It's that you need full a PROVEN SYSTEM to follow if you want to get a result.
I'm on a serious journey to avoid cancer by using alternative methods so have no time to mess around (and you don't either in your business...more about that in a sec!)

5 TIPS ON HOW TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET
I like nice things as much as anyone else...
But I also love to save money when I can, especially if that gives me more freedom, free time, or resources to make more money and help more people in the future.
Running a business does NOT always have to cost a lot of money.
In fact, how much you spend should be YOUR choice, especially before you make your big breakthrough or if you're just starting out...
Breaking the bank before you have access to the cash or giving into the illusion that it needs to be expensive is exactly what will keep you stuck, so today I'm here to set the record straight on how to make an impact without all of the pricey distractions.
Please watch to learn my 5 best Tips on how to save money to make more money in your Purposely business. ... See MoreSee Less

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT CLIENTS THAT REJECT YOU BECOME YOUR BIGGEST FANS
Please comment below to support Ziggy Holland for bravely being our guest in today's FB live!
And enlighten us with your biggest takeaways and share this video for extra bonus points to be selected as the winner for this week, WOOHOO!
We got cut off at the end, so let's recap how this can help you:
First, this is very common.
You meet people that need your help...you give them your all, you help them for free, you go out of your way to give life-changing advice...
Then, they reject you. It's your fault, they turn on your or blame you. They get defensive. They don't appreciate you...
And it's F.R.US.T.R.A.T.I.N.G.
This is common until learn you some basics & boundaries on how to protect yourself:
1. Not everyone will support you...nor should they. Everyone can be a prospect or advocate though, so as you exclude the wrong people which allows you to focus on finding the right people that appreciate you, send the rest away with love.
2. Ask yourself: Why does their rejection bother you? Where does that come from? Hint: They are a reflection of the unresolved issues you have with yourself...so deal with resolving the core issues from the past asap.
3. Ask yourself: Who do you want to be in these types of situations? Who do need to step up to embody in order to spread your message in a more effective way?
4. Set your standards first: You're here to be a catalyst for transformation. Stand in the eye of the storm with your light so you don't get sucked into their darkness and blindspots.
5. Don’t react to them, don't take anything personally, don’t make assumptions. We're all raised on different definitions of words, give them the benefit of the doubt until...
5. Ask questions about their intentions and what they meant to convey. Seek to understand before letting their ignorance take away your peace.
6. Ask for permission before sharing advice or your opinion. Don't try and fix them! Share your wisdom with those who will appreciate it.
We talked about how to start getting paid for bringing together a community of people, when and how to move from 1-1 mentoring to groups, and how to get on a path to make passive income so you can have more free time & cash.

Great video for inspirational Mondays - my take aways:
- speak with integrity
- don't take anything personally
- don't make any assumptions (ask questions)
- be a ball of energy so people are attracted to you, shine your light
- and always do your best and stand in my power
the video was cut off at the end.1
I used to do that on my fanpage. It might work for you. For me people only became angrier and still didn't pick up the message, and when you respond to them you become less valuable in their eyes. They are too used to celebrities who won't give them the time of day, and that's what they respect...
OMG yes, I fear success. It sounds stupid, and I never consciously thought about it or why. But I think it's because with success comes a lot of pressure, responsibility and obligations. I fear getting overwhelmed and unable to deal with it or live up to it. I'll have to rise to a new level that I'm not sure I can handle.
Yes to business class! (Of course my ears perk up on expensive stuff.)
So beautiful and inspiring
Great stuff!! 43:50 Major "ah ha" moment 🎁💯🙏😊
Who are you WITHOUT your skills, passions, interests, and talents...
And why is it critical to peel back the curtain this far in order to truly make the difference that you are capable of making?
Sure, there are successful people who started out doing a lot of things before they got to this level of depth and inspire others through their own transformation. But they usually endure a lot of stress along the way or it took many, many years to get to the heart of what they do.
But what if you had a shortcut?
What if you could achieve the same influence, wealth, and impact without having to go through years of chasing after outward accolades, and spending endless hours in the office trying to figure it all out, missing out on opportunities, paychecks, and fulfillment in the meantime?
In this video, I’m sharing why it’s so important to get on a path to get paid for who you are now instead of what you do later.
It’s not only about the money, that is NOT the end goal, but it is an essential tool in the journey that allows you to reach your fullest potential and have enough free time without stress to achieve what you want, in the way you want.

Yesss yay formula.
Karin you also mention that these people then use sales copy/funnels after building the relationships in person but I rarely find one that feels authentic.. especially the high end webinars— it’s always riddled with sales tactics (normally this will be $3k, for those of you on this webinar, it’s $999. You can see the value is $13k.. but we want to help as many people as possible, make this accessible.. gotta act now. We have support online to help you. We can even teach you how to take out a PayPal loan”...
I know you’ve seen these. Do you have an authentic example we can look to bychance?
When they ask you what programs you have after u asked if they want to hear... would i recommend one best fit then ask what they think before asking about the 2nd one that may fit them
I feel like I’m great at connecting, but not great at leveraging those connections.. maybe you’re about to go into this 🙂
It's Purposely Famous Celebrity news...not just to gossip but to help you learn lessons on how to make a bigger impact from the most visible people in the world (i.e. Hollywood) and avoid the pitfalls of being in the limelight.
I also gave a BIG shoutout to our brave PF friends who shared their person story last week...and quoted one of them at the end so we ended on an inspirational note!
I'd like to keep giving these kinds of updates every Friday (aka official Purposely Famous Fridays!), let me know your thoughts...
Last week in Purposely Famous news, I heard that top Hollywood actors are making less money than ever per movie.
That’s great news for you!
Why? Because just having a fancy famous name anymore isn’t enough anymore. Technology and social media makes is easier for the unknown person to rise to stardom which is making the once untouchable Hollywood star come down a notch (or more).
But as this switch is happening, there are SO many unknown people rising up out of the woodwork.
And they seem to have it all together. They have:
-Clear messaging and branding -Marketing campaigns that work -100’s to 1,000’s to millions of followers -Dream teams that help them run the business -A clear roadmap so they know what to do next and how to avoid losing time, money, and their freedom -They are confident, poised, and gain respect easily
Last week, then a select number of very brave Purposely Famous friends shared their inspirational life stories... (I'll announce the scholarship winners later this week, stay tuned!)
It’s clear that this is about something that’s so much bigger than you, but first...we have to make you and your needs a priority again.
For those of you planning on reaching your fullest potential, your fullest level, and impact, do you have all of these things together?
Because these are the basic elements you need to have in place in order to run a profitable and purposeful business.
If you’re even a tiny bit concerned that you don’t have all of this in order and you’re serious about getting to the next level in your business and life, then please PM me and I can give direct advice on your next best steps.
Over the past years, I’ve helped people from all walks of life create the roadmap so they stop guessing.
So if you don’t believe in taking chances when it comes to your future, let’s talk!
Did Justin Bieber just confirm that you are Purposely Famous?
Today was a busy day at the Purposely Famous headquarters...
But I had to still share this news before the day ends...
I can't believe I'm quoting Justin Bieber (no judgment, just had never been into his music much), but he did say something brilliant yesterday:
"Don't be fooled thinking famous people have a better life than yours, I can promise you it's not!"
Whether you like him or not, he is a top influencer in the world.
Sounds like he's had to find this out the hard way so it's good to know, wherever you are in your journey now!
It's not just about the money or fame, but it certainly makes life easier if you have a positive message to share.
So it's better to respect those that have made it THEN quickly move on to get back to your hustle and grind and make it happen for you and your dreams.Did Justin Bieber confirm that you are Purposely Famous?

