Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Debbi Dachinger, Founder of Dare To Dream: Knock Out Training Programs and Podcast, located in Burbank, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Hi, I'm Debbi. I teach entrepreneurs, coaches, and speakers the effective steps to write a highly engaging book, run a company that guarantees I will turn your book, fully done for each author, into an internationally bestselling book, and show you how to easily book podcast interviews to gain immediate visibility and massive results. My customers are authors, coaches, healers, speakers, and entrepreneurs.
Tell us about yourself
As a spiritual entrepreneur, your message has the power to change the world. You have the knowledge and expertise to impact the lives of millions, but first, you need to be seen and heard. Are you ready to take the next step?
I'm Debbi Dachinger, host of the Dare to Dream podcast and Media Visibility Strategist. As a certified coach, I empower my clients with the strategies and confidence they need to stand out and shine. Whether you're looking to write your international bestseller or gain exposure for you and your brand through podcasts and radio appearances, I am here to support you. The world is waiting for you. Let's make you shine!
I am inspired in my work by being a witness to my client's trajectory and successes when they use the tools I show them and get massive results – it's exciting. I am motivated to show people how they can get their message out through books and interviews. This way, their tribe can find them, and they can easily sell books, sell out workshops, and bring in clients!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is that I am still in business after 16 years! It is a testament to how many people have learned media visibility systems through me and continue to do so, and a tribute to how much I love what I do. I am still here and still enjoying it.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest piece for me in owning my own business is how many pieces of software and apps, and systems I pay to keep my business in place. Last year I made an Excel spreadsheet of all the money going out to things like ClickFunnels, ActiveCampaign, and so much more. It was sobering to see the outflow cash number. The good news is I took a hard look and asked: What do I really need to make my business run? Then the few things I saw that were not enough of an ROI, I eliminated from my yearly expenses.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do it! If you feel excited to own a business and have a gift to share, please share it.
- On a realistic note - hire. Hire someone for a V/a, someone to do social media. Getting a team together is so important to build your business.
- Hire coaches to show you the way - find great people who have the business acumen that you do not – hire people who can take you there.
