Launch Diaries 006: Day 1 of the Launch: What ACTUALLY happened!

Ultimate Launch Bootcamp starts in FIVE DAYS, but today I have a very special new launch dairies video to share with you. If you’ve ever wondered, “does Alex practice what she preaches about launching?” this video will answer your question! 

Registration for The Ultimate Launch Bootcamp went live last Monday and today you get to see ALL the behind-the-scenes of what it was like for me on the actual launch day! 

It’s been years since I’ve launched a new product and trust me when I tell you, I was excited! I got up at 5:00 am because I was so eager to see how everything would unfold and day 1 did not disappoint. There were highs, there were lows and also some surprises! Truth is, launching can be stressful when it is not done right. From the start, my goal was to not be stressed. You will see some stressful moments in this video but overall, my vibe was pretty zen.

Remember this launch meme post? I literally went through ALL the stages of launching in one day. If you’ve ever launched or planned on launching, you definitely want to give this video a watch. 

Since this is my launch diaries, I get real with you in the video and share more vulnerably than I ever have before! I questioned whether I should include it or not, but I’m committed to being transparent and that’s the whole point of Launch Diaries – so I kept it in!  Watch the video to see what went down.

If you are still on the fence about The Ultimate Launch Bootcamp watching this video will answer some of your questions AND give you an idea of what it is like to launch with me. Don’t mean to toot my own horn but… I’m the most fun launch strategist you will come across! 

It feels surreal that my newest product offering is live. I’ve been working on ULB for months and to see it out in the world and have people signing up means a lot to me.

We are six episodes into the Launch Diaries series and things are getting real the closer I get to launch. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 005: What to do when life happens.

In my latest Launch Diaries episode, I walk you through how I handled preparing for a launch after getting some devastating news. Can you remember a time you had everything planned out, you were excited and ready to go… then life happened?

We are five episodes into the Launch Diaries series and I hope you’re picking up a theme. Are you? 👀. If you aren’t, here’s a hint, it is about your well-being. I cannot stress enough that your launch success is reliant on your well-being and being able to show up and get things done.

Every day while launching you will be presented with two choices:
 1. Do I get stressed?
 2. Do I prioritize my well-being?
The answer to that question will directly impact your launch. Click here to see what my answer was!

I cover so much in this newest video, we meet on a Wednesday afternoon and I don’t stop until Saturday evening. I give you some mini launch preparedness tips for example: 

  1. Write down who your ideal client is and constantly refer to the list.
  2. If you cannot do a major brand refresh before your launch, I recommend updating your profile photo across all platforms.
  3. Spend some time at the end of the week CELEBRATING your wins. Look back on all that you managed to do and give yourself a big pat on the back!
  4.  Before a launch, look around at all your digital assets and ask yourself these questions:
    Is this a true reflection of where my business is at right now?
    Is this a true reflection of how I want to be perceived by a potential client?

I won’t give away everything, go and watch the video to see all that I talked about and showed you in Launch Diaries 005!

Can you believe we are five episodes into the Launch Diaries series?!!! I truly hope you are showing yourself grace. Life will happen, and you get the choice of how you give it meaning. Sending you so much love. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 004: I want to talk about Launch Goals

It is your Biz Bestie and Launch Queen Alex Beadon here, with a new episode in the Launch Diaries series! Want to know my big revenue goal for my upcoming launch?

SPOILER ALERT: It’s my biggest and scariest target to date BUT I feel totally calm and confident, while simultaneously detached from it. I know that harnessing this energy is pivotal to actually making it a reality, and I talk a lot about how I do that in Episode 4.

I have a history of launching so I know what it will take to get me to that figure. I know this is a big and scary goal, but I also know if I want something I must speak it and embody the feeling it gives me. From now until I launch I will name and claim that goal but I will also hold the goal loosely.

So much happens in this episode, it is filled with gems and “AHA” moments for people who will be launching soon, who need a pep talk, or who feel stressed from holding their goals too tightly!

