Build Your Email List
Your email list is BAE. Just in case you didn’t know. Your email list is where you get your coins. If you are depending on social media and hashtags and praying that the algorithms are working in your favor and people see your posts and purchase a product or service you’ve got the game all wrong. Just like content is king. Your email list is BAE.Just like content is king. Your email list is BAE. Click To Tweet
Yes social media and hashtags are super important. Social media is a strategy to grow your business, but you have to make sure that you are providing value and your social media is working for you in order to convert properly. Your goal should be to convert your social media followers to loyal clients. Start building your email list by hosting free webinars, give out free worksheets, checklists, or e-guides, free email challenges or free courses. With email addresses you don’t have to hope and pray that someone will see your new launch or promotions. Email addresses allow you to have direct contact and you know that your audience won’t miss a thing because it will always be waiting for them in their email box.
Make sure that you include your call to actions and links in your social media bios so that people can sign up to receive your free content.
Reading books on business and entrepreneurship is one of the most affordable and valuable ways to get to the next level. Reading exposes you to new strategies, new information, new ways to achieve certain goals, expands your thinking, increases your vocabulary, and most importantly you learn from others experiences. There are so many benefits to reading. I have learned so much in business just from reading books. You don’t need a degree to be an entrepreneur or creative. You can qualify yourself and grow your expertise with business and self-help books. Reading will get you to the next level for sure and shift your mindset!

Get an Accountability Partner
Having an accountability partner has an impact on how far you can climb up the success ladder. When you have someone to hold you accountable to the goals you’ve set you will procrastinate less and get more done. If no one is holding you accountable, you lack urgency to achieve your goals and you will get comfortable with putting things off until tomorrow. Before you know it tomorrow turns into months of excuses.

Testimonials are your receipts to prove that you are as great as you say you are. Testimonials back up your work, experience, and credentials. You can brand yourself as the best business coach to help creatives monetize their blog, but if you don’t have any receipts some people may be hesitant to book you.
When you want to try a new restaurant or a new product you most likely will read reviews before you invest your hard earned money. Well entrepreneurs do the same thing.

Brainstorm, Plan, Schedule, Execute, and Track
This is one of the biggest keys that you MUST takeaway! Brainstorming, planning, scheduling, executing and tracking the progress of your goals should be the steps you take in everything that you do. Most people don’t accomplish the goals they envision because they haven’t planned properly, their goals are not intentional, they haven’t created an attainable action plan, or they don’t track their progress. For some people, they aren’t able to reach next level success because they have no idea where to start. Well, success takes action.
I’ve shared the process I use when setting and executing my personal goals and business goals including email list goals, revenue goals, content goals, pitches and more. I have reached next level success with this exact strategy and you will too. This is the plan I use that helped me achieve every goal that I set out last year.
