You have all the answers (& they’re different for everyone)

As any good coach will tell you (not that I’m a coach, but I’ve worked with plenty!) YOU have all the answers. But there is no ‘one plan’ you must stick to or get right–there is instead the ‘right plan for you’ which is perfect for your life, business, whatever because it fits with your goals, your values, your take on things.

Sometimes it looks like an eggbox

4

I always say your Thing is the ‘gift’ that you wrap up and give out to people who need it. This gift might be a result, a feeling, a transformation, a product, a service, a widget, a gadget, and emotion, a turnaround, I don’t know what it is but I know it’s your Thing thing.

Publish ‘something’ to sell more

You don’t need a website to be able to sell your Thing. OF COURSE a website helps and provides a great focal point for prospective clients to learn about you, understand your Thing, see examples of your work, read your story, watch you in action (assuming you have videos!) and compare your offers. But you don’t need a website.
