Add a nought to change your thinking

Sometimes, as speakers, authors and coaches, you need a little boost to our thinking, to make you think bigger. The way you do for our clients. Thinking bigger contextualises your current reality and can pull you out of small thinking, comfort and just doing what you’ve always done.

A prompt to ‘think bigger’.

When we run our Business Boost Day inside our membership, the monthly progress check and update session that everyone dreads yet loves, we love to stretch boundaries. Thinking differently is vital when we are a business. Getting different perspectives is stimulating and contextualising. There’s nothing like accountability. We think one of the things they love most about it though, is that chance to step back and think about their businesses.

Just for you, just for fun — you don’t even have to tell anyone!

Here’s a great challenge for your mind and your business: ‘add a nought’. Given that we’ve got just over a third of the year left, it’s a good time to think about where the money is coming from over those months, and to challenge yourself to go that little bit bigger. A great exercise is to think about your income or revenue and then add a zero at the end of each product — just to see what that would look like and then do your projections. Your £500 product becomes a £5000 product, your £27 product becomes £270. 

Once you’ve done this, stand back and smile at what THAT might do for you and for your business. And THEN, and this is the magic question, ask yourself:

  • What can I do to make this happen?
  • What could be done differently?
  • What needs to be added, taken away or amended?
  • How close can I get to it?
  • What wouldn’t happen or be missing if I did this?

Who knows what might happen!?

Do this once a year to just spur your creativity or to indeed get brave about putting up your prices — maybe not quite by adding a zero, but look at what becomes possible value wise. One reason we do this in the group setting is because it can seem challenging — it’s almost always a mindset play, as well as something that has practical considerations. So, we like to be around to support when asking this question. Make sure you get support if this question triggers you. Feel free to reach out inside our free community. We’d love to know how you get on with this little nudge. It might just be the difference that makes the difference.

If you want any support to do this, reach out for a call or join The Connection Hub to get access to over 200 resources to keep you growing your speaker, author, and coach business.
