20 minutes of stage time can turn into thousands of dollars — It just happened for me!

Be Heard, Business Success, Get booked as a speaker, Measuring Results No Comments

What if you could turn 20 minutes of stage time into thousands of dollars?

What could happen for you?

Last Friday, I was fortunate to take the stage for 20 minutes at a live event that was attended by aspiring speakers up to big things.

There were 36 people in the audience of whom two were already my clients. When the talk was over, 31 of them had rushed to the back of the room to make a purchase from me.

31 buyers from 34 potential clients represents a 91% conversion rate!

This was the right audience for my message about making your speaker one-sheet rock. BELOW is access to a clip from the 20 minute talk I gave from Mark Grainger and Shannon Law’s Big Impact Speaker event.

I brought my full, quirky essence to their stage, delivered content that served a specific need for their audience, and was fortunate to be introduced in such a powerful way that the audience was set up to fall in love at ‘hello.’

I hope this inspires you to take stages in service to your perfect audience so you can welcome results that delight you, while boosting your confidence big time.

This brings me to a few questions for you.

>> What specifically are you doing to get yourself booked on live and virtual stages?

>> Are you reaching out to decision makers?

>> Are you hosting your own live or virtual events?

If you do nothing, nothing happens. And when you ask for what you want and take action, amazing things can unfold for your audience, for you, and also for the marketplace.

What is it going to be for you?

If you’d like to learn more about how to make speaking rock for your best audience with your best message front and center, I’ll be interviewing Shannon Law via BeLive.TV on July 11 at 3 p.m. Pacific from my business fan page.  Join us and bring along some of your speaker and expert friends!  The more, the merrier!

This is a generous clip from my talk from Mark and Shannon's Big Impact Speaker event from last Friday. The way they introduced me touched my heart in a big way and the audience enjoyed my talk. It cuts off near the end because my phone storage was at capacity. That is a lesson learned for the next time. >> Check phone storage before recording the next big gig. Oy!

I am such a fire starter!

Be Heard, Business Success No Comments

I am such a fire starter!

Last week, I hosted a VIP Raise Your Voice – Make Your Impact Dinner Mastermind in Portland, Oregon.

I reached out to the ‘movers and shakers’ in the industry who live and work in that city and extended an invitation for them to join me for dinner around a conference table.

Why?

Two reasons:

>> I wanted to make the most of my trip to Portland, Oregon as I was the featured guest speaker for eWomenNetwork.

>> I love connecting and creating across the dining room table. It’s my favorite way to serve so  why not do what I love and see what magic can be co-created to the success of others and for myself, too!

The event was magical in so many ways.

It turns out that many of the experts in the room were “Facebook Live Virgins.”  I took matters into my own hands to slay that dragon right away as I saw, heard, and celebrated every guest around the table in a spontaneous Facebook Live Broadcast direct from our boardroom.  We even broke into song as we introduced everyone and her or his big mission to all who watched us live and continue to enjoy the replay.

Most notable for me is that so many of my ‘mover and shaker’ guests were inspired by the event to the point that they decided to do Facebook LIVE interviews about their own ‘aha’ insights and take-away lessons.

This awesome event idea I cooked up served up a reason for luminaries to speak up, show up, and inspire their tribes, too.  I am awe-struck about this. Here are links to their live broadcasts so you can meet them, too.

Kathleen Gage’s FB Live

Patti Keating’s FB Live

Marcia Bench’s FB Live

If you are a ‘mover and a shaker’ up to big things and want to join the Raise Your Voice – Make Your Impact conversation,  I am leading three additional events like this throughout this summer in Newport Beach, CA and Bellevue and Bellingham, WA.

July 27 – Newport Beach, CA

August 23 – Bellevue, WA

August 31 — Bellingham, WA 

When you make your $97 seat reservation, you’ll get “Raise Your Voice – Make Your Impact” inspiration instantly.

