What is perfectionism? Perfectionism is the refusal to accept any standard short of being absolutely flawless. A business owner looking for perfection may work with the mantra of a project that is entirely perfect, and all put together before launching their product or service off the ground.

Overachieving as a Form of Perfectionism

I know clients who always want to get another certification. They think if they attain more certifications, they will have more credibility and will be perfect. New entrepreneurs want to know if they need an MBA or certification to start. Do I need to go back to school? That's perfectionism.

Skill Sets You Need to Succeed

You could be horrible at what you do, but if you know how to market and sell, you'll still make money. I don't recommend that because that's super unethical, but it's the truth. Focus on learning to build your sales and marketing toolbox. Finding out how to build relationships and creatively market your product or service to create and publish content is a better use of your time than spinning in circles and not making a decision to move forward.

Listen in to find out:

  • The many different ways perfectionism can show up in your life and business
  • Why you haven’t posted your social media
  • How perfectionism can stop you from making money
  • The role perfectionism has in blocking your creativity
  • How creativity can be toxic to moving you forward

Part II of my conversation with Shelton Marchman.

We dive into business credit essentials and why they are so vital if you’re looking to build your business. Many people start their business without a tax ID number or setting up an LLC.

In this episode, find out what elements are essential to have in your business, why you should have a separate business entity, and how having a Sole Proprietorship can set you up for personal disaster.

Shelton explains how you can obtain an EIN or tax ID number for your business, how you can set up your business income and assets as a different entity than your personal assets. He and I talk about examples of companies who have walked through the credit process correctly and others who have made mistakes with their credit.

We will also dive into how you can achieve credit terms with your vendors, to build up your credit with vendors and eventually move your credit score higher up the scale. I’ll also talk to Shelton about the types of credit cards you can access with your business.

Choose a Business Card with Travel Perks

When choosing a business credit card, look for cards that can earn you points with travel perks such as Chase Venture or American Express, who have tremendous perks for small business owners. Make sure to have your credit card account under your business name, not your personal name. This way, you're building credit for your business, not your personal credit.

Listen in to find out:

  • How to create an EIN number for your company
  • Why your business needs a company address and website,
  • The importance of having an email address and phone number associated only with your company
  • Why you shouldn’t elect a sole proprietorship for your business
  • Working with vendors for payment terms
  • How you can secure a line of credit for your business

Shelton Marchman is author of Give Me Credit for Trying. He has been a business credit expert for the last two decades. Today we are going to chat into how to use debt to leverage your business correctly.

 

Consumer debt and business debt are two different worlds. You don't want consumer debt as this type of debt isn't useful. You definitely want to pay down consumer debt and get yourself out of that unfortunate situation.

 

When you want to start building wealth, your views on credit need to change. If you're going to wait on cash or plan to have cash on hand for everything, it's going to take you a lifetime to get results. As Shelton brings up in this article, he doesn't know of one business that's never had to leverage credit. When you use your credit, remember to learn to use it properly.

 

Entrepreneurship and Debt

 

Shelton's advice for entrepreneurs is to go into debt. "I don't know a single person who has successfully navigated entrepreneurship without taking out some debt. Honestly, if you make less than $200,000 personally, I don't know how you would navigate your entire life without having some debt. Whether it's a car, a home loan, or something like that, you know, some people think it's all cash. Debt is a tool. You don't want to be paying for that vacation you took to Cancun for the next five years. However, if you're buying something, that's going to help you to build credit, then that is a good move."



Listen in to find out:

  • The most common misbeliefs about debt
  • Why you should go into debt if you have a business
  • When you need to create a business plan
  • How to go about getting a loan for your business
  • The difference between personal debt and business debt

Michael “Coach Burt” and I talk more about thriving in a crisis economy, by starting with a driving factor some of us have experienced - it's called prey drive.

Prey drive is a drive inside of you that is typically activated by an external factor. A prey drive competition can activate a prey drive, a fear of loss, losing connection, or debate.

Your prey drive is the mindset that kicks in when you feel you are losing out on something important to you, so you go into prey drive and create a higher level of what you were going to previously present or show to others.

