Theresa Lambert:

Hello, hello and welcome back to another fabulous episode of dissecting success. My name is Theresa Lambert and I'm here with Blair Kaplan Venables. And we are having all sorts of recording issues this morning. But this is not stopping us from bringing you a very important conversation, which is about money and making money in your business and achieving your money goals, your income goals, your sales goals. And one thing that comes to mind for me is this saying, and it used to just piss me off and trigger me so much. So I'm gonna start with that because it's juicy. But if you don't make sales in your business, you don't have a business, you have a hobby. And it used to just cut me and you know why? Because there wasn't making any money. And so it was triggering the heck out of me. And it is so true. We've got to be able to have cash come in, we've got to be able to put sales and revenue on the books again and again and again. And this is how you ultimately be able to do the work that you do. As a coach, as an entrepreneur, as a service based business owner, whatever it is that you do that you're out there, whatever it is that you do, and that inspires you to listen to his podcast, making money, being able to achieve your goals in terms of revenue, and then an income you can pay yourself is mission critical when it comes to your business and revenue driving activities should be your number one priority every single day. And this is something I talk about so much with my clients and help my clients understand because everything else ain't mattering so much. Because if you can't have that come in. It's just not going to work. So this is what we're going to talk about bla

Blair Kaplan Venables:gs in life. But like I have a:Theresa Lambert:

And I'm going to dive into how we can help our clients make money but something that you you mentioned, and I remember us having this conversation when we were talking about money and worth before is that money is not just about setting money goals and having the outer strategies like the strategies in your business to make the money but it's also really dealing with all your money stuff, looking at money, like I just sat down and my business again, like I do this again and again and again. And I keep digging and digging and digging of what's working and what's not working. And I'm getting really clear. And June, I had a cash flow issue. I had a cash flow issue, because I made like, over like five figures in sales. But out of that only a few $1,000 Actually were cash and the rest is future revenue. Now, that's amazing. Because that means more money is coming in. Like it's amazing to note that 30 or $40,000 are literally on their way and on the books and payment plans. Like this is what it's all about. Right? Like we're building wealth, we're building cushions, but reality is I have a lot of bills going out. I have a team now of people that I pay, like, do rich things coming in and rich things coming out. And so I've always known this in business. And this was a huge thing when I was managing, you know, a multi million dollar budget a year where we would have at times over a million dollars go out in the month was cashflow. You've got to have cashflow. Like it looks awesome. If you have a get you can literally have a profit in your business. This is the thing like you could have a big sales month, you can have a profitable month on paper. Yet you can run into cashflow issues, Isn't that wild? Like I think this these are some of the things that people don't realize, so we have to look at our money, we have to also look at what are some of the behaviors that we'll be practicing around money that aren't so great. I know I was overspending on some things earlier this year on programs and courses and 75% of it. You know what? I didn't even use it. Had I not bought these programs, I would have an extra $10,000 in the bank right now. Like that's substantial, right? So we have to get clear on these things. We have to get clear on the behaviors that don't work for us. And then we have to understand why are we doing that? Right? Like why are we doing that related to money. So I feel like that is also one way that you know, when you work with me, these are some things I will dive in with you. If you are not making money if you are having troubles with your money we not we don't just look at what is the strategy to help you get to have more money come in. But also what do you do with the money that's coming in? How do you assign the money that's coming in? How do you budget? And so these are just some things too, that I definitely have been reflecting on from a CEO perspective, right from a big picture vision. And, you know, there's multiple ways you can make money. But I feel like the biggest thing that I help people do to make money is launching the office properly. But I feel like Blair like I can see she's like dying to say something. And so I was

Blair Kaplan Venables:

just gonna say stop hitting your mic.

Theresa Lambert:

Oh, stop. Oh, my God. I'm like having all the issues today. No, you're

Blair Kaplan Venables:I you know, it's cost between:Theresa Lambert:full one to one slots, I have:Theresa Lambert:

And yes, I have payment plans for that. And yes, I like that's the thing, like I'm like, Okay, let's get the payment plans in place, let's make sure you know, door is not just in cash that's coming in this month. But I'm starting to know that for the next three months, six months, there's a set amount of cash coming in every month, so that I can manage my business and I can manage my cash flow, right. And so this is what we help you do is playing at a quality level playing actually, by you make the real money, like and figuring that out. And yeah, like, is it going to take some time and dedication for you to get there? Absolutely. Absolutely. If you're brand new in business, we may have to have a conversation about expectation, and what needs to happen for you to get there. Because it's going to require you to put in the work and not everybody is willing to do the work. So you know, that's the only thing that I'm going to say is that, you know, it also depends on where you're at and what you've been doing up until now. But Blair can help you highlight your background for example, right? So many of our clients have a background in corporate and have done some really cool things we can use that we can tap into your existing knowledge that you have, we can tap into your expertise, knowledge that you have built over, possibly a decade or more and then position you in a way where you can actually charge the Quality and market in a way where people say yes, I want to pay for that.

