Okay, so I just listened to the Side Hustle Epidemic episode and I can't thank you both enough for collecting this data!! I think you're totally right - the info out there is more focused on "the gig economy" rather than people starting a legit business that they want to become their full-time job - and I found the insights you shared FASCINATING! Great episode!!!!!

Rank #2: 014: Going from 0 to 272k Blog Readers

Podcast cover

Today we’re getting real with blogging. For a lot of people, blogging is not their favorite thing. Perhaps you don’t like it either. That is A-okay. We are going to talk to you about why it is important, how it has been super incremental to our personal growth, and our business growth and some hints and tips for you to make it a little bit easier on yourself so maybe you can enjoy it a little bit more.

People get caught up on wanting to see quick results. Like anything else, they think blogging is the quick way to see financial gain. However, blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. Blogging does not even look like it used to look even five or 10 years ago. It’s an entirely different strategy with an entirely different marketing game plan, and in order to get paid from your blog, you have to have a different mindset. This mindset is that blogging is 100%, straight up, no joke a long-term game. So if you are looking for some guidance and motivation to grow your blog, then this is the episode for you!

For part one of Our Journey to Facebook Ads, we are diving into all the creative nooks and crannies of Facebook ads. Here we look at specific ads we ran and how they performed to ultimately answer the fundamental question of: Are Facebook ads worth it? Today, we’re looking at what worked specifically for our campaigns; what types of Facebook ads performed better for us (video or graphic), targeting cold audiences versus establishing warm audiences and tons of tricks and tips to maximize your Facebook ad spend.

We went from knowing zilch about Facebook ads to knowing so much that we had to break this episode into two parts. If you are someone who is easily freaked by Facebook ads, don’t be, because, after this episode, you’ll realize it’s way easier than it seems and worth every darn penny! But before you even start running your ads let’s take a look at a few of the things you need to establish first.

Rank #8: 036: We Love Squarespace: Here's Why We'll Never Leave This Platform

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, we’re talking about one of our favorite systems, Squarespace, and why it is our favorite web platform, all of our favorite features, and why we have adamantly insisted on staying on Squarespace despite the option to leave multiple times at this point. Now, if you are using another platform, we are not here to shame you and judge you for that, and we are certainly not going to tell you that WordPress is wrong and that it will ruin your life. So if you are happy where you are and you are getting great results then maybe this episode is not for you.

However, if you are frustrated with where you are right now and are thinking about leaving or you haven’t even started your website yet, then this might break down some options for you and let you know where we stand. This will be our judgment free zone and although we are completely biased, we will not shame you. That is our objective. So if you are curious about how we started out on Squarespace and why it might be right for you, then stay tuned!

Rank #10: 295: How to Replace Your Salary by Selling Services Online with Jereshia Hawk

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome back to the show, all you biz badasses, and money queens! Today we have a great episode in store for you that you are most definitely not going to want to miss! Our guest is Jereshia Hawk and she is here to tell us about how she switched from a big corporate job to selling her services online and increasing her salary in the process! Jereshia was working on huge, high profile engineering projects when she left her job and during this first year of going solo, she managed to double her salary! Sound amazing? We think so! She has subsequently taught her strategies to hundreds of people online and helped them get going on their own road to success.

A lot of what Jereshia teaches is a little different to the majority of information that is available online. She has a focus on grassroots growth that we just love! It was such a pleasure to have her on the show and the conversation is motivating and really informative for anyone looking to get out of their day job and start their own little thing. This topic is really near and dear to our hearts as Abagail started out on her own, selling services when she quit her corporate job and so much of what Jereshia says rings true for us. For a great conversation with a massively inspiring person, be sure to get it all on The Strategy Hour!

