A few weeks ago I was interviewed by John Lee Dumas of the podcast Entrepreneur On Fire!
Being interviewed on Entrepreneur on Fire is a moment that many entrepreneurs aspire to. John Lee Dumas has a huge and very faithful audience, and he’s just a super warm, friendly guy!
Our Entrepreneur on Fire interview was recorded very shortly after a big happening in my business life. My most well created, well designed, most comprehensive launch had just completely fallen flat!
I had done a ton of Facebook ads, my list was growing, and people were going through my sales funnel – until the day the cart opened! On the day the cart opened, I got my first sale while I was on the treadmill in the gym. I was so excited. I wanted to implement something that one of my mentors, Todd Herman, said he does in the middle of launches… he picks up the phone and calls some that buy!
So, I jumped off the treadmill and ran to my office. I wanted to make sure everything had worked and that she had gotten her welcome email, her access to the program, etc.
The wind was COMPLETELY out of my sails when I noticed that NOTHING had worked. Her tags weren’t applied. Her welcome email hadn’t been sent. Her access had been granted – nothing!!!
As I started frantically determining what was going wrong, I was on the phone with infusionsoft. I was completely shocked to find that my 150 infusionsoft campaigns (and the five years of work that had created them) had all been deleted that morning!
I looked at the computer and started to cry! The thousands of dollars I had spent on ads were gone. The launch plan – it was out the window. How was I going to turn this around?