Come spend a day with me as I …

  • Meet with my Operations Manager, Laura, to go over the offerings and updates we are making 
  • Reach out to past Together We Launch members for their testimonial
  • Explain the difference between the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp and Together We Launch 
  • Talk about wellness and listening when your creativity speaks 
  • Go through what my weekly schedule is like 
  • Explain why this is the most prepared I have ever felt for a launch

I love making these Launch Diaries videos and hearing your feedback! Thank you for coming on this journey as I get ready to launch my newest offers. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 003: Time Management & 75 Hard

Launching is an all-encompassing thing, and it cannot be done overnight. If you are planning on launching soon, you must be working on your plan and putting systems in place months before the actual launch date. I know I keep saying this but, I absolutely LOVE making these videos because I get to take you behind the scenes to show you what a day in the life before a launch is like.

The Launch Dairies series offers you a look into all the planning currently taking place as we get ready to release the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp and Together We Launch. This series is perfect if you are an online course creator or if you own a membership site and you are planning on launching soon.

In this latest episode, I start my day at 5:30 am and I don’t stop until 8:00 pm! In this video you will see me:

  • Meet with our Content Manager to go over our Facebook ads performance.
  • Talk about why I spent thousands of dollars investing in myself. 
  • Review my tried and tested launch content plan. 
  • Start day one of the 75 Day Hard challenge. 
  • Go over the email marketing plan for the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp. 
  • Plan my next day, before heading to bed- productivity hack! 
  • Answer my DMs (Yes! When you DM me, I’m the one who actually replies)

I’m so grateful you’re coming on this journey with me through the Launch Diaries series. I love opening my virtual door and letting you in behind the scenes as I prepare for my next amazing launch! 😅   Watch the full video here:

The five things you can do to have a stress-free launch.

Your wellness does not need to suffer for you to have your most successful launch. In fact, I experienced my first six-figure launch when I decided to prioritize my well-being over everything! In my newest video I am showing you, that contrary to what they say, you can have your most successful launch without sacrificing your wellness.

So many of us are being held hostage by our launch to-do list. We feel we must tick everything off, even if it means losing sleep, not eating enough, not exercising… you know the drill. Ten years ago, I ditched my to-do list, I started prioritizing my energy, which led to me feeling and doing my best during my launch. It worked for me, and it will work for you!

Not sure where to start in prioritizing your wellness during a launch? Here are five things to put in place before your launch that will lead to you having a stress-free launch.

1. Plan your Launch | You need to have a launch that is planned so strategically that you know what is happening and at what time. If you want to have a stress-free launch, make sure you have a launch plan, and that it is being worked on months before the actual launch date.

2. Review Your Plan | Get very clear on launch roles and responsibilities. The important thing is making sure everyone on your team knows their roles, what needs to get done, and by whom. I suggest having a weekly meeting with your team to review the plan and the upcoming launch.

3. Have a support system in place | Launching is an all-encompassing thing, it requires your full presence which means you will need to have a support system. Do you have a support system in mind? Consider speaking with your support system and letting them know what to expect during the launch and how to support you

4. Mindset | Your mindset is pivotal during your launch. You need to ensure you are examining your beliefs about money and saying your affirmations daily. You will need to work on your mindset if your goal is to have your first six-figure launch.

5. Everything starts from within | As you prepare to go into launch mode, one of your main jobs is to always be mindful of how you’re feeling. Do all you can to ensure you are vibrating on another frequency to knock this launch out of the park.

There you have it, five launch wellness tips for you to start working on before your launch. Watch the full video here, where I go more in-depth on each tip. I also made a printable download checklist filled with actionable steps for you to start prioritizing your wellness during a launch – click here to get your free checklist .

Are you launching soon? Do you have anything in place to make sure you are expertly taking care of yourself? If you are not sure where to start, watch the video below.

Launch Diaries 002: Creating content: what they don’t tell you.

Two weeks ago, I started a new vlog series called Launch Diaries. In this series, I take you behind the scenes of what is happening in preparation for my upcoming launch. In this latest episode, I am taking you with me as I try to film THREE pieces of video content in one day.

This video is for the person who longs for the day when they are way ahead of their launch content plan; or for the Launcher who is still scrambling to post on their scheduled date and struggles to batch create content. If this sounds like you, then you will resonate HARD with today’s new Launch Diaries episode.

I started the day at 9:00 am and finished at 11:04 pm with the sole mission of creating three pieces of video content. Guess how many actually got filmed? I’m not telling 🤣 you’ll have to watch here to find out.

