You Don’t Live in a Big City, But You Want a Big Business?
Are you letting your geography stand in the way of scaling your business?
Let’s explore how you can show up BIG while still living in a small town – we live in a global community, which means the internet connects us at the touch of a button. Fifty years ago, you probably would have struggled to build a big business without moving to a big city, but now you can do it from literally ANYWHERE. So, please cross “location” off your list of excuses as to why your business isn’t as big as you’d like it to be. We are going to solve that problem right now.
My niece, Lakeisha Michelle, told me back in 2014, “I’m committed to living the laptop life.” After learning more about it, I embraced the idea, and the two of us headed to Barcelona, where we stayed for a month – all we needed to run our business was a laptop. We had a blast, and never let our work slide, because with a laptop and the internet, we could work from wherever we chose. It was a beautiful experience!
You don’t need to live in a big city to be able to make big contributions. If your business is meeting people’s needs and solving problems, your clients don’t care where you live. The important question is: Do you work with passion and share it with the world in a big way? How can you share your business online, so that the world can experience your commitment to quality and desire to serve others? I’m able to share with all of you, most of whom don’t live anywhere near me, but that doesn’t stop me from showing up consistently, sharing the nuggets of valuable information that I feel will best serve you.
I have some contributors at Motivating the Masses who live in other parts of the country, but that doesn’t keep them from sharing their gifts with our organization and with you. What a wonderful time we live in! Look at all of the people we might never know or get to work with if it were the 1970’s or 80’s. Take advantage of this opportunity – get your big ideas and contributions out into the world, where they can be shared freely, regardless of your location.
Think about how you connect with people online…pay attention to the online presence that draws your attention or meets your needs in a particular way. While still being authentically YOU, learn from others, and then tweak their methods to meet your needs. How are they connecting with you, and how often? What kinds of online tools and programs do they take advantage of? Build your own online presence by modeling those who have come before you.
As I always say, this community is your tribe, and I want this to be a dialogue where we all share. Share your ideas, takeaways and #BOL (breakthrough out loud) in the chat. We can all grow and learn together when we all contribute to the conversation. Tell us where you live, and how you are able to serve the global community from your location. I truly love you and I believe in you. I know that you have gifts to bring to the world, whether you live in a huge city or on a farm in the middle of the country. We are blessed to have the ability to meet in this beautiful community where we are connected in co-creation and love.
