I created six-figures in six months, going from the zero list zero audience, zero connections, literally zero everything. In this episode, I’m going to dive into the details of the exact steps I took initially to start my online business, even though I had no Facebook profile before April 2016. I had no plan or intention to actually achieve this milestone. In fact, I was perfectly happy in my corporate career until the point where I could no longer physically do the job and had a breakdown. Here’s how I did it.

Biggest Takeaways:

  • If you are struggling with clarity, you may be overlooking something that’s right there in front of you.
  • Start by creating content talking about the specific pain points around the problem that you solve for your audience.
  • If you spend time, you may find more results, but that’s not always the case and it’s really about creating those connections. Now from there, so you’re engaging these conversations, you’re commenting, you’re helping, you’re answering questions that are in your wheelhouse.
  • My calendar blew up I was giving so much value, not only through the posts that I had already built up credibility and expertise in the other communities, but in asking people what they wanted and asking people how I could help serve them. And then delivering upon that with the trainings that I was creating inside my own Facebook community. As a result, people felt heard and validated, understood. And more importantly, they felt connected to me.
  • It only took me 20 and a half years to get to six-figures because everything that I learned through my career enabled me to take those shortcuts when I finally put it into practice in my business.
