How to Grow an Audience Without Becoming A Target

[Creative Freedom S7E6]

A few years back, while attending an abundance workshop, I encountered one of the scariest moments of my life! A particular exercise gave me, a business coach, a very “deer in the headlights'' moment but also, a breakthrough that changed the way I work with clients. Had my coach not taken just a few extra moments out of her agenda to help me with this roadblock, I might still struggle with the idea of holding onto something so much. I might have never fully launched the Incubator, which has helped our clients make millions of dollars in the 6 years we’ve been running it. Many of those folks started at zero, so that’s real revenue. Real lives changed that might not have happened if I hadn’t faced down that fear.

What’s the lesson? An Environment of Empowerment can help you overcome your fears.

As I mentioned in our last episode, even Betty White had her haters. Making yourself a victim is something that you have influence over and I am here to help! It starts by not being an a-hole, creating an environment of empowerment for yourself, and fostering a sense of belonging with your existing audience, which in turn changes your audience into your Raving Fans.
