Thanks for not only joining my list, but also for giving me an insight into you and your situation! I really appreciate it and to show you how much I value your feedback, I have a few resources that might interest you!
In March 2017 I hosted the Ladyboss Breakthrough Summit. This summit pulled together 20 speakers from around the world to talk all things that impact Ladybosses and gave us the tools to level-up and essentially have a breakthrough in business, branding, blogging, social media, productivity and our all important ladyboss mindset.
In this episode of the Brand It Girl podcast, we are diving into my top tips for places to spend your money when you are just starting out with your business. I know it can, be super hard to know what you should spend your money on and when. So I have broken down what I would spend my money on in 2017 if I were you!
I know that it can feel painful to invest in training programs and ecourses, especially when you are just starting out and cash flow might be low or you might not know who to trust with your hard earned dollars and your precious time. It can be scary and sometime you really don't know what you need to learn first or what strategy will actually help you to achieve your goals. And in many cases there's a multitude of people telling you to do this or that and it's just overwhelming right?
You start to think that just grabbing free courses would be a good idea, or perhaps don't even worry about that and spend your time surfing the web in search for blogs that answer your questions and give you clues as to what to do next.
This could be costing you more than you think.
If you haven't heard of a vision board, you are missing out on something that's not only super fun to make but also something that will help you to stay grounded and focused!
A vision board is a tool that you can use to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on specific life goals. A vision board is any sort of board or arrangement of images, quotes and visual ideas, that represents whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. Essentially keeping a vision board close by gives you laser focus when it comes to what you want to create in your life.
It's an exciting time here at Brand It Girl HQ. We have just launched our brand new membership site, The Brand It Boutique and it's doing so well, we have members starting to come in already!
I created The Boutique because I know that there are three main reasons that women either don't starting their own online businesses and blogs or that they fail to growing those businesses and blogs sustainably:
- THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO IT.
They either don't have the skills or knowledge that they need to get it started or to grow and develop using specific growth strategies like email list building, funnels, social media and systems. OR they know that they need these skills but they don't have the time to trawl through the internet, trying to find the answers and the be honest, they don't have the money to take a course on every topic!
- THEY DON'T THINK THEY CAN DO IT.
Another huge issue is mindset. They don't believe that they can or they don't think that they are worthy of success in this way. A big part of this is the dreaded Imposter Syndrome that traps us into believing that we don't really have the knowledge and skill that logically, we know that we do! Their mindset and physical health is often the reason women don't propel forward into their purpose!
- THEY DON'T HAVE THE SUPPORT NETWORK.
And lastly, being an online business owner, solopreneur &/or blogger can be terribly lonely. We often work from home on our own and it can be isolating! Friends and family don't necessarily understand what you are trying to build and why and this can mean that women taking this path are left feeling unsupported and like they are tackling this alone!
With these three big issues in mind, The Boutique was created based on these three pillars: education, wellbeing and support.
It's that crazy time of year again where we wind down the year that's been and get ready for the year to come. I always find this to be an exciting time, one filled with new possibilities and fresh perspectives. I am also a chronic planner, so once again, Brand It Girl is releasing the annual Life + Business Workbook to help you reflect on 2016 and get ready for success in 2017!
And just like last year, it's absolutely FREE! It's a reward for you because you've been such a loyal follower of the blog all year. And if you only just found me, well then, consider this a welcome gift!
The allure of starting your own online business has never been stronger. You are hearing the stories of wildly successful web-based start-ups and you are constantly inspired by the scale of the transformations people are seeing in their lives in very short periods of time. It feels like everyone is having 5-figure months and everyone has a sales funnel in place and you... well, you feel like you have been left behind.
I am not going to sugar coat this for you. Here it is, straight: You can have all that too.
