Get Out of Corporate
“I know in my heart I’m supposed to be doing something else. I want to get out of corporate and I’m not one of those people that’s just going to leap and hope the net’s going to appear. I want to grow my existing business while working full-time so that I can leave corporate knowing that I have a solid foundation. I work hard, I take action and I’m open to new ideas– I just need to be shown what to do!”
Does this sound like you?
- You work full-time or part-time with a steady income and are looking to grow your side business
- You are positive, visionary and open-minded yet practical
- You are Action-oriented, “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it”
- You’ve made some money in your side business, but you can’t figure out how you’re going to grow it to support yourself financially
- You want to leave your job with a solid foundation and the fundamental business skills to be successful (marketing, sales & cash flow)
Who You Are…
You have a dream in your heart. Something you are totally passionate about and feel called to do. And chances are, it’s always been there. When you’re not worried about what other people might think about you, and you’re not stressing out over your job or other distractions, you know that working for someone else really isn’t for you. Deep down, you really want to HELP people.
You know you were not meant to waste your time in a cubicle. So, on the side, you’ve been working on your THING. Your service that helps people, that gets great results. You’re even making some money doing it! But you’re not quite sure how to grow this little hobby and grow it into a “real” sustainable business. When you try to do the math, the numbers just don’t add up. You’d have to work with hundreds of clients to replace what you’re making now. Or you’d have to work 15 hours a day, 6 days a week. Or you’d have to be featured on Oprah, or something.
Still, you are definitely an action-taker. You know you want out of corporate. You know have a great service and you’ve already proved that people WANT what you have and are willing to pay for it. Yet– you’re still stuck in that cube. You’ve hit a wall. You’re not sure how to really make consistent income doing what you’re passionate about.
It hurts your heart to not be able to live this vision you have. The one that’s on your vision board. The one you keep talking to your friends about. And sometimes, you even get emotional because you’re not sure what to do next. You’re frustrated. You may even look at other people who are successful and think: why not me? I want to leave, I know I can do it – I just want to be shown HOW to make enough to income consistently to support myself.
What Your Issues Tend to Be
You know that you want to work in your side business full-time, but the numbers don’t add up and while you’re make some money, it’s not consistent enough for you to live on. Your issues tend to be that you’re not clear on what you do next. And you’re stuck in “tinkering” mode – meaning you spend a lot of time behind a computer, updating a website, or creating a logo or designing your business cards, or writing a blog.
But you’re not actually making sustainable income. You feel like you don’t have control over what comes in and when. So you think you’ll finally start to make money after you…
- Build the perfect website
- Get featured in the New York Times, etc..
- Buy ads to create a huge temporary spike in traffic to your site
- Get interviewed on TV
- Write my first book
- Get more followers on social media
- Get the perfect branding or logo
- Launch my ebook/webinar/teleseminar
- Fill my workshop
- Follow what those internet marketing gurus are telling me
- And on and on and on….
You might be taking online courses and investing in group programs, trying to apply what you’re learning on your own but the cash flow isn’t quite there yet. So you have to hang on to your job, or part time job in order to make ends meet.
There are so MANY promises out there, some of them sound good, others sound a little too “hype-y” for you, but it’s hard to decide what the right direction is for you. You know great businesses take time to grow and with the right FOUNDATIONS in place you set yourself up for sustainable, consistent income for years to come. (If only you could peek underneath the hood and find out exactly HOW on earth it’s done.)
And maybe, just maybe if you’re honest with yourself, underneath it all you might actually be afraid to charge what you’re really worth. You might be afraid no one will pay for it. Or people will be mad at you. Or that you’re not sure you can actually deliver results. Or you don’t want to be all sales-y or business-y with people.
Okay, THIS is What You Might Need Right Now. (Stop reading if you don’t want to know the truth.)
You need to hire someone to work with you privately and give you the step-by-step proven training to help you create paying clients that pay you what your service is really worth. (Could be me, could be anyone, but for sure you’re going to need some private coaching to make sure you’re on the right track.) I believe that you can’t do it alone. (And I love trying to figure things out myself!) I avoided this for three and a half years until I realized that you cannot cobble a business together with online or group programs where you can hide out without individual attention on YOU and YOUR business.
You’ll need someone who’s actually been where you are and did it, (not someone who’s repeating the same information you have too, but is running around pretending to have a business.)
You also need to create packages or programs that solve real problems for people. And you’re going to need to learn how to have conversations with people (yes, actually like on the phone, sometimes with people who already know you!) that turn into paying clients. (This takes training and practice, but it is so possible.) Plus you’re going to have to price your services appropriately so that the numbers make sense and you can feel confident leaving corporate. It’s not longer a scary risk – it’s a calculated risk based on past performance.
Plus, you’ll need to figure out how to find ideal, high paying clients so that you can financially prepare yourself to leave corporate. (Oh, and you’re going to need a way to track your numbers so that you can tell exactly how much you need to make in order to leave. No one teaches this stuff!! Not even the “gurus!!!”)
Sound like a lot?! Sure is when you’re doing it all by yourself. But with a step-by-step plan in front of you, we do it together. I help you to start with the MOST important steps and ignore the rest. A great coach is actually more like a great editor: showing you what to cut out, so that you can focus only on what works. Together, I can show you the same steps I took (and take my clients through) to go from having a side hobby making a few hundred dollars to $50K in revenue in just shy of one year.

Jill helped me shift my focus from years of struggling to pay off debt, to how I can increase my revenue. She honed in on where I can improve my skills to generate more business, by fine tuning my consultation process. That week, I met with a prospective client and landed the project. As Jillian suggested, I was direct, mindful and authentic and, even surprised myself, when I asked for a higher rate and landed a $15,000 client!
It really was amazing and I couldn’t do it without you! THANK YOU!!
