From: Kathy Jo Slusher, PCC, ELI-MP, CEC

To: The Struggling Business Owner

As someone who got into your business to help others and make a difference, you were probably all gung-ho when you started, listening to everyone else’s suggestions about what to do, joining programs around 6-figure blogging or how to sell using videos. Anything you could to grow your business.

You put into play all the suggestions, tips & tricks they “gurus” told you about.web bio

But you’re not seeing the results you expected. Your dream of helping people is overshadowed by the inability to really reach anyone. You’re wondering what you have to do to make this work.

I’m here to tell you there IS hope!

I promise.

If you’re reading this page it’s because you are serious about building a thriving, sustainable business while also helping others. So in the next few minutes I’m going to pull back the velvet curtain and reveal the facts about gaining clarity and growing your business.

Forget everything you have read and what others say you “should” be doing.

You deserve the truth.

More specifically, you deserve to know whether or not you truly can build a business and market yourself. After all, that’s the reason you’re reading this isn’t it?


So, if you’re ready, let’s start debunking 7 of the most common marketing myths out there.

Here we go…

Myth # 1 – Declaring a niche will limit my playing field.

It’s a common belief that defining a niche will be limiting. However, this is simply not true. Clearly defining your target audience and the challenges they are facing (your niche) will make your message more “real” to those who hear it. People want to know you understand what they are going through. That you understand them. People hearing your message will be able to place themselves and others in the scenario.

Gaining clarity around your niche is vital to marketing your business successfully. This gives you a deep understanding of their experience in their own words so you can develop a message that speaks to their pains & creates an emotional reaction in them.

What you’ll start seeing is not only your ideal clients coming to you, but others outside of your niche to ask if you can help them, too.


Myth # 2 – Marketing all is about reaching out & doing as many marketing activities you can.

You do have to actually commit to doing marketing activities such as social media or article marketing. However, these external activities only account for 20% of the overall marketing process.

80% of marketing is internal.

Of that 80%, 40% is internal for your target audience. What their experience is like, what their thoughts, beliefs, perspectives around that experience and as well as their greatest desires.

The other half of the 80% is internal for you. What are your thoughts, beliefs, perspectives about marketing, your value & worthiness, and why prospects should work with you and not someone else?

Gaining clarity around the internal elements of marketing, for yourself & your target, will make the results you see from the external pieces happen more quickly and be more successful leading to more clients faster.


Myth # 3 – I should share all the offerings I have every time I speak with someone. You never know…

Often people believe more is better. This approach is a red flag for lack of clarity. Too many offers lead to confusion on the part of the buyer. But what is shows for you is lack of clarity around what the next step is, around your process & what you’re intentions are for that marketing activity – what you want to receive.

Each marketing activity should have 1 CTA – Call to Action. Again, too many choices will lead to NO! Rushing a prospect too fast into a high-end program will lead to NO! Not having a clear process will lead to NO!

Gaining clarity around your process & understanding the “what’s next” process is vital to easing clients into working with you.

This leads to clarityfrustrated_png around a Call to Action that is easier and more comfortable for your prospects to take the next step.


Myth # 4 – I should take every opportunity that comes my way.

It’s important to keep your eye open to opportunities. But not every opportunity leads you towards your vision. Accepting every opportunity leads to spinning your wheels, going nowhere leading to overwhelm, frustration &  burnout.

Gaining clarity around your vision is crucial to accepting the right opportunities at the right time that lead you where you truly want & need your life and your business to go.


Myth # 5 – I don’t have any value, but my service does.

This is a big one for those in the helping services. The value you offer. You may believe your value comes from the service and not from you. I’m here to tell you YOU HAVE A TON OF VALUE. You just have to know what it is. This value is often what sets you apart from your competitors.

Knowing the value that you offer, being able to clearly articulate that value & owning the value can mean the difference between a full clientele and no clients at all.


Myth # 6 – I’m not a marketing or sales person.

Service-based providers, especially those that are purpose-driven often have an immediate reaction to being called a marketing / sales person. They don’t want to be associated with the old stereo-type of the pushy marketing person.


The fact is, we are ALL marketers. The question is, “How do you want to market?”

The key is to understand how to pull your ideal clients to you and doing it in a way you are comfortable and confident with. That means gaining clarity around your strengths and developing a plan that works for you.


Myth # 7 – I have a logo, therefore I have a brand.

Your logo is only a small piece of your brand. It’s a visual representation of your brand, NOT your brand.

Your brand is a promise of an experience. It demonstrates what it will be like to work with you. It is emotionally charged and represents what you bring to the table while speaking to what your ideal clients are looking for.

