So, probably 6 months ago - maybe longer even - I discovered a show called The Profit on CNBC which follows host Marcus Lemonis as he helped struggling business owners turn their businesses around. I found the show by accident and it immediately took over the top spot above Shark Tank and Undercover Boss… notice a theme there?

Now, of course, I love watching and learning how businesses grow, but after watching several episodes of this show, I realized why I was learning so much. He was using a framework and repeating it to me every single time. People. Process. Product.

Here's what we cover today:

  • 4 questions you can ask yourself to discover your own framework
  • Why a framework could be just what your business/product needs
  • Examples of online business owners and educators who are using powerful and simple frameworks to market, teach, and convert people into customers
  • Template frameworks that will inspire you to create your own

You know me - I love pulling back the curtain, not just after a project or launch is finished, but literally as I’m doing something, testing something. Breaking down the how-to do it is what I do best.

So, today, I’m taking you behind the scenes of my own Instagram challenge, but decided I’d also help you create your plan for doing your own challenge.

Here’s what we cover:

  • The benefits to your business and your next launch of doing a challenge

  • All the different formats you can use to run your challenges

  • Why you can use a free challenge or event as your practice launch

  • Your before, during and after checklist

  • Ways to keep the whole production as low tech as possible

  • How and when to make an offer during a challenge

I go through a LOT in this episode and I think I may have literally sped through it quickly, so I’ve made a quick cheatsheet where I’ve even included a checklist of all the pieces I’ve created for my Instagram challenge. Use it as a starting point for your own online event.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing the exact strategies I’ve used and will use again to make sure my business survives the summer.

If you’re a mom, a dad, someone who just loves summer and finds it hard to work this time of year, you’ll love this episode.

Here’s what I have to say about it:

  • Why you can create a new consistency anytime you want (summer is great for many reasons)

  • What I consolidate to make it easier to work wherever I am

  • Why creating scheduled work shifts will help you schedule less

  • How to make sure your expectations match your output

  • Why summer revenue really goes down in the summer

You own a business. 

Maybe you have a team. Maybe you don’t.

If you’re making money from your business, you’ve got customers.

With all the challenges of running an online business the biggest one I can think of where people get in trouble and the reason why your business goes downhill are those related to your leadership skills.

So, if you have a business, plan to make money, want to build a community, and perhaps eventually have a team to help you run everything, then you are on the path to becoming a leader.

...Whether you like it or not.

That said, many people start businesses without having much practical experience in a leadership role anywhere in their life.

We’re thrown into the role of boss without a day behind the wheel ever!

So today’s episode covers some of the things you need to consider and be aware of as you set off to start, finish, deliver, launch...and take very intentional action every single day.

If you’re building an online business, then you’ve likely seen or heard that upgrading to an email marketing provider or system is a must in order start making the big bucks.

Who knows why people actually believe that, but there are some really good reasons why you might want to switch to a more customizable marketing system.

But before we talk about my switch to Infusionsoft about 2 years ago, I want to make sure you know my stance on upgrading tools...

They are often not necessary or critical until they no longer work. I never suggest an upgrade or a tool/system change unless it’s going to revolutionize or fix a part of the business. And I definitely say no to upgrades that require you to move your entire list or marketing funnel right before a launch.

So knowing this, you may think my move to Infusionsoft was unnecessary, but the change falls under the “this revolutionized” my workflow and productivity. Plus, I did it at a time when a launch wasn’t imminent.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. What led to my decision to switch email marketing providers

  2. Why Aweber no longer worked for me

  3. The main reasons I knew Infusionsoft was right for me

  4. Specific reasons and features that have kept me a customer.

Today's episode is my updated perspective on whether you should have a hard launch close date or stay open (offering your product or service indefinitely). 

You'll learn:

  • Benefits of having a hard close date
  • Benefits of keeping the doors open
  • Why having a mix of products that close or stay open could be the best thing to do for your business.
  • How to know what is right for your audience

Today's episode is all about how Fearless Launching has changed over the past 3 years...and how you might expect to update, grow, and evolve your own products and services.

In this episode I cover the 9 main areas where the products and launches have changed over time. You'll see that my first launch of the program really was a minimum viable launch from top to bottom...and that's what I encourage you to do.

Today’s episode of the podcast, I’m going to share the 4 things many people are missing from their business and need to get rolling before they are ready to start planning their launch.

