3 habits that help you build your business to 6 figures and beyond

3 habits that help you build your business to 6 figures and beyond

In this article I’m going to share with you the 3 key habits that help you build your business to 6-figures and beyond. 

People often ask me how on earth I went from broke, single mum on government benefits to creating not just one, but TWO multiple 6-figure businesses.

And how I managed to spend loads of quality time with my kids along the way.

In fact, at one stage I also had a 3rd importing business and ebay store, I played in a live band (one that actually did paid gigs, so I had to practise & rehearse), was writing a book, speaking regularly and doing the crazy ‘mum’s taxi’ routine most nights. (You know, eating my dinner and working a little more in the car at kids’ soccer practise)

Yes, maybe that was a tad too much at once, but it did seem quite do-able at the time and I coped quite well!

I credit one simple motto:

“It’s the little things that make a big difference”

 

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

I never tried to make massive changes or do massive things all in one hit. 

I just did lots of little things, but I did them CONSISTENTLY.

So out of all the habits that help you build your business, the number 1 habit that will help you reach your goals is:

Do the little things – but most importantly, do them CONSISTENTLY!

Habit number 2 makes habit number 1 even more powerful.
And that is: Think before you act!

The more you have on the go, the more valuable your time becomes. So the last thing you need is to go off half-cocked and try to achieve your goals by flinging spaghetti at the wall or putting in loads of hours and hard work.

That’s hope and hope does not get you far. A plan however, will.

In fact, being a mum who could only work during school hours (and during soccer practise, lol) meant I HAD to be super choosey with what I actually did. This was a massive gift!

Stopping to consider WHY you are about to do something and whether it’s worth it – or even necessary – will always be time well spent.

Habit Number 3 is: 

Always look for a more effective way.

When I was running my finance business, it was the norm for brokers to do home visits. Everyone expected it. You’d see your clients when it suited THEM – on their lunch break or after work.

I decided that was super ineffective and so I rented an office and stopped going out to see clients. I made them come to me during school hours instead.

My colleagues warned me this would kill my business, but guess what?

IT DOUBLED MY BUSINESS!

I was able to see more clients in a day and got more work done between appointments which means I could serve them even better. I was no longer wasting hours in the car each day and having to ask my mum to babysit.

My business was more professional and my clients respected my time more (and I no longer had to explain complex financial concepts while competing with crying babies and leg-humping dogs)

It’s truly not about working harder – it’s about working smarter.

In fact, one of my biggest income days to date was $25,000 earnt while I had my feet dangling in the pool in Bali.

It’s so easy to give in to our ego & just be busy being busy.

But busy is not the aim. Being ‘efficient’ is not the aim either – and neither is being productive’.

Who cares if I’m getting lots done or doing it really fast?
The only thing that matters is if I’m getting the RIGHT stuff done. 

Are the things I’m doing having the biggest and most positive impact possible?

The word for that is EFFECTIVE.

So be EFFECTIVE, not productive (and certainly never aim for busy!)

When you put these 3 habits together, you build an eco-system that helps you build your business with the least amount of effort in the fastest possible way.

These are the habits of 6 and 7 figure CEOs who value their time and carefully consider all their actions.

When you also have a strategic and well designed PLAN to apply these habits to, the result is quite magical.

This is how aligned & sustainable 6-figure+ businesses are built.

Basic Money Management Skills For Women in Business

Basic Money Management Skills For Women in Business

Sadly basic money management skills aren’t usually taught in school – even though they should be – because they’re essential If you want to succeed (especially when you’re in business).

But how are you meant to know what to do with your money, if nobody ever shows you?

So in this video, I am going to give you some practical money advice, and I’m going to share with you the three golden rules for financial success in business and in life.

Back when I was a full-time finance professional, I literally helped thousands of people take control of their money. And there was one very disturbing pattern, because I noticed very quickly that the people with the highest incomes were very often also the ones experiencing the highest levels of money stress.

And this is exactly why in my Magnetic Money program, we marry the magical with the practical. We want you to attract that beautiful high, healthy level of income. And we want you to know how to take care of that money so you can stop worrying about it and actually know how to make your money go to work for you.

