Most times, when you have an awesome, mind blowing, never seen by anyone, anywhere else before, idea, product, design, service or skills, all you want to do is show it to everyone, because let’s face it your idea rocks and they should kiss the ground you walk on … riiiight … wrong. I know, I too was shocked, why aren’t they kicking my door down for this. 🤦🏽♀️ If you read my previous posts, not for everyone you learnt that not everyone will be interested. 🤷🏾♀️ So how do you find the ones, how do you find your perfect, preferred client
1. Start with who it’s not for. I know (huh) let me explain. Starting with who your client is not will help you reduce the people to sale to. When you know person K isn’t your client you will not bother with client K.
2. Whom do you wish would buy and are they buying? If not what are they saying about it.
3. What kind of client can afford it.? Be honest here. 4. Who else is dealing the same as you and who is buying from them. Yes dear, that unique idea isn’t that unique after all. 😔 Doesn’t mean it’s not a gold mine.
First your heart starts beating fast, then you feel your stomach filling with that hot gas, forget butterflies this is pure fear, then when your head stops pounding you start hearing the voices, giirl what are you doing, why on earth do you think you can do this, how will you do this, what will they say (forgetting you don’t even have a clear understanding of who this they, are.)
You then proceed to put away that laptop, that fabric, those scissors, that book, that client, that idea…honey that is what fear does to your shine
You feel that hot sweat going down your back and your head is spinning and there is some fire in your already blotted tummy, hands might even be sweaty.
You pick up that laptop, call that client, go for that demo interview, cut that fabric and use that glue gun.
You begin creating, writing and posting your new video, you are rushing and feeling like you could do this all day, even without getting paid! now that is fearless.
Been fearless is not the absence of fear but the presence of shine even as you tremble your way to greatness
