Decide to Sprout Your Business
Make a Committed Decision
The first step we need to take to construct a booming business is to make a decision to do so! I see many entrepreneurs jumping into the profession with an immediate focus on how to get clients, how to make money and how to market before they have fully committed to having a flourishing business to begin with.
A Definition of Decide
The word decision is derived from the Latin root decidere, which means to cut off from. By making a decision, we are cutting off all other possibility. According to the definition, if we make a decision to succeed as a business owner, it means that we are cutting off the very possibility of not succeeding. Isn’t that powerful? This is the type of committed decision we have to make about our business.
Unfortunately, plenty of entrepreneurs are “trying” to grow their business; however, they have not made a committed decision to succeed as a businesswoman. They are feeling things out, seeing what happens, hoping to attract clients. These are not statements of real commitment or determination. I hope that you do not allow this to happen to you. The first step to go from “trying” to “succeeding” is a decision.
I decided to do whatever it takes to build a winning business and make a meaningful impression upon the world. I am committing my greatest effort to build a successful business once and for all, by treating my business with the priority and importance it deserves. I also honor my commitments to myself to do what it takes to succeed.
Was it difficult? Heck, yes. It still is oftentimes. I did not know how to successfully launch and grow a small business, even though I thought that having a MBA with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship would make it easy peasy. You name it, I tried it. Audio, video, teleseminars, webinars, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, workshops, landing pages, opt-in boxes, autoresponders, special offers, informational products. My head was spinning! Through trial and error, a ton of hard work and tears, I am now growing a large contact list and my business is profitable.
I provide the women on my email list with simple activities to help them launch and grow their business one step at a time. These steps save them tons of time, money and frustration. If you would like that too, jump onto the email list and start working in your business with purpose and intention rather than overwhelm and pandemonium. Simply send a blank email to email@example.com.
What powerful decision can you make today that inspires and motivates you? Remember, this is a critical piece of the foundation upon which your booming business is built.
