Imagine you had a client who consistently failed to get back to you with important info. that was going to help you ensure they had the best wedding.
They couldn’t find the time to get their client intake form filled in.
They were too busy to fill in the wedding timeline you sent.
They were always too busy for you! They never have time for you!
How frustrating, right?
However, I’m pretty sure some of you are coming up with similar excuses when it comes to you and the things you want to work on for your business growth. Even when you know how important those tasks are to your future growth.
Now, before you go thinking I’m being way too hard on you, know this: we all struggle with this very issue. I’m putting my hands in the air too for doing just this!
We all put our clients, our family, our friends, and even the neighbour we barely know before ourselves.
This blog comes from a place of love and my desire for you to achieve your amazing potential.
So today I’m giving you permission right now to start treating yourself as the VIP you really are.
It’s ok to sometimes put your business growth ahead of that of your client work.
And I say this because by doing that will you be able to reach more people, help more couples, and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
The simplest way to do this is to just make appointments with yourself.
That hour or two you have free on Thursday afternoon? Don’t book a client meeting or client work in that spot.
Mark it on your calendar, and treat it as an unbreakable appointment, just as you would an appointment with a client or your doctor or your accountant.
Spend time working on the things that are important to the continued growth of your business.
Develop a new product/service.
Put together a new lead magnet.
Write emails for your email autoresponder.
Finish that lesson of the course you’re enrolled in and implement just one thing.
In short, do those things you tell yourself you’ll get round to when you’re less busy. (Hint: ain’t ever going to happen….speaking from experience here!).
Don’t push them aside for “later” or “after your client work is done.”
Elevate yourself to VIP client status and start putting yourself first.
Your business (and your clients) will thank you for it.
