In this episode, I share some secrets of working with my 7-figure mentor James Wedmore to help you build an online business of your dreams.
Here’s a quick recap:
- Work on yourself: If you want to become a successful entrepreneur for the long run, work on yourself as much as you work on your business. Your business is a direct reflection of you!
- Grow a team: You can’t build a million dollar business if you spend all of your time on $10/hour tasks. There’s only so much time in the day and it’s up to you to protect your time and stay in your zone of genius. Start outsourcing work so you can stay focused and make the impact and income you want to make.
- Nail your niche: People want to follow and work with experts — no one is good at everything. If you don’t niche down, you’ll likely never get the results you want. It’s up to you to find a niche and build a name for yourself. As you become more successful, you can always broaden out in the future.
- Know your audience: Once you niche down, get to know your ideal audience as if you’re a family member! The more you know them, the better content you can create to help them get results in their life or business.
- Reframe how you think about selling: Adopt the mantra, “The transformation is in the transaction.” The better you are at believing your stuff and knowing that people won’t get results unless they invest in your stuff, the more success you will have.
- Create an ascension model: Have a suite of products at different price points all about the same offer. Remember, there are always going to be individuals who want the VIP experience while others might want the lowest one. Having several offers will help you attract more people into your business.
- Take more time off: I know this sounds counterintuitive but it really works. When you take time off, you can recharge, look at your business from a 30,000 foot view, and get clear on what you need to do next.
As Tony Robbins said, “Success leaves clues.”
These clues from James Wedmore have helped me build a thriving online business and I wanted to share them with you.
In a post pandemic era, there has never been a better time to build an online business and share your gifts with the world.
Go out there and make it happen!
Speaker 1 (00:00):
You are listening to episode number 96 of inspire your success podcast. On today’s episode, I’m going to take you through the seven biggest lessons that I’ve learned in the past year from my seven figure mentor so you can find success as an online business owner coming up.
Speaker 2 (00:20):
Hi, I’m Michael Leonard and I built a full time online writing business that offers me the freedom to never go back to a cubicle in a nine to five if you’re like most people, you want to make more money to pay off debt, have more freedom, travel, and actually enjoy your life. Whether you want to earn $500 per month as a side hustle or scale writing business to five figures per month and quit your job making money as a writer has never been easier in this podcast. I want to inspire your success as a freelancer and show you how I 10 X my income in one year and made $20,000 in one month as a freelance writer. If I can do it, I know you can too. Thanks so much for being here.
Speaker 1 (01:04):
Welcome back to inspire your success podcast. This is your host, Michael Leonard. And as always, thank you for tuning in with me today. If you’re listening on the Monday, hope you’re having a great Monday. This is going to be, uh, definitely some motivational tips here for you and I’m excited to get into it. Um, but again, just kind of checking in with you, hopefully, you know, you’re making the most of kind of the comeback. Like I literally can’t believe that happened the last two months. I don’t know if you’re like me. Um, it’s just still like hard to believe. It’s like, did we really shut down the world for two whole months? Uh, yeah, it’s been been weird. So hopefully you’re coming back and making the most of it and uh, now all of a sudden it’s like summertime and, uh, people are usually traveling and vacations, but that is not the case.
Speaker 1 (01:50):
So again, hopefully we’re making the most of it. Um, and I think this episode will help you really make the most of your online business. And again, the whole thing on this one is I just want to share some of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned in the last year. Uh, as I mentioned in episode number 94, uh, it was a year ago, uh, now that I enrolled in the number one online business program, uh, if you want to build an online business for a personal brand, um, by James Wedmore, it’s called business by design. I enrolled about a year ago and I have been immersed in there. I’ve been, uh, someone that has taken all the content and I’ve applied it to this podcast. I’ve applied it to courses, I’ve created coaching. Uh, I’ve applied it to literally every area of my business and I found so much success because of this guy, James Wedmore, who really takes us through it.
Speaker 1 (02:42):
And again, if you don’t know James, he’s the, uh, the creator of the mind. Your business podcast thing’s got like 7 million downloads, 300 plus episodes. He’s generated like 30, $40 million in revenue and been doing this online business thing for over a decade, which is pretty long. Um, most people have, you know, only been at it a few years at that. Um, so to be at it for 12 years, he’s built several businesses including a YouTube business membership site business. Um, and now he has the, um, business by design program. He has a high level masterminds that are 30 to $100,000 to join. I mean, he has absolutely crushed it. Um, but he is the most genuine, um, entrepreneur I’ve ever met. Really the, uh, the best teacher I’ve ever met. And, uh, it says a lot. I mean, this guy’s in his mid thirties and he is so successful, but he loves sharing it.
