Inside My New Strategic Partnership
Your Biggest Vision
Season 3, Ep. 105
Introducing…. my new Strategic Partnership model!
It was SO important to me to create something that had a more accessible price point for entrepreneurs than my $75k 1:1 coaching package. As much as I believe in that, I also know that it’s not for everyone, and not appropriate for every season of life and business.
At the same time, I didn’t want to sacrifice the customization of a 1:1 container. I believe in individualized support SO much and it’s been a cornerstone of my coaching and Masterminds. The Strategic Partnership was birthed out of wanting to combine the two.
I spilled all the details about this in this podcast episode, including:
Why coaching my be frustrating, or even disappointing, you
The “types” of entrepreneurs I started seeing more of, who would benefit from this type of support
Exactly why and how the pricing structure is so different from coaching
Whether your need coaching calls vs. other types of support depending on your season of business

Leah Gervais: Hello everyone. Hi visionaries. It is Leah here once again, I apologize for the sound quality. I feel so bad. Really poor sound quality is like kind of a pet peeve of mine. There’s just not really any reason for it. But here I am using my AirPods to record this episode because my microphone is at my office and I have not been going into my office lately because I have been full-time momming it. And I really wanted to record this today.
So I am starting and ending with what I’ve got. So I am so excited to talk about what we’re here to talk about today, which is a brand new offer in my business, which is my strategic partnership offering. Not only do I wanna give you a behind the scenes of how this came to be and what you could expect and why I think it’s so amazing and who I think it’s for all of that.
I also want to answer some of the most frequent questions we have been asked since I shared the news of it earlier this week. So it’s only been a few days, but I’ve gotten some great questions and just clarifications.
So I wanted to talk a little bit more in depth about it. One of the things that I really love about this is that to my knowledge, of course, I can’t speak for everyone in the entire online business industry. I don’t know anyone else who’s offering something quite like this. What I’ve really seen over the years is business coaches just raise and raise and raise their rates, and that’s not meant to be judgmental. I’ve raised my rates, I’ve continued business coaching, and I really believe in the value of coaching. I really do. I’ve seen so much transformation in my own clients as well as in myself, having been coached the whole time in a variety of different ways.
I’ve had business coaches, but I’ve also had mindset coaches and I’ve had postpartum coaches and I’ve had life coaches and I’ve had money coaches and I’ve really tried to grow myself in so many different ways. And coaching can be so valuable. But I believe that the pendulum has swung a bit too far away from the actual tactical, practical strategies that go into smartly growing a business.
And because I haven’t really seen anyone else roll something out quite like this, it’s totally understandable. And I expected there to be just a lot of questions and a lot of different ways of thinking about this and people sort of wondering if it’s right for them. So I wanna talk about it as much as I can to clear any of that up. And I also wanna be transparent about how that can be challenging if you’re someone that is launching something that isn’t already like a molded offer.
Like if you’re doing something that’s in a newer niche or a different niche or a different way of offering something, you know, I went into this knowing that this was gonna take time for me to properly explain because it’s new. Uh, but if you are going to something and you haven’t really thought of it that way, give yourself the grace to know that it’s okay to talk about whatever it is that you’re offering for a while and be patient with your audience in doing that.
So anyway, just kind of a little, a little coaching note while we’re at it, but that is what I’m here to do. So the long and the short of it, in case you missed it, is that I have started offering what is called strategic partnerships. Uh, sort of instead of coaching, I’m still gonna be a business coach a little bit, but this is more what I’m going to be doing.
What is the difference? Strategic partnerships are the opportunity for you and I to partner together in building your business rather than me coaching you on how to build your business. So strategic partnerships have, uh, this difference of basically a lot more, uh, advising from me and clear direction from me and accountability from me coaching and what I’ve really seen work well with my clients is a lot more client led.
And, and it’s, I think that’s important. I know that that’s worked very well with me. You know, I think what makes a good entrepreneur is someone that makes quick decisions and follows her intuition and continues to take action. And a good coach supports her in doing those things. That said, there is a time and a place, and there’s also a person that sometimes benefits more from structure and a bit more practical breakdown of strategies rather than just being coached on the strategies she has thought of.
