Newsletter 30th April 2023: Be the odd one out 🤔 & free and low-budget training

by | Newsletters


When you’re a kid, it’s no joke to be the odd one out.

There’s safety in being part of the herd, in belonging to your peer group.

But as an adult, especially if you’re trying to make it in business, don’t do what everyone else does.

If you follow a pack of lemmings, you’ll also go over the cliff. 😱

Find your own path, your own style, your own market, and your own products.

If your info, courses, and offers are the same as everyone else’s, then the only differentiator is the price.

And you end up in a race to the bottom that you can’t win.

Have the courage to stand out and be uniquely you and you’ll find an audience and buyers who love you and what you do.

Besides, you’ll have much more fun doing your own thing than you will following the me-too crowd.  💖

And Kristie has a new 110 page blueprint showing you step by step how to do it.
