Dear Elizabeth,

I am thrilled to let you know because you are a SavvyBIZ newsletter subscriber and/or a SavvyBIZ Place member you will be getting one action step a day from me in December to make sure you start 2015 off with confidence in your business and yourself!

Every day in December (I will take Christmas off!) I will send you an action step you can easily do that day. If you do each step every day you will be so on top of your office, your time management, your finances, your mindset,  and your business you will start 2015 with amazing confidence!

I suggest you make an e-mail folder called "Success 2015" where you can keep all of the e-mails and can access them easily in the future.  
 
Action Step #28:  Specialize and be Remembered
magic-wand
 
I've had the honor of speaking many times at the National Association of Professional Organizers national conventions. At one of my sessions I had the audience stand and asked those to sit who did not feel they were an expert at what they did. Almost 75% of the room sat down.

This was heartbreaking.

I then told those who sat down to stand up again and I waved my magic wand over all of them and declared to them "You are an expert...right now!"

 

Years ago I was asking my business coach, Mark LeBlanc, about attending another certification program.   He paused for a long time and then said "Elizabeth, you know enough right now."

Words that changed my life then and they keep changing my life.

I have nothing against furthering your education, getting certified, etc. but if you are waiting for that next popular thing (whatever it is) to learn and then you will go out and get clients...you are fooling yourself. I encourage you to go to conferences on how to market and grow your business but as far as learning more on how to do what you to...you know enough.

You are an expert now. If I were with you I'd wave my magic wand over you!

Stand up, put your shoulders back and declare "I am THE expert in  ___________________".  If the back of your business card claims 10 fields you specialize in pick the ONE you love the most as your field of expertise and get rid of the other 9 on the back of your card.

Look at your website, your marketing materials, etc.  Is your expertise clear?  If not, make some changes.

Now is not the time to be all things for all people.  Now is the time to be the expert in what you love the most for the sliver of population that needs exactly what you offer. This is what it takes to be remembered.

Start off 2015 as THE expert.

  

What are you waiting for, Elizabeth?

I work with women who want to get past what is stopping them and help them have the confidence to be extraordinary in their life and business. Is now your time?

I am SO glad to be working with you, Elizabeth. If it was not for you, I would have surely closed my business at the end of this year. Now - I have workshops, classes, speaking gigs and possibilities already in
the new year. 

Thank you so much for what you do...even if you did force me out of my sweats to go to an expo!