You’ll receive your digital copy of the ever-popular and super useful Bye-Bye Boring Bio Workbook plus a bundle of 5 audio masterclasses to support  you in boosting your credibility, authority, Bio Wow Factor, visibility, and improving your skills as a master of new client enrollment. This is a $297 bundle of awesomeness that  delivers instantly to your inbox.

At the dinner event, you’ll also:

  • Take the Get Ready, Get Known, Get Paid QUIZ to know where you stand so you can plot your best next steps forward;
  • Get introduced to the “Get Known in Your Own Backyard and Beyond” System to guide you to the visibility, credibility, authority, and opportunities you most desire;
  • Be inspired to craft a ‘virtual cocktail napkin’ of awesomeness that makes it easy for your ideal clients to say YES to your most compelling offers;
  • Learn how to use the ‘Signature Talk Delivery Cheat Sheet’ to give you confidence to deliver your message right every time, even in the clutch moments; and;
  • Learn to create and deliver an offer than converts from the live or virtual stage.

Every group is different. And when we gather with the intention to elevate our conversations as we raise our voices, we all get inspired to make big impact in service to those we are here to serve.

There are just 11 seats at every table to insure intimacy, connection, and impact.

Does one of them have YOUR NAME on it?

If you are a ‘mover and shaker’ who is darn serious about giving and receiving big value and connecting with like-minded experts and speakers up to big things, claim your place.

July 27 – Newport Beach, CA

August 23 – Bellevue, WA

August 31 — Bellingham, WA 

With so much bounty to be shared and just a few seats to offer at each event, this is for serious guests who are eager to give, receive and show up fully to benefit big time.

I hope to meet you one day very soon as we raise our voices and make some powerful, important noise!

Let the fire starting continue in a city near you.

6 Months of Powerful Lessons in 2016 — What are Yours?

Be Heard, Business Success, Good News, Public Speaking No Comments

With the first six months of 2016 coming to a close, I took to my journal to reflect on accomplishments achieved so far.  The most important part of this exercise is identifying what I have learned.

The lessons have been bountiful and humbling at the same time. I’ve decided to share my lessons on the blog so they might serve you, too.

  • After a breast cancer scare and a emergency retina repair surgery for my husband in March, I am reminded that the greatest of all blessings is good health.
  • Sometimes, a quarter turn of a message can make a world of difference.  I shifted much of my marketing messaging to focus on guiding aspiring speakers to get ready for opportunity before opportunity knocks early this year. I still speak from my expertise as a business bio expert, though the slight messaging shift has made a world of difference in my business results.  This audience urgently desires to get booked and often can monetize their messages in the moment with their powerful and authentic offers made from the stage.  That makes getting to return on investment on my training so much more immediate for them and so rewarding for me.
  • I love when clients succeed. Broadcasting their brilliance via my ezine and other means is the best demonstration of what it is to be a champion of others’ success.  Everyone wins.
  • Stop telling stories that are no longer true.  “You are not a speaker” has been my inner dialogue. However, this year, I have given the same talk 22 times to appreciative audiences. Whether I was invited to share it via teleclass, webinar or live or created my own opportunities to share it, I am a speaker.
  • Sharing stories is so much more memorable and compelling than sharing action tips and information.  Going forward, I am going below the surface to share the vulnerable stories and powerful insights from the wisdom of hard won experience instead of speaking just ‘from the neck up.’
  • With the right speaker and authentic championship, filling a room doesn’t have to be hard. I have heard many people say that it is hard to fill live events.  I have been reluctant to host my own as a result.  In March of this year, I played a major role in filling a hotel room with 38 awesome guests who could be in the house to benefit from one of my most trusted and admired business colleagues.  The guests  raved about the value, and a meaningful group of those guests decided to invest more deeply to get even more support.  I may very well host my own local and live events and workshops after all!
  • SHOWING UP IN PERSON is fun and rewarding. I’ve relied on teleclasses and webinars to deliver my message over the last few years.  What a thrill it is to look into the eyes of those I meet and know in my heart, head, and gut whether the message is landing squarely. I can’t wait to speak live and in person to even more groups this year and next in my own backyard and beyond.
  • Boundary setting is a beautiful thing.  That means “No” can be a complete sentence.  Not all invitations are “YES” decisions.  Not everyone who wants to be a partner, co-collaborator, or referral source is a fit to play that role.  That is OK.
  • Give your clients and best partners the benefit of the doubt.  When people have the CONTEXT over time to value a pattern of ongoing contribution, service, and championship, there is GRACE in that. There should always be room for the benefit of the doubt.
  • People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.  It stings when things don’t last.  As long as I go deep to find the blessing in each transition, I can be twice blessed.BethePersonMyDogThinksIam_n

