So I’m really excited to welcome Ilka, hi Ilka welcome.
Ilka: Hello, thank you.
Vanessa: Ilka has a website called www.growinginnerwealth.com and she lives somewhere beautiful, I think in Australia.
Ilka: Yeah, Sunshine Coast.
Vanessa: In the Sunshine Coast where it’s beautiful and warm. So Ilka I’m so happy that you can be here with us today, and I’d love for you to start us off with share with us the results you got from the program, what actually happened for you inside the 10k in 30 day program?
Ilka: Well the biggest results I probably got was a lot of clarity around the selling process, particularly around my own mindset to. So that’s something I help my clients with and I was looking for somebody just like you to inspire me and to help me go to the next level with my own mindset, and my own clarity about how to set up the program. I was also looking for somebody who could really help me to do high-end products and programs. So your program just delivered on all that. It’s been amazing, it’s a step-by-step process but you really get clear on how to do it; so it’s been fantastic.
Vanessa: Awesome! I say clarity is power. When we have clarity, we take action. You have been in this business for a while, you’ve been doing a lot of clearing blocks, shifting people, you ran your own Facebook group so this really helped you take it the next level. You designed a high-ticket program and get you clear on the sales process. Awesome, love it.
Ilka: Yeah, definitely.
Vanessa: What was your biggest win or biggest celebration?
Ilka: The biggest win I think was, I loved the webinars and listening to you when you were talking about how to do the selling process because it’s a process that I actually use with my clients a lot but I’ve never seen it in that light, helping people get in touch with what they really need to see to be able to help them to move forward. And that was a huge “aha!” moment for me, to see I’ve got a lot of these tools already but you were showing me how to use them in the selling process in a way that’s so authentic. Because selling can seem to most people as a bit “uh!” and to me it did too, so this authenticity came honestly. This way to just talk to people in a way that I talk to my clients in the way that I deal with problems with my clients, but this is before they even start getting to me. To have a way of talking to people to see whether they’re ready to work with you that I hadn’t seen before, so I’m super excited about that.
That’s my big thing this year, to be able to use that process.
Vanessa: Clarity around sales and the process, to get people to notice you and raise their hand and say yes I want to work with you. There’s a lot of pieces involved in running a six figure coaching business and I think the most important pieces should be how you get the money, how you get the sales, because there ain’t no transformation happening until you close the sale, so that’s awesome.
What about the 30 day video challenge? How did that affect you or did you like it or not?
Ilka: I think it’s a brilliant idea, and either I had already been doing a lot of videos, like I’ve done a video nearly every day that year so for my Facebook challenge, which is a closed group, I did put some out onto my public group, which was a challenge for me, and then I actually posted a video before I left to go during this volunteering work to my private Facebook page and that was huge for me.
The way that you kept saying somebody is watching it just be visible, just get yourself visible because somebody is looking at it even if you don’t think they might be. You might hear from them down the track.
Vanessa: Awesome! Even thought you’re doing video you still found that there was more to do and you like the fact that the impact on being visible. It’s true, the more visibile you are you’ll make offers for people who can say yes and that really is a simple recipe.
Vanessa: You’re already a mindset coach, I’m curious how did the mindset work impact you or other areas of your life?
Ilka: It impacted me so much that in my group I actually ran an “I am” challenge for us to find 2000 IM’s before December 20th, we had about 14 days. So between my group and, which was 25 people, we did an IM challenge and we got all of these IM’s and that was inspired by you because you were the one saying “I am a powerful creator.” And that’s something I always say to my clients. But I started to embody it even more because of I deal with the shadow side of things a lot too but I deal with what’s coming up for people and I teach them how to let go of that and all those kinds of things. But just having you there saying you are and you can do this then I was able to pass that down the throat to my clients as well so that was really amazing.
I think it’s great to have a mentor that’s inspiring you too.
Vanessa: Yeah. You gotta walk the talk. I have got coaches. I believe in high paying coaching, I believe in a mentor to show you the way and I invest in one myself actually; in all areas of my life, health, before I had my relationship a relationship coach, I have a business coach.
So not only did you enjoy the mindset work but you got some new ideas to take to your clients, awesome!
Did you have any hiccups or hang ups, was it hard for you to commit to this program. It’s an 8 week boot camp, there’s women from all over the world in this arena, was it hard for you to say yes, to jump on, how was that process for you?
Ilka: It wasn’t hard to say yes. But of course when I started the program a lot of stuff did come up for me. The weekly webinars where you were helping people throught his stuff, it was brilliant to see you do that. The information is there for me all the time, that’s what I love about it, that I can keep going back and watching the videos over and over and over again because that’s the way I learn. So once I got the initial I moved into a state of ease around the fact that I can just keep watching it, I can just keep learning from you, I can just keep implementing all the steps because the steps are all there and I just thought it’s brilliant.
Vanessa: Great! To be a part of a program, a women’s empowerment group, you get to see how it’s run and gives you the confidence to model it, do your own version of it.
The other part of it is that you enjoyed havig the bi-weekly Q&A calls. You have access to an online membership portal, which you keep for life, but you have live access to me twice a week.
I think that’s really what sets this program aside. I know there’s a lot of coaches out there that will have you buy a $10k to $20k program and there will be very little of them in there at all, no access to the mentor; I think that’s a real shame. That’s what I think entrepreneurs really need is somebody tell them “Hey don’t do that. These are the steps you need to focus on.”
Ilka: That was absolutely brilliant, I totally agree. To have you there, actually able to answer questions, that’s where the gold was.
Vanessa: And now you can do the same thing, you can run the exact same model if you want. What would you say to other women who are kind of maybe on the fence, maybe they’re like you watching these videos thinking about joining the program. What would you say to the about joining the program?
Ilka: I would say join! Join as fast as you can. Because all those things that you’ve said, you’re gonna get all of that, you’re gonna get other women that you can talk with and be inspired by. I don’t know of anyone else that can explain selling the way that you do it; that was so impressive to me and I think that’s a huge missing piece. So if that’s something you’re struggling with, your mindset stuff is amazing as well. And the abiluty to get access to you to actually answer questions was fantastic. It’s an incredible program and I really am so thankful to you for making it and putting it out there for us, thank you so much.
Vanessa: Yeah! Oh my gosh, it is my pleasure. It is an absolute blessing to be able to do this.