Your brand comes across in everything from your logo to your website to the phrasing used in your writing. It even comes across in the way you dress and conduct yourself.

Your brand is the 1st impression people have of you. Clarity around your brand is extremely important to engaging with your target audience in a manner consistent with their expectations of you and building trusting relationships.


10 Ways Clarity Will Help Your Marketing ROI & Attract More Clients!


1. Cut Through the Information Clutterinfo chatter

Clarity helps your message stand out and above all the information chatter out there. Your audience gets over 3000 messages every single day. If your message is doing to stand out, you need absolute clarity around what you offer.

Your message needs to speak to your target’s greatest fears and deepest desires in a way that motivates action. Clarity lets them know they’re ready to work with you.


2. Find Your Ideal Client

Clarity helps you not only identify your ideal clients but also directs you to where you can get directly in front of them. By gaining clarity around your ideal clients you understand what they like to do, where they gather and spend their time, who they like to hang out with and where they go to find the solutions to their challenges. Clarity will help you know where to best position yourself and your marketing activities to have the greatest impact and reach more of your audience.


3. Answer the All Important “Why You?” Questionconfident-woman

We all get this question. You’re at a networking event and someone inevitably asks you, “So why should I work with you?” Clarity helps you answer this question without hesitation and with absolute confidence. Showing that you own your expertise.

Answering the “Why You?” question sets you apart from your competitors and positions you in the best light.


4. Make Marketing Easier

Not only easier, but infinitely more effective.

You may believe that to be effective in your marketing you have to do as many marketing activities as possible and spread yourself everywhere. What ends up happening is you are dabbling everywhere and not penetrating any particular area. It takes at least 7 to 10 times for people to see your message before they actually HEAR your message. It’s impossible to be that pervasive through all marketing channels.

If you try, you get overwhelmed, burned out and stop marketing all together.

It’s much better to be narrow and deep in your marketing than shallow and wide. Clarity guides your marketing efforts so not only are you getting more bang-for-your-buck but you’re also creating a natural flow in your marketing machine to move prospects into high-paying clients.


5. Gives Focus & Direction

Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland has a great quote. “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” Without direction in your business, you’re basically spinning your wheels and getting no traction. You’re on the road to nowhere.

Or you may be listening to what others are saying you “should” do and nothing feels right so you get frustrated and stop.

Clarity clears the path for you to take your business exactly where you want it to go. Saving time, energy, and lots & lots of money!thumbs up


6. Overcomes Buyer Resistance

The main cause of buyer resistance is confusion. If your prospect is confused about what you do, what your service does for them, how their life will be different after working with you, how it works, why they should start now, they value you bring, and so on, why would they say yes to working with you?

A confused mind ALWAYS says no!

If you’re not absolutely clear, you can’t expect your prospects to be clear. Gaining clarity eliminates confusion, leading to YES!


package7. Package Services so Prospects Understand Your Value

Clarity helps package your services to help prospects understand the value you offer. Service-based providers often try to sell their services. The problem with that is your services may be complicated & difficult to describe. Also your audience doesn’t really care about your services. They care about what they will get. Clarity helps you package your services as the solution your audience is looking for – making it easy to express & understand your value.


8. Gets Your Message Heard by the Right People

Service-based providers often offer complex services that aren’t easy to understand or cover a vast array of areas. You might find you go on & on when talking to people about what you do.

Or you see their eyes start glazing over and you know they aren’t getting it.

Clarity strips away the complexity of what you do, leaving a clear, concise message that’s easily understood. Resulting in the right people hearing a powerful message that moves them into action.


9. Builds Your Tribe

We’ve heard it over and over again…the power is in the list. But just having a list isn’t enough. It has to be a list of the right people.

Your tribe is made up of people who follow your message & rave about you. So you have to have clarity around who these people are, how to craft a message that speaks to them & gets them motivated enough to share your message with others, and where these people are at. Clarity is a necessary element to this.


finish line10. Keeps You on Track

As a business owner, you have hundreds of decisions to make each day. Can you be sure you’re always making the right ones for both you and your business?
Having clarity around your goals and objectives, around your vision, keeps you on track with what needs to be done when and what decisions will lead you to where you want to be. Making you much more productive & successful.



INTRODUCINGcc banner_png

Gaining clarity is key to the success of your business. Clarity in your business is the difference between connecting with your audience and getting blank stares; justifying your fees or lowering your prices; having direction and focus or doing, doing, doing and going nowhere; having a thriving business and struggling.

This group is specifically designed to help you gain the clarity you need for where you’re at and where you want to go.

