Today’s post is all about you.
I always write with the goal of helping you build an incredible, profitable business that you can be proud of. This month I’m excited because I’m going to be writing my posts on the feedback you give me (today!) on where you’re stuck, what you need, and how I can help, so I can focus on giving you what you need most.
Specifically, I’m going to want to know where you and your business are right now and what you believe is holding you back from achieving the stunning success you’ve set out to create.
As you know, there are so many things in business that can go wrong and tons of stuff we solopreneurs need to know in order to make it online. Often times the hardest part is figuring out what we’re doing wrong, what steps we need to take next, and how to know if we’re doing things the right way.
You may think you’re focusing on all the right things to build your business, but you may actually be missing a BIG piece of the puzzle. In this month’s posts, I want to help you see what you’re not seeing, so you can course correct and finally build the business you’ve been dreaming of.
This is all leading up to something that has the power to result in you making amazing leaps forward in your business (but it will only come together properly if you join the conversation!).
Now, let’s get started!
What Stands Between You and Your Success
If there’s one thing that’s probably true for all of us, it’s that running an online business is way harder than we ever thought it would be. When that beginner’s buzz wears off, you’re left with a very real and demanding business that you need to keep working at to ensure it’s growing and profitable.
Even if you’ve taken courses, read books, scoured the web for tips, or tried every manifesting tip out there, you probably still don’t feel like you totally know exactly how to keep moving your business forward week after week, year after year.
You may even be spending so much time trying to learn new skills and troubleshoot endless problems that you’re not actually able to build your business in the first place.
There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck in that cycle!
You know deep down that if you could just figure out the “missing piece,” everything else in your business would click into place and you’d see big-time growth.
You’d get more clients, make more money, and spend more time helping people (you know, the parts of your business you love!).
Unfortunately, we all know that finding that missing piece is easier said than done.
How do you really know what you’re doing wrong? How do you know what you should be doing instead? There’s so much information out there; it’s impossible to take it all in and connect the dots in a really useful way.
There’s a Better Way
If you’re feeling a bit lost, unsure, deflated, or exasperated about where your business is right now, you’re not alone.
When things get hard, it’s normal to second-guess yourself, your plans, your goals, and your abilities. You probably also assume you’re doing something (or many things!) completely wrong.
The natural thing, of course, is to check out what’s working for everyone else. However, as I’ve mentioned before, comparing yourself to others and blindly following trends are not great business strategies.
You could, for example, end up writing website copy and offers that fail to speak to your target market, which means you won’t be able to connect and the offers won’t sell. Or you might scatter your energy around so much that you finish each day feeling frustrated that you didn’t accomplish anything tangible.
In cobbling together bits and pieces of what others are doing for their businesses, you’ll never have a clear map to help you get where you want your business to go.
What if I told you that the reason you’re running into problems isn’t because you’re doing things wrong? What if I told you there’s another reason it’s not working and an easier way to solve this mystery?
The First Easy Step to Solving Your Problem
This is usually where I give you some strategies for getting back on track, but this week I know that one-size-fits-most advice is not going to cut it.
Don’t get me wrong: I have A LOT to say about how to grow your businesses and achieve the kind of success you’ve only dreamed of! But to help you with where you are right now, I need your help.
Where are you struggling most?
Take a minute right now to think about what’s really tripping you up the most in your business.
Maybe you’re struggling with creating an offer people will actually buy, or maybe you’ve changed your offers and opt-ins again and again (and again!) without getting any real traction.
Perhaps you know your website copy isn’t as outstanding as it could be, but – despite reading 101 blog posts on copywriting and knowing theoretically how to fix it – you just can’t seem to make it really speak to your target client.
Or maybe you’re struggling with overwhelm, tired of spinning your wheels, or just plain lost when it comes to knowing the next step forward or how to take that step successfully.
Or it could be something else entirely. (There truly are so many stumbling blocks we as business owners need to get past on the road to success.)
Whatever is holding you back, I would love to help you find the answer you need.
