If you run a business, you’ve probably been told that you need to set goals.
And if you’re like so many business owners that I know, the word “goal” is cringe-worthy.
It sounds masculine and it feels like hustle, two things that you thought you escaped when you opened your own business.
Thinking distraction is the reason you aren’t more successful in business is a mistake I see entrepreneurs make all the time.
It’s easy to think that when you repeatedly find yourself dropping what you’re doing to take care of that needy friend, the aging parent or cleaning your house instead of marketing your services.
Have you ever seen someone take a lie detector test on a movie?
That person's thoughts produce an electrical current that can be measured by a machine, and so do your emotions.
Every emotion you feel has its own vibration, just like every key inside of a piano does.
Thanks to the work of Dr. David Hawkins, we know the vibrations of the most typical emotions humans experience.
When I first decided to open a coaching business in 2017, I was recovering from a major health crisis and was still trying to figure it all out. I was obsessed with my health. I was reading and learning and experimenting. I was changing my diet, my lifestyle and my overall approach to life. I also had been witnessing the toxic cultures of the organizations I worked in that promoted overworking and burnout and I was deeply passionate about helping others to live a better life, even if they had jobs that were super demanding.
Setting goals for your business, breaking them down and being super focused about how you spend your time each day is essential for creating a business with a consistent stream of clients.
“But it’s so hard to do!”
I know, I know...I hear you.
Business planning isn’t nearly as fun as helping clients, but it’s required if you're looking to create financial freedom for yourself.
You started your business with excitement, enthusiasm and passion for helping others. You knew you had the skills to make a difference in someone else's life. Then, it became time to get visible, make proposals, and sell your services. Filled with self-doubt, you became paralyzed.