And really I’ve seen that kind of person in a few different stages. That person is someone that I’ve seen who has been paralyzed with all the information that is out there in online business. And honestly, this is worse than it was when I started.
So I don’t think I was as susceptible to it back then as I think a lot of people are now. It is unbelievable the amount of information we are given every single day. And this isn’t just unique to entrepreneurs, this is absolutely all of us. It’s, it’s, it’s awful if we’re being honest. There’s just nothing healthy about it. And especially if you are a vulnerable, newer entrepreneur who’s still trying to find her footing and doesn’t totally have the confidence in what she’s doing because you haven’t maybe proved yourself that it’s working yet, you’re very, very susceptible to the opinions of others or, uh, how others are running their businesses.
And it just can become way too much and then you can get into this place. Well, this is who I would say is the second type of person that I’ve really seen this strategic partnership be good for, which is the perfectionist. The person who maybe is experiencing a bit of that overwhelm I just talked about, and either and or also it or instead, is experiencing just paralyzing perfectionism to the point where they feel like, okay, I know some of the actions I need to take to move forward.
Like I know that I need to post on social media, or I know that I need a website, or I know that I need to set up a PayPal business account or whatever, but I am still unclear about unclear my messaging, or I’m still unclear about my ideal client, or I’m still unclear about the take the call to action of a piece of content.
And it just becomes like this task where you feel like you have to literally solve every problem in your business, who you help, what you do, how much you charge for it, what the product is, who the product is for, how you deliver it, what the product entails, all the content with it, uh, before you even like move forward with step one.
And that can be paralyzing and really do a number on your self-confidence because you’re kind of setting yourself up for an impossible task and then you’re gonna feel like because there’s no way you can complete it because it’s not really how you’re supposed, it’s not really the order in which it’s done. And then it kind of becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of you not feeling good enough for what you wanna do. And so then you don’t really do it and it just can get very ugly.
So, to summarize so far, I’m gonna keep going. I have seen people in the first, these are the first two categories of people I’ve seen lately that I think would benefit more from a strategic partnership than coaching.
First is the person who is paralyzed with choices almost has the paradox of choice. These so many different strategies and ways of running businesses and ideas that maybe they have so many ideas or they’re just seeing so many online all the time that it’s just like, oh my God here when I sit at my desk on Monday morning or at the beginning of the day or whatever, I can’t even, my head is spinning with where to start.
Second type of person is the perfectionist. I feel like in order to move forward with anything in my business, I have to have so many behind the scenes things answered, that it doesn’t make sense for me to move forward so I’m not moving forward and that I’m incredibly frustrated that I’m not getting results.
So that’s making me feel worse about myself, which is making me not move forward sooner or even more. And it’s just not happening.
Okay, the third type of person is a bit more advanced, a bit more, uh, you know, accomplished. I would say as an entrepreneur, someone who has, uh, seen results and working with clients, maybe even working with a team. Um, and maybe you’ve moved through perfectionism and you’ve moved through paralysis, but now you’re just unbelievably busy , or maybe not like unbelievably busy, like not so busy you can’t function, but you’re realizing that a lot of your time is going toward your clients or your team or you know, life some of the time. Like maybe you’re a parent or maybe you are planning a wedding.
You know, sometimes life has more demanding chapters than others, and you’re just realizing that the time that you need to spend on visioning what is next for you in your business, not only visioning it, but then coming up with a plan to execute on it just continually gets put to the bottom of the to-do list because of all the other obligations that you have.
If you don’t, uh, do your client work, you don’t get paid. If you don’t do work for your team, then you know you’re paying them for nothing. Um, if you don’t take care of your child, then you’re not doing your job as a parent. So all these other obligations feel more important, and in some ways they are because they’re kind of what keeps things going. But that’s a recipe for stagnation, that’s a recipe for stalling.