Some of the topics I cover:

  • 4 things that I always come back to when I’m having an “I don’t know what to focus on moment” in my business
  • Why consistent communication is only part of the equation
  • One system that should be in place the second you put your blog or website live
  • How communication must be happening first before you get
  • Your monthly task list to make sure you're ready to launch whenever you want
  • How to avoid loading your launch workload with a ton of writing
  • How you can borrow other people’s engaged audiences, but you should never depend on that

Today's episode was recorded on my Iphone... I've been on vacation, doing a lot of mobile working...and it just happened this way! So, this week join the on the go episode and find out the Sales Strategies I love and the ones I'll never use (or not anytime soon!).

Raise your hand if you wish your email list was bigger?

I’m fairly certain almost everyone feels this way at pretty common intervals in their business. Logic tells us that a bigger list is in our favor to generate more sales, more clients, more people - more money.

And to some extent this is true. One way to increase revenue is to serve more people.

But is email the only way to reach more people?

My guest today has been in business a very short time, but she’s been building an audience since 2009.  No email list in the traditional sense.

Alexis Giostra (a.k.a. MissTrenchcoat) has built a thriving community that tells her every single week what they want in the comments on her YouTube Channel.

Not only that, she’s used the platform along with her other social media main squeeze to sell digital products and even launch her recent coaching program using nothing but these two platforms.

Sounds intriguing right?

If you’ve ever felt like you had no one to launch to or that you just weren’t into email marketing...well, you’ll love my interview with Alexis.

I’m pretty sure today’s guest and I are sisters separated at birth. She is all about helping people find and embrace their expertise...and figure out how to turn that into a profitable course. But more than that, my guest Jeanine Blackwell seems to be this amazing combination of support, strategy, and tactical execution.

See - literally, I keep saying, wait that’s me too!

Jeanine’s in the middle of a launch right now and she sat down to talk about figuring out what you should offer whether it’s your first, second, or third time out of the gate.

She asks the tough questions that you probably haven’t thought of or taken a step back to think about.

Are you avoiding one area of true expertise? What question does your course answer? What’s something your ideal customer will actually pay to solve?

We get into a whole bunch of topics including:

  • How to find your best offers?
  • What to do before jumping into the launch?
  • How to stop circling around your expertise and use it to create a course
  • Why we’re all somewhat unconscious of our competence in certain areas
  • What it takes to get your expertise & brilliance into the world
  • How to fight your natural inclination to diminish your gifts
  • How to find clarity and figure out where your sellable expertise lives
  • The only offers that get through the static of all the offers we see online
  • Why you should re-think giving people what they need
  • Why figuring out HOW your audience talks is just half of the equation
  • Some of the big mistakes to creating a course

And so much more!

Look around at businesses online and offline - and it feels like some brands and companies are launching all the time.

But while you might see Starbucks, LuckyBrand Jeans and Kate Spade sending multiple “sales” emails every week… how much is too much when it comes to launching?

Should you launch all the time? Only every 6 months? Perhaps once a quarter?

And what exactly can you launch each time?

Today’s episode is a totally new style and feature this podcast recorded in my kitchen while I paced back and forth speaking into my iPhone.

I’ll be honest, there was another show in this slot today but I just had to get this question answered because it seems like I’ve been hearing people struggle to understand or figure out how to pace their launches.

In this episode, I share the primary tools I use for every phase of content creation -- whether it's for my blog, this podcast, my new channel on Youtube...coming up with the easiest tool set up is crucial to make sure I can get it all done!

Even if you are new to thinking about your blogging or podcasting as a strategy, this episode shares super simple and some fun tools that really work well together!

Are you in the habit of launching fast or at the last minute? Not a great habit, but if you're going to do it, here are three ways to make sure they are possible and profitable.

I sat down with business systems expert Val Geisler to see if we could find a new way to look at systems and maybe make the topic a little more appealing--especially to those of who are artists underneath it all.

We get into a whole bunch of topics including:

  • Why even though Val is a huge fan of beautiful things...she lets functional win when necessary.
  • 85% of Val’s decision making surrounds this one thing when choosing a tool in her business
  • What the “5 love languages” has to do with building systems and Val’s business
  • The main reason why you should you focus on your systems before you launch.
  • Val’s everyday system setup - the tools she goes back to again and again.
  • A sweet google mail hack that I should have known but did not!
  • The systems that usually need the most help for the majority of entrepreneurs.
  • Questions you need to keep asking yourself as your business evolves…
  • A surprising huge mistake that many new business owners are making - this one was shocking to me!
  • Thoughts on straddling two email service providers - why you’d do it, what are the challenges, and what are some other reasons you might do it!
  • Her secret to feeling more confident in her business...it’s a person we both know and love.
  • our shared mantra and tweetable...about following blueprints and making systems.

Last week we talked about how the work changes and doesn't change when you launch and relaunch your products and services.
