You've heard it all before:

 

"Make sure you're posting on social media channels!"

"Live video is where it's at!"

"You HAVE to blog!"

"Get out there and meet people! Networking is crucial!!"

 

And that all sounds great...in theory. But where do you start? How do you start? Is video truly important? How crucial is networking really?

Maybe you've already started, but instead of getting anywhere you just feel lost and confused. You see others making great strides but it seems like you're getting left behind.

Or maybe your once successful visibility efforts just aren't getting you the attention they used to thanks to new technology and an ever-changing industry.

It's time for a change.

It's time to take control.

To stand up for yourself and your business.

9 Cs to Becoming a Visibility Warrior

AN In-person and Online Visibility Strategy COURSE

 

Are YOU ready to become a Visibility Warrior? 

Dixie here! I cannot begin to tell you how fired up I am about sharing our Visibility Warrior course with you. The feeling of stepping into your visibility role and making a difference in your business and in your life is unbelievably powerful. Especially when you're like me and you never thought you'd never stop feeling like the 12-year-old version of yourself.

 12-year-old Dixie

12-year-old Dixie

It's taken me years to go from that shy, reserved, introverted awkward turtle (who really didn't understand people AT ALL) to someone who feels confident and strong and has real relationships throughout her community. It hasn't been easy - and I have made a million mistakes along the way - but I did it!

What I love most about our Visibility Warrior course is that YOU can learn from MY mistakes instead of doing it the hard way. Rachel and I have taken all of our training, education, experience, and bumps in the road and put together a comprehensive program that has the information you need to get REAL results.

It's more than just the tools, tips, and tricks we use - it's how we changed our mindset, the way we studied our businesses and our clients, and how we stay on track. (Just in case you were wondering, this is a course FOR introverts and awkward turtles BY introverts and awkward turtles.)

We've taken the time to make sure all of that info is in the right order to make your progress as smooth and effective as possible. And since we know that different people have different learning styles, our lessons have video, audio, and print versions along with worksheets you can write in. We've also added in some amazing extras to help keep you accountable and motivated.

I want you to know how incredible it feels to stand tall and strong and assured. To know that you are making a difference in your community. To take your business and yourself from INvisible to magnificently visible. To boldly take advantage of all the opportunities that visibility brings.

Content

We all know that content is queen, but with so many ways to be visible, it's easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to when and where you need to say and do what. This module covers what types of content work best, where to put that content, ideas for future content, and ways to keep it all straight.

Connect

Not only does all of your content need to be connected, but you also need to make sure you connect with your audience. In this module, we'll talk about ways you can connect on a person-to-person level in both your in-person and your online visibility.

 Dixie Willard, NCIDQ

Dixie Willard, NCIDQ

As an extremely introverted introvert who officially started her design firm AFTER moving to a new state (where the only person she knew was her husband), Dixie knows the challenges of networking and building relationships from scratch. Although she would much prefer to be a hermit in the woods, Dixie has established and grown her in-person connections as an active volunteer for her favorite service organizations, an ambassador for the chamber of commerce, and a member of several networking groups. She works one-on-one with other business owners to improve their in-person visibility and has been featured in podcasts, telesummits, and webinars.

Dixie's passion for learning can be seen from her early days studying mechanical engineering to graduating summa cum laude with a BFA in Interior Design in 2004. After earning her NCIDQ certification, Dixie returned to school to study business and marketing and joined Toastmasters to work on her speaking skills. These days, her thirst for knowledge is being applied to studying construction project management, social anthropology, and communication.

What began as a 30-day challenge soon expanded to a 50-day challenge and then a one-year challenge. With well over 400 live streams for her design business, Rachel is a master at live video. With an instinctive talent for creating eye-catching and engaging social media posts, Rachel is an invaluable resource when it comes to online visibility. Her skills, knowledge, and advice have been featured in podcasts, webinars, telesummits, and in her upcoming book.

Rachel is an award-winning designer and stylist with more than 13 years of experience. In addition to redesigning the homes, vacation homes, and investment homes of successful professionals in and around San Diego County, Mexico, and nationwide via her Virtual Online Design Services, her work as a photo stylist has been published in fashion and home décor catalogs. Having also owned her own boutique and worked as a private banker, Rachel has a wide range of valuable knowledge.

When two strong business women team up to encourage each other...
Then personally challenge themselves to push their own comfort levels in order to get past their own boundaries...
Then take up their challenge and their own experience to encourage, support and challenge other strong business people to break past their individual mindset hurdles to become #Visible
A warrior doesn't lack fear. A warrior channels that fear into action.
Dixie wears her war paint in her hair
Rachel wears her war paint wrapped in her hair
When these two thought and mindset champions become #Warriors for a cause...
Then somehow...recognize me
Only one word comes to mind...#Humbled

FAQs

What if I’m just not ready to be visible?

If you really need to get in front of new clients, you can't wait until you’re “ready” because you’ll never be ready. Too many other things will get in the way. We like to use the phrase, “Get ready to get ready”. Join the Visibility Warrior course now and we’ll help you get your head in the game.

I tried being visible and it didn’t work. How is this course going to change that?

Visibility is long-game business strategy. We like to say that you have to keep ‘feeding the beast’. When you do, you'll attract new clients, create relationships and collaborations, and build your community. More importantly, you will see your business grow in ways you couldn't have expected or imagined. Taking the first step is essential, but continuing on the journey is just as crucial.

Why do I need to be the face of my business?

You want visibility for your design firm - but you don’t want to be featured yourself? Here’s some tough love from your favorite Design+Style gals: Hiding behind your laptop just isn't going to cut it. You are both a brand and the face of your business and you need to step into that role by being visible both online and in your community. We know it’s hard and that's why we're here to help you!

Between my family and my business, where will I find the time to be visible?

With the right strategies in place, getting visible doesn't have to be time-consuming. Getting visible now can help attract visitors to your website and social media, build credibility, establish relationships in your community, and raise your profile both with prospective customers and industry brands – all of which generates leads, new projects, and can lead to collaborations. So if you won’t make time for activities that generate new projects/clients, you may need to rethink your priorities. You might be busy right now, but if you’re not generating a constant stream of leads, things might look different in a few months. Wouldn't you rather get things in place before that happens?

What if the course doesn't work for me?

We can't promise that signing up for this course will automatically guarantee you results. After all, YOU have to put in the time, hard work, and perseverance to get the visibility you want. The good news is that this course helps to lay the foundation for your success and we are here to support you! From the private Facebook community to the group Visibility Support Sessions to your private Visibility Advocate Session, we're here to guide, advise, and cheer you on.

Disclaimer: Keep in mind that your results may (and likely will) be different from others'. Why? Because it's all based on YOU - your initial starting place, how hard you work, and how determined you are. It depends on your own unique personality, abilities, and drive. We can't promise that signing up for this course will automatically guarantee you results. YOU have to put in the time, hard work, and perseverance to get the visibility you want. This course helps to lay the foundation for your success.
