END YOUr Groundhog days!
END YOUr groundhog days!
Right now, you’re staring down the barrel of what we call The Groundhog Effect, which are the seven deja vu-esque stages you’ve been looping through (over…and over… and over again) since you started your business.
The Proposal Stage
It starts with an idea. You’re all in! Ready to make a difference, full of excitement, eager as hell to jump in. Nothing can stop you! You know what we're talking about - that moment when you mentally dive in head first full of hope and excited beyond reason.
The Planning Stage
So you foster that idea, protect it, nurture it, regurgitate food into its mouth… and all of a sudden it hits you out of the blue. You’ve got it! It’s so brilliant. Why didn’t you think of this before? This has been what’s missing. This is what you’re really meant to do! The hope intensifies. The passion boils up. The commitment is unwavering. You throw yourself into learning.
The Tasting Stage
You’re like a sponge, you just can’t help yourself. Sure, you’re clocking more Google searches a day than some small countries, but you’ve found a lot of great info and learned a ton. Whatever it takes, you won’t stop until you figure this shit out!
The Second Thoughts Stage
Inevitably you run into questions you can’t answer so you head straight to the nearest Facebook group and ask (or worse drop a survey). But the feedback is harsh, unhelpful, and just plain feels like a raptorsaurus-size piss raining on your parade. You thought you were on to something but now… you don’t know. How come people don’t get it? The doubt demons wake up. You don’t know what the hell to do.
The Phone a Friend Stage
You’re overthinking everything at this point but you aren’t giving up. You know this can work! You’re in too deep for Google to rescue your idea, but the pros should be able to so you hit the course and coaching circuit. It takes weeks of sorting through blog posts and webinar replays but you finally find “the one.” This is your golden egg.
The Walk of Shame Stage
Only problem is eggs rot. The whole thing ends up being a a financial junk punch. Fruitless, just like your loved ones told you it would be. You’re embarrassed. You really wanted this. You’re so far into this whole thing you hate yourself for thinking about giving up - but the alternative makes you want to dunk your head in a barrel of barracudas. You look for validation but there’s nowhere to turn. No one to lean on. Soon enough you find yourself back on Google.
The Ghosting Stage
It’s not even an idea anymore. It’s a spirit crushing sore spot. A symbol of your inadequacies and limitations. You just can’t do this anymore. It’s time to let it go and retreat back into your “real life.” You need to regroup. You’re not giving up for good, you just need a better strategy (and time to let the burnout wear off).
EVENTUALLY YOU GOOGLE YOURSELF right back to the very beginning and
The Cycle Repeats Itself
Hence the name, The Groundhog Effect.
You’ve been looping through these stages since the moment you started your business - from naming it all the way up to the mess you’re in right now. It’s a hamster wheel you unknowingly got on when you fell into the guru pipeline.
That’s why running your business feels like one of those ‘80s cartoons where the landscape keeps looping - only it’s your ideas that are going nowhere.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!

We Don't Buy Into
the must do’s, have to be’s, or can’t be done’s that are flooding the expert pipeline.
We hear the absolutes they’re slingin’ (e.g. you have to do launches, you have to be active on social media, you have to do webinars, etc) and our eyes roll so far back into our heads you can literally hear a clicking noise.
We do things differently because we have a better way. Everything we do from the ways we mentor to the events we throw center around one thing.
To the right people… to the right answers… to the right content. To the critical resources and relationships you need to launch, expand, and scale your business.
Here are some snapshots of what life looks like when you have the
one eighty lounge
in Your Back Pocket
i'm All In!
I’ve never been this excited to become a part of something before! This feels more “right” than anything I’ve done in years.
i'm ready to Make a 180!
Holy brand new platform - bye bye Zuckerberg! I don’t know what to swan dive into first. It’s like an amusement park with all my favorite rides. I feel like I’m staring down the barrel of the longest overdue new beginning - like the hope wasn’t a lie.
The speed dating is so insanely fun and addicting I’ve coordinated my “makeup” day with the sessions because I refuse to miss one. I’m making friends and meeting some of the coolest, most fascinating people (if only the internet was like this).
[speed dat●ing] - noun
A refreshingly different way to strike up conversations and get to know your fellow members without spending all day bouncing from one coffee chat to another.
I’m completely weaned off the expert bandwagon. I haven’t bought a course or fallen down a funnel in ages. Honestly, I do so little research these days I wonder if Google thinks I died. It’s crazy how full service this Lounge is. Anything I need, there’s always someone there to help. The Content Cellar is officially my new favorite content watering hole.
[con●tent cel●lar] - noun
An extensive collection of trainings, templates, diagnostics, checklists, spreadsheets (including every course, program, masterclass, theme party, you name it, Dre and Andy have created) so you can get the resources you need without the weeks of research.
lights. camera. Action!
I didn’t think I’d EVER be brave enough to livestream, but the open mic nights have cured me right up! It was like holding a public dress rehearsal in front of the most supportive audience on the planet. I don’t know where this confidence is coming from but I’m not going to kick it out of bed.
[op●en mic] - noun
A heckle-free venue where you can share your voice, rehearse your material and post your video SOSs so you don’t have to go public until you’re ready.
omg, the Huddles!
These are hands down the best invention since screw top wine bottles. I get more done in a week utilizing these bad boys than I used to get done in six months. It feels like someone nailed a rocket engine to my ass. That’s the only way I can describe how quickly they’ve helped me make shit happen.
[hud●dle] - noun
Short term, high voltage, objective-driven, popup rooms inside the lounge where small groups meet and join forces to collectively complete a common goal. (e.g. getting more traffic on Pinterest, creating a signature system, writing their homepage.)
did they forget a Zero?
This shit is like a small business mafia without any of the violence or corruption. I’ve never seen the kind of hook ups and steals flying around like in here. I don’t even want to think about how long it would have taken me to find a deal even half as good. This is the kind of outsourcing I can get used to.
[fea●tur●ed spot●light] - noun
Fully vetted, member-only deals on services so you can upgrade to the “done for you” stage in your business without bankrupting the “bills all paid” stage in your personal life.
All of this under one virtual roof.
all waiting for you!
