“I can’t build my business because the economy is so terrible and no one has any money to spend on what I have to offer!” Woe is me…. (yeah, I’ve heard myself say that a time or two!)
Visit a restaurant on a Wednesday night – you’ll have to wait to get a seat.
Go to a movie in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday – you’ll park in the BACK of the parking lot built for 5,000 cars.
Go to a local minor or major league baseball game – SOLD OUT and 75% of the people there are buying $ 6.00 cokes and $ 8 hot dogs.
And, guess what – I’ve done all three in the past week which is why I know those statements are true.
This is one of the biggest excuses entrepreneurs use, so they don’t have to take responsibility for their inability to build a business – and they end up applying for a job somewhere else because making money for someone else is “secure”.
Well, if jobs are so secure, then why have I been on pins and needles for the past year wondering if I’ll have my online teaching job once the Spring 2012 semester is over? Don’t we all think teaching in the Public School System is…..Stable?
An entrepreneur’s inability isn’t because they aren’t smart enough or have some earth shattering product or service – it’s simply because they don’t understand how to market themselves, set and achieve goals or get out of their comfort zones and overcome their fears. And, they don’t value themselves enough.
* Would you like to position yourself so that you never feel like you HAVE “to sell” your service or product?
* Did you know that when you are really clear about exactly how you can help someone, they are relieved that their problem will soon be solved or that you will help them reach their goal, and they can’t wait to get started?
Are you ready to stop letting excuses STUNT your cash flow and YOUR SUCCESS! If you answered yes, say “I”!
YOU CAN MAKE MONEY – EVEN in THIS Economy!
How do I know, because I do. My clients do. And loads of other coaches and entrepreneurs do, too! One of my clients started a baby-sitting service business in October of 2011, she has over 100 babysitters and over 150 families! She also had a FULL TIME JOB while building her business. She just worked her last day for someone else last Friday! She is making MONEY!
The Question that remains…How can you make money in this economy?
The answer is to change your story and your state, set and achieve goals, organize your thoughts and our time, get out of your comfort zone and GET INTO ACTION!
People buy what they want and they figure out ways to pay for what they want, regardless of the economy, especially if they want it bad enough, and if they believe their lives will be significantly enhanced by getting it.
* They will splurge on dessert if the thought of home-made key lime pie tonight is more compelling than cab fare tomorrow. (They’ll burn the extra calories walking it off ;-)
* They will spend hundreds to thousands of dollars for once-in-a-lifetime concerts or opening day for their favorite sports team. (What if I never get to see them again?)
* They will even sell their car to get coaching when they know it will get them the lifetime results they are looking for. (Once I learn how to make money coaching, I can buy an even better car!)
When you position yourself to be what they are looking for, you never have to sell your services.
They know what they want, and when they get that you are it, they are ready, willing and able to invest in your products services, so they can get it.
Are you committed to:
Change Your State
Write a New Story
Set and Achieve Goals
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Organize your Thoughts and your Time
Get Into Action
If this is all I need to learn and do to live the life I want to live, then I’m in, full throttle!
