I am not going to lie, the true cost of showing up in business is at times rough as guts. You are consistently working through HUGE fucking blocks, and sometimes they hit hard. But the return is incredible.
When you are an extrovert, confident and finally believe in yourself, you can be penalised.
Not invited to parties, networking events or even on coffee dates because….you are too much. You don’t just want to have shallow, how the hell is the weather conversations. You want more than that….and that my friend is the true cost of showing up every day.
Feeling isolated in a busy world.
People not wanting to hang out because all you want to do is talk “business”, growth and not wanting to gossip.
The true cost of showing up in your business everyday is that people assume ALOT.
They assume you are too busy for them, that you have enough clients so you shouldn’t need promotion, self promotion, opportunities…Because you show up every day, you have that sorted yourself. Well bugger that. I am doing the work and there shouldn’t be one rule for people full of excuses and people getting shit done.
People are waiting for you to NOT be able to maintain the actions you take.
For you to put your hand up and say…Yup you were right. I couldn’t maintain the massive amounts of daily action.
The TRUE VALUE in showing up every day:
You are on the fore front of people’s minds and they stay in your sales funnel longer…Because you are creating thought provoking, energetic, authentic content. NOT to mention the fact that your energy is contagious.
People recommend you more often because you are in their faces, literally via social media. And because you make the path of how to work with you freaking clear….It is easy to refer. And you create real solutions with non greedy prices so people can repeatedly buy from you.
The seeds you planted and continually show up to nurture (because you WANT to and know that is what you are here to do), start to bloom so damn fast, that before you know it you have a bouquet that e’rybody wants to sniff…often in secret. Because they don’t want to be seen to be needing help.
At the end of the day girlfriend, the truth is you are a trail blazer, a truth speaker and damn fine business woman. And that comes with the ups, the downs and a sideways slap. The biggest growth and results come from the simple actions, consistency and the sales…Hmm yes you are remembering to sell right??? Because that is actually a HUGE…No wait it is THE biggest most essential action, cost and true value in your business. And I see way too many business women, showing up, dealing with the issues above and then not bringing the sales…aka cold hard cash. For a small business to survive this is the oxygen. Cut this off for too long and you do have brain damage…Like for real!
