The results are in, and you’re a:

DREAMER

You may have started making money but you are still trying to find your way and revenue is inconsistent.

You are not alone. Building a business can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be…

 

“You don’t have to know where you’re going to get there, but you do have to take action for movement to happen!”

— Linette Montae

So what is my next step?

You are motivated but need support with narrowing down your One Big Idea, knowing what to do next, and staying ultra-focused on the plan.

The CEO Dreamer faces three core hurdles:

Challenge #1: Trying to build on passion, experience, and skills. Focus on laying a foundation strong enough to support your business structure. Passion Won’t Pay The Bills!

Challenge #2: Trying to build with limited money. Focus on securing reliable money sources for ongoing business development. Sometimes a J-O-B is the funding source!

Challenge #3: Trying to do too much. Focus on mastering the art of market acceptance and going after a one niche opportunity. Translation: Stop chasing bright shiny objects!

GET FOCUSED

To develop a valuable product/service, deliver that product/service, secure customers, and ensure the consistent delivery of your product/service.

#1 Get clear on what and how your customers buy.

At this stage, you perform every task or have a few team members you supervise directly, and you do not have systems or processes to support your business activities. Because this stage is highly volatile, your ability to be a flexible and nimble decision-maker is critical, or your business may die before it has a chance to bloom.

Release all attachments to a particular product or service and focus on market demand. Example: your restaurant specializes in dinner cuisines, but your traffic is higher at lunch time. The agile CEO Dreamer will pivot resources to serve a larger lunch time crowd.

#2 Create a realistic written business plan.

The CEO Dreamer’s journey often feels like one step ahead and two steps back but if you think your idea is feasible, you owe it to yourself to document your success roadmap. And then Follow It!

Your business plan is designed to be a living document to objectively evaluate ideas, identify key target markets, set measurable milestones, analyze strategies, and explore new opportunities.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  • How do I determine the correct business structure?

  • Does my business idea fill a gap in the market?
  • Will my products be accepted in the market?
  • Can I reach potential customers, deliver my products, and become a profitable business?
  • Do I have enough financial resources to run the business through this phase?
  • Is my plan profitable?
Expound on this action step and really make it clear to them how to put into action. Because in that action, they will see results from the content you are serving and that makes all of the difference.

TAKE THE NEXT STEP

Your biggest challenge is CLARITY.

Your biggest need is a PLAN.

At a CEO Dreamer, you must find customers and create the right products/services, or you may run out of capital and be forced to close the business.

Spending time clarifying your purpose and the vision for your business may help make decisions easier & keep you focused.

At this point, if you feel overwhelmed, stop here and take action on the “Get Focused” and “Food for Thought” tips.

3 steps we recommend for the CEO Dreamer:

Set a Schedule

One way to increase your business success rate is to set a schedule… and stick with it. Review your calendar and decide how many hours a week you will commit to working ON your business. Even a couple of hours focusing on money-generating activities will make a big difference in your revenue over time. Stop hiding!

Know Your Expenses

Most businesses require an investment of time, energy, and money before you see any return. You researched the direct expenses involved in your chosen business but likely were not aware of the need for a technology budget. The costs for an autoresponder, CRM, project management, financial management, cloud storage, password keeper, image designer, etc. – can quickly add up and derail your budget. 

Set Goals

Keeping your goals in mind can help you stay on track and motivated on challenging days. If revenue is needed, start with a financial goal. Also, what’s motivating you to put in all these extra hours? Whatever it is, write it down and put it someplace you will see it regularly.
