First of all I want to apologize for not posting for a while. I have been really busy with my Masterclass students and this has taken up a lot of time. If you are interested in seeing how they progress throughout my 36 week program check out their blogs on the right hand side of this page. If you refresh the page you will see more blogs appear. After only 6 weeks you can see the incredible progress being made by all.
However, that’s not what this blog post is about, I want to write about something we all fear from time to time, and that is doing things online we have never done before. This could be anything from putting your picture online to recording your first video. If I recall I had been marketing for 4 years before I let anyone see what I looked like. Why it took so long is something I can’t really answer but I want to share with you three things I have already done this year that I had never done before. I had to do these things if I wanted my business to grow.
First of all I recorded my first video, I did this to promote my Masterclass program and this is something I had never done before. I was quite nervous not only filming this but making it public.
Secondly, I attended my first seminar last month. Again, this is something I had never done before and the thought of meeting people I had gotten to know online made me a little nervous but again I knew I had to do this if I wanted my business to grow.
Thirdly, I held my first webinar for my Masterclass students on Sunday. The thought of 80+ people listening to me and watching every move I made live was terrifying, but once I got into it things were fine and I have had excellent feedback from my students telling me how much they enjoyed it.
So what is the point I am trying to make here? The point is sometimes our fears can hold us back. We can keep putting something off and harm our business growth. I have been putting off doing live webinars for a long long time but now I have done one I feel I can do many many more. In fact I have plans to do something with all my subscribers, not just my Masterclass students. I also have many more videos planned and I will also be attending more seminars as the business relationships that can be struck while attending these seminars is priceless.
So if you are putting something off because you are fearful of what may happen my advice to you is to go for it. I have already done three things this year that I was fearful of doing and now it’s over I don’t really know what I was fearful of.
Is there something you are nervous about doing to grow your business? Share your fears by commenting below and maybe it will help you overcome them, but please make sure you do overcome them, especially if your business growth depends on it.
