Sharing Favorite Biz Books and Mags

If you are a web entrepreneur who loves to ready business and/or tech books and magazines feel free to post some of your recommendations via the comment box below or inside our Facebook conversation.

Let me kick off this conversation with a few of my favorite reads:

The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss is an oldie but goodie!
Happy Women Live Better By Valorie Burton for us highly driven, super serious women in business.

And right now I am indulging in a new productivity book, called Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time.

I’d love to know what’s on your reading list. Feel free to share now.

Crazy Things Entrepreneurs Do: Who Are You Really Focusing On?

sistasense-16-01

Today my day began with one powerful message:

Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters
Not the waiters or procrastinators who like what you’ve got but are never quite ready to get in.

First let that sink in…
A few weeks ago I shared my focus word for the new year is ‘Different‘.

This morning I took down practically ALL of my trainings and starter kits (an early spring cleaning of sorts) with only only 4 remaining for now (the last few are coming down in a few days too).

This is crazy. I know.
Who takes down offers?

I’ve always left ALL of them up there, waiting for you until you were ready for them.

But this year is all about doing things differently.

Truth Be Told
There will always be folks who tell you your stuff is GREAT and how much they can’t WAIT to participate! Then crickets… you eagerly await them, even find ways to accommodate them; pulling out your hair until that final moment when they fail to appear.

In Their Absence Let One Truth Become Crystal Clear
Business runs on action takers NOT active talkers.

Talkers seldom show up. Check the folks you find yourself listening to because breaking your back to please others back fires more often than many of us care to admit.

Commit to Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters
Everything has a season.

As a recovering ‘Over Accomodator’ I know this is the season to do things differently.

Sometimes its hard to set hard deadlines, take things down or even say ‘no’. But waiting for the waiters, delays ones ability to grow.

Different 2016 Has Begun
This year ….
I choose Action Takers over Active Talkers.
I choose to stop creating accommodations for those who continue to delay.
I choose to focus on finding ‘Doers’ while Firing Up the Doer inside of you!
I choose these three things, perhaps you should too.

Know that Opportunities Expire
I am truly sorry if you miss or missed out on the SistaSense goodies that are now gone, BUT if you are a fire starter ready to work with me – this is where we are:

The last Triple X Success Virtual Workshop is next weekend
Blogging for Business 2016 Mastermind is Happening Now
Registration for Sweet Retreats Ends in One Week

In a few days these links will be gone too.

We are one day away from the second month of this new year.

Time waits for no one, which means waiting is no longer an option.

Let’s not spend this year focused on folks who aren’t quite ready to tap into their greatness.

Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters

Focus on Firing Up the Fire Starter In you.

This my plan. Hopefully it inspires you to continue working on yours (smile).

To your continued success,

(video) 5 Steps to Fire Up Your Funds and Focus

Today let’s talk about smart ways to fire up your funds and your focus this year! I want to share my latest #FireAndFocus periscope session with you, in which we talk about 5 Steps … Essential clarity questions you need to ask yourself if you want to seriously work on your web vision and make things happen.

Step #1: Ask Yourself What you want to Learn?
In my first few years as a web designer, a barely charged $100 for projects because I was afraid. I didn’t know how to do certain things like setting up eCommerce stores, so I significantly reduced my prices. Over the years I’ve learned how to build eCommerce stores, custom wordpress websites, landing pages, membership sites and more. Expanding my skill set has helped me to generate thousands of dollars in revenue each month. Not to mention the fact that last year, among other things I liked how to use periscope to market my business, which helped to bring in at minimum $100-300 in extra sales every time I teach a live stream session.

The more you know the more you AND your business can grow (period).

Inside my Triple X Success workshop (catch virtual here), I teach aspiring web entrepreneurs how to increase sales, set up their own stores and create working auto-responders to build their lists. Think about those things you want and need to learn this year to make your business better.

Step #2: Ask Yourself What Do you Want to Create?
One SistaSense Motto that I would like to share with you is this, “Learn How to Create With Intention.”

Each year I intentionally work on making my signature offers better while creating new offers like: virtual training programs, VIP Services and physical products to better serve the entrepreneurs that I aim to reach. Last year among my best selling new offers, were the SistaSense CD Starter Kits, like the Get Paid to Teach Series. As a matter of fact, during my live Triple X Success workshop in North Carlina, attendees participated in a ‘Create with Intention’ intensive in which they prepped, packaged and self-published their own CD.

Ask yourself, what offers do you want to create this year. Then create a calendar of your tasks and stick to it! I would love to tell you all about 7 Key Essentials to Triple X Your Success this year, so you can begin creating with intention. Join us inside the virtual Triple X Success Workshop to discover my process and work on yours.

