It can be difficult to know where to place your focus on any given day as a business owner.

"All the things" can quickly pile up, leading to over-complication and confusion.

Challenge Objective:

Explore and establish a system for prioritizing business tasks in order to simplify the daily process of building a business.

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Follow the weekly prompts (found in the community, under the #monthlychallenge thread).

    1. Post in the group with your insights, struggles, aha's, and progress. Each general progress post will earn you one entry into the prize drawing at the end of the month.

March Challenge: Taking Action

March Challenge: Taking Action

One of the biggest stumbling blocks in new entrepreneurs: failing to take action.

I see and hear it all the time:

"I need to know how this whole thing is going to look before I do something."
"I'm just so unclear about it all! I'm scared of taking the wrong action!"
"I'm going to brainstorm a while before I do anything."

As a World Champion Over-Thinker, I can tell you that taking time to think, rather than taking action, never works.

I know it's counter-intuitive, but action really does create clarity.

If I'm lost in the woods, sitting there and thinking about the best direction to take is not going to help me discover the best direction to take. All sitting and thinking is going to do is keep me lost.

Instead, I need to just pick a direction, and start walking. Once I start walking, I'll sooner or later discover if I made the right or wrong choice, and I can course-correct from there.

Our businesses are exactly the same.

Conventional business wisdom tells us that we have to have all of our shit together before we start, but that's not true anymore. This belief keeps us stuck.

The current reality is that online, we can build our businesses over time with a lot more flexibility than the way business was done 15+ years ago.

Challenge Objective:

Consistently move through fear and take strategic action on building our businesses.

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Follow the weekly prompts.
  • Complete the accompanying worksheets to work with and release the underlying fears, beliefs, or mindset blocks.
  • Earn entries into the prize drawing: 
    1. Post in the group with your insights, struggles, aha's, and progress, with the hashtag: #FebruaryChallenge. Each general progress post will earn you one entry into the prize drawing at the end of the month.
    2. Watch & participate in the Thursday FB Live check-ins for one additional entry each week.
    3. Complete the prompt, post about it in the group with a specifying hashtag (ex: #Week2), and earn 2 entries into the prize drawing.

The Prize:

January Challenge: Visibility

Learning to be visible is one of the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs today. We each bring our own baggage and fear associated with visibility, and if we don't acknowledge it, it can prevent us from really thriving.

Visibility, in the context of entrepreneurship, means: the ability to allow your content, products, services, and your brand to be seen. 

For many of us, we are the face of our brand, and when we're not used to being seen on such a large scale, we devise ways to hide.

Examples of Fear of Visibility in entrepreneurship:

  • Not sharing or launching your website until ___(fill in the blank)____.
  • Avoiding marketing your business (or learning how to market your business).
  • Rarely (or never) talking about personal experiences or showing your personality.
  • Rarely (or never) sharing images of yourself.
  • Avoiding real-life conversations about your business.
  • Putting off important investments/benchmarks.
  • Getting overwhelmed right before you're about to do something that would make you/your business more visible.

If you can relate to any of the above, you're not alone. All entrepreneurs have some level of this fear, and continue to work through it throughout the journey.

AND: you do not need to solve your fear of visibility before becoming visible!! That is a BS belief based in fear of visibility ("I need to fix x,y,z before I can be successful."). The only way to overcome the fear is to practice being visible.

Challenge Objective:

To cultivate courage and stretch our comfort zones in order for our businesses/brands to be more visible.

Challenge Guidelines:

  1. Follow the weekly prompts (sent via email) to stretch your comfort zone.
  2. Complete the accompanying worksheets to work with and release the underlying fears.
  3. Post in the group with your insights, struggles, aha's, and progress. Each post you create will earn you one entry into the prize drawing at the end of the month.
  4. Complete the prompt, post about it in the group, and earn 2 entries into the prize drawing.

The Prize:

 

Check in with your progress as much as possible to be entered to win a Palo Santo stick and a Quartz crystal!

 
 
 

Talk to someone (outside your immediate circle) about your business.

To go further: Talk to more than one person!
