How is your joy of business?
When Business is Me, Myself, and I
“What can I do to improve the number of my clients?” This is a question that comes up frequently in my business seminars. Usually, the person asking it loves what they do – whether it’s coaching or being a motivational speaker – but there are other aspects of their business that they don’t enjoy.
The good news is, you don’t have to do it all.
If marketing, making sales calls, answering email inquiries on time or book keeping is not something you truly enjoy, hire someone else to do it. That’s the joy of business! It’s not about having all the answers but rather having the tools to deal with any situation that arises and changing what’s not working for you.
Often, when someone has founded and created their business from the ground up, they don’t want to hire extra staff. They say it costs a lot of money, it’s too complicated, how do you find the right people; there are so many different points of view about hiring staff.
Joy of Business – So Many Ideas, So Little Time
I have been there myself.
When Joy of Business first started, I employed one person who was great at technical systems. I had so many ideas and lots of things that I wanted to create, but each time we talked about them she said, “I’m not a creator”.
She said it five times before I got it. I had been so comfortable with one employee that I didn’t want to step into the unknown area of hiring a second or third person. When I finally realized that my business needed a different energy I hired two more people.
What Energy Does Your Business Require?
There are three energies you require for a business to work. They are creator, connector, mover. It doesn’t have to be three people; it’s three energies.
As the creator, you’re creating the energy of the whole business. Creators are visionaries; they are the ones who have a plethora of ideas and they come up with new ones all the time. Often, creators will judge themselves harshly because their ideas don’t come to fruition. What they don’t know is that they’ve got to add connectors and movers to their business.
