Today on the show I am wrapping up 2019 in a big way by talking about the lessons I learned 14x-ing my business. Make sure to tune in because I have a few surprises up my sleeve!
It’s hard to believe that today is the last day of 2019. Tomorrow we will be heading into a new year and a new decade! I was thinking about my life over the last 10 years and it’s been a crazy journey. I went to law school, worked in direct sales, had a baby, started a mom blog and finally ended up finding my true passion.
Over the past 10 years, I have had many failures and many wins. “Failing” at something allows you to learn from your mistakes. These so-called “failures” have made me into the person I am today. Remember to stop and reflect on your past and celebrate your wins, even the ones that may seem small!
- Relationships over revenue: focus on building relationships and expect nothing in return.
- Things can happen fast. I started doing Facebook ads for clients less than a year ago.
- Show up, add value and participate in courses and FB groups.
- Ask yourself how you can show up and help others in a genuine way
- Don’t get caught up on revenue: concentrate on your profit
- Keeping your expenses low allows you to have a higher profit, which allows you to make a bigger impact at home and in your community
- The importance of your overall happiness in your business and life
- Make sure that what you say yes to, aligns with what lights you up
- Do not pick a service just because you think it is scalable.
- Realize there are things that are mandatory in your business: you won’t love everything you have to do all the time.
Summary: The 3 Big Lessons I Learned in 2019:
- Relationships Over Revenue
- Profit Over Revenue
- Your Happiness Should Help Dictate Your Decisions
2019 was a whirlwind year for Brandi and Company. I niched down and started offering Facebook ad services, I started a podcast, and I started a membership for service providers that lights me up every single day. In 2020 I am hosting my first live event and running a mastermind for a group of amazing entrepreneurs.
Remember that so much can happen in 12 months. I started my business in 2018 and made between $25,000-$30,000. In 2019, we did over $350,000. I don’t say this to boast or brag, but I say it to show you that a lot can happen in a short amount of time if you get intentional about where you want your business to go. You must focus on the things that matter the most and stop making excuses that it won’t work for you.
I hope you all move into 2020 with a fresh view of your business and yourself and leave all the negative baggage behind you. You are meant to do great things and to do something bigger. Whatever goals and desires you have, you can make it happen!
As you know, learning how to do Facebook ads and offering this as a service changed my life. In honor of that, I am opening the doors to my brand new course, Conversions for Clients. The doors open January 8th and will only be open for a short period of time so I encourage you to jump on the waitlist at www.servescalesoar.com/cfcwaitlist.
Make sure to jump on the waitlist and you will be the first to be notified when the course opens up. This course will take you from not knowing anything or very little about Facebook ads to being a rockstar Facebook ads manager that leaves your clients raving about your conversions.
