It’s time to smack business failure, frustration and overwhelm in the face and tell them to be gone for good.
I had the pleasure of interviewing another Les Brown top-earner expert. Meet Valerie Priester, a top-ranking business strategist who works with newbie business owners and those currently feeling like throwing in the towel.
She throws it back and teaches you how to catch it with a new electrifying business mindset, skillset and proven 6-figure strategies. Valerie Priester is no stranger to understanding what it takes to build a successful business.
Even her millennial clients will confirm that she’s a sharp-shooter, cuts to the chase to tell you what you’re doing wrong, why your strategy isn’t working and what you really need in order to fix your business weaknesses.
Read the live interview, but only if you dare to dream higher and make it to the top.
1. Tell the readers a little about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do? Add anything else you want to share.
I live in Nashville, TN. I am a Certified Business & Life Strategist, Certified Les Brown Coach, Speaker, & Trainer, a Motivational Speaker, and an Amazon Best-Selling Author.
Many call me the Master Coach of the Coaches. I help female heart-centered coaches eliminate frustration, confusion, and fear so they can confidently launch their business.
When I first started my coaching practice, I didn’t have anyone to guide me through the process of building a business around the skillset of coaching.
I struggled for years trying to figure it out on my own. My passion now is to help as many new coaches as possible avoid the same pitfalls I experienced.
You help new entrepreneurs and new business owners, as well as already existing business owners, who feel confused and overwhelmed with a 6-figure blueprint to scale higher in 90-days or less.
2. Can you share some advice and one or two of your strategies with everyone?
The most valuable advice I can give new entrepreneurs and new business owners is to start with the end in mind. Start with your vision.
What’s the vision you hold for your business? You often hear people say they want to make 6-figures, but the truth is, this may not be your vision for your business.
Too many times entrepreneurs and business owners go in with a picture of what someone else thinks should be their definition of success.
Define success for yourself. If you’re in a stage of life where you want a business that generates $50k a year, hold that as your vision and create a plan to achieve it.
I teach my clients the two most important things they must be clear about; 1) whom they want to serve, and 2) what problem they want to solve.
When there’s clarity around these two things, the new entrepreneur or new business owner can easily plot the course to success – be it a 6-figure or 5-figure empire.
3. Will you offer a little more advice to struggling business owners about how to scale up, level up and increase sales?
One way to scale up, level up, and increase sales is to niche down. What I find to be true of many business owners is they are afraid to claim a real niche.
They usually feel that they will lose money by niching down. The truth is, you make more money when you claim a real niche.
Getting clear on your niche helps with your marketing message, which in turn helps more people self-identify with what you have to offer, which equates to more sales.
4. I know you have an event rapidly approaching, “Entrepreneur Success Summit.” Tell the readers a little about what you want to teach the attendees this year.
We will do a deep dive into practices and routines that help develop a mindset of successful thinking.
We will also help those that come equipped set up the three basic systems required for a business; email marketing system, an online scheduling system, and payment system.
If there’s an interest in podcasting, they will learn how to set up their podcast, how to use podcasting to enhance their brand and visibility effectively, and we will provide a resource guide to help them get the right equipment for podcasting.
We will help the attendees learn how to use social media to enhance their brand and gain exposure. And, another segment will cover how to use Facebook Ads. There will be a panel discussion about taxes, banking/finance, human resources, and legal business structure.
Moreover, this event is designed as an intensive VIP Work Tank. We expect the attendees to bring their laptops, tablets, iPads and be ready to do the work. This is not your typical rah-rah, motivation, inspiration event. I believe we’ve had enough motivation; it’s time for implementation.
