My legs quivered & my brain screamed, You’re not gonna make it through! GIVE UP NOW.
The barre instructor said, “If you need something else, do what YOUR BODY needs.”

I’m the perfect example of what NOT to do as a business owner: overwork & prioritize everything except health & wellness.
At 51, my body isn’t bouncing back quickly - it SUCKETY SUCK SUCKS getting back into...
Is there a SECRET to content that does NOT look like EVERYONE ELSE’s content?
In fact - it SHOULDN’T look like everyone else's -
Maybe part of you wishes I’d give you a formula -

We are not wanting for HOW TO content in 2021!

Maybe you can relate to this problem.
Last week, I had a client say to me, I have been talking to the wrong people, and I've been wasting my content on people who... I'm speaking to the wrong people.
And another client told me, the people that like my stuff, they like it, but they're never going to buy from me.
So I'm clearly talking to the wrong people.
And then somebody else told me today, I just can't even get an email list going.
And so all of these people felt really frustrated because they're like, I've been putting content out and...
So the thing is, your audience is tired.
I want you to think of how many Zoom calls your audience has been on, how much scrolling, how much news...

So, how do we create effective content without being too FLUFFY or coming down with Thor’s hammer?

But what if the success of your JOB hinged on you getting the answer to this question EXACTLY RIGHT?!
This is what Carey Bennett faced as the costume designer for NBC’s The Office -
I heard her tell this story on the Office Ladies podcast - with such high stakes, she couldn’t guess her way into knowing how real workers at a paper...
The details are fuzzy - but as I waited in a NYC airport to hop on my teensy plane back to Syracuse -
a woman named Amy from Iowa approached me with, “Are you Jen Liddy?”
