We’re picking 10 new winners every week!

Ok without further ado, today I’m excited to introduce you to

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl.

I started reading this book because I heard a friend mention how impactful it had been for their life and their business.

And not-so-coincidentally, after reading the book I was telling my husband what a profound impact it had on my own life and he pulled out his copy that he’d read almost a decade ago.

Now this book isn’t your typical business book. 

In fact, it’s not about business at all. 

Man’s Search for Meaning is a 1946 autobiography of sorts by the late Victor Frankl, an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, philosopher, and Holocaust survivor. 

In it, he details his experiences as a prisoner in Auschwitz in World War 2 and despite enduring some of the worst suffering I’ve ever read about, he explains how he was able to survive it all.

Now I love biographies. I love stories about overcoming. And I’m really into science and psychology and mindset and living from our purpose. I found this book fascinating and was on the edge of my seat with each new chapter — but even if you hate that type of book, I’m going to tell you to power through this one because what you will walk away with is that good!

My takeaways from this book went beyond business – and yet, they had a profound impact on the lens in which I see life and business.

I’m going to tell you to power through this one because what you will walk away with is that good!

Here’s my top 3 takeaways from Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

#1

This book is uncomfortable to read. For so many reasons. It’s detailed. And graphic. And dives into the utter depravity of man. And yet at the same time, it’s full of hope. One of the most profound lessons I took away is something that we say all the time – but often feels cliche — and that’s that we are not the victims of our circumstances. Even in the worst of circumstances, we have the free will to choose how we respond. This is a theme throughout the book as despite the horrific circumstances that Frankl and the fellow prisoners faced, he noticed that they all chose to act differently. Some were caring and supportive, some were just downright awful and mean, some were selfish, some gave up, some endured. Even though they were all living in the same conditions – truly suffering – each man had a choice. You and I will likely never fully comprehend the inexplicable suffering that these men and women experienced – and if they can find purpose and meaning through it all – well, that right there is a lesson in and of itself, right?

#2

In this book, Frankl introduces the concept of logotherapy – basically how to find meaning in life. The simplest way to explain it is that he believes that everyone is created for a purpose and on purpose, and that each individual’s purpose is unique and specific. And when we go through trials and tribulations – even of the worst kind – those who can find meaning – or a lesson – will be able to deal with any adversity. Now again, my adversities pale in comparison to what Frankl faced. And yet, how often do I allow them to define me?

#3

When Frankl went to publish the book, he almost didn’t put his name on it. He planned to publish it anonymously and his friends encouraged him to put his name on it. He didn’t write it to get famous – in fact, he wrote it in a matter of days. But he knew that this message – these findings – this story – must be told. And I think this is a huge lesson – because even though he did end up famous for his work, he would have done it anyway. And the same is true for you and your business. The WHY and PURPOSE behind it are what will drive everything forward. Those looking for fame rarely find it (for more than a few minutes, anyway)… but those looking to serve from a place of purpose – well, they’re happy with or without the fame.

I wish we had more time to talk about all of the profound lessons from this book!

We’re picking 10 new winners every week! And I’m sure some of you unicorns will end up winning time and time again.

Ok without further ado, today I’m excited to introduce you to

The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss.

For years my friends have told me to read Tim’s book… I’ve had so many people tell me that the way I teach my Business with Impact Society™ members productivity and how I’ve worked so diligently to master the art of working only 4 hours a day 4 days a week is something that needs its own book.

My only hesitation was that this book was that Audible told me it was going to take 13 hours to listen to it at regular speed. “Ummm…. Tim… that’s more than three WEEKS of work according to your four hours a week title!”

And yet, as I’m constantly telling my clients “the fact that you think you don’t have time to put in automations is the EXACT reason you MUST get them in place!” – It’s a total catch-22, am I right?!

Now I always want to give you the whole story when it comes to a book – and this one is excellent. While many of the concepts weren’t “new” to me, hearing Tim share how and when he’d implemented them was fantastic… and it gave me even more ideas as I continue to work to whittle down my already limited hours each week.

But I do want to warn you that you will want to apply your own filter to this book. When he wrote this, Tim was a single man who was looking for a way to travel the world without being tied down to one location. And he did this with a products-based approach.

I have no desire to be location independent – my husband and I feel very called to live where we are. We are here on purpose and for a purpose. So if you’re like me and location independence isn’t what you’re striving for, this book is still for you.