Step #3: Ask Yourself Who Do you want to Reach?
There are millions of entrepreneurs in this world, but I personally enjoy working with web women entrepreneurs who have a passion for creating information-focused products and services. The clearer you become about who you want to reach online, the better chances you have of actually reaching them. In addition to the workshop, this year I have also launched Triple X Success Digital Content Development Solutions, the SistaSense Inner Circle and our upcoming SweetRetreats Mastermind in Montego Bay Jamaica, because each of these offers aim to meet the growing needs of the entrepreneurs that I serve. Listen to your clients. Take a good look at your customers. Define your ideal target person. Wash, rinse and repeat this process until you become crystal clear about who you want to reach. Inside of the Triple X Success Workshop we can start by working on your customer base and community building efforts.

Step #4: Ask Yourself How Much do you want to Make?
When it comes to revenue goals, you have the ‘Feel Good’ amount that you dream of making and the ‘Real Good’ amount that you can realistically reach. Inside Triple X Success we combine the two, so you can take a look what I like to call your “Money Markers”, the amount of money you’d like to make compared to the offers you sell, your prices and the number of items you can realistically sell each month. Whether you have dreams of reaching the 4 figure, 5 figure, or 6 figure mark each month, you have to take a step back and have a clear view of all that you provide in your business. You can’t just simply put stuff out there and hope that eventually things will fall into place and you’ll make the can’t of money you want to make.

Take these words to heart: “I used to thing life had a plan for me, until I realized it had to be planed by me.” One of my first SistaSense systems revolves around the importance of planning if you want to make a profit. So stop working harder and start working smarter, but taking more time out of your schedule to not simply dream about six figures, but create a solid plan of action.

Step #5: Ask Yourself What Do you want to Sell?
When it comes to firing up my funds I focus on two main types of offers, “My Clearly Defined Signature Packages” and a few “New Annual Offers to better serve my community”. Beyond what you can create, think about what you want to focus on selling. Clarity Calls, Jumpstart Your Business, and the 5 Page Web Package, are some of my best clearly defined signature offers that sell well for me each year. The Inner Circle and SweetRetreats and the 28 Day Challenge are new offers that I focus on selling to reach new clients while better serving my best clients.

Take may advice, if you want to increase your sales you have to get better at selling. Success starts with having a clear understand of who you want to reach and why they should need/want to buy your offers.


Are you now ready to get fired up and focused?

Fatigue and Frustration to Fire and Focus

I entered last year ready to take on the world. As is the case with every year, God provided me with a very clear sense of purpose, “Inspire other women to feel Fierce, Focused, and Fired Up!” With that vision, I hosted my annual NC Weekend workshop in January and committed myself to leading one FireStarter Circle Mastermind every quarter. It all seemed like it was going great, until February came and I fell into a rut. In between all the new business and buzz I felt drained. For weeks I struggled to get through my daily projects or even get out of bed. There were days that I felt overwhelmed by everything and too tired to do anything. But I worked through it until I got through it. This is my story of fatigue and frustration turned into fire and focus.

I admit, I struggle to stay on top of my diabetes. Eventually I got tired of being tired and pushed myself to get back on track. At the same time I took my fare share of relax and reflection days to both disconnect from the web world and reconnect with those things that I genuinely enjoyed. As a result my web work started to pile up a bit, but it was worth it because I needed that time to figure me out. At some point I found myself writing again, which lead to the creation of my StartHerUp Guide and inclusion in the anthology, “When Women Become Business Owners.” Outside of working on other people’s web businesses, I took the time to really think about my own business – the things that I found frustrating vs those things that filled me with fire and focus.

By April I was ready to spring back into action. I started asking my SistaSense community questions like, “Are you tired of being tired? Do you feel drained; caught between all the things that you want to do, need to do and can’t seem to find the time to do?” Talking to myself out loud, my motivational videos and calls at that time were about learning from these personal frustrations and encouraging others to power through what they were going through.

When I really looked at the source of my fatigue and frustration, it was a combination of my health issues and honestly feeling like all that new web work was taking me away from what I wanted to do. I wanted to teach more, spend less time working strictly on web design projects and triple my revenue. These goals ultimately lead me to make some very bold business moves. By the summer I realized that I needed to shut down a few things to fire up others.

I closed my web design services, launched my VIP Development program and found myself feeling like me again. Getting back into creation mode I discovered even smarter ways to make more doing fewer projects while creating awesome LPPs (low price point products) . By end of summer, early fall I launched my new SistaSense CD Starter Kits, completed 3 masterminds, attended several speaking engagements and wrapped up my projects for my first VIP clients. Sales are now better than ever and I honestly feel like things are just getting fired up.

This is my story and guess what? I am you. I get tired. I get frustrated. I have days when I question why I do what I do and if I want to keep going. Through it all I just keep telling myself the only way I can fail is if I quit. I don’t stop, I can’t stop. For me broke is not an option, but I do take breaks to recharge myself and redefine my vision. I encourage you to do the same. Life is challenging for all of us. Regardless of who you are, where you are and what’s going on, continue to power through to your best you. It’s all about that fire and focus …. for real!