Speaker 1 (03:33):
And so that’s what I want to do for you guys here is share what I’ve learned from him. Um, because maybe you haven’t heard about him yet. Um, and if not, I highly recommend you take a look at the show notes. I have some of the most popular episodes, uh, that I recommend you listening to and some other resources to learn about this guy, James Wedmore, um, because he can really help you, um, with the mindset side of things. And again, it’s just had a lot of success with building an online business so you can learn a lot from him. So want to take you through seven of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned here, uh, in the past year. And as always a before that have to share my random fact for the day. And my random fact I talked about, I think it was the last episode, how much I love corgis and dogs and helping out dogs.
Speaker 1 (04:16):
Um, this one’s completely random, but it is all about how much I love movies and specifically the fast and the furious movies. So if you’re a hater out there, it’s okay. We can still be friends. But I just wanted to share this story because I loved those movies for so long. I mean the first one came out when I was in high school that I even had a Honda civic with under neons because I wanted to be like Paul Walker and all those cool guys and fast and the furious. So if you’re judging me totally fair, I kind of judged myself. But at the end of the day, I was super excited about it and I thought I was the coolest kid in high school, when in reality I definitely wasn’t. But that’s my random facts. If you liked the fast movies, let me know. I’m so mad they got delayed by a year because the stupid pandemic.
Speaker 1 (04:59):
But that stuff happened. So random facts. I love sharing with you guys and connecting. So thanks again for always putting up with me and listening to those. So let’s jump into the seven biggest lessons that you can apply. Um, from my seven figure mentor, James Wedmore. So the first thing that I, I cannot stress this enough is that success in business and in life is an inside game. Um, prior to working with James, I was a hustler. Uh, I actively wore shirts that said hustle. I would wake up at 3:00 AM and work until 10:00 PM. Uh, I would do anything. I lived the hustle, hustle, hustle, lifestyle, uh, and then it didn’t work. And then all of a sudden I ended up, uh, like depressed, not making any money in credit card debt. And, uh, just burnt out, um, because I wasn’t doing all the spiritual work, the inside the internal work.
Speaker 1 (05:55):
Um, and it was something I never really, uh, had been a part of. I never had any kind of background in that. Um, and when I was working with James, uh, about a year ago, uh, going through his stuff, I realized that’s when he said, your business is a direct reflection of you. And that hit home, uh, that really was like, Whoa, okay. Like it’s no one else’s fault that my business wasn’t making a bunch of money other than my own. And it’s because I wasn’t playing the internal game and I wasn’t really uncovering some old beliefs that were holding me back. Um, and I think that that is one of the biggest things that I, if you could take anything from this episode, it’s this is that it is an inside game. Most people look for success outwardly. I used to do that, uh, when I was at the nine to five at Yelp, uh, was making a hundred grand, bought a house, bought a BMW, thought I was just the coolest guy out there.
Speaker 1 (06:48):
Um, all these accolades, but I wasn’t happy. I mean I was just going through the motions. I wasn’t fulfilled. Um, because I wasn’t playing the internal game. I was thinking outwardly only and really the last year and honestly the last few months specifically for me too, I just keep going deeper and deeper to understand how all this stuff works. And so I don’t know where you’re at in your journey. Maybe you think this is absolute BS. I don’t believe in it. Or maybe you’re someone that is like reading a manifestation book right now and meditated this morning and, uh, you know, reading your affirmations before you go to bed. I don’t know where you’re at, but I will say that if you want to find a lot of success with a internal piece, the biggest thing I could suggest is to work on your inner game.
Speaker 1 (07:32):
Um, you know, study yourself, figure out who you are. At a core level, learn about things like the law of attraction and how vibrational energy and frequencies work and, and how your beliefs really dictate your entire life and how you’re programmed at a young age. And you can live out all these things. And so I won’t get into it here. I do a lot of personal development writing and I have over the last few years. Um, but it’s, it’s a really big thing. And so I just want you to know that if you’re not finding the success you want in life or in business, look inside. Don’t look outwardly. Everything that you want is inside you. But a lot of times we got to let go of all those old limiting beliefs that are holding us back. So again, spend some time in there. I promise it is the best return you’ll ever get better than anything else.
