039 - The Mark Mason Sessions - Session 05
This is session 05 of The Mark Mason Sessions. In this month's conversation, Mark came away with the following insights: Mark gained clarity on how his values and rules impact his progress and success, and that redoing the values exercise more thoroughly could provide greater clarity.Mark gained a greater understanding of the Values/Rules exercise and its overall intent and purpose.Mark understands the need, moving forward, for goals and plans to consider life realities like responsibilities, commitments, energy levels, and margins changing over time.Mark expressed a desire to discuss his experience with cycles of high motivation and productivity followed by seasons of procrastination and low productivity.We did uncover that Mark's bursts of motivation often start at the end of the year when he has more free time, but he had not accounted for how priorities and available time change with the kids’ sporting seasons.One of Mark's top priorities is being present with his family during sporting seasons, which means consciously adjusting goals and expectations during those times.We discussed how a practice of journaling can help discover patterns that could help understand what drives these cycles.

This includes researching the host and having a clear call to action.Having a clear call to action is important, but possessing unwavering confidence in the value of your course of action is the key to eliciting responses.There is a need to be fully present and engaged during interviews to establish a connection with the listeners and hosts.Using a clear, compelling "one sheet" to make it easy for hosts to say yes and ask questions that help you achieve your goals.Audience size numbers from directories are not accurate or transparent, and the right audience is more important than a large size.Thorough onboarding, training, and pitching over multiple months is important for services like Interview Connections to deliver top-notch results.Authenticity and vulnerability build strong business relationships, and local employees provide personalized service better than outsourcing.Referral partnerships can help promote services when there is trust, integrity, and a track record of success.Ongoing coaching can help overcome mindset blocks keeping clients from achieving their goals.Jessica Rhodes has been running her "Interview Connections" podcast guesting service for over a decade.

028 - When Your Client Asks For One Thing, But You Sense That There Is A Bigger Conversation To Be Had
If you ever wondered why I shut down my Podcast Answer Man business and rebranded myself as the Mindset Answer Man, this episode will give greater insight into my decision than I've shared previously. Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching." Kate Nankivell let me know that she would be participating live and that she planned to ask the following question:  "I’ve just started a new podcast called The Shape of Kate. I’m at the beginning of my much needed weight loss and regain my fitness and health journey and I want to share this journey and so much more through this podcast. Now this represents a departure from my current business so I’m thinking about my monetization strategies. My clear intention with this podcast is to be an inspiration through sharing my journey but not a weight loss coach or fitness expert. I’ll interview those experts as I go. They rightly claim their expertise. My monetization ideas at this early stage is to bring on advertisers who pay for results. Eg when people who listen and click through to their offer and/or use my coupon code they pay me an agreed affiliate fee." When it came time to have my conversation with Kate, I had already created an outline of insights that would have helped her optimize the effectiveness of her affiliate income streams, plus I had created a list of several other income streams that most people have not considered. Yet, within a few moments into our conversation, I closed the browser that had all the pre-outlined insights that I had prepared. It had become clear to me that there was a much more powerful and important conversation to be had. Have a listen to this episode to see where our conversation went.  After the conversation, I give a commentary on the overall experience.  I know that you'll gain a lot of value from this conversation.   If you are resonating with the content that I create, you will find one or more of the following products and services extremely valuable and life transformative. 1. Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast - This "audio journal format" podcast provides invaluable insights that my high-paying clients receive from me directly, plus exclusive, never-before-seen behind-the-scenes knowledge about how I run my business.

027 - Creating An Evergreen Marketing Funnel That Will Bring A Consistent Flow of Potential New Coaching Clients
Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Jennifer Swanson asked the following question:  "My coaching is off the side of my desk (and I want it to stay there because I'm doing several things) but it would be nice to have a handful of steady clients, and while word of mouth has been good in the past, it's never stead. What strategies would you suggest for finding clients that are not high-pressured or sale-sy?" The advice I gave in this episode: Create an evergreen marketing funnel that is purpose built to consistently generate new potential clients who are interested in your coaching. Create a niche topic podcast with only five to ten podcast episodes that are more valuable than a $2,000 dollar course on the topic.For every episode, give away a high quality “hand-out” or “PDF Quick Guide” that relates to the content of that episode. (They will opt-into your email newsletter to receive this)Write a series of emails (at least 10 to 20) that will be released once a week after they are added and that are meant to add increase value that you are providing, thereby nurturing your relationship further.At natural points, put CTA’s will get people to submit an application for your coaching. Create a Waiting List.Create a series of easy to follow through, ongoing actions, that you can do to continue brining people into the top of your marketing funnel.   If you are resonating with the content that I create, you will find one or more of the following products and services extremely valuable and life transformative. 1. Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast - This "audio journal format" podcast contains many of the same insights that my clients who pay tens of thousands of dollars to get from me directly.

