I was speaking with a new client recently and I inquired on how she found me. “I was given the name of three people and you were the only one that followed up.”
You may be so close to landing your next BIG juicy red-apple client and you don’t even realize it. You may be missing one essential (easy) step to help you stand out in your industry. Follow-up.
On today’s episode of my award-winning podcast, ‘She’s Got Moxie’, I’m sharing a replay of a teleclass I did earlier this year, “How to Create Masterful Connections That Generate High-Caliber, Profitable Referrals.”
Follow-up is something that anyone can do. It doesn’t matter how much (or how little) education you have, it doesn’t discriminate, and it levels the playing field.
Here’s another (deeper) reason I think people don’t follow-up: Fear of failure. “If I don’t follow-up, I’ll be spared the feeling of rejection.”
I’ve never achieved Big LEAPS in my business from social media or sitting at my desk staring into my laptop. The big income leaps (think 25% – 50%) have been directly related to networking and cultivating collaborative relationships.
This episode is chock full of great tips and tricks. I’ll share:

Did you know that only 2% of women entrepreneurs break the million-dollar mark?
When you think about the work you put in, that’s a hard pill to swallow. So, why the big gap between our efforts and earnings?
I believe what stops women from breaking their income ceiling is not a lack of drive or determination.
What stops you is letting the same old systems and routines RUN you and your business, which keeps you satisfactorily underperforming, year after year.
Deep down you know that what got you here today is not all you need to accomplish your bigger vision.

After I released my first book, “What’s Next?: The 7 Steps to Discover Your Big Idea and Create a Wildly Successful Business” in the fall of 2013, I was overcome with a feeling of emptiness. I was living in my body but there should have been a sign around my neck that said “unoccupied.” I had given so much of my creative energy to the writing process for the book. Oddly enough, I was beginning to feel the “What’s Next?” question floating around inside my own head.
Here’s what I know for sure: I LOVE my business and my clients – Period. I sometimes feel like I’m in a dream and someone is going to wake me up and tell me it’s all over, get dressed and report to my cubicle by 9am.
But…something was stirring inside of me…
I knew change was on the horizon. I just didn’t know what it was.
I took the same advice I give to all the fabulous women entrepreneurs and business owners I work with: “Don’t rush the process. Allow the idea to unfold organically in it’s own time.” Intuitively, I knew that if I rushed this evolution, I would waste valuable time, energy and effort and wind up in the wrong direction.
Imagine… finally discovering someone who truly cares about your success and believes in you. Someone who has the knowledge and a step-by-step approach to help you get clear, confident and focused on your vision and dream as a woman entrepreneur. Learn More