As with everything, it’s really critical to get the basics right. So in this video, I am going to cover the three golden rules that underpin all basic money management skills, and which will help you achieve financial success in business and in life. Be sure to stick around until the end, because as a bonus tip, I’m also going to take you through the key bank accounts that you should have for both your business and your personal finances.

So let’s get into it!

Golden rule number one is to always save something.

So back when I was a single, broke mom and I really struggled to even pay the rent, I knew that I needed to change things. I knew that I needed to turn around both my mindset and my financial situation, and also the energy I had around money. I was consumed by stress around money and constantly feeling broke & like there wasn’t enough. And I really needed to shift my focus from being this poverty consciousness to starting to notice that there was money there and start to get some momentum going on a positive level.

So what I did was I made a rule that I would only spend notes. I used cash for everything. I spent only notes and I saved all the coins. And at the end of that first month, I went to the bank and I banked something like $46 in coins. And I started a savings account.

Now, the really interesting thing was that because I was only allowed to spend notes and had to break a note every time I wanted to spend money, it made me really careful and considerate of the money I was spending. So it actually helped me be more mindful and save money as I was going through the month. And that extra money that I saved in coins, I didn’t really feel like it was missing. And at the end of the month, I had $46, which was a huge amount. And the rule was I had to bank all of it. I wasn’t allowed to use it to pay for groceries or anything else. And it helped me feel like no matter what my situation, I was able to still move forward and start accumulating savings. And that really was the start of a whole new paradigm of things starting to shift, of the tide starting to turn.

So no matter what your financial situation is, you always want to save some percentage of your income. In a perfect world, you’d be saving at least 10% of your gross income. But if you can’t start there, start with 1% and then slowly and surely build your way up. Because as you start, you shift your mindset, you shift the energy around money, and you start a whole new practical pattern that says, “I can save. Here’s the evidence.”

And all of that builds momentum and it grows and grows and grows from there.

Golden rule number two is to use percentages.

I already touched on that with golden rule number one, where I suggested that you ultimately aim for saving 10% of your gross income at a minimum. And ultimately, you want to get to something like 20% of your gross income going straight to your investments.

(And if that freaks you out right now, it’s okay…  because as I said, work on percentages and start small).

The reason why working with percentages is so simple, is that you can keep using that same breakdown, no matter what your level of income is. So whether you’re earning a thousand dollars a week or a hundred thousand dollars a week -, if you say that “I’m going to save 10% or 5%” – or whatever the percentage is – the percentage never changes. And so that’s really powerful because it helps you stay on track and it ensures that you always live within your means and that you’re still moving forward. So by having the percentages, it eliminates that temptation of, “Oh, now I’m making more money. How about I spend more money? How about I sign up for a bigger mortgage, a bigger car loan, a bigger holiday, a bigger everything.?”

And before, you know, it, all the money’s just disappearing. And that actually happened to me when my income started to take off and I was making that six figure plus income, but my expenses had all grown to match and there really wasn’t any extra left for me. But by switching to percentages, it meant that I was always allocating money to fun stuff and wealth creation and paying off debt and all the other things that needed to be covered and paid for in right proportions. So the percentages don’t need to change as your income grows, which is a really cool way of making sure that you’re on track, that you’re living within your means, and that you’re also moving forward. So golden rule number two, use percentages.

And then golden rule number three for financial success that should underpin all your basic money management skills is that you get really clear on and you focus on your number one financial priority at any given point in time.

So what this means is that if you want to experience that financial success and move forward and move through your wealth creation plan, you want to make sure that at any given point in time, you are 100% clear on what your current number one focus should be. So that will vary depending on where you’re at in life. At certain stages in life, it might be all about eliminating debt. And then at the next stage in life, it might be about accumulating a buffer – so that should anything happen (like say a global pandemic for example) you have three or even six or maybe 12 months worth of living expenses to fall back on. And at other stages in life, it might be about accumulating money to put into investment or into buying or paying off your first home or boosting your retirement funds.

So it’s important that you continually look at your wealth creation plan and assess “What should my number one priority be right now”, and then within your money management system and the percentages that you’re allocating, there is a certain percentage that gets allocated towards just that one thing right now. And then as that one thing gets ticked off the list, you allocate that same amount of money to the next thing on your list. And you shift your number one priority and your focus to the next thing on your list.

