This week we've been talking Faith and "Serving Others". As many of you know I am a Christian and although I do need to earn a living doing what I do to pay the bills, my belief is to ALWAYS serve.
We all know that not everyone will be able to work 1:1 with us, so how will you serve the others who also need to hear from you? For me, this group is one way that I do that. I strive to provide HIGH value for ALL the women who join. I also create my monthly freebie workbooks and offer free sessions from time to time to give back.
When your heart comes from a place of serving, abundance will ALWAYS flow through. Since I launched my business in October, I have done at least 75+ free calls. Doing these calls has been a blessing for ME. They have helped me understand the women that I serve, given me ideas for content, and at least 15 of them eventually become paying clients WITHOUT needing to pitch. Many of these have also turned into incredible opportunities/collaborations.
I know this may sound a little woo-woo to some of you, but I always say I serve a BIG God. And when you LEAD with a heart of GIVING, nothing BUT Abundance will flow freely through your life. Now this leads into this weeks Tip: Evaluate how you can give more VALUE to those around you, not JUST your clients.
So often I see business owners pitching themselves in groups. Now I will be honest, I'm sure I did this in the beginning of my business and early on navigating the online world. When you are new to all of this, you may not be aware of the rules in groups and that pitching is generally the most INEFFECTIVE way to get someone's attention.
But don't get me wrong, pitching is necessary at times, but just not ALL the time. What is NECESSARY is consistently providing VALUE and showing AUTHENTICITY. THIS is how you will sell out your product or book up your 1:1 services.
What are your intentions when you enter the online space? Do you pitch and run? Or do you take some time to provide value to others and allow the value to sell you? I want to challenge each of you today to provide value somewhere in the online space. You never know how this could impact someone.
Recently I listened to an old sermon from Hillsong NYC entitled "Stir it Up". This message goes perfectly with our topic of serving this week. Pastor Carl Lentz talks about this concept of "Circulation". Here are a few of the key and POWERFUL points:
++Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:38++
// When goodness flows through you, make sure you share with others.
// Whatever the thing is that you want, should be the thing that you are giving.
// You want someone to encourage you, you need to be encouraging others.
// Whatever you DESIRE, you need to GIVE.
// God has done this for me, so he can do this for you.
// God's given this to me, so I will give to you.
// If you want it, go give it.
// You want blessing, bless others.
// Maybe someone let you down, so you've stopped giving, but DON'T
// Someone hurt you, you need to forgive again
Does this resonate with anyone today? Are you living a life of CIRCULATION aka SERVING? Need some support in getting into a mindset of abundance in your business? Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll tell you some ways I can help support you.
