Eps 62: Why You Need to Be Proactive Not Reactive In Business

Right now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, there more reason than ever to be proactive not reactive in your business.

I know it can be tempting to throw everything up in the air, and get to work creating an offer or service that you could release as quickly as possible to help people in their time of need.

Or resurrect an old course or offer that might actually land really well right now with your customers, earn you some money and make you feel like you’re doing something useful.

I get it. Oh I soooo get it. In the last two weeks I’ve felt called to show up and serve others more than ever.

In my work as a business coach who focuses on how to get paid to be you, I’ve had ALL the ideas on how I can most quickly pivot, create and release helpful courses or programs right now.

How I can reach those entrepreneurs who’s revenues have been slashed or who have lost their jobs or livelihoods overnight.

I was working on this, while pouring energy into my book crowdfunding campaign and welcoming in all the lovely students who chose the ‘Write Your Damn Book’ reward level to join me live over 60 days.

And by the start of this week I was exhausted. And I realised I need to stop, refocus and stick to my plan.

Moreover, I needed to come back to my mission to help 1,000 women entrepreneurs earn $10K per month and donate 1% to a cause of their choice.

The minute I focused back on that, I realised, they are the people who I want to serve.

By honouring my mission and my word, and turning up to support them right now, means they can turn up to support their community and so it goes on – a positive ripple effect of women helping women rise up.

Creatives, coaches, consultants and service-based businesses – this is your time to step up, stay true to your plan, and continue to help your customers in the way that you do best.

Pivot if it’s necessary, make an offer that could dramatically help or impact others in a positive way, if you need.

But stay focused on doing what you do well, with the resources you have, and the time that you have, to keep on showing up and providing.

Don’t take advantage of people who are desperate. Don’t market like crazy to people who are vulnerable.

How you show up and act right now, is how you will be remembered for a long time.

So make sure you come from a place of integrity, generosity, compassion and genuine value creation.

Reflect and ask yourself, are you being proactive or reactive?

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why you need to be proactive in business rather than reactive right now
  • What to focus on during the coronavirus pandemic to stay true to your values
  • How I’m being proactive in my business right now
  • Why I am staying true to my course and focusing on my new $10K Club membership

Eps 61: How to Uncover Your Hidden Profit Goldmines

Right now, if you’re in business for yourself, you’re likely looking for ways to uncover hidden profit in your business so you can replace that lost revenue.

If you’re about to start a business you’re probably wondering if this is even the right time?

Either way I know you are worried about the business impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but did you know that some of the best-known companies were launched during a recession?

Companies like Disneyland, Microsoft, Burger King and Apple all managed to profit and grow like crazy during a recession or depression and so many more!

Susie Carder is one heck of a powerhouse. Her energy, smarts and ability to power up her profits is impressive.

Susie started out as a low paid hairdresser trying to support her 2 little girls. But working for someone else became a challenge (to say the least).

So she decided to do whatever it took to create her own business. After much blood sweat and tears (mixed with cheap mascara) she went on to create, not one, but two $10 Million companies!

Her core genius is the ability to simplify complicated issues by creating simple proven systems that are guaranteed to create dramatic growth for any company.

She has helped over 100,000 entrepreneurs increase their revenues by more than 3000% and worked with top business moguls including John Assaraf, Lisa Nichols, Steve Harvey, Doug Carter, and Paul Mitchell.

In this interview with me she totally over delivers. It was such a delight to have Susie’s energy and refreshing no BS advice to grow your business, uncover more profit and back yourself right now.

Eps 59: Five Ways to Thrive and Live In Possibility

How are you going to thrive and live in possibility during this unprecedented time?

It’s a question I’ve been asking myself since last week and it’s left me hopeful, proactive and purposeful.

I am currently at home in self-isolation for the next 14 days, and as of midnight March 25 New Zealand is now in lockdown for 30 days to contain this virus.

This global pandemic is emotionally challenging, that’s for sure. Each day brings you new feelings and thoughts, concerns and fears, mixed in with hope, solutions, positivity and opportunity.

I’ve been speaking to my clients and students and the range of feelings is so beautifully human. Yet each of them is doing what they can, with what they have, to get through this and even thrive.

One thing that none of us can deny now is this is REAL. And this is our new norm for the foreseeable future.

So in today’s podcast I wanted to share the ways you can cope with self-isolation as well as the ways to thrive by looking at all the available opportunities.

In times like this, the best thing to do is make the most out of it. How you behave, respond and act right now will set you up for how you will lead others in the future.

