|Those statements above are pretty close to direct quotes that I’ve heard from professionals and clients.
I get it. I’ve been there.
However, I quickly realized that even being recognized as a thought leader in my field did not guarantee my financial success, professional satisfaction, personal happiness, or a life of abundance.
Until I realized that I had to run my business like a business, I was going nowhere and losing my mind on the journey.
The IRS, the FCC, and your creditors do not give a rip that you are the best “whatever” in the world. If you aren’t business savvy, you will fail.
Over more than 20 years as an entrepreneur, I’ve learned and developed business practices that have helped me grow several successful businesses and have kept me out of financial and legal difficulties.
PRINCIPLE: You and I both know that you don’t know what you don’t know.
Do you have a strong, strategic foundation for running your business like a business?
Test yourself on the following 12 Foundational Business Strategies for Abundance to see if there are business strategies you didn’t know you didn’t know.
1. Strategic Foundation for Entrepreneurial/Business/Professional Abundance Do you have a solid, strategic foundation in place to properly define, set up, start, execute, grow, and scale a sustainable entrepreneurial venture and/or professional objective? Have you felt lost, frustrated, or immobilized because you simply didn’t know where to start or what to do?
2. Brilliance Zone Have you discovered and defined your area of brilliance? Do you know how to share your zone of brilliance with the world? Do you know what’s most important in making your brilliance profitable?
3. Business Model Do you have a Business Model (which is not the same as a business plan)? Do you have a detailed written model for how to define, create, and sell your products to the world in a way that will give you lasting abundance and growth?
4. Economic Model Do you have a written Economic Model? Do your numbers add up to abundance? Have you created a plan for measurable success or are you wasting time and hoping you make ends meet?
5. Legal Components Do you have in place legal strategies for protecting yourself, your company, and your hard work by mitigating risk? Have you thought through and planned for all the dirty details that come along with owning a business and making it legitimate?
6. Brand Strategy Have you defined and refined your brand? What about your image and reputation–and what’s the difference? Are you confident that your brand identity in the marketplace is in line with who you truly are and will create the results you want?
7. Marketing Strategy Do you understand the pros and cons of the wide variety of online marketing strategies? Do you know how they work and what they cost in dollars and time? Do you understand how to give people what they need from you at the right time?
8. Sales Strategy Have you cultivated an appropriate sales mindset? Do you have abundant courage to engage and convert clients because they need your value? Are you clear on and dialed into email funnels, pages, and lead magnets? Is your sales strategy integrated with your brand, marketing, and customer success strategies?
9. Customer Success Do you interact with your customers in a way that leads to your customers’ success? Does your customer interaction lead to customer loyalty? Are your customers your best salespeople?
10. Growth and Scaling Strategy Should you grow? Is this the right time to scale? How will you take what you’ve created to the next level by building and leading teams that have your back? How can you ensure that your growth will be resilient, profitable, and sustainable?
11. High Performance Strategy What does it take to keep up with the demands of owning a thriving business? Are you becoming, attaining, and obtaining the abundance you want and need for sustained prosperity? Do you recognize the connection between your high performance habits and your company’s performance?
12. Professional and Personal Relationships Do you recognize the need for and the difficulty of achieving work/life balance? Do you consistently show up for everyone who’s relying on you in your professional and personal world?
BONUS: Coaching for Abundance Have you defined, built, and grown your Coaching practice so that you and your clientele are ever moving forward toward achieving great abundance in your personal and professional lives? Are you even signing coaching clients? Are your clients regularly having ah-ha moments because of your coaching technique? Are you changing lives through your coaching?
Are you struggling with your business strategy? Message me–let’s talk.
When you are ready to create your abundant life, it’s time to ask and answer:
What do you actually, truly want?
Where are you lacking abundance?
Where are you taking joy in abundance?
However we define it, we all want an abundant life. The truth is that abundance is within reach for all of us. That’s what motivates me as a strategist: helping people reach new levels of abundance, however they define it.
