One of the key ways to grow your business quickly is to simply get help. Many entrepreneurs are resistant to help as they feel they need to figure it all out themselves.
Getting help to grow your business accelerates your path to more money and more impact in the world so if you’re in the “I should figure it out myself” mode right now, maybe it’s time to reconsider this old thinking.
I used to think I was supposed to figure it out myself and if I couldn’t it said something was wrong with me. I thought I would prove something if I succeeded on my own. Yet my sales at that time stayed WAY too low. The day I finally admitted that I didn’t actually know how to make great money in my business was one of the most pivotal days in my business.
It allowed me to finally ask for help and with that came rapid business growth.
I believe with all of my heart that the Universe wants you to succeed. Even MORE than you do. Because your business isn’t just about you. It’s about the people that you’re meant to impact. It’s about the amazing transformation that happens in their lives.
The Universe not only wants you to succeed but it doesn’t want you to do it alone. Alone is no fun. It’s tiring and it can take endless years or might not even happen. There is amazing support out there right now.
Your way to rapid business growth is likely around you right now, yet you won’t receive this help if you’re not willing to get help.
There are 2 important keys to investing in yourself and your business growth:
#1 Choose the RIGHT support. I’ll talk more about this in a moment.
#2 USE what you learn! This one may sound obvious but it’s not enough to learn how to grow your business, you must also implement what you learn! You’d be amazed at how many people don’t use what they learn and stay stuck! The key here is to implement what you learn so it’s an investment instead of an expense.
Now I will warn you, there are SO many people out there who can help you and they’re not all right for you.
It’s important to attract the RIGHT support for YOU to take you where you want to go. I’ve managed to do that over and over and I’d love to share with you the 3 steps I use to do this:
1. Specify the Assistance You’re Ready For
You are the owner of your business. You are the boss, you are responsible for your business at the end of the day. From an empowered place, take a look at what you feel you need to learn in order to grow.
At one point I was overwhelmed with so many 1:1 clients and I knew continuing to grow my business as it was would lead to burnout. So I clearly specified that I wanted to learn how to grow my business in a more leveraged way.
Some people don’t the actual “how to” of attracting clients. In this case it’s important to specify learning how to attract paying clients.
Or, some just know the next level of sales they’d like to grow to and they have no idea what they need to learn.
Take a moment right now to reflect on what type of assistance right now. The easiest way to do that is to fill in the blank here:
I don’t know how to ________________________.
For example, “I don’t know how to make more money in my business” “take my business to $_____ yearly sales” “I don’t know how to create a leveraged business” or “I don’t know how to attract paying clients”. Whatever it is for you.
2. Express Your Intention
When you are clear, your intention is SO powerful. I remember the most powerful intention I ever set.
I was a year into my first Engineering job and I was BORED. I knew I was meant to do something else. I felt empty inside.
One day I felt a clarity come over me. I realized, even though I didn’t know how in the heck I’d do what I loved for work or even what that was, I decided it was time. With a strong sense of clarity and intention, I wrote these words in my journal:
“I know that I’m meant to be more and do more, I’m ready, show me the way!”
The Universe was obviously listening. Within a few months I was laid off of my Engineering job and I began my path as an entrepreneur. I would not be writing these words to you right now had I not wrote out that clear intention.
Your intention opens up worlds of support that you can’t see yet. Now that you’re clear, it’s time to let the Universe know that you’re ready for support.
Go ahead and write out (and ideally say out loud) the following:
“I accept that I don’t know how to ________________ and I am now ready and willing to receive the exact help I need, show me the way!”
3. Use Your Intuition
Once you activate the support all around you by stating your intention, it will show up. And maybe other support that’s not for you will also show up. It’s up to you to discern what is the right support for you.
It’s important to see if the support that shows up feels right and fits what you need. For me it’s important to not just use logic but to use intuition. Sometimes intuition points out a way that feels right even if it seems like a scary thing to do.
Fear is not intuition, in fact, it’s often a good sign that you’re headed in the right direction.
The mentor I hired to help me leverage my business was a big investment and it was terrifying because of the situation I was in financially at the time. Yet my intuition kept saying yes so I chose to trust it. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, my sales doubled that next year.
If you’re confident in your intuition, great! You’ll know what help is best for you and you’re good to go.
If you’re not sure how to use your intuition confidently and quickly when it’s time to make a decision, I highly recommend the “Choice Illumination Process”.
I created this program because I had made so many decisions using my intuition that led me to a more prosperous and profitable business and I knew others could benefit from the process I use.
Right now it’s only $47, and is going up to $97 soon as this skill is so valuable!
