    090: The 6 Levers of Leverage

    090: The 6 Levers of Leverage

    The best way for entrepreneurs with kids ("Parentpreneurs") to build the life and business of their dreams... is by utilizing leverage. 

    Leverage allows you to have an exponentially greater outcome or result compared to the level of work or effort. 

    In this episode, I reveal the 6 levers of leverage and give examples of each. This was part of a live 5-day training I did on how Parentpreneurs can generate multiple 5 to 6 figure paydays each and every month, through my Targeted Audience Leveraging System.

Love Love Love

I love this podcast and have listened to every one of them, on the road, whilst doing my housework and I've even listened to a couple before bed. You've been everywhere with me Alexis lol. It's easy to listen to and full of great tips and advice. I especially liked the one with David the lawyer and admired his honesty, it was very refreshing. The other one I loved was the solo one. I felt it was specially created for me as I have a head full of ideas and don't know where to start when it comes to deciding which ideas might work online. I will be putting into action all the tips on the show. Every episode is like inviting your friends round for a chat and is very personable.
Thank you Alexis I love it X
