Ep061: How To Know If You're Ready To Invest with Lisa Yelland
1:20:53This episode is for you if you are... ✅ a buyer considering a big investment and don't know if you're ready or struggling with the money commitment, ✅ a seller constantly getting the 'I don't have the money' objection. On this episode, I welcome the incredible Lisa Yelland, our Altitude Sales & Confidence Coach. With a 30-year background in sales and a love of all things sales, she was the perfect person to invite on to chat about what influences people to buy and what hinders people from getting the support they want (and know they need). In the episode, we cover the 3 main considerations that either help or hinder you when making an investment decision, including... ✅ Your mindset, beliefs and clarity of vision. If you struggle to believe the results you want are possible, or you struggle to see - in detail - what you want to achieve, you're going to struggle to invest in something that gives you the best chance of getting it. ✅ Your confidence that the offer is the right one for you. If you don't trust the salesperson or don't love their offer - and understand the results you could achieve - you're going to struggle to invest. ✅ The money. Money is a massive consideration when it comes to a purchasing decision, however, this often doesn't tell us the whole story. It has been shown that up to 90%-95% of objections around money, aren't actually about the money. When you have the confidence to dive deeper - as a buyer or a seller - they often turn out to be about one of the first 2 points above. As a buyer, you therefore need to be open to understanding what lies deeper than the price and as a seller, you need to understand you have a responsibility to help potential clients understand what's really going on in order to find a way to get them the support they need. And as mentioned in the episode, if you would love to join the conversation, you will find us in our Facebook Group 'More to Me...' at https://www.facebook.com/groups/moretomethanmum/.

Ep060: Marketing and How To Stand Out From The Crowd
30:15The biggest challenge we have running an online business in 2023 is standing out from the crowd. 2023 means few buyers, more saturated markets and people buying with more intention, so to succeed in 2023 we need to stand out, create a strong USP and level-up the value we give. Listen to the episode to find out how to avoid panic messaging and turning off your audience so you can stand out in your market and set yourself as the authority in your industry... - Think about how to bring your strengths and values to what you do. - Understand what problem you solve for people? What value can you add? - How do you solve the problem BEST, rather than in the cheapest way? - How will you design, deliver and price what you're offering in the best way for your buyers AND for you so you can make the best results happen in a time-efficient way for you? - How you level-up your mindset so you're going into every conversation ready for the yes.

Ep058: Pricing - Low Ticket vs High Ticket and Common Pricing Mistakes
29:22In today's episode, I'll be covering the common mistakes I see female entrepreneurs making all the time regarding how they price and sell their offers. I cover the common mistakes including... ✅ Pricing based on time - e.g. day rate / hourly rates and figuring out your price based on time (service) or based on cost/profit (product) ✅ Focusing on selling the 'thing' rather than solving the problem or creating the result - and creating an offer which helps the most 'affordably' or 'quickly' rather than BEST! ✅ The belief that low ticket is easier to sell, when the stats tell us differently - people are purchasing with more INTENTION than ever before, so **value** will win over **price** every single time. ✅ Focusing on HOW to sell what you have, rather than WHAT it is you're actually selling. So if you feel like you’re struggling to price your thing, or feeling icky about putting your prices up even though your aim is to design your time out of your business, then this is the episode for you.

Ep053: How My Million Pound Business Nearly Ruined My Life with Emma Hine
34:04In todays episode, I chat with the amazing Emma Hine, a Business Strategist who got told at school she would never make anything of herself. The story she told herself because of this one comment led her through a long business journey to launch and build a million-pound e-commerce business which nearly ruined her life. In the episode, she opens up about why her mindset and her feeling around being 'successful' meant she eventually had to take time away and rebuild her business - and her life - from scratch to finally build a business she enjoyed. She chats about how the money actually meant very little in terms of her version of success - and even though she had the money she still felt like a failure. She then goes on to tell us how she turned it all around to create her new business - and how she's set it up to give her the life she REALLY wanted.
