The power of sharing YOUR story and being REAL is such a powerful thing.
I have built my entire business right now just off the back of my actual real life story and who I am and what I’ve done.
Recently, one of my clients in my Wolfpack Mastermind, Jessi, wrote a Facebook post sharing her story, and it immediately got picked up by a local NEWS channel and her and her business were featured on TV the very next day!!!
It was inspired by one of my other clients and team members’ Taryn Vynhalek stories, (which she has been running as an ad on Facebook and grown a very successful business from too)!
I’ll show you them here in a sec!
People go NUTS over a good story.
Stories are essentially how we as human beings communicate and form emotional connections with one-another.
Movies. Books. Speeches. Songs… stories make the world go round!
And everyone has a unique story. Including you.
Your story is unlike anyone else’s because it is your own.
After reading this I encourage you to go and share your own story.
Be real. Be vulnerable. Let people IN to your life.
Something great just might come from it xo

SO NOW, are you going to go and tell YOUR STORY???
If so, feel free to share it into my “Coffee With Carissa” Facebook group, as I’d love to see!!!
And all inspirational stories are welcome there!
The way you run your business (and your life) is your choice.
You don’t have to do things the way you think they have to be done, or the way others in the industry are doing things, or the way someone tells you you should.
Everything that you’re doing and not doing right now you are choosing to do, or are doing because of a choice you once made.
Realising this makes you realise you have choice at any moment to change anything you like.
I made a choice many years ago that I wanted to live my life & run my business the way I wanted to and not the way others did, or told me I should…
And you CAN do the same.
You just need to give yourself permission.
You make the rules. You make the choices.
I chose to not work in my business.
I chose to be able to choose what I work on and when.
I chose to hire more people rather than trying to do everything myself.
I chose to say thanks but no thanks to people who gave me advice that didn’t feel right.
I chose to say YES to my passions and no to things that don’t excite me.
I chose to do what needed to be done to get to where I wanted to be.
I chose not to make excuses.
Choose to be different, and live your dreams without comparing them to anyone else’s, or worrying about what others will think of them.
✌🏼You are unique. Let your choices reflect that.
I just had to share this perfect example with you right now of getting clients coming back and buying more from you.
Suzi, (Beauty In The Bilbs in Yarrabilba) who txt me this, actually does my nails, and she has read some of my ebooks too. The “Girls Just Want To Have Fund$” ebook in particular talks about what I am sharing with you today.
I was so impressed with her messages because I have never actually had a nail salon or technician follow up with me before ever, and so I would always forget to book in for a refill, and my nails would always be super grown out and breaking before I got around to booking in again.
It’s important to understand that a lot of your customers are not booking back in from you or buying more from you for the exact same reason.
It’s not that they hate you, or don’t want to come back.
It’s just that they are busy with their own lives and it can be really difficult sometimes to remember to make appointments and a lot of people put things off until the last minute or until they can’t put it off any longer.
There is nothing wrong with this, it just is, it’s how a lot of people are. Myself included.
The fact that it was via SMS and she asked me if I was feeling better is AMAZING too because it shows that it’s personal and that she cares.
(We are friends on Facebook and she saw my status about being sick).
YES YOU CAN ADD YOUR CLIENTS AS FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK & INTERACT WITH THEM.
In fact the sooner you start seeing people as people, and not labelling them as clients, staff, etc – the better relationships you’ll be able to have with everyone!
And the better your relationships, the better your life is.
Often, the EASIEST way for you to make more money in business is to focus more time and energy on your existing clients.
Simply reaching out, seeing how they are, asking if they need anything (without actually offering or trying to sell them anything directly) is an amazing way to do business, and simply just be a kind, caring human at the same time…
And that’s what gets people actually WANTING to come back and do more business with you!
And, it also gets them referring you to others, like I am doing now, emailing you & telling you how awesome her service is (and her nails too btw, they are amazing).
I put a pic of them up on my instagram a couple of weeks ago @carissahillofficial
So, if you’re needing to get some extra business happening at any time, seriously, try something as simple as this, it really works.
You really don’t need to over-complicate business.
The more you just care about people and try to help them, the more successful you’ll be.
Let me know if you’re going to try it – screenshots below!!
I was asked on www.coffeewithcarissa.com “How can I promote my business if I don’t have any money to spend on ads?”
So, I went LIVE inside the #coffeewithcarissa Facebook group this week and gave away: 5 Ways To Promote Your Business Without Spending Any Money On Advertising.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments 😊
In this episode of #coffeewithcarissa I tell the story of the first time my business ran without me in it for 5 weeks.
I went on vacation and left my stores and everything with my team, and I actually came home with more money than I left with!!
All I did was log in once a week to do the pays.
Honestly, if I can do this you CAN do it too, and as soon as you remove yourself from your business, you have the POWER to grow it to any level that you like, because you can focus only the things that will help you keep GROWING.
Like marketing, education, advertising, sales etc etc
It’s ALL POSSIBLE. (This is everything I teach inside the Wolfpack Mastermind btw).
Anyway, check out the video if setting up your business to run without you is something you definitely want to do!
Leave a comment if you like, and let me know what you think!
People copying your posts and ads on Facebook happens often.
It’s not worth your energy to focus on it and try to do anything about it, it’s a much better use of your time if you focus on moving forward and growing your own business.
Here are some of the main reasons why people copy you and how this can be a positive!
Love, Carissa xx.
