(In this week’s training video, you’re actually going to see a lot of the “real me” my students appreciate, meaning, I’m not sugar-coating anything. You’ll see me get on my soap box, I’ll gently swear, you’ll see my spiritual side and even witness my eyes well up in tears, all while I take a stand for you to stay out of fear as you build your business.)
OK, here goes. You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again:
Successful entrepreneurs do the things that others are simply not willing to do. And sometimes this means we do the thing that we might perceive means that we are “failing.”
Watch this week’s 5-minute video to hear what I did when I first started my business, my own story of doing it and why you shouldn’t feel ANY shame around this topic:
Fear is the killer of dreams. It is THE lowest vibration on the emotional spectrum, and it is beyond challenging to take the actions that we need to take to succeed when we are afraid about our ability to pay the bills, like I was.
And so, if you are experiencing fear around your business, your first step is to do whatever it takes to raise yourself out of fear. It is vital to your success.
I’ve been there. And the reason that I am HERE today is because I assessed my resources, asked for help and made some cash-on-the-side.
I consider this week’s video required viewing for anyone who’s within the first couple years of their business or experiencing a little “dip” in revenues. I hope it inspires you to focus on the actions that move you toward your destination. And for 99% of us, that means focusing on where we can generate CASH.
You can do it too! I believe in you,
P.S. Do you make a wish on 11:11 too? I’m always so happy when I catch it on the clock or my phone. Go ahead and make a wish when you watch the video, as if it is that time on your clock too. (Maybe you can wish for some cash-on-the-side, just for the short term.) 😉
With my little family and I moving to Paris in under 3 weeks, (wheeeee, it’s really happening)…
…I thought you would enjoy getting inspired by one of our many international clients, who just happens to be French.
Click on the short 2-minute video below to hear why Laurence hopped on a plane several times a year for more than 2 years to come learn from me and be in our tribe (HINT: she doubled her income TWICE and got her life back):
You may ask yourself why someone would travel all the way to the United States to participate in The Client Attraction Business School from overseas. (Isn’t there something similar there?)
According to Laurence, there isn’t anything else like CABS in the world.
You see, when you have the strategy and direction you need, the tools to get out of your own way and a tribe of people who will fiercely believe in you and lovingly hold you accountable to your goals, you scale quickly and get your life back.
You go from being stuck, having no life, feeling stressed out and not knowing what to do next to having the amazing feeling that comes when it all….works. (You dramatically increase your income and finally experience freedom again.)
I want you to really hear that it’s not that Laurence worked harder and put in more hours to double her business…twice. With the tools she got here, and her commitment to implement, she was able to serve way more clients, in less time.
The process our business owners go through is now proven and it works time and time again.
It’s why they come from all over the world and stay year after year.
I kept hearing from business owners from Europe and the UK that they wished they could have me run a Leverage Track across the pond. For a long time, that wasn’t possible…
In addition to the two Leverage Tracks I run in the U.S., I’m starting a Leverage Track of CABS in Paris this Fall to welcome business owners on that side of the world.
Wherever you are, there is something incredible here for you.
No matter where you are in the world, I assure you, this Strategy Call is incredibly valuable, and there’s no charge. I promise…just the Strategy Call alone will be worth it.
P.S. Why be lonely and lost when you can be among your peers with an aligned community at your back, with a step by step process so that you can know what to do next? The thing I want you to hear today is that you don’t get what you want…you get what you commit to. We are here to support you to hold that commitment – to yourself, your clients, your family. Join us.
In case you think I don’t ever feel resistance or fear in my own business, I’ve got news for you.
I DO sometimes have fear around making radical changes, especially when it would allow my business to experience big leaps. (I’m human.)
But, I’ve figured out a process to help me get past the resistance, and I think you’re going to find it really useful too.
In this week’s video, I have some vulnerable sharing for you, and more importantly, I’m sharing how I’ve moved through resistance and into massive action that would make most people’s heads spin:
I know how difficult it is to let go of any aspect of your business, let alone the parts that you believe can only be done by you.
These are the things we want to hold on to for dear life… (I call it white knuckling.)
Hey listen, we’re all human. We all experience fear to some level.
Yes, I can see the path for the global expansion of my own business, AND I also have to watch out for the resistance that could keep me exactly where I am now. But, despite some fear, I have learned to hone my own entrepreneurial confidence (and pardon my language)…
…screw it and do it anyway.
Here is the process to Entrepreneurial Confidence:
This is where the giant leaps that transform your business happen.
So, what parts of your business do you currently believe can only be done by YOU?
Would you be willing to loosen your grip on this part of your business, in the name of your growth and the evolution of your business?
I know that this is super vulnerable, and yet, please share these with me in the comments, OK?
And then I invite you to get bold with me and release the white knuckling.
We can jump together.
P.S. Successful entrepreneurs are those who do the things that others are unwilling to do. And 99% of the time, the thing that they do FEELS scary, but they do it anyway. Just sayin’. 😉
(A loving warning… I’m going to be a little bold today.) 😉
OK, here goes:
You may think you want things to change. But the question I have for you today is…
…do you really?
Do you have the audacity to be one of the few who actually becomes the person who achieves the goal or vision of your future self?
Change sounds great…
But in reality, change feels Un.Comfort.Able. And we are programmed to avoid it at all costs.
