They say hindsight is 20/20 and with that in mind, I have three mistakes I’ve made in my business I would rather you avoid.

It’s OK to make mistakes. That’s how you learn and grow, and you need to give yourself permission to make mistakes.  It’s part of the process.

With that said, here are the three mistakes I made and if you find that you are making these mistakes, please reach out for help.

Mistake Number One:  Being scattered.

One of the things I believed back in the day was that the company that has the most products wins.  I’m sure you’ve heard something along those lines at least once, right.

Companies by nature are complex, but if you start with complexity out of the gate, it becomes challenging to grow. This prevents you from being effective and focusing on the things that matter most because you’re busy doing too much stuff.

Lesson learned on that mistake:  Keep It Simple

Mistake Number Two:  Doing Too Much In The Business

I’ll admit, this is something I’m still working on, but your job as an entrepreneur is to fire yourself continuously and this goes back to what I talked about in How To Become Replaceable.

You really need to look at the thing that should be delegated that are not the best use of your time.

Mistake Number Three:  Free and Organic Will Not Grow Your Business

Giving away free stuff or posting organically will not grow your business.

At one time this did work, but in this day and age it does not.  Even when it did, had I gone the route of paid advertising, I could have cut my trajectory to success in half had I mastered the one important skill I fully believe that every entrepreneur using the internet needs to master, and that is paying to acquire clients.

If you’ve been making any of these mistakes and your business is not growing fast enough, I invite you to go  where you can book a time to speak with us and help you get your business moving in the right direction.

If you have any comments, questions, feedback, I’d love to hear from you.

What You Missed

In our last episode, we talked about 3 unseen threats to your business and why they are unseen.

The first threat is distraction. Unless you are fully committed and understand the path you are on, it is very easy to be dissuaded to something else.

The second threat is impatience which ties into the first threat.  If you are not patient and trust the process, you will easily become distracted looking for the next big thing.

The third threat is comparison which is so easy to do, especially with social media.  Don’t worry what other people are doing.  You need to know your path, be confident with the path you are on and you will get to the destination you want to be on.

Listen to this episode to find out more about these three threats and if you can avoid these three threats, you will be a lot better off and so will you clients.
