital product when I had a newborn to hold and cuddle.

At the beginning of this year, I began working with the Biz Chix community. I have launched two paid masterminds, engaged a few coaching clients and  even experimented with sponsorship of the show for one month.  I decided not to continue with sponsorship for now because I want to promote programs I am offering through Biz Chix or have my other biz ScheduleMAX.com sponsor the episode.

While I have certainly been disappointed with the slow build to monetization, podcasting has had a surprising effect on my life. I haven’t built a million dollar bank account, but I have built a million dollar network.

The show has expanded the depth and breadth of my network.  I have been able to interview women that I would never meet otherwise or even have access to.  A special report is built during interviews and almost every time the guest ends our call by asking me to let them know how they can support me in the future.  I have called in a few of those favors with winning results.

The podcasting community is another huge bonus.  I have never been part of a more supportive or collaborative community and the women in this community are the best. I have new besties all across the country that completely understand my business and my life in ways many local friends can’t.

The best thing I did relating to the Biz Chix brand was launch a private Facebook group for my audience that is filled with female entrepreneurs and women that want to be entrepreneurs.  I get to see relationships developing and women doing business with each other all as a result of the podcast.  

This year I have learned something about myself that has come as a big surprise. I really want to teach more people how to podcast.  It is so powerful to get your voice out there and I want to help more people do that, especially bloggers.  Bloggers already have an amazing pool of content and adding audio to their blogs is really a no brainer.  It also allows their audience to connect with them on a more intimate level.

Podcast listeners tend to listen through their smartphones using earbuds and you can’t get much closer to someone’s heart,mind and soul.

I think the more senses we can connect with people in this New Media age, the better.  We all really need to be considering blogging, podcasting and video in that marketing toolbelt I mentioned before.  Video is my next frontier! 

So in answer to my new friend Racheal’s question on how is my business loving me back?  Right now BizChix isn’t throwing piles of cash at me, but there is huge potential in the foundation I built so far. Podcasting gave me access to an industry full of new friends, a professional network beyond my wildest dreams and even more importantly the chance to fulfill a childhood dream of being behind the mic.

The Truth About Podcasting

I’m the member of a number of private Facebook communities for Podcasters and almost everyone is trying to figure out the same thing.  How do I make money from this thing and why don’t I have enough downloads yet to warrant sponsorship? It is an ongoing conversation that I see repeated day after day in group after group.

The truth is that podcasts very rarely get sponsored.  They don’t have the kinds of download numbers to warrant an interest from big brands.  Some clever niche podcasters have been able to sell advertisers on the benefits of direct access to he exact customers they are looking for.  This takes a lot of creativity and effort and it is being done by a small group of people.

What podcasts are best suited for is as one tool in your Marketing tool belt.  Podcasts are one of the most intimate mediums out there.  I have released 171 episodes so far and there are some people out there who have listened to every single one.  Imagine being in someone’s ears for 171 hours  That is like someone listening to me 24/7 for one week straight.  It is mind blowing.

This kind of connection allows podcasters to build a tribe of followers that know, like and trust them. I run a private Facebook group for my community filled with female entrepreurs and women who want to be entrepreneurs.  It is very engaged and one of my favorite places to be.

I launched a Mastermind for my community and 1/1 coaching program in early 2015 as my first means of monetizing.  It has been so rewarding to start to work with my community and provide value.

While I was hoping to contribute and provide to my Mastermind, they ended up providing me great feedback as well.  While I provide a ton of business value, I have a skill and industry knowledge that a lot of people don’t have.

I know how to podcast.  I understand how to launch, build and monetize this medium.  I am passionate about podcasting and they want to learn more about it from me.

None of the podcasts I was listening to had hosts I could relate to.  My favorite at the time was Entrpereneur on Fire, hosted by John Lee Dumas. But Johns life is not at all like mine.  He is a 30 year old single guy with no kids who works 80+ hours a week and has kept up that pace for over 2 years now.  

I thought it would be cool to interview women like me. Women balancing work and kids. There were questions I wanted to ask them. How do you do it? What is the secret? Do you have balance?  What I found is that most of them have the same answer as me.  I am trying to figure it out day by day.  Some days I feel I have perfect balance, while other days life feel a bit out of control.  The secret sauce or holy grail of balance does not exist.

My other motivation for starting a podcast was to create another income stream for my family.

233: [new series] 10 Tips to Monetize and Grow Your Biz #bizchixmonetize

Podcast cover
Read more
We are going to spend the next 10+ episodes talking about all the issues related to MONEY, your mindset around money, getting paid, setting prices, raising rates, finding more customers and how to organize your business finances.

I am creating this series in response to the emails you send me, the work I do with clients, and the conversations I see in our Private Facebook group.

Today I am going to do an overview of some topics that we are going to dig deeper on throughout this series.
  1. Set realistic expectations. It takes years to build a business that can support your family.

  2. Keep your business and personal finances separate - it is hard to know how you are doing if it is all co-mingled.

  3. Decide on an amount to invest in your business and put it in a separate business account (see #2).

  4. Understand your attitude around money and building wealth. What is your family history around money? What money stories from your past are affecting you today?

  5.  You don’t know what is going on in someone else’s bank account. Realize what you perceive about others, may not be the reality of the situation. Keep your eye on your own business. Don’t get distracted. (For more on this listen to The Six Lies of Six Figure Launches.)

  6. The higher income you earn in your day job, the harder it is to transition to entrepreneurship. The easiest path to entrepreneurship is to leverage what you are already doing in a consultant role.