What that does, is it puts you into laser focus mode. And so you accomplish that goal, that number one priority so much faster. The biggest mistake most people make with their money management skills and why they don’t get to experience financial success more easily is that they spray their focus. They’re trying to do everything at the same time. They try to pay off debt, accumulate savings, save for a home, start investing in shares, boost their retirement fund all at once. And so you’re just drip feeding randomly here and there.

When you stop and actually get clear on what your number one priority should be right here right now, then you can put all your focus on that one thing, knowing that you are absolutely focusing on the thing that is most critical, most important for you right here right now, and that will propel you towards financial success, the fastest. And when that box has been ticked, you shift your focus onto the next thing you reassess and decide, okay, what should be next? And you move on to that.

Now, speaking of eliminating debt, if that is your number one focus right now, then I do have this other video right here, which you can watch next to help you ensure that the process that you’re using to clear your debt is the one that helps you eliminate that debt in the fastest, most efficient way possible. So be sure to watch that next.

Now you might already follow one or even all three of these golden rules. So let me know in the comments, which of these golden rules do you already follow? Which ones have you already tried? What’s your favorite? Or maybe which one are you going to try or possibly recommit to next?

Okay, as I promised at the start, I’m going to give you a little bit of an extra bonus before you go. 

And that is covering what your basic bank accounts should be, that you have both for your business and your personal finances. And this is actually a lesson straight out of part of the Magnetic Money program, because it’s really important that the practical infrastructure you have in place really supports your money management system. And that is what allows you to then put it all on autopilot and make sure that all the percentages are correct, that there’s always the right amount of money being saved and that everything’s being taken care of, with your number one priority at all times being the key focus. So having the bank accounts in place that allow you to then set up that entire system is really critical. So let’s go through what they should be.

Let’s focus on your business first, and you really need a minimum of two bank accounts for your business.

The two bank accounts that you should have in the name of your business, whether that’s your own name or the name of a company, or maybe something like a trust should be :

Number one, your business operating account. Now that account is the one that all your income will come into and that your business pays all its expenses out of,including your wages (because your wages are then your personal income,). Your business pays its bills, including the wages of its CEO, which is you. So that’s your business operating account. All income for the business comes into that and all expenses, including your personal pay comes out of that account.

And the second business bank account that you really must have is a separate account to park tax money in.

And again, you will use a percentage for this. And the percentage of your gross income that should be allocated and tucked away for tax will vary, depending on whether you’re running a company or not, and how much income you’v currently got rolling through your business. So refer to your accountant, refer to your last year’s, or the couple of years tax returns and make a decision of what percentage of your gross turnover – of the total income coming into your business – should you be putting aside to make sure that you can pay your tax bill. Because you know what? You’re in business to make profit. And usually profit is taxed in most countries. So you want to be aiming to pay tax. Really, you want to be aiming to pay as much tax as possible e ffectively, of course – because it means you have made lots of profit.

So by using a percentage, it means that the amount of tax money you’re putting aside in terms of dollars will always be appropriate for your level of income. Makes it nice and easy and it makes sure that you’re perfectly on track.

Okay, now let’s move on to your personal bank accounts.

So, I recommend that you have at least four personal bank accounts. The first one is your bills account. So the bills account is generally the one that all income or personal income is paid into. And remember, your personal income is not your business’s gross income. It is the income that you receive as wages or salary from your business plus any other household income. So all of it comes into the bills account. And from that bills account, you set up direct automatic debits – because the less you have to think about this, the better – for all your regular household bills. And I’m talking things like insurance, electricity, gas, all those personal expenses that are going to be ongoing.

And then the second bank account that I strongly recommend you have separately is a cash spending account with a spending card, an ATM card, an Eftpos card linked to it.

Now, in our household, we have one of these each – and that’s where all your discretionary money goes into – the money for your discretionary spending, your fun money, the things that you can choose to spend or choose not to spend on. And so each month or each payment cycle from that bills account, a certain amount gets deposited into your cash discretionary spending fun money account. And you get to spend that on whatever you choose. And of course, before you’ve done any of this, you’ve sat down and worked out your entire money management system and made some decisions around what those dollar amounts should be. But you need this infrastructure in place, remember?

