When I was running my consulting business and first started my coaching practice, each one of my clients had specific, varying needs. For this reason, every proposal or solution I offered was custom-tailored to fit them like a glove. They always got exactly what they needed to solve their specific problems, but there’s just one problem with this approach.

 

When you create bespoke, custom-built services, you morph what you offer around what your client needs. This makes marketing and selling super easy. However, what isn’t easy is getting back the hours you spend essentially reinventing the wheel with each and every client, which not only creates so much complexity in your business, but also sucks all your time and energy.

For those of you who want to stop being the linchpin in your company the way you are now so you can finally create more time and freedom, the solution here is a scalable offer. At Safi Media, we believe in the power of a scalable offer that increases your income without having to increase your effort, but how do you do that?

 

In this episode, I’m first guiding you through how to create a scalable offer. You’ll discover why marketing and selling becomes more challenging when you make this shift in approach, and therefore, how to create demand for the solution you’re now offering.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • What a scalable offer means, and how to create one.
  • 3 secrets to building the skill of creating demand.
  • The pros and cons of creating bespoke consulting or services for every single one of your clients.
  • What the pretzel approach means, and why you don’t need to create demand when you use it.
  • Why creating demand is a skill that requires a profound shift in your approach.
  • How to be effective in creating demand around scalable offers.

So often in the work I do with my clients, I see women leaders doing highly valuable, complex work selling packaged services, coaching products, or intellectual property. However, when the market wants us to provide customizable, made-to-order contracts and offerings, there’s a huge labor and cognitive strain involved.

 

Go back 10 years in my business and you’ll see that everything I did was customized. This meant that I was stuck at $250K a year at an absolute maximum. The truth is you can choose to hustle in this way, but like me, you’ll experience an earning ceiling that seems impossible to break through, and not only that, you’ll be intellectually exhausted.

If you’ve been experiencing a revenue plateau, it might be time to audit the complexity in your business and release it. When you can create an offer that doesn’t require extra legwork from you to deliver, whether you’re selling $500K or $5K worth of that offer in a year, you’ve created what is known as a $500K Offer. And on this episode, I’m guiding you through the steps to creating exactly this.

 

Join me this week to discover how to use the $500K Offer to make the second half of 2022 more lucrative while experiencing more freedom. I’m showing you why this is the key to making your company scalable, and how to start driving constructive change so you can take your business from where it currently is to where you want to go.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • What the $500K offer is all about.
  • Why I don’t offer customized packages or services.
  • The key to a million-dollar revenue stream in your business.
  • How to create a $500K offer.
  • Why you want to bring standardization to your offerings.

As women founders and leaders, we talk often about making money, and lots of it. But are we using the money we make to create the kinds of changes that we want to see in the world? I like to say that money is power, but only if you make it so.

Your money becomes a powerful force when you use it in a way that advances your mission, aligns with your values, and brings your vision to life. And this week, I have someone who is a living example of what’s possible when you’re intentional about how you generate wealth and use your money to advance the causes you believe in.

Pamela Slim is an author, business coach, and co-founder of Main Street Learning Lab. Her newest book, The Widest Net is based on a fascinating approach to what she calls ecosystem marketing, and since my work is all about helping founders like you create seven-figure ecosystems, I think you’ll find our work dovetails beautifully.

 

In this day and age where there’s a massive demand for constant production of content and having face time with your people, you’re not alone if your company’s marketing feels exhausting and depleting. Ecosystem marketing is the key to creating a growth model that feels nourishing and that is truly sustainable for the long term, and Pamela is walking us through it in this episode. 


Tune in this week to discover how there’s nothing that will help you grow more strategically and quickly than looking at your marketing through the lens of an ecosystem. Pamela is offering her insights on the future of ecosystem marketing, how she applies this framework to her own business and the power of looking at the totality of your network and making intentional decisions about community engagement. 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

  • Why there is nothing that helps business owners grow more strategically and quickly than ecosystem marketing. 
  • How Pamela has applied the ecosystem marketing lens on her own business. 
  • The power of looking at the people who are already congregating in your orbit.
  • Why ecosystem marketing is the antidote to your marketing feeling exhausting.
  • The principles of really effective partnerships. 
  • How you can leverage the power of tiny marketing actions to up-level your business.