In this video you’ll see:
• The actual process of setting up to film (look out for a special guest appearance)
• The ugly truth around how time-consuming filming can be
• The best practices I’m learning while getting back into YouTube
• Live examples of me showing myself grace throughout the day
• The process of organizing my business from the back-end

Watch Launch Diaries 002 to get a REAL look into an actual day of content creation in the lead-up to our launch. Watch the full video here:

I did these five things and got my first six-figure launch.

Do you feel like there is a huge piece of your launch puzzle missing? Are you low on energy because you feel you are shouting into a void? Are you still struggling with the self-imposed shame of asking people to buy your products? Do you ever think, “I wish there were a video to walk me through how to make my first six-figure launch?” Well, my friend! Your wish is granted!

In my latest video, I am sharing five tips that make a massive difference and can propel you to your first six-figure launch. This is the video I wish I saw when I was about to do my first launch in 2011.

Here are five tips that could be the difference between a five-figure launch or a six-figure launch:

1. Future proof your offer | You want an offer that sells itself and does not require a lot from you in the future. Is your offer future proof?

2. Do Your Market Research | Understand your client’s needs so that your offer is an automatic “HELL YES” from your customer. Do you know how much your ideal client would be willing to spend to fix their problem?

3. Focus on your mindset | I know so many Launchers who have this self-imposed shame around selling and promoting their products. Remember who you are here to serve and never forget that there are people who need your product because it will help them.

4. Use a Launch Strategy that works | There must be a strategic plan in place to get people onto your sales journey. What is your plan to get in front of your ideal client to share your story and introduce them to your product? Your strategy should be specific and work for you and the product you are selling.

5. Look at your launch like a math equation | It is so important to focus on your data. What are your numbers saying to you? Are you spending too much money on conversions? What performed well that can be tweaked and used for the next launch? Your data speaks to you, take the time to listen.

There you have it! The five things I focus on when launching. These tips have been proven to work for me on numerous launches including Project Storyline which was my first six-figure launch. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 001: A No-Filter Look Behind the Scenes of my Launch

Welcome to my Launch Diaries! In this new series, I take you behind the scenes of what is happening in preparation for my upcoming launch. I decided to do this series because I wanted to create the kind of content that is not only meaningful to me but also beneficial to my community. I am enjoying making these VLOGs because I love the feeling of showing up and taking you with me as I go through my launch process.

You see, I’m currently in the process of planning two launches- YES, you read that right, one launch will lead right into the next. I have never done this before, and I am excited and nervous to see what lessons I’ll learn.

I personally *LOVE* launching because it brings together all my skills and my passions. It takes so much of my energy and I know I have to show up consistently. I consider it a huge personal development process because during a launch you are constantly facing all your fears and doubt. I know that can be scary for some people, I also know being unprepared for a launch makes it even harder- which is what I can help you with!

In this VLOG I take you through my entire Monday, starting from 7:40am to 10:12pm; you see and hear me talk about:

  • How I went from feeling totally prepared to totally overwhelmed
  • Why I feel like the bottleneck of my business
  • What I do to prioritize my mental health + well-being
  • How I prioritize my tasks
  • A call with my Operations Manager and Bestie, Laura
  • New business systems and processes
  • How I prioritize my tasks and a lot more

    The goal of these launch VLOGs is for me to open the door (or camera 😊), let you in behind the scenes, and to literally bring you in as I would my Biz Bestie. It is also a very interactive way for you to get a visual of what goes on behind a launch.

Come with me as we launch together! Watch the first video in the Launch Diaries series and don’t forget to leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of this style of video!

Five Must Haves Money Mindset!

Are you terrified of making more money in your business? Have you had these thoughts around money:
What would I do if I make a lot of money?
Am I even responsible enough to manage more money?
What will my friends and family think about me making so much money?
Will having more money change who I am?

I am talking about money and money mindset! Yes, the thing we were told NEVER to discuss. The thing we cannot live without yet if we want more of it we are called greedy. Why is the topic of money so taboo? Why is there so much secrecy and shame around money? You either don’t have enough or not making enough and want more. Money plays such a huge role in our lives, yet our mindset around it can be so warped.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram for some time, you’ve heard me speak about money mindset and how it played a huge role when I almost went bankrupt back in 2016. In January 2019 I made a podcast episode where I walked you through how I manifested $100,000 and how my mindset played an enormous role in my success.

