032 Defining your purpose, Building Your List and growing your tribe – Coaching Call with Matt

September 6, 2011

Today, you get to listen to a “Learning With Leslie” first. You may or may not know that I did a contest for a free coaching call.

Listen to This Episode

Well, the winner of that contest was Matt, from Building Lean Muscle Mass. So, we had our coaching call on Sunday.

At the end of the call, I thought to myself – “Man, there's a lot of value in this call. I think my listeners would enjoy it”. So I asked Matt, if he'd be ok with me releasing it to you, and he said yes. So, you can thank Matt.


In the coaching call we talk about the following things:

  • Why it's important to define the purpose of your blog
  • How to build your Mailing List
  • Growing a loyal Tribe that want to come back to your blog regularly

I gave him tips that he can use to accomplish those things. Now, he has a clearer direction in mind and can use those tips to take his blogging efforts to the next level.

Now here's the thing. I'm wondering if this is something you would find valuable. Would you want me to do more of these kinds of episodes? Did you find a lot of value in it? If so, I need you to let me know, because I won't do it if it's not valuable. So leave a comment below and let me know.

As usual, you can always call the hotline with your questions, comments and suggestions.

The number is – (888) 835 – 2414. Sorry, you don't get to hear my wife singing it by reading. You'll have to listen to the podcast for that 😉

All the best!

Leslie Samuel

    “If you’re not building a list, you’re not growing a long term business” Thank you for that word of advice. The questions you asked asked Matt after you made that statement are the exact questions I have now asked myself. This is REALLY going to help me to narrow my focus when it comes to the free ebook I’m working on now. I’m still listening to the podcast… so I may comment again lol. Forgive me if I do that lol. I just had to jump in with that point.

    • It’s a very true statement. If I hadn’t been building a list, I probably would’ve given up a long time ago. There was a time when my site was dormant, but because I had a list, when I started back blogging, all it took was 1 email to get me back to where I was before. Having a list is crucial!

    “I forgot how to speak” lol Leslie you’re the best, and so is your podcast. YES i want to hear more like this. It was extremely valuable to hear a real life problem and solution idea. Especially since Matt’s niche is not a far cry off from my own 😉 Keep the good stuff coming! Love your work.

    Simply Natural Ideas.

    • LOL, hey it happens. I don’t always know what to say 😉

      Glad to know that you found value in the podcast. I have something brewing in the back of my mind, but I’m not telling. At least, not yet!

  • Andrea says:

    Thanks for the podcast, Leslie. I liked it a lot. You do REAL Coaching! Your questions were just great. One could really hear how Matt started to re-focus, getting new ideas & inspiration not only from your questions but also his other findings (the pop-up you have).
    I have come to you from Pat`s blog and listened to the one podcast or the other and watched your first video. But this one is really awesome. Due to this I will join your bootcamp and come by more often. Keep this up! Andrea 🙂

  • Matt says:

    You’re welcome Andrea, but truly all thanks belongs to Leslie. I’m working diligently on implementing the improvements Leslie and I discussed, and I’m really excited! It’s a great feeling when excitement and sense of purpose unite! It’s a far cry from excited and drowning in a sea of information.

    The lesson to take away from this is to always be on your best behavior when on a coaching call, you never know when it might end up in a podcast. 🙂

    Best wishes,

    • Awesome to know that you are working on implementing the improvements. I see you already changed the design. I like the look better – much cleaner. A good start.

      Hey, you never know. You speak to me and it just might make it online, lol. Great chatting with you.

    Leslie that was a great coaching call and I would love to hear more calls. I know everyone says to build a list but my question is: What do you say to the list after you have one? Once you give people the course or report etc.. to get on your list then what? I think that is what has been holding me back from really moving forward with list building. I would like to know how you create such interesting email headlines to entice people to open them and also how you create content for the emails you send out.
