Monetize Your Knowledge

Today, April 25th, I’m opening registration for the 21 Day Monetize Your Knowledge Challenge.

 

Why Monetize Your Knowledge? Because, we spend so much time learning, reading, attending webinars, conferences and basically hoarding information, but with no plan to use or leverage this information to grow our businesses.

 

I want to help you change that.

 

I want you to know how to take some of the knowledge you have now, your expertise, your passion and create ways to expand your business AND your profits.
Why a challenge… this just makes it interesting.   Each day, for the next 21 days, you will get an email in your inbox, with a video lesson, a tutorial, or an action item with a new way to monetize your message. Also, by joining the challenge, you will receive a Digital Download with further explanation on just what to do with all that knowledge you’ve been gathering.

I’ve been watching you CEOs!

 

You grab ALL of the latest books. You attended the conferences. You may have even attending some of mine. But, what have you done with all of that knowledge? Has it paid for the conference, has it benefited you and your business beyond simply inspiring you?

 

Most of you need to learn and understand how to ask for business, how to ask for your invoice, how to receive your value. I’m going to teach you that, over the course of 21 days-so that it sticks.

 

Once You Join the Challenge:

You will receive the ” Monetize Your Knowledge ” Digital Download,

Then, starting Friday, April 28th, I will show up in your inbox daily with a lesson, video, or action step for the next 21 Days

You will have a clearer understanding and tangible steps on what to do with all that knowledge to finally start to make more money for your business…

I will be happy that you have started to profit from what’s been stuck in your head 🙂

Challenge Starts Friday April 28th!!!

Just like that, and we are 1 month into 2017. Are your goals and business initiatives on schedule? Most of you started the year with a set of new projects and products that you wanted to create in addition to growing your client base. I wanted to share with you some tried and successful ways that grow Women CEO Project-incrementally, but sometimes substantially.
1. Package up your knowledge. I know you’ve heard this before and you’ve been thinking about creating that ebook, that digital download, that book or course. But have you done it yet? You are more than likely holding back on the project while you wait on it to be perfect or “the right time”. CEOs, now is the right time, and perfection is not needed to teach someone. What is needed, is your knowledge, packaged up in a clear ( plain speak) concise, and helpful way. Make it simple:
  • What 3 major things do you want your client to learn from this product?
  • What do you want your client to do once they finish using/reading your product?
  • What resources can you share with them in addition to your knowledge to enrich this product?
  • What method will you use to deliver this product?
  • What 3 ways/platforms/methods will you use to market this product?
  • What is the deadline to finish and launch this product?
There it is. Done for you. You just need to follow a simple plan and get your knowledge out there. Everyday that you hold back, you keep yourself and your business in the same place in ADDITION to not helping the people that you are supposed to help with your knowledge.
2. Bring the audience to you. If you’re waiting to get called for all of your speaking engagements, to serve on panels, or to meet your ideal client at other’s events…. you’ll be waiting a long time. One of the top speakers in the world who I truly admire, told me that she works/hustles for approximately 70% of the speaking engagements that she gets… that rocked my world. Like really, if she has to hustle like that-even being so known, I surely can’t just wait for my phone to ring. This is precisely why, for the last 14 years, I’ve hosted over 400 events…. Slightly out of shyness ( I know you can’t tell ) and a desire to 1. filter, then 2. bring the crowd to me… I realized that the best way to do just this, was to be in control of my networking and meetings. Let me increase the opportunities for me to speak by creating the event and placing myself as a speaker ( it’s amazing how much I get hired to speak AFTER meeting planners see me speaking). So, the long and short of this method, is to not wait and to take back the control of the type of audience that you want to meet. Why can’t you host your own event, be one of the speakers, AND bring in an audience that fits into your ideal client profile?
3. Know where to spend your time. With the launch of sites like Wix and Squarespace-you can truly create your own website-not within minutes, but within an evening, with wine, and few advils. I can create website… but I’m pretty intermediate at best, it takes me way too many hours, and I usually don’t love to end result.. but I could do it. I’m kind of hard-headed here and will occasionally just try to do things myself, but paying a contractor $100-$200 to create something for me quickly, is worth the money. At this point, I work with A LOT of clients through a monthly rolling calendar and truly am losing money minute by minute if I spend time hanging on the phone, half-azz creating a webpage or having pointless meetings. If you’re unsure on where to spend your time ( it’s in the Master Strategy Planner… ) you need to get really clear on what actually brings money into your business. I ask myself at least monthly, ” Kristi, where pockets in your business make you more profitable? How much time did you spend working and enhancing those pockets this month?”
So ask yourself:
  • What is your most profitable product or activity? If you are not sure, again refer back to the Master Strategy Planner
  • How have you shared or marketed this product in the last month? The last week?
  • What task filled your time when you should have been working on marketing this product?
  • What 2 areas can you pay someone to help you, so that you free up time to work on your profitable product(s)?
4. Leverage technology. No, but for real. I know that everyone is saying this, but this is one of those areas where you really need to pay attention to what is at your fingertips, give yourself some creative space to think about your initiatives and how they technology available can be bent to help you launch these initiatives. For example:
I paid $15 for a contractor ( on Fiverr above ) to research some past conferences in a specific genre, within a 5 year period, then list all of the sponsors.
Then, I had them search on Google/Linkedin and find the specific job title that I needed ( the person who was typically over marketing and saying yay or nay to sponsorships )
He then searched for their email address AND groups that they were in on Linkedin and added this information to a spreadsheet for me.
  • I could then reach out and build a relationship with this contact on Linkedin ( long-term strategy ) so that I can hopefully:
  • understand their marketing needs
  • when their yearly budget goes in ( I need to get them my sponsorship proposal before this time )
I hope the juices and flowing and you’re getting ideas on how to grow your business even slightly this week, and I want to help you further.
After hosting 8 successful mastermind teams in the last 4 years, I’ve created a new program to coach you monthly through the your major business foundations via a year-long mastermind, in addition to creating a private online community. Group Coaching allows you to share resources, gain multiple perspectives, have access to action plans, group challenges and a 24/7 Q & A platform. If you need just a little private time with me a month, we can spend an hour together in total creation mode, Q & A, or followup. Private coaching affords you all of the group coaching in addition to your monthly one-on-one time.

