Why I gave my client a promotion

It might seem impossible to give yourself a promotion when you work for yourself. But last week, I did just that. I promoted one of my clients. Actually, I often promote my clients without them even knowing it!

She was doing everything in her business: from scheduling meetings to sending out invoices. Not only did she often feel like she was burning out, she bogged down her projects and her team. Why? Because nothing got done without her seeing it, checking it, approving it.

She was accustomed to running her business this way. After all, that’s how things had always been done. Not to mention she was a bit of a control enthusiast.

What she didn’t realize was her business had changed. Among other things, she had a waiting list of ideal clients who wanted to work with her. She often wished she could clone herself.

I helped her see that if her business was going to grow into her vision, she needed to promote herself. If she wouldn’t do it … I would.

In this video you’ll hear the story of how I helped my client step into her new role, what that new role was, and how she reacted when I told her about it. No doubt, you will see some of yourself in her … and perhaps you’ll consider taking the next step I map out for you.
