Cheryl Phan’s Personalized Program ”First Things First” Can Help You Turn Your Hobby Into A Business In 30 Days

Cheryl Phan has over 35 years of experience in sales and marketing, having worked for some “Big Name” corporations.  Going into business for herself helped hone her skills even more. She is now offering “First Things First” and is helping women turn their hobbies into workable businesses in 30 days.  Cheryl’s first hand knowledge and willingness takes “newbies” toward entrepreneurial independence in an empowering and exciting way! Cheryl’s FREE Startup Mini Course begins June 6 -10. She’ll teach you 5 easy steps to getting started in your own business and share step-by-step videos.  The Rickie Report shares the details.

It’s all happening on:

 

 

With over 35 years’ experience in sales and marketing, Cheryl Phan has work with companies such as Clear Channel Radio, CBS Radio, Fox TV, Palm Beach Post, KB Advertising and she is the owner of three self-made businesses.  In 2002 Cheryl took a courageous step, leaving the TV and Radio industry to be her own boss and start her own decorative painting business in Palm Beach County Florida.

 

 

Cheryl has established herself in the business building area implementing sales and marketing campaigns that move product, drive traffic, and increase sales.  Her true gift is coaching other women how to turn their hobby into an online business with real-world knowledge, simple techniques and sprinkled with fun. 

 

 

 

Cheryl lives in West Palm Beach, Florida and is a proud mother of two daughters and four grandchildren. She also serves at The Hand Of Hope special needs ministry. Philanthropy has always been a passion and helping other comes naturally.  Although she wears many hats, art is her real love.

My Story

 

Cheryl shares with The Rickie Report, “I’m going to be very vulnerable right now and tell you what happened to me back in 2008. Remember the recession? It’s hard to forget especially when it hits you hard. I had a decorative painting business and I still do to this day, but back then I didn’t prepare myself for the what if….  The business was going great. I was making a ton of money. I had a crew of people working for me and life was good”. 

 

My wake-up call

 

Cheryl says, “Until the bomb hit, and everyone was losing their homes, including me and to make matters more challenging , I had a hip replacement a few months before it happened. I was in panic mode. I was scared and put my business on hold and took a job making peanuts working 40+ hours a week that barely paid my monthly bills.  The bad news was I was laid off. The good news is it forced me to take along hard look at my life and what I was going to do to generate an income. I swore I would never let that happen again. So, I put on my big girl panties, pulled up my bootstraps and started my decorative painting business back up again, but this time I made some changes. I knew that I couldn’t depend on painting one job at a time. That’s when I took my business online and started building multiple streams of income from my painting business”. 

 

 

Sure, it was a little bit of work…

but I only had two choices:

 

 

 

 #1 I could go work for someone else and live paycheck-to-paycheck with no job security.

 

 

OR…

 #2 I could step out of my comfort zone and learn new and innovative ways to build my business. 

 

 

 

I decided on option #2 the benefits outweighed the reality. 

(Let me say this, if I can do this at 64 years old, so can you!!!)

 

 

 

It’s not rocket science, it a learning curve!!!!

Fast forward to 2022

 

During my journey on social media, my following started grow, new leads started pouring in and people started asking me for advice on how to start their own business. (BTW, this is the number one reason most women never get started, because they don’t know where to start).  I spent numerous hours responding to DM’s and messages until one day I decided to take my business knowledge, and experience and start sharing it with other women who are in the same boat I was in just a few years ago. 

 

FULL DISCLOSURE

 

When I started my business 20 years ago, I had no clue what I was doing. I made a LOT of mistakes and many of them were costly. I don’t want to see others make the same mistakes. I’m also a true believer in “#paying it forward”. When you are a blessing to others you will also be blessed. So long story short, I am now coaching women how use their God given talent to make money online doing what they love. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the good stuff!

 

 

 

I created a course called “First Things First”, because let’s face it, nobody has years to figure this out, especially when you’re over fifty. 

 

I’m giving away the first 5 modules from my course in a Free Mini course webinar. This is where I will teach you how to set up your business from scratch and get legit. Remember, If you’re not legit, you’re still a hobby. 

 

 

My hope is that you’ll not only feel inspired, but also know I’m here to help in any way I can. If you have a dream of starting a business, it is possible!

 

Get the details and let’s get you started!

Why Not, It’s FREE!

 

 

https://www.subscribepage.com/ftfminicourse

 

 

 

The #1 reason most women don’t start their own business is because they don’t know where to start. 


No more excuses, because I’m handing you the first 5 modules from my course on a silver platter. I’m going to show you exactly what you need to do to GET STARTED

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you struggling to make sales on social media?

Are you tired of watching everyone else make money?

Are you dabbling with your hobby and want to turn it into a real business?

 


If this is you, I want to invite you to my FREE Startup Mini Course. I’m going to teach you 5 easy steps to getting started in your own business without the tech.  I share step-by-step videos teaching you exactly what to do, I’ll give you worksheets to help you peruse through without being overwhelmed and all my resources, so you don’t have to figure it out on your own

 

Even if you have already started your business, I would encourage you to attend there may be some golden nuggets that will help you expand your business. Plus, I’ll have some awesome prizes for you to grab while you’re there. 

 

 

It’s all happening on:

  • June 6-10-2022

  • Register to attend the private “Startup Biz” Facebook group

  • No particular time: Come each day when you can

What   exactly   are   you   waiting   for?

 

The time is NOW!

Hope to see you there!
Cheryl

Stained glass artist Marcia Greene is originally from New York City. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in fine arts with an emphasis on sculpture and jewelry design from SUNY Albany, NY in 1971. When Marcia began working with glass in 1978, she found it to be the ideal medium for her, as it incorporated the three-dimensional aspect of sculpture with the detail and glitter of jewelry making, and she has made it the focus of her art ever since. Besides utilizing thousands of types of glass, Marcia enhances many pieces with metal accents and embellishments and other media such as geodes, crystals, stones, and shells. Marcia says, for her, “design inspiration is everywhere: nature, real life, photos, [my own] imagination,” and her style can run the gamut from Victorian to modern abstract, making each work a different and fascinating experience. 

 

 

 

 

 

Stained glass by Marcia Greene

 

 

 

In addition to being an artist, Marcia is a Registered Nurse Board Certified in Psychiatry and Mental Health and currently works in a local Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Facility. Marcia is part of a therapeutic treatment team that encourages and guides the clients with substance abuse and mental health issues to use various artistic mediums to create their own works of art to work through their issues. She believes that art and the act of creating has a healing effect on people and is grateful to be able to use her knowledge and talents to help others.
