How Murder Mysteries Can Help You Make More Money
The rainstorm here in LA was wild!
We navigated rushing water, mudslides, and rock slides all week.
I DO love the rain but I prefer it over time not overnight!
It was a fun week though!
I’m so excited to share that we launched a brand new Masterclass at ITN called…
If you’re ready to wake up to slow mornings, have time to drop the kids at school, and enjoy a workout, knowing you have clients who not only love to work with you but love to pay you, you’re gonna want to watch it.
There are so many takeaways, you’ll love it.
Since we were staying home more, we played lots of games as a family and started another at home murder mystery called “Murder in Miami”.
We’re obsessed with these mini adventures where we find clues and try to guess who did it!
It’s a great way to connect plus it helps with problem solving skills – win/win!
Speaking of problem-solving skills and thinking outside the box… it’s a great way to become SELF Made.
Think about it.
So often we get stuck in our limiting beliefs thinking we can’t do things because we only see ONE way to do them.
Things like… “I can’t make more money unless I get a raise at my 9 – 5.”
OR… “I can’t meet the love of my life because I work too much.”
OR… “I can’t make more sales because I don’t have enough followers on social.”
These are all just stories your Storyteller is telling to keep you safe and snuggled right where you are.
But you don’t want that! You want more!
There’s more than one way to feed a cat.
We’ll explore how you can craft the identity of someone who thinks outside the box as well as why this is important for your mental health.
Plus, I’ll share some strategies on how to think outside the box and grow your business to $10k – 100k months so you can enjoy slow mornings, take rainy days off, and still see payment notifications sliding into your inbox.
Because who doesn’t want that?
Ok, let’s get into it!
PS I know a thing or two about limitations. Check out the episode of Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu this week where I talked about how I took back my power after hitting rock bottom.
I share my deeply personal story of where I came from, how I wrote some pretty limiting stories, and how I turned it all around.
I think you’ll like it.
You Just Haven’t Found The Way That Works YET!
How many times have you stopped doing something because the ONE way you know to do it didn’t work?
Or maybe you tried two or three ways and then stopped.
Or maybe you stopped before you even started.
It’s kinda wild when you realize that EVERYTHING is possible.
You just haven’t found the way that works YET!
Think about it…
When babies first start trying to walk and they fall over once, they don’t say, “Fuck it! That didn’t work, I’m crawling for life!”
No, they get back up and try again… and again… and again.
Sometimes they hold onto something. Sometimes they hold on to you. But they figure it out.
Their IDENTITY is someone who is persistent, thinks outside the box, and doesn’t give up.
Which means… YOURS can be too.
If a baby can do it, so can you.
So, ask yourSELF… “How can I adopt the identity of someone who is a problem solver and thinks outside the box?”
Then do ONE THING every day as the person who has this identity.
It could be something as simple as taking a new route home or as fun as making a meal with random ingredients.
If you try something and it doesn’t work, try another way. Don’t give up.
If you’re feeling wild, try a second way.
Your brain will catch on and soon this will become a default way of BEing for you which means you’ll experience more ways that work and more wins by default!
I love that for you.
Placing Limitations To Protect Your Mental Health
When it comes to SELF Care, placing limitations on yourSELF and what’s possible for you can do a number on your mental health.
Constantly telling yourself that you’re not capable of something can erode your self-esteem over time AND…. You’ll start to believe it’s true.
And after awhile, you stop trying altogether.
SELF-imposed limitations can lead to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. And that’s not ok.
When you believe you can’t change your situation or achieve your dreams, how defeating is that?
YOU deserve better.
The truth is you’re perfectly capable of being, doing, and having anything you want.
So, kick the limitations to the curb, adopt your new identity, and proceed to bust down barriers, break down borders, and do the damn thing!
Thinking Outside Of The Box To Make More Money In Your Business
When it comes to making more money in your business, thinking outside the box is a MUST!
You will not be successful if you can’t. And that’s the hard truth.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again… if you fight for your limitations, you get to keep them.
BUT, if you adopt the identity of someone who is a natural problem solver, there are many strategies you can use to make more money.
Here are some examples…
- If your ads aren’t working, dial in the audience you’re selling to and get clear on their biggest pain point. What solutions are they searching for? Phrase your ads in a way that speaks to that pain point and your solution for it. OR stop with the ads and focus on building a strong personal brand through providing great content, writing SEO optimized blogs, or getting on podcasts to share your knowledge.
- If your sales page isn’t converting, focus on pleasure-based marketing more than pain-based marketing. Instead of poking the things that are wrong with them, focus on what their life could be like with your solution. It’s far more exciting!
- If your emails aren’t getting opened, choose subject lines that hook readers and leave them wanting more. Things like “she actually said this to me!” work every time (BUT only if it’s actually related to the copy in your email. Don’t use clickbait subject lines.)
What’s currently NOT working in your business and what can you try that’s different to make more money?
When you partner the WHO (your identity) with the HOW (strategy), you’ll see new options you never saw before.
And then, you can put them into action and see results!