So cash spending account means that that’s the money you get to spend on the fun stuff like going out for lunch, or maybe having a massage or whatever those things are. And when the money’s been spent, you’ve had your fun, and you’re not going to be tempted to dip into the bills account, because if you do that, you might have trouble paying the power bill when it comes in, right? So everything is nice and separate.

Now, the third type of account that I recommend you have is what I call the extras or the big splurges account. So you want at least one of these and it’s really short term savings, but for spending on big ticket items or on maybe annual items. So things like Christmas gifts or birthday gifts for the kids or things like your annual family holiday. So you want to have a separate bank account – at least one – to cover those things. And some people like to have several separate bank accounts. They might have a holiday money account and a Christmas and birthday presents account separately.

So, those extra items should be in a separate account because they’re big ticket things that happen seasonally. So you don’t want to mix that up with your everyday spending or your everyday household bills money, and find that again, you might accidentally run short.

And then the fourth type of account needs to be a savings account. Now, depending on where you’re at in life, that might be just a cash savings account, or it might be an investment account, or it might actually be your shares investment that you keep building on, but it’s savings. It’s long-term savings for either emergency money or for investing and growing your wealth. It’s not money that you’re planning to touch anytime soon. So it’s very different to those Extras accounts. They’re not really savings. They’re just you putting money aside all year long so that when Christmas comes, you can buy some gifts for the family.

THIS is wealth creation. So savings/wealth creation. You want to make sure you have at least one bank account where money can accumulate for that and doesn’t get mixed in and diluted by either cash fun money or household bills.

So with all of this, as I’ve already mentioned, the key thing is to have a system in place and to have made those decisions of how much money should flow through all of these accounts before you even get started. 

And this is what we do in the Magnetic Money program. 

But before most people can go there and set up their money management system, they actually need to start looking at creating that ecosystem and shifting the way they think about money and the way they feel about money so that they can then go on to shift the way they deal with their money.

All of that together is what allows you to unlock your six figure plus income and stop the old sabotage patterns – so that money is flowing to you freely, staying around and you actually know what to do with it. You can put it into your money management system – you can put it into your wealth creation plan – you can let it flow through those bank accounts with the appropriate percentages and give every dollar a job to do. And that is the fast track to success.

So I’ve created a free new Masterclass that I’d love to invite you to watch. It is called “The secret code to unlocking your six figure income”. And it’s available for you to watch right now, free of charge at the link in the comments below. So hop on that now, and I’d love to see you in that Masterclass.

The 3 biggest blocks to attracting a 6-figure business

The 3 biggest blocks to attracting a 6-figure business

Let’s talk about the three biggest blocks to you attracting and manifesting a six figure business, and for your business to actually be generating six figures plus on a consistent level.

So where are we going to start with this? Let’s talk about six figures. Let’s talk about why six figures is such a big deal, because this is important for you to recognise if you’re going to uncover those blocks and realise which one of them is the one you may need to deal with. 

First, because six figures is a symbolic threshold, right? It’s this threshold where you step across from having a business that may be considered a hobby, or not really for your livelihood or your household. 

And you step across this threshold and it symbolises freedom – financial freedom – and it symbolises success. Your business has made it at that point. Usually your business is employing other people and their livelihood partly depends on it as well. 

So it’s a real coming of age for your business when it crosses this six figure threshold, and emotionally and mentally, that is a really big deal.

Now, if you’ve come from previously being in a job as most of us have, and then you’ve moved into having your own business and being an entrepreneur, then the biggest issue with the six figure thing and why it suddenly feels different and hard, is because it’s not the same as when you’re earning six figures plus in a job. 

You might have come from a career where you earned multiple six figures and you’re really comfortable with that. And now suddenly, you’re in this business, and it feels really weird and hard and it feels like you have to ask people for way more money than you feel comfortable, just to allow you to make that level of income. 

So when you get moved into a business, you need to start recognising that it’s just not the same as when you’re in a job. It is different in your business. There are a few reasons for that. 

The key one is that YOU set your worth. YOU decide what your hourly rate is, YOU decide what your products are worth, YOU DECIDE.

You decide the pricing, you decide the structure, how long you work for, what kind of hours you work, what that looks like, and also you have to stand up there and claim it, you have to be visible, you have to actually stand up and claim your worth. 

