working on your business

A confused mind always chooses "No." Always.


If you struggle to get people to say “yes” in your business, then this is for you.

And bonus, it’s super quick.

Are you often frustrated in your business that people don’t say “yes” more often?

  • Yes to joining your Facebook group.
  • Yes to joining your email list.
  • Yes to clicking on something in your email.
  • Yes to purchasing a product.
  • Yes to buying a service.

You put enormous time and effort into those things and the results are kind of ho-hum? I have a great tip for you today. This is something that I have learned and I’m continuing to refine it and learn it, but it has made a huge difference in my business.


Don’t make it confusing

Let’s start with the idea that a confused mind always says, “No.” This is not my idea. This is a marketing phrase. You will hear it out there, all over the place, but if someone comes to your website and they are confused, or they read a sales page or they read an email and they are confused, they will default to “no.” A confused mind always chooses “No.” Always.


Cut your words in half

You need your message to be super clear and the #1 way I know how to begin improving this is something that I would ask my design clients to do.

Back when I was doing web design, I would require my clients to submit copy to me. Copy means the words that would be on the page I was designing. They needed to tell me what words needed to go on that page so I could design where the words were and how they looked and what images we used and things like that. But they had to write those words.

So I would ask them to write out the words and then go back and cut it in half. Cut the number of words they had written in half. This forces your mind to become super clear about what is really important for the person on the other end, who is reading those words, to know.

In fact,  as long as they gave me permission, when I put those words on their website, I cut it in half again.

I want you to do this in your own business. The next time you write a blog post, the next time you write out a podcast episode outline, the next time you write a sales page, the next time you write an email – I want you to write it out, cut it in half, and cut it in half again.


Why are they saying ‘Yes’?

Again, I want you to get super clear about what it is you want the person on the other end to learn or to do. If you want them to say “yes” more often, you have to make it exceptionally clear what they are saying “yes” to because a confused mind always says “no.”

That is it today. Today was one of those quick tips that I believe is super impactful. Go apply it to your business. If you would like help cutting your words in half, if you would like to give me a paragraph and have me cut it in half for you, I would invite you to join the Ask Me Anything group where I answer your specific questions about your business. I would be happy to look at some of your copy and cut it in half for you and show you what this actually looks like so that you can start having a greater impact and see more yeses in your business.

I used to be embarrassed to send people to my webiste, but not anymore

This is the heading

Misty is gifted at breaking things down into bite-sized pieces. I am not tech savvy. I don’t know anything. Before I met Misty, I had a website that I wasn’t very proud of and I didn’t really want to send people there. I now have a website that makes me money, and it is something that I am super proud of.


When I found Misty,
I honestly just felt saved

This is the heading

I got there! I built a website! I actually COULD do it! Misty kept telling me that I'd learn how to [design my website pages] by myself. I really doubted that was ever going to happen for me. But I got there. I built a website, then a sales page, an and eCourse, and even a membership. She was right. I actually could do it.


I now feel confident in making changes, creating pages, and adding information to my website on my own.

This is the heading

Before I found Misty, I did not even know where to start. I started a WordPress website and tried to figure everything out on my own. It was taking forever! My website ended up being a jumbled mess and not cohesive at all. Now, my website looks amazing because of Misty. She is so knowledgeable about website design and tech and that has been a lifesaver for me!
