Six years ago Karen sold an eBook to the tune of $50,000 per year. It’s an internet marketer’s dream come true, making a full time income selling one product, online. But then something happened, and it not only robbed her of her dream, it robbed her of her courage, determination and self-awareness.
Karen was in my Inner Circle class last month when I asked for people to start submitting their applications to have me review their business. The plan was simple- I’ll pick 2-3 people every single month, review their business, and tell them what I would do if I owned the company, giving specific steps they need to take to double (or triple) their income, and revealing where their problems were. As an Angel Investor, I’m pouring my hard earned money into small businesses. There is STRICT criteria for the businesses I invest into. I’m looking for marketable products, people who are already making great money and are stuck, and can’t grow from there. These same methods I’m using to decide who to invest into, are being used in my Inner Circle, as I show what really makes a business succeed.
Everyone was super excited when I told Karen that I could teach her how to make 6-7 figures with her business, if she had already been making $50,000 per year selling eBooks. This is not only a great income for anyone, but it demonstrated she has the skillset and wherewithal to build a successful small business online. The thing that shocked me is she walked away from it, and is now ‘struggling’ and ‘trying’ to build another business. She’s not happy, her website shows it, and she didn’t even realize that her choices sabotaged her success and made her sink into a pit of not only doubting herself, but thinking it was all a fantasy, the success she had experienced. She even told me she thought it was all ‘luck’ and THIS must be the reason she was having so much trouble now.
I have to warn you, I am HEAVY HITTING NO HOLDS BACK on this video. I give it to Karen STRAIGHT UP. Now listen, Karen knows I love her, I honor her and there is no going into this consultation with a need for me to reassure Karen I’m not upset with her, or that she has to ‘please’ me and for some reason she hasn’t. There’s NONE of these dysfunctions and codependent stuff going on. By the way, I see A LOT of this kind of thing in groups and forums online. But in this case, Karen knows I have her best interest in my heart, and I have less than 15 minutes to pull her OUT of the pit, wipe off her boots, give it to her straight and get her making money again.
How One Business Owner Went From Selling $50,000 Of eBooks Per Year To Multiple Six-Figures
So when you watch this, realize….. I was so shocked by what Karen was doing, I might sound like I’m upset. But I’m not. I was thinking of the hundreds of thousands of small business owners I meet every single day who are HOLDING themselves back just like Karen was. Listen, I’m a business owner. Not someone looking for popularity or to make people love me. These people need help and I HAVE their answers. AS I am giving Karen this consultation (that is on the video below) I’m THINKING of all of my readers, small business coaching clients, people on my social media profiles and more who I have met, who could be living the dream life, making six figures but sadly, they sit in a pit holding themselves back. Some in self pity, others buying into the lie that they ‘don’t know where to start’ and others still looking for their ‘big idea.’
When Karen saw my review, she not only cried, she laughed! Real hard! Because this is not only exactly what she needed, this is what she’s been praying for! AND…… she’s on her way to six figures. Using her skill. At least that is what she told me. I pray she is. I see too many people who don’t do this. THAT is why I created the Inner Circle Mastermind and Coaching group where we can help hold people accountable, give them the exact steps they need, and every month they can watch me do this with 2-3 other businesses. They can also get their questions answered on our Q & A day and meet with me in a live webinar! This is not a group where a ton of people are asking a bazillion questions and people who haven’t even made six figures yet are giving them answers that are totally wrong. NO.. this is a group of serious minded entrepreneurs who are making things happen. AND it’s only $47. ridiculous, I know. …. (For more info on the Inner Circle go here)
I decided to let all of you see just ONE of the three consultations and reviews I did this month. I hope this pulls some of you out of the pit and helps you to go make your eBooks, videos and courses so you too can make more money. Your business can be the absolute answer you need to get out of debt, start taking vacations, pouring money into worthy causes and lay your head on your pillow at night knowing THIS IS your life, and no one can take it away from you.
