    The Secret to Great Client Testimonials

    The Secret to Great Client Testimonials

    What are your first steps when it comes to hiring a coach, signing up for a high-ticket program, or buying an expensive new gadget? If you’re like most people, once you’ve gone through the website to learn about the offer, you seek out testimonials to make sure you’re going to get your money’s worth.


    So… why are so few of us requesting feedback from our own clients? 


    The math is simple: the more time, money, or effort your prospect expects to spend on your offer, the more crucial positive reviews are in helping them make their buying decision. The problem? Most entrepreneurs don't know HOW to approach their clients in order to get great feedback — and when they do receive feedback, they’re not exactly sure how (or where) to use it!


    In this juicy episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I reveal the secret to collecting enthusiastic, specific, and detailed client testimonials, and using this powerful social proof to build your thought leadership and close more sales. BONUS: you’ll also learn how to gain more Google or Facebook reviews!


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    Two proven methods for collecting great customer testimonials (and your best-bet timing!) How to create, personalize, and send your testimonial request template The biggest Dos & Don’ts of requesting reviews from your clients

    Trust in Yourself with Charmie Galang

    Trust in Yourself with Charmie Galang

    Do you see yourself as a savvy businessperson? Or is second-guessing keeping you stuck? Women entrepreneurs frequently struggle with feeling confident in our abilities and suffer from imposter syndrome at higher rates than men. Much of this stems from the deep-seated sexism of our society (the same sexism that causes female business owners to receive less attention and fewer funds from investors and banks). But while this lack of confidence is common, it isn’t inevitable. You CAN break free from self doubt and step confidently into your role as CEO!


    My guest for this episode of The Business of Thinking Big is Charmie & Cie founder Charmie Galang. Through shifting from financial coaching to running a virtual assistance company, she not only helps her clients build profitable freedom businesses — she’s also created her own!


    Our conversation explores how women can learn to trust themselves and their decisions, so they can grow their businesses with more confidence. Tune in as we dig into the importance of investing in yourself, what to look for in a business coach, how to tame your overwhelm, and why joining a community of likeminded peers is a game-changer.


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    Three big “OMG!” leaps that required Charmie to cultivate trust in herself (and how they changed her business)What to do with business goals that no longer align with your life goals   How to know when you’re ready to dissolve a partnership that’s no longer working

    Guest bio: Charmie Galang is a Financial Coach and the founder of a virtual assistance company. Her mission is to help female entrepreneurs who feel overwhelmed by the demands of technology, social media, and bookkeeping tasks in their businesses. She achieves this by connecting them with highly skilled and dedicated Virtual Assistants who treat their clients' businesses as if they were their own.

    The Importance of Money

    The Importance of Money

    “Money doesn’t matter to me.”
    “Money isn’t the reason why I do what I do.”
    “I’d be doing this even if I weren’t getting paid.”


    Many business owners tell themselves that they just don’t care that much about money, and that passion is the driving force behind their businesses.  For plenty of entrepreneurs, this may be true to some extent. But when we ignore the importance of money in our businesses, we not only leave too much of it on the table — we actually HURT our ability to grow.


    In this episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I talk about the role that money actually plays in your business, and why it’s SO important to give it the attention that it deserves. From money mindset issues to lingering too long in the “hobby stage,” I explore what may be keeping you from prioritizing your income and share my top five tips for making money a focus, so that you can earn (and keep) more of it!


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    What causes so many women to deprioritize the money side of their business5 important reasons why you should keep your mind on your money The problem with relying heavily on influencer marketing and bartering — and the benefits of putting a fair number on your products and services!

    Balancing Masculine and Femenine Energy with Emily Wilcox

    Balancing Masculine and Femenine Energy with Emily Wilcox

    When working toward our big and bold business goals leaves us feeling frustrated and disconnected from our businesses, the problem may be energetic! 
    When we’re operating too much in our masculine energy, things can start to feel forced, out of alignment, or even “yucky” (you know what I’m talking about!). If you find yourself struggling to feel connected to and in alignment with your business, then it’s probably time to try something different. Spoiler: it's not about doing more.
    In this episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I sit down with money healer and business mentor Emily Wilcox to explore the power of embracing your feminine energy and taking a softer approach to your business. Emily is a serial entrepreneur who has built three different 6- and 7-figure businesses and uses energetics, woo-woo, and a sprinkle of strategy to help women build their fempires and walk the joyous path to millions – you know I love it!
    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    The importance of balancing your masculine and feminine energies — and how this can transform your life, relationships, and businessHow to diagnose which energy you’re currently in (and whether you’re out of balance!)How to weave feminine energy into your sales and marketing

    Guest bio: Emily June Wilcox is a crystal-loving, coffee-drinking money healer and business mentor. Her mission is helping women create the wealth they desire by healing their money wounds – which allows women to act from purpose and passion instead of obedience and obligation. You can hear more from Emily by tuning into her Top 3% Global podcast, The Joyous Path to Millions Podcast.

    Accessing our Inner Mentor

    Accessing our Inner Mentor

    Do you truly believe that you have what it takes to succeed? Or do you find yourself held back by self doubt? Too often, we don't trust ourselves enough to make the big power moves or decisions that will move the needle in our businesses. 
    You may believe that you’re too inexperienced or that you don’t have the skills necessary to take your best next steps or attract your dream clients. It’s really easy to fall victim to feelings of imposter syndrome! But as I tell my coaching clients and community, you already have all the best answers inside of you — all you need to do is learn how to access your inner mentor.
    Your inner mentor is a version of yourself that is further ahead, more experienced, and has the insights that you need to take your business to the next level. While this concept may sound a little woo-woo or magical, it reflects the very foundation of good coaching work. The best coaches don’t just offer you answers and instructions, they help you tap into and trust your own knowledge and intuition!
    This episode of The Business of Thinking Big draws on the concept of the inner mentor developed by Tara Mohr in her book Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead. If you love this episode, I definitely recommend buying her book!
    Listen now to discover:‌
    A powerful exercise that will help you begin to access your own inner mentor What it means to grow from beginner to intermediate to advanced — and the role that inner knowing plays in these transformationsThe big difference between consulting and coaching (and what good coaching really looks like!)Timestamps:‌

Feeling so motivated!

After meeting Lianne and her gorgeous family during their dream trip to the South of France, I got curious and listened to her podcast…so glad I made that decision today, I’m feeling inspired and empowered to take control of my dreams, throw out the excuses and make them happen! Thanks Lianne for your encouragement and practical, well thought out life advice, looking forward to taking a deeper dive into the podcast archive next time the baby takes a nap!
