Sometimes it takes time to realize that you should be listening to yourself.
I had the exciting opportunity to talk to one of Tony Robbin’s right hand men. When I say right hand man, I mean, he closes the show for Tony, he is an expert business consultant working with huge brands like Costco and is able to command $40k a month for his consultation services. This guy is no joke.
As we were talking, I started telling him that my company is finally ready to take on more clients, and he responded – well, I know a great PR company that can help. To which I replied with silence. It actually took me a minute to figure out he was talking about my company! Could I really be this dense?
Then he said something that was so simple, and something that literally woke me up. He said, “Why aren’t you doing for yourself what you do for everyone else?” DUH. Why wasn’t I?
I’d been so busy putting things in place to grow my client’s businesses that I completely forgot to grow mine!
Embarrassingly, it took this slap to wake me up. What on Earth was I thinking?
So it was with this, that I started to take my own advice. Can I just tell you how exciting it is to do marketing for yourself? Taking a step back to reevaluate can be daunting but boy it can be fun, too! I challenge anyone who is struggling to simply change your vantage point.
Sometimes a different perspective can turn you on your head. It sure did for me.
I am proud to report that I’ve spoken with more people about our marketing services in the last 2 weeks than I had in the last 6 months combined! Amen to that.
