Entrepreneur Business Coaching.
It is in the Doing That Your Being Becomes
I must share something that shifted and expanded my business in a huge manner. I believe many entrepreneurs who, though working consistently, might not always be working as if on a deadline. It’s amazing what happens when you are about to be in front of over 100 people.
Putting that kind of fun pressure on yourself regularly, kicks it up a notch.
This is an “I” post. It’s a chapter from my personal growth as an entrepreneur story. In sharing it, my intent is that you might see facets of yourself and be inspired to ramp it up too!
I made the decision a few weeks ago to move away from some of the edges I dance near in certain circumstances and Just Do It!
I became a Sponsor of a very special upcoming Live Event for Entrepreneurs in San Diego.
My thinking was totally around exposure, relationship building, leads and sales, in making this decision
Here’s the reality. All those things will be happening. But what I didn’t expect was the amazing things that would occur in the preparation for the event.
Things I’ve been slowly working on, have BECOME. I’ve wanted a new head shot for a year, but when I learned my photo would be printed in the hand out program guide booklet, I went and got it done!
My funnels are set up and work, but there are missing and fuzzy pieces that I’ve been meaning to clarify. Now. Done!! I’ve had a hard product in brain creation mode for awhile. It’s now in concrete production mode and should be on my sponsor table in a month!
I’ve moved slowly forward in full tilt development of a Western Slope Colorado workshop series, partially because I did not have all the peripherals, like handouts and signs and banners. I now have it all!
Interestingly I don’t consider myself a procrastinator. I work diligently and in a focused manner 90% of the time. Yet there are always those hanging pieces that just don’t get done because though important, they are not the highest priority.
I was one of those kids in high school and college that everyone hated, because I wrote the final draft of my papers days or even weeks before they were due. I rarely do anything last minute if I can help it.
So I’ve got this deadline now, for something I invested a decent amount of money into – and the deadline literally turned on my internal production machine!
I’m just loving this collateral benefit! It gives me a greater understanding of the power filling my calendar with live speaking, sponsoring and presentation event!
In my work coaching entrepreneurs in their business, I often do for my clients what this live event preparation has done for me. I set deadlines and follow through schedules. Luckily for them (and me) I’m not a babysitter, thus they must step up and into their commitment to themselves. But I do provide the framework when necessary to facilitate movement from point A to point B to point C.
I suggest strongly that you take a look at your entrepreneur business and see where you have created structure, timelines and deadlines. And then I challenge you to step it up a notch by committing to an live event that requires preparation beyond your day to day normal business activities. Like I have experienced, I believe that when you do so, there will occur a jump in your personal growth as an entrepreneur, regardless of where you are now on your business journey.
Share in the comments below, an event experience you have or will commit to. Then come back to this post and let me know about your unfolding as you prepare!
