Why is it that some entrepreneurs make it look so easy to have a successful business? What’s their secret?
Well there is no secret, it’s just knowing that its okay to ask for help!
However, sometimes you may well feel that you need to try a million things and waste a lot of time and money (like I did!), before you scratch your head and ask yourself aaaaaaaaaRGH, there has to blooming be an easier way??!!
Well I am here to tell you, you can only fail if you stop trying. I have experienced my own epic failures – the last one cost me £80K and that’s when I knew something had to change!! And although I had to go back to the drawing board, Luckily I didn’t let it get in the way of my BIG Goal of having my own business.
My Life Changed, when I came across the concept of hiring a Business Coach!! Why didn’t someone tell me this before?! And so I did – I hired the best coaches and mentors, who taught me the shortcuts to having a successful business, which is what I now teach my clients! ☺
And I can tell you it really does get easer, once you have mastered a few key strategies.
Without having the fundamental in place, you surely will be spinning your wheels, working round the clock and still having little to show for it.
Again it’s all about working Smarter NOT harder. Once you have a formula that works for you, it’s just a matter of rinsing and repeating.
What I have learnt is that there are key factors in making and having a successful business. And without these in place, you are just going to feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and eventually give up, because you will have convinced yourself business is not for you and you are not destined to be successful! Hmm…. sound familiar?
Darling, I don’t want you to give up on your dreams, and especially when there is always a solution, its just knowing where to find it…
OK so here are 5 Femme Entrepreneur Coaching Tips for Finding your Groove & Making Amazing Money:
1) Knowing Your Big WHY? – Why did you want to go into business in the first place? And this really has to be a BIG enough Why? as it will keep you Going, Motivated and Inspired, when you feel like giving up!
This has to fuel your passion and desire to do what ever it takes to make it happen, no matter what!!
2) Then hire a Blooming Business Coach or Mentor! – You don’t have to do it all on your own.
OMG this for me, was the single most important and best decision I ever made regarding my business, otherwise I probably would still be in my corporate job wasting my life away, staring at spread sheets all day! ☺
Simply put – a great coach will help you get from A to B much faster and you will get quicker results, because they have already made all the mistakes you are probably making, and will now know the shortcuts to creating a successful business!
TIP: Hire a coach who’s style you resonate with. There are many coaches and mentors out there to choose from, but in the end it’s all about who’s style you resonate with, because the underlying messages and strategies maybe the same, however, its the delivery of the message that will be different according to each ones style.
If you are not sure and want to ‘try’ them out before hiring them, then sign up to their newsletter which will give you great insight as to their business style and expertise – it’s the method I used to help me decide who I wanted to invest with on a more personal level to help me jump start my business.
3) Getting Clear on your Niche – Wanting to help the world and his wife, in the fear that you will be losing out on potential income if you dont, is really not the best recipe to a successful business.
It doesn’t give structure to your business or message, and you may well be turning away your ideal client, who maybe confused as to who you actually serve.
So you really do need to get clear on WHAT it is that you do? , WHO you want to help? and then, HOW you will go about helping them?

4) Let go of the ‘Perfection’ Thing – you will always lose out if you wait for everything to be perfect in your business before it even sees the light of day..
Honestly, I know how you feel about this, as I am a total perfectionist too, but there is a fine line between trying to be perfect and having an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder about your business! ☺
Just get yourself out there and then tweak as you go along! Even the Multi Million Dollar Entrepreneur will tell you that letting go of the perfection syndrome is sooo important (Its one of the biggest lessons I learned) as its so counterproductive, and will keep you in analysis paralysis mode for ever, which will cost you potential clients and therefore potential income!
So just: Decide, Take action & Tweak as you go along!
5) The 11th hour Rule – ALL entrepreneurs struggle at some point – and so will you Darling. But its OK to stumble and fall.
However, the key is to keep going no matter what, as everything seems to come together (even if its not perfect) at the last minute or the 11th hour! 🙂
And I assure you when you keep plugging away, the breakthrough will happen and when it does, you will be doing the secret ‘Happy Dance’ we all do ☺ and you will feel proud and glad you stuck it out..
Honestly it’s the best feeling, as you pass each hurdle, you will be thinking to yourself why the blooming heck was I worried?
I am a big believer in the 11th Hour Rule, and it works for me every time, in that no matter what I am up against, it generally works out. It just does somehow..
Just Remember – The Universe ALWAYS wants you too succeed! It’s always the darkest before the dawn.. Just keep going no matter what and you WILL overcome your struggles and challenges along the way, as you are unconditionally loved, supported and guide by the Universe and its army of helpers ☺ even though it may not feel like it at time..
And its only with hindsight, that you will see the lesson.. ☺
