    Jolie's Story: Selling Art & Journals Online, Doing the Work, Making More Money

    Jolie's Story: Selling Art & Journals Online, Doing the Work, Making More Money

    Jolie Dennison is an artist in the UK who sells her art and bible journals online. She's had a pretty crazy year - from closing her brick & mortar shop after 6 years to health issues to cresting snd selling a "replenishable" product (bible journals) in addition to her art.

    It hasn't always been easy - not even close. But in the episode, Jolie tells how she perseveres, gets support, and DOES THE WORK.

    "When I do the things I learn in the coaching program, I make more money."

    The key for Jolie is working around her health issues and staying focused on her goals - no BSOS (bright shiny object syndrome).

    Jackie's Story: How We Helped Jackie Grow Her Online Sales 183%

    Jackie's Story: How We Helped Jackie Grow Her Online Sales 183%

    When I first met my guest today, Jackie Ayres from Dyetology, she was running her business while working a full-time corporate job. All of the sales from her apparel and accessories line "side hustle" were coming from in-person art shows and B2C events. It was fun - but exhausting.
    Her main objectives in working together were:
    ditch the day job, and flip the business model to mostly online sales -- with some high end direct-to-consumer shows dabbled in The first half of last year really sucked for Jackie. She had already quit her day job (yay) but she had back surgery and couldn't do all the things to grow her business.
    Forget about selling at shows - she was in pain.

    She thought the entire year would be a wash.

    And then...she doubled down. She got into action with her online biz and Holy Moses she turned into Jackie the Entrepreneur 2.0:
    Her online sales are up 183% from last year  61% of her sales came from her online store Can I get an AMEN? And all of this growth came from the last 6 months of 2019.
    Jackie shares how she's growing her business. 
    She also tells us how joining a business coaching program helped her get clear on her marketing & sales plan and gave her the support & accountability she needed.

    Our monthly coaching program has been a life-changer for Jackie.

    Understanding and Not Being Afraid of Cash Flow with Layne Booth from Project Booth

    Understanding and Not Being Afraid of Cash Flow with Layne Booth from Project Booth

    My guest today is Layne Booth, CEO of the Project Booth. Her goal is to "bring the data and not the drama to actually grow your business".
    In this episode, Layne and I discuss how product-based business owners can get a better understanding of cash flow, inventory management, timing of deliveries, and more.
    Data and numbers are swirling around in every business. This can be very overwhelming and uncomfortable if you don't understand what the numbers really mean. 
    When I owned my retail store, I was obsessed with cash flow. Obsessed (and anxious). My Chicago boutique often carried $500K in inventory - a huge investment I was always worried about screwing up.

    Layne helps business owners with all things data and numbers - online shop owners, Amazon sellers, and brick and mortar boutique owners. 
    Let's face it, numbers, speadsheets, and dashboards freak some people out a little. Layne just gets it. And she makes it wasier for us to understand. 
    Enjoy!

    Starting a Shopify Store and Growing it to $50 K in Sales with Susan Bradley

    Starting a Shopify Store and Growing it to $50 K in Sales with Susan Bradley

    "Nobody wants to share the stuff that doesn’t work."
    Susan Bradley is the rare person who's willing to share publicly the good and the bad as she launches a Shopify store from $0 to $50K.
    Honestly, I don't think I'd have the courage to do what Susan's doing - sharing step-by-step, in real time, the building of her online store. 
    It's fascinating and inspiring.
    In this episode, she tells us about choosing a niche and then pivoting away from it, doing a proof of concept event, and the "sideways launch" that wasn't really meant to happen but happened anyway. 
    Susan is awesome and you're going to LOVE this episode. 

    "My mission was to show you exactly what I did, what happened, and what I might change if I were doing it again." - Susan Bradley

    Today's episode will expand your brain and help you make a simple PLAN for the next year of your life.

    Kendra's Story: How She Sold $12,000 at a Direct to Consumer Selling Event

    Kendra's Story: How She Sold $12,000 at a Direct to Consumer Selling Event

    Let's talk about selling $12,000 from a B2C market. How fun would that be? Fo realz...
    That’s exactly what my guest did at a recent event in Philadelphia.
    In today’s episode, I interview Kendra from Char-Coal and she shares exactly what she did differently at this show and reveals all of her brilliant secrets.
    And get this...her  product's price point is under $300. That’s a lot of merchandise sold. Yowza!
    She cracked the code on how to get people to buy from her booth.
    Walk around any direct to consumer market, craft show, or art fair and you’ll notice a peculiar phenomenon. Some booths are busy with shoppers while others are dead.
    Which results in some very happy vendors with money in their pockets and some who are miserable.
    I want YOU to be the happy vendor - to be like Kendra and sell twelve grand.
    Have a listen...
