The 6 letter word that kills your business (before you even start)


Are you TRYING?

Or are you going for it?

That’s the difference between succeeding and not.

You are either all the way in and you CHOOSE SUCCESS.

Or you are out.

There’s no in between.

“Trying” is bullshit. It means nothing.

“Trying” means you have one foot out of the door.

“Trying” means you don’t believe you can do it.

“Trying” means you won’t do everything it takes to actually make it work.

“Trying” kills your business before you even start.

This may sound harsh, but it’s the truth.

Most businesses fail because they didn’t do everything possible to figure out how to succeed. They had a PLAN B. If this doesn’t work then, what’s next. For solopreneurs it’s usually, “I’ll go back and get a job.”

Do you see the problem?

You are already thinking you won’t succeed because you have a back up plan. Your energy and focus is split thinking about the worst case scenario vs. thinking about how to figure it out and make your business work.

Successful people seek solutions to their problems. Their eyes are laser focused on success.

What does this mean for you?

It means that if you aren’t where you want to be in business, you must seek out the solution and get help.

If you suck at sales, get a sales coach.

If your mind goes bonkers, get a mindset coach.

If your brand is bland, get a branding coach (hint hint — or you can also download my FREE ebook, The ‘It” Brand Guide To Unbland Your Brand to get a jump start).

The point is, you need to seek solutions to your problems.

And bottom line is that you got to for it and start taking action.

Or you “try” find time, energy, money and you watch your business dreams go bye.

The choice is squarely in your hands.
