How do you create a successful Business?

  1. Decide what success means to you (not everyone wants the same thing)
  2. Your Business needs to be solving a problem that people have and want resolved.
  3. People need to know that you have the solution to their problem.
  4. You must be confident in your product/service and be able to sell it.

Business is simple, but not easy. When you first start out, you don't know what you don't know. It can be hard to make decisions about what to do and in what order.

Everyone you speak to seems to have a different take on it. At least that's what I found when I was first starting out.

I'd got to a reasonable stage in my Corporate Career (Financial Services), and now I was back to square one, learning how to operate in a totally different arena.

It's almost impossible to plan when you feel overwhelmed, unclear and are ping-ponging between panic and possibility, problems and purpose.

That's why we created Elevate Your Influence. We were meeting too many talented business owners and side hustlers drowning in information and complex visions with no idea how to break it down and start getting results.

This Self Study Program will help you approach your business challenges step-by-step to get you settled into the driver's seat of your business (side hustle), with goals that excite you, and a plan for how to make it happen.

I was struggling with time management, for sure. I needed to balance a full-time contract, life, expanding the business and actually working on the product I plan to sell. It was all very daunting, and hard to attain focus on any one thing.

The most surprising/transformative part of the 30-Day Program was recognising how much there really is to do! In the first session, going over the broad monthly timetable was definitely eye-opening, and even though I didn't adhere to it, all of the tasks discussed are now given consideration whenever I make decisions about the business.

The biggest take away from the program was that I now actually have a plan. The timelines shift constantly, but I believe I am armed with everything that I need to grow the business, even if it takes longer than it should. If I get more time to invest, I will tick more things off. But it was really good to have the session to just talk and get a plan out, and consider how long each task would take. The accountability documents were great too - I'm still doing them, just to recap on the week gone-by. I haven't had a chance to personalise them to my sector yet, however I am constantly thinking about the day prior to plan for my upcoming day(s).

I found great value in the initial session and the weekly submission of documents - not only did they help gather my thoughts and understand the mammoth task ahead of me, but they did offer insight into my weekly routine, highlighting things that were really good to write down and reflect on.

I think if you're struggling to get your ideas down, or there's just too much on your plate to be able to focus, then Abigail is a fantastic help with that, and certainly if you're better at following plans than I am, then the day-to-day timetabling will be invaluable.