What Business Owners Can Do to Thrive Despite Challenges

Coach Burt advises business owners who are doubtful about the current economy. "Remove any consideration or hesitation that people are not spending money because that will prohibit them from taking action they need to take, then activate prey drive. Move to an explanation of your service, selling your system, followup, and the extraction of referrals. Next, move to the person of interest."

Coach Burt hasn't strayed from his system; he has only increased the intensity by making more phone calls, engaging at a higher level with current clients, and working better for his top 25 associations.

Listen in to find out:

  • How to turn your pain into thriving
  • Why comfort and complacency are our biggest economic villains
  • Michael’s advice for selling in an economic crisis
  • How Earth is an economic planet

My mentor, coach Michael Burt is going to discuss sales in a crisis environment.

I've joined his coaching program, and, as a result, we've got more clients, more residual income, and we were able to hire a sales team.

Your Product or Service Isn't Going to Sell Itself

When you have a powerful primary skill, there are all kinds of problems you can solve with that skill, and people compensate you for your expertise. If you can prove to another person that the small investment they put into you is going to give them a considerable return, then you're going to be able to sell something. You have to do the selling, your product or service isn't going to sell itself.

Many business owners expect either social media or the sales page of their website to do all the selling. In reality, this is just one part of the puzzle, which is what I teach in my Persuade to Profit program. You still have to talk to people and sell, mainly if you're doing high tickets, which is what my program focuses on.

Listen in to find out:

  • Who you should be selling to in this crisis economy
  • Know that you can sell high dollar ticket items
  • The two principles you need for successful sales
  • Why you should follow-up like crazy

I'm never comfortable, but look, part of the mistake I see in many business people, and they've admitted it, they got comfortable when their company was excellent.

I saw many business owners online who could be making a killing right now. They could have started pivoting their businesses three years ago. That's what we started doing in the event of a market correction. They'll admit, they're comfortable, they thought everything would be great. That's a lesson I have learned one too many times, the hard way. You can not allow yourself to get comfortable.

This isn't just coping. This is a conversation for those that are hunters. When we talk about people getting comfortable, here's what I see from the small business, medium, large enterprise. Our sweet spot we work with is typically a minimum of eight to 10 million or one to 300 employees. Even in those companies, people are comfortable, and it's because they're not hunters. We've gotten too comfortable in just having leads fed to us or having a business.

A hunter mentality starts at the top. As a CEO, I'm a hunter, I'm looking for where I can hunt. Our next remarket will be hit and run. We're going to see the difference between the marketers and the salespeople because the salespeople are going to win.


Listen in to find out:

• Why you should be a hunter
• How hunters will win in the new market
• What to do when deals aren’t coming in to your business
• Why you shouldn’t let the COVID storm take you out
• Why everyone has something to sell
• Why you should have a fiscally fit company
• How others got comfortable when business was good and how this is coming back to bite them financially

LaDawn Townsend and I chat about the characteristics you need to move forward on her show. These attributes and actions are vital to you, the entrepreneur, so let's jump into my talk with LaDawn Townsend.

LaDawn Townsend is the CEO and founder of the Voss group, and its mission is to grow your bottom line. Voss is a strategic advisory firm based in the United States with a large footprint internationally, currently expanding to the Middle East and Asia. "I deliver solutions to companies saving them over a million dollars in payroll, increasing revenue by 25% within four months, improving shipping and logistics by 42%.

Should You Sell Your Business? Recession Compared to Pandemic

LaDawn answers this question "What do I do? Your time to pivot is now. This is your time to get off your bum and make your mark in your industry."

The last recession of 2008 was not the same situation we have today. This was the same old bullshit of sorry financial markets and millennials being hit with one crisis after another. I'm wondering why we are still having the same damn conversation ten years later? Did no one learn their damn lesson?

