Five Practices to Increase Profits Without Stress – Double Your Profits and Fun Expert Jeanna Gabellini

Business Success No Comments

jv-jeannajvWhen your main focus is on increasing profits and expanding the reach of your marketing it’s incredibly easy to be taken down a dozen rabbit holes each day. There are so many marketing, leadership and small business experts giving abundant strategies to grow your business that it creates an obstacle course of to-dos for the average entrepreneur.

If you’ll think less of implementing the 101 profit ideas you have and give more time to the following five, simple practices, you’ll find that you’ll have less stress and more profits without trying.

Your mind will want to divert you, but don’t give in. Profitable businesses use some version of the following practices and have results to prove their power.

1. Always begin each brainstorming session, networking conversation or task knowing exactly what you want to get out of it. Never just show up and plunge into the task at hand without sitting down and giving conscious thought to your ideal outcome for each segment of your day.

2. Tap into your Inner Business Expert several times each day. Most people save their spiritual connection and intuition for after work-hours or when there is a crisis. When you decide to partner with your inner guidance, your business genius will be at full power. You can access out-of-the-box solutions, create new products and services, and feel at peace no matter how chaotic things might appear.

3. Ask yourself, “How can I make this more fun, easier and increase profitability?” It’s amazing what can happen when you ask yourself a powerful RockYourProfitsJeannaBookCover_ninquiry. It’s even better when you use this question to make an already good thing even better. Go through all the main areas of your business at least once a month and use this inquiry. And don’t forget to connect with your Inner Business Expert before you answer.

4. Use the talent and expertise of others. You may be brilliant at several things but there are other people who can put a different spin on what you’re already doing and you can change your entire market place. When pondering your newest offering or tweaking a system, ask colleagues how they might improve what you’re doing. It’s best to use this practice before things go haywire. Join masterminds and get coached by people who freely share their information. Yes, you’ll have to ask questions that expose your weaknesses but you’ll be rewarded handsomely.

5. Stretch yourself. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of only doing what you need to get by. Challenge yourself every week to go beyond what’s normal for you. If you never give services and products away, do it. If you give everything away, stop … charge more. Use new technology to simplify the way you market or deliver your goods and services. Hire a coach that will cause you to think HUGE. Hire someone to help you market, file, or do customer care … before you think you can afford it! Commit yourself fully to a project that scares the pants off you (because YOU CAN handle it!).

How can one of these practices offer you more profits and less stress? Share with me below!

14 Year Business Anniversary Today – Lessons Learned About Success

Business Success No Comments

tnhwizardofoz0018Today is my 14-year business anniversary. I am still here, and I have learned so much.  Here are some of my favorite lessons around success, inspired by one of my favorite classic films of all time — The Wizard of Oz.

1. You don’t have to fly over the rainbow to get much of what you want. Most of the new business, media coverage and speaking invitations you seek can be found in your own backyard.
2. Don’t let “blue bird envy” stand in your way. Wishing and hoping doesn’t get the job done. Get into action today to earn the attention and opportunities you seek for your message and your unique brand of brilliance.
3. Urgent problems and big news always ring loud and clear – Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.
4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help to get what you need. Good witches and mentors are everywhere — if you just ask the local munchkins for quality recommendations.
5. Along the yellow brick road to success, don’t settle for Munchkin Land when the Land of Oz is what you really want. Think big about what you want to accomplish.  Reach high to attract the perfect premium clients, speaking gigs, joint venture partners, and media opportunities that can advance your message, offer more opportunities to share your expertise, and escalate your revenues and profitability to new heights.
6. Frame your message as a horse of a different color so it stands apart.
7. Choose local color to invite memorable and remarkable photo opportunities.
8. There is no place like home. Start your efforts to attract the premium opportunities you seek close to home.
9. Earn loyal friends, fans and followers with every step you take. That will go a long way to lend strength and momentum to your business building effort here and beyond, today and forever.
10. Put your best dress on and your best face forward before you make your approach.
11. Collaborate with a quality team when making your best impact.
12. Celebrate new media and embrace new tools. If the crystal ball isn’t delivering the solutions and information you need, find alternative ways learn what you need to know to carry your message forward. You are not in Kansas anymore.
13. There will be forks in the road and different paths to take along your journey to take on a bigger platform or reinvent from what you used to do to what you are doing now. Make a choice, put some spring in your step, and have some fun along the way.
14. It takes brains, courage, and heart to make your message stand out and to stay with it.
15. You have to be willing to put up with things that get in your way, like angry apples, flying monkeys, wicked witches, and sleep-inducing poppies.
16. Don’t easily surrender Dorothy. Be willing to fight for the results you want.
17. Never underestimate the power of a sassy pair of shoes to boost your confidence when selling an idea, leading an enrollment conversation, pitching a story or doing anything that really matters in your life or work.
18. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” You have more power to make things happen in your business than you ever thought possible. You just have to look in your bag of tricks to find the right tools and resources to the get the mission accomplished. And you have to use them.

