Do You Want More Connections, Clients, and Money for The Unique, One-of-a-Kind Value You Offer?
Then amplify what sets you apart from everyone else...
(That's what I did.)
• And almost immediately, I was invited to do 2-day training at Stanford University to 126 global business leaders.
• Two months later, I was hired by a Fortune 100 company to help shift culture and transform customer experience.
That made for an almost double 6-figure year for me!
In actual dollars, I earned more than $192,000 vs. $24,000 the year before.
That's seven-times more money, which gave me more financial and time freedom.
I could serve even more people while making more money AND having the discretion to use my time the ways I want!
(If this all sounds "too good to be true", I'm here to tell you that it is possible and I'm going to share how I did it.)
But first, context is key (because this story didn't start out very glamorous at all)...
During my first 5 years, my business was called Marketing With A Heart. (So was my first book)
And for those 5 years, my business was doing, um... well... just OK.
• Clients were irregular and infrequent...
("But at least they were consistent about it... sheesh!")
• Money was TIGHT...
("$50,000 of debt, and way too much of that was on credit cards!")
• I KNEW I could be serving and impacting more people through my work...
("Instead of just serving hors d'oeuvres and cocktails at catering gigs in San Francisco!")
• And the hardest part was that feeling of less and less (and less) inspiration...
("My confidence was shot. I was losing faith and the connection to my heart!")
I was scared & depressed because I thought
none of my dreams were EVER going to happen!
So I hired the right coach, did some deep work & reflection (i.e. the "inner game") , and realized something.
It was clearly time for me to position my business (and myself) in a way that shows I have a clear message, unique offer, and proven method that creates real transformation in businesses, organizations, and people's lives.
That was the birth of Influence With A Heart®.
And that taught me something radically powerful that would TRANSFORM my business.
You want to amplify what sets you apart from every other “expert”, “authority”, “thought leader”, or “influencer”.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT
RIGHT NOW, AS THE WORLD SHIFTS
AND YOU PIVOT YOUR BUSINESS
When you communicate the true value you provide — you quickly find your way straight to the clients and companies who are a great fit — AND to that magical place where you serve even more people bigger... while making more money and having the discretion to use your time the ways you want.
When you do this, you no longer have to worry about "the competition".
Instead, you can focus your time, energy, and attention on magnetizing and attracting more of the right people and opportunities to you, rather than chasing after them.
Have you ever thought about what makes it possible for a company like Apple to charge LOTS for things like the iPhone?
The simple answer is because they’ve done the work to provide the marketplace and their audience with something they simply CAN’T get anywhere else.
When YOU are able to do that, you can pretty much write your own ticket.
It's what I've been doing in my business for the last 5 years.
And you can do it too!
The key is to stand out, authentically, as an expert, authority, thought leader, or influencer in the space that you're looking to impact.
BUT... if you DON'T do this...
1. the person or audience you most want to serve is going to choose someone else (or some other organization) because you’re not standing out
2. You’ll be blending yourself in with your potential client’s many other choices, pretty much ruining your chances of ever receiving the high fees that you deserve for bringing your message to the world.
3. As a result, you won't reach more of the right people with your message because you sound like everyone else.
This is EXTRA CRITICAL if you have a book (or are writing just now).
Because your identity has shifted.
When you publish a book, you become an influencer, an author, and people will search for more information about you. (Great!)
Which means your positioning needs to be updated to reflect your new role as an influencer in your market.
The first places they will go are to your website and LinkedIn profile and then they'll look at your presence on other social media
Because your new readers will want to know more about you and discover more about what you offer.
Not to mention the people who will book you for speaking, interview you on podcasts, hire you for consulting, and connect with you about partnerships and collaborations,
If these don't align with your new positioning, then you will quickly lose that expert / authority / though leader influencer status.
If you write a book about building a business, and your positioning doesn't match, your audience, reader, or potential client will experience a psychological disconnect and your "trust factor" will plummet.
You'll create confusion and you lose your status, instantly.
So make sure to use the correct positioning among in all of your assets, strategically.
HOW I DID IT: Here's The Snapshot
I developed a clear message, unique offer, and proven method, in a book that connects my special sauce to what my ideal clients want & organizations are looking for.
I continue to walk the path that I'm guiding others along... that's grounded in my experience, hard-earned wisdom, 2 books, case studies, and stories.
My messaging, positioning, and online 'real estate' are clear, aligned, and consistent.
This creates safety, authority, and trust while helping to build a relationship.
Q: "Is The Path Really That Simple?"
A: "YES! And if I did this, so can you."
If you follow the method, guidance, and strategy that I teach, It will absolutely work for you!
This is how & why I got hired to a 2-day training at Stanford University AND was hired by a Fortune 100 company to help shift culture and transform customer experience.
That made for an almost double 6-figure year for me!)

No Risk... Satisfaction, Guaranteed!

A NOTE FROM BEN:
"When I do this process 1-on-1 with clients, they each invest $5,000.00.
This is the same method that I'm doing with folks 1-on-1. But the investment for this program is 90% less than what I'm charging for private work.
"But right now, you can get on board at a CRAZY LOW INVESTMENT of $997... AND get the benefit of a GROUP MASTERMIND!
"That's multiple brains for the price of one!
"It's absolutely worth it!
"And I can't guarantee the same pricing after this group, so hop in now!
("Because, as I mentioned , when you hire me 1-on-1 for book coaching, you'll be investing $5,000 in yourself.")
Want to join me for $997
(instead of $5,000.00)?
