Work From Home Biz: How to Keep Work and Home Separate

Work From Home Biz: How to Keep Work and Home Separate

The Craziness of 2020 means that most of us now get to work from home.

Yeah!!!

The flip side is, that means most of us now get to work from home.

If you’re like me, there hasn’t really been that must difference, except now my husband works from home too.

I’ve been running a home-based business for 20 years now (showing my age) and I’ve had to refine some really great systems so I don’t have the following problem you may possibly be experiencing:

  • When you’re working you feel guilty about spending time with your loved ones who are also at home
  • When you’re spending time with your loved ones, you feel guilty you aren’t working! (we just can’t win)
  • You always feel like you are “switched on” and always thinking and talking about work
  • Your home is starting to feel more like your work place and less like your sanctuary
  • You seem to work longer hours, always responding to messages and emails…but not necessarily getting more done or making more money
  • Your home is either incredibly neat (work avoidance) or totally trashed (we’ll talk about that)

In less than 30 minutes, I’ll share with you structures I’ve put in place so:

  • I have clear boundaries about when and where I work and when I stop (and how to set the clock again when boundary creep steps in)
  • When my husband is home, what is allowed to happen in the office… and what is forbidden in the bedroom!
  • How to set up different parts of your home for efficiency
  • How to set up areas of your home for different energies
  • The mindset that is needed so you can perform as a CEO of your business, instead of a work at home slave
  • Plus a few scripts you can use to set boundaries with your partner / your clients / your kids / YOU

This will be fun.

How to Structure Contra Deals in Biz

How to Structure Contra Deals in Biz

Contra deals in business… they can be a brilliant way for you to grow your business, especially if cash flow (a.k.a. money in the bank) is tight.

They can also be a great way to:

  • Give away your services when you should really be charging what you are worth
  • Lose friendships
  • Continue to over deliver and lose money and time
  • Drive you crazy with frustration when the service you are getting in return is slow and not what you expected

On this live training I’ll cover:

  • Exactly what a contra deal is and what it isn’t
  • When a contra deal is a great idea and when it is wrong
  • What to say if you are asked for a contra deal and you want to be paid instead
  • How to ask for a contra deal
  • The red flags to watch out for that means your contra will end in tears
  • The essential way to structure a contra deal so it will be successful
  • How to protect yourself legally
  • Contras that have worked for me and ones that flopped
  • Ask your questions live and I’ll stay and help you with any contra deal issues you are facing

7 Signs Video Marketing Is a Waste of Your Time

7 Signs Video Marketing Is a Waste of Your Time

If you are a coach, consultant or awesomely clever service provider AND you want to use video to attract great new clients AND you don’t want to waste your time… Then this episode is for you.

Let’s face it, creating great value videos for your business takes work plus courage when you first start out. It’s really, really frustrating when you put in the effort and then all you seem to hear is crickets.

Or even more frustrating (because you can waste your time for years) is this: you get people watching, saying how great you are, but there’s no money showing up in the bank to make the effort worth anything more than a “feel-good” exercise.

You’re in business baby. Let’s make your videos and marketing actually attract awesome clients who PAY YOU.

In this episode I dive straight in so you know the 7 BIG reasons doing videos may be a waste of your time and you’ll know exactly which holes to plug in your video marketing strategy so every one of your videos you work so hard to create, will work for you and your biz.

How to Convert a Retreat to a Great Zoom Conference

How to Convert a Retreat to a Great Zoom Conference

2020 “The Year of Creative Adapting”.

  • Change from helping your clients face to face to meeting virtually via Zoom? – Easy!
  • Change from working with your clients personally for multiple sessions to finally creating that online course so they can get results without needing you (as much)? – done!
  • Change from working from an office with your local staff to work from home and run a virtual team? – Loving it!
  • Change from running a transformational retreat style conference, promised to be delivered in a luxury hotel with intimate get togethers and deep personal development work to Zoom? WHAT??!!

How do you adapt a truly transformational event to virtual (just 2 days before it was due to start) and make it so people rave about it afterwards?

How do you make it NOT feel like a marathon zoom session for days? (nightmare)

That’s what you’ll learn today from our Guest speaker Joanna Martin from www.oneofmany.co.uk

This interview is a segment from the in-depth masterclass Joanna and I recorded for Day 5 of the Video Marketing Summit 2021 that starts next week. You can join for free over here.

The session is on How To Create a Movement With Video and just near the end I asked Joey how she adapted her retreats when lockdown was announced in the UK earlier this year?

Woah… firehose volume of gold!

This section is fairly short and packed full of really actionable and inspiring info.

So if you’ve ever wondered how to make your retreats, conferences or even, let’s face it, any zoom meeting engaging and transformational, listen in.

Oh and make sure you register for the FREE Video Marketing Summit 2021.

You can register for free and the first day of masterclasses goes live on Monday 30th November and then there are free sessions and live daily classes, every day for the entire week.

See you there!

How Much Will People Pay? Demonstration. The Value in Story

How Much Will People Pay? Demonstration. The Value in Story

We have fixed ideas on how much we think people will pay for our products and services. But how correct are we?

I certainly was proved wrong in this totally unscripted, and impromptu video with Jason Van Genderen who is one of my guest experts speaking at Video Marketing Summit 2021.

We shot this film after we had finished recording Jason’s masterclass session on how he has used the power of story in video to get 38 MILLION syndicated views of a video he filmed on his iPhone just a few months ago. And teaches how to do the same in your own business.

I had no idea what Jason was going to do in the video and he ended up putting me on the spot to see if he can change my mind on the value of a piece of rubber! And he did (and I’m a hard bargainer)!

This is such a great demonstration on the power of story to influence value.

Plus, it’s also a great demonstration of Jason using story telling principles to teach… about story telling principles

I’d love to hear from you:

How much would you have paid?

What story telling principles do you reckon were essential to changing my perceived value of the object?

Oh and super important: What action can you apply to your own business videos from Jason’s demo?
