Did you know that focusing on Love or the lack of it can impact your ability to make money? Think about it.

As entrepreneurs or business owners, we have to wear a lot of hats. If you don’t have the love and support in your life, it’s nearly impossible to serve your clients effectively.

Let’s look a little closer at that statement. Here are some ways love or the lack of it can hold you back from being successful in your business and in your life.

Love For Yourself

Do you have self- worth issues?  Many of my clients do when they begin coaching with me.   I’ve found many of them do not know their value. They are practically giving away their expertise, services and products because they are not charging enough.

Mompreneurs get stuck because they put themselves last. They put everyone else’s need before their own. They usually burn out quickly.

And speaking of putting yourself last, many people who have self-worth issues resist investing in themselves. They are stuck in a hamster wheel but won’t invest in themselves or their business because they are afraid to spend the money; they think they don’t deserve it. They usually have a security mindset and the thought of risk, any risk, is something they can’t handle and won’t deal with.

Loving Environment

I know this one all too well…I lived it for years.

A good support system is vital to your success!  If your family, your spouse or your friends question why you want to be a business owner instead of having a J-O-B, you’ll find those questions will start invading your thoughts too.  And then your focus becomes second guessing yourself and your decisions, especially if you are struggling for clients and money.

If your spouse or significant other is not supportive of your efforts, your focus on your business will be replaced by focusing on your relationship.

Some examples include:

  • Letting your spouse tell you how to run your business even though you know better.
  • Letting the spouse make decisions on what your business needs are and how to invest in your business and its operations – i.e. – your spouse demanding to build your website to save money and it’s not their area of expertise.
  • Reporting your income and sales each month to your spouse as if they are your boss. Yes, I know people who’ve done that.

These are people who have a need for a consistent income even if it’s pays you peanuts or is something you hate doing!  Your relationship is crumbling and you’re headed for a break up or divorce because your partner just doesn’t understand that small business owners can be successful and make money.

When you are concentrating on any or all of these elements, it becomes difficult to stay motivated and your business will suffer.

If any of this sounds familiar, you’ve got to take action to save your sanity!

Consider some or all of these steps:

  1. Talk to your spouse or significant other about your BIG PICTURE vision for your business. If they understand your passion and how you can serve others AND make money doing that, they may become more supportive of your efforts.
  2. If your environment consists only of people who are employed in a J-O-B, look for other business owners in your area to talk to and brainstorm with. An entrepreneur will understand some of the challenges you are face and you will feel less isolated.
  3. Give yourself the luxury of a self-help or Appreciation Day. Give yourself a few minutes every morning to think about what you’ve accomplished the day, week or month before.
  4. And if necessary, re-evaluate any relationships that have become toxic to you.
  5. Get a mentor who has personally experienced much of these issues or has helped over people overcome similar challenges.

Without love for yourself and without being in a supportive, loving environment, it’s going to be really hard for you to focus on all of the activities to make enough money to support your business and yourself!

I love helping business owners become more successful and I’ve developed several options to access the kind of help you need.

Goal Setting – it’s something I always spend time doing as we approach the end of each year.  It’s how I can get all the things done I want to do in my life and my business each year!

Are you setting your goals for 2019?

“Whatever your money goal is, double or triple it! You’re thinking way too small.” – Katrina Sawa

Do you have…

  • Big goals?
  • Small goals?
  • Mediocre goals?
  • Goals that make your hair stand up?
  • Goals that you’re confident about?
  • Goals that are so out there that you have NO idea how you’ll accomplish them?
  • Fabulous! No matter what your answer is, that’s fabulous, you know why? Because you have goals!!

Yep, I find that people don’t always have goals; at least not clearly defined money and lifestyle goals.  If you do, you are one step ahead.

And if you just picked one of those above but you really don’t have any yet… that’s ok, read closely though.

I want to encourage you to THINK BIGGER!

Set higher goals for yourself, your revenues and for what you REALLY want in your life as a whole.

I see way too many people settle and life is just too short to do that.

YOU DESERVE IT and so do those you serve!

