How Business Accountability Groups Change a Hobby to Six-Figures

How Business Accountability Groups Change a Hobby to Six-Figures

While the New Year is the traditional time of year to set resolutions, it’s not always the best time to set business goals. Why? Well, because those resolutions don’t typically last very long. So let’s turn that on its head and learn how to make a lasting change to your business. Let’s transform that hobby into a six-figure, money-making business that gives you the freedom and flexibility you want, all while filling the market need that created your business in the first place. And how we do this is through business accountability groups and one-on- one coaching.

Business Accountability Groups: Making SMART Goals Work for You

A goal isn’t a goal unless it’s SMART – it’s Specific/Simple, it’s Measurable/Meaningful, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely. So many times, though, business owners don’t make their goals specific enough. For example, they may say, “I want to help other female entrepreneurs to get out of the expensive hobby mode and break the six figure barrier.” Now, that’s an admirable goal, isn’t it? Of course it is! But, it isn’t specific enough. So let’s tweak it ever so slightly, shall we? “In 2018, I want to help 30 other female entrepreneurs to get out of the expensive hobby mode and break the six figure barrier.” Better, right? That’s a SMART goal. And I have a confession… it’s my goal for this year. Well, mostly. I want to help 30 female entrepreneurs to achieve their personal business goals. It doesn’t have to be a six figure goal. Six figures is just a nice placeholder while I work with clients to set their personal (and SMART) business goals – and then help them learn how to make those goals work for them.

Surround Yourself With Like-Minded Achievers Who Help You

When you’re on a journey, it’s important that you surround yourself with people who want to reach the same destination. Otherwise, things don’t go smoothly. Dealing with your business is no different! That’s why you need a support team who’s on board with your goals and is willing to help you achieve them. And when you’ve got a business accountability group or an experienced business coach, they’re on board with your vision, your income producing activities, and your plan. They’re there to help you succeed. And with a great team, you’re bound to succeed.

Transform Your Hobby (and your mentality) and Have A Successful Business

So this (and any) year as you look at any resolutions or goals you’ve made, make sure that you’re not only making SMART Goals and getting a great team. Make sure that you’re also transforming your mentality. And you do that by making sure that your attitude and your business plan is in the right place. Because once you’ve got a solid business plan (even if it is simple), your mentality is going to shift. You’re going to be able to set those SMART goals with ease. You’re going to see the importance of having an accountability group. You’re going to want a coach in your corner. And you’re going to want to lessen the noise from those less-than- supportive types in your life. And as you do these things, you’ll soon find that your business has grown leaps and bounds, as has your income, your happiness, and your freedom.

Want to be one of the 30 entrepreneurs that breaks barriers this year? Then lets work together now.

Money Love Manifesto

Money Love Manifesto

Your Life is the sum of your choices. Choose well. Stop the desire to acquire.

Tell the truth. When you are truthful about your money, miracles happen. Start where you are.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for. Life is simple. Breathe Deeply.

If something makes you smile, do more of that. If you want more money, give more value. Stop being a victim, decide to be powerful.

Say thank you. Be kind, give more. Ask questions, the curious mind grows strong.

Surround yourself with positive people.  Be your own hero. Trust your gut.

Give yourself permission to be wealthy. More money gives you more choices in life.

Clear out your space, make room for what’s really important to you.

The less you spend, the more you have. Decide what is important to you, do that every day.

Collect experiences and knowledge, not things.  Respect your money, pay attention to it.

Find more than one way to create income. Always be open to opportunity, when it knocks, open the damn door.

You are worth it. Spend with intention. Save with passion. Invest to grow.

Love your money. Love your life. Live your dreams.

10 Ways to Attract More Money into Your Life!

10 Ways to Attract More Money into Your Life!

  1. GIVE MORE VALUE THAN YOU CHARGE FOR
  2. NOTICE WHAT COMES IN AND GIVE THANKS EVERY TIME
  3. TREAT YOUR MONEY WITH RESPECT – CASH, COINS, CARDS,
    GIFT CARDS, ETC.

    1. Cash should be lined up in order in your wallet
    2. Loose change should be in the proper spot in your
      wallet or change jar
    3. Gift certificates and discounts should be used promptly,
      not folded or crumpled up in the bottom of your purse
  4. SPEND TIME WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO FOCUSED ON
    GROWTH AND PROSPERITY

    1. Mentors, peers, find new groups on Meetup.com,
      Seminars and conferences, friends.
  5. HAVE A MONTHLY MONEY DATE WITH YOURSELF OR
    SIGNIFICANT OTHER

    1. Light a candle, have some tea, chill out
    2. Your money is your friend, treat it with that kind of
      respect, and have fun with it!
    3. Review all of your accounts, celebrate what you’ve
      been doing well and review where you can improve
  6. STAY AWAY FROM CONVERSATIONS OF NEGATIVITY OR LACK
    1. Negative talk and positive talk both snowball into
      bigger thoughts and actions, choose which you want
      to focus on
  7. WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE, YOU GET WHAT YOU FOCUS ON
    1. I can’t afford that = I choose to spend my money
      elsewhere or ask yourself how CAN you afford that?
    2. It’s so expensive, I’ll never be able to buy a house, or
      that vacation, or whatever your dream is = I am in control
      of my choices and I choose to use my money with
      purpose to serve me!
    3. A simple shift in language can create abundance, catch
      yourself thinking or saying words of lack, and change it
      to words of abundance!
  8. ACCEPT GIFTS THANKFULLY – DON’T DEFLECT
    1. A friend offers to buy your coffee, simply say thanks
      and/or offer to buy the next one.
    2. Write thank you notes, truly be thankful to everything sent
      your way.
  9. LET IT GO
    1. Whatever choices you have made in the past, good or
      bad, they were your choices. Own then and look for the
      lesson you learned, in order to move forward with strength.
