10 Steps To A More Confident YOU!

10 Steps To A More Confident YOU!

10 steps to boost your self confidence

 

 

·         1. Smile.... Laugh

Sounds simple right? That's because it is. Look I'm not trying to say that a smile is going to chase away all your confidence issues but it will help. Not only does smiling & laughing make you feel more confident it also makes us look more confident.

 

·         2.  Always be ready to face the world...

 

Just because sometimes you don't feel the best doesn't mean that you should give up ladies. It is hard to feel confident when you aren't properly groomed or dressed! Does this seem a little shallow to you? It absolutely not, try it. dressing nice & looking after yourself will boost your self confidence as well as project confidence.

 

·         3. Set Goals...

 

It is amazing more people don't properly set goals. It is vital that you have your goals written down & that they are specific, and timely. Working towards a goal will help you build confidence. If you break your longer term goals into smaller more manageable goals, they will become more obtainable & once you start hitter your goals, your confidence will start to build.

 

·         4. Build momentum with small positive changes...

 

This goes hand in hand with my last tip. Small goals will help you build momentum in your business & life, but it will also help with positive habit changes. You don't have to make drastic changes, any small positive change will help you to feel more confident.

 

·         5. Focus on solutions....

One of the worst things for your self confidence is focusing on your problems. Obviously it is impossible to ignore all of your problems & I am not suggesting you should, but a more effective use of your time would be to focus on how you can solve those problems. This will not only help your confidence it will also make you address some of your problems.

 

·         6. Exercise....

 

This one of the most effective ways I know of that will build your confidence. It works on a number of different levels. Exercising will help you feel better, look better and relax. It will give you a sense of accomplishment each time you complete a tough exercise. It is the perfect activity to build your confidence.

 

·         7. Keep a success log....

 

Keeping a success log may seem a little bit corny to some people but I always coach the ladies in my program to celebrate their wins, no matter how small they may seem, you do not realize how quick they will become the big wins. Anytime you reach a goal or accomplish something of importance keep track of it. That way when things don't seem to be going your way you can check your success log to boost yourself & remember howfar you've come.

 

·         8. Be grateful...

 

A positive mindset is one of the best ways to ensure confidence. It is very hard to be confident if all you do is beat yourself up. Take some time each day to think about the things that you are grateful for. Trust me the list will become longer than you think. Remembering the positives in your life will help you stay confident.

 

·         9. Listen to "uplifting" music.....

 

Sound a little silly to you, this always lifts my mood (dancing around my living room with a hair brush in hand!) OK so you don't have to go that far, but if you are feeling nervous or don't feel confident, try listening to some music that will 'pump you up a little'. Listen to whatever music works for you. If blasting gangster rap or death mental on the way to your job interview gets you ready, then do it!

 

·         10. Get better (even if it's a slow process)

 

Not feeling confident? Quite literally - get better. If you don't feel confident in your job, business or any aspect of your life - improve it. Just taking a course & working towards improvement will drastically improve your self confidence.

 

 

These steps are simple to follow and will boost your confidence but as with anything in life you will need to be consistent & persistent. This isn't a magic pill to suddenly make your life a million times better, but if you keep working on these steps then they will dramatically improve your self confidence.

7 steps to growing your business...

Good Evening Mumpreneurs, I hope you are all having a great week.

I wanted to share some tips with you this evening that will help you become a top recruiter in your network marketing business or grow your serviced based business exponentially.

So let's just dive straight in...

1. Decision

Make the decision today to invest time into your business, so many people start their own business whether it be in network marketing or in coaching they are never able to commit to investing time. Most of us start are own business around a full or part time job & this makes it so hard to stay focused on our business as we are living the 9-5 mindset.  I know because I have been there, you are so used to having a boss give you a list of jobs to do that when it comes to working for yourself, everything is a muddle. Where do you even start? How much time do you invest? Which jobs take priority?

Stop for a minute, stop over thinking things and take some time to make that decision to commit yourself to your business, whatever it takes & however long it takes..... Remember ladies the only people who fail are those that give up trying! Ok so you've made your decision, now you need to decide how much time you can devote to your business every day, it maybe 1 hour or it could be 3, whatever it is make the decision and stick to it. Then once you know how long you can commit you can put a plan in place for tasks that need to be completed each day.

