I’m in this interesting place in my business… maybe you can relate?
I’m growing at a fast rate, but I still have big goals and a good amount of ‘work’ to be doing each day/week. I really try to take days off... but I LOVE my work and it can be tough.
But about every 4 weeks, and yes, it’s totally a ‘moon cycle thing’ (TMI)… I get really tired. Like, I don’t want to do anything but sit around and read articles on the internet and watch a movie or two.
Problem is, I’ve started this freight train of a business rolling down the track… and if I stop, it stops. Well, kind of. It used to- but not anymore!
Yesterday I was on a group coaching call with Danielle LaPorte as the guest coach. If you haven’t heard of this NY Times Bestselling author, you should look her up. Most recently, she wrote a book called “White Hot Truth,” and she started out 8 years ago as a business coach. So much of what she said on yesterday’s call was amazing. But one thing stuck out at me…
“You can win by being the most consistent. But consistency isn’t glamorous.”
So many of us start businesses with the hope, dream and wish of it being easy, making us tons of money and then being able to retire at 45. (Well, maybe that’s just me… I bet you have goals though, right?)
What if you knew you could get to all of those goals just by being consistent? Consistently learning, consistency posting, consistently responding to customers, consistently keeping expenses low… you see where I’m going with this yeah?
Looking back at the past 7 years, I know the times when I haven’t been consistent with my intention and action is when I’ve seen my income go down. Only recently have I learned that I need protection for myself and my business to allow me to savor in the slow days I really need. I also have learned that the most valuable thing is setting up systems for when I need a break.
Currently I can slow down, because I have:
- Great Facebook Live videos!
- Holly scheduling out content on the FB biz page & group!
- Holly answering client emails that don’t need my attention!
- Automated emails and systems on the back end that just run!
Have you thought about how you can put automation and help into place for when you need to slow down?
TO TRY: Right now, write down at least 3 ways you can get help or schedule automation into your business. Set the intention that you will have these completed over the next 2-4 months.
My deepest desire is for you to have a successful boutique that supports your passion and life. In the work that I do with clients, I not only lift them up to fly, but I also help them figure out what needs adjusting in their business plan (that's the "consulting" part of what I do)!
I've just opened the doors to a new way to have me coach you each month- the Boutique Elite Membership. I launched the Membership last year as a training portal- full of trainings, meditations and quarterly group coaching calls. But frankly, seeing how many amazing woman joined last year, combined with my desire to interact with you more, I decided for 2018 to expand it and make the membership even more valuable.