Last week in my Academy, we did a 5-day video challenge and your highly esteemed members rocked it!
A few even posted their videos in our network here so please check them out.
Just think...more amazing people like you sharing their wisdom to their own networks, their friends', mine, and more spreads so much more purposeful and positive energy in the world...yeah!
So...the next step to keep on movin' up would be to try "batching."
We do this with a celebrity when they do press and media interviews. Check it out here and keep on speaking out loud and proud!
Also, I'm finding out that some of you haven't seen my free Master Class yet "What I learned from working with the top 1% of the Rich and Famous" - so I highly recommend to check it out here, it's full of lots of good stuff to keep you inspired over the weekend! ... See MoreSee Less
Oprah does it. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen does it. Many other successful influencers, millionaires, and billionaires around the world allegedly do it every day, too. And if you haven’t plastered photos of it all over every social media platform or downloaded the latest meditation app, you almost feel left out!
Ok, maybe that’s just me. (DISCLAIMER: Guilty👏 As👏 Charged👏) Here’s my own “Meditation’s Greatest Hits” compilation, in which I spend 130 days meditating...in public. I’ll explain later the REAL reason behind why I did this because it was definitely NOT to show off or be fake.
That brings us to the bigger question: Do you really need to meditate EVERY DAY? Does it help you to have more success in your business? To make more money? To find love and to keep it? To feel less stressed in the face of deadlines, time constraints, and that feeling of being undervalued by the people around you? Take it from me, someone who sat in silence for an entire year (ok, 99% of the year, because it was really hard...)
THAT IS THE WRONG QUESTION TO ASK.
Here’s my honest perspective about daily meditation as someone who integrated back into the “real world” - aka not in a monastery. The truth is, I don’t meditate every day anymore. Nope. Not gonna do it. I go through phases. It helps, then it doesn’t, then it does. Sometimes I like it, then I don’t. I’ve seen firsthand that there are MANY paths to reaching the same end - one of complete fulfillment, peace of mind, and happiness. And they ALL work. Today, it might be meditation. Tomorrow, it might be exercise. You could invest in a coach, a therapist, or a healer - they all help tons, too. Or reading Letting Go by David Hawkins - FABULOUS book.
It’s much better to focus on knowing WHEN you’re stuck in negative thoughts - doubt, self-sabotage, shame, guilt, and anger to name a few, then taking immediate action to release them. Are you aware of when you’re down AND taking action to do something about it, without hesitation? And by “action” that could mean doing absolutely nothing…aka MEDITATION. The worst thing you can do is just sit there, convinced that binge-watching Netflix or going on a chocolate cake bender is the solution. No judgment, I’ve done BOTH these things before (I told you that I’d be honest)!
But, I don’t do them anymore. I know my life purpose now and meditation played an ENORMOUS role in helping me find it. So, as a super-fan of meditation for the greater good, let me share with you the absolute #1 reason why you SHOULD meditate:
It’s an intense inner boot camp. You’re probably not spending most of your day sitting with your eyes closed. BUT, never forget that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. If you can learn how to control and compartmentalize your inner world, the outer world will ALWAYS work in your favor. A.L.W.A.Y.S. Because it’s not about things getting easier. NEWSFLASH: Life never gets easier. There will always be more things to do, more bills to pay, more distractions that stress you out or that eat up your precious time. But, once you learn how to HANDLE it all with ease and grace, EVERYTHING will fall into place because YOU DID THE INNER WORK first.
When you sit with your eyes closed in meditation and make a commitment to stop reacting to your thoughts or move impulsively, it becomes a training ground for learning how to WAIT AND THINK BEFORE YOU ACT. If you can do this in meditation, you’ll be able to react less to your negative thoughts and impulsive motives in daily life, too. You’ll be able to take back control and power over your life on your own terms instead of being dragged along by the scripts the wrong people or society wrote for you.
And let’s get real. If you have reoccurring setbacks and emotional roadblocks that keep coming up, MEDITATE. DAILY. UNTIL THEY ARE GONE. Then you can stop (if you want). There is a time and a place to meditate daily, and that calls for drastic measures, so go for it! The discipline will do you wonders. You’ll stop spinning in circles. But, you’ve got to slow your roll on the inside first. Make sense?
Thanks so much for reading, it’s fun sharing this kind of stuff with you 🙂I've learned so much about myself, the world, other people, and even animals (as you'll see in the video!) from pushing out of my comfort zone to sit for a m... ... See MoreSee Less
I am the biggest fan of having a great brand … but not when it works against you.
I love the brands that have succinct copy that hits you in your heart and soul. So much that you can’t help but love buying from them.
Their design, logos, colors and images make you feel safe, empowered, and warm.
But it’s also a myth that you need all of those things perfectly done and packaged before you can make a same kind of impact that a great brand can make.
Because the bottom line is that people want their problems solved, and for you to see who they are on a deeper level than the norm.
And your ability to do this requires nothing more than you.
So, if you:
Don’t have the time, money or resources to create the fancy bells and whistles for brand …
If you prefer to be more no-frills, and more “let’s just go out and help people NOW” …
If you like being a minimalist, behind the scenes, or discreet …
If you’re focused on sustainability and money maintaining, long-term impact and profit …
Then I suggest forgetting about bending over backwards to create the perfect brand for the short-term. Start focusing on SERVING and HELPING people instead.
Why? Because the perfect brand is you.
It’s your wisdom, skills, purpose, and contribution to the planet. And you can start by sharing these things with people in a simple conversation. Ask them…
What are you problems, struggles, and challenges? What are your dreams, hopes, and aspirations? Why do you not have everything you want yet?
It’s much better to connect deeply with 1 person than with 100 who “like” your Facebook post for a nano-second.
I see way too many people out there trying to look as fancy as the already established Jack Canfields, Marie Forleos, Lewis Howes, and Tony Robbins’ of the world.
Don’t get me wrong – these people have fantastic branding. But they did not when they first started out.
Like everyone else, it took them years to make the profit and loyal following. Long before they could put all the fancy colors and packaging together.
Here’s my advice to entrepreneurs who are striving to develop the perfect branding.
Forget creating fancy memes that don’t get a lot of likes or comments. Share in-depth valuable content that really grabs people’s attention instead.
Forget making fancy videos with edited intros, outros, and subtitles and just pull out your phone and record it on there. Upload it directly to social media.
Forget comparing yourself to other people who already spent years behind the scenes building their following from scratch. AKA every role model you see in the spotlight. Focus on listening and genuinely helping people instead.
I know tons of people who make a lot of money, they don’t have a website, they don’t post on social media, but they know EVERY influencer behind the scenes.
But since they focus on building deeper, meaningful relationships, they don’t even have to look for clients. Word gets around that they actually care about people, and that sends out tiny dopamine hits to the right people who need it.
Could they make a bigger impact if they did have a website and post on social media more?
In the end, it’s your choice...but at least you have a choice if your foundation is built on solid relationships first.
Even for me, I’ll admit that my own branding is not perfect. Sometimes I use fonts and letterhead that don’t match. And not every webpage has a sustained design.
But I’ve still been able to run a profitable business. By helping ordinary people create a customized path to make an extraordinary impact. I did this without any social media following. I did not invest in paid marketing for four years.
Don’t get caught up in the rat race, or else you’ll always be left behind in crumbs.
Be confident that you are capable of helping people now. Get the right guidance from someone else who can see who you are and give you the nudge to get out there right now. Not later.
And I’m curious...are you ready to go out and help people as you are, just being you, right now? Or do you feel like you need more clarity or confidence before doing so? ... See MoreSee Less
When I refer to reaching your “big BREAKTHROUGH point” in your business, I’m referring to a time in the future when you’re so well-known as an authority that amazing opportunities and influencers come to you (no more chasing, yeah!).
However, I get really frustrated when I hear people say, “all you need to do is THIS one thing for your business and you’ll start making millions, reaching millions, and feel completely happy with yourself!’ The truth is, there is NO such shortcut to building a solid business. Business and success come in different phases and stages.
And you’ll have to deal with many moving parts...
I’m not saying you have to MASTER all of them before you can be successful.
But you WILL have to develop your skills and mindset in multiple areas if you’re serious about making an impact and earning big profits to match.
That way, you’ll be ready for eve more greatness that comes AFTER reaching your big breakthrough point and be able to handle it properly.
Now instead of giving you some magic solution (unlike so many others that promise that falsely!)...
Let me share with you 5 steps you need to focus on that will REALISTICALLY help you get further in your business and prepare you for your big break.
Building a strong foundation is key, so first of all:
1. You need to know who you are and who you serve YOU have to decide what you want to be KNOWN for, or else other people (aka the wrong ones) will decide it for you.
And that sucks.
Once you are crystal clear on who you are and how YOU want to be serving the world, everything you do will align with ease and you’re confidence will skyrocket.
This kind of clarity takes effort, and with the right guidance it’s something that you can establish quickly with a proven, tangible system to follow, such as in the Purposely Famous Academy.
2. Help a small number of people on a DEEP level first
Forget about helping the masses for now...that comes later, so more about that in a moment), or making fun memes or videos that only our mom and dog reads, lol.
Share your wisdom and gifts with people that appreciate you and see that you can help them...
AKA Your own personal Tribe.
Talk to them.
Ask them questions.
Then make your own conclusion about what THEY need and how YOU can help them solve their problems in the best way you possibly can.
3. Master the money game
Maybe you have some, maybe you don’t.
Maybe you inherited some, or worked really hard for it.
Maybe you still need some time to figure it out how to get some.
The truth is, if you want to help a lot of people, you’ll have to reinvest in yourself and your business in order to have resources needed to do what you love to do....
And you’ll need to be able to afford it.
The best strategy here is to master the money game...so you can “play” with the “big boys,” the people who have already made their millions and influence.
So focus on turning your gifts and wisdom into passive income streams, such as into books, courses, workshops, and products.
Your wisdom is the strongest weapon you have to become an equal to those who are more influential than you are.
Passive income allows you to spread it to an unlimited number of people, make an unlimited amount of money, and finally have the free time to stay innovative and stress-free.
4. Replicate and duplicate your impact to the Masses
Moving on from your small Tribe you can upgrade to replicate your success and impact with the Masses!
This is a logical and tangible process to build a movement to start reaching hundreds or even thousands or millions of people.
The Masses wants transformation and a new perspective on life, and only rarely to buy something.
Share the stuff that counts - your thoughts, ideas, and challenge the status quo - because this is where Thought Leadership starts and counts the most, and watch the people come to you in droves for all the right reasons.
5. Bulletproof your Mindset with your Core Values
You might think that being more productive, managing your time and becoming more organized are tactical things.
Perhaps on the outside, but if you’re not mastering the concepts of these things INSIDE your mind, you’ll never reach your goals.
This FEELING of overwhelm while you have a business to run, a family to take care of…
All boils down at the core to mastering your mindset FIRST.
You need to be able to stand in the eye of the storm, while staying calm, cool and collected...
And learn how to manage all of it with grace and ease. ------------ These 5 steps are things that you can practice to become better in, because it’s never just “one thing.”
And at the end of the day, it’s about so much more than mastering a few key steps.
This is about buckling down to do what it takes to live a better life…
To create better opportunities for yourself and your loved ones…
And settling for MORE freedom that you deserve along the way.
So...which step are you the most masterful at or which do you struggle with the most? For me, it used to be my mindset...the glass was half empty but not it's always half full 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
I remember the time I got my first coaching client...by accident. I was on the phone with a call center, trying to get my computer fixed. The technician helping me asked what I did for a living. I proudly said, “I help people reach their dreams…” Then let my voice trail off.
If you know anything about pitches, that’s the most cliche pitch I’ve ever heard of, even ‘til this day, lol. Although it’s what I wanted to do in my heart...it’s vague and super “woo-woohey.”
And I had two weeks left to finish my coaching certification program, so wasn’t even an official coach yet. I didn’t know how to present what I did yet or who my “Tribe” was, I was a rookie in the transformational world. But I tried. That was enough.
The girl on the phone sighed and the floodgates opened. “I hate my job,” she said. I sighed in empathy for her. I told her about the time I got fired from my “supposed” dream jobs (yes, twice in fact...I share about it here). AKA - Yep, it sucks to do work that you don’t love, right?
So I asked her, “What is your dream job if you could do anything you want?” She said, “I want to be a probation officer for felons.” I couldn’t believe the words that came out of my mouth next, but I said, “I can help you do that.”
Did I mention that this girl was a super sweet, 5 feet tall petite, I-don’t-have-an-ounce-of- bad-in-me-but-please-help-me-supervise-the-worst-criminals-in-our-country type of girl? Then, she said, “I have to pass an advanced math class to get the job. By the way, I failed math back when I was in school.” Once again, I opened my big mouth. “I can help you pass that too.”
Did I mention that I’ve sucked at math my entire life...and still do? (I wish the Asian stereotype of being good at math applied to me, but it doesn’t!) By the end of the phone call, I had my first client. The next day, she quit her job. She paid me. I was sweating bullets.
Fast forward three months later: She passed the math test. She got the job. My confidence was boosted. I was unstoppable. And I still suck a math.
Fast forward 5 years later:
Today I’m VERY clear on who my Tribe is: I help ordinary people create a customized path so that can reach their extraordinary dreams. In my career as a talent agent for high profile public figures and celebrities, I was a pro at helping other people find their Tribe.
But when it came to finding my own Tribe based on my purpose and essence, I had blind spots. I wish I would have had a mentor to help me figure this out faster.
If you had a mentor helping you find yours too, you’ll finally be able to live your passion and dreams faster too. That’s why I’m going to share 3 tips that will help you find your Tribe and ease your mind that they are still out there waiting for you (don’t give up hope yet!).
But first, as you can see, you don’t need to know who your exact Tribe is when you’re just starting out in business.... Nor to get paid for someone that needs your help.
Since you have so many different skills, talents, passions, and interests, you will always be able to help more than one group of people. That is a good thing.
But it can be confusing, especially pinpointing that group of people who love you and love paying you to change their life for the better.
Staying confused is NOT an option for you though. It’ll keep you staying small forever. You’re better than that. You know you are...and I do too.
So here are the 3 tips: 1. Be a problem solver...for anything: Just like I figured out that I can help someone with problems that don’t even relate to me, you can do the same. When you’re not clear on your perfect avatar yet, use your intelligence, intuition, and critical thinking skills to solve anyone’s problems that come your way. Charge them for it and they’ll be more committed to get results.
2. Brainstorm: Take out a piece of paper and write out EVERY type of group you’d like to help. Don’t leave anyone out. Add corporations, governments, schools, non-profits, investors, and sponsors...because no matter what final Tribe you focus on in the future, you’ll eventually connect to these if your strategic to make a big impact. Feel good knowing that you have abilities to help so many different people. One day, with the right guidance to put it all in order, you’ll be able to help them all.
3. Pick one to focus on first: Who do you enjoy working with the most AND who can pay you your highest rates? It’s easier to get a small number of clients who pay you premium rates. Save the masses - a large number of people who pay small fees - for later.
In a world with 7 billion people in it, accept the fact that the RIGHT people are thirsty for your help.
Yes, it’s a FACT.Confusion is just an excuse.
If you are truly committed to serve the world at the higher level, then GET HELP to clarify this important element in your business NOW.
And the truth is, it’s NOT cringe worthy to help people reach their dreams. That’s what I do...and you do to.
But if you want to make a bigger impact...getting help to clarify who you serve will accelerate your progress 10x faster than trying to figure this out on your own.
There are so many moving parts to run a profitable and purposeful business. This is one of the first steps that you need to take to build your confidence and to make you feel good about making money while helping people reach their dreams.
So...who's your Tribe and what gets you fired up to help them? Or if you can't find them or connect with them...let me know and I'll help you nail this! ... See MoreSee Less
Someone who has a vested interest in your success. Someone who believes in you. Someone who sees your potential.
Call them a coach. A guru. Or a mentor. It’s not the name that matters. It’s the effect.
For me, it was my first boss after college. A big hot shot Hollywood producer who gave a small town Idaho girl like me a chance.
When I told him I didn’t know how to organize a press conference, he said, “Yes, you do.”
When I told him I didn’t know how to negotiate a multi-million dollar contract, he said, “Yes, you can.”
When I didn’t feel good enough to talk to a fancy-schmancy celebrity (In the beginning, I never felt like was good enough!), he said, “Yes, you are.”
He’d give me more guidance and encouragement each time.
My responsibilities in my job increased. The stakes got higher.
Every time I said, “I can’t,” he’d say, “Yes, you can.”
I didn’t believe in myself back then...but he did.
If it weren’t for him, I would not have been able to travel the world, work and hang out with top influencers, and start my own talent agency five years after working with him.
I wouldn’t be emailing you from a place of confidence and authority to tell you that YOU can do whatever you want too.
Until you get to the point that you FULLY believe in yourself, you need other people who believe in you and really see who you are.
Every successful person on the planet always says the same thing, from Aristotle, to Presidents of countries, to Bill Gates and Oprah: That they had someone in their life who really saw who they were and told them, “Yes, you can.”
And I’d like to be that person for you.
You see, since I am a professionally trained celebrity talent scout...my greatest gift is to see your potential.
It’s my proudest attribute.
I learned the hard way though, that it isn’t about just seeing how to monetize your gifts in the business world.
After spending the year in silence at the monastery, I realized you need someone to see you in relation to your deeper purpose in life too.
So with me, you get the best of both worlds: My professional opinion based off knowing the trajectories of hundreds of successful influencers and what you need to do to rise to that level + how to live a purposeful life at the same time.
In case you’re wondering: What do I look for when I see new talent or as business coach in the entrepreneurial world? Here are a few things:
Purpose: As the creator of Purposely Famous, no surprise, right! In my world, the foundation of everything you do should be something meaningful, aka executed with purpose.
An “I’ll never give up attitude:” I’ve got to know that you’ll never give up trying to reach your goals and that you’ll never settle for less.
Competency: I don’t need you to know it all, nor be the best at it. Ironically, being adequate now is enough if you are open to learning, growing, and being coachable as you go.
Belief in the impossible: Reaching your fullest potential, making millions of dollars, and impacting millions of people are not logical nor common achievements. But it’s possible. You must believe in yourself or trust my belief in you to achieve the impossible in the meantime.
As a foundation, that’s a start.
It’s not rocket science, right?
It’s not about being the most talented, smartest, or the most beautiful in the room.
The foundation of your success is that simple.
Trust me, I know because we all have blind spots.
So tell me this:
How long have you been undervaluing yourself...putting up with too much B.S. from your boss, co-workers, or the ungrateful clients? How much money have you missed out on because you’re underpaid and overworked? What opportunities have you walked away from because you “weren’t ready?”
When you have self worth and someone who believes in you to move past these obstacles (If you could overcome then on your own, you would have already right?), you can literally move mountains.
It is amazing to know someone’s got your back as you start reaching your goals one by one...from becoming your own boss to traveling around the world to reaching your financial goals to hanging out with influencers as if you’re one of them.
I’ve achieved these things, and it’s awesome.
This makes all the difference between success and failure.
If Mother Teresa had been on the hit TV show called Shark Tank…
I bet she would have been a “shark.”
And negotiated to get a gazillion dollars in funding to build schools and orphanages around the world.
Or if it had been Gandhi marching for world peace, Bill Gates fighting to eliminate malaria, Malala speaking out for education…
Anyone with a good purpose would fight for their causes relentlessly as if vying for the best spots on QVC.
I’m not diminishing the value of good work by comparing it to the latest online shopping gadget, but there is a valuable lesson about money to learn here.
THE BIGGER QUESTION IS: DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY TO IMPACT A LOT OF PEOPLE?
I get asked this all the time. And to be honest, it’s a fair question.
So first, let’s put this into perspective:
It costs a lot of money to impact a lot of people...whether it goes into your bank account or not.
A good way of thinking about this is that there will always be an exchange of money and you are the facilitator of it.
You can keep the cash or donate it.
The choice is yours.
If you’re like me, you’d help people for free. You do it because it feels good and you really have a good heart to help those in need.
But in today’s modern world…
And as much as I support completely altruistic endeavors…
Most people cannot afford to live off the land and give all of their money to other people.
Just being honest.
The struggle is real…
Bills need to be paid. Mortgage payments don’t grow on trees. College tuition is not getting cheaper.
So unless you’re a priest (or most religious leaders where the institution pays your bills), a trust fund baby, or the (VERY SMALL) minority who naturally earns a ton of money or gets donations easily…
And acknowledging that in today’s world, people tend to value what they pay for (um, I think you’d take much better care of a Ferrari versus an old beat up Volkswagen)...
Then give yourself permission to earn enough money to reach all of your dreams and still give back to society. Do both.
THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE MONEY.
The solution is to focus on building your authority instead.
Let’s recognize the fact that 1% of the population has 99% of the entire world’s wealth, so every time you say “I don’t care about money!” or “I’m gonna do this for free!...”
...You just helped that wealthy 1% of the population put more money into their pockets instead of having that go into yours or those who really need it.
This is why I always encourage my clients to start out by charging premium prices for their services.
If one coach can get paid $10,000 per client, why can’t you?
Aren’t you as good as they are?
Isn’t your wisdom just as valuable as theirs?
I love our camaraderie in the Purposely Famous Academy...recently in one of our group calls, one client shared his vast experience in helping clients write their books.
He has raving reviews. He’s an expert. We all saw it.
He was only charging clients $200 for his services.
Everyone on the call piped in as they saw how much he’s been undervaluing himself and told him, “You need to charge $25,000 per client from now on!”
So he is.
And guess what: Those high-paying clients will be way more committed and get better results. Because no one wants to throw away $25,000.
ON THE FLIP SIDE, IF YOU’RE COMMITTED TO PHILANTHROPIC CAUSES:
First, I applaud you.
We live in an expensive world and it’s noble to dedicate your time to spread goodwill on the planet.
But you’re still going to need to understand what it takes to get donations from the business world and hard-working people in the office, so your task to get money is not very different.
But you cannot escape the money game.
And some of the highest paid Thought Leaders that I’ve worked with have been philanthropists, educators, and visionaries.
They got paid WAY more than the executives and tech experts.
So you don’t have to settle for less or a lower paycheck, even in philanthropy.
WHETHER YOU’RE EARNING MONEY FOR YOURSELF OR IN PHILANTHROPY:
My point is to build your authority and name as a leader and the money will come to you either way. If you missed how to build your authority by borrowing it from other people, click here.
Altruistic leaders don’t join the spotlight for themselves. But they didn’t refuse it either.
It’s not about your ego (you should always be modest), but owning the value you bring to the world builds trust and credibility with those who don’t know you.
So whatever you decide...YES, it takes a lot of money to impact a lot of people. It always will.
Show your authority and learn the ins and outs about what it takes to play with the “big boys” in the money world and the whole world will be a better place for it.
A Hero’s Journey is not only the formula for great Hollywood movies. It’s something that each of us possesses, and it’s often the KEY to establishing and determining your authority as a thought leader.
Think every major Hollywood movie where the main character struggles and ends up being the hero in the end: Luke Skywalker. Wonder Woman. Harry Potter. Frodo Bagans.
These are fictional characters but YOU have also been through many trials in your life and succeeded. You TOO are a hero.
Here is a great article that shows you how to draft your own hero’s story based on the 12 stages of Joseph Campbell’s theory.
But since everyone has a great hero’s story, how do you make yours stand out and grab attention so people think, “I want to know more about you! I admire you! I want to buy from you! I’m going to click on every social media post you make, yes...you’re that awesome!”
I have some simple answer for this:
YOU NEED TO BE MORE DRAMATIC.
Yep...MORE DRAMA PLEASE!
Forget when your mom, friends, or other coaches tell you to tone it down.
I’m telling you to TONE IT UP.
I’ll use myself as an example to show how this works: I could tell everyone that I was born in South Korea, then I moved to Idaho and everything turned out happily ever after, and all this stuff in the middle happened.
But here’s what I often say: I was born in South Korea, I was dropped off at an orphanage the day after I was born and my birth family told everybody that I died.
That took five seconds to write, and it’s an attention grabber. And it’s true. Always be truthful.
But I CHOSE to highlight one point of my story so people want to know more.
See how that works?
What DRAMATIC points in your hero’s journey can you emphasize that make you stand out too?
Just like a Hollywood movie, if you’re not punchy and strategic enough to keep people’s attention, you’re going to get lost in the crowd.
So EMPHASIZE YOUR DRAMA.
Make yours LOUDER.
Use it as an “in” to prove your authority and resilience.
Have fun with it. Be proud of where you come from, your faults, mistakes, and drama...that is root of your gold 🙂
DON'T base decisions on your strengths, do this instead...
We’re always taught to identify our strengths, and to hone them. I know I’ve been told hundreds of times to focus on what I am good at, and ignore the rest.
And when you go to launch your own businesses, you’re often told the same thing. In fact, you’re even taught to to “outsource” your weakest points to others.
But this is NOT correct and you’ll keep you falling short from reaching your goals for a LONG TIME if you do this.
On a surface level, this makes a lot of sense. It’s the “safe route,” shall we say. By focusing on what we know that we are good at, it might seem like you’re lowering the risk of failure.
But when you only focus on your strengths, you’re actually limiting yourself. You’ll end up always being the same.
Case in point that proves this: I remember the exact moment that I decided to stop expressing myself. To suppress my voice. To never speak out again.
It was the 3rd grade.
The teacher called on me to answer a question.
She couldn’t hear me.
All of my classmates stared at me.
My face turned red.
I yelled out the answer again.
The teacher still couldn’t hear me.
There were more stares...50 eyeballs in the room all pointed at me.
I wanted to sink into my chair.
“Why couldn’t they hear me?” I thought. I spoke out in my loudest voice.
“I guess my voice isn’t loud enough. Not good enough. Not valuable enough.”
So I stopped speaking out.
I stopped standing out.
I stopped answering questions.
I made a decision that my strength was not to speak out...ever again.
It worked...but that also meant I never developed my ability to speak out and be heard...and to be valued.
But this is not a pity party.
The fact that I’m writing to you and have made a special video about this for you about this is a REALLY big deal. It’s never too late to develop your hidden strengths.
Because I know you have great wisdom to share with the world too.
Maybe for you, it’s something else.
What have you suppressed because a teacher, classmate, parent, sibling, TV show, movie or advertisement gave you the impression that you can’t do?
Perhaps your soul was calling out for something vastly different...but you didn’t know how to stand up for your gut at the time. It’s ok. It’s not too late.
What if the whole point of life is to not just wake up and “magically” have a strength but instead you need trials, errors, rejections, and mistakes to push you beyond your comfort zone to fully develop your most valuable INNER magic?
Another case in points: I’ve taken a ton of personality tests over the years, and hated the results.
Sure, it’s great to be “accountable” and “responsible” as the results told me I was...but that was because I WAS PLAYING IT WAY TOO SAFE.
But here’s something that they typically don’t take into consideration:
Certain events and things shape our character and decisions but are not always reflective of who you are in terms of your essence, or our purpose.
So how about this instead:
Choose WHO YOU WANT TO BECOME...and spend your time, energy, and focus on BECOMING THAT PERSON.
Are you a visionary? Thought Leader? Creator? Innovator? Motivator? Adventurous?
Base your life around who you want to be and you can never go wrong.
In fact, that is exactly how to make the RIGHT opportunities and people come to you...because others secretly aspire to be those same bold things too.
I want you to TAKE BACK YOUR POWER AND make that decision for yourself.
I want YOU to find that freedom as well.

