Top Takeaways
  1. Don’t let your comfort zone keep you from doing something amazing. Getting out of your comfort zone will help you learn about yourself, achieve new things, and make you more confident in who you are as a person.
  2. Take partnerships seriously, even with your competition. Before you start a partnership, try out a collaborative project first. 
  3. Don’t let raising your prices for your product or business hold you back. When you provide value, you will also provide opportunities for your community to grow together.
  4. Playing small keeps a lid on your audience, and does a disservice to them. 
  5. Think big tree vs. tending a fledgling orchard. Focus your efforts on a singular business that eventually (not immediately) has multiple branches.

Top Takeaways
  1. Take one step at a time, just because someone says you need to do something doesn’t mean it’s always right for your business or it might be better done at another time.
  2. There is honor in working. Do what you love and don’t be fooled by others touting a 3-hour lazy lifestyle.
  3. Find people who can hold you accountable. This might be accountability circles for small business owners. Take time to check in with each other, ask each other questions.
  4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help during challenging times. Life is unpredictable. Asking for help can give you time and space to heal, and give you the ability to do your best work when you’re back in action. 
  5. Think of LinkedIn as a search engine. Consider the type of people you want to connect with and create your profile with the right keywords to make it easy for them to find you.

Lou helps busy small business owners fully leverage and express themselves by using video marketing in authentic ways. A former marketing executive for radio and television, including with Fox Family (now ABC Family) and E! Entertainment, Lou’s consulted entrepreneurs with their video strategies and action plans since 2002.

Top Takeaways:
  1. With today’s tech and resources, small business owners are essentially their own TV stations. Your role is producer, director, and actor of the shows you wish to make.
  2. To be successful on camera, you don’t need to adopt some stranger’s persona – just be you.
  3. With people sometimes watching 2 or 3 screens at the same time, it’s important to keep your videos short and attention-grabbing.
  4. You don’t have to start from scratch. Use templates from services like Leadpages and Envato marketplace to get a head start on your marketing.
  5. It’s awesome if everything you do is successful, but don’t be afraid to fail. Even Major League Baseball players are MVPs when they get hits less than 4 out of every 10 at-bats.

Top Takeaways
  1. Be resilient. You simply can’t give up after trying one thing that doesn’t work out.
  2. Involve other people. Expanding and nurturing your business doesn’t have to be done alone. Asking for help or hiring someone to help around the house while you work can make all the difference.
  3. Understand your audience. Match your product or service to the needs and skillsets of your students and customers. This way you can offer exactly what they’re hoping to receive in an easy, understandable, and timely fashion. 
  4. Make it easy for your students to take action. Online learning is all about taking action because action produces results. Don’t leave your audience guessing at every turn–– if you do, they won’t last long.
  5. Make connections. Set aside time with others to fuel your journey. Sometimes all you need is a solid brainstorming session to get the creative juices flowing.
