[00:01:19] Kellee Wynne: Well, hello. Hello. I'm Kellee Wynn, artist, author, mentor, fiercely independent mother and wife, and the founder of a multiple six figure creative business. And I love my life, but I've been where you're at. I was slogging away at this art business thing for more than a decade. Once I finally connected with my true calling, unlock the magic of marketing and built a system that could scale, while I realize I can make an impact and make a substantial income, I'm finally running a business that I love and it makes all the.
Difference in the world. My biggest dream is to help you do the same. Let this podcast be the catalyst to your biggest success. You already have it in you because you are made remarkable.
I have a podcast episode for you today that I'm going to review some ideas with you that have been on my mind a lot all around. What's stopping us from making money in our business? There's a lot, a lot, a lot of reasons. I could go on and on, but I'm narrowing it down to five things that I feel are like the juiciest parts of what's giving us these roadblocks from bringing in the kind of income that we really want.
And they're not all just Woo woo stuff. This is real tactical information that might give you some aha moments and where are these ideas coming from? Well, it's not just my own experience. Here's the thing. Stumbling blocks that are coming up over and over again, a lot of spinning wheels and loneliness in this career field that you've chosen of running your own business online.
I know entrepreneurship is not actually that easy when you feel like you're doing it in a bubble and you don't have feedback and you're not quite sure what the next step is to make. I'm talking to creative business owners who have great ideas, are very talented, and they want to be able to get their business up and roaring.
And yet they just keep hitting this block where they're not making the kind of income that they want. I really feel a very strong calling to shift this for you to change the direction of your business.
I know without a doubt that it's possible. I've done it. I've helped others do it. And so nothing, Makes me happier than being able to see it all click for you and the pieces come together and you start figuring out how to actually make your business more profitable, completely aligned with your vision and values driven.
Because if we're not running a business with integrity and from our heart and soul, doing it in a way that feels really good. Good to us, then why would we want to be running a business at all? It's a lot of work. I'm not going to deny it, but in order to reduce the amount of work, it is reduced the amount of time you're spinning your wheels.
I wanted to bring this information to you today, and that is. The five stumbling blocks that might be holding you back from making a good, solid, healthy income in your business. Are you ready? Let's get to it with number one, clarity. Here's the thing. A lot of us, we're just throwing spaghetti at the wall.
And we're hoping something sticks. So we try a bunch of different things and honestly, just like with learning how to create art or learning how to write music or write a book, you're going to try a lot of things until you figure out what your specialty is, what your Gift is in all honesty, we all have this zone of genius and it's good to be trying a lot of things.
But when you get to that point where you're actually starting to make offers, build your business and put yourself out into this world, it's going to make it significantly harder. If you're trying all the things for all the people all the time. And so. That's where I'd like to bring in the idea of the power of one.
And I've heard this taught many times from many different business coaches and advocates throughout the years. And one of the most important things that I've learned is this idea that we create one business model for one customer and use one channel. or method to get that message out there. And we do that consistently until we've figured out how to plug all of the leaky holes in the bucket, build the bridge all the way across to the island, whichever way you want to describe it.
But we take that time to really focus in on the one thing that is our thing for a long enough period of time that we see success. In fact, they say, if you want to make a million dollars, this is what you need to do. You need to stick with one thing. Repeat that same thing and do it until you've got it perfected.
You will get yourself to a million dollars But if you're like most creatives you're trying all the things Because all the things light you up and it's hard to let go of anything so you might try selling your art and you might like since your art and you might want to teach your art and you're gonna Do a workshop and next thing, you know, you're gonna do some coaching and all that I am the perfect epitome of this person who tries all the things and doesn't stay focused long enough.
Cause you know, I've done a lot of work in the past in all different kinds of fields, everything from curating shows to licensing my art to coaching. And teaching online and teaching workshops, and I've loved the experience of having all of those different components guide me to know where my strength is.
And right now, I know that my strength is mostly residing in showing up. And inspiring others to action. That's what I love to do. And it's taking me a long time to get to this point where I'm ready to make the offer with the remarkable league and with made remarkable and the whole business model that I'm on right now.
But I do believe that when I focused in on just selling courses for the last few years, that's one reason that my business went from barely making any money to making multiple, Six figures in my business. And I'm really proud of that. In fact, I'm so excited to see that I'm almost at the point where I've reached in the last five years, a million dollars in revenue, and I'm ready to quadruple that.
