Make 2018 Your Year

January 8-March 31, 2018

If you're like me, you struggle with spending money on yourself. It feels indulgent, maybe even risky. But here's the thing: a course like this isn't a splurge, it's an investment. This is a down payment on a new life—one with limitless possibilities and with you calling the shots. You'll come out on the other side of our twelve weeks together stronger, braver, and ready to take on the world.

As part of this special course launch group, you’ll get a massive discount on the course and exclusive access to live Q&As and office hours, as well as all the benefits outlined above. Here's just a taste of what we'll cover:

The basics

[weeks 1-4]
  • Facing overwhelm and the fear of failure

  • Knowing where to even start and setting goals

  • Knowing when to take the plunge: quit your current job or start on the side?

  • Details like health insurance, where to work and when, legal and taxes

  • Figure out how much to charge for your services

  • Estimates and invoices, project and financial management

Brand identity

[weeks 5-8]
  • Narrow in on your target audience: know who to sell to and who not to sell to.

  • Identify your brand personality and what will set you apart.

  • Name your baby: create a memorable and unique business name

  • Your logo: how to create a strategic and powerful visual brand identity

  • Define your message: Draw customers in with a consistent, compelling story.

  • Learn how to steward your brand to help grow your customer base.

Digital marketing

[weeks 9-12]
  • Create a tribe of raving fans through online engagement

  • How to self-promote online without feeling smarmy or getting unfriended

  • Social media: the basics, best practices, and how to keep up

  • Create a digital marketing roadmap to help you stay on course

  • Build and leverage an email list to engage and convert

Here’s what we won’t cover:

  • We won't actually create logos or design web sites together, but you'll get all the tools and info you need to make super smart decisions and run with these things.
  • In-depth tax or legal issues. We’ll do a broad overview of what to  think about here, but you’ll want to hire trusted experts in these areas if you need specific advice.

From side gig to six figures

I never dreamed I could run a business. I figured you had to go to business school to do that. But deep inside I had a passion for writing and marketing that was unstoppable. And I desperately wanted to craft a life that worked for me and my family. I wanted to control my own calendar, take on projects that appealed to me, and be able to prioritize family and fun.

I wanted to do what I loved on my terms.

So I launched what I thought would be just a little side gig, DropLeaf Communications. Before long, I was fully supporting my family of five and had hired over 15 contractors to help.

Sometimes I cringe when I remember the stifling fear of failure that almost held me back. I asked questions like: What if this is a huge mistake? What if it jeopardizes our finances? What if this bombs and everyone knows I failed? 

Not starting my business would’ve been one of the biggest regrets of my life. You can craft the life you’ve always wanted. You just have to start somewhere. I’d encourage you to start here, start now.

Stop Dreaming. Start Doing.
