One of the problems that most Soul Proprietors experience at one time or another — and more often than not — is in planning and preparing and getting ready but then not actually getting anything done.
We want to do it right — whatever IT is at the moment — and our perfectionist self kicks in and we figure we need to read one more book, take one more teleclass, and consult with our astrologer one more time to make sure the planets are aligned for success, and then we do — nothing.
Nothing at all.
I talk to Soul Proprietors all the time who are just on the verge of doing something. They already know what they should be doing and they’re going to start marketing their business just as soon as they get the ebook written, the website ready to go, the glamour shot done, or the dog bathed, but it seems like those things never get done.
And therefore the marketing never gets started.
I’ve been there myself more times than I care to admit and I know what you’re going through. It’s funny how we think that, if we just prepare more, that somehow, miraculously, in defiance of all odds and in despite of all else that we know to be true, those long yearned-for clients, will one by one magically start to show up at our doorstep.
Hate to bust your bubble, but it ain’t gonna happen.
All you really have to do is get started. You can read my ebook over and over, take my free teleclasses, and ask me for advice all you want, and you still won’t get one more client until you DO something.
Figure out what you want to do to market your business — choosing no more than 3 things that you know you’ll enjoy, perhaps from one of my guidebooks — and then…. move your feet. Move your fingers. Move your lips. Get busy. Get into action.
What’s holding you back? What could you do — right now — to take action to market your business?
