Having a successful business is a lot about knowing who you are – and then building your business structures around that truth. With that said, I get to be selective about the people I work with. Here are my honest answers to your most asked questions about Uplevel Your Business Coaching Intensive and the Business Shred…
What if I have only an idea for a business but no business yet?
Having an idea is a great start. One of the most common things my seasoned business-owner clients tell me is: “Oh, I wish I had you ten years ago when I started this thing.”
That’s because when you set it up correctly from the beginning – you make more money – faster – with less struggle.
In other words: if you don’t have this information, training, and guidance to help you, where will you turn? Are you simply going to rely on guess work and Google searches? UYB Coaching Intensive can shave years off of your learning curve. Get this now… That way, you don’t come to me in 10 years and say, “I wish I had you 10 years ago!”
Meet Stacey. She took Uplevel Your Business (and came to the retreat) – and didn’t even have so much as an idea for a business! But she did the work, got the clarity – and look what happened…
What if I still have a job while I’m building my business?
This is how we all started our businesses. It’s honorable and responsible to take care of your needs until your business does that for you. With that said, plan on scheduling the time to do this work. Mark it in your calendar as “Business Development” time. Make it sacred, close your doors, and implement. In the UYB Coaching Intensive, you’ll definitely be among other people in your same situation – and together you’ll discover that leaving your job becomes merely a matter of picking a date once your business starts generating income!
What if I live overseas? Is this a live training? Will I miss it?
UYB Coaching Intensive is not a live training. You can access the materials online anytime. You get to go at your own pace, from the comfort of your own home.
The only exception is the Strategy Pod Sessions with Christine. These calls are pre-set and are scheduled to accommodate many time zones. You’ll have access to the schedule in your members vault area.
My students and clients live all over the world. Uplevel Academy clients have flown in to Asheville to work with me from as far away as Guam, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Germany, England, Switzerland, Sweden, France, Hawaii – and many many more.)
How much time should I expect to put in each week?
The modules themselves will take you about 2 hours each week to do. Our students report that the average time they put in was about 4-6 hours per week. This gives you time to do the trainings and to use the tools and templates.
When does the UYB Coaching Intensive start? I travel a lot.
We begin the course next Monday. And as for traveling – no worries at all. We record all of our live calls so you can listen any time. This is also why you get Lifetime Access to the UYB Coaching Intensive program. You get to take your time and catch up at your own pace.
Do I get access to the entire program all at once?
No. And there’s a really great reason for that. Too many business owners think they know it all, have heard it all, and their motto is “show me the money!” So they jump ahead to the module on selling or the module on making money on your website.
But I’ve designed the UYB Coaching Intensive to create real-world life-long success. That means each module builds on the other. The work you do in Module 3 will totally inform how you learn to sell in your Bonuses section. This gets results. I repeat: UYB Coaching Intensive is not about tactics or magic pills. If you’re looking for a quick-fix, please don’t work with me.
How fast will I make money?
How fast you make money depends on you. I won’t make false promises or claims about overnight income magically appearing. (Not my style.)
But I do know that when my students implement what they learn, they see increases in income sometimes within weeks, sometimes within months, sometimes in a year. Again it’s about you and your commitment to your business… Are you willing to participate in the trainings? Will you take these tools and USE them? Will you be on the calls with me and ask questions?
My husband/wife thinks this is all BS… How do I get them on board?
I’m not a relationship therapist, but here’s the deal…
If your partner is not “on board,” then probably what’s needed is deep communication…not some quick tips on how to convince them!
If you’re like so many of my students and clients (and me too!), then you’ve probably spent good chunks of your time chasing idea after idea after idea. Most likely, your partner just stopped trying to keep up with you!
So – I recommend that you let go of trying to convince or cajole your spouse. Instead, just be real. Be open. Have a deep conversation about your business, this program, and why you want to do it. Show your spouse the modules, share the success stories on this page. Explain why this will help you and share exactly (spouses like numbers!) how you will commit to the program. And lastly, here’s a testimonial I received (he sent it out of the blue, unsolicited) from the husband of one of my clients…
You seem to mostly work with women. Can men join?
You bet! Men are more than welcome to join!
And can I just say one more thing about that?
One reason so many women join is strictly about the numbers. The 2015 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report revealed that women’s start up businesses are on the rise, with a daily rate of 887 new women-owned businesses per day! (Up 74% from 20 years ago!)
So, naturally, women are hungry for this kind of training because they can’t deal with the antiquated buttoned-up executive-speak masterminds that have dominated the business world up til now.
Does this work for businesses that sell products? Does it work for MLM businesses?
If your business serves human beings, UYB Coaching Intensive will work. It’s designed to help you do all the things that a business owner MUST learn how to do, including identifying and communicating your value, your message, and your offer. And identifying, finding and selling to your ideal client. It will help you understand how to leverage the digital tools of the modern day entrepreneur.
What if I’m an artist? What if I’m an introvert? What if I’m emotionally sensitive? What if I don’t eat wheat, work from a yurt or haven’t lost the baby fat yet? What if I’m a unicorn?
All the “what if” questions are often our ego’s way of trying to stop us from truly succeeding. It tosses these things out because the ego is scared you’re going to actually, you know, change – and it knows that these stories always work, right? They always stop you in your tracks. It’s the same old refrain: “I’m different. This won’t work for someone quite as different as me!”
In Uplevel Academy we call this “Unique Snowflake Syndrome.” It’s all the usual stories you’ve told yourself to remind you that you are too broken, damaged, or weird to be helped. So, is it true? Are you????
Your choice right now is to continue letting this get in the way or not. Instead of allowing the same old stories to stop you, you can have the training and support you need to build your business, make lots of money, serve people at a much higher level and thrive. (And aren’t you just tired of those same old stories?)