Over the years, it’s become very clear to me that too many Thought Leaders (even if they don’t consider themselves that YET) are giving away their advice for free.
A lot of Thought Leaders are empathetic and compassionate people who really have a good head on their shoulders.
And this is not something that goes unnoticed by others!
Now, I’m not talking about being a shoulder for your best friend to lean on, or giving advice to someone close to you, or in your family.
I’m talking about the people you are already working with, possibly even your own boss, and acquaintances you may have.
The issue is that when a Thought Leader spends his or her time giving advice to others for free, it really cuts down on the time that they could be working to consciously build their own business. It can leave them drained.
I know, because it’s happened to me.
But what if you knew that you could get paid what your transformational advice is actually worth? If someone can really benefit from your advice and take it into practice, making massive strides in their life because of what YOU told them to do, or what you pointed out to them - isn’t that worth a paycheck for you?
It definitely is!
And there are thousands of people - maybe even millions - out there who make a living doing just that.
If your ideas are good enough for people to seek them out, then they’re good enough to get you paid. Whether that’s hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars: That’s up to you.
I know how frustrating it can be. I was giving away advice for free for years. I was making everyone around me into millionaires while I was struggling to pay my bills.
I was going in and helping people negotiate their deals and I was doing it for the passion of it. Because I enjoyed working for these people.
Meanwhile they were making literally millions of dollars from contracts that I helped them nail, but I couldn’t even fly home to see my family if someone got sick. I realized that something needed to change.
Pretty much, people aren’t really used to getting paid for their wisdom, but think about it. There are certain people out there for whom you can change their lives with your advice.
I’m sure you know people right now whom you could greatly benefit with your life experience and vision. But if you give them the goods for free every time, your wisdom and foresight almost become a burden because it’s your valuable time, and you’re giving them very specific advice.
You’ll eventually start to feel you want to get paid, but you don’t know how to make it happen. The problem is that if you don’t learn how to get paid for this, you’re going to be broke, while you see your friends, colleagues, acquaintances - all of the people you’ve been advising behind the scenes - are getting paid more and more. They are getting results. And you aren’t.
Let’s be clear on one thing: You are worth getting paid for transforming someone's life for the better. You just have to learn how to ask for it properly.
Years ago, I worked at a nightclub in South Korea. But it wasn’t just any nightclub. In fact it was one of the very first clubs in Korea that was getting international DJs.
The venue’s sound system alone cost $1 million. The crazy thing was, although I was doing most of the booking and was instrumental in the new found fame of this venue and its managers, I hadn’t seen a dime.
Finally, after months of seeing the big whigs of the bar get paid (I couldn’t help but notice they were driving new cars, wearing fancy clothes and using new technology), I went in and demanded my pay.
But not only did I demand my own pay, I demanded the pay of all my other coworkers who were still broke. This situation taught me something: How to stand up for myself.
I also learned to value my effort and know-how, and what I can offer to a business. Now I know how to take this direct attitude and make it work for Thought Leaders, coaches and visionaries.
The solution to this dilemma is what I call the “cup of coffee rule.” It’s really simple.
Give enough free advice to someone as long as it takes to drink one cup of coffee with them. At the end of your meeting, tell them you have a program or service that helps people like them.
Tell them, “Hey, if you want more, then let’s go into the next phase of the program.” Offer up your program, and the price for it. Don’t hesitate.
Truly, there’s just not a lot of people that realize the value of what they are giving away for free. It’s so worth getting paid for it.
Think about it, most people don’t hesitate to pay for a course that would enhance their career prospects. Nor do they hesitate to pay a therapist what he or she asks per hour, because they know that with enough dedication to the process, they will see results.
But something tells me that your advice has an even easier and quicker monetary and mental turnaround. I know this because I know it comes from the highest place.
Anything that involves you helping someone reach their life goals is worth getting paid for. Don’t forget that.

