I’m writing this article on What To Do When You’re Down to Your Last Few Hundred Bucks because it’s been a common theme lately with some of the small business owners I’ve met, and even some of my own clients when they first start working with me.

None of us want to get in business to fail. We certainly don’t want to go back and get a J.O.B. either. So what do you do when your business just hasn’t produced a lot of revenue yet or you started out and maybe invested the money you did have in some of the wrong places?

No one likes to talk about this either, like it’s not happening or something. Don’t be embarrassed if this is you because it’s pretty common. Entrepreneurs are starting businesses with less and less money all the time. And while building your business on “a shoestring budget” is totally possible, it’s not necessarily a good plan.

So, what do you do when you’re down to your last few hundred or thousand dollars? I know it’s scary, I’ve been there a few times during my stint as an entrepreneur. 

  • Do you quit the business and go back and get a J.O.B. quickly to make some steady income? Maybe but from what I’ve seen it can take just as much time to find a good new job as it is to seriously do what it takes to ramp up a business for positive cash flow.
  • Do you sell stuff in your house, garage or storage unit? Maybe if you can, I have!
  • Do you ask relatives or friends to borrow some cash to get you by? Maybe if you can, I have done that too a couple times throughout my eleven years in business so far.
  • Do you contemplate bankruptcy or which bills NOT to pay? I’ve been there too…
  • Do you stress out, stop taking care of yourself and argue with your loved ones? Hopefully not, as that won’t really help the situation. It’s hard not to though I know.

I suggest you do some or all of the following (and possibly some of the above as well):

  • First, you want to have faith. Have faith that you’re meant to do what it is that you’re doing, that the clients and money will come, that you will be able to pay the bills and have faith in yourself to be shown what to do to make it happen.
  • Second, you want to take advantage of whatever is right in front of your face for fast cash or savings. What can you sell? How can you reduce expenses in your business or your household? Cancel a few things for example.
  • Third, I’d recommend you dial for dollars…meaning call everyone you know, business or otherwise and initiate some sales, offer special deals to buy this week, ask for referrals and more. Remember these are WARM calls, not cold calls when you already know the person or are in the same organization, etc. This includes calls to your social media “friends” as appropriate; don’t just send a message when you need to create cash though, pick up the phone.
  • Next and actually concurrently, I’d recommend getting out networking. When you meet or see people in person, those who could potentially become a customer or client, the relationship building process goes much faster and you can usually get clients pretty quickly if you meet enough people each week. Make sure you have something they can buy today when you find a hot prospect.
  • Finally, it truly may serve you best to spend a few of your last dollars on the right training you need to learn how to do all this if you’re not sure how or what to say or sell. Free stuff will only get you so far. Having a real business and marketing plan that you can follow and focus on week after week will ultimately lead you to a much more successful business. There are affordable options, you just have to look for them.

Of course there a couple dozen other marketing strategies you can try as well but these are the fastest path to cash in my opinion. Then once you do all of this, you can add other lead generation, marketing and sales strategies to the mix for long term business sustainability and profitability.

For more information on how to jumpstart your business, your marketing and your life, come and talk with me in a complimentary business strategy session. You’ll be surprised how much clarity you’ll get out of just this one session. I can help you look at the big picture, goals all the way down to the smallest implementable detail.

Join me on a CRUISE in March 2014!! Guaranteed to Improve your Family Life and Increase Your Business 

I know that many of you are looking at ways to finally jumpstart your business into high gear….well here is a FUN way to do it! Join me on a CRUISE in March 2014!! 

Guaranteed to Improve your Family Life and Increase Your Business

We are bringing together a pretty eclectic group that is well versed in Entrepreneurship for a 7-day fun-filled and business minded CRUISE to JAMAICA, GRAND CAYMAN, COZUMEL & more!

(This pic is from a cruise I went on to Jamaica in 2007 and ohhhh what fun it was – it was technically for business too so I got to write it off!)

If you’re interested in cruising just for fun there will be a vast amount of excursions, activities and more planned just for our group.

If you’re looking to grow your business and want to take a vacation in the process so you can write it off then bring your family too and join me and at least 5 other speakers who will be helping you with the following things to grow your business:

  • Understanding the economy and how it affects you is crucial to your success and experts will share the most current trends, updates and information for small business owners
  • Getting the word out about your business and doing it for little or no money!
    (you don’t want to be the best kept secret in your industry forever do you?)
  • Changing your mindset to success. You are deserving of success, aren’t you?
  • How about getting your butt kicked (lovingly) into full gear success! (I think that’s my talk ha ha)
  • Selling and Loving it, do you know people buy the same way whether it is a home, yacht, car or food? You will learn new ways to offer your products and services so that more people buy what you’ve got!
  • Learn the art of persuasion and influence, without offending! This is crucial to building any 6-figure business or bigger.

Not sure where you are in the business world? Just starting out, already established or making a change? This is for you regardless of where you are in your business, trust me. Plus you KNOW I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t going to be a TON OF FUN TOO!

