Sponsored By: Ready? Set… Ad!
When I left my job at Facebook I knew that I wanted to continue helping parents figure out how to leverage Facebook Ads to build their businesses so that they could build a life with the freedom and flexibility to be the parents that they wanted to be to their kids – just like I did. For a long time I resisted creating a digital course because I love working with people 1:1… but, then I realized that my resistance to a course was actually limiting the impact I could have. With a course, I will be able to help exponentially more people than I would ever be able to help 1:1 and today I am so excited to announce that this episode is brought to you by my digital course: Ready? Set… Ad! The course just opened for enrollment this week (at the end of January 2019!) and when you enroll you’re going to learn everything you need to know to run Facebook Ads that consistently put your message in front of the people who want and need your product – and most importantly that you’re making money! Visit ReadySetAd.com to learn more – but don’t delay, we’re closing the doors again soon – next week actually!