It’s in these most trying times that you can step up and be your best possible self, not only for you but for your loved ones, peers and strangers who need your gifts.

In this episode, I share what is happening out there in terms of potential opportunities for you and your business, what areas are thriving, and where to help people right now.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • 5 thriving areas with the most potential and opportunities for you to capitalise on
  • The two key questions to ask yourself to make the most out of this situation
  • The importance of a daily ritual and routine to feel grounded and more certain

Eps 57: How to Launch Your Podcast and Why

Have you ever thought about starting your own podcast?

I’ve been having a love affair with podcasts ever since I launched mine back in 2012.

As you may well know I LOVE podcasting and I am a huge fan of listening to podcasts too.

Whenever I listen to other podcasts, it inspires me with ideas of how I do and don’t want to do mine.

The art of podcasting has taught me so much and as a medium it’s a fantastic business tool too.

Not other medium allows you to speak directly into the ears of one person at a time and get their undivided attention.

Even if you’re out running while listening, it’s still that one person’s voice (or two if it’s an interview of joint podcast) speaking directly to you, into your ears.

With that in mind I wanted to bring on a guest to the Untapped Podcast who got into podcasting in the last few years, and has started not one podcast, but two!

Sarah Mikutel is a globetrotting podcast consultant and founder of the online course Podcast Launch Academy.

Her podcasts Podcasting Step by Step and the Postcard Academy, have been named best podcast about podcasting and best travel podcast, respectively!

Born and raised in the U.S., Sarah’s spent nearly a decade living the expat life in Europe and believes that true independence means the freedom to choose where, when, and how you spend your time and attention.

She loves working with fellow citizens of the world who want to use the power of podcasting to connect to their global community and build a brand and business that supports a freedom-based life.

In this episode, Sarah shares:

  • How to start and run a podcast while traveling the world
  • How Sarah started podcasting and the key lessons she learned
  • When it comes to decisions, are you a maximizer or a satisficer?
  • Her top tips to start and grow a podcast from scratch
  • Common podcasting mistakes to avoid when you’re starting your podcast

Eps 56: My Mission for 2020 Revealed

What’s your mission in life? Are you willing to share it? Are you willing to also sacrifice everything to make it happen?

Well, I’m truly excited because I finally have my mission for 2020 and beyond.

In this episode, I share it with you as well as why it’s so important to have a purpose or a mission to guide you in everything you do.

Click play below to listen or read on for the full episode in blog format!

It seems really appropriate for me to drop in a solo episode because I’ve been doing a lot of work, thinking, reflecting and pontificating and really wanting to get to the heart of my new mission.

If you’ve known me for many years, you might remember my mission for the Suitcase Entrepreneur, in my book and in my Painted Picture.

It was to help a million entrepreneurs create freedom in business and adventure in life.

If you’ve read my Suitcase Entrepreneur book, that’s the tagline.

Now I never figured that I would individually be able to impact a million people but I knew at the time there was definitely a way to be able to create a ripple effect even if it started with a hundred, a thousand or more.

And at the time, I was like, “Well, hang on a minute, how have I set to come to this number of a million and is it possible?”

I thought it really was because I had:

  • 40,000+ downloads of my podcast per month
  • Thousands of people watch my videos on YouTube
  • 27,000 fabulous folks on my email list
  • Really great traffic to my blog
  • My Suitcase Entrepreneur book out and people were sharing my work.

So that’s how I got to that amount.

It still seemed big and scary and ridiculous, but at the same time, it really drove me to really show up and help people do that through everything I did.

My products, my courses, my workshops, my retreats were all about making that mission a reality.

Now, since 2017 and coming back to New Zealand, settling in a little bit and creating everything under my own personal name and brand, I haven’t had a clear mission for quite a few years.

I wouldn’t say it’s been bothering me, because I’ve been on this journey to understand who I want to serve, how I want to show up and who I want to impact.

But the time is nigh to have a mission to take me forth into this new decade.

I have been working through a great book called “Essentialism” by Greg McKeown

He talks about essentialists understanding exactly what their priorities are and being super clear about that, to the point that they cut out everything else that is not serving them.

And so when it came to setting this mission, the minute I did, I was able to make so many little decisions that have been pending in my mind.

Suddenly, I was able to say, I don’t need to do X because it doesn’t serve my mission, but I can definitely do Y because that does.

It put everything into crystal clear vision for me of what was important and what was totally not.

