I’m submitting my offer for Mariah’s Skool sprint and would love to know which of these descriptions feels the most enticing. My community— The Multi-Passionate Mastery Club— is a space for multi-passionate creatives across various industries to come together and celebrate all of who they are, while accessing curated resources and diving deeper into the topics explored on the Multi-Passionate Mastery podcast. The description needs to be SHORT and sweet. Could you vote for the one that would make you want to learn more if you heard Mariah announce it? Thank you!!
I love predictions - I love to think about them myself and I LOVE to hear what other people think is coming in terms of trends, shifts, and where we're headed as a community and the creator space as a whole. So.... what are *your* predictions for the creator space, online biz, etc for 2024 and beyond? 🔮 Let's share in the comments!
This is the introductions thread. Say hi, tell us what your business is all about! In your introduction, answer these 3 questions: ➡️ What is your name? (feel free to share pronouns if you’d like!) ➡️ What is your business or platform? Who do you serve, what do you sell, etc ➡️ If you were to host your dream party, and the sky was the limit, what would the theme be? We can’t wait to meet you!
@Angel Hill there is a podcast call Human Design that’s awesome. It’s hosted by Jenna Zoe. There is also an app she designed that is an excellent tool for getting started. It’s called “My Human Design.”
This was an article I wrote for LinkedIn yesterday which shows that even governments are starting to embrace the use of AI for chat bots but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Sumal to launch AI chatbot for Britons to pay taxes that's right Artificial Intelligence is playing the taxman. Imagine a future where fulfilling tax obligations and pension access is a chat away. UK's chancellor, Rishi Sunak, is molding this future with an AI chatbot. Bringing AI into public services isn't new but signals a leap towards tech-savvy taxation. A chat with the bot, and Brits can swiftly clear their taxes and pensions. Exploring further, the underlying development reveals this has potential personalised service without the need for staff interaction. The AI chatbot, fed with your financial history, will serve customised recommendations and timely reminders. Bid farewell to 'one-size-fits-all' government services for good. This is far beyond convenience, it's a revolution in public service interaction. It's making services accessible and user-friendly. Data privacy and security concerns are inevitable but can be tackled with rigorous measures that are to be put in place. The journey to digital-first public service may be rough and won't be without problems, but the potential gains are huge. So, what does this mean for professionals and your average tax-paying Britian? Is this the dawn of efficient, personalised government service? If this excites you or you are considering using AI-powered chatbots in your own business, let's discuss.
I am FINALLY "cleaning up" my list by removing cold subscribers who don't raise their hand to stay on our list. Over the next week or so, I am sending 3 emails to a huge segment of subscribers who haven't opened our emails in a while. Giving them one last chance to let us know they'd like to stay on our newsletter... Then we're removing them! I always thought this process would be super scary. I avoided it for so long (literally this has been on my list for years, and has been at the top of my list for 9 months while I diligently ignored it and bumped it to next month 10 times). But now that I'm doing it, it's really not that bad! I wrote the 3 emails. Created a "link trigger" in Convertkit for people who want to stay on to click. And I sent the first one out this morning. Would it be helpful to you all to see the emails I sent after I'm done with this process? Personally I found that every example email copy and template I found online wasn't that great and sounded really formal/awkward, so I wrote my own to match our brand voice. Happy to share them as I'm sending these over the next week if it's helpful as an example!
Hi all!!! I'm curious how everyone prioritizes rest while running your businesses. As a business owner currently in limbo (I never closed my business down completely and still have a few lingering clients that I work with), I know for a fact that my ignoring rest and self-care led me to this place. I'm currently trying to figure out where to go from here, but I'm nervous I'll fall into the same traps again. So what do you do to prioritize rest and take care of yourself as a business owner? I'm also very interested in doing things more passively, as well as with a small team or even just on my own. So any tips would be AMAZING.
