The School of Self-Mastery: Business, Money, Life

The School of Self-Mastery podcast is all about business, money and life. I talk with guests who have created a RICH life for themselves, not because they’re bathing in money, (although they may be doing that too) but because they’ve defined and created success on their own terms, through their own personal successful habits. Habits are the root of simplifying your success I also appear solo two days a week to dive deeper into self-mastery topics and give actionable takeaways you can start applying today.

If Tibetan philosophies of non-attachment made passionate love to high-level business acumen with a hefty dash of bodymind connection, and raised their resultant love child on a steady diet of craft beer, traditional foods, mountain living, yoga, and snow skiing you'd have, Makenna Johnston. Fondly known as MakJo.

MakJo is a passionate coach & thought leader for visionary leaders-entrepreneurs, creatives, and corporate rabblerousers. She has over a decade of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, coaches, organizations, artists, and writers to create strategic visions and missions that kick ass and take names.

When we think of sales funnels, we often think that all they're good for is automating your business and making you more money. 

But the truth is, sales funnels are the best way to stay relevant and give your audience logical next step solutions to their problems, which in turn will help them get better results. 

And isn't that what we all want? 

So, instead of avoiding this concept because you don't care about automating or the thought of it feels salesy, I want you to listen to this episode and hear why you're doing your audience a disservice by NOT running them through a logical and relevant funnel.

Not all ideal clients are built the same, and the typical ideal client avatar just doesn't make sense. A lot of your ideal clients won't look, act or dress the same, but it doesn't really matter if they have the same pain points, aspirations, challenges, etc. and that's where you come in. 

Your ideal clients aren't all going to be ready to work with you when you're ready to offer them something. There's a better way to approach your ideal clients, lead them through a process that helps get them better results and speaks to their needs at this specific moment in your relationship with them.

Yes, you're in a relationship with every single person in your audience. And all of those relationships are at different phases...are you nurturing them each in the way it needs to be nurtured to lead to the next step?

In this episode, I'll share the 3 dating phases of ideal clients so that you can make sure you're not moving too fast, too slow or proposing on the first date.

I recorded this story based on a question someone in my FREE FB community shared, but I'm sure many of you will find it beneficial and interesting.

This is the story of how my VP found out about my side business and how I felt during that time, how I decided to be super open & visible with my business while still working, and the things I'd do differently if I could go back in time!
