Welcome back to episode #276! I’m so excited for this episode because I am sharing 10 things I wish I would have known when I got started. There could have been WAY more than 10, but I really tried to give you ones you haven’t heard of before, things that could really save you from making a mistake or two that you don't need to make.
“Don’t diversify until you have mastered the first thing…” At minute 3:20 I’m diving into the 10 things I wish which is starting with focusing on one thing. I want to do everything all the time. Sound like anyone you know? Find out what I had to learn the hard way.
“I was paying, but I wasn’t selling...” At 8:32 we all know there are levels of every contractor we hire. I’m sharing about the software and contractors we see other people using that makes us think we need it too. Hear why it is SO important to be real and connected to your people.
“I was buying online course after online course…” At minute 14:24 I was so desperately looking for a private coach or a high level mastermind, but I got it in my head that people didn’t do that anymore because they didn’t need to. I’m giving my insights into mastermind groups and why you shouldn’t rush and try to be an overnight success.
“Don’t just do all the things without a strategy...” At 21:20 I’m sharing how I wasn’t clear on my message and I definitely didn’t have a clear customer journey for my customers to take. I’m sharing why I’m in my comfort zone when I’m at home in Wisconsin but really need to stretch myself.
“I heard it over and over and over…” At minute 25:00 I’m sharing how we say we know things but if you absolutely knew how important it was, you would take action. Hear why you need to focus on profit, not gross. I’m sharing some lessons learned from people that answered a few polls inside of a few Facebook groups.