So if that’s you and you’re like, okay, no, Leah, like I’m not a perfectionist, I’ve moved past that, but I simply don’t have the time to lay out the strategies that will move me forward step by step and execute on them. And if you could just come in and like literally make a checklist for me or literally make a spreadsheet or a tracker or whatever so that every day instead of having to do the work of conceptualizing what’s next and planning it out and blank space, seeing it all, I literally just have to execute on it.
Like another thing off my to-do list, I have been there, I have been there a lot . And it makes a huge difference when you are able to just spend half an hour checking things off that are moving you forward instead of relying on having some sort of blank space and time to think about what you need to do when that’s just, that just doesn’t pop up at this phase in your life because of whatever you have going on. Okay?
So if you are any of those per people, oh, and then I guess maybe the fourth type. By the way, before I started this, I didn’t like having this whole type thing written out. I didn’t really have these so classified. So I’m sure there’s more types. I’m sure there’s some nuances in between. But this is just kind of like, as I was thinking about this and I’m thinking about specific clients that I have that I’m like, okay, I think that maybe strategic partnerships would be really helpful for you instead of, um, you know, you having like it some seasons in life, you just can’t carry, um, that vision work when you’re just either executing or you’re too paralyzed to vision.
Um, and so the final category that I was going to mention is the person who does it, who just feels like they know they’d be successful if they just knew what to do. Like if someone just told them what to do, they’re good executors, they’re hard workers, they have attention to detail, they can get what they need to be done, done. They’re not perfectionists, they can move forward. They just literally don’t know what to do and why would you, right? We don’t, we’re not, we don’t come out of the womb knowing, digital kidding.
We don’t come out of the womb knowing payment processors. We don’t come out of the womb knowing how to run paid ads. Like that’s actually very complicated. So if you just want someone to spell it out for you, I’m your girl, I can spell all day. I will say for that last type of person that is a little bit, I’m a little bit more careful in how I work with that type of person.
Because the truth is that if you have that mindset of like, Leah, I’m a hard worker, just tell me what to do and I’ll be a good entrepreneur. That is often a sneaky, uh, employee mindset that is often the mindset of someone who’s very, very good at their job that someone else is giving them to do.
Now this doesn’t mean that you’re doomed as an entrepreneur, you can certainly change how you think about it, but it is important that you’re honest with yourself about realizing that you’ve been thinking more like an employee than an employer because you’re very good at executing but not so good at big picture visioning. And you do need to kind of cultivate that skill, that muscle if you want to lead a team or a community or an audience or a movement or anything like that. So, but that’s something we can work on.
Like that’s a strategy I can help you with and literally help you with the mindset of cultivating and exercising that muscle within you. So if you’re any one of those people, and I think that more and more of them are just coming because I think that the online business space is getting louder and louder, then a strategic partnership could be really right for you.
And this is something I’m selfishly excited about because this is like, this is the thing that I could talk day in and day out about. This is the thing I know the best. I, you know, love feminine energy work. I also love mindset work. Mindset work is probably my favorite thing to do, but the thing I’m best at is strategy through and through and knowing what strategies work at what time, and really being able to kind of use it as a jigsaw puzzle to pave a yellow brick road to where you wanna go.
That’s why I’ve had so many ridiculous achievements happen to me at such a young age and so quickly. Um, you know, my six figure months and hitting seven figures while pregnant and having another seven figure sales year while my son was still nursing and, and all these things. It’s because I’m incredibly good at knowing what I need to drive forward when and making sure I’m driving it through.
And if that is the kind of support you think you need, then I literally can’t sit with you and do it with you. So this is a partnership, which means that it is a different payment structure than coaching and just a different way of working together. It’s more done with you than supporting you. If that makes sense. And I have a whole breakdown on my website. You can go to leader vet.com, uh, slash strategic dash partnerships or it’s on my website, it’s also the link in my bio and Instagram.
