This last week was so exciting for me…. We got to welcome into the world our new little grand daughter, Molly. I know that I am biased, but she is absolutely perfect! What do you think?
I’ve spent a lot of time away from my business this week, and fortunately didn’t have to worry about whether or not things were still moving forward. Money is still arriving in my bank account even while I’m getting my ‘nana’ cuddles and I have to say it’s a wonderful feeling!
There’s been lots of time for reflection and I got to thinking about you….
There’s a good old saying “The grass is always greener on the other side.”
It’s this idea that often gives life to your initial desire to want to start your own online business. You start imagining the possibility of being able to keep your own hours and not have to answer to a boss. What a delight it would be to work from home and stay snug in your comfy clothes. No more suits and dresses to go to the office, or fighting daily traffic just to get there. Being able to take holidays or days off whenever you fancy. You can see yourself having the luxury of earning more money and to spend it on ‘wants’ rather than just ‘make do’ with paying for the ‘needs’.
All of these things seem attractive ‘on the other side’. When you put that together with your entrepreneurial spirit, the decision to start your own business, working from home and using the internet can become irresistible.
So let’s assume that you take the plunge. You do start your own online business – and in fact, you are making progress. Yay!!
What does your business model look like? In fact do you even HAVE a business model, or are you simply flying by the seat of your pants?
How do you spend your time each day?
Do you have a list of daily tasks that looks as long as a shopping list for a hungry family?
It’s very easy to have grand ideas of a freedom lifestyle when you run your own online business, but the reality is that many people simply create a ‘prison like’ environment for themselves. It’s easy to suddenly find yourself chained to your desk for longer hours than you would ever have given a boss. And often, for much less return than you had originally hoped for.
This dedication and commitment to your business comes easily when you are passionate about your topic – that doesn’t mean that it’s healthy.
Over the past six months, while we have been waiting for Molly’s arrival I’ve spent time analyzing my business, where my main income is generated and where all my effort is spent.
I’ve been stripping back, restructuring and rebuilding with ONLY what is absolutely necessary for me to reach my goals while at the same time providing YOU with an even higher level of support.
You might be surprised to know that you can actually build a 6 figure online business with just ONE really well constructed sales funnel.
You don’t need six different products. You don’t need 8 different programs and 5 different facebook groups!
I believe I can ‘have it all’ and I know that YOU can too!
A successful online business can be built with SIMPLICITY. The less moving parts there are, the less overwhelm and overheads there is. Most people over complicate things and end up in confusion and exhaustion. Or worst still, going round and round in circles and only wondering ‘what happened’ to the freedom, flexibility and financial abundance they hoped for.
Keep your eyes peeled because in the next few weeks I’ll be revealing to you exactly how you can create a simplified, successful online business that will give you a freedom lifestyle. I know you’re just going to love it!
Creating Your Own Freedom Lifestyle
In the meantime, take the opportunity to really analyse some of the following things:
- your business model
- your process maps and systems
- who you work with
- how you reach and support your customers
- what are your main money making activities
Perhaps you too can strip away some of the unnecessary, less productive activities. And instead, focus more on refining and tweaking one really awesome sales funnel that converts like crazy and gets your customers awesome results!
I just love hanging out with Molly when I want to!
