Badass Is The New Black (Season 5) Episode #35 - Entrepreneurship is Not for the Faint of Heart: Celebrating Small WinsOct 04, 2023
Embarking on the journey of entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It's a rollercoaster ride filled with exhilarating highs and daunting lows. In this blog post, we'll explore the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and the importance of celebrating your achievements, no matter how small they may seem.
The Entrepreneurial Rollercoaster
Entrepreneurship is like a rollercoaster ride through a theme park of challenges and opportunities. There are those exhilarating moments when you're on top of the world, making loads of money and achieving your dreams. But there are also those frustrating times when you hit a low point, barely breaking even, and questioning your choices.
It's important to understand that this rollercoaster is all part of the game. Success rarely comes without its fair share of setbacks and challenges. Entrepreneurship is not a linear journey, and there will be times when you feel like you're taking one step forward and two steps back.
The Importance of Persistence
In our quest to achieve massive success, we often forget to celebrate the small wins along the way. It's easy to get caught up in the pursuit of our big goals and overlook the progress we've made.
One example comes from a private client who felt disappointed because only two people attended her weekly master class. It's important to remember that hosting a weekly master class doesn't leave much time for inviting participants, and it's just one step in a larger journey. She had achieved so much in a short time, creating a digital program from scratch and successfully selling it to multiple clients. Her students were reaping the benefits of her expertise.
The First Leg of the Journey
Creating a digital offer and getting clients results is just the first leg of the entrepreneurial journey. Once everything is set up, the focus shifts to finding and driving traffic to your funnel. It's a different phase that requires patience and persistence.
Appreciating the Little Things
Sometimes, we need to take a step back and appreciate the little things. Entrepreneurship can be all-consuming, and it's easy to lose sight of how far we've come.
Imagine your life and business on a time-lapse. If you were to play back the past year, what would it reveal about your accomplishments? It's crucial to reflect on your progress and acknowledge both personal and professional achievements.
A Year of Growth
Reflecting on personal growth and business achievements can be enlightening. One year ago, a business owner met with a coach to plan for the next five years. In just one year, they achieved remarkable milestones:
- Revamped a struggling business, making it profitable.
- Rebranded and revamped an entire program.
- Launched a template shop.
- Created multiple new offers.
- Initiated the "Access to the Experts" series.
- Featured in a magazine and wrote an article for another.
- Rebuilt a hacked Instagram account.
- Wrote a book!
These achievements showcase the power of persistence and hard work.
Setting Goals for the Future
As you reflect on your past accomplishments, it's essential to set new goals for the future. If you feel like you haven't achieved as much as you'd like in the past year, think about what you want to accomplish in the next year.
Consider what you need to learn and what support you require to reach your goals. If creating a digital offer or course is on your list, explore opportunities to learn and grow.
Entrepreneurship is a challenging journey, but it's also incredibly rewarding. It's essential to celebrate your achievements, big and small, and take time to appreciate the progress you've made. Reflect on your past accomplishments, set new goals for the future, and continue taking imperfect action towards your dreams. Remember, entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart, but with persistence and dedication, you can achieve remarkable success.