Media, Image Collateral & Marketing 3

Everyone’s having photo shoots right? So, why aren’t you?

Rushing to take photos without a plan or understanding of how to use the images, how to leverage them to expand your brand or even gain new customers-causes you frustration, loss of money and time.

Today, scrolling though your social media feed, it’s seems that EVERYONE is getting photos done and shooting videos and you’re starting to feel left out. But, having images and videos without an idea of what you want to do with them or what you want them to do for your business will have you with a file full of images that you aren’t using.

If you’re strategic, there’s a plan behind your photos. You understand how to leverage them to make the BIGGEST impact, what to wear, what’s your best look, how to guide your photographer so that you get the most from your shoot and then how to market those photos and videos to grow your brand while increasing your income.

You and your business need the best chance possible, to show your talent, convey your message, and convert viewers to potential clients.

2 week online mastermind 1

I spent the majority of my first 5 years of business alone.

Other than the calls from my well-intentioned parents- there really wasn’t anyone calling to making sure I didn’t quit, hold me accountable, and remind me of what I’m capable of.

And, there was absolutely no one there who understood

why I was pushing so hard
why I chose this life when I had so many other options
what it felt like to struggle with money
why I was deciding to go after my passion instead of what was stable

OR

No one that could give advice that I could use…. Not just, you’ll be alright baby, you always seem to land on your feet, etc. etc.

Many of you are new to Women CEO Project, and no doubt, you’ve subscribed because you were looking for that “push”. Whether it be through blog posts, classes, events, or simply inspiration… you were looking for some level of support.

Today, I wanted to let you know, that the doors have opened for our most anticipated program, our 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7th Mastermind Team, that was created precisely, to give you that push.

I’ve seen some amazing things happen when entrepreneurs, who have a unique mindset, link up with other entrepreneurs who understand them, can relate to their day, and who can offer support, encouragement, and tools that work.

I created the group in 2012, this is my 7th team, and I lead the mastermind for 2 weeks teaching a strong curriculum of business lessons that I’ve learned over my 13.5 year business career. Each year, with each team, the lessons get deeper, more streamlined and efficient. I am honored each year, to lead entrepreneurs to

write books,
secure high level meetings & sponsorships
create business academies,
build national business tours,
build successful coaching practices
and paid speaking careers…

Technology has made it possible for me to reach you with support, your own private and online community , and the tools that you need to enhance, grow, and expand your business goals.

This Mastermind is FULL of Global Business, Strategic Marketing, Proposal Writing, Self-Publishing, Financial Planning, Business Development, Sales Funnels in ADDITION to a strong community of support and accountability partners.

Some of these decisions you are making… go into business, do it on the side, quit my job, write a book, how to pay the bills while I follow my passion, what are all of these other full-time business people doing, what am I not doing, how do I help people but not starve, where do I need to be, how do I find the time, why do I feel like I’m doing this all alone…..

Because, you are. But there’s no need to be.

I’ve opened the doors….Today, added new topics, new templates, a payment plan AND the first Mastermind Lesson FREE on next Thursday, July 7th.

To Register for the FREE Lesson, get ALL the details and see if my team is what you’ve been looking for click

#52Questions Journal

 

If your mind was free from clutter, what could you create in your life or in your business?

I’ve been working specifically with women now for 5.5 years and, simply put, we are different.

The way we go about our day, the way we make decisions and definitely the way that we start and grow businesses, is-different.

I’ve found that our mindset- the strength of it or the weaknesses in it- show up immediately when we want to accomplish our BIG goals.
I always have my head to the pulse of the women in business industry, and my hands in some of the most detailed parts of the global women in business sector, and I wrote a journal to address some of my findings.
Based on the feedback from one our most used and life changing products…. a free online course that had a small section for the students to ask themselves simple, yet poignant questions about their lives, I made a discovery.
Many of the students hadn’t re-visited some parts of their dreams and their previous paths in many years.
In the course they were challenged to face themselves, evaluate their current circumstances, and see where they made a turn and what street then needed to start down again.
In the middle of the 52 Questions that I created for women, I included some of the most life-changing questions that I asked myself to go from I can’t do, I can’t go, I don’t have to a life of comfort, some abundance, and a substantially less amount of fear.
This journal will be more of a personal read for you than a business book.
It is my hope that I am continuously granted energy to write books, to coach, to teach and to reach the women across the United States and the most needed parts of the world to women who desire to not just survive, but for once, start to thrive.
It ALL starts with the shape and clarity of your mindset…. ‪#‎52Questions‬
