Before I started marketing my personal brand - that is my face, image and likeness on social media - I was scared as heck!
You better betchya that I used logos and stock photos cause I was scared about putting myself out there when I just got started.

"I don't need a personal brand," they say.
"It's not about me," they say.
If you want to call in more clients, cash and sell more so you can serve more people, you need to get over yourself!
It's time you "Know Thyself." (Socrates)

Are you marketing to get clients now or later?
In my mastermind group, a client asked how she can enroll a prospect in the next 2 weeks or less.
I took a look at her current marketing strategy and realized that a lot of her current business activities included strategies that would take 3 - 6 months to see results.
She was shocked when I pointed this out because she needed cash fast!
Internet Marketing and advertising is a great way to generate a stream of clients on demand. I experience it in my own business and the business of those I coach, however, you need to ensure you have all the systems and business structures in place to make that happen.

To get clients now, implement...
