A spiritual teacher once told me that every business goes through cycles, just like nature.
I share this lesson in today’s new video, because it really changed my life.
Sometimes you’ll be up, and sometimes, there will be dips. I’m here to remind you that it’s normal (and even beneficial) to have setbacks in your business, if you look at it from a spiritual perspective.
Like everything in life, there will be seasons in business when you’re planting, seasons when you’re harvesting, and seasons when you’re hibernating and getting things ready for the next big surge.
I just want you to know that this is normal, at least when you can recognize it not as a tragedy but as a big opportunity for growth (it helps to get coached at that time, so you don’t forget this).
If you’ve experienced drought in your business at one point or another, watch today’s video for some inspiration on how to respond strategically… Here you go:
There are actually good things about minor setbacks in your business. It doesn’t have to mean there’s anything wrong with you or that you shouldn’t be in business or that you’ve made massive mistakes.
No, sometimes it just means that this is a time to go within and really assess the situation. To get ready for the next big level.
It’s an opportunity for divine redirection, and a chance to give yourself some space to make some inspired decisions.
A time to ask yourself…
“Am I really going in the right direction?
Am I working with the right type of client?
Is my marketing strategy the right one?
Is my business model the right one?”
This is a time of thinking and reflection.
So, if you are at a point in your business where you’re experiencing some setbacks…
…just keep breathing. No small children are being harmed. Nobody is bleeding.
It could be time to start thinking about what you can change, or do differently.
(We can absolutely help you get clarity, and we would be happy to talk to you about that. Click here to set up a time to chat.)
Then, once you’ve gotten clarity and decided to do things differently, I want you to borrow something that my husband Derek and I have been saying for years in our business.
When things have been confusing, we give each other words of encouragement, and ultimately our commitment level is to do “whatever it takes.”
We even do it with a silly hashtag motion with our hands (and now our Team and the members of the Boldheart Business program do it too:
(Check out this week’s video to see me gesturing this.)
Maybe it’s finishing a project you started, but it’s taking forever to finish. #whateverittakes
Or maybe it’s overcoming some fear about going to the next level. #whateverittakes
Perhaps, for you, it’s just bringing in some cash, raising your rates, or changing your business model, and it seems like a big thing. #whateverittakes
Put all of your focus on that one thing and allow yourself to go beyond your level of effort.
I’m not asking you to become a ‘human doing’ for the rest of your life, but about getting that one thing fixed in your business, the one that will change everything.
Maybe it’s finally getting help in growing your business. Do #whateverittakes.
By the way, we’d be happy to help. Reach out here to chat for free so we can explore working together.
It has always worked for me and I believe it will help you too.
Sending so much love,
P.S. If you find yourself in a season in your business where you feel stuck and don’t know what the best thing to do is, we can help.
In the Boldheart Business program, we put people who make at least 2K a month on the path that will make them 10K a month consistently, and then on the one that will get them to multiple 6, and even 7 figures a year. (Yes, that could be you. All it takes is a new recipe to follow, rather than winging it.)
We do that by intimately knowing the timing of business cycles and understanding how to make the most out of moments that seem like setbacks.
If that sounds like something that would help you, we should definitely talk. Sooner rather than later. We can explore if the season is right for working together.
