559: [success] Saying No, So You Can Say Yes with Consultant Dr. Charlotte Huntley
How do you go from juggling multiple offers to focusing on what’s most profitable and aligned in your business?  The truth is, many business owners experiment with different revenue streams, such as online courses, digital products, group coaching offers, and done-for-you services. But most entrepreneurs quickly find that their energy is spread too thin. And, when your offers are scattered, your revenue is scattered too. I have seen this pattern with many of my clients, including Dr. Charlotte Huntley who is an Epidemiologist, Public Health Entrepreneur, Consultant, and CEO.  Charlotte works to bridge the gap between public health and entrepreneurship by supporting public health entrepreneurs and health-focused industry leaders. She is also the host of the Public Health Epidemiology Conversations Podcast. She took the leap from employee to full-time business owner right before the pandemic began, after landing a large consulting project. For Charlotte, the timing brought both opportunity and an avalanche.  Since Epidemiologists collect and analyze data to investigate health issues, including new viruses, Charlotte was immediately inundated with requests from people all over the world. She knew she needed guidance, support, and a community to establish and grow her business.  That’s when she discovered $ix Figures Lab, our group coaching program where we help our clients position themselves in the marketplace, so they are attracting their highest level work and serving their dream clients.  Join me for today’s episode with Dr. Charlotte Huntley as she shares how we transformed her very niche business from pieced together and overwhelming, to streamlined and profitable.    💰 Apply now to join the waitlist for $ix Figures Lab 🌟 Connect with Natalie on LinkedIn 🔗 Get all the links from this episode This episode was first published at BizChix.com/559. Subscribe to our sister podcast, Stacking Your Team, on your podcast app or at BizChix.com/category/team.

555: How to 80/20 Your Business for More Profit
Do you know exactly what to focus on every day to grow your business? Not knowing which actions will actually move the needle in your business is one of the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs today.  After all, there are thousands of strategies and tactics you could try. But which one is the best for YOU? Too often, I see business owners trying to do all of the things in their business. And that is a recipe not only for burnout, but also for a slow growing business. In today's episode, I want to re-introduce you to the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 Rule, which states that 80 percent of your results come from 20 percent of your efforts.  You have probably heard of this principle in relation to productivity and time management. But the 80/20 principle applies across almost anything that has a cause and effect, or inputs and outputs.   💰 Apply now to join the waitlist for $ix Figures Lab 🌟 Connect with Natalie on LinkedIn 🔗 Get all the links from this episode   This episode was first published at BizChix.com/555. Subscribe to our sister podcast, Stacking Your Team, on your podcast app or at BizChix.com/category/team.

554: How to Get Out of Business Overwhelm
Are you running your business from a state of overwhelm?  If so, you will struggle to achieve your goals.  How do I know? Because when you are in a state of overwhelm, you cannot see, plan, or act from a place of clarity.  Overwhelm happens you have too many requirements on your time and energy. You feel like you are drowning in your to-do list. And your capacity is maxed out.  As a CEO, you need a clear mind, so you can think strategically and envision what you want from your business and personal life. But that’s not possible when you’re operating in a constant state of overwhelm.  Please know you are not alone and don’t wait to get out of overwhelm to ask for help. Most of our clients in Six Figures Lab arrived in overwhelm and it is one of my favorite things to help small business owners get out of. In today’s episode, I reveal why business owners at all levels find themselves overwhelmed, how to ask for help, and how to identify what you can release in your business and life to free up your energy.    💰 Apply now to join $ix Figures Lab for a January 2023 start 🌟 Connect with Natalie on LinkedIn 🔗 Get all the links from this episode   This episode was first published at BizChix.com/554. Subscribe to our sister podcast, Stacking Your Team, on your podcast app or at BizChix.com/category/team.

550: Prioritize Conversations Over Content
What if one simple shift in your priorities could decrease your workload and increase your revenue?  The simple shift is prioritizing conversations over content.  This might surprise you because as entrepreneurs, we are told to produce tons of free content in multiple forms for multiple platforms. Frankly, churning out content for your business can be exhausting.   But the real problem is not the amount of time and energy it takes. The real problem is the lost opportunity to have real conversations.  Just one conversation is much more likely to result in referrals, clients, and revenue than publishing one hundred pieces of content.   In today’s episode, Elizabeth Cook, who is the accountability coach in $ix Figures Lab, and I will talk about the content-heavy business model, why it may not work for your business, and why posting content should not be your go-to strategy for getting clients.   💰 Apply now to join $ix Figures Lab for a January 2023 start 🌟 Connect with Natalie on LinkedIn 🔗 Get all the links from this episode   This episode was first published at BizChix.com/550. Subscribe to our sister podcast, Stacking Your Team, on your podcast app or at BizChix.com/category/team.
