I DIDN’T ALWAYS LIVE MY ENTREPRENEUR DREAM LIFE!
I used to be a miserable employee to a corporate job in the NYC fashion industry (I say “miserable” because making $35k a year in the BIG APPLE should be illegal!). I had no money. I lived in a strange city with no friends, and to top it off, my boss was a b*tch (more like a MEGA B*TCH! to be exact!) Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. Now, I own a business that allows for me to spend time with my amazing friends and family when I WANT to, travel the world as I please, and work through my bucket list on the regular. (You can learn more about my bucket list at the bottom of this page.)
Now, I don’t say this to brag. Not at all. I say this to let you know what’s possible because if a 30-something year old girl like me can learn to do it, a girl who struggled through school so much that some of my teachers straight out gave up on me (true story! – Actually I’ll share it below on this page), then you can learn to do it, too.
FROM MISERABLE 9-5ER TO CUT THE CRAP COACH!
In 2003 I had my spine fused with two titanium rods, and then in 2009, because of all of the pressure and tension in my back from the rods, and also from the crazy stress of my job, I actually tore my spine. I couldn’t walk. The furthest I could go was from my bedroom to my bathroom, and then from my bathroom back to my bedroom. I couldn’t drive. I certainly couldn’t work. And there was really not that much I could do. It was in that moment that I knew that I couldn’t have a 9-5 job anymore, and I couldn’t work for someone else anymore, because I needed the freedom to take care of myself when I needed to.
Somehow in 2009, after 6 months of convincing, I talked my dad, Bill Glazer, into allowing me to work for him at the company he founded, Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle (now known as GKIC), a company he built into the largest provider of marketing and money-making information to small business owners around the globe. Some say he’s a legend. (To me, he’s just my Pops!) Some say I’m part of the lucky sperm club! (But if you know me, you know I worked damn hard to be where I am today! No handouts. No hall passes. I had to earn my spot!) He gave me one job: figure out how to make money with social media, OR I was out! (At the time, I didn’t even know what social media was.)
So I spent the next months inhaling all of the information I could get my hands on about making money using social media…
implementing that information…
testing that information…
and tracking that information…
The Result – an additional 7 figures in less than 278 days using social and alternative media! (Yep! That’s a million bucks!)
You may be thinking, Holy Cow! (I know I was!)
Soon after, he got an offer from a venture capital firm to buy his business, which he sold, and I was quickly reminded that I wasn’t the employee type, so I ventured out on my own and started my own business, at the age of 26.
I’M PART OF
- I generated an additional 7 figures in less than 278 days using social and alternative media (Yep! That’s a million bucks!) for the largest provider of marketing and money making information to small business owners around the globe.
- I made 6-figures in just 4 months in my first year of business, over $300k in my first year (I won an award for that!)
- I raised $70,000 for the Junior Achievement Organization in Central Maryland to help them start a program for teaching inner city youth how to create and start their own real businesses.
- I’ve been featured all over the media.
- And I’ve shared the stage with top business leaders like Les Brown, and Oprah Winfrey’s boyfriend, Steadman Graham.
- I’ve become the behind-the-scenes business strategist to some of the most recognized six- and seven-figure-earning coaching companies around right now.
THE SKILLS BEHIND BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL COACHING BUSINESS MUST BE LEARNED…
When you were born, you were simple. You could cry, sleep, and poop. That’s about it. Everything else in your entire life was learned. Literally everything! You learned to walk, talk, read, write, tweet…and you can also learn how to grow and scale a successful coaching business… and do it in a way that allows you to live the best damn life. In fact, let me share something very personal that will prove to you that YOU CAN DO IT…
[NOTE: This story is NOT meant to be a sob fest… Oh, No No! This story has a HUGE point, so keep reading.]
This is me in 1997.
Overweight, Nintendo brand glasses, a pretty sweet bowl cut hairstyle, and the coolest wardrobe in school.
(Well, at least I thought so.)
But the other kids didn’t think so, and because how I looked wasn’t cool, I got made fun of by the other kids in my class a lot. They really made me feel like I wasn’t good enough to hang with the cool kids or even anyone at all, to be honest.
I was an overweight and bullied grade school reject.
But it wasn’t just the other kids that made life for me miserable; the teachers weren’t much better.
I’ll never forget the day when one of my teachers told me I would never amount to anything because my grades were too bad and I was lacking the skills needed to be successful. That same teacher also told me that I should start looking for another school because she and the other teachers had given up on me.
To be honest, her words made me want to give up on myself. This is one of my earliest memories of not feeling good enough, that I wasn’t worth it, and that there was no way I’d be a success.
And I told myself that lie for a long time, which really held me back
in both business & in life.
It took me investing in my own mentor (now I have many in all areas of my life), who had successfully got to where I wanted to go, who could believe in me when I couldn’t believe in myself, and who could give me the courage to take the small steps forward that I needed “Make It Happen”, that I was able to CUT THE CRAP and go beyond what the voices in my head told me I couldn’t do, and not just prove myself wrong, but prove my teachers wrong too who told me I would never be successful.
