  1. Did you know? 87% of entrepreneurs don’t even make six figures. Because they never learned how to stand out with a story that inspires others to say “YES!” 
  2. There is REAL GOLD in this mess-to-success method because everyone loves to hear stories of triumph and overcoming challenges. It permits others to do the same.
  3. The easiest way to create empathy and connect with your ideal audience & partners is by sharing your story (and remember to ask for theirs).
  4. Here’s how to easily craft your mess-to-success story in 5 simples steps:
  5. Success today (snapshot)
  6. Wasn’t always like this
  7. Rock bottom into a turning point
  8. Getting better & people starting to ask for help
  9. Back to success today and here’s how I help people
  10. [TAKE ACTION] Because we’re all about building your business —13 minutes at a time — start thinking about your hard-earned wisdom and write it down (or dictate). Please share in the comments below. Now, mark your calendars so you don’t miss an episode!
