The Successfully Self Employed Group Coaching Program starts in 2 days! So, if you are still on the fence, this is your last chance to join us. We begin Thursday night, September 5th at 7:00 pm EST with the first of 12 teleclasses. We have a great group of participants already registered. I am very excited to lead this group through an awesome entrepreneurial growth process over the next 12 weeks, and watch them grow, improve, and up-level their businesses. Come join us!

dream_businessThere will be 12 calls in a row on Thursday evenings from September 5th to November 21st, each starting at 7:00 pm EST. (If you miss a class, no worries! All classes are recorded for your convenience.) Each call is open line, which means you can ask any questions of me or the participants, share your celebrations and challenges, and comment on others. This is key to a group coaching program! You will also have access to our private Facebook group to stay in touch between calls.

If you want to have a thriving, profitable business with a strong foundation, but your limited budget stands in the way of doing private business coaching/consulting, this is your chance to get the help and support you need! There are only a few spots left, so if you know this program is for you, act now. You have nothing to lose – except maybe spinning your wheels doing the same old thing! Click here for details and registration.

Want to learn more about the Successfully Self Employed Program, including the robust curriculum we will cover? Watch the short video I made that explains more about the program and how it will be instrumental in your business success.

So join us for the semester. I promise it will be the best decision you’ve made for your business in a long time!

Last week, I sent an email with details about my awesome new 12-week group business coaching program, Successfully Self Employed Semester. Some of you took quick action and registered. Welcome!

Many of you emailed, called or connected with me on Facebook to ask questions and let me know that you are seriously considering joining us. Thanks for your interest!

A lot of people are asking for more time to consider the program, but still benefit from the Early Bird Rate. I know a lot of you are on vacation these last few weeks of summer, or dealing with kids going back to school and off to college.

early_bird_extendedWell, I have a nice surprise for you!

I’m extending the early bird rate for a week until Monday, August 26th. As this program is geared towards newer entrepreneurs, I want keep the program affordable so that you can get access to the help you need and crave. The early bird investment is just $697 for the entire 12-week program. (And there’s even a 2-payment option to spread things out a bit if that helps).

Who Is the Perfect Candidate for this Group Coaching Program?

  • Those that learn well in a group environment. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other, and share challenges and solutions with the group. All calls will be open line and you will be able to ask questions and get coaching on the spot!
  • Those that are on a budget and cannot afford one-on-one coaching services. Many of you have expressed interest in accessing my private coaching, but couldn’t invest at that level. This is the perfect answer for you! You get me for 12 weeks in a small intimate group setting!
  • Those that crave structure in order to reach their business goals. There is a robust curriculum that we will follow which is great content. But we will also have a lot of fun, and go off syllabus when we need to!
  • Those that benefit from an accountability aspect. You have the opportunity to report your progress each week, as well as have access to me and other participants on our private Facebook group.

Join us. It’s going to be a great “semester!”

One thing I love about owning a business is meeting other fabulous entrepreneurs. I had the pleasure of meeting Betsy Baker at Christine Gallagher’s live event in November 2012 in Philadelphia. I was a speaker on the Success Panel, along with Betsy, and we really hit it off! So, when she asked me if I’d serve as an expert for her new telesummit, I was thrilled to participate.

Then when I heard the theme of the telesummit, From Passion to Prosperity, I was even more excited! Betsy has a real down-home folksy style that I love, and you will too. She personally interviews all of the telesummit experts and you get to listen in and hear some great advice for your business. If you are like me, some of your best learning comes from listening to other entrepreneurs give their honest advice on mistakes made on their journey, and how they have learned to prosper.

entrpreneurial_curseAre you a newer entrepreneur and notice that owning a business is harder than you thought it would be? Whether you are an existing business owner or thinking of starting a business, you may have noticed that being an entrepreneur is both rewarding and frustrating.

Why? The answer is the Entrepreneurial Curse!

What’s the Entrepreneurial Curse?

I’ll let you in on a little secret… it’s two sides of the same coin: The greatest thing about owning your own business is that you are your own boss. At the same time, the hardest thing about owning your own business is . . . you are your own boss! In order to avoid this curse, learning exactly what it takes to be a successful business owner is key — which “hats” you wear best, and how to juggle all of the demands of entrepreneurship and still thrive.

I’d love to share some core business principles with you based on my own business success, and that of the entrepreneurial clients I have been privileged to work with as a business consultant/trainer.

yeaJoin me for this enlightening (and complimentary!) teleclass where we will discuss what it takes to be a successful business owner and how to avoid (and overcome!) the “Entrepreneurial Curse.” I want you to be able to enjoy the freedom, flexibility and profitability that business ownership brings without getting caught in the trap of wearing all of the hats at the same time, and failing to excel at any one of them.

This teleclass is open to all business owners, but is especially targeted at the newer entrepreneur in the first few years of business, or emerging entrepreneurs that are hoping to make their dream of owning a business a reality.

I’d love you to join me for a Complimentary Teleclass to guide Newer Business Owners!
