Listen Today For,
- The casual idea and $2300 investment that turned into a roaring success.
- Why he wouldn’t do it that way again!
“I think about all the ways that it should have and would have failed. Only that, you know, I just had that determination that ‘we can’t fail’. If we fail, we’re just screwed. I would never advise anyone to do that – come straight out of the gate like that”. Glen Ledwell
- How he mentors people to launch today.
- The frustrations and breakthroughs in scaling to the next level.
“We didn’t know how easy we had it. In our second year, we did $3 million, and our third year was $6 million. I mean, this was more money than I could even fathom. And then honestly, it was just doing a couple of launches a year. We stayed that at that $5-6 million mark and now that I look back, it was pretty easy. Right. But thank God we actually got better and better and better, because we wouldn’t have stayed there.” Glen Ledwell.
• The perfect storm that wiped out their profit margin.
• The troubleshooting and determination that helped them recover and led to their best year ever (last year).
“I made it my mission to get Facebook to work, no matter what. I mean, thank goodness. Right? But then what happens? Well, then you’re relying on Facebook. That’s worse!” Glen Ledwell
Plus, When The Pandemic Shut Things Down
• How the Pandemic Shut Down effected his thriving business.
“In all the different businesses you’ve been in, stuff like this has happened. And it always is followed by an up-turn. I mean, we’re in a business that helps people online. So, I mean, it’s, it’s kind of a no brainer that we were going to be okay.” Glen Ledwell
• The significant changes they made (and what didn’t work).
“It was more like, from a visual perspective, no more videos or Ads from flashy studios, they’re at home. And every email started with, “In this time we’re in…” because you know what’s in their head. I felt if you didn’t do that. It was just so in-congruent”. Glen Ledwell.
• The offer that ‘just killed it’ (in a good way).
• Why he’s never been more grateful to be in the business he’s in.
