Why we need a little notice (And Why It's Important)

People love a look behind the scenes. I don’t know of any business that can’t benefit from showing the process, a first look, or even looks at what’s being created along the way.

Now, beyond people loving to be voyeurs into the process and seeing what’s really going on...why are these so powerful?

Simple - they take people on a journey with you. You invite people to be part of the creation of what you are making for them. You allow them to be co-creators!

Today’s prompt is important because as you’re going along in your business, you’ll be faced with lots of choices--lots of people who want to work with you, lots of courses to help you be a better business owner, tons of tools to choose from, and you’ll have to choose who you say yes and no to.

Starting today - I want to encourage you to say no to anything that doesn’t give you an immediate, “OMG I’d do that for free” feeling.

Say no to demands on your time that will push your launch further in the future. Say no to people who want you to support them during your launch.

Say no to playdates for your daughter, when you’ve got two webinars planned. Say no to conversations about other people’s businesses during your launch.

Say no and protect your launch.

Learning to say no - helps you set healthy boundaries with everyone in your world and also your soon to be customers and clients.

Today, we're talking about follow up and why it's so important whether you're doing a traditional live launch or not.

There are a few types of follow up you might have to complete today.

First, there’s the type of follow up we all need to do. Emails and voicemails and inquiries that need to be replied to... Today, make a list of some follow up you can complete, even if it has nothing to do with your launch. I like to set one day a week to make sure I’ve followed up with anyone who’s waiting for me to follow up!

If you don’t have time to follow up, still respond to someone and give them a real time you will follow up with them.

Second, when you are in launch mode, follow up is critical. It can be the difference between a sale and no sale.

Make time several times a week to respond to every email, social media message, comment and voicemail you receive.

Why?

Think of each one of those people as someone who may want to work with you, buy your product, and simply needs your help.

Leave no comment unanswered--on your blog, on videos, scour your Facebook groups. Do everything you can to close loops like this during a launch.

Feb 22, 2020

No matter what day of the week it is, sit down right now and set a few dates to help you start your launch map.

Why? Because even just a few dates will give you that tiny bit of structure to start thinking about your launch, what needs to happen by each date and give you a little nudge to get to work.

This is your first step. Even if you don't love planning every single detail out about anything in your life, setting a few dates will provide the focus and target for the work you're doing now!

This is your last installment in the series of me wearing my "sick" clothing. I'm shooting a brand new batch of videos for next week!

Who are the people you know have your back, support you, call you on your “stuff" and remind you when you’ve gone off track?

Think about people who’ve been friends, clients, maybe family members, besties, classmates...anyone who’s taken a role to remind you to keep going.

Who will hold you up when you’re not sure you can do it? Here's what to know about getting the right type of support--even the stuff you don't want to hear.

Who's on your launch team - who can be honest, tell you when they don't get it, and don't turn into "yes" people?

What's Your Best Channel? (plus a rant)

When you’re first starting out planning a launch, even starting your business, you might find yourself wanting to be everywhere all the time.

Now’s the time to look at the various places you show up online and offline...and where you’re getting the most feedback or having the most conversations.

This can be as simple as noting that you have a growing audience on Facebook but not on Instagram or vice versa. You might notice that people mostly email you personally. Maybe you have in-person clients that you signed via speaking at local events.

Where do you get the most interaction with people?

Choose the top 3. Focus on those places for sharing and publishing content. Focus on networking and getting to know people in those spaces.

Launch Goals vs. Launch Projections👇👇👇- Watch on IGTV too: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8enqjkJ3x5/

Download the launch challenge guidebook here: https://bit.ly/launchlovechallenge 

"Goals" is a big word, but today, I want you to think about your first launch (for a free or paid offer) this year. Grab your notebook, because you’ll need space for this!

What are your biggest goals for the launch? Is it revenue? How much? Is it a number of new clients or customers? Is it a certain number of subscribers?

Your goals might even be about why you want to launch...and what it would mean to your life. Goals for me are a mix of specifics, of the why and the vision.
Specific goals of the launch:

Why it’s so important for you to reach those goals:

What’s the bigger vision behind this launch and how it aligns with your business?

The point with setting goals is simple - you’re setting a target for yourself.

Feb 8, 2020

Okay, so what's the problem and your solution?

Once you start to understand who your ideal customer is, their dreams, their passions, their goals in life...you'll also start to see how they struggle. That's why today is all about defining that "problem" and then offering a "solution"!

Today we're talking about your person. You know, the one person you are creating your products, your services, and you are desperately trying to find!

You don't have to be creepy like me or direct...sometimes it takes a bit of listening, understanding, and curiosity to find out who needs your work the most!

Today is all about building your focus muscle.

