Let’s make no mistake, being an entrepreneur is not easy.
It takes a lot of work.
However, what you do on a daily basis shouldn’t be hard…but rather effective.
Sadly, so many of us are caught in “busy mode”. Doing tasks not necessarily adding to the bottom line. In other words, working too hard with nothing to show for it. Not good!
Can you relate?
You know, there is an easier way to drum up business. If of course, you want to bring people to you, rather than chasing them down. It’s called…Attraction Marketing.
When you use this method to grow your business, you’ll find it easier to sell your products and services…because you are attracting the kind of people who want what you have.

Every now and then, I feel compelled to express myself a little more direct, than normal. This is one of those times. You can call this a ‘rant’ post…but, I’ve got to get this out…
I’m an entrepreneur. Lots of people are entrepreneurs. BUT…there are some people who claim to be entrepreneurs, while their actions show a very different reality. Now, I’m not judging…just observing the mindset and behaviors of the self-proclaimed entrepreneurs, who really need to just hang it up and realize, it’s time to quit.
Entrepreneurs Work for Themselves
Either we are self-employed, or an independent contractor/business owner, whose daily business duties and tasks, are set by us. We answer to no one. When an issue arises, it is our own responsibility to assess the situation, and find a solution.

“All that you have envisioned for yourself will manifest when you consistently show up for yourself.”
Why do so many entrepreneurs struggle with making consistent money in their business? It’s been my observation that one of the reasons is, they fail to show up for themselves. To many of us get into a lazy mindset, and it’s not always our fault. All of the fluff and false advertising on social media promising overnight riches for doing next to nothing, has caused most to believe they can get something for nothing.

“The decisions you make and the actions you take, dictate how well you are able to live your life by design.”
You may hear this phrase often as it relates to entrepreneurs and those who are committed to doing just that…living their lives, the way they choose to live them. You may be wondering to yourself, is that really even possible?
The answer is of course…YES!
Entrepreneurs are known to spend countless nights and endless hours, up working on building their dream. Many of us know what it’s like to be so involved, that we can go almost an entire day before we realize we haven’t eaten a single thing.
You may laugh as you read this because you know it’s true.
But reality is, after a few months of this…a lot of entrepreneurs notice a few extra pounds from lack of exercise and even some new aches and pains from the amount of time sitting all day at a computer.
It can seem hard to make time for our health even though it is vital to our long term success.
I chat regularly with entrepreneurs who have multiple “things” going on, or more than one stream of income. I also hear, how for the most part, they are sometimes unsure about what to say when people ask that one question….“so, what do you do?”
Let me first say this, when people ask me what I do, it’s hard for me to give a formal, normal title to sum it up. I could say – Marketing Consultant…but thing is, I do so much more than that. Truth be told, I DO quite a few things…when I wrap it all up, I say…I help people create Life Freedom!
Because technically, that’s what I do!
When most people think of an entrepreneur, they automatically assume that we don’t do much with our days. Unlike the rest of society, we supposedly have lots of extra time on our hands because we don’t have to work so hard…
I actually believe we work harder than everyone else because we have to manage EVERY role in our business, not just show up and perform one particular task (that’s a post for another day.)
Despite what regular folks think, entrepreneurs are actually, very busy people. Most are building their dream alongside a day job, going to school, raising a family and the list goes on.
There is a saying I hear a lot. “Busy people know how to get things done.”
The 4th of July always makes me reflect on what this holiday truly means and how it relates to us as entrepreneurs and small business owners. The same way our country declared independence on this day in 1776…you too, can claim your financial freedom as an independent business owner!
We are an elite group of freedom creators and dream chasers. The decision to become an entrepreneur seems natural to us because it’s who we are. I believe those of us who passionately pursue entrepreneurship, do so because it is our life purpose, to impact the world in an amazing way!
Though the journey is not always easy and requires a lot of focus, determination and commitment, the rewards of achieving financial freedom and independence are absolutely PRICELESS.
