Help wanted. This is the signage my client told me she wanted to hang around her neck not too long ago when she was trying to figure out the next step to take with her business.
Ever been there?—trying to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be?
- Deep down you know that you’re destined for greater things
- You know you should be making more money
- You know you should have more clients
- You know you should be making a bigger impact
But somehow your dream of what you should be doing is dying in the middle of your struggle to get the day-to-day tasks done.
Even though you are exhausted, you keep trying to make it happen on your own—and you’re just not where you want to be. What gives? What’s the endgame for the hamster wheel you’ve got yourself on as you try to build/maintain/grow a thriving business?
This is an intervention. It’s time to get help. You simply can’t do it all alone and that’s ok. Besides the whole lone ranger prototype of doing business is sooo two decades ago.
Be over it. Hire help. YES you can have it all, but NO you can’t do it by yourself. The 10-15% of entrepreneurs who are wildly successful have a secret—they have help. They’ve hired a coach, joined a mastermind… Enlisted someone who thinks higher to help them get to the next level.
Not long ago at one of my live events I heard a business owner say these words and I never forgot it;
“I have big dreams and big goals and I’m honestly afraid that I’m not going to reach them.”
That’s the very real and very common sentiment but it doesn’t have to be your reality. Trade that fear in for clear strategies on what to do next. Get your focus back.
Get free from the fear of what’s next.
Connect with a coach or a mastermind group that can help you see beyond your shortcomings and get you to imagine the possibilities again. –And even better– not just imagine the possibilities but help you map out the strategies to actually manifest your dreams and goals.
If you’re trying to take your business to the next level and are still on the fence about getting help consider this.
There are proven strategies, hacks, short cuts, insights and practices that will put you on the fast track to business success.
Don’t be the person who struggles alone hoping for a business breakthrough. You’ve tried the one-man or one-woman show, and it’s not working out how you hoped it would…
So why cling to old ideas and practices that are sinking your business and stealing your peace of mind?
Recently we talked with, and surveyed hundreds of customers and coaching clients who either owned a thriving business, were currently growing a new business or were thinking about starting a business in the next 12 months. We asked them what they needed help with and why they believed enlisting a coach was necessary—here’s what we learned and we completely agree…
4 Reasons You Need A Coach
(Of course this list isn’t exhaustive, but this is a great start).Are you dealing with the same financial struggles that you were dealing with last year? Two years ago? 5 years, 10 years, 20 years ago?
Here’s the test… If another year has rolled around and you are pretty much in the same space; with the same income, and the same issues as last year or even worse you’ve gone backwards, it’s time to invest in yourself and get some help. Coaching is calling you.
YES! it’s frustrating, exhausting and embarassing to stay stagnant in business when you know you are capable of much more.
It can be devastating to work hard to change your situation and wind up right back where you started. You can start to feel like there’s no way out.
Guess what? There is a way out. It is never too late. Honestly, I don’t care how bad your situation seems. If you take the right actions, you’ll see the right outcomes. The problem is, you may not know which actions to take. You need someone that’s been where you are to show you how to get to where you want to be.
My coaching client Cheryl felt stuck. She had been in business for over ten years, but in all that time she hadn’t made any real money. She couldn’t leave her 9-5 job because she needed the income. She desired to be in business full-time, but she felt like she had no way out. That all changed for her when she joined the Success Mastery coaching program. She revamped her marketing and developed new products. She was able to double her clientele. After less than a year of coaching, she was making over $10,000 per month from her business and was finally able to leave her day job!
Let’s be frank. Yes you are in business to service others but at the end of the day you are in business to make money.
Maybe you make $30,000 on your job. Maybe you make $60,000, maybe you make $500,000. To some, you look like you’re doing pretty well. But you know that there are things you want that your income simply can’t provide. There are experiences you want to have. People you want to help. Things you want to provide for your children. A lifestyle you know you were created for. The truth is, you need more money to attain these things. Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it definitely buys a lot of important things! You know you’re worth more. The products and services you can and do provide are extremely valuable. But you’re not being compensated accordingly.
People hire a coach because they want to get paid what they’re worth. They want to break out of the income bracket they’ve been stuck in. They want to be able to afford the things they desire – from luxury vacations, to better schools for their children, to building a home for their families, to supporting that cause that means so much to them. A coach can show you how to finally start earning what you’re worth. Adding new streams of income, leveraging the knowledge you already have, adding value to your offers – a good coach can show you how to do all these things and more.
