Many times in my networking and meeting with prospects I hear the response "I cannot afford to pay a coach or for consulting right now".
The average person spends almost 50% of their time at work in a state of non productivity.
If you own your business this means that you are only productive half the amount of hours that you are dedicating away from your family, your hobbies you love, and your life.
We can see this easily when in order to accomplish the 40 hours we set out to do what we are working 80-100 hours a week.
What I can tell you is that if you work more than 10 hours a day for over 10 days your productivity decreases even more so you end up working upwards of 100 hours in order to compensate.
The benefit of setting goals and staying on task is that you are accomplishing more in your business and focused on the areas that will lead you to quicker growth and increased success in a shorter period of time leaving you with more time for your family, your hobbies, and your life.
If you make $100 an hour for your time and you are losing 18 hours a week you are losing $1,800 a week! Even if you are more productive than that but are not focused on the elements of your business that make you money and reward your resource investment you are still losing money and and wasting your energy.
This is why it is so important that each one of our services with every consultant have a money back guarantee. If you invest in a small $300 mastermind program you will most definitely get your $300 back in your productivity and earnings from one simple hour of support and guidance a week.
Now if you can make $300 more in one hour a week imagine what would happen if you invested 5 hours a week with a consultant or a coach. And the beauty is that you do not have to have the consultant sitting with you in your office over your shoulder.
Just by having a strategic plan and the accountability and investment of a person like Todd, or I you have the guaranteed benefit of more success from your efforts and a lot more earnings and growth in your business-for YEARS after our work has begun.
The second you decide to invest in yourself your business' value grows. Just from making that decision.
Why is this?
Because I cannot buy what is in your head. I need processes, systems, and measurable outcomes, I need the plan, the progress, the journey and the passion in a way that I can duplicate and replicate and make money from.
Here is the secret "YOU NEED THESE TOO!"
You cannot operate a business successfully for any extended period of time by just repeating what is in your head. Establishing clarity not only makes your company more valuable for sale, but more marketable to clients, more manageable for you as the owner and to your employees and staff to support. This is the secret to growth and longevity in any business. Consistency and investment where it counts and right now-that $1,800 return on investment comes from you investing in yourself.
So the next time you hear a client state that they cannot afford a service like an accountant, a consultant, a social media expert. Think of this article and share it with them so that they know that they are worth the investment and so is their company!
