Cynthia Myers-Morrison EdD (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I was having no success launching THE FIX for cravings and I wasn’t sure what to do to let go of my fears of selling a product and my lack of confidence in my ability to engage customers. I joined one program and another and another and finally Experience Product Mastermind and realized I am the one limiting my success. I did the milestones with a tutor’s tech help and Coach Carolyn and Take Flight Crew and voila I graduated.

Your FIRST SALE Story
"I was having challenges with asking for money from potential clients. I wasn’t sure what to do get to the point where they might want to invest in themselves. I joined EPM and discovered to my surprise, that there were people who wanted what I was offering; however, I was not giving them time to acknowledge themselves that they wanted to invest in themselves. I learned to wait after I had offered my proposal to see when they would respond. A previous coach agreed to pay me and my first thought was, “Not really!”
She agreed that I could pay her back the money, if I really decided not to do the class. That made it possible for me to accept the payment!!"

Your PROVED MY IDEA Story
So now I had one potential client who had paid, and I received a referral and immediate payment from another person I had never met or talked with prior to my chatterboxIng. With two paid clients, chatterboxIng continued, and I now have a third person with whom I’m trading services. I still have three days of chatterboxing to go.

What's been the biggest change in your business?
My self limitations and starting out with the idea that my first minimum viable product needed to be the one with changing the world of all babies, happy their conception at the time of the healthiest, weight and well-being of each of their parents! This, perhaps is the 757 that will come on down the road or glidepath as we say in the #take flight crew!

How's EPM and your success impacted your life?
So far, it is a change in mindset. We shall see what the next three days bring.

What's your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Selling a product and being of service to allow others to invest in themselves to achieve their goals of well-being and health may actually be integrated. Starting with this minimum viable product may make possible the manifestation of the world changing preconception of all parents before they conceive their next infants! One day at a time!

What's now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
I can actually consider this minimum viable product as the beginning of outreach to potential parents and young people, and children in the future.

Ana Garcia Ovejero (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I started the course with the idea of creating an experience product about healthy communication; then I changed my mind after a 5-day business seminar I went to and thought about creating a course on how to create a simple business plan to implement it easily. However, as I was almost finished with module two, I realized that the product I was creating had nothing to do with my coaching niche and was not aligned with it. Therefore, I started all over again with this new product, which I managed to complete at an MVP level and acquire some clients.

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
"This course resonated with my story, as I have been going through this heart-healing process for the last 3 months.
I joined the EPM course, with the inspiration of being able to produce something that could push me towards group coaching. This course has exceeded my expectations. I have learned so much about what is the best way of creating an MVP, and it got me into this mentality of having a skeleton and customizing it for your clients."

Your FIRST SALE Story
Going through heartbreak, I reached out to some friends to vent a little about what I was going through and shared my reflections, learning, and some of the strategies that were helping me a lot. It turned out that two of my friends were going through breaking up too and were willing to take on this training-coaching with me. We resonated very much with each other's story, giving me all the credibility I needed. Your PROVED MY IDEA Story
I guess I still have to make another sale to prove my idea but so far it looks like there is a market for this product idea.

Realize that "relationships" are the true niche of my coaching business, and I am also moving towards training-group coaching to be able to help more people. EPM has turned my training mentality upside down. As a former teacher, I was under the idea of creating the content before you can deliver and market it. The EPM approach has been revolutionary to me. The whole new approach to creating an experience product. Also the marketing and sales techniques. Moving towards having more experience products and start with training-group coaching to escalate my coaching business.

I would like to finish by showing gratitude for the whole program, for the guidance, and for the revolutionary approach to mixing coaching and teaching.

Sheila Hamilton (class of 2023)

I was having a problem in identifying my clients and being clear on what I was offering then. Everything was general and broad. I was afraid to niche down and get to specifics of what I was offering in my program. I wasn’t sure that I had enough experience, or how to language what I offered in a way that could be heard, wanted, or effective. I joined the Experienced Product Masterclass and learned that I was more than capable of delivering my program and that I had all the information and experience I needed. I found language for what I was already doing that I could leverage in my communication and delivery. I followed all the directions that were given (even when I was not sure why I was doing it and how it fit into the overall process); I grappled with my own negative self-talk while keeping my eye on the goal; I utilized all the coaching that was offered; and completed every assignment. By the end of the program, I have created a product that I am passionate about, that can be clearly communicated and that has incredible transformational power for clients that embark on this journey with me.

