There is a fine balance between charging ahead and being in action and sitting on your butt and researching and asking yourself questions forever.
Believe me, this is one I know well!
I spent well over $100,000 (U.S.) buying courses, big ticket coaching programs, attending conferences, grabbing onto the latest and greatest software tool that would make my life “simple and easy” and a whole ‘nother bunch of nonsense.
Don’t get me wrong, I learned a bunch, including a whole bunch of what NOT to do! Which definitely has value, although my groaning credit cards and graying hair may not agree.
Every day I get questions from 1-on-1 clients and members of groups like…
Who knew that asking the wrong questions (like what software to use) could cost you so damned much money, time and effort and leave you tearing your hair out in frustration! Yes, those “wrong” questions need answers, eventually, after you get kick-a$$ clear on:
Why does answering these questions make you money and help you make a bigger impact in the world?
Because when you answer them, you can go directly to what is right FOR YOU, instead of running around getting stuff that doesn’t fit you and ends up costing you in ways you never imagined. And yes, THEN you can get the right tools and technology that help you achieve your goals. After 30 years of being in the techie consulting world, I know this one thing: technology should serve the business, NOT the other way ’round.
It’s like picking the right restaurant for your best health (or the craving you’re having…oh, did I say that!). When you know you’re a vegan and going gluten-free, you’re not going to go to that kick-ass steak restaurant down the street. Right?
You’re going to go to the restaurant that serves what you love to eat and although it may seem more expensive to someone else, you’ve realized that is how you feel the best.
The same is true of your business.
Been there. Done it. Have way too many t-shirts!
And in January 2014, The Universe delivered 2 interventions, less than 12 hours apart. Yup, they were interventions for sure and these two souls got in my face and helped me realize I was cheating myself, cheating you and cheating others that could use the gifts I bring to the world.
I knew they were both on track when I thought I would throw up, my Fear Gremlin was having a heyday, my stomach was rolling and I couldn’t stop crying and dancing around the house at the same time.
Holy shitske BatGirl. This is lifechanging stuff.
It wasn’t comfortable. Can’t say it was “fun” and boy oh boy, was it a gift beyond measure. Talk about life changing!
Then let’s get started…grab your complimentary Tame the BizBeasties and we’ll see if the time is right for us to work together.
If it is, I promise you this: you’ll save thousands and make more when you answer the right questions and define the next do-able step for your success.
In the meantime, Laugh Lots, Love More!
