You have a skill. You have a passion. And, you’re pretty darn good at it. You want to or have already started turning that drive into a business.
But, there’s so much to do! And, as a parent, there’s already an infinite amount of work required to take care of the kids. Somehow, you’re supposed to take care of the day to day AND build a business?
Oh, and it’s not any business you are trying to build. You are yearning for something that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. You want to use your talents and knowledge you already have to take things to the next level. You want to be an amazing role model for your kids.
Did I mention you want to do it from anywhere? This is not just any old business you are building. What you are building will allow you to travel as much as you like.
You want the business of your dreams that lets you do what you love – whenever, wherever.
How’s that going for you?
You expect yourself to do it all single-handedly and all at the same time?
You don’t really have great direction on what you are supposed to be doing. You are searching the internet for all the free downloads you can find. You’re unsure of what actually needs to get done – what should be included and what shouldn’t.
Every once in a while, you feel like you find a right answer. A guru on the internet said what you wanted to hear at the right time. But wait, then you heard something else that says something completely different.
In the beginning, ramping up your business sounds impossible. You get started, and then it even starts to feel impossible. But, then something clicks. All of a sudden, you get some traction – make a few sales. Then, people start coming to you. They love you! They are throwing money at you asking for your help.
You get into a groove. You know exactly what you are supposed to be working on. You have a routine. The overwhelm is starting to wash away.
Your family can feel the benefits of you doing what you love. You have way more energy to devote to them. Your spouse and kids notice that you have more patience.
You get to exercise some of those benefits of self employment; you can travel whenever and for however long you want. Your family LOVES the new vacation schedule.
You can’t wait to help more people. You’re excited for Fridays, but also for Mondays (or whenever your “Fridays” and “Mondays” are).
I was an engineer for 11 years climbing the corporate ladder. The lifestyle allowed me to pay off my student loan debt, buy a house, get married, and have a couple of kids. But, then what?
I was left wanting more satisfaction from my work. I wanted something I could proudly show off to my kids and to set a great example for them. And, of course, I wanted to travel more. I wanted the flexibility to work when I want and where I want.
Now, I do what I love as a profession. I get to help budding entrepreneurs realize their full potential on their own terms. I help them focus in on exactly the product or service that is best for them. My clients get clarity on precisely who their ideal customer is. Then, they create an outreach plan that brings in a steady stream of customers.
The real icing on the cake is that I take as much time as I need throughout the day to be with my wife and kids. Sometimes, we’re together at home but 12+ weeks out of the year we are traveling. That is my ideal life design.
I want to help you, too, achieve your ideal life design.
There is no cookie-cutter approach that will make you successful. We will hone in on the biggest pain points of your business and work on them first.
My Design + Grow Masterplan is a 3 month long program where we will meet through a video phone call weekly.
As we are working on your biggest sources of frustration, we will naturally work through my 6 foundations of business.
The blueprint phase is all about strategy. We will start with your goals. What are you trying to accomplish? And, most importantly, why? This is utterly important so that you can weather the inevitable ups and downs of creating a business you love.
Next, we’ll translate your goals into a high level strategy. We don’t need to make every decision now, but we need to understand who your ideal customer is, what resources you are starting with, and generally how you want to serve your customers.
Your blueprint will point us in the right direction of how you want to serve your customers, but we’ll take that a step further. We will pinpoint the offer that triggers a “heck, yeah!” response from your potential clients, the offer that is a “no-brainer”.
We’ll explore what your pricing says about your brand and make sure that it is consistent with your overall message.
I’ll be there to guide you through the process, cheer you on and periodically dish out the cold, hard truth to inevitably result in your success.
Look, most people avoid this part, but I’ll make it simple. Yes, I will open an Excel spreadsheet for us to work on together, but, no, it won’t be painful. I promise. The goal is that we model out the revenue and expenses and look at the flow of cash through your business. In order to reach your financial goals… Are your prices high enough? Is there an overly large expense weighing down profits? Is there enough time in the day to deliver on all your promises?
We will look at your business from a dollars and cents perspective and make sure that the money is what you thought it would be.
Aka Marketing and Sales. But, that all boils down to just one thing – making a connection with your potential clients. Selling something is as simple as understanding your ideal customer’s problem and solving it. We already know the perfect offer that will do this, but we need to talk to them. There are many ways to do this, but we’ll identify the ones that are perfect for you.
I have a secret for you regarding outreach techniques… They all work! You just have to do them.
Everyone gets stuck at some point with actually creating the “thing” you want to create. There’s software out there you can integrate for just about everything. But, just thinking about the words “software” and “integrate” tends to make people a bit anxious. Fortunately, I love the technical nitty gritty, so bring it on!
If the plan we lay out doesn’t sound like what you want to do, you can always hire some help. I can help you with that, too. It all comes down to the sliding scale between time and money. All the information you need to create just about anything is available on the internet. It’s just do you want to spend the time to figure it out. Or, is it time to hire some help.
I chose to take the time to do all the technical back end work (and you’ll have access to my experience), but your decision may be different.
This can be one of the most effective steps at eliminating the overwhelm that creeps in on most entrepreneurs. You may know exactly where you want to be, but what are the steps that you have to take to get you there? That’s the question we’ll be answering. Starting with a 3 year vision, we’ll back into a calendar of what needs to be done each month for the next year. Next, we’ll create a 90 day action plan. Finally, we’ll break that 90 day action plan down into a weekly and daily schedule.
As you continue on your journey, I’ll help you make adjustments to each part of the plan. You are going to learn what works well, what doesn’t, and you’ll get a deeper understanding of how best to serve your customers.
Even just reading through the Design + Grow Masterplan may be intimidating. Maybe, even considering making the investment in yourself and your business makes you second guess your abilities.
But, guess what. Someone else has done what you are trying to do, and accessing their knowledge and experience will shave months or years off of you reaching the revenues you crave.
It can be scary going for your dreams. But, what’s scarier is not attempting to reach them.
“Action is the antidote to fear.” – Ruth Soukup
We all have fear, and it looks different to everyone at different times. Fear can include:
An Australian nurse spent 12 years counseling people who were dying. She concluded that the most common regret was:
“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” – from the book The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware.
I am always trying to improve my life so that it is more “true to myself”. I find that it is a common feeling among my clients as well.
I have so much more to share, and I hope I get the opportunity to do so in our first introductory call.
