Have you ever felt this way?
The journey of entrepreneurship can be a turbulent one. It stretches your mental capacity, and your emotions on a daily basis.
And as you go through all the ups and downs that come your way, if you’re not connected with other business owners, it may seem like everything you experience is unique to you.
But if you talk to enough entrepreneurs, you’ll quickly learn that many of the struggles they experience are similar. The details may be different, but there are a number of other dreamers who have had challenges quite similar to yours.
There are many battles you have to fight when it comes to building your business.
There are challenges like knowing how to get started, where to find clients, or even how to not let social media suck hours of your life away each day.
But honestly, those obstacles are nothing when compared to the battles that go on in your head.
And it’s how you respond to those pesky mental barriers, that ultimately will determine your level of success as an entrepreneur.
Do you like to hang out in your comfort zone? In a world filled with uncertainty, it seems like a great place to be. But if you stay there too long, you’ll end up settling for a business and life that’s less than you’re capable of. Find out why, and get actionable steps to take to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Do you believe in soul mates?
In life, do you believe that there is that perfect person who is best for you? That one person that when you find each other, the two of you are destined to live life happily ever after?
Whether you embrace this concept in love or not, in business soul mates totally exist.
For every business, there is the perfect customer. And when your business is united with that ideal customer, magic happens.
You’re able to serve and delight this client like none other. And she won’t be able to get enough of what you have to offer. No other option will do.
Finding and serving your ideal customer is essential if you want to build a business that thrives.
So in the rest of this post I’ll go over what you need to do to figure out who your ideal client is.
Working for someone else can totally suck.
The people in charge tell you what projects to work on. They determine how much money you make. They’ve got a point of view on just about every aspect of your daily work.
Frustrating, isn’t it? Especially if you want to do work that maximizes your talents and abilities.
But as a business owner, you don’t have these worries.
You’re in charge. You can run your business exactly the way you want to. And since you’re the boss, of course things work out the way they’re supposed to.
The truth is, most businesses don’t work this way.
Successful entrepreneurs know their businesses do well because they’re not the boss. Here’s why.
Lots of businesses both large and small, treat their customers as if they don’t want them to stick around.
They treat them like a transaction. Like people whose money they want to take, and then shoo them away as quickly as possible.
But if you want to do well in your business, you’ll recognize that this isn’t a smart strategy at all. That’s because smart business owners know that the biggest prize in their business requires them to take a completely different approach with their customers. Find out.
“It’s really hard to find like-minded people.”
Have you ever felt that way?

And that’s no bueno.

Today, I’ll pull back the curtain on a simple way I personally use to find multiples of all four of the people needed to build a rockstar business.

Here’s the backstory.
