Holy crap! Is it already the 20th? It totally sneaked up on me!
I spent the entire weekend on a home improvement project that included replacing 90% of the plumbing under my kitchen sink and demo-ing a cabinet so the new frig would fit. I live in a tiny little house, called The Bentwood Bungalow, that was built in 1949 and is all original with a few exceptions. We're slowly making it more enjoyable for our modern-day lifestyle. :)
Today I'm going to talk business. Specifically, sales. That used to be a "bad word" for me until really recently.
My confession for today is that even though I envision myself as a Big, Bold, Badass Entrepreneurial Goddess I struggle with consistently generating revenue and to do so I must shift my view of sales.
Hell, I didn't even start using the term "revenue" until the last few months.
With the exception of the first job I got right outta high school at Malibu Grand Prix in San Antonio, I've ALWAYS worked for myself. Even when I was a call girl I was an independent contractor. (Maybe one day I'll share memoir-like with ya about that period of my life.)
Here's the thing. I've always worked for myself, and I've never treated the work I do like a BUSINESS. It's been brought to my attention that I've been approaching things from a "healer mind-set" rather than a "holistic entrepreneur". So basically my faith in the Universe has been my economic model (I just learned that phrase, too.)
And while for a long time that sufficed for me, it no longer does.
Don't misunderstand, I still have faith in the infinite wisdom and abundance of the Universe (feel free to use the word God here, if you like that better). In fact, I suspect that is precisely what's compelling me to grow and see things from another angle.
I've relied on my gifts as the Lover and the Mystic archetypes which include the following:
And now it's time to develop my dormant gifts, those of the Warrior and Queen archetypes. Check out the qualities they are known for:
As I strengthen my areas of weakness (the Warrior and Queen qualities) I know that my vision is dependent on me being the BEST VERSION of myself and that I am capable of more than I have been so far.
Allowing myself to be cool with the word, "sales", is a good starting point.
If I am to realize my vision of "a global community of women executives and entrepreneurs who are tuned-in and turned-on, activating their hearts’ desires and manifesting lives they LOVE" it will be because hundreds...no, thousands of women bought what I'm selling.
My BUSINESS is a personal growth and development company for women who want it all. I partner with smart and stylish entrepreneurs & executives who recognize the value in finding their rhythm to harmonize their professional and personal lives.
The coaching programs (I sell) are designed to accurately expose the client's most authentic desires and compelling vision. We leverage your strengths while overcoming weaknesses, and utilize a custom co-created strategy that yields transformational results.
I have created AMPLOVEFY (my biz) because it takes personal growth and development and makes it COOL and FUN. And that's exactly the kind of program I want to be in to create the FABULOUS life I desire.
So I guess you could say I'm selling A FABULOUS LIFE TO WOMEN WHO WANT IT ALL (and that includes ME). I can totally get on board with that.
Knowing that, I am no longer gagging at the mention of the word "sales" as it pertains to my business. And I am learning and growing to achieve the results I desire.
Oh, and I stand behind what I'm selling...this series of confessions, aka a public display of personal growth, is me DOING my 6-month program.
I hope this episode serves you in some way.
