The Myth of BALANCE for the Woman Entrepreneur creating a High-End Business and what it can teach you about your struggle getting clients to pay you $5K or more.
**<<Just sharing a story and a few tips to help you…stop making excuses and reach your goal faster – no strings attached!>>**
Let’s get to it…When I was in high school I started feeling really overwhelmed with all the honors classes, working part-time for 20+hrs a week, and my budding social life after years of being an outcast when I first came from Cuba.
Those were the three things that were constantly on my mind, and I didn’t know how to navigate the stress and make it all work together…
So much so that to keep myself sane, I made a resolution that no matter what, I was going to find balance. I could DO it all. I knew it. I just had to find the right combination.
Then one day, I was told in a clear voice that I was Sazzu, not Jennie (the name I was born with) and I decided to make my new name mean Balance, so that I would always remember the end goal. I was 16 at the time.
Many years later, after my 1st year in business and in my now SUBCONSCIOUS pursuit of Balance, I was working 80hr weeks on my business, with ONLY 2 (albeit high-end) clients and a very, VERYYYYYY unbalanced life.
Sometimes I would ask myself “how the hell did I get here?”, and the answer would come, quietly, “this is what you wanted”…it was just not HOW I wanted it.
I obviously did not stay there for long, and below I want to give you some ideas of how to move forward if this is your dilemma right now…because if you are wanting to create a High-End Business where you are selling YOURSELF, this will Always be the problem.
You can’t very well be selling your Lifestyle and Business if you are working non-stop and seeing no results. That is not in integrity…so I want to help you do what feels good, and get there quickly.
1. Understand that balance in the way that you’ve been sold it doesn’t really exist. It has nothing to do with having balance between all the things that you have going on in your life like I thought. It has everything to do with your decision and commitment…to having it all and to live your purpose full out!
2. And that doesn’t mean that you have to DO it all. So in fact, the truth of the matter is that it gets easier when you’re moving in the right direction because it’s a lot easier to make MORE money than less!
**This one comes with a little caveat! You DO have to put in the work at the beginning. There is no excuse for you not setting up a foundation for your specific business model that is proven and works to launch your high-end, high-touch programs successfully. However, it doesn’t have to take you longer than 4-6 weeks to do this!**
3. Eliminate the excuses. The excuses why it’s “so hard”. The excuses why you “have to slow down” and find more “balance” and any excuse in between that keeps you getting less results than you know you are capable of.
4. OH yea, and pick ONE, just one thing you KNOW you should be doing every day, and then do it.
When you are LIVING what you love, and your life is a reflection of your work in every way, that is YOUR balance.
Now go out there and get it done!
