Laura is a breast cancer recovery coach who wanted to reach a bigger audience, build an elegant online brand, and escape the overhead of her brick-and-mortar business. But trying to to get her business online was confusing and overwhelming.
“I felt like I had money going out in every direction...oftentimes that led me to stop pushing forward with my business because I wasn’t sure what I should do.”
She was listening to podcasts, going to conferences, and working with coaches who weren’t able to get her where she wanted to go.
“I got my business up and running. I got my website up and running. I got a course. I got a membership program. I could brand it... I could be marketable...and I wasn't constantly looking for ways to get people to understand what I do, or get people to understand why they should work with me.
Within my first year, I more than tripled what I invested in The Visionary Planner.
Instead of my original plan to launch two times a year, I launched four times because people kept coming and asking for it. And people that finished wanted to keep working with me, so I added on a membership on the back end.
I made a little over $10,000 on my first launch. One weekend, I was out with my husband and I said, ‘I finally feel it. I'm finally feeling that there's freedom in this business. It’s working.’”
The bottom line:
“I would tell anyone who asks and is interested in starting their own business, or struggling to get online, to get The Visionary Planner. You need a process. You need to rein in all those thoughts in the very beginning. You're all over the place. You need a step-by-step plan.
