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)

It’s Almost Course Launch Season … Are You Ready?

We’re coming up on another season of course launches and program enrollments. Are you confident in your ability to look past the shiny bonuses and crazy discounts to pick the course that is the perfect fit for your life and business at this exact moment in your journey?

Well, don’t worry if you’re not because that’s exactly what we’re covering in this week’s episode!

Why You Should Tune In?

I would venture to say every entrepreneur has been lured into purchasing a course or program they didn’t really need and, while it may have been loaded with valuable content, it didn’t yield the expected results.

Taking the wrong course, or even the right course at the wrong time, leads to a loss of time and money.

Both of those resources are extremely valuable and I want to make sure you never waster either of them ever again!

[Tweet “Taking the wrong course, or even the right course at the wrong time, leads to a loss of time and money.”]

What Can You Expect?

I’ll explain five ways you can get really clear on what courses or programs are the perfect fit for you and your business right now so you don’t become distracted or lose any more time or money.

What you won’t get is me telling you my courses are the perfect fit for you. They may or may not be, but after this episode, you’ll be able to determine that for yourself.

Do you need to take a digital detox?

In last week’s episode, I talked about our addiction to technology. This week, I’m challenging you to a digital detox. This is an idea you’re either going to love or hate and, if you lean more towards hating it, you just might need to take a digital detox more than anyone else.

Why is this important for your business?

Technology takes the authenticity out of life.

Relying on technology and social media to inspire new ideas makes us forget our own creativity and causes our brains to become lazy. This is dangerous for everyone, but it’s especially dangerous for entrepreneurs.

What can you expect? 

In today’s episode, I’m going to ask you some questions that, when answered honestly, will let you know if it’s time to take a digital detox.

I’m also going to provide four steps to help your plan for your digital detox to make sure it’s as effective and successful as possible.

Are you addicted to technology?

This week, I’m continuing to talk about how to grow your business while also growing yourself. The topic I’m tackling is our addiction to technology and how we can overcome it, so we can be more productive.

Why is this important for your business?

As online entrepreneurs, we have to use to technology. There’s just no way around it. However, when it gets to the point where we can’t even go to the bathroom without our phone, it’s become a problem. #keepingitreal

Our brains are always going… Thinking up new project ideas, worrying about deadlines, responding to emails … it’s overwhelming.

Taking a step back from technology allows your brain to rest for a second and it also allows you to focus on one task at a time – making your day much more productive.

Technology should help you run your business, not control your life.

What can you expect? 

In today’s episode, I’m giving you some of my best tips and strategies that I use every single day to help combat my addiction to technology and maximize my productivity.

What this episode delivers:

Last week, we talked about sales funnels and why they’re so important for your business. In this week’s episode, I’m breaking down basic sales funnel anatomy and function.

Why is this important for your business?

Having a sales funnel is important for several reasons. Not only does it bring in more leads but it also pre-qualifies your clients before they even get to you. A good sales funnel walks your most qualified clients right to your highest level of service. This frees up more of your time to focus on building your business, instead of working in it.

What can you expect? 

This training for new online service entrepreneurs and will help you gain greater insight to create your first sales funnel.

After listening to this episode and downloading the guide, you’ll have a better understanding of how to build your first sales funnel.

What we’re talking about today:

In episode 12, I explained why an email list is so important and in episode 13, I explained how to grow your list using lead magnets or free gifts. Today, we’re taking it a step further by utilizing the power of email automation after someone has signed up for your free gift or other initial offer.

What can you expect from this training?

I’m going to explain exactly what email automation is, why it’s so important, and provide you with some examples of the types of emails you can automate.

Why is this important for your business?

Automating certain aspects of your business is a sign that, not only are you serious about your business, but you’re serious about your time and your relationship with your clients.

Automation is the first step in making sure your business isn’t your life, by freeing up the time to work on your business instead of working in it.
