Ha! Did you think I was going to give you a yes or no answer? You should know me by now!

First things first, let's get clear on a very important business rule, every entrepreneur's business is different and will require different strategies for growth!

  • The pros and cons of using social media for business vs SEO content like blogs, YouTube and podcasts
  • 3 Questions to help you figure out if you need social media to grow your business
  • Are you working for free for Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok?

"Social media is a fabulous tool for building your business. However, as with all tools, you have to know how to use it and you have to ask yourself if it's the right tool for the job- Lindsay Johnson

ABOUT LINDSAY

Hi, I'm Lindsay!

I'm a business coach for big-dreaming entrepreneurs who want to launch & scale a service-based business and build the life of their wildest dreams.

I grew up in an entrepreneurial family and after years of repeating the same old cycle of working hard until burning out, I decided to stop the madness and figure out how to build a profitable business by WORKING LESS and PLAYING MORE.

I was determined to find an easier and faster way to build a profitable business and have spent the last 20 years nerding out to all things entrepreneurship and business development (how we make money). I've distilled what I've proven actually works into simple marketing strategies and sales formulas that teach service-based entrepreneurs how to get customers and make money in a way that feels GOOD!

If you're done with working your buns off to the point of burnout and not seeing big growth in your business (or bank account) come join my weekly group coaching community, Easier Entrepreuneruship Club. I'll teach you real business skills that will help you get customers and make money with way less work so you have time for a lot more play!
