When it comes to growing a business, one true test to see if you're really there is to ask yourself if you can leave for a few days without everything falling apart.
I don't care if you intend to build an empire of thousands of employees, or just to have one contractor, you need to develop and implement processes in your business in order for it to provide any freedom for you.
And in this video, I'm issuing a challenge to find four areas of your business where you begin to look at it and think differently!
So many entrepreneurs know what they're supposed to, but actually doing it is entirely another story. How do you get the courage to move forward and actually feel confident? Well, the answer might be a little more basic than you think.
We hear all the time that as entrepreneurs we're supposed to find a mentor.
Well, it's one of those things that is easier said than done, and something I get questions about constantly.
There's one thing that I talk about that is EXTREMELY important when it comes to finding a mentor and what they'll be looking for you to do before working with them. You'll need to watch to find out what that is!
There's a lot of 'secret sauce' when it comes to building your business. However, what I have discovered in working with clients, and with all of the businesses I've built, there is ONE word that can completely change everything in your business.
How clear are you on what you want, who you serve, etc. It's all about Clarity!
Let's be honest, getting everything done as an entrepreneur isn't easy.
And although you may feel like your to-do list is never ending, there are ways to get more done, and make it much less stressful.
Not all feedback is created equal, and although it's important to learn from your customers, too much feedback can do more harm than good in developing the correct products and services for your business.
Here's what you need to know when it comes to using the feedback you get in the best way possible.
What if fail...
Four words that have had held me back more times than I count, and I know they hold my clients back on a daily basis. It can be a basic thing like starting that first business you've been dying to start or taking a huge leap in your current business.
Dreams are a funny thing.
Although we feel like they should be something that drives us, they aren't always. Instead, they turn into something that paralyzes us. They get us excited, but then they get us scared. Then the longer we dream about something, the more paralyzing it can become to actually do something about it.
We end up dreaming about it for so long that what if....
What if we actually do something about it, and this thing, this ONE thing that we have been dreaming about for so long just doesn't turn out like we hoped?
Then you're left with nothing. You have a dream that didn't pan out and that was your only...
You have a great idea for a business, and you think it's absolutely brilliant. But then you get super terrified that if you talk to ANYONE, they're going to run with your idea and it's gone forever.
So I've seen customers actually go away and develop something for YEARS, only to finally get a perfect item to market to discover that it's not what their customers want. And they can't sell it.
Don't make that mistake, and in this video, you'll learn how to avoid it.
It's been a while, and I'm discussing why stressing over our passion can sometimes lead us down the wrong path.
Instead of worrying about what you're passionate about, it could be more beneficial to ask yourself four important questions instead.
Many people believe that running out of money is usually the reason for a business failing. But that's not necessarily true. If you actually take a step back, you'll find the answer, and that's what we're discussing in this week's episode.
Get on the list, and we'll send you info when we open our next challenge!
