today, I’m inviting you to stand with me and commit to an important project this summer — your systems. I’m going to walk you through exactly why systems are so important and why now is a great time to tackle them!
So excited to talk about systems…because they are at the core of your business, they can make your day-to-day so much more joyful…and you no longer have energy leaks where you’re trying to figure out how to do [well, pretty much anything in your business].
Since we only have 1 more episode of this season of the podcast, I wanted to share what I’ll be focusing on over the next few months.

Mentioned on today's show:
Today, we're talking about changing, revising, updating, and even completely ditching your online courses and programs.
Unlike marketing, you don't have to wait for a specific number of people to experience your offer... you get to start making changes and you will want to make changes much sooner!
Today, I'll take you behind the scenes of my 12-month program - and what I discovered over the past 6 months.
If you've been thinking your program could use some changes, don't wait, start thinking about them now, why you want to make them, and then how to get started.
Got questions? Interested in how to improve your own programs? DM me and let's chat!
Today's our recurring feature where I share the download of what's been happening in my business.
Every few months, I'll share the projects we've been working on, why we're doing what we're doing, and what's coming soon!
It's not all going to be dramatic or newsworth because sometimes in business, ya just have to handle the details and move on.

Today, I wanted to take you inside my brain - this is the "what’s happening inside the business" episode. We’ll do these every month at least once...likely because I have so much to share with you that I can’t stick to one topic.
Today, we dive deeper into 3 things that have come up along with an action challenge for you!
One thing - I’m putting a hold on true video episodes for the podcasts. We've got to get our systems situated before we add another platform!
I would love to hear how you feel about video podcasts and what would make them interesting for you! https://speakpipe.com/annesamoilov

There’s tons of advice out there telling online entrepreneurs how to build successful products, having successful launches. But what about the habits and practices to start doing that will support your launches?
Most small business owners spend very little time actually in launch mode. So why does it feel like we’re always in some state of launching?
Maybe because we’re avoiding the practices of running an actual business.
You forget that you’re running an actual business - which means doing boring, but important administrative tasks.
Today, we’re going to look at 3 areas that often get avoided -- intentionally and unintentionally.
In today's episode, I brought back Sophia Sunwoo of Ascent Strategy to talk about what happens AFTER you launch.
We talk about:

This is episode 276 of the Fearless Launching Show. Today we’re talking about that moment that happens for all online entrepreneurs where we ask the question -- do I really need another online course? Or do I need something more?"
This week I'm covering 5 actions you should take if you’re ready for something beyond an online course!
We all start needing to learn things. So we take the courses, we download things...and we get to work. Maybe we’re in this cycle of downloading and doing for years. At some point, I hear every single student and person I know utter the words, “ugh, I don’t think I need another course. I have plenty to apply right now.”
In today's episode, we're talking about why we should treat our launches like a system.
Today is also day 4 of our podcast series all about improving our launches and why going back to foundational concepts is the non-sexy strategy that will make launch overwhelm a thing of the past.

Today's episode is all about how your audience sees you. Have you ever felt awkward when someone shared their perception of who you are? It's weird, right? We are so much more than the definitions people put on us and yet...there's so much to be gained by letting our audience define us.

Tell me if this sounds familiar.
You get an amazing idea for a product, course or something else you want to create and launch to the world. You start brainstorming all the amazing things … it literally comes pouring out of you.
Maybe right along with this brainstorm, you start talking to friends about it...because you are literally THAT excited.
Have you ever been so excited about your idea and then found out that it had already been done? Or maybe you knew that it was already done many times over, so you’ve spent years telling yourself, “Don’t you dare create that!” or “Don’t waste your time!”
Heck, I’ve had that same idea with my signature program Fearless Launching? How many people are teaching about launching, launch strategy, or some type of launching or even something related to launching? Let’s just say A LOT.
If you have experience this or are experiencing it right now, today’s episode is for you. You might just get you some simple tools to getting through those thoughts and creating something EVEN WHEN it’s being done by many other people.

If I were to ask you, who’s your audience, how would you answer?
The people who share the stories of their audience, past customers, current customers like they are relatives or old friends?
This is the one system I'm focusing on because typically I'm great at listening, watching, learning who people are and connecting with them...but truth is I'm not doing as much as could with the information.
That’s all started to change and I’d like you to join me and improve your own approach to understanding your audience.
Let’s dive into figuring out how to gather, understand and USE all the information FOR our audience.
Head to the show notes to the survey I talked about AND to get your research tracker download:
There's a funny thing about building a business...launching products, services, making money only....
Many times we'll be all about a revenue goal we want to hit or a number of subscribers we want to reach. How many people can we get to our webinars? What's our sales page conversion rate?
Are we so consumed by needing to reach the end result that we can't recognize the growth that happens in between.
This week - we wrap up the discussion of having a successful launch by talking about launching better, improving, and why that's JUST as important.

One of the best ways to improve the power of your products is to create them as if they are part of a course curriculum instead of just stand alone somewhat related products.
Here’s why this is important and the topic of today’s podcast.
You provide a clear path and roadmap to follow, which helps strengthen and grow your community.
You allow yourself time to choose what products you create and which products you’ll promote. Thus giving you more time and freedom to focus your creative efforts on what lights you up and making your work the best it can be.
Today’s episode will help you kind of do both and give you a strategy for improving revenue without slaving over a new or even an updated product. You can focus on what you deliver the best while still giving your customers more value.
I’ll be referencing a past article I wrote for the site Think Traffic - way back in 2012 and I’ll link it below...so listen and then head over to that post!
It’s funny how you can pull wisdom from the archives…and it was especially relevant as I started to lay out the future for Fearless Launching -- not just as a stand alone course, but as a curriculum -- one that starts outside my doors!
So let’s dive in.
First - let’s talk about the way people usually create courses.
They come up with their first idea and do that...then they choose another topic that is relevant but necessarily related and they might create that.
Sometimes the courses will have some relation to the other, but rarely do you see them as a first or second or third step or having any order at all.
That’s why a curriculum really makes your entire product suite stronger and smarter.

Have you ever felt like your business was going in reverse?
There are lots of reasons you might start entertaining this idea or wondering. Maybe...
For me - the day to day of my business started to change...and it felt like all the sudden I was doing a lot of different activities… all making me happy, no dip in revenue...but definitely different from what I “thought” it would look like.
One of the biggest changes is that I started seeing more one-on-one clients and taking one-off short term projects. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a different view of how business was supposed to grow in my head. Do one on one work, grow your following, when you’ve got enough interest, step back to more scaled offerings like online courses where you teach people.
I thought, wait a minute, is my business going backwards? Am I supposed to go from teaching one to teaching many in order to scale? Am I doing this in the wrong order?

Have you ever compared yourself or your business to someone else?
If you’re saying - no, I kind of don’t believe you….
Comparing yourself to others is a pretty natural and it’s also completely normal thing.
And today - I’m sharing why it can sometimes it actually can be a good thing and how you can leverage competition in order to grow your business. And I'm so passionate about this topic because I see a lot of people let competition dictate what they dare to launch, create, and share with their audience.
And I don't want that to be you!

We’ve all had tough times in our business...
It’s knowing what to focus on a the right time...and today's episode is how I figured out what I needed to do to FIND that focus.
Last December, I was feeling a lot of angst about my business.
I wasn’t sure if I was bored. I wasn’t sure if I needed a break. I just knew that something was off.
At about the same time, Todd Herman's program The 90 Day Year was gearing up for it's first session of 2016.
Listen as I share exactly where I was in my business and why I knew this program would help me.
Full show notes will be available soon.
