Rank #5: 329: [On Air Coaching] How to Pick a Niche with Anne Torrez

Podcast cover
Read more

Anne Torrez joins me on this on air coaching call as we continue this series on the stages of entrepreneurship. As you move from the startup stage to the validate stage, you need to define your niche, and this is exactly what Anne and I pick apart in this episode.

As a triathlon coach who is also certified as a running and cycling coach, Anne’s biggest struggle is confidently choosing between a few potential avatars (aka target markets), and then figuring out how to articulate her niche. We discuss the importance of knowing who your ideal client is, and then using the right language to them to draw them to you and trying increase your visibility to them.

I also share my expertise to answer Anne’s question of what content to produce and what medium to use to share that content as her business grows. Anne and I brainstorm on how she should build community among her ideal clients, add value and establish herself as the thought leader in the group, and come up with some great ideas.

Rank #8: 191 : [new series] Masterminds, Networking and Teams

Podcast cover
Read more

Find out why you need a Mastermind. How to use your Network to get one and why a successful Mastermind is the ultimate Team!

^^Subscribe to the Biz Chix Podcast^^It helps us get noticed my more listeners and is the best way to thank Natalie for producing this show for you!Join the Biz Chix community and get access to our Private Facebook Group for female entrepreneurs or text bizchix to 33444 to join.-----------------------------------------------NEW SERIESThis episode lays the ground work for the new podcast series on Masterminds, Networking and Teams.PARTIAL TRANSCRIPTAs I have thought about Masterminding, the connection between masterminds and networking is obvious. To form a mastermind you usually draw on the network you currently have. Being in a mastermind expands your own personal network as you gain access to the network of those in your group.A mastermind functioning on its highest level becomes a successful and powerful Team that is greater than the sum of it’s parts.As I thought about a mastermind being a successful team, my MBA education came into play. A big part of my education involved working in teams, studying successful teams and I even took an entire masters level course called Teams.There is a lot of research on what makes a successful team and what can lead to an unsuccessful team. I look forward to sharing some of that research with you during this series.I also have personally found there is a bit of an art to creating community and a mastermind is a small community so we will touch on that too.MEET MY MASTERMINDCurrently I am part of a powerful mastermind filled with 4 other unique, talented and successful women that I have actually never met in person. I am especially excited to introduce you to each of them and share why I chose them to be in my inner circle.If you have listened to every episode of The Biz Chix Podcast, you have already met 3 of them.Live Video Interviews via Blab.imThose interviews will be aired live on Blab and then will also be aired on the podcast at a later date. If you are not familiar with Blab it is a live video streaming platform that allows up to 4 people to share the screen at one time.This will be the first time I have ever conducted a live interview and the first time you have had the opportunity to interact with the guest and me as the interview unfolds. Blab allows us to see your comments and respond in real time.You can sign up by going to Blab.im and connecting with your Twitter account.Make sure you are part of the BizChix community so you get notified about the Blab with an email reminder. You can do that by clicking the yellow join the community button on this page or Text 33444 and the word bizchix (all lower case).You also can go to Blab.im/bizchixpodcast and subscribe there.YOU NEED A MASTERMINDMy goal for today was to plant the idea of you forming or joining a mastermind.Throughout this series I’m going to share how I connected with each of my mastermind members and why I thought we would be a good fit for each other. As you get to know them, you might see how they are a match for me and in turn think of who might be a match for you.Not all masterminds are successful or meant to be long term. We will dig into that as well.I’m also going to talk about paid and unpaid masterminds as the women I am introducing you to are part of my peer mastermind which is not paid, but I also offer paid masterminds to my community. Both have their merits. If you have a platform, then a paid mastermind could be a potential opportunity for you.START TODAYGrab a notebook and jot down the names of 5-10 people you would be interested in masterminding with. Reach for the stars. Don't dismiss someone because they seem out of reach. Remember you want to be in a group with people who have something you don't and/or are ahead of you in business.Join the Biz Chix Community, Get notified of our Next Blab Interview.Text 33444 and enter bizchix.
