YOU'RE READY FOR THE BIG TIME, BABY. NOW, IF ONLY PEOPLE WOULD HIRE YOU!
How would it feel to be able to get potential clients on the phone who already know they want to work with you?
How would it feel to bravely put your message out into the world and actually get responses?
How would it feel to have a flawless plan of action around your promotions, marketing and content, so that people can start finding you instead of you tearing your hair out trying to track them down?
Pretty good, right? It's totally possible for you. I know because I've witnessed it over and over.
I'd like to tell you something I don't readily admit:
I am quite possibly the laziest internet marketer of all time. I don't run Facebook ads. I rarely blog. I've done one webinar in a year and a half of business. I only email my list when I'm hit with a too-hot-to-ignore inspiration fireball. So how on God's green earth do I stay in business?
Because I've got a message that my clients love. It's as simple and as complicated as that.
I've taken the marketing courses. I've read the books. I've hired the coaches. I know what works and what doesn't. But ultimately what I've found to be true is that sales success comes down to owning your own voice. Oh, I might start doing more of the online promotions stuff. But the point is, I don't have to because:
My voice is my secret to regular 5-figure months (with zero dollars spent on ads). It's my secret to invitations to collaborate with ass-kicking entrepreneurs. And it's my secret to not working on my business during my free time.
But how do you own your voice when you're not quite sure what it is?
Just like you, I crawled my way out of the corporate trenches, dollar by dollar and leap of faith by leap of faith. But the lessons I learned there made it a lot harder than it had to be. Think about it: the traditional office grind is about the bottom line. It's about being so vanilla there's no chance of offending anyone (or attracting anyone, is what I'd say to that). It's about playing it safe and getting everything approved by the management team. It's about wearing down your sense of self and obeying the office dress code.
IT'S NO WONDER YOU'RE STRUGGLING TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE.
But that stops now, tiger. You've got a whole lot of soul, and you are FAR from boring. So let's dust you off and sprinkle some gold on that messaging of yours, so you can go forth into the world and make money by being your true blue you.
