Or…at least read how this one lovely fellow did…
I recently received this incredible private message (totally out of the blue).
“Hey [Erin] just wanted to share a big business win thanks to one of your blog posts!
I closed a corporate deal with a big American company (you know, one of those tech companies that everyone knows). That could be a game changer for our business. Initial project will probably be $60K – $70K followed by more business. We were all happy and celebrating when yesterday the client said, “Oh, it’s taking longer to get vendors onboarded now. It may take you 6 months”.
My initial reaction was going on a negative downward spiral. “Fuck, what am I going to do? I can’t wait 6 months just to get this started” within a few minutes my brain was already telling me everything was going to fail and I would be homeless and starving…
Then, I remembered your articles about successful people asking better questions. And I asked, “Okay, given this current situation what is the best thing I could do?”
I came up with the idea of maybe billing through an already registered vendor. I went through my whole network and found someone who had worked in the past with the corporate client who will be willing to do the billing.
I immediately messaged the company who said. “Oh that’s a great idea, let’s get this project kicked off next week, and in the meantime we will continue going through your registration process”.
So, in minutes I went through “homeless and starving” in a negative mood that could have lasted days—to a BIG win for my business.
So, thank you so much for that!”
So much good!
Now, I would say, how are you going to work a little bit of the same mindset magic for yourself today?
How might you be able to change the questions you’re asking yourself to change your outcomes?
When you're tired of getting in your own way, and you know you're capable of SO much more, it's time to talk to us.
