    Interview with a Success Story - Alonia Taylor - Episode 5

    Interview with a Success Story - Alonia Taylor - Episode 5

    In this episode, I interview a client Alonia Taylor. She’s a dreamer with a day job. We talk about how I helped her finally take the necessary steps to becoming a professional writer.

    Today’s episode is...
    “Interview with a Success Story - Alonia Taylor”

    Or

    From “Fantasy” to Reality in 25 Days!

    What happens in this episode?
    I have my first interview on the podcast with a client and aspiring writer Alonia Taylor. We talk about how she went from being too afraid to even call herself a writer, to having a fantasy novel and a marketing strategy fleshed out in less than a month.

    I drop a lot of gems about how aspiring artists can make tons of cash from what they do. If you’re an aspiring artist of any kind, you definitely don’t want to miss this one.


    Why is this episode so important?
    Alonia is a regular grown ass person, with a day job and a burning passion to do more with her life. She was stuck in the muck of her everyday grind, probably just like you. My hope is that by seeing what’s possible for her, you’ll be inspired to finally say, “YES!” to your dream.

    This episode shows the power of actually working with a professional business coach. You’ll see in this episode that my aptitude for “getting shit done” gave Alonia a set of solutions she never even knew were available.

    Episode Highlights
    Trying to launch a “practical business” is a recipe for disaster. It’s smarter to go after impractical dreams than boring, seemingly attainable ones. “Starving artists” are just people who only have one revenue stream for their business. 
    IMPORTANT NOTE

    Don’t forget about the “312 challenge”!

    Like I said in this episode, I’m giving every listener the same opportunity as Alonia got when we first met.

    Meaning, I’ll let you pick my brain about whatever business idea you have -- FOR FREE

    Just text / call me at 312-521-0509

    Introduce yourself and say, “Hey, I got this big idea. I want to get off the ground. Can we  talk about it”

    I am going to give you a link to a FREE 20-minute mini-coaching session and I’ll talk with you all about your idea.

    Don’t be shy. You’re one text away from a breakthrough!

    Thanks for listening to Boss Talk and I’ll see you next episode.

    Mark Gets His Breakthrough In 20 Minutes! - Episode 6

    Mark Gets His Breakthrough In 20 Minutes! - Episode 6

    Here’s the scenario. You’ve got a talent… BUT… you’re scared to charge money for it because, “What if no one wants to pay for it?” So you just keep giving it away for free. That was Mark’s situation, before our session.

    Today’s episode is...
    Mark Gets His Breakthrough In 20 Minutes!


    What happens in this episode?
    Today I’m going to take you behind the scenes of my business and you’re going to hear a real “Brainstorm-2-Breakthru” session, featuring a new client.

    “Brainstorm-2-Breakthru” sessions are pretty straight forward.

    New clients tell me what business or talent they’d like to make money from.
    They tell me the one thing that’s stopping them from moving forward.

    Then, I use my years of experience to provide them with a solution in 20 minutes or less!

    In this session, Mark James Heath (a community event organizer) talks about wanting to get to the next level of his career. His only problem is… He doesn’t know how to ask people to pay him for his services.

    Why is this episode so important?
    Most people think they're talented, but not talented enough to actually be paid as a professional. If you fall in that category, chances are you need to unpack some negative mental programming, just like Mark does in this session.

    Episode Highlights
    There’s power in seeing yourself as an “opportunity” instead of “a bill”. Respecting your customers’ “true values” is the secret to getting paid for what you do.
