Are You Brave Enough To See Your Business Honestly?

Are You Brave Enough To See Your Business Honestly?

Today,I want you to do something a little uncomfortable:

I want you to score your business (if you’re brave enough) on a scale from 1-10, 1 being a total newbie business owner, and 10 being a multi-million dollar, totally-killing-it-influencer.

So for example, if you’re a 3, you might have a business going with a few clients, but right now you don’t have funnels or systems in place.

A 5 might be a business with one funnel and one product who’s doing fairly well, but isn’t doing a lot of self promotion.

A 7 might be a business that makes great, consistent money, but has you working way too hard because your systems aren’t quite there.

I encourage you to do this because really? There’s no shame in any game. Every single one of us started at zero, and it’s important to know where you’re at with the basics.

Facing The Pivotal Moments In Your Brand

Facing The Pivotal Moments In Your Brand

There are moments that totally shift the way you look at things. All of a sudden, up is down and right is left, and you have to change your course.

Great Marketers Do This – Do You?

Great Marketers Do This – Do You?

Many entrepreneurs get stuck when it comes to branding, because they get stuck in their story.

And what I mean by that is they feel their story — the deepest and most impactful parts of it that connect with their audience — are “too much” of something.

Too personal.

Too vulnerable.

Too painful.

The idea of sharing your story is terrifying. Talking about it on a livestream feels like such a big task. So you don’t share your story, and your brand suffers because sitting in your story is keeping you stuck.

You have to share your story. You have to feel it, (even the parts that aren’t glamorous), and sit in it…then allow other people to feel it with you.

Now, you can’t just share the hard parts of your story – you also have to bridge it to your customer. You want to say, “Yeah, that sucked, but the story doesn’t end there. Look what I did next. Look at how I changed things.”

Learning how to be a great marketer using storytelling is about breadcrumbs. It’s about dropping the breadcrumbs that allow people to see themselves inside of your story.

Convenience And Entrepreneurship Don’t Mix

One of the most commonly asked questions is, “Jen, how do I know what I should be focusing on?”

Well, let’s start with what you shouldn’t be focusing on. It’s one thing I really see messing people up right now — the C word (no, not the one you might be thinking of).