I also have no desire to have a products business. I help online business owners, course creators, coaches, and freelancers grow and scale their business using the power of automation – so they can start and scale their businesses without sacrificing their family, free time, or sanity.

And while I’ve helped many products-based do the same – it’s not my calling. So if you’re like me and a products business isn’t what you’re growing, this book is still for you.

I applied WAY more than three things that I learned while listening to this audiobook – and if I can take away that many things as a parent who has different ambitions than Tim, then I’m confident you can too.

… it gave me even more ideas as I continue to work to whittle down my already limited hours each week.

These are my top 3 takeaways from The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss

#1

#1 – The Pareto Principle

otherwise known as the 80/20 rule. Now we’ve talked about this before – in fact the entire premise behind my Business with Impact Society™ is the fact that 80% of the results come from 20% of the activities – so in The Business with Impact Society™ we focus on the 20% so that we can grow and scale more quickly while living a priority based life.

But what I love about the way that Tim approaches it. He says “Doing something unimportant well doesn’t make it important.”

When I heard him say that it immediately got me thinking about my own life and business — are there areas that I’m naturally good at but that aren’t actually important to the business? Are there areas I’m spending time on that aren’t really affecting the bottom line? Are there things we’re investing in that we aren’t really seeing a Return on Investment from?

And that combined with a few other things was the catalyst for my most recent social media fast, which I talk about more in Episode 146. And (spoiler alert) doing so didn’t hurt my business at all!

#2

#2 – The tools, templates, scripts, and systems.

The 4-Hour Work Week is broken down into four themes:

Definition
Elimination
Automation
Liberation

And in each theme, Tim doesn’t hold back – he shares all of the books he read, the systems he used, the emails he sent, the conversations he had, and more.

Now in the definition phase, we start by defining what success looks like on our terms – not what we’ve been taught or what others are doing – but what we want. Tim wants to travel the world and work only four hours a week. I want to fulfill two purposes at once – spending more time with my family while serving more people through the Business with Impact Society™.

In the elimination phase, we take things off of our plate that aren’t in the 20%. Here Tim shares ideas like his “media fast” which I now have a low-diet of, and it has changed so many things for me! He talks about stopping a book that you just don’t like and never picking it up again. And he talks about how to say no – tactfully and gracefully.

In the automation phase, he shares all kinds of tools and systems he uses – this section was so valuable as we started using several in our business too! He shares scripts + templates and so many high-value pieces that we found so useful in this phase.

In the liberation phase, he talks about how everyone from employees to entrepreneurs can embrace a freedom lifestyle – and again gave so many ideas, worked through difficult conversations, and shared the strategies and techniques that have worked for him and his students.

#3

#3 – Validating Your Business Idea BEFORE You Create It

in the Business with Impact Society™ we teach a concept that we call “Getting Paid to Create Your Offer” – what I mean by that is that when I have an idea for a course or program, I validate it by asking people “if I created this, would you want it?”.

If I get enough of a response, then I create the Sales Page using my Sales Page that Sells™ framework and I “launch” the offer as a “Beta” – meaning the first round or “paid test group.”

The test group knows that we are creating this together and they get the benefit of group calls that future customers may not have access to. They also get a discounted rate. And I get paid to create the program + the accountability to get it finished WITH them.

This concept is true whether you’re creating a digital product or a physical one — validate the idea through pre-sales.

As you can see when it comes to how he’s created a life he loves to live, Tim covers #allthingssales in this book.

We’re picking 10 new winners every week! And I’m sure some of you unicorns will end up winning time and time again.

Ok without further ado, today I’m excited to introduce you to

RocketFuel by Gino Wickman and Mark Winters

This book and his prequel book, Traction, are both in my Top Books for Entrepreneurs. In Traction, we learn how to create a business plan… from setting goals and intentions to filling our org chart to leading a team, Traction is a fantastic tool for the online business owner who is ready to step away as the overwhelmed hobbyist and into the Impactful CEO.

And in the follow-up book, RocketFuel Wickman and Winters dive into the two leadership styles every small business needs: the Visionary who sees the future and the Integrator who makes it happen.

This book has helped me to make some lasting changes in the way we run our team internally, and these changes contributed to a quantum leap in service, sales, and morale in our team.

Now as you know, whenever I read something, I try and find at least ONE thing I can implement now in my business or life (and ideally THREE great things).

