What pregnant with goal???

Yes! I am so happy to be able to best described how I did it for tis like nuturing your unborn child!  In fact now I think about it, how could I have missed this analogy?

The idea

Kissing

Kissing

 You have to first meet some one that is going to take your breath away, make you feel so alive and vibrant that the very look onto him makes you shudder. This means that there is contact, synergy of sorts between you two, and by extrapolation your souls. For me anyhow, I would go weak at the knees 20 years on – that is how strong it has to be. How you just radiate under each others simple touch and the unison via a kiss is indescribable, and the rest well…

Just like partner your business must be looked for and into.

Due your due diligence, research, see what others are doing within the business you may be looking into – not what people are saying about it for they may have had a bad experience and just be slagging off!  This is why I fell head over heals for the SFM Six Figure Mentors, they let us test drive for 30 days no questions asked if we chose to go our separate ways. In the mean time I am allowed to take full advantage of all the back office.  Their training is second to none and the community is like a huge mattress of soft feathers to fall back on – like a quilt cool in the summer,hot in the winter but always there to catch you and cuddle you with love, gratitude and kind words.  You must be in love with the Business Model you are chosing, this is critical for we are talking about gaining skill sets for life and best be at ease with them and be taught by people whom you respect.

Positioning and Planning.

Although it is not called that for a couple we do do it! We plan our marriage and we position oursleves with respect to the number of children we shall have as a couple.  We then traditionally plan to get a good job or some job and work up the corporate ladder so as to have a big house and huge garden, perhaps today move a couple of times house and corporate company so as to retire comfortably!!!!! This is not for me never was but still we did plan four children and as an Artisan Entrepreneur in what I consider to be a really hostile environment for the admin side – the French are not renown for the ease of setting up businesses… (but I digress!) and get the company to grow to leverage the ‘man hours’,  for want of a better word, so as to be less present on the physical side of the plumbing business and deal more with the customers. My husband was already very high on customer experience and taught me a thing or two 🙂

With your business it is the same, you must position your self to make the best use of your time and leverage the internet with it’s +2 billion users! So there are four main positions and this is just an image to show you – I have an article here

 

The producing…

Just as it is very enjoyable in a human relationship to produce babies so such it be in your business!!!!  You sweat and toil, you progress, you regress, you make bounding leaps forwards, you learn new skill sets which you put into application the sooner the better.  So building your online business is fun, enjoyable and damn hard work! This is planting the seeds of ideas, you begin to see the possibilities opening up to you, the power of your own self, your self worth and you begin to think a little differently.  The harder you push upwards and onwards the better you become! But just like in couples the business can stagnate and you can get into procrastination mode – that is such a bad way but we all go there – the next step is too big, or we must get accustomed to being in our comfort zone! Or we can see what the seed is growing into and it is scary so we acclimatise…

 The pregnancy is announced…

I recall for my first one that a friend of mine who had a 7 month old baby was asking me questions on the birth and my fears, so as to help me through them I guess? “What, oh the child birthing part, I haven’t really thought about it” to which she was speachless! “I guess, yes it must come out…!”  but I had not really thought about it on a etheral plain… Just a metaphysical one! I had started to do everything in my power to give this little being a smooth life, very even tempered child brings on a balanced adult, no?! So I stopped all caffeine, alcohol, kept the spicy food, the cat clawing me and did lots of yoga to get into myself and my pregnancy and lots of exercise so my own body would be healthy. Homeopathy came to be as did the spirulina algae drinks …

So for your business…

The seed that has been planted and is being nurtured must have the same attention as your own body during this time. So you read, you start to listen to people that you may have perhaps laughed at a little before, the talk of the universe and chakras, mind growth, mind set all these words come into your business!!!

But this is not business people will tell you- and I can now answer
‘It all starts with your mind!’ The higher up you go the more you will earn and the more people will be disagreeable with you ! The stronger you have to believe in yourself to stay focused.  So yes you will meditate, visualise and hold onto these for dear life at times. These are the only thing that matters for the people do not like the new you, the free you, they are scared.  So you know this and understand it, after all you were there not so long ago en?!

 

Then it comes – THE BIRTH…

Birth

Birth

Yes you are shitting bricks here – labour contractions have started – in French they call this Le Travail – the work!!! and you have no idea what is going to happen, how high will the pain be, will I be up to parr? will it last long? The list is long but for you no rest a wave is coming and you must be ready for the ride… I was in labour 3 days before it kicked in, so for 3 days I was walking, walking reading gently noticing the tidal waves were on approach.  They told us at my clinic not to wake the husband before vital, so he slept and I walked… On the fateful day I was either in the huge bathtub or walking. Finally the baby’s head comes out and as we did not know the sex of the child it was the father who said ‘Oh look it’s xxxxxxxxxx’ and that was such a moment! (Even though I knew what x was already…) and it is over. Whilst the father and baby go to shower, dress whatever you are left blissfully alone – 1st time in 9 months ! For 2 hours you are not allowed to move to prepare yourself for the feeding that is going to drain you much much more than the pregnancy ever did!!  Always have a glass of water next to you 😉

So for your business…

To bring that seed into fruition is a painstakingly slow process when you are living it, or so it seems! Just today a friend wrote on Facebook that she had been with SFM only 4 months now and she just stopped to look at where she was… She was astounded with the progress she had made – she can not only whip up a website in a jiffy (thanks to Digital Business Lounge), she had Marketing 101 under her belt, was doing lead capture pages, on two challenges of videos and blogging and generating leads! WOW.  But on the other side there is the strive of  the naysayers
