    Community & Take a Chance on New Software

    On today's episode of Hot Topics, Fay and Stacy talk about the benefits of investing in new software. We test, find ones we love and find ones that we don't like at all. What are the advantages to life time product deals? You are investing in the future of the product.  Tune in to find out why they continue to invest in new products through Appsumo.   

    Fay talks about the new program that focuses on community.  We compared it to Mighty Networks, Circle and many other community platforms.  We chatted about why we are not a fan of using Facebook and the drawbacks of keeping it to one social media platform.   

    Speaking of community, they also chat about getting to know those in your community, both online and local businesses. They share their recent experience in a local community that didn't know other businesses on the street. It's important as a local business to know others in the neighbourhood.

    Self-Care and Copy Cats

    Self-Care and Copy Cats

    We rarely think of self care as it relates to our business. If you want to have your business or brand succeed or try something new, you have to take care of yourself first. One of the reasons we decided to do the summit is to figure out ways to make us feel better in order to be productive.    

    Are you stuck in your business? Sometimes your business just need a jumpstart.  Short, immersive, action focused time can be exactly what you need to get things started. https://www.themastermind.city/workwithus 

    Do you like to travel for business? Tune in to learn what it's actually like to travel for business.  It sounds glamorous, but it comes with its challenges. As Fay expresses, Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart.  We never rest and always hustle. You need to put a strategy in place to have boundaries with your time and your laptop. What strategy will work for you?  You are more productive when you are focused.  

    They also dive into the details of a recent copy cat where they learned that someone directly copied their exact wording, brand and colours. Learn what they did and how authenticity is important for your business and brand. Use scripts as inspiration and not copy exactly.  Using our own words will help your brand sound like you.

    When is email support too much email support?

    When is email support too much email support?

    When is email support too much email support?  Stacy asked Fay this question on today's episode of Hot Topics.  Do you find your clients email you too much?  Where is the line? When is it too much and you need to move them to a session and have them pay you for your time?  Tune in to find out what to say, how to word your response and what happened when Stacy did that exact thing with a recent client.

    They also chat about pricing your services and how you get what you pay for. If you work with someone you are just "ok" with, the motivation is just not there.

    This episode also gives a sneak peek to what they have been working on for the past few months.  Things take longer than expected and those "do this one thing and you will make millions" don't work.  There is no such thing as an overnight success.