I have more clarity and specificity in talking to my potential clients I feel confident and excited about marketing and communicating what I'm about in my business Iterate to Awesomeness!!!!!!! I can confidently own my worth, expertise, and value in delivering my Freedom to Be Coaching Program - I can Stand in my authentic power!

Nikki Hughes (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I started EPM strong and was ahead of schedule when I had a major family emergency 5-6 weeks into the program. I was so disappointed and demoralized that I could not keep up with the program. I had to put it on pause to take care of an elderly family member in another state. I did continue attending the weekly coaching calls and most of Monday's w/ Marisa. That gave me strength and continued motivation to know that I am where I need to be. It helped me keep the faith and know I can go at my own pace. Over New Year's, I committed to at least making it through the MVP track even if I don't launch as early as I originally planned. I set time aside almost every night to focus on the next step. Continued support from Coach Jenn helped so much. She is so supportive of all of our pod participants and pushed us to at least have a plan for moving forward. And I made one. I am thrilled to say I have completed all of the MPV track and am now preparing for my launch. What an amazing feeling! I did the happy dance yesterday when I finished with a couple days to spare.

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
I was having difficulty spinning my wheels figuring out how to start my coaching business and what, specifically, to focus on. I was frustrated because I have started and stopped attempts many times before. I can't get focused, have too many ideas, can't choose just one thing, etc. I was all over the place. I joined EPM and found my way through the "noise." I did have to push myself to focus and prioritize; to choose one thing to start. This was really helpful. In fact, as I was planning my launch deliverables, I realized I didn't need everything I had planned; I was overcomplicating my MVP. I didn't need to do 1:Few; it would be easier to do 1:1. This was so key to moving forward and getting me closer to launch. Don't overcomplicate. Let go of perfection. One activity that was very eye opening was writing features and benefits for my core deliverables and modules. I can't believe the difference it makes to focus on the BENEFITS to the CUSTOMER. Once I completed that exercise, I was so energized and motivated to complete the rest of my MVP and get ready to launch.

This launch will be the start of my coaching business. That will be the biggest change. Another big change is the confidence I feel that I can do this and will be successful. I am excited to finally start my coaching business and eventually transition from my full-time, long-term consulting client to coaching who I want, when I want, how I want!!!!! It has given me confidence to know I can create products that I want to implement and know that I have a back-up plan that will someday soon be my current plan. I feel completely empowered to create the future of my dreams. Follow the plan and it will happen. In other words, trust the process. Especially when it is one that Marisa has created. You can't go wrong. The future of my dreams.

I can't wait to see what the future holds. Can't wait to share my gifts to help others. Also, Coach Jenn was very supportive and had a lot of good insight to help the pod team. Thank you everyone at LYM for all of the support, guidance, and tools/EPM. It was awesome.

Dan Adkins (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I wanted to create an on-line course and consulted several experts about this. They didn't want to work with me unless I had a 10,000-person list. I don't. I wasn't sure what to do, as the answers were much the same. I came upon Live Your Message and the Experience Product Masterclass and was told that it doesn't matter if you even have a list initially. That rang in my ears so I joined very quickly. I have now completed creating the first implementation of my course and have been getting very positive feedback from my target market. While I have just started talking with people about it, I have two organizations that are very interested and I know that sales and helping the organizations is just around the corner as I persist.

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
I was having trouble even knowing where to start to put my on-line course together, much less on-line. My impulse was to start far ahead of where I needed to begin. It was grueling to think about. I joined the Experience Product Masterclass and it reined me in and forced me to do the real work of fully define the many aspects of my product, focus on the specifics of my target market and do the needed work of fully fleshing out the material I was going to offer along with the many concepts to help market it effectively. I went through the process step-by-step and I am incredibly happy with what I have. I know that it has great value to the market I want to help because the totally cold 'Chatterbox' calls that I have made to potential clients have been awesome! I have set several follow-ups to close their participation. It's highly encouraging and I'm in full-on excitement mode!

