50 Shades of Pay

Strap in and hang on – you are getting the mother lode of product development ideas right here in this post. Yes, that’s right – below are 50+ ideas to help you productize, monetize and distribute your expertise.

Why is this important to you? (Yes, MORE important than reading about 50 shades of whips, handcuffs and lingerie…)

Well, here are some questions to help you answer that for yourself…

As a speaker, author, or thought-leading professional, do you…

  • Feel exhausted by long days filled with time-consuming one-on-one client work, running from one meeting to the next, and an endless stream of emails and phone calls...
  • Find yourself frustrated by chasing the broken business model of trading hours for dollars...
  • Fear that your business is taking over your life with less and less free time for creative play, family and friends, and proactive planning and business development...
  • Wish you could LEVERAGE yourself and your knowledge to generate more PASSIVE income...
  • Want to figure out how to work with better clients while making even MORE money and working LESS? (Yes, really!!)

Shhh… Here’s the SECRET you don’t want your friends, clients, spouse, neighbors, or colleagues to know: Although you are very successful, you still want MORE… and you’re really not sure how to get to that next level…

Somehow, some way, you want to grow your thought leadership platform so you get:

  • MORE Leads
  • MORE Clients
  • MORE Consulting Work
  • MORE Speaking Engagements
  • MORE Profits
  • MORE Passive Income
  • and 100-300% MORE Revenue...
Which will in turn, help you generate:
  • MORE Clarity
  • MORE Confidence
  • MORE Control
  • MORE Cashflow
  • MORE Time Off
  • MORE Leverage
  • and dramatically MORE Freedom...

The secret to adding LEVERAGE to your business is to DIVERSIFY the methods and media with which you share your expertise with the world.
