My guest this week is someone that I absolutely adore! I've known Andrea Wenburg for a little while and I'm even working with her in a professional capacity so I can have a better understanding of my voice of influence and how I can use that to stand out in a crowded niche.

In today's online marketplace, there are amazing new businesses, coaches, and consultants popping up all the time. Almost every niche these days is saturated and, unless you have a way to make yourself stand out among the crowd, your business might not be around for long.

Having a clear understanding of who are, what you have to say, and how you're going to say it will stop you from being generic and forgettable.

If you're failing to stand out in your niche, have a generic message, or are just not quite at the level of income you expected to be at by this point in your entrepreneurial journey ... make sure you really listen to what Andrea has to say in this powerful interview.

In this episode, you learn how having a clear understanding of your voice of influence will help improve your bottom line, how to turn your burdens into your passion and then into a business, and you'll hear about the incredible new opportunity for how you can learn from Andrea herself.

You're going to fail at some point.
Do you want to know why that's actually a good thing?

We would all love to believe that our business will be a success from day one. But the reality is... that's just not the case.

You will have failures in your business, multiple times.

The good news?

Repetitive losses in your business don't make you a loser. They make you an expert.

If your business or launch isn't going exactly the way you'd hoped, or if you're one of the delusional people who believe their business will be immediately successful, you can't miss this episode.

Losing helps you build better teams, execute your strategies more effectively, have better communication, increase your drive to succeed, and appreciate the wins.

In this episode, I'm talking about the four values which losing provides, and how losing makes you better, stronger, and more strategic.

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 months 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.

 

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.

In this week's episode, we're talking about the 4 things you need to know before you hire a web designer. 

I decided to do this episode because hiring a web designer is a big investment. Knowing these things before hiring a web designer could potentially save you thousands of dollars and countless hours ... not mention some of your sanity.

By the end of this episode, you'll know the difference between a web designer and a web developer, the main things you need to have figured out before you even start looking for a web designer, and the exact questions you need to ask the web designer before hiring them.

My goal is to help you find your new web designer BFF.

In this special Mother's Day edition of The SweetLife Entrepreneur Podcast, I go out of my comfort zone by breaking down 10 lessons I learned from my entrepreneur mom.

Some of these lessons are things she did incredibly well and that she instilled in me. Some of these lessons are things I learned not to do by watching her go through them herself.

While this episode is geared a little more toward entrepreneur parents, these lessons are ones that would serve every entrepreneur well to absorb and implement.

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. 

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.

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