When you want to grow your impact and be able to exponentially increase income, it makes sense to find ways to generate revenue by scaling your small business offerings. However, some entrepreneurs experience breakdowns and bottlenecks when trying to package their one-on-one services into scalable offerings. That’s where this week’s guest expert, Mandi Ellefson comes in. She’s joined me on Amplify Your Success Podcast to share her secret techniques that business owners across the globe use to scale their business into the high six and seven figures.

When your business grows quickly and your time shrinks, you’ll often have to say no to opportunities that are really attractive – but just don’t make the cut! In this episode of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I’ll share why saying no more often to distractions and bright, shiny objects is essential to protecting your bigger goals and dream business.  


Key Takeaways 

  • What happens when your business is growing really fast – and you have limited time – if you keep saying yes to everything that comes your way. 
  • A few important distinctions on “great ideas” versus your aligned opportunities that will accelerate your biggest goals and dream business. 
  • My trick to knowing what to say the “difficult no” to, especially when I REALLY want to do it, feel I should do it, or feel conflicted about an opportunity. 
  • How FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) can trip up smart, high-achieving business leaders who really can “do it all” – but really shouldn’t.  
  • Why a small twist on the “Hell No or Hell Yes” principle can be your best decision making tool

The road to success is often filled with twists, turns and some surprising truths about what it really takes to create a successful business. As a business coach and mentor, I’ve discovered many people have it all wrong! In this episode of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I’ll share 3 things I discovered by coaching thought leaders and through behind-the-scenes conversations with other business leaders – and I was not only surprised, but relieved to know that some of these truths are more common that you would think.   

Key Takeaways 

  • The question asked by an audience member at a women’s leadership conference sparked a conversation revealing the truth about debt and investing in your future business success.  
  • Why I think work-life balance is a complete myth that sets most leaders up for failure – and the empowering technique I use instead.  
  • What the most successful entrepreneurs do when fear crops up (hint: it’s not “feel the fear and do it anyway.) 
  • The importance of your support network as you evolve from entrepreneur into a business leader.  
  • The real purpose of planning that most newer entrepreneurs, coaches and service professionals miss the benefit of.
