Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business
Rachel Smiling

Have you ever noticed that some people seem like overnight successes? It feels like they just started their business yesterday and now they've hit a big milestone or a big goal, while others seem to struggle through it for years without much to show for it.

Why is that? Why is it that most people start a business and fail in the first 18 months?

On today's Business With Impact podcast, I'm going to share with you the most important decision I made in my business that changed everything.

I am not an overnight success, but some may think I am. I want to share some behind the scenes of what happened and three ways to help you decide what your business needs.

Because if you've got a big heart to serve others and you're ready to step into that purpose, but you're having trouble getting in front of those people…That can change starting now.

2:37

>> At 2:37, I start off with a little behind-the-scenes story of something that happened to me in my business. So, for anyone who thinks I was an “overnight success,” this is for you. It was definitely not my shining moment, but I hope it helps encourage you!

7:48

>> At 7:48, we get into the meat of this episode which is this: I waited far too long in my business to invest in a course, program, or coach to get the help that I needed. We can’t be afraid to ask for help or we’ll never get the results we need!

9:25

>> At 9:25, we spend the rest of the episode discussing this idea of getting help. Whether that’s a coach or something else, we go over three important questions to ask yourself before deciding which is best for you.

Three Questions To Ask Before Investing In Your Business

rachel mcmichael:

Three Questions To Ask Before Investing In Your Business
Rachel Smiling

One of the questions I get asked all of the time is, “how do I decide what to invest in and when to invest in my business?”

And I get it, because you only have to open up Facebook to get presented with offer after offer after offer. You know what I'm talking about, right? Those $37 offers, $27 offers, and $15 promises to change your business forever. Not to mention the high level masterminds group coaching programs and summits…

It can feel like a lot. Am I right?

And so if you've been asking this question (and it's a good question to ask for your business), this episode is for you!

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I'm going to share the three questions I always ask before making any business investment decisions!

3:28

>> At 3:28, I start off with a story about my vacuum and how it relates to all of our businesses. It might sound like a bizarre analogy, but trust me! It totally makes sense when you listen in.

10:14

>> At 10:14, we dive into question number one: Do I actually need this? Here we break down what’s going on in your business and how to really think through whether or not you truly need another “quick fix” for your business.

15:40

>> At 15:40, after discussing question #2, we jump right into question #3 here: Will it give me a return on my investment? Meaning, will it help me sell more programs or services, or will it help me not t

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business

How NOT to build an audience!

rachel mcmichael:

How NOT to build an audience!
Rachel Smiling

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, we're talking all about how to build an audience…

And more importantly… how NOT to build an audience. I'm sharing the WORST strategy I heard recently, and what I'm recommend instead.

Now it may not be the “popular” opinion — but it is the profitable one!

If you're not in our Accelerate Your Success Community, come find us at rachelmcmichael.com/accelerate

1:05

At 1:05, I jump right in and tell you one strategy you should NOT be doing when it comes to building your audience (spoiler: you should not be buying your audience!).

6:04

At 6:04, we talk all about comparison. If all we’re doing is comparing our audience to someone else’s audience (and totally neglecting who is already around us), that’s a sure-fire way to be sure your audience never grows.

9:32

At 9:32, we focus on your messaging. Getting your messaging wrong is a guaranteed way to make sure your audience never grows. You need to figure out your messaging and who you’re purposed to serve!

Why We Try to Fail FAST! with James Wedmore
James Wedmore

Last week in our Accelerate Your Success Facebook group, my friend and coach, James Wedmore, came and shared his thoughts on sales, niching down, on marketing, and on success. And in today's Business With Impact podcast episode, I wanted to share a clip from that conversation that we had.

If you missed the conversation or you're not over in our Accelerate Your Success Facebook group yet, make sure to join us at rachelmcmichael.com/accelerate.

Today's episode is a short one, but I know you're going to get a lot of value from it!

1:12

>> At 1:12, James starts out with a bit of encouragement for all of us who continue to show up and take some sort of action, even when it’s hard.

2:14

>> At 2:14, we talk about a new way to look at failure and why so many well-intentioned entrepreneurs miss the mark in their business when they get here.

4:26

>> At 4:26, James ends with an incredible call to action: to go ahead and fail, but to fail FAST + why we should have this sort of thinking in our business.

Why It’s Important to Ask for Help in Your Business

Defining Success

rachel mcmichael:

Defining Success
Rachel Smiling

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I want to talk about this thing that we call success.

Why is it that some people seem to accomplish so much in their day? That it looks like they're checking every box off of their well-designed to do list? While others who have the same big plans, the same grand vision, and strong work ethic but at the end of the day, they are left feeling like they really didn't get much done.

If you could fully tap into your vision, and your mission, and your potential, what would that look like for you? What would that change for your business, for your family? How would life change if you were able to be more productive, if you were able to hit your goals consistently?

We’re going to talk about all of that and more today…so let’s dive in!

2:47

>> At 2:47, after debunking one of the biggest lies of the online business world, I jump right into defining success. What does that look like for me and my business and how have I failed at it in the past?

7:10

>> At 7:10, we start to really think through what success looks like for you. What do you want your life to look like 3-5 years from now?

8:31

>> At 8:31, I take you through a thinking exercise to help you define what a successful life and business looks like for you. I know it may seem silly to think through these things, but I encourage you to sit down with a pen and paper to work through this activity. If you want to know where you're going, you've got to decide on the destination first.

The Three Ingredients For Marketing + Messaging Success

The Three Ingredients For Marketing + Messaging Success

rachel mcmichael:

The Three Ingredients For Marketing + Messaging Success
Rachel Smiling
Why is it that some coaches and course creators can sell out their offers in a matter of minutes, while others struggle for months or even years to get their first paying customer? What is it that they've figured out that others haven't?

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I’m going to share the three things that every online business that’s crushing it has in place.

And if you’re not getting the leads or sales that you want – then you’re probably missing one of these things. Let’s dive in!

2:18

>> At 2:18, before diving into the details of the first ingredient (which is nailing down your offer!), we imagine together….what if you could read your customer's mind and know exactly what they want and be able to describe it in a way that they want it and they're ready to buy it before they even know how much it costs! How much easier would it be to build an audience of qualified leads and serve the customers you know you’re purposed to serve?

7:30

>> At 7:30, we begin talking about the next few ingredients, beginning with your messaging. How dialed in is your messaging? How well are you marketing your product? If you’re lacking in any one of these areas, you’re likely not going to see any results.

15:39

>> At 15:39, we discuss what you should do now that you know all of these ingredients. What’s your next step? We get real practical here and I give some tangible steps to take so you can start changing your messaging, offer, or your niche to start seeing results.
