Praise for Your Little Side Biz:
Filmmaker Jonathan Whittle-Utter shares how putting the Your Little Side Biz training into action changed his circumstances completely:
“I now easily earn in a day what I used to earn in a week.”
Actress Liz Femi Wilson shares how she ditched all of her other day jobs because of Your Little Side Biz:
“My energy levels, my happiness – everything – have just increased dramatically in ways I never could have imaged before.”
“While my existing clients were thrilled about my coaching, I was finding it difficult to pitch my product to new people in a way that would get them into the ‘buy now’ or ‘definitely put me on your mailing list’ categories. Between a full-time job, a relationship, and acting, I didn’t have a ton of time for trial-and-error or to do my own research about marketing and closing sales, so I wanted to learn about this from someone who succeeded in building her own business and who could package the “need-to-know” in digestible chunks that I could then run with. Also, I’ve always admired how Kristine marketed her own services in a non-intrusive way that seemed to speak to my individual needs, and I wanted to learn more about how she does that. I signed up for Your Little Side Biz because I knew I needed help defining the “sizzle” in a way that I could implement immediately.
I got a ton of practical advice, especially about advertising vs. marketing, as well as how to reframe my approach to self-promoting – and about how to find my niche by tapping into my existing strengths, where I am NOW, rather than trying to stretch and become everything to everyone. She gave us great information about pricing and how to offer specials and packages without devaluing my product and over-working myself, so that I would still have energy to pursue my passions.
Furthermore, during our HotSeat coaching session, Kristine was able to nail down a highly relevant sizzle that opened my target market up by at least 400%. I was also very encouraged by hearing directly from other entrepreneurs, about their offerings, how they got started, and how they defined their business relationships to allow them flexibility for acting. I’ve always found Kristine’s offerings to be super-relevant, and a bargain for the amount of information she dishes out. I got the email at the right time and jumped on it. Life unfolded so that I am currently able to pursue my acting without needing to start my little side business. But should my situation ever change, I have a lot more confidence and a lot less hesitation about how to build that business.”
“Initially I was concerned that the info in Your Little Side Biz wouldn’t apply to me because I already had an existing small business and I wondered if the course would be geared towards those who were looking for a small business they could start. At the time, I wanted to bump up my business and to get more out of my time by bringing on some employees / independent contractors. I was hoping I would get insight, inspiration, and courage to take my business to the next level.
My expectations were more than met – I was able to talk out my stumbling points (areas that were holding me back), and identify exactly what was keeping me stuck. It turns out, it was mostly the fear of what my current clients would think and of how I would be perceived by those whose business I already had.
I am now about to begin maternity leave and I have 3 independent contractors who will be working for me while I am away. Because of this step, my business will continue to exist even when I am not working. This was my goal. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in developing a small side biz, or in taking their current side business to the next level.”
“The reason that Kristine’s course was right for me is that she teaches real business principles, and yet sets them up specifically for the actor or artist who is looking for a side business. I read entrepreneurial blogs sometimes, but I’ve never been tempted to buy any of the products on the market because I feel like they are going to be about building an empire and that is really not what I am looking for.
Kristine completely gets that this is one small part of your multi-faceted life. She pushed us all to move out of our comfort zones, and yet if anything, surprised us by how small a number of hours she wanted us to be devoting to our side business a month. I found her guidance and support so helpful, but the fact that she understood what place this business has in my life was really what made the class such a perfect fit.”
“I simply wanted some new tools to ramp up the business ideas I had… and I wanted some strategies on how to make them stronger businesses. The rate that you offered it at was very attractive and just knowing that it was you offering it, there was no question in my mind because you know your stuff. And I walked away with a ton of ideas and I felt like I hit the jackpot when I got a HotSeat with you. Pretty much every point you made and how YLSB was structured was very clear and outlined well.”
“As an organizer I’m often asked for resources. Whenever someone tells me they’re thinking about starting their own business, of any kind, I tell them Kristine Oller’s Your Little Side Biz is a MUST! Imagine attending amazing seminars on marketing, motivation and client relations in one easy-to-use audio format that you can listen to over-and-over and truly get your money’s worth.
Having this information to put you on the right track from the get-go is amazing, but YLSB is not only for business newbies. Even people who have been in business for a while are sure to be able to get useful info. I would highly recommend anyone to get Kristine’s YLSB course if they want to improve their side businesses, or heck, even their full-time business.”
“I decided to take Your Little Side Biz because I was tired of working for corporate businesses. My survival job was taking most of my time away from my acting career. I was working long hours, being underappreciated and undercompensated. I was hoping to learn of a way for me to have a job that would allow me to make a decent amount per hour for what I can offer. I wanted to learn how I can build my own business and be my own boss where I can make my own schedule so I can attend every audition I get! I wasn’t sure what Kristine was going to teach that could not be found in a major business book, but for the price point, I figured that I had nothing to lose.
I was very pleased at how simple Kristine made the whole concept of creating YLSB. I gained the tools to make my own business that were very applicable and easy to understand. Lots of golden nuggets! And I really enjoyed being in the hot seat!
Thanks, Kristine for all your help and insight and for creating a simple strategy to getting out of that dead end job! I started my own personal styling business where I am able to create my own schedule and make an income per hour that is proportionate to my talent – an income that is quadruple what I was making at my corporate day job. Best of all, I am doing something that I enjoy doing and am having so much fun helping my clients with their wardrobes. I have less stress, more money, and more freedom to pursue my acting career. Is that a win? I say YES!”
“Kristine Oller is nothing short of amazing – I believe she can help anyone build a profitable side biz. For such a small investment you have the potential of doubling or tripling your income. And there’s no reason to worry about buying this course and not being able to find clients because she provides numerous ways to not only find clients easily but find your ideal client.
No matter where you’re at – no business idea, or with a business idea but not knowing where to begin, or having a biz but wanting to take it to the next level, or even having a profitable side biz that’s taking over your life & needing to scale down – YLSB meets you where you are and takes you to where you want to go.”
“I decided to take the course because I had planted the seeds of a side business but I felt lost. I had a service and some clients but I didn’t know how I can grow what I started. I needed guidance and information on how to identify my ideal client, how to market and structure my price points. I hoped to learn how to best communicate the services I’m offering to potential clients and what should I best focus my time and energy on to get maximum results.
Your Little Side Biz totally met my expectations. My big take-away was that this is a side business and it only needs to grow as big as I need it to be. The purpose of this business is to generate income so I can continue to focus on my passion. This doesn’t need to take over my life and I’m in control of how big it grows.
In the past few months, I have returned to the YLSB recordings during different stages of my business’s growth and I always take away something www. When I first listened to the recordings, I learned how to identify my ideal client and design my marketing towards getting that client. I recently reviewed my notes and listened to the recordings again to inspire new marketing ideas and price points. This course is an invaluable resource that you can continue to gain from during different points of your business journey!”
“I was very intrigued as the “word on the street” about Kristine is that she has a fabulous way of not only communicating the oodles of knowledge in her head, but also effectively laying it out in a manner that keeps people motivated to move forward.
I viewed the course as a cost-effective way to check out her teaching style. I was hoping to flesh-out some tips, tricks, or ideas that would help me build upon my current marketing strategies to enhance them and therefore grow my business. She definitely met the expectations that I had. I especially liked how she pulled real-life examples into the course and brainstormed with people in order to really get the ball moving. I’ll be back to work with her further!”