Are you being the kind of founder and leader that a seven-figure company truly requires? Is your relationship with your business mature enough to continue taking it to new heights?

 

If you think about your human relationships, especially with children if you have them, you’ll understand how your relationship with them has to evolve. Without the level of maturity that you bring to the table, their growth and development gets stymied. And the same is true for your relationship with your business.

 

Keep reading

 

What I’m offering to you this week is that you don’t own your business as much as you partner with it. The cash, influence, and autonomy you want to create through your business requires a mature partnership, and what I see too often in my work is women founders having an immature relationship with their company, which makes producing powerful results impossible.

 

Tune in to hear how a mature partnership with your business might be the missing piece right now. I’m showing you how we’re using the rise of anti-hustle culture as an excuse to not show up as a mature leader, the reality of the entrepreneurial experience, and the 3 keys to developing a mature relationship with your business as a seven-figure founder.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • What an immature relationship with your business looks like.
  • The reality of the entrepreneurial experience and what it takes to grow a company.
  • Why the powerful results you want to create are dependent on your relationship with your business.
  • The most important emotional state for showing up as a high-functioning founder and leader.
  • 3 keys to creating a mature relationship with your business as a seven-figure founder.
  • What makes a partnership truly work.

You are listening to the 500th episode of the podcast this week. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning, listening along for over five years, or you’re a new friend here, I honor and appreciate you for showing up.

 

As I personally celebrate 500 episodes, close to two million downloads of the show, and the reach it has set up for me to influence and empower thousands of women founders around the world, I want to let you in on a secret that has helped me generate millions upon millions of dollars in my business.

 

Keep reading

 

If you think this has required complicated marketing tactics and obsessively trying to figure out how to grow my audience, think again. Sure, that can help, but what truly works for raking in millions isn’t fancy, trendy, glamorous, or even particularly fun. However, if you want to set up a financial fortress like I have, it’s necessary. And it’s called showing up.

 

Join me this week as I show you how you can make millions as a founder if you’re willing to show up for your dream. I’m walking you through my podcasting journey to exemplify the power of consistent dedication so you too can blow your own mind with what practicing showing up can do for your bank account, your life, and your future.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The power of consistent dedication.
  • Why you need to start practicing showing up as a strategy to drive millions for your business.

I talk to many business owners who are in the process of shifting their business models from a one-to-one model to one where they have the ability to sell to many people at once. This is one of the classic ways we scale up a service or knowledge-based company, and lots of entrepreneurs are trying to figure out how to package up what they do to offer to multiple people at once.

 

For some reason, in the process of making this shift, I watch brilliant women founders make the leap of logic that they must now become excellent digital or social media marketers. They believe this is the only way to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the only way to build a million-dollar business selling scaled-up services.

Many of you have fantastic networks and have always been great at relational marketing, but you’re struggling with digital marketing, and you can’t figure out how those entrepreneurs advertising on Instagram or LinkedIn are getting it to work so amazingly for them. So this raises the question: is it possible to market effectively without resorting to social media?

 

Join me on the podcast this week as I reassure you that it’s totally possible to dramatically increase your program sales without social media. We’re exploring and debunking why so many leaders believe they need to utilize digital marketing or social media to scale, and 3 things you can do instead.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • Why so many founders believe they have to use social media to market their leveraged offers.
  • The sneaky ways we discount the revenue we’ve made.
  • 3 things you can do instead of marketing your programs through social media.
  • How to get clear on what’s in your lane, and what isn’t.
  • Why you don’t need social media to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • How to market your programs without social media.

