Using Connection & Support to Build Your Business

Connecting with like minded supportive women can help you build your business and bring greater joy to your life.

Running your own successful business takes hard work, strategy, connection and support from a team. Your team doesn’t necessarily have to be on your payroll though.

Connection and Support can come from friends and colleagues as you build your business

In early September, I spent the day with one of my entrepreneurial coaching clients. Tina left her corporate job as a Buyer to launch her own boutique. She now owns found by t, a shop that sells Vintage one-of-a-kind finds along with her own personal designs.

Tina’s getting ready to launch her website and I was one of the ‘real life models’ who got all ‘dolled’ up and played dress-up for the day. The pictures taken will grace her website and launch her business in a bigger way.

It takes a lot to launch a successful photo shoot! Many amazing women answered the call that day to support Tina and build her business including

  • Hair Stylist
  • Makeup Artist
  • Photogragher
  • Models

I was in my glory! I love talking to women. Hearing their concerns and then finding ways to help them monetize their dreams makes my life worth living. The Make-up Artist, Hair Stylist and Photographer I met at the Found by t photo shoot all told me the same thing.

They long for a new and better way to make a living.

After years of working to successfully launch people into work that feeds both the soul and the bank account, I have found that for many….

Think of it this way. When you have done anything for a long period of time, it becomes difficult to see another way. Imagine a dirt road where years of travel down the same path have carved deep narrow ruts into the hard earth. Trying to change course and steer out of the rut is difficult. Slipping back in is a real possibility. That’s why so many stay stuck.

Take heart! All of you out there with the entrepreneurial spirit are a special breed. When you get stuck, you tend to find another way.

You are a true leader. You may not be comfortable thinking of yourself in this way, but you have lead yourself to create a business that didn’t exist before.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a multi-million dollar corporation or an Avon business. As you scale that business, you create jobs, and in turn lead others. (Many of my clients are also mothers….if that isn’t leadership, I don’t know what is!)

My client Tina created work for others as she directed the photo shoot. To do so, she had to step out of her comfort zone and take the lead. As a result, her business is on the road to higher revenues and retirement is not such a scary thought for her.

It’s such a beautiful thing to know you can create your own revenue doing what you love. You can leave the fear of working for another behind. After all, why should you expend your precious life energy to make someone else wealthy?

Making entrepreneurial dreams successful needs the kind of support that leads to a perspective shift. The same can be said for any success in life.
