We want to accomplish our goals, we want to make a difference in the world, and it’s inevitable that we’ll run into situations where we have anxiety about conversations which can hold us back from success.

How long have you been in the process of creating your business or product? How long have you been talking about launching a new program or trying a new strategy without actually getting to the point of doing it?

I talk a lot about how important it is to work ON your business instead of working IN your business, but how do you really do that when you’ve got family obligations and personal things going on and all kinds of other demands in your life?
It’s all about time blocking.
If you set things up so that your clients don’t schedule themselves during time you’ve set up...
You know it’s important to have a nurture campaign to get people to sign up for a discovery session with you, and we’ve talked about how important it is to have a nurture sequence set up to prepare them for their discovery session.