This book has helped me to make some lasting changes in the way we run our team internally, and these changes contributed to a quantum leap in service, sales, and morale in our team.

Here’s my top 3 takeaways from RocketFuel by Gino Wickman and Mark Winters.

#1

#1 – Are you a visionary or an integrator?

In the first part of this book, Gino + Mark dive into the difference between the Visionary and the Integrator. They give a quick test so you can see which you fall into, and they talk through why these two roles matter and help you learn how to best interact with the person in the opposite role from you.

The Visionary is the “ideas person” – they are constantly coming up with new thoughts and new ideas for the business (some great, some not-so-great). They see the big picture and are great at solving problems. But this person also struggles with reigning in their ideas. Because they aren’t a detailed person, they can move from one idea to the next without fully implementing… and they can sometimes be disorganized in process.

The integrator on the other hand is great at management and holding others accountable. They are consistent, able to clarify the vision, and execute. They roll up their sleeves and know how to make things happen. The Integrator is good at poking holes in ideas, and helps the visionary see what’s required to execute an idea.

As the visionary of the business with a strong affinity for Integration, this was so good for me to see how I can continue to work with those on my team who are helping to oversee the day to day operations.

#2

#2 – Every organization needs an organizational chart.

Even if it’s you in every single role right now, it won’t be possible to eventually delegate and outsource if you don’t know the roles, own the roles, and document the roles.

These roles include: Visionary, Integrator, Sales/Marketing, Operations, and Finance.

Creating this in our business was eye-opening for us. And if you haven’t done so yet, I highly recommend it. I remember when I first sat down to do this years ago, and realized I had been burying my head in the sand when it came to the finances piece. But like we teach in the Business with Impact Society™, you can’t grow what you don’t track. And making sure to keep the pulse on every area of your business – whether you’re just getting started or are running a multi seven-figure business – well, it matters!

#3

#3 – The Team Meeting.

In the Bonus Chapter on Audible, they included a sample team meeting structure. We implemented this exact structure back in Q1, and it led to the greatest output and productivity our team has ever seen. Not only is team morale higher than ever, but we are able to plan out two weeks in just 45 minutes. And solve issues. And easily spot where any issues are. The bonus chapter alone was worth it’s weight in gold for this book.

My only regret when it comes to this book is that I wish I would have read it sooner. If I had read Traction and RocketFuel before ever hiring my first contractor, I would have saved myself hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in productivity, time, mistakes, and headaches. And that’s why this book is one of my top recommendations for entrepreneurs.

We’re picking 10 new winners every week! And I’m sure some of you unicorns will end up winning time and time again.
Back in 2018 I had the honor of hearing John C. Maxwell speak on stage at an event I attended. I remember adding his book to my wish list on Amazon, and then (to be fully truthful) forgetting all about it. This year, as I was lining up the Top 50+ books I wanted to read, his popped up and I have to say it did NOT disappoint. Here’s why The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership is so good… You know those mornings where you just aren’t feeling like working? Maybe that never happens for you – but it does for me. Well, after reading Atomic Habits, I knew that I had to create a new habit – listening to something that would get me ready to accomplish my goals. Enter practically any book by John Maxwell. And with the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, I committed to listening to just one per day for 21 days. Each day I would turn it on and he would speak for 10-15 minutes about what a leader does… what leadership looks like — and at that point, I was so convinced that I needed to lead from the front, take action, and walk my talk that I couldn’t help but be EXCITED about implementing for the day.

Enter practically any book by John Maxwell. And with the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, I committed to listening to just one per day for 21 days.

This is a book I plan to listen to over and over again… and here are just 3 of my top takeaways from The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership:

#1

#1 – The law of the lid. In this chapter, John Maxwell explains that a person’s leadership ability will determine their effectiveness. Said differently, the lower someone’s ability to lead is, the lower their potential will be. When explaining the law of the lid, he gives a great example – the McDonald brothers. They were incredible single restaurant owners. They were making more money in their day than they knew what to do with. They knew how to fill the doors. How to cut costs. How to improve processes. But they lacked the vision to incorporate and franchise the business. Along came Ray Kroc who had this vision – and within three years, the company had sold its 100 millionth hamburger. Without leadership ability, impact stalls. To be the most effective you can be, you have to raise the lid.

