Biz Hacks - 6 Daily Habits

Ok, so you’ve started your biz while you’re still doing the 9-5 thing, big props to you… but the overwhelm of trying to ‘do it all’ is getting to you and you’re feeling spent, burnt out and wondering what its all for.

It looks like everyone else is on easy street and has their stuff together while your burning the midnight oil trying to not loose your shit.

You got so much you want to get done, and you don’t even know where to start and your thinking…. argh, what the hell am I doing this all for!

And to make things worse you’re just not getting the clients you want, so your cashflow is more like a cashblock. All that overwhelm is blocking the money from flowing into your biz.

Holy moly sista, that’s enough for even me to wanna throw in the towel.

But before you do, I wanna let ya in a not so secret secret that helped me ditch the overwhelm, get productive on the shit that matters and boost my cashflow in my biz.

It aint a secret in the fact that most biz coaches will share this with you in one way or another, and they all have their own twist on it.
And of course I’ve tweaked it to work the best for me… but the basis of it remains the same across all the teachings.
So here are my 6 Daily Habits to Help Ditch Overwhelm and Boost Cashflow in Ya Biz…

BIG FREAKING NOTE: The key to them is the sequence in which you do them. Switch the order up and you’ll find yourself right back where you started.

Each of these actions are done in this order so that you can get the most important tasks done first, not wasting your time first thing clearing emails

I repeat NOT CLEARING EMAILS FIRT THING!

These habits are designed for you to steer the ship, not for everyone elses demands to derail you.

And yes, they take practice, and yes even I don’t always follow them every single day.

These days I know that if I’m straying from my habits I’m going through a growth phase in the biz and there is resistance around stretching myself with some of the actions I’ve set.

And as I say in all my Biz Hacks, this is not the ONE AND ONLY thing I do to consistently sell out of adventures, and book epic clients.

It’s one of many different puzzle pieces that fit together to form a strong foundation of mindset tools, well oiled systems and tried and tested systems.

So, give this a go for a month and see what happens in your biz.

They say it takes 21 days to start to form a new habit, but realistically 3 months will start to cement this biz boosting habits.

And I know, that if you’re consistent in these habits, that the overwhelm will start to fall away quickly and the cash flow will start to build.

Here’s to you and your new biz habits!

1. INTENTIONAL JOURNALING

I bet ya didn’t see that one coming! The first thing I do every morning before I start work is journal. Now not just any kind of journaling…. intentional journaling. Why journal and what’s the difference?

Journaling warms you brain up, it allows it to be creative, to be free to write what’s coming up for you, what you’re noticing, so you can tune you mind in on what you want to focus on.

You wouldn’t hit the weights at the gym without warming up properly and the same goes for you biz.

Intentional Journaling is all about answering questions that allow your brain to search for the answer, and directly focus it in on areas.

Ie How can the universe help me today? This presupposes that the universe will help you, and you’re brain searches for ways it can.

Or, Where is there evidence that my biz is already a success? Your brain has to; again, go looking for the answer and produce facts and scenarios that your biz is successful.

And an epic side effect from seeing what you write down is a boost you confidence as you see the evidence in front of you that you are writing.

So imagine if after 20 mins of journaling in the morning you could connect into your message and your ultimate clients, know that you’re on track and see the evidence in front of you…. image how that would make you feel as you get started on your day!

Thats why the very first thing you do before you open your computer in the morning is Intentional Journaling

2. KNOW THY MONEY OR BOOKING GOAL

Ok, so your brain is all warmed up from journaling and you’re now ready to get started, BUT before you crack into the tasks at hand…

Thou shall know thy money or booking goal.

Let’s address something first though. If you are not setting yourself a money or booking goal then you need to start doing that right now…. like right now!

Stop reading this and work out how much money you need to be creating or how many bookings you need to be taking weekly so you know where you’re heading and if you are on track.

You can’t measure what you’re tracking, and if you’re in biz, then babe you need to know how much cash needs to be flowing into your biz.

This trips up so many start up stary eye solorepreneurs, who haven’t had to consider this in the jobs you’re worked in.

So, if you don’t already, this is the time to set your weekly money or booking goal.

Now if you do know ya money goal or your booking goal, thats rad!

The reason this is in as the second habit is so you can see where you’re tracking for the week.

At the start of the day take a look at your goal, whats come in and whats left to do.

From here you can choose to steer the ship in a different direction if you’re not where you want to be.

This is the power in knowing thy numbers!

 

3. MONEY MAKING OR SALES ACTIONS

The basic formula for biz is money in – money out = money left over

Rocket science I know right?!?! But you’ll be surprised how far down the list people put their money making or sales actions.