2. Mindset -

Some people may laugh, some people may not believe & some people work on this daily and it's the latter that are the successful bunch. As I have said previously if you are anything like I was you are programmed into the 9-5 lifestyle, work hard for little money, even less recognition and practically no time with your family. I didn't know how to believe I was made for something better, I had the dreams but I never used to believe I could achieve them until I started working on my mindset. The only way to remove those negative thoughts is to replace them with positive ones and the only way you can do that is to work on your mindset. If you work on this you can totally change yourself and your business. Have that belief that you can do it and that you can attract prospects & clients easily. If you work on your mindset you will begin to see that what you have to offer your prospects/clients is a gift, a gift that can help them change their world. Listen to as many positive mindset trainings as you possibly can.

3. Make New Friends -

All the top mumpreneurs do this in order to succeed in their chosen field. Make the effort to make friends & build relationships. Take the time to get to know people and what they want out of life. Add value to them and gain trust. Once someone trusts you then and only then are you able to show them your gift that could change their lives, because only then will you know what they want out of life, what your gift could help them with. I'm not just talking Facebook but out an about, start conversations and listen to what the other person is saying.

4. Positive Daily Habits -

This is a biggie ladies!! Ever read 'The Compound Effect' by Darren Hardy? If you haven't this is an absolute must read. He talks about this on another level, he will get you thinking about this in great detail. I will just say that if you want to be successful with anything with your life whether it be weight loss, saving money or create a successful business you must be able to develop positive daily habits, it practically the only difference between the being successful or not. Some examples you could have of daily habits are...

Talk to 1 person per day about your business/opportunity/products.

Add at least 2 people to your friends list

Watch at least 15 minutes of mindset training

Review what has or hasn't worked on that day

These are all little daily habits that may not look much to start but I promise if you done just the above for the next 3 months every single day, you will come on leaps and bounds in your business. This is the compound effect. Again please read the above mentioned book, it's a game changer.

5. Always be prepared -

6-7 figure earners have this down to a 't', always be prepared with samples of your product so you can give to people, always know your story (your business journey) know the story of the person that helped you get started & know it inside out. Knowing your story will help you feel in control and more confident when speaking to people, it will also show people how committed you are to your business.

6. Enthusiasm

You should always be enthusiastic about your business & it's products, if you don't have any love for your business or products why are you doing this? You may as well go back to your 9-5 (harsh maybe!). People are bored, they are naturally drawn to those with enthusiastic personalities. When I'm saying this, don't be thinking you need to be bouncing all over the place shouting from the roof tops how happy you are. But be positive, show the caring side of you, the side that wants people to grow, share love & self-develop. In the beginning your enthusiasm may come and go but if you make it a daily positive habit it will just be something you are, become part of you.

7. Think Bigger -

Think huge goals & dreams. Create a dream board and fill it with things that at the moment you may not think that you can achieve, and that scare you. Make sure this dream/goal bored is somewhere you can see it daily. If you want to recruit people into your business, pick a big number say 20 in a month and go for it, or if you wish to enrol more clients, don't just settle for 2, dream big. Have a bigger game plan, you can do this!!! You can achieve those amazing goals. What the mind believes the body will achieve. You are the only person holding you back from achieving everything you want out of life.

 

Until next time I hope you all have an amazing time, & are taking those steps needed to grow your business, as a mum I know that taking daily steps can sometimes be difficult with little ones constantly wanting no sorry demanding your attention, don't put too much pressure on yourself, this is your journey as long as you doing small actions daily this will soon create momentum.

Stay focused & stay strong.

