Ok, here it goes!
In order to make money, you need to invest money.
There is no way around it.
You cannot expect to grow your business without investing.
Of course, you get to choose where to invest your money.
If you are an online retailer, chances are, you have invested most of your money in inventory and a killer Website, and maybe you have a small amount left to invest in Facebook Ads.
If you’re a stylist, selling your services, you might think that you need only to invest in a Website, some digital ads or an email service provider, or perhaps a publicist?
The thing is, in either situation, you would be on the right track, but you are missing a big piece of the puzzle.
You are mistakenly thinking you can grow your business without investing in you. Am I right?
How do I know?
Well, I was once exactly where you are now!
I have been a retailer and a service provider (Hello, business coach!).
Back when I was starting my swimwear business I invested everything I had (and more) in my production, putting myself in major debt!
And of course, there was never money left for other important business expenses!!
More recently, as a coach, I mistakenly thought that since I didn’t have manufacturing costs, the required investment wouldn’t be as big…
Well, let me tell you how very wrong I was, on both accounts!!
Let me start by framing this very important point differently.
When you finished high school, did you enroll in College?
Chances are, you did. Why?
Because, like myself, you believed that investing in your education would give you a leg up in the “real world”.
By investing in your education, you knew you would eventually make yourself good living.
Ok, let’s be real!
You invested in your education because, like me, you knew it was the right thing to do, the logical next step in life, but secretly you thought that marrying Prince Charming would solve all of your problems :)
Well, we live in the real world now, and you have decided, and more importantly, you desire to be a successful fashion entrepreneur.
You know that if your business grows you can attain the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed about – with or without Prince Charming ;)
So, why not invest in yourself now to help grow your business?
Just as you invested in a college education, you should be investing in learning how to grow your business, so you can finally be successful and have the life you have been dreaming of!
And here comes the #TruthBomb, once again.
The only way to accelerate your success is by investing in it!
Unfortunately, there is no way around this very important fact!
I’m speaking from experience, believe me, this wasn’t how I always thought…
In fact, I actually thought I could grow my business for free.
And don’t get me wrong!
I’m not saying that it isn’t possible…anything is possible….but it takes a lot more time!!!
So, my next question is, how long are you willing to wait?
Actually, let me ask you a better question: How much income are you letting slip away by not investing in your business sooner?
Let’s do the math.
To make things simple, let’s say your average price per product or service is $100.
Let’s also say that by investing in your business and learning the tools you need to succeed, you could make 100 sales each month.
Here is the equation:
(# of Sales) x 1 Month x (average sales price) = Potential Income
100 Sales per Month x $100 = $10,000 a month that you are losing!
So, by hesitating you are missing out on $10,000 per month, and by not investing in your business it’s costing you $120,000 a year.
How does that feel?
Now that is a #TruthBomb!!!!
Please, don’t make the same mistake I made.
Stop wasting your time thinking that you can do it by yourself! Not to say that you can’t do it, but are you willing to lose potential income while you work through it on your own?
I have been there before, and yes, I can help you reach your business goals!
My first bit of advice: Stop wasting your time and efforts trying to do everything for free.
You don’t have to go at it alone.
Start investing now in your business education!
Believe me, it will pay off big time!
I wish someone had told me this a long time ago!!!
I wouldn’t have wasted so much money trying to jump start my business, but more importantly, I would have saved so much time!
You know the equation.
Plug in the figures for your business and discover your income potential!
The numbers speak for themselves!
How much money are you missing out on?
Don’t delay you success another day!
To your success,