#2

#2 – The law of process. Leadership develops daily – not in a day. In this chapter, John Maxwell shares the story of Anne Scheiber, a widow who retired from the IRS at the age of 51 and at her passing, willed a fortune to Yeshiva University. To the outside world, she was unassuming. She lived in a small, rent-controlled apartment, went to the library once a week to read the Wall Street Journal, but her estate was worth $22 million. How in the world did she build an eight figure fortune? In the 1940s when she retired she had saved $5,000 to invest in stocks. When it came to finances she applied the law of process. Becoming a leader is similar – we don’t make it rich by day-trading. Our success comes from continued habits developed and nurtured daily. What is your plan for personal growth? Do you have a daily discipline of personal growth? To be come an excellent leader, work on it every day.

#3

#3 – The law of the picture. People do what people see. If you’ve read or seen Band of Brothers, you know that the leadership determined the outcome. One example was Officer Winters. He was in front leading the charge. People do what people see. When leaders show the way with right actions, people see this and they follow. Just like our children are always watching what we do, and we can tell them to do things but they model our behavior. No matter what we teach our kids, they insist on modeling our behavior. The same is true with the people we lead. People do what people see. Nothing is more convincing than people who give great advice and set a great example.
These are just three of the 21 principles that John shares in this book in a way that’s relatable, conversational, and implementable.

A Review of James Wedmore’s Business By Design (BBD) Program

Business By Design is a program that has had such a profound impact on my business. And because I get SO many questions about this program, I thought I’d give you a detailed review of EVERYTHING about James Wedmore’s Business By Design — including my EPIC BBD Bonuses (for those who join the program alongside me), my review of James Wedmore’s Business By Design program, and the overall cost!

BBD Rachel and James

Why James Wedmore’s Business By Design?

If you're a coach, author, speaker, course creator, membership owner, or influencer and you're ready to graduate from starting a business to actually running a business with certainty so you can become profitable, consistently create money on demand, and finally step away from your laptop… Business By Design is for you!

But Business By Design isn't just your typical course. Business By Design is a whole experience and process!

Business By Design is the type of training that will transform you from struggling employee to a confident digital CEO. It's the kind of program that includes plug and play processes that will automate everything in your business!

In fact, it's so much more than a program. It's like a cafeteria of options that you can choose to grow your online business — whether you're just getting started or you've been in business for a long time.

I started working with James Wedmore in 2017 and after working with James for the past three years, both in this program and as part of his Inner Circle Mastermind, I can confidently say that I'm a proud affiliate for James Wedmore's Business By Design Program.

Here’s why I recommend this program…

James Wedmore

James Wedmore’s Background & Experience

Business By Design is created by James Wedmore.

For the past 12 years, James Wedmore has been teaching ambitious online entrepreneurs how to skyrocket their businesses.

From building a multiple seven figure business to helping online business owners take the dream of massive income and impact and turn it into a reality, James’ signature course, Business By Design, all of this and more have become possible for digital CEOs all over the globe!

“Starting 2016 I noticed a big glaring gap in the marketplace: the mindset needed for entrepreneurship. I launched my signature program (Business By Design) to help content creators, authors, and coaches make their mark online and leave an impression that LASTS. My mission is simple: show business owners how to make serious cash flow doing what they're good at so that all work and no play becomes all work is play.” – James Wedmore

What’s Included in the Course/How It’s Organized

Business By Design isn't a business course like all the others you may have taken. It's a six module transformation process that will change your business and take you from struggling employee into a take-charge, digital CEO.

If you're wanting to create a low-stress business that gives you the freedom you want and the steady stream of income you need to create the life you love, joining James Wedmore's Business By Design will be the best decision you can make for your future!

BBD Mockup

Each section in Business By Design consists of videos from James and/or his team and includes relevant workbooks, downloads and deliverables (there are also several bonus training sessions!). The content is incredibly informative, clear, and includes exactly what you need to see results in your business!

James walks you through every step of the process…

  • You discover the self-sabotaging, limiting beliefs that are hiding in your lind spots, and jamming you up at every step along the way.
  • You get the clarity to focus on the RIGHT things in your business — so you never waste your time on useless, unproductive tasks.
  • You recognize exactly what your market wants and create online products they’ll love.
  • You get all the “done-for-you” processes that you need to build a real, “grown up” business — one that doesn’t completely rely on you.
  • You’re put on a path to get results — instead of just piling on more learning.
  • It turns everything you think you know about how a successful business works on its head. So that any fears of failure that once held you back, never hold you back again…

In addition to that, there are group calls and a Facebook group that you get continuous access to. In the Facebook group, James has several coaches that are there for you! The group is there to ask questions about the content included in the Business By Design program.

