No time for small fish

Really quick: tomorrow is the last day to apply for SIGNED, my program to learn how to land higher-paying consulting and coaching clients, step by step. If you’d like to work with me to learn how to sell confidently, and get help with the clients you’re already talking to, apply today for SIGNED which starts on October 28th. There’s no commitment to apply. Spots are limited, so don’t wait. See results from recent students and apply now!

So many of us are feeling just… over it. But for one woman, that’s turned into a hugely profitable shift in her consulting business.

I had an amazing call this past week with a prospective student for SIGNED, and I felt like our conversation completely encapsulated what so many of us are feeling at the moment.

“2020 fatigue.” We just don’t have the energy.

We used to be able to run errands, come back home, knock out some more work, take care of the family and still have some extra energy to burn.

Now we just don’t have it in us.

Our mental capacity is full and the last thing we want to do — the last thing we can do — is take on more.

She proceeded to tell me how, at the beginning of March, her clients started to lose funding, and by April, she had lost all of them. Every single client, gone.

At first, she panicked. But after some time, she realized: Even if they all came back, she wouldn’t want any of them. Not one of them.

With the headspace she had — the first actual clear headspace she had had in a long time — she saw clearly that these clients she had been working with…

Didn’t value her work.
Didn’t truly want to solve their problems.
Weren’t paying her enough.

She had been on a hamster wheel in her business, working too hard, for the wrong clients, for not enough money. She wasn’t going to get back into the same situation again.

She told me, “I don’t have the energy to chase small fish anymore.”

Maybe you were exactly the same before the pandemic. Burning the candle on both ends, giving all your best to each and every client, no matter what their size was or budget, or list of demands.

You were so busy trying to make everything work, you didn’t have time to focus on doing anything different.

But things are different now. And so are you.

Because let’s face it, you don’t have the time or energy now, and it’s too f’ing exhausting to take on clients that just don’t see the value you’re bringing.

So instead, let’s use this time to cut out the junk and get rid of the clutter. Clarify your message, find the clients who value what you do, and get paid more than you ever imagined.

I want you to take a moment today, close your eyes and breathe. Find your happy place 🙂 Imagine there was no COVID or election, or uncertainty in the world.

What would you want to be doing?
Who would you want to be working with?
How much would they be paying you?

That’s our to-do list. Yours and mine together. The woman who’s done chasing small fish, she’s working with me in this round of SIGNED to learn how to do exactly that.

Let’s work on your goals too.

I’m super excited about this next session of SIGNED which starts this Wednesday, the 28th. We’ve already gotten some amazing women on board who are ready to learn how to get paid what they’re worth.

Tomorrow is the last day to apply and I would love to talk to you about where you’re at and see if there is a fit. Apply and let’s see if SIGNED is right for you.

To your success,
Leah
