A peek at a recent launch for iPEC Certified Professional Coaches, Karen + Curtis Herbert 🤩⁠

The founders of Themelios were waiting to fully launch their coaching business until after they had a website. Supporting their overall strategy and business goals, we aimed for a professional, authentic and polished website design. While simultaneously inviting in a sense of humor. Partnering together, we accomplished all this and more.⁠

Do you really need a coming soon page? 🤔

I answer this question + more in today's post.

https://katieobrien.com/how-to-design-a-great-coming-soon-page-for-your-website/

A coming soon page is a temporary page on your website that is displayed to all visitors.

I most commonly use coming soon pages as a temporary placeholder while I’m building a client’s website. A web design project can take upwards of 3-4 months, so a coming soon page is a great option if they don’t already have a website in place.

However, coming soon pages might not be for everyone. Before we discuss how to design a great coming soon page, let’s decide if a coming soon page would be the best solution for your business at this time.

I think it makes all the difference by being able to sit down with someone (even if it is virtually) and talk things out. I'd be happy to answer any outstanding questions you might have about B-School, my suite of bonuses or just want to see if we'd connect.

Since joining B-School back in 2016 I have YET to sign up for another online training program for my business. ⁠

I just haven’t had any need to. Between the lifetime access and supportive community, B-School has been all I’ve ever needed to grow my business into what it is today.⁠

So, as an experienced entrepreneur with a profitable, established business… will I be taking B-School again this year? You betcha!⁠

Interested in joining B-School with me this year?⁠

B-School has granted me the tools + know-how to build a business I love, and in return, help my clients do the same.⁠

And this year, I'm so excited to be teaming up with new B-Schoolers providing them 1-1 support and coaching throughout the program.⁠

Want to join us?⁠

Enrollment only comes once a year and will be closing THIS Friday.⁠

B-School is a group learning experience. It couldn't touch so many lives and businesses at once if not. ⁠But what if you could add on 1-1 coaching?

Now you can 👉 https://katieobrien.com/marie-forleo-bschool-bonus-affiliate-webdesign/

And while there's already a team of Mentor Coaches, outstanding support from Team Forleo and the B-School community at your side... I thought what better addition than 1-1 support and coaching. That's individualized and intimate.⁠

As Certified Professional Coach turned Web Designer + Brand Strategist I'm thrilled to be working 1-1 with a number of new B-Schoolers this year.⁠

Want in? Enrollment closes THIS week and only comes once a year.⁠

Is B-School great for beginners? Absolutely. But is B-School also great for those with a business already? Absolutely.

As I enter the 5th year of my business, I’ll be taking B-School yet again. Here's why it's still relevant to my business today...

What if we could simplify everything we do in our business down to just 6 pillars?

The number one shared emotion of my clients before working together is overwhelm.

It's overwhelm with a side of frustration.

I can bet you've also had your fair share of experience with these same emotions.

It tends to go in waves for me.

Maybe I get too bogged down in client work, I forget about my own business. Or maybe I'm too consumed with my own website, I forget about the importance of outreach. Or perhaps I get a flood of new ideas at once, feel overwhelmed with which to prioritize first and, as a result, take no action at all.

Every single time I find myself feeling lost or overwhelmed in my business... I revert back to the 6 pillars of growing an online business presented by Marie Forleo. Today she's diving into this exact topic in a free video training.

This training is intended to help you find your own voice in your business in order to make smart and strategic decisions to ensure your business thrives... without the overwhelm or frustration.

It’s hard to believe 4 years ago today I was searching for a side gig I could run alongside staying home with my littles...⁠

Well, I found it. And that little side gig quickly turned into the dreamy business I have today.⁠

A business that allows me to work with clients I adore. From all over the world.⁠
⁠⁠
A business that gives me the freedom in my schedule to be there for my kids when needed most.⁠

And not to mention the financial freedom that’s slaying our family’s financial goals with a steady profit margin of over 60% each year… and growing…⁠

… all while doing something I absolutely love!⁠

You might already know my story… but you might not know what I credit to my success.⁠

Sure, it was hard work, late nights and some serious determination... but the catapult of my success started with Marie Forleo's B-School.⁠

And today I’m sharing the full story with you… alongside an honest review of Marie Forleo’s B-School program.⁠

Launch day is the best day 🙌

Introducing the new and improved elainebrisebois.com 🎉

As a seasoned nutritionist, Elaine has helped hundreds of women. She came to me ready to overhaul her outdated website. She dreamt of an elegant, timeless design that would help her new clients feel connected, supported and at ease from the second they landed on her site. In the end, Elaine was delivered just that alongside a strategically built WordPress website that will serve her business for years to come.

Quite a few of my clients recently have been working through the process of nailing their niche so I wanted to share exactly how coaches can identify (and refine) the perfect coaching niche for their business.

If you’ve been an online entrepreneur for any length of time, especially in the coaching industry, I’m confident you’ve been strongly encouraged to niche down, nail your niche or that the riches are in the niches.

While this isn’t entirely false, I come at this advice from a different angle.

Your niche will find you.

In other words, one day you’ll look back and realize you’ve already found your niche. There is no need to hunt them down.

But I understand that’s not really helpful to those who want to pinpoint their niche right now… so I thought this article might help.

11/27/2019

If I had to choose, Asana would be my absolute favorite tool I use in my business.

In the simplest terms, Asana is a virtual to-do list I share with clients for each new project. However, it really is so much more than that. It simplifies communication, keeps files organized and ensures the project stays on track.

I started building websites for clients in 2016 and quickly realized email communication alone wouldn’t suffice. A fellow designer recommended Asana and I’ve been with them since. I’ll admit I tested a few other project management systems but nothing has come close to Asana.

Any tool I use in my business has to simplify my life in one way or another. Asana does just that for both me and my clients. It also:

-keeps the project organized by clearly outlining every step of the project.
-ensures everyone is on the same page at all times.
-keeps the lines of communication open (+ organized).
-prevents delays with the schedule clearly outlined via Asana’s due dates and email reminders.

Today on the blog I'm sharing a simple video overview on how I use Asana to collaborate with clients: https://katieobrien.com/how-i-use-asana-design-clients/