I want to be doing that every single year and I see no reason why not, but using the power of one where I've consolidated my message and I've consolidated the offer and I've consolidated who my target customer is. It will make a huge difference. That clarity. will help you in so many ways. One, your messaging is going to become completely clear.
Instead of rotating through your Rolodex of different offers, talking about everything and confusing your customer, you're going to have a clear message. As exactly what it is that you're working towards, whether it's a suite of courses, whether it's a membership, it's an offer where you go in and do consulting for corporations so that you can work on say team building events.
You're helping artists build their dream studio. You're working on a YouTube channel that suddenly has millions of viewers, whichever your path is that you're going to choose, focusing on that clearly. And knowing who it is that you're talking to, for example, if your goal is to help women who are busy with motherhood and their work job, and you just want to give them a nice outlet, then talk to that person, create the product exactly for that person.
Because if you have a product for that, and yet over here, you're talking about how you can incorporate play with your children, then they're not the same person. So getting. Clarity is one of the best things that you're going to be able to do in your business in order to grow and thrive and make money.
That means sorry to say, for those of you who've started a business, it's time to shut some of your offers down. It's time to stop doing all the things and trying to satisfy all All the customers, because you're not for everybody. You're for somebody in particular. And when you hone in on that, your special gifts and how you can help that person and then deliver the most amazing experience using one channel to deliver it.
Whether it's a podcast or Instagram or YouTube, whatever it is that you're showing up to deliver that message of your remarkableness, well, suddenly you're going to see a huge shift in the amount of money that you can make. So that's my number one, C, clarity. My second one is going to go hand in hand with number one.
Number two is your capacity. Because here's the thing, when you're doing all the things. You will easily exhaust yourself and you will exhaust your customer. Well knows what's coming next. You're not quite sure what projects you've got going on. You're trying to launch your first online shop at the same time that you're marketing a collaborative event as you're trying to get people to come to your workshop.
And next thing you know, you're like, I can't do all the things all the time. I've got emails to answer. I've got social media to post to, and I still haven't even finished artwork from a year ago. And I might be speaking from experience because I tend to do this a lot. I take on way more than I actually have capacity for because we're dreamers.
We are hopeful that the ideas we have, we're going to have time enough to do them all. But here's my advice to you. First and foremost, create a parking lot list for yourself, a journal, a Google document. Notes on your phone, however you want. And every time you have a new idea, write it down and save it for later.
Those good ideas are not going to waste. There's no expiration in a good idea. But we have to pick and choose what it is that we have capacity to do. And then I want to introduce to you a second concept when it comes to our capacity. And that's called, what I call, an acronym of DADA, D A D A. And that means you're going to delete, Automate, delegate, and absorb the work so that you have less of it to do and it's more streamlined.
Delete the things you don't need. That means cutting out any of the extra activities that you think, Oh, I can throw this in. I have time to do one more course. I have time to do one more art show. I have time to write one more article. I can show up for Whatever it is that you think that you have time for, you know you have about half that much time and capacity.
I know I do, and I struggle with this all the time, but it is so true. We don't delete some things off of our list that we think that we can do, but we know we're gonna be crunched up against time and stressed out and probably crying in our coffee in the morning like, Huh. I've had those moments. And then I have to go through my calendar and say, what's necessary?
What's essential? I need to delete the rest. But there are certain things that are essential to running your business. Good customer service, communication, your systems, and however that is that you collect information and disseminate out your newsletters and whatever it is that you're doing, you have your systems that need to stay on top of.
What we can do is automate some of that. We know that if. Somebody. Sends you regular emails, asking the same questions. You can have an auto response that gives that answer for you. You know, that if you have a system within your program, where a customer's journey along the way, they hit a certain point, you can have an automation go out, respond to them.
These are all things that software does remarkably well for us and helping us have our systems and our automations in place so that we're doing less work. That in and of itself seems daunting to many people because it takes work up front to get it down. How you do something, what your system is for it, writing it all out in a project management board, something like Trello or Asana or even Google Docs, that takes time.
To figure out what those systems and automations are, but once they're done, everything goes so much faster. So this is something that I highly recommend you put at the top of your to do list as you're building your business so that you don't have to go back in time and figure it all out and rework it.
So delete. Automate, the next D is for delegate. And I'm going to tell you right now, you think that you can do it all. You think that it costs too much money to hire help, but it's costing you so much more money by not hiring help. And here's my logic behind that. Your zone of genius, your gifts, your talent are best used doing the high level work, the hundred dollar, the thousand dollar projects, not the 20.
