My journey started a couple of years ago when I was sitting on the couch and I realized that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I was so out of shape and overweight I thought, "that's not really how I want to go through life cuz my kids are going to be getting married and I wanted to be able to participate in their wedding ceremony, dancing, that sort of thing.
So I decided to start eating healthy and the weight started coming off which gave me more energy and led to wanting to work out.
And all my friends started recognizing that I lost all this weight and I was working out and doing really well, so I started a Facebook group to post my recipes and secrets.
Before I started marketing my personal brand - that is my face, image and likeness on social media - I was scared as heck!
You better betchya that I used logos and stock photos cause I was scared about putting myself out there when I just got started.
Why in the world would I want my high school bullies to still be in touch with me - LOL?
That's the irony of social media. A medium designed to enrich our lives can also be a massive head and heartache.
Aside from having family and friends pondering your every move, dealing with all the flash and glamour can be overwhelming.
Do you ever scroll through social media and leave feeling icky?
Especially in regards to being more present for your business - ever feel like you're not doing enough?
You'll be outworked by the competition?
"My gosh their posts!! They're always more...
I get it.
When you're growing your personal brand, and you start...
What to say? What to say? What to say?
Is that question paralyzing you?
Most coaches don't know how to talk about themselves.
They are so passive with their marketing because they're stuck thinking about how to communicate.
Sometimes they say nothing at all.
There is a lot of fear around annoying people or coming across "too salesy."
And if they are confident, they jump to speaking about how "this product will do wonders."
They use wishy-washy language that sounds nice, but isn't clear - it's confusing.
They talk about their products, their programs, but never really share WHO THEY ARE.
They brush it off like it's not important.
"I don't need a personal brand," they say.
"It's not about me," they say.
If you want to call in more clients, cash and sell more so you can serve more people, you need to get over yourself!
It's time you "Know Thyself." (Socrates)

Are you marketing to get clients now or later?
In my mastermind group, a client asked how she can enroll a prospect in the next 2 weeks or less.
I took a look at her current marketing strategy and realized that a lot of her current business activities included strategies that would take 3 - 6 months to see results.
She was shocked when I pointed this out because she needed cash fast!
Internet Marketing and advertising is a great way to generate a stream of clients on demand. I experience it in my own business and the business of those I coach, however, you need to ensure you have all the systems and business structures in place to make that happen.
If you don't have all the systems and processes you need, then you'll need to do some traditional forms of marketing and sales to enroll a client now.
If you want to know how to immediately ramp up your cash flow in the next couple weeks or even days, this is for you.
To get clients now, implement...
So you want to serve a whole lotta people - right?
Your vision is global and the services you offer are going to change the world as we know it.
However, the idea of being in the public eye with your pictures, videos, and likeness all over the media is a little daunting.
Your ducks aren't in a row, and you feel like you're not ready to go big.
Fame, public speaking and a widespread social media presence can trigger some fear and is one of the main reasons why coaches & practitioners stay small and local.

What I really mean here is that you'll never be "perfect." You'll always have an area of improvement. Your face may have wrinkles. You will make mistakes, and yes, people may laugh at you publically....

I remember several years ago wishing and obsessing over the potential of having a freelance lifestyle where I work where I want, when I want, how I want, making as much money as I desired. This may sound like a Narcissistic desire. However, this desire was birthed out of a desperate need to care for my mother who was struggling with severe schizophrenia, blindness and out of control diabetes symptoms.
I had grand aspirations,...
