Are you afraid of mistakes, or do you stare them in the eye and laugh and roll around on the ground?
Today I want to share an interview with Christine Richmond, my local mentor and successful business woman, as we discuss the perils of mistakes and errors. It’s all part of a new book I’m working on, and boy am I excited about it. I can’t offer too much information right now, but if you want to learn more, please sign up for updates HERE.
Be Brave & Start Early
We look back at when Christine first began and what she would do differently. The biggest thing is to actually start the whole process. Looking back, she wishes she had done it sooner.
The Mistake Of Dollar Eyes
We move onto the main event…her big mistake. It was fairly early in her business when things were going okay, but it was still hard to say no. She didn’t like the job at hand, but the money was good. Dollar eyes were had and the rest became history.
Self Employed, But Not
She was her own boss, but this client took up so much time that she felt like a normal employee. It wasn’t what she wanted, and she soon realised she needed to get out of it. However, with a contract signed and sealed, this proved more difficult than anticipated.
Move Toward The Top
She went above her usual command post and spoke to someone she first dealt with a year or two earlier. This was the key to getting out of the contract and allowing her business to blossom. It ruffled a few feathers, but it needed to be done.
Lessons Were Learned
This hard fought few months helped Christine realise what she did and didn’t want to do. It caused a few hiccups, but no lasting damage. Nowadays, she thinks carefully about taking on a new client, whether it’s right for her as an individual and to not go where the money is. Money and happiness are not always on the same page.
Please watch the interview above (it’s a good one) and if you’d like to sign up for details about my new book, please sign up here.
Top day to you,
