THE SECRET TO GROWING YOUR CONSCIOUS BUSINESS - https://markandshannonlive.com

The Secret to Growing Your Conscious Business, Month after Month

The Secret to Growing Your Conscious Business, Month after Month

 

What would happen if you knew that without a doubt you were filled to the brim with high paying clients who adore you?

Exactly:

We didn’t think it was possible either.

Which is why you’re going to love this. Especially the part where we discovered this secret from a wild yoga guru – you’d love his beard).

Here’s the back story.

Mark here, and last week Shannon told you the HOT story how Big Impact began. And how she was able to land her first clients through marketing her essence.

Today, you’re going to get the missing piece to that story.

After all – landing a few clients is fantastic…but what do you do the next month? And the month after that?

 

This is absolutely something we discovered the HARD WAY.

 

We were both able to land some clients this month and some clients another month – but it never felt like smooth.

It felt random with peaks and valleys instead of a holistic entity.

You know what I’m saying, right? Where you’re doing everything right – but it’s in pieces. Almost broken.

And we felt it. Because every month was ‘friggin hard piecing this all together.

One client, another client – and we had to hustle.

We didn’t want to hustle anymore.

We just wanted to inspire people with our message and with our essence.

We were tired of ‘hustle’…RIGHT?!

So then, we went to a new Yoga guru a friend of ours recommended.

Our friend said to ‘Be careful – this guy is the real deal, beard and all’.

 

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit freaked.

 

What did she mean ‘real deal’? He was a master of Yoga – end of story. What’s the big deal?

So we arrived at his studio a bit earlier, put down our mats, got our water ready and settled in.

And then…he came in and we both felt his presence immediately.

We felt him so much we almost couldn’t move. It was like he drugged us with the essence of his soul. No, it wasn’t the beard…

Maybe another time I’ll tell you more about the actual session and how much I learned from him, in just about every area of life.

For now – it’s what he did at the end that…

 

Shocked us.

 

At the very end of the session, he said the following.

“To join our Yoga studio, you must start for 6 months. That is how this will change you. There are no short-cuts. Please join, we’d love for you to be with us and be part of our family. We’re all changing our lives – and slowly, changing the world. You can sign up right now”

Can you guess what we chose? Did we haggle on price? Did we ask for a shorter term?

Nope. We signed up for 6 whole months.

That’s how to do it my friend. Don’t offer quick bits for an hour here, an hour there or a short-term package. It will keep you ‘hustling’ – and hustling sucks.

Remember, he absolutely ‘marketed’ with his essence – but of course it was deeper than that. His marketing was his essence – and no one questioned it.

He gave us the sense of his transformation and made a powerful offer. 6 months.

So what do you say, will you start making offers for 6 months at a time?

Are you feeling a need for some guidance and support with it?

 

If you do, then I’d like to offer you the best support in the world:

 

A Complimentary Speaker Breakthrough Session to help you offer and land 6 month packages like clockwork. This way, you’ll stop hustling, start living again and feel the bigger impact you’re making in this world.  Just email support@bigimpactlive.com to secure your spot.

We do not have a lot of openings – so if you want one, send your email right now.

Hold on a sec….do you see what’s missing?

It’s one thing to make an offer for 6 months at a time – but how do you charge that much?

How do you offer something for the price you want and deserve?

That’s exactly what I’m going to reveal to you next week – and your ass will be on fire from it.

 

In the meantime, please comment below:

Mark’s Secret To Attract the Most Raving Fans, Immediately

Mark’s Secret To Attract the Most Raving Fans, Immediately

 

Ok, now last week I shared with you my personal story how I got started. That despite helping everyone else – I had a hard time helping myself.

Until my date with Mark. He told me two things that changed my life.

The first was saying how I could start small and do this myself.

But then, he told me something else.

The second thing he told me helped me land my first two new clients.

It’s time to reveal Mark’s genius… here it is.

Remember, the scene is that we’re snuggling up over a glass of wine (or two 😉
and he tells me:

“Why don’t you just put on your own event?”

He then tells me how it’s fine to start with even 5 people.

Now of course that was HOT… but how do I enroll?

How do I inspire people showing up from out of nowhere to pay me thousands of dollars to share my message?

Well I didn’t ask those questions.

Because Mark told me this sentence that changed everything.

Not sure if you know, but Mark has worked with some of the biggest brands in the world. Marriott International, Porsche and loads of others. So when Mark talks Marketing – he KNOWS his sh*t.

 

Here’s what he told me:

 

“Be your full, sexy self and people will sign up… trust me.”

I asked him to explain and here’s what he told me.

“Feel your unique SELF and express it fully. When people see you expressed like that, they’re drawn to you in an almost subconscious way to someone who’s LEADING because they’re BEING their FULL SELF. Shannon, when you show yourself like that – you’ll be an irresistible sexy queen. You’ll sign people up and they’ll become your raving fans, no question.”

That’s how I enrolled two new clients out of nowhere.

Be sexy, be authentic and most of all… be YOU – that’s what people want and are drawn to.

That’s the secret element to turning strangers into raving clients and fans.

So let me ask you: do you need support stepping into who you’re called to be?

Do you need some guidance being authentic in your marketing?

If you do, then I’d like to offer you something you’re going to love:

A Complimentary Speaker Breakthrough Session to help you attract a flood of high paying clients.  Just email support@bigimpactlive.com to secure your spot.

Since we opened these calls up last week we’ve been getting lots of requests. So please email us right now while we still have openings, coolio?

There’s a minor problem though:

How do you REALLY go from a few clients to a FLOOD of consistent, high paying clients who gratefully pay you well for your services?  How do you consistently enroll clients, month after month?

