Am I Ready For High-Level Coaching? - What Your First (Or Next) 9 Months As A Profitable Entrepreneur Look Like


Welcome back to the Paid For Your Presence™ Podcast!

I’m here at the Margaritaville Resort in Florida.

I hear this all day long in my coaching practice… Questions like…“But what if I'm new to business?  Am I ready for this?  Am I ready for high-level coaching?”

I believe that if you are a new entrepreneur, it is VITAL that you get the support, expert guidance, and accountability so that your business can avoid all the mistakes, wasted time, and that nasty "feast-or-famine" cash flow cycles that most new entrepreneurs will experience.

The following outline of the first three 90-day sprints will look different for everyone, but I wanted to map out an example for you.

This coincides with the three phases we talked about last week in the podcast - How To Build A Business That Generates $18K-$20K+ Per Month Consistently.

So if you are new, here is what your first nine months could look like…

The first phase, I like to call “Emerge”.

This is where you decide, define, and start setting up all your systems and structures while you start forming and refining your message and position in the marketplace.

Emerge:  Your 1st 90-Day Sprint

Your first 90 days will be all about emerging into the marketplace and making decisions quickly, changing your mind slowly.

You’ll start taking action instead of thinking about it, over researching, and wondering what it would be like to have your own profitable business.

You will DECIDE that you will be a successful entrepreneur and that you’ll never settle!

What offer do you have that sells itself?

What marketing strategy takes little effort for you to attract and convert.

Sprint 1:  Emerge, is about setting up just enough systems and structures so that you can start earning $3K to $5K in your business ASAP!

It is about seeing what works and not getting to bogged down with the micro details and chasing bright shiny objects.

Testing is key during your first 90 days, not sitting around theorizing about it.

In this track, together we’ll set up your initial offer or offers, your pricing, your core messaging, your marketing copy, your marketing plan/funnels, basic website and/or landing page(s), your brand, your free resource/opt-in offer, your daily success practices, social media platforms and profiles (if any), your payment system, your bulk email system, CRM (or Customer Relationship Management System), your business structure (DBA, LLC, or Corporation), your business banking, and more!

Everything you need to get up and running, while not getting too attached to each piece.

Things WILL change after you test them out, so let’s get to the testing and making money stage asap. then go back and refine everything later.

Progress and income, not perfection.

Expand:  Your 2nd 90-Day Sprint

Phase 2 - Expand is where you double down on everything that is working thus far.

You ditch what isn’t working and massively grow your audience and income.

Your 2nd 90-Day sprint is about growth and expansion.

Now that you have the basics set up and you are bringing in an income from your business, it is time to expand on what is already working for you and attract an even bigger audience.

This is where you have an offer that sells itself and you are no longer feel like you are chasing people – ideal clients are coming to YOU!

Now, you need a way to sell people directly into your offer without you having to hustle and work so hard and the time.

The Expand Sprint is also where you can start forming a team and outsourcing some of the work (if you desire to manage a team).

I know most business coaches will cringe, but for a lot of people, I don’t recommend having a large team.

Especially, in the beginning.

And that is a whole other episode.

The Expand Sprint is about increasing your audience/list numbers and receiving a steady stream of referrals and leads.

Influence:  Your 3rd 90-Day Sprint

Then we have Phase 3 is the Influence Phase where you position yourself more as a thought leader and influencer in your space, not just another internet marketer running all over social media.

This is where you leverage into high-ticket offers.

Your third 90-Day sprint, the Influence Phase, is about scaling and leveraging.

You have the basic systems and structures set up.

You have an offer that sells itself.

You know how to enroll people into your offer.

You have a steady stream of referrals and leads.

Now what?

This may surprise you but we’ll probably take a step back, evaluate EVERYTHING you are spending time and money on and streamline or double down on what is working even more.

It is all about refining at this stage.

You are now becoming more of an influencer than just an entrepreneur.

Maybe it is time you leverage into higher ticket offers, products, events, licensing, franchising, etc.

So yes, these phases will look different for everyone but this is a great outline that I hope helps you to see the different levels and what you should be focused on at each level.

I also hope that you realize what you should not be focusing on at each level.

Focusing on things too far ahead of you will leave you overwhelmed and broke.

So what phase are you in?  

I’d love to discuss with you in the comments, direct messages, on Voxer, or on a private strategy session.
