Ep. 82: Get the High Vibing Energy You Need to Attract Exactly What You Want Out of Life

 

Your energy is created through a process. You have to cultivate your energy from inside.

 

I get questions all the time about how I have so much energy. For a long time I thought I don't know I guess I just do. But a friend of mine encouraged me not to just brush past that question and really consider it. There's a process of how I create such a high vibing personality. It comes from the habits I have, my beliefs, my philosophies. I realized that if I have this process of creating high vibing energy then everyone could create their own process too.

It's not a big secret. Or it doesn't have to be. In this episode, I break down what beliefs, philosophies, and habits I have that I believe help build up my own energy.

Doing Instagram giveaways helps with my marketing. It helps my brand and gets my page seen by the people I know need to see it.

Ep. 80: The Importance of Community, Providing Good Service, Achieving Your Goals, and a Strong Team

 

"If we can just strive to have every day be good, that's a win. And on the exceptional days, we'll just have so much more to be thankful for. But on the days that are good, we can be proud of ourselves that we did our best." MEI-CHA.

  

Running a successful business takes a lot of work. It's hard. Surrounding yourself with a good community makes it SO much better. But in a predominantly female industry, things can get tricky. As well as women bond with other women, tension can still build up and relationships can get messy. 

In this episode, I talk to some OG PMU Boss Babes: Lilian Su, Kimberly Crider, and Michelle Essenburg of MEI-CHA. We talk about how these three women work so well together along with the rest of their team and the importance of aligning your community, services, and goals to run a successful female-owned beauty business.

 

 

Here are the episode highlights:

Ep. 79: The Real Reason Why Some Clients Never Come Back

 

The REAL reasons why clients GHOST you. Why do some of them disappear and never come back? Not even for a touch-up? 

 

It can be really discouraging when clients ghost you. Has that ever happened to you before? You thought you had a great experience with a client, you thought you gave her a great service, you hugged at the end of your appointment, she tipped you, but when it came time to get her back in your studio for her follow up or her touch up...silence. Either she never returned your calls or she came up with some excuse for not returning and then you never heard from her again!

Yeah. You were ghosted. I'm sorry. It can be hard when clients won't give us straight-up reasons for not returning and not referring us. Referrals drive business. In this episode, I share two stories from a former client and from a friend that will give you some insight into why some clients never come back. If you've ever been ghosted or you want to prevent that from happening,...

Ep. 77: Strangers to Clients―How to Create New Clients in Seven Steps

 

How do you turn a complete stranger into a client? Better yet, a raving fan?

That's what I want for you.

 

I want you to find somebody (or somebodies) who is going to be your client for life and refer a lot of people. But remember they all start out as strangers.

So let's break it down. 

All sales is psychology. That's all it is. And the same psychological pattern needs to happen when a stranger chooses you to be their artist as when you choose to buy anything else.

The question that your soon-to-be clients are always looking to be answered is this: Can you help?

Don't you want your clients to feel like you can help them? You should! That's how you build your clientele.

In this episode, I teach you how to get strangers to feel that trust with you even before they pick up the phone to call you.

You have complete control over how you're perceived in many ways.

Maybe not complete, but I would say you can control 95% of what's out there about you by creating content...

And there’s a whole thought process to it too! Ayo and Portia have been honing that skill for years, and I’m so happy they came onto the Pretty Rich Podcast to spill all the tea on what they look for in a conference speaker. It is gold.

If you’re wanting to be a conference speaker but don’t know if you’re qualified or how to even be qualified, you’ve come to the right place!