LaDawn and I were the middlemen between candidates and fortune 500 companies. I saw people get laid off, so in 2013 I quit. I figured I might as well do my own thing because I saw the business world starting to shift and move online. Now people are vying to get online. Six months later, I launched my book with Amazon's bestseller status and ended up doing content marketing for the likes of Discover, Wells Fargo, Capital One, and TransUnion. I became known as a financial expert. I'm a minority woman; statistically I should not be where I am if you pay attention to statistics, which I don't do. Are the statistics, right? Only if you let them be right.

Listen in to find out:

  • Our backstories and how we defied the odds to become six-figure minority business women
  • How we both shifted our business focus three years ago
  • Five tips on how you can take your business to the next level

Part 2 of my discussion with Chief Financial Officer, Carla Titus of Wealth & Worth Within. We dig into the topic of mindset.

Here are the top money mindsets or beliefs that have helped me throughout the last crisis and this crisis to make sure business is always thriving.

Struggle Is An Opportunity to Overcome

Instead of seeing the struggle as an opportunity to overcome, take action, and understand that making money is not as hard as people think. Once you start prioritizing and dedicating your time to the next step in your business, you're going to realize that money is coming without reworking and reselling.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • The importance of scaling your business
  • Money mindset that runs true no matter what the financial situation
  • Why money moves quickly
  • Scenario and crisis planning for your business
  • Why people are looking for guidance
  • How you can have a different perspective on your business
  • When you should question your business practices
  • Why you should always be selling to generate profit for your business
  • The importance of team building
  • How systems can make you more visible in your business
May 5, 2020

What I did not realize during the last recession, was that I was going in blind and putting one foot in front of the other. People were looking for information on money, and I was providing them this service, and that led to income.

That is how we create value. People are ready to pay to either fast track a solution or learn something that they don't want to figure on their own. There are free resources on the internet, however; it might take you a hundred hours to learn a new skill someone could easily teach you in a few days. You'd rather pay someone who can help you to figure out your issue quickly or coach you in the right direction. You can also purchase an efficient system they have created that you can directly implement and see results. Opportunities show up in many different ways.

Listen in to find out:

  • My personal business journey
  • Why I pivoted my business
  • Why adding value-added content is more important now than ever
  • How you can get visible
  • How I generate money for my client’s business in a recession

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!

Best Birthday Lessons I've Learned Since Last Year

I started with a birthday post of one lesson I learned for each year of my life. At 25, I gave 25 lessons I've learned in 25 years. I'm 32 now, and to list 32 lessons would be too much for one blog. To distill my lessons, I'm going to give you the main lessons that I've learned since my last birthday.

My biggest lessons are around the team and being a leader. For some reason, this concept seemed different in my mind. When I decided to train my team, I had to learn how to allow people to step up for me.

I never expected people to step up, to be honest. I never expected people would want to go hard for me like that. When people started stepping up, I was resisting that someone would want to go hard for me.

I've always felt like I had to do everything alone, albeit rugged individualism. After ten years of building a company on my own, I had to allow people to step up for me, and at the beginning of 2019, it was tough. There were lots of things that didn't work out. That started shifting on March 31st of 2019. After that first quarter, delegating started to shift, and we began to see some progress.

Listen in to find out:

  • Why I’ve decided to delegate work and let others step up
  • How I’ve let other team members to step into sales roles
  • Why I am OK with enjoying my work
  • The importance of being nicer to me
  • Why I should go for my goals - even if I’m not sure how I’ll get there!

Many of my clients over-complicate their situation and create the small dollar items first because they don’t want to invest in the bigger dollar items as they are afraid they will  lose money. I'm going to tell you what's worse than losing money, losing time. Most likely you are already wasting both time and money by not investing in your high dollar product.

 

Many of you may be under the assumption that you need to have money sitting in your bank account in cash before you can make an investment.  Entrepreneurs usually use a credit card and then hustle their way to go find the money to pay off their debt. They also could have made a commitment without knowing how they were going to pay off their debt, but decided to do a payment plan and hustled until their plan worked out.

