Her success is not your failure.

Sweet friend, please tell me I’m not the only one feeling this.

That every time you see someone similar (either in your same industry, your same age bracket, or who started their business when you did) SUCCEED in a big way, it feels like a jab to your gut.

You hear that voice: “Look at ALL that she’s accomplished, and here you are. Still in the same place. Still haven’t MADE it. Wasting your life, your talent, your money.”

I heard these voices this morning. “What has she done differently that made her SUCCEED and you FAIL?”

These are total LIES friends. We all have a part to play and we all are WHERE we are for a reason.

Let me prove it to you. I did a Periscope on it this morning, and would like to share it with you.

 

Today I did an impromptu Periscope about the saying currently circulating:

“Her success is not your failure”

– and an amazing verse that coincides with this topic and has a big lesson for us.

How passive income fits with an established business

When the success of your business is RELATIVE to the hours YOU put into it, you can quickly get burnt out.

But maybe you LOVE what you do, and can’t IMAGINE stopping.

But what if you could take on LESS clients, WORK less, maybe have TIME OFF and STILL make more money?

The secret is Passive Income. Setting up a system of income that takes your hours spent, and grows your reach AND your money.

I’m teaching a FREE training tomorrow, Wednesday March 30th at 12pm PST / 3pm EST. Sign up here to grab a spot. We will be giving away free stuff to the live viewers only, so make sure you join us live!

In my Periscope above, I talk about the 3 ways that creating a passive income stream HELPS your current business. Watch the video above or read the notes below.

You will be able to have seasons of slow (and be JUST fine).

Your business should serve your life. You can run a thriving business AND live your life. Life is too short to miss all the beauty. Having a passive income stream will help you to be able to take breaks, whether it’s for pleasure or for life’s disasters. I created my first passive income stream because of a medical emergency in which I knew I’d need to be out of the office. It was the best decision I’ve ever made for my business. Not only can I take breaks and take time off, it’s also helped grow my business in other ways, like:

You can demonstrate your expertise.

Passive income streams can help demonstrate your expertise. You can choose to sell your products TO your current customers, or people who serve your current customers. You will grow your clout and be known as an expert.

You can build an amazing community.

Because you are no longer working one-to-one, instead you’re working one-to-many. That means you’re able to help more people in less time, and GROW your audience. You can now help people who then tell other people, and your influence exponentially grows. My community has grown to international friendships because of my passive income streams. I’ve had in-person opportunities as well as online opportunities because of connections I made, that wouldn’t be possible if I was helping one-to-one.

Passive income does not have to be your full-time gig. It can be your side thing – that helps grow your business and it’s potential, and helps you live the life you deserve.

 


Join us TOMORROW, March 30th for a FREE training on Passive Income for Creative Businesses. This is a one-time lesson, and we are giving away prizes to live viewers. Grab a spot so that you don’t miss it!
