An Interview with Tiffany Han

I’m really excited to share that Tiffany Han of 100 Rejection Letters will be joining the Coaching Blueprint digital marketing program on October 5th, 2015!

Listen to a short clip from our interview, above. In our full interview, included with the Coaching Blueprint digital marketing program, we talk about:

  • How she’s up-leveled her business from a one-on-one practice to group coaching, speaking events, a podcast, and more;
  • Marketing practices that might be common in the industry (but that aren’t actually effective because they burn bridges!);
  • How she manages her time running a business and raising her twin toddlers.

Are you reacting, or creating responsiveness?

Are you reacting, or creating responsiveness?

 

When you’re “reacting” in business, you’re thinking things like… “What’s going to make me money?” and “How can I get more followers?”

You might do what I did during my first year in business–spend the last $150 you had on your credit card on a meeting with a “business consultant” who mostly blew off our time together. She hadn’t even looked at my website, prior to our meeting.

Why did I plunk that money down? Because I was in a space of fear. I was reacting. I needed to know how to make money, and to do that, I thought you needed more followers, more subscribers, an ever-bigger platform.

On one hand, that’s true. You do need a platform.

The problem? The people like that “business consultant” are mostly interested in keeping you in a state of reaction. Whatever they say is the next best thing that you need? They’re hoping you’ll react by going, “Oh! That’ll be the magic pill that makes my business finally work!”

Creating Responsiveness

 
Creating responsiveness feels different. It feels different in your body, and in your business.

The primary question stops being, “What do I need to do, to make money?” and starts being, “Who do I want to be, that will lead to making money?”

When you’re asking who you want to be in your business, the products, services, and offerings that are best for the other people who also want to align with who you’re being, start to come forward. Then you’re out of “chasing followers” mode.

When you start creating, rather than reacting, your business has a chance to really take off.

Are you reacting, or creating responsiveness?

Do you really need a niche?

Tara Gentile is such a rock star. I enormously like and respect her, because she’s pragmatic and interested in how-to that goes far beyond a few strategic maneuvers.

In this video, we talk about niche and the real deal–do you actually need one?

 

 

After the video

Exercise: Take a look at just one of your sales pages. Is it clearly defined for a specific person, or a specific person with a specific set of values and beliefs?

In The Coaching Blueprint I go beyond the discussion of niche and demographics and devote an entire chapter to exploring the concept of psychographics–the value indicators that people live by.

Interview: Tanya Geisler

Interview: Tanya Geisler

Are you still searching for the “silver bullet” that tells you how to run your business?

It’s seductive to think that if you just follow how someone else is doing it, you’re going to have the same kind of success, isn’t it?

Just follow their program, emulate their style, execute the to-do lists that they tell you to execute.

The Coaching Blueprint is the antithesis of that–you can’t do it anyone else’s way. You can only do it your way.

And along the way? You can get the insights of more than 12 other amazing coaches who want to share with you what they stumbled over and how they struggled, so that you can circumvent some of those challenges as you create your practice, your way.

 

After the video
I paired some talk with money and charging alongside the conversation about “doing it your way” on purpose–because you’re invited to start there.

  • Where are the ugly comparisons in your coaching practice/business?
  • Where does money signify worth in your coaching practice/business?
  • Where do you look at what someone else makes (financially) and think that if you don’t make the same, you’re not “doing it right”?

Don’t avoid these questions!

If you’re not doing money work, you’re shooting your business in the foot–and the amazing thing is that the money work does not go away with time. It just continues to evolve and change as you grow what you do.
