Expanding your Brand with Certification and Licensing

Certifications and licensing programs are a hot business model these days – and for good reason. It’s one of the best ways to build upon your hard-earned expertise and create a leveraged offering that allows you to serve more people without adding more. In this session we are going to dive into:

  • The difference between certification and licensing, and how to know which one is best for you
  • 3 signs that it’s time to create a certification program
  • How to navigate the risks of certifying folks (what if they don’t represent your brand well?)
  • The biggest mistakes folks make when offering a certification (and how to avoid them!)
  • How to get started with creating your own certification or licensing program

Finding & Hiring Top Performers

Can I keep it real with you? There are LOTS of people out there you can hire to support you in your business – VAs, OBMs, marketers, tech folks, sales, etc. – but not all of them are going to be top performers. Hiring a top performer is the difference between having someone who helps you grow the business vs. having someone who waits to be told what to do (and just creates more work for you). In this session I’m going to share with you

  • the 5 characteristics of a top performer,
  • what results they can create for you
  • how to identify whether they are – or aren’t! – a top performer during the interview process
  • leading a top performer (so they want to stay with you long term)
