One of the most common questions I receive from wellness professionals is How to Find, Keep and Consistently Generate New Clients. Is this on your mind?
It’s normally a priority for most wellness professionals who are on their way to success. Not only do you want to be able to help more people with your important message, but you also want to be able to pay the bills so that you can live freely and authentically without financial anxiety. You want to be able to better serve your purpose.
You know that you’ll be a better coach, counselor, soul-based service provider and/or leader if you are aligned in your purpose. This is where you will serve others the best you can. But worry and anxiety sure takes you away from your focus of creating and shining, doesn’t it? Think of how much more you could do and share if you weren’t dealing with all of that extra baggage.
Let me tell you a little story about a gal named Suzy who was a holistic nutrition counselor. Suzy loved her new career. She was excited to help clients and carved a new path for herself. Some great success come her way, including being asked to be part of an integrative healthcare clinic, partnerships with some major companies and interviews on local TV.
But 12 months into her new business she practically had a nervous breakdown because no matter what she did, it seemed like she was always chasing clients. And to her, this feeling in her gut was awful. No matter how many probiotics and digestive enzymes she took, the nagging gut feeling wasn’t going anywhere!
She wanted to be at peace and know that things would work out. She began to feel a little inauthentic because she wasn’t living a balanced, healthy life when she was a nervous wreck. But she didn’t give up. She kept moving forward and worked hard to find the business support systems she needed to thrive in her practice.
Afterall, what did she really know about being an entrepreneur? Her passion was in health and wellness. It wasn’t that one day she finally figured it all out. Rather, it was that every step along the way was another puzzle piece fell into place. And one day, all the pieces fit together; she saw a beautiful picture.
So, what’s your completed puzzle look like? Are you gathering the right pieces along the way?
Well, you may have figured out by now that little Suzy was me, Suzanne Monroe, Founder of IAWP. Yep, that’s right, but please don’t call me Suzy! And now several years later, my life is completely different. And as you know, it didn’t happen overnight.
Here’s the moral of the story: Success comes from always taking another step forward with your passion. And when times are tough, it doesn’t mean that you’re not good at what you do or that you should give up.
Perseverance Paired with Passion is the Key to Success
