Why is it Taking So Darn Long To Build My Business?

I was having a conversation with a coaching client the other day.  He’s been working his own business for about 10 years now and he’s frustrated!  Here’s what he said to me:

It used to be so easy to market my business online.  I would buy an email list and send out a few emails telling them how having their own business can allow them to fire their boss and have financial freedom.  Next think I knew, I had a whole bunch of people replying wanting more information.  Quite a few of those would join my business.

I asked him “Where are all of those people now?”  He replied that only a small amount of them were still involved in the business.  None were actually working it.  Those who did stay, stayed for the products.

HHMMM…so, those things that you thought were working years ago really didn’t work after all, did they?

People today have heard all of the promises and B.S.  Most people have either been burned by MLM/network marketing or they know someone who has.

So…how do you get past that?

1.  Create relationships with people before they buy your product or join your business.  Social networking is a great way to accomplish this.

2.  Don’t make promises.  Be honest with people.   You are building a business to last a lifetime, not running a “Get Rich Quick” scam.  Let people know up front that this is a real business.  It takes time, money and effort to build.  Financial and time freedom only come AFTER years of hard work.

Those methods may not see instant results, but they will see LASTING results.People will be more likely to stick it out knowing that they are going to have to put in work and time to get results.

I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve talked to that tell me things like “I’ve been talking to everyone for 3 months and am not making any money yet” or “I’ve been putting my business on facebook and twitter and no one is joining.”

That’s because a real business takes time to build and because you can’t just shove your business in people’s faces and expect them to join.

Have an Awesome Day,

Free Life and Business Coaching?

How do you make money online?  You charge people for your expertise and/or knowledge.

I love the fact that so many people come to me for life and business advice.

With that said, I can no longer spend hours and hours on the phone consulting for free.  There are many of you who have been calling and emailing over the past few weeks wanting me to call you to answer “a quick question about…”.

While I would LOVE to be able to work for free, it is no longer feasible for me to give away my time.   You may think that 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there isn’t a lot.  But…it is when it’s 15 or 20 people per week who want “just a few minutes” of my time, it adds up.  If I give away just 15 minutes of free consulting every week to just 15 people, that’s almost FOUR HOURS of my time that I did not get paid on.

If you need time with me and need my help with something, send me an EMAIL at roxanne at roxannegreen dot com and request a quote.  Let me know what your needs are.  I will be happy to give you a quote for coaching based on your needs.

If you have never worked with me before, feel free to visit HERE and fill out the form for a free 30 minute consulting session.  DO NOT fill out this form if you’ve already had one or more free email or phone helps from me.  ONE free 30 minute consulting session per lifetime.

Why am I doing this?  One of the things I do is to teach people how to make money from home.  I would NEVER teach you to give away your time for free.  We all have to give away some free material.  For example, my free 30 minute coaching session or my free audios or my free ebooks.  But…we do NOT have to give away everything for free.  That is how to NOT make money from home, not how TO make money from home.