How to Create Revenue “In the Meantime”

Business Success, Joint Ventures No Comments

Over the last 40 days or so, I’ve had my head down, creating a new way to serve. That meant applying a high level of laser focus on the new initiative that — even for me — was uncommon. Here is one thing about this that I think is pretty remarkable.

>> I didn’t worry about money for a moment during the creation process.

Why? I strategically lent support to the products and programs of luminaries whose work I use and know to be outstanding. I referred enough new business to them as their champion and partner so my own money needs were more than taken care of IN THE MAILBOX in thanks for my quality referrals.

If you are someone who finds yourself in that “rock and a hard place” position where your products, programs and services are not yet done or perfect, you can still serve and profit in the meantime.

It is a matter of championing the ALREADY PROVEN offerings of leaders you admire in perfect timing to build that bridge to revenue while you get the rest of your own act together. It pays off. And it does my heart good to know that and share that good news with you.

If you would like to learn how, get know touch with me by email at nancy@getknowngetpaid.com, or send me a note with “Revenue In the Meantime” in the subject line so I can get back to you.  Talk soon!

Are you a Hobbyist, or a Business Owner? Business Building Expert Melinda Cohan Weighs In

Business Success No Comments

Today’s guest blog post comes to you from  Business Building Coach and Coaches Console Co-Founder Melinda Cohan.

melinda-250-250

Are you a Hobbyist, or a Business Owner?

Do you even know?

Do you even realize how this one, single insight can impact the level of success you have in your business and with your coaching?

If you don’t know this answer or don’t even realize the importance of this distinction then you may be hitting upper limits of your level of success and not even realize it. If that is the case then no matter how great your efforts, no matter how impeccable you implement the best strategies you will not be seeing the results you desire.

There are two potential levels at which you can participate in pursuing your passion as a coach. That of a Hobbyist. That of a Business Owner.

Hobbyists can articulate a general direction for their business. They grasp the idea of business discipline, but tend to think it’s too early to get it fully under control — or feel they don’t have time. Hobbyists’ planning, goals, priority-setting and sense of business purpose also tend to be less focused, more difficult to understand.

Business Owners, on the other hand, can clearly define how they will make a difference in the world, and who they will serve. They know it takes a thriving, profitable business to create that difference. Far more than Hobbyists, they have practical, well-grounded faith in the discipline and the systems that build greatness in any business. Because they are clear and specific, Business Owners’ strategies, articulation, priorities, choices, goals and even words have more impact.

Are you a Hobbyist, or a Business Owner?

How The Hobbyist Will Experience The Business of Coaching:

  • Business and client support is reactive versus proactive. They figure out the answers as they go.
  • Jack of all, master of none
  • Provide the support to their clients on a situational basis. Things are unique to each client and situation and often done differently each time. There is customization in how they support and work with their clients because the hobbyist only coaches when they want to coach.
  • Run their business manually with limited technologies and support resources. They aren’t necessary since they sporadically do marketing and support clients.
  • Coach few clients and continue to dream of having a deeper impact on the world.