An hour work like admin, answering phones, answering emails, responding to every message in your dm. Those are things that are easy to hire out and will help you multiply your time on the most essential work and you'll find that you have greater capacity. Greater energy and greater enthusiasm for what you do by having somebody else do some of the tasks that maybe you're good at, or maybe you're not good at, but that, you know, somebody else can do and that's why the automations and the systems are so important because it makes it really easy to turn that over to somebody else.
When I hired. Real solid help. Someone to help me in my community. Somebody to help me with my social media. Someone to help me answer emails. Everything changed in my business. My capacity grew to be able to take on more important projects like the podcast or coaching or other ways that I am able to show up now that generate greater revenue than the time that it takes me to sit and answer emails.
So this is something that For those of you who are in business and you're stuck and you're like, I don't have enough time to do it all. And I'm not making enough money. It seems counter intuitive. However, hiring some help, even if it's just 5, 10 hours a month to help you get through some of this and then you can add on from there.
It's going to revolutionize how you're doing business and make you feel so much better. Highly recommend it. And there are a lot of places you can look online and I'll look for some resources to help you put that on your must do list. And I would say, make sure you're hiring someone qualified to do the job, not just your sister or your friends or your kids.
Although I have hired my kids to help me edit videos and I have hired friends to help me do community work, but I have found that people who are actually designed for the job to begin with are the ones that are going to do it most efficiently and have your back when anything goes wrong. So the next letter in this acronym is ABSORB, A for absorb, and I've added this one on because I have this idea that we can combine the work we do and absorb it into a job.
Each other. So the idea behind absorb is that we take projects and we combine them together. So that means if I'm making a real for Instagram, I can repurpose that and use it on YouTube, Pinterest, Tick Tock, whatever. Wherever I can put, put short form video, if I'm writing a really juicy newsletter, I can also repurpose that into a blog.
If I know that I need to get online and have a discussion with somebody about something, but other people could hear it too, I invite more people in to join me, to have a group conversation, to have a team meeting. If I'm taking a trip somewhere and I'm doing a workshop, what else can I do at the same time?
Does that mean I schedule a few podcast interviews so that I can consolidate what I'm doing to certain time points and in certain ways where the work is getting done more efficiently? So see where you have things that are duplicating and replicating and things that you can use to repurpose and see where you can absorb.
And then maybe expand from there so that you're not redoing the work over and over again. And finally, the other thing that I wanted to talk about with capacity is to really think about who you are as a person. Introvert, extrovert, high energy, low energy, suffering from chronic illness. Do you have small children in the house?
Are you trying to manage your aging parents, health, you know, all these different aspects. Really come into play when we're trying to decide how we build our business. Our capacity is everything and working seven, eight hours, 10 hours. Eight days a week might not be right for you because running a business can be quite challenging and take a lot of work, but if you design it right, you can be working more minimal hours and put more of your energy into the high important tasks using the data system and really see your business flourish without having to add on more hours.
But it's getting that clarity and getting that capacity under control. That's going to make a huge difference in. What you're able to accomplish and how you're able to make more money in your creative business. Yes, more money in your creative business as an entrepreneur, cutting out some of the things that you're planning on doing and cutting back and doing what's essential is going to make all the difference in the world.
All right, now I'm going to move on to number three, which is consistency. And I see this problem come up a lot. Over and over again, it kind of goes hand in hand with the idea of power of one, which is when you're all over the place with your messaging, how you show up, when you show up, no one even really knows who they're talking to.
In all honesty, I see two different types of consistency problems. I'm going to first talk to you about the squirrel. Which that's me. I'm the squirrel. I'm like, Oh, look at this. And Oh, I wanted to tell you about this and I'm all over the place and directing you in way too many places. And my messaging isn't always clear.
I've tried to work on that by dividing my business into two different branches, made remarkable and color crush creative so that there can be clarity. But I've only been able to do that now that I have a team of people helping me build the business. Otherwise I don't have the energy for all of that.
But if you look on my Kellee Wynn studios, it's been a little bit of a hot mess Instagram account lately because I'm not quite sure who I'm talking to as I'm in transition. So I can tell you right from personal experience, that squirrel syndrome, that mixed messages and giving a bit of an overwhelm of what you're working on now with your customers.
