I really do not know where this year is going. Did anyone get fooled this year? So what am I going to blog about today? Do you know what. I really don’t have a clue. Honestly I’m sitting here thinking what do I want to tell you about or get you involved in. Well the easy answer is I don’t know. I have been so busy with clients these past two week, which is great but nothing has been playing on my mind. Well I say that. but something that is becoming more and more evident on social media and that is the amount of people telling you how to sell your business. How to run ads on Facebook. how to create a sales funnel, blah blah blah.
Now as a new business owner I was drawn into some of these ads until I very quickly realised that actually all I was doing was helping expand their business and not helping mine at all. Don’t get me wrong there are some really good ideas out there and there are people who know their stuff. However do they know their stuff for you particular type of business?
I have been very lucky since I went full time. I found an online mentor Sarah Baker who does know her stuff especially for therapists. I have made some good friends within communities of other like minded hypnotherapists. especially within the Blueprint family and I sold the best asset I had. Me! by selling me and my enthusiasm and belief I am building a business mainly on recommendations and testimonials.
Now please don’t get me wrong. I’m not here bragging, far from it. The message I want to get across to you is believe in yourself. Believe in what you do and what you can do for others. We all have qualities within us that make us special. Don’t hide those qualities. let them come out. feel good about yourself, feel good for helping others. I know I do and every time I receive a testimonial or just a quick text to say how much better they feel or how much their life has changed. I guarantee that will make my day.
It doesn’t matter what you do, you may own a business you may be a full time Mum but whatever you do, if you do it with self belief and confidence it makes a difference. If you believe in you others will believe in you and others will trust you. Your own children will follow your ways as they learn through rope behaviour, so show them how to feel confident, how to have self belief, how to be themselves.
Do what you want to do. DO you want to write a book? I did, I now have seven under my belt (6 children’s books and and an anxiety book for Mums) Do you want to start your own business? Do it. I did, it’s not easy but it is so rewarding. I did this and so much more because I believe in me.
If you need help believing in yourself, contact me. I would love to help.
Well It’s short and sweet but it comes from the heart.
Until next week, be happy, be strong and smile
