We covered sooo much awesomeness in this episode. Asking the right questions, using leverage and figuring out what motivates you – plus a rant or two for extra spice. Listen now.
Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:
- Question: “How can I get started?” Answer: Don’t ever ask that question again. Hate to break it to you, but there is such a thing as a terrible question. Carolynn and I get a little ranty on this one.
- What kind of subliminal message are you sending to your prospective clients with your pricing?
(hint: it’s OK to be Neiman Marcus, and it’s OK to be Dollar General. But you better know WHICH on you are).
- Are you investing in your business? If your answer is “no,” allow us to offer you a quick mindset adjustment on the incalculable value of spending both time AND money on your skills.
- Counterintuitive advice: why Carolynn insists (and I agree!) that having a day job can help you be a much better entrepreneur.
- How to distinguish legit mentors and coaches from BS artists: Carolynn’s simple test for figuring out who’s a true expert and who’s just flexing on IG.
This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!