Remember, when you think and play a bigger game, your clients will look up to you more, you will have more influence and be considered more of a leader in your industry.

When you hide, or play small, how does that make you look?

No matter whether you’re just starting out in business or you’ve been in business a while now, YOU HAVE HUGE VALUE!!

Charge for it, own it and share it.

Want to know how I set my goals and get more done each and every year?  I have a very specific planning process that I walk myself through and you can do it too. Go learn more about it on this video here and good luck on reaching YOUR big goals this year!

Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Do you like making resolutions every year? What about money goals – do you make them? Hit them?

I personally am not a big fan of resolutions. Every time in the past where I’ve set them, I’ve never seemed to actually accomplish them, especially when they had to do with dieting or weight loss. I do however, see results from and accomplish most of my goals that I set every year (personal or business).

So instead of resolutions if you’ve not had that much luck with them in the past either, let’s set some clear, actionable and realistic goals (especially MONEY GOALS!) for yourself and your business?

 

I believe in optimistic, stretch goals but also realistic goals. I’ve had a few mentors in the past suggest I set these huge lofty revenue goals for my business, I’m talking a million dollars or more, when I wasn’t even yet making one hundred thousand. Now that’s ridiculous in my mind. It’s not that a million dollar business isn’t doable but when you aren’t even to the first biggest milestone yet of $100,000, it’s so far from realistic that of course 99.9% of people would fail.

One thing you can do to help you figure out just how much money you could potentially make or bring in this coming year is to crunch the numbers. This is one of the FIRST THINGS I do with a new coaching client. We figure out what they want to or are selling and for how much, then we forecast so-to-speak how many of each they can potentially sell, etc. to see what “number” could be at the end of the year IF they do all the right marketing, sales conversations and other things that will be necessary for them to get there. (That stuff is the hard part.)

What I mean by crunching the numbers is that you start out by identifying all the different things you sell and for how much. For example, do you sell a $47 ebook, a 6 week group program for $297 and one-on-one coaching for $400/month, a $497 live event? That’s just an example of a coaching business with a few various options of products and services.

Another example is say of a professional organizer or other service professional who sells monthly services on retainer say for $200/month for 1-3 hours or a VIP Day or weekend for say $2000. Or percentage of book of business, whatever it is that you sell, you should be able to somewhat plot out what you could make.

Take a look at realistically how many of each of these you could sell each month based on what you sell now plus what you could sell if you marketed yourself a whole lot more and much more consistently. Could you double the number of sales every month? Plus could you raise your rates on what you’re already doing? Many business owners could. If so, add all those sales up, raise your rates, crunch the numbers and see what you get?

There’s a little more to this of course because you could be adding a new service or product this year and you aren’t sure how it will sell yet. You could be writing a book and expect to receive a lot more opportunities to get in front of audiences while speaking about it which you know will lead to sales. There are so many opportunities for increased revenues that could be right in front of your face but because you’re so close to your business it’s just hard to see.

When it comes to setting your BIG Money Goals for the year, here are 9 questions to ask yourself first:

  1. Crunch the numbers – what can you sell and how many each month?
  2. What else will you be adding to your product line / sales funnel to factor in for revenue?
  3. Where will you have some huge opportunities for huge exposure to factor in for lead generation?
  4. What did you do last year in revenue and was that working at 100% capacity?
  5. Is there room for growth and much more marketing to bring in massive amounts of more leads (if you knew how and what exactly to do?)?
  6. Could you revise some of your offerings so you are bringing in revenue in multiple ways?
  7. Can you stretch a little farther than your original goals to get yourself a little outside your comfort zone?
  8. Can you raise your rates or stop offering discounts and offer bonuses instead to keep more of the revenue?
  9. Are your goals realistic yet stretched and optimistic?

Finally, one of the things I always like to remind my clients when they get a little depressed about not reaching ALL their goals all the time…. You want to celebrate your accomplishments always. Every milestone you reach or goal you achieve is cause for celebration and reward. Make sure you keep track of what you DO accomplish, you’ll be surprised!

Ready to jumpstart your business in a BIG WAY?
