What happens when we take a step back?
Tell me if you can relate to this. There's just soo much to do and so many ideas and so much to implement that there's barely a minute in the day and time just goes.
We don't always know if we're moving towards our goals (exactly) but we're moving and that seems to matter most.
I recently decided to take a big step back and look at the big picture.
What am I actually trying to do here?
How do I want to help people?
What do they need?
What are my superpowers?
Where is this all supposed to end up?
I decided that I wanted some help getting clear on some of these questions and some hand-holding through the actions I need to take to get said clarity.
I invested in a coaching program with the Videofruit team.
And just so you know, I am not an affiliate and I'm not trying to promote this program in any way - I just want to share the process with you in hopes that it helps you in your own business.
First.. I had to set a goal. #vulnerabilitytime
Even though I've been in business for almost three years, I have always shied away from social media, I didn't bother building an email list or promoting myself, and I figured that I didn't want to start writing until I felt like I really had something really valuable to contribute.
But, we learn how to contribute in a more and more valuable way by contributing in the first place.
I've done a good job of building relationships and connections and have a steady stream of referral business that's kept me busy but, in order to grow I have to expand my circle.
So, the number one goal of my coaching program is to reach 1000 email subscribers in 60 days by taking massive action and implementing strategy after strategy until I reach my goal. (4000 is the stretch goal.. yikes!).
In taking a step back, I realized that I had to focus on one core goal to build the foundation for the next steps. Instead of pursuing this goal along with 100 other things as I usually would, I'm going to do a deep dive and learn as much as I can.
I'm going to measure, reflect, revise, until I get it right.
Do you have an email list?
If so, did you start building it right away?
If not, what's holding you back from building one?
