Whether you’ve been in business a day, a month or a year, it’s inevitable that, there will come a day when you have to bring money in NOW! Perhaps, right now is that time.
It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I’ve been there before myself. It can be very stressful, frustrating and cause one to doubt oneself. What has helped me and continues to help me, is to understand that we live in an abundant world. Money is always available to YOU! Sometimes it’s the scarcity mentality that can hold you back.
You see, if you’re focusing on…
The money that you don’t have
The customers/clients that you don’t have
The fact that some of the people you know don’t have money either
What you focus on is always mirrored back to YOU!
If you make a conscious effort…
To set, clear & defined goals
On the dollar amount you wish to deposit in YOUR bank account
To connect with people that can afford to pay you for your products/services
You are energetically aligning yourself to make it happen. Let me give you an example. Let’s say your goal is to make $5,000.00 per month as a Fashion Stylist.
You have to know the exact amount you wish to bring in. Whenever I ask clients this question, they are often vague and this is clearly where attracting money starts. You have to know Why you want it. You have to know What you’re going to do with it. You have to know When you need it by.
It’s easy to say $10,000.00 or $100,000.00 per month but it has to be realistic to YOU otherwise you won’t believe it. When you believe it, you will be motivated to take action and overcome obstacles. One of the reasons that you may not be making the amount of money you wish to make, you’re not taking the necessary action steps to achieve your financial goals.
To make this effective, sit down with a pen & paper and write out all of your bills and come up with the sum total of your expenses. Going back to the $5,000.00 example. If $5,000.00 is your monthly income goal, you can begin to create YOUR money plan to bring in $5,000.00.
First things first, what are you going to sell? It has to be something that is viable in the marketplace. Your product/service has to be a solution to a problem. How many customers/clients do you have to serve to bring in that amount of money? Last but never least… How much are you going to charge? This is the most important part. You cannot waiver. “Yo-Yo Pricing” is really popular right now. It’s not cute or chic AND it’s not something you do if you want people to take you seriously and value your product/service.
Speak Up Please!
Ask for the sale! Ask for the sale! Ask for the sale! Are you talking to people every day about what you do? Make it a point to ask for the sale every day or a referral at the very least. This is the most important thing you can do to increase your bank balance.
Here are 3 affirmations that I love…
I close the sale every time!
I am excellent at closing the sale!
People buy my products/services NOW!
Refrain from negative thoughts about the economy or if people tell you no. Be prepared to take a NO to get to a YES!
