Show Notes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If you’re a product-based business, the majority of your sales are going to come in during the fourth quarter. So I’ll talk about the importance of working ahead, setting your holiday sales goals, and communicating with your customer during this busy season.

And I have an extra special holiday treat for you. The creators of The Elf on the Shelf, Christa Pitts and Chanda Bell, are here to talk about how they turned a sweet little family tradition into a nationally recognized brand. They’ll cover everything from those first small steps and decisions made toward starting their business, to tips on how to make your product or experience stand out in the marketplace.

We’ll also hear from social media expert Amy Porterfield! She has awesome advice on how to choose which social media platforms to invest the most time in for your business.

    I saw Amy Porterfield speak at the BB in Dallas. I was a dreamer at the time and all of her information was awesome, but I had nothing to use it on. Fast forward 6 months, and I hear her on your podcast speak on similar topics and I get it!! My business is fledgling, but it’s real now. I was a ‘dreamer’ in May. 🙂 Thank you for giving me the chance to hear her again with a whole new perspective!