Blair Kaplan Venables:

So, you know, this is a short and sweet episode. Just to recap the way I one of the ways, some of the ways, one of the ways, there's many ways I can help you make money is I will work with you on creating a social media and thought leadership empowerment plan. Okay, that is extremely important. It's important to have a strategy, it's important to know what what the world perceives you as and manage the perception of that. And Teresa will help you make money by doing consulting by helping you with your offers by helping you restructure everything that you do. And coaching it. We were both coaches, I coach on Social Media and Publicity and obviously entrepreneurship. I've had my business for 14 years. Teresa, she was in corporate and she took seven a seven figure business to eight figures in under two years, she made over six figures, she knows what she's doing. I know what I'm doing. And if you want in on this, we're actually both offering. Well, I'll tell you what I'm offering in the shownotes you can actually book a complimentary session with me a half an hour session, I'm going to ask you what you want to talk about when you apply and let's just talk about your business. I want to know if I can help you like what can I do in that half an hour you get to utilize me and my experience. And I have a little like test on what it's like to work with me. But I've been helping businesses I've been helping business owners uplevel their social media skills up level their visibility and thought leadership, but basically make over five figures a month. And Theresa just want to like maybe give her give the listeners out there a little recap on how you help them make money at high level.

Theresa Lambert:

Yeah, absolutely. You know, I think my genius, really is my ability to look at your business, see where your gaps are at and start creating strategies and tools for you and systems for you that you then can implement. And like I really and this has really hit home to me in the last couple of weeks like I am not only going to coach you to integrate and implement all of the things I'm actually going to look at your business with you draw out all that is there, understand your business at a deep level. And then I basically put my CEO hat on because I'm an exceptional CEO. And I'm very good at making other businesses money I've like established that. And I'm going to strategize for you, I'm going to look at the things for you creating you a product, we creating your offers, outlining what your offers are going to include. Of course, we've had conversations where I know what you want to do. But I literally take what you give me and I create for you a business model and a business strategy that then you can show up for so you can achieve your goals, whether that is related to how you're pricing your services, creating irresistible offers, launching the offers marketing about the offers the content and the positioning of that like I literally will take what you give me. And I will create a plan and a strategy for you. And this piece is new. Because I've been doing a coaching on it and doing it alongside you. Now I'm actually going to take this and I will do it for you. And then we implement it together. Because I'm realizing that this will what will this do? Why am I doing this? Now? Why have I realized this? Because a I'm a geek, and I love it. I love it. Like if you let me lose on your business. I'm like the happiest person ever. Like, he's like we have a meeting you tell me all the things about your business, I get a really good idea what you're doing, what works, what doesn't. And then I take it. And I go into my genius zone. And I map things out for you. And then we go through the plan and then we we run with the fucking plan. And it will reduce the time it takes for you to be able to hit the goal that you need to hit and like literally I just like two weeks ago had a conversation with one of my strategic clients. And we worked on her pricing. And we adjusted her pricing and we made some slight changes and we were going through how we can amend the pricing like this is just something simple how we can change the pricing, how we can add payment plans, introduce all that and change up how she's charging for painful and boom. Next week, she signed a new client at a new prices.

Blair Kaplan Venables:

Yes, so good. Okay, so you can work with Theresa, you can work with me. We both help you make money. In fact we even offer coaching together but I think this is a good place for you to you know really start. Think about your business what you're charging what you're offering. Are you even charging enough money How are you marketing those services? Are you in the media? Do you have a plan, a business plan a strategy? Do you have launch plans? Are you even being strategic? Do you have an empowerment plan for thought leadership? If you don't, that's okay, because we can help you. So check out the show notes, check out the links book in a call with us. You know, Teresa also has her booking link in the show notes too. And, you know, if you want book a call with both of us, you know, utilize our genius. I hate the term picking my brain. So I'm not going to let you pick my brain. But I want to have an intelligent conversation about where you are and where you want to be, and how we can help you and Teresa wants to do the same. So this was a potent, pungent is a pungent, potent, punchy and potent episode about money. Teresa and I make money we teach our clients how to make money, we make money with you, we don't just tell you what to do. We show you what to do, and we help you.
