We all want to go into online businesses because it will give us flexibility, time to spend with family but that can't be where we start but can be where you end. If you really want all those things, you need learn to dig deep into what your customers really want and put their needs first. Only by factoring your customers into your system can you turn your dream or passion into a real business that’ll make you money.
If you have been inspired and dreaming of trading in your monotonous 9-5’s and free yourself of the corporate chains in pursuit of an idealistic lifestyle of sipping fresh coconut water whilst productively tapping away on our laptop on a Thai Island, you might be questioning how attainable the laptop lifestyle is and is it really as glamorous and carefree as it sounds?
I still remember what it was like...
Heading to a corporate job every day that was slowly draining the life out of me. I knew I had to get out, but my corporate salary was very comfortable. Would I be able to earn enough in my own business to meet or exceed my current salary?
Perhaps that’s where you are right now. And if it is, let me just say, I understand. I understand what it feels like to know you were created for something more than punching a time card. I know the desire to travel all too well, to want to spend more time with your loved ones and to have an income that allows you to be generous while doing so. I understand the frustration of feeling like I’ll never be able to build my business while working my “day job” in the corporate world – there are only so many hours in the day.
A business coach works with you to develop the skills you already have. They work to bring out the “best” of you.
Business Coaching is a relationship. It’s a place where you go for guidance, support, and challenge so you can figure out what’s in the way of creating the business you want.
A business coach is somebody who helps you move from where you are to where you want to be, and does so by solely focusing on your goals.
You’ll never really know what you’re capable of until there’s someone to push you outside your comfort zone. Just ask any professional athlete.
Are you living the dream, or are you living a hectic nightmare?
Unfortunately, work-life balance appears to be the bane of almost every entrepreneur.
But being overworked isn't healthy for anyone: It can lead to a number of health problems, most notably stress-induced issues like insomnia and heart disease.
Struggling with achieving work-life balance that idyllic, elusive goal of working manageable hours (9 to 5, anyone?), having free time to spend with loved ones and on personally fulfilling activities, and, on top of all that, getting enough sleep, healthy meals and exercise to maintain a well-rounded life.
I hate labels, I hate people putting themselves in "boxes" and it saddens me when individuals stay stuck in that mindset because of the thoughts and beliefs they feed themselves constantly. I know hate is a strong word but I have decided I do feel very strongly about this!
Take a moment to think about all of those things you say to yourself. Do any of these resonate with you? "I am lazy and never get what I need to do done," " I will never have a successful business" "I will never get the clients I desire" or "I will never really quit my 9-5." These thought patterns stay on repeat like a really bad song and we actually believe them so much so, that it becomes our reality. We become more lazy, we feel more tired and we start doing less to build our business and attract the clients we desire so we stay stuck in jobs we dislike for a lot longer than necessary.
