Writing Your Own Rules in Online Business with Deanna Seymour

Just imagine a high school art teacher, wife, and mom trying to start an online business.  She loves her students and teaching itself but the profession itself is sucking the joy right out of her.  In spite of her boundless enthusiasm and endless creativity, plus years of side hustle experience, like the rest of us, this wantrepreneur turns to the alleged “experts” in the field, the high priestesses of online marketing.  

These celebrity coaches and online marketing gurus have made multi-million dollars selling their courses and coaching programs, and they have pages and pages of testimonials gushing over them, so it had to be “The Way” only it wasn’t.  Several courses later, this teacher, whom we will call Deanna (because that’s actually her name) is not only not getting anywhere closer to the promised land of the laptop lifestyle, but she is starting to feel just as disillusioned with this whole online entrepreneur thing as she was as a teacher.  

So, is poor Deanna doing something wrong or did she simply get caught up in the “results not typical” marketing hype that has made celebrity coaches fabulously wealthy while leaving most of their students blaming themselves for not being one of the success stories they bring on stage at their high ticket sales events?   Well, as you might have guessed, Deanna is today’s guest on The Driven Woman Podcast and she is also the graphic designer and coach that I hired to help me write my own rules when it comes to Instagram. 

Here is what you’ll learn in today’s episode: 

  • How we met:  In Angie Trueblood’s Podwize membership 
  • Why Deanna broke up with social media for 6 weeks and what it taught her 
  • Why she no longer considers the $$$ she spent on courses to be a total waste 
  • What Deanna thinks is the key to dealing with the fear of vulnerability online

Don’t forget to join us next week for Episode #107 when I return with a solo episode called  “High Achieving Women & Ambition Shaming.” If you have always been driven, motivated, and want to excel, chances are you have taken some shit for this, possibly from the people you’d least expect, like your teachers, bosses and even mentors. Driven women, as a group, tend to hear more negative feedback about these traits than men do and this can be very confusing.  While most women struggle with feeling like they are not enough, some of us also struggle with feeling like we are too much.  Too ambitious, too driven, too opinionated, too selfish.  If this resonates with your experience, I hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, May 24th for this juicy solo show.  Oh, and if you haven’t already, please follow/subscribe to The Driven Woman Podcast so you won’t miss a single thing!
