What’s essential before your business can grow to the next level
I’m sure you’ve seen the headlines:
“5 Steps to Creating a Million-Dollar Business”
“How to Make a Million Dollars in 30 Days”
or how about
“How to Make a Million Dollars Online in 2 Minutes” (Yes, this is a YouTube video title!)
What comes to mind when you see those headlines? Are they true, or a bunch of hogwash?
What if I told you both would be correct?
Now before you hit the delete or back button, hear me out.
Ever since COVID-19 hit, I’ve been doing a lot of self-discovery work. I’ve read Vishen Lakhiani (founder of Mindvalley) books and taken his Be Extraordinary program, I attended a Mindset Retreat and have learned a lot about my personality type through Dressing Your Truth to name a few.
Through all of this deep dive work, I have received a lot of clarity and “aha” moments-especially with this whole concept of reaching multi-million-dollar success.
And just so you know, one of the features that my particular personality type has (Type 4 if you follow Carol Tuttle), is to share the knowledge I receive and believe in. It’s in my DNA, so I can’t help it!
Let’s get back to having a million-dollar business…
The good news: it is achievable.
The disappointing news: It requires either a helluva lot of hard work and luck, or a lot of soul searching and mindset shifts.
Yes. I know. I said the “mindset” word.
It’s been around for a long time.
Preached by many coaches, Law of Attraction gurus and so on.
Are you open to hearing more on why this term keeps showing up when talking about success? Great, keep reading.
Let me ask you in the context of your business:
• Have you ever said to yourself you can’t afford something your business could really need and benefit from?
• Have you ever considered taking a program, getting more education, or signing up for a high-level mastermind and immediately shut down the idea once you knew the cost?
• How about when you first started your business? Did you try to do everything yourself in efforts to save money and/or not have to spend any money to get started?
• Have you ever hit a roadblock in your business that caused you to want to shut down all together or go back to doing something that was more familiar?
The odds are you have experienced this more than once. Probably many times. Heck, I know I do! Just the other day I saw a promotion for a high-end business-business event I thought would be perfect to attend… until I saw the price tag that is.
