- Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
I’m Lisa Johnson and I run a couple of businesses. My first is a wedding planning company called Carmela Weddings and the second is a Coaching business called Just Own This. I live in Hertfordshire UK with my Husband and 6-year-old twin sons
- What is your business about?
My main business now is my business coaching. I started it just over 18 months ago and very quickly scaled it to multiple 6 figures. Because of this, my Husband was able to leave his 9-5 and take over the wedding business.
I help entrepreneurs not only start their dream businesses and make money from them but also once they get to a stage where they have no more time to take any more clients on. I then help them scale with passive income methods such as memberships or courses.
- What made you get into this line of business?
I went back to work in an investment bank when my twins were 5 months old. I had to really for money and then realised I was just so unhappy. I didn’t love what I do and just thought ‘is this it?’ I decided to try to have a business on the side and started Carmela Weddings. However I had no business experience and made a ton of mistakes! I also had really poor money mindset – I come from a humble background where we didn’t have loads of money so I booked a coach who helped me work on everything. I worked and Carmela Weddings became so successful that other businesses started asking me how I had turned things around. I helped them and they started making money. It became apparent I had a talent for explaining business concepts in a much easier to comprehend way and Just Own This was born!
- What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
My twins would wake me up early even if I didn’t! I’m a big believer of having a routine that includes positivity and intention so I might listen to a podcast, write my goals down and go for it from there. I’ve had to work hard at not going straight to emails or social media – it’s such a time suck and I get nothing done if I start there.
- What is the best advice you have ever been given?
To just start. I think people can spend so long thinking and analysing what they could do and in the end if you just start, you can tweak and work things out as you go along.
- What is a book you would say everyone must read?
The E-myth is a must for anyone that wants to run an online business. It’s amazing!
- Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I have a free guide to earning passive income that people have been finding useful. If you’d lie to see it you can just Click Here
- What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
This sounds bad but if I’m ever worried, scared or fear doing something I remember just how little time we have here on Earth. You have to just go for it because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed!
- What do you love most about helping others?
I’ve been where they are. I love giving people freedom – it’s so important and so rewarding. There is such a perception that we can either do something we love OR make money and it’s just not true!
