For Small Businesses
Are you driven and wanting fast results and/or not getting the results you think you are capable of?
Or not getting the results that your external resources should project for you?
I mean I couldn’t expect it to be all beer and skittles right?
I’d left my marriage with little to no resource and started from scratch. I was a single parent raising two children. The balance – including in the bank, tenuous at times.
Hey, I acknowledge and give myself a big pat on the back for the fact that I raised two children and ran a business that put food on the table.
Both my children assure me they felt loved, supported and had a good childhood. So BIG TICK there. And I loved learning, teaching and helping others to be successful in business. My clients did well and I was doing OK. Then I made not just one, but two near fatal business decisions.
I hit rock bottom! It had been tough before at times but this time it was different. I felt exhausted and done.
The hardest part was owning it. I absolutely struggled to talk with anyone.
I had two choices, I could stay down and watch everything turn to sh$t, or I could get back on the horse. I chose the latter. I knew what I needed to do.
I engaged a coach and turned my business around in double quick time to a highly profitable business! Incredible and scary.
I was too close to my business and to me. I was emotionally attached. Having someone outside of my business and outside of my head helped me see and do the things I needed to do to recover from the massive knocks and be in better business shape than I ever had been. (I’m still working on the kilos part!) I knew it all on a practical level, but I needed that external view and support. I also needed to get serious and honest with myself.
So yeah, I know how you feel. Better than that, I know how to get you through to where you want to be.