How I came to develop my new Mission

Last week I read Essentialism in two days flat. Greg’s message about when you get really clear on your purpose, on your why, it puts everything else into place and you cut out all the extra crap – really hit home.

You start to say no to things and you only say yes to the things that are going to serve the purpose that you are working towards.

Non-essentialists say yes to everything, think they can do everything, have too many things going on at once and are easily distracted.

As I read that it definitely reminded me of points of my life last year when I was saying yes to everything, testing everything out, including a job, contract, my business and triathlon training! 

All sorts of stuff and just running myself ragged in the process learning so much about what mattered to me and what didn’t.

It was a great learning experience but imagine going through life like that all the time. And people do.

You might even be reading this and going, “Oh my God Nat that’s me!”

The one thing in the book that he said, that I was like, “Oh no! I do this.” is:

I will work right up into the last minute of a meeting, a podcast interview or even a personal meet-up in town, thinking that if I squeeze one extra minute out it’s going to be that much better for me versus stopping, preparing, getting there early, being all great and on time.

So I’ve been making more of an effort on that before I even was reading this book, but the minute I read that I was like, “Yeah, that is such a stupid thing to be doing.”

It’s stressful. The extra few minutes you are squeezing in to get that thing done is completely not necessary and you can pick it up later.

And also it makes you look frazzled, less prepared, less professional and frankly, you feel that way.

So that was one of the big moments for me.

I asked myself, why am I always trying to squeeze all these things in versus understanding and knowing the exact things I want to be working on.

The other thing that helped me to define my mission was watching a training session from Hilary Rushford.

She was talking about getting your brand and mission aligned.

What I really liked is that she doesn’t have all the answers. She’s been in business for as many years as me.

She’s really successful. But I love that she’s so honest about what they don’t do well in her business and what they haven’t yet figured out, and even what they’ve recently done.

It’s really refreshing to hear because it shows you that nobody has their stuff together that much.

And she was talking about how, she could get a sponsor for her podcast and she could do this other thing and she could launch something but is it aligned to her mission of helping people do what she wants to help them do, which is around more of this elegant excellence and understanding their personal style.

I really just like how she was pointing out if I was to take that on, that might get me more immediate money but is it actually destroying my chances in the long term of building this up organically, of promoting my own products, of doing these other things?

I also liked that in Essentialism, and also in what Hilary is saying, is that every single time you say yes to something or you choose to make a decision around something that doesn’t serve your purpose perfectly for short term profits or gain, you are actually making a trade off for your long term benefit.

Every single time you accept something, you’re making a trade off.

And if you want to stay true to your mission, to your purpose, to your why, you will have to make these trade offs.

It sometimes will seem like you’re giving up the best opportunity in the world, but if it doesn’t serve the mission of the purpose that you’re on, then you 100 percent need to make that choice and make the right one.

So as I’m watching her training session, while cycling on my indoor bike trainer, I got a fit of inspiration and my mission came to me so fast, I leaned over to the whiteboard right next to me and started writing it down.

I was literally so excited as I was listening to Hillary. She was clarifying a few things for herself. And I’m on this bike and I’m like, “Woo hoo! Inspiration right now.”

I had kind of come up with this mission a few months ago after my quarter Ironman and I was talking through with Josh, that I really wanted to have a tangible reason and outcome for the people that I was serving. 

In this moment though, it just came straight back out of me and onto the whiteboard.

And here it is. I know you’ve been waiting all this time to hear it. I’m sure you are hopefully still with me.

So the mission for Natalie Sisson for 2020 and beyond is:

My Mission: To help 1000 women make $10,000 a month and contribute at least 1% of that to a cause that is dear to their heart.

Preferably a cause that furthers the empowerment of young girls and women. So there it is.

So why is this exciting to me and big to me and what may surprise you about it?

Well, first off, I am targeting women and I have never outright publicly announced that I want to help just women.

Currently women make up around 85% of my client and customer base – awesome women who have come to my retreats, my workshops, who buy my products, come on my courses, etc.

And don’t get me wrong, I love men. They’re awesome. And I have quite a few customers and people that I’ve helped over the years.

But I know that by helping young girls and women in communities, especially developing communities, those women and girls are able to help the entire community grow.

In fact World Vision states:

Empowering women is essential to the health and social development of families, communities and countries. When women are living safe, fulfilled and productive lives, they can reach their full potential. contributing their skills to the workforce and can raise happier and healthier children. They are also able to help fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.

