What’s In This Episode:
Do you ever think to yourself, “I really wish I could talk to Jill or Brad for an hour about MY business?” Now you can! Sometimes you just need a little help, or you have a question to ask that’s been bugging you. You suspect that it’s not really a whole consulting engagement — you just need an hour to talk something over with someone who understands and can provide perspective. Book an hour with Brad here.
“I just want to remind everybody that social media is social.” – Jill
Author and esthetician Samantha Dench calls in because she has a ton of followers on social media, but has a hard time converting sales. Brad says she needs to think about the value that she’s offering. Jill also reminds her that she needs to be social on social media – more like you’re sitting and meeting a friend for coffee, and less like you’re trying to sell.
“Inviting people to community on a one-on-one basis is really powerful.” – Brad
As the year draws to a close there’s one thing that’s nearly certain. Brad’s to-do list is overflowing!
Maybe you’ve been hustling to get ready for the holidays, or maybe your clients have a lot of end of year requests that they want you to finish before their budget goes away. But the end of the year can be overwhelming for many.
Brad’s father once said, “Brad, when you find you are at the bottom of a hole, stop digging!”
How do we get out of that hole when our to-do’s are overwhelming? Stop and do three things:
- Say No — Stop Doing List: there are probably some things you don’t need to do.
- Delegate: What can I hand off to others?
- Declare Bankruptcy: Start over in the new year.