It’s one thing to ‘get started’ – and it’s another to consistently grow, month after month so you’re helping people and making real money.

How do you do that?

That’s coming up for you in next week’s Big Impact Blog post.

In the meantime, how do you bring authenticity into your marketing?  Let us know by commenting below!

When fear stops you…

When fear stops you…

 

I felt naked and everyone was just staring at me.

Could I really show myself like that, on stage and in front of all those people? Would anyone trust me? I knew this wouldn’t work out – I shouldn’t have agreed to Mark’s idea…

Shannon here… that’s what I was thinking before I took the plunge – and it felt like I was about to die.

But it was now or never:

Either I listened to my deeper yearning to step fully into my calling- or go back and work for my many bosses, feeling like a small huge part of me was dying.

 

Before I Took The Plunge, I Didn’t Think Success Was Possible for Me – Only for ‘Everyone Else’

 

 

You see, for years I was planning everyone’s live events. I did everything to make sure their events were a massive success. I worked my ass off… and helped them make 100’s of 1000’s of dollars.  I justified it and told myself, “I’m paying my dues.”

I stayed up way past midnight, every night of an event. I woke up at 5 am and ran on adrenaline all day long.

3 gigs like that paid my bills, barely.

Because these gigs came in waves. Some months 5, some….0. For a while I was going strong with 3 gigs a month and felt like it was all going to be fine.

I was helping other Conscious Entrepreneurs spread their message, impact the lives of thousands of people and make the world a better place.

And I saw the money they made. I saw how these events I produced for them earned them High Six Figures in 1 weekend.

So how did I feel?

Like I wasn’t good enough.

I felt like something was wrong. I mean, how was I working my ass off, making everyone else happy (and profitable) but myself. I was happy for them – but I knew I had a deeper purpose.

I ALSO had a deep message to share.

I ALSO could light up a room.

I ALSO could make money.

But that’s where I stopped – I didn’t think I could do it.

I knew I could make it happen for others.

But could I do it? No, I struggled to believe in MYSELF.

I mean, I didn’t have an email list of 20,000 people. I didn’t have an email list of 80!

Yes, I had energy and a message – but so did everyone else I met.

 

But Then I Met Mark… And Everything Changed!

 

It was around this time that I started dating Mark. At one point we met for a glass of wine and I told him how I was feeling.

And then, he said this one sentence that changed everything:

“Why don’t you just put on your own event?”

Now, it’s not that I didn’t think of that before. It’s just that I didn’t have anyone who would come!

And then he said:

“Do it, even if no one comes….but you know they will, even if it’s 5 people. You just have to take the first step.”

So…I listened to Mark. But I knew I was really listening to myself – he was guiding me there.

You know what it’s like to be trying this all on your own. It’s impossible because we simply stand in our own way.

All I needed was a little support – and Mark was like an angel who came at the perfect time.

So here’s what I did.

I hosted a (very) small Meetup and 8 people showed up.

But to me – it felt like a room of 80,000 people because of what this meant.

This meant that I was really starting.

Because I was – I was starting.

And even though I stood there feeling naked and vulnerable and doubtful and afraid…

I took the plunge and gave my presentation.

2 people took me up on my offer at the end…. and I turned that into $10,000!

If it was 2 or 2 million – it felt the same:

LIKE HEAVEN!

There’s nothing like it. The feeling of doing what I love, of sharing my message, of growing, of making an impact, of being ME.

Hot and Authentic Shannon.

And you know what? It really was just the beginning.

Because those 8 people turned into 20. And 20 to 50. And 50 to 80.

At our last Big Impact Live we had close to 200 people.  We’ve generated over 7 Figures in the last 20 months of business.

Yes, you saw me just shed a tear – because I didn’t think I could do it.

But all I needed was someone to BELIEVE in me.

And all you need is someone to believe in you & help you a little. To guide you a little. To just help you get started.

Which is what I’d like to offer you right now – some personal support.

If you need some guidance to help getting started – email support@bigimpactlive.com right now for a Complimentary “Speaker Breakthrough Session’ (valued at $495).

Trust me – all you need to get from where you are to where you want to be is this phone call. It’s the answer you’ve been praying for.

It’s what I needed when Mark and I met – and it changed everything. And if you’re a client with us already, prepare any questions you have for our next Big Impact Support Call (you know who you are).

Here’s the thing:

Mark actually told me one more thing.

The first thing he told me helped me get started. The second thing he told me?

That helped me get the 2 new clients.

And that’s what I’m going to share with you next week.

What do you think Mark told me next?

Is ‘Analysis Paralysis’ a big challenge for you?

 

Mark here and this is a BIGGIE that I know you struggle with. At all of our events people come up to me and ask, “How on earth do I overcome ‘Analysis Paralysis’? I have too many options and I just can’t make a decision!”

I’m here today to give you a huge breakthrough to end ‘Analysis Paralysis’ forever. So please make sure to use this, ok? This is the process how the most successful leaders on earth overcame ‘over-thinking’ their options, which is why I’m sharing it with you. Because it works and I don’t want you to suffer anymore from ‘Analysis Paralysis’.

So here is EXACTLY how to overcome it, defeat it and say goodbye to overthinking forever:
To relinquish the pain of analysis, take immediate action

When Marianne Williamson started her work, she didn’t think about all the things that could or could not go wrong or other directions she could have gone. She just took inspired action. The more actions you take, the more clarity, feedback and success you’ll gain. As long as you’re still… no impact can happen.

Did this post inspire you to take action regardless of the outcome? Let us know why or why not in the comments below, we’d love to hear YOU!
