Building your confidence in business is an essential part of helping your brand to grow. But it isn’t always easy. It can be scary putting yourself outside your comfort zone and pushing forward when you need to. Many of us miss opportunities as our confidence holds us back. Whether it’s having the confidence to get visible by doing speaking events, running workshops, going live on socials, or taking steps to grow by hiring staff, launching new products and investing in training, not having the confidence to move your business forward is going to hold it back. Fact. But … (truth bomb alert!) none of us are 100% confident all of the time. None of us. And there are steps you can take to improve your own confidence and start growing your business.
If you’ve not heard the term ‘money mindset’ before, you may not be aware of the implications it has for you and your business. We all hold our own beliefs around money and these drive our decisions around saving, spending and handling money. Our money mindset can have a huge impact on how we make important decisions about where to direct our financial resources and how we invest in our businesses. If your beliefs surrounding money are largely negative, you may just find that your money mindset is holding your business back.
If you’re a female entrepreneur running your own business, you’ve more than likely met a few business coaches along the way. Perhaps at networking meetings? At online or in person events? On LinkedIn or other social media platforms? Investing in working with a business coach can be a great way to develop your strategy and achieve your business goals.
Everywhere you look right now people want to tell you how they took their business from zero to £100k in 30 days. How if you sign up for their latest course/bootcamp/programme, you’ll be earning ridiculous amounts of money in a matter of weeks. There are posts like this popping up all over our social media feeds and I’m finding it a little frustrating if I’m honest.
We can all agree that we’ve been through a pretty tough couple of years. The pandemic has affected all of us in different ways and it’s clear that female entrepreneurs have been hugely impacted. Many female business owners had to put their businesses on hold throughout the various lockdowns and suddenly turn their hand to home schooling and keeping everyone around them going.
The term ‘abundance mindset’ is one that is cropping up more and more. It’s become a very ‘on trend’ phrase and is vaguely thrown about in lots of articles and social media posts, often without a full explanation of what it actually means. In this blog, I’m shining a light on what it really means to have an abundance mindset and how it can help you in your business.
Whilst it might be true that we don’t need a new year to make a new start or set new goals, January is traditionally the month that many of us take the time to reset and reframe our goals for the year ahead, me included. Goal setting for an entire year can seem overwhelming and, if you’re feeling as though your motivation has deserted you, you’re not alone. January can be a long month.
Traditionally at this time of year we’re all looking to make changes in our lives. Whether it’s making resolutions, setting new goals, or looking at how we can make positive changes to our daily habits and routines.
In this month’s blog post, I wanted to share something that’s really helped me to embed positive changes in my daily life and enabled me to improve my mindset for the better … reading.
Christmas 2021 is being billed as the Christmas that will outshine every other year. It’s barely December and we’ve already experienced shops full of Christmas stock, Christmas ads on TV and the news is bombarding us with media reports about possible stock shortages for Christmas.
I often hear people tell me that they struggle with perfectionism. Whether I’m working with clients or chatting to colleagues and friends, it’s a term that comes up a lot. An awful lot. Think about it. Go back to those conversations you’ve had with your business besties, how often have you heard them say: ‘Ah but I’m a perfectionist’ or ‘Oh but I couldn’t possibly put that new /product/service/course out just yet, it’s not quite perfect.’
When it comes to being a successful female business owner, it’s fair to say that strategy is an essential part of building and succeeding at business. We have a plan, we invest our time and money in training courses and workshops, we’re constantly striving to expand our knowledge and be the best that we can be in order to succeed.
If you’re a female business owner, this is something that you’ve probably asked yourself on more than one occasion. As women in business, we’re often asked to wear several hats and we can quickly find ourselves being pulled in a variety of directions. Whether that’s in our role as a business owner, a mother, a friend, a partner, a creative or an entrepreneur, there’s certainly a lot of multi-tasking involved.
