    Don’t think I’ve been making those 5 🙂 But probably a few others

      Linda,
      It is a lesson in identifying your excuses whatever they are. Everyone has them, you can eliminate what you recognize!

      Hugs, Melissa

  2. Great points, Melissa! I wasted a lot of time in needless worry about where the clients would come from when I was fiddling with my websites and agonizing over the perfect branding and elevator speech. All I had to do to get all the business I could handle was to get out there and meet people, speak, etc. The people who need you most will find you if you — unless you are in hiding!

    • Melissa Galt says:

      You are so right Lisa! Glad to hear you figured out the not so mysterious secret to a booming business!

      Hugs, Melissa

    My excuse is NOT ENOUGH TIME. Problem is that I WANT to get started, but life gets in the way. Planning, devoting certain times, goals are all good, but there is just so much energy available to this old guy. I think that if I get started, I won’t be able to service any clients properly. This has already happened once to my financial advice website. Ran out of time and steam, and lost a significant number of followers. I MUST finish the house I’m remodeling for us so that we are not living amid construction the rest of our lives. I try to stay on track with Melissa Galt and a couple of others. Their encouragement keeps my hopes up; but I wish I could begin to put things into place and build my business. That time IS coming!

      Dale,
      The key is to complete one project at a time and don’t start any new ones until you’ve completed what you already have going. Multi-tasking is the fastest way to fail at everything. Singular focus gets the job done and lets you move on to the next with confidence and energy.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Melissa,

    This email topic resonated very deeply with me. I was moving along fairly well until a few weeks ago when I closed out a few client projects at the same time I ran into a marital crises. Since then my head is not completely in my Biz and I’m floundering emotionally. Seems my tentative tie to some potential clients did not come to fruition and my social media buzz is not even a peep.

    How do I get back on track and do more than put one foot in front of the other?

    • Melissa Galt says:

      Lynn,
      Your best bet is to put one foot in front of the other. I’ve always found that when in a personal crisis, work is a great distraction and I get uber productive. Don’t allow challenges in one area of your life to detract from your mightiness in another area of life (your work.) KEEP GOING!

      Hugs, Melissa

    Love this post. In a world where everyone wants to have the appearance of being in business, we need to stop the excuses and get moving on the work we’ve been called to do.
