Flashback to how it all started- We're sitting in our office, newly self-proclaimed wedding photographers and videographers and we're thinking, "how the f*ck are we gonna' pull this off?".
Sound familiar? We've all been there. Starting a business from the ground up is full-on. If you're anything like us, you just threw yourself into the idea, full of passion and excitement but you didn't have a whole lot of direction. For us, it felt like scaling a mountain without a guide or a clear path to the top.
Luckily for us, in those early weeks and months we stumbled across an absolute game-changer. By chance, we were recommended the podcast 'Make Your Break', hosted by Jai Long, an international wedding photographer and educator.
Jai's podcast is centred around levelling up your business and is FILLED
with practical tips to make it happen. Elliott, being the ever-supportive husband (yay for the supportive husbands!), convinced ME to email Jai and get on his podcast... Yeah. I'm talking like a week after I found out Jai even existed. WTF.
I must have been hit with some serious blind confidence, because before I knew it I had emailed Jai and I was ON HIS MOTHERFLIPPIN' PODCAST. During our episode together, Jai recognised the ambition that we had for our business and posed us a challenge. I'd mentioned that our long term goals were to hit 150K in sales and have Elliott leave his job to join me full-time. In our minds, this goal was looking to be possible within 5 years if we worked hard, but Jai had another idea for us.
If you know Jai, you know he loves to push boundaries and think BIG. On his very own podcast, he made a bet with me. He said 'Join my Six Figure Business Map course, and if you DON'T hit your goals within 1 year, I'll refund you the entire amount.
Um, excuse me?
Who is this random dude, SO convinced he can help us to blow up our business, that he literally bet his own income on it? (And on such a public scale!)
As you can imagine, we were way too intrigued to NOT join his course, especially after gaining so much value from his podcast episodes alone. I mean Jai even said it himself- it was risk free! But hooollyyyyyy crap balls. What happened next didn't even seem in the realm of possibility for us.
Within our time in the Six Figure Business Map course, we LITERALLY blew our business out of the water!! Not only did we SMASH our 150K goal, but Elliott joined me full-time within a matter of MONTHS! We were able to turn what was once a 'side hustle' into our full-blown careers in less than a year.
Now I know what you're thinking, "Steph, surely you were going to kill it eventually anyway", and you're not wrong. We always knew we had it in us to achieve big, but can we flashback to where we just said our goals were achievable within the next FIVE years?! Yeah. We did it in ONE!
The thing is, you don't know what you don't know.
Let me say that again. You don't know what you don't know.
We can wholeheartedly say that if it weren't for the Six-Figure Business Map, we would be fumbling along, trying to figure everything out on our own and making a HELL of a lot of mistakes along the way.
The BEST thing about the course is that we went from not having a clue about how to level up our business, to having ALL the resources for success right at our fingertips. We got to skip all of the mistakes we were bound to make and instead were given a crystal clear path to the top.
Now I know what you're thinking, "okay, okay I get it. But WHAT did you learn?" We've broken it down into the top 3 game-changing factors for us that we learnt directly from The Six Figure Business Map.