James and his team are consistently answering your questions along the way and giving you the support that you need to implement Business By Design into your business!

The Cost of James Wemore’s BBD Program

The Business By Design Program is a $2,997 (or 6 x $579, or 12 x $297) program that is offered once a year around June.

When you join Business By Design, you get instant access to the six BBD training modules, videos, and exercises.

Plus….

You get all of James' proven and profitable plug-and-play launch maps (not to mention all of James' marketing templates!). You get six live group coaching sessions with James to answer your questions, clear up your doubts, and keep you motivated and on track. Plus you get two additional bonus bundles and a ticket to James's exclusive VIP event (BBD Live).

That means you'll receive personalized support (the group coaching calls, submitting questions in the Facebook group, and support from the community). And this community is a community of online business owners who are so giving and ready to share their advice and the support!

And when you join with my Epic Business By Design (BBD Bonus Bundle), there's even more!

What’s Included in My Epic Business By Design Bonus Bundle?

You can be a great mom AND a great business owner – and I'll show you exactly how I navigate both! This will give us a chance to meet in person and collaborate on helping you grow a business you truly love. 💕

In the event that we are unable to meet live, we will provide an incredible virtual experience to replace the in-person event.

While we're together, we’ll dig into the nitty gritty of all the things you need to do to predictably grow and automate your online business without the guesswork or overwhelm. Yes, these are the things you WISH other gurus would stop glossing over and finally give to you straight. If travel safety becomes a concern – don't dismay – we'll create an EPIC Virtual experience, custom-curated just for you!

PLUS! You'll Also Receive The Recordings of the ENTIRE Workshop Absolutely FREE!

BONUS #2

6 Weeks Accelerator Mastermind

If there's one thing I'm really good at, it's mentoring online business owners who are ready for RESULTS! The main goal here is to make sure you’re supported and held accountable. As you work through the program, there is one thing that we know for sure — you're going to have questions.

And as long as you enroll in James Wedmore’s Business By Design Program through my link, I will make sure that you won't stay stuck on anything longer than necessary.

BONUS #4

Plug-And-Play Automations

A lot of strategy, tons of work and serious dollars went into designing this, but you can have it for FREE if you enroll in the BBD Program with my bonus package. Are you willing to miss it? I hope not.

BONUS #5

One of the questions people ask James the most is “do you teach ads as part of BBD?” The answer is NO. But don’t worry – as part of this bonus, you’ll get access to my Launch Ads Blueprint + a masterclass where we’ll walk through all the details you need to know when it comes to launching!

Facebook Ads are the most effective tool to grow and scale your business quickly, and in this BONUS, you’ll learn the ins and outs to scaling strategically!

My Favorite (& Least Favorite) Things About James Wedmore’s Business By Design Program

One of the things I love the most about James Wedmore’s Business By Design Program is how detailed and solid the training is.

James gives generously. The fact of the matter is he could easily charge $10,000-$20,000 for this program with all the information that he shares.

Not only that… When you begin to implement what James is teaching you through this program, you’ll see a shift in the way that you connect with your audience and in your messaging in your business.

It definitely provides an easy-to-see, realizable return on your investment!

I also really love that you get lifetime access to the video modules, so you're not on a timeline to have to get it all done right away — although, I highly suggest implementing it as quickly as you possibly can!

One of the things that I don't love about the program is that there is SO MUCH content that James teaches.

Now, I know what you're probably thinking: Too much content? How can that be the case? But if you're first getting started, you might come in and find it to be a little overwhelming.

However, that's why James created special paths depending on which level that you're at. And when you combine his paths with all of my incredible bonuses and additional support, it fills in the gaps!

Whether you're a new online business owner who's just getting started or you've been in business for a long time but aren't getting the results that you want… this program is for you!

When you couple my bonus package with what you learn in Business By Design, you'll create a business that's unstoppable!

My Overall Experience with James Wedmore’s Business By Design Program

Having invested more than six figures (yes, that’s $100,000+) in online courses over the last six years, I would call myself an online course connoisseur.

And in my opinion, this program is one of the top three courses that I’ve ever been a part of.

Why?

Simply because of all the value you get in this program… it can't be beat! It's really full of amazing content and value. I'm not kidding when I say that this course legitimately has everything you could possibly want or need to help you start or scale your business to the next level, generate more leads, convert more sales, and become the digital CEO of your business!

