I've been talking to you forever about social media and implementation – my new message to you is about how to build a business that is more than just a way for you to make a living (basically a job without benefits) and show you how to build a business that has roots – and leaves a legacy. I want you to build a business that gives you back your investment of time and money – that you can sell or leave to you children.
And… recently, it has been very clear to me that I need to listen to my own message. (Ever notice how people teach what they need help with…)
So, in order for Decisive Minds to grow and serve more people, I'm beginning the process of stepping out of the middle of operations (where most important information is in my head) to getting to the place where I can have a 50,000 foot view and really work on creating a business with staying power. I have a sneaking feeling that this is going to be a long journey – and I would like to invite you to come along with me as Decisive Minds changes. I'll share what I learn along the way – to help you create YOUR legacy.
So, step one is to expand my team. I am thrilled to announce that I've hired Debbie O'Grady and Lynn Ruby as Master Coaches for Decisive Minds. They will be mentoring my Profit Club members this year – as well as training future coaches. Getting help with the coaching will allow Decisive Minds to serve more of you – and I couldn't be more excited. Here's a bit more about Lynn and Debbie.
Lynn is an expert at easily explaining complicated technical and marketing strategies and systems in everyday, ordinary language so that implement for their business. rubymarketingsystems.com/
I also needed to get myself out of the day to day marketing activities of Decisive Minds so I can focus more on our overall message. I promoted my long time Online Business Manager – Meredith Eisenberg to the role of Marketing Director – where she will oversee the marketing team.
Guerrilla Marketing Coach, has been an Infusionsoft Certified Consultant and just generally a genius at putting all the online marketing pieces together. Before starting her online marketing business in 2007, she spent 15 years as a Public Information Officer in Washignton DC where we won several national awards for her PR campaigns. Meredith is also co-host of the Paycheck to Passion podcast – http://paychecktopassion.com
Awesome Michele – you are an inspiration! I’m in the middle of transitioning our website to WordPress – and a big motivator is to get ME out of the middle of web design and maintenance, where I’ve been stuck for about 8 years. I can’t wait to get to the other side and start doing more of what I love – cultivating relationships and connecting solo entrepreneurs with what they need!
Huge congrats on stepping out of the middle and making you and your team such valuable assets. Congrats on the ShePower Award too!
Laugh lots, Love more!
Congratulations on taking your own advice. It is never easy. I am excited to see how your business changes once you have a different view point of what is happening. Praying for your success.
