Starting My Business Was Hard, Really Hard.
In 2006, I left my job as a brand manager at L’Oreal Paris to start my own business.
I had an MBA from Kellogg School of Management. And I grew up in an entrepreneurial household.
I thought I was hot stuff.
I thought I was going to rock this entrepreneur thing.
And then I got checked by reality. Hard.
Within 1 year, I racked up $25,000 in debt, investing in trainings & programs, and trying to launch my own products & programs (most of which flopped).
I rented out my New York apartment just to have enough money to pay my bills each month. I basically ran my business from my friends’ couches.
I realized that I had zero method to my madness.
“I was just trying one random
thing after another – and no one
was able to tell me what ORDER
to do them in.”
So I spent the next year figuring it out…
I paid close attention to my numbers.
I tracked what worked, and what didn’t.
I identified which activities would make money the fastest.
I hired a master coach to help me (with a short term loan from my family).
And I turned my business (and my life) around.
By the end of that year, I had 22 clients, 2 group programs, $12,000 in savings, and ZERO dollars in debt.
Every year since then,
I’ve dramatically increased my revenue.
Today, I’m a 7-figure business owner, coaching women in building businesses that change their lives, their families’ lives, and their clients’ lives. (Many of my clients have doubled and tripled their revenue within 1 year of working with me.)
The reason I make money is so I can have an amazing life, which includes transforming the lives of my clients.
But it also includes awesome pork buns at Momofuku in New York, hanging with my dad on his porch all day, and traveling with my partner Jai. (I’m also a lover of all things Fantasy and Science Fiction and own at least 6 different decks of Oracle Cards.)
Extremely helpful.Before my Intensive Day, I was doing well getting clients, but didn’t know what the next move should be. Monica gave me precise steps to take and clear monetary goals to cover my upcoming expenses. It was extremely helpful.I was very excited to have help creating my packages and programs, and ascertaining prices that felt comfortable to me but also helped me get paid for the value I provide. Monica is brilliant at weaving in the emotional, spiritual, and grounded numbers part of finances and presenting them in creative ways which are easily understood and remembered.
If you want to make more money – go!Monica runs an amazing event, full of invaluable content. Before I showed up, I didn’t realize how difficult and heavy my business felt. Now, I bounce out of bed on fire to bring something valuable to the world.As a result, I’ve signed more clients in the last 3 days than I did last month. If you want to make more money in your business or you want to reach more people with your amazing products, then I highly recommend attending!
A killer class!I’ve been a professional success coach for the last 17 years with a thriving private practice, but I’ve attempted to take my business online since 2009 with zero success. (Even after purchasing countless thousands of dollars of programs from some of the top industry leaders.)I am very excited! I actually have a launch schedule planned for the year! I am three quarters of the way to having my product complete, and I can’t put into words how motivating the tech days were to me. Massive gratitude!I have never been this close to making it happen after seven years of dipping my toe in the water!I also really enjoyed how both Monica and Linda were so down to earth, approachable and made me believe ordinary people like myself can make extraordinary income online with my expertise. A killer class! I am deeply grateful!
I’ve reorganized my business, raised my prices, and have more financial peace.Monica taught high quality techniques and gave easy to use, practical tools – even giving us a full workbook to keep and use. It wasn’t just lectures. There were people making emotional breakthroughs and having epiphanies all weekend.This year, I worked with fewer clients and made over 20% increase from the year before! I’ve reorganized the structure of my business, raised my prices, and have more financial peace. I didn’t even realize how stressed out I was about money until the burden lifted as the months went by. I’m more relaxed, I have more me time, I feel better and can deliver more to my clients because of it.
I got 2 brand new clients the same week.Monica is a wonder. She gave so much information and so much value during the three days. I saw that I was not alone in my business struggles. That there was a path going forward that could take my business exactly where I wanted to go. And it was doable, actionable steps I could take to help me succeed. The first thing that I did when I got home was to raise my prices by 50% and I got two brand new clients the same week.
I pushed through my fears.This was amazing for me! With Monica’s support at the Intensive, I was able to push through my being scared and stuck (that keeps popping up) and trust myself more and see real opportunity as opposed to objections. Her insight and sense of reading and understanding people is unparalleled. I loved standing in the hot seat with Monica’s crystal clarity and a group of individuals who all wanted to become more successful in their business. I feel so energized with what I need to do!
The program is amazing.I’d been in business full time for over a decade, earning low 6 figures for several years. I didn’t know how I was going to increase my revenue beyond that.Since starting to work with Monica a year ago, I made almost $100K more than the year before. (I am renting a beach house for 3 weeks this upcoming August.) The program is amazing. It gives direct 1-on-1 relationship with Monica, and we’re able to curate and nurture my already successful business, plus groom for growth and expansion. Monica’s motivation is purely altruistic. She wants my company to scale, and for me to be prepared for these changes.
Planners, strategies, trackers, checklists, and templates!As a lifetime entrepreneur, I’ve always considered myself brave. But as a lifetime procrastinator and perfectionist, I always had trouble stepping up and actually selling my products.In Cash Flow Mastery, I identified how I operate around money (turns out, my Money Type is an avoider-martyr). Monica then gave me tangible tools to identify and consciously override my fear-based money mindsets.Now, using my Mastery tools I consistently look at my money head-on. I’ve developed a clear strategy to create a valuable niche package. With the planners, strategies, trackers, checklists and templates, I’m well on my way to mastering my money on the road to lifestyle freedom – for me, as well as my clients.
I was impressed with the gathering of people.Monica’s intensive will assist you to define dreams that are indefinable. Neither your own fear or doubts or those of others, will prevent you from birthing your dreams to life. The group setting felt both supporting and individualized, and I was impressed with the gathering of people.I was at the airport – literally 5 hours after the the intensive – when I got the first request for more information about my “new program” I hadn’t even rolled out yet, thanks to an impromptu request from a fellow attendee to do a Facebook Live about my retreat. CRAZY RIGHT!
Tears well as I write this…For a day and a half, I watched and listened as Monica gave expert advice and solid ideas for a variety of businesses. When it was my turn, I was psyched. She cut to the heart of the matter in seconds – I’ve been all over the board with my business, but never focused on building my foundation.She also led me in some deep and profound healing around believing I am worth the money I am charging. Monica is the real deal. I am so thankful I met her and experienced a true Revenue Breakthrough. Tears well as I write this, I am so appreciative.