Um, it, yeah, it’s more about almost done like with you work where I’m literally like in your business with you looking at your spreadsheets, looking at your numbers, looking at what you need to do, looking at your to-do list, but not just supporting you on how you are doing it. So it is a bit more hands-on, I guess I would say, which is the right fit for some people that’s not the right fit for others and that’s totally fine.
Another difference about the partnership, uh, container is pricing. So because this is in partnership and because I’m more involved in helping you decide which strategy, like I’m basically gonna tell you what strategies I think you should do, it’s obviously up to you with your business at the end of the day. But coaching is very client led. Like I’ve talked about. I very much try to support my clients in helping them decide which strategy makes sense for them and supporting them around the decision there, helping them think through the decision.
Um, in the strategic partnership, I’m gonna just be a bit more blunt and sort of say like, this is what I think you should do if this is the goal that you have. So once we have that strategy or strategies laid out, that’s something that we’re regularly checking in together and I’m going to literally create a document. It will depend on the strategy itself, if it needs a tracker or uh, a checklist or a spreadsheet or something like that where we can co track together the work that you’re doing.
And this is also so powerful because it puts you back in the driver’s seat of your business. I know I’m guilty, so I’m not saying this from a glass house, but we are all guilty of, you know, having the mornings where we wake up and feel like, oh, things just aren’t working as much as I want.
And then you kind of look honestly back at the last four weeks or eight weeks or more importantly 12 weeks and think, what have I been doing consistently for 12 weeks to get that result? And the answer is usually not as much as the result takes. Okay? And that’s okay, that’s not a judgmental thing. We’re all human and we’re all doing the best that we can, but it can very quickly get us out of the well why isn’t anything working victim mindset and into, oh, I know exactly why things are working and I can change that.
So when you’re held accountable and when you have tracking and transparency and specificity around what you are doing, you can get very clear around where you stop yourself and where you excel and where things are easy and maybe where you could outsource more and maybe where you don’t know how to do something and you didn’t realize that that was blocking you and things just become a hell of a lot more efficient.
The pricing is very exciting. The pricing is something that I’ve done with a coach for over two years now. Okay? And that is why that was one of the inspirations for me to start thinking about how I could have my own integration with it as a partnership model. And I also just like that it gives people the option to work with me at a much lower flat rate fee, uh, than coaching does.
So my private coaching package is $75,000 per year and it really has all the bells and whistles that come with a transformative year deserving of that price tag. There’s a trip to Paris, right? In five star hotels. There’s brand photo shoots, there’s um, multiple calls every single month on a standing basis. There’s direct access to me. There’s uh, v i p days. It is like the royal treatment and I love offering that.
And I think for the right person at the right time, it does totally hold them in a way that can bring them to a different level of entrepreneurship. And I think there’s a lot of people out there who I know I could help that are not in a position whether their business isn’t there or they just don’t feel they need $75,000 worth of support. And that’s okay. I have those moments too. It’s not, and it’s not because I can’t afford it anymore, of course once upon a time it was.
But sometimes you just need different support at different times, especially us women. We have different seasons of life, we have different desires. I like honoring all those things. I very strongly believe in it. So I’m really excited to offer something that still stands in alignment with one of something I value very much, which is direct and individualized support.
I’ve talked a lot about this. I do like e-course, I believe in them, I offer them, I buy them. I don’t have an inherent problem with them, but I do think that a lot of entrepreneurs have no business buying more of them until their businesses, I would say past six figures. And they are implementing these strategies in an already functioning business. But all too often, unfortunately, entrepreneurs spend tens, sometimes thousands of dollars on an e-course that they first of all only finish around 30% off.
And second of all should be spending that money either on coaching or on marketing, not on more and more and more and more education. It just doesn’t make sense. You have to be implementing those things and you have to be reaching people in order to see if the things that you’re implementing are working. So not bashing, not bashing courses when they’re used correctly, but I think more often than not, people, entrepreneurs need some customized personalized support.
