After 3 years, I’ve decided to retire my signature 12 month group mentorship program - Cubicle to CEO - (just the program, not the brand - don’t worry)! We’re hosting one last launch at the end of July, before closing enrollment for good. Through this program, we’ve helped hundreds of service providers, coaches, and freelancers work with their dream clients and make their first $10,000 income month. That’s why we’re taking this month to celebrate a few of our Cubicle to CEO students who recently reached that big milestone, including today’s guest, Sam Whisnant. Sam is a certified Digital Business Manager who helps coaches with courses build a scalable business foundation through simple systems and funnels. She’s helped her clients have $100K launches, hire multiple new team members, build new products & funnels from scratch, and most importantly, take care of the day-to-day business so they can focus on their zone of genius.

Even though she’s a whiz behind the scenes, Sam was struggling to break beyond $6,000 revenue months as a service provider until she joined our group mentorship program. In today’s case study, Sam shares how she was finally able to grow from being stuck at $6K months to $10,000+ months just 6 months after joining our program, WHILE working 10 hours a week less as well (all without having to hire help!)
