What I’ve Learned in the Last Two Years of Business

What I’ve Learned in the Last Two Years of Business

November 18, 2020

It's been a little over two years of being in business and leaving my teaching job and I want to share with you the three things that I have learned in the last two years. I did an episode last year talking about what I've learned in my first year of business and I figured it was only fitting to make this an annual episode each year so I can share the things I've learned from having my own freelancing and coaching business!

 

 

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • What you need to do in order to scale your business
  • Why investing in myself has been the driving force behind my business
  • Why it's important to take fast, imperfect action
  • About a super exciting announcement

Scaling Your Freelancing Business with VIP Days with Courtney Ibinger

November 4, 2020

Looking to scale your business but don't want to be working #allthehours? That's where our guest, Courtney Ibinger, was just a little while ago and she decided it was time to change up her offerings and decided to add day rates into her business. Now, she offers solely half day and full day rates to her clients and she is going to break down what that looks like for her, how she was able to make the shift, what type of clients are a good fit for this business model and so much more! 

 

Courtney is a wife, mama to a one-year old boy, and former middle school teacher turned instructional designer. She grew up in Wisconsin, so she'll always be a midwesterner at heart, but now she calls Greenville, South Carolina home. Her favorite things in life are family trips to explore new places, iced tea with lemonade, and the excitement of helping a client set up their online course or membership.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • How Courtney got started with freelancing
  • When Courtney decided it was time to narrow in on what services she was offering
  • How she started incorporating day rates into her business
  • What day rates/intensives/VIP days are 
  • What type of client and service is a great fit for VIP days

3 Strategies to Grow Your Business While Working Full Time with Holly Haynes

3 Strategies to Grow Your Business While Working Full Time with Holly Haynes

September 30, 2020

Do you feel stretched for time? Maybe you're juggling all the things right now... mom life, your house, your full time job and building a business... and you're just not sure how to make it all work and fit everything in. I know this is a big struggle for a lot of my listeners which is why I asked my friend Holly Haynes to come on the podcast and share her strategies of how she was able to build the business while working full time. She still works at her 9-5 and has a successful business, so if she can do it, so can you! 

Holly is crazy passionate teaching women how to build a side hustle without sacrificing weekends and their priorities! She believes strongly that you can create a routine you love and with the right tools create a lifestyle that works without burnout! 

She started her first coaching business in network marketing when her twins were 18 months old while working full time. She was excited to start something she was passionate about but overwhelmed with how to make progress in small pockets of time. The traditional methods of working 3-4 hours a day in blocks of time didn't work for her so she created a system and strategy that works and used that to build her strategic coaching business that exists today! In her spare time, you can find her chatting biz strategy on her podcast, all things wellness (gotta keep that energy up) and raising her twins!

 

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • Holly's journey to entrepreneurship
  • Her 3 strategies for building a business while working full time
  • Her biggest piece of advice for busy moms who are trying to grow their online business
