What people are saying about the challenge:

Before taking the Seven-Day Challenge, I was really struggling to get a helicopter view of my business and grasp how all the different elements came together. I loved the idea of dedicating 7 days to focus on my business and how it all worked. Filling in the worksheet was my favourite part and biggest takeaway. It gave me a  comprehensive and robust overview of my business and it helped me identify where my gaps were and how to bridge them. I highly recommend doing Naomi’s 7-day challenge, it is time well spent working on your business.

90 Days to Financial Wellness

I have just completed Naomi’s Seven Day Challenge and found it so valuable.  As well as it helping me to re-evaluate my income targets and optimal charges, the course pinpointed the areas that weren’t working so well and will need my focus if I want my business to run smoothly.

I recommend this to anyone either starting out, struggling, or looking to grow, particularly in the service sector where the main product is expertise.  I look forward to the opportunity to repeat this at a later date to see how much I have progressed and possibly work with Naomi, in more depth, in the future. 

Steve Besley

Fundraising Consultant

By luck I sat in Naomi’s talk, she was so powerful that I had to tell it to her then and there. Joining her in a 7-day challenge taught me a great deal about building valuable client relationships, value my services and how to set appropriate pricing. The course was very rich and interactive Naomi is relaxed, friendly yet extremely professional! I now feel so much more confident and determined. I had an amazing experience. and I highly recommend it. 

Meadow Doyen

Internet Consultant

Whilst I have been an expert entrepreneur for nearly 10 years; I found the 7-Day Challenge delivered by Naomi Johnson absolutely timely and thought-provoking. We all have those ‘self-doubt moments’ on our entrepreneur journey where it feels that things just aren’t clicking into place.

Naomi guided us through a well thought out ‘transformational journey’ that should take me from my current state to ideal future state – providing that I roll my sleeves up, get stuck in (no more procrastinating!) and follow her system. Amongst many things, I would say my biggest take-away was the work I did to develop my ’30 Second Business Pitch’ which I am really looking forward to putting into practice

Henry Pavey

Collaborative Working Consultant

As a newly qualified Nutritional Therapist, I’ve been really struggling with how to earn back all the money I’ve spent on my training in a professional and commercially viable way. When I came across Naomi’s Expert Economy I knew I’d found the right group.

As a middled aged business woman (I’m used to running a bigger business not being a one woman band) I don’t want to reinvent the wheel and this was one of the things that attracted me to the course – taking a credible short cut.

The systemic approach laid out in even the 7 day challenge will pay dividends.  I love the planner and having the paper copy of Naomi’s book. Great value as ever and thanks for your clarity and energy – you’re an inspiration. Everyone struggling with making their solopreneur business pay you your full worth should do this course.

Connect with Naomi

Lead by Naomi Johnson, founder of The Expert Economy

Having started her business using LinkedIn, Naomi quickly shot to fame as a LinkedIn expert, writing LinkedIn profiles for business owners, thought-leaders, executives and sales teams.

Beginning her business with absolutely no notice, Naomi had to quickly establish her business to make her rent within two weeks. Applying the knowledge and skill accumulated over years of training other companies how to use LinkedIn and position themselves within their market, Naomi quickly became the ‘go to’ expert within her industry with her name coming up in all the right conversations. By her fourth month, she was operating at full capacity and by month five, she won Oracle as a client.

Today, more than seven years in, Naomi’s LinkedIn profile writing skills are still in high demand. In 2014, Naomi wrote What to Put on Your LinkedIn Profile now in its third edition.

However, having reviewed and written hundreds of LinkedIn profiles while in conversation with the profile owner, Naomi noticed that most people’s businesses were not structured in a way that would allow them to easily win them business and meet their income targets.

Having been in this position herself and written her book Grassroots to Green Shoots in 2010, Naomi knows first hand the trouble this can cause and is on a mission to help others avoid the same fate.

She went on to write her book The Expert Economy and establish The Expert Economy community and training network.

Her clients have included Canon, Asda, Oracle, Fujifilm, DLL and Datel but her real passion lines in working with Expert Entrepreneurs to position themselves as ‘go to’ experts so prospects come to them pre-sold and ready to buy.

philosophy

We believe that Expert Entrepreneurs should be billing 70% of their time, spending 20% of their time studying to remain an expert in their industry and 10% of their time moving all the pieces around. When we make sales and marketing a natural by-product of our study time we remain inspired and fulfilling our purpose.

Sales conversations are an opportunity to help a prospect fully understand the extent of their problem and offer valuable solutions. If a prospect can implement the solution by themselves they should do so. We only want to take on the clients that really need us to transform their situation and will receive a clear return on investment.

The goal of an Expert is to solve meaningful problems for their clients, taking them from where they are now to where they need to get to. They may not have all the answers or know all the variables, but they have the experience to know how to navigate the course and stick with the client until they arrive at the destination.

The New Economy

With technology dramatically changing how we do business, more and more people are opting to leave the confines of full-time work and to start their own business.

Confident they can deliver their clients an excellent service, they create a new logo, build a website and start attending networking events, sure that if they show up enough times their ideal prospect will hear of them and want to hire their services.

However, for most people, this isn’t the case. Months pass, savings drain away, the pressure to earn increases, relationships fracture and confidence dwindlesThe clients they do win come sporadically and are less than predictable. Instead of enjoying each day living the dream, each day becomes a juggling act as they struggle to keep each plate in the air.

And for all the books and courses available, nothing seems to unravel the confusion around to get leads and what to do with them.

The Expert Economy is on a mission to change this. In this seven-day training event, you’ll be introduced to a simple formula that, if applied, will quickly position you as the ‘go to’ expert within your industry, so your name comes up in all the right conversations and prospects come to you pre-sold and ready to buy.

Curious? Then why not join us and see if our approach is for you.
