William Song (class of 2020)

"(Before I share the story, I wanted to mention the price info above didn't allow for different pricing options. The regular pricing was $2700 on up, and there were discounts available to a small number of people, too. Now to the story.)

I struggled to finish my course, and I felt I needed a different type of help. I joined EPM after learning about EPM's philosophy about creating more fun and engagement in learning. I resonated with that message because my program was going to be fun and engaging, too. But I just wasn't finishing my course on my own. "


What specifically did you do to experiencify your program? Give us an example of a core experience you implemented in your product.
"We played a role-playing game I created called ""Spy Game."" Each player chose a character name, and they were told they worked for the CIA. But they'd all been on a mission, something exploded, and they all had amnesia. So they don't remember who they are, what skills they have, etc.

So, they're all going on a mission in a support role, to help jog their memory. And in the game, wild situations happen, each player has to react, plan, ask questions, and make decisions.

And over time, each week they play the game in class, they are shifting deep beliefs about who they are. And in that process of playing, they end up shifting their identity. But they're doing it in a very enjoyable manner. They don't even realize that they're ""working"" on themselves. It just feels like a game."

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
I'll admit, as I mentioned to my EPM coach, that I did just a little of the pre-work in EPM. I don't think I even finished all of the pre-work. Though I didn't do much of the EPM curriculum, the one thing that stuck in my mind was the importance of students having fun and being engaged. So that message really resonated and helped guide my finishing the course creation and doing the launch.

"Dear Marisa, Murray and the rest of the team,

Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!

This is the first course I have created (still in progress), and yes, there were many times I tried to convince myself that there was no need for this program.
Fortunately, I kept hearing your voice in my head telling me I was full of it.
You and the rest of the EPM and Xperiencify team managed to not only teach me a lot but made it fun too. I often hear the “ka- ching” sound in my sleep now. :)
I have met some amazing people who have bent over backward to offer support, guidance, and encouragement. I can honestly say I have learned something new every day.

A fall, resulting in undergoing surgery in January, slowed me down some but gave me the opportunity to work on my course materials, marketing, and computer skills. I have a successful business as a healthcare consultant, but marketing has been my weakest link.

I hired a new assistant, launched a new Facebook group, revamping my website, finishing my book, and I have some upcoming podcasts and interviews.
I have literally spent the last few days catching up on my XP points. I got behind, but there is no way in hell I am not going to graduate. I have earned this graduation, and proud of how much I have learned and accomplished.

I will finish my Online course Embracing Active Aging, and I am thrilled to see how it is coming together. My course will be 100% better thanks to all the input, insight, and training I have received.
It’s not over, till it’s over. I am excited to see where I will become March, and what the rest of 2021 will bring. Bring it on. Thank you all again!
"

Susan Mazza (class of 2020)

I have been working to shift my business model from 100% consulting to primarily an online training business for almost 10 years. I have invested more than $75,000 in training and coaching and have run a few successful programs. But while my client results have been awesome and my message and methodology is now well defined, my ROI has been terribly disappointing.

I’ve had this sense that I am SO CLOSE for the last two years, but couldn’t seem to create a profitable signature course that I could deliver over and over. I’ve been stuck in reinventing different versions of the same wheel! It has been discouraging and exhausting. With an intention to try one more time at launching a profitable program AND take my ability to deliver a truly engaging experiential program without having to hand hold every participant to a whole new level, I joined EPM.

I learned how to design an experiential program beginning with a Mission and a Birds Eye View and that alone was a game changer! Not only did it get me re-ignited about my own work, but as I designed the content and features of the program all of the work I have done over the last 10 years FINALLY came together. I shared just my mission and birds eye view with the CEO of an organization I partner with and 2 days later she told me she was including seats in my program as part of their sponsor package for the International Women’s day conference. That translates into at least $10,000 in revenue for the first cohort and they intend to make this part of their offerings to their membership of 6,000 and growing.

