How One Day Spent ON Your Business Can Impact Your Entire Year
Do you have a running list of things you’d like to make happen for your business, yet you can never seem to find the time/energy to actually make them happen?
Do these tasks (tasks that would truly help YOUR business grow) keep ending up on the back burner as you grow your clients’ businesses instead?
In today’s episode, I’m sharing a concept you may have heard me mention before - a VIP Day - and shifting its focus onto you and your business. When you’re listening to this show, you’re going to learn more about what I consider a technique of Next Level Entrepreneurs. It’s something that, if you choose to apply it to your business, will lead to wildly accelerated outcomes.
Here’s how just one day spent on your business can dramatically impact your entire year.
How much of your time spent working is actually moving YOUR business forward?
While I see so many coaches, entrepreneurs, and service providers spending tons of time IN their businesses, what I see much less of are these same people spending any focused time ON their businesses. Perhaps this is something you can relate to:
Here you are, committed to your entrepreneurial journey, setting goals and intentions for yourself and your next year, but then... stuff just keeps getting in the way. And the tough pill to swallow is, it's not like you're not being productive. It's not like you're not working your butt off, particularly in moving your clients’ businesses forward. You’re busy. You’re hustling. You’re doing important work, but it’s all preventing you from launching that course, from expanding on your current offerings, and from embarking on that new revenue stream that might be the thing to finally advance and elevate your business.
What’s the solution? A VIP Day.
Now, you may remember a concept I talked about a while back called VIP Days. VIP Days are essentially an exclusive experience for a client to work with you directly one on one to address issues in their business and accelerate their success in one highly focused day.
When I first introduced this strategy, I talked about the value of offering VIP days as a means of providing something uniquely impactful to your clients that brings in quick cashflow for you and gets them supercharged results.
But today, I want to talk about VIP Days from another perspective. This one is focused on you and your business, rather than your client’s.
How often do you invest in yourself by taking a day OUT of your business to work ON your business?
I was recently speaking with one of my clients and mentioned this concept to her. I said, “Hey, why don't you give your company a VIP Day?”
She had been telling me how she’s been wanting to do this and that to help grow her business, but hadn’t found the time to really focus on these things. Within a few minutes, she’d agreed a VIP Day for her business was a good idea and got back to me that week with an upcoming day she’d blocked out to spend the entire day focused on her own business.
And let me tell you, it’s incredible how much she moved forward in ONE DAY.
She took a ton of items that had been lingering on her to-do list for months and crossed them off in one day. Everything from creating new SOPs, to outlining a refreshed customer service experience for her clients, and so many other things that had been weighing her down.
This is what being a Next Level Entrepreneur is all about.
A Next Level Entrepreneur looks ahead and plans accordingly. They MAKE and TAKE the time to invest in their own business. I am about to make seven figures in my business because I dedicate time to my business, not just to my clients’ businesses and the things that I'm putting out there for them. I am just as dedicated to my own growth.
So I want you to ask yourself, “How much time am I dedicating to my own growth?”
Have you ever invested in a VIP Day for your business? What would be the value, to you, in truly investing in your own accelerated outcomes?
Now, imagine that you dedicate a day every quarter where you’re going to spend it working solely ON your business. You’re not going to respond to client emails, you’re not going to respond to your team; you’re going to put someone else in charge and you are literally going to take a full day to focus on your business.
What kind of results could you create? What kind of intentions could you set? And now, imagine you don't just do it alone.
Here’s why Next Level Entrepreneurs always have their own coaches.
VIP Days are incredibly impactful on their own, but they are a whole other level of amazing when done with a coach.
I do it with a coach, and I believe every single entrepreneur should have a coach. Coaches are able to help us move past the things that keep us stuck and help us see beyond the minutiae of what’s holding us back so we can focus on the bigger picture. The same is true for VIP Days done with a coach. A coach will make your VIP Day both easier and more productive.
When you have someone that can lead you through activities and exercises designed to help you uncover things that may have been getting in your way of moving forward, together you can create new outcomes, create a new reality, and create new results that can lead to your business growing bigger, better, faster.
With that guidance, you will complete your VIP Day in a way that allows you to hit the ground running in your business. This VIP Day on your business leads to freedom: Freedom from your to-do list, freedom from the pressure of having to do research, freedom from wasting time on trial and error on things that maybe you aren't an expert in, and freedom to know how to focus on the things you’re incredible at and outsource/delegate the rest.
Your next step:
Your challenge right now is to consider how much time you actually spend on your business. And, if this is something you want (NEED!) to be doing more of, it’s time you made a plan for your next VIP Day for your own business.
A lot of times, people will say to me, Jen, I can't believe it's the end of the year. I had all these things I was going to launch and I just couldn't get to them. I guess now I'm going to have to wait to get to them next year.
Don’t let this be you, year after year. Don’t get so focused on helping your clients that you forget to focus on growing YOUR business.
