Getting as Many Registrations as Possible Isn't What Matters

In this episode, I'll highlight what you probably think about when you're reflecting on the success of your event and uncover what is truly important.

This week, instead of giving you a strategy, I've got a bit of a different topic for you to encourage you to shift the way you think about hosting your summit and the goals you have around it. 

It's so easy to go into planning your summit with the mindset of how many registrations you can get or how much money you can make.

So, let’s start with the backstory... I run a lot of Facebook ads, and I get a lot of angry comments from people who are mad that I'm running ads when I teach that summits work so well. It drives them nuts!

I finally started...

This week, our guest Chelsea walks us through what a luxurious launch looks like, the mistakes we make, and how to create your own version of a dreamy launch.

Have you ever noticed that it seems totally normal in the online business space for launches to leave you tired and on the brink of burnout?

I'll be honest, it's not rare for me to end up sick in the middle of my launches... and I know there's a reason for that!

But I also know that launches don't have to be like this. The truth is, launches can be luxurious and totally free from...

You know you need Summit In A Box, but you want to try it on your own first. Here's why I want you to reconsider, and not for the reasons you might think!

I’ve thought about doing an episode on this topic many times, but I've always shied away from it because I want to come across as helpful and as someone who delivers a ton of value.

So I’m guessing you can already see why an...
