We are here for a hot topic today. Today on the podcast we’re talking about why we did not decide to close our private Facebook group which has roughly 12k + people in it. This is a hot topic as there are a lot of Facebook groups run by business owners who are similar to our circle that have been closing their Facebook groups.

Today we want to highlight the fact that we’re not going to speak for the people who did decide to close their groups, we’re literally just talking about why we decided to keep our group open and some changes that we made since that “change” in the Facebook group world. If you want to hear more about how we run our Facebook group and why it works for us, keep listening.

After two years of hard work and thinking about what we could offer the world that’s really going to change the landscape for creative entrepreneurs, we launched The Strategy Academy. We don’t think you guys realize the amount of excitement that we have to bring you this episode. Not only are we excited because it means the launch is over and we can finally breathe, but we are also excited because it’s the biggest launch of our career, ever! It also meant a lot of lessons learned, a lot of successful decisions, a few minor tweaks and pivots, and some crazy data and stats that absolutely blew our minds!

A lot of people plateau because they don’t know how to automate and they don’t know how to grow a team. So we took everything a step further in the Strategy Academy and really gave people like a full blown roadmap! The launch took off in June this year and had some unexpected highs, some surprising lows and exciting turns! Today, we are giving you the launch breakdown 101. The data, the results and the digits — because you all know we hold nothing back — of our most recent $94,936 Strategy Academy launch. Hear how we did it and how you can do it to!