Oh I am a combination, I identify with a couple of these.
I would say I am a #2, 5, and 6. It's a long story but I want to share one delicious story, so lets go with #2 and #5.
I went to a very expensive art school in downtown Chicago, unfortunately this school employed some shady tactics such as charging outrageous money saying things like "pay this or you can't continue" even though the student, like me, was already paid up. Meanwhile I was already extremely poor, like so poor I spent most of my childhood in a house that had water that leaked from the roof, a driveway made of gravel rocks, and we couldn't even afford a land line phone. I was so poor in college that I barely could feed myself. One day I ran into the lady who recruited me at the school and she said she was so shocked how far I came. She said she never expected me to make it in the big city even a week that I was so country and my parents seemed so naive.
I was so angry that I said "...you know what. To hell with these guys. Someday I am going to have my own animation company. I want it to be in a high rise building across the street from the school so someday I can look down at the school and say 'I beat you, I win.'"
So you know what I did? I'm in Portland but I was looking where to put a virtual office so my business could have an official business address. Virtual offices are way cheaper than having an actual receptionist and office and you can literally have it anywhere in the world. So--- I picked a virtual office literally across the street from my old college. When I visit Chicago I literally get to look down at my old college and say "I win." I haven't even made a single dollar yet and already I feel like I'm winning.
great information, glad I came across you!! i'm definitely a mixture of 4, 6,8.
it is important to have great imagination.
2,3,5,6,7,8,9,12😏🙄 omgeeee but you already know my story😎😚
I definitely want to be a Visionary artist. 🙂 thank you for your work it’s super inspirational!
OK, so I know you’re reading a post about how you don’t need social media … on social media.
But hear me out.
Every guru, agency and coach out there is saying that you need to be on it, but there’s a caveat that you should know about.
Let me be clear, social media is very powerful. There’s a time and a place for it. And that timing and placement is the key to making or breaking your business (and your sanity!).
However, going full throttle into social media is rarely the best use of resources in the infancy (or even adolescence) of your business.
So without further ado, these are three reasons why you don’t need social media:
1. If you’re just starting out in your businesses, you don’t need it!
It’s better to make direct contact and deeper connections with people rather than posting and sharing little tidbits of information.
The problem is that many entrepreneurs who are just starting out tend to look toward more established personalities and brands, mostly in effort to understand how that person got to where they are.
But what beginners don’t realize is that no matter how successful someone may seem, they built their following a long time ago, and have been working on building their foundation for years. If you haven’t built the foundation, you can’t expect people to massively start following you if you do start posting on social media.
Sure, it happens. But it’s not the norm. If you start spreading your word all over social media, but you don’t have a following yet, the result is that a lot of your content will not be noticed. It’s discouraging, and can also mean a waste of your precious time and ideas.
Similarly, if you want to focus on small group of high paying clients, you don’t need social media because the personal connection is way more important. It’s about finding people that are committed to you who will make it possible later on to gain a bigger following.
When you have a small committed tribe at the beginning, you’re sharing info and getting feedback so much that eventually you are naturally you’re going to start to understand how to help people and test your ideas with them so if you do that enough with a small group of people you naturally progress to a bigger group and bigger group.
2. You’re in the “garage phase.”
Take Steve Jobs, for example. He was selling computers out of his garage long before he was heading a billion-dollar company.
A lot of people out there are in the garage stage, and that’s fine! The point is that we all start out there. But while they're seeing everyone else already in the big stores and reaching millions, the tendency is to think those people didn’t go through the garage phase. But everybody did.
You must be patient as you build a strong foundation. And that’s key - that the foundation is strong - before you go sharing it across the world.
3. If you choose to charge high prices to a small number of people or if you're connected to high-level people or business deals that have a wide reach:
I know a lot of influencers who make tons of money but aren't active on social media at all. Most of the behind the scenes Hollywood crowd does this - the celebrity managers, agents, publicists, and anyone developing the careers of most high profile people. Some of them are the most powerful people on the planet.
Or, you can charge a high fee for your services to a small Tribe and make good money, like a lot of high-end coaches do. If you're not interested in making a big social difference or being a thought leader, you don't need social media either.
If you're just starting out in business, I encourage you to charge high prices to a small number of people only because you can reach your income goals faster and expand to help more people for lower prices later.
And if you're authentic with a good message...it's awesome if you can take the stage to reach more people because if you've already proven yourself to a few, there are many more people out there that could benefit too.
Now, because we always have a yin to our yang.
Let me tell you about the flip side:
The biggest reason why you SHOULD use social media.
When you do build a big social media following, you do impact a lot of lives and as far as money, you can get sponsors and investors.
There is no shortage of money in the world. Trust me. It’s just not being distributed fairly.
Part of this is because not enough authentic people are out there showing up and staking their claim. Demanding their piece of the pie.
But if you already build a strong social media following, the media outlets, A-listers and influencers come to you because they benefit from your network as well. If you have a good message, it’s the important to share that message.
So.. If you do have something of value to share with the world, I do encourage you to use social media, because it simply is a tool that can help you make more IMPACT and change a lot of lives.
It can be a fast track to social transformation.

