Thursday May 28, 2020 – 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

What Entrepreneurs Need to Know to Not Pay it Back

Great, you got the Paycheck Protection Program loan.

It can be forgiven, but it’s NOT automatic.

Let me repeat:

IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS RIGHT YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY THIS MONEY BACK TO THE GOVERNMENT PARTIALLY OR IN FULL.

And I don’t mean to scare you.

And it very likely will be possible for you to get it forgiven.

That was the intent.

Here are the main steps you need to go through for forgiveness:

  1. Make A Plan To Maximize The Amount You Will Be Able To Forgive

  2. Determine The Eligible Costs Incurred & Paid During Next 8 Weeks

  3. Calculate The Employee Floor For Forgiveness

  4. Determine Any Percentage Decrease In FTEs During 8 Weeks

  5. Calculate Reduction In Payroll > 25% of Prior Quarter

  6. Consider Changes For Employees “Restored By June 30th”.

  7. Prepare The Final Package For Submission To The Bank For Forgiveness

  8. Answer All Questions For Lenders & The SBA

If you are ready to take the next step and make sure you loan is fully forgiven let’s talk.

The One Thing You Must Do to Position Your Business For Success

Thursday April 9, 2020 – 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

We live in interesting times.
Times of great crisis are also times of great opportunity.
To take advantage of that opportunity you may have to pivot

But one thing is for sure

More and more people will want to take their businesses online.

That means the experienced service provider, coach, consultant or expert will be even more in demand in his/her particular field of expertise.

Yes… they will still think their lack of sales is due to a lack of traffic…

Yes… they will still be obsessed with getting more traffic. 

They want to talk about their ads…

They want to talk about targeting…

They want to dive into settings…

And they will still live in hope that once they have discovered some kind of ninja secret, sales will magically appear!

But the truth is … there is no ninja secret.
Their Ads are not the problem.
They don’t need more traffic.

The real issue is more fundamental.

Fact is… Traffic is not the issue here. The real issue ie that they need high quality leads who are ready willing and able to become buyers.

Fact is… There is one simple strategy which has been around since the dawn of time that attracts, engages, motivates and inspires people to achieve superhuman results (and become clients).

Fact is… There are two things that set homo sapiens apart from other animals.

 The first is that we have the power to imagine things that don’t exist.

The second is that we can all tell powerful stories.

No other animal can do these two things.

The first allows us to dream big dreams like landing a man on the moon or building a reusable rocket. And the second allows us to inspire people to believe that we can make those dreams a reality and that they should believe them too.  

We may live in a digital world (more so than ever now).

That doesn’t change a thing

We are hard wired to listen to stories… To be inspired by them

 We tell stories every day. To our friends. To our family. To ourselves.

 They help us connect. Build relationships. Build communities. Build Tribes…  And attract high quality clients, we want to do business with

Story matters.

 Apple would not be the behemoth it has become, if Steve Jobs was not a great storyteller.

Tesla would not be the most valuable car company in the world, if Elon Musk was not a great storyteller

You don’t have to be a Hemingway or a JK Rowling to write great stories. 

You can write them in 30 minutes a day or less when you know how…

Here’s what a client of mine, Ryan Wegman has to say…

I used to get zero engagement on my posts, now I get 20, 30, 50 or more likes, shares, and comments on each post. They keep coming in day after day! 

 One post filled my appointment calendar for the entire week. 

I was in total amazement at how quickly the needle moved forward once I started to apply these techniques. Now I use and teach these frameworks to my clients.

I was able to land 3 JV partners for an upcoming launch, secure a private affiliate deal for a high ticket offer, and leverage the minds of multiple 7, and 8 figure per year business owners to position myself for success. 

All due to the one simple change in my day to day business

 In this 35 minute presentation we’re going to take a deep dive into  how to tell better stories

  • How to use them to attract the clients you want to work with
  • How to use them to power the growth in your business while maximising margins
  • Why organic as well as paid traffic generation is key to your ongoing business success
  • And what systems you need to put in place to do all this so you can delegate the process

Rosemary O’Neill – 10 Keys To Grow Your Business with an Engaged Online Community

business growth with online community engagement

Thursday March 26, 2020 – 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

In this crazy new situation we all find ourselves in, NOW is when you need to find your voice online, and bring your people together, virtually.

An engaged community isn’t a luxury anymore – it’s a necessity. This webinar will offer 10 key tactics you can use immediately to start growing your online community, whether you’re a solo entrepreneur or part of a larger organization.

Your community is already out there, talking about subjects that are relevant to your business. That conversation shouldn’t be taking place in a vacuum. You should be a vibrant part of that discussion, adding value and learning from your customers/community members on an ongoing basis.

It’s time to harness the power of that engaged community by hosting a space for them to come together and share resources, support each other, and gain a sense of belonging with your brand.

This is an opportunity to show leadership around social distancing and self-isolation – the two important social strategies that will help us significantly slow the spread of COVID-19.
In this webinar, you’ll learn 10 key strategies, including:
  • The biggest mistake most people make when setting up a community (and how to avoid it).
  • How real life is an important component of online community, especially in the beginning.
  • How to create and foster a two-way connection between your social accounts and your owned community (they’re not mutually exclusive, in fact Social Buzz Club will help!).
If you do it correctly, your community members will love you for making a place that delivers value to them every day.
Everybody likes to talk about “community,” but when you complete this webinar, you’ll have a deep understanding of what it really is, how to be a great community leader, and how to apply that knowledge to support your business goals.
