Keeping Myself A Secret & Waiting For The Phone To Ring
When I first started my practice I remember â??wishingâ? it would all just manifest;
that clients would magically find me, fall in love with my program,
that Iâ??d be acknowledged as an expert and build a thriving practice.
After all, I had secret deal with the universeâ?¦ I was meant to do this work so how could I NOT succeed?
Wake up call.
Youâ??ve got to take action to build your practice. The question is, which actions should you take and in what order?
a practice can be overwhelming, thereâ??s a lot of details and most of us
are marketing blindly (focusing on tactics rather than strategies), or
waiting for it all to be â??perfectâ? before playing BIG.
Blind marketing + paralyzing perfectionism = Zero clients, zero money, depression, disappointment, embarrassment and burnout.
may mean you have to go back to the job you hate, or that youâ??ll never
live into your purpose. These were some of the exact fears that lit a
fire under my ass to learn everything I could about marketing.
I discovered in this process is that I LOVE marketing! As a holistic
nutritionist I had distanced myself from itâ?¦ selling was icky. Iâ??d poke
it with a stick once in awhile, but I didnâ??t want to be associated with
Then I realized marketing is all about psychology, building relationships, understanding how other people think and what motivates them to action. I started applying these principles to connect on an intimate, human, friend level with my clients.
The result: 0-70 clients, a wait-list, and a six figure income in my first year.
Suddenly marketing became very sexy.
Success turns me on.
Connecting on an intimate human level turns me on.
Making money turns me on.
These things get me excited, creative, empowered, ALIVE.
But itâ??s not just the end result. Itâ??s the processâ?¦
engaging with clients, unleashing creativity, innovating, realizing
what makes YOU unique, and knowing with confidence that you can get RESULTS (rather than guessing what our clients want, crossing our fingers and desperately hoping someone signs up.)
2009 I joined forces with the awesome Carey Peters
(http://www.holisticmba.com) and in just 18 months, weâ??ve generated a
half a million dollar business working just 4 days a weekâ?¦ all with a
newborn who was born in February, 2010!
is because I continue to invest in myself and my business â?? honing my
craft and systematizing the RIGHT way so I can enjoy working 1 day a
week or 5 days a week (my choosing) from anywhere in the world.
How am I able to do this?
Hereâ??s the dealâ?¦ I made a decision to stop wasting time. Yes, I like
to hang out on the couch sometimes, AND I also know how to quickly
focus, and take the right actions in the right order to produce results.
No more dilly-dallying, making excuses, or comparing and despairing.
Itâ??s all about clarity of purpose. When you are really clear on what you want the how-toâ??s come quickly and easily.
Open up to the possibility of what your practice could be if someone revealed to you all the resources and support
you ALREADY HAVE sitting right in front of you. (Sadly most people
never experience the light shining on their own resourcesâ?¦ the
consequence is that they end up perpetually chasing the rainbow!)
We all need a mentor. Choose someone who shines that light on you and
holds you as not only as capable but sees a BIGGER vision for you than
you even allow yourself to imagine.
Does this sound like your ideal practice?
- I want to work from home or anywhere else I choose.
- I want to build a business model that will allow me lots of free time.
- I want to spend more time with my family.
- I want to travel whenever I want.
- I want to help LOTS of people, do work that is meaningful, and grow through this process.
- I want to be able to make as much money as a doctor.
- I want to be able to make money whether Iâ??m actually working or not, automated income.
- I want and need to start making money now.
Now itâ??s your turn.
Make order out of your marketing chaos.
All you need is a genuine desire and the commitment to succeed.
Iâ??ll help with the rest.
Expand your mind, expand your confidence, expand your practice.
Your next stepâ?¦