 

You also block your abundance and financial blessings because you’re not investing in help because you don't believe in your ability to make money. Your financial models are not set up to make yourself money. Your focus is in all the wrong places and your money has been allotted in all the wrong places.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • Why you don’t need thousands of dollars lying around your bank account to go big with your business
  • What role the universe will play in your plan to move forward
  • When you have to make a leap of faith in investing in yourself
  • Why you like to stay small 
  • What you can do for yourself to pivot and change your financial mindset

We hear, "Another day, another dollar" and "An honest day's work for an honest day's pay.". We hear these quotes from a young age from our parents and others. In addition to these money beliefs, women have an added layer of drawback, which is known as perfectionism. We have to have everything perfectly figured out before we're able to create the abundance we desire in our lives.

I know this all too well as I'm recovering under earner. The struggle to escape this mindset and create a new journey for me correlates to this example. The scary part is, when I'm not paying attention, they come up and start destroying my business and attempt to sabotage me.

Listen to my story about how I fell into the trapped mindset of doing more work and not focusing on the right path. Learn how I realized this was happening and what I did to break out of my old mindset haunting me and back into an abundance mindset.

Listen in to find out:

  • Why not having enough money isn’t your issue
  • How you can relapse out of an abundance mindset
  • When you should reflect on your actions and reevaluate your goals
  • What you can do to get yourself back into an abundance mindset
  • Why you should figure out your next step and learn what’s important in your business

Mar 10, 2020

Picking up from the last episode, this episode starts off with how you can change your mindset to avoid blocking your money blessings.

If you're not making enough money to survive, then you're worried about your own survival and the 24 inches around you. When this occurs, you can't self-actualize or have the ability to come up with creative solutions to problems. You'll be extremely focused on your lack of money. I understand this is a societal influence we have going on right now. Our society and culture have really done a number on us in terms of how people see the money. The result is we aren't having positive conversations about money. Allow yourself to want money, give yourself that permission because it's okay to want money.

It's all about realizing that all the power is in your hands. You can start today to get your financial life together, and you don't have to wait for somebody else to tell you to start. Regardless of your past experiences and choices with money, you can start making different choices. Start making different choices to obtain your financial goals.

Change is hard. It's easier to blame other people for why you're broke or say that your family was broke, so I'm going to be broke. I mean, I guess we're all just screwed, and that's just the way that it is. I'm here to tell you, that's your perception, and when you change your perception, you'll break yourself free of the negative money mindset in which you imprison yourself.

Listen to my story about the last recession. This story is good because this was when I realized that there's always somebody making money, even in a down economy. I didn't realize it at the time, but this was actually one of my first mindset lessons around cash. Find out how you can turn your negative money mindset around, why you should avoid shutting down and my story about my trip to Jamaica and what I learned as a result of that trip.

 

Listen in to find out:

  • How you shouldn’t focus on being screwed out of your money
  • Why you should stop lying to yourself about your finances
  • How society and cultural conditioning give us negative attachments to money
  • How you can block your financial blessings and what you can do to avoid this mindset
  • What you can do to change your money mindset
  • Why when you are in money survival mode, you can’t actualize or be creative
  • How people shut down when they internalize negative money beliefs and what you can do to avoid financial shutdown

My fellow female business owners, this episode is especially for you; however, this information does apply to all business owners. I want to tell you about a business epidemic that I'm seeing more and more as I coach my clients.

Many people have the same fears about money. You want to be consciously aware of your mindset about money, the conversation you're having in your head about money, and your relationship to money. If you don't start becoming aware of these critical aspects of a money mindset, you're going to see a lot of the same bullshit in your life concerning money.

We're conditioned to believe that to make money, we have to overwork ourselves to the bone to make more money. However, we all have the same 24 hours and 1410 minutes in a day. Some work really hard and make very little money, and others are working very little and making millions. There's a false sense we have about money that comes from cultural conditioning. When we operate with this type of mindset, we end up blocking our financial blessings.


Listen in to find out:

  • Examples of the three ways in which people sabotage themselves
  • The money story women typically tell themselves
  • How we view money is set by cultural conditioning
  • What you can do to change your money mindset
  • Why you should be thinking about more than just your survival
  • How people shut down when they internalize negative money beliefs

You hear so many myths and stereotypes about "rich people," and I want to debunk common myths that might be keeping you broke. To have money, you have to want money. You can't have one without the other.

