    33 - Get a website, treat it like a business!

    33 - Get a website, treat it like a business!

    Just get a darn website, if you want to have a business you NEED to have a store. 

    Let it grow — it won’t be ‘perfect’ at first, but it will evolve xo

    First thing I did: Get a website. I built my first website on WIX and it sucked…literally was just a page with “here are my classes” but it took PAYMENTS, which was the BEST thing I could’ve ever done. When people show up to your store with their credit card/ bank card = they want to pay you..let them.

    Treat your website:


    It’s your STORE
    It houses all your products
    It is a way for people to come to you 24/7 instead of just your 9-5 store front hours
    Make sure your ‘shelves’ are stocked….I mean you wouldn’t rent a store / lease a building and NOT have products in it. Treat it the same!
    Great spot to EMAIL list (listen to episode 32 if you have to start building one)

    32 - Build a list, get the money, here's how to build a list of people who want your products.

    32 - Build a list, get the money, here's how to build a list of people who want your products.

    Every entrepreneur NEEDS a list, but so many of us just focus so much on putting content out into the world and find we never have any "leads". 

    It's time to start building up a line up outside of your store so you always have leads.  In this episode I talk all about how you can collect information from your audience,  so you can make sure to stay in touch with them outside of social media. It's time to get OFF social media and dive into your marathon list building. 

    Some key points in this episode: 

    LIST BUILDING = core foundation of building ANY business.


    Your audience wants to ‘binge’ consume just like Netflix…aka have LOTS of content like blogs, podcasts, youtube videos.
    Within that content ask them for their EMAIL address in exchange for giving them MORE information
    Its a marathon - slow and steady…put yourself out there consistently
    Collect PHONE numbers, EMAILS, home addresses = get people OFF of social media and onto your LIST, even if it's on paper - whatever you have to do just do it! 
    The importance of getting a waitlist of people…so you don’t PANIC when you need to make money, as a business owner you should always have leads...and I'll show you how.
