Oh hello sunshine! I am coming to you today with two questions that you should be asking yourself if you want to grow your business and grow yourself.
So this year I’m focusing on being visible – that is one of my goals and the first three months of the year have been completely insane with client work and with sickness. My husband and my daughter both had influenza A (oh goody) and it was nowhere near fabulous.
Anyway, let's talk about what is going on in my business, what I want to do this year and what I want to accomplish throughout the year. And the two questions that I, instead of asking how am I going to get it done, I’m asking these two questions to move forward through the year to really think about what I need to do and what needs to be going on in myself in order for me to create the business and the freedom that I want.
What Two Questions To Ask?
My goal for this year is to make $250,000 in business revenue, that’s triple my business revenue from this past year and that is a BIG and scary number to me. But I can do it.
Anyway, so the first question that I’m going to ask in order to hit my revenue goals, hit my time freedom goals. I want to make two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year but I don’t want to spend sixty or seventy hours a week doing it.
Last year I worked too much and I took on clients that weren’t ideal and to make matters worse, I didn’t put up boundaries and it just wasn’t pretty. I didn’t get to do as much as I wanted to do with my family, as much as I wanted to do develop personally. So I had to look hard at what I wanted my life to look like, so my first question that I’m asking is,
“In order for me to make this revenue, within my own boundaries and within the time frame – who do I need to become?”
It's a freaken hard question, but it is one that I needed to ask myself and I really needed to think about it.
- I need to become a more productive person
- I need to become a person that delegates & outsource more
- I need to become a consistent person
- I need to become a person who really sticks to my boundaries
The boundaries are big for me! I’ll put boundaries in place, but then I have my favorite clients and I’m like, “Ooh, open the boundaries just a teensy bit.” And then I’m like, wait a minute, they don’t bend their boundaries for me, they do what works for them. I have to do the same thing no matter how much I love them because when I am happy, when I am rocking it, when I get enough sleep and when I’m not answering emails at eight o’ clock at night, then I am feeling within my zone of genius. I’m able to rock their conversion rates, I’m able to basically rock myself.
I going to be moving into a lot more of the funnel building and helping bring people out through their message over the next year. And so I really need to start those boundaries now as I start building out my group coaching programs and my passive income so that I’m not being stretched too thin. Because I’ve already started to feel that this year.
So that’s your first question, “Who do you need to become when you are wanting to hit a certain level in your business?” When you’re wanting to hit a certain goal in your life or whatever, just who do you need to become, it’s not what do I need to do. What qualities do you, what actions do you need to take or who are you in terms of how you’re going to be moving in your business forward.
And then, the second question that I’m asking is basically,
“What do I need to embody?”
So similar to the first one but it’s also a lot different at the same time. For example, I have to embody patience. I have to embody unconditional love and that’s if I mess up, if a client forgets to give something, if a client’s irritated I still have to show that unconditional love because that’s a part of my business. I have to embody presence.
Just being fully present in what I’m doing when I’ m doing it and not trying to do five six seven eight different things at once. I need to embody that so that I can get to the next level. Some of my core desired feelings are ease and feeling cozy, feeling connected. So those are some things that I’m going to have to start embody in myself and those are some of the things that I’m going to have to be giving out as well.
So when people come in contact with me, I want them to feel connected with me. So how can I embody that to make them feel connected with me? How can I make them feel comfortable, or at home or cozy as I like to say. So those are things that I need to do in order for me to have that and to evoke that on others as well.
So those are the two questions that I’m asking myself daily. I have my goals and my core desired feelings over here and it’s something that I need to think about every day. And this isn’t just in business, like, this is going to be a huge work in progress because my husband and my family they get to see the best of me and they get to see the worst of me, especially on those not so fabulous days. So I need to think about how I can embody that, these feelings and really give that out to them as well so they feel comfortable enough to do the same thing.
So that is what is going on for me. Those are the two questions that you should be asking. Are you asking them? Or what questions are you asking? Are you asking different questions?
