Wahoooooooo! Today is the day a brand new business in a box showed up at my front door.
While I love marketing ''out of the box''...
I believe wise business women build a business they BUY in a box!
Seriously! Where else can you start your very own online boutique with adorbs clothing, jewelry + accessories for $199!!!!!! And when I started my Thirty-one biz (back in 2009) it was only $99!!!!!! Would you even believe me if I told you I 5000%-ed my ROI!? As in over my lifetime I've earned 5000x what I paid for my starter kit.
To be honest In 4 years with my coaching business startup + investments, I've just tipped the scale of breaking-even..... as in .10% ROI!!!!!
Let me say that again.
It's taken me 4+ years to make 10% of what I've invested which means I'm 90% in the hole. Yea, I said it... I'm an online business coach teaching people how to make money --- that doesn't make money hahahah. Oh the irony!
BUT, I had a breakthrough today around this when talking to my SOUL SISTER and biz partner, Michele Julian when she said....
You don't teach people because you did it right....
You teach them because you F'd up
And they're not going to make the mistakes you did.
You've been in business for 18 years!
Why did you start your own business?
Me: so I could work from home with my kids
And you've done that!
And you make money right?
Me: well, yah.... but not from coaching.
But you make money from thirty-one.
Me: yah, but I don't even do anything to make that money
So how do you make money without working?
Me: Well, I have a team!
OK. So you had to work to build that team.
Me: not really it kind of just happened
So it came easy to you?
Because you were just sharing. You were passionate about something and you shared it with people.
Me: well, yah.
So it was so easy you didn't even feel like you were working?
And now you have a team built that makes your income for you.
See! You know how to make money!
So, I was telling myself a STORY that I'm a biz coach that doesn't know how to make money -- when in reality it's quit the opposite!
And, I've also decided that I'm not going to be ashamed of my journey! And I'm not going to shrink as an online biz coach. I KNOW what it takes to build a biz online and I'm not going to stop before I 10,000% my ROI! And I'm going to be even more transparent as I take you on the journey with me. I have nothing to hide -- I'm only here to help YOU!
Michele always reminds me... I'm not rich because I don't steal from people, lol! And that I have so much to teach people about business that it was hard for me so it can be easier for them because I'm a really good teacher and I really care about my clients.
I'm also not going to be ashamed of partnering with now, ANOTHER direct sales company when I'm already actively working/promoting Thirty-One + MONAT.
Because ya know what... I'm DAMN SMART! And I give myself good advice. And I know what works for me. And I also know that tomorrow I can change my mind about any decision I make today. Maybe I'll stay ''married'' to Thirty-One forever... maybe I'll ''retire'' after 10 years (next May)... maybe I'll run dual direct sales businesses maybe I go full time with Crowned Free.... maybe I run it as a passion project + hobby.
Here's the thing.
I don't have to DECIDE. Unless company policies change and I do, hahah!
I can do whatever I want.
My business doesn't have to look or be a certain way.
That's why I'm my own boss!
I tell my students/clients all the time...
#1 You're the BOSS
#2 There are no RULES
So there ya have it! I'm the boss and there are no rules so I'm going to PROUDLY share the products and opportunity Crowned Free has to offer.
So let me tell you the reasons WHY I chose to partner with Crowned Free...
💗 1 // FB ad in my messenger - savvy at marketing, got my attention #nailed it
💗 2 // Great Graphic design - branding is obviously important #nailedit
💗 3 // Heidi, the owner - I actually had a messenger convo with HER not a chat bot and then we got on the phone and had a great conversation
💗 4 // The Cause - while human trafficking hasn't affected me personally I know it's a REAL + BIG problem and I want to help people
💗 5 // 15% of sales (i think) go to fight #HumanTrafficking

💗 16 // My sponsor is a former Thirty-One Executive Director #awesomesauce
