We are all looking for new ways to expand our audience, grow our business, and make our lives even better, right?
That means you’ve got to have the skills to recognize a promising opportunity and have the courage to go after it – and that’s not always easy!
I have found that people often find a way to talk themselves out of things. They tell themselves that it’s not the right time, or they shouldn’t spend the money, or it’s too much work, and they let awesome chances drift right by them.
Taking on challenges that scare you a little bit is a great thing. It shows you how strong and capable you are. It reminds you that you are tough enough, smart enough, and determined enough to take on anything that comes your way.
Fantastic opportunities will come your way – will you know what to say? Here are some that should always inspire a resounding YES!
-Opportunities to increase your visibility
There are TONS of opportunities to get yourself out there and introduce your brand to a wider audience. You can guest on a podcast, you can speak at a conference, you can even take part in round table discussions or panels.
If the thought of public speaking strikes fear in your heart, look for ways to get your message out there without a live audience – think guest blogging, an article or interview in an industry publication.
Businesses rarely stay static, right? There is always some new technology or tool or strategy that makes it faster and easier to get your job done. If there’s a new app that looks promising for your business, test it out! Most of them have a free trial period and the only thing you stand to lose is a couple of hours.
The same goes for new skills or strategies. Watch the webinar. Take the online course. Do what you can to make your business better. When you get the chance to try something new, go for it! Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
-Opportunities to level up your business
You might reach a point in your career where you want more from your business. As the years pass you might want to change your business model, or the services you offer, or any number of things. GO FOR IT!!!!
Never be afraid to take your business in a new direction. You started your business so you could call the shots, make the major decisions, and do what you love. If it’s not as interesting, exciting, or fulfilling as it once was, change things up!
When you are faced with a chance to do something new – take it – even if it scares you a little bit.
You are the captain of the ship, and you chart the course of your life. Be bold!!! Say yes! Take chances! This is your one beautiful life – make it everything you want it to be.