It was then that I was able to make make everything I wanted possible; I was able to build a multiple 6-figure coaching business in my first year. In fact, I went from – 0 to over $300,000 in my first 12 months. (Even though I started my business off of my savings and worked from the sofa in my tiny apartment, without an email list, and without ever owning a real business before.)
Remember, my teachers told me I would never amount to anything because my grades were too bad and I was lacking the skills needed to be successful, and now, I am proud to say that I bring in more money each and every month than most teachers do all year, and still get to travel a week every month with the ones I love. I don’t work nights. I don’t work weekends. And there are many days when I don’t work at all, where I can sleep in, play, and really do what brings me joy! I don’t just have a successful business. I have a successful business that allows me to live the best damn life!
WHY AM I PUTTING MY MESS OUT THERE LIKE THAT IN THE PUBLIC?
Here’s why: I want you to see that the truth is that I’m no different than you; I’m just a girl who put in the time to figure it out — and if you want to grow a successful coaching company, and are willing to do the work, you can do it too!
“I REALIZED I HAD SACRIFICED MY LIFE IN THE PROCESS”
You see, once I was making great money, it was in a dark moment (which I talk about in an older – but still relevant – video to your right) that I realized I had sacrificed my life in the process. And it’s a common thing. So many people fall victim to this entrepreneurial trap where they start a business for time freedom and financial freedom, but find themselves working their life away. It doesn’t have to be that way. BUT unlike me, you don’t have the figure it all out the hard way, because I’m here to help.
CUT THE CRAP + PROFIT NOW!
“CUT THE CRAP” is my way of saying I don’t tell people what they want to hear but rather what they NEED to hear in order to get REAL RESULTS. In other words, TO BE BLUNT, I show coaches how to CUT THE CRAP and only focus on what works to bring in the money and build an amazing fruitful coaching business so they can stop wasting their time on BS Business Strategies and instead spend that time doing what they love.
I AM HERE HERE TO SHARE THE “HOW” WITH YOU.
It all comes down to this: My PROVEN 5-step rinse-and-repeat process that allowed me to grow my own coaching business to $500,000 a year inside of two years when I first got started, which is the same process I’ve taught some of the most recognized six- and seven-figure coaching companies around right now.
The S.C.A.L.E. Method is my PROVEN 5 Step Rinse-and-Repeat Process To Grow and Scale ANY Coaching Business
WHY THE S.C.A.L.E. METHOD?
•Because you want to make more $$$, without working more hours (and you are probably wanting to work less).
•Because you don’t want to put in the hard work of figuring out how to grow and scale your coaching business on your own
•Because it WORKS!
THE S.C.A.L.E. METHOD EXPLAINED
STEP 1 – [S]CALEABLE OFFERS: Create Core Offers/Programs That Support A Scaleable Coaching Business Model
I wish more coaches would understand the importance of their core programs, and how their programs can literally “make” or “break” their entire coaching business. Too many coaches mess this up and don’t create their offerings the right way, leaving them unable to scale.
When you set your offers up the right way NOW (which could mean fixing what you already have), you will save yourself years of rebuilding the proper scalable coaching business foundation down the line.
STEP 2 [C]ALCULATE: Understand The Math Behind Building A Multiple 6 Figure, 7 Figure, and Beyond Coaching Business
Too many coaches try to sell whatever they can to whomever they can to try to hit their income goals (many times sacrificing their insanity and their integrity in the process). But a lucrative and profitable coaching business can rarely be built using this approach.
Once you understand the numbers behind a healthy coaching business, you will understand exactly what you need to do each year to achieve your income goals, how to use money as a tool to grow your business, and when you can hire the help you need to grow.
STEP 3 – [A]UDIENCE: Build An Audience Who Wants To Buy Your Offers/Programs
Imagine having an audience who loves you and who will happily buy what it is you want to create. This is possible when you have a lead generation strategy that works. There are many lead generation strategies to choose from, which can be overwhelming, but all it takes is using the right strategy to have a constant and consistent stream of leads eager to buy from you every week.
STEP 4 – [L]OVE SALES: Cut The Crap + Pick Up The Damn Phone (AKA Sell Your Offers/Programs)
This will become easy for you when I teach you the exact over-the-phone sales formula you need to turn your prospects into customers and clients. Once you learn how to sell your offerings, your income growth becomes limitless.
STEP 5 – [E]VERGREEN: Rinse and Repeat Steps 3 And 4
If you want this, and are willing to do the work, I know you can do this too.

During her 2-years at GKIC, she had access to the top training and Offline & Online Marketing Experts in the world.
These 2-years were equivalent to a PHD in marketing. While at Glazer-Kennedy, she generated an additional 7-figures in less than 278 days using social and alternative media alone.
Since then she has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, The Huffington Post, The Baltimore Sun, and many other major media outlets, and has traveled the country speaking about modern marketing strategies that work right now to build a successful coaching business online.