I absolutely believe this. Social media I feel props up what already exists in the real world. People have to ALREADY seek you and know you for social media to be effective. Using social media to promote is like going to a party and screaming “HEY EVERYONE I HAVE A BUSINESS PLEASE LIKE ME”. All it does it drive people away. Social media is a digital networking solution and people have to want you already. Otherwise you never know what you are getting yourself into. I swear to God the absolute worst people I have ever met in my life have been people I have networked with via the internet first because anyone can pretend to be anyone. Very few people on the internet are authentic and real— there’s always some catch or something that does not align. Creating real world connections are deeper and realer and you can verify what and who you are really dealing with.
Awesome advice Karin! Love this!
Love this Karin Roest 🙂 Thank you! My question is how to help the people who either do not know how to network in person or the best strategy for someone who travels rather than someone who lives in a set community to network within...any thoughts?
Love this Karin Roest 👌 100% true. I started out my business at a networking event here in nyc
If there's one thing that will save you from learning the hard way in my life, to stop feeling undervalued and own your awesomeness, it is that...
You should make time for those who make time for you...
To spend your energy and effort with those who do the same for you in return...
To share your light with everyone, but know that not everyone will be ready to receive it.
Focus on those who see your awesomeness so that your radiance spreads faster and brighter beyond those with blindspots who cannot see your worth.
The truth is: You'll often see someone else's light first, their value, and awesomeness...and it'll feed your soul. You'll want to be with them, naturally.
But if they cannot return the favor to see your value, light, and awesomeness...if they don't give you the time of day, if they have other priorities that are more important than you ("I'm too busy, I have too much work, I'll have time for you sometime, one day in the future")...
You are doing a disservice to your greatness and you'll end up undervaluing yourself.
The best thing you can do in this kind of situation is to MOVE ON...
Don't take it personally. It's not their fault or yours.
Instead, the best version of yourself, full of love and limitless possibilities, as you were born to be.
The right people will come around and ALWAYS make time for you...because your energy is pure and authentically contagious. Be a shining example of the type of person you want to attract the attention of. Love everyone, but be selective on who to spend your time with...make sure they meet YOUR standard, not the other way around. ... See MoreSee Less
I had the honor to be interviewed by @Jon Vroman, Co-Founder of the Front Row Foundation, about my mission to redefine fame.
We talked about many things, like…
• What I learned about the power of the mind after spending a year in silence at a Buddhist monastery. [8:00] • How your meaning in life is directly connected to your core values. [11:21] • Key questions to ask yourself in order to discover your own true purpose. [21:00] • Secret strategies that celebrities and A-listers use to gain recognition and how you can apply these same steps to optimize your own impact on the world.

