00:10:45 Kelli Femrite: And it was after I took a little break things staring falling into place!
00:11:58 Barb at Infinity Brand Design: I wonder if they heard “pay more money” instead of “continued access to Parisa the Awesome” and aren’t hearing the most important elements.
00:12:48 erika: Could you make it almost a FOMO thing? Where they are the OG 5 so they have the cred

00:35:50 Laura Kåmark: @erika that’s how I feel about the marketing calls
00:36:01 Barb at Infinity Brand Design: Or they don’t hold up their end of the bargain. I share WAYYYYY more than they do.

00:49:49 Barb at Infinity Brand Design: That was the OTHER element of that too!
00:50:03 Lori Reeves: Cory, the freebie on your site will also be pivotal for making sure you’re attracting the right people. So I wonder if some kind of resource that helps someone “level up” their business to reach the next level or something. And then you’ll be getting people who are THERE who raise their hand for something like that.
00:50:17 Kelli Femrite: Oh love that @Lori
00:50:20 Parisa: That was great @Barb. I’ve been going through the same thing and relaunching my website.
00:53:02 Barb at Infinity Brand Design: Putting myself out there more has magnetized ideal clients to me. They know I’m expensive but will figure out how to make it work. I have a lady who’s saving up to work with me in July.
00:54:03 erika: This has been a great call! I have to run but I’ll see y’all next time.
00:54:44 Barb at Infinity Brand Design: Same here… I have a call in a few mins but sending y’all SO MUCH LOVE!
