Here’s how I went from hustling 16 hours per day, 7 days per week (and ruining literally all of my relationships)

…To tripling my PROFIT while spending 90% of my time in my zone of genius and eliminating anything other than the stuff I choose

Hi - my name’s Lauren Tickner… and I’m an entrepreneur and founder of a multi-million dollar business.

If you spend 2 minutes with me here, I’ll break down exactly what I did to get my time back and finally get to live a little… 👇
As entrepreneurs, we tend to…

👉🏼Have dozens of great ideas each week and want to do them all right now (aka yesterday)
👉🏼Know that the job will be done right if you do it yourself
👉🏼Have goals so big that other people think you’re crazy

Know a lot about bugs? Well...pest control?

One founder did and made a 7-figure exit from their affiliate site.

Details below...

🎯 Rapidly growing content business in the pest control niche, an industry forecast to generate $27.6B in global sales by 2025.

🎯 Lucrative affiliate, display advertising & lead gen partnerships (the latter recently re-negotiated from $8/lead to $12/lead).

A mistake I see founders making?

Failing to optimize for their exit.
-No metrics tracked
-No financial records prepared
-No idea what they want/can get for their business

Fix that with these 6 tips:
1) Reduce churn.
Most can improve churn rates by improving their onboarding process, increasing customer service efforts, updating FAQ pages, and adding help articles that keep customers informed.
2) Outsource development and support.
A ‘passivity premium’ and a non-technical premium can be attached to SaaS businesses that have effectively and reliably outsourced development and customer support.

necesito tu ayuda

@threadreaderapp unroll 

Anoche, envié manualmente, comunicación a 51 miembros de mi familia y algunas amistades con las que hablo en español. Son los mismos a quien he llamado, escrito, enviado mensajes de texto. 

Si me comunico en español? me responden?
Espero que tu y la familia estén bien y con mucha salud. Por cuestión de tiempo, y URGENCIA, escribo estilo narración, comienzo, con el final, que en verdad es solo el comienzo de lo que viene.

Imagina que una bolita de nieve, que comenzó hace 8 años, y ahora se hizo un gigante
bola de nieve. Le he dado la cara en silencio y a todo sola. Por eso es la primera vez que escribo, con humildad y vergüenza (porque soy demasiado independiente), de tu ayuda.

We all face the challenge of conveying complex information clearly, concisely. Here is how to explain highly technical, detailed, or nuanced concepts without getting confused, feeling stupid, and angry?
#entrepreneur #solopreneur #startups #technology #Thread👇👇
1) Diagram: The diagram shows the concept with shapes connected with lines, arrows, or other visual links:
Pick the right diagram type.
Follow color, typography, size, legends, lines, and connectors standards.
Logically align objects and make them look beautiful.
2) Deconstruct: Deconstruct your concept with the help of a list, stages, or layer, especially in emails, memos, meeting agendas, presentation talking points, and business letters:
Draw attention to important information.
Communicate efficiently with your audience.

A million-dollar lesson I learned from Jeff Bezos is the concept of “Disagree & Commit”

🧵 This 30 second thread breaks it down practically
A few years back...

👉 I was exhausted from constantly having to tell my team what to do and how to do it
👉 my income was stuck because if I was serving my clients I was not selling
👉 I was getting refund requests because if I was selling I was not serving my clients
I felt like the people who told me that my “little business idea” was stupid were right and that there was no real way out for me.

Fortunately, I do not give up so easily (you’ll know if you’ve seen me in the gym lol)

Started my business when I was 38 years old(ancient eh😉🤦‍♂️

Since then

• Created a boutique travel company
• Founded a digital creative studio
• Early stage co-founder of Unicorn 🦄
• Prolific Content Creator

If I had to do it all over again, 5 things I'd do differently.
#1: Don't Wait to Start so long.

At the time, I thought more 'experience' was a good idea.

It wasn't.

It led to lost opportunities, competition hotting up🔥

Instead, I would do Start Really Early🚀
#2: Choose Ethical Partners🤝

I really thought a Young partner was going to Accelerate things

He slyly dumped me

Instead, I would select an ethical partner, regardless of age

• Smart
• Tech Savvy
• While I add the big picture and experience

VC’s don’t invest in just an idea.

How can you prove your concept with no startup capital?

Build an #AudienceFirst

- Consistently post content about your idea
- Grow an engaged audience & survey them
- Create a sales page & do pre-sales

Keep reading to learn more.

If you build it, they will not come.

Products are 20% development, 80% #marketing.

Forget market trends.

Building an #audiencefirst & listening to them is the best way to understand customer needs.

Once the audience is big enough, and you think you understand them;

1. Put together an offering
2. Build a landing page
3. Email it to the audience
4. See if they buy

If you get enough pre-sales, go to VC’s and say....

Doing a 100+ tweet @threadapalooza about my experiences and lessons on going from a scientist to CEO/Pirate Captain 🏴‍☠️ of an international deep-tech company.

1-tweet-per ❤️… first three for free!


“Scientists can’t communicate well, write reports, or make presentations. They are illiterate except for complex graphs and equations. And yet the are consistently put in charge of projects.”
From a project management article from the 1980s, still true.

Without a calendar invite, an event doesn’t exist. No one will remember that you mentioned it at the end of your 10 paragraph email.

1. A thread on three #PBOC 2021 Q2 Macro sentiment surveys from Bankers (Sample 3200), Industrial Companies (5000) and Urban Bank Customers (20,000). Surveys data are considered less informative and need to be heavily discounted, but could be complimentary to other data source.
2. Though data came from two diff. surveys, bankers and entrepreneurs have similar view:

Entrepreneur(Bankers) view on Macroeconomy 23.9%(25.5%) as “Cold”,72.6%(71.8%) “Normal”,3.5(2.7%)% “Hot”. Normal got 50 and HOT got 100. Indexes recovered to pre-Pandemic, Q3 lower than Q2
3. Product Selling Price (Raw Material Purchasing) Sentiment, 24.4%(47.1%) expect “Increase”,67.6% (49.6%) "Same",8.0%(3.2%) "Decrease”. Expect China PPI/CPI finally converge somewhat as companies raise prices on consumers. Some Q3 pull back from Q2.

Thread : Why am I running multiple other bussiness such as webinar, broking etc if I am making money via trading ? 🧵

1) This is a question that I have been asked quite often so thought that will write my thoughts on it in detail.

#trading #business #Entrepreneur
2) First of all, I don’t think of myself as only a trader but as an entreprenuer & like to create businesses which have similar synergies to trading or my core skills!
3) My primary source on income is through trading the index via non-directional trades & managing the deltas.
I have shared many videos on threads on the same.

But over past 1.5 year as opportunity came I have built other business around my core trading business.

As someone with a background in finance, the first (and frankly, very fair) question I received when telling people about my acquisition was “but what do you know about landscaping?”. Aside from the mrkt research I did, the answer was, nothing. #startup #finance #Entrepreneur
My acquisition thesis was predicated on finding the right market backdrop (which commercial landscaping had) and pairing that with a business that had ample amount of “low-hanging fruit” when it came to operational/biz dev improvements.
In my specific case, the business had grown 5%+ p.a. for the past ~6 years without any effort spent on marketing, biz dev, etc. – there wasn’t even a website! However, there was an excellent team, incl. crew members, crew leaders and GMs.