There can be a bit much and that is why people say having a niche and sticking with it. The power of one, the clarity of message makes a huge difference because it's exhausting to you. It's exhausting to your customer to always be, Hey, look at this next thing. And that inconsistency leaves them to believe that you're not going to be good at any one thing that you're offering.
So I say hone in on your specialty and be consistent in that message. And maybe every quarter. Switch it up rather than every week or every day. Like some of us do stick with that consistency in your messaging and you're showing up and how you show up is going to make a big difference. Now on the flip side of that, where I see other people having problems, it's ghosting.
You have high energy for a few weeks or a few months, and then suddenly you're burnt out, you're tapped out, and you're not quite sure where to go next, and you just disappear all together. And I have had friends in the past, art friends in the past, who will consistently show up, make headway, and then burn out and hide under their covers for a couple of months, not to be seen again.
And so then it's like, just as you're getting that momentum going, You've burnt out again, and you're hiding from your audience, and I understand why that can happen. Well, your capacity has been exceeded. You're really close to burnout and you need to rest. But if it's happening over and over again for multiple different reasons, then what that means is that The way you show up in line, the way you're showing up online and in your business is exceeding what you're actually capable of doing.
So let's dial it back. It will be so much better to show up two or three times a week and leave one simple little post. Then doing all the things, the posts, the stories, the lives, the videos, the tech talks and the reels and everything all the time you're there. And then suddenly you fall off the face of the planet.
It will be so much better. The consistency in minimal work on a long term basis is more valuable than showing up and doing it. In a flashbang sort of mode and then disappearing so we've got 2 different versions there the ghosting and I say, find a nice happy medium pick a pathway that you know that you can succeed at that.
You can show up regularly that you say, If it's just every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and that's it, that's great. That's a lot better than not showing up at all or showing up without clear direction. And that consistency, the thing that you do over and over again, the showing up and sending the newsletter once a week or once a month is so much better than blasting your audience six months down the road when you have an offer and having them go, who is this again?
I'm not quite sure. Did I even sign up for this newsletter? I don't know. And then next thing you know, you've lost your audience. So set a plan for yourself that works with your rhythms and your business model and do it consistently. All right, I'm moving on to number four in my list here. If you've noticed, they all start with the letter C.
I love it when there's a consistency and even my message here and I'm talking to you about confidence. It might be a duh, for most of you, like of course, without confidence, how do you build a business? But it shows up in so many different ways and can bite us in the butt in so many different ways.
Everything from guilt for making money, Or an embarrassment to the people that, you know, that you might feel that they're judging you to just a confidence that whether or not, you know, your work is good enough, or the offer that you have is something that people want, but our mindset is going to make all the difference in the world.
Um, whether or not we can show up and talk about the thing that we're passionate when we become passionate, when we become confident enough to show up, make the offer out of a pure, genuine place of pleasure to serve that resonance will make it so it's nearly impossible for people to say no to you. And.
You'll see a shift in yourself and in your customer when you're showing up as your true authentic self. And I know you've heard this before. It's no surprise. Authenticity has probably been the biggest buzzword over the last 3 or 4 years. But I am not joking when I say Showing up as all of you, warts and all, however it is, whoever it is, whatever you believe in, whatever you're passionate about, letting your quirky side show is actually going to make a huge difference in attracting your client, not repelling them.
Being more of you is actually giving permission to others to be more of themselves, to feel safe with you and to be aligned with you and see themselves in the, in the work that you're creating. And so. At this point, when you've got those blocks, who am I to show up online and make this ask who am I to sell my artwork?
Who am I to even show my face on camera? Oh, my goodness, that would be horrible. Who am I to make money as an artist? I'm doing something that I love. Why should I get paid for what I love? Isn't that ruining the whole meaning of art? Do you see like these spinning thoughts are going to go through your head over and over again?
And Every one of us is going to be tripped up on something else, and as soon as you get to a level where you think you're past it, It's gonna happen again. That imposter syndrome, it's so real and raw, we all go through it, and every time you level up, again, I go back to that Gay Hendricks book of The Big Leap, every time you go to level up, it's a new fear factor, a new space that you've never been, a new realm.
You would not be a human being before. If you didn't have that imposter syndrome that was like nagging at the back of your head, who am I? Why am I doing this? How is it? How am I going to get past this? Until you've created that space for yourself to feel confident again in what you're doing. And be ready for the next level.
It's just the way it is. And so I challenge you to work on your mindset to pick up books and listen to podcasts that enrich and nurture your soul so that you can feel more confident in who you are and believe in yourself. More. I even say, don't hesitate to find a good friend or a partner to have conversations with, therapist if you need one.
