9 Lessons from A Lit Up Partnership

Have you heard of A Lit Up Partnership? It’s where I work with clients, not for a set payment, but for 15% of the revenue they generate in our work together for 6 months.
I believe in breaking down barriers, being innovative, and creating opportunity in this industry. A Lit Up Partnership was created around those beliefs, and the results have been mind-blowing!
That’s why I’m so excited to be re-launching A Lit Up Partnership and opening two spots in August! (Click here to learn more!) In celebration of launching a third round of this amazing process, I’m sharing all about the lessons learned from BOTH rounds of A Lit Up Partnership…
Here are 9 of the biggest lessons I learned through this process AND how you can apply them to your own business!

Sometimes I Hate The Coaching Industry…

Yeah, we’re about to get REALLY real.
The truth is, I’ve felt this way on and off for awhile, but it wasn’t until I went to dinner with a fellow entrepreneur last weekend who I told I was going through a “I hate the coaching industry” phase and she hugged me and nodded in TOTAL agreement, offering “Girl, I get it. Happens to me all the time”, and then one of my own clients mentioned her occasional disillusionment with the coaching space that I KNEW I needed to talk about it.
So #letsgetreal
Sometimes I seriously hate the coaching industry.
Sometimes I feel like everyone is full of crap.
Sometimes I feel like we’re SO obsessed with results but NOT obsessed (or transparent) with what goes on to get them.
Sometimes I feel like there’s WAY too much pressure on coaches to create results and sometimes I feel like there’s not ENOUGH.
Sometimes I feel like it’s all a little multi-level-marketing-ish.
Sometimes I feel like there are A LOT of people not meant to be entrepreneurs.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m one of them.

But here’s the truth…

My Specific Practices For Getting Empowered Around Money

Money is such a charged topic isn’t it? It can make us feel deliriously happy (new client pays her first invoice) OR like a total failure (monthly income is NOT where you want it to be, or is simply non-existent).
But the truth is, that its usually LESS about what happens (because we could easily reframe either of these situations to be good or bad) and MORE about the level of empowerment you feel around money.
Let’s check in:

The Top Ten Habits of Wildly Successful Online Entrepreneurs

It can be so tempting to chase that magic pill that grants you all the success you’ve been desiring (ideally with none of the effort, am I right?).
In fact, a lot of the marketing to online entrepreneurs that I see lately suggests that there IS a hidden secret to success that you just haven’t uncovered yet.
I’m here to tell you that there is NO secret to success, but if there was… the secret would be to not believe that everyone is hiding a secret from you.
The “secret” is showing up, doing the right things, and creating habits that contribute to the success you desire.
Over the past few years, I’ve built two successful online business and worked with dozens of entrepreneurs to create wildly successful businesses of their own. Even though each entrepreneur’s path looks a little different, I’ve discovered some major themes that are true for myself and everyone I’ve connected with. Here are the top ten habits of wildly successful entrepreneurs:

More Connections = More Results in Your Business

When I started my business I felt like everyone must have had it more together than me! I did NOT want to reach out, connect, or collaborate because there was a part of me that wasn’t standing in my power or giving myself any credit.
Now, I know that I probably had it way more together than a lot of people, but more importantly than that, I realize that it actually didn’t matter either way!
What matters is that we’re all in this together, we’re all entrepreneurs working for ourselves and often by ourselves, and that we’re in this business because we crave to serve and connect with others.
Collaboration and connection can REALLY grow our businesses. For me, it’s given support, referrals, opportunities, resources that I know I would have taken significantly longer to create on my own. So let’s remember that collaboration and connection are not only welcomed but also necessary to building and growing our tribes, our businesses, and ourselves.

Visibility that feels good AND grows your business

When I recently opened up the application process for A Lit Up Partnership, one of the most interesting things that came out of the three week process was the realization that visibility remains one of the biggest challenges for new entrepreneurs.
The amount of people who indicated they REALLY wanted to win the partnership, and then stopped participating during the visibility challenge was significant.  Many of them personally reached out and told me that was a HUGE challenge for them.
In fact, statistically speaking that’s where the most people BY FAR dropped out of the partnership process.
Visibility is key in growing your business, but I no longer want to just talk about getting visible… I want to talk about doing it in a way that feels good to YOU.

