What would happen if you made money a priority in your business AND your life? If you’re quick to think, “But it’s not about the money for me” then let me help you understand something critical to your building a successful business: if you’re not making money it means you’re not getting to help and serve enough people.
I’ve coached hundreds of people in my programs (and thousands via speaking and teleseminars) and one of the biggest challenges woman business owners face is spending more time worrying about money than in taking the right actions to generate more money.
So let me help you by sharing the MOST important actions you can take to keep from feeling at the mercy of money, with little control or influence over what you make, even though you may be marketing like crazy. By taking these simple steps every day you’ll quickly begin to see a difference in your bottom line…and in your confidence as a woman entrepreneur!
Priority Action #1: Focus FIRST on Income-Generating Activities
Women are biologically wired to want to organize and tidy things. As entrepreneurs, that can turn into a habit of starting each day by cleaning out your inbox, straightening your desk, and taking care of “quick” tasks. It may feel satisfying to check these things off your list, but they aren’t going to produce income for you.
I recommend starting each morning by taking action first on your income generating activities. And no, plugging in to social media doesn’t count! You’ll find that by focusing on income generating tasks early in your day, you’ll feel emotionally and financially on track, every day.
Priority Action #2: Use Systems to Create Income
Successful entrepreneurs take risks, try new ideas, and stretch themselves to bring the best of their gifts into the world. They don’t, however, do this in a random manner. For example: client lists are built strategically. Programs and products are created and launched based on a formula that generates and maximizes sales.
Money flows most easily through clear structures and systems. And systems streamline your work which means you can spend more time on serving your clients or doing the things you love the most.
Priority Action #3: Don’t Get Stuck In A “Dollars for Hours” Rut
When you’re first launching your business, seeing clients 1-on-1 is the perfect way to gain experience and build momentum. But sticking with this model will quickly leave you burned out and unable to break through into new income levels.
Instead, it’s crucial that you learn how to easily and quickly add new income streams to your business so that you’re leveraging your time, serving greater numbers of clients in less time and creating advantageous, new opportunities.
It’s Easier To Make More Money Than It Is To Make Less
By making these 3 actions a habit, you’ll quickly expand your income and your confidence, helping you to create the kind of stability and reliable income you want so you can happily enjoy — and grow — your business!