@Amanda Creek oh perfect I hope you enjoy it! I have a podcast episode about Human Design too if you want to learn a few basics. My relationship with rest shifted pretty drastically once I started living by my HD. I’ll link it below. Glad you’re getting so many great tips here on this thread. :) https://multipassionatemastery.com/human-design-with-krystal-woods/
Do you think it's necessary to go live during launches and flash sales? I'm in Profit Architecture and starting out with the flash sale for the course I already have, and I'm wondering if the live aspect is absolutely necessary? I just really hate going live. I'm an awkward introvert...lol...and being live just isn't my thing! I'd love to know all of your opinions on the topic! Thanks :)
If you've seen any of my other posts, you know I have several businesses. I do have support (WHEW!), but there's still a lot. I ran into a time period when I let 2 of the businesses be neglected. No weekly emails, no social media, NOTHING. Just paused. I'm working to delegate more and plan ahead, and I'm excited about that! Until that's 100% sorted, I've had to really stay focused and on schedule. So I'm pretty stoked that today I got out the weekly email for the business I *most* want to grow, out the third week in a row. AND... I've planted the seeds for a mini launch incoming. AND... I'm understanding the dynamics much better about why I've delayed so much. AND... I've streamlined a lot of the business that overtook my life. SO MUCH GOOD HAPPENING! #fearlessceochallenge
I'm working through the content for my raw foodie website (Uncooking101) and am SHOCKED by the difference of the weeks when I sent out a weekly email! Earlier this year, I was putting in too many hours at the food cooperative where I'm the founding director, and I just didn't make the commitment to emails as usual. You can probably guess exactly which weeks I emailed! I mean, it's SHOCKING really! I also analyzed last year's big days, and I can see that the posts with "top 10" recipes or themes, they got the most attention. Actually, those got about TRIPLE the website visits as a regular email with a single recipe! I mean, wow! Meanwhile, I'm making bigger decisions about what I want to offer next, and there's a mix happening. There's the SOUL side -- what am I excited about? What do I feel drawn to offer? And then, how do those urges fit together with my short-, mid-, and long-term goals and direction? As a multi-passionate entrepreneur, I have to really pick a focus for each spurt to avoid burnout. So that's what I'm looking at today. ALL the micro pieces and then zoom zoom zooming out to the macrocosm of my full ecosystem of products, services, and connections. :) Anyone else in here a hard-core multi-passionate? How do you pick your focus for the moment? (I know you are dear @D'Ana Joi!!!) #fearlessceochallenge
@Hannah Szabo Hi Hannah! Yes my membership is hosted on Skool! It also acts as the community for my coaching clients but they get access for free (a bit of a hybrid strategy). Here’s the link if you want to take a peek at it: www.Skool.com/mpmclub
So, @Mariah Coz has a private AND a public podcast. I've been pondering a podcast for awhile, but now I actually finally have that feeling like I REALLY want to go for it. Just ordered a mic and everything! (It's coming Friday; If I weren't out of town that day, I'd be WAITING by the box, haha!) I'd like to go ahead and record some episodes next week for BOTH. Just BOOM. GOOO! But... how do you decide on all the things? Which topics are private vs. public? How do you narrow down and name it? I also am not a single-niche kinda gal... - I started a zero-waste organic food cooperative and have been called on as a green living expert by local papers, the Boston Globe, the New York Times, etc... So even though I'm not "famous" for it, I have a lot of eco insights and could see that being an important topic to bring in sometimes. - I've had a foodie business since 2008, teaching about raw food lifestyle. (Actually I used to own a restaurant, managed a restaurant group, and was the teaching chef at a raw food restaurant where we had TONS of regular classes. I'd fill up the whole restaurant with class participants! I love the food business, but I hate the waste. I got us composting where I was involved and connected with a reusables program for take-out...) - I build websites, and this is actually my main income, but my main WEBSITE is practically non-existent because I get so many clients from word of mouth. I do like talking about websites! And building them. I feel like I get the fun of launching a business, but someone else does the work. haha! - I've created dozens of online courses over the years and LOVE teaching. (I used to even be an English teacher for the Department of Education + later owned an English language school in Brazi. That was briefly, though, because then I was pregnant and came back to the USA!) - Did you guess that I'm "multi-passionate"? So there is THAT! - I'm really good at just GOING FOR THINGS and helping other women (primarily) to do the same. So it's funny, all of this comes together with a passion for helping women to birth and grow their SOUL Business. The business that's a calling, and you literally want to make the world a better place with it. You can see how it would help to solve a real problem that exists, and you dive in with your whole heart full of passion. Because I've started so many things and am good at both doing AND delegating, I can make things really simple. I don't do anything with it but bought the domain "Soul Business Doula" because that's how I see myself... like that woman who has been there and done that and knows how to make the birthing process less painful.
My private podcast is for my coaching clients only so it acts as a supplement to my course and includes: Foundational trainings Bonus masterclass recordings Coaching call replays + a client only podcast series that I’m launching that will give them more tools to utilize when it comes to their mindset as multi-passionates At first I was going to do the series publicly, but then I realized it was low hanging fruit to keep that more exclusive and private. I can do a sneak peek on my public feed later when enrollment for my program is open as an incentive to join and get access! So I guess start by brainstorming ALL if your ideas and then see if there is a mini series that could lend well to a private feed. You can also think of the private feed as extensions or deep dives on your public facing episodes. Mariah has a bunch of ideas for this in one of her pod episodes actually AND this is a great question for the private podcast haha, pretty meta. You could also it Q&A style… like invite email subscribers to opt in for the private pod for Q&A episodes.
