The Juggle Is Real
Get Your Sales Funnel Basics Sorted
I love a good sales funnel.
I enjoy the strategy that goes into crafting a profitable and solid sales funnel, looking at the journey my customer is going to take with my business through this funnel.
It’s one of my favorite things to create in my business.
But I know that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
It can be overwhelming, confusing and a daunting prospect for so many coaches and consultants.
It’s an area that I get questions about all the time.

You need a list!
I bet you’ve heard that more than once.
When I first started in business I certainly did.

It was definitely a pretty big motivator when I kicked off my business just over 3 years ago.
Unfortunately though, at some point reality sets in and you may discover that you’re now busier than ever. You can barely find the time to drink your coffee before it gets cold, or eat a quick meal…
Let alone enjoy this new business.
3 Reasons To Love Unsubscribes
If you are fairly new to email marketing, or even if you’ve been at it for a bit but still have a relatively small list, you may feel a sense of dread when you log in to your CRM and see your list numbers have dropped because you’ve had some unsubscribes.
You might get a sinking feeling in your gut and start to wonder what you’ve done wrong, or if it’s even worth having a list of people if some are going to unsubscribe.
A lot of us have been there. Disappointed by the unsubscribes and scrambli…
The Productive Solopreneur Series | My 3 Tips to Deal With The Entrepreneurial Rollercoaster
Let me ask you something…
How has your journey as an entrepreneur played out so far? As a graph what does it look like?
Is it a horizontal line heading straight to the sky, a smooth journey from not being an entrepreneur to being a super successful entrepreneur with not a single hiccup?
Does it look something like a three-year-old has grabbed a crayon and gone crazy on a piece of paper?
My journey definitely looks like something my little guy, Noah, does at daycare…

But this is no myth.
The flow state is a very real psychological phenomenon that has been written about by countless psychologists and neuroscientists. And it is something that anyone can tap into if they want to get more …

The Productive Solopreneur Series | How To Stop Thinking About Work
A term that every entrepreneur, solopreneur, and wantrepreneur (yep that’s a term) should know about is The Zeigarnik Effect.
But I’m going to guess that you’re not familiar with this term. Actually, I suspect that you’ve probably never heard of it.
