I am fortunate to learn from women across the world on their biggest visions, dreams, and goals and a common thread is that women create businesses on the basis of their values and the desire to contribute to the world. Giving to others or helping them is thrilling and gets your creativity flowing. However, the urge to help can often take precedence over the main thing you have to accomplish ensure that your organization remains thriving and healthy cash flow.
It is cash flow that is pulse of any company. It’s the only constant that you require to ensure that your business runs efficiently and without stress. In spite of that I have observed that women entrepreneurs do not put this crucial step in the middle of their list of actions when they begin the business. The reason, in many instances, is that women are naturally nurturers. We are born with this ability to reach out to assist others – often without getting properly compensated for the product or service we provide. Women report feeling uncomfortable asking for business. There’s a sense of despair within.
I too faced this issue when my company was still in the beginning stages. I am a huge fan of helping people and would like to finish my day knowing that I’ve made a positive impact on the lives of others. I quickly realized that if I did not have enough cash flow in order to cover the entire cost that go into operating a profitable business, my hopes and desires were likely to be shattered. I barely made it through the day and needed to do something to improve my situation!
I took the decision to implement changes that started to create cash flow fast consistently. this is the day I share them with you:
1. Believing in yourself
Having confidence and faith of your business or products being of value and sought-after in the marketplace is essential to generate an income stream that is positive. Keep testimonials or reviews from other customers close to close by to show how you have helped them in their lives. Make sure you are constantly affirming your actions and the ways you assist others.
2. Be noticed
In order to attract more money flow, it’s vital that you are noticed by your ideal customer. Leave your office, leave your laptop at home and to meet people! Attend local events and conference in which your ideal customer will be. Offer free workshops within your field of specialization. Create a presentation around something you are familiar with quite a bit about. You can also inquire with event hosts whether they’re looking for speakers.
3. Design Simple Systems
Do you have a process that you follow in your company that you can take potential customers through before you meet with them? This was a crucial element to ensuring that cash flows were consistent in my company. A system for taking clients through the process from the beginning demonstrates your knowledge and assists the client in feeling relaxed and more willing to collaborate with you.
4. Be Focused on Profit
early in my career, one of my mentors was very wise and told me,”It’s not what you produce it’s what you save.” Indeed. Be aware of your expenditures and ensure you budget your money wisely for your business. To make profits in your business, you need to put money into your company. Make sure you are knowledgeable and aware of what you’ll need to achieve the Big Idea a reality.
5. Request a quote
And last, but definitely not the least. The majority of people will not give you money if they believe they will get the item or service at no cost. I suggest you share with potential customers what they should do to address their issue and why it’s crucial. Do not tell your potential clients how to fix their issue (that’s the reason they’re in need of you!)
The main point is that if you’re driven by doing good and making a difference to the world with the work you do, then it’s vital to establish a viable business. The easiestand most efficient method to achieve this is to maintain a steady positive, steady flow of cash every week, month-aftermonth, year-afteryear. This is the most important point of all that we (yes we, myself and you) are required to be a beacon of light to women all over the world. It is our responsibility to demonstrate through our actions that earning money from what we do is a right that we have to claim.
Everything is achievable. Everything is waiting to be discovered.
