What trends should all business owners look out for throughout the Summer?
Given all that is going on in the world, it is tough to chart the waters ahead in this vastness of change. In my business I am seeing 90% of my clients that I am reading for and/or coaching are reinventing themselves. How many times do we get to reinvent ourselves in our life? If you look around (not compare) at the people who are not swaying with the wind, their stalks are breaking.
This is a Summer of Change.
From my experience I suggest not only looking at the business aspect, trends, bottom line etc, but at yourself as well. Your business is a reflection of you, so this is a Summer to redefine your whys and hows and embrace the risks. Can you expand and open your offerings to include another customer base, something you've been wanting to do? Are you spread thinly offering too many things? Perhaps course correct into a more specialized focus, the one you enjoy the most! Who brings the most value to your clients and success? Rewrite your offerings, revamp your website, laying a fresh coat of paint, and buying something living to nurture will bring new enthusiasm and passion to what you do every day. Declutter and move things around in your office space and desk area. This will allow new clients to find you, old clients to return, word of mouth referrals to peak. You will think more clearly and more supportive ideas will birth.
From my experience, about 40% of my clients who had a difficult time with their parents growing up, are experiencing vivid dreams and experiencing similar relationship problems in their awake time with co-workers, friends or intimate relationships. There is a theme happening and if we can come to peace with those dynamics within ourselves, we will see a huge shift in our outer world, translating and reflecting more success, financial abundance and harmony in your business. Embrace them and don't fight it. Write the book, switch things up, be adamant and raise the bar of the people who are the face of your business. We are community based, and the community that finds us wants to feel authentic happiness in the service they receive. This Summer is paving the way for the next decade, and clearly the old ways we are doing business are not working the same way anymore. Have fun, re-invent and I wish my Alignable family a transformational Summer!
