You are a business owner now. No matter your profession from direct sales to coaching to a service and product based business YOU are now solely and completely responsible for your success and or failure.
That was a really heavy, scary sentence huh? It’s true. But it’s scary as hell.
I want you to know this because with truth comes power…even fear. But these feelings can be a catalyst for doing what you need to in order to be successful.
As I celebrate my 6th year of owning Belle Consulting I find a sense of accomplishment. This feeling wasn’t from huge numbers such as a social media following or money made.
It’s a feeling of survival, of beating the odds.
A former mentor once told me that most businesses fail in the first 2 years the rest fail in the first 5. The select few that make it past that 5-year mark are those that have the grit to go as far as they want for as long as they want.
Well guess what I did it. Belle Consulting is now 6 years old.
WOW! Take a minute and soak that in with me. It’s glorious.
Several people on LinkedIn asked me what was my secret. (You gotta love LinkedIn and those work anniversaries.) What is it that helped me get to six years?
That question made me stop and consider. While there were many answers that built off each other I found there was one constant that allowed me to do what I loved for so long.
So here it is…WEBSITE.
I have had an updated website that I blogged on, marketed, revamped and constantly loved for the past 6 years.
If there was one piece of advice I could give a new entrepreneur it would have your own website. Do you have your own website? Do you love it? Is it time for a revamp?
With that in mind I’m celebrating my anniversary by giving away free 30 minute website consultations for the month of July. If you’d like one call/text or email for an appointment.
