As we settle into 2017, I'm breaking down the biggest things I did in 2016 to achieve the success I did with Life With Passion!
Today, I've got a powerful one for you:
I got REALLY visible in 2016.
Getting visible or "putting ourselves out there" is the thing that often scares us the most, the thing that strikes fear into my clients' hearts, and that was true for me, too.
I used my background and degrees in media communication, and examples from my mentors, and I did it before I felt ready.
I did it when my audience was a fraction of the size it is now, when I'd only worked with a few clients, when they didn't have the results they do now. I had no idea how to do livestreams. It felt scary, I felt nervous, I wondered what was going to happen. It felt crazy to put myself out there, because before starting Life With Passion I was extremely private, and I prided myself on the fact that I had NEVER advertised in my marketing business--all of my business was referral.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, nearly all of my Life With Passion clients came from getting visible--95% came to me as strangers.
I decided that my message was needed, and I wanted to reach as many women as possible with it.
Learning to get visible and put myself out there, using paid and organic methods, and connect with other peoples' audiences led to accomplishments in 2016 like:
Working one-on-one with clients in 3 different countries and 5 different time zones
Celebrating with them as most quit their jobs, became more confident, and took massive action themselves
Appearing on my first podcast in August, followed by 4 more over the next 4 months
Creating & launching my first passive income info-product (Get Traction On Your Passion), paid webinar (Facebook Ads Simplified) and group program (The 60 Day Launch)
Getting on a first-name basis with some "legit famous" people
Starting my own YouTube channel
Delegating stuff to the best VA ever, Julie
Hiring a high-priced designer to create beautiful work to upgrade my brand
Appearing on The Today Show's blog (see photo) and being personally selected by Arianna Huffington to appear on The Huffington Post
Launching our non-profit, Miles with Maeve, raising over $12,000, and being a featured speaker on its behalf at a charity gala
Saying goodbye to some marketing clients who were no longer a good fit, even though they'd generated regular income and I was terrified
Having an $18k month in the first month of the year!
Making $10k in 72 hours with a 5-week-old
Now I get to teach my clients the methods that quickly make this kind of visibility easy, comfortable, and even FUN, and I get to share them with you to show you what's possible for YOU, too!
HOW YOU CAN APPLY THIS:
You can do any of these things you want in 2017. None of it is HARD, it just requires you to show up and be strategic.
So, ask yourself:
What would visibility do for your business?
Where do you most want to be visibility right now? (It's ok if it's also the thing that scares you the most).
Lots of love,
