Recently I had a student ask me a question about expanding her business. She worked with small groups in person and was approaching the point where her space was nearly full. We talked about what she could do to attract clients and grow and came up with all of these possible steps to get moving. She could:
- Get a bigger space
- Use someone else’s space
- Train an employee to run programs for her to deliver more classes
- Go virtual with a webinar
- Consider a secondary target audience, like corporations, etc.
What Are You Being Called to do?
If you have been thinking about an idea for a while, but you’re scared to do it, that’s one sign that you could be called to take this step. For example, I was scared to write my book and tell my whole story. But I also knew that once I did, I would feel fully self-expressed. This brings more joy to you and your work as well.
Inside, You Know How
Students sometimes tell me they don’t know how to take that next step or put things together. But I’ve been coaching for a long time and have found that usually, you do know what to do. The “not knowing” is simply a distraction that allows you to continue to procrastinate. It’s just an ego thing.
So you think you don’t know how to attract more clients or take that next step, but this is nonsense because if somebody threatened your life and said, “Do this within 24 hours,” I know you would figure it out and do it.
We all have things we deeply want to do to build our business and attract clients, but we’re not doing them because of a variety of reasons such as:
- Fear of criticism
- Fear of being exposed
- Fear of failure
- Fear of success
- Fear of feeling foolish
The truth is, whatever it is that you have this deep desire to do, YOU KNOW HOW to make it happen better than anyone else. Reach inside and let the answers come forward. Make it easy. Make it fun. Make it lucrative. You don’t need to put heavy energy into the process. Just remember, you already know the answers so let them surface and be brave enough to apply them.
Your Client Attraction Assignment
Whatever that big idea is rolling around in your head, pay attention to it! This might be your calling. Stop procrastinating and write down everything that comes to mind about how to make it a reality. When objections arise as to why this will never work, come up with another reason why it can work. Don’t let yourself off the hook so easily. Start thinking bigger to attract clients and grow!
