Leading Your Business To Your Vision

You’re here:

  • After a super productive 18 hour day the last thing you remember seeing as you collapse into bed is it’s 1 a.m. on the clock.
  • At 3 a.m. you’re startled awake because you just remembered you forgot to reply to your client that contacted you over 24 hours ago; oh and you forgot to add the worksheet to the membership site and that means you didn’t respond to the comment posted in the private group asking about the worksheet.
  • Too fatigued to act, you crash back to a stress filled slumber until you force yourself out of bed at 6 a.m. to face another 18 hour work day.

Your GOAL:

  • You end your workday at 4 p.m.
  • After a soothing tea and a meditation session, you relax in bed as your body falls asleep at 11 p.m. on the clock.
  • At 6 a.m. you wake up and write down a few strategies you thought of that will definitely move your business forward and get you to your next level of success.
  • At 9 a.m. you begin your coaching call sessions.
  • At Noon, you break for lunch.
  • You spend the afternoon mapping out and developing your business strategies.

ATTENTION: Business Coaches and Marketing Consultants
Want to SUPER-CHARGE your SUCCESS????
“My business is running me. I’m wasting my time on the things I don’t want to do.”
Your New “Secret Weapon” Will Help You Do Less With More Focus.

Achieving your next level of success is more elusive than ever before…after all, you’re not just the owner you are the…​

  • CEO
  • Operations Manager
  • Marketing Manager
  • Human Resources Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Product Launch Manager
  • Client Manager

And holding on to all those roles just sucks the time right out of your day.

​But, it’s not just the insane amount of stress you face …

​It’s also your clients …

​The stress of managing everything in your business distracts you from being fully present with your clients.

​And if you can’t focus on your clients, your clients will walk away and they won’t refer you.

These challenges explain why you can’t afford to let your business run you.

You need to run your business.

So, how do you do it all?
And SUPER-CHARGE your success?
And live your life – your real life?

Because of Lara’s management, now, I get to do what I love doing.

What I’m about to tell you could fast-track your success, put more money in your pocket, and ultimately, change the future of your business.

The #1 Skill that Leads to Business Success

In the years I’ve spent managing six-figure coaching and consulting businesses, I’ve learned that the business owner’s ability to delegate is what sets high-performing businesses apart from their competitors. PERIOD.

Success isn’t about flashy websites or even a well-organized corporate structure.

​Although managing everything in your business has gotten you this far, you can’t advance to your next level of success if you keep going this way.

Even though you have the perfect solution for your clients, if you can’t give them a near-flawless experience, your sales will tank.

​Take the solopreneur in the holistic healing industry – who hit the six-figure milestone all on her own.

​Know what she did to SUPER-CHARGE her success to confidently land her business on the path to seven figures?

​Delegate.

She recognized the value of doing less with more focus.

Nobody knows your business better than you do. Nobody.

​But what do you delegate? When do you delegate? Whom do you delegate to?

Well, if you’re like most solopreneurs, you’ve probably tried to delegate small, one-time tasks to a virtual assistant.

​And what happened?

​While you were able to move items off your to-do list, you also gained more work – in the form of management.

​A virtual assistant is your implementor. They do what you need them to do as long as you are telling them what to do.

​They are an asset to your business and if you don’t have one, you definitely need one.

​​While a virtual assistant will help with tasks, they lack the right management experience and knowledge that reduces your stress of running the business.

​So where does that leave you?

​Feeling frustrated about the time and money you’re investing while you are still bogged down and aren’t able to propel your business forward faster.

Introducing a Productivity Initiative

Create a Target Board

Measuring productivity is a vital component of any initiative to increase productivity levels. Communicating targets to staff members can actually prove to be a useful tool in facilitating an increase in productivity. Without clear and visible objectives, employees have no reason to improve their productivity. What is more, it is unfair to expect employees to guess what their targets are! Creating and updating target boards on a regular basis and ensuring that they are visible to staff (through a suitable medium) can contribute toward developing an objective-based working environment within which increased productivity can be clearly documented, and employees can be rewarded or held accountable for their performance.

Tips for building confidence

How to Build Confidence
As long as I’ve worked with, trained, and improved sales people, the number one focus for success has been their confidence. More important than any sales tactic is how each sales person feels about themselves. Simply put, people sell to their level of esteem. Here, then, are key areas to improve your team’s confidence and esteem:
Knowing you: Sales people who want to improve their mediocre performance must begin by understanding themselves.
Knowing the company: And by knowing the company, they must know the people. One of the key areas of team building is knowing and embracing the people around them everyday.
Knowing the customer: Author and businessman, Harvey McKay, wrote a list of 64 things you should know about your client to really be effective
Knowing the product: Become an expert on your product.
Set your vision: Set a vision of where you want to go. When anyone has a burning vision of what they want out of life, small set backs remain small.
