In working with solo-preneurs, I’ve noticed how difficult it can be to Stay Positive. This is especially true early in your business when you are still struggling with your messaging, pricing, etc. and are repeatedly hearing “No / No thank you” to your sales pitch. It’s difficult to adjust to this and keep a positive attitude.
That’s why this week, I’m answering a question from our solo-preneurs related to Staying Positive.
Are there any “tried & true” things I can do to help get ”unstuck” when I get tired of the daily grind, rejection, and hard work it takes to grow my business?
First and foremost, YOU own the desire to be an Entrepreneur. Is this something you really want to do, yes or no? If the answer is a resounding yes, then great!
If you have the desire to be an Entrepreneur, and you’re struggling with the daily grind, rejection and hard work, it’s highly likely that you are having an issue in how you look at Sales.
Too often Entrepreneurs get stuck focusing on sales. They don’t like feeling as if they “have to” sell, and sell at lot, to bring in the money they need to keep their business afloat. They are stuck in the Mindset that “to be successful at sales, I need to be a pushy high pressure sales person”.
This is so far from the truth.
Always remember, desperation doesn’t attract clients. If you are tired and stuck, it’s highly likely that you need to focus on taking a step back, for a moment, and making yourself top priority for a while.
Self-care is critical for all Entrepreneurs. This is especially true, when you are feeling stuck and burnt out, yet still have a strong desire and why that motivates you to continue to do what you love.
As part of your self-care, you need to consider:
- Who should you be partnering with? Who can you establish a relationship with that would form a Win-Win? Who can really help you catapult your business forward in a big way?
- What are your two or three stretch goals that can really move your business forward. No more than three. Focus ONLY on those.
