5 Ways That Dwelling Is Killing Your Business

… and why you need to stop.

The other day, someone asked a question of whether they should call out their competitors for buying cheap products overseas when they purchase theirs locally.

The answer is that both options have pros and cons, but the number one thing you shouldn’t do is dwell on the decision

You either do it. Or you don’t. 

Dwelling on decisions and stalling on action, can be the number one thing that causes your business to stall, and here are 5 reasons why:

1. It distracts you from your bigger goals – Every business should have one or two major goals that they are trying to achieve at any given time. The major goals in your business are those that will make the biggest impact and move the needle the most. Often times, the decisions we dwell on, are not those in relation to the major goals and they are usually smaller decisions that are not overly impactful in the greater scheme of things. Dwelling on these, takes you off course, and ends up causing you to lose focus on the things that are most important.

2. It uses up cognitive resources – We all know that as an entrepreneur, most days you come home from the day exhausted and fatigued. Depending on your industry, it can be physically, mentally or both. The thing is, we only have a finite reserve of energy and we want to make sure that we are using our energy for the things that are serving us to reach our goals. Using mental energy to dwell on decisions is never going to benefit your productivity and it will almost certainly end up delaying your results.

3. You miss other opportunities – The Reticulator Activator System (RAS) is a bundle of nerves at our brainstem that filters out unnecessary information so the important stuff gets through. Basically, it’s the reason why when you buy a new car, all of a sudden you see the same car everywhere! The RAS is tuned into filtering out things that are important and things that aren’t. When you focus on something, the brain sees it as important and looks for other things related to that. If it’s not your focus, then the brain filters it out. When you are dwelling on decisions of the past or stuck in dwelling on a current decision, your brain is focused on that, and is missing the countless other opportunities that are passing you by on a daily basis! 

4. You lose momentum – Momentum is hard to get and easy to lose. Momentum is also the thing though, that when you do have it, it will turn you into a business superhero! For momentum to take place, it involves two ongoing steps – keep taking action and keep getting results… whether they are small or big! You cannot get, or be in momentum when you’re standing still. So whilst you’re stuck or you’re dwelling on a decision, you are in effect standing still and definitely out of momentum. 

5. The moment passes – An opportunity can sometimes be fleeting. Becoming a YouTube star when it was first launched. Executing on email marketing before it got saturated. Buying a house in an area before it booms. Opportunities come and go, but real opportunities usually don’t last long and are either taken by someone else or the market catches up. Whenever you dwell on a decision, just know that the opportunity you’re dwelling on, may just pass you by.

I hope this convinces you to start making bolder and more swift decisions. You’re never going to get it right 100% of the time, but I can promise you that you will achieve more, get more gains and get closer to your goals by being a rapid and decisive action taker, instead of dwelling on your decisions. 

Be awesome,

Billy.

I’ve already poured over $350,000 into this year’s SALONGROWTHCON event (and the number continues to climb…)

Which might seem totally insane…   

I’ve had people ask me WHY

“Why would you dump that much cash on ONE event?” 
Because… I believe in you!

Because…I want you to feel the POWER of putting thousands of salon owners in a room together, learning from each other for two jam-packed days! 

Because…I want you (and your business) to come away forever CHANGED.

Because…I want you to experience that defining moment where you see the HUNDREDS of salon owners making serious changes to their life…
…and you truly realise that you can do it too.  

I believe in you that much… 

I hope you’ll join me on the Gold Coast in a few weeks…I can’t wait for you to see all the amazing stuff I have planned for you!

Trust Me: This Matters… A Lot!

There was a time not so long ago, that I was so broke I couldn’t afford to put milk on my cereal.

Yep thats right, one morning I had to choose between putting milk on my son’s cereal or my own because I couldn’t afford any more milk. 

Of course I chose his, and that morning I had water on my Weet-Bix, and this story always serves to remind me of how bad things were… and how far I’ve come.

What happened at the time, was that somebody I did a business deal with, really screwed me over and left me with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt because of their failure to pay. 

I had stupidly signed an agreement as a guarantor on a contract and when they fell through, I was left with all the debt! 

The more I am in business, the more I realise these things happen, and as much as we try to control things and protect ourselves, some times we just learn lessons the hard way.

I’ve wrote about this story a few times in more detail, but the point of this blog today is not about what happened in this moment, but about what I did to come back.

One of the things Im passionate about in entrepreneurship is being a problem solver. 

In business, I’ve never met a successful person yet that didn’t have an innate ability to look at any problem in the business – no matter how big or small – and always have the mindset of ‘let’s find a way to solve it.’

I think by-in-large, this is what separates successful entrepreneurs from those that don’t make it.

I posted on my Facebook page about this last week, and it amazed me how many people reached out and told me how much it hit home!

This mentality goes for anything in business. For example, if you found your new perfect location or you need to make an extra $20,000 this month.

Successful people don’t look at opportunities or targets and say I cant make it happen… they instead look at them and say how do I make it happen?!

This mindset and this way if thinking is exactly what I had at my worst moment, when I couldn’t afford milk, and it’s what allowed me to keep going and move forward to get myself out of it.

I never once thought that I couldn’t make it happen, I just constantly kept asking the question ‘how do I make it happen.’

I kept asking it until I found a way.

