I honestly just like giving people practical strategies to make enough money to live the happiest, freest, funnest life they can.
Have you ever gotten the chance to attend a real-life entrepreneur event?
When I first started my business in 2012, it was easy to make excuses as to why I couldn’t go to any events. My business wasn’t making enough (or any) money yet, I didn’t live in an entrepreneur epicenter like Silicon Valley or New York City, and honestly I didn’t feel like a legit entrepreneur. (Hello imposter syndrome!)
It’s easy to find excuses for not getting out of your work cave. You’ve got work to do! If you’re anything like me, you wear a million hats and have a to-do list that gets longer every day, not shorter.
But that’s exactly the problem.
Right before I attend a conference, I always have the following thought:
“Ugh, I probably shouldn’t have paid for this. I have too much work to do and I probably won’t get that much out of this event anyway.”
But that’s NEVER how I feel after the conference….
After an event or conference, I leave feeling on top of the world, like I’ve got an army of support around me. I’m utterly inspired and ready for whatever comes next.
After an event or conference, I walk away with simple solutions to problems I didn’t even know I had (as well as solutions to problems I thought would take months to fix!).
The most frustrating thing about attending an in-person event is that the biggest result is the shift in your mindset. You go home from the event a different person. This causes you to think differently about what’s possible, act differently towards making shit happen, and ultimately get the results that you want in your business (more clients, more profit, more fun, more growth).
Here are some of the specific results that I’ve gotten from the events I’ve attended:
Though I highly recommend investing in going to at least ONE super awesome far away event each year, you don’t need to go to some huge conference in the Bahamas to start seeing the benefits of meeting entrepreneurs in person.
Here’s how I find events to attend throughout the year:
Once per year, Emmy Award Winner Natalie MacNeil opens the doors to her year-long business incubator for female entrepreneurs, The Conquer Club. As a member of The Conquer Club you have an option to join Natalie at her annual live event. I say RUN don’t walk to sign up.
I’ve been a part of The Conquer Club since 2014 in different capacities. Let me tell you: there is nothing quite like Natalie MacNeil live in person. She has an ability to hold space for people to go deep and get to the heart of the matter using her magic bag of tricks. Then, on the flip side, she is the savviest business woman I’ve ever met.
How to attend: Registration for The Conquer Club is open in the fall each year. As an affiliate, I offer a mega bonus every year for anyone who enrolls through me.
P.S. Natalie launched her Entrepreneur Archetype quiz that helps you to figure out your best way of working and how to overcome your areas of weakness. I’m a Messenger! Want to know your archetype? Take the quiz here.
This is THE MAP showing you exactly what steps you need to take to go from feast + famine to booking consistent clients. It’s easier than you think. Print it out, put it on your desk, and use it to assess your current services.
Take this short quiz so that I can personally recommend the exact next steps that you should take strategy-wise to increase your income, book more clients, and create more freedom from your business.
