Ready, Steady, Cook (your products & services)

6

Here’s how you use your signature system to work out your products, services and programs.

You don’t use the entire cupboard of ingredients—you play like “Ready Steady Cook” and use the 5 (or 3 or 7) key favourite ingredients your clients need that you have in your signature system.

Making your move…

Is there ever a right time to do your Thing? Not sure on that one. But what I do know is if you’re not doing your Thing yet it’s only going to continue to piss you off ’til you start doing it!

Now, I am NOT saying you need to drop everything and start doing your Thing now–that’s hardly ever the best plan.

We all worry

We all worry about all sorts of things all the time.