And there are so many great books to help you get through this, but there are even programs that will make a difference in how you think about your business, your money, and your worthiness as you Go into this venture. If you think of money as a dirty thing, as an evil thing, it's going to be very hard for you to build a business.
And I'm going to say right off the bat, how can you build a business if you believe that money is evil? Because a business is only going to thrive when you make an income. If you were to set out to be a doctor, would you say, Oh no, it's wrong for me to take money for my services? No, you've worked hard for that, and you've worked hard for what you're doing here as well.
And so over time, I'd like to bring in this concept of reframing wealth for artists back into the podcast more often because it may be one of the biggest hitches. That disbelief that it's possible, that disbelief that you're worthy of doing it, that disbelief that it's needed and genuine, the business, the offering, the, the thing that you're creating, it's of great worth.
And so working on your mindset, your confidence, and the way that you show up in the world is going to make a difference on whether you make the offer. and put it out there and ask for the sale. It changes everything. And I can't speak of it enough, but at this point I'm going to move on to number five.
It's your circle of influence. Who we spend our time with will make a difference in Who we become and how we show up in this world. And if you are around other people with limiting beliefs, it's going to limit your possibilities as well. Now we can't always control that because we've made our choice in partnership.
We don't have control over our parents or siblings. We have friends that may be lifelong friends, but if the voices that are coming from them are negative or self doubt or. Making you question who you are, that's going to be a huge challenge for you as you try to overcome the hurdles you already face in building your business.
How in the world are you supposed to show up with confidence if you're being dragged down? Now, let's say that the people around you in your circle that you spend your time with day to day are loving and supporting and do not give you a hard time for fulfilling your dream. That's beautiful. That's amazing.
But do they even get it? That's the next question. And so this is a time where I have found that when I surround myself with other people who are high achievers in their life, Trying to accomplish the kinds of things that I'm trying to accomplish. It's lifted me up in ways that I can't explain. It gets that energy and the juices flowing when you can have a conversation with somebody else who understands what it's like to be an entrepreneur, to have big dreams, to go for it, and to help you process the things that you're going through.
I've built friendships through people I've met on. Instagram, I've built friendships through people I've done collaborations with, I've joined masterminds and coaching groups, and every time I do this, I realize that I am up leveling to my next great thing. I am getting the kind of support and feedback I need so that I can actually have more confidence in myself.
That I can get the answers. I can get other eyes on my work and give me feedback about what I'm doing. And, and when you surround yourself by other positive, inspirational, ambitious people, you're going to see a huge shift happen in the way that you show up for your business. You know, we don't have our water cooler like other people do at their job.
We usually are doing this in a very solitary way, making our art, spending our hours on the computer, spending our hours on our little teeny phones, writing our messages and putting our captions on. And next thing you know, you haven't talked to a person in a whole day. And this is where it's important for you to get involved in community and find your circle of influence, people who are going to lift you up, other artists, other entrepreneurs and other creatives.
And the good thing is the way the world works now with everything online, it's easy to find without even having to go and find them in your community where you live. They're all online. There are so many people just like you running a creative business who need the kind of support that you need at the same time.
And you could be that support for them and they can be that support for you. So there you have my five C's of stumbling blocks that are potentially keeping you from making money. And I'm going to throw in a bonus today because this one keeps coming up, even for me. And I see it happening, especially when I'm sitting in coaching groups and we're talking about the things that we're planning and why people, when people come and they say, I'm not making the kind of income that I want.
And there's one thing that I can see over and over again, and it kind of is tied to each and every one of the five C's that I just gave you. And that's now money versus legacy money. So yes, we're going to throw that dirty word back into the conversation again. Actually, it's a beautiful word because it's just an exchange of energy.
So once you've wrapped your mind around that and you start, you know, Creating that bigger vision for where you want to go, you are getting an alignment, you have clarity, you're creating a space and a business that works with your capacity, you're consistent, you're confident, you have your circle of friends and influence, you're making all these changes, but there's one thing that seems to trip people up and that's now money.
Uh, I get it. We have bills to pay. There's an artist that I know that's been interested in working with me for a couple of years now. And she's somebody that I've admired for a decade. I've bought her paintings. I've watched her work. She's made an entire living off of her paintings and selling her paintings.
