Check out this free shortcut for entrepreneurs

Some of you want to start your own business or are looking for your next big thing. Am I right?

I know this because you’ve told me through the years as you’ve followed my journey from full time producer to side hustler with my book Listful Thinking to full on entrepreneur with my media coaching and training business.

It’s been 6 months since I left my full time job as a senior health producer at Fox News Channel and believe me – I don’t have it all figured out.

But what I do know is that finding experts to give you shortcuts is the way to go.

I was invited to speak as a media expert at this year’s UpLEVEL Together Online Summit because getting media for your business can give you a credibility boost and bring eyeballs your way like nothing else.

It’s the global online summit for early-stage women entrepreneurs, I know many of you fall into this category or know someone who does!

From April 23rd – 27th, experts (including me) from around the world will be pouring their knowledge and practical tips into YOUR business! (or potential business)

Some pretty incredible women entrepreneurs are featured who have accomplished a lot in their careers, too. Here are a couple things you’ll learn:

– How to build a brand you love!

-How to create a scalable business model!

– How to get camera ready so you can maximize opportunities!

– How to get booked by media! (that’s my piece!)

– Why it’s important to develop a powerful company culture early!

– And much more!

This is an event you’re not going to want to miss! Afraid you can’t “be there”? Don’t worry!

The UpLEVEL Together Summit is a FREE, VIRTUAL online conference!

You don’t have to travel – the interviews come to you to you! They’ll be broadcast over the web, so you can watch from the comfort of home.

You can watch every speaker’s interview for 2 hours after it goes live. See the agenda for more details.

The Summit is hosted by my friend, fellow entrepreneur, Ginny Townsend.

She has over a decade strategic marketing experience and has helped organizations of all shapes, sizes and industries draw out their unique gold, as well as, understand where they’ve been holding themselves back in the marketplace.

Join me and 19 other experts at the UpLEVEL Together Summit. Grab your FREE ticket today!

In my talk I’ll be explaining how to get booked by the media – it’s not as complicated as it seems! My talk on Wed April 25th so be sure to tune in!

How to Break Down Your Goals

Whatever project you have in mind, whether it’s writing a book, planning a big dinner party or starting your own side hustle, these big ideas can quickly become overwhelming. Thinking about all the work you have left to do can make you feel like giving up before you even begin..

To help me feel less overwhelmed I use a little trick called “backtiming.” This is a concept I picked up from my day job as a TV news producer. If your show finishes at 11pm, that’s it, you can’t over run. So to make the news work on time we start with the end in mind and work backwards. This guarantees that you’ll finish on time.

This method has multiple real world applications, if you’re a whiz in the kitchen you probably use this method to ensure all the various elements of your dish will finish at the same time. You can also use backtiming to plan out your future goals. For more on how backtiming works check this out.

It also helps to break up your goals into smaller, more manageable pieces. You can focus on one of these lists at a time to prevent yourself from getting distracted by all the other pieces of the puzzle. Read more
