10 Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Your Biz On (Pt 1)

10 Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Your Biz On (Pt 1)

Today we’re talking about 5 of the 10 questions you should ask yourself before getting your biz on. What I mean by that is, when you’re trying to figure it all out, or trying to get into motion, here are 10 questions to consider (I’ll be covering 5 today, and 5 next week.)

These are questions that I ask myself and I “rinse and repeat” them all the time. Not to just validate what I’m doing, but to come up with new ideas that I can go ahead and implement.

If you take the time to write out these questions and journal the heck out of it, you’ll be able to pull out nuggets that will really help you position your brand. In fact, I’ll be answering these questions right along with you, so you can pull an actionable example straight from it.

Let’s jump in.

Question #1: What are you freakishly good at?
I’m freakishly good at smelling the money in your business. I’m also freakishly good at coming up with words that help people understand what to do next.

Question #2: What do you geek out about?
I geek out on books. I read a new book or re-read a book at least once a week (you should see my library…) I love office supplies. I geek out on Lord of the Rings and I love my Thursday night T.V. And of course, I geek the hell out on branding!

Question #3: If you were horribly superficial and a shallow person, what would you say about yourself?
The reason this is a question is because a lot of us try to stay humble and we think that means staying quiet. But do you notice the people who really put themselves out there are those that get seen, get heard, and get paid? So if you put yourself in this position – in this alternate universe – what would you say about yourself?

Question #4: What do you want to be known for?
I want to be known for helping people build legacies, and for showing women how to rise to their divine power.

Question #5: What are you bored of? What are you done talking about? What are you done being known for?
I decided a while back that I’m done being known for helping big celebrities get seen, get heard, and get paid. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful for that. I’m very grateful for the fact that my agency has helped a number of personality brands and big, big businesses get there. But I wanted to help small business owners have the same opportunities to build a Master Brand (hence it’s my flagship program).

Next week we’ll be going through the second half of our list, but in the meantime, what are you ready to be known for (or not known for)? Share your takeaways in the Paid To Be You Posse and #COL (Celebrate Our Loud). My Team and I will be on the lookout, and you know how we reward action takers (wink wink)!

    I’m ready to be known for Helping others achieve Total Wellness, for helping them avoid the chronic illness that plague their family’s history and may be staarting to effect them.
    Actually I’m giving my first talk on September 22, at the Exposition Park library at 6:45pm. I am hoping to schedule a few more in the coming weeks at some of the other branches.I’m hoping these will start bi-monthly group (of 10) meetings, that pay on a monthly basis and once I get my own place I can start developng regular individual clients clients.