And I didn’t want that to be sacrificed, even though I wanted to offer something at a more affordable price point. And that’s really how this came together. And I think it really clicked so beautifully. I mean, I remember when I was, when this was coming to me and I was like, I was talking to one of my friends and I was like, I feel, I feel like I’m on drugs right now, because things are just clicking.
You know, that feeling when things are so aligned that it’s just like, oh, this makes sense and this makes sense and this feels perfect. I wrote the sales page for this in like 20 minutes. I talked, it took me longer than that, but it just came out of me. It was amazing. I’ve never had that much ease writing a sales page I don’t think ever because it all just came together in all the ways I had been thinking about for so long.
I mean, this has really been brewing for a very long time and uh, it just came together flawlessly. And this is one of those things. So, you know, and I like e-course ’cause I do like having the content there. If, if that’s what’s helpful for you. And I do like having the, um, just the materials that it can come with.
So think of this as being basically an e-course just for you, right? Because that was my frustration with the e-course. I’d love some of the content, but then I’d have 15 questions for every module because, well, how does this apply to my business? Or well, I sell this so I don’t know if this will work, or I don’t know how to do that tech thing yet, or I’m not ready to do that quite yet, or I wanna sell this in a different way. Or what if my audience isn’t there yet?
Or what if my audience has passed there yet, right? There’s so many variables here. And if someone could have just been like, okay, well here’s the cumulation of all the courses that you need, including ads, launches, marketing copy, website, tech mindset, belief in yourself, feminine energy practices to get to a better, healthier state of mind, all of that.
But for you, like just here’s the module on this for Leah, here’s the module on this for the goal. You have, here’s the module on this for the launch that you want. Here’s the module on this for your income goal. It would have been complete, I mean, I I, I literally can’t imagine it. I wish that someone would offer me this , but I don’t know anyone who has. So I’m very excited to offer it to you guys. So anyway, I got kind of off cross, uh, off track here.
We’re, we’re, we’re talking about the pricing and then I’m gonna talk about, um, the biggest questions that I’ve had from you guys so far. And I’d love to answer any questions that you guys have on live actually, lemme go look and see if there are any. I was on your podcast last week and it was fired. Oh, thank you so much. Do you have any other favorite books on mindset manifesting? I love the Science of Getting Rich Recommendation.
Thank you. You are so welcome. The Science of Getting Rich is the best. Honestly, my biggest recommendation is to reread it several times. I started reading that book in 2017 and so here we are six years later and I have probably read it 30 times and I can honestly say every single time it puts me in a different frame of mind. And I like the audible version of it.
I like, um, listening to him, even though I have to say his voice is a little monotone, but I listened to it on repeat when I first found it. And that was when I was really anchored into the belief that I could work for myself and I could have a luxurious life and I could get outta debt and I could have a six figure business.
And you know, I really had no proof that any of that was possible at the time. No reason to believe it. I was making $45,000 a year, I was working at a nonprofit. I had not sold anything. You know, my business had by no logical means any reason to be successful. But I knew that if I let that story be the one that I functioned off of, I would just continue to stay where I was. So I was really focused on things like tunnel vision.
This is working, everything’s happening, this is happening, right? I’m in the perfect place at the perfect time. I have been called to do this. No one’s in a better situation than me to do this. You know, that’s what I was really trying to believe. So I listened to that book over and over as I cultivated it.
And so now not only do I still love the book and still get something out of it when I read it, um, but it also brings me back to like just how strong my belief was, which it currently is inspired by past me because now I still have a very strong faith. I actually had kind of a wobbly July, which I talked about in a past podcast episode, but still have a very strong, um, you know, for the most part sense of certainty that I was born to live my dreams.
And I’m an amazing, you know, business owner and I have so much in front of me and all of that and that I can do this in New York and all the things that people say is unlikely, but I have a lot more proof now, right? Like I’ve already had two seven figure sales years and I’ve already done it while being a mother.