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we are going to be talking about the 23 launch mistakes that your business can’t afford to make. But before we get started, first and foremost, we want to encourage you to get into the mindset of treating every single thing in your business like a launch. Whether that’s an Instagram post, a blog post, creating a course, new brand colors – treat it like a launch. Because if you do not treat it like a launch, it becomes one of those things that sits in your to-do list and doesn’t get done! As soon as you treat it like a launch, you will take the steps you need to in order to make it happen.

We have gone through the process of launching an obscene amount of times, and we have helped so many others do the same. Through these experiences have noticed a pattern of common mistakes made throughout the launch process, and today we want to share the top 23 mistakes we see happening in a launch. From aiming for perfection, to poor planning and promotion, or just not reaching out for support. There are small (and big) things we can do to maximize any launch and keep our sanity in the process! We believe in you and If you’re thinking about launching, you are in the process of launching, or you are just wondering how you can improve on your next launch – this episode is an absolute must!

Rank #14: 204: Goal Crusher Club - Part 1: 7 Habits for Productivity

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we dive into seven habits that we believe lead to a more productive life and a more productive business. These seven habits will ultimately help you achieve the goals and dreams you are seeking – whether those are personal or financial. You are one person, with multiple facets, and you can’t play blind to the fact that you have a life outside of work! We want to incorporate that into living a lifestyle that gets you where you want to go. These seven habits have been monitored over time in our own business. Whenever we are incredibly productive, we take a look at everything that we were doing over that time and ask, “What was a constant? What habits combined aided our productivity?”

A lot of people ask us what is it that makes us so productive, and everyone seems to be waiting for that miracle answer. But the reason why we are covering seven habits is because it is never just one thing. It’s never just one thing you do that helps you sell more, or get more people on your list, or land more clients. It is a combination of things that helps to create a successful business and a successful human being. So take a listen and learn more about the seven habits we focus on that have led to more productivity in our lives and how it can lead to more productivity in your life too.

Podcast cover

Today on the podcast we are joined by the fabulous Lauren Goldstein, CEO, and founder of Golden Key Partnership, a strategy consulting firm that helps businesses to scale smart in order to be more sustainable. There are tons to learn from her seasoned and scientifically backed up approach, so today she will be dishing out straightforward facts, particularly as it pertains to productivity and how it relates to your profit. She shares time-wasting tactics that many of us are skilled at and pulls up some new studies that illuminate what distraction does to our day. A question we often think about is what we need to be doing to move our business forward, and it can be stressful to decide which of the dozens of things to take or leave. Lauren weighs in on the matter with some simple, no-nonsense advice. 

Being overwhelmed with tasks can lead to decision fatigue, which prevents us from effectively prioritizing the tasks that are most important. Productivity and processes can make or break an entrepreneur because of burnout or be the demise of business due to revenue and profit leaks. According to the IDC, companies lose 20 to 30% in revenue every year as a result of inefficiencies. This is a staggering statistic! Therefore, we bring you this episode that is guaranteed to help you improve your productivity, so be sure to join in the conversation!

Rank #20: 336: It's Easier Than You Think to Make $100k from Your Services

Podcast cover
Read more

Today on The Strategy Hour we’re diving deeper into what exactly we mean when we say that is should be easy and fun to make $100k from your service based business, within a year. There’s a misconception that money cannot be earned without really hard work, and to an extent, this is true, especially for certain types of businesses. But you also have to be smart about it! Just to reiterate, when we say it’s easy to make six figures, we are talking about offering services like copywriting, designing and photography. And this is by doing the basic work only, aside from all the other side offerings like podcasts and training courses. 

In fact, you should keep it as simple as possible, focusing on doing one thing really well instead of doing a bunch of different things. These other ideas are not bad, but until you’ve done the one thing properly, you won’t enjoy its full benefits. We’re also guilty of this and we’ve seen many of our mentees battling with the same thing. Today we’re breaking this down in a way that we hope will help you not to fall into the trap of believing that diversifying will necessarily expand your business and make you more money. Whether you’re thinking of adding on products or offering more services, you think that the single solid service you’re offering will not get you to your financial goals.