Karin Roest has led and incredibly fascinating life. Courageously confronting the unknown, from sneaking in and out of war zones to rebuild African communities, to unraveling the mysterious deaths of her birth parents and biological sisters, to meditating for one year in silence.
Most people don’t believe they’re worth $15,000 for an hour-long phone call.
The truth is that I didn’t either. But I had someone else tell me that I was.
He was a mentor, and when the opportunity arose to charge that much for a phone call, I froze. Maybe I should just talk to them first, I thought.
But my mentor was firm. He told me there was no getting on that call until they paid me and sent me a deposit. I listened to him. I was terrified, but I did it.
And let me tell you, it was so necessary to have someone that believed in me.
Someone to act kind of as the gatekeeper for my first chance at charging what I was really worth.
And when the client paid it, I came to believe that it was in fact real. That I really was worth that much. Talk about a confidence booster! I’ve been fortunate. In my entire career, I’ve always had people like that in my corner. And that is how I got so far so fast. Because I surrounded myself with people who believed in me.
Statements from trusted mentors like “You can organize that press conference” and “You can negotiate that multi-million dollar contract” helped me to believe in myself.
They told me the steps and basic structure to get to where I needed to go, and to achieve the things I needed to achieve, and then set me out on my own. To sink or to float.
And while I was nervous and definitely didn’t do things perfectly at first, soon I figured it out and my confidence only grew.
So what does this mean for you? Let me share with you the steps to earning $15,000 (or more!) for a one-hour phone call:
First, you need a mentor. Someone who can support you and will encourage you to get out there. Someone that knows what you’re worth and sees the potential in you.
Most of us don’t feel like we’re worth so much money – so at the beginning somebody else has to tell you.
Having a mentor helps build confidence before and after your first pay.
People have trusted in me. Believed in me. People helped me with the steps.
They’ve pushed me to just go for it and told me I was worth it, that it doesn’t need to be perfect. I strongly advise that you invest in a mentor, it will be the best investment of your life.
Having your own gatekeeper is a necessity in this world, or else you’ll never see past your blind spots and always be left behind.
Do your research. You need to understand your tribe. Your clients. So put on your detective hat and figure out what it is that they do, need, want.
What have they paid others in the past? What worked for them and what hasn’t?
You need to try to answer all their questions before they ask them. When you’ve done your research, you go into the meeting as an authority figure. An expert.
And that is what you’re there to do. Help them.
First, you must educate yourself and prepare yourself so that you know them better than they know themselves, if possible.
Use the “Problems, Dreams, Solution” framework.
Realize that during a sales call or a sales conversation, you take people through an emotional journey.
This is where you make sure that they know that YOU understand them: and that you know what their problems are and their dreams.
There are psychological techniques that will help you during a conversation...
Then you provide them with the solution.
And this is an amazing thing because in this moment, you are giving them exactly what they need.
Then, when it comes time to close, you must be firm on it and not back down.
You have to make sure they know you understand them and get what they’re going through.
You are the person who can help them.
Make sure you both know it.
youtu.be/ksItH_kRVpcMost people don’t believe they’re worth $15,000 for an hour-long phone call...The truth is that I didn’t either. Luckily, I had some people show me the way, ... ... See MoreSee Less
You see... I know I am an expert in certain areas. But I definitely also know that I am NOT an expert in other areas.
So I don’t want to pretend that I know it all. And I don’t want you to feel like you have to know it all either.
There is a lot of pressure to look ‘perfect’ all the time: On social media, television, or on your websites. If you look at other people, your colleagues, people you admire, or your competition, it often seems like everyone else ‘has it all together’...
While you, well, you are flawed in ALL kinds of ways…
It is tiresome to put on a facade of perfection and control, and if you ask me...EXHAUSTING.
When I was little, I used to meticulously put on my makeup and best Sunday clothes to fit in with my peers at church. I felt so left out, I thought people would like me better if I looked better.
Obviously, that never worked.
As an adult, I’ve recognized my tendency to do the details of my job that made everything look nice but avoided doing the main work that helped get results.
This, when you own your own company, equals the mastery of looking good on the outside but having nothing to show on the inside.
Especially, in your empty bank account.
In other words, facades don’t work.
I’ve worked with so many big names, in business and entertainment - and saw them struggle so hard to maintain this ‘image’ of perfection… I also saw how it worked against them behind the scenes..
That’s why I don’t believe in perfection anymore.
People want a leader who is a real person - with flaws - who can still guide them in their area of expertise but not perfect in their entire life.
So the time has come to come clean, be courageous and just be honest about being a FLAWED HUMAN BEING - just like the rest of us!
I will happily share with you that…
Sometimes I cannot seem to find ANYTHING back in my house, that I can feel completely overwhelmed and disorganized, and that sometimes I feel like a total dork or 4 year old even in front of my own team! (And yes, I tell them this and we have a hearty laugh TOGETHER about it)
...If I had recorded all the mistakes, stressful or chaotic moments I went through while changing my business model and starting a new project - believe me, I would have HOURS and hours of blooper material on film (Wait for it...one day my blooper reel will be my biggest thing, I just know it, lol)
Some to laugh about, and some to cry!
I am not afraid to admit that running my business has NOT been easy - and certainly not perfect.
But that’s ok.
I still confidently know that I can CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE. FOR THE BETTER. 🙂
People like Brene Brown, author of ‘The Power of Vulnerability’, and Susan Cain, who spoke about the Power of Introverts - have proved that showing your flaws can be the most POWERFUL thing you can do.
So please know that you can kick ass in your area of expertise and be a professional while ALSO showing your dorky, nerdy, not perfect sides…
It’s your responsibility to pick and choose what you show to the world… And be brave enough to showcase it with confidence and pride.
I see A LOT of people struggle with the so called imposter syndrome.
Many people can’t seem to get things done because they feel like they are not good enough, not knowledgeable enough, or not ‘there’ YET.
Even some of my most successful clients, people working in the top ranges of their industries have confessed to me: ‘I don’t know Karin, I feel like I’m not ready, I feel like I have to know more, be more, learn more before I can make this next step, before I get on that stage, before I negotiate this deal…’
The imposter syndrome often stems from you doubting your own authority.
And you know what? Actually, you may be quite right! You don’t know it all yet and you have do have more to learn… but for right now, YOU KNOW ENOUGH.
And here’s a super cool trick that reinforces this fact: You can borrow authority from other people or society in a way that reinforces your authority
Being a powerhouse to others doesn’t always have to be about just you!
The thing is, people want access to quality knowledge and information – and sometimes all you have to do is be the DELIVERER of this great information...whew!
So let me give you some ways to increase YOUR authority NOW, without needing to ‘first read those extra 10 more books’, ‘finish those extra 5 courses’, ‘waiting a couple months or even years’ before you’re confident enough about your own authority…
Here are 8 ways to borrow Authority that makes you more credible without having credibility yourself:
1. Statistics & Facts: Find the facts and stats that are relevant and interesting to your audience and share it with your audience. There is a deluge of readily available stats and facts out in cyberspace already, so just being the one that directs them to good content makes them view you as a leader.
2. Testimonials/Social proof: Someone else’s good review of you and your services goes a long way. If you have a former client, someone you worked with in the past, a colleague, a mentor, someone who has seen your skills and knows about your abilities– let them build your authority by doing the “humble brag” for you in a testimonial!
3. You can also flip the script and speak out about how a mentor or someone else helped you! This will make them want to promote you because you make them look great and it's normal to add your own weblink back to your products and services.
4. Resolve any objections your clients or donors have BEFORE they mention them and they’ll think you’re a genius because you're practically reading their mind.
5. State the old way of doing things then present the NEW secret way that you know about… People don’t want to be left out so doing this will make them think you are way ahead of them by being in the know!
6. Point out your Tribe’s biggest problems and fears, then drill in the consequences if they don’t change. I know it sounds mean, but you’re merely pointing out the reality of what they’re avoiding. Bring them back to the light by showing that you have the solution to their problems, and they’ll thank you now instead of living in regret years later for not reaching their dreams.
7. Be a ‘Myth buster’ and set the record straight about false or outdated myths and replace them with the updated truth that they need to know now.
8. Shock or surprise people – for example you can tell people “You may think that you need…. To become successful – but actually: …. Is WAY more important!" It doesn’t have to be an elaborate finding either, it might be as simple as: “People think stretching is the most important part of yoga, but actually it’s all about your breathing.”
All the things that I just mentioned build YOUR authority but do not require you to wait until you are ‘more ready’, or until you have more knowledge or perfected your skills.
They just require you to deliver information that is at your fingertips already. Being the deliverer of great information can equally be MORE than enough for people to trust you and see you as a powerhouse.
Total authority depends on many things - not only on you - so stop procrastinating - stop being insecure - you don’t have to know it all to be a leader to people or to be on that stage!
*Whew* - Big sigh of relief
(I’m with ya’ on that!)