Speaker 1 (08:20):
Maybe other than the business by design course that I learned all this stuff in from James. But again, guys, just remember it all starts with you. The second tip for running a successful online business is learning that you cannot do it all alone. And, um, you know, for me, I tried for about two years to do everything on my own. I was my own video editor. I was social media scheduler. I was creating content, filming videos, recording podcasts, writing content, writing for clients, uh, reading books about it, taking webinars, learning about webinars, uh, like everything, did everything. Um, I don’t know why I think I thought I wasn’t making enough money to warrant, uh, hiring a team or, or what it was. Um, but eventually it just, again, led to burnout. And so if you think about it, no millionaire or billionaire for that matter ever got there alone.
Speaker 1 (09:15):
I think there’s this like a stigma by a lot of bloggers and people and hustlers that you gotta do it yourself. Honestly, I think that’s a absolute BS. Um, when I first hired my first virtual assistant, uh, Sarah, who’s now the integrator project manager over here, uh, everything like got better for me. I mean, she helped with social media and podcasts and all this other stuff and I realized, I’m like, wow, how did I not have anyone helping me this whole time? Um, because think about it guys, you’re, you’re only really good at a few things. No one can be the best graphic designer, the best podcast or the best writer, like everyone has their own zone of genius. And that’s okay. And so for me, I, you know, realized, wow, my, my zone of genius is writing and podcasting when it comes to designing a sales page, I suck at it when it comes to social media.
Speaker 1 (10:03):
I don’t like doing it and I suck at it. Pinterest, I suck at it like all of these things, yet I was spending time doing it. And so while it’s easy to think, Oh yeah, but you can do it, you can save money. It’s not actually true. I mean, if you think about your hourly rate and you think about your zone of genius and you think about it, your, your time in a, in an energy form, you’ll realize that if you’re doing all these little things in your business that it will eventually hit burnout. I mean, again, there’s only so much time in the day. So if you actually want a life and you don’t want to spend every second of the day working inside your business as an employee, you’re going to have to hire other people. And it doesn’t have to be full time employees with benefits and all that stuff.
Speaker 1 (10:44):
You know, it can be very different. It can literally be a virtual assistant that helps with five hours a week. It can be, um, you know, someone else that helps you edit your content if you’re, uh, in the writing side of things. Or it can help with someone that wants to do video editing or social media. Um, you know, like I mentioned in a year, I went from by myself to now having a team of three other part time people that helped me out with editing. I’m with big projects, with launches and everything else. And so it’s helped so much because I have so much more time to focus on stuff. I’m good at like coaching freelance writers, like writing for other clients, like writing on medium. And so just remember that you can’t be good at everything. It’s okay to hire help. Um, even if you’re not quote unquote ready yet, because when you free up that time, you can stay in your zone of genius and that’s when you can shine.
Speaker 1 (11:30):
And that’s when you can attract more money and opportunities and clients into your life. And the quote I got from James about this is, I remember when I was going through his training, he said, the reason you can’t afford to outsource is because you aren’t outsourcing, you haven’t been doing it. And so that, that quote hit me hard. You know, a lot of times we think we’re going to make it to a certain amount and then we can hire. But it’s usually not the case. I mean, usually you have to hire help so that way you can get to that number and then you can hire more help and hire more help. And so, you know, my goal is to grow this team to the size to where I am literally only doing, um, the podcast and the coaching and different trainings and things like that.
Speaker 1 (12:08):
And I want to outsource everything else. So again, I can stay in my zone of genius and I can let other people who are good at graphic design, good at social media, good at everything else, do everything else so that way I can stay in this area and I can impact the most people. And so the same goes with you. And I learned that from James again four years ago. I think he had four people working with him and now he has a team of like 40. I mean it’s absolutely insane and that is one of the reasons I think he was able to grow so much is cause he realized what his zone of genius was and he hired out everything else. So just remember, you can’t be good at everything. Um, get your time back by hiring some help, even if it’s part time and I promise it will literally blow your mind.
Speaker 1 (12:50):
All right, tip number three. And before we jump into that, I’m just also want to let you know we have the brand new checklist, a quick wind checklist out. So if you go over to inspire your success.com forward slash quick wins, you can actually download this new resource that I created and it’s a five step process to get some quick wins in your writing business. And that way you can start to land some clients and make some money. I’m so highly recommended. Take a look at that. I’m really proud of how that turned out. And if you use it, you can absolutely land your first client. So again, inspire your success.com forward slash quick wins. All right, number three tip from Mr. James Wedmore is to nail your niche. And man, I talked about this last Monday. So if you didn’t listen to make sure you’re tuning into 94.
