Speaker:

use it to scale you're in the right place. Let's dive in. Hey,

Speaker:

everybody, welcome to today's episode, I am so thrilled that

Speaker:

you're here. In today's episode, I want to talk about trusting

Speaker:

your intuition. So often, if you are in a situation and something

Speaker:

doesn't feel right, it's because something isn't right. I was

Speaker:

working with a client the other day and she was struggling

Speaker:

because she was working with a different agency. And she just

Speaker:

had this feeling that her cores her program, her launch, other

Speaker:

things weren't actually going to happen the way that she wanted

Speaker:

them to happen. She just had this feeling that they either

Speaker:

didn't know what they were doing, they didn't have it all

Speaker:

together, or they didn't actually do the work that she

Speaker:

had paid them to do. And that was what her gut was screaming

Speaker:

at her about. And she said, Well, I'm going to trust the

Speaker:

process, I'm gonna trust that these people know what they're

Speaker:

talking about. Because otherwise they wouldn't be out selling

Speaker:

their products. And so she trusted the process instead of

Speaker:

her gut. And you know, lo and behold, three months later,

Speaker:

right, as she's ready to launch, she realizes that there's

Speaker:

nothing there. They haven't created anything that they've

Speaker:

promised. They haven't done the activities that were required to

Speaker:

make sure the launch happened. And she just said, you know, in

Speaker:

hindsight, I just had this feeling. And so my friends, I

Speaker:

want to tell you, if you have that feeling, if there's just

Speaker:

something that doesn't feel right, then make sure that you

Speaker:

listen to your gut, you act on it, and that you use it as part

Speaker:

of your decision making process as you're running your business.

Speaker:

Because here's the reality is that most of the time, if you're

Speaker:

getting that feeling, it's actually legit, right? It's not

Speaker:

just worrying, or having anxiety or whatever else, right? It's

Speaker:

really, there just is something that doesn't feel right. So

Speaker:

here's the thing, let me give you some tactical advice around

Speaker:

this. Because I think there's the feeling and trusting the

Speaker:

feeling and knowing that you need to dig in and maybe get

Speaker:

some additional details. And then there's the how do you make

Speaker:

the right decisions. So you don't get in a position where

Speaker:

you're not sure whether or not things are working, or things

Speaker:

are not working or what's happening. And the very first

Speaker:

advice, piece of advice I can give you is make sure that

Speaker:

there's a plan. Anyone who says, hey, it's a you know, this many

Speaker:

step process. And, you know, let's do a kickoff call. And

Speaker:

then we're going to go off, and we're going to do our thing, and

Speaker:

then we'll come back when we're done. Those people do not have a

Speaker:

solid process for how they do their work. So if somebody comes

Speaker:

to you, you're working with them. And there's not a project

Speaker:

plan. There's not an overall strategy, where they're asking

Speaker:

you lots of questions upfront to find out your goals, your needs,

Speaker:

and the different things that you're trying to accomplish, and

Speaker:

then creating a plan around those, then that is a really

Speaker:

good indication that you're going to run into some problems.

Speaker:

Because what you don't want to do is hire an agency who's just

Speaker:

sort of either winging it, or they haven't figured out process

Speaker:

yet. And so they don't have enough experience to be able to

Speaker:

tell you step by step exactly what's going to happen. And I

Speaker:

don't know about you, but I want to work with experts who have

Speaker:

their systems, their process, and the various ways that they

Speaker:

work with people dialed in. And so if you are paying a service

Speaker:

provider, you're paying an agency or even just a

Speaker:

consultant, you need to ask the right questions, and make sure

Speaker:

that you're asking them from a big picture standpoint.

Speaker:

So if you're asking questions, and they're either not answering

Speaker:

you or they're giving you sort of a vague answer that you don't

Speaker:

understand, then again more sort of fodder for the fact that

Speaker:

maybe they're not exactly sure what they're doing. And they

Speaker:

don't have a repeatable process that they help their customers

Speaker:

with. So hopefully, you can take this episode and just think

Speaker:

like, we're in your life in your business relationships and

Speaker:

whatever else is there sort of that gut check that needs to

Speaker:

happen? Where you need to make sure that somebody that you're

Speaker:

working with actually is doing what they say they're doing? And

Speaker:

when somebody says, Just trust me, are they trusting or use?

Speaker:

Are they saying, trust me with a actionable plan laid out? Are

Speaker:

they saying trust me, and then they're gonna go off and do

Speaker:

something and you don't know exactly what it is? That their

Speaker:

process is? Those are, you know, indications that maybe your gut

Speaker:

is right, that something is not right. And make sure that you

Speaker:

trust that, then are you asking the right questions, right, so

Speaker:

trust your gut. Then second is, are you asking the right

Speaker:

questions? Do you know what questions to ask if you don't

Speaker:

know what questions to ask, you need to find an expert who can

Speaker:

help you with the big picture. So you can ask the right

Speaker:

questions. When we do our VIP course, launch days, we

Speaker:

literally map out the full process from the sales and

Speaker:

marketing automation to the course and fulfillment,

Speaker:

automation and beyond. So you are able to ask the right

Speaker:

questions, you're able to see what the full process is and ask

Speaker:

the questions of people. So somebody says, Yeah, sure, I can

Speaker:

do that. It'll be this many hours and and in this much

Speaker:

money. Are you both on the same page? Are you speaking apples to

Speaker:

apples? Or are you assuming that they're going to do everything

Speaker:

top to bottom, and they're assuming they're just going to

Speaker:

do one little piece, right, make sure that you have that big

Speaker:

picture and that you know, what your playbook is, what your game

Speaker:

plan is before you go and find somebody to implement. And

Speaker:

again, all of those things will help you as you're navigating

Speaker:

through this whole process of putting your business online, or

Speaker:

whatever it is that you're trying to accomplish. So first,

Speaker:

trust your gut. Second, make sure that you have a big overall

Speaker:

plan, where you know how the big picture looks. So you can find

Speaker:

the right people to execute on the big picture. But don't just

Speaker:

hire executors without having that that overall playbook, that

Speaker:

overall game plan for how you can move forward. One, one does

Speaker:

not come before the other right. So you have to have the

Speaker:

strategy, the big picture, and then you can put the right

Speaker:

pieces into play. So you can build your online program, your

Speaker:

online business or whatever it is you're trying to accomplish.

Speaker:

Alright, there you go. That is my course building tip for you
