BAD ADVICE: Don’t even THINK about launching until you have [insert arbitrary number here] subscribers on your email list. GREAT ADVICE: There is no minimum number. You can have a successful launch with a small list. You just need a strategy. Tarzan Kay is here to help. She argues that you don’t need a BIG email list, you need a mindset shift and a new approach that will turn your list, at any size, into a money-maker. It’s not a one-and-done process, but a launch of any kind is the most crucial phase of the whole process and believe me, it’s worth the mental energy and effort you’ll put into it.  Tarzan Kay has worked with Amy Porterfield, Marie Forleo, and so many other massive names in the online space… And she’s here for YOU. If you’re feeling burned out from creating your offer and need some guidance on how to launch it successfully with your small but mighty list, don’t wait to press play.
