I’m going to say what I’m really thinking, and I hope you don’t take it the wrong way.
Within the last few weeks I’ve had several ladies tell me they are waiting for their website to get designed before “getting going” with their businesses.
Here’s the problem… these same ladies tell me they want to be making money. They want clients.
I hate to break it to you, but a fancy website DOES NOT MATTER when you want to start getting clients.
Don’t get me wrong, I can totally understand the urge to put your best foot forward visually. In fact, I did 2 photoshoots and paid a web designer within my first 6 months of business (and I highly recommend all the service providers I used, so this statement has nothing to do with them).
But here’s the thing, when I look back at those purchases I can see that they were just expensive, shiny, pretty distractions I put between me and doing the real work I needed to do to get my biz off the ground. I got myself several thousand dollars in the hole and had no clients to show for it.
An example on the flipside - one of my colleagues has sold over $60,000 in coaching services since April, and she has NO WEBSITE AT ALL. How did she do it? In her case, she built an email list via a summit, and sold to it.
I don’t know about you, but I’d feel much better dropping several thousand on a website and photos if I knew I had $60,000 coming in vs going into debt for it.
The reason I’m sharing this with you is to lift the veil on what’s really important when it comes to making money in your biz.
To make money in your biz you must CONNECT & ENGAGE with your audience.
The way you do that is through your WORDS - written and spoken.
Are you putting obstacles in your own path? Are you avoiding the “hard” work in favor of easier tasks that give you a false sense of progress?
Pouring your heart and soul into writing an email or a post that gets crickets or facing rejection on a sales call isn’t easy. I’ve gotten THIRTY NOs in a row before. THIRTY.
But guess what? You learn from it. You tweak. You post again or have another call, and you get closer and closer until all the sudden you finally get that YES.
One of my favorite Marie Forleo quotes says it best:
“Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.”
Stop picking the low hanging fruit… and start doing the real work that will get you the success you crave.
Once I started do this… I got my first client and went on to make multiple 5-figures in 8 months, triple what I made in the preceding 8 months, all while I was still in corporate America….
I’m hosting a FREE training this Monday, September 18, at 12pm PST/3pm EST to teach you the exact 4 things I tweaked to go from no clients (and several thousand in debt) to serving over 30 different people in 8 months.