How The Business Owner Will Experience The Business of Coaching.

  • Build a strong foundation up front for their business.
  • Collaborate with great people to leverage their own time.
  • Use the right technologies, tools and resources to simplify and automate tasks that don’t produce new business directly.
  • Use effective internal (and integrated) systems.
  • Use their systems consistently.
  • Coach more clients, make more money, and make a far greater difference in the world.

Both types are great coaches. Since founding The Coaches Console in 2004, we have also learned that Hobbyists share the dream, but not the discipline. Business Owners are different; they take enlightened, disciplined action to make their dreams, and many more clients’ dreams, come true. It’s vital to your success to know which approach you desire and which approach you are taking each moment. Otherwise growing your business will seem like you are pushing a boulder up a hill.

It’s understandable if, as a Business Owner, you feel overwhelmed sometimes. There’s so much to learn, such an array of new skills to master. You’d be less than human to feel otherwise! Hobbyists feel that pressure too. The difference is in how they respond. Hobbyists think they need to learn every single thing, as in everything. They never will, of course, but they beat themselves up for not knowing it all, and even for having just “average” skills.

Really, the Hobbyist’s response to pressure is a kind of perfectionism: Like all forms of that Holy Grail, it’s not reachable. Not on this planet, anyway. Still, on and on the Hobbyists go, endlessly expecting what amounts to a long list of daily miracles, then blaming themselves for endlessly falling short.

Business Owners don’t attempt the impossible. Their outlook is a lot more useful, and healthier, especially on two points:

1) They’ve learned to be profoundly comfortable with the discomfort that accompanies life as an entrepreneur (it means we’re living at our edge and outside of our comfort zones).

2) They focus on their greatest strengths, and find systems, tools and experts (assistants) to help them with the things they don’t do as well. They don’t waste time trying to learn things they’ll never be good at. Instead, they “leverage their community,” surrounding themselves – from the outset — with experts and resources.

Every single part of Hobbyists’ business carries the same weight. They haven’t identified specific actions that bring new clients, business growth and income. Stress and pressure drive Hobbyists back into their comfort zone, where they keep on spending all their time and energy on the same things – the activities they know how to do and/or love to do. Business Owners, on the other hand, understand that running a business means wearing many hats, and that some actions help build your income a lot more than others. They know how to choose which hat to wear, and when.

Hobbyists know they need to market. They do learn specific strategies and try them out, here and there. But they don’t do it consistently enough, and they don’t create a system to help them market and sell.   Business Owners take a different view. They know marketing is the lifeblood of a healthy, vibrant practice. To them, “marketing” is a description, just a header referring to a more specific idea that they find far more important and exciting: Marketing is a conversation. It’s a way of helping others by sharing a great tool with them. And wanting to tell them!

Business Owners think differently, choosing a “One-to-Many” mindset.  That means they realize that, to double their practice, serve more clients and charge higher fees, they must leverage their relationships. So they build strong networks and partner with like-minded colleagues.

So are you a hobbyist or a business owner? The real question is: are you reaching the level of success you desire? If you are, then exactly where you are – hobbyist or business owner –  is perfect. If not, take a closer look at the distinction to identify where you are and where you want to be. Then place your attention on closing that gap. As you do you will begin to have the desired impact you wish to have on this world.

Are you ready to become the Business Owner you know you can be so your business can make it’s biggest impact?  If your answer is yes, we invite you to educating and equipping yourself with what it means to be a business owner. This series of videos will begin that education and provide you with immediate actions you can take today!

Try it out. You will soon know if you are a Hobbyist or a Budding Business Owner.

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!

Jeanna Gabellini is a Master Business Coach who supports conscious entrepreneurs to double (and even triple) their profits by leveraging attraction principles, proven strategies and fun. She is co-author of Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction, which she wrote with Eva Gregory, Mark Victor Hansen & Jack Canfield.

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.
