I’m back again with success tips for women entrepreneurs. If you’re still having trouble figuring out how to build the business you want then you may want to watch this. In this post, I’m sharing the 4 skills every woman needs if she want to have success as an entrepreneur.
Just so you know, it’s not tactical stuff, because let’s face it, there’s a ton of tactics and strategies out there. I’m talking about some shifts you have to make to your mindset and your being to go from employee to entrepreneur.
The Side-Hustle To Full-Hustle Checklist
But first, I have a cool checklist for you (because you know how I LOVE a good checklist!). In it, you’ll get a the keys to going from side-hustle to full-hustle in 12 months. It’s a step-by-step process that I’ve research and gathered from 3 years in business and 2 years full-time. Just click the image below to get it!
Building your business mindset
The first 3 skills kind of build on one another, and at the top you want to start developing a business mindset or the mind of an entrepreneur. This involves a lot of self-awareness and self-development to come the woman and leader that you need to be in order to run a successful, scalable business.
Your mindset is important for many reason, like:
- Creating balance
- Knowing when to push forward or pull back
- And charging what you’re worth
Become more visionary than technician
When we first think about starting a business, we think about the work we would enjoy doing, which is the technician. As you start to think of ways to scale your business (visionary) some of the work of the technician has to be delegated.
This is one of the hardest things for women entrepreneurs but it’s so necessary.
Disclaimer: If your goal is not to scale but just to run a business as a solopreneur then you may not think this applies to you, but it does. In the video, I explain in detail why it is.
Keep systemizing top of mind
It’s going to take some time to figure out what your process is, but don’t wait until you do to start documenting your process.
Keep track of the steps it takes to write a blog post, create a video, launch a program or course. The earlier you do this the better (and faster!) it will be to see progress and have rapid growth.
I personally use Asana for all of my projects, tasks and processes. It save a bunch of time and when I bring on a new team member it much easier to train them on the ways and culture of my company.
Learn how to fail and fail again
Getting used to failures is probably the hardest thing to do as an entrepreneur. It’s hard to not take failures personally when you’re putting so much time and effort into building your business and brand.
It’s important to understand that experiencing failure isn’t a reflection of who you are or that your business is a failure. It just means that strategy or tactic wasn’t a good fit for your business.
It could also mean that you need to give it more time, which definitely gets underestimated.
In the end, perseverance and patience is needed to have success and become the entrepreneur that you desire to be.
I hope this article helps you to create or improve your mindset and personal development plan so that success doesn’t have to be hard to achieve.