In my latest YouTube video, I explore five main money mindset beliefs you should be working on to create long-term wealth and success in your life. How did I go about hacking my mind about money? How did I start actively believing that money is working for me instead of against me? I did so by using these Five Money Mindset Beliefs.

You do this by changing your beliefs around money, guarding your mind and saying these money affirmations. Another major thing is surrounding yourself with people who have already accomplished what you want to achieve. It gives your mind a visual that having more money is possible. WARNING: This only works if there are action steps being taken to point you in the right direction to create wealth.

While you do not need to have money to make a huge impact in the world, having it does make it easier. When there are more generous, good-hearted people who share their wealth this leads to a tangible change in the world. One of the main reasons for me wanting to make money is so that I can make a positive, genuine impact through my generosity, and create more sustainable opportunities for others.

One of the biggest feedbacks I get from people about making more money is that they do not feel they can trust themselves to make the right decisions about their wealth. This goes back to your mindset. You have to believe you can handle this. It starts with simple steps like tracking your finances. How much are you spending daily, weekly, monthly? When was the last time you even looked at your finances?

How you feel about yourself should not be a reflection of how much money is in your bank account. This is important, because a lot of people are hard on themselves when they do not hit their income goal. Having a healthy money mindset means you are clear about where your worth lies.

This goes back to what you were taught as a child. Many people were taught that having a lot of money is a bad thing. Wanting money does not mean I get my sole joy or purpose out of having money. If I did not have money I would still have everything I need in life. Having money makes life easier so why would I not want it?

Those are the five money mindset beliefs I explore in my latest YouTube video. Being intentional about your money mindset is incredibly valuable because it will only increase the long-term wealth in your life. There is a version of yourself that is way more elevated, successful, who is making more money, being wildly generous and having a lot more freedom. We choose the stories we tell ourselves. What stories about money are you telling yourself?

I have also made a printable download worksheet filled with money mindset affirmations for you to use- click here to download.

I Surprised My Fiancé with a Tobago Getaway!

My focus for 2021 is to celebrate the big and small things in life. I think with the pandemic we have all had to figure out what celebrating looks like, especially because we cannot get together with friends or travel on the holidays. In March, Nick and I celebrated our one-year engagementversary 💍! Who would have thought, one year on, we would be no closer to setting that magical date. Still, I felt we needed to mark this special day, so, to celebrate I surprised Nick with an 11-day vacation stay in Tobago. We understand that we are in a pandemic and while we wait to plan the wedding we truly deserve, it does not mean we cannot celebrate and enjoy the journey.

We started our trip at one of the most beautiful location on Tobago, Blue Waters Inn. Tobago is a 15mins plane ride from Trinidad, and Blue Waters Inn is on the North East coast, with a scenic 90mins drive from the airport. The hotel overlooks the beautiful Batteaux Bay and is the perfect getaway spot to relax and enjoy being together in the most idyllic location. Our room overlooked the bay which offered the most spectacular view of the sunset to end the day. Who could ask for more?

On our first day we booked a tour to Pirate’s Bay which came highly recommended by all our friends. Man-O-War bay was definitely one not to miss as it gave us a panoramic view of the entire bay with every shade of blue as far as the eyes could see. Although it was a 15mins trek through the forest down we were led directly onto Pirates’s Bay. WOW! Blown away!!! If ever you are in Tobago, Pirate’s Bay is definitely a must!!!

This was our first stay at Blue Water’s Inn and it was the perfect way to start celebrating. Join me and my Fiancé Nick as we take you along with us to explore Tobago and see what we got up to for the first few days of our trip and whether we would recommend Blue Waters Inn to you!

Tobago is definitely one of those places you go and you discover somewhere new that becomes your favourite place- for me that was Pirate’s Bay! While we only got through a few of the things on Island Girl In Transit 101 Reasons To Visit Tobago, the things we did we absolutely enjoyed! Come, see what we got up to in Tobago!

Watch the video below to see all we got up to while we were in Tobago!
