Free Trainings Coming This Fall

Hey there… 🙂

I’m planning a series of free training calls for the fall… what would you like to learn from me most?

Let me know in the comments below – and thanks!

Are you ready to decide?

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know that I like to make decisions quickly
and take action right away. I know that I can tweak along the way if need be, but I won’t
get where I want to go if I don’t make a decision and MOVE. 😉

The same holds true for you in deciding whether or not to work with me on any level – privately,
in a group, or at my Online Business Breakthrough Workshop.

And as always, I want that decision to be the right one for you…

Because I know that’s the only way to have a mutually beneficially relationship that is not
only chockfull of value in terms of content, coaching and support – from getting you from where you
are to where you want to be – but we can have a whole lot more fun along the way as well.

(And I’m all about business being profitable AND fun. :-))

On that note, I’d like to answer some of the most common questions we’ve been receiving
about my upcoming Online Business Breakthrough Workshop: Your Blueprint to a
6-Figure Freedom-Based Business.

My hope is that doing so will enable you to make a decision whether or not one of the last
half-dozen seats is right for you.

And be sure to read through to the end – I have something by the way of over-delivering
to share with you as well. 😉

Q: Will you be offering a simulcast ticket option for OBBW?

A: No, OBBW 2012 will not be offered via simulcast. At the moment, OBBW is an intimate
workshop, with no more than 50 attendees. In order to engage fully with the participants in
the room, I have purposefully chosen NOT to simulcast the event.

If you want to learn from me on how to design, grow and manage a successful and sustainable
business, part-time, and that honors whatever it is that’s MOST important to you, then
join me LIVE here.

Q: I’m new in business. Am I going to be overwhelmed by OBBW?

A: Definitely not. Whether you’re a new business owner or have several years under your belt,
what I’ll be sharing with you during our 3 days together is applicable and immediately implementable
to ALL levels of business owners.

In fact, one of the unique ways I teach is in ‘layers’ – you’ll fully appreciate this at the workshop.

And it’s one of the beauties of hosting a boutique event like this – we’ll be tailoring all of the content
together for wherever you are on your business-building path (starting with a Discovery Questionaire
you receive upon registration where I ask all about you and your business, your goals and desires,
and what you want and need most from me at OBBW).

Q: I’d like to come, Alicia, but I don’t like traveling or attending events alone. Could I bring
someone with me?

A: Sure! All regular ticket holders may Bring-A-Friend (spouse, colleague, friend, client, family member,
team member, etc.) for a one-time non-refundable $97- fee.

What that also means is that if you have someone you’d like to split the ticket fee with,
you are most welcomed to do that (working the details amongst yourselves).

For example, if you purchase your seat for $497- (the current ticket price) and add on the
Bring-A-Friend option at the thank you page for $97-, the total investment would be $594-. That split
between two people would be just $297- each! (

Bottom line? At the early bird price of $497- (or even better, the split price of $297- if you split
it with someone), you have the unique opportunity to participate in one of the only small business
events that is 100% (and immediately actionable) content.

As I write this, we have 6 seats left for this year’s workshop. With my own bigger picture plan
mapped out, I can confidently say that it’s likely this is the last year I will be hosting this intimate
of an event for a full 3 days at this low of an investment.

So if you’ll feeling the pull or you’ve been on the fence, Alicia, I’m inviting you to make a decision – one
way or another – now.

Here’s the link for you to grab your ticket right now:

And last but not least…

A little surprise…

(I haven’t even let those who’ve already registered yet know about this surprise bonus yet…)

Everyone who has a reserved seat for – and attends – OBBW 2012 (whether it’s a regular ticket
or a bonus ticket (guest, client, friend, scholarship, etc.) will receive 2 BONUS tickets to OBBW 2013*.
You won’t have to book those seats until a later date, but we will keep them in reserve for you and be sure
you get first dibbs on securing them before we open the doors to the public. See? Fun!

I’m really looking forward to welcoming you to OBBW this September!

P.S. The workshop is less than two months away – and to be honest, it doesn’t matter to me whether
or not we fill these last few seats. But it does matter to me that you make a decision one way or another
for yourself. So whether it’s a YES or a ‘not now’, trust that and move forward. If YES, reserve your spot
and learn how I’ve created a business that honors my life and what’s most important to me, on a part-time
basis from the beginning. Let me show you in detail how you can do the same.

*Each bonus ticket requires a single $97- non-refundable seat deposit.

