Are you struggling to get in control of your schedule?
Or are you feeling scattered, overwhelmed, and “all-over-the-place”…
…like you have no boundaries or command over your life?
Hey, we’ve all been there.
Let’s face it, it’s no secret that building a business while maintaining your personal, social, and professional lives is a distinct challenge.
Luckily, there are proven techniques to help you sort all this out.
And there’s no time like right NOW to start fresh, hit reset, and set up new and strategic parameters for your work and your life, so you can get more done…and also have a ton more fun!
Ready to get started?
Then you’re going to love this…
Running a marathon isn’t easy.
In fact, it’s impossible.
Unless, of course, you’ve been training for months…running 3-5 times per week, gradually increasing your mileage, preferably for at least 6 months to a year.
That’s the “secret.”
It’s the same in business (and in life).
The ONLY “magic bullet” is…
The first rule of improv comedy is:
In practice, this means that no matter what ‘zany’ scenario is proposed by your partner, you accept it without resistance and figure out a way to move the scene forward.
“I can’t believe we’re stranded in this snowstorm!”
“Yes, and I told you that we shouldn’t have vacationed in the Hoth System!”
“Yes, and now the sky’s getting dark…wait…did you hear that sound!?”
There are endless possibilities of where a conversation could go, but the point is that it must go somewhere—it can’t remain stuck in one place, and those involved can’t reject the situation they’re clearly in the middle of.
This is how you…
“Think Jaws…in space.”
That’s how Ridley Scott’s Alien was pitched to 20th Century Fox (…with the unfortunate working title of Star Beast).
“Think Pocahontas…in space.”
That’s definitely NOT how James Cameron pitched Avatar to Fox studios, though it would have been an apt summary of the plot. Likewise, FernGully, The Last Samurai, and Dances with Wolves (all in space) would have worked too.
Perhaps surprisingly, Fox initially rejected Cameron’s proposal on the grounds of his overly-ambitious vision (and astronomical production budget of $237 million).
Critics were likewise skeptical, predicting the film would be a major box office disappointment.
Cameron, however, was undeterred by the naysayers.
His sentiment is that pressure is good for filmmakers, that pressure…
“Makes us think about our audience and what they want.”
And clearly Cameron succeeded.
Avatar became the highest grossing film in history on January 26th, 2010, at $2,779,404,183 USD worldwide.
Which begs the question…
How does a story we’ve been told numerous times become the biggest blockbuster of all time?
Well, it’s quite simple, really…
It all comes down to one thing:
Understanding how to connect with your audience.
That’s how you put butts in seats.
That’s how you move audiences to tears at the sight of a CGI tree burning to the ground (…or was that just me?).
And that’s also how, in online entrepreneurship…
You’re not special.
Now, forgive me for being so blunt…and hear me out.
If you’re like many people in this industry, you likely followed a familiar trajectory:
You wanted to earn a li’l extra on the side–maybe to afford a new car; pay down debts; or just to have a cushion, so you weren’t having stress about living paycheck to paycheck.
Naturally, you joined an opportunity, or two (…or three), had little results and lots of confusion, got disillusioned, and maybe even a little angry at the company, system, or your upline.
Hey, we’ve all been there! (Believe you me.)
Case in point…
You’re a stay at home mom who’s never made more than $700/month freelancing, while raising your family full time.
Now imagine your surprise when you smash your income goals, re-imagining what’s possible as you break through…
…and now over $5,000/month…
…all in under one year.
That’s exactly what Danielle Sweet Ellis achieved as she absolutely crushed her goals, broke through all her limiting beliefs and income barriers, and is now growing her business faster and more profitably than she ever imagined.
Recently Danielle sat down to discuss how to…
