Only Post When You Have Something to Say

DK_10-768x768.jpg

I am going to go against the commonly prescribed method for attracting clients in Facebook groups of posting 3-5 times a day every day.

If you have something valuable to offer that frequently, then posting is a great idea.

If you are feeling external pressure and just following some arbitrary marketing suggestion without having any strategy for creating content that provides substance or value and connects you to your ideal clients and instead are posting constantly but providing either fluff, information that is not on brand, or just quotes.

It may be time to take a step back and evaluate what your ideal clients need to hear, how you can serve them, and if 1 or 2 posts per day is what it takes to allow you to make the impact you are desiring then honor what feels aligned for you.

I am a big believer in quality over quantity as long as you are consistently visible and giving value. I have never followed .the 3-5 post per day guideline and I have had fairly rapid success in my own business.

Trust your own intuition in what feels right for you and follow your own path to success.

Most Entrepreneurs Are Unconsciously Repelling Success

DK_9-768x768.jpg

Something that I realized this weekend while at a training put on by a big name coach is that many many entrepreneurs are just as afraid of success as failure.

If you are not doing regular inner work, this fear could show up in your business as sneaky self-sabotage in the form of procrastination, overwhelm, inconsistent income or other forms of resistance like unexpected expenses or tech issues that may feel like it is coming from outside you but is really just a reflection of your beliefs.

So if you are noticing that your reality is not currently reflecting what you are saying you want and have been setting intentions to create in your business start to examine what your underlying beliefs as they could be holding you back from manifesting everything you want in your life and business.

For example if you have a belief that if you make more money more expenses will just come up and it will go out as quickly as it came in then you will unconsciously repel creating more income in your business.

Or if you have a goal of making 30k a month in your business but secretly you are afraid of the things you would have to do to make it or if you have the systems in place to sustain it, you will also consciously or unconsciously play small.

This is why the inner work is so important. If the thought of having a seven figure year this year scares you more than excites you, it reflects there is work to be done.

Many people believe they want slow success but trying to slow it down can actually repel it all together.

Do whatever you need to do in order to take the training wheels off, let go of needing to control the timing and be willing to play full out in your business.

Your Integrity is Everything

Small consistent daily actions leads to success in business

For example meditating for 15 mins a day

Mindset work 5 mins a day

And taking 25 mins a day every day to write a post, offer value and engage a little in Facebook groups can lead to growth for your business

The key is consistency and sustainability, in my experience it is better to write one good post every day then to write 20 posts one day and then disappear for the next 6 days.

Is 3 posts a day even better?

Yes if they are all quality; but if that is too overwhelming start where you are. Find what you can commit to and do it consistently. If that becomes easy do a little more.

Find your personal balance. Stay visible. Have a practice to keep your vibration high and your mindset aligned

Forgive yourself if you miss a few days. You are human.

Then get back on track sooner than later

What are your own daily success practices?

Love,

Dana

Testing Niche Viability

DK_3-768x768.jpg

Good Ways to Test if You Have a Clear and Viable Niche as a Coach, Healer, or Intuitive
Having a really clear niche can really help you attract clients much easier in your business.

The definition that I use for niche is the particular problem or problems you solve for a certain group of people (your ideal clients). I look at ideal client as generally having many things in common with you and being a few steps behind you in whatever area you are working with them on.

Ironically, the more narrow and targeted you can get your niche the easier it is for people to understand that you are the expert in that area.

It took me a really long time to truly narrow my own niche down and once I was able to get clear my business grew extremely quickly and I began attracting the clients that I really love working with on a regular basis.

In my case I am a business coach but I am also a psychic and an energy healer and my specialization is using all of my gifts in helping my clients overcome blocks, raise their vibration, align with their perfect niche and to create packages and programs that they love to sell and most importantly their ideal clients love to buy.

The problem I am solving is helping conscious women entrepreneurs (coaches, healers, intuitives, creatives) make more money in their business by being aligned in all of the above-mentioned ways.

If you are unsure if you currently have a niche at all or if your niche is going to really work for you here a few ways you can use to test this:

1. Ask yourself if you would invest in the services you are offering right now or would you have invested in them in the past?

Since we often have a lot in common with our ideal clients this is a great way to determine if our niche is solving a problem that people are willing to invest in solving or that people actually know that they have.

2. Have you clearly identified the ultimate outcomes your clients will receive through working with you? Although results are never guaranteed, if the general outcomes are not clear then your ideal clients will have a difficult time understand why they need your services.

3. Can you think of at least 50 people that have the problem that you solve and could be potential clients? This element is really important because you do not need thousands of potential clients but knowing that there are people out there that do need what you offer is a good barometer in testing if your niche is marketable.

I hope this was helpful to anyone that may still be struggling to clarify their niche. If you have any questions around this subject please feel free to ask.

How to Sincerely Welcome Success into Life

Recently I have noticed a big trend of people either protesting the prevalence of overnight success stories or defending them.  There was a controversial article about it written yesterday. Here is my take on it.  Sharing ones success story if it is true is inspirational because lets face it, even if our why is to make a huge impact on the world we are still in business to make money. Some people have become successful very quickly and if they are feeling aligned with their purpose and money is flowing in we should all be inspired by their journeys.  Just because you haven’t had overnight success does not mean you won’t be successful. Everyone has their own pace. Bashing former clients to make oneself look better never works because if you talk poorly about your past clients people assume you could also do it to them and wont want to work with you. There really is not competition if you are truly being yourself (there is nobody out there who can do exactly what you do). Your people are waiting for only you.  I still feel that sometimes there is too much focus on the money and not enough focus on the sense of purpose and contribution that we also crave (at least I do).  Making money is a natural side effect of being in alignment with your soul purpose, using your gifts, commitment to service and owning your value (often in the process mindset shifts are necessary too).  It’s ok to talk about our successes and we do not want to encourage people to only share their moments of weakness and not their moments of glory. We are all human and life when played full out contains highs and lows and part of authenticity and vulnerability is being able to share both. Lets open our hearts to receive each other with openness and support.  Love,  Dana
