At the REV UP Accelerator Retreat, fast forward your business + get re-energized to generate the revenue you really want!

Being a woman entrepreneur is amazing…
except for making money

You work hard to attract clients. But marketing is complicated, tedious and exhausting. You aren’t generating the revenue you really want.

You just want to help others, do what you enjoy, and get well paid. It’s easy to feel discouraged and frustrated. 

Time for a better way.

A simpler way.

A smarter way.

But first…

I’ve been there

After I left a decade-long corporate career with AOL and became an entrepreneur I struggled with lots of doubts about what I was doing and how. I spent a lot of time and money – too much – learning and trying to find answers.  I gained a lot of useful knowledge and used it with some success as an author of 3 books, keynote speaker, radio show co-host, mentor, and panel facilitator. 

But, I still felt frustrated that I wasn’t meeting my goals, that I wasn’t reaching my true potential.

Frustration can be good when it opens you up to doing things differently. Through meeting the right coach with the right experience and the right fit, I started to do things differently. .

I started to narrow my focus on the most important activities to grow my business — and let the rest go.

I became far more confident about how to generate more leads, better prospects, and create more clients with practical, specific marketing and selling strategies. 

I started to consistently reach out and engage in activities that mattered the most to making an impact on others AND my bank account.

With these simple, powerful shifts, I began to experience my biggest revenue days. I was starting to experience my real potential. My red cape was flying high and it felt freaking amazing!

I knew I had to inspire and show how other women entrepreneurs do the same.

The REV UP Accelerator Retreat is YOUR time to get the clarity, confidence and simplified plan to generate real revenue

August 20-22, 2020

Rustburg, VA (near Lynchburg, VA)

Together, we will work through these 7 simple, powerful steps to get your red cape flying higher than ever!

Chances are, you and I have already have had a chat. But, if not, let’s schedule one ASAP. Just use the button below!

A common challenge for women entrepreneurs is that we see a lot of problems and want to help everyone. First thing we will do is help you be super clear on THE biggest, most valued problems you solve with your products or services. 

Next you need to know for sure who you most impact with your products or services. Using a series of questions you will laser in on understanding your best buyers. And what to do about those who are outside your sweetest spot. 

It’s common to have so many ideas about how to grow your business that you try to pursue them all and don’t get enough traction in any of them. To sort through which ones you should focus on and which to let go, you will learn some fundamentals that are too often lost in the sea of sexy marketing techniques, including:

  • A simple, powerful, savvy way to get prospects to say “yes” to talking with you
  • How to easily speak (and write) in ways that prospects believe you totally get them (because you do!)
  • 3 practical strategies to get more and better referrals without being cheesy

Then, using out your new clarity about the biggest problems you solve and for your best clients, you will create a simplified plan of your top products or services and a short list of specific Revenue Generative Activities (RGAs) have the most impact.

Consistently doing high impact RGAs will be your business growth super power! Learn the simple, powerful strategy of putting your Simplified Plan to work every single day. And, the mindset you need to stay on track.

Do the work of implementing your Simplified Plan and you will be rewarded. It’s even more exciting when you forecast your revenue over the next 12 month to see what’s possible! That’s what you will do with your own revenue forecast spreadsheet.

How do you know if the elements of your Simplified Plan are working? You will determine a simple measurement to evaluate how well your RGAs are working. Plus you will decide the frequency and format for you to review, learn and adjust your plan to keep it effective.