Set your course, make your plans, and journey forward with quality effort and the conviction to achieve the success you seek. Just as Dorothy discovered, you can make a lot of magic happen if you just click your heels together and get to work.

In honor of my business anniversary, I created a special “Get Your Client Attracting Story Done Success System” to guide aspiring experts to get that mission accomplished.   Read all about it and take action so you can can stand in and on your true value. You can feel even more confident in your offerings, and you can charge more for your expertise. That is the ultimate value of getting this done.  The sale is in progress through Friday, February 6, 2014 at midnight.

My Work Is So Much Bigger & Bolder Than the Bio

Business Success No Comments

4171670-hand-holding-a-burning-match-on-black-backgroundBeing so well known as the go-to expert for making bios better is a great thing. And as the New Year gets underway, I am present to a truth that needs to be called out. This work is so much bigger and bolder than the bio.  It’s where we start, and it is JUST the beginning.

How my journey serves you:

I started out as a top publicist and marketer for people and companies with big names who wanted to go big in the media. I proved my value in that role until the Great Recession dished up other plans. In 2008, I reinvented as a business bio expert and Get Known to Get Paid mentor to navigate a new marketplace in a more relevant way. Speaking/training and leading intimate group events have always been part of my approach to build buzz and business. I started leading teleclasses and webinars and learned to moderate private Facebook groups like a pro. I even hosted a live event or two that attracted 100 people each time.

Having trained with the best to learn Education Based Marketing and how to design and deliver talks that convert to leads, sales, and fill live VIRTUAL group events, I am happy to report that my Worldwide Virtual Get Your Client Attracting Story Done Workshop graduated 600 people in 2014.  Dozens of Get Known to Get Paid Private Mentoring Program clients are getting known and getting paid in big, bold ways with my unwavering championship and support.

Clients tell me that their results are so much bigger than the bio. They find their voices. They discover confidence to serve that they didn’t know they had. They step up and out in big ways to make impact, grow influence, and accelerate their income. I ignite their courage, and that is HUGE.

Over time, I turned into a very capable list builder – growing my list from 180 – 18000+ loyal followers and champions in a few years.  In fact, I have become a Rock Star JV Partner for some of the biggest names in the coaching/personal development arena and am described as a “JV Leaderboard Topping Angel” by some of them.

In doing all of this, I have also proven myself to be someone who knows how to:

== Create and sell information products online

== Create Facebook ads that deliver and convert leads

== Explain business models that can work for service businesses and how to build them;

== Deploy tools such as 1 Shopping Cart, Constant Contact, LeadPages, Stealth Seminar, prReach, WordPress, and Instant Teleseminar to support all of these activities.

I’ve come a long way in the space between my ears to work on my MINDSET, and I’ll never be done with that. And, I am still a Cracker Jack publicist, though this is a tool in my online marketing tool chest now instead of the main dish as it was when I started.

It’s been a full circle kind of journey, and the best part of all of this is that I run a profitable online business from my home office with my dog at my feet. I serve amazing clients from around the world to guide them to get ready, known, and paid for their winning ways. 

All this is to say that if you dream it, you can do it. 

You just have to I.G.N.I.T.E. Courage.

I – Identify Big Intention for Big Impact.
G – Game Plan Creation.
N – Name Desired Results.
I – Initiate Inspired Action.
T – Take Tenacious Steps Over Time to Make the Big Intention True.
E – Express the Message in Action, Word, an Deed with Enthusiasm, Commitment, Conviction, and COURAGE. Execute. Evaluate. Return to Start at Regularly Scheduled Intervals to Refine, Recalibrate, and Refocus.

What is YOUR big intention for big impact? 

