Demi Karpouzos is a business consultant and list builder who'll help you get more clients and make more money.
We live in a world that puts A LOT of value on high-stimulation.
The louder, faster, bigger, bolder you can be, the better!
As an introvert…a sensitive one at that, this didn’t bode very well.
It put me on a motivational roller coaster where one day I was singing “This girl is on fiiire” in my best Alicia Keys voice as I put a check mark next to each item on my to-do list...
And the next day I was completely in overwhelm as my brain was flooded with all the things I needed to do, and to make matters worse, wherever I turned, another course/program/book/challenge/strategy was calling my name to be added to my already long list of “need to do in order to get my business out there.”
Helllllooooo procrastination (although I did make it up to level 238 in Candy Crush). With all the time I spent organizing, re-organizing, creating, and getting things 'ready'…let’s just say I could have herded 77 kittens in a quicker amount of time.
The driving force behind my playing small?
Grit. Or more accurately the lack of it.
As soon as resistance hit, I found myself spending too much time in my inbox, on Facebook, organizing, creating…everything BUT putting myself out there.
Each month I would set goals and each month I'd miss the mark no matter how well intentioned or busy I was.
Something in me just knew that I was reaching my tipping point…I was tired of having to say no to indulgences. I was tired of not being able to invest in programs, products, vacations, people to do the things I didn’t know how to do (ahem..Facebook ads), and to indulge in an endless supply of soy chai tea lattes.
The reality was I was tired of not feeling secure. Feeling like I was never going to make it and that it was just outside of my reach.
That was a few years ago but I still wear the memory as a badge of honour because it was the struggle that pushed me to take a chance on me and go all in.
It paid off. (And not without a lot of effort.)
With over 400,000 people on my email list, a consistent flow of clients, interviewing people like Jordan Belfort, being featured on some well known media circuits, having 90% of my business come from referrals (and all while honouring the introvert in me), I'm happy to say that it has all worked out.
I mention this with a humble heart and only for the purpose so that you know that it can be done.
It all starts with your mindset and your ability to manage it when you're faced with challenges.
It’s What I Help My Clients With.
Whether they are thinking about starting a business, or they're already in the entrepreneurial trenches; I show them how to become focused, consistent, and persistent.
My mission has become my obsession: Empowering women by helping them see their goals come to fruition. It’s my cause, my calling and the oxygen that sustains and fuels me.
Something magical happens when women become financially successful. They look for ways to help others and make real change in this world. I'm honoured that you've taken the time to visit and I can't wait to see what sort of magic you make happen.
Some Fun Facts...
- I cry easily. So if we’re out and about, just make sure I don’t hear a sad story, a happy story, a possible sad outcome, a possible happy outcome….just bring tissues.
- My car is where a lot of magic happens. You guys, not like that. Some of my best ideas are birthed in my car, AND It’s where I sing my heart out...on the off-chance I make it on The Voice.
- I LOVE books and I'm incapable of picking a favourite. There have been hundreds of thousands of pages I’ve lost myself in.
- I’m a morning person and my happy vibe is almost always set to high. So if you’re not a morning person, I’d probably….er…I’d definitely annoy you.
- I'm addicted to soy chai tea lattes.
- I'd much rather have an experience than a thing. (unless it's a chai tea latte)
- A beach + A corona (or two) = A happy Demi
