TODAY’S TRUTH —-> I made multiple six figures in 2018, and I STILL have to get out there and sell on the regular. And oh yeah – business is STILL messy for me.
When I decided to start sharing more about my income (speaking of messy), I ALSO decided to share what went in to this. And what STILL goes in to this.
I’m not willing to share the highlight reel without also sharing the messy behind-the-scenes. Because, that serves NO ONE.
Case in point: when this post first went live in my FB community, I was driving through the Mojave Desert on my way to Vegas for a long, sunny, unplugged weekend away. I have a team that supports my business while I’m away and fun money to spend on things like Blackjack and room service (I seriously love me some Blackjack).
AND YET – I had 2 seriously stressful things go down in my biz last week (more on that later) that caused me to shed tears and to lose sleep. Messy, y’all. Point is – you don’t get to escape the messy. You’re never done with the messy. You don’t get to up-level your way out of having a human experience.
But you do learn to ride out the messy more easily. And not make yourself wrong for it. And not let it slow you down. In fact, you grow and expand FASTER when you embrace the messy and soak up its lessons.
And that thing about still having to sell in your business? Yep – that’s a thing too.
Do I have more clients coming to me via referrals or with less effort on my part? Yep. But I still work my sales process every dang week. I’m still out there actively selling because I believe it’s my job to do so, and because I KNOW it’s what continues to grow my business.
Moral of the story here is that selling and messiness are always and forever going to be a part of business. So let’s get down to the business of rocking both! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the messy being a normal part of business! How do you deal with a messy, hard day in your biz? And anyone else like me and have weeks that are both rough with a capital R and amazingly beautiful at the same time? Comment below and let me know!