I helped one of my coaching clients Lulu define her niche and double her income. She had this to say, “I was all over the place. My brand was undefined and professionally I was ready to move to the next level but didn’t know how to ask for an increase. I felt incomplete watching my peers achieve their entrepreneurial dreams and I was not quite there yet. Success Mastery provided structure and a road map to success by providing the tools necessary to not only get on the right track but see results if work was put in to it.
All the advice that was given from Dr. Stacia and Ariana Pierce helped tremendously and because of it, I have seen major breakthroughs both in my entrepreneurial ventures and professional work. I gained so much clarity and started focusing on my niche market. Then I launched my pageant consulting firm and quickly landed several new contracts including a $15K contract with a prominent Resort. I’ve also been promoted to regional director on my job which resulted in a $40,000 increase in my salary. I now earn six figures! I’m so excited about my business and my professional career. I’ve improved in so many ways personally and on the job. I look forward to seeing continued success and could not thank Dr. Stacia Pierce enough and met some great friends for a lifetime through the Success Mastery Course.”I’ve always said that dreams die between what to do and how to do it. To succeed in business in the 21st century, you must learn the “how” and have systems for everything. Systems for maximizing your return on investments in online advertising. Systems for utilizing social media to increase your brand awareness, social engagement and website traffic. Systems for inventory control if you’re in retail, or time management if you oversee consultants. You need systems to monitor your cash-flow, and systems for creating cash infusions when you need them.
If you don’t have the right systems in place, you simply will not succeed at a high level. Many people realize they need these systems, but don’t know how to put them in place. That’s where coaching comes in. A coach can show you how to maximize your social media and online presence for increased income. A coach can guide you through setting up the right software for managing your products, people and assets.
My coaching client, Overere, learned the importance of implementing systems when he joined my coaching program, Success Mastery. He had been in business for many years, but lacked the guidance and support he needed to systemize his processes. He learned how to get his physical store organized, and how to create a quality website that would work like an ATM for him. After implementing the systems, he makes $6,000-$10,000 more in his business every month. He says he not only makes more money, but that he’s finally able to live the lifestyle he’s dreamed of and enjoy the freedom he always wanted.
Connecting to the right coach will cause you to stop settling for ok. You didn’t start your business just to do “ok” — so it’s time out for being basic. In this season of your life it’s now or never– it’s time go big or go home!
So connect to a coaching program that’s going to make you answer the hard questions
- Why are you here?
- Who are you suppose to impact?
- What lives are supposed to change because of your story, products or services?
- What’s your why?
Whatever the answers to those questions, you owe it to yourself and those you influence to succeed.
In light of purposeful living and the bigger picture, getting help because of a mandate not a maybe.
My client, Wyvetta, joined Success Mastery without a business at all. But she felt like she had a mandate to succeed and help those around her. Wyvetta didn’t know exactly what she was going to do. She just knew she wanted more out of life and needed a coaching program to learn from and be accountable to. So she took a leap of faith.
She didn’t try to figure everything out on her own… Because all of her answers were on the other side, in coaching.
–And WOW what a difference that accountability and insight made!! She earned $50,000 in her first eight weeks. Within a year she had earned over six figures in her business. By year 2 she had a million-dollar business!
This would have never happened if she hadn’t modeled my success.
She simply implemented each lesson, held herself accountable on the calls and during the live masterminds. Which resulted in Wyvetta multiplying her income over and over again.
Every month, at check in she had increased her business! I am truly grateful for every one of my clients and the opportunity to help them change their lives.
There is a higher purpose for you to enlist help. That coaching program—that mastermind is a huge key to fulfilling the purpose you were meant to do.
The richest people in the world have coaches and pay to be in masterminds. You have to INVEST in your advancement if you truly want to change your life and your business.
It’s your turn now to live the dream. You too can have your best business year yet, like so many of our clients have…
From six figure contracts, to international sold-out speaking engagements, sold-out book launches and hundreds of new clients and courses it’s been an amazing year for our Success Mastery Family.If you’re looking to level up with your business AND get some new business besties…