What's been the biggest change in your business?
I have a new part of my business that perfectly integrates with the coaching portion of my business. Many of the ideas I learned in EPM are being carried over to my coaching business and moving it forward.

How's EPM and your success impacted your life?
First, it's disciplined me to detail my ideas in writing, which has allowed me to see the areas that I can cross=over and in my other efforts and to extend my course in the future to correlate and lead students into becoming long-term clients. This has allowed me to better apportion my time, plan financially in a better way and have enjoyable successes as I continue.

What's your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Follow the course, do the work. It's grueling and frustrating at times, but when you get push through the frustrations, the end goal becomes clearer and more accessible. In my case, I suddenly realized I had completed the course offering some value. I will continue to make it better and increase it's value, but it will be helpful to many organizations as it currently is.

What's now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
A better opportunity to accomplish what I want to accomplish in helping others. A cash flow that will be larger and more continuous. More opportunity to schedule around the obligations of my course and my coaching, which means much more free time to enjoy my income and my life.

Roxanne Sage (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I was wanting to reach a greater public in regards to intergrating green habits into peoples daily lives and teach them about the importance of sustainability and conservation. I had been frustrated about figuring out what the best approach is that the information is not only welcomed but also gets used. I joined the EPM course and learned A LOT. I have gone through the course step by step, every time becoming even more clear on what I was trying to achieve and how to achieve it. Now, I have the tools I need to make my goal a reality. The support provided has been unparalleled. A big thank you to the entire team!

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
In regards to mission accomplished, I have successful graduated from the course and have my MVP. I have brought two people to the closing pivot in through chatterboxing and both of those prospects are interested in learning more about the course and am hoping for a sale. From there, their feedback will help me continue with pivots in my course material until it is better and better. I was struggling on how to build a course, I wasn't sure what to include and what not to include. But, now that I have joined EPM and have learned a variety of tips and tricks and core building blocks to creating a successful course, I am now armed with the tools I need to be successful. I now have my MVP course that I can take students through and continue on this course journey with my first two legitimate prospects.

Your PROVED MY IDEA Story
Although I haven't yet proven my idea with a sale, the amount of positive feedback I have recieved is showing me that I am on the right path. I will continue to tweak my MVP and chatterbox until it is proven with a sale and with further positive feedback with a student who they themselves successfully graduate from my course.

Clairty. I now have clarity AND the tools I need to be successful. EPM has given me the confidence to build my course and market it. I do believe that I will be getting very positive results in the very near future. MVP - it doesn't need to be perfect before building on and continuing with an idea, you can always pivot later but just start. Start with what you have and go from there, perfection is not needed. I can market my product and feel good about it.

A big Big BIG thank you to the entire team!!!

Diana Straume (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I was facing a significant challenge – there was a big mess with offers, and my business wasn't progressing. It wasn't moving forward because there wasn't a clear idea of what exactly I could offer. I realized that when there are too many offers, people get confused. I wasn't sure what to do because I didn't know what to leave out of all the offers and what to take away. I realized I wanted to create a course, but it wasn't clear yet about what my course would be. I joined EPM, and it was the best decision. It became clear to me where to start, and I understood what was essential for my clients. I began creating my course. The time for chatterbox came, and I started talking to people. At that moment, magical results appeared: I had conversations with 7 people, and 5 of them bought the course. Two participants didn't purchase but plan to join later, in the next month.

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
I had a problem - I understood what I wanted to create a course about. The idea was there. But what next? I wasn't sure what to do - what steps to take next? How to create a course on my own without additional expenses? I joined EPM, and everything was there. It was all "step-by-step." I really liked the sequence, task execution, and feedback. It greatly helped to move forward. Thanks to Ainslee, I created descriptions for my course - what sections to include, what words to use so that a person understands that the respective course is the one that will help them. Due to this clarity, I could conduct chatterbox conversations to clearly define what my course is intended for, what it will contain, and answer questions before they arise for the client. And that's exactly what helped people say "Yes!" to my offer.