In this week’s video, I get super real with you about the ego, fear and what it looks like when your old reality meets your new paradigm. It’s not often pretty, but it’s crucial you know this. Watch it now:
When presented with an opportunity to experience change in our lives, our minds automatically go to the things we perceive we have to give up. We focus on the:
Costs over rewards
Losses versus gains
Excuses versus possibilities
And therefore, most people don’t experience change, even when they really, really want it.
“The more important the goal or vision is for your soul’s evolution, the more resistance you will encounter as you pursue it.”
And yes, damn. It sucks. I know, all too well.
I would rather you know this now, so you can use this to your advantage going forward.
Here’s the good news, though:
You can outwit your ego, by understanding that the resistance you are facing as you move toward the things that you want is a sign that you are on the right path.
Your ego is the most powerful opponent you will face in the pursuit of your business growth and personal evolution. Your ego would much rather you stick with the reality that you know (and don’t really want anymore) versus the future you want (but don’t know yet.)
And the biggest tool that the ego deploys to achieve its goal is fear. And the fear SEEMS real and scary.
This message to you today is a message from the other side of navigating my way again and again and again through the fear and false panic point I talk about in today’s training video.
If you want to achieve your potential, surpass your goals and leave your mark on this world, you simply must learn to do what it takes to be afraid and do it anyway.
There is gold on the other side for us bold hearts who are willing to bravely go through it, instead of looking for the “easy” and “painless” way.
Rewards beyond our wildest imaginings await.
I believe in you. More than you know,
P.S. It’s my intention that this message inspires you to be bolder and braver. Remember it’s a “false” panic line. Once you get through it, you realize there wasn’t ever anything to be afraid of. <3
You know the movie with Bill Murray? The one where the guy wakes up to the same day over and over again?
There’s actually a powerful process there for you to apply to your business.
One of the things that stops many business owners from growing their business is Self-doubt:
“What if I fail?”
“What if this is another thing that I don’t follow through to completion?”
“What if I’m not good enough?”
“What if I let others down, again?”
These are more common than you probably think.
Yes, you may have made mistakes in the past, we all do. (God knows I have!) But what if you permanently learned from your past experiences so you didn’t ever repeat them again, instead of letting any of these self-doubting thoughts stop you from taking big bold steps toward your future growth?
That’s the Groundhog Day process I’m teaching in this week’s training. It’s really, really powerful. Watch it now:
I use this process with my Team all of the time, every day. All of our clients at The Client Attraction Business School use it. (They say to each other, “Just GHD it.”) I use it with my kids, and it’s also a process my husband and I use at home.
If you woke up every day and had the opportunity to have a “do over,” what would you do differently?
You would do more of what worked and less of what didn’t, right? That’s what this process allows you to do. So when something doesn’t work, instead of succumbing to self-doubt…
Ask these questions instead:
What worked? Claim your success!
What didn’t work? Take responsibility and own the situation. Be willing to go deep.
What would you do differently? This is where the learning happens that you can apply going forward.
What non-negotiable systems, standards and procedures will you now put in place?
You see, mistakes aren’t the problem. Failures aren’t the problem. Past experience is not the problem. The problem is repeating the same pattern over and over and expecting different results.
Be willing to do what others are not willing to do, and follow this process that allows you to learn and grow from your experiences. Your results will soar because of this Groundhog Day process, just like hundreds of our clients experience.
How do you think you could use this GHD process going forward? Let me know in the comments!
P.S. Let this be something you DO and not something you KNOW. Implementation of this process is the pathway to your exponential growth. I’m here cheering you on!
If you want to grow your business to its next level, you have to fire yourself…
…from the day-to-day operations of your company, is what I mean.
You see, if you’re at a point in your business where you are making very good money (multiple six figures, maybe even seven figures, like our Leverage Track students) but are still doing a lot of the “doing,” you’re creating a scenario that is going to wear you out and not allow your business to grow.
(Believe me, this is all too common with our students who first enter our Leverage Track, and it was me for a lot of years too.)
In this week’s training, captured at our most recent Leverage Track meeting, I have some tough love for you and some good news too.
Watch it now (it’s only about 2.5 minutes – but wow, this concept has transformed so many of our business owners’ lives and it can change everything for you).
When we start a business, of course we do it all ourselves. We have to! Most of us bootstrap our way to success, which means we fund the growth of our business through sheer hustle and grit.
But there comes a time when we must stop this way of doing business and take a new tack.
This can be challenging on many levels, which is why I talk so much about the mindset of expansion and success, and how things must first change in your mind.
Listen, I know that it’s hard to let go of control. It’s hard to take on the commitment of paying a team. It’s hard to embrace structure and systems when it probably goes against the nature that made you an entrepreneur in the first place.
But there are so many rewards.
You get to step into your role as a leader and a visionary, so that you can create a system that is able to multiply and grow beyond your own efforts.
Once you make this shift the ONLY work that you do is the creation and execution of:
Notice a theme? Your role is to get out of the daily details and minutia and step into the big picture. Your role is to hire the people that will move the company forward – financially – through their efforts. Your role is to create a culture where everyone on the team is rowing in the same direction.
Hiring a team is what allows your business to move forward. Giving each team member the opportunity to be generative in their efforts, not only through their regular responsibilities, but through initiatives that grow the system of the business, allows the entire ecosystem to expand and grow.
And, by the way, it allows your revenues and profitability to soar.
Ready to take on your new role? I promise…you can do this.
Just fire yourself. 😉
Here for you,
P.S. As I shared in the video, this isn’t about hiring lots of people, throwing lots of money at your business and walking away – it’s about becoming the person you were born to be… Although it IS ok to go and sit on the beach too…sometimes 😉