And I’ve already sold out like countless masterminds and coaching packages and group programs and I’ve already had the six figure months and I’ve, so I’ve done it all, which I’m super proud of, but it’s not as impressive now that I have this belief in myself as it was when I had none of that proof. So not only do I love that book, but I love connecting back with that part of me that could so strongly believe in herself despite any evidence and what anyone else was saying, that I still channel that strength even though I don’t need it as much as I did.
Um, but to answer your question, other books, other favorite books on mindset? Yes, I love a very fun one called The Game of Life and How to Play It. It’s a classic one. It is available for free on the Apple podcast app. They have someone read it for free. It’s someone who donated it, I think, which is cool or donated her time to read it.
Um, so The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Ved, I believe is her name. I don’t remember her name exactly, but that’s a, that’s a great one that I love. Um, I love Anything by Mike Dooley. He’s a lot of fun. Um, I, Dr. Wayne Dwyer, any of his books I think, um, are Good by Mike Dooley. I love Leveraging the Universe. That one’s a lot of fun. Um, I’m trying to think of other great mindset books.
Uh, I love The Big Leap. I think that’s a classic. That one helped me a lot in the beginning. I haven’t reread that one in a while. I wonder if I could go back to it. I’ve tried to go back to it since and I don’t know, I feel like I already took my big leap if I’m being honest, which is a pretty cool thing to say. So that one hasn’t aged as much with me as some of the others. But yeah, those are some ones that are top of mind.
Any other questions? How did you connect with your mindset coach? I think I originally found most of like my mindset and money mindset coaches on Instagram. Um, one of them I found because I actually interviewed her husband on a podcast. Um, I don’t know, I just have always very believed when it like comes to support that the teacher appears when the student is ready.
And I believe in calling things kind of like this offer. I just like have been looking for signs of a way that I could get my zone of genius out in a way that was in service to everyone and things just really kind of came together. So I think there’s a lot to just putting out what you’re ready to receive. Um, okay. Messing into your questions.
All right, so let’s talk about some of the most frequently asked questions. Let’s talk about pricing. Gee, I keep , I keep getting off track. So the pricing is, there’s two packages. I’m not gonna go into the logistical details ’cause it’s boring and you can look at it online. But essentially one has a bit more support than the other. They range from 1250 a month to 2000 a month, which like I said, in comparison to the $75,000 a year I have for private coaching is quite a bit less fractional, a fraction of the price.
And one of the reasons I’m able to do that is because that includes a 10% revenue share model. And I really love this because I think it really hammers in that partnership aspect. You are only paying me if you are making money and I’m not just here to charge you. I’m here to help you make the money.
And I have loved this with my own coach, uh, that I’ve done the partnership model with this, this revenue share model with any way profit sharing because I think it’s really helped me mature as a business owner because it’s given me a lot of space for slower months in support of much higher months or much higher quarters. And I think in the beginning everything for me was about like, can this month beat out the last month? And I think that that’s fine because I think that’s kind of the best way you can quantify things in the beginning.
That’s sort of like the window that you most are able to go off of. But at this stage and with the audience size that I have and with the offerings that I have, it just, I don’t really look at things in a month’s span anymore. So it’s nice not having the pressure to have a very big, uh, bill or invoice every month regardless of what my income is and instead have it be reflective of my income.
And yes, it means sometimes my 10% share or whatever percent I do with her is huge because sometimes I have a very big model, but that’s okay because we’re in this partnership model. She supports me in doing that and it feels good. It feels like this cycle in this support that it ought to, if that makes sense. So I think that there’s a lot of harmony in it and a lot of support for everyone in it.
And um, I think it really brings that partnership energy to it. So, and don’t, you know, I’ve had some people be like, but Leah, I’m not making enough money. Do you want a minimum? No, that’s not what this is about. I’m not relying on the revenue share. This is about supporting you. This is about your strategies and this is about you playing a long game and not feeling like you have to do these knee jerk things to make as much money as quickly as possible to pay for something.
Okay? So no. Um, okay, so that was one question. Next question I’ve been getting a lot of is just people wondering if there are, people just are saying, or I don’t know if it’s, I’m trying to think of like the direct question here. I I think people want to understand how this can work without as many calls.
