Tyler J. McCall Stopped Working For 6 Months - Here’s What Happened To His Online Business

 
 

Happy New Year friends and welcome to the first episode of 2022! I could not think of a better guest to start this year off with than my friend, Tyler J. McCall. I really believe this episode is the most transparent and raw episode on this show so far. We touch on all the things in online business that often get swept under the rug, like burnout, feeling inadequate as a leader, and what it looks like when you step away from your online presence.

Tyler is the founder of onlinebusinessowner.com and host of the online business show podcast. Since 2015, he has helped entrepreneurs build thriving online businesses through his online programs, services, and events. In this episode, we are talking about how he was able to take an unplanned 6-month sabbatical from work because of the burnout he was experiencing. We will be looking at how this came to be, how his business was able to sustain itself without the CEO, and why it’s so important to have a business reserve.

Heidi Zak Reveals How ThirdLove Acquired 1 Million Customers In 3 Years

 
 

Real talk: Why were we never taught how to buy a properly fitting bra? I know I can’t be the only one who struggles with this. Generations of women have been playing a guessing game and settling for uncomfortable products & outdated practices in an industry that - until recently - catered more toward appealing to men than serving women.

This was the exact obstacle Heidi Zak, the co-founder and CEO of ThirdLove, had to overcome when she launched an innovative solution to normalize online bra shopping that skyrocketed ThirdLove to being the #1 digital bra brand among millennials.

Today, we’re dissecting the case study of how ThirdLove acquired 1 million paying customers in just 3 years and which customer acquisition channels they’re doubling down on in 2022.

We’re back with another inspiring $10K month case study with Cubicle to CEO member, Sarah Breshears.

If you’re new to the podcast, Cubicle to CEO is my 12 month mentorship program where we help service providers, coaches, and consultants make their first $10,000 revenue month from a 1:1 service without a large following or posting every day. We’re on a mission to help 500 women achieve this financial milestone in their business journey, and so far dozens of our members have already gotten there.

 This week’s episode is the first of its kind on the Cubicle to CEO Podcast! We are bringing you our very first LIVE podcast recording from an event we had with Upper Left Ladies a couple weeks ago at the beautiful Vessel Society in Portland Oregon. 

My friend Jyssica Yelas, co-founder of Upper Left Ladies, and I wanted to share our conversation about how her breakeven event led to a 300% increase in organic reach and countless brand partnerships! We see this episode as a case study within a case study since we recorded this in front of an audience, and were able to have them be part of the conversation as well. This event in and of itself was an opportunity to showcase the value of putting on live events beyond short-term profits by seeing all of the attendees expanding their networks and meeting other female entrepreneurs they can relate with.

You get to meet one of my favorite people today!

This Free 1 Hour Class Doubled Her Business To $20K Months - Watch It This Week

 
 

You’ve heard me share my free masterclass in almost every episode of the podcast, but today’s guest is proof that watching this free training can lead to MASSIVE results.

Kat Araujo started her branding agency, Afternoon Culture, in 2018, and despite having reached $10K months already, she was struggling to scale beyond that.

She stumbled across my free masterclass, understandably skeptical of how much value a free training could truly provide, but decided to give it a shot since she had nothing to lose.

After watching my masterclass and implementing the lessons we cover in that single hour, Kat quickly doubled her business revenue to consistent $20,000 months.

These were her results from literally just my FREE masterclass, not even my paid programs.

Today’s case study examines the revenue breakdown of her $20K months, how she went from being scared to charge her clients $3,000 to raising her minimum project rate to $5,000, and the biggest shifts from my...

Ali Kaminetsky Created An Ambassador Program That Drives 25% Of Modern Picnic’s Annual Sales - Without Paying Commission!

 
 

I may as well have named this episode “How To Run A World Class Ambassador Program” because today’s guest basically gives you the blueprint to create a successful ambassador program people are clamoring to sign up for. Ali Kaminetsky graduated college in 2016 and moved to New York to start her job in retail, but quickly had a product idea she couldn’t shake. While “googling” for a lunchbox she could use to bring her daily lunches to work, she realized there were options for little kids and for men, but nothing for women who wanted to look and feel their best. It was clear that the traditional lunchbox needed a makeover, and from there, Modern Picnic was born in 2019!

Since then, Modern Picnic - dubbed “not your average lunchbox” - has created impactful partnerships with brands like American Express and Martha Stuart, and been featured in huge publications like Vogue, The New York Times, The Today Show, and Harpers Bazaar.
