Podcast Episode 25: 7 Lessons {and 1 Major Mistake} From a 60K+ Challenge

Today, we’re looking at a challenge case study I did back in May and June of 2015.

This particular challenge brought in $60,000 for just 1 of my businesses and I must say, we’ve been able to top this as we ran it over and over and over again.

The first thing to understand is that we were very clear on the purpose of the challenge. Why are you really wanting to do a challenge?

Every challenge can do multiple things for your business especially if you have multiple revenue streams. You must think through your goals before you start down this adventure.

I’ll give you a peek into our super specific goals. They were $50,000 in revenue, engage our current clients, and expose all these clients into a new sector of revenue in our business. For us, this was small group training.

  • The importance of being clear with the purpose of your challenge