Whereas in a job, you don’t so much have to do that. You’ll go to a job interview, you’ll usually accept the salary that’s offered – which is what most women do, they don’t generally negotiate very well – and then you wait for the pay rises to come through. 

It’s easy to just coast along and appreciate the pay rises as they come and let somebody else dictate your worth. 

But in your business, it is totally up to you. And this is where those three big blocks come from, the three biggest blocks, generally speaking, that are at the core of what’s getting in the way of women attracting that six figure income in their businesses.

So you can sum them up simply as this:

1. ‘I’m not good enough.’

‘I’m just not good enough at this yet’. Right? Or ‘I’m not good enough to claim this amount of money, to ask this amount of money’. 

That’s where the visibility blocks come in. If that’s a limiting belief, then often what happens is that the person who has that going for them – and maybe that’s you or what has been you at some stage – are often unwilling to show up, or they feel uncomfortable about showing up. Showing up as the expert, showing up as somebody who says ‘Work with me, I can help you with that and here’s what I charge for it’. It feels uncomfortable. So not feeling good enough is the number one.

2. ‘I don’t know enough.’

‘I don’t know enough and I can’t offer enough’. And that manifests itself usually in over delivering, in taking on one course after another, after another. Getting all these extra qualifications that you don’t really need because deep down inside, you still feel like you don’t really know enough or what you’re offering is not enough to warrant that level of income, to warrant charging what you’re wanting to charge and that level of energy exchange. So ‘It’s not enough’ is the second big block that causes women in business to not be able to cross that six figure threshold.

3. ‘I’m not worthy of it.’

This one is an oldie but a goodie. It’s a lack of worthiness, a lack of feeling worthy of it. It can come in different kinds of ways, but it all comes down to, ‘I’m not worthy of it’. There may be different phrases used but they essentially mean that. They essentially mean, ‘I don’t think I’m worthy of it’ and that tends to show up in your pricing – you struggling with your pricing, struggling to set your prices, struggling to raise your prices, and also struggling to ask for money, to actually ask for the energy exchange.

So they are the three biggest blocks to attracting a six figure income in your business that I see all of the time. 

So I invite you to sit down with that and have a look at which one really resonates for you, and then be willing to do some work around it because that’s the next step. You need to shift your self-image if you’re going to clear that block. 

If you’re going to start seeing yourself as good enough, worthy enough and knowing enough, that requires a shift in your self image. 

If you’re ready to take that next step, then I invite you to help yourself to my free training that will help you do exactly that.

I’ve linked it below so go grab that now and until I see you next, make sure you keep on embracing your unlimited potential.

Why making a 6 figure income was easy in your job but hard in your business

Why making a 6 figure income was easy in your job but hard in your business

Have you have a job in the past where you made an easy 6-figures, found it very easy and had no trouble accepting that level of income… but when it comes to your business there’s all these weird blocks going on and you just can’t seem to get there and you feel really weird about it?

What is going on with that? That’s what I’d like to talk to you about today, because it happens to a lot of women in business.

What it means is that if you’ve come from, maybe, a corporate career where you’ve effortlessly made over 6-figures, you step into business thinking it’ll just be the same, and then when the business doesn’t take off and you’re not earning that level of income, you think there’s something wrong with your business and you think there’s something wrong with you, because you’ve earned that amount of money in the past and so what’s the big deal?

Well, it is a big deal, and that’s what I want you to become very, very aware of. 

It’s a very big deal, and it’s a totally different thing making 6-figures and multiple 6-figures in your business versus earning 6-figures and multiple 6-figures in a career where somebody else is paying the wages.

It comes down to just a couple of things, so let’s talk about those.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

The first one is that, when you’re in a job, there’s somebody else deciding what that’s worth. There’s someone else who sets that number down as “this is the value of your contribution to the company,” and they decide. And we all know that women suck at negotiating pay rise and all those sorts of things and that’s why they also suck at setting price rises in their business, because there it’s TOTALLY up to you.

In a company where you’re the employee, your employer will set your wage and your salary and you will sit down for your annual review and you may get better at negotiating a pay raise, but largely most women will avoid it, and the reason why they avoid that and they feel uncomfortable about it, is the same reason why they struggle to earn that amount of money in their business, because no one has set that first number for them. 

