    How to Create a Business That Generates Revenue While You Nap, with Seemi Abdullah | an Oct 2021 Classic

    How to Create a Business That Generates Revenue While You Nap, with Seemi Abdullah | an Oct 2021 Classic

    Wouldn’t you like to have a business that generates revenue while you sleep? What about when you’re taking a nap in the middle of the day? That sounds pretty great to me!


    Seemi Abdullah has structured her business to allow her to do just that, so she is joining me to break down how.


    Seemi and I get into how she has structured her business and the journey she has been on to get to where she is now, how she leverages revenue share deals, how the pandemic changed her business, why she hired an OBM first, and a whole lot more. 


    Seemi Abdullah is the founder of TrilliumMontessori.org. She has over 20 years of experience in Montessori as a teacher and school administrator and owner and now works with other Montessori experts to provide professional development and curriculum resources to Montessori professionals around the world.


    Regardless if you are in the teaching space or not, I want you to listen closely to this episode because there are a lot of great takeaways throughout.


    In this episode you’ll Learn: 


    Mindset shifts that take place throughout entrepreneurshipWhat to consider when deciding who to hire and whenThe benefit of hiring an OBM firstHow to figure out what to get off of your plateWhy it's so important to have clean systems before you hand them overTips for streamlining your “busy season”


    I want to reiterate that Seemi has intentionally set up her business so she can take naps. That is awesome! Money still comes in while she’s sleeping - even in the middle of the day! This can be true for you too.


    I hope you enjoyed hearing the progression of Seemi’s business as well as what is ahead for her. I want you to remember an important lesson from this episode: you cannot be creative and grow your business if you are too caught up in the day-to-day tasks in your business. This is something that Seemi learned throughout her journey and it is something that I want you to think about.

    The Evolution of a Multi-Million Dollar Offer

    How do you know it's time to make a change in your business or your offers?


    In this episode of Art of Online Business, I wanted to open up and share about my own experience changing course and really optimizing my business over the last two years, specifically my offers.


    So many people are afraid to make changes to their business because they don’t want to be locked into something that they don’t enjoy, or because they don’t want to rock the boat on something that’s already working for them, even though it isn’t in alignment with their goals. 


    Sometimes you do need to make a change though. In this episode, I’m sharing how to know when it’s time to change, how to pinpoint opportunities for your business, and improve your business using data and intuition.

    (Best Of!) Pros & Cons of "Black Friday" Promotions

    (Best Of!) Pros & Cons of "Black Friday" Promotions

    Are you thinking about running a Black Friday promotion?
    In this quick tip episode of Art of Online Business, I’m sharing a “Best Of” episode from this time last year. The reason I wanted to share this again is that it’s that time of year and I get a lot of questions about this so I knew this would be a great episode to revisit. 
    To be honest, I have some pretty strong feelings surrounding Black Friday promotions and I want to break down the pros and cons in this episode so that you can make the right decision for your business. 
    The origin of this day is probably not what you think it is. It actually has a very negative association in history. If you decide to do it, there are ways that you can do it really well without getting mixed up in all of the noise of Black Friday promotions. 


    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    The origin of Black FridayWhy your promotion may just blend in with the rest on this dayWhy discounting diminishes the value of your workHow a discount helps people who can’t always afford your offersWhy these promotions can bring in some serious salesCreative ways to run a promotion
