BETTY TRANSITIONED FROM SIDE HUSTLER TO FULL TIME ENTREPRENEUR BECAUSE OF THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

"I am amazed at how far I’ve come with the business in a little less than one year. I think if you asked Betty 1-year ago how far she thinks she would have come with the coaching business, she would not have guessed this. Results can happen at any time, even when life stuff is happening"

Your thought leadership and body of work are what differentiates you from everyone else doing the exact same thing as you

And the thing is: You already know that you’re meant to do more than what you’re currently doing

- both online and offline, in order to make a name for yourself, confidently speak on topics that matter to you, and attract clients and opportunities from all over the world.

Right now, you’re craving to show up bigger and bolder

When you look ahead at the next 1-3 years, you know there’s a “Next Level” version of you that wants to be SEEN AND RECOGNIZED 

There is a version of you that is cooly confident, creative, and playful AF, speaks articulately with conviction, and is damn good at what you do

  • People are captivated by your story
  • They love being in your audience and hearing your perspectives and ideas
  • And they know that you’re THE person they NEED to work with, right now

✨ This version of you isn’t comparing yourself to the big names” in the industry

✨ This version of you doesn’t let your excuses get in the way of showing up consistently

✨ This version of you doesn’t GAF about what your ex from college or the people you used to compare yourself to think

✨ This version of you is sparkling from the inside out 


Also…

At the same time:

You know you’re good at what you do… But you often struggle to believe it yourself 

You’re successful on paper… But constantly feel like something is still missing 

You see people online doing what it is you want to do, so you intellectually know it’s possible… But these 1-3 year dreams still feel out of reach 

Overall, you secretly know you’re meant for something bigger, and now you’re ready to figure out exactly what that is 

In order to do that, you know you’re going to need to start building a body of work that encapsulates your thought leadership 

The Thought Leader Club is meant to help you with exactly that

Our client’s transformations go much deeper than what you might see online:

CREATING MORE CAREER OPTIONS

Creating a body of work is a lifelong SKILL that I believe all of us should have. It lets you create more options while being able to do work that you're truly proud of and excited by. It’s not just a “cute little side hustle” - This matters. 

HAVING TOOLS YOU CAN USE FOR LIFE

Being confident in articulating your story and ideas, having an online presence that attracts opportunities to you, and becoming known for your thought leadership are all life-long skills that you’ll now have under your toolbelt. 

LESS COMPARISONS & IMPOSTER SYNDROME

There's no shortage of entrepreneurs, content creators, or thought leaders in your niche. But by the end of our coaching, you'll fully recognize and appreciate the value and impact of your work (and show up like the badass you know you are) 

JENNIFER TRAVELS, WORKS HER 9-5, AND STILL SHOWS UP FOR HER BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

"It may be unconventional, but I sought out business coaching with a priority to learn how to be a relaxed and joyful entrepreneur. That’s how I want to make money. I’m not here to be stressed out and hustling and grinding. I’m here to make an intentional and profitable impact while living my dream life"

To all the hard-working high achievers reading this right now… 

I know that for years, you’ve dreamt of being recognized for the good work that you do. But you don’t want to do this in a “traditional” way. Nope.

Instead, you want to build something from the ground up, something that you can proudly call your own

But you’ve put that dream on the back burner as life and career pressures started piling up. Sounds familiar? 

Well, I know this because I WAS you.

Hi! I'm Cheryl Lau

I’ve quit two prestigious career paths (law school and PhD/academia) to pave my own entrepreneurial career. I literally went from being the Asian parent’s dream child to their biggest disappointment. 

But since starting my business and brand in 2019 and consistently building my body of work + thought leadership, I’ve created a business & career that not only makes me proud… But it also makes my parents proud 

In just a few years, I’ve also been featured on the TODAY Online, spoken on the CNA 938 radio, and have held workshops for the University of Toronto - Victoria College, the Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Center, and the Asian Wander Women. 

My podcast, The Side Hustle Club (Now known as The Thought Leader Club), was the recipient of the 2023 Golden Crane Award (from the Asian American Podcasters Association)


MEET YOUR COACH

And I’m ready to help you do the same. 

All of this was only possible because I’m now known for my unique thought leadership, I’ve built a body of work that compels best-fit clients to work with me, and I’ve ultimately built a business & career that I’m so, so proud of

NICOLE *FINALLY* STARTED HER DREAM OF YOUTUBE AND IN JUST 1 MONTH, SHE CREATED 4000+ SUBSCRIBERS + OVER 100k VIEWS

"Cheryl pushed me out of my comfort zone in the best way possible. She pushed me to go after my dreams and start my YouTube channel. Not because it was on her agenda, but because it was one of my dreams since the beginning"

I need to be upfront on who is likely NOT a good fit for The Thought Leader Club:


One more thing...

  • You truly don’t enjoy creating content (short form or long form). It feels like a chore and something you wish you can simply outsource

  • You believe that having certain credentials, years of experience, publications, etc is a prerequisite to thought leadership; Having traditional forms of recognition is a must for you before you’d like to move forward with building a body of work

  • You are feeling a sense of urgency to make money in your business ASAP. This is a top priority for you, right now

  • You’re looking for a program that teaches processes, strategies, or frameworks that gear you towards a 6 figure+ business, or a program that’s very focused on scaling your business 

  • You honestly think it’s cringe to “share your story”. You’d much rather have a very polished, put-together, or aspirational brand (because doing so is genuinely on-brand for you) than one that’s relatable

If you resonate with any of the above, it’s possible that The Thought Leader Club may not be the best-fit program for you. 

Your next step is to book a discovery call to chat about you joining us inside the Thought Leader Club

But for everyone else, if you’re now thinking: “Okay, based on who it’s NOT for… I think this is actually THE place for me to be in for 2024…”

Here’s what you can expect from our discovery call:

I’ll be mainly asking questions to get a better understanding of what’s going on with you, where your head is at, what you’re looking for in our coaching together, etc

Of course, we will also have a conversation about 1) What are your dreams in the next 1-3 years, 2) The coaching, skills, and actions you need to make these dreams happen, and 3) How working together will support and guide you with all the above


getting to know you

After I have a good understanding of where you’re at, I’ll also share where I see are the biggest gaps OR the areas where coaching will be the most beneficial for you.

These will be the areas that I’d like to work with you on as a coach 👀

three biggest gaps

Lastly, if I determine that we would be a good fit, then I’ll go into more detail about The Thought Leader Club program itself ✨✨✨

Overall, it will be a casual conversation :)
