How a Real Estate Agent & Business Coach Made Their First $10K Month

 

Hello friends! Welcome back to the show. Today I'm thrilled to be bringing you two of our amazing Cubicle to CEO Members, Sarah Matson and Ashley Lew. They're on today sharing their experience being a part of The Cubicle to CEO Membership, and how they've used our Consistent Clients Cashflow System (that we teach inside the membership) to make their first $10K month! I think it's so much fun to learn from other entrepreneurs who are working alongside us in the trenches as I call it. It's also so amazing to see how two entrepreneurs from completely different industries can see success using the same system! So, I want you to look at today's episode as a case study of how these two in their businesses, and what it looks like to accelerate the growth of your business.

Welcome back to another solo episode! This week's episode is on a really juicy topic that has completely transformed the way that I do business. It is the Dunning Kruger effect.

We have an exciting guest on the show today, friends. I’m thrilled to be sharing my conversation with the inspiring Jordan Lee Dooley. Jordan is a National Bestselling Author, Speaker, Creative Business Educator, and Host of the Top Rated Podcast, SHE.

In an industry where profitability evades most salon owners for years, Alicia has defied the odds by being profitable + debt free since the beginning.