Are you a coach, author, speaker, entrepreneur, artist or someone who wants to do something more PURPOSEFUL with your life?
Are you ready to earn 6-7 FIGURES in a MEANINGFUL way?
Then YES, you are ready to become PURPOSELY FAMOUS!
Let me share with you what I learned from working “behind the scenes” for 15 years as a celebrity talent scout & producer for the world’s most rich and influential people.
I had the chance to work with Grammy Award-winning musicians, Nobel Peace Prize winners highly paid TED speakers, New York Times Best Selling authors, and award-winning journalists & philanthropists.
And I witnessed first hand the proven strategies and techniques they use to make MONEY while making a big IMPACT.
But not only that… After years of traveling, connecting with people from all around the world and ultimately spending a year in silence in a monastery...
I realized that the world needs more authentic movers & shakers.. And that ordinary people who can add value to the world need a BIGGER stage.
I realized that money and influence are not the same without PURPOSE and having an impact feels SO much better if what you are doing is truly linked to your personal life story, your skills, experiences, and dreams in a meaningful way.
That’s why I want to give people a customized blueprint to scale their business so they earn 6-7 figures and beyond, and create the most powerful positioning in the 21st century based on their personal PURPOSE. Building and growing a business this way will not only make you a Thought Leader to others, it will allow you to have enough free time to live your dream lifestyle.
This is not a "Get rich & famous quick scheme," but it will become a lot more attainable (and for the RIGHT reasons) after watching this.
This lady knows what she’s talking about. ❤️ So glad I clicked. She’s directly on my frequency.
Can’t see it from my iPhone???
Natasha Limberopoulou Natasha Limberopoulou Singer - here is this Amazing lady Karin that I was talking about. She has the group Purposely Famous Network plus she and her team are working with people in her paid options. Karin knows her stuff and I know how much you want to provide healing through your beautiful music! Consider joining us here <3
We need you to be FAMOUS. There. I said it. But please, hear me out. Don’t let the word “fame” intimidate you!
We need people who: · Want to use everything they’ve got in them to make a make a big impact · Get more visibility and build their influence to spread more goodwill · Inspire others with their story and help others stop struggling as much as they have...
Becoming Purposely Famous is the fastest and most effective way to influence the most people for a good reason (and next to that... it’s a lot of fun, too!).
We all know that job security is not what it used to be and that we can’t rely on governments, social security, or even minimum wage to provide enough security for our futures anymore.
And there are too many mentors, do-it-yourself resources and tools out there to see someone else inspire others and make millions while you’re staying chained to your desk.
And if you follow and implement the principles and systems that I share with you.
Then you know what? It's not just me who's got your back.
The World Wants You To Become Purposely Famous
All we have to do is look at some real world examples to see that the world favors those who spread goodwill, and that it rewards them generously for it. For instance…
Oprah. Today we know her as a billionaire, but she started out as a traumatically abused girl growing up in a racist environment. Before she became the Oprah Winfrey that we all know and love, people told her to change her name, get plastic surgery, and accept a salary that was way less than her peers. She refused and she refused again and again. When she strategically chose a path and the right team of people to help her reach her goals, her drive and her message made her a global phenomenon and an inspiration to millions.
Steve Jobs. It's no secret Steve Jobs was quite grumpy for most of his life. His birth parents abandoned him and he was bullied in school. He didn't start off knowing how to run a business but sold his first computer out of his garage anyway. (Hello, leap of faith! You’ll need that, too.) He got fired from his own company, then rehired. He caught an incurable cancer. Slowly over time, he became more humble and eventually opened up to sharing his wisdom and to caring about others. His legacy is for THIS transformation, not just for the computers that he created.
Bill Gates. It’s cool to be a nerd today, but it wasn’t back when Bill Gates was a child. He snuck out of his house in high school to go work on computers down the street because he didn’t have one at home. Microsoft grew enough to make him the richest man in the world. But despite the billions he earned, he said he wants to be remembered for his humanitarian outreach. For the impact he directly has on the lives of others. He has balance in his life and the most significant impacts he makes.
Can you imagine what the world would be like without movers and shakers like them?
Now they may be ahead of you, some more than others, but they all started somewhere... It is a process and lifelong journey with calculated steps to leverage the best of who you are and what you do into a profitable business.
And you know what else? The sincerity of a person's heart does not rely on external circumstances.
So you may be wealthy, have a big house and fancy cars OR have very few possessions…The things that you own materialistically do not determine the potential of your authenticity.
(Definitely one of the lessons I learned when I gave up everything that I owned to join a monastery and stayed there for an entire year in silence..).
I mean, don't forget where you came from but also don’t use a lack of money, influence, or connections as an excuse to do nothing, because..
Right now, the world needs more people with good hearts to stand out.
There are tangible tools that I’d like to share with you and once put into place, each will help you advance your business. I call them the 5 steps that you need to start your own business and sell your own wisdom and expertise for long-term profits and success.
Seems pretty straightforward, right? It is.
But let me first start with a little story, imagine this…
Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, and Wonder Woman walk into a bar…
They introduce themselves, as if they’re long time friends, and start telling each other their stories with all of the twists and surprises …
What do you think they’d say if they had each had a clear, structured path before they had set out on their respective life journeys? If they had known their life purpose from the beginning of the story? If they had a strategy, knew who the good and bad guys were in advance, and where the rocky terrain and challenges were before they got there?
These are warlocks and Marvel comic characters but in the real world…
You are the superhero of your own story.
The difference between you and them though, is that you don’t get extra lives if your entrepreneurial journey is a bust.
You have mouths to feed. No one hands you money or superpowers, and the director at the end of a movie doesn’t guarantee a happily ever after.
In real life there is just too much at risk to navigate your journey without a roadmap to help you increase your success and minimize your problems. That is why I want YOU to have a clear, structured path to follow so you know where to go, what to do next, and what to avoid.
The 5 steps to start your business will help you with this. But before we’ll get into them, you have to know what kind of business to start, right?
Even though there are many different kinds of businesses out there, I believe that Thought Leadership is a business that makes a lasting impact like no other:
Because it provides Life Transformation
This means taking your knowledge, expertise, and skills, and, most importantly, your vision, and packaging them into products and services that people can use to enrich their lives.
I’ve worked with hundreds of amazing people who do exactly this and they all agree that this is the most personally rewarding and lucrative kind of business you can be in.
Because if you can transform lives for the better and make it last...You're not just selling…that is only a byproduct. More important than that, is that you’re leaving a LEGACY. .
And these 5 steps will help you build your business around it:
· Get clear on your messaging: For You (your original thoughts), your Tribe (small group of people who want results fast), and the Masses (large group of people who want transformation) - You need these 3 different parts, no less! · Package your wisdom: Create profitable products and services (books, speeches, online courses, etc.) · Create your own authority: Use a proven, scientific system to establish credibility · Spread the word (Level 1): Build a core client base organically then automate your business to get a steady stream of clients (Sales funnels, webinars, etc.) · Spread the word: (Level 2): Exposure & Influence with the mainstream media, publicity, sponsors, projects with investors, and Hollywood
This is a broad overview of the steps. For some, this list will be enough to get you rolling. Others will want to learn in greater detail. This is one of the reasons why I created this free training series so you can understand all that it takes to get to the end goal, and then take practical bite-sized steps to make it happen.
Once you have the pieces of the puzzle and know how they fit together, it’s just a matter of building! And I am here to help you do that! I really hope you’re feeling more confident that you can get paid for your wisdom and that you are starting to see how it can become a reality.
I just watched this video and I am on step 1--finding my clear message. I'm a children's author. I know I write fantasy adventure stories with positive social/emotional messages in them to help children be their best selves. I don't know if that's enough or a clear message or not or maybe not a big enough over-arching message.
If you’ve been following along with what I’ve been sharing with you regularly here on Purposely Famous, you may already have some solid techniques to help you build your business.
In that case, you’re ready for insights on how to strategically attract the world's most influential people and make THEM come to YOU.
The goal of this strategy is to reach a breaking point where you become so popular and well known that the opportunities come to you automatically without trying.
But even before you reach that breaking point, while you’re attracting your initial followers, make sure that you are not chasing. Y
ou’ll need a strategy to create your breaking point, but still never, ever chase.
I am not telling you that you should sit back and do nothing and wait for it to happen...
That won’t work either.
Instead, I’m saying that it can ONLY happen if you are absolutely strategic. Only when you are, THEN Hollywood, the media, and A-Listers will come to you.
I know from my own experience of working with the most influential people in the world, that these are people that want to be in on the action and know the latest amazing person, too.
When I worked at a speakers bureau where we paid ordinary people doing extraordinary things 6-figures+ for one 40x minute speech, we were ALWAYS scouting for new people, just like you, to inspire audiences around the world.
And we looked in very specific places, too.
First of all though, keep in mind that you need to become someone that they want to be around, and become known for something specific. You may want to have several niches, and that’s fine, but choosing one thing first to focus on makes you memorable the fastest.
This is one of the most important strategies that I share with you!
Watch this video where I give you the exact outline and strategy on how to do this!
For way too long, I’ve seen industry experts stay as an industry expert… But since I believe that your true potential is global.
I’m about to let you in on one of the Biggest Obstacles to Achieving Success:
The idea that there exists such a thing as “The One Quick Fix”.
People tend to look for quick fixes or that one solution that will bring their business and goals together.
But I’ve gotta break to you:
There are no quick fixes and there will never be one single thing that magically makes everything fall into place.
You will always need many different solutions for your business … and often all at once.
Starting, running and sustaining a business is a complex undertaking. It requires a solid plan and multitasking skills. But even with those, there’s a big chance that at times, you’ll feel stressed, overwhelmed, and doubting yourself.
Those are the times that you need to remember:
YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK.
That means you can can HANDLE more than you think and don’t NEED quick fixes anymore. You will figure everything out along the way if you have the right guidance.
And never EVER let your self-doubt stop you from developing your business.
One of the top reasons I’ve seen the most intelligent and capable people stay stuck is that they think they should master everything before starting anything. They think “I’ve got to finish this ‘one thing’ or all this other stuff first before making my big plan!”
But trust me, I’ve learned from the most successful people in the world, that it’s not about finishing what you’re currently doing before you start something else, it’s about making the juggling of multiple responsibilities into your second nature.
I’ve heard a lot of intelligent entrepreneurs express how they can’t start moving forward in their business until all of the loose ends are tied up. Or for example, that they have to finish creating their passive income before they start the movement for the masses. One client told me “I can only focus on writing my book right now, and just can’t start anything else now.” · But don’t be fooled…these are all limitations and excuses!
Even if you don’t know the “how” yet, you must trust that you’ll learn how to masterfully run your business like an Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos would. Because contrary to what you may believe, they didn’t wake up knowing how to be incredibly successful either.
I mean, do you think that Richard Branson, a billionaire who controls 400+ companies, said to himself years ago "I’m going to wait until this ONE company is successful, then I'll open another?"
I think you know the answer to that.
Branson, Bezos and Musk, along with countless others, trusted that they would learn along the way everything they would need, and they have.
And you have the same potential and abilities as they do. The only thing they have that you don’t have is the task of managing million or billion-dollar enterprises. And that can be a lot more stressful than glamorous.
As your business takes off though, things will get more complex and you will have to start delegating. I’m going to be very honest with you here:
The path, tasks, and challenges will not get easier, but you can learn how to handle them better with more control, focus, and ease
Some of you are likely naturally good at focusing, control, or balance. I sure am not!
But I have learned from many others and found out that there’s loads of existing wisdom and tools that you can use.
When you follow the proven path outlined here: purposelyfamouspath.com/ the initial success that you have will help you get on a path to mastery sooner than later.
I’m here to support you and help you master the skills you will need! I’m here to tell you that you have something very important that will make anyone view you as a powerful influencer, right now, as you are.

