Recently, I read a story about a person who spent over 200k on coaches and courses - trying to build her online business. While the information did help her to some extent, it didn't produce the kind of six-figure income she'd hoped for. Not even close. When you hear a story like this, you may think, "I'd never do that!" Maybe not 200k, but the pattern is there. It's unmistakable.
Two decades ago, I was facing the same, basic challenges many of you are facing right now. I was trying to compete with the "big dogs" in my marketplace. I was trying to look BIGGER than I was. I was trying to look more ESTABLISHED than I was. Sometimes, things would just click and I'd get a bunch of work in (website design and development + email marketing contracts).
Then, a few months later... the work would dry up. And my income along with it. I spent a lot of time lost in my head trying to figure things out. My ideas seemed to work on paper a lot better than they did in reality. Each month the game would start all over again. Some months were okay, and some were really bad.
Still, I didn't lose hope. Do you know why?
Because the clients I did have really liked me. They really appreciated the work I did for them. Some of them even invited me out for lunch and dinner. Others sent gifts on occasion during the holidays.
But... and here's the clincher - the classic marketing approach that seemed to work for just about everyone else wasn't working for me.
I did. I removed myself from all the "marketing advice gurus" of the day and went into the "wilderness" (so to speak). The WILDERNESS is the barren place that separates your past from your future. It's the place of personal transformation... where we let go of the old so we can step into the new. This is where my approach to Personal Brand Marketing was born.
Until this time, I was chalking up all the failures to bad timing, the marketplace, the economy, etc. Truth be told - I'd always felt (up until that point) that something was missing from my overall approach to business. I just had a hard time admitting it. Something always felt a bit off. Like only half my cylinders were firing. All of that changed when I moved from a product-centric approach to a people-centric one. You might say, "People before processes." Or, "Individuals over groups."
Products and services may come and go. But the people who the solutions, help and guidance remain etched in our thoughts for years to come. This mindset complete transformed my strategy from the ground up - and to this day, continues to transform my business in the process.
Plus: Email/Inbox mentoring to help you implement these strategies and systems in your own business.
Some things stay, most thing go. Get the right foundation in place. From there, everything become easier.

An easier way to combine marketing and sales into a single strategy and activity
Your ongoing, weekly activity. Your personal "push-up solution." Combine many activities into ONE.
I've enjoyed a successful online career that now spans 20+ years. It took time to really learn and understand how all the pieces fit together, but that’s what I did. Afterward, I was able to do the same for my clients. I was amazed to find so many talented entrepreneurs and business owners out there who just can’t connect with enough people to succeed in their marketplace. Others in the same market, with inferior products or services, are making 10x the income – just because they knew how to get their name out there.
“Changing that is what motivates me today. That’s the mission I'm committed to.”

I do not offer refunds on coaching or mentoring services. I am here to help guide you to the highest level possible. Part of that is requiring a commitment from you so you are fully invested in this program. When refunds are an option, you can have “one foot in” the work, and “one foot out” the door. It is to your benefit to decide BEFORE purchasing the package and committing to work with me that I am the right coach for you. If you’re in, you need to be 100% in, just as I will be 100% for you.
If you've listened to my podcast or have read my blog articles, you're familiar with my style. This course is an extension of both and is based upon my 20+ years of experience. The principles and strategies you'll learn in THIS course will stand the test of time.
The basics are all you'll need to get started. You'll need your own website (preferably "yourname.com" or something similar (.me, etc.). You'll need a simple list building system (Mailer Lite, Moosend, MailChimp and others have free versions up to so many members). That's about it. You won't have to talk your spouse or significant other into making any major purchases.