Speaker 1 (13:42):
Um, but this is one of the biggest things that I can suggest it not only in your writing business if you’re a writer, but if you’re someone that’s listening to this and you want to start an online business that isn’t related to writing, you got to have a niche. And that changed everything for me. Um, last year when I became the freelance writing niche, that was my niche. That was my specialty man. The podcast is increased. The downloads, um, you know, the, the blog changed. Uh, the YouTube channel changed. I mean, the course itself that I offer freelance, a five K change, everything became clear, um, because I became known as an expert and I started creating content just around one subject and then I would infuse other things like mindset and building online businesses and stuff. I’m into it just like I’m doing right now.
Speaker 1 (14:28):
Um, and it really helped because I became an expert. I became a trusted resource and people, you know, began joining my email list and listening to the podcast and everything else. So please guys nail your niche. It will not only help you become an expert, but it will help you get to know your ideal audience and help them with a specific problem so that way you can speak to them, you can help them. Um, and again, that’s, you know, what I’ve learned is that when I decided, Hey, I’m going to be the freelance writing coach, I’m going to be the number one resource. I started to interact with people and really learn, cause I kind of forgot what it was like to be, you know, a beginner writer that was me two and a half years ago. So, you know, going back and really learning from all you guys and what you’re struggling with and what you want to achieve, um, helped me create content that you guys love and that why people keep reading it on medium and following on Instagram and downloading stuff from the podcast.
Speaker 1 (15:20):
So, you know, getting to know your audience is so, so big and that will help if you are known as an expert. So again, please nail your niche, kind of like point number two, you can’t be good at everything. And so that’s why people, you know, become known for one thing. Um, and that’s really how you attract a tribe and start to create an awesome online community. So if you have any questions on any of this stuff is always, guys let me know. You can always email me support at inspire your success, but we’re going to keep moving because I love this stuff and I want to just share it because again, I learned all this from James. It’s been the best investment ever working with him. And uh, you know, the community of people inside is so cool and I’ve met a lot of lifelong friends that are literally throughout the country and world.
Speaker 1 (16:06):
Um, so I’m very, very grateful and I want to share this stuff with you because maybe you hadn’t heard of James yet, or maybe you’re just looking for some inspiration to start your own online business. So tip number four, I kind of touched on it a little bit. I’m not going to go too much more into it, is to just know your audience. Um, you know, if you’re on my email list, if you’re on my Instagram, we might’ve even talked in person. Um, you know, I, I literally will just get people on the phone and just do free coaching calls or just kind of wanting to learn more. Um, I did that back in December. I just emailed out to my email list and I was like, Hey guys, I just want to learn more. Like I’m literally not selling anything, offer anything. I just want to know where you’re at and how I can help.
Speaker 1 (16:43):
And so that was really, really cool to me. And I could not recommend this enough because I was actually at a conference in February pre pandemic when we could travel. And, uh, the same thing was echoed by two internet marketing legends, Amy Porterfield and Pat Flynn. These people are so successful, multi, multimillion dollar businesses. Um, you know, you probably have heard of them or both of them and they said the same thing. They said, you gotta know your people, you gotta know who you’re working with and how you can help them. And, uh, PatFlynn even said that despite being, you know, having this massive business, he said that every month he still gets on the phone with five subscribers. Just to talk. I thought that was so, so cool. So, you know, getting to know your audience will not only help you create better content, but it’ll just help you become more relatable to them.
Speaker 1 (17:32):
Uh, it’ll obviously show people you care and uh, you can just figure out how you can help them because you know, the reason you’re in online business and you want to become an entrepreneur, I’m sure you want to make money and you know, have a lifestyle, but you want to help people. I mean, the more people you help, the more money you can make and the more impact you can have. But you can never help people if you don’t really know who your people are and what they’re struggling with. So I think that’s one of the biggest things I could recommend, is to just keep figuring out what the, what your people are dealing with and how you can help. And man, the return you’re going to get is just amazing. So whether that’s an Instagram DM, it’s getting on a phone call with them, whatever it is, try and interact, meet up in person if you can.
Speaker 1 (18:15):
I mean, it’s so cool. And you know, for me, I learned so much about my audience and just making sure I was creating the right content because a lot of times I’d create the wrong content. No one had listened. Um, and it’s not that it wasn’t good, it’s just that that wasn’t what they were struggling with or wanted to hear. So again, make sure you are doing that. All right. Tip number five from James is to understand that the transformation is in the transaction. So this is going to be a big aha for a lot of people because most of us grow up hating selling. Um, you know, I was a sales rep and even being a sales rep at Yelp, um, that was still kind of me. It made me cringe a little bit. I was like, Ugh. Like nobody likes a salesman, right?
