Magic Money Spreadsheet (and real client example)

Today I'd like to share a very simple yet powerful resource with you that I use with my VIP clients. It's a weekly tracking spreadsheet. We call it the Money Magic sheet, and I am including a copy below with actual numbers on it that one of my magnificent clients tracked in July. Used with her permission, of course. There are 4 different numbers to track each week: total hours worked, intro calls, new clients, and weekly income. We track the total hours worked, as there is a tendency for entrepreneurs to work more hours than we realize. It's okay to consciously work extra hours in certain weeks when we are really on a roll. We just want to [...]

A free way to send emails for up to 2000 people on your mailing list!

A couple years ago, I joined a program where I needed a different email service to capture email addresses than my main service (for reasons that are not relevant to this conversation). With this new program, I received hundreds of new emails per year, so it was worth it to set up a parallel system. For the parallel system, I was referred to a very affordable plan with Mail Chimp. In fact, it was only $10 per month for up to 500 names. I registered, and have been paying monthly for a couple years now. Recently, I was taking a look at any money leaks in my business, and I found out that I could downgrade my plan to a [...]

My super FUN interview with Holly Chantal, about Branding!

Holly just launched her podcast called Brand Tales, featuring the stories behind the biggest brands in the coaching industry. It’s super casual and you get to learn all sorts of things about me that you didn’t know. Holly’s not afraid to ask tough questions and draw out stories that I haven’t really shared before. Plus, we play games and share quirks—it’s definitely not your typical “hum drum interview.” One of the big topics we talk about is why I decided to use my name as my company name, and how to [...]
