This week we are talking about the growth that needs to happen in your business. Transformation happens in circles not silos.
Let me first explain what I mean by the word silo. A silo is a tower that stores grain it’s not where grain grows. A silo in business is when you are working in your business and not on your business.
We know that growth happens when we are working on our business but solopreneurs working on their own, can sometimes create a spin cycle.
Working in circles with other entrepreneurs will get you out of your spin cycle and into a growth latter. Creating community with likeminded business owners opens up the plethora of possibilities.
So, let me ask you wouldn’t it be amazing to create a brand in demand with instant feedback?
What do you do if you don’t measure up…to you? It will be impossible to have genuine relationships. The moment you start pretending especially on social media you stop growing.
There are some of us who have no desire to be out there like a Kardashian or in pictures in our underwear. But we want to be authentic… until you embrace where you are you can’t get where you want to be.
When you pretend you get stuck in the solopreneur spin cycle. But to be fully authentic we need to be face to face – eye to eye.
Giving ourselves time to truly work on our business gives me guilt. I’m not getting what needs to get done - done. I started to give myself some grace with this. In the mornings around meditation I allow myself time to just think and it has given me so much clarity.
I also give myself time to meet with other solopreneurs (because let’s face it no one in your family really gets you) Give yourself time to work on your business and not always in it.
Transformation happens in circles not silos. Ask someone to meet you for lunch not to pick their brain but to hash stuff out – now go reach out now.
Only when you get known do you get better. The only way to truly get known is to do life with people who get you and where you are in your business…because they’ve been there.
Why do you think that people fall in love in rehab – it’s because first they share what they are going through and second, they find someone who gets who they truly are…they make connections.
When I first started this entrepreneurial venture, it was always in the back of my mind to create community and for some reason I followed the herd and started with courses!
I had no one to keep me authentic with what I was most aligned with in my business. Don’t do what I did and waste time going in the wrong direction.
Real people Real friends Real change. When you stop the hustle, you hear. When you stop the hustle, you learn to listen. To other people’s input and your gut.
In the book Think and Grow Rich Napoleon Hill mentions he was in a mastermind “No mind is complete by itself It needs contact and association with other mind to grow and expand” No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force which may be likened to a third mind also known as a mastermind.
Change in life and change in business happens in groups. Create a group. If you want your group to in a community where there’s accountability in business then join us live where we will meet and walk away with your message that’s creates demand in our
The uncommon Brand Circles Not Silos Live events and in small groups where you’ll show up live and create connection by being authentic.
There’s extraordinary power in being known and I’m not just talking about on Instagram. Being truly know in a group of people who know exactly where you are at in your business and there’s no judgement.
Having been a leader for many years in small groups they connection you create goes deeper – When I first started with my last corporate job the previous RSM would have a Florida meeting and a Georgia meeting separating the team.
When I created team building events and brought them together the growth that the region saw was 124%!
Creating an environment that people feed off of each other and work together is the key to success.
You’re not growing your followers or your email list because people don’t know you and don’t know what you do or how you are different from everyone else.
Take a look at my Facebook and Instagram profile – my message is clear; I’ve had more people want to friend me and the traffic to my website has doubled since changing my message. On a side note I don’t focus on follows on IG but if you listen to my Girl Boss Coaches Podcast or you are reading this post hit follow and mention the podcast, I’d love to follow you back and get to know you better.
There’s a reason only 4% of courses get completed they are missing the two key ingredients for growth.
A coach that does hot-seats once a month isn’t invested, they are doing the minimum viable product. (I’ve bought these courses too!)
Most importantly courses don’t give you accountability.
I have managed sales teams and small groups pretty much my entire adult life and transformation happens in circles with accountability. If you want to differentiate your coaching business and have people, follow you and even copy you then… create an Uncommon Brand.
If you’re done with courses that don’t work or that never get completed and if you’re done with working with coaches that are not invested in your success then let’s work together in circles at: LouiseCourville.com
