From Employee to $800,000 Launch with Luisa Zhou

Ever since she was a little girl growing, Luisa Zhou wanted to be the CEO of a major corporation. She just knew that the power, the money, the prestige that came with this would make her happy.

As a young adult, she began to climb the corporate ladder and said “…on the outside, things looked good. I had a great job and a great salary, but the truth was, I wanted more.”

What was the ‘MORE that this self-described introvert was searching for?

Afterall, she’d been an International Space Station engineer, a mobile payments start-up co-founder, and a digital advertising manager for companies looking to fuel their marketing with artificial intelligence.

She wanted to to start her own business but… she had to overcome the fears that were holding her back. The fear of failing, of giving up the safety and prestige of her corporate life.

One day she asked herself a question that would change her life…

WHY NOT?

Why not me? Why not now? What’s the worst that could happen?

She began to embrace this ‘why not mentality’…

She got comfortable with being uncomfortable. She faced her fears and went from employee to entrepreneur.

In this interview, she breaks it all down and walks us through her journey:

  • How her first group coaching program launch went from a complete bust to a six-figure success.
  • How she used Facebook challenges to grow her business.
  • And  the EXACT steps she took to generate over $800K in sales in her first course launch!

Best of all, you’ll discover how embracing Luisa’s “Why Not?” mentality can help you to go BIG and take massive action!

  • Family is hands-down the most important thing to Luisa.

  • This was a really informative and well done interview.

    It’s interesting that Lisa was successful by all outward appearances but felt something was missing in her life.

    She was looking to matter and have an impact.

    And boy did she skyrocket to the top.

    I don’t think I’ve come across someone who would probably consider themselves a novice just jump all in on a business not knowing if it would fully work.

    This is what separates those who have businesses and those with hobbies. She took action, put money down and said will figure it out as go.

    Very good to have clear objectives to reverse engineer from as she has done. And the fact it came down to knowing her numbers and then the fastest way to get there is through paid traffic after I guess realizing in her previous life that blogging and other formats were not her cup of tea.

    And kudos to the interviewer on the question selection and driving the conversation with followup questions.

  • I’ve really enjoyed her interview. Thanks for sharing your experience and insights of your business. I hope to hear more from you soon. Thanks Eemie

  • Money is really important part of our life. it helps us to get the things we need.

  • I’ve heard a lot about her. it seems to me that she is a fine fellow that has achieved such success. I think that at it all turns out

  • This is without any doubt a very interesting and informative article for everyone who strives to self-develop and improve.

  • I believe that an employee who does not stop developing can become a real professional and earn good money.

  • Definitely for me it was interesting, because it is useful to read how a person shares his experience in achieving the goal.
