Stop Throwing Spaghetti at the Wall! What's Really Sticking?
Show Notes

Sometimes… it just feels like you’re throwing a bunch of spaghetti at the wall. Again and again and again. 

And sometimes, you’re throwing fettuccine, elbow macaroni, and lasagna noodle at the wall when the spaghetti is already sticking just fine! 

Back away from the pasta, this episode will help you determine what’s sticking really when it comes to your business and visibility and how to let go of the tortellini weighing you down. 

In this episode, we review your current efforts and visibility, how to honestly self-evaluate what's working (and what isn't), and how to let go of things that aren’t sticking. 

  • Ideas on how to get all your marketing and visibility efforts in one place 
  • Using both metrics and gut to evaluate and assess
  • Asking yourself honestly whether or not what you're doing aligns with where you want to be going? What you want to be known for? And if you enjoy it? 
  • Examples on how I got back in the driver's seat of my own business after doing this activity 
  • Giving it a fair shake before declaring it's not working 
  • Ways to identify ineffective strategies 
  • Letting go with ease and action 
  • And more!