Because that’s something that this doesn’t have that coaching has. And I did this really intentionally for a few reasons. The best and clearest answer I can give here is that I believe that that question means you might be underestimating the power of the client portal that is part of this. I haven’t even talked about that on this episode yet, but it’s a big thing in the, uh, sales page or hopefully it is.
But a huge part of the strategic partnership, I mean I’ve talked about it in reference here, is that you have what’s called your own client portal, which is basically your own e-course. And in that you have three modules. One is mindset, one is marketing and one is accountability. So you have personalized documents, materials, videos, trackers in each of those categories all the time. And we are co checking in on those around once a week.
Sometimes it’ll be more, sometimes it’ll be less, but you can expect it to consistently be done. So for example, if you’re someone that’s thinking, oh well I need support in calls because that’s when I go through mindset work or I talk things through, I don’t think that you’re properly estimating the power of having a joint journal document, for instance. You don’t have to share your journal with me, but I create journal prompts for you based on what I think your mindset needs.
And you can either share with me directly or answers or the takeaways from your answers. And we work through those together. And I honestly think there’s a power to that that calls don’t even have, I love calls, but there’s a way that you can look back on these things. There’s a way that you can dissect them further than just sort of like in an ad, uh, an uh, ad hoc conversation that I think breeds more sustainable results some of the time depending on what you need.
Um, same thing for marketing. We have launched documents, we have strategic breakdowns, we have content calendars, those things that you would need to flesh out. It’s not like they’re being ignored. This isn’t just boxer only support.
This is just transitioning what probably some of people, some people asking that question are used to or expect out of coaching calls or out of calls with their business consultant or whoever they’ve worked with into more documentation into more of an organized breakdown and kind of continuously working on it in that way rather than just saving it all for this one day a week where you have a call and talking about it as much as you can and then kind of taking it and running with it and then coming back to the coach if you need support with whatever you run with. So I think that there’s a lot of the same support just in a different container through the client portal that we have.
And like I said, something that I actually like about it that calls don’t have is the longevity is the way that you can reflect and is the way that you can continue with something that maybe you didn’t like think you needed to talk more about on a call, but then you kind of are writing down in a journal prompt or you’re writing down in one of our documents and you’re like, oh, I actually do wanna expand upon that a bit further.
All that said, you still do have calls with me. They are just not consistent calls. They are scheduled as needed. So this is where if you are just like, Leah, I need a mindset to tune up like I’m feeling I’m not feeling it. Or the opposite. If you’re just like, Leah, I’m feeling so on fire, I need help manifesting the $8 million house that I wanna buy one day, can you get on a call with me and break it down for me so I don’t just like talk myself out of it?
Hell yeah. Oh yeah. Right. And I think that that’s actually better for calls because they’re actually happening as you need them, not just on the scheduled basis. And I just like does no one else have Zoom fatigue? I feel like these Zoom calls just don’t have the same oomph that they used to because we’ve all been on them so long for so many years.
I still think that they can have their time in place, but the way they become like this default thing I think needs to be a little bit challenged so that they’re happening more with intention and on purpose and like giving you your power back in terms of when you realize you need them instead of just like them being there and you possibly having them. So you still do have calls. You also will probably be supported in the ways you would expect to from calls in the other content that you have.
And you still have Voxer access, there are voice notes on Voxer, you have email access, you can create loom videos, like all the things you’d want out of calls you probably can get either through the documentation or through the voxer slash email support or through the on-demand calls. And if there’s not, if you’re just someone that’s like, you know what I need ongoing every single week I need to talk about what I’m feeling or I need to talk about my mindset, or I need to have that standing appointment, that’s totally fine. This might not be the container for you.
And that is great, right? We all, like I said, need different things at different times. I know I’ve had times when I’ve needed very consistent support in terms of coaching calls and I know I’ve had times where I’ve been like in an action mode, go, go, go.
