My 5 Biggest Take Homes’ From Shaa Wasmund’s Bootcamp

 

I attended Shaa’s event last week, the energy in the room was really great, she clearly has a loyal following and the whole experience was really motivational.

If you’re running a service business then these tips should be right up your street…although most entrepreneurs will find value in these messages.

 

1. It takes hardwork to build a successful business, there is no get rich quick formula.

This is one of my fundamental beliefs but you just can’t hear it too much! There is no such thing as ‘get rich quick’ you have to put in the hours.

 

2. Don’t settle for trading your time for money- if you want freedom you need a scalable business model with recurring revenues.

When you start out in the service sector the easiest, and quickest, way to make money is through one to one but it’s just not scalable.

This is probably the point that I have been struggled with the most because creating and marketing digital training has always been seen as a distraction from generating revenue.

 

3. Have, stick to and focus on your ‘financial freedom figure’; the figure which would give you the freedom or lifestyle that you are aspiring to.

This is basic goal setting, I mean come on ladies do we not all have this worked out already?

My current goal is to reach £100k (per year) in 2018: the exact figure based on out goings, charitable giving, investing etc actually comes to £97k but I thought why not round it up and give myself a slightly bigger buffer or an extra holiday! This figure will give me the security and lifestyle I want for myself and my family. 

 

4. Growing an audience is key

There was a lot of conversation around Facebook, which is already a very popular name in this household, but it was clear how having an audience, whatever the platform, who is interested in your business area is a massive asset.

Within this audience you need to build yourself an expert reputation.

 

5. Make steps towards your business having 80% digital sales

These are downloads, access to content and basically any other digital materials which generate sales where you don’t have to be present for their usage: freeing you up to invest your time…

 

…to making more sales calls, do charitable work, spend more time with the family, watching Tom Hardy read a bedtime story…or thinking about going to the gym over a glass of wine….you get the picture 🙂
