Is it really possible to get clients & have a wildly profitable business without acting like an extrovert?
You bet it is.
I’ve done it, and I’ve helped coaches of all kinds do the same.
But, back before I figured out how to show up consistently & make the most of my time online through refined messaging, I tried the hustle-n-grind, tied to my phone, obsessing over my business, desperate for it to just WORK ALREADY thing for a long freaking time.
It nearly ruined my life.
I was so exhausted from the hustle and stifling my need for rest that there were days that I wanted to crawl under the covers and close my eyes and never wake up.
Sometimes, I look back and I’m not sure why I kept going. But I did.
And I remember the moment I decided that I was going earn $100k as a freelancer and I was going to do it MY WAY.
I was sitting at my desk crying and wanting to vomit at the thought of doing more cold outreach and more me-me-me content.
At that point, I’d worked as a social media manager for 8 years, and I KNEW how to build an audience and how to write great content. I knew how to sell on social. I just didn’t trust that it would work for me.
But the things my coaches and mentors wanted me to do weren’t working either, and I figured that I had nothing to lose. So I went all-in on my new plan.
And by all-in, I mean, I committed to working on my business 2 hours a day and no more, and trusting that it was all working.
I prioritized down time. I prioritized rest. I prioritized getting out into nature. I prioritized serving my existing clients as well as I possibly could.
I prioritized following the plan I created, showing up consistently, and not getting back into hustle mode when I didn’t see results in the first two weeks.
Because it did take longer than 2 weeks. I wasn’t an overnight success.
From the day I made that commitment until the day I was fully booked out was about 4 months. At the time, it felt like an eternity. Looking back, it’s just a blip in the radar.
That was three years ago. I’ve made some changes to my business model. I’ve made some changes to my strategy – turns out I LOVE teaching and being on camera. Who knew?
I’ve made some changes to the specifics of what I’m doing, but I’ve never deviated from the basics – show up consistently, build trust with my audience, create really great content, sell daily, & trust that it’s working.
I can’t promise you overnight success, but I can promise you that it’s possible to build your business the way you want to. You don’t need to hustle, you don’t need to be available 24/7, you don’t need to force yourself on strangers.
You need a couple hours a day and solid plan to follow so that you show up consistently.
