4 things I HATE to see in business

Show Notes

I can't bite my tongue anymore!

There are four things I repeatedly see in business, and today I'm going to have a little rant about them.

I hate them, so let's get right into it!

#1. People choosing the wrong business model for their personality. 

It's time to set up your business so that it works for you and your personality, not the other way around. 

We need to give ourselves permission to be who we truly are. And permission to design our businesses in a way that's easy for us. Often that's such a big taboo. You may have been told that you must do business a certain way or work really hard to make money. 

And it's not true!

#2. People thinking there's one way to do business. 

Even if everyone in your industry is doing it a particular way, it doesn't mean you have to.

If the last few years showed us anything, it was that businesses that we thought could only be one way could pivot on a dime. 

Listen, you can negotiate anything! 

#3. People quitting their businesses because of perceived failure.

Being in business is tough sometimes, right? You're going to have some failures. You'll have unhappy customers and copycats. You'll have broken links and unsubscribes. 

These are just customary rites of passage. If you release a book, eventually, you'll get a bad review. 

Embarrassing experiences might be part of business, but there are no real failures in business. 

#4. People resisting ease in their business.

Listen, I've done this too. Heck, I still do it. I pride myself on being a hard worker and having a strong work ethic. 

But it's okay for you to make money doing things that you love and that are easy for you. So you need to shift your mindset around hard work and money because it's allowed to feel good. Business is allowed to be easy and profitable. 

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • Why there are no real failures in business
  • How to design a business that fits your personality EXACTLY
  • The mindset work you need to do around refunds
  • How you can allow things to be easy
  • How to take the positives from a failed launch
