When talking to brilliant business owners like yourself, I hear a lot of talk about being socially responsible. Meaning… wanting to be of service, make a difference, and have an impact. (So important!)
Having a positive social impact is imperative and is tied directly to our purpose and our ‘More Life Directive’… yet too many women use this as a reason why they can’t charge what they’re worth or why they don’t like engaging in sales.
They just want to make a difference without looking at the business behind making a difference.
I get it, 100%.
But let me ask you this… what’s actually more socially responsible? Making a great living while helping the world AND being able to give back… or staying poor and not being able to do your work in this world or give back?
The truth is…
The two are not mutually exclusive, and saying they are is keeping you small. When you play small, you’re not able to have the impact you desire… it just can’t happen!
You can’t change the world if you believe charging what you’re worth or asking people to invest in your product or service is ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’ in one way or another.
This is a double bind and leads to constant self-sabotage.
Instead, I want you to focus on how making a TON of money allows you to better impact the world around what you care about most.
- What would it allow you to do better?
- Who would you be able to bring on to support you and others?
- How would you be able to expand your reach with more ease?
- Where could you reinvest that money to help more people?
Write your answers down right now.
Then, FOCUS on the actions that will move the needle most in your business (think sales, marketing, and anything that gets you in front of your ideal people).
Get out there and make that impact ALONG WITH the money you’re worth.
