If I could shout one thing from the rooftop it would be this: YOU CAN GET PAID TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE!!!
There, sorry I shouted but it had to be done (wink). I know it might sound too good to be true but that's just your negative mind chatter (Inner-Bully) rearing her ugly head. There are hundreds of thousands of women running business they love so why not you?
I started my first business at 8 years old when I used to make tea and coffee for my parents (I charged 10p a cup). Ha!
I then started my first 'real' business when I was 30 because I was sick and tired of being sick and tired in a job that drained the life and soul out of me. I won't share my story now (you can read it here) but it involved hospital and a wheelchair and then redundancy (brutal, right!?) but they were actually the best things that ever happened to me because they made me WAKE UP. I took the leap and started my own business and I haven't looked back. I now help other women to set up and build businesses that they not only LOVE but that pay the bills (and then some).
In this section, you'll find resources to help you with the business structures essential to actually making MONEY.

FREEBIES & EMAIL LISTS: The why, what and how
How much content do you give away for FREE?
If you're anything like I used to be, you may be terrified that you'll end up giving all your 'secret sauce' away and potential clients won't need to bother hiring you?
Yep. I held back for years too. But it doesn't work like that...
People buy from those they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST. People rarely buy 'cold' so don't waste your money advertising a paid service or product. Advertise your freebie and collect the emails of potential ideal clients.
You need to be getting in front of your ideal clients regularly so they get to know and like you. The also need to trust that you know your stuff before they hand over their money. The best way to do this to give them quality information for free.
Then you turn them into raving fans. What do raving fans want? To find out how to work with you. They want to PAY you.
I recorded a video in my Facebook Group all about why you need to build your email list and use a freebie (a.k.a. opt-in or lead magnet). I talk through what the purpose of your freebie could be:
And give you examples of each and help you generate ideas for your freebie.