Your FIRST SALE Story
I had a problem - I lacked experience in creating a course. So, when I figured out what my course would be about, I had no idea what name to give it. I joined EPM and learned a session about names. Finally, I understood how names are created. Names are crucial because it's the first thing your potential client will see. If the name doesn't convey anything to them, there's a minimal chance they'll read further about your offer. I chose a name that describes what the course is about. I've received positive feedback from clients about the name, stating that it's clear, appealing, and related to the course content.

Your PROVED MY IDEA Story
I was struggling with sales. So far, it was chaotic for me. Even when starting on Instagram, I immediately focused on captions and prices. Needless to say, no one bought, and these posts didn't interest anyone. I wasn't sure what to do. It was a moment when I started taking breaks from Instagram. It was a moment when I wanted to give up on everything because I put in a lot of effort, but it seemed like I was doing it all in vain. I joined EPM and learned about the steps of selling. Finally, it became clear to me how sales happen. When you understand all the steps, you comprehend what needs to be done. And then clarity emerged on how to properly approach sales. Thanks to implementing these steps, clients started sending me private messages expressing interest in my offer.

Your MADE A WHOLE LOT MORE Story
I had a challenge - how to sell my offer? I wasn't sure what to do, what's the best way to sell so that people truly see the value in my offer. I joined EPM and discovered the power of chatterbox and Ainslee. With Ainslee, I gained directions to look towards. But with the help of chatterbox, I gained my first clients. The feeling is so gratifying that all clients say the offer is actually worth thousands, meticulously crafted down to the details, and that's why they say "Yes!"

What's been the biggest change in your business?
It was one big gain. Starting with finally gaining clarity, understanding how to operate in business, how to boost sales, learning the words my clients use, promoting recommendations from clients themselves rather than actively seeking them.

How's EPM and your success impacted your life?
I'm happy. Finally, a stable income is emerging – a daily income as significant as what used to be in a typical month. Of course, I still have a journey ahead, but I see that people find my offer relevant in this format. Hence, I can raise the price, which initially seemed inappropriate, considering our average income level isn't that high. Yet, if the offer is enticing, money is not a barrier for people; they will find opportunities.

What's your biggest takeaway from EPM?
All the information is a significant gain, not to mention the feedback. I will definitely return because for each lecture, I listen with an open mind since they are so valuable and reveal things I wouldn't have guessed.

What's now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
I feel like I'll conquer the market with my offer because it's unique, like nothing else out there. I'm thrilled.

Ian Nathan (class of 2023)

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
I was having trouble figuring out what to focus on, I wasn’t sure what to do to stop my mind going in a bunch of different directions. I joined EPM and learned some of what I needed plus got a coach to help me decide. I chose to focus on visionaries and holistic entrepreneurs and I got very mediocre results and no sales so far despite having almost 10 enrollment conversations so far.

Deciding on which product to build and for who was hard and now I kinda get that it only has to be ok. Making the decision is more important than it being right. I like that I have a comprehensive framework to reference when creating products. I had a lot of limiting beliefs around this entrepreneur thing. To be in sales conversations more comfortably because I actually have a product.

Deborah Alverson (class of 2023)

Your PROVED MY IDEA Story
I always knew I wanted to help people in high-stress service professions but I didn't know how to get started. I joined EPM and this was the best decision I made in 2023. I learned how Chatterboxing can help make a business successful, just building relationships and increasing my network, and I sold 7 more packages.


What's been the biggest change in your business?
Nerves, not wanting to bother people but getting out there and chatterbox.

How's EPM and your success impacted your life?
It has given me the incentive and optimism to know I can do this!

What's your biggest takeaway from EPM?
I'm not as bad at this as I thought I would be :) EPM gives the support I needed to get it done.

What's now possible for you because of your Experience Product?
My business is going and the future is my proverbial oyster.

