Ep 29: Steps for Start Up Success

The number 1 thing new clients tell me is that they "don't know how to run a business" and are often stuck swirling with the idea of the HOW to grow a business, unclear of what to do next and where to put their energy and effort.

This results in....

A lack of clarity


Being swayed here and there based on free advice they see on social media

No audience growth

No income or income that is inconsistent

No engagement on social media

No email list

Flaky consistency

In this episode, I go into the 8 Clarity Pillars that I recommend to help move your business from the start-up phase (which is likely MUCH longer than you expect - I also speak to this) to the growth phase.

I preface this episode with an unpopular opinion that challenges the anti-step-by-step AKA anti-blueprint brigade. As an experienced educator, this one has been brewing for a while! As always, I'm challenging hard and fast rules to do this or that and instead sitting in the messy middle where there are shades of grey. There are times when step-by-step guidance and blueprints work very well and can help accelerate implementation and there are times when businesses can afford to throw away the script and go for it!... Here's a clue.... early in your business, I don't really recommend it!

This episode gives you some great guidance as to how you can get through the start-up phase by laying solid foundations using my 8 Clarity Pillars.
