When business coach Bailey Richert became fed up with life in the corporate rat race, she was not content to stay in a rut, complain or simply tolerate the situation. Being the rock star that she is, she took action…..BIG action!
She quit her 9-to-5 job, studied entrepreneurship at MIT and achieved her goal of starting a business that would allow her to make money and live life on her own terms.
And entrepreneurs everywhere should be grateful because Bailey has created a program that inspires and teaches beginning and budding entrepreneurs exactly what steps to take to launch profitable businesses of […]
I’m in the mood to offer a nice big dose of VALUE, so buckle up!
You already know that your website has the power to make or break your success. One of the KEY ingredients website visitors search your website for is… credibility. Proof that you actually know what you’re doing. So today, I offer you…

Your website design can’t suck.
I’ve said it countless times before, but you need to have the kind of website that you’re PROUD to show off. You may not “hate” your design, but are you head over heels in love with it? […]
I don’t know about you but I can hardly believe it’s the New Year already!!
I’m sure you’ve been getting clobbered with emails and other types of content about achieving your goals, so I’m not going to write about that today. You’ve got that handled.
Instead, I want to share a few things I’m focused on … and kick off the New Year with simply a means to reconnect.
In 2016, here are a few things I’m focused on (and this may help with your planning too!):
4-minute Fast Track Videos
In 2.5 hours last week, I sat down and knocked out 24 videos to […]
Promoting an event or product launch requires more than just good writing skills. It also requires timing! After all, a live webinar does you little good if no one attends, right? But, since your list is filled with loyal, eager fans of your work, all you have to do is time the emails effectively and – you’ve got an audience!
An effective email promotion requires three parts, and when done right, can produce amazing results. The key is to build expectations and excitement for your event, and this 3-step format does this exceptionally well. How do I know this? Because this […]
We’re back for Part III of our latest WordPress Website Design series – How to Create a Membership Website!
Now that you’ve chosen the type of membership website you’d like to offer, and the price point you’d like to create, it’s time to decide how your clients can access your site. Once again, you have choices to make that allow you to determine whether your members have access to everything immediately, or if your content will be presented on a month-by-month basis.
Membership website structure
Yearly Membership Website: Whichever structure you choose to use, you can create all of your content in […]
Today is social media day! (Not globally recognized or anything, it’s just the topic I want to give you specific training on today.)
A client of ours has been posting a new video to YouTube on a weekly basis, but wasn’t exactly getting the results she’d hoped for. I was SO proud of her for making this effort… naturally, music to my ears! When I logged into her account, I saw that she was missing MAJOR opportunities for exposure.
I want to address that… plus a few other social media tips that will dramatically give you a boost!
The major area this client […]
In my recent post, WordPress Website Design – How to Create a Membership Website – Part I, I provided guidance on choosing the website structure that is best for you. Now it’s time to dive into content creation (it’s a BIGGIE!).
Creating content for your membership website should be a process similar to any other content you’re creating. It should be high-value, varied and easy to access. You can create videos, blog posts, expert articles, slideshows, infographics, monthly Q&A calls, expert interviews and even feature guest bloggers who may receive a percentage of the monthly membership fees (this allows you […]
As entrepreneurs, we all know just how often life can interfere with the work we’ve chosen. There are just so many distractions for online entrepreneurs to cope with, especially when working from home. In fact, Pamela Zimmer recently asked about this in one of my Authentic Leader Q&A sessions.
“When you know what your purpose is, you’re passionate about it and know you’re on the right path….how do you stay motivated and productive when everything seems to take longer than you’d hoped?”
Gosh, have any of you NOT dealt with this?
Daily Planning & Scheduling
The first thing I do to keep focused […]
There are many ways to monetize a website, one of the best being a membership site. I like to think of this type of website as a library of content, or a sort of Supercenter for content, that allows you to charge for access to a variety of training materials related to your industry. I’ve set up literally dozens of membership websites over the past few years, including half-a-dozen for myself, as well as for clients.
The most common way to set up this type of site is to charge a monthly fee for access to the website. However, there are […]
In a previous post, I shared how you can generate income streams for yourself through affiliate programs. Now it’s time to think about setting yourself up for even more success by creating your own affiliate program, and letting others do some of your work for you. Sounds good, right?
As your business begins to grow and you create more products, programs and services, you will also be creating opportunities for yourself (and your tribe!) to begin earning income from them. As your menu grows, along with your audience and your list, you can begin to offer people the opportunity to help you […]
