Got a fresh kick of honesty right in the ass last Friday. 🦵🍑
I was driving home from one errand or another, and I realized something:
I’ve launched LOTS of services, LOTS of products, and LOTS of digital trainings. 💻
And yet… my revenue’s never been quite where it needs to be so I can reach my personal financial goals. 👎
And it sucks. 😭
It’s a terrible feeling to know you’re putting the work in that’s worth millions of dollars, but those millions of dollars aren’t showing up in your bank account.
So what is my self-sabotage that holds me back from making massive amounts of money happen?
Exactly what I mentioned before: doing too god damn many things too quickly.
In the last 12 months alone, I’ve done:
- lots of podcast episodes
- launched NINE NEW & DIFFERENT digital products
- re-vamped my 1:1 coaching services
- started offering a done-for-you website & email funnel service
- gotten REALLY into selling my 1:1 services on LinkedIn
- started a complete course & funnel re-vamp for my copywriting business
- made an AMAZING Pinterest profile from scratch, and then abandoned it
- a huge website re-vamp
- etc, etc, etc.
Whereas if I’d narrowed in and focused on just ONE of those things, my revenue would have gone through the roof.
The ultimate thing it boils down to is having an amazing idea, and expecting it to gain traction and sell A LOT immediately. And then when it doesn’t sell 50 copies on day one (which is an exaggeration, but you get the point), I get bored or antsy or nervous about money making & feel I need to move on to the next thing.
And sure, I sell some…
But it’s almost like when one idea isn’t immediately paying my bills, I move on to the next one, making it more elaborate than the last, because surely *that* would work better.
But in reality, if I’d just fucking stuck with one thing or two things, I’d be making a lot more money.
I wouldn’t have as many “cool” offers: but would that really matter if I’m not selling that many of my “cool” offers anyway?
Don’t get me wrong: I’ve got no plans to get rid of any of my services or products, but I AM going to put a stop to producing, producing, producing, and harness a focus more towards selling, selling, selling.
It’s always been a dream of mine to have an automated digital product sales funnel that pays my bills for me, so I’m still going to work on the Write A Better Website course re-vamp and funnel creation until my deadline of March 12.
I’ll get that going, and aside from that, I’ll be selling 1:1 coaching in my LinkedIn DMs for Business Bitch. If someone doesn’t want or need my 1:1 coaching and they’re a good fit for one of my digital products, I’ll sell them that instead.
But I’m not gonna be creating anything new for a good little while.
And that’s it.
I’m getting this self-sabotaging habit under control, and my income is gonna thank me for it. I’m so excited.
If you need help staying on track, feel free to DM me on LinkedIn or Instagram with what your self-sabotaging habit is, and we’ll figure out ways to get you over it. (Just mention this blog post so I’ve got a little bit of context on what you’re talking about. 😉)
Talk to you soon! 😘
Cheers to stopping our sabotages & making boat loads of money 🥂 📈 💵,
