Gina shared three very POWERFUL “lessons learned” during our conversation. Here are the highlights … (I’ll tell you how to get access to the entire interview in just a little bit!)
Lesson 1 – Having a (ONE) good coach is incredibly important. One of the things I learned is not to follow too many different people. I signed up for way too many programs & courses. It was way more than I could absorb, much less implement. I totally fell prey to the bright shiny object syndrome. I was always looking for the hot new thing! My best advice for everyone … stick with one coach, listen to one voice … learn and master what you are being taught. Take immediate action. Measure your results and when everything is working well … then go on and find the next thing you need to learn and master to grow your business.
Lesson 2 – Don’t become too dependent on just doing business solely online. I’m convinced that you need to have both a powerful presence online and a powerful presence off-line. It takes a while for people to get to know you, like you, and trust you. And, it takes even longer for that to happen online. I found that success happens more quickly when people leverage going to events and networking face to face with people rather than just trying to cultivate those relationships online.
Lesson 3 – The power of focus. Focus ties in with the other two lessons I mentioned. Too many people get off track when when they don’t focus correctly. They don’t understand how to go from product to profitability. We need understand that we MUST ride just ONE horse!! You can’t ride two horses at the same time. You have to ride that one horse all the way around the track so that you don’t get stuck and give up too soon. It’s a process and it’s going to take some time to go through the whole thing. Just make the decision to stick with it until it’s done. Otherwise you will get off track, become scattered and have to go back to the beginning all over again. Focus … focus … FOCUS!! No more being distracted by bright shiny objects!