026 - Struggle - How Can I Build A Thriving Business If I Can Coach On Almost Anything?
Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Loubna Zarrou asked the following question:  "I have been coaching many years but one struggle is how to turn it into a business when you can coach on almost anything." The advice I gave in this episode: First, I shared one of my favorite Steven Chandler quotes about the topic of "choosing a niche" for your coaching. Next, I provided the following five pieces of advice: Determine how much money that you need to generate on a monthly basis to thrive financially from your full-time self-employed coaching business.Do the math…. Can you find 1 client to pay 100% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work?Can you find 2 clients to pay 50% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work?Can you find 4 clients to pay 25% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work?Can you find 10 clients to pay 10% of your monthly amount within 15 to 20 hours a week of work? Determine exact ideal client for that offer and go validate it. However, while searching for that exact fit, don’t ignore all the other clients who would fit within that price ranged product.Commit to generating all your monthly income needs by working with as few clients as possible that would require no more than 15 to 20 hours a week of your time to serve.Once booked solid and consistently generating that revenue on a monthly basis, start adding other products and services.   If you are resonating with the content that I create, you will find one or more of the following products and services extremely valuable and life transformative. 1. Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast - This "audio journal format" podcast contains many of the same insights that my clients who pay tens of thousands of dollars to get from me directly.

025 - Nine Tips To Secure High Ticket Coaching Clients From Your Podcasting Efforts
Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching" and Chris Pinckley asked the following question:  How can a seasoned or veteran coach, in other words someone who already knows the coaching industry, turn their podcast into a lead generation tool effectively? Talk consistently about the exact topics that your current coaching clients are bringing to their sessions. (No Specifics of the client Included of course)Use the precise language that they use to describe their pain, problem, struggle, obstacle, etc.Host “Ask Me Anything” sessions like this to offer a “public example” of the type of coaching you do and include some examples of those conversations in your podcast.Create “Custom CTA’s” For Every Episode.Prioritize getting people to your mailing list to nurture the relationship.Add different price point offerings for your value ladder of products and services.Invite your best clients who have experienced the most transformation to tell their story, as a guest, on your show. (They 'may' share it with others)Consider creating “niche topic podcasts."Be a guest on other people’s podcasts who reach your exact, ideal, client.   If you are resonating with the content that I create, you will find one or more of the following products and services extremely valuable and life transformative. 1. Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast - This "audio journal format" podcast contains many of the same insights that my clients who pay tens of thousands of dollars to get from me directly.

Here are a few testimonials from current and former members of The Next Level Mastermind: Tom Heffner said... Cliff Ravenscraft and the mastermind he created were a major inflection point in my career and life. I went from feeling trapped in a day job to creating my own freedom and autonomy. I left the day job at that time to start my own business to give myself more freedom to do what I want, with whom I want, when I wanted. I've never looked back. Here's the interesting part - as much as Cliff can help you with the tactical/practical (e.g. the in's/out's of online business - he can definitely help with this) ... what really helped me was changing my mindsets and removing the limiting beliefs holding me back from achieving what I wanted. Dan Faulknor said... I joined the group with the plan of maybe leaving my day job in the next year or two. Within 6 months of joining (and attending meetings at 3am my time. It was worth it!) I had a plan to leave my day job within a couple of months. I did leave my day job, much sooner than expected and now 4 years later my business is thriving with 3 employees + myself. Cliff's ability to ask you questions and get you to lead YOURSELF is his greatest strength, in my mind. You have nobody to 'blame' but yourself, because you provide all the answers with Cliff's guidance.  Kevin Davis said...  I was at a standstill. Didn’t know what the next step was. Actually, I didn’t think I was qualified to make the next step. Didn’t have anyone in my circle at that time to help. So I took a leap and joined Cliffs mastermind. My how things changed! First was overcoming some thoughts that held me back. Then some steps and next action items to get the ball rolling. Now I’ve moved the ball down the field farther and quicker than ever imagined. Leslie Graham said... If you are thinking about this, be sure to reach out to Cliff. Joining NLM was the biggest leap I'd ever made in terms of investing in myself and my business, but my life was radically changed in so many ways as a result of my nearly two years with the group. In fact, my current business was launched as a result and I couldn't be happier with the trajectory of that business.     I have other podcasts that might be of interest to you.
