Isn´t that just the one thing we would all love to know at every stage of building our business!?! Am I on track? Am I heading in the right direction? Will this action step bring me closer to the results I desire?
That angst that eats away at your gut as you wonder if you know what the hell you are doing when the Facebook post you just spent 45 mins doing, didn’t even get a like!
How about the brilliant idea in the shower that you know your clients will leap at, but by the time you get to your desk its gone!
Initially, it is all about getting clear on how to take the vision for our purpose driven business into reality. Outside the basic structure we set up, our focus quickly moves to getting our marketing right, dealing with clients and trying to stay visible on social media. However, when all our action taking yields positive results, we fumble around trying to put the necessary structure in place to contain our services in a professional manner.
It probably wont surprise you to find out that the majority of visionary entrepreneurs are so focused on “the doing” that they miss many clues to working smarter, not harder. It happens to all of us!
The way I see it: The foolproof way to know you are on track is to measure your results. You get what you focus on and what you measure!
Simple huh? The truth always is 😉
Whether it is turnover or profit or how many clients you have a week – you get what you focus on and what you measure, so make a decision on what will be serve you best to measure and then put the necessary systems in place. If systems and structure are not something you have done much of before, work with your accountant or VA to get set up and then make it a priority to routinely check where you are at – and course correct as necessary.
When you have systems in place that support the structure of your business, its easy to see what action steps are converting and which ones are a waste of your time. It also keeps you on track so that you don’t go down all those dead end streets called comparisionitis or perfectionismitis. They are draining, blow out your adrenals and get you no closer to where you want to go.
Measure yourself against yourself and not other entrepreneurs unless you have in depth knowledge about their results.
And as to the “CRAFT” issue (cant remember a f*ing thing) from shower to desk – it all goes back to your plan. That is why vision boards work so well – when you constantly focus on what you desire, you naturally think about ways to create it. When you have a clear plan; clear your blocks to success as you take inspired action; have the structure and support in place AND you routinely monitor your results – you will GET what you measure!
Remember that every successful entrepreneur was once where you are now!
You already have all the potential you will ever need within you! Tap into your Mojo, get focused and just do it!
The dream of creating time, lifestyle and financial freedom whilst fulfilling your purpose, lives in you for a reason – give it some Champagne for your Soul and trust yourself – You have got this!
