***Season 3 of Duped is here! This week we're sharing the first episode of the new season.***

While the words “best practices” are heard again and again in online business, do you ever take time to actually think about what they mean?

Some of the best practices we’re being sold in the online space have been so normalized that they’re now business as usual — 

Which would be fine if they weren’t so damn SHADY.

And that’s why now is the time to start asking questions.

In this episode of Duped, we’re digging in to see how some of these “best” practices are actually serving us.

And all you can think is… is there some way I could have avoided this?

Awkward moments are just one of those things that are going to happen. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some steps we can take to make them happen less often.

Ever had an awkward moment with a client? Of course you have!

Whether you’ve been in business for one year or 20 years, awkward moments with clients are bound to happen. 

Maybe they ghosted you. Or maybe they haven’t paid their invoice despite numerous requests. Or maybe they completely changed direction mid-project and expect you to go back and start from square one.

Whatever your awkward moment may have been, the result is usually the same — you’re left feeling stressed out and not at all pleased with what’s gone down.

In this episode, I’m talking about those awkward client moments when things get sticky and you’re trying not to completely lose your shit.

Have you ever heard someone in business talking about strategy and wanted to roll your eyes?

The unfortunate reality is that in the online biz world (and many other places!) people use the word strategy simply as a means to charge more money for whatever they’re selling. 

But we all know that not every strategy is created equal.

Having said that, strategy is a GOOD thing. Strategy makes your life easier as there’s actually a roadmap to guide your work. Best of all, strategy is something you can actively be selling. 

In this episode, we’re digging deeper into Selling the Strategy and I’m going to give you specific examples to help you get into action.