This course begins with making sure you understand your mindset and the goals you want to achieve in your business: Who are you here for? And why are you here?

Through a series of exercises and action items, James helps you create a business that fuels your passions and creativity, and generates the revenue that you want.

James walks you through…

  • How to master the habits and strategies of being super effective in everything that you do
  • How to create a home-run irresistible offer
  • How to create a sales system that effectively sells your product while creating demand and desire without having to rely on pushing outdated sales techniques.
  • How to strategically build a team to grow your business (no matter what your budget is or what stage of business you're in) so you can focus on the things you were meant to do
  • And how to build momentum and scale your business to grow it two times, five times, or even ten times more (all without working 10 times harder!).

James also includes several additional bonuses. Each bonus, if offered alone, would cost more than $2,000 (I paid over $2,000 for similar courses that are included in just his bonuses) and the fact that James teaches you exactly how to train a team or do it yourself + has all of the bonus videos + has his team of coaches in the Facebook group to answer your specific questions, is absolutely unbelievable!

So again, I mean, when I say it… This program is absolutely incredible and you could start seeing results almost immediately!

The Role James Wedmore’s Business By Design Program Has Played in My Business?

I joined Business By Design when I joined James Wedmore's Inner Circle program back in 2017.

What happened when I implemented his trainings, tools, and strategies?

EVERYTHING changed!

I went from working until 2:00 AM every night, barely making ends meet, to working four hours a day, four days a week, and growing my business almost 10x what it was originally.

Plugging into James' proven system has helped us generate new sales every single day in our business!

This is a training unlike any other you’ve ever been a part of.

Final Thoughts

Business By Design will teach you how to exponentially increase your income and impact in your online business.

In Business By Design, James hands over the exact process maps and execution guides that he and his team have used to create and scale their eight figure business, straight from his playbook into your hands for you to replicate and make your own.

If you're ready to become the digital CEO of your business instead of being your own employee and increase your revenue without working longer hours, then James Wedmore's Business By Design program is a right fit for you!

A Review of Stu McLaren’s Tribe Program

A Review of Stu McLaren’s Tribe Program

Tribe by Stu Banner

In this Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Review post you may find affiliate links, which means that I may receive some compensation if you purchase something through that link. However, please know that I only ever recommend products I love and have personally used!

A Review of Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Program

TRIBE is a program that had such a profound impact on my business. And because I get SO many questions about this program, I thought I’d give you a detailed review of EVERYTHING about Stu McLaren’s TRIBE — including my EPIC TRIBE Bonuses (for those who join the program alongside me), my review of Stu McLaren’s TRIBE program, and the overall cost!

Tribe

Why Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Program?

We've all heard about the importance of recurring revenue models in our businesses. And if you're reading this right now, you've probably thought, maybe a membership site would be a good way for you to deliver your content to your audience. Right?

But how do you do that? How do you put it all together? How do you put it in place?

And more importantly, how do you get people to buy your membership and keep them coming back?

Most struggling online business owners might try to create a membership, but when they don’t have people lining up around the “virtual” block to join, they stop and they give up.

But when you plug into a proven formula, like Stu McLaren's TRIBE program, you learn how to create a membership that's going to keep your audience coming back again and again… with a line around the “virtual” doors at cart open.

You can turn what you already know, love, and do into recurring revenue. You can learn the powerful secrets successful membership owners are using to build wildly successful businesses around what they already know, love, and do!

I joined Stu McLaren's TRIBE in 2018 and after working with Stu McLaren, both in this program and as part of a mastermind event that we both attended, I can confidently say that I'm a proud affiliate for Stu McLaren's TRIBE.

Here’s why I recommend this program…

Stu McLaren

Stu McLaren’s Background & Experience

TRIBE is created by Stu McLaren.

Stu McLaren is the founder of TRIBE. For the past 12 years, Stu McLaren has been working intimately with tens of thousands of authors, speakers, coaches, consultants, and business owners to transform what they know, love, and do into recurring revenue through the power of a highly successful membership business.

Stu believes that membership and subscription is the business model of the future and he is uniquely positioned to show online business owners, course creators and entrepreneurs how to launch and grow your own successful online membership.

Here's why…

As a former co-founder of the world's leading membership platform for WordPress, WishList member, and now creator of the TRIBE experience, he has a unique behind-the-scenes perspective of what works in membership and subscription markets. And he's been doing it in virtually every market you can think of.

