Plan for Profits
Have you ever scurried around looking for your sunglasses only to find them on your head?
Why didn’t you know they were there?
Most likely you were rushing, not really taking your time to think it through.
Believe it or not, it’s like that with money.
You scurry around, trying to hustle up some dough only to come up empty handed. Maybe you’re always on the hunt to find the golden marketing technique that will land you a wait-list of clients.
Being wealthy is not about getting lucky. It’s planned.
Maybe you’ve seen people whose businesses took off, yet they weren’t necessarily in a Rockefeller mindset. How’d they do it?
They truly believed they had something of value. And they asked themselves how they could get it into the hands of their ideal clients and customers.
What do you believe about your product and services? Should people be falling all over themselves to buy them? Do you believe that you should be rolling in the dough?
Money is everywhere. Any product or service can be your catalyst to wealth if you stop thinking you need someone to give you a break. You can increase your capacity to receive more income by changing your relationship with money. See it as something readily available to you, in any amount you want.
Sara Blakely transformed her idea of pantyhose with no feet into a household name (Spanx) for females who want to look trim in their little black dress or jeans. She did $1 million in sales her first year as a freaking solopreneur (now a multi-million dollar business!).
How’d she pull that off?
She went for it like it was a matter of fact, that it should be a best seller. And it is! She laid out a simple and creative plan and took the steps to implement it.
She thought it through.
Recently my bestie posted a short video of a cooler (to keep food and beverages cold) on my Facebook page. The video led me to Kickstarter.com, a place where entrepreneurs seek funding for their projects. I immediately invested so I could get my very own Coolest Cooler.
Their goal was to raise $50,000. They inspired 62,642 people to give them $13,285,226. The most successful Kickstarter project ever!
How’d that happen?
It has a lot to do with the creator’s mindset. He said, “I invent lots of things, but honestly very few have brought so much fun to my life.”
Before it was even close to funded he had nailed down the CAD design, the manufacturers and showcased professional videos to show off his cooler. He went balls out planning his launch in a time frame that most people would say is impossible.
He played it like he meant it. And he did it!
Are you planning for profits right now? Please don’t wait for a ‘break’ or struggle through years of scraping by. Adopt an ‘I CAN DO THIS’ attitude, along with a strategic plan and your business too, could be doubling its profits in less than a year.
You’ve got this.