Please share and declare.  And if I can be of support to guide your successful journey, get in touch. Send me email at Nancy@authenticvisibility.com.  The next session of the Worldwide Virtual Get Your Client Attracting Story Done Workshop starts tomorrow.  Have you claimed your place?  The bonus bundle I have assembled will turn your head in a big way, and it vanishes at midnight tonight.  Take a look and dig deep to say YES.  Your bio and a whole lot more are hanging in the balance.  And action takes you forward.  Standing still … well, not so much.

“Be a Pit Bull for Your Life and Your Time” and Other Tips for the New Year

Business Success No Comments

While doing my annual “ditch it or keep it” file clearing, I found an email from Feb. 11, 2007 with some useful tips.  They are STILL very timely for the welcome of a shiny New Year.

  • Avoid toxic people.  Bless them and release them.
  • Rediscover the “delete” key.  Two emails, and you are done.
  • Say “no” within three minutes.  Say something like, “This isn’t an ideal fit for me right now” or “I’m not in a position to take on that project right now.”
  • Only take A+, values-aligned clients.
  • Not everyone has to like you.
  • Protect your time like your life depends on it — because it does. 
  • Be a pit bull for your life and your time.
  • Define the qualities of an ideal client.
  • Define what is not acceptable and stay true to those standards.
  • Set specific boundaries for how much time you give away to people.
  • Revisit pricing to make sure it is on target for the work, like, and clients you want.
  • Specify the mix of work you want, and go get it.
  • Keep track of your book of business by revenue stream.
  • Keep your eye on the ball at all times.

What tips can you add to the list?  Bring them on!

Brilliant Bio Now Gift Template Helps Business Owners Refresh Their First Impression Fast

Be Heard, Bye-Bye Boring Bio Success Story No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Bellevue, WA — With a shiny New Year debuting soon, Business Bio Expert Nancy Juetten says now is the nancy-orange-background (3)time to refresh business bios for optimal client attraction in 2015.

“You really can create know-like-trust at first glance without speaking a word when you let your client-attracting business bio do the talking,” Juetten says.

Today, the solutions to what so many consumers and potential clients are looking for can be found in a quick internet search. The message that comes up quickly can make the difference between picking up the phone, sending an email, or clicking away – never to be seen or heard from again.

That is why creating know-like-trust in your expertise at first glance matters. After all, when potential clients are seeking solutions to problems, they look for proven experts with whom they can wisely invest to give them relief to whatever is ailing them. Whether clients are seeking investment advice, medical care, or eyelash extensions, decisions to engage are often made in an instant based on the information found with the click of a mouse.

Brilliant Bio Template FB Ad 2015Since first impressions are crucial, Juetten is offering her proven Brilliant Bio Now Template as a free download for a limited time.

She also shares 8 tips for business owners to make that first glance count.

== Declare your intention to be major in your field with every social media profile, bio box, and speaker introduction.

“Showcase the expertise you want to be known for in front of your name.” Juetten recommends. “That makes it a lot easier for potential clients to find you in an internet search and through the referrals of champions who understand your expertise well enough to recommend you to others.”

== Convey credibility and a pattern of success over time.

Juetten says that stunning, decisive results are the reason clients invest wisely to benefit from products, programs, and services. “Showcase a consistent, ongoing pattern of accomplishments and relevant credentials to build confidence in your skills and talents and inspire an immediate desire to do business,” she advises.

== Pack your profile with pizzazz, personality and a philosophy of doing business.

“Clients invest in experts they know, like and trust, Juetten says. “Go beyond ‘blah, blah, blah’ and make sure to put YOU in the story. A statement of philosophy, concise and compelling quotes from happy clients, and a statement around your reason for doing this work can make your bio stand out and ring true.”

== Your photo matters.

== Be ready for opportunity whenever it knocks.

== Message consistency keeps buyer confusion at bay.

Juetten explains, “Make sure the stories you share across social media platforms, the ‘about me’ page on your website, and the home page of your website are consistent in communicating who you serve, how you help, and why the work matters. An inconsistent message is bound to confuse a potential buyer, and a confused buyer never buys.”

== Proofread.

== Share your story.

Juetten offers even more specifics and expert support to make business bios world-class and client attracting in an upcoming webinar that will share the 3 biggest bio blunders that even smart business owners make that prevent their ideal clients from hiring them.  Claim your place at www.brilliantbionow.com.

How to Go Premium in Your Business and Life – Starting Today

Attract High Paying Clients No Comments

I got up at 3 a.m. PST this morning to watch a video without interruptions. It was about how to change the character of my business by emphasizing high end clients. And while the information was review for me, it was a timely moment to take in the information again. I realize that I have been focusing on lower end offerings and working a lot harder than perhaps I need to.

