It’s really what it’s all about isn’t it?!
The key to all of our success is about the connections we make and how we show up and serve each other.
I have had the joy of traveling for many years, connecting with business owners from all over the world. I have always said that I am not very good at the “chit chat” conversation. I actually prefer to have a meaningful and deep conversation about something that matters to you. And it is what has allowed me to grow my business to where it is today. Now we are ready to grow and in order to do so I need to be able to learn a new skill in relationship building. One of my mentors often says to me “but Sue, we need more foreplay”.
I don’t take lightly that the topic I have the privilege of discussing with people is one of the most emotionally charged topics, money.
I know that money is one of the greatest teachers for all of us and because it touches every area of our life I know that when we are not having a sense of ease with it that there is something much deeper going on.
So, as we continue to look at ways to grow our company so we can be of service to more people in the area of money I have recently taken a step back to look at where I need to grow in order for this to happen. And for me it’s in the area of connection.
In order to do this I get to make a choice. The choice is to learn how to be in general chit chat conversations so that I have the opportunity to be in the deeper conversations.
I find the same is true when it comes to money.
Being willing to even begin to be in the conversation is the first step to having a financial life of grace and ease. Where can you connect with your money in a new way?
I created a handout The 5 Stages of Revenue Growth where I show you where to focus based on what stage of development you are at. Find which stage you are at. Then look at the previous stages and see if you have truly handled all the things necessary to fully move into the stage you are in.
You may find that there are things that are not yet in place which is why you may be stalled out in getting to the next level. Just like I have discovered that learning to connect with people initially with “chit chat” will allow me to get to talk with more people you may find that learning a base skill or creating a base system may be what allows you to get to the next level financially.
Enjoy the handout! (Download it here) I would love to hear your experience. Simply leave a comment below.