If there is anything you want or need in your business right now, and you think it’s out of reach, maybe you’re just saying the wrong thing. 

Maybe you’re not asking yourself the right question.

Image result for question gif

Instead of saying you can’t make it happen, start asking yourself ‘how can I make it happen’ and I promise you, your business will start to thrive.

You can start with with this mindset straight away!

If you’re wanting to come to SALONGROWTHCON 2019 because you know how much it will benefit you and your business, but you’re saying that you can’t make it happen…

Then flip it right now and ask instead ‘how can I make it happen?’

Become a problem solver in business, and keep going until you find a way.

Be awesome,

Billy.

Why I Created SALONGROWTHCON… And Why YOU Need To Be There!

My Mission: To Make Hair and Beauty Salon Owners Love Business As Much As They Do Hair And Beauty!

In a little under 3 months from now, 1,500 Salon Owners will be walking through the front door of the Gold Coast Convention Centre...

But how did we get to this point?

Well, in January 2018 I started my coaching program and in the first 12 months, we got over 100 Clients join us.

With this level of growth, and influx of clients, it didn’t take me long to identify that there were certain things in the hair and beauty industry that were broken…

… specifically – business skills, knowledge and business development.

You see, I don’t think that there are many other industries that come close to the passion that people have within the hair and beauty industry.

But the problem is, that passionate hair and beauty operators do not equal successful business owners. 

Just because you can cut hair well, or you can fix every skin concern known to man, it does not mean that if you open a business, you are going to succeed!

In business, you need much more than great technical skills…

… You need to know how to market, how to sell, how to lead your team, how to train, how to motivate, how to plan, how to balance a budget

In this industry, as passionate as we are, there are many many salon owners who can’t do these things…

… and worse yet – don’t know where to start!!

So at Christmas last year I had an idea…

… What if we held an event with all the best salon coaches, all the leading industry experts, all the people who had not only talked success, but had walked it too… 

… what if all of them taught what they know and passed it on to other salon owners at this one event??

Well, this is exactly what we have done and exactly what we have put together.

SALONGROWTHCON was born to service a need – to fill a void in the industry. To teach Salon Owners not about haircuts or colours, or about facials and waxing…

… It’s to teach Salon Owners about business – and the amazing opportunities that await them if they simply make a commitment to learn more about sales and marketing and leadership!

Abundance awaits every salon owner in the world, if they shift their focus away from their trade, and move it into the world of salonpreneurship.

We have 23 of the very best speakers over two days (June 15 – 16) on the Gold Coast, and I urge you to come and attend. 

If you’re worried about money, then make a commitment to find it. We even have payment plans now, where you can pay it off for only $65 a month!

Can’t afford flights or accomodation? We have packages available for you to save on that too! 

I want you there and I want you to succeed. So come and join me, 23 other speakers and 1,500 Salon Owners for one weekend that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

If you haven’t yet got your tickets, head to https://salongrowthcon.com to get yours before they’re all gone! 

I can’t wait to see you there. So until then, be awesome,

Billy!

I’m Giving Away 100 FREE Bots!!

Do You Want One?

One of the most popular things we do for people is build their Bots… Why?

… Because they make money…. a LOT of MONEY!

But if you’ve read this far, and are saying to yourself, ‘Wait, wait Billy… what the heck is a Bot?’

Well, they’re only the most EXCITING and effective marketing strategy you can use in your business right now! 

Bots use Facebook Messenger to chat to your clients… delivering your marketing message, in a customised and personalised form, straight into their Messenger inbox… all on autopilot!

We’ve created Bots for hundreds of Salons, Spas and Clinics, and have achieved over $30,000 in 24 hours from ONE single Bot! 

(Ok, that’s not the norm…. buuut, 100+ bookings from a single Bot or ten thousand dollars from a single bot, is not uncommon in our circles!)

Image result for what gif

Starting to get excited? I would be…

We use Bots for:

– Competitions
– Product Launches
– VIP Nights
– Service Information
– Client Feedback

… and so much MORE! 

The problem seems to be though, that people either don’t know how to get started with them, or don’t know how to create an effective Bot that seriously CONVERTS into sales and bookings!

People see some of the hype online, then dabble in it themselves, only to get frustrated and deflated when it doesn’t get them results! 

We have literally created over 10,000 Bots now for salons, and we know what doesn’t work…

… But most importantly, what DOES WORK!

So will all this being said, I wanted to give you the chance to try it for yourself – I want you to get RESULTS from Bots! 

So here’s the deal:

For the next 100 people to grab a ticket to my SALONGROWTHCON event this June, I’m going to GIVE you (that’s right, I said GIVE you) one free Bot build, normally valued by itself at $1,500!!

… And to make it even sweeter, if you’re one of the first 50, I’m going to also throw in a FREE Facebook Ads campaign, created by our insanely talented digital marketing team here at Coaching HQ. 

SALONGROWTHCON is going to be the biggest hair and beauty entrepreneurs event ever, and if you grab your ticket today, I’m going to GIVE you a Bot for FREE! (and maybe even a Facebook Ads campaign, if you act quick enough).

If you follow our strategy for Bots, then the small investment you need to make on your ticket purchase today, should actually end up paying for itself…

… So make sure you click the button below right NOW and get your ticket! 

There are only 100 of these Bots to give away, so you need to act FAST!
