OTF Masterclass #069 - How To Overcome Self-Doubt To Become A Fearless Entrepreneur
You already know about the 80/20 rule. It says that 80% of the results you get come from 20% of the actions you take.
In other words, a few things tend to move the needle a lot, whether it be in health, business, relationships, or any other area of life.
You likely use this principle when coaching your clients. You help them understand that there are a few “needle movers” that they need to focus on. They need to prioritize.
The same is true for your business.
The 80/20 rule shows up all the time and one of the most powerful ways is when it comes to your mindset and beliefs:
The most impactful 20% of work you can do to improve your business success is tied the way you THINK.
Your mindset is going to help you get more clients, earn more money, have more impact more so than the tactics or strategies you implement.
How you think about yourself, your business, your potential, your purpose… It’s the small number of thoughts and beliefs (the 20%) that will create huge growth for your business (the 80%).
Let’s dive in.

If you’re not sure what you’re selling online, it’s time to figure it out so that you can start making sales asap.In today’s masterclass, we’ll reveal the 4 key ingredients for an online program that people will actually want to buy.

OTF Podcast #064 - How This 55 Year-Old Health Coach Took Her 'Last Shot' In Business And Earned Over $25,000
By nature, many coaches have an inherent desire to help others. Helping is a priority… even if it means sacrificing your own time, energy, even mental and physical health to do so.
It’s great to help, but you cannot go through life sacrificing for others, never being able to take care of your needs, never earning any money, never being able to contribute to the needs of your family.
At some point, “hustling” to make ends meet just doesn’t work.
You will burn out.
You will no longer be able to help anyone.
There is a point when you have to decide: “Is this worth it?” Or is it time to move on to something else?