Sackeria Sunshine (class of 2020)

I know the maths does not add up. How did I make $3900 from a $297 program when only 2 persons enrolled? Well I chatterboxed from I learnt what that was in the program going live on social media and talking about what I do. Funny enough I had deleted all my social media accounts and was literally scared of going back online. But I was literally at rock bottom and needed a way out. Being introduced to Melissa from a challenge that I jumped on with James Mel and jumped on her challenge immediately. Within a day, I knew it was a decision that I would never regret. Got my first dopamine hit and won a $100

Game on baby. While chatterboxing a couple reached out to me for coaching and I went for it, developed a 6 weeks package for $4200 and gave a discount for $300 if they paid up front in full. I rolled over, banged the table, danced, laughed and cried when I saw the e-transfer.

I was able to take part of that money to invest in resources for my course and building list with the freebie developed, plus outsource some tasks to help scale.

I have pushed back course start day to March 1 and continue in my marketing efforts.

Let's just say I am claiming my superpower and showing up as a superhero for my tribe. I love people, I love to serve and I intend to grow my business to be able to do what I want, with who I want , when I want .....Yesssss.

Sending love, joy, peace, and gratitude to Melissa, Coach Tim and the amazing support team.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Keep going until you build a momentum. Then keep reiterating your way to awesome.

How did EPM help you become successful?
Gave me a system and support needed.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?

What is now possible for you because of your Experience Product?

Lisa Ruthig (class of 2020)

This is my second time through EPM. Last year, I hit mission accomplished and planned to just keep moving ever upward. When COVID hit during course delivery and shut down most of my students' businesses, I did manage to sell some follow-on coaching, but I lost momentum and didn't launch for the rest of the year.

When the opportunity to do EPM again came up, I jumped on it. Sometimes you just need guidance and cheering on to do the thing you know you need to do. This time I chose a product that could be fulfilling even if my students can't work, and it sold beyond my wildest dreams.

The structure of EPM kept me moving, even when I was feeling doubts, and when tragedy struck as I started my launch, my coach kept me on track when I wanted to postpone. Now I get to focus on delivering a great course, and I keep referring back to the lessons on creating a stellar experience for my students, and noting which elements I want to include for the next iteration. I made enough money to include some fun stuff!

Coach Andi LaBrune (class of 2020)

"Though I didn't make mission accomplished (yet), EPM has done more for me as a mom of 10 in business than ANY OTHER PROGRAM (and it's embarrassing...there were lots!) . At first, the influx of emails was terribly overwhelming...then it became a welcoming expectation every morning! Like, where's my next email?? It kept EPM top-of-mind. Even if I had ""squirrel syndrome"", that 'squirrel' was EPM! lol

I'm not used to stepping outside of my comfort zone of just 'doing my thang with the kids and hubby', so, during the bulk of the program... I went at my pace, kept up just enough to qualify for the Guarantee. I visualized the testimony Marisa would share of this mom of 10 (that's me!) who not only did the program, she busted through Mission Accomplished - but, my vision hasn't come yet.

Coach Debra shared a powerful visual of Tyler Perry being 4"" away from finding water after digging several holes and 'wasting' a lot of money... If I need these 4 extra weeks... then I'm taking it. I'm still that Mom of 10 who can do this, outside of her comfort zone, and within her zone of genius. God has blessed me with a gift that ALWAYS shows up and creates miracle breakthroughs that neither I or the person I am working with, ever expects. I have message and a mission to never give up. My 4""... is just 4 weeks away. So, no, I won't take the guarantee...I'll take the bike and will Keep Pedaling. "

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
The clear mission and how to create a genuine EXPERIENCE for my future clients. I always dreaded putting them through the same, mundane, I'll-never-finish-it course I had wasted so much money on myself. Now... NONE of my future clients will ever experience that with me; and it fits my personality to the T!

How did EPM help you become successful?
By staying the course with a course for the first time in....forever!

