Anna works one day a month to earn a week’s worth of profit

​Anna Aliza makes beautiful hair clips for kids. She has a thriving business.

For a while, she had a subscription box, where she sent out clips to her members every month.

But there’s a problem.

No matter how hard she works, her income will always be limited because she’s a maker.

And, there’s a limit to how much she can charge for her time. She’s never getting a raise.

That means that it’s almost impossible for her to make more money.

Anna Aliza joined me in Tribe last year. Her goal was to get recurring revenue without taking up hours of her time.

And that’s how Hair Clipology was born. It’s a Project of the Month strategy.

One day each month, Anna sends a package of raw materials to her members. She records a tutorial and uploads it to a gated area of her website.

The members get the perfect amount of materials they need, and they log in to watch the video to learn how to create their clips.

Anna spends one day a month serving her members and makes a week’s worth of profit.

She’s got a strategy to get paid for her time and her talent, and it’s a strategy she can scale!

How Julie can manage cash flow and grow her product line.

How Julie can manage cash flow and grow her product line.

In this episode of 15 Minute Feedback, I’m chatting with our Inner Circle member Julie Drake.

Julie owns www.mimigowns.com
Here’s how she describes her business:

“I sell fancy, comfy nightgowns to millennial women. We launched in June 2019 with 3 nightgown styles (all designed and manufactured by me). We also offer some robes/cardigans to go over the nightgowns that I purchased wholesale and resell on my website.”

Julie is feeling a little stuck even though she’s ready to take her business to the next level.

“Things have been going ok, but I need help figuring out what to do next. I feel like it’s time to start developing nightgown styles for the next collection, but we don’t yet have the cash to fund production of a new collection. Would love to discuss this with Susan and get some feedback!“

Once I got some more information, we found out that there are three big clues about Julie’s next steps. That’s the good news.

The bigger issue is that she needs to bring in more new product and she doesn’t have the cashflow to do it. It’s a common problem for us store owners, so we talked about:

  1. How she can raise some quick cash to get her started
  2. The event she can create next month to keep sales coming
  3. Two options for a long term growth strategy, so she can stop worrying about cash flow and spend more time on marketing her business

Watch below to get all the details:

Here’s how we set Edwin up to get consistent sales every month

A few months ago, Edwin and I recorded an episode of 15 minute feedback.

Edwin and his brother Joel, recently pivoted from selling coffee-themed apparel to actually selling their own branded coffee.

2019 has a been a wild ride, and when I asked Edwin how I could help, he said he would love to know how to get more consistent sales results.

The best way to get consistent results is to take consistent action on a few things that will result in sales.

Watch as we take a deep dive into Edwin’s numbers and come up with a three-step plan for him.

The one thing Edwin needs to do to get consistent sales is to keep on top of his important metrics.

I made him a Monday Metrics spreadsheet. You can get a copy here:

Feel like engagement is dead? Jenn did too.

Our Inner Circle Member Jenn was frustrated because:

  • She’s struggling to get engagement in a popular niche (she makes dog carriers)
  • She’s posting 2 times a day and feels lucky if she gets a couple of “likes” on the post.
  • And, she’s been trying to build her custom audience of people who have “viewed content” for 2 months, and progress is slow…

Sound familiar?

But here’s the thing:
