Relationships in Life by Design
The importance of relationships in achieving success cannot be overstated. We have business in our lives all of the time, and we need to be surrounded by the right people; we need an inner circle, collaboration partners, and the same in our personal lives. We need an internal group that is always there for us.
Samantha ran a dancing studio for 20 years while running retail establishments and raising three children. Running three different brick-and-mortar enterprises, two of which would operate during the day and one would work at night. She realized she had reached a point where she appeared to have lost everything.
The Keep Principle
The keep notion is broken into four distinct portions, which become apparent when mentally dumping everything onto paper. Knowledge comes first, then skill, experience, and lastly, excitement. These may not appear to be business-related, but they are since they contain multiple stories, metaphors, and lessons.
Samantha proposes selecting the optimal period for your company's life cycle, similar to childbirth. While many individuals like to work from the bottom up, she has discovered that this takes significantly longer since you require more structured business training when you have lesser sales.
Critical Factors for an Effective Online Course
[18:09] For an online course to be highly effective, three elements must be present: Your content or the course component; Your coaching section, which is your Q and A; A community, which may be Facebook groups or workshops.
Samantha prefers a monthly recurring income model in which customers come in, and she coaches them through each iteration of the course in real-time. That is the brand-new content that will be included in the course.
Samantha loves recording live modules for several reasons: Recording on your own and uploading a video does not provide real-time feedback. When people ask questions during the conversation, the information is included in the recordings, which helps the viewer grasp a subject better when they hear it from someone else.
Indications for Change
Feeling stale, depleted, as if your business is a slog, or if you're beginning to dislike your clientele, are indicators that something has to change and change quickly. That means digging inward and determining what you're missing from the business to fill your cup and have an overflow so you can return to giving and serving your clients.
Nuggets of Wisdom
When we are out of equilibrium, our bodies communicate. Pay attention to your body's signals since this will help you get into that "what's going on here?" feeling.
