Whenever I ask a beginner: "What do you want to help people with?" what I'm secretly looking for in their answer is an END RESULT. But what do I get? An earful about THE PROCESS they want to use. 😴 🥱 Well guess what? Nobody cares about your PROCESS. Example #1: Do you care more about how to implement a special top secret webinar funnel & follow up email & text message sales sequence.... OR... Do you care more about THE MONEY it will bring you? 😉 💴 , me too. Example #2: Do you care more about adopting a special top secret diet & workout program that was originally formulated by ancient Chinese traditional herbalist healers... OR... Do you care more about THE FIT, SEXY, & VIBRANTLY HEALTHY BODY it will bring you? Exactly 💪. You care FAR more about the end result than any process. This is human nature. In fact, if someone cares enough about the end result, they'll pay for almost ANY process to attain it, no matter how weird or uncomfortable. (Yesterday I paid $40 just to take a 20 minute ice bath! Why? To reduce pain. 😂 Do I care about ice baths? No. In fact, I hate them. BUT I love the end result they provide me. I just signed up for 2 more sessions!) Remember this: People will always buy YOUR PROMISE, AKA the "End Result." if it's tied to something they truly value. Focusing on the process you want to use (especiallllllly as a beginner) is a massive mistake because nobody gives AF about your process...... they only care about the end result. And if you try to sell a process, you'll almost always fail. (The only exception to this is if you're already super popular and have a huge fan base... in this case, you can sell almost ANYTHING! But for mere mortals, read on...) Fun fact: I've sold over 2 million worth of coaching online and 95% of the people who sign up to work with me have NO IDEA about my process... All they know & care about is the end result I can help them achieve. Once they sign up, their first question is usually: "Ok cool, so how does this work? What's the process like?"
@Ted Carr Most people don't know or understand the real result in order to articulate it or market it. If I had read your 4 and only 4 results I would have struggled to see how it fit for me, but I totally get it now and how everyone's business somehow fits somewhere in those 4. For example, I have a sewing community, teaching people how to sew clothes specifically (IRL and online.) When I first started I would have probably said the result is people have learned to sew (i.e. they gained a useful skill they didn't have before and could make something with their two hands - from here to there, that is the transformation 😴) but after actually seeing what happens to people the real result is they feel empowered, confident, beautiful, comfortable in their own skin in ways they did not before and that confidence spills out to other areas of their life. So my business falls into the beauty result category but it ignites 1-3 for them. Often when people are getting started they struggle to have clarity on the actual result until they see it happen (or have someone help them figure it out.) One exercise for me was looking at myself as my first customer / member to reflect on this. In many ways I was my own first customer and member. If I had reflected on how it made me feel, how it changed my life, I could have arrived at that result a lot faster. I used to talk about / show the nuts and bolts of what you will learn in sewing (still do for a lot of purposes) but try to reveal the awesomesauce feelings and confidence that comes from it more. It took me like 4 years to figure this out. I had no coach, course, community or guru to help. I wish I had looked for one early on. I'm sure your VIP offer will save folks a ton of time, money, etc. It makes a huge difference to know the actual results.

@Ted Carr I think you could add one more category to the poll… not new but thinking of moving to Skool or not new but ready to revamp or start over (unless neither of those align with your interests in learning what folks want / are doing here!)