I've heard people say that wealthy people are luckier or have a better life". Wealthy people receive the same 24 hours in a day that you receive, the same 1440 minutes in a day which they, and you, choose actions that can move you forward or backward. Rich people are human, the same as you and me. Others say that all rich people "are highly intelligent." Before you put that myth in your head, I can introduce you to people of average intelligence who are multimillionaires.

There are obscene amounts of money on the planet, and you have to learn how to get some for yourself and if you want to get to a point where you have money, you have to check your judgments at the door.

Listen in to find out:
Common rich people myths people believe that are not true
How people sabotage themselves with negative self-talk about money
How I grew my business and overcame my own emotional obstacles about money
Challenges associated with moving towards your next level of wealth
Why rich people are rich
The mindset you need in order to become wealthy

The only reason my company doubled in 2018, and exponentially grew in 2019, is because I am disciplined and I am focused. I know what I want, and I go after it, period.

Now, I've made no secret of the fact that I'm in the middle of scaling my company, and I'm not enjoying the process. There have been several challenges along the way, but I know it's going to get me to where I want to go. So I have the passion, and the desire, and the faith to see what I want and see the vision in my mind. I have the purpose, the discipline, and the focus to do whatever the hell it is I have to do to get there, and I do it all with a sense of urgency.

Ready for a real game changer in your life? In this episode, I'm going to share with you a framework that came to me in a meditation. I was meditating on focus and this framework showed up in a meditation. I've named the framework PDF Squared. PDF Squared, cause there's two parts to this framework. I've started using this framework in my own life when I'm not living up to my potential.

  • If you’re practicing the Law of Polarity
  • How to Use PDF Squared Framework to achieve your potential
  • Why you must have passion, desire and faith to achieve your goals
  • How you can work outside your comfort zone to work to your potential

Wouldn’t you love to experience personal transformation and have the end result of your transformation the ability to make more money and have more freedom?

Take Personal Responsibility For Your Choices

That's right, I'm starting with you first.  

Are there bad coaches out there? Yes, some unskilled people talk and don't deliver in every profession. Then there are people who are looking to scam vulnerable people. I believe in love and light, but I am also a realist. One of my teachers says, "Know the truth, but respect the illusion." The illusion is you got a whole lot of narcissists out there taking advantage of people with very low self-esteem, and it's nothing new.

Your key to finding a good coach is to make sure you don't get scammed. To avoid getting scammed to the best of your ability, you must first start with you and your responsibility in choosing a coach.

Listen in to find out:

  • Why you have to do the work to make your dreams a reality
  • When you should take responsibility when your choice of coach doesn’t work out
  • When you shouldn’t join a program or pay for a coach
  • Why you should be passionate about the line of work you choose for yourself
  • Why you shouldn’t make a decision based on fear
  • How to avoid money drama
  • Why you should read the fine print of the terms of agreement before you sign on the dotted line

Do You Have Money Trauma?

Even if you grew up in the most wonderful household, all you had to do was walk outside the door, and you'd already start getting hit by other people's trauma about money. I often hear people beating themselves up about money because they feel they should have had their finances together before they decided to get them together with an "I should have known better" attitude. Honestly, how are you supposed to know better if no one ever taught you to manage your money any better?

Let’s get into this New Year by changing your mindset about making money. Remember, this is a process and a new habit to form. If you’re going to make money, you have to think like a person who is making money and throw out the old habits and beliefs around money you’ve been surrounding yourself with previously. Remember, only YOU can decide to make money. When you do, you take back financial control of your life and start looking for those money-making opportunities you’ve been missing right in front of your eyes!

Listen in to find out:

  • When you should cut yourself some "Making Money" slack
  • Who needs to decide to make money?
  • How to get into your decision to make money
  • Why societal beliefs about money are holding you back from making money
  • Why others will be jealous when you get your shit together and make money
  • Did you know that making money requires work? (Duh!)
  • When you should commit to making money