No one sets that number, YOU have to set that number.

You have to decide what you’re worth. You have to decide what your service is worth and set your value, and YOU have to negotiate your own price rises and decide that your services are now worth even more.

So that’s a really big deal, and it comes down to all sorts of things around worthiness, and feeling deserving, and all those very deep-seated unconscious belief systems. That’s why it’s not the same thing, and that’s why it feels so much harder.

Another thing that is a huge block for women in business is that when they were in the corporate career, they were being paid by the corporation, the big company, some faceless organization, or at least a big enough business that could afford to pay them a 6-figure plus salary. So it’s like, “Well, they’re making great money. They can afford to pay me that. I’m good with accepting that money.” 

But when you go into business, particularly one that’s service based and where you’re helping people, and especially if you’re helping people with things like personal development or healing or anything like that, then you’re coming from a place of true service and wanting to help and lift others up, and so then needing to charge those people what you know you’re worth and what you know your service is worth brings that whole other element of, “Oh… but I’m charging it to the little person. I’m charging it to the single mum, or I’m charging it to the divorcee, or I’m charging it to this woman who’s just told me that things are a little bit tight right now,” and you have to do that over and over and over again. 

That can become a big money block where you worry about the impact that paying for your service has on somebody else’s life. It’s not just some big company or corporation that you don’t have any emotional attachment to, it is a real person who you care about and in some instances they’re telling you that they’re experiencing some level of discomfort or stress or maybe even hardship and your service is part of how they hope to get past that and out of it, but you have to charge them for it.

So 6-figures in a job versus 6-figures in a business, especially a service-based business, especially for a woman, are not at all the same thing, and you really need to make sure you do the deeper work very, very committedly and with tenacity so that you can totally own that number. That number that you’re charging to each and every customer and that number of what it is you’re bringing home and into your life through this business that you’ve created.

I think another time it might be really cool to talk about the deeper stuff within that, but for now let’s leave it at that.

I encourage you to go and do some journaling on this. This is a really good one to write some reflections about.

Of course, don’t forget to grab my free training, to which the link is in the description to help you as well.

Until I see you next, keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.

6-figure Income Secrets

6-figure Income Secrets

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful in Business. This the place where we apply Law of Attraction in magical and practical ways so you can have more money in the bank and get more done – with ease!

Let’s talk about secrets… some 6-figure secrets!

Now, they’re not really secrets but what they are is 5 SHIFTS in perception that you need to make and 5 things you really need to keep in mind to help you move out of that mindset and point of view that’s keeping you stuck in the 5-figure realm and help you cross that 6-figure threshold and move into that area of business.

So let’s get into, shall we?

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Number one: Your business is a real thing and when you start moving into 6-figures, you have to give it that respect. 

You have to treat it as a real, serious entity. You have to give it the time, the space, the support, the tools, and you have to feed, nourish, and nurture your business and give it everything it needs to thrive and treat it like a real serious separate entity to you. 

It’s no longer about you – it’s becoming its own thing. 

That’s a big mindset and shift that is necessary for you to move into the 6-figure realm.

Now, number two: When you start operating in the 6-figure territory as opposed to the 5-figure territory of income, it is a different version of you. 

So you need to start becoming that version of you who can operate that serious business, that’s a real thing I just talked about in the first point. 

You really need to look at who you need to become so that you can do the things you do to have the outcome you want to have, because it takes a different version of you. Maybe a more committed version of you. Maybe a more structured version of you. Maybe a more organized version of you. Maybe a version of you who follows through on things. Maybe a version of you who takes better care of herself so that she can think clearly. Maybe a version of you who’s willing to ask for help and be open-minded and listen to other people.

Really think about that, because it does take a different version of you, and I won’t get into all the reasons why right here on this blog, but it does take a different version of you and there’s quite a few reasons why, because 6-figures is a different ball game to 5-figures.

Now, secret number three is when you start moving into the 6-figure territory you need to really practice being the unemotional observer. 

You need to be strategic. You need to re-evaluate what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what will you be doing next, and why are some things working while others are not. Make it a thing that is unemotional and has nothing to do with you, your value or your self-worth, because your business, remember, is a separate energetic entity to you. 

It is its own thing and you’re observing it and just fine-tuning and tweaking it.

