Are you doing what I used to do? Are you going from seminar to seminar, book to book (to book)? Soaking up information hoping it will help you grow your business?
Maybe you’re thinking, “What a weirdo! I mean, this guy writes this stuff but has an image with a link right there in plain sight inviting me to a web class!”
As you’ll soon discover, I’m a huge advocate for seminars and business education. In fact, every time I got competent help, my business growth has shot forward like a rocket. So what’s my beef, then?
THIS is my beef…
What I see a LOT of entrepreneurs doing is perpetually going from training to training, hoping that the next piece of business education will be the THE thing that gets them moving. They ignore the resources already in front of them, or their past resources. And I’m not just laying this down because programs can be expensive (like $250 to $25,000). I say the same things about $20 books and free videos on YouTube.
More important than money
More important than money is your TIME invested. And more important than time, is your SPIRIT. I mean, how long can someone last in business going from thing to thing before they tire out and say something like, “Well, I guess I’m just not cut out for business”?
If I may oversimplify just a bit, people need only three things in order to succeed in business:
- They need to know WHAT to do.
- They need to know HOW to do it.
- And they need to actually be DOING.
The What and the How are found everywhere, and rather inexpensive these days. So it’s not a lack of information that stalls the budding entrepreneur. What really tends to slow people down is the lack of DOING. As a guy whose been in business for a bit, I’d suggest,
- Figuring out what you want your business to look like.
- Figure out what is in the way… What bigger gaps keep you from reaching your goal.
- See the gap that’s closest to you? That’s your next step. Make that your focus.
When to hire help…
If you need help with that step, hire some help with that NEXT STEP. Then move on to the next gap, the next thing that’s keeping you from where you want to be (and like I said, focus on what’s going to get you to money fastest).
Your business will thank you.
