Imagine this, you finally broke through the barriers of success because you have a business most profitable and told your boss, “I quit.”
Even without a two-week notice. You were just that done.
You aren’t even worried about how it looks because you have spent the last year working on weekends, waking up early, and splitting your time among all your responsibilities as much as possible. And it has all paid off to this moment of you telling your boss that your entire focus will be on “your” business. (That’s even if you care to tell them why you're quitting.)
This business that you built grants you the financial freedom to buy whatever you want(without even looking at a price tag), to do what you love(instead of doing what you hate for 8 hours a day), and most importantly- more time with those you love(because you built a business around a schedule that works for how you want to spend your time).
You can spend days as you see fit, wake up when you want, and travel anywhere you want while still being able to manage your businesses. You even have an assistant who you decide to tell to cancel your meetings for the day.
Because you decided hanging out on the beach with your spouse while the kids run around is more important.
None of this is possible if you aren’t a driving force to achieve a business most profitable. There are certain skills that you must have if you want to quit your 9-5 and become a profitable business owner. Ultimately, not improving yourself as a person, the side hustler, is how you will stay in the same rat race that you are in instead of achieving the financial freedom that you seek.
We will discuss 6 very achievable, actionable skills to drive your entrepreneur’s success which in turn creates a business most profitable.
But first, I want to caution you. These high-growth skills are not intended for every entrepreneur.
If you are lazy and want to create more excuses why you can’t do something(like when my wife asks me to clean the bathroom) then this post is not aimed to help you.
A business most profitable is an easier road to travel when you understand your market and the opportunity that there is for growth. Doing real research and understanding your target audience is a common misstep when trying to grow your side hustle. When you uniquely understand the problems of your tribe, your position as a leading solution to the problem will increase profits. Build those relationships to build more opportunities for success in your business. This important work isn’t for the uninspired, your dreams are much too great to avoid doing this, right?
Some side hustlers may only be stuck in a phase of daydreaming about the destination of success. Growth in your side hustle to a profitable business will come from actually having a vision outlined for the path of your business. When this is done, a clear path to your dreams of leaving that 9-5 are found. This produces the “how” of your business process. The determination to drive the vision thus drives your success. What is the vision of your business? Is every day a step toward that view? Excuses won’t get you far. Except punching that clock on Monday wishing it was Friday again.
Fear is the main killer of any business that wants to be the most profitable. Not everything will go according to plan but you still can make the best choices possible to minimize your fear. With every decision you make in your business, do it with a purpose that stays on task with your vision. See things all the way through. Social Media advertising has popularized the new course launch game from all the popular “coaches.” This compounds your fear that you are missing out on something or not educated enough to do something in your side hustle.
Every time you open an app as a business owner you see an ad for a business coach, copywriter coach, podcast coach, blog coach, etc. Don’t be confused by all the noise and work towards your own vision. Limit the risk in your business by not continuously switching up your operations. This confuses your potential clients. And a confused client doesn’t buy. Would you?
Do you actually want to grow your side hustle into a profitable full-time business? I hope so since you have come this far. Most people do not understand the change in yourself and your surroundings that must take place to achieve that goal of leaving the 9-5 grind. Increasing the size of your business is directly aligned with your ambitions. The business only goes as the owner goes. And a business will show an owner’s weaknesses 100%. So, be positive about your growth and let your ambition empower your decision-making that aligns with your vision.
I don’t think you should be in business if you’re afraid to put yourself out there. Well, I will say it is OK to be afraid to put yourself out there. Don’t be in business if the fear absolutely stops you from putting yourself out there. Have a positive attitude towards increased revenue in your business. Afraid to be on camera? Do it anyway, think of the people you are helping by giving them a solution to their problem. Scared to post your piece of content? Post it anyway, for starters, any feedback is a way to help you get better.
Second, even if it helps one person, you have shaped someone’s future in a positive light. And guess what. They know other people that they can tell about you and your positive selling solutions. The main idea about selling...don’t be needy. People can smell it a mile away.
I have seen someone post recently in a Facebook group about how they can’t come up with any new ideas for their business. This type of thinking will leave you stuck and a business most profitable is nowhere in sight. You don’t have to come up with any new ideas. Be innovative on items already in your niche. What can you make as your own to stand out? For example, as a different approach for content on my social media, I have started to go back through all my older newsletter emails and repurpose those as IG/FB posts. I didn’t have to come up with new content, I just freshen up a bit of my old stuff. And over time, as you grow, more content ideas will come.
As of note, I go into more detail about being creative and innovative in this podcast episode.
As with everything in your business, the choice is yours if you want to work on yourself. Doing so can increase the odds that you build a business most profitable. Being a driving force to quit your 9-5, achieve financial freedom, and help your family is an everyday decision. Nothing happens if you aren’t taking action towards that daily. No matter how big or small the task.
