Today has been a manic but amazing day! The main reason for this is that I spent over 3 hours with a friend who also happens to be an amazing marketer and we spoke about my business and how I can be more proactive in my approach for promoting the business and gaining more clients. The fire in my belly for my business has always burnt bright but often other things take my focus and I get distracted.
We did a number of activities including one which was about my story and why people might buy from me. After filling the page with my qualification, knowledge and experience she quoted – “why aren’t knocking down your door to work with you, you are amazing?” This was lovely to hear of course but the main reason this isn’t happening is my self-belief, or I should say my lack of self-belief! And because my friend knows me so well this is what she said too.
This is one of the main areas I want to work on during this transformation year as it’s something that I’ve been dogged with all my life and I can probably tell the exact reason why but ultimately knowing why isn’t necessarily going to help me overcome it.
And I’m very good at hiding it too, most of what I do as a business and now as a lecturer I am able to put on a “mask” and perform so to speak and this means I can hide stuff!!
I’ve often wondered what my life might be like if I truly believed in myself and often wished I could see myself through others eyes so I could see what they see in me that I can’t see in myself.
Cor, that all went a bit deep!
I finished off the day catching up with another friend over dinner and now I’m totally spent so off to the land of nod as another full on day tomorrow.