During the 12 weeks together in The Clarity Corner you will have:

An Objective Sounding Board

In this group you will have a group of people with whom you can bounce ideas off of to gauge the effectiveness of your message, make sure the message you intend to send is actually the message they receive, and get insight you may not have thought of.

Fresh Ideas & Perspectives

We only have so much room in our heads. We can’t think of everything. A group of supportive people who are truly interested in your success can give you fresh ideas and perspectives to keep you on the right path.


Let’s face it attaining our goals is not always a strong suit. We let things get in our way; we stop ourselves; obstacles pop up. Accountability holds you to task. The members of The Clarity Corner will hold you accountable to the goals YOU choose so you can turn those incredible ideas into reality.

Inspiration & Motivation

The day to day grind of running a business can stifle inspiration and motivation. In The Clarity Corner you will be invigorated by the other member’s enthusiasm, excitement and energy allowing you to tap into what truly motivates and inspires you.

Gain Sincere & Honest Feedback

You can bounce ideas off of friends and family but will they give you honest feedback? In The Clarity Corner you can expect honest, yet supportive feedback so you can know your message, program or focus is on target.

Leverage the Experience of the Other Members

Why reinvent the wheel? Instead, leverage the experience of the other group members. Learn what has worked, what has not worked, what is the easiest route, what might stop you, what you haven’t thought of, and circumvent trial & error, creating a shortcut to success.

Be Challenged to Be Brilliant

In order for you true brilliance to shine and for you to reach your full potential, being stagnant won’t cut it. In the Clarity Corner you will be gently pushed & prodded in a safe & supportive environment to be & do your best.

Access to Vast Collection of Resources

I have literally thousands of resources I am willing to freely share. Everything from checklists, to tips & tools, to templates, to audio recordings. If it’s something that will help you achieve your goals I am more than willing to share it. But more, you also have the other group members with whom to share resources.


OK, how often have you had a great idea for a new product or saw a need and thought that would make a great program then nothing ever comes of it? This group will help you stay focused on your vision & long-term goals and what it will take for you to follow through to actually make it happen.

A Support Network

Being a business owner isn’t always easy. Often the people who love us the most don’t really understand what it takes. The Clarity Corner group is designed to be a supportive environment where you have a group of people invested in your success. Here you will find others who know exactly what you’re going through, what it means to wear so many hats and the frustrations & celebrations of owning a business, and be that support to help you through it.


When you combine the massive benefits of The Clarity Corner, the ongoing support, the powerful tools and resources, template, tips, and checklists Kathy Jo has to share, and the unbelievably limited time low price, it’s simply the smartest thing you can do for your success and the success of your business this year!

WAIT! Before We Go Any Further…

…take my simple quiz to see if you’re ready for more clarity in your business.


Before we go any further, I’d like to take a second to gauge your clarity around if you’re ready to start a program like this.


Before we go any further, I’d like to take a second to gauge your clarity around if you’re ready to start a program like this.


1. I’m comfortable where I’m at.
I love highly passionate & motivated clients. These are the people who are the most successful. They are ready to grow & committed to doing what it takes to create success.


2. I’m looking for that one magic pill that guarantees 6-figures in a few months.
As any successful business owner knows, it takes time, patience, and know-how to grow a thriving business. So if you’re looking for that one secret ingredient for instant success, don’t look here.


3. I’d rather go where the wind takes me than know where I’m going.
Like Ben Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Taking the time to gain clarity around where you want to go & the steps it takes to get there is the only sure way to succeed.



If you answered “NO” to any of these questions…please read the stories below of people just like you who passed our “little quiz” and are finally on their way to success.

Kathy Jo provides a wealth of resources in a manner that is organized and does not overwhelm you.  She made abstract concepts practical and laid out a step by step manual to help me with my marketing efforts.  Before taking Kathy Jo’s group, I felt like I was throwing darts with my marketing but now I have a structured and thought out plan that incorporates many different vehicles such as website enhancements, social media, blogs, podcasts. Thanks Kathy Jo for making marketing seem easy!

DanaPollock3The clarity and messages that were delivered to me were exactly what I needed.

Wow, Kathy Jo is amazing!  I can’t explain to you how amazing this was for me.  I was not even going to bring it up my blocks and then a few minutes before the call, something told me that I need to bring it to the group. Being able to talk about it and admit how I was feeling allowed me to look at my blocks head on which was extremely powerful.

The clarity and messages that were delivered to me were exactly what I needed.  I typed and typed for a few hours and I love what came out.  I overcame my long time block of not being able to write a workshop and I came up with 7 topics for a new workshop series.  And, it is finally starting to make sense and come together for me.  Thanks so much.
