I get asked all of the time: Amy, where do I start? And the answer is to start with building your business in Phase One, and progress to Phase Two. This is how to build a business that will endure in the long term, and really fulfill the lifestyle you are looking for.
I know this because I can look back and see what worked for my own business, and what I would have changed if I had to do it all again.
With Phase One, you focus on how to make money in the here and now.
In this phase, you are asking these kinds of questions: What skills and knowledge do you have right now to ensure you can make money quickly? Who’s your avatar? Do you have a solid plan in place to grow your list? What’s your strategy for your blog or posting to social media?
In this phase you are sharpening your skills and getting into the trenches with your ideal customer avatar so that you can understand their needs, wants and genuine pain points. This intel is incredibly valuable as you begin to hone in on your own messaging for your business.
I’ll walk you through several business models that are perfect for this level.
Then with Phase Two, we move into creating a business and life you love.
For this, you will ask yourself: What’s my ultimate business model?
There needs to be an alignment between what you want to do and what your avatar wants from you: That’s the sweet spot.
In many situations, including my own, a business model that offers A LOT of flexibility, consistent revenue and an abundance of opportunity to impact your audience is one that is built on you creating online training programs.
