Creating Space + Owning My Offers in 2023

Rather than focus on numbers & launches, hear how I'll create space and own my offers in 2023 by letting go of what's not serving me and stepping into what is.

Instead of doing my typical annual goal setting that involves choosing launch dates, making revenue projections, and dreaming up all the new things I’m going to do in my business, I took a different approach this year.

It actually feels like I was forced to take a different approach because I’d filled my plate so full in December that I wasn’t able to slow down and make the...

How Virtual Summits Evolved in 2022 and What It Means For Your Next Event

No strategy works exactly the same way forever, and the same applies to virtual summits. Today I share the biggest ways I've seen virtual summits evolve in 2022.

If there’s one thing I can say for certain about 2022, it’s that this year was full of transitions. So many things changed in terms of what’s working and not working in online business this year, and I know we’re not the only ones who have been experimenting and evolving as the industry changes.

As much as I’d love to say that summits are immune to the shifts...

"Free Summits Attract Low-Quality Leads and Freebie Seekers"

In this sass-filled episode, I'm breaking down why you'll hear some influencers make the claim that

Have you heard the claim that free virtual summits attract "low-quality leads" or "freebie seekers"? Or maybe you've even believed it yourself?

First of all, this is straight-up just a rude thing to say about people interested in what you’re doing. By saying this, it classifies anyone who signs up for something free as a “low quality” person to have in your audience and,...

From Virtual Summit Skeptic to Crushing Every Single Goal with Dominique Falla

Despite Dominique's uncertainty around her summit's potential, she stayed the course, followed our summit-hosting system, and crushed every single goal she set.

Not convinced that a virtual summit will work for your business? My guest on the podcast this week wasn’t either when she decided to host her first summit.

After hosting several popular (but not exactly the most profitable) in-person conferences, she was skeptical that hosting a summit would pay off or work for her audience. She went in with low expectations, and even a little...

What's the Difference Between a Free Summit and Paid Conference?

What's the difference between a free summit and paid conference? I'll break down the differences piece by piece and talk about where each strategy fits in!

B2C Virtual Summits: A Values-Driven Summit for a Budget-Conscious Audience with Bryson Tarbet

My guest this week worked through questions around how his audience would receive a virtual summit and hosted a values-driven event that made a lasting impact.

No matter what audience your business serves, you've probably run into questions around whether or not a summit is a good idea or would work for your specific niche.

Will they like what I created? Will they be mad that I'm trying to make money while I help them? Will they buy my all-access pass?

For more budget-conscious audiences, these questions can be enough to make you wonder whether a...

Why No One Signed Up for Your Virtual Summit

I’m feeling a little spicy this week…but lovingly spicy, of course…because we’re going to talk about why no one signed up for your virtual summit.

If you’re someone that this has happened to, as long as you’re not sitting here blaming summits as the reason it didn’t work, the spice is not directed at you. It is fully directed at people who...
