I Love My Business: Where’s the Money?

October 14, 2021

In this week's episode of Chill & Prosper, we’re talking about when you love your business but the money hasn’t shown up yet. 

You know that saying "Love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life"? 

Well…. I have plenty of thoughts about that.

Yes, you can love your business and make money - but it doesn’t happen by accident. Especially not the millions. 

Love isn't enough for the money just to magically show up.

Are you ready for some Denise real-talk?

How to Justify a Price Increase Without Losing Customers

September 16, 2021

In this week's episode of Chill & Prosper, we’re talking about price increases.  

Pricing is one of the hardest things in business. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone told you what to charge - and also told you the perfect time to raise your prices? 

Well - I’m not doing that! 

Price increases bring up a lot of fear and insecurity. Will you get criticized by some people? Yes. 

Will you lose all your clients? NO! 

It doesn’t have to be scary at all. But there are definitely some strategies to help you justify it to yourself!

Creating Marketing Content for Your Business without Stress

Creating Marketing Content for Your Business without Stress

September 9, 2021

In this week's episode of Chill & Prosper, we’re talking about how to create a lot of marketing content for your business. Without stress.

People ask me this a lot, because I am seen as someone who is prolific and consistent in my business. 

I’ve created weekly content (either a blog post or podcast) and written a weekly newsletter for almost 12 years.

I’ve barely missed a day posting on social media. 

That doesn’t just happen by accident. 

That consistency has made me over $20m - yes TWENTY MILLION DOLLARZ. 

I’ve barely had anything go viral but I’ve shown up consistently every day and every week. 

Daunting? Don’t worry - we can make it fun and easy.

Are you sabotaging yourself? You might be surprised!
