I know how frustrating and scary it can be when things aren’t going your way in your business.
I’ve been there more than once!
But here’s the good news: In this business, things can turn around very quickly. Unlike big corporations (which might need thousands of new clients to reverse a downward trend), you only need one or two really good ones to go from Hamburger Helper to a steak dinner. In the course of a few days (or even hours), your entire business outlook can change.
Maybe a new client comes through out of the blue. Or a prospect you’ve been nurturing for years is suddenly keen and ready to get going. The stars align!
But then you’re faced with a new problem: You have more work than you can handle!
This kind of thing happens more often than you’d think. I experienced it during the financial crisis of 2008. I lost my biggest client — a client that brought in 50% of my revenue!
I was burning through my savings at an alarming rate. I was really, really worried. Things were looking bad, to say the least.
It took me six months to land the client that (literally) saved my business. And the whole thing came together almost overnight.
My first project with this client was worth $19,000. I vividly remember driving over to pick up the deposit check. It was magical. Especially considering that the week before I was wondering how much longer I could live off our savings.
Of course, I can’t promise that the same thing will happen for you. But these things CAN happen.
Focus on taking the right kinds of action. Double your efforts and keep pushing forward.
Before you know it, you might face the new challenge of having too much work on your plate.
