Ever been so overloaded by free information you don’t know where to start? You might be suffering from paralysis analysis!
You, my friend, are suffering from paralysis analysis!
Let’s say you decided it’s time to start up that business you’ve been thinking about for years. You start reading books, listening to podcasts, and following famous entrepreneurs on social media. In the process, you’ve learned so many different strategies you’re suddenly terrified of starting with the wrong one!
For many, they do absolutely nothing. That business they’ve dreamed of starting never gets anywhere because they just keep reading free content and never implementing what they learned.
If this sounds like you, stick around to learn 3 different ways to go from just learning, to actually implementing. This will allow you to start taking actions towards your goals and making progress you can be proud of. So long paralysis by analysis!
Join a Mastermind
Who is responsible for keeping you accountable?
Truth is, it’s you. However more times than not, this is difficult to do all on your own if you have yet to develop this skillset.
One way to get support while you develop your accountability muscles is to ask other people to help hold you accountable. This is why support groups can be so valuable.
Mastermind groups are kinda like support groups for personal and business development.
They range in price from free, to thousands of dollars and the price you pay is reflective of the level the members are all building their personal development at. You want to be in a group of people who are either at your level or slightly above it.
As an example, six-figure entrepreneurs will invest more to be in a group with fellow six and seven-figure entrepreneurs they can learn from.
Masterminds are not group coaching. They specifically allow members to pose challenges, brainstorm solutions, and keep each other accountable for taking action on what they discussed at their meeting.
Due to the community nature of the meetings, it makes it much harder to allow paralysis by analysis to take over.
Interested in checking out a mastermind designed specifically for aspiring and new entrepreneurs? Check out my Initiation Entrepreneur Mastermind. We meet twice a month and would love to have you join us.
Find a Group Coaching Program
Looking for a step-by-step game plan on how to launch your new business? Group coaching may be the perfect solution for you.
Yes, there’s a ton of information in books, podcasts, and on the internet on how to start a new business. Where a group coaching program fills in the gaps is by not only providing a proven framework of step by step instructions on how to do so, but providing support and accountability towards you making it happen.
Group coaching is very different than a mastermind in that you get mentorship via the coach leading the program. This is usually delivered through group coaching calls in which the coach answers questions the students may have while attempting to implement the strategies covered in the program.
If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur and group coaching sounds like it may be a good fit for you to help cure your paralysis by analysis, I invite you to schedule a free strategy session with me. In the session, we can discuss if one of my own programs be a good fit for you.
Enlist a Mentor
Want to know the fastest way to accomplish something you’ve never done before?
Enlist a mentor.
Mentors come by way of coaches, consultants, gurus, craftsmen, and more. The key is to find someone who’s already done exactly what it is that you desire to accomplish.
When I had first started my coaching and speaking business, I had just spent over 15 years working in electronics distribution and retail. I was a smart and savvy businesswoman, but I had zero ideas of how the personal development industry worked. So one of my first, and best, investments were in a coach who herself was a coach, author, and speaker.
Since my mentors showed me strategies that had already been proven for their respective industries, I was able to land my first clients within weeks of starting, grow my social media following and email lists to over 40k followers, and landed my first TEDx talk within 5 months of starting to speak publicly.
The best part is private mentorship and coaching is often catered to the specific needs of the clients. So it’s customized to you and your specific goals.
I work as a mentor for new entrepreneurs looking to scale effectively so they can go full time and leave their day jobs. If this sounds like you, I invite you to schedule a free strategy session with me. In the session, we can discuss if one of my 1:1 coaching program be a good fit for you.
So there you have it! By exploring and participating in these three support opportunities, you’ll feel inspired by your peers who have already done it, as well as be held accountable to the goals you set for yourself.
Additional support can really help bridge that gap between learning, to actually implement. It is necessary to take your idea from just an idea to an entirely new lifestyle full of the freedom and balance you’re looking for through entrepreneurship.
Would you like to explore if masterminds, group coaching, or private mentorship/coaching is right for you? I invite you to schedule a free strategy session with me to find out.
On the call, we’ll get you clarity on where you are today regarding your business idea, areas for improvement, and market opportunities. We’ll then set you up with realistic goals, as well as uncover the #1 obstacle holding you back. From there we can create a strategy to help make your dream of entrepreneurship a reality.
