KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Start with what you know and build revenue through trial and error. Then focus in on the things that you are most passionate about and eliminate the ones you don't enjoy.
  • You don't need to know “how”, you just need to take action.
  • The importance of surrounding yourself with other amazing women who provide a vision for what you want to become and achieve.
  • Take yourself out of the decision of how much to charge and shift your focus to how the revenue will help you to serve your clients and your team better.
  • You have to make it really easy for people to do business with you – have 5 different marketing “oil wells” for people to find you and different ways for them to contact you.
  • Educate prospects up front: why they should hire you, what it's like to work with you, who you are as a person and what makes you an expert in your field. This will weed out the leads who are not the right type of prospects and ensure that you don't have to spend time “selling yourself” in the first meeting. Instead you should be talking about what it would be like to work with each other and if you're a good fit.