I'd love some ideas on how all of you with all-in-one platforms use Skool to complement your all-in-one without over-complicating your system. I use Kajabi. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
I use Kajabi to host my courses and for my checkout/payment system for my coaching program and digital products and I am using Skool as my membership community host for my coaching program/stand-alone community for folks who ONLY want the membership component without any coaching etc. It works fine! All the payments go to Stripe anyways so that’s not an issue. Using Skool’s checkout system actually makes it really simple I think. What I am NOT doing is migrating my Kajabi hosted content to Skool. They don’t have native video yet and also I am not that into it to the point where I want ALL of my content here. So I’m using for community and the content in that community only (which is what I think it’s really great for!). Hope that helps!!
@Alissa Nagel-Esposito Ooh I need to check this out re: Kajabi community! My course is hosted there but my community is on MN. I’d rather have it all in one place moving forward. NEED TO GET ON THIS BETA LIST FOR THE APP.
In this episode, I am taking you behind the scenes of my free, public community “Creator Party”. I’m sharing my strategy for growing the community, why I am investing in growing a *free* community in my business, who the community is for and what I want it to be about and become, why I chose to make it public instead of private, and more! Listen to the episode here with the show notes, or find it on your favorite podcast app by searching and subscribing to The Mariah Coz Show podcast. In this episode: - Why I have decided to host a free community for everyone to join, even thought that wasn’t in my original “plan” until recently - My goals and vision for the community and why I think it will take some time to get there - Why I landed on the name “Creator Party” and what it means to me - All the fun things you can find inside the community - free courses, resources, updates, support, deeper discussions on each podcast episode and so much more! - How the structure of Skool makes the group really fun with points, levels, a leaderboard with rewards and more! - Why I decided to make the community “public” instead of “private” and the major differences - What strategies I’ll be testing for growing the community over time - Questions to ask yourself if you’re considering hosting a free community to create a space where you audience can have more conversations, and go beyond the “one way street” communication of social media platforms ➡️ Listen to the episode and let's have a discussion here in the comments! What questions do you have after listening? What are some fun things you would like to see in this community? Any surprising takeaways or a-ha's from this episode?
@Mariah Coz But for paying clients is your approach different? In your end can you easily see if someone is asking a program related question as a paying student vs someone who is in the community for free? If I had my paying clients in a free community I would def prioritize answering their questions. It would be different if it was a fully “free” community. Is the Q&A podcast more so where you focus on your student’s questions than in here?

This episode actually made me feel really good about how I structure and deliver my coaching program. >> Lessons are only ever as long as they need to be and are only videos when visual explanation is needed. >> Audio lessons are used for topics that don’t need a visual reference. >> all content has transcripts because accessibility is important. >> my coaching style is to ask my clients questions to make sure we are unpacking the heart of what they are wanting coaching on, so I wouldn’t do a Q&A podcast as it doesn’t allow for a two-way dialogue BUT we have 2 calls a month (bi-weekly) and I never exceed that. >> if I want to teach a bonus workshop, it REPLACES a coaching call and is not an additional thing on my calendar. >> I do include worksheets because I love to make them and for what I teach, my clients need to outwardly process. I make them fun and simple with beautiful design and always include color pages at the end. 🤣 >> I’m doing my first curriculum update a little over a year into the program based on what I’ve learned from working with my clients but I’m also using it as a time to relaunch at a higher price! >> I constantly tell my clients to use the free Kajabi app and listen to coursework like a podcast— no need to be “studious” unless that’s there vibe. >> I did launch a private podcast with core foundational trainings, replays of coaching calls and other bonuses— because as a client in other programs, I eat private podcasts up! >> the community is hit or miss in terms of engagement. Instead of removing it from my program, I’m launching a free Skool community that my clients will get first access to. I feel that having more people in there will bring the energy up and I will be strategizing about how to make sure my clients have a tag for their specific questions. >> I would Like to see more of clients actually go through the coursework, and I believe that raising my prices and speaking to my champagne clients will help— and I also understand that it’s NOT my responsibility to make anyone do the coursework, we are all adults. If they don’t do it, that’s on them. I send check ins via email every few months as a gentle nudge and that’s that… I like to focus on my clients who ARE showing up.
