When another business opportunity comes along…

In one of my private coaching groups, I was asked the following question:

“I’m focused on real estate/architectural photography, but I’m entrepreneurial… What thought checks and balances should I think through when another business opportunity comes along that isn’t all this thing that I’m doing now. (Assuming that I could probably split my time between the two of them).”

My (quick)answer to this individuals very important question:

“1. You can’t split your time between them right now, because every spare second of sanctified work time should be spent lead generating so that THIS business, can become a 6 figure income stream, and source of freedom and joy.

2. Once this business is generating enough income for you to sub out the minutia to an employee/contractor, only THEN do I believe its particularly wise to dabble in other opportunities(as long as the bottom line makes sense).

3. Not every opportunity is a good one – sometimes, we find ourselves considering other opportunities as a sub-conscious form of procrastination. If you’re and entre, you’ll always find opportunity finding you – filter it through your own strainer.

4. The key to a successful business is FOLLOW-THROUGH. See your business out as a 6 figure generator, and your thoughts will become your reality.

5. Give 100% to this opportunity, and if you find yourself feeling friction, resistance, etc, then pivot and move forward.

A few thought checks;

1. Is this opportunity a massive win-win for me?
2. Am I procrastinating by considering it?
3. Am I afraid to give 100% to my primary focus because I am afraid it will fail?
4. Am I spending all my free time wisely for my primary focus?
5. Do I want to make a ton of money doing what I love, while working half the time most do, so I can spend time with my family, travel to sunny places, and give to others? (You started this primary focus to achieve your WHYS – don’t sell it short by allowing your sub-concious distract you because it’s not comfortable with how great things are becoming)

I can never think of a time in my professional career that I wasn’t constantly tempted/asked/baited to take on new opportunities.

The times in my life where I resisted, and kept my focus, is where I’ve seen dramatic growth – almost like, I was rewarded for saying no.

Because remember this:

When you say NO to something less important than your focus, you’re saying YES to your focus, and yes to the future you desire most.”

I hope this blesses you and your journey.

Take Action. Break Through. REPEAT.

When you genuinely care about people….

And you care about giving them what they already want….

And you have the courage to re-align them when their insecurities or doubts surface about what they believe they deserve…

…sales can become an incredible form of love….

and this concept…… = REAL RESULTS.

What this coaching client of mine is doing costs nothing but time and energy. No special tricks, no gimmicks, no bull, no ninjas, no___________.

Back to basics. Timeless basics.

If you’re a business owner, and you’re ready to increase sales, decrease stress, increase freedom, decrease guess work(which is EXPENSIVE), and SERVE MORE PEOPLE….

Shoot me a PM.

Because….. “it works lol”

Break through, take action, repeat.
