What is the #1 thing that will help you grow your business?

Have you ever asked or been asked this question? How have you responded?

It isn’t fancy marketing gimmicks. It’s not Facebook ads. Nor is it expensive equipment.

The #1 thing that will help you grow your business is way deeper than that and I talk all about it in this week’s episode.

Data from the BLS shows that approximately 20% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. Only 25% of new businesses make it to 15 years or more.

Why is that? Amanda Walker- business coach

Starting a business isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of tenacity, dedication, and hard work.

During the business building process, many things come up that business owners have to confront.

And sometimes they don’t know how to do it on their own.

Let’s talk about my business journey….

I literally fell into entrepreneurship because my own personal health journey created an external result that led people to start asking for my help.  It’s evolved over the years.

I first focused on macro nutrition coaching. While that is sometimes a tool I still use…I quickly found out that the number of carbs, fat, and protein a woman takes in isn’t really the reason they don’t lose weight.  It’s way deeper than food.

That led me to dive deeper into life coaching and truly help clients create a DEEP transformation that is beyond weight loss. This part sets me on 🔥🔥🔥.

Now…after building my coaching practice for almost 5 years I have many women reaching out to help them overcome their fears and overwhelm so they too can build a business.

They feel that fire but are so stuck in the belief that they aren’t qualified, they don’t know enough or don’t have the time.

I hear you and I am listening.

Here is what I am learning…each of these hats I’ve worn has led to the next step in my evolution as a business owner…and I AM HERE FOR IT.

While I never dreamed I would be coaching women in business…the same practices I teach in weight loss apply to business too.  Results come by managing the mind and being among other women who desire the same in a powerful community.

This is something I believe I have been called to do…to help women break through the thoughts that are keeping them stuck in a life that lacks purpose.

I want you to know…you can do and have anything you want in life.  Any result is possible and that is what I want you to feel and learn by being with me here in every single I write weekly.  I am showing up every week here because I want you to become the woman you most desire to be.

Some common questions new business owners ask are:

To be successful, I thought I needed:

  • Fancy marketing strategies
  • To build an online course
  • FB ads

But what I REALLY needed was a business coach to help me:

  • Hold space for the hard questions
  • Learn how to manage my mind
  • Recognize that the highs and lows are rough, yet sweet
  • Expand my thinking
  • Push me THROUGH when I want to go around
