Whether you are just starting your business, or you're turning a beloved hobby into a business, this episode is for you!
# 1. BUILD A FOLIO YOU LOVE!
5 years ago my photography mentor said something on a training the was a "duh" and "ah-ha" moment for me. She said this, "Build a portfolio that you love and only show what you want to sell." I stopped showing pictures of babies, families and weddings on my website and social media because I had no desire to photograph them. I started showing glamour and boudoir because that was the type of client I wanted to photograph. Whether you are a photographer, service provider or coach, show what you want to sell and build a folio that you love!
That means that you only show the products you want to sell and only use the reviews that showcase what you want to sell.
# 2. BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST
List building is CRUCIAL in business for many reasons. 1. You own your list, you don't own your social media following
2. 20% or less of your social media following actually sees your post and 60%+ of your email audience will see your emails. 3. People on your email list are WAY more likely to buy from you.
# 3. WORK ON YOUR MINDSET & EDUCATION
Your business won't grow more than your mindset. So if you don't grow, your business won't grow. Investing my time and money in books, podcasts, courses, masterminds and membership sites has been a crucial part of my business.
