Are you feeling a bit stuck when it comes to your income? Like you’ve hit a plateau and can’t seem to surpass it? We’ve all been there before at some point in our journey of running a small business and the tendency is to believe the myth that we just need to work HARDER or put in MORE hours or push, push, push until our bodies break and relationships suffer. Bleh… no thanks. There’s definitely a better way.
My special guest today is Amira Alvarez and she’s simplifying how to make an income breakthrough. She’s sharing all the inside secrets on how to master the inner game of entrepreneurship and manage your mindset to grow your business. If you’ve been pushing for way too long and ready to try something different, grab a pen and paper… and get ready to take notes. This episode could spark you on a new path towards tripling your income in one year like Amira did.
My special guest today is Amira Alvarez and she’s simplifying how to make an income breakthrough.
We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:
- What (typically) stops most female small business owners from hitting a certain threshold of income – what’s really happening underneath it all
- Working more hours does NOT equal more income… she shares a better way to look at it, strategically:
- identify your blocks
- focus on the most essential, needle-moving actions like sales
- What the 7 questions are that you must ask every single prospective client that’s going to help you get closer to 7-figure sales this year:
- What do you want? Then, what’s important to you about having that?
- What’s stopping you from having what you want?
- So, are you saying… ???
- What happens if you don’t solve this?
- Are you committed to solving this?
- Great, would you like to hear about how I can help you with this?
- Would you like to get started today?
- …and ultimately, what the 3 simple and effective ways that you can scale your work this year to significantly increase your income and how to decide which is best, when:
- Raise your prices
- Sell more quantity, and/or
- Add a new channel of income
In the middle of our conversation together, she mentions something called the “Cybernetic Mechanism,” a concept that originated from author Maxwell Maltz. And here’s what that means, simply…
Our self-image is the cornerstone of our mental state, and therefore all the successes and failures that happen in our life are a result of our beliefs of who we are and what we THINK we can achieve… or not.
So, our ability to hit our goals is actually based on beliefs that were passed on to us by others. And these beliefs are like anchors that hold us down or sometimes, hold us back.
Keep this in mind as you listen to our conversation today…
Take a moment here and there to press pause and consider what thoughts or beliefs you hold on to as truth, right now. Which ones are still serving you… and which do you need to let go of?
Remember, until you reprogram your subconscious mind, you will not make progress here as your body, heart and mind are ALL programmed to come back to status quo with your cybernetic mechanism. However, Amira shows us a way to break through to the other side.
Remember… you TRULY have unlimited potential and your “old conditioning” and beliefs likely need an upgrade in order to make positive change in your future thoughts, behaviors and actions.
You’re on the right path… keep going!
