Should you ever use personal or family money to fund your business?
A few weeks ago we did an episode on how to talk to your spouse about investing in your business – and WOW did we ever have a lot of response and private messages.
Today on Living Forward TV we are doing something a little bit different.
I’m super excited to unveil the launch of our new playlist “Behind The Scenes Tutorials”
While I do have an amazing team that takes care of a lot of my tasks – there was a time when I was a business of “ONE” and I had to do things myself.
I recently interviewed my good friend Sue Ferreira for Living Forward TV.
Sue made the transition from anaesthesiologist to entrepreneur in her 60’s! Yes, you read that right. After a very successful career as an esteemed physician, Sue decided it was time to do something different and serve others in a new way.
When a client owes you money and won’t pay, not only is it an upsetting experience, it can bring bad energy to the business. But, if it’s a big account, it also has the potential to affect your ability to pay your own bills and team.
In business there’s never a lack of opportunity to talk about money, and for some reason it’s always awkward, whether it’s asking for the sale, someone wanting a refund or a discount, or to hold their payment, or maybe it’s a team member negotiating their pay, or YOU’RE talking pricing with one of your vendors.
The way you show up in these conversations is KEY to having them be light, easy and graceful.
Have you ever been in a conversation with an acquaintance or someone you just met and you get the feeling they are likely an ideal client for you and you just have no idea how to transition this conversation from small talk to how you can help them? Do you worry if you do that you’ll come across as “salesy” or “sleezy”?
So instead of making an offer you just “hem and haw” around the topic and keep the conversation casual, or worse social. And then the conversation ends and you never know if that person could have been your next perfect client.
Frustrating isn’t it?
Imagine on your next project, event or launch, having all of your expenses taken care of before you even begin!
I was so thrilled when Charmaine Hammond from Raise a Dream agreed to be interviewed and to share her knowledge about how corporate sponsorships are a lucrative (and untapped) revenue source for entrepreneurs.
As entrepreneurs it’s natural from time to time to feel like we’re just so far in over our heads with “to-do’s” that we don’t know how we’re going to get it all done. And unfortunately, that thinking just makes it worse because it shuts down the ability to problem solve and think creatively.
