Have you ever got excited about doing something valuable in your business and got stuck? It could be, offering your services and charging for the same or selling your own product or someone else’s product as an affiliate. The first question that comes up is What is the guarantee that my expertise or services or product will produce revenue? Will someone pay for my service?
As soon as we ask ourselves this question, we get hung up from moving forward. I have been there several times.
When you have a job you do not go through the pain of making these decisions, because your employer takes care of them. In fact as entrepreneurs, we experience this moment almost every day. I teach my clients what is called C(Choices)D(Decision)A(Action) system.
Let us say, your employer no longer needs you and you were forced to become self-employed. You could make one of these choices:
Explore Your Choices
Choice #1: You may choose to completely stop using your skills and expertise, by beating yourself up and believing that you are not good enough.
RESULT: You are coming in your own way of your personal and professional growth. This is a closed mindset and will definitely not help in creating revenue.
Choice #2 You may list and write down all the skills and expertise that helped you grow professionally in your job. Instead of worrying about not attracting a perfect job, offer your services to several business owners who are looking for your skills and expertise.
RESULT: You have opened up possibilities for yourself. You have given yourself permission to work and enrich your gifts, which in this case are your skills and expertise used in your job. In your mind, you have planted a seed of revenue producing opportunity.
Make a Decision
In this case, obviously, going with the second choice is definitely the best one, because this is an empowering mindset to create revenue.
Take Three Step Action
1. Have an invincible mindset that keeps you going no matter what. Create systems to keep you going despite the difficulties that cause most people to quit.
2. Create a system to share your expertise/skills with your prospects and clients. You can use Ezines, Discovery Sessions, Articles, Blogs, Teleseminars, Webinars etc.
3. Create a system to turn your knowledge into marketable content and sell them as products or services. You do this by creating and selling as ebooks, Audio Programs, 1 on 1 consultation, Workshops etc.
Now it is your turn…
