The Art of Online Business Podcast

7 Lessons to 7-Figures

When I start talking about the different elements it takes to build a successful online business, other than using Facebook and Instagram ad strategies, I often get puzzled looks. I may be known for teaching how to successfully use ads to grow an online business and impact more people, but it took way more than just this for me to grow a thriving 7-figure business in less than 4 years.

On today’s episode, I’ll be going into what it took, including things like building a team, positioning myself as an expert, creating and launching courses, memberships and in-person events, and a whole lot more. I’ll be looking at the mindset shifts I had to master, and essentially what it’s taken for me to become the actual CEO of my business.

To create sustainable growth, it takes a more holistic strategy than most experts are using today. Yes, ads are important, but they’re really just one piece of the puzzle needed to get to that next level.

So today I’m going to be sharing 7 key lessons that I’ve learned on the way to 7-figures, and regardless of where you are in your own business, I know that these lessons are going to be super helpful for you.
