I’ve shared before that what you say No to is just as important as what you say Yes to. Actually, No is a form of saying Yes.
When you say No to something, you’re saying Yes to something else.
Recently I announced that I’m no longer accepting website or done-for-you tech support clients. That was a big No to an activity that has been a part of my life for over 5 years.
Saying No was scary but what reassured me in my decision was all the things that I was saying Yes to.
I chose to say Yes to…
A more leveraged way of generating revenue that is rewarding and way less stressful
More time to cook delicious, healthy meals for myself and my family
More revenue that was independent of hours spent glued to my laptop
Less meetings, less emails, less text messages, less “emergencies”
More time for hiking and exploring the world around me
More opportunities use my big picture thinking and problem solving skills by working in my zone of genius
- More time to create exciting projects and innovate in my own business ventures
Every time I invite someone to work with me, I encourage them to think about what it is they truly want and how life would shift for them when they have it. I believe in creating space for people to say yes to what they truly want, even if that means saying no to me!
My approach to business growth requires an on ramp – a checklist of “must do ONCE steps” in order to hit your goals. This on ramp is aggressive and it’s also necessary. It prevents me from having to teach you the basics over and over again and instead focus on the actions that really move you forward.
If you’re totally comfortable where you are and growing at the pace you are… you shouldn’t work with me. I like people who take quick action. My best clients are the ones who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get it done the minute we hang up the phone and then email me the next day to ask “what else?”
If that sounds like you and you’d like to explore what working with me looks like, I’d be happy to share the details with you in a quick call. Complete the application form here.
