I’ve been throwing a lot of strategies at you lately on how to do certain types of marketing, marketing, marketing so I thought I’d change it up a bit this week. I’ll get back to more build-your-biz type of videos and articles next week but the topic I’m sharing today is very important also in building a successful business – trust me on this! Try to hang in and read the whole thing today because you may be surprised…
Just in the last couple weeks I’ve been talking to dozens of women who are not happy in their personal lives, their love life or have some beliefs about themselves they know need to change in order to be totally happy and confident.
One thing I don’t necessarily teach on is how to change your limiting beliefs….there’s a lot to that subject and many ways to alter or squash your limiting beliefs. I can recognize them in almost any client of course as they are probably the thing that’s stopping you from…
- Getting your marketing done
- Doing more on social media
- Writing more content
- Recording more (or any) videos
- Speaking more
- Doing your follow up calls
- Redesigning your website and brand
- Getting a new headshot
- Raising your rates
- And so many other things that would help you jumpstart your business!
So, if you think you could benefit from altering slightly or completely squashing some of those limiting beliefs you may have then I can recommend a couple clients who focus purely on this area.
Where I can help you is in your personal life…in addition to advising you what to do and how to do it in your business and marketing, I work with many clients with creating a happier environment for themselves so you CAN do all the above mentioned action items with more confidence and ease (revenue producing activities mind you that you want to be doing).
Clarity and Confidence are two very critical components to having a successful and profitable business. Some things that hold us back from being 100% at both of these is “other people”. It could be a close friend, family member or loved one who doesn’t “get” what you do or you’re trying to do with your own business.
- They don’t “get that you have such passion for something that you’re willing to not take in a paycheck for a while, while you build the business of your dreams”.
- They may not “get why” you want to invest in yourself, training, a mentor, books, CDs, workshops and a new website and they may say things that sound hurtful to you yet they believe they’re “helping”.
- They say or do things that squash your own belief in yourself, make you doubt yourself or worse yet, forbid you to move forward in some way.
This is why I have most of my clients “evaluate” their own relationships when I find a little lack of confidence or clarity or lack of drive too. Often times we find one or two people who “just don’t get them” who are influencing them in some negative way for the entrepreneur, yet they think they’re doing it because they love you.
THIS COULD BE THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK FROM BIGGER SUCCESS IN YOUR BUSINESS….SERIOUSLY.
So one thing I’m REALLY GOOD AT is helping you communicate your needs, visions, passions and purpose with your loved ones (or significant other if it’s them) so they start to really “get you” more and what you need from them (if anything), to help you communicate better with them and manage your energy when around them.
I know this first hand because my ex-husband didn’t “get me” when I first started up my business either. We were married when I started it after quitting my last job outright and telling him I was just going to start my own business. He was fearful that I wouldn’t bring in a steady paycheck anymore and was always saying things to me, little digs, that hurt very much and didn’t encourage me at all. In fact, I would go out networking during the day with a big smile on my face saying everything was ok and then I cried myself to sleep many nights because I felt like I wasn’t loved and supported.
I ended up divorcing him after eight years in marriage but just two years of trying to make him understand how I’d changed and what I really wanted to do and be now but he didn’t have any interest in knowing what it was that I did or in understanding me at that point at all.
I just don’t want anyone I know or any of you who are reading this to be in this or a similar situation at all. It hurts not to be supported for what you really want to do or be. I wasn’t willing to settle any longer being with a man who made me feel that way and I hope you aren’t either.
I also had a father who I rarely saw mind you, but when I did he would find something wrong with me. He would tell me first how proud he was of me doing my own business and making a decent living at it (since I never asked him for money he assumed I was doing ok, although he did always ask) but then he would find something like my weight or my crooked teeth to comment on and asked “why haven’t you fixed that yet?”.
I’m getting a little vulnerable with you here because apparently there are hundreds of you if not thousands of you out there hiding with these types of people in your life. And you’re trying to build a successful business around something you’re very passionate about yet you can’t understand why it’s really not taking off yet or why you’re not as successful as you wish you were or why you keep working so hard at it and you’re going no where fast.
It very well could be because of something going on with you personally. You may not even see it just yet but it could be there. I would love to help you identify if or what is keeping you stuck in your business and how to get through it so you can finally take charge of your life and design the business of your dreams!
I have a video that I recorded this week (my hair isn’t that great in it but I had to sit and record it the day it came to me) that I’d love for you to watch, it’s not that long.
Here is the page to watch the video: http://youtu.be/WtJtgWZOEfA
I also have a 3 hour, 3 part tele-training that I recorded a while ago to compliment my book, Love Yourself Successful, but is a very powerful experience that I know those of you who are still reading this probably need extremely bad.
I’ve lowered the price on it from $197 to $97 for this week AND I even threw in a few bonuses too, I urge you to go take a look at this page and go grab it. It has some powerful and deep experiential exercises that I want you to go through. When I went through these myself it opened me up to the kind of loving relationship (the one I have now) that is completely supporting, love-filled and passionate, just what I wanted.
And if you’re single and don’t have that special someone yet, then it will help you identify who WILL BE the perfect partner for you, what you really want and need in a relationship so that you’re completely supported as an entrepreneur too. (Plus a few of my online dating tips!!)