2015 is a year to change that.

Does that resonate with you, too?

The trouble is, creating high end programs can be a little daunting.

Finding the juicy language, creating the various elements, even giving the program you create a results-based name…

Not to mention the confidence to charge your full value for the big impact you make.

That is why I want you to watch the video, too.

It will open your eyes about why “going premium” can be the single best thing you do to grow your business and change your life for the better in the New Year.

Get the inside scoop here.

== You’ll first receive a report about where to find high paying clients.
== And then you’ll gain immediate access to the video.

NancyandBill_nMake it a priority to check out both so you can get the medicine in a way that I believe will shift your thinking and set up your 2015 for premium clients ahead.

Can you say “game changer?” I don’t say this lightly, so listen, read, and take it all in. Do it today.

By the way, I worked privately with Bill Baren for all of 2011. It was his coaching that guided me to create the profitable business I run today. When we started our work together, I was truly at Square 1. That has changed for the better. I want that for you, too. Go get his “where to find high paying clients” report and most importantly, watch today’s video.

What Playing the Clarinet as a Kid Taught Me about Using My Voice … or Not

Be Heard, Business Success No Comments

As a kid growing up, my parents emphasized music and the arts.  The public schools made it easy for kids to participate, so when music classes were an option, my mom made sure that my sister and I were quickly enrolled.  She played the violin.  I played the clarinet.

Truth be told, what I wanted to play was the flute.  I liked the sound of it, and it wasn’t super loud.  But my dad played the clarinet when he was a kid and we had one in the house.  For budget reasons, the clarinet won the day.

26199094-little-girl-playing-clarinet-on-a-gray-wallI wasn’t super excited about it, but I was a good student, so I practiced a lot.  The trouble was we lived in a neighborhood where all the houses were really close together.  My bedroom window faced directly to the neighbor’s open garage where a bunch of teenage guys were always working on their cars. Here was the rub.  The clarinet is not an instrument you can play without blowing hard and making noise.  And when you are first learning, the noise is NOT pretty. 

Add to that, I would practice with the windows open — because I grew up in the San Fernando Valley — and it was always HOTTER than blazes — especially in the summer.  The kids next door would yell through the window to cut it out, hurry it up, or close the window.  It was not exactly the best environment to learn to make beautiful music.

I kept practicing, and step by step. the noise became music. The ribbing I took from the neighbors was just one more challenge to overcome as I stayed with it despite how embarrassed I was.  Step by step, I got a lot better as a musician.  At one time, I was “second chair” seated right next to the #1 guy who just happened to have a very expensive clarinet that sounded better, no matter how he played it.

So why do I tell you this story?

Playing the clarinet in close quarters is a bit like finding your own voice.  If you get encouraged, receive applause, and are recognized for your talent, it’s pretty swell.   But while you are learning all the “how to” bits, finding your style, refining your approach, and working on your technique and finesse, it is just NOT so swell.  You have to want the result enough to stick with it.  And that means a lot of practice, implementation, interpretation and a lot of “wash, rinse and repeat” to get it right.

I became present to this lesson and reflection over the weekend as I was revisiting my love of music while playing the electronic keyboard in my living room that simulates a grand piano. With a teenager downstairs and a husband in the other room, I was thinking to myself how glad I was that the keyboard offered VOLUME CONTROL  I didn’t want to annoy either of them with the imperfect notes of music practice. I didn’t want to be embarrassed about not getting it right.  And I sure as heck didn’t want neighbors walking their dogs outside to hear me and laugh — or worse.

Then, it occurred to me that I likely keep the volume low when I try new things in my business for the same reasons.  I play the 26199169-little-girl-playing-clarinet-on-a-wharfstudent far longer than I should as opposed to getting out there in a big way to speak my truth, wave the flag, and do my thing.

Here’s the lesson, and I need to embrace it. We are all on the path to mastery, and we are always getting better through practice, trial and error, success, and failure.   It’s the ongoing effort in pursuit of a worthy ideal that keeps life interesting.

So, if you experience me raising the volume around the work I do in the coming months and it feels or sounds clunky, loud, imperfect or awkward as I find my new groove, consider yourself warned.   I’ve got more music to make to make my best impact, and this girl won’t be stopped.  How about YOU?
