Behind the scenes: Schedule of a spectacular day!

BEHIND THE SCENES: SCHEDULE OF A SPECTACULAR DAY!

I’ve had such a powerful day! I have one more thing to do on my to do list to really knock today out of the park. But before I do that, I wanted to come and lay some track for anyone reading.

Today is the type of day to document, because, it already comes on the heels of a powerful week. Monday, I was able to deliver an amazing day of coaching service at a local non profit after school program. Tuesday I was teaching my graduate-level Teaching Strategies course, and Wednesday I was teaching my graduate-level Teaching Seminar course. Each time getting positive feedback back from my students. I’m always surprised when students praise my teaching practice.

Teaching practice and coaching practice is hard! Shit! I’m finding in my entrepreneurship and research that teaching and coaching is about constantly evolving, and challenging yourself. It’s about communication. Its about the transfer of knowledge, and the equipping of tools.

That’s hard, but we here are EDGE-ucational Media Company, LLC believe it to be possible to strategically equip yourself with tools and lived experiences, in an effort to craft the leadership journey you want to live here on Earth. We believe that is possible and curatable in the living moment. We believe you the reader in this moment holds the power to determine your programming and ultimately where your path will lead, and the impact you will have.

Getting back on topic – as a company we had one of the strongest days of the year today. And we’re still conquering items on the to do even down to this post. the to do list we start the day with is the guide for what can be a powerful day of creation, or a wasteful day of consumption.

Today’s to do list – written during our morning journal time:

Figuring Out Your Business Fuel

FIGURING OUT YOUR BUSINESS FUEL

A product, that customers return to you for reliably. You’re considered area of expertise. This product creates revenue and income for you. This fuel can be used to power product/value creation, and other auxiliary processes.

For me, a piece of business fuel is training. Personal training is a piece of the fuel I use to power my operations. What stands out to me is that this was externally identified at first. Friends ALWAYS would ask me about fitness advice, and to train them. For year I was reluctant. Thankfully I finally allowed it to come to my awareness. And now I have cultivated the perceived value and fuel into real value and fuel. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, or where I’m going. I have people who see/know me and ask me to provide them with true value.

Free Business Tool: value ladder

Free Business Tool: Value Ladder

Get clear on the products you offer, how the correlate to one another, and how to price them to encourage your followers to buy multiple times.

This post is inspired by Dot Com Secrets by Russell Brunson and contains a modified tool from the authors work.

Tired of struggling to get your product line in order?

Try using the Value Ladder to get a grasp on where your products lie in correlation to one another.

This concept was introduced to me by Russell Brunson, author of Dot Com Secrets. This diagram/tool allows entrepreneurs like you visualize all of the ways you provide value to your audience. This tool implies and requires that your offerings come in a sequence. Sequence meaning there is an inherent order that you are presenting to the client. Businesses are encouraged to grab their audience attention and wet their pallets with a low risk, valuable offering. Once here, it is easier for businesses to move their customers up to higher end products that generally carry a higher price tag.

Drafting a value ladder will help you identify if and where you can diversity or concentrate your offerings for your audience. This is because the entrepreneur is able to see the entire product landscape from free offerings (A) – down to your most luxurious products (Z).

Why this tool works!

Personally, for me it was transformative to take my products and product ideas from my head down onto a workable and meaningful framework that has real business application and impacts on prospects and personal ideas around implementation. Also supports the real notion that social media activity is not business, in and of itself. It is merely the publicizing and media marketing of your business dealing and offerings.

This is an early draft of the value ladders for my fitness and coaching businesses.

Follow the jump to see how to develop your own Value Ladder.

Video: Journal with Me – A Productivity Hack

Video: Journal with Me – A productivity hack

Have you heard of study with me videos?

I’m addicted to them now. I found them through music artist, turned mother and author – Amerie. I’ve followed her youtube channel mostly focused on books for about 2 years now. She recently posted a 40 minute writing video:

As a writer myself, I’ve personally struggled to be productive, find the motivation, and most importantly community for creative and productive works. Hopefully you find these videos and productivity companions for you. Just as they have been for me.

Apparently this phenomenon comes from Asian cultures where you can find even more videos under the gongbank keyword.

Feel free to mute me. Or listen along to my craziness.
