Scared Of A Skills Shortage? Thrive! TV Tips

You want to leave your job and set up your own business, or take a big new step in your current business but you stop, you hesitate. You’re scared From my research I know you are probably scared that you will fail, and fail because you don’t have the right skills to do it successfully. This fear can paralyze us, and we end up doing nothing. We dream about taking the leap but because we don’t think it will work, instead if trying anyway, we do nothing. The best way to beat a fear is to meet it head on! So, if you think you don’t have the right skills to do something, stop guessing and get some facts together! It’s time for a look under the bonnet and time for a skills audit. These are really simple to do… Think about the job or business you want to create What skills are needed – if you don’t know go and ask someone that does that type of thing already Review your list – and mark out of 10 how well you think you can do the skills required Then make a decision – will you learn how to do it, or outsource it Volia! You have the facts – a true picture of how big… or small your skills shortage really is Would you like a weekly burst of momentum delivered straight into your in box?

Phobic About Finance? Thrive! TV Tips

Do your numbers scare you? Are you phobic about finance? Could you tell me how much your business earned last month, last week or even last year? If you are only looking at your business finances at tax time, you are not running a business but you are running an expensive hobby. The more we know about the numbers in the business, the more we understand about it. I know that the thought of getting out the bank statements and checking them against invoices and receipts can seem like a terrible job, but if you are to know the health of your business it is essential. Hiding away form the numbers will probably leave you feeling worse about your business than you need to. I know from the experience of my clients, that they often think their financial situation is much worse than it really is. So you need to embrace the numbers and do it frequently. Leaving it all to tax time means you are already out of date by the time you get them.   Your Action: Here are some easy steps to take to get up to date with your numbers: Block out an afternoon in your diary Gather all of your bank statements and receipts On a big piece of paper or a spreadsheet, enter all of the money that came in each month. Add that up, as that is your income. Then underneath that all of your receipts, debit card and credit card bills and put those in each month – that is your expenses. Simply take away the expenses from your income, and... read more

Should I Stay Or Go? Thrive! TV Tips

Procrastination can be a wonderful thing to keep us safe but it can also keep us stuck! Should I stay or go? If you are wondering if you should leave your job and start your business, or maybe you feel as if it is a step too far and it scares you, but the job isn’t doing it for you either… then try this, I call it my Sliding Doors visualization. Say you have 2 choices… stay in my job, or leave and set up my business. Choice 1 and choice 2. What I want you to do is to spend time imaging what your life would be like in 5 years if you took choice 1, or if you chose choice 2. Really visualize choice 1 – imagine how it would be to live your life, remaining in your job now. What you would do every day, how much you would earn, who you would meet, what would you love and where would you be challenged? Then visualize, if you can, 5 years into the future with the 2nd option… starting up your job. Imagine what it’s like to set up your business in 5 years time. Who will you be dealing with, who are your customers and what will your life be like? What will make you happy; what will stress you? When you have taken time to visualize your future outcomes you can start to understand the impact of the two decisions. That will give you give you clarity about what your futures may be.

Do You Squirm When You Mention Price? Thrive! TV Tips

Be honest, when you mention price to a prospect over the phone or face to face, do you squirm inside? You know what I mean – you hesitate, look down and say gently, your asking price. Inside you are squirming! And you are thinking, ‘Oh maybe I should have made it less, maybe it’s too much and they’ll say no.’ And then, because the squirming is SO bad inside, you offer to discount even before they have had a chance to respond. Or you offer payment plans… or worse, offer to do it for free. When I started coaching 10 years ago, that was my approach… ugh! If this sounds like you, you need to be more confident in your pricing strategy and truly understand and own your value. Here are 3 key steps to help you leave the squirming behind: Market research – Is your price set at the right level? Check out the competition and what your prospects will pay. You deserve it – Write a list of 20 (yes 20) reasons why you deserve to be paid that much… experience, training, clients etc, etc. Know your value – It is imperative that you know and totally believe in the value that your offering gives your customers. When you believe they will as well. Write a list of the 20 ways in which customers benefit from working with you.   Your Action:   Stop squirming and embrace your value! Take the time to complete the 3 steps – market research, why you deserve it and know your value. Write it all down and then review your price.... read more
