One of my mentors told me years ago, chasing money is one of the biggest mistakes people make in business. I was told to do what I love and the money will come. Treat clients with respect and run a "quality business" and the money will follow.
Many business people are frustrated because their focus is on making money and it's not coming fast enough. I know, because when I opened my beauty school in Alabama, I had an image in my mind of how it would be and the money would flow into the business very fast.
I didn't consider a lot of the "hidden costs" involved with opening a school and going through the accreditation process. There were other monies involved with obtaining certifications, consultants, accountants who audits beauty schools, etc. Luckily, I received great advice along the way and kept my cost down and broke even my first year in business. I was profitable each year afterwards.
In previous posts and on our monthly conference calls (www.tonilovegroup.com), I stress the importance of surrounding yourself with positive people and those who are smarter in various areas of life and business. This advice was given to me and has been a large contribution to my success. .
Not all the information is going to be applicable to your business model, but, take what you can use and apply it. Correct information combined with passion will lead to success. Stay passionate about your business to the degree where is doesn't feel like work and watch the money flow into it.
At that point, you will feel an ease about your business, instead of being anxious, worried, and frustrated when it appears as if nothing is going on. It will take time to reach that level of calmness, but, if you stay focused on running a good, quality business, it will come sooner than you think.
When you reach that level of calmness, you won't have to chase the money, because it will be chasing YOU!:-)
Create a Better Day!
