Minding Your Mindset Ep. 06 Free to Be Podcast with Branding and Business Coach Michelle Knight

On this episode of The Free to Be Podcast Ben Knight sits down with Michelle to ask her some questions he believes her audience would love to know.

I'm an open book, but it's much easier to let my walls down when speaking to my partner Ben Knight. That's why we thought it would be fun to have an intimate conversation, while sitting on the floor, about Minding Your Mindset.

Join us to learn more about:

• One of my favorite personal development practices

• The author who not only impacted my life but completely changed it

• My beliefs around time and my suggestions for creating more of it in your life

• What I learned from my own transitions and why I believe they are always changing

• Where I hope to be in 5 years!

• Who I'm currently crushing on in the entrepreneur world

• A glimpse inside what my postpartum experience really taught me

• What I REALLY think about authenticity!

In this episode, I not so subtly share about my upcoming 5-day challenge happening in November to Uncover and Own Your Story for a Bold, Captivating and Money-Making Brand!

Join me for this 5-day challenge where you'll uncover:

↠ How to grab attention online using your story and effectively use your values to resonate and attract your ideal clients online.
↠ How to become clear on the most powerful parts of your story that should be shared with your ideal client to start building authentic relationships that lead to consistent sales (plus storytelling pitfalls to avoid to safeguard your expert status).
↠ Why powerfully capturing your story is the essence of an unstoppable brand and how every piece of your business from your branding, ideal client, messaging and even your programs fall effortlessly into place.

The One Tool I Used to Scale My Business Past Six Figures
 

The One Tool I Used to Scale My Business Past Six Figures

SEPTEMBER 8, 2018

Reaching 6 figures and beyond in your business requires strong systems and organization. It's what's happening behind the scenes that supports online entrepreneurs in scaling their business, hiring team and having a bigger impact. In this post I'm sharing the one tool that transformed the way I organize my business.

Organization - you’re either really good at it or NOT, and I have to admit it’s something I was born with.

I remember organizing my mom’s closet and basement on the regular as a child, teen and young adult. 

I like to give a little credit to the fact that I’m a Virgo (shout out to my fellow Virgo’s), but I also know it’s because I don’t like my space or head to feel crowded.

You know the feeling right? You have a million thoughts running through your head, a million things to do, that you can’t seem to narrow in on the must-do task.

Ok, cool so I’m not alone.

Well, when it comes to being an online entrepreneur, a lack of organization and productivity can impact your business, and not in a good way.

I mean think about it, if you’re always wondering what you should be working on and when, and flailing from one thing to another without a clear plan of action, you’re not going to move very fast in the direction of your dreams.

When I started my business, I was a loyal supporter of the good ‘ole pen to paper planner. I would write my tasks every Sunday night in my planner to prepare for the week ahead until I didn’t.

I got to a point in my business where I couldn’t have my planner with me at all times and would often forget to write my thoughts, etc. down promptly. Ever seen those planners that have months missing? That was me.

So I switched. But before I share what I’m now using in my business I want to chat about the importance of organization and planning out your tasks (yes, day-to-day all the way to a year in advance).

THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING

When I started my business, I was just trying to get by, so if you are reading this and thinking, “Yeah, Michelle that is so me right now!” then know that I totally get it.

But, eventually I just felt like I was spinning my wheels, I needed a better way to look at the big picture if I was going to keep moving forward, but I still was reluctant to take action.

Then I heard something that completely changed the way I looked at planning and organization, and that’s coming from a Virgo. I listened to a podcast in which they chatted about building a 7-figure business. They said, and I’m totally paraphrasing here, “If you want a successful 7-figure business start treating your business like it now!”

What? Mind blown! If I want to get to 7-figures, if you want to get to 6 or 7-figures, then we better start treating our businesses the same way they do.

And let me tell you, they are not flying by the seat of their pants.

ENTER TRELLO

I knew I needed a system to not only organize my day to day tasks but a way to organize every aspect of my business, including my workflows for content, client onboarding and working with my team.

I absolutely fell in love with the possibilities with Trello, the fact that it was free (I mean YES) and how visual the platform was.

As someone who loves a good post-it note, it felt like a much more efficient and eco-friendly way to organize my ideas.

Since using Trello, I’ve been able to create multiple boards including but not limited to:

  • My Brand
  • My Weekly Schedule
  • My Big Picture Goals
  • Blog Workflow
  • Podcast Workflow - Subscribe to The Free to Be Podcast
  • Client Onboarding
  • Content Creation Strategy

Oh, and the occasional personal board (in fact I used Trello to organize my checklists and to-do list for my trip to Paris and Iceland).

*Please note this is an affiliate because as the blog post suggests, I absolutely LOVE IT!

One of my absolute favorite ways to use Trello, besides the weekly schedule, is to organize my big goals. I feel like this is what was holding me back when using the planner, I couldn’t see the big picture.

Now I have a designated board which easily shows my HUGE quarterly goals, my ideas for passion projects and a breakdown of what I’m working on and when in my business.

It’s changed the game for me and contributed to me hitting multiple 6-figures in my business this year.

Did I mention it’s free? Ok, cool!