  1. You need to network with others. No matter what your business is, you have to get out and meet people. Go to local events, attend conferences, have lunch, meet for coffee. Go broad, then go deep.

  2. Stop spending money on courses and coaches and tools.  You already know enough.

  3. You’re going to fail along the way. Keep trying, keep iterating. Don’t give up.

  4. Focus the bulk of your time on bringing money into your business. That means selling. That means having something to offer. Make sure what you think you want to do aligns with what people really need and are willing to pay for (validate this through 1/1 work). (Listen to The Truth About Sales and Selling and Are You Solving a Big Enough Problem? for more on this topic).

Now go make some money!

397: The Power of Forgiveness with Brenda Reiss

Podcast cover
Read more

If you are human, then you can likely benefit from learning more about radical forgiveness. Why are we talking about forgiveness on a business podcast? Well, over the last six years, I have had the honor of working one on one or in group programs with hundreds of female entrepreneurs, and what I have learned is that our personal issues bleed into our business and vice versa.

The holiday season is upon us and I invited my client and forgiveness coach, Brenda Reiss, to share more about how we can navigate difficult situations we may encounter as we are around extended family, in-laws, office parties, etc.

385: How to Create a Belonging Environment with Traci Baxley [High Performing Women Series]

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you want to create a business where people feel like they belong and can bring their full authentic self? Do you want to foster an inclusive environment where people feel like their voices are being heard and valued? Do you want to attract the best talent and build a team of high performers?

Diversity does not just mean race. It is so much more layered in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, age differences, disability, sexuality, religion. 

I'm thrilled to introduce you to my guest and BizChix Live Speaker Traci Baxley. Together, we talk about the need to belong, no matter your race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexuality or cultural background and WHY this topic is essential for us to consider as business owners and leaders.

Traci is the Founder and CEO of BrownSchooling, a unique consulting company that supports educators and business leaders in developing inclusive practices in classrooms and workspaces.

Traci is a TEDx Speaker and sought after consultant by top companies and schools. She has worked with traditionally marginalized groups for almost three decades. 

Research shows that when you hire people from diverse backgrounds, you’re more likely to cultivate a workplace where creative ideas flourish. Traci shares statistics about how a diverse workforce significantly impacts the bottom line.

A diverse team that can consider and integrate different perspectives and points of view is a team where creativity rules and innovative ideas, solutions and products are developed.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How to create a workplace environment where everyone on the team feels like their voices are heard and valued
  • The struggles that different races face in society and the importance of educating children and “social justice parenting”
  • What CEOs can do to attract more diversity into their businesses
  • Understanding your own implicit biases

384: How to Create a High Performing Team at Home and at Work

Podcast cover
Read more

Having high performers work with me at home and in the business has allowed me to have more time and a greater impact, but it wasn't always like this! I have made several hiring mistakes over the years and my hope is that this episode will help you surround yourself with a high performing team that allows you to stay focused on the work and home responsibilities that are most fulfilling to you.

Have you ever wondered why your team isn’t as outstanding as you’d hoped for? Creating a high performing team is something that every CEO wants. But not every leader knows how to create a workplace environment where collaboration comes naturally and everyone brings each other up, smashes goals and works together to drive the business forward.

When your team isn’t performing to your standards, it can often feel like you’re tolerating too much. This isn’t the ‘dream team’ you hoped for when you launched your business and you don’t have to put up with it. If you’re fed up with mediocre team members and want to learn how to build a high performing team that you can be proud of, tune into this special episode with Shelli Warren!

This week Shelli shares her unique twist on the five key factors of creating a high performing team. As Shelli points out in the podcast, once you know how to create a high performing team, you’ll never settle for anything less again.

382: LinkedIn Next Level with Louise Brogan

Podcast cover
Read more

Once you have your LinkedIn profile set up, what do you do there?If you really want to take your LinkedIn game to the next level, you need to create an effective LinkedIn strategy catered to your business and what you want to get out of the platform.

Today I am joined by Linked In expert, speaker and podcaster Louise Brogan of Social Bee NI we are talking how to create a posting strategy, the power of showcasing your thought leadership on LinkedIn, what to do after you publish an article to get more engagement, how to repurpose content from other sources on linked in, the difference between connections and followers and features of LinkedIn Premium and a really cool way to use the LinkedIn app to find others at the same event that are in and out of your network.

Connect with Louise on LinkedIn

Connect with Natalie on LinkedIn

With over 645+ million users, LinkedIn takes the crown as the world’s largest professional network. The ability to tap into a pool of potential clients and make connections that can help grow your brand is where the true power of LinkedIn lies.

This isn’t the first time Louise has been on the podcast. A year ago, she joined me for an on-air coaching session, where we talked about whether or not it was a smart business move to specialize on one platform. 12 months later and her decision to niche down and focus solely on LinkedIn has proved to be one of the best decisions she ever made.

Bonus Tips!

Louise shared so many amazing LinkedIn tips with us including how to get started with LinkedIn Live. Because LinkedIn Live is still in the initial testing stages, the feature isn’t available to all LinkedIn members. If you want access to the LinkedIn Live feature, you need to apply to become a live video broadcaster via a simple application process.

A great way to gain more followers without actually connecting with anyone is to switch your LinkedIn profile button from ‘connect’ to ‘follow.’

To do this, login to the LinkedIn app on your phone and tap on your profile. Select “Settings & Privacy” and then click on “Followers.” You’ll see a section beneath it that says, “Make follow primary,” and all you have to do is choose “yes” and your profile’s primary button will become “Follow” rather than “Connect.”
