Note from Elizabeth




I have so many fantastic tips for 2012 to help you be a smarter and better business owner that I've decided to send this newsletter out twice a month.

I am so excited about this!  It's hard to decide what to talk about first as there are so many things you can do to grow your business.

What are you excited about in your business?  What is something new you can do to offer to your amazing clients? Now is the time!.

My theme for my business this year is Everything Platinum. This means that I'll be stepping up in everything I do.  If you want this, too I'd love for you to join me.  Go to TalkToElizbeth.com, answer 5 quick questions, and I'll help you go platinum!
Success Story

After I hired Elizabeth as my business coach I grew my business by 20% with the first four months. By the end of the first year I had tripled my business (yes, a 300% increase!).  I know longer waste time being unclear. My focus is doing activities that get me more of what I want and take me to my goal in order to create the business I want. No more spinning around. If it gets me toward my goal, I do it, if not I say 'No, Thank You'.

Newsletters are not dead     


One of the first things I work with my business coaching clients on is to get them to start, and in some cases re-start, doing a newsletter.  


Newsletter are alive and well.   


I can't think of a more cost effective way to stay in touch with prospects and clients. 

If you're thinking "Elizabeth, I don't have time for a newsletter". My response will always be "You don't have time NOT to have a newsletter."

Here is why:
  1. Some of our clients take months if not years to decide to work with us.  You will be the first person they think of if they get your newsletter on a regular basis. 
  2. A newsletter is a great way to let them know about a special promotion.
  3. A regular newsletter shows you're the expert they need with your great articles. If you say to me "I'm not a writer" I will respond with "I'm not either but I wrote 2 books." Where there is a will there is a way.
  4. Show before and after pictures in your newsletter and they'll know then that 'yes, you've seen everything and their situation is not the worst'.
  5. If someone is thinking about working with you but dragging their feet ask if you can subscribe them to your great newsletter.  It is so important to always have something complimentary to give a prospect.
  6. You can repurpose your newsletter articles into speeches, put in your blog, make into an eBook, and a real book!
  7. Publishing a regular newsletter is a great discipline builder.  This is good for you!
, trust me on this.  I can't begin to count how many times someone has hired me because I've been a consistent part of their life every month.  When will your first issue go out?! 


Now is your time, .2012 IS YOUR YEAR.
