Milana Leshinsky: How to Simplify Your Business and Play To Your Strengths

In this episode, I chat with Milana Leshinsky (the founder of Simplicity Circle) about her invention of telesummits, the changes in the industry, and what she’s up to now. Listen in as we discuss the world of online learning and much more.

Topics include:

  • Milana’s journey from classical music teacher to web designer and how she started her first online business as a stay-at-home mom
  • The first product she purchased that set her on this path (and the product that she created from it)
  • The first hire she made that got her to selling multiple items a day
  • How Milana shifted from selling e-books to inventing the telesummit (and eventually hitting the six-figure mark)
  • What Milana did once the first mover advantage of the telesummit wore out (and how she leveraged it for her own brand)
  • Why it’s dangerous to think that you can coast on an idea forever
  • What you need to do when you have success (and how you can ride the wave before it passes you)
  • Milana’s decision to leave a profitable company and how that led to the next chapter in her business
  • Her discovery of Simplicity Entrepreneurship and the two main decisions that come up in every business instance
  • How some skills are natural and simple for us and others feel more complex and create anxiety
  • How to play to your strengths
  • The relationship between simplicity entrepreneurship and the 80/20 rule
  • And much more!

Inventor of telesummits and founder of Telesummit Academy, Milana Leshinsky is teaching everything you need to know about hosting profitable online summits and virtual conferences. Milana originally came up with this idea in response to having two small kids and being unable to travel to industry conferences and events, so she decided to create her own. Since then, thousands of telesummits have been hosted in hundreds of industries, bringing peers and experts together to learn from each other.

A telesummit allows you to build your list, become a celebrated expert, get into the big leagues, and accelerate your business growth like no other marketing strategy out there. As the “queen of simplicity,” Milana simplifies the entire process of organizing a telesummit so that anyone, even a complete newbie, can hold one successfully.
