My Journey of Resiliency:

Talking about my failures gets big fanfare as a result of a lot of bullshit in the online space. Many people faking and pretending everything is hunky-dory when their reality isn't. In life, there are going to be challenges. From working through my problems, I have become a big believer in the idea that our journey is about resiliency. Whether in business or my personal life, I have realized that my journey is about learning to become the best version of myself. In doing so, you have to take on the challenges in life. A life without challenges is a life without growth, and this is where self- mastery comes into play.

My Personal Journey Includes More Failures Than Successes

I most likely have more failures than successes from the last ten years of my life. Despite this fact, what most people see is my business making good money. And although I have some big wins, there are many mistakes and failures in between my successes. I think that's the part you guys are craving - the authenticity, the times in between my big wins.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • My first big failure I made
  • The lessons I learned from my first big failure
  • How I put lots of work into failing
  • My second big failure I made
  • What I learned from my second biggest failure
  • Why timing is very important with success
  • Reasons why you shouldn’t make a big deal over failing

Practical steps created in the process of mental transition can also be a physical transition. A couple of years into my writing and coaching career, I noticed three things. Number one it's not scalable. If I wanted to make more money, I would have to take on more clients, work more hours. Number two, I was quickly getting tired of getting close to but not quite reaching my goal income of $10,000 a month. Number three, and this is real; my hands started to hurt from all the typing.

 

Not Every Decision You Make is Going to Be a Win

 

If you've been to a point where you've thought this could never happen for me, pivot your thinking. One of the things I've noticed is the multiple numbers of projects on my desktop that have been 'failures.' One of the things I've seen is that failure does not exist. These are all lessons I've learned. You either learn how to do better or learn how to pivot, but there is no failure.

 

Learn How to Walk

 

When a kid is learning how to walk, they're going to fall, trip, wobble. This is the process of learning something new for the first time. You're going to have a bunch of ideas in business that are not going to work. However, it would be best if you learned from them; this is a part of the journey, a part of the process. Learn to love the game; love this idea of mastery, and self-discovery because that's where the gold is.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • How I transitioned from content writing to training
  • Why you should have a Plan B, C and D
  • How my mentor helped me create a way to successfully scale my business
  • Why training and mentorship moved me forward
  • Why your game shouldn’t be giving up
  • What boats you should burn and why you should burn them!

Apr 14, 2020

Five years ago, I was trying to sell coaching packages and was rejected 60 times in one month. Today, in early March, I ran my sales numbers for February and took in $62,000 in sales and contracts. I usually share this with clients who've hit walls or received a lot of "no."

One year after I launched my book, Make Money Your Honey, I'd been asked to partake in a tele-summit for eight international women's networking groups to talk about money and money mindset. There were 200 women on the teleclass, and I offered a free consultation. Attendees booked me solid for three weeks straight.

This situation was intense for me at the time because I wasn't used to being so booked out. Additionally, I was still wearing too many hats. I was also making real rookie mistakes. My pitch was good enough to be booked solid for three weeks with consultation calls, and during those consultation calls, I was pitching these women with coaching packages before I created Persuade to Profit.

Listen in to find out:

  • How I almost landed my entirely yearly salary in five days
  • Why I didn’t give up on my coaching
  • How I decided to pivot in my decision making
  • Why I didn’t force coaching as my full-time gig
  • Why I decided to stay in freelance content writing

Learning How to Create a Sustainable For-Profit Business

Elena is one of my Persuade to Profit students and owns her own social media company. Elena was finishing up her degree and had a large following on Instagram that she felt was moving upward, with many of her people reaching out for advice. She helped people give out free advice, but this wasn't a sustainable model. Elena recalls, "I remember me shifting to thinking I have something here, but what can I do? I don't know where to start."

Elena found me on Instagram and started looking at my IG stories. While looking through my stories, Elena related to my message. "I'm this person that's fearful of being worthy of earning something." She recalls getting on the webinar, joining Persuade to Profit, then coming up with a business idea to test.

Listen in to find out:

  • Why Elena decided to join Persuade to Profit
  • How Elena made $6,000 with her first client in two weeks
  • How she worked her full-time job while creating her new business
  • Why she took out a bank loan to join Persuade to Profit
  • How she set money boundaries
  • When Elena decided to pivot her mindset and decided she was worth making money and becoming rich!
