Creative Shop Talk with Wendy Batten
Are you keeping yourself small? Are you DIY’ing your entire business? I was.
Entrepreneurs have that mindset that we can figure it out ourselves. That’s just the way we are wired. Throw in a creative spirit and drive – and well – we want to DIY it all.
But in this episode, I want to share with you how you can think a little bit differently and create a massive impact on your business!
Recently, I made the revelation that I was keeping myself small in an area of my business I wanted to grow. Over the past six months, I have been tweaking my website. When I had time, in between everything else. I know HOW, I just kept pushing it to the back burner. I found that I was frustrated that we were not making headway on that side of my business – and it was costing me time, money, and stress because I was trying to DIY it all…
Then I was reminded of a great book: Who Not How by Dan Sullivan reiterates this mantra: “Just because we can doesn’t mean we should.” WHY was I doing this to myself? Which meant it was time to hire a team to help me with my website. I knew the ROI (return of investment) was going to be great. So I hired out and we’re almost done with the entire revamp of a new website in less than 2 weeks.
Those things in your business that you are forcing yourself to do, are out of your zone of genius, are really complicated, or are put off week after week… start thinking about hiring an expert that can help you take those tasks off your plate. Help you LEAPFROG into the next level. This goes for coaching too. If you are stuck, get unstuck and re-motivated, and back on track with the right support. LEAPFROG.
Listen as I discuss various shop owner stories and how they added team members to their business and the success it brought them. They stopped trying to DIY their entire business and hired people to help them accelerate.
