How to Stop Acting Like Your Own Worst Client

April 20, 2020

Imagine you had a client who consistently failed to complete her tasks for the week.

She couldn’t find the time to get her email opt-in page completed.

She was too busy to write the next chapter of her book.

She was working too hard and completely forgot to put together her webinar presentation.

I know, I know …. this woman is not going to be in busy long.

It would not take long before you sat her down for a serious talk about the future of your working relationship—and her business. A client such as that is a frustrating waste of time.

Why, then, do you continue to accept these and other excuses from yourself?

Why is your lack of business development allowed to continue, even when you know how important those tasks are to your future growth?

Now, before you go thinking I am being way too hard on you, know this: we all struggle with this very issue.

We all put our clients, our family, our friends, and even the neighbor we barely know before ourselves.

But I am giving you permission right now to stop doing that and start treating yourself like the VIP you really are.

It is time to put your business growth ahead of that of your clients.
Let’s be real, if you do not get a handle on things … you will be doing a disservice to those individuals you should be serving but will not be.
Only by ‘doing’ will you be able to serve and make a difference, reach a larger audience, and achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

The simplest way to do this is to just make appointments with yourself.
That hour or two you have free on Thursday afternoon? Do not book a client call in that spot.

Book yourself. ME TIME!

Mark it on your calendar, and treat it as an unbreakable appointment, just as you would an appointment with a client, your doctor, or your accountant.

Spend time working on items that are going to move the needle.

  • Focus on serving groups of people
  • Develop a new signature program
  • Write a chapter of your upcoming book
  • Write emails for your autoresponder
  • Learn to automate your business
  • Delegate tasks
  • Self-care 😊

Do those things you tell your clients to do—the things your own coach is likely advising.

Do not push them aside for “later” or “after your client work is done.”

Elevate yourself to VIP client status and begin to put yourself first.

Your business and your accountant will thank you for it.
