A Day in the Life of a SupporterMay 28, 2021
When we’re talking about New Paradigm Business models, the Supporter is going to appear as a coach or a teacher or a consultant of some kind. The Supporter is here to help you go from A to B the easiest way or fastest way possible. Supporters typically are ripe with experience or chock full of knowledge – maybe even both!
But for an online Supporter who meets with their clients mostly over Zoom, what do things look like for them outside of a client call? I've been a Supporter since 2017, and I'm not saying my day in the life is the same as every Supporter’s day in the life – but this rhythm works for me and has allowed me to scale my business to 5 figure months every month for over a year.
Before reading on, I encourage you to tap into your intuition, to listen to your gut, and remember that you get to do things your way. This is just one example 🤗
6 a.m. Wake up, do my skincare, make some tea, get my daughter ready for school
8 a.m. Come home, get myself ready, make some coffee, listen to a podcast
9 a.m. Check email and social media, check in with team and/or clients if necessary
9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Work on various things – depending on the day, I may be in client calls, group calls for The Lab, teaching a workshop, or creating content
12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. Eat lunch, relax, read a book, listen to music
1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Wait in the car line for my daughter to get out of school, sometimes I go live on Instagram, sometimes I spend time responding to DMs, sometimes I just scroll – yes, even productive people are human and mindlessly scroll Instagram sometimes!
3 p.m. - 5 p.m. hang out at home with my daughter, talk about her day, make a snack, watch TV, if I've really been in the zone on a project I may also beam making a workbook or static Instagram content on Canva
6 p.m. Sign out of all work communication for the day, no more emails no more DMs. If I work on anything else for the rest of the day, it is because I have the independent creative energy and desire to get it done.
So if you're paying attention, there are maybe three hours total in a work day that I might be directly supporting clients or students. But I actually only offer one on one calls with students in The Lab two weeks out of the month.
Now back at the beginning of my business model as a Supporter, the schedule looked a lot different. But my audience looked a lot different, my level of authority that I have with my audience is a lot different too. I had a sustainable business back in 2018, but it was a business model that made more sense for the level I was at at the time.
It's important to remember that as you level up, your strategy may need to change. And for those of you just starting, don't try to build a business model that looks like a Supporter who is a few steps ahead of you already.
