SEP Episode #236: Walking the Lyme – Running a 7-Figure Business While Living with Lyme with TJ Nelson
Today on the show we have an old friend, TJ Nelson. TJ and I both got our start building online businesses, wanting to move out to Thailand to grow our online businesses and travel the world. Over the last 8 years, I have had the opportunity to witness TJ grow a business online and begin to start suffering from a chronic disease.
Despite going through some of the hardest challenges I have seen almost anyone go through, he’s been able to grow a thriving 7-figure business. Leading teams, inspiring people, and most recently in his book, Walk the Lyme. In his book, he shares some of the hardest and most challenging moments from this misunderstood condition and how he got through some of the darkest moments in his life
Today on the show we have Celinne Da Costa. She has been featured on this podcast, a few summits, and online events. She has been an amazing friend in this adventure of business over the last few years. She works with some of the high-level thinkers in corporate, coaching, and leadership and is at the very top of her game in high-ticket coaching.
Today on the show she is going to share some intimate and powerful stories of the subtle self-sabotage that many of her coaching clients experience and she is going to share some similar stories from her own life. There is a ton of great insight. Whether you are a leader in your field or a coach who is aspiring to serve very high-level clients this is going to be an action-packed episode for you.
Today we are going to talk about what salsa can teach you about high-ticket sales. Several times in my life I have taken dancing classes. Partner dancing is not something that comes naturally to me. In fact, it is pretty stressful and awkward.
With a partner, I am pretty stiff when I am dancing but I am the lead so I have to indicate when we are starting and where we are going. It is a lot of responsibility to be the lead and if you are not clear and confident it is hard for your partner to respond to your movement. A good lead can subtly guide a follower and instantly make them better. Wouldn’t it be good to have a lead like this in dancing and other situations like finances, sales, and eating right? What would you want to instantly and clearly be better at?
Today we are going to be answering a very important question. Should we create a new keynote speech or signature talk? There are certain crossroads at every entrepreneur’s, coach’s, and visionary’s journey where this may or may not be necessary. It takes a lot of energy to create a new presentation to spill your thoughts down to something you can use reliably in about 30-45 minutes over and over again to be a high-converting tool.
There is a certain lifespan to a good presentation or keynote and many great coaches, visionaries, and leaders are not quite aware of this lifespan. I am going to break down four different key moments when it is time to decide if you should create a new presentation.
Today I am going to tell you how I helped a client of mine create 17 YouTube videos in one day. So what does it take to create over four months of content in a single day and how would it feel knowing that is all scheduled out and planned for you? Sure sounds nice, right?
Where would you even start? For most, the idea of sitting in front of a camera for a few hours to create, talk, and share your knowledge is both intimidating and overwhelming. Content takes time! But with the right help and strategy, it can happen. Listen in to hear what we did!
Today on the show we have George Bryant. This has been one of my favorite interviews of the last couple of months. George is an excellent guest. He has a ton of experience being an influencer in the health space for a long time and he has grown many different six and seven-figure companies and simultaneously is a world-class coach and somehow does this all in just a few hours a day to make plenty of time for his family.
It wasn’t exactly an easy road to get here and he has a ton of stories to share about how that process has gone. George has a ton of gems to share about facing your fears, your hardest moments, and really leaning into the resistance. We are going to dive into a particularly interesting idea he has about how to define your ideal worst day. What are the baseline things that you can do if you can do these things even on your worst day then you still will be making progress toward your goals? We are going to explore what that looks like on the podcast today.
