But you might feel your dream fleeting because you're struggling to get your business in the green. Friend, I want to share with you 5 steps you can take TODAY to start making more money in your faith focused business.
God is our ultimate light in our journey. He has great plans for us. Before we talk about the steps, I want you to evaluate how much you're bringing God into your business.
- Are you connecting with God daily through prayer?
- Do you know WHY your business is important to His kingdom?
- Are you exuding CONFIDENCE and STANDING firm in your offerings?
- Are you providing value?
You have to bring Him in every day. You must know WHY the gifts He gave you are important.
“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.” [Proverbs 3:9-10]
I want to give you some steps today to help your God centered business GROW.
Step One: Discipline
My sweet friend, stop treating your business like a hobby. If you want to have an impactful business start running it like it's an impactful business. Track what you're doing and how much time you're spending. Focusing on distractions is usually a way we avoid fear and rejection.
Are you spending your working hours cleaning your office and filing papers?
Are you making calls and talking to people?
Track the time you're spending and prioritize money making activities. List out the activities you know you need to be doing to bring in cash. Block out time daily for your business.
Work smarter, not harder!
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” [2 Timothy 1:7]
Step Two: Love Your Customers
If you want quick growth, focus on your current customers. It's WAY harder to go out and get new customers, but if you show some love to your existing tribe they'll love you right back!
You can show them love by giving them incentives for ordering. Solve their problems by recommending new products they haven't tried.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.” [Romans 12:9]
Also, don't be afraid to ask for referrals. These people love you and support you. Ask for referrals, so you can love on their friends and take care of them. You can also give them a sweet lil referral bonus for sharing your name!
If one of your customers has had an amazing experience ask if you can feature them! Focus on how your product/services are helping them and share it with the world!
Step Three: Value Add
Providing value add to your product and services offering is a GREAT way to grow your business quickly. If you have a service based business, add products. If you sell products, add services.
This could be upselling some of your favorite tools, books, planners, swag, etc. If you sell products give you customers a one to one high touch experience. Give them direct access to you for the first month if they're starting a new health product or beauty line. Set up times for you to talk for 30mins.
SHOW THEM YOU CARE! Guide your customers on how they gain the most benefit from your product or service.
Step Four: Leverage Your Strengths
Utilize all of your talents, skills, and strengths.
If you're a life coach but social media is your jam, upsell a training on social media.
If you're a Mom who is now a new health coach and you've got some tricks for fitting in workouts, SHARE!
If you own a boutique and teaching is your spiritual gift, host a DIY event.
Nothing is off limits. When I launched my business a year ago I only wanted to be a life coach. I loved mentoring women through mindset trouble. I quickly realized that my technical strengths were NEEDED! So I decided to create services where I could use all of my strengths.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.” [1 Peter 4:10]
Step Five: Joint Ventures
We are all different and chances are you have a business bestie or circle of supportive women. Help each other! Share each others’ products/services authentically. If you truly love something your friend is doing, share it! Your testimonial and public kudos will go WAY farther than her sharing her own stuff.
Support each other through social media. Like and comment on her posts. We all know that the more engagement a post gets the longer it stays at the top of our news feed. Leverage this and help each other!
If you both offer different products or services, create a partnership where you can create awesome packages and give your customers a really amazing experience!
Sweet Friend, God has so much in store for you. If you allow God into your business, He'll guide you. Prayer and action must go hand in hand.