It might help to think of it like a machine you’ve built that you know works and you know you can keep improving. How can you keep getting a better performance out of it? That’s what you’re looking at. How can it run more efficiently? How can it perform with bigger outcome? What else does it need? What parts might need replacing and upgrading that will help it perform better?

So you’ve got this machine you’ve built and then you’re just tweaking the parts of it, playing with all of that, and improving the result you get for the input you’re putting in. 

That’s it. It’s just a game.

So be unemotional and be really strategic.. (and make sure you keep notes on that stuff, please… just saying…)

Okay, number four is… if you haven’t figured it out yet, when you move into 6-figures, or for you to be able to move into 6-figures, you really need to make your mindset a number one priority. 

This means you have to give it the time, you have to dedicate the systems and the tools you’re going to use, you have to get really clear on, “What are my mindset practices? What are my mindset times? What commitment am I making to that?”

This is priority number one, because without your mindset being in the right space, nothing else is going to work.

So make your mindset your number one priority.

For example, for me personally, it takes a lot for me to skip my morning meditation practice. That is my number one mindset practice. It puts me in the right state of mind for the day. It helps me connect to my higher self. It makes me really calm and unemotional in my approach to my business. Without that daily mindset practice of sitting down to meditate for 20 minutes in the morning, and usually 20 minutes in the afternoon, I’m a different person. I am not the CEO of my 6-figure business that I need to be.

So making sure that your mindset is your number one priority, I’ve put down as number four – but it should really be number one to be quite honest.

And then the fifth secret to 6-figures is that it does take a team. 

You really need to have a good team around you. It doesn’t mean you need a million people, but you need a carefully selected team whom you can rely on and who you know are going to get you there.

Now, that means you have to be willing to ask for help, and it also means you have to be willing to listen. Choose carefully who you’re going to listen to. Make sure that they are already doing what you’re asking them to help you do, and then DO listen to them. 

Be open minded and open to experiment. If you don’t quite agree, learn to, again, be that unemotional observer running that experiment and measuring the results and you can say, “Okay look, I’m not convinced, but let’s try it your way for a month or a quarter and let’s see how it goes.” 

You really do have to be willing to listen, to try different things, and to experiment a little bit. 

You’re not always going to be getting instant results and… really this should be secret number six… that the results aren’t instant, that it is an incremental process, and you have to be okay with that. There’s not a magic thing you do. 

So you need that team who are going to help you get there, and you need to decide who the right people are. Who do you need from a business strategy perspective? Who do you need on your team and in your corner from a mindset perspective? Do you need anybody else? Do you need a team that helps you with your physical health, because you are somebody who needs that support so that you can function at your best?

So look at all those areas. Decide what the top priorities are. You’re better off having a smaller, higher quality team than a big team of people who do bits and pieces but who you can’t really rely on or who aren’t really fit for the job. 

Money is a factor that comes into this support team, so decide what is the number one thing you need help with, and if you can only invest in one thing then invest in that

Then get that up to a certain level so that maybe you can cut back a little bit on what you’re investing there and go into more of a maintenance kind of situation… and then you can bring in the next person to help you with the next thing on the list of priorities.

But it does take a team, you can’t do it on your own. 

No woman is an island.

So, there you have the five secrets that are the shifts in perspective that will help you get into the 6-figure territory.

And I’m talking not just 6-figures like, “Let’s make 110,000,” let’s make multiple 6-figures. 

6-figures is a big beautiful span and there’s a lot of playground in there waiting for you.

So let’s recap:

  • Number one, your business is a real thing. It is a separate energetic entity to you and you have to give it that respect.

 

  • Number two, you have to be a different version of you. Who do you need to be and what can you start doing to become that now?

 

  • Number three, become the unemotional observer. Be strategic and treat it all as an experiment where you are constantly adjusting and tweaking this beautiful machine that you’ve built.

 

  • Number four, make your mindset a top priority. Do what it takes. Surround yourself with the people that will help you get there, which is actually also number five. Look at who you need on your team. Now, mindset, there are certain people who help you stay in the right frame of mind, hang out with them more and hang out less with the people who don’t.

 

  • Number five, look at what is the team you need on a bigger level for your business, your health, your mindset, and make sure you’ve got those people in place.