PS: here’s what just one recent 21 Steps owner shared:

“The 21 Steps Live! Program has taken me leaps forward in my business plan and mindset.

Immediately starting the program I finally hit on the niche that completely resonated with me. My marketing message became clear and I had a plan of how to reach my niche and how to figure out exactly what they wanted.

Before I joined the program I was working with blinders on. I thought that I had all of the components needed for a business to run well… a niche, a website, business cards and pamphlets, and a passion for coaching. I never understood why my website wasn’t working for me, why I hesitated to hand out my business cards, and why even though I was so passionate about helping others did I always feel like something was missing. This program helped me to understand why to all of those things, and it also had me making the shifts and changes necessary to take my blinders off and move forward in a powerful way.

This program took into consideration every step you need to build an authentic online business. My message follows through now with everything I do and create, my website will no longer be an online brochure, my list-building strategies are authentic and provide all potential clients with great value, and my products and services have expanded.

I also have a better understanding on marketing, and I know now that so much of it is about building relationships and trust in a way that benefits both my clients and me.

In just 8 weeks I have defined my niche, created a new free taste as well as my first for fee product and 2 bonuses, and I am in the midst of working with a web designer who is helping to recreate and optimize my website while staying true to a brand that fits me and identifies with my niche. This has opened me and my business up to so many opportunities.

I have even more energy and passion for what I do, my creative juices are flowing, and I have a solid plan that helps me to stay on track and keeps me going one step at a time.

I would recommend this program to anyone who needs a boost in their business whether you are just starting out or are an established entrepreneur.

Alicia and her program give you everything you need to move forward in a big way that feels right for you.”

Go back in time with me?

As I enjoyed celebrating our freedom here at the lake yesterday, surrounded by family and friends, laughing and reminiscing together, in my mind, I went back in time for a moment…

…to when Chloe was 4 months old, and we lived in New York, and we bought one of those small easy-set pools so I could ‘swim’ with her… and then when she was 6 months old and we spent a week at the lake at my parents’ cottage and I cried the moment I laid her on the little beach down the hill from the cottage, and how I smiled so much it hurt when she went into the water in her little float that first time, feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to share this very special place with her.

As much as I had always wanted to spend my summers at the lake like I did from the time I was 3 months old until I was 22, I had to get a ‘real’ job after graduating from college instead of another summer job waitressing. Nothing was more motivating to me to figure out how to create a lucrative business of my own designed around the life that I wanted than that first brief visit here with my daughter.

And by the next summer, I had secured a waterfront cottage for us for 4 weeks, which James, Chloe and I enjoyed together, and Chloe and I spent another 3 weeks with my parents at their place with James joining us on the weekends. (Each year since, we’ve added a week or two (and our son Jack), and seven summers later are enjoying 11+weeks together as a family.)

That was also the first summer I embraced this concept, offered to me by my mentor, coach and friend, Andrea Lee…

To double your income, the first thing you must be willing to do, is do LESS THAN HALF of what you’re currently doing.

Gulp. At first, I thought, there’s no way I could possibly work less. I had an 18-month-old who took a few 30 minute naps a day at best, which is when I worked…

But I knew intuitively there was something to this and there was no better time for me to test it out than during the summer.

So I did – for 7 weeks I sent my ezine each week and that was pretty much it… and you know what happened?

I made more money during those 7 weeks than I had in the previous 6 months. Amazing.

Thus, that concept has become one of the principles I’ve built my business on since.

This one can be a bit hard to grasp – it was for me, since I grew up with a work ethic grounded in an Irish immigrant great-great-grandfather who landed on the docks in Boston and started the legacy of a long line of longshoremen on my father’s side, including my dad, the same day.

I’m inviting you now to consider it though… what can you do less of or not do anymore at all that will empower you to create more income?

I guarantee there is something that you could let go of today that will start you on the path of more income today.

This concept, and others like it that have made a huge difference in the success of my own business, are part of what I’ll be sharing with you in our intimate gathering at my Online Business Breakthrough Workshop 2012.

I’ll be sharing with you specifically how to cut your workload in half while doubling your income, so if this is calling to you – then go ahead and reserve one of the last few seats available here:

(If you have ANY questions about OBBW, just hit reply with them and we’ll get right back to you.)

Then watch for a message from me on Friday, as I’m going to offer you an opportunity to create or strengthen the foundation of your online business so you can create the same kind of FREEDOM I have in my business.

’til then…