Through it all, he's discovered the subtle nuances that make a big difference in the success of sites that thrive year over year, versus those that struggle and stall.

Why “TRIBE”?

Stu is very aware of the word ‘tribe’ and how it can be interpreted differently. The fact is there are a number of different definitions and Stu’s interpretation of the word is one that we see as tremendously positive, which brings people together, not divides them.

“For us, TRIBE, is a community of like-minded people, a family, which we very much are. in quotes. Again, there are many interpretations of this word. And we do not believe the word itself is the problem. It's the way in which people associate the word in their mind and the context in which it's being used. Words are important, but what's more important is the way in which they are used and the context behind them—especially for a word that has a broad definition.”
Stu McLaren

What’s Included in the Course/How It’s Organized

TRIBE isn't a business course like all the others you may have taken. It's a seven module transformation process that will change your business and teach you how to create a membership program that people want. If you're wanting to create a low stress business that gives you the freedom you want and the steady stream of recurring revenue you need to create the life you love, joining Stu McLaren's TRIBE will be the best decision you can make for your future.

 

Tribe Mockup

Each section in TRIBE consists of videos from Stu and/or his team, and includes relevant workbooks, downloads and deliverables. There are also several bonus training sessions. The content is incredibly informative, clear, and includes exactly what you need to do to see results in your business!

Stu walks you through every step of the process — from determining why people will join your membership, to creating a success path that keeps them coming back, to how to create your core content, your monthly content, your 12 month content calendar, how to build your audience, your list, and your launch, to marketing customer attention and growth…PLUS a host of other amazing bonuses! TRIBE covers it all.

In addition to all of that, there are weekly calls and a Facebook group that you get access to for the duration of the program. The Facebook group is there for you and it's for asking questions about the content included in the TRIBE program.

Stu and his team are there for you answering your questions along the way and giving you the support that you need to implement TRIBE into your business.

The Cost of Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Program

The TRIBE Program is a $1,997 (or 6 x $397) program that is offered once a year around April.

It consists of seven core modules covering foundations, content, marketing, retention, and growth. There are also tons of incredible bonuses, live group coaching calls, and an extremely active Facebook group community for the duration of the program!

That means you’ll receive personalized support (the group coaching calls, submitting questions in the Facebook group) and support from the community… And this community is a community of online business owners who are so giving and ready to share their advice and their support.

My Favorite (& Least Favorite) Things About Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Program

One of the things I love the most about Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Program is how detailed and solid the training is. Stu gives generously. The fact of the matter is he could easily charge more for this program with all the information that he shares.

Not only that… When you begin to implement what Stu is teaching you through this program, you’ll see a shift in the way that you connect with your members.

It definitely provides an easy-to-see, realizable return on your investment!

I also really love that you get lifetime access to the video modules, so you're not on a timeline to have to get it all done right away—although, I highly suggest implementing it as quickly as you possibly can!

One of the things that I don’t love about the program is specific to the marketing and launch strategies that Stu teaches.

If you're a new online business owner who's just getting started and who may not already have your funnels and your offers dialed in yet, this program is missing some of those pieces… AND… That's why I created my Epic TRIBE Bonus Package—because when it’s coupled with what you learn in Stu McLaren's TRIBE, it fills in the gaps.

My Overall Experience with Stu McLaren’s TRIBE?

Having invested more than six figures (yes, that’s $100,000+) in online courses over the last six years, I would call myself an online course connoisseur.

And in my opinion, this program is one of the top five courses that I’ve ever been a part of.

Why?

Simply because of ALL the value you get in this program on how to create a membership that keeps people coming back time and time again.

This course (paired with my Bonus Package!) has everything you could possibly want or need to create a membership and fill it!

In Stu McLaren's TRIBE, you'll learn his foundation, content, marketing, retention, and growth strategies that—coupled with my funnel, ads, and marketing strategies—will allow you not just to create a membership program, but to have all of the information you need to fill it!

I mean it when I say that this course is fantastic and when you use it alongside my bonuses, you can start seeing results quickly!

The Role Stu McLaren’s TRIBE Has Played in My Business?

I joined TRIBE six months before I released my membership, The Business With Impact Society™.

What happened when I implemented his trainings, tools, and membership strategies?

I filled my course with the first 100 members when we began implementing this system and had over a 76% retention rate in the first year…

It was amazing!
