Episode 22 | How She Made $10k with Kara Fillion
After graduating from college with honors in communication studies and securing a well-paying corporate job, Kara Fillion started seeing ads on Facebook about people working from their laptop and traveling around the world. She found herself determined to make this her own reality and started putting in the hard work. Less than a year later, she hit a monumental milestone in her business and had her first $10K month.
Kara did research about working from her laptop and started hiring coaches to learn the ropes. In the last two years, she has worked with three coaches and got the help she needed to make her own business a reality. I’m a huge proponent to hiring coaches, being in a paid mastermind, or having a mentor to help you advance your business, and Kara did just that. She has officially been running her business for ten months as a VA/OBM. She helps busy entrepreneurs with their social media, tech, strategy, and business management.
Today, she and I talk about:
How she hit her first $10k month in January, 10 months into running her business
Tips on how to overcome fear
Why mindset plays a huge role in reaching your goals
What it meant to her business success to hire coaches
How you don’t have to have a huge team or work 80-hour weeks to hit a 5 or 6 figure month
One thing you can do this week to work towards your own $10K month
