Brand You Personal Branding

An exercise that I like to do with people in my mastermind and with myself every couple of years is to imagine my three best days. I realized a while back how many of us live with our heads down. We get so caught up in our work that we lose sight of why we’re even doing it. The three best days exercise helps me get recentered on what’s important. Once I realize what my best days are, I can create a life that allows for more of them.

In this episode, I’m sharing with all of you one of my best days. It includes having conversations with my parents around the dining room table. Having the margin to spend more time with family is one of the best things about having this business. I hope our conversation provides value for you and gives you a glimpse of my life outside of work.

I believe that no matter how much of an expert you are, it’s okay to admit that you have coaches and people who help you, too. Jay Abraham is that mentor for me. He is a marketing legend and one of the people who gives me a glimpse of the life I hope to embody one day. Because of that, this episode is a mix of an interview and the tail end of a coaching call.

It is so important that we never stop being hungry and always keep our eyes, ears, hearts, and mind open. This conversation really opened my heart and mind to a lot of different things and I know you will be able to take value from it, too. Listen in and you will hear:

  1. How Jay has seen entrepreneurs get in their own way
  2. How solopreneurs can reach that next level where they do less work and make more impact
  3. The power of strategic alliances
  4. How Jay built his brand
  5. How to establish greater brand currency
  6. Why it’s important to learn from your clients
  7. The advantages of charging what you’re worth in the right scenarios
  8. What “grow or die” really means

You may have heard the saying numbers don’t lie. It’s true. If that’s the case, I don’t understand why so many personal brand builders, entrepreneurs, and freelancers avoid our numbers.

 

That’s why I brought Jim Adams onto the show. Jim is a consultant and brick and mortar business owner who believes that in order to effectively scale your business, you need to know your numbers. He has helped hundreds of small business owners go to the next level in their businesses. Over the last year, he also grew his own pavilion business by 80%.

 

We all need to treat our businesses with the same respect and seriousness that we would if we owned a brick and mortar business. So, in this episode, Jim helps us understand how he grew his own brick and mortar during a global pandemic and shares his knowledge and insight around numbers. Tune in to hear:

  1. What numbers the everyday entrepreneur needs to know
  2. When to start looking at your numbers
  3. How to assess if and when to cut off a product that’s not profitable
  4. When to start hiring for your personal brand
  5. What to focus on first as a start-up
  6. Tried and true business principles for every kind of entrepreneur
  7. How to build relationships

In this very interesting episode, I’m sharing a snippet from a coaching call with one of my clients, Nick Cavuoto. He asked me how to target a market who’s earning a certain revenue number. That’s a great starting point question, but I wanted to unpack the huge difference between making $120,000 and $300,000. It’s not different because of the revenue number but because of how that money is made. Very few people in the personal brand industry talk about how to get from one revenue level to the next. I feel a responsibility, though, to give you the overall picture so you know which path to take. Tune in to hear me talk about:

 

  1. An overview of my first few years in this business.
  2. What adding live events did to my revenue.
  3. The power of partnerships in accelerating your brand.
  4. Being the jelly to your partners’ peanut butter.
  5. The shiny object syndrome.
  6. Why just buying products and courses won’t get you anywhere.
  7. Finding your unique peg to stand on.