These are the first things you should spend your time on… why… because in order to bring money into your kick ass biz you gotta be putting action into that area.

Whether it’s creating an email sequence, writing you newsletter, posting a testimonial online, private messaging a raving fan, following up on a sales call, reaching out to guest blog, asking a friend to share your event, or a truck tonne other activities, these have gotta be done straight off the bat.

Your energy is fresh, your connected to you message from journaling and you know where you need to put your focus so go get em tiger!

Now you are cringing at the thought of the word ‘sales’, and you picture a icky sales person who’s trying to sell you shit you don’t need, then this is the perfect opportunity for growth.

Sales is a natural part of biz, and there are plenty of ways you can be in 100% integrity while you’re sharing you’re message with the world.

One of the ways I love to look at this is, that selling is all about building relationships with your ultimate client in a way that is authentic and real.

You have to build trust in order for people to wanna invest in you, and you have gotta be solving a problem that they have.

When your ultimate client knows, likes and trusts you, they will with easy choose to work with you.

So if you have any blocks around sales and money, I’d invite you to start exploring how to move through these to open up the flood gates to letting the money flow into your biz.

And in the meantime, make sure you set yourself between 3 and 10 sales actions a day to build your money momentum.

 

4. GROWTH ACTIONS

In order for your biz to evolve and grow you have to take actions towards that… ok, that sounds a little too simple.
Let me break it down for you.

Each day you wanna aim to be taking an action towards those things that you have set up as part of your long term growth ie increasing your database, creating content to use as lead generations, writing chapters of your book, launching a new event or program.

This stuff is super important for the bigger vision of your biz, and can be easily tackled on a daily basis, so you don’t have a massive daunting task to do all at once.

Think about growth actions as the stuff that is going to pull your biz forward into the next level.

If this action isn’t done consistently, you biz will hit a point of stagnation, and you’ll wonder why your biz, your clients and you cashflow isn’t growing.

 

5. ADMIN ACTIONS

So here is the action that usually gets done first. You start ya day by opening your computer and start checking all you fav sites …

*cough* Facebook. *cough*, and ya emails… nex-minit, 30mins or even an hour has gone by and you’ve so far down the rabbit whole of scrolling aimlessly through Gloatbook (sorry… Facebook) that you’re brain has disengaged, or worse it’s in a state of comparison, and not in a useful way… grrrr!

Or you’re now ‘busy’ replying to everyone elses requests before you get onto the stuff that’s gonna bring in the money.

Yes, I get that there are potential clients in your emails, and yes you need to get back to them and the other things in there… I’m not saying they are not important.

I’m saying that once you’re in your emails it’s a vortex of bumping your sales actions.

So save this task and your fiddly admin jobs for a couple hours in the afternoon. If you’re onto this daily then people messaging you won’t be waiting more than 24 hour to hear from you.

And I can promise you that the consistent money making action will produce the cashflow you’ve been longing for!

 

6. REVIEW, RESET & REPEAT

Before you hit the shut down button on your computer, take 15mins to do a review on ya day and reset for tomorrow, so you can repeat.

So much expansion and growth happens when you review your day.

In here you can look for the lessons from the shit that didn’t work, you can check your progress on your monthly goals, review your targets, see where you’re getting derailed during the day, see what money making actions are getting the best results.

You can have a series of questions you can run through at the end of the day… things like

  • What’s one thing thats not working that I can stop doing
  • What’s money making action is getting me the best results
  • Did I reach my money or booking goal, is so why?, if not what can I do to get back on track

Make sure they are crafted to pull out all the golden nuggets from the day the you can use to catapult your biz forward.

Then from that, reset your money or booking goal, get clear on your money and growth actions, and you are good to go for tomorrow.

So there you have it… 6 Daily Habits To Help Ditch Overwhelm And Boost Cashflow In Ya Biz.

YOU’RE WELCOME!

Just remember though that the sequence is the key to ditching overwhelm and boosting your cash flow.
And as I said above, this is not the ONE AND ONLY thing I do to consistently sell out of adventures, and book epic clients.

It’s one of many different puzzle pieces that fit together to form a strong foundation of mindset tools, well oiled systems and tried and tested systems.

So, give this a go for a month and see what happens in your biz.

They say it takes 21 days to start to form a new habit, but realistically 3 months will start to cement this biz boosting habits.

And I know, that if you’re consistent in these habits, that the overwhelm will start to fall away quickly and the cash flow will start to build.

Here’s to you and your new biz habits!
