Yesterday I got a message from a woman who wants to attend Power Up for Profits Live! who said, “I’m 100% committed to growing my business, but can’t afford to get the $197 refundable deposit ticket.”
What this means is this, the woman puts down a small deposit that she gets back when she arrives at the event. She even lives within a few minute drive of the event location.
She received the invitation to attend from someone she knows who bought a ticket that came with a second one for a friend.
So, she’s 100% committed with lots of restrictions.
Let’s get a reality check on this. Here are the facts:
1. She wants to grow her business
2. She says she is 100% committed
3. She won’t put down a small amount of money to hold her seat knowing she will get her money back.
She even said, “I know the event is exactly what I need and wonder if I can get a seat with no deposit?”
Apparently, what she feels is 100% committed and what I KNOW is 100% committed are two different things.
Here’s the deal, if she can’t see her way clear of putting down a small deposit that she will get back, she is NOT going to be willing to invest in other things for her business. It’s that simple.
I’m not going to beat around the bush here to coddle someone into thinking that running a business doesn’t take some risk. I would be doing others a great disservice by pretending otherwise.
I’m not sure where people get misled into believing that growing a business does not require time, money and effort. It does. And if you’re not willing to put “skin in the game” you’re NOT 100% committed.
You can argue that point until the cows come home, but it’s likely by you holding on to that belief you are also holding on to your business floundering.
And here’s the deal… some people should not go into business for themselves. They are not cut out for all that comes with the process.
Ask any successful entrepreneur what it takes to build a business and you will find a common thread. You have to treat a business like a business. And that means you have to invest time, money and energy.
Otherwise, as my business coach says, “You have a hobby not a business.”
Are you someone who is 100% committed and ready to transform your business? If you said YES! then you’re ready for a super event.
In a few days, some amazing entrepreneurs are coming in from around the United States and Canada for Power Up for Profits Live! in Phoenix, Arizona.
This is a three day transformational event. And… I want to make this as easy as possible for you to attend. I have 4 complimentary (refundable deposit) tickets left.
This is on a first come basis. Once these are gone, they’re gone.
