I spend a LOT of time talking to people who are either
- already making it online, or
- are making it, but not quite at the level they’d been hoping for, or
- are still hoping to make it.
Either way, there’s one thing most have in common: too much shoving your talents underwater, and not enough celebrating what you’re really good at and passionate about! I’m not saying that because you’re passionate about underwater basket weaving, you should create a business around that very topic. Instead what I’m saying is that you and focus on the business building activities you’re really, really good at: You see, so far, EVERY single person I’ve met, either in person or ‘virtually’, I am 100% convinced, they absolutely, positively ‘have it’ – they have enough horsepower to achieve their goals …. if only those horses were pulling in the same direction! And in far too many cases they’re not! And more often than not, those horses are galloping all over the place, simply because it all ‘makes sense … intellectually’: you ‘should’ build a list, have an evergreen business, have a sales-funnel, diversify traffic, do follow-up marketing, involve your audience with social media, and so on, and on, and on. These are all
business building activities. But,
- they all require different skills and talents, and
- if you try to do them all at once, you’re basically screwed, er, “information overloaded”.
You see, some people are really, really good at systematizing a business. Others love the whole creative side, and they’re in flow when they’re writing copy that really connects with an audience. Others again find their sweet-spot in selling … face-to-face (shock horror for many others) So, I guess the bad news is: if you pick up any ‘ready-made’ training, it’s unlikely to be aligned with your real strengths, with your skills, talents and your passion. The good news is: if you’re willing to step out (or up) a little, you can quickly and easily find your flow in many of the areas that appear to be unappealing. So, for today, let’s focus on the “different skills and talents”: the idea here is to go with your gut-instinct and find out where you’re in flow, and where you’re definitely not. Followed by a final question, which, well, will make sense when you get there;-) NOTE: you MUST complete all 5 questions, otherwise you’re NOT subscribed to the notification list for the FB group!
