Let me tell you a secret about last night…
Ever wanted to stick pins in your eyes rather than do that “thing”
At 6.30pm last night I was in my usual scruffs, under a blankey on the sofa scrolling through Insta stories….
I was trying to do one of two things.
The first was to find any reasonable excuse not to attend an in-person ladies only networking evening in Wakefield filled with my absolute dream clients and a fabulous guest speaker.
The second (knowing that I ran out of excuses last month when I failed to go to the last one!) was to summon the “oomph” to get up, get dressed (properly – in something other than leggings & a hoodie), slap a bit of lippy on and drive out into the dark evening.
Let me tell you it took all the persuasion I had to summon that oomph and part of it was a good old talking to.
I know that when I work with my clients it’s often important to help them step out of their comfort zones. I’ll encourage, cajole or lovingly badger them to take the action they need in order to build and grow their businesses to achieve their dreams.
And last night it was time to take a dose of my own medicine. To walk my walk and talk my talk.
You know what?
The room was full of lovely ladies. Our guest speaker was entertaining, informative and had genuine warmth.
And, and there was an even bigger bonus for me – I actually got to see one of my lovely clients and some other ladies I’ve not seen “in real life” for nearly two years.
So I want to share with you this really important message – even if it’s just to remind you, encourage you or support you.
STOP hiding under your blankey, get out into that world where the people who will benefit from your thing can see it, hear about it and buy it.
- How will anyone know about what you do if you don’t tell them – they won’t!
- How will people connect with you and hear your voice if you don’t engage with them – they won’t!
- How will you grow your business and have the freedom you desire in your life if you stay invisible – you won’t!
You see, you cannot sell what can’t be seen. Right?
It’s impossible for people to buy from you if they don’t know what you’re selling or where they can get their hands on it.
And it’s unlikely people will buy from you if they don’t know who you are, what you’re about, what your values and beliefs are.
You know the old saying “people buy what they know, like and trust”.
So start making more connections that align you to your dream clients.
I am my own dream client!
Let’s be very clear about this, I’m not immune to procrastination, pissing about, shuffling papers, going to the post office or ironing tea towels – just to avoid “that thing”.
So I know exactly how you feel, and even better, I know how to help you get past that, fast!
