Running a business isn’t for the faint of heart. I’m sure you can relate to that because as a business owner, you’ve had your fair share of challenges. Maybe you’re just starting out or maybe you’ve been in business for a while — either way — you need support because we cannot do it on our own forever. I’m blessed to have a team to count on but it wasn’t always that way. I remember clearly the days of trying to wear all of the hats it takes to run a business (it was a little scary and stressful).
When I started investing in myself, things changed. I received valuable business information, marketing support, coaching and training and it made all of the difference. I am careful to weigh my options and I’ve been really lucky that I’ve invested in people, products and services that deliver what they promise (I’m hearing some grumbling that isn’t always the case for everyone and that is disheartening). Some of the people I’ve invested in working with are Lorrie Morgan-Ferrero, John Carlton, Bill Glazer, James Roche, Ali Brown and a handful of spiritual mentors and advisors, too. Each time I’ve made the decision to hire a coach or mentor I view it as an investment in myself and my business. I feel that it’s worth my time and investment to choose the people, products and training to move myself and my business forward. I am always careful to keep my own vision and mission at the forefront of what I do (especially when coaching with others) because it’s part of WHY I’m in business.
I’m guessing you’re passionate about what you do, too. I’m sure you really want to market what you have to offer in a genuine way that resonates with your ideal clients to make a difference. AND, I wonder what kind of support you really need to move forward? I don’t believe that cookie cutter programs are very effective and it saddens me to see people imitating others instead of shining their own brilliance into the world.
About a month ago I reached out to the Write On Creative Community (the savvy group of people who subscribe to Manyon’s Musings and keep in touch with me via my free community) to find out what they are really interested in and how I can best be of service. There was a resounding request for training and coaching directly from me and I took the requests to heart. The candid feedback about what is wanted and needed was extremely helpful.
Some are struggling with website woes and more appropriately “website shame” (read more about that here).Others want to get more publicity and exposure. And there’s also a big interest in content strategy and how to manage everything you must create (copywriting) to sustain and promote business online. All are VERY valid issues.
In fact, I’ve decided to address some of it via FREE calls to my community. Starting next week I’m going to offer No Chit! Just Chat ~ Cut to the Chase Conversations about Copywriting and Marketing. The calls are only available to members of the Write On Creative Community. You can become a member for free by visiting http:// www.writeoncreative.com
So, now, I’m asking you what are you worth? (not as a person, I know you are truly valuable and here to make a BIG difference). Maybe a better question is what is it worth to you to get the training, coaching and support that you need as a business owner (who also has a second job — the role of a marketer)?
