3 Lessons (and Mistakes) to My First 6-Figures

We all have highs and lows in business, right? 

Today, I want to share with you three things that I did in my business to hit my first six figures and three mistakes I made along the way. 

I want you to learn from my successes as well as my mistakes because we’re always going to have both, right? 

For a little context, I fumbled around for about fifteen months after I left the corporate world before I started getting traction in my online business. But the first year that I really got serious about it, we did $110,000 in the business. And there are three very distinct things I did to hit that, so that’s what I want to get into today. 

On Today’s Show You’ll Learn: 

  • The importance of defining your audience 
  • Why you need to focus on one offer and one launch method 
  • The value of refining a process before automating it
  • How I overcame imposter syndrome 
  • How to show up as a confident person, even if you don’t feel confident yet
  • Why you should work on one project at a time
  • The importance of doing the mindset work 
  • The danger of letting fear drive your decisions 
  • Why you need boundaries around your work time 
  • How consistent content can grow your business 

Hopefully, some of the things we’re talking about today will help you as you continue to grow your business. Just remember that even your mistakes are learning moments! Really they are just helping you get better and better. 

And if you’re not already inside the new Optimized CEO Community Facebook group, I would love to see jump in there! 

When most online course creators try to figure out what makes other course creators successful, they usually start by asking, “what are they doing?”

If that sounds familiar, what you don’t realize is that you’re asking the wrong question.

The better question to ask is, “what am I doing that they’re not doing?”

If you want to find out the answer, you need to surround yourself with people who think like you but aren’t as close to your business as you. 

You can now do that in the free Optimized CEO Community Facebook group at www.rickmulready.com/group. I would love to see you inside!
