"I've been doing this for a couple of years. Business has always come to me through referrals and people I know. But that's started to slow down..."
"I don't know where to start" Don said.
"I've been doing this for a couple of years. Business has always come to me through referrals and people I know."
"But that's started to slow down."
Don was being honest about his situation. He'd reached out for help and we were on the phone discussing what his options were to grow his consulting business.
"What are you doing right now to market your business?" I asked.
"I've tried so many things Michael. Nothing really seems to be working." he said.
"The part that really concerns me is my family life."
"What do you mean Don?"
"Last month I only billed $4000 and I'm starting to feel the squeeze and so is my wife. She hasn't actually said anything... but she has been very high strung for the last couple of weeks and I know it's because of finances. I'm starting to worry that my anxiety will come out in client meetings and the last thing I need right now is a downward spiral. And, I guess, well, I'm starting to doubt myself."
Don and I continued to talk about his situation and what steps he should take to get his marketing back on track.
Fast forward 6 weeks and Don's got clarity and is making real progress in his business..."
He's gone from a barren pipeline filled with haunting silence to having 3-4 conversations a week with high-value buyers.
His wife is cheering him on and his business is growing.
Don's situation isn't unusual.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed with all the noise and hype in the marketplace these days.