I don’t wanna be on as many calls as I have been in the past. And then I’ve been in times where I don’t wanna be on calls ’cause my life has been more, you know, demanding of me. So I think just asking yourself, what do I really think I get out of calls or really want out of them? Maybe you get them out of this anyway.
Maybe you get them out, maybe you get it better out of this than you would out of them, or maybe you don’t and that’s totally cool too. Okay. All right. I think those are the only questions I have. What about the calls? Can you explain revenue share? How is the pricing lower than coaching? Does anyone here have any other questions? I am live on uh, recording this right now, so I will just pause for a minute.
Also, we’re gonna be doing a series of strategy examples in the next week or so. I’m at my Instagram account, so if you’re kind of wondering as much as I’m alluding to these strategies, what some of them are, how long they take, what they actually look like, stay tuned for that. Um, but let me know if anyone has any questions in the meantime. Okay. Thank you for the book recommendations. What was the author’s last name? Wayne Dyer. Is it Dwyer or Dyer? Dyer. D y e r.
He’s no longer with us in the physical realm, but he was an amazing mind and an amazing man and he’s very inspiring. I also am currently reading Die With Zero, which is a great book, great for someone who, for those of us who are still processing and redefining how we want to spend our money. Uh, and at what age, I think for most of us, if you grew up with parents in the middle class or lower class, then you are likely, whether consciously or not perpetuating the idea that you, your number one job at any point in life is to save money for the future and to set yourself up for a better future.
And this book kind of, you know, breaks down that lie and talks about how actually all ages shouldn’t be treated equal. Some ages you should save more and some ages you should spend more. Like in your twenties and thirties you have a lot more room to recover from risk. You should start that business. You should go bigger if it’s what you want to do.
It’s not about carelessly spending, but it is about realizing that if you really wanna start a business and you do it in your twenties and thirties, but you’re worried that you won’t quote, save enough money while you do it, or that you’ll have debt while you do it. And so you don’t do it and you save money for the future in a future where, where you’ll be earning more, you’re basically depriving yourself of the current, you younger, you healthier, you having a better life.
So that in the future higher earning but less capable you have an easier life. Like it makes no sense , it makes no sense. You won’t need as much money to do as many things because you won’t be doing as many things and you also will have more money because your income will be higher.
So, um, anyway, that’s, that’s been a really good book too. I don’t agree with everything that they talk about, but I think it’s a really important thing to question, you know, things that we don’t always realize our opinions about. We sometimes think that this is just what you have to do or what is the smartest thing to do or the only way to get successful and it’s just not true. Um, but a lot of us don’t even like to think about it. And so I think it’s just important to question it.
Yeah, it’s so good, right? I mean, I, it definitely makes me feel very, very happy that I’m on the path of entrepreneurship and very grateful for making these choices at a young age because life is just too short. And I don’t know, we are gonna get into a whole thing now, but I always think about my dad. You know, when I read things like that, those of you that don’t know, my dad tragically died suddenly at only 58 58 so young.
And I just think if he were here, you know, what could he, what would he have done differently? Or if I knew that God forbid my life would end that early, what would I be doing now? And I can honestly say I’d be doing this. I would not be working for someone else. I would be going all in on my own dreams.
And I no longer feel like I’m taking as many risks now as I was in the beginning. ’cause I’ve paid off all my debts and my business has proven to be successful and reliable and I’m grateful for all of that. But I have all of that security and support from it because I took a huge amount of risks, um, and, and was in a lot of debt and, and many other risks, you know, not just debt.
Um, so anyway, that’s kind of a side tangent, but that’s been a fun book to read and it’s also just inspired me to, you know, make sure that I’m not, because I think I can very much get into that mindset of like, I really just need to work so hard to have what I need in the future and to set myself up and to do the best thing that I can for my kid and all of that.
And I think there’s a lot of admirable things about that unless you are depriving yourself of what you can experience in the present moment, especially when I have a young kid, or especially when you’re starting a business or especially when you’re getting married, right? Or whatever kind of experience you don’t wanna be taken away from in the present.
