Are you playing it too safe in your business? What if…

Hey awesome smart one. It’s Nicole Dean from

You know that old quote about insanity?

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and
expecting different results.”

We don’t know for sure if it was Einstein who said it first
or if he was quoting Mark Twain, Ben Franklin, or a Chinese
proverb but it’s wise regardless. 🙂

So, I’ve been in online business for (gulp) 13 years now
and the ONLY way that I’ve grown to the point that I have is
by stretching myself.

It’s scary sometimes. And other times it’s plain hard
and it involves me sweating profusely (and sometimes swearing
a bit too). Yet I do it. Most of the time.

(Other times, I don’t. Because it’s hard. I’m just being real with you.)

Why do I push myself to do the hard stuff? Because if I was still playing it safe
behind my computer doing the easy stuff, I would still be getting the
same results that I was getting back in 2004.

And that thought makes me sweat a whole lot more.

So, what if…

You stretched?

What if…

You did some of the hard things that you keep “meaning” to do.
Those same things that have been sliding down your to do list
from day to day to week to month to year and they don’t get done,
because it’s easier (and safer) to do the little things that feel urgent
and important – even though they aren’t giving you the same ROI
(return on investment) of your time and energy?

What if…

You decided to stretch and were surrounded by people who were ALSO
scared but were stretching anyway?

What could that look like in a month? (Ooh. I’m getting goosebumps.)

My dear friend Kelly McCausey hosts a “Stretch Yourself” challenge
regularly and she’s starting one in April.

I would encourage you to check it out and consider signing up if you feel
like you want to stretch a little.

Some of the things she’ll challenge you to do include:
Challenge #1: Tell Everyone You’re Stretching
Challenge #2: Share Your Expertise & Promote It Like Crazy 
Challenge #3: Refresh Older Content
Challenge #4: Engage in a Cross Blog Conversation
Challenge #5: Hold a Webinar or Teleseminar To Grow Your List
Challenge #6: Host a Facebook Live Series
Challenge #7: Offer & Host A Group Coaching Intensive 
Challenge #8: Create a Small & Mighty Gift Report 
Challenge #9: Make an Intentional Connection
Challenge #10: Gather & Publish Testimonials 
Challenge #11: Volunteer/Apply To Speak Live

What if you only did half of those things? Would that maybe, just
maybe, stretch you out of your comfort zone into your awesome zone –
and increase your profits? 🙂

I think so.

If you’re interested, be sure to sign up here so you can get your awesome on.

Have an amazing week!

Warmly and with big hugs,