May 3, 2022

Why are you feeling hesitant about raising your prices? If this is something you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t yet, you’ve likely been told that it’s because you have a scarcity mindset around your business. While this messaging often comes from a place of good intention, it’s actually totally off the mark.

 

You probably have legitimate questions and reasons for why you’re not raising your prices. Being told we have to cultivate an abundant mindset is just one of the ways women’s thoughts are weaponized against us because if you want to charge premium prices but aren’t doing it, your mindset is not the problem here.

 

Keep reading

 

Instead, there’s often more systemic issues happening inside your business. If you want to charge premium prices, it’s because you know profit is power. The more profit you have, the more resources you have to invest in making your vision real. So today, I’m introducing you to the best tool for guaranteeing and growing your profit.

 

Listen in this week as I show you why charging premium prices is a positioning problem that needs to be addressed and solved, rather than a mindset problem. I’m walking you through the three disciplines of premium pricing and serving high-end clients, so you can scale your cash, influence, and autonomy.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The best tool to guarantee and grow your profit.
  • How the most common advice women receive about raising prices is untrue and used against us.
  • Why not raising your prices is not a mindset issue.
  • The 3 disciplines of premium pricing and serving high-end clients.
  • What charging premium pricing is going to require of you.

Are you overpricing or underpricing your offers? This is a question that has many of my clients spinning in circles, completely confused and lost. Figuring out how much to charge is a really important decision any CEO or founder is going to make, and pricing strategy is something that comes up a lot in my work.

 

In a world where business rules have been written by men, how do women like us create enormous success on our terms? For so long, our contributions have been undervalued and overlooked. The gender pay gap is real, and the numbers simply don’t lie.

 

Keep reading

 

Women across the board are underpricing their offers and under-earning. So the advice we’re given is, “Charge your worth.” The intent behind owning our worth seems great at face value and there are instances where keeping this in mind is effective. But I consider this to be somewhat troubling advice, and I’m breaking down why on this episode.

 

Join me this week as I show you why we need to understand the difference between charging our worth and charging our value. You’ll discover why value creation is the name of the game, and how to understand, claim, and articulate the value of what you have to offer.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • Why the common advice women are given is troubling.
  • The intent behind the advice of charging what we’re worth.
  • Why your worth is infinite and nothing changes that.
  • How to understand, claim, and articulate the value of your offers.
  • The difference between charging what we’re worth and charging what our value is.
  • How this distinction makes all the difference as you build your seven-figure business.

Apr 19, 2022

The most important emotional state for entrepreneurial achievement is not motivation, commitment, or dedication. It’s willingness. When you cultivate within yourself a state of willingness, you are equipping yourself with the emotional juice required to transform at a deep level. 

 

Willingness allows you to reinvent your future one project, one experience, and one result at a time. However, many of you aren’t currently in that state of willingness, and this episode will help you change that.

 

Keep reading

 

Women entrepreneurs often have deep commitment to their goals, but that’s not enough. Commitment is the silent pact you make within yourself, an internal decision to go for your dream. It matters, but willingness matters more. 

 

In this episode, find out what willingness is, why it matters, and three steps to cultivate it for yourself. You’ll discover why this emotional state is so critical for entrepreneurial achievement and the tremendous impact it will have on your business. I’m sharing what willingness has done and will do for my business, and where to go to work on this with me and my team.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The difference between having a vision and making your vision real.
  • What willingness is.
  • Why strategies and tactics aren’t enough to create results.
  • How to be willing to face the fallout of your actions, good or bad. 
  • Why willingness is so imperative for entrepreneurs.
  • How to cultivate greater willingness.

Apr 12, 2022

As women entrepreneurs, we live and breathe in the results economy. We are not paid for the amount of time and effort that we put into a project. We are compensated based on the value that we create in the marketplace and the tangible results we create for other people. And when we put half-done work out into the world, we’re not compensated at all.

 

Over here at Safi Media, we’re all about creating tangible value for female founders. Now, what we’ve come to realize is that work that is in progress creates little to no value in the marketplace. Work that is done is what creates value for yourself and other people.

