I've gotten several questions asking questions not only about my 90 Day Intensive Online Business Builder Mentoring Program, but also about my journey to become healthy and, while I've answered them individually, I thought you may have some of the same questions.
The personal question most asked is "What inspired [me] to do it [get healthy] now?"
And the answer, quite frankly, is that I ran out of excuses as to why I couldn't do it "now".
There was a time when I couldn't discuss my weight without crying and then I realized it. I have a process for everything in my business and there's no reason getting healthy couldn't be the same. So I hired an expert trainer and never looked back!
If you're interested in following my personal journey, you can read all about it on my personal blog here.
And now for all those other questions (answers below):
I'm not sure I have the time to do the Program.
- I'm a VA [virtual assistant], is this Program a good fit for me?
- I don't have hundreds of dollars a month (yet) to spend running my business, is it possible to build a business for less than that?
- Is the Mentoring Program tax deductible?
- I feel like I'm in overwhelm with all the information I have purchased or found in other places, plus the teleseminars I keep attending. When does a person just stop gathering?
- What happens if I miss a class?
- You mentioned that there are "assignments". Do I have to do them all?
- Will we be able to network with other group members and share experiences?
- I own a "brick and mortar" business and don't have an online presence. Is this Program for me?
- I have a website, but I'm not getting any sign-ups to my list. Will you show me how to get consistent sign-ups?
- I currently have a product for sale, but no one is buying it. Can you help me with that?
Do you think this program is too basic for me?
Questions with answers:
Q. I'm not sure I have the time to do the Program.
A. If you're not implementing quickly now and don't think you can find the time, you have to ask yourself if owning a successful business is what you really want — whether now or later, you will need to invest time to build your business. If not "now", "when"? There is no magic pill.
Q. I'm a VA [virtual assistant], is this Program a good fit for me?
A. Absolutely! The Program is perfect for VAs for two reasons: 1/ You are an "online business owner", you're virtual. The techniques and strategies in this class are the same ones you should be using to grow your own business and 2/ You can use the same strategies on your clients' businesses making you even more valuable to them as you expand your list of services (and clients!). VAs who know these strategies are in high demand.
Q. I don't have hundreds of dollars a month (yet) to spend running my business, is it possible to build a business for less than that?
A. Yes, we'll cover tools and resources which result in you spending as little as possible while still preparing your business for success. It's important to build a strong foundation which allows for expansion and we'll discuss different options for doing so, without breaking the bank.
Q. Is the Mentoring Program tax deductible?
A. The cost of this Program may be tax deductible when taken for business purposes. You should always double check with your tax preparer.
Q. I feel like I'm in overwhelm with all the information I have purchased or found in other places, plus the teleseminars I keep attending. When does a person just stop gathering?
A. Honestly, NOW is the time to stop gathering and start or speed up your implementation! You could gather for the next 20 years and still learn things. If you REALLY want to build your business into something which gives you cash flow and freedom, now is the time. Knowledge without implementation is wasted knowledge — that's why this Program is SO results and implementation-focused.
Q. What happens if I miss a class?
A. All the classes will be recorded and the audio link and webinar presentations will be available within 24 hours for you to listen online or download and review on your schedule (CDs will also be sent out so you can listen wherever best suits you). All classes are also transcribed for your convenience.
Q. You mentioned that there are "assignments". Do I have to do them all?
A. I've developed the assignments to ensure you implement quickly. The most important part of building your business is to "get things done". Completing the assignments will have a direct impact on how quickly your business grows — remember, I'm teaching you how to build a business for the long term.
Q. I want to learn how to create and sell information products. Will the Program cover that?
A. Absolutely! As you know, I'm all about leveraging time and effort and creating information products is one of the best ways to do that. We'll go into step-by-step detail on how to create a product and, if you complete your assignments, you'll have a product ready which you can either sell or offer as a f'ree giveaway by the end of the program – even if you don't have a website.
Q. Will we be able to network with other group members and share experiences?
A. Absolutely! The Program is designed for you to interact with everyone and to share information via our private email discussion group. I will also be active in the forum to provide even more coaching and answer questions (in addition to our regularly-scheduled Q&A calls).
Q. I own a "brick and mortar" business and don't have an online presence. Is this Program for me?
A. Yes. Whether you own an "online" or "offline" business, the best combination for long lasting success is to combine strategies from both. If you are currently "offline", you will learn how to create an online presence which allows you to make money passively while drawing customers from all over, as opposed to just your local area. Online businesses will learn how to harness the power of offline strategies to ensure a constant flow of visitors.
Q. I have a website, but I'm not getting any sign-ups to my list. Will you show me how to get consistent sign-ups?
A. Yes. In addition to teaching you how to optimize your site for better conversions (more sign-ups), you'll receive a bonus (unadvertised) list of over 100 ways to grow your list and convert visitors.
Q. I currently have a product for sale, but no one is buying it. Can you help me with that?
A. Absolutely. It doesn't do you much good to have a product which no one is buying. In addition to reviewing how to write copy (there is a method behind the madness) and properly position your product (including price points), I'll be critiquing specific marketing pieces (submitted by members) in the Program.
Q. Do you think this program is too basic for me?
A. If you're making anything less than 6 figures in your business or find yourself flitting from program to program and strategy to strategy like a butterfly as you fall deeper into overwhelm, this program is not too basic for you. We'll be creating a strong foundation with systems and processes designed to get you more clients quickly and for the long term.
This Program is implementation and results-focused. We're not going to discuss a lot of theories and "what to dos" – we will be discussing real world, proven techniques which work AND HOW to implement them immediately in low cost, high impact ways.
