Top Takeaways

  1. Get hyper-focused on one thing. Make sure obviously it has value to people and just worry about delivering that value as much as possible at first to as many people as possible and know that it's going to be hard. 
  2. Passion will trump the best sales techniques all day. People want authentic excitement coming from the people they buy from.
  3. When you're feeling bad about your business, reach out and help someone else. Genuinely help someone else without any intention of trying to get something out of it.
  4. Scaling isn’t for everybody. Just because you want to have a big business doesn't mean that you should just go out and try and get a big business. Figure out what you really want and how you’re going to make it happen. What is the real purpose of creating this business?
  5. You have to work hard. The bigger the possible success, the more unknowns and roadblocks you’re likely to run into.

Top Takeaways
  1. Don’t be afraid to give something new a try. You can invest a little bit of time and/or money and if it works out well then you can put more energy into it with less risk.
  2. Get to know your audience and be authentic. This way you are able to establish who you are and the value of your brand – without shoving a sale in their face.
  3. Keep yourself motivated. As an entrepreneur it’s easy to lose momentum, so find someone or something that can help you stay motivated and inspired. This could be anything from listening to new podcasts or following people in your space on Twitter.
  4. Put in the work to grow your list. Frequent webinars on topics that appeal to your audience is a great way to do that, plus webinars are an excellent testing ground for your next product idea. 
  5. Help your clients get real results from the work you do with them. Get them to truly know the value, not just see it in theory.

  2. Find your niche and work hard at what you love – then it won’t seem like work.
  3. Surround yourself with people who will motivate and encourage youwhen you’re down. It never hurts to have a cheerleader on the sidelines rooting for you!
  4. Find the tools that work well for your business and get to know them well. Simple, easy to use tools will make you enjoy your job a lot more and keep your frustrations at bay.