Joining me, the other 5+ speakers and even many of our significant others on this cruise will increase the chances of your huge success in business, relationships and life!

Jason and I are looking forward to cruising the Caribbean with you next year….but believe it or not, you do want to decide to do this or not NOW. Early bird discount ends Sept 9th!

If you’ve ever gone on a cruise before you know it takes months of planning, especially with a large group like they are planning. Plus you can make more payments to make it really easy to afford the sooner you decide to come.

One of my clients, Chris Marcelle, is hosting this and doing all the planning, coordinating, filling cabins and more for this cruise plus it was her idea for the agenda and to gather all of us together so if you’re interested and HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL…please contact her. She said it was ok for me to give you her contact information in this email so here it is plus here is the page below to find out all the dates and details!

Questions? Contact the organizer, Chris Marcelle chris@chrismarcelle.com or (321) 258-5916

I look forward to partnering with you on your journey to complete happiness and success this year!

Hey everyone!

If you missed this year’s conference you definitely want to mark your calendar for next year’s eWomenNetwork Annual Conference! It’s literally the best conference I’ve ever gone to for high powered yet very friendly networking, brainstorming, training on your business and FUN with a capital F-U-N!! It’s always held in Dallas, TX and next year it’s happening August 7-10, 2014. Click here for info. I don’t promote conferences like this hardly at all, this is the main one I recommend and I DON’T even get a kickback or commission to do so!

I like to do my own, personal recap of the conference every year, sharing photos, experiences, a few tips and things I learned, etc. so that’s what today’s post is all about.

First off, I know you want to see pictures of WHO was there and WHO I saw or hung out with right? We’re a reality based world after all!!

Then, so what did I learn right?

I listened to speakers on trademarking in your business, changing the way you look at your business forever using leveraged business models, and so much more in the breakout sessions that I did attend. Typically at these types of events I don’t do a lot of listening to speakers although they are great! I prefer to spend the majority of my time connecting, networking and building relationships with the people at the conference so that when I follow up, I have more concrete things to follow up with and on and there is a lot more invested in the relationship rather than just a business card exchange.

If you want to learn how to maximize the conferences and events you go to there are two things you can do today!

  1. First, I have a FREE video training that I did on this topic while I was gone….if you haven’t seen it yet – go watch it on youtube now.
  2. Secondly, I have a very affordable product that I’ve created called my Tradeshow Networking Tool Kit – it has audios, workbook style tips and information as well as tons of examples of print handouts, signs, order forms and more! All for $57. Go find out more and pick it up today – it’s worth it to know how to work the room at any event I promise you!

I’m looking forward to sharing more with you to help you start, grow and market your business!

Make sure you’re signed up in the box to the right of this page to get the Free Entrepreneur’s Success Kit because then you’ll for sure not miss an issue of my weekly ezine full of business and marketing trainings, videos like the one above, invitations to free teleclasses and so much more to help you!

Here’s to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!

You can too if you focus on a few specific things I share about in today’s video.

This week’s video is about targeting in on what you really need to be doing to get more referrals or to do more joint ventures with other complimentary business owners. Go watch it, I promise you’ll get some juicy new ideas for yourself!

I wanted to share with you some REALLY JUICY TIPS over the next few weeks so you could really utilize the rest of your summer and implement some great strategies in your business.

So, stop slackin’ and get back to work! Just kidding…we need balance too, hope you’re enjoying your summer. I am…just happen to have the two annual conferences I typically go to back to back this year with a camping trip to Yosemite stuck in the middle! I know, busy…but actually when I go out of town for conferences and trips and stuff for speaking or whatever, it’s actually a break for me and fun.

Since I LOVE WHAT I DO, networking at events is exciting and easy for me!

I know this doesn’t come easy for a lot of you however. Some of my more introverted coaching clients however are downright scared to go to such a big event. I make it easier for them however by sharing more with them on what to do, say and bring so they’re more confident about it all.

You can make a BIG impression at an event or conference AND get a lot of paying clients from such events …. IF you know what to do to maximize your time before, during and after each event.

My video today is all about this and how to maximize your time and efforts at events and conferences whether you’re an attendee, an exhibitor or a speaker – go watch it, I promise you’ll get some juicy new ideas for yourself! 

CLICK HERE NOW TO WATCH! 

 

Oh and I happen to have an excellent product on my website where you can get much more in depth training on all this stuff, what exactly to do, say, send, set up, be prepared for/with, etc. It’s my Tradeshow Networking Tool Kit – pick it up today for just $57 if this is an area you need some help with

This weeks video tip is about Perspective, how we look at things, how others look at us, and more. Take a look and then really think, get outside your own head for a few minutes and really “SEE” how others could be perceiving you or your business/brand. Not only that but depending on “your perspective” the above gmail issue could be good or it could be bad or intrusive right?  CLICK HERE NOW TO WATCH!
