How does your business help entrepreneurs and professional women?
I focused on the 3 main areas where entrepreneurial moms and I have struggled. Time, Money, and Growth.
Owning your time is a process. It’s not just relying on a daily agenda. Learning how to Shake Your MoneymakerTM and playing in your passion is hard for us entrepreneurs. We are so used to doing everything for ourselves. But as your business grows, Shaking Your MoneymakerTM will be the difference between you owning your time and having your time own you.
To increase revenue, there is a simple formula. It involves becoming crystal clear on your ideal client, understanding what problem you solve and how you solve it, and knowing why your clients should buy from you. Next add in the special mix of branding, marketing, sales and pricing. Easy, right? If it was easy then 80% of small businesses wouldn’t close their doors in less than 3 years. If it was easy, then 90% of women entrepreneurs wouldn’t be earning less than $50,000. True facts!
Planning for future growth. Scaling your business, growing beyond you, building a team, leaving a legacy, not doing it all… yup, that’s all planning for future growth. Establish yourself in the marketplace, systemize your process, create an organizational structure, build a hiring plan and away you grow!
What are you passionate about in your business and what steps are you taking to make it profitable?
I am passionate about starting a revolution for entrepreneurial moms: a revolution where we own our time, double our income and earn what we’re worth and make no apologies for the amazing value we bring to the marketplace.
There are too many women owned businesses out there that are playing small, that are undercharging and whose owners are working around the clock at the expense of their health, their sanity, their relationships and their life. Enough is enough.
The Grow Your Business Program is the result of all that I’ve learned through my last 3 businesses. I’ve spent years working with women who have “real businesses” – the sort of sustainable organizations that support families and generate dependable incomes. Tailored to meet your specific needs, this individualized program offers the guidance, tools, and preparation your business needs to expand and “make money while you sleep.”
Your progress is guided by three essential goals:
– Own your time
– Double your income
– Accelerate the growth of your business
With MomBiz, Lara Galloway and I continue to offer Live events, online communities, group coaching, private coaching and consultations – however you learn, we can help.
– Understand how to make big decisions that impact your business, your family and your life.
– Delegate, prioritize and develop a successful business that you and your family will love.
– Confidently choose your path and provide the tools to reach your goals.
When you do, your community of Mom Biz™ owners celebrates with you.
What do you hope conference attendees will take away from hearing you speak at our conference?
It is possible. Whatever your goal, whatever your dream, it is possible to reach it.
So many times we get caught on the HOW to get to where we want to go and forget to focus on WHAT we want. The HOW is always figure-outable (is that a word?) – it’s the what that comes from within you.
What is your favourite business tool
Learning – we get stuck when we don’t know what we don’t know.
Learn every day. Read, watch, listen, engage, connect. Feed your brain.
