In today’s podcast we welcome back Brooke Butcher! Last time Brooke was on the show, she was just starting out and growing her online nursing community. On this episode we get to celebrate Brooke’s growing membership, and her incredible milestone: Brooke just quit her job and went FULL-TIME online!
On today’s podcast, Shane is helping Brooke get used to her new self employed, location independent lifestyle, as well as growing her nursing membership! You’ll learn how to balance your time between business and life while working at home, promotions to help you grow your membership site, and how to know when it’s time to go full time online!
What You’ll Learn:
How to adjust to your new schedule. (15:30)
How to deal with landmines. (39:00)
Why you should be elevating people in your audience! (49:00)
Brooke Butcher used to be a nurse and after a while of doing that she began teaching. That is when she realized there just wasn’t a lot of resources for nursing students. So, she began to create those resources! Fast-forward to where we are now with Brooke’s membership really taking off and gaining momentum! Best yet? As of the second week of July Brooke got to quit her job!!
What are your biggest struggles right now?
Her biggest struggles include making everything flow together in her new life. She is homeschooling and working from home all at the same time!
She also worries about teaching too many students at the same time. She doesn’t want to lump in students that aren’t at the same place or even studying the same things. But, we can have her alternate days to teach specific topics.
Dealing with landmines.
During the day not only does Brooke have her kids at home, she is also answering a ton of questions from students in her membership. Then, she uses her free time to work on content.
She is going to have to get really structured on her time. We need her to figure out the 5 things she needs to do every week and be strict on them! Just say ‘no’ to some things. People should not have direct access to your email – it sis a death trap!
Elevate people in your audience.
Since you can’t do everything a great way to get help in your membership is by using your audience to help! A great example of one thing Brooke can do is elevating people in her Facebook Group to be moderators. Let’s say she pays cuts their membership in half. This not only frees her time, allows that person (who is probably a student) to pay off some debt, it gets that person to hang around longer than they probably would have!
What are your next steps?
- Start doing one Q+A per segment of her membership each week or month, (whichever is needed).
- Get a process started for automating her webinars. Schedule a live one and an evergreen one every other week.
- Make people share her posts about webinars!
- Have a general Q+A day.
- Have a prolific promotion day!
- Start assigning Facebook Group moderators.
