  • I’ve been feeling kind of down over the last few days, probably like a lot of you, because of what happened in Boston. But I gotta tell you, what helped me rally tonight… Do things a little differently tonight… a lot of you have read one or both of my ebooks on this topic… if you hear us talking about an ebook… You’ll see to the left of your screen…

  • I say paying because a lot of us do volunteer work in this space before we move into paid work. Landing your first paying client is one of the BIG CHALLENGES…
  • How many of you got your first paying gig thru friends or family? CHAT INTO BOX SHARE LINK to tell how they landed their first client!
  • Share link with more details… So provide great value and ACT like you’re worth it, and you will be.
  • The short answer is yes. The long answer is, let me show you MY process for bringing on new clients… As I said earlier, this is just ONE way to do this – just because I’m sharing it doesn’t mean it’s the ONLY way or the RIGHT way
  • Before we go into questions… a lot of you have my two social media guides already, but if you don’t, they’re out there. I don’t like to use these webinars to try to sell you something, but I did want to mention these since they could be helpful resources for you. HAVE CARRIE SHARE LINKS
