Do you ever find yourself sitting down to write a blog and having no idea what to write about?

Maybe you are trying to write a sales page and don’t know where to start. I’ve been there and it’s super frustrating.

Ready to use a super easy strategy to get unstuck?

In this video I’m sharing one reason why you might feel stuck in your business and I’m going to give you one strategy to get you unstuck… and the strategy I’m going to reveal to you is the exact same strategy I’ve used in my business for the last 4 years so I know it works and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Back in 2011 I felt stuck. I just had my second child and I wanted to get out of the trading hours for dollars game. I knew my group weight loss program was good; I was getting requests to teach my methods but I had no idea what to do first or how to go about putting together an online program.

Maybe you’ve experienced similar feelings…

Self-doubt.

Not knowing how to get started.

Having too many to do’s on your list.

When I was at the beginning stages of taking my business online I had no idea what I was doing, my self-doubt was at an all time high and I started to second guess everything. I flip flopped from not taking action to doing 50 things in 50 different directions which actually got me nowhere.

I share this with you because I want you to know that you are not alone in feeling this way. I felt stuck back in 2011 and I’ve felt stuck a couple times since then too.

IMPORTANT: The one main reason people get stuck is because they have a bad strategy or no strategy at all.

I’m not talking about figuring out your ideal client, your niche or the archaic one time consultation and the 1 to 2 time follow up model. 

If you are feeling stuck it’s likely because you don’t have a business model, systems or marketing and sales tools that you implement to turn your dream business and life into a reality.

The business stuff is something you need to get excited about because being stuck really isn’t your fault — there is nothing wrong with you or your capabilities, it’s just that you lack the right strategies that work to move your business forward.

And if you are just starting out it’s hard to know who to trust when you have a gazillion guru’s preaching that their own proven system is the magic pill that will turn your life around.

So how do you know if you have a bad strategy?

Answer these simple questions…

Question # 1: Do you have a clearly defined goal that you want to achieve in the next 90 days?

Question # 2: Do you know the steps you need to take to reach that goal?

If you answered yes, then that’s awesome. Go ahead and GSD. But if you answered no… believe me that’s ok and totally normal. It also means you are probably feeling stuck.

How do you get unstuck and find the right strategy for your business goals?

One of the best ways to get unstuck quickly is to find someone who is more successful than you and who has the kind of business you want to build. Model their strategies. There is no reason to recreate the wheel.

Share your goals with this person and ask for their help in determining which strategies would work the best for you.

The best part about modelling someone else’s success is that you can take pieces of their strategies that you like, that are inline with the way you want to run your business and leave out the parts that don’t resonate.

TIP: One of the ways I model success is by using other people’s high-value content as an outline for writing my own content. I rarely start from scratch. I create an outline for my own content from someone else’s blog or webinar and that helps me frame my own content. When I don’t do that I’d still be staring at a blank page trying to think of what to write.

And as your business grows the strategies you used to use might not work anymore and you’ll get stuck again. That’s why it’s invaluable to your growth to have a mentor or business coach who can help you see what you can’t.

Getting unstuck requires taking action and implementing a new strategy – – my recommendation is to model success. Don’t waste time recreating the wheel.