How Content Helped Me Build a Multiple 6-Figure Business

Content has literally built my business.
It’s taken me from a brand new entrepreneur with no network to a multiple six-figure earner in under two years.

It’s helped me to know my tribe deeply, and make sure I’m always delivering what they want to hear in a way that feels good to me.
Here’s the mindset, strategy, and execution behind using content to build relationships, grow your tribe, and convert fans into paying clients.

Creating Habits for Success

I know that at the start of the year so many of us are focused on setting goals for our business, implementing changes, and identifying the need or desire to do things differently.
There truly is NO secret to success. The “secret” is showing up, doing the right things, and creating habits that contribute to the success you desire.
Plans and goals are great, but it’s the habits we create that bring them to life!

How to Plan Effectively in Your Business

Business plans are so valuable as solopreneurs and serve as one way to support us in staying focused and creating results quickly (rather than trying to do #allthethings and seeing what sticks).
With the new year, there’s a lot of focus on planning right now. Let’s talk about how to transform our relationship with planning in our business so that we can make it more enjoyable AND follow through on our intentions!

9 Lessons from A Lit Up Partnership

Over the past 6 months, I ran a process called A Lit Up Partnership, where I (along with 4 other coaches) worked with clients, not for a set payment, but for 15% of the revenue they generate in our work together over 6 months.
It was a really cool and interesting experiment that allowed us to look at a new business model and learn a ton along the way.
I believe in breaking down barriers, being innovative, and creating opportunity in this industry. A Lit Up Partnership was created around those beliefs, and the results were mind-blowing!
That’s why I’m so excited to be re-launching A Lit Up Partnership and opening one spot to start in January. (Click here to learn more!) To celebrate, I’ve been reflecting on all the lessons that came out of the first round of partners.
Here are 9 of the biggest lessons I learned through this process AND how you can apply them to your own business!

How I Quickly Created Massive Results in My Business

You hear the success stories:

  • In less than 6 months I filled my coaching practice and created a wait list
  • I’ve had consistent five-figure months since my second month in business
  • I made more in the first 5 months in my business than I did in a YEAR at my old job.

And let’s be honest… sometimes they sound like bullshit.
But for me… all of this is true.
I don’t say this to brag… but because I want you to know that it’s POSSIBLE for you.
I created all of these results in my coaching business not because I knew a “secret” that no one else knew, and not because I followed a step by step program, but because I figured out what worked for me and implemented.
If you’ve been following me for a while, it should come as no surprise to you that there were 3 key areas that I focused my energy on that I contribute to my success… Mindset, Strategy, and Execution.
Here’s how I implemented each of these early on in my business to create those results:

How to Effectively Repurpose Your Content During the Holidays

Lately I’ve been reflecting on how different my life looks now than it did just over 3 years ago.
The me of 3 years ago was SUPER stressed and overwhelmed leading up to the holidays and NEVER took time off because I wanted my employees to be able to take the time.
I would run around like crazy, always ended up buying premade stuff for Thanksgiving (because I didn’t have time to make it), bought Christmas presents on Christmas Eve (after I left work that is), and even forgot to get my husband a Christmas card 2 years in a row.
Last year I had the extreme pleasure of making my own schedule, not living in burn out mode, and getting to truly ENJOY what the holidays are really about rather than just rushing through them.
To make things even better I got to take 2 ski trips with my husband plus go to New York to see his family.
And I plan on doing the exact same thing this year… trips are already booked!
One of the reasons that I’m able to do all this is because I have my content planned out in advance and I repurpose it effectively so that I can spend more time actually enjoying the holidays rather than feeling like I’m chained to my business.
With Christmas right around the corner, let’s talk about how you can repurpose your content so you can spend more time and energy with family and friends this holiday season!
