I wanted to take a minute to tell you a little bit about what is happening behind the scenes in Six Figure Society because it really illustrates the power of community and having a quality support network.
Some of the ladies have been reaching their goal of 10k months in as little as 4 weeks - which is super crazy and I am so honored to be a part of their journey! Like we all do business together - they hire me as their coach but they also all work together.
Entrepreneurship can be lonely, especially in a COVID world where we have lost the vast majority of our in person support mechanisms. It is hard not to have people to talk to about your big goals, the strategies you will use to achieve them and all the little nuances that go into being an entrepreneur. Most women I talk to don't even have a partner who truly gets it -- even if they are supportive of you, if they aren't doing the same thing it can be hard to have in depth conversations. I will never say your support network can make or break you but having a support group to hold you accountable to meeting your goals and provide support and encouragement is priceless. What would it mean to you to know that you have a support system that is cheering you on from start to finish - who actually want you to be successful and will go out of their way to support you in meeting your goals.
I got to watch that scenario play out within Six Figure Society, recently. We all regularly talk about our goals, steps we are taking to make our goals and how close we are to achieving them. One of the ladies was about $300 short of her $10k goal on the last day of the month. She does business with someone else in the group, who told her to go ahead and bill her the $300 because they would surely find something else for her to do to account for that amount. So she billed her the $300 and she met her $10k month goal!! Was it cheating?! No, not in my opinion. She put her goal out into the universe, she worked to get super close to it and then her relationship helped to push her over the edge to make that goal. What an amazing confidence boost for her. Now that she has done it once, she knows she can do it over and over again.
You are the result of the five people you surround yourself with. Make sure that those people you are surrounded with are the right people. You want those five people to be the ones who celebrate you when you are successful, push you to be your best, encourage you and challenge you. Avoid including people who pull you down or consciously (or subconsciously) by giving you messaging that keeps you "safe." You shouldn't have to ask yourself if you network is supporting you, you should know it.
Finally, find people to support you in your weakness but also challenge you in your goals. Your network needs to help you to see what your blind spots are. Look for people who ask you how they can support you (and you should do the same for them!). Also, you don't just want people in your circle to just say your did you best! You want your support network to challenge you to do more because they know you can. Your support network should never let you short change yourself or come up with excuses.
