From Busy Working To Working With Intention: How Financial Advisor, Blogger and Speaker, Jackie McCann-Scott Grew The Invested Mama Brand & Business
Thursday March 5, 2015
With just over a decade in the financial services industry, Jackie McCann-Scott had seen some success. However there was something gnawing at her. There was a little voice inside her head that knew that she was ready for more.
Jackie knew that it was time for the financial services industry to see a face lift. She wanted to make it a more meaningful experience for her clients and take a more holistic approach to helping move them and their money forward.
She knew she wanted to help women and in particular momma’s… Invested Mama’s… and that is where this story begins...

Not long ago, Dr. Laura Nurse would sit in her office for 8 hours and sometime see just one client, on a good day. As a new Naturopathic Doctor, she was doing everything she knew to market herself yet she just couldn’t figure out why people weren’t running in to see her.
What Laura didn’t realize at the time, was that she didn’t know the ‘business’ side of her business yet. She knew how to be a great Doctor, but was still unknown to the skills of how to be a great entrepreneur and marketer.
Laura and I met in April 2013 and we got to work. In just 15 months, Laura has achieved:
- Building her practice to full time capacity;
- Moving into Phase 2 of growth (hiring help and expanding);
- A fantastic reputation in her community as a leader in health for women;
- Creating a beautiful online brand and presence;
- Feeling personally happy and no longer stressed out over wondering where her next client is going to come from;
- Feeling confident in the business side of her business!

As I reflect back on 2014 I am in awe of how things turned out. It’s been a pretty incredible year. This year I realized my biggest dream of becoming location independent. Living for six months in South America (three months each in Ecuador and Peru), laptop in hand, was incredible. Opening up new markets in the US, Europe and Australia was inspiring and creating and launching my online signature group coaching program, Mindset & Marketing Mastery was scary, fun and totally awesome.
When I look back at what helped create this success, there are a few things that stand out. But today, I wanted to talk about the one marketing tactic that worked the best. It wasn’t Facebook ads, webinars or even blogging.

When I decided that I wanted to be a full time coach helping self-coaches grow their business so they can change the world with their gifts, I knew a few things had to change. Before that decision I was running my business more like it was a hobby than an actual business. In fact, some of the clients that I had were getting better results in their businesses than I was, because I wasn’t 100% committed yet!
This time however, enough was enough and I wanted real results that translated into making a great income and had me being 100% location-independent.
To make that happen I did the following 3 things differently:

This month marks my 6th year as an entrepreneur (how did that happen?). Over the last 6 years I’ve had one business fail (big time), one that evened out and one that made it (it’s this one in case you were wondering).
According to many of the successful entrepreneurs I know, I’m right on track. All of them have had failures before they hit the jackpot. When I realized that it’s been 6 years since my first home based business, I couldn’t help but reflect on what I’ve learned over the years. It’s been so much. Deciding to venture out into the unknown land of entrepreneurship has been one of the best blessings of my life. It’s helped shape me in ways I didn’t know it would. I’ve learned about things I never knew existed (who knew what a split test was or shadow work?) and I’ve become a braver, bolder and smarter version of myself.
This week, I want to share with you 6 Big Marketing Lessons I’ve Learned In 6 Years Of Entrepreneurship. Marketing itself is a big topic but there are some fundamentals that will stand the test of time.
