What is your Refund/Cancellation Policy?
You may cancel your membership before any payment is completed. Once payment is received, no refunds can be made for that membership period (either month or quarter). Membership can be cancelled directly in the “My Account” Section of the membership site.
I already have a bunch of business memberships, do I really need another one?
I'll be honest - you don't. But the fact that you are searching tells me that you probably haven't found what you need in the others. This membership is so unique. If you are ready to get your workflows and biz tools organized in a way that works for you, then this membership is right for you. I'm going to give you recommendations for what would work for you and your productivity/organizational styles, not just what I do. And then teach you how to use and implement it all.
What's the difference between BASIC and VIP memberships?
VIPs get extra perks and more time with me. They are eligible for coffee chats each quarter and two Get Stuff Done sessions each month.
When are the Get Stuff Done sessions?
There are two Get Stuff Done sessions each month for VIPs - one on the first Saturday from 10:00am-noon Pacific and the other on the third Wednesday from 6:00pm-8:00pm Pacific. Times may be adjusted based on member requests and my schedule, but I'll let the VIPs know before we change anything.
Do I need to wait until I have more clients before I join?
Absolutely not! In fact, building a good foundation while you only have a few clients is ideal so you are prepared when the inquiries start rolling in (and they will).
In fact, I made the mistake of not doing this. I thought I had plenty of time to figure everything out. And then I got 10 inquiries in one month. I wasn't prepared at all. I lost clients because I didn't have my inquiry process ironed out and couldn't send them a proposal right after the discovery call. The clients I did book received less than stellar client experiences because I didn't have a system for managing my projects and bookings, so I overbooked myself for 3 months in a row. Talk about a nightmare (and no sleep). Learn from my mistake and take the time to build your foundation early.
I just invested in a business coach or group program.
Great! This will go hand-in-hand with what you are doing with your coach. And learning from different experts on different topics is important. Remember in college when you had a different teacher for each class. You wouldn't expect an English professor to teach a Physics class, right? The same is true with business skills. I'm an expert in workflows & productivity, but not so much in other areas of business (like accounting or marketing).
- Each month you'll have access to live trainings and 1:1 assistance from me during the training. Plus live Q&As each month too.
- VIPs get an extra level of interaction by attending Get Stuff Done sessions twice per month and signing up for a coffee chat with me each quarter.
- In addition, all members receive priority in my inbox, so feel free to email me anytime.
I'm on a tight budget, but I know I need support.
I completely get that. And I had the same thinking when I first started my business. "I can't spend money until I start making money." But I want you to think about how much you can accomplish in just one training. How much time you can save my learning one new productivity skill. Now that you own your own business time literally equals money. So if one training can save you even 15 minutes, then it's already paid for itself.
Plus, the Basic Membership is cheaper than getting Starbucks once a week. ;) If someone had taught me these things earlier in my business I would have gladly given up one coffee a week, and earned
I'm too busy to do all of this.
If you think you are too busy, then you absolutely need this membership. The skills you learn in the the workshops and in the Get Stuff Done sessions will help you find more time in your day so you can stop saying "I'm busy" and start saying "I'm productive."
A few years ago, I noticed that whenever someone asked me how I was, I would reply with, "Busy, but good." So I decided to remove "busy" from my vocabulary. It. was. hard! But I found that when I stopped defining myself as "busy" I stopped feeling like I didn't have time to do everything I wanted to do. I didn't feel busy, I felt productive. A subtle shift, but it made all the difference.
How much time should I plan on spending on my membership?
On average, each event should last approximately:
- Workshops - 1.5 to 2 hours
- Q&A Sessions - 30 minutes
- Get Stuff Done Sessions - 2 hours, twice a month (4 hours total)
- Quarterly Coffee Chats - 30 minutes
So if you take advantage of everything you can, Basic membership should be about 2.5 hours per month, and VIP membership should be about 7 hours per month.
I think I need more support and accountability. Do you offer that?
I sure do! Check out The Empowered Boss Lab Academy! The Academy is a 3-month program to walk you through creating all of your systems, workflows, and automations to run a streamlined and organized business so you can focus on the creative things.
I also offer 1:1 coaching and consulting. Click the links at the bottom of this page to find out more or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
