Welcome back to another episode of Foot Traffic! Sometimes we have to do things we don’t enjoy now, to get to the benefit (or where we want to go) later. We live in a world of instant gratification. If it doesn’t bring immediate satisfaction or results, we don’t want to do it. For someone like me who is a doer, this is extremely hard, however, I am now reaping the rewards! And in the long run, I am moving my business forward faster and more efficiently. 

“Don’t you do things everyday that you don’t really want to do so your business can thrive?…” At minute 0:40, I’m reflecting on what worked and what didn’t work for our latest launch of the Foot Traffic Formula. Hear how every idea I come up with I think is the most amazing but why that’s not always a good thing and how advice from a coach mentor or someone on your team is necessary plus the proper timing.

“Not trying to sell but really trying to understand…” At 5:19, I’m sharing my second tip which is listening to our customers. This can be SO powerful to build those connections, showing that you care and you’re here to help. Not only that, but making sure we invest time to the right customer.

“You have to start moving forward, taking action…” At minute 9:42, let’s talk about indecisiveness and what to do when our customers can’t decide if your product or program is what they need. Plus, why we need to stop playing the victim role and understand that we will get burned during entrepreneurship but that doesn’t mean to stop taking action or risks.

“It’s not going to happen if you’re not willing to make those sacrifices…” At minute 15:14, we’re talking about taking consistent action and holding ourselves accountable. What is it that’s holding you back from being the business owner you were meant to be?
