Beginner's Luck Explained

marketing Oct 13, 2020

In today’s episode, I wanted to share my thoughts on what many call “Beginner’s Luck” - that magical phrase that we often use when we see another person’s success who is starting out in their marketing journey...and maybe uttered more often during a time when we are struggling with feelings of Imposter Syndrome and comparing ourselves to others. One important thing to realize is that there are some actual reasons why Beginner’s Luck is a thing, but also our approach to how we’re presenting ourselves, our services, and how we are reacting to the successes that we do have can make all the difference.  




  • What three things that beginners have and do that automatically create a better chance of success for themselves
  • Why it’s important to understand market saturation vs. market sophistication
  • How the mindset a beginner automatically is set up for success

Three Lessons from a Profitable Launch that Went Wrong

In today’s episode, I pull back the curtain to show the behind-the-scenes ins and outs of a recent launch - and the lessons I learned from everything that went wrong. I want to share these things I learned with YOU so that you can at least recognize them when they come up - because things always come up, we can’t control everything. Having done hundreds of launches, I knew these things and STILL they had a way of coming back. Because you never get to the top and have ARRIVED. It’s always a mercurial learning process. 

Learning and improving comes from DOING it. It takes, sometimes, MESSY action. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to want to try to make everything about your launch perfect - and...well, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you want or expect. And you know what? All the 7-figure marketing masters that we all look up to also had to go through the same things. They just learned it and got through it faster.
