“How do I make time to work on my business when I’m already working full-time for a client?” and more...

In today’s group coaching session, we had a bunch of good questions that touched on topics like:

Plus, we did Tough Love Teardowns on not one, but two websites :-)

Good stuff!

Here are some of the questions I answered today:

I’m feeling a bit stuck. As a contract developer, I’m essentially a full-time employee. That means all my work time is committed to that employer, leaving very little time to work “on” my new business. have any ideas or thoughts on a good transition plan for someone like me, to be able to free up some time to get the flywheel moving? How have other students been able to do this? (timestamp: 1m 36s)

Can you tear down my landing page at BTW, I don’t have the registration button wired up yet. (timestamp: 10m 29s)

I have an awesome client, currently an hourly arrangement. A few months ago they had a super busy month coming up, and I suggested a higher-priced, fixed cost retainer which they accepted for that month. It worked great, and they went back to hourly after that thinking it would quiet down again, but it hasn’t really. Id like to bring the retainer up again, and I think they’d be open to discussing, but they are quite price sensitive so not sure how to bring it up. (timestamp: 32m 27s)

Can you do a teardown of my homepage targeted at messaging / websites for professional service firms? I’m trying to balance how much to pigeon-hole my homepage. I’m considering niching it down to target only B2B CPA firms. I’m planning to run linked in messaging campaigns for specific consulting offerings geared just towards CPAs. Right now those are their own Landing pages, not my homepage. (timestamp: 46m 31s)
