Do you ever find that a day, a week or sometimes a month can slip by and you feel like you haven’t really progressed in your business? When you look back at the time you realize you were busy, but this “busyness” hasn’t yielded you any results?
If this has happened to you, you are not alone. We have all been there before. The trick however is to recognize it and then do something about it. When I first discovered this was happening to me, I let it go on for a little bit longer than I would like to admit (nobody’s perfect, right?!). Over time however, as I got more serious about my business, I knew that something had to change.
Here are two key meetings that helped me break the cycle of spending my days, ‘busy being busy’ and getting nothing done to being uber productive and getting more traction in my business which led to (and leads to) helping more people, making more money and making a bigger impact.

When I decided that I wanted to be a full time coach helping self-coaches grow their business so they can change the world with their gifts, I knew a few things had to change.

This month marks my 6th year as an entrepreneur (how did that happen?). Over the last 6 years I’ve had one business fail (big time), one that evened out and one that made it (it’s this one in case you were wondering).
According to many of the successful entrepreneurs I know, I’m right on track. All of them have had failures before they hit the jackpot. When I realized that it’s been 6 years since my first home based business, I couldn’t help but reflect on what I’ve learned over the years. It’s been so much. Deciding to venture out into the unknown land of entrepreneurship has been one of the best blessings of my life. It’s helped shape me in ways I didn’t know it would. I’ve learned about things I never knew existed (who knew what a split test was or shadow work?) and I’ve become a braver, bolder and smarter version of myself.
This week, I want to share with you 6 Big Marketing Lessons I’ve Learned In 6 Years Of Entrepreneurship. Marketing itself is a big topic but there are some fundamentals that will stand the test of time.
