5 Things Holding You Back From A Successful Business

Stop making this so hard…

There are so many things in life that are hard and so I don’t understand why we (myself included) have to make the things in life that are easy soooo FREAKING hard!

Life gets hard… Your business doesn’t have to be, so stop making it that way.

Creating content and making money daily in your business doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it is super super easy!

We think that making money and creating content is hard because we make it that way. We decide that it has to be done a certain way and followed by certain steps in order for our businesses to be successful but the truth of the matter is WE DON’T.

I say this and many of you that are always with me and hear me say that your content needs certain things or done in a certain way may be thinking that I am losing my mind a little bit but trust me I am not. Just hear me out. lol

There are certain elements and structures to your content that you NEED to have in order to see results but how you create your content or your content topic should not be hard. Stop making this so hard. Stop thinking about marketing and selling as some type of obstacle that you have to always be training for in order to launch your next offer.

Anyway as you can see I could go on a rant over this topic but I will cut it off here and move on.

There were two things I hated and avoided most when I started my business online…

Marketing and Creating Content

These tasks just seemed so freaking tedious and really got me nowhere! I mean really… I got minimal results from 16-18hr days of effort.

I just couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong and the fact that I LOVE to write but struggled with content really kept me frustrated.

It only took tons of mistakes, research, and bad investments for me to figure out why it wasn't working and what was holding me back.

Here are some of the things that were holding me back when it came to creating GOOD content that converted.

>>>Desperation! This mistake alone killed my content. Your audience can smell desperation a mile away and your content reeks of it. My content reeked of desperation and rightfully so because that was exactly where I was at in my business. You have to get clear on the elements of your business and shake the desperation.

>>>No one is relating to you. Let’s face it… You are not relatable and so no one is able to resonate with you and your message. Show up and just be yourself. Very cliche I know but it is really this simple so try it.

>>>Not sharing results. You need to share your wins with your audience. Your results, your client results, etc. There are not any results too big or too small to share and it doesn’t have to be money results. All results are worth sharing.

>>>Fear! I struggled with creating content out of fear. Fear of being judged, fear of not knowing enough, Fear of grammatical errors, Fear of being seen as an imposter. I hated the thought of creating content because there was just so much FEAR around the entire process. I put so much pressure on myself that I made everything soooo hard. You have to work through this fear. Your fear is holding you back and your content shows it every day… If you are consistent!

These are just a few of the things that were holding me back from creating AMAZING content that converted into AMAZING sales. MONEY! MONEY! MONEY!

Now it’s your turn… Which of these do you feel is holding you back from creating content that actually converts?
