I don’t mind if you don’t get it

I have learnt (like every good lesson—the hard way!) to not try and ‘convince’ anyone.

In fact, these days I’ll often make it very clear that if someone is absolutely convinced that what I am saying makes no sense and will never ever ever work I’m cool about it. Of course, I let them know I think that’s not correct and suggest (politely, of course!) that they can tell that to all my clients and a whole bunch of other people who it is working for and see if they remain convinced. But I don’t mind.

Have you got what it takes to be a Business Celebrity?

1

Actually that might be a misleading question – its not so much about if you have what it takes to be a business celebrity but more about what you still want to achieve that means you want to be a business celebrity… let me explain:

Business Celebrities are people who are giving everything they have. They are doing exactly what they are here on the planet to do (and that’s not me being all ‘save the world’ – although if that’s your celebrity calling fantastic).

Give yourself permission (er, NOW)

1

Permission is something we don’t actually need, but SO many of us feel we do. I know that I used to want it. A lot.

Are you taking yourself seriously?

Taking yourself seriously is something you have to do if you really want to BE a Business Celebrity (as opposed to just follow the idea and ‘do’ Business Celebrity as a process).

Publish ‘something’ to sell more

You don’t need a website to be able to sell your Thing. OF COURSE a website helps and provides a great focal point for prospective clients to learn about you, understand your Thing, see examples of your work, read your story, watch you in action (assuming you have videos!) and compare your offers. But you don’t need a website.