 

Keep reading

 

Because I and so many of my clients operate in this results economy, understanding the difference between fake results and real results is a massive gamechanger. We’re not here to squander our hours of effort by putting work out half-finished. So this week, I’m discussing how to actually get things done so you see real results.

 

If you can align your efforts and intentions with real results, your level of success, your bottom line, and the impact you have will increase exponentially without burning out, and who doesn’t want that? In today’s episode, I’m breaking down the difference between fake results and real results, how to distinguish between the two in your business, and how to create real results for your business.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • Why, if you put half-done work into the world, you get fake results.
  • What fake results look like in your business and why they make us think we’re being productive.
  • Why the only way to get real results is to put your completed work into the marketplace.
  • How we help our clients to bring done energy to their work, instead of spinning in perfectionism.
  • Why tolerating unclosed loops and unfinished work is sending the wrong messages to your team and your clients.
  • What you can do to move past your fake results and start creating completed work that yields real results in the marketplace

Apr 5, 2022

About 18 months ago, I was having a conversation with a wise mentor of mine about the vision I had for my company and how I saw our position in the world. It was big, exciting, and I had confidence and trusted myself, but I kept butting up against a ceiling in terms of my own ability.

 

This is when my mentor said, “Eleanor, unlocking the next level of your vision isn’t about what you do. It’s about becoming the woman who is capable of having those things.” That conversation sparked a quest inside me to do an even deeper level of personal development work in order to bring my vision to life.

 

Keep reading

 

Personal development is a journey that never stops, and I realized the inner work I needed to do to become that woman, I needed to do a different type of inner work. I needed to take my good emotional resilience skills and make them even greater. And if you want to do the same, one thing you’ll need to do is balance great insight with listening to yourself.

 

So, in today’s podcast, I’m introducing you to a powerful creative, artistic, inspiring voice in the field of personal development: Tina Lifford. Tina is an author, a successful actress, and the founder of the Inner Fitness Project, and she’s a queen whose voice, leadership, and ideas have always inspired me, and she’s here to inspire you as well.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The emotional resilience required to be a visionary CEO.
  • The most important inner fitness skills we need to build up.
  • How we lie to ourselves by believing we need to have all the answers in order to do something successfully.
  • What it means to become a woman who is capable of having a business that can change the world.
  • The weight of believing you’re alone in pursuit of your vision, and why crewing up is the answer.
  • What changes when you use curiosity as a tool to communicate with that which is guiding your mission.
  • How to unleash the true depth of your purpose and vision into the world through the vehicle of your business.

As women founders and entrepreneurs, we’ve been fed a lot of advice about the power of staying open-minded. We’re told to stay open to external feedback, ways of doing things, and challenges that come our way. Being a good leader, we’re told, means staying open.

 

I’ve spent the first part of my life, as I’m sure you have, honing my skills on openness. It’s one of my core values, and the periods in my business and personal development where I’ve been completely open to ideas and stimulus from other people have served me extremely well.

 

Keep reading

 

But what I’ve discovered of late is that there is power in intentionally closing down and being non-receptive. The notion of closing down gets a bad rap, and while there’s definitely a time and place for being open, purposefully choosing to be non-receptive is more valuable than you think, and I’m showing you why.

 

If you often find yourself overwhelmed or distracted to the point where you can’t hear yourself think, or you identify as a sensitive person and you’re ready to find a new way to protect your energy and creativity, learning the skill of being non-receptive is key. On this episode, I’m showing you what I’ve come to realize about the power of being non-receptive, and my top strategies for practicing this.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • How being open-minded can serve us well at the beginning of our business journey.

Many of you listening sell knowledge and transformation through your expertise, whether it’s as a coach, consultant, author, or podcaster. And one thing I often see in these areas is entrepreneurs rushing into packaging and marketing something just so they can get it out into the world as fast as possible. However, this never produces the most important result your business needs: maximum value for your clients. This is where your philosophy comes into play.