To your success,

Sarah

      Hello Beautiful Ladies,  Have you ever hit a point in your life where you think there must be more? More than just a 9-5 that doesn't fill you with passion, more than only seeing you children for 2-3 hours a day and missing school events? I've spent many waking moments thinking about this!  I had to go back to work when my son was just 7 months old. I remember the night before I was due to start back like it was yesterday, I sat on his bedroom floor and sobbed my heart out. The feeling of knowing I had to leave him with people he hardly knew was excruciating, a little dramatic to some maybe but I have no other words to describe it.  None the less I had to go back to pay for our mortgage, I knew no other way, quickly I got back into a rut with working and just drifting through life. But something had changed, I had changed, my wants had changed. I knew that I wanted to follow my dreams, I wanted to be a role model to my growing boy that you can achieve anything with persistence, hard work & self belief, I also wanted to be able to earn an income doing what I loved from home, so I would never miss a sports day, never miss a concert and never have  to ask the boss for a day of because he was poorly. My dream has always been to be able to help and inspire others, to support others in building their self confidence and going after their dreams, I wasn't going to be able to do that in my 9-5. I made the most of my job and went on every course I could and coached members of my team whenever possible.  During this time a good friend of mine asked me to look at a network marketing opportunity, I knew nothing about network marketing or about this company. I trialled some of their products and I loved them, I joined the company very quickly, still not knowing much about network marketing. I found it easy to make money through the products as once people tried them they could see the quality too. For some reason at this time, I didn't catch or understand the potential of this business. Even though the company is amazing it just obviously wasn't the right time for me.  I knew had to work from home so I hired a six figure business coach to show me the way, theytaught me how to find who I was passionate about helping, to me it would always be mums like myself who didn't want to miss out on their children growing up, but who wanted to own a successful business, I wanted to show mums that they can have it all, and so Business & Babies was born. I continued to work with my coach who taught my how to set up my website, how to put in place systems & structure to run an online business.  I took me hiring a six figure mentor to realise I was already part of an amazing company that had allowed me to set up my business with very little money & lots of support, I had just never seen the potential. Network marketing gives people a vehicle to be able to achieve their goals, dreams and more beyond their expectations. I realised that even though a lot of mums wanted to work from home and create luxury incomes, they didn't want to start a business on their own & from scratch, Network marketing gives you the ability to just concentrate on building a global business. The company I am with and very passionate about has a GOLD Investors In People, which is a government award and recognises them for the amazing training they offer their business owners.    I love being part of a team but I have the ability to run my own business & coach the lovely ladies who have decided to partner with me. I am able to coach & mentor these ladies on how to build a business both offline and online so they can really have that 'laptop lifestyle' (If they work for it)  I could have saved myself a lot of time and money if I had seen the opportunity for what it was 'amazing' but they say everything happens for a reason, and back then wasn't the right time for me. What I have learnt since taking the longer road will serve me for many years to come, as I can know pass this knowledge on to any new mum that wants to join me.  I decided to tell my story here on my blog so that you can see that success doesn't come easy and it doesn't come straight away, there are many ups & downs & twists & turns but that is what teaches you the valuable lessons in life  You will be successful if you can;  1. Connect with your 'why' - connecting with this will give you determination you didn't even know you had & it will keep you going through the hard times. ( I'll be writing more on this subject in the coming weeks)  2. If your going to join a network marketing company to build your dream lifestyle - remember to find an ethical, strong and financially stable company.  3. Find a coach & mentor within that company you connect with, someone who can mentor you to build a business online as well as offline.  4. To be successful in any business you need to be persistent, consistent & never give up.  You too can find success from a home based business & live a 'laptop lifestyle'  So are you ready to connect with you 'why' and start fulfilling your potential?

Hello & Welcome to Business & Babies

Hello & Welcome to Business & Babies

It's so exciting to be sitting here late at night, 33 weeks pregnant, finally writing my first post! It's taken a while to get here for a number of reasons, one being I spent way too much time worrying about being perfect (but more on that in a future post).

Ok so this hub is going to be full of business building tips for aspiring mumpreneurs and seasoned mumpreneurs alike. I will be posting as often as I can and amongst the business building tips, there will probably be a few mummy related ones to as I am just as passionate about being a mum as I am about building a thriving business.

Now for those who know me & have read my story will know that I am a Business Coach with a huge passion for helping mums, I am part of a network marketing company which I absolutely love and it is what has given me the ability to set up Business & Babies, but my passion goes beyond those who just want to be part of network marketing & I love helping mums start any business online so they too can follow their passion.

Business & Babies mission is to show mums that they can stay at home, raise babies whilst creating a business around their passion.

I'm going to leave you on that note but be sure to stay in touch as my next few posts will be showing you how you can take virtually any business online with very little investment or tech knowledge.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Sarah xoxo
