Are You Ready To Take Action In 2018 That Will Finally Yield Real Results For Your Business?

It’s that time of year when people feel compelled to make resolutions even if they know they’re not going to stick to them. Empty resolutions are just a distraction and will keep you from making real progress with your business.

In today’s episode:

Instead of giving in to this behavior, I want to encourage you to set goals with some substance behind them so you’ll not only have the satisfaction of achieving them, but you also have a better business and life.

That’s exactly why I’m hosting my Commitment Week challenge for the third year in a row.

[Tweet “Empty resolutions are just a distraction and will keep you from making real progress in your business.”]

What Can You Expect?

I break down the four core areas we’ll be focusing on during Commitment Week 2018 and in each of the next four episodes of the podcast.

Want to Know the Raw Truth About Being an Entrepreneurial Family?

In this special episode, I’m joined by the amazing Aaron Beach. Not only is Aaron a father of three and an entrepreneur, but he’s also my incredible husband.

While I’ve pretty much always been an entrepreneur, Aaron didn’t begin his entrepreneurial journey until a little over three years ago.

Today, we run multiple businesses, and our household, in a way that allows us to live the life we’ve always wanted.

Why You Should Tune In?

Being an entrepreneur is difficult. Being an entrepreneur with young kids at home is incredibly difficult.

However, Aaron and I are proof that all that struggles and sacrifices are are worth it.

It’s absolutely worth fighting for the life you want, even if you’re not entirely sure what that looks like yet.

[Tweet “It’s absolutely worth fighting for the life you want, even if you’re not entirely sure what that looks like yet.”]

What Can You Expect?

In this episode, Aaron and I get real about the struggles we’ve both experienced during our entrepreneurial journeys, the sacrifices we’ve had to make as a family and how they’ve helped us become a closer unit, and how our kids are becoming change-makers and entrepreneurs themselves.

Are struggling with figuring out how to make your business work around your family life instead of the other way around?

If so, I want to help you fix that immediately!

Entrepreneurship by design means creating a business that allows you to live your ideal lifestyle instead of keeping you from it.

Making a few simple, but critical, changes in your business can help completely turn things around so you never have to miss another moment with your family.

[Tweet “Entrepreneurship by design means creating a business that allows you to live your ideal lifestyle instead of keeping you from it.”]

Are You Where You Thought You Would Be At This Point In 2017?

Did you accomplish all the professional goals you set for yourself this year? Are you proud of the work you’ve done and the results it yielded? If not, a large of the reason is probably that you didn’t have a clear plan in place before 2017 even began.

Luckily for you, I’m here to help make sure that doesn’t happen for 2018.

Why You Should Tune In?

When you don’t have a clear plan in place for a new year, you don’t know what to work on or when to work on it in order to accomplish your larger goals for the year.

You need to treat your micro business like a corporation.

Don’t just try a hundred different things and hope one of them sticks. Instead, go into 2018 knowing exactly what products or services you’ll be launching throughout the year.

[Tweet “You need to treat your micro business like a corporation.“]

What Can You Expect?

In this episode, I’m discussing the three key things you need to know right now in order to plan and conquer 2018 so you can feel proud of all you’ve accomplished when you reflect back one year from now.

Want To Create an Online Course but Hate Technology?

It’s no secret I kill technology. I don’t have a technological bone in my body and this was made very apparent when it was time to create my first online course and membership website. I struggled for years and wasted thousands of dollars … until I discovered Kajabi.

Kajabi is a platform that helps entrepreneurs create, market, sell, and distribute their knowledge online. Having been one of Kajabi’s first customers several years ago, I am extremely excited to bring you this interview with it’s Co-Founder, Travis Rosser.

Travis started his entrepreneurial journey selling oranges as a child on his family farm and has worked his way up to creating a platform that has allowed other entrepreneurs to generate more than 500 million dollars in revenue!

He’s also a father of three boys who’s based his entire corporate structure and culture around his family life so he never has to miss a moment with his children.

Why You Should Tune In?

I know from experience just how costly fighting technology can be. I also know from experience just how profitable knowledge-commerce is.

Online courses and membership websites create passive income and it’s widely known that passive income leads to more time and freedom to live the life you want.

[Tweet “I struggled for years and wasted thousands of dollars … until I discovered Kajabi.”]

What Can You Expect?

In this episode, you’ll get to hear Travis’ full entrepreneurial journey, my story of struggling to make other platforms work in the beginning and how Kajabi saved me, why Travis protects the company culture he’s worked intentionally to create, and how Kajabi can help you stop being afraid of technology and start making money selling your knowledge.

What’s a Lifestyle Entrepreneur Learning Plan?

Becoming an entrepreneur means you agree to embark on a journey of endless learning. As with anything else in life, this journey will go a lot smoother if you have a plan.

And this is where the “Lifestyle Entrepreneur Learning Plan” comes in.

“An Entrepreneur Learning Plan is list of things you need to learn over a defined period of time, to grow yourself and your business.” April Beach

[Tweet “An Entrepreneur Learning Plan is list of things you need to learn over a defined period of time, to grow yourself and your business”]

Why Tune In To This Episode?

It’s important to always learn, grow, adapt, and evolve. It’s the only way to keep your business relevant and healthy.

Having a plan in place for learning new systems, platforms, skills, etc. will allow you to not become distracted by the overwhelming amount of information entrepreneurs must consume.

With a learning plan, you’ll have the confidence and power to know exactly what you should be learning and when; saving you time, money, and frustration.

[Tweet “Becoming an entrepreneur means you agree to embark on a journey of endless learning.”]

What Can You Expect?

I’ll explain exactly what a “Lifestyle Entrepreneur Learning Plan” is, provide examples of what one looks like, how it can help you solve problems, and why this is so critical to the success of your business.

4 Quick Steps to Create a Sample ELP:

  • Make a list of the items you need to learn at this time
  • Take an inventory of the courses you’ve already bought and downloads you’ve already received, and categorize your trainings into “skills groups”
  • Make a list of what skills you’re missing and go find those trainings
  • Create a 12-18 Month Learning Calendar of what you plan to learn and by when, based on the current phase of business you’re in right now (find out what phase you’re in here)
