As I prepared to launch Sales School 2015, I felt like I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off (which is a good ol’ southern saying for you)!
- At that time, I had a high-end, private coaching experience with 10 women
- Sales School had become the leading sales training for female business owners
- I had paid $50k to work with Ali Brown to teach me what I needed to do to hit 7 figures in my business
And yes, before you roll your eyes and think “Gag”, I was 100% time deprived, dropping balls, forgetting birthdays, getting ill, and just not myself.
You Can’t Run A Business This Way
This is no way to run a business that makes money, but my thought process was flawed. When you start a business, you say “Yes” to anything and everything to get exposure. I often joke in the beginning you get paid in:
- A little bit of money
- AND Exhaustion!
I was obsessed with growth and hitting a million dollars in revenue in 2015, which is ridiculous to me at this point, 2 years later.
As I was planning and budgeting how I was going to hit the ever-elusive goal, Brooke Castillo said to me, “What would happen if you only focused on Sales School and let go of everything else?”
The result was my first $250,000 launch.
It’s Not That Easy To Drop Everything
Although I was able to focus my time on the launch, the business still had to run and the items I was spending my time on still had to get completed.
So how did I make the change from doing everything, saying “Yes” to everyone, to focusing on Sales School allowing my business to hit $250K in revenue?
