    Three Marketing Mistakes Small Business Owners Make

    Three Marketing Mistakes Small Business Owners Make

    Small business owners are amazing at so many things.  They're usually really good at their "thing" whether it's a product or a service.  They're also good at selling, they have to be.  But marketing is the area they struggle with.  These are three mistakes I see small business owners make with their marketing.
    1. They make it all about themselves.
    2. They do what everyone else is doing.
    3. They fail to build out the customer journey

    How to know if you should be an entrepreneur?

    How to know if you should be an entrepreneur?

    The choice is never easy....be an entrepreneur or work for someone else.  2020 has changed our lives and our careers and a lot of people are trying to figure out what to do.  I can't give you a simple, one-size-fits-all answer but these three criteria will help.
    1. Define what your superpower is and what you're the best at.
    2. Look at the phase of life you're in.
    3.  Take the time to clearly develop what you actually want in life.

    What are you building during COVID?

    What are you building during COVID?

    What are you building during COVID?


    The fact is, most of us have more time right now.

    Commutes are gone
    School is at home
    We’re traveling less
    We’re at home more
    Business is slow
    You’re job searching

    Maybe you’re experiencing a few of these, or all of these. Regardless we have more time than we normally do. What are you doing with it?

    I’m going all in on my personal brand. I’ve been on LinkedIn 5x week for 7 weeks.
    I’ve seen my numbers go from 800 to around 3600 connections.
    I’ve done over 20+ virtual coffees with people from LinkedIn.
    I’m redoing my personal website.
    I’m redesigning and pivoting my podcast of 4+ years.

    Life will pick up again. The days, nights and weekends will get busy again. I want to be ready.

    What are you doing during this season?

    The #1 thing keeping you from success

    The #1 thing keeping you from success

    We assume that failure is the #1 one thing keeping us from success.  It's not.  The biggest preventer of success is not starting.  So many of us have an idea, have a moment of clarity, we hear an idea that captures our imagination.....but then we fail to launch.  Don't let this keep you from your ideal life.