From the outside it may look like some people just have it all: prestige, money, a perfect life, the perfect job and family…
But many people are struggling. They feel stuck. Trapped in a job that looks great on the outside but is unfulfilling on the inside and they are craving deeper meaning in their work and life.
But you know what? If you dare to create a meaningful career and life as a Thought Leader, YOU can be an inspiration to the people who seem to have it all but don’t!
Let me tell you something… when I decided to leave working in the celebrity world full-time, I thought that my colleagues would ridicule me…
But I found out that when I showed them a deeper and more meaningful side that works in tandem with business, they jumped on the spiritual bandwagon with me.
I've gone beyond the surface to have meaningful conversations with some of the most profound leaders in the world, from CEOs to billionaires to global thought leaders. People with way more public success and accolades than I had...
I once had a meeting with one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, I'll call him Jay. It was nearly impossible to get a meeting with him in the first place, as he's in charge of pretty much every Hollywood A-list pop star's career in the world.
I was trying to book one of his artists for a concert that I had to produce in Asia and I had several million dollars to offer, but still wasn't sure if that was going to be enough.
When I came into his office, I saw that John’s desk was piled full of artist contracts and paperwork: to the point you couldn't even see the desk itself!
John looked stressed out, so instead of starting with the normal “let’s get down to business” route, I decided to take a different approach to our conversation.
I started telling him about how I decided to transform my own business to help people be HAPPIER and more FULFILLED and I shared with him some of the ups and downs that I had in my own career and personal life. · I told him that I was from Idaho…Hello, potato land! I used to be embarrassed about that. But then he shared that he was from a small, no name town, too. · I told him about my adoption…and how my birth parents and three sisters passed away…but I finally figured out how to overcome the sadness. He told me about his struggles after his father died recently. · I told him that I spent the year in silence in a monastery, determined to find my purpose to live again…
And you know what happened?
This hard-nosed executive broke down, and then opened up. He told me about his struggles with his job and that he had so much stress that he had to have surgery because of the wear and tear on his body. And this is a guy who earns at least $1 million a year as his salary. But all the appearance of success and earning a lot of money alone is not enough to feel satisfied.
Despite of our different background and professional status, we realized that we now shared something important, we had the camaraderie of wanting a more meaningful life.
And because I had already chosen to leave and take full charge of my own happiness, it wasn't me begging to meet him anymore. I was a leader to him!
I call this legacy leadership. And trust me: the doors are open for YOU as well to expand and share what you know, even with people that have more power than you!
All you have to do, is to use something already within your reach. That is showcasing your heart along with business intellect and the courage to lead with PURPOSE.
Believe me, if you do this, YOU will have the advantage in the future, not them
When you walk into a room and deliver a message based on your wisdom, life experiences, and the lessons that have made you a better person, it can drastically change the course of a business, nation, or the entire world.
Ultimately, it is this kind of authenticity that makes you an equal with people more powerful than you.
What inspiring story or life experiences do YOU have that could inspire others?
It feels amazing to be able to spend time with loved ones and give something back, whether in the form of Christmas presents or joining them on a well-needed vacation.. I just got back from Hawaii and feel incredibly blessed 🙂

You see, there is no big, brilliant secret into successfully designing your own life. But there certainly are steps and techniques that can help you with it.
Luckily, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.. And with the right guidance, you could soon be living a more abundant life than you could ever imagine!
Here as a little pre-Christmas gift from me to you.. A guest post I wrote for Natalie Sisson, creator of the Suitcase Entrepreneur and share some important insights that will keep your business leveling up and fill your heart during this special time of the year.

Feeling incredibly grateful for having the freedom and time to spend a week on vacation with my family... in Hawaii! 🌴🌺
Talking about worthwhile investments...
I know many people are scared to invest in themselves but if you want other people to pay you high end prices, you have to be willing to invest in the same for yourself. Trust me, investing in yourself and your future is the BEST way to spend your money.
So... do a ‘humble brag’ and stop selling yourself short!
So speaking at the Magnetic Speaker event in Orlando was AWESOME, especially meeting so many people who are committed to make a difference in the world.

But once upon a time, I went from growing up raiding the free box at garage sales…to galavanting around the world with celebrities…and admittedly got so caught up in the glitz and glamour that the only way for me to find myself again was to isolate myself in a monastery for one year.
Today is a light work day instead as registration opens for the Purposely Famous Academy at MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. This is my life passion so when you do work that you love, it never feels like work. I've learned that after traveling the world for 18 years and when you're not with your family all the time...EVERY DAY is a holiday and an excuse to be grateful. Hope to see you in 2018...it will be EPIC! Please click on the link above if you'd like to know more 😘 . .
Discover how to land on thousands of stages in any market. Learn the 23 Day Marketing System, aimed at getting you booked and paid to speak quickly, easily and with consistency. The "get-on-stage strategy" is the exact strategy we use every day to land highly paid speaking engagements.
It's almost time...the PURPOSELY FAMOUS ACADEMY doors open at the start of Black Friday midnight this week Thursday!
[TODAY I ADDED A SPECIAL VIDEO, JUST FOR YOU!]
During the 8-week course that will start in January you’ll learn the most powerful strategies that turn your ideas into a profitable business … AND, if you’re up for it, we’ll help you create a customized path to go from unknown to A-List famous!
... Time is short and I know there are tons of programs out there to take (maybe you've taken a ton already!), but The Purposely Famous Academy is different than anything else out there because:
- You’ll get celebrity caliber guidance on how to build a brand, get high paying clients, media exposure, and learn how to network with Hollywood A-Listers
- You’ll have a systematic process to follow that shows you how to build a loyal tribe that you can parlay into a movement for the masses
- You’ll have behind the scenes secrets from people like Britney Spears, the Rolling Stones, Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuck, Brendan Bruchard that are not found nowhere else, which help you make better educated decisions to accelerate your own personal success
During these 8 weeks, you’ll have 24/7 access to all of the materials online in a private platform and there will be plenty of Q&A calls where I will answer ALL of your questions. The Purposely Famous Team and I will be there for you to make sure these 2 months will be an unforgettable transformative experience for you!
And you can move at your own pace because you’ll have LIFETIME ACCESS to the online course!
The first 10 people that sign up will get a FREE strategy session with my team and I (this extra personal time with me can make a HUGE difference in your progress. I don’t do much 1-on-1 coaching anymore, but this can put you ahead about 3-4 months).

Happy Meditation Monday! Family is the tie that binds. 🙏🏼 How do you overcome distractions in your life? (Even the cute ones) ✨ I did this meditation with my nieces and nephews a while ago but added the full story and ending to show more about how meditation REALLY goes when you meditate with kids.
It's fun. Sometimes peaceful. Always lots of laughter.