And I do see this in the Western world as well, where is if you empower one woman to lead, she will lead an entire community, an entire team or an entire business to success. 

If I can help one woman to do that, then the ripple effect is far greater than anything else I could have imagined.

So I want to help women specifically because I also believe they are really awesome at being coachable.

And when they’re given the right advice and the right tools and frameworks to help them, they just grow like crazy.

They are malleable, open minded, nurturing, empowering and they also share what they are learning and doing with others. So as I said that ripple effect is really important.

Why one thousand women?

Well, a thousand feels pretty full on right now for me to help make ten thousand a month. But I want to start with 10.

I want to start with 10 awesome women who put their hand up and say, “Natalie, I want to work with you.”

If you want to be part of mine and one of the first 10 people I want to help then apply here

I’m going to work with you in an intensive mastermind kind of style.

I haven’t worked out all the details, but it’s coming to me like crazy of how I’m going to methodically help you where you’re at right now in your work or business to be able to earn $10,000 in income from multiple revenue streams and I’m leading this over the space of 12 months.

So by the end of 12 months, you’d be hitting that $10k a month mark and it may come well before that and it may take longer. Really depends on where you’re at.

Apply here to find out more and have a chat!

The point is, is that I want to get at least these 10 women to earning $10K a month and if I can help them get to $10K a month, it’s no doubt that they will be able to share that with other women.

And if each of them helps another ten woman, then we’re at a hundred. Right?

And over time, I would love that to expand to that to helping 100 women and then through to a thousand.

But again, I’m not feeling that I have to be the one doing that individually. I feel if I can empower the first ten, it’s going to create that amazing ripple effect of women helping women.

Why $10,000 a month in income?

It’s a pretty big number, especially when you’re in your first formative years of business.

It took me a long time to get to $10K in mine. $10K is in my mind still a lot of money. You could do a lot with $10K.

It works out obviously $120,000 a year and all the research shows anything over and above $75,000 doesn’t make you happier.

In an Inc article The Exact Amount of Money it Takes to Make a Person Happy Just Got an Update, Andrew T. Jebb, a doctoral student at Purdue University writes:

“We found the ideal income point is $95,000 for life evaluation and $60,000 to $75,000 for emotional well-being… this amount is for individuals and would likely be higher for families.” 

But I really like that $120,000 provides a pretty decent buffer.

  • If you have a mortgage, it allows you to pay that mortgage.
  • If you have kids and a family, it allows you to provide for them.
  • It allows you to invest in your business;
  • And for some people it’s a big stretch goal and it would be amazing to have that income coming in every month. 

Obviously, that’s not profit, but in an online business in particular, you can get profit levels of 60, 70, 80 percent.

So depending on how the revenue is made up of that income, there’s some lots of room there for savings, investment and growing your financial freedom.

So that’s why I chose $10K because it’s gnarly enough for some people. It’s a bit of a stretch for some.

For others, it probably seems very unrealistic.

It’s a big goal and consistently hitting that is the key.

And more importantly, consistently hitting that with residual revenue streams that are leveraged so you don’t actually have to trade time for money.

I’m not just talking about business revenue here.

I’m talking about revenue from property, from affiliates, from sponsorship, from speaking, from books, from coaching, consulting, teaching, from services, less so, but initially and also from leveraged income – so selling other people’s products and services.

That’s basically what I’m thinking of is how can I help people monetize themselves, get paid to be them, earn multiple revenue streams that sit really well with them, that are aligned with their business and their philosophy and do it consistently month after month.

And then the final part is really important to me because I currently tithe or give.

It’s another way of putting or contribute around 5 to 10 percent of my income each month to causes that I really like. 

I do this through my Freedom Fund, which is set up with the Gift Trust which is a registered financial company that distribute my money in the Freedom Fund.

I put my money each month into the Freedom Fund and then I have hand-selected charities that mean a lot to me that help the causes that are important to me and that money I can gift at any point to them like in a lump sum.

And what I’d love to do is have each of these women who work with me to achieve this and work on their own income generation to at least contribute 1 percent of their earnings per month to either my Freedom Fund, which then we get to distribute as a collective and say, hey, I’d love to go here or there, or they can choose to do it themselves through Kiva or directly to the charities that they love.

But wouldn’t it be freaking amazing if these 10 women initially earn $10K a month and if we get to a thousand women earning $10K a month, that is $10 million collectively per month.

And if just 1 percent of that is going to charity, that’s one hundred thousand dollars a month.

So while this dream and this hope and this vision may be three, five, even ten years away to help the thousand women, who knows?

