My guest today is Brandi Mowles, a Facebook and Instagram ads manager who grew her business from zero to six figures in just 10 months.
Before we dive in, you're gonna want to sign up for Brandi's FREE masterclass “How to Scale to Consistent 10K Months Without Hiring a Team” where you'll learn:
Okay, back to Brandi's episode!
Brandi started her online business last year as a social media virtual assistant and soon discovered her love and talent for optimizing sales funnels and driving conversions through Facebook ads.
She's super passionate about helping service-based entrepreneurs scale to 5-figure months so that they can enjoy the financial and lifestyle freedom that she has earned.
What I loved about Brandi – aside from learning a ton about what NOT to do with Facebook Ads – is that she’s so confident in her knowledge and her ability to help businesses be successful.
And I think being confident in what you do combined with a great strategy for marketing yourself is the winning combination to being able to grow your side hustle quickly.
Brandi and I talk about:
- How Brandi went from being a stay at home mom to building a 6 figure business in just 10 months.
- Exactly how she found her first virtual assistant clients.
- How to respond to job postings online in a way that makes you stand out.
- How Brandi used LinkedIn to get clients.
- Why Brandi transitioned from being a virtual assistant to a Facebook Ads manager and how she built a reputation for herself as an expert.
- Why she’d rather spend $3,000 vs. $100 on training.
- The biggest mistakes people make with Facebook Ads (that I’ve totally made with mine in the past!)
- The one belief Brandi had to change about herself to get where she is today.
That was such an awesome conversation, and I think back to my first 10 months in business and think, “Ohmigosh there’s no way I would have been able to do what she did.”
And it’s not because I didn’t have the knowledge or the skill, it’s because I was not nearly as confident as Brandi is!
But what I know now is that it’s just all in how I was thinking, and I think the biggest reward I’ve gotten from growing my side hustle is the personal growth that comes with it. And as I grow into the person I need to be to handle success, the success appears.
My favorite quote from Brandi:
“Stop consuming so much content and go market your services. You’re going to learn so much more by doing then by consuming.”
