I've Been Struggling With This My Entire Career. Ready or Not: I'm Getting What I Wished For
Picture yourself walking down a crowded, sun-soaked street in Morocco. The warmth of the stones seeping through your sandals. The spicy scents from several vendors and restaurants wafting out onto the street. And the noise of dozens of conversations chattering around you. Prices negotiated. Laughter erupting. Vendors hawking their wares. Waiters gesturing you into their restaurants.
As you continue along weaving your way through the crush of people you start to feel a little claustrophobic. It would be nice to just sit and maybe grab a bite to eat.
How do you choose?
Do you pick the place with the guy shouting about the sale? The cheapest deal? Or the one that boasts food "just like America"? Or do you escape to the little restaurant tucked into the shade that simply promises the best Makouda and a complimentary glass of mint tea while you wait?
For me, it's Makouda and mint tea all the way.
You see all these styles of marketing everywhere you go. Whether you're walking down a crowded marketplace in Marrakesh or surfing the net.
Every entrepreneur's goal is more visibility.
And if you're like me, visibility is this double-edged sword you've desperately been seeking more of without ever wanting to APPEAR desperate. Double-edged because we always want more people to pay attention until they do - then it's "holy sh*t people are actually paying attention."
But visibility IS something I wanted more of (and I'm betting you do too). I began talking about it with my business coach. Honestly, I don't know much about the law of attraction but as soon as I started talking about it? Offers started landing in my inbox. I kid you not. All of those incremental steps I've been taking day after neverending day, week in and month out in my business started to get noticed.
In some ways, it felt completely out of the blue and all at once. In other ways, it's something I've been preparing for over the last couple of years.
I've been sitting on these opportunities for weeks only whispering them to a few close business peeps but FINALLY, I can share what's been happening. And how awesome news for me, is actually awesome news for you too. :)
First, I was approached by the amazing team at Ultimate Bundles. Have you heard of them? I'm going to be honest and say that I hadn't.
They were putting together a massive collection of kick-ass resources specifically for entrepreneurs (my peeps!) and they wanted to include my book. (wait...seriously?!)
I still get a little dumbfounded when people say they love my book. Despite the fact that it was an Amazon bestseller or the dozens of 5-star reviews it's all still a little surreal. So I kind of wondered what the catch was...turned out there wasn't one.
And when I could see big names jumping on board like Zig Ziglar, Nir Eyal, Jeff Goins, Josh Turner & Michael Hyatt just to name-drop a few ;) I knew it was the real deal.
Here was the opportunity to get my book into the hands of hundreds (thousands?) of more readers. More visibility? Ready or not, here I come.
The Ultimate StartUp Bundle is a library of over 60+ eBooks and eCourses designed specifically for entrepreneurs at any stage of business. They've also created the StartUp Roadmap that will help you figure out exactly where you're at and the resources that will be most meaningful for you right now. So you'll never feel overwhelmed. There are some awesome bonuses like free months of service from SamCart, Convertkit, Thinkific, & Clickfunnels. All for $97 US. It's a flash sale that's only happening August 3rd - 8th.
If you're interested (and why wouldn't you be?) you can sign up for my email list and I'll be in touch during the sale to remind you of early bird specials and my bonus just for you guys. ;)
Whatever you do? Keep hustling, you never know when you're standing on the edge of something big.