Even if you’re launching, you may decide that you’re going to focus on a piece of that bigger project, maybe list building, maybe something you’re going to do to get you to your launch.

My suggestion is to choose the product or the service or the THING you want to launch, but be open to that changing throughout the challenge.


Tomorrow you’ll discover new things about what your audience is actually struggling with (as opposed to what you think they are struggling with).


This might be your toughest prompt of the challenge if you think you can multitask or have trouble sticking to one project at a time. Do it. Please. Resist the urge to take on multiple projects this month.


Feb 8, 2020

You're invited to follow along as I share daily prompts and advice to help you make progress on your next launch or whatever project you're working on or trying to grow in your business.

I'm posting the first 5 days of prompts so they are available right now.

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.

Welcome to Part 2 of the 6 part series all about getting launch-ready in 2020.

Today we're talking about the perfection problem that exists on every type of creative or launch project I've ever been part of and how to get over it (and yourself) to deliver on time and stick to your launch dates.

As creative entrepreneurs, we want to put our best work into the world. Sometimes though we don't know how to finish it, call it done...because we've got so many ideas.

But there comes a point when you're nearing that open cart date and you'll need to make the decision to cut, prune, and stop the work in order to launch...even when it doesn't include all of your genius ideas.

In this episode, we talk about the mantra I use to keep track of my new ideas, but not let them sideline or halt my entire launch!

A 6-part series teaching you 6 critical concepts, mantras, and skill you need to have better launches this year!

Want to start making more sales, having better launches, and grow your business this year?

If you’re constantly chasing all the tactics and so-called launch strategies aimed to get you making more on autopilot or with zero hustle...but you STILL don’t feel like you’re reaching any of your goals, then I’m glad you’re here today.

I made something for you.

This is a very special episode of the podcast. I’ve created a short series of special off the cuff episodes because we are in a new year, a new decade...and I don’t know about you but I’m ready to leave 2019 behind. 

As many of you know, I've experienced some things that have just kind of stopped me in my tracks personally in my personal life and I didn't want to get too far into 2020 without connecting with you. 

But here’s the thing, these 6 episodes are going to be timeless. You’ll want to revisit them whenever you need to get back on track, screw your head on straight or get talked off the ledge…

So in this multi-part series, we're gonna keep it super simple and talk about the 6 things you need to remember, understand, and completely embrace as you start planning your launch, doing the work of putting together all the pieces, and even after you open the doors of your launch.

Each day I’ll post a new episode right below this and then you’ll be able to find all 6 episodes right here!

Are you interested in taking your side-hustle full-time? 

Back when I first dove into the online business world, I wasn’t sure to be totally honest. I secured a job with Laura Roeder...because she had a business I could honestly see myself running someday.

I learned everything I could and finally took the leap...after two years of trying to manage own course launches of my signature program, Fearless Launching, I knew I owed it to myself to try.

Ever thought about starting a YouTube channel? If so, listen up today.

YouTube channels are great ways to build communities, build your audience, sell more of your products, reach more of your ideal customers, and share your expertise on an ever-expanding, highly shareable platform. 

Today’s guest has a tarot, astrology, and lifestyle channel called Minnow Pond. I discovered Chris Reck as I became part of his community…and watching his Tarot readings every single month.

And of course...I got curious. 

Because he wasn’t the only tarot reader on YouTube. In fact, this year it seems like a bazillion readers have shown up online.

So I started digging. How did this whole Minnow Pond thing start? What else was Chris doing in the world? How do tarot readers make money with Youtube as their primary publishing platform?

Hiring a team that supports your business vision is a gift.

Some of us turn to Google for ideas on creating a strong team. We tend to copy what other gurus do instead of using our intuition.

Today, our guest Jenna Irvin shares her story on how she used intuition to create a team from scratch and how we can do it too.

She also shares her story of starting, building, growing, and then selling her first business by the age of 23 is such a testament to what is possible when we trust ourselves...no matter where we are in life.

I can't wait for you to get to know this powerhouse woman...and everything she's up to in the world.

Today's bonus episode is a recent conversation with my long-time friend and business buddy Amber McCue. Now, this is another one of those fly on the wall style conversations that I love to share with you. Amber and I catch up about the past few years and then get into the meat of today's topic which is all about being RIGHT ON TIME. 

Here are some highlights from our convo:

  • Her long-running yearly virtual event called the Planathon (which kicks off Monday!)
  • Exactly how she maintains two successful businesses and what they are...
  • Some new things she's creating as a result of her life in Ethiopia.
  • Why "Right On Time" has become her new mantra (even though she's been telling her clients this for years)
  • And we also nerd out about planning and how it actually activates the creative thinking part of your mind!

If you want to check out the Planathon that starts MONDAY, October 28th...make sure to go to theplanathon.com/anne
