This week I share with you a massive mistake that I made recently and why it’s important to not let them get in your way.
I made a huge mistake. I took a contract for helping another business coaching company because I was lured in by the money. The company was focused on helping large corporate businesses, a type of client I actively avoid in my own business.
It’s not that there is no money in working with those clients, in fact, there are HUGE amounts of cash being thrown around. It is more that I just don’t enjoy dealing with all the red tape and power struggles that come with dealing with these types of clients.
What I failed to do was stop and think, “does this fit with my own objectives for MY business?” – the answer was no but it took me 5 weeks to realise it.
This experience reminded me that none of us is infallible and it’s important to own our mistakes and learn from them. It also was a stark reminder that you should only ever pursue things that make you happy, it may take longer to get the money but you will be far happier in the long run.
