Business, Money & Authentic Success

What’s the key to earning money authentically? Authentic Abundance for me is more of an inner game than and outer action based game.

Earning money authentically means that you seek to be paid well for expressing who you are. If you don’t care about fulfillment and contribution in your work then just making money could be more about hard work and taking action.

Authentic abundance brings your core individuality into aligment with how you make money. It means that you care about the service you offer and about the people you serve. It means that your work is aligned with who you are.

Making money in a way that makes your heart sing is authentic abundance.

Money is attracted to two things: joyful enthusiasm and confidence.

I keep hearing from clients that they never have enough time to do everything that they fear they must do in order to be successful.

Startling realization$$$$ – One only has to act and do things enough to maintain a high level of confidence and enthusiasm because that’s what attracts money. Good enough is often good enough if YOU feel good about your efforts.

Money doesn’t necessarily come as a result of any one method or action but as a result of how a variety of actions make you feel. That’s the point of massive inspired action.  Abundance comes alongside of your actions because of the vibes you feel and emit.

What work inspires you to be most enthusiastic and confident while doing it?

It’s only the engagement of the most aligned work that always brings forth both confidence and enthusiasm. When your work fits you are fired up for it.  Eagerness and willingness to follow-through is not so much in question when you are fired up.

Making money authentically comes more readily, by being real, while taking meaningful, sincere action.

These things have worked for me:

1). Use marketing and selling methods that you are personally eager to engage in.  Do it your way.  Lead with your unique and natural strengths and preferences.

I have a current coaching client who never enjoyed in-person networking. She would often schedule 3-4 opportunities weekly on her calendar and then beat herself up because she only attended one of them. We made an agreement that she quit scheduling and attending networking events all together.  Her time has increased and her income has remained the same.

Why? It’s because she now honors herself by only engaging marketing that she is eager to do.

2). Sell products/services that you feel proud to talk about and inspired to market because you deeply care.

Which formula works best for you?

Inspiration + Eagerness = Willingness
Discipline + Avoidance = Resistance

3). You must have conversations to sell things. How can you create more conversations? You really only have two choices.

a). You must contact prospective clients with a direct phone call … or
b). Put together a combination of traditional and unique methods that you are eager to do.

Authentic abundance will start flowing for you when bring your heart into your marketing. To do so be sure to continually ask these focusing questions:

1). Whom do I care about serving the most?
2). How can I most effectively serve them in a way that brings me alive?
3). How can I give them what they need, to feel better about what they are doing or where they are going?
4). How can I give it to them in a way that they can recognize as something that they want?

I’d be honored to guide you to your authentic money-making success.  Delay no more.  Your heart wants you to come alive.

Courageous Individuality

Thank goodness this isn’t the norm today but this was true for girls of my generation. It used to be, if you asked an 11-year-old preteen what she wanted on her pizza, she decisively said, pepperoni. But ask her just four years later at 15 and she’d be more inclined to respond. “Oh I don’t know, what do you want?”

Cultural pressure to fit in is a powerful conditioner that affects all of us.

It’s takes a lot of courage to stand tall, speak up and boldly act as an individual.

But expressing as an individual is your only chance if you want to create an authentic business with sustainable prosperity and fulfillment. Conformity is not a selling point. Being average is dull.

Yet the truth is, it’s far easier to just go along with the crowd and follow a system created by someone else, than it is to boldly and authentically speak your mind.

So what. Who said easy and comfortable wins? Hyped up marketers pitching systems tell lies of easy money and big riches. If it sounds too good to be true it’s not either right? So why do we fall for those lies?

I know why. We fall for them because it’s safer not to stand out. It’s safer to hide behind someone else’s creation than to expose our own vulnerable individuality.

But these, more and more often, systems are collapsing and remarkable individuals are succeeding.

Money is attracted to confidence and I think it might be time for all of us to take a look at the path less followed.

What if your greatest potential source of confidence was your expressed individuality?

What if your greatest way to make more money was also your greatest way to make a difference?

Spiritually evolved communities have been announcing a new age of consciousness for years now. It seems to me that we are willing to lend our financial and emotional support to those who create authentically.

I hope you can see that this is your time to serve humanity through individual expression. I’ve realized that a true calling can be started in a much smaller way than I’d originally recommended. To follow your calling you can take the big leap off the cliff or barely stick your toe in the water.

In fact a more prudent entry point for many could be starting smaller. That’s why I’ve been creating a product that combines the three most powerful concepts I have experience of.

1). The Supportive Accountability of Coaching

2). The Authentic Aliveness of True Calling

3). The Inspired Productivity of Completion

 

You can’t save the day by sitting on the sidelines. I hope you agree that it’s your time to push all of your chips to the center of the table and bet big on your individuality.

Make A Fresh Start

Delivering on a small business strategy requires fresh thinking so that our mindset increases possibilities and encourages new connections. We want to see things in new ways so that everything from our decisions to our actions is new and different from what produced previous results. Sometimes the best option is to wipe the damn slate clean and begin anew.

Work an Inspired Small Business Strategy

You are taking the risk by building your business for you. This process works well if you are willing to work in your own name by virtue of your own uniqueness.

Increased compensation is your just reward. Feel good about that. As an entrepreneur you are creating value from an idea. Entrepreneurship is the most honorable profession because we pay the bills to make everything else possible. Without commerce, the exchange of money for business products and services, we would live in a very disorganized and boring world.

Come on now! You know you’ve been pumped up about your business ideas before. You know what original inspiration feels like. As a self-employed small business owner it’s time to treat your business like a business and bring your ideal business vision to life. Now is your time to connect that inspired energy to deliberately chosen strategic actions.

Decide on your inspired small business strategy by taking your vision and breaking it down into objectives. Then break those objectives down into projects, programs and strategic actions that are each designed to make the objectives manifest.

Now is the time to zoom in on the specifics. Here’s a simple process to work each objective.
1). Specifically what am I looking to accomplish?
2). What are all the actions I could take to accomplish this objective?
3). What measurable outcomes will prove that I’ve accomplished it?
4). Act, observe and adjust.
5). What worked well about taking these actions?
6). What adjustments can I make now to get better results?

Keep focused on your big picture vision, as a small business strategy. By all means, don’t sit on your ass. Read what Kathy Hendershot-Hurdat has to say about following through.
