I received a flood of emails from business owners like you, who share the same struggles: How do I increase prices without scaring clients? What should I focus on each day? How can I double my revenue? How can I get organized and manage myself?
Some of you wanted answers and signed up right there, like “L,” who emailed me and signed up after we spoke.
“Everything we talked about is exactly what I feel I need right now to really ramp into the professional and expert I feel I am inside, and to be able to share my work with the world. Your 10% off is the cherry on top of signs that this is right! I feel like this is just the right size program for me with the partnership I am craving – right now I feel like I’m the only one out there serious about making it work! I am in. It’s going to stretch me financially, but it’s a small matter relative to what we’ll be creating. The program is perfectly timed, and this is my leap of faith. Especially given that expenses are intense…BUT everything you said described me exactly, so it must be a sign that I can turn this around right now with you on my team! I will take all of your belief in me that this is going to happen right now.”
Talk about COMMITTED.
People who are ready just take charge like that.
I also spoke to some of you 1:1 to see if the program was right for you. We talked through fears, challenges, and where you’re stuck.
What’s clear is that running a business is not easy. I hear you.
Running a business (even one you love) feels like pushing a boulder up a hill every day. If you’re not sure where to focus your time or not seeing money come in the door, it feels even harder.
Tomorrow, you’ll get Key #2 to increasing your revenue – the secret that no one is telling you. This ONE tactic literally turned my business from broken to six-figures in less than 6 months.
But today, I want to tell you that it’s how long you remain in this grey area, of it feeling “hard”, that defines if you’ll be successful business owner in the long run.
Because in addition to people I spoke to who took action and will start their training tonight, I also spoke to people who didn’t *really* know what they want. They told me they wanted more money and results, said it was exactly what they’d been looking for for months, and were frustrated with themselves for not earning money.
But they also said, “I REALLY need to do this, but want to think about if it’s right…” “I’ll revisit later when I feel more clear…” “I’m not sure I’m ready…” “I’m ashamed I haven’t touched what I already bought!” “Now’s just not the right time…” “I want to reflect more…” “I’m struggling and really need help, but have to hold off…”
Trust me, I get it. I circled around my own business coach for a year before I finally made a decision. On our first call, I knew I needed to do something about my business, but felt uncomfortable taking a huge risk and investing $9K. I wasn’t sure if
I’d get results. “I need more time to see if it’s right for me!” I said, and then spent the next four months overwhelmed, trying to do it alone, exhausted by the programs I was trying.
I called my coach again, this time embarrassed. Again, I needed her support badly but STILL, I got spooked. I got off the call telling her “No, I’m not ready” AGAIN and then sat on the couch, numb. Would it work for me? Should I still try it alone just one more time? It was a lot to think about and I was scared! So scared that I tried to do it alone again for two months. Another two months of stress and little money later, I finally called her again. This time I committed to the program and paid $9K in one fell swoop. I made $10K back THAT month and completely paid off the investment for the year program. I made 5 figures every month after that and haven’t looked back.
This is not an indictment of the people who aren’t ready to commit, or even yourself. You’re not less brave if you say you “need more time” or “aren’t ready.” It’s not about you. It’s about the amount of time you’re willing to spend in pain, not getting results you want, feeling frustrated.
And if you’re not ready to commit, that’s okay. It really is! All I want you to do is see how “delayed” thinking can sabotage your success and keep the results you want at bay. Thinking a lot and being stuck in fear will NOT get you more clear. Just like the longer I waited and tried to do it alone, the less results I got and the more stuck I felt. It was a self-fulfilling prophecy that I couldn’t do it, but it wasn’t because I couldn’t do it, it was because I was trying to push so hard from a place of “stuckness.”
Ultimately, I had to realize I needed a totally new mindset, new strategy, and new guidance to get me out of the quicksand. After waiting six months before I contacted my coach, then denying I needed help for another six(!), I made more in one month than I had entire quarters in the previous year.
So I know you can do it solo, but it will just take longer. You’ll feel more frustrated, and I don’t want you thinking you can’t do it. I turned stuff around in ONE MONTH. Did I work hard? Yes! Was it easy? No. BUT…The biggest change was that I saw I could make money and that I had the capacity to be successful. And I was no longer under the illusion that the longer I waited, the more results I would get.
Turns out, the opposite was true: The sooner I admitted I needed help and got support, the faster I was able to feel confident in MYSELF as a business owner and start crushing it.
Another truth: if your business feels hard or you’re not making the kind of money you want to make, NOW is not only the ONLY RIGHT TIME to take action, it’s the BEST TIME to get expert help to stop feeling stuck.
With 3 spots left in the program, if you’re less than thrilled with where you’re at, you might just need to think about what you’re doing in a whole new way.
For some people, it’s just not the right fit. For others, it’s exactly the missing piece they need to move forward.
With love and warmth,
