Is this your new normal?

I was wrapping up a project with a client. We had spent 6 months getting business processes up and running, tech tools set up to automate the routine stuff, and a support team in place to whom she could delegate.

Her business was rocking, rolling and ready to scale.

She told me how she now felt free, relaxed and well rested in her business. This scenario had become her new normal, and she told me how great it felt. It was how she had always imagined things would be for her and for her business.

This is when I thought of you.

What is your vision for your business?

  • Do you dream of having an assistant to do those things that bore you to tears and that, frankly, you suck at doing?
  • Would it be awesome to multiply the number of clients you serve?
  • How about finally having the right tech tools in place so you no longer have to waste time searching?

Watch this video where I’ll share how you can get crystal clear about what your new normal will look like.

These words become the mantra for running your business. This is your new belief system. It’s what drives you to stay up late putting out your newsletter, to skip a weekend because you have to create another slide presentation, to postpone a vacation because your business needs you.

You want things done your way and you believe it will take you longer to tell someone how to do it than if you just did it yourself. Not to mention, your belief that you’ll save money.

And that is how your DIY business is created.

The reality is this … doing everything yourself is impossible, impractical and it’s no fun AT ALL. More importantly, it isn’t sustainable for you or your business.
