Avoiding the Danger Zone

Let’s imagine that you live in a house that needs some work. But you can tolerate it, because it’s good enough. And anyway, you’re too busy to fix it.

So instead of fixing things here and there, you put it off. You wait until it’s unbearable.

But now, instead of making small repairs, you’re looking at a whole renovation.

Where the small repairs could have taken a week or two, the renovation will take months and it will cost way more.

Sounds terrible, right? But this is happens in businesses every day: waiting too long to course correct until it’s too late. Getting into the Danger Zone.

I hear from a lot of entrepreneurs who are approaching the Danger Zone.

They only have a few potential clients in their sales pipeline. They’re doing discounted work because they need the income. Or they’re considering going back to work for someone else.

In these moments, I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and warn them: if you want to grow your business, now is the time. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Because if you want to get better clients and get paid bigger numbers, the time to do that is when you’re doing OK, not when your situation is desperate.

That time – when you’re doing OK – is when to hit the gas. That’s the time to do what you need to go from OK to great.

And what does great entail? Working with the clients you really want. Gettin the leads that are your absolute ideal client. Charging what you want, and getting get paid more per engagement.

Because takes so much more energy to go from the Danger Zone to OK, or the Danger Zone to great, than it does to go from OK to great. It’s possible, but it takes work.

But the flip side is this: it takes so much less energy to go from OK to great. And you can get there much faster.

What about you?

If you’re looking to go from OK to great, or if you’re looking to get out of the Danger Zone, now is the time.