Maya Shaw Gale (class of 2023)

Your GRADUATION Story
I recently moved from a large metropolitan area to a small town, and realized that I could no longer rely on local referral sources as much as I used to, and that I needed to get my coaching more visible to a wider audience online. Being a tech minimalist I felt overwhelmed about how to do this in a productive way. I had tried several marketing programs earlier in my career and been very disappointed. But listening in to a free presentation by Marisa, I was so impressed by her authenticity, creative approach and passion to help people like me, that I took a big breath and jumped into the EPM course. At first I felt myself being resistant to the strong advice to narrow my niche. But when I realized that this was asking me to get to the core essence of how I helped my clients to transform, I embraced it and came up with an audience and mission statement that reignited my confidence about the value of what I have to offer. This put a fire under me to get into Chatterboxing, and so far, even though I haven't yet made a sale for my 1:1 program, I am getting very enthusiastic responses when I share. One of the professionals I shared with invited me to collaborate with her on offering retreats for women, bringing the focus & skills of my EP to complement her offerings. We are proceeding with planning, and this could actually bring a greater result than getting individual coaching clients, although I will continue to work on that. I no longer feel alone & am so grateful for the support of the Live Your Message community and staff!

Your MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Story
I have always been challenged with promoting my business (coaching, workshops, retreats) and envied people who had the gift of gab and no hesitance about bringing the details of their professional offerings into conversations and announcing their products on social media. Fortunately for much of my professional life, I have been blessed with an abundance of referrals so I didn't have to put that much effort into marketing. But moving from a large metropolitan area to a small town changed that, and I realized I had to get over my hesitancy . With perfect timing an invitation to join a free presentation by Marisa showed up in my inbox on a significant solar eclipse day and I dropped my previous plans and jumped on to the presentation. Marisa's playfully authentic presence and reassurance that I didn't have to have a big impressive website or email list or funnels to get my business seen in the larger world gave me the courage to believe I could do this with the promised support. I joined EPM and am so grateful I did. It was a struggle at first to keep up with all the modules but I got the hang of it encouraged by the lovely little Kaching sound as I completed each step. Working with my coach Missy and absorbing lots of wisdom from side coaching, I was able to focus on and articulate a much more targeted audience and niche, and I realize now that helped me to be more efficient and inspired with talking about my program. I was so relieved to know that I didn't have to have high level marketing tools to get started, and I was surprised to find how easily I got into Chatterboxing. Something has shifted in my confidence about the value of what I offer, and in the clarity with which I can present it. I feel I am over one of the biggest hurdles I had created for myself, and feel certain that I will gradually expand into more promotion on social media and YouTube. Though I haven't yet sold a coaching package I know that I have generated a lot of enthusiastic interest so far, and numbers of women have promised to send me referrals. I feel that I have accomplished my mission and launched myself into a whole new potential for growing my business at my own rhythm & timing. THANK YOU MARISA & EPM!!!

My confidence in the value of what I offer, my clarity in articulating a more focused audience and niche that is actually the essence of how I've been helping clients to transform their lives & more comfort and ease with talking about & promoting my product. "I was incredibly inspired by my cohort and how many of them were genuinely service oriented and wanting to make the world a better place. This shifted the scary concept of marketing for me, from perceiving it as an ego-based effort to make more money to a way to reach and support more people who actually have a need that I can help to meet.

I also feel quite proud of myself for completing the EPM course while I was working full time and interfacing with unfamiliar technology without getting overwhelmed. Over all, I feel more confident about the value of my experience and what I am offering to the world.

" "
Reaching a broader online audience doesn't have to be hard or overwhelming. ..it can be a playful adventure with many stepping stones along the way that I can traverse at my own pace." Though I am beginning with a 1:1 coaching package, I now feel much more positive about designing and launching online courses in the future. And because EPM helped me to narrow my niche to something I am uniquely qualified to serve, I believe I will be much more competitive in the big marketplace of coaching.

I realize that the reason I was attracted to Marisa and the EPM program is because she is a generous, compassionate, transparently authentic person, modeling a heart-centered approach to business that is in complete resonance with the essence of my own work and the EP I developed on Heart-Centered Living. Marisa is a beautiful role model for bringing heart and soul, along with a massive amount of invaluable business savvy and wisdom to the marketplace!
