Here’s Why Your Last Launch Didn’t Make Money

Have you ever created an amazing product? One that would transform your clients businesses forever? As a reader of the Decisive Minds Blog, I bet that your answer is yes.

There is nothing better that pouring your heart and soul into launching a new product, class or coaching program. There is nothing more exciting than seeing all of your hard work end in more clients and more revenue in your business.

Meet My Cousin John

Today I’m sharing some behind the scenes awesomeness (and tough love) from one of our Growth Track meetings…directed at my cousin John who enrolled last year.

Why I Haven’t Done Any Planning for 2016 Yet

If you take a few minutes and scroll through my blog, you’ll see a significant number of posts and references to sitting down and planning out your year before January 1 and how that is a good thing.
