    What I Learned About Finding Clients in 2019

    What I Learned About Finding Clients in 2019

    As business owners, most of us are really good at setting big goals for our business. Especially revenue goals, but many times we don’t think about what it’s going to take to actually reach that goal.

    I speak from experience as someone with many an ambitious goal that wasn’t met because it wasn’t grounded in reality. For many people, those big goals are super motivating, but for me, they’re soul crushing when I fall short.
    In this episode, I wanted to share some real numbers to give you an idea of what it took to increase revenue in 2019, and more importantly, what I learned about finding clients.

    Building Real Relationships with Lisa Princic

    When you run a service-based business, relationships are the name of the game. They are the true currency of your business — not money. 
    If you've ever wondered HOW to make those relationships happen in a way that feels both organic and REAL, then today's episode is for you. My guest, Lisa Princic, shares what it means to "scale deep" and why focusing on creating relationships that are more meaningful with fewer people is critical for service business owners.

    November Recap and a Look Ahead at 2020

    November was proof that sometimes the best-laid plans go awry when life happens. 
    In this episode of the Small Business Boss podcast, I talk about taking a pause to prioritize my health while simultaneously dealing with some growing pains and shifts in our client load. I’m keeping it real and sharing what a month that was pretty much “survival” mode looked like.

    Planning with Intention (And Avoiding Procrasti-planning)

    Planning is a necessity when you run a business, but in the online business world, it's a big old commodity. Planning is seen as the answer to everything, so there’s no shortage of courses and services to take your money in exchange for some regurgitated planning advice. 
    In this episode, I'm talking all about planning with intention (while not falling into the trap of procrasti-planning) and how to create annual plans that actually improve your business results in the coming year. I’m breaking down my FIVE specific things for my annual plan to help you get focused on what matters most.