Speaker 1 (18:59):
Nobody wants to be sold. And for a lot of people, you know, they think of sales and they think of like car dealers, like pushing deals down, people’s that shouldn’t be buying cars and things like that. And so sales is, you know, one of those things where you’re going to have some sort of belief. Maybe you love sales and maybe you grew up hating sales. Maybe your parents thought it was they were great, or maybe your parents thought, Oh, salesmen are the worst. But if you are running an online business, it does not work unless you get sales. You can create the best content in the world, but if you’re not making any money from it, your business is not going to last very long. And so, uh, James always says the transformation is in the transaction. So here’s what he means by it. He’s basically saying that people are not going to invest fully into your stuff until they actually pay for it.
Speaker 1 (19:46):
Now, this is so, so true, and it’s evident with him because he, his programs several thousand dollars, but the returns are just amazing. But those are the people that become the most successful. He has had millions of views on YouTube. He has add millions of downloads on his podcast. But when he was talking to our group a couple months ago, he said that 99% of all the testimonials and all the case studies where the individuals like me who invested in his program and actually found the most success, you know, people that are out there seeking freebie content all the time. There’s nothing wrong with that, but you don’t have any skin in the game. So that’s what I found as well. So people will, you know, read and listen to my stuff about freelance writing and they might have some success, but it’s the people that actually invest in my program, in my online course, um, freelance to 5k or inside my coaching that find the most success because they have skin in the game, they’re mentally invested as well as actually putting money into it.
Speaker 1 (20:52):
So they know that there is a, a bit more of a drive to get out there and make it happen. You know, I’ve had several students that just use the bonus training inside my course to literally make thousands of dollars on medium. I mean, and then find more success as freelance writing and getting clients the same thing. Is that what James found? You know, and I’m one of his top case studies, uh, not like success. Like I’ve made millions of dollars in a year. Um, but I’ve used so much of what he’s learned and launched webinars and done all these cool things to run an online business because I’m invested in it. So again, guys, just think about it. You know, how many times have you downloaded free stuff and then not gotten results, but then you realize you weren’t really that into it. You know, the same thing goes for me.
Speaker 1 (21:38):
Like when I invested a hundred dollars an hour in a coach for a golf, you know, I got okay results. I wasn’t that committed. But when I started working with a PGA tour coach, that’s like $600 or $800 for two hours. Trust me. Not only did I commit to it, but the results are a lot better. So you know, you gotta pay to play. You can’t just get all this free content on Google and think you’re going to become a billionaire entrepreneur. Sometimes you got to invest in people. And as a digital CEO you have to understand that selling is a good thing. You want people to interact and purchase from you because that will help them get to transformation and whatever your transformation is. And so for me, inside freelance a five K, the transformation is to learn how to become a well-paid writer.
Speaker 1 (22:25):
So I know when someone spends the money and invest in themselves on the program that they are going to find way more success than someone that just reads one of my blog posts and maybe applies it or maybe doesn’t. So I’m staying with this a little bit longer because I want you guys to realize how important it is and look in your own life where have you spent money and actually gotten a return versus finding some free resource and gotten okay results or no results at all. So again, you need to invest in yourself and as a selling professional, as someone that is offering online content out there, you have to understand that the transformation is in the transaction. So no matter how you feel about selling, it’s up to you to get so confident in what you sell, that people are just attracted to it and you know that if someone invest in you that they are going to get an unbelievable transformation.
Speaker 1 (23:18):
All right, tip number six here from James Wedmore is to have an extension model. This is one of the number one reasons I was a failing broke, depressed blogger guys, is I did not have an extension model, and if you don’t know what that is, it basically means you have several different ways people can work with you. So when I was a blogger, I had no specific ways. I was depending on Google ads and affiliates. I had no specific ways to people work for me. My income was literally based on if stuff people clicked on stuff and clicked on ads. That was it. Let me tell you, that is not a great business model. I’m not going to say you can’t make it work cause there are some successful bloggers out there that pretty much just do that but don’t get it wrong. They are absolute gurus with SEO, Facebook ads, driving traffic, emails, funnels and everything else.
