Does this sound familiar?
‘I just want…
‘… to have more time…’
‘… to be able to pay myself more…’
‘… to clear my overdraft…’
‘… to make a modest profit…’
‘… to go on holiday…’
‘… to feel proud of my business and all that I do.’
If you’re like most of the clients I work with, this will sound all too familiar.
You’ll be offering a professional service using a time-for-money model. That means your clients pay you by the hour, or by the day, or by the project, and it’s down to you personally to deliver what they’re paying for.
And it’s this that creates the vicious circle that has you asking all those ‘I just want…’ questions. It goes like this…
You line up some work for a client.
You deliver — brilliantly, I have no doubt.
But while you’re doing that, you have no time for any marketing (or, indeed, anything else) — and that’s just about OK while you’re getting paid.
Then you finish the work and realise you have nothing in the pipeline but the bills are still rolling in.
So you switch all your energy to marketing and generate a few leads. You convert just enough to keep the wolf from the door, and then the stressful cycle starts all over again.
It really doesn’t have to be like this
Relax. You’re not alone.
Far too many other owners end up feeling trapped in their micro-business.
But here’s the thing.
There is no need for it to be like this and change is much simpler than you may believe.
Work with me and I’ll help you develop the skills, mindset, and self-belief to start building a real business. A business that doesn’t rely on you to do everything and allows you to start living, not existing.
Together we’ll create a plan that kicks out procrastination and panic. We’ll banish ‘rabbit in the headlights’ syndrome and restore your self-belief.
And we’ll make it easier to get things done.
I’ll provide the tools, but — for the avoidance of doubt! — you’ll have to do the work!
Here’s some of what you can expect us to cover…
- Identifying your goals — and what your ideal life looks like
- Nailing your role as a business owner
- Developing your confidence
- Boosting your productivity
- Understanding your client
- Getting your positioning right — and then maximising it
- Making your marketing work
- Increasing your sales
- Streamlining your processes and systems
- Delegating and outsourcing — and letting go!
- … and toasting every success!
When you work with me, you’ll get a safe environment in which to grow. Somewhere you can be honest without fear of judgment and a space where you can set realistic goals you’re comfortable with.
But I will hold you fully accountable and you’ll get honest, constructive feedback at every step. It’s fair to say that if you just want your ego stroked, I’m probably not the coach for you!
Why not book a call with me now and let’s see if we’re a good fit…
Going for the £10k month
It’s not every micro-business owner’s goal, but it certainly resonates with most I’ve started working with!
They’re ticking over at between £2k to £5k in monthly revenue. So even reaching the VAT threshold of £85k a year looks unattainable, never mind generating another £15k on top of that.
But you’d be surprised.
And you’d be surprised how quickly what once seemed like a dream becomes reality.
If getting to your first £10k month sounds like a goal you’d like to set, book a free 30-minute call and let’s explore how best I can make it happen.