It could be way sooner, especially when I put my mind to stuff. But I love just starting even with these 10 women, because collectively you’d be earning a $100K a month.

And that means that a thousand or up to ten thousand dollars is going to go to these incredible charities who are empowering young girls, woman sustainability, whatever is dear to your heart to actually benefit as well.

And it just feels really great to give to know that you are contributing to others and giving them a hand up, especially when you needed a hand up, probably when you started out.

Somebody might have given you some money, loaned you some funds, given you a bit of a kickstarts so you could start your business or your side hustle your freelance career.

I think it’s always great to be able to give and pass that on.

So that is the mission. To help one thousand women earn ten thousand dollars a month and give one percent of those earnings to causes that are dear to their heart.

I’m super excited about this. I would love to know what you think about it and leave a comment with your mission if you have one.

How To Use Virtual Summits To Design Your Ideal Lifestyle Business

What if I told you that there is a business model that would let you design your ideal lifestyle business.

That can dramatically grow your email list, build a tribe of people who love what you say and allow you to setup a funnel that brings in tens of thousands of dollars with products and courses and that you can do it based around living your dream lifestyle.

Does that sound to good to be true?

Well according to Mitch Asser it’s not. Mitch’s story is the perfect example of how anybody can overcome the obstacles in their life and achieve anything they set their mind to.

Before he broke through to build multiple successful online businesses, he had to overcome a lot of adversity. From abusing drugs and alcohol as a teenager, to losing tens of thousands of dollars trying to figure all this ‘make money online’ stuff out.

Fast forward a few short years he built and sold a multi 6-figure natural health company from the ground up. He used many growth hacking methods to go from a following of 0 to over 60,000 people and over 3,000 customers in just 3 short years.

A lot of his success has come from online virtual summits. In fact, Mitch has delivered or been a part of more online virtual summits than almost anyone in the world!

He has been on the front-lines of direct response digital marketing for over 4 years. Through his work on his own businesses and his clients he’s been able to help generate more than 250,000 highly qualified leads resulting in over $5 Million in revenue.

This is the model that I’m referring to in this episode of the Untapped podcast, and my interview with Mitch might just blow your mind wide open to the possibilities that lie before you using virtual summits.

In this episode, Mitch reveals:

  • How Mitch is earning a great living doing what he loves, while living in a freedom camper
  • What’s appealing about virtual summits that we can all tap into
  • His step by step guide to creating a virtual summit
  • Mitch’s thoughts on virtual summits with onerous promotional requirements
  • The realities of hosting a virtual summit
  • The key aspects to summit success

How to Succeed in Business without Sacrificing Everything

Many of us believe that there is no success without sacrifice. But is that true?

As a self-proclaimed Freedomist, and author of a book about having your own Freedom Plan I happen to know that you can have a thriving business and a lifestyle you love at the same time.

But it takes vision and then planning, discipline and systems to make sure you stay true to that vision.

I’m always keen to learn from others as I love to layer on top of what I’ve already done and figured out, with more wisdom and strategies that work.

So when David Finkel got in touch to talk about his Freedom Formula I was all ears.

David is the CEO of Maui Mastermind, one of the world’s premier business coaching companies, which has worked with over 100,000 business leaders, helping them grow their companies and get their lives back.

David’s clients enjoy an average annual growth rate five times higher than the average privately held company in the United States, and at the same time, these business leaders have dramatically decreased their working hours.

Over the past 20 years, David and the other Maui coaches and advisors have personally started and scaled companies with an aggregate value of $63 billion.

David eats his own cooking which has allowed him the time to start, scale, and sell multiple successful ventures, be on the boards of several other companies, all while holding his working hours to under 40 hours per week and taking 10 weeks of vacation each year.

The Wall Street Journal bestselling author of eleven books, David’s syndicated business articles on Inc.com, Fastcompany.com, and Forbes.com have garnered millions of readers.

His work has been featured in such prestigious media outlets as the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, Fox Business, MSNBC, and Inc. Magazine.

Impressed yet? You should be as David really does walk his talk.

In this episode, David reveals:

  • Why working longer and harder doesn’t pay off (and what actually does)
  • How to escape the “time and effort” economy
  • Why the 80-20 principle doesn’t go far enough (and how to take it to its most productive extreme)
  • How to structure the day and week to reclaim five or more hours each week in usable blocks
  • How to operationalize the work/life balance
  • What strategies to utilize to recover time and attention from distractions
