Sales funnels. Newsletters. Opt ins. Webinars. Blogs. Leads. Web calls. Freebies. Professional photos. Branding. Facebook Live. Business.
Feeling stressed out yet just thinking about all the things we're supposed to be doing as business owners? I bet you are - especially if you don't have a team of people to help you juggle and do all the things.
But here's the thing...
You started your own business because you wanted to be your own boss, right? I know I did, and I'll be damned if I'll let some business coach boss me around so I can be whatever their version of success is. I became a business owner because the only source of validation I wanted to matter was from within myself. I wanted to stop comparing myself to my peers to obtain a promotion. I wanted to be paid what I am worth and I wanted to make my own rules.
My biggest desire in life is to create a life in which I don't need a vacation. I wanted to spend my days playing Barbies with my daughters, and I didn't want to have to leave work early to go get my sons at school or have to request off to attend their basketball and soccer games. I want to have a life where I work smarter, not harder. But the real question is...
Is this all possible doing this my own way?
I don't even know what a sales funnel is. I have no idea how to build a lead page, and we're lucky that I could understand coding just enough to get an opt-in for a newsletter on my own website. But here I am, consistently toeing the life/work balance, even sometimes turning down client hours, because I'm doing so well making my own rules and working my business the way I see fit.
Two words: I'm real. My clients know when they ask something of me, I will complete the task in the easiest manner possible. They know I understand the concept of time is money, and that when it comes to running my business and theirs, I'm honest. They know that I actually care about them, learning their voice, and understanding the way that they run their business. They know I'm not going to sweat about the small stuff, and that I take care of myself so that I can take care of my family and theirs.
My mindset, personality, and the type of person that I am work together like honey. When it comes to marketing myself in a fun way that people can relate to and want to work with, I am the queen. Who doesn't want to work with someone who loves what they do and is almost always happy, upbeat, and smiling?
I don't have to "get" clients - my clients come to me because they like the type of person I am and they're serious about getting the job done.
And if you've been reading this and have been thinking, man this VA sounds like a boss, well you're right - I'm really good at what I do. Life is too short to work through it being stressed out, angry, and irritable. You don't have to play games to "get" clients - you just need to build a team that GETS you.