Speaker 1 (24:10):
So just remember though, an extension model is very, very important and so for me it’s like a five tier product basically. So you are listening right now to my free content. This is the free stuff. Anyone can get it, which is great. I love it. But then there’s the next version which is then investing inside freelance to 5k or doing one of my paid workshops from there. You know you can do one on one coaching with me that is again very limited. There’s only a few spots but again it’s a higher ticket offer but you’re also working with me in 60 days. You’re getting zoom calls, you’re doing messaging, email support, you’re, you’re actually getting a lot more support from me. And then from there you can also do a weekend where you come out to Scottsdale, we build out your website, we get real clear on everything.
Speaker 1 (24:53):
And that is like the highest tier offer. So again, having an extension model in your business is crucial. You want to have free stuff. Sure you want to have podcast or blog or YouTube videos. That way people can get to know you. Then you want to have some different models. You want to have, again, maybe a $200 course or $500 course, then some one on one coaching. Or maybe you do a mastermind or group coaching. Maybe you do one on one coaching, but you want to have multiple offers because people are going to want to work with you on different levels. And some people might be in that free stage and then they might go to the next one and then the next one and then the next one. Um, but that’s really what I found is so important. And I realized James does that so beautifully.
Speaker 1 (25:32):
Um, and that’s why he’s, you know, made $40 million or, or more as a digital CEO selling online courses and products is because he has an extension model to help people get that transformation. So again, most bloggers don’t have this. And I think that is one of the biggest reasons that most bloggers don’t make a lot of money and instead spend all their time doing Pinterest and blogging stuff and just wasting time because they don’t really have specific offers. So if you have a niche though, guys, you can create these different offers at different price points and you can help your audience get that transformation. So, all right, I’m excited. We’re on to tip number seven. Um, and again, these are seven tips from James Wedmore that I’ve learned in the last year and the final one, you’re going to love this one. Take more time off.
Speaker 1 (26:21):
Serious. As James always says, the rest is the work. You know, sometimes you gotta recharge your battery so you can stay motivated. You know, it is really hard to do your best work if you’re constantly feeling tired, burnout, stressed and exhausted while most people are out there telling you to work harder. James is telling you the exact opposite. And that’s what I’ve been doing is I’ve been hiring help. I’ve been working less, I’ve been working on my mindset stand in the right, um, spiritual place and really doing the deep work on the internal side. And that has helped me feel so much more. Refresh, recharge and doing things like yoga and just taking time away from my laptop and turning off my phone, um, and doing all that. And you know, every time I get back to work now I’m much more excited. And so if I ever log on to my computer and I’m just, I’m just not feeling it.
Speaker 1 (27:08):
I don’t say bored, but I just can’t get myself to do anything. It’s usually cause I’m exhausted. So just remember that hustling is not the only way to do this. Um, you know, you do need some drive. You need a good work ethic, but working more is not the solution. Sometimes you got to recharge and just get clear about what you’re doing, drop some things, hire some help and uh, you know, really get intentional with your self care and your rest time because the better you are, the better you’re going to show up for your audience and for your people. So, and by people, I mean your family, sorry, got a little winded here at the end of three podcasts, but I’m loving it. And uh, you know, hopefully the guys that all make sense because again, at the end of the day, you want to build your business by design.
Speaker 1 (27:54):
You don’t want to just build a business where you’re a slave to it and you work 80 hours because that’s what I was the first two years. And that sucked. I went from making six figures at Yelp, working maybe 40 hours a week to making barely anything working 80 hours a week because I wasn’t using these principles. And so, uh, maybe give this another listen, uh, you know, go through this stuff. And again, if you don’t know who James is, please go ahead and take a look at the show notes in there. Learn more about business by design, his program that I’m enrolled in, I’d love to see in there. Uh, again, if you’re someone that wants to build an online business, uh, maybe you’re a course creator, a membership site owner, you want to do coaching, um, and you have an expertise in any area and you want to build an online business.
Speaker 1 (28:36):
There is no better guy to learn from than James Wedmore. He is a truly incredible guy and I want you to read as much as you can about it, uh, inside the show notes here and you can take a look at the links to learn more there. So hopefully that gave you guys some more clarity and can use these lessons. Remember, use one, use all of them. Um, they’re all stuff that I’ve invested a lot of money to learn and I wanted to share some of the biggest takeaways with you guys today. So if you have any questions about joining business by design and joining me inside James’s program, let me know. Um, the enrollment is only open in June and he does this once a year. So again, it is a highly powerful program that can literally take you from struggling course creator, a to a successful digital CEO. So again, make sure to take a look at the links, uh, email me [email protected] if you have any questions about what it’s really like in there and uh, I would love to share and even hop on a call with you. So thanks again for listening. As always, guys, I hope you have an Epic day.
