I’m Shelagh.
I HELP ENTREPRENEURS GROW A PROFITABLE BUSINESS.

GET YOUR PRODUCTIVE! PLANNER

 

PRODUCTIVE is an all-in-one business tool that walks you step-by step through a revolutionary system of managing your time to accelerate business growth.

YES! I NEED THIS PLANNER!

What if you could earn 2-3x what you do now in your business working fewer hours?

Just imagine what it would feel like to have the focus, systems, and support in place to:

  • Deliver on your deadlines instead of finding ANYTHING else to do when you see those red circles creeping up on your calendar.
  • Be free from debt and make the kind of money you’ve always known was possible in a few short months (sans guilt-trip).
  • Have the freedom to take off to the cottage for a week or break for midday margaritas while your business runs itself.
  • Choose who you work with, because your services and products are flying off the shelves like adult colouring books.
  • Respect the boundaries that keep you sane, so there’s no resentment toward clients or resistance around your work.
  • Honor commitments to yourself and your family (even if it’s as simple as weekly Zumba class or Tuesday night tacos).
  • But most of all, do what you love and leave a legacy that you’re proud of while actually enjoying the process.

Truthbomb: This isn’t a life reserved for TED-talkers and industry influencers. You can have it, too.

But you need more than the right skills, tools, and mindset to win at the entrepreneurial game...

You need a concrete plan to scale-up a sustainable, profitable business that works for YOU — not the other way around...

And more importantly, real-world business training and accountability from someone who’s been there, overcome that.

I’m Shelagh, a Business Consultant who turns your flame of ambition into a fire that sparks growth, lights up your life, and spreads your impact without the threat of burnout.

Through my fluff-free business strategy and hands-on support, I join forces with brazen business ladies who are ready to lose the excuses, so they can find the breakthroughs, cash flow, and joy in their business.

Check out how we can multiply your business income 2-3x starting today and create a life of more fun, freedom and flexibility.

Hire me to train your team, punch up their performance, and create win-win situations for your organization.

Or invite my down-to-earth business sense to raise aspirations on your stage.

About Shelagh

Shelagh Cummins is a Business Consultant, Trainer and Keynote Speaker who helps women entrepreneurs scale a profitable business — without drowning in debt, forfeiting family time, or working in their sleep. Through fluff-free business strategy and hands-on support, she helps you lose the excuses, so you can find the breakthroughs, cash flow, and joy in your business.

Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.

It was a Wednesday in October at 8:45 am and the school bell had just rung. I stood in front of my class, and realized that after 15 years, my passion for teaching had dimmed.

I was at the top of my pay scale, but knew I would never be able to afford the opportunities for my children that I wanted, or have the widespread impact I desired. So I traded in my job security for a parenting blog, a tutoring business, and odd corporate training gigs that kept my family financially afloat.

These early business-building experiences created a wellspring of wisdom for other women entrepreneurs who want to learn how to scale a business, build a team, and make more money while creating more freedom and flexibility in their life. But it wasn’t until I was the MC at a women’s business conference that I discovered my true calling and began facilitating women’s online business training.

My unique background in experiential education combined with corporate leadership training inspires my practical, hands-on approach to getting real results for my clients. My ultimate mission is to show other women that it’s possible to build a profitable, sustainable business — without drowning in debt, forfeiting family time, or working in their sleep.

Today, I am an in-demand business consultant, coach and speaker. I work closely with women entrepreneurs and entrepreneur organizations who want to Shake their MoneymakerTM, make strategic power moves that help them scale faster, and share their smarts and skills with premium clients who value what they’re worth.

Shelagh has a Masters in Education (University of Toronto), Effectiveness Coaching Certificate and Strategic Intervention Coaching Certificate. She is also the creator of Productive, an all-in-one business tool designed to take your days from busy to productive. To learn more, visit shelaghcummins.com/productive.

How to Be Easy to Hire

If you’re finding that some people are not hiring you after connecting with you, or there’s a steady stream of traffic into your website and then out of your website and there’s no client conversion in the middle, then this video is for you because I’m going to help you be easier to hire.

Being easy to hire is one of your most valuable assets, particularly if you’re in a service-based business. When you provide a service for someone else, you want to make it so incredibly easy to work with them.

First, you need to be available

When you don’t have set office hours or set times when people can reach you, it becomes a gong show trying to connect with you to hire you.

Second, you need to manage people’s expectation along the sales process

Having a set process for you to deliver what it is that you do is incredibly advantageous. Within the sales process, when someone’s courting you and wants to hire you, manage every step of that communication of what they should expect.

Third, you need to stand firm on your price

As the buyer, I get to choose whether the price works for me or not. If it doesn’t work for me, that’s not your problem. Your job is then to go find other people who will buy at that price. If the price does work for me, then let me feel confident about how you’re making me feel and that you’re bringing a huge confidence to the table and you have my project in good hands and you’re going to take really great care of me.

I wish you much success and I’d love to invite you into the Road to Seven inner circle, which is on Facebook. This is a closed group where we talk about topics like this. We connect with each other, we support each other. I offer some valuable business growth tools only to that community, so come on in. There’s a spot around the table with your name on it. I’ll see you soon.

The Secret Weapon Behind Customer Service In Your Business

If you haven’t audited your own customer experience in the last couple months, then I suggest you watch this video, so that you can create a process of unbelievable customer service.

Your brand is more than your colours, logos, and the words you use. Your brand is also how you make people feel.

My challenge to you today: have a mystery shopper go through your sales and enrolment process so they can experience what being your customer is like.

We’re looking for how you make them feel at every touch point in your business. People buy based on emotion and we want to make sure your business is making people feel the way you want them to feel when they interact with your brand.

Here’s your two-step secret weapon behind customer service in your business

Step One: Identify what emotion you want people to feel when they come across your brand.

Step Two: Find a friend who will be honest with you and ask how they feel every time they are touched by your business.

Go back through your customer service processes. Audit each and every step and create that consistent emotion through everything.

These are the kinds of topics we talk about in my inner circle. Come and join other entrepreneurs just like you who want to build a solid, powerful brand.

3 Ways To Stop Being a Victim As You Grow Your Business

If you find yourself playing small in your business or maybe even wearing the victim hat, where you’re allowing others to tell you how to run your business, and you’re not really stepping in and owning the process, then watch this video. I made it for you.

You will have days when you are not functioning in your place of power. You are not feeling on your A game.

It’s normal for all of us to not have amazing super powerful days every single day.

In fact, we sometimes have to feel the low so that we can really experience the high.

Your success lies in how you react to it.

And it involves being resourceful.

And you are always welcome to join The Road To Seven – my inner circle. See you there.
