  • How it all started for Marc Mawhinney at NaturalBornCoaches.com.
  • How he bounced back after 2 business closures.
  • Dealing with adversity and haters.
  • A great way to deal with haters is to ignore them as they will go away.
  • Another great method on dealing haters: continue to be more successful as that drives them nuts.
  • How to charge what you are worth?
  • What happens when you do work for peanuts?
  • Great anecdote on the classic movie, What About Bob?
  • Raising his prices chases away the Bobs, the free-ple and cheap-ple.
  • Working too cheaply eats energy and drags down the business, so why bother?
  • Raising prices really depends on the business that you are in.
  • Odds are that you may be charging too little.
  • Marc has a video on how to aggressively raise your fees.
  • Remember, inflation will take a bite out of your prices also.
  • Great story on how Marc doubled his rates after doing a summit.
  • Clients become more serious also, as they have more skin in the game.
  • Great quote, “you can’t light up the world, if you can’t pay your light bill.”
  • Trying to please everyone is dangerous…if it’s in excess.
  • Story about Kevin Kelly and 1000 true fans.
  • You don’t need 7.5 billion people to like you.
  • How to build your business without fancy funnels or expensive ads.
  • Marc teaches coaches to get paying clients without paid advertising.
  • Build up your war chest before you start throwing money into ads.
  • You have to learn how to make money without spending huge wads.
  • Build up organically first, then ads later.
  • If Facebook Groups can fit your business, go for it.
  • There’s only so much you can do at one time, so if you dilute yourself too much, then not much gets done (for startups especially).
  • Marc’s Facebook Group is at 6600+ members so far!
  • What motivates and drives Marc: This is what gets him up every day.
  • Having a kid to take care of is a huge driver for an entrepreneur to make success happen.
  • Thinking back on past hater’s gives Marc that kick out of bed to make him go out there and get the work done.
  • When you had success and then lose it, you have that taste of it and want to get it back again.
  • Once you’ve been there (at success) you know you can do it, and you push to make it there again.
  • Things do happen for a reason…when one door closes, another door opens.
  • There is always an advantage to any disadvantage.
  • Hindsight is 20/20, but when you are going through the storm, it can still be difficult.
  • Haters are going to hate. Find out how you can get past that. Get around that. That is a big mental block: fear of what other people are saying.
  • Marc’s Facebook is: TheCoachingJungle.com and that will send you to Facebook.
  • Tip: If you have a Facebook group: Buy the domain and use that as the redirect URL.
  • Great interview with Marc Mawhinney at NaturalBornCoaches.com TheCoachingJungle.com.
