Have you ever had one of those dreams where you're trying to run from something, but it's almost like your legs are only partially working?
No matter how hard you try, you just can't go any faster...
I like to refer to this as the Quicksand Dilemma.
It's when your business is at a point where you don't know how to progress forward, but if you don't do something, you'll sink.
There are only 3 ways to get out of the Quicksand Dilemma:
When we first met Sarah, her online store was making a few thousand dollars each month—but she was stuck.
After the initial growth spurt from launching her online store, her sales had plateaued, and she knew if she wanted to build a real brand that she could focus all of her time and attention on, she needed to figure something out.
Since she wasn't a marketing expert, she decided to start researching different marketing ideas online so she could learn how to grow her business to the next level.
Here's the thing though:
You don't know what you don't know, so how are you supposed to learn what you don't know you're supposed to learn?
After not making much progress, she remembered that her friend's little brother was in school for marketing. Hopeful he could help move the business forward, she hired him for $15/hr to help part time.
Unfortunately he didn't have enough real-world experience to make real progress happen, so after 3 months and $3,500 down the drain, Sarah had to pull the plug :/
She then decided that maybe it was time to go big or go home, so she asked around her friend circle and was referred to a great marketing agency. She was quoted $36k/year just for one aspect of her marketing, and that was more than she could afford with her current revenue.
This is the root of the dilemma:
How are you supposed to grow your revenue when you don't know how to do it yourself, and you can't afford to hire an expert to do it for you?
• Increased monthly revenue by $5k/mo
• Gained 1,500+ new email subscribers
• Partnered with one of her favorite brands to run a successful giveaway
• Implemented new automations to increase revenue on autopilot
• Began transitioning to focusing on her brand full time!
