I was just on the sofa watching an Abraham-Hicks video on Youtube with my 14-year-old daughter.
We were snuggling and talking about the fact that sometimes, it seems as though no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get the results you want. You have good intentions about getting results, but it just seems outside of your reach. Right??
And when that happens, most people feel defeated, like something’s wrong with them, like they’ll never be able to figure it out, like they’re ready to give up. (And by the way, this happens to very successful people too, not only those who are “just starting out!” It happens at all levels!)
It happened this week. On Wednesday, I hosted ten super smart, heart-centered business owners here in Paris for a day-long strategy session full of hot seats. They came prepared with awesome questions for me. In fact…they basically ALL had the same question, and now that I think about it, no matter where I am in the world, I realize that most people I speak to about business want this:
“Fabienne, what can I do to finally break through to the next level of income in my business? Why does it seem so hard to get past where I am currently and into the next level? What do I need to do to make this business even more of a success?”
I always answer with the same thing, as I do in today’s video. And it works every time. Would you like to know what it is? It’s pretty simple actually. Watch this:
See? Unlike people who work for someone else, or a corporation, YOU, my dear friend, are in complete control of how much you make.
Yes, it’s true. The next level of income for you is directly correlated to how much more you market. Period.
(Not always what people want to hear.) ;)
But I want you to reframe your idea of marketing more than you are now.
Marketing (done right) is the very simple act of connecting heart-to-heart with people, giving them value and sharing what you do with them in a way that has them wanting more. So that the right people, those who are meant to work with you, see and feel that it’s time now to work together…
The thing is, if you want more clients and to make more money, you will simply want to market just a little bit more.
Want to be inspired as to how to do this, even if you’re in an industry that doesn’t typically market?
In this week’s teaching video I share a story of two clients I absolutely adore and am working with now who both happen to be architects. And they’re both making really good money now, even though they’re both kind of shy and not really the “market-y” type. Believe me, if they can market authentically, you can too. I reveal what they’re doing to market in today’s video.
What they have realized is that the more marketing you’re willing to do (marketing that is authentic, integrous and loving, of course), the more business comes to you, and the more money you make.
That’s where the breakthrough is. It’s just a formula. The more you market authentically, the more you raise your income.
If they can do it, so can you.
So let’s turn up the volume on your marketing, OK? We are all here cheering you on.
I believe in you.
P.S. Maybe you’re not sure how to market. Um. I find that to be the case a lot of the time. You have the willingness, but not the know-how. Maybe we should chat. If you’re lacking the knowledge of marketing and you want to get step-by-step direction on how to do it successfully, yet authentically, and you want to not be alone doing it, then we’d love to find out more about you and see if we can help.
Perhaps it’s time that you stopped doing it all on your own and got some well-deserved guidance. I made this heartfelt video for you to invite you to have a chat about what it could look like if you didn’t have to do it alone anymore. To have a plan to follow, and a tribe of friends to do it with. And listen, when we chat and if we don’t believe we can help you, we’ll be happy to refer you to someone else who can. So let’s book a time for us to talk. :)
P.P.S. Go ahead and share this quote:
Growing a business and achieving a breakthrough is conditional to the beliefs of the business owner. I love that you talk about this– the business owner’s willingness to market. Obviously knowing about their target market is important, but their willingness to take the risk to market their business and move their prospects through the marketing continuum. Thanks for the video.
You’re absolutely right! Their willingness to take the risk is so important. Thanks for commenting :)
So, So true. Marketing is the key to exponential growth. I tell this to my clients all of the time. Thanks a bunch, Fabienne.
Frank, it’s amazing how this is overlooked so often in businesses! Hope you’re well! ♥
Fabienne. Thank you for your wisdom through these weekly tips. I adore them. They are really eye-opening to me. Always be blessed, Laura
Laura, I’m so glad they’ve been helpful for you. Much love! ♥