And by living, I say enough to support her. But is it enough to thrive? Is it enough to be able to take that next step and really feel secure in her future? Give her a break now and then? No, because I see all the time, she's like, I have to just keep painting and keep painting and keep selling these in order to survive.
And I'm like, but why not come and join me? And I will show you a way that you might have more Expansion in your business and she's like, I'm just too busy right now. I have all these deadlines and I've seen this happen before for other artists. Oh, the galleries asked me to paint these specific paintings.
So they've put their own creative desires on hold to paint these few paintings. It's going to make them a few dollars and not the big collection that's going to go on with a big, huge splash. Nope. They put the small project first instead of the legacy. that they can create out of creating something more sustaining and more amazing.
So the idea behind this is that when we take on these small projects, the things that we know that we can get fast, Income, few thousand dollars right now, what we're actually doing is putting on hold our pathway to making six, seven, eight figures. And I know this because I've done it myself. In fact, I've done it just recently.
And I want to tell you a decision I made is actually holding me back from where I want to go. See, you know, that I've been wanting to show up for you, do the coaching, do the courses, run the masterminds. And yet it's taking me a couple of years. And this might be a confidence thing. This might be a big leap problem that I'm hitting my maximum comfort zone and I need to break through it.
But I did it again just this fall. So what I did was I offered at the last minute in December, Deck of Dreams 365. Now, if you've been following me for a while, you know about this project and I love this project. It's so much fun, but it's also holding me back from being able to work on Made Remarkable. I chose to do it because at the end of the year, I'm like in kind of a panic mode that says if I don't have enough cash, I'm not going to be able to pay my staff and I know taxes are due and I need to put money in my 401k before a certain point in order for it to be on the taxes for next year.
And also there's Christmas. And so my mind says. in panic mode, in, in lack mode, in what can I do right now mode. Well, everyone seemed to like this project, so why don't we make this a whole year long thing and we'll put it out there at a very reasonable and affordable price so that Everybody can participate.
Well, it was a huge success. I am not shaking a stick at it. And anyone else who had had 800 people sign up for a course in a matter of 2 months would be going, wow, that's a huge success. And I want that success for you. But I've also done that before and making the. Tens of thousands now is actually holding me back from making the hundreds of thousands or millions that I intend to make this year through my programs and through the systems and processes I have built in for Color Crush Creative, including the Virtual Arts Summit.
I missed the bigger picture. I missed the legacy for the now. money for the project that was right in front of me. Now, believe me, I know so many of you do this. Sometimes we have to because we need to put food on the table and we have to be able to pay the bills. But I'm looking back now and saying, what if I just believed in myself enough, knowing that my program's good?
I have the experience, I have the customers that can give the recommendation from their experience like Kat Raines and Drew Steinbrecher. I know that my system, my blueprint for building a business from the ground up and getting that messaging and clarity just right will make all the difference in building a beautiful, remarkable business.
Profitable business, if I just believe in that and know it in my gut and come from that place of abundance, then I could have put that project on hold and gone for the legacy program that I have been dreaming about for years now, as you can see, I'm still moving forward, but I've had hitches. along the way in the last three months that have held me back from going all in.
But if I go back to the power of one, Which I was talking about at the beginning of this podcast. If I go back to the idea of getting super laser focused on who I want to serve and how I want to serve them. I'm making an amazing program and communicating it clearly. I have no doubt that I will be able to impact millions of people instead of just the Hundreds that I have an opportunity to work with now.
And that's my dream. I want to be able to change the way you think the way you run your business to see it's possible and put those pieces to together coming from the core of who you are and map it out and live out loud. Live your big audacious dreams. There's nothing I want more than to be able to help you do that.
And so, that is my advice to you is to think about the bigger picture, the legacy versus the now money. And it will make a huge difference in the risk and the chances that you take on yourself and what you're capable of doing. So, put away those things that are exhausting you and eating up your time, the things that are distracting you from the bigger goal.
Delete Automate, delegate, absorb, be consistent, find your mindset, find your circle of influence, and get laser clear focused, and I have no doubt That it's going to shift everything in your business so that you start making more money. I love these subjects so much that coming up in the next few months, I'm going to dive deeper into each and every one of them and give you some more clear advice on how to actually implement it into your business.
right now, whether you're new at it, or you've been doing this for ages and see if that can't just shift the way things work. For those of you who are ready, who have a business, and maybe you're the one who's spinning your wheels and looking for your own circle to help support you in your journey so that you're not so alone anymore.
