Where do you turn when you need a little inspiration?
Some days running your online business can feel a little like you're in a vacuum, especially when you're launching.
In the moments where you've been strategizing or planning too much – getting out of your head for a second and getting the encouragement from peers helps. A TON.
Now – I'm NOT talking about taking your eyes off your own paper – because that only leads to crazytown comparison.
I'm talking about listening to someone who's encouraging, supportive, and has gone through it already…several times!
Get ready to enjoy and learn from an information packed conversation with Amy Porterfield. If you've been on Facebook, trying to apply Facebook to your business, then you probably know Amy.

You'll find out how she went from consulting on other people's launches to creating her own products, growing her list and becoming the entrepreneur she set out to be in the first place!

Love this interview! And love Amy too – I had the pleasure of getting to know her over the past year and watching her biz bloom has been very inspirational!
Thanks so much for being so real Amy about your first launch being $15K – my first launch was very similar – small list of about 450 and generated about $12K. But amazing how 18 months later, using what I’ve learned that same program is generating almost that much a MONTH! So it does get easier peeps!

Great tips on launching 🙂
Thanks for doing the interview…I still need to do a full on launch myself so I’ll keep this interview as a reference when I put something together 🙂

I’m still in the midst of my first launch… first pancake has been burned and I’m gearing up towards a second, third, etc.
Great interview Amy & Anne.
Rob, glad you liked it! If you have any questions or need any support for your launch, let me know! Use me as a resource! 🙂
Amy’s amazing! I learn so much from her every single interaction with her… even some fun jokes. Amy is the real deal. I can’t wait to chat this week Racheal!
Glad you liked it Joyce! And remember – Burned pancakes can still taste good if you put enough butter and syrup on them! Learn what you can and move on each time!
Amy’s wonderful. She always has new ideas to test out and definitely thinks outside the box.
Very informative, thanks for sharing this video! There is SO much to think about, and it’s nice to know that you can hire a team, that way you can do the stuff that *you* are good at…I guess the question is, is where can you find such a team, and how do you budget for it? As a (moderate) online-preneur newbie, I am learning quite a lot…but still get overwhelmed by all of the possibilites!
Thanks for commenting Desiree! There are so many options for how to hire the right team or the right people to give you the help you need (and that will move your business forward). Check out my Truth About Teams webinar replay – I left it up because people keep asking for it! Go to online classes and sign up!
Agreed. Amy is the bomb.

Love Amy, Love you Anne – so what’s not to love about this interview. Thanks for sharing it. 🙂
Wow – this was great to watch. I stumbled across it today! Especially as I was one of the 25 that bought Amy’s first coaching program and I didn’t hesitate to hit the Access Now button at the end of the webinar because I knew it would be great content after loving Amy’s consistently great content via Traffic Geyser, Social Media Examiner and FB Influence. I can absolutely say it is the most value I have had out of a coaching program and Amy did add great value – above and beyond. It impacted on my business more than I could possibly say. This was so fun to watch! I took 20 minutes out of writing my own program (yes, encouraged by Amy) and I am so glad I had a coffee break – thanks so much Anne! Great interview topic!
This interview was so so very helpful! Thank you so much. This is my first time being on your site and you brought SO much value on my first visit that I will be coming back for more.
Amy is amazing, i CANNOT believe how far she has gotten is such a short period of time! I think that a part of her success is being around the right people. Working with Tony Robbins is HUGE, Frank Kern? People can only dream! It definitely helped her.
Looking at Laura Roeder, she has skyrocketed because Marie Forleo was her mentor and cheerleader (as far as I heard) I think having support and guidance from someone who has been there, done that means A LOT!
So my question is, could someone as small as me, with no mentor, no amazing story – get there? Reach that successful launch?
Again, I thank you for your content and the amazing value you bring. You are so beautiful and it’s a pleasure to watch your videos.
Wish you much more success! Have a fabulous day!
Hi Vicky! Thanks so much for commenting and I’m glad you enjoyed watching Amy. I do think that finding mentors is a great way to get the support you need as your growing your business. There’s nothing like someone who sees your genius before you do.
I know that working with Laura every day feels like such a huge blessing on many levels. Not only do I get to learn while helping build her company, but I also get that confidence too that — hey, I’m part of this growth – which means, I can grow my own.
I don’t think you necessarily need an A-lister or someone you think is at the top to catapult you, but finding those key people who support you and encourage you along the way is CRUCIAL. I’ve been fortunate enough to surround myself with so many amazing souls online and offline. The relationships are what has helped me grow so much faster.
-Feel free to email me if you have any questions – always happy to support and give nudges when it’s needed!
Thanks so much for this great interview. Amy is amazing and I’ve already signed up for her webinar. I’ve always wanted to learn more about social media marketing but thought that it was so complicated and time consuming.
I think Amy is right that you don’t have to turn your Twitter or Facebook into a graveyard just because you think you don’t know how to use them. So being consistent at it is definitely key.
Thanks again for this helpful video.
Have a wonderful day!