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
EPM has given me a new sense of purpose for my gifts and service to the world and my family. This time, it's really about just doing it because ALL the tools are there.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Clarity. Clarity on exactly WHAT I'm offering along with the HOW - both within and outside of my comfort zone.

What is now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
To change relationships from one generation to the next.

Cindy Newton (class of 2020)

Graduation Story - I got into EPM after having taken Ryan Levesque’s Quiz Funnel Masterclass – a waterhose of training that was, at that point, way over my head. I didn’t quite complete the funnel, but got most of it together. Then I signed up for Product Launch Formula and did, maybe 1 week before I found Marisa’s EPM. Already strapped for cash, I took the plunge, signing up on the payment plan as my only option. (WISH I HAD FOUND YOU FIRST!). So I started immediately on my journey, and could barely wait until the next trainings dropped. I was chomping at the bit to keep moving, but had to wait for the next trainings to be released. I had a slight idea of what kind of niche I was in, and intended to create an on-line course. I had NO idea what I was getting in for! Whereas I had signed up for the QF Masterclass mainly because I was supposed to “find my niche” (like another course I had signed up for and have never finished), I came into EPM with the same hope – to finally get clarity on what course I should create. So when I stumbled on the “Start With You” training it seemed like what I had really needed first. I signed up for my free report and was put on the email list for Start with You, as well as EPM, and started receiving emails from both. I got confused and unsubscribed from the Start With You emails. Unfortunately I figured out later (maybe a month later) that I had unsubscribed from the EPM emails as well, by accident, so I missed both Jump Contests, and lost my way a bit. I got off track around the holidays, going over and over my bird’s eye view and features & benefits statements. I got behind on the training videos as well, but at least attended all of the coaching calls. Finally I got everything straightened out and back on track, and started watching the videos again, even if I didn’t move forward on all of the actions, but it was very late. I did put the basic course outline into Experiencify and set it up for payments but I am just finishing up the marketing preparation now and still need to get my launch plan finalized - but I have a business, a product, and I know what I need to do to move forward. I have not given up, and I know I will keep on track. This has been the absolute best class I have taken – and I do not intend to abandon ship. I already signed up for the 2 year Experiencify bonus as there is no other place I would ever host a course again. I will be at the Jumpstart seminar, at LYM Live and who knows what else. Thanks Marisa and team - you’ve been great! Onward and Upward to Mission Accomplished!

How did EPM help you become successful?
EPM helped me become successful in my journey from - Never had a business thought in my life - to - I have something valuable I can offer which will help my clients while also providing me income. It has done this by providing clear, do-able action steps and easy to follow worksheets, as well as encouragement, a sense of community, tons of coaching help, understanding, excitement, fun and a way to help others - even my co-students - with feedback, encouragement & instructions. It HAS been an experience, and an inspiring one. It has made me feel as if I am surrounded by so many people, ready to help and encourage me as I struggle through. I have never felt alone on this journey, even though thousands of miles away from my closest colleagues.

I feel successful because I am almost there, and WILL finish this race very soon!

Vanessa Nixon (class of 2020)

When I joined EPM, I had a couple of online courses that were making very few sales. I had many other ideas for turning in person classes that I've taught in the past into online courses, as well. Working through the EPM materials I was able to settle on one course and re-vamp it from the ground up, creating short, engaging trainings and developing a concise bird's eye view for my system. Even though I did not make any sales for the launch of my EPM online course, Vibrant Mid-Life Revolution, I did learn much about the creation of an experience product, various marketing strategies and systems to keep everything organized.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
My biggest takeaway is that it's important to explore several different strategies and methodologies until you find the ones that resonate with you and your clients.

How did EPM help you become successful?
EPM helped me to become very specific on my niche and provided a path forward.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
Now, after graduating from EPM, I have a path forward in my business.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Through the process of engaging in several different marketing strategies, I was able to narrow down very specifically which ones would be useful to me.

What is now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
It is now possible to approach my next launch with the lessons learned from EPM.
