Why We’re A Stand For 6-Figures

A few weeks ago, I came across an article in my Facebook feed, calling out coaches and mentors who teach “how to create 6-figures.”  Which we do, at Goddess Business School®.

The article really made me think.

I’ve been in this industry for a while, now – since 2008.

The “6-figures” message has gone in and out of style.

When it’s in style, it’s a cliché.  “Make 6-figures and change your life!”  I’ve often been coached by my mentors to ditch the message because it’s so overused.

Meanwhile, for every “Make 6-figures!” coach… there are the people who call them out on the carpet for everything from making big promises they can’t keep, to funneling all of their clients through the same “blueprint,” to pushing an agenda that’s more about money and ego than impact.

“6-figures” is a number that people kinda love to hate.

Now, truth be told – the naysaying lands with me.  I hear it.  And I feel the frustration of the “anti-6-figure” crowd.  (“Anti-6-figure” being too simplistic, of course, but for simplicity’s sake.)

Nonetheless, when I created Goddess Business School®, nearly 8 years ago… I chose the “how to make 6-figures” positioning (and designed our program to deliver that outcome) very intentionally and deliberately.

And I take a strong stand for 6-figures, to this day.

At Goddess Business School®, we believe, hand-to-heart, that your 6-figure income breakthrough matters.  Here’s why.

1. You’re financially supported. 6-figures certainly doesn’t go as far as it used to. But it’s fair to say that, barring unusual circumstances (8 kids, anyone?) one can have their basic financial needs covered – and then some – on a 6-figure income.

In other words, at 6-figures, you’re starting to make some real money – money for things above and beyond your basic living expenses like self-care, vacations, education fund, saving for the future, etc.

Provided that you’re managing that money well, with a 6-figure income you are firmly OUT of wondering how you’re going to pay your bills.  Your energy is freed up to focus on what matters.

2. You’re reaching your people. What I’m about to say may trigger you, but here is what I know after working with hundreds of women over the years:

If your business is not at 6-figures or higher, you are not having much of an impact… yet.

No question that your work can change lives!  But it’s not changing many lives… yet.

We all know that money is NOT the end-all, be-all!  But in the transformation fields (coaching, healing, workshop facilitation, etc), it’s a fantastic measurement for the impact you’re having.  You have to be reaching and helping a certain number of people, either directly or indirectly (through your clients) in order to receive that income.

3. Who you BECOME in the process.  As the saying goes, what got you here won’t get you there. 6-figures as a self-employed person requires entirely different ways of thinking, acting and BE-ing than what you need in the 9-to-5.  And that’s a great thing.

There’s a reason they say being an entrepreneur is the best personal development curriculum on the planet!

So much of creating a thriving business is about the inner game – and when you reach that milestone you know you’ve worked through some stuff and come out shining.

4. It’s the first step to creating something greater than yourself. One way to create lasting impact is through legacy – what we create that lasts longer than ourselves and touches the lives of so many more than we could reach on our own.

You may never want to create a multi-6-figure business or 7-figure business, and that’s fine.  (Your path is YOUR path.)

But if you DO feel called to “go big or go home”… 6-figures is your first step to whatever your endgame is.

5. Because it’s really possible. Fact is, it’s really not that much harder to make 6-figures than $25k.  Yes, creating a 6-figure a business is hard work at times, but if you’re going to be working hard, why not do it for more money than less?

And the great news is, it doesn’t have to be hard.  The main reason people DO end up working too hard is because they don’t have systems and structures in place – like the ones we teach in Goddess Business School®.

When you have those systems, making great money can actually be easy.   (We have GBS graduates who make 6-figures and multi 6-figures in 20 hours a week.)

Money may not be the end-all, be-all… but it will always be important.  We believe that having more money in the hands of women who are modeling generosity, compassion, service and personal mastery is going to go a long way toward healing the money wounds of the collective.

And that starts with a thriving business – 6-figures in income and impact.

How To Free Up 60+ Minutes A Day To Build Your Business

One of the hottest commodities for conscious entrepreneurs is TIME.  It’s all too easy to let a perceived lack of time become an obstacle that stops you dead in your tracks.

How can you possibly build your business when it already feels like you have soooo much on your plate and not enough hours in the day?

Here’s the most important thing to understand: this is more a MINDSET issue than a TIME issue.

The reality of time is that it’s the great equalizer – we all have the same amount of it. You and I have the same amount of time in a day as the president, Oprah, and every other insanely busy person on the planet.

However, most people let their day happen to them instead of having control over their day. And if you continue to do that, nothing will change for you.

So first and foremost, you need two critical Feminine Leader mindsets:

1. Building my business is a mission-critical priority. Oprah is very on-mission. She’s willing to put up with some discomfort because she is doing her bigger work in the world.

2. Nobody controls my day but me. Chances are you’re spending far too much time on activities that do not produce income and that are taking care of other people. You’re letting other people dictate how your day goes – their needs, their demands and their drama.

Then you need simple practices to eliminate leaks and reclaim your time for what truly matters.

Here are 2 simple steps you can take to free up an hour or more of time each day for your business, even if you are still in a full time job:

Step 1: Take out your calendar and list all of your commitments for 7 days.

Do a “time audit” of all the leaks. Where is time going to other people’s needs, requests or dramas? Then ask yourself this magic question: what do you have to say NO to, in order to say YES to the business you really want?

For example, if you’re in a full-time job, here’s what you may have to say NO to:

• No to working on your lunch break for your boss when you could be working on your lunch break for your business OR relaxing
• No to the idea that you’re going to get fired if you you’re not working 24×7 for them
• No to any form of “I have to or I won’t get money”
• No to checking and responding to emails constantly throughout the day.
• No to doing everything for everyone else before you do for you.

Step 2: Clear the decks.

Make a list of the distractions, interruptions and time stealers you identified and begin to implement boundaries. This may look like unsubscribing to mailing lists you never read, cutting the time you spend on social media or watching TV in half, even pulling back from relationships that drain you.

You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to reclaim an hour or more per day just by setting boundaries. This may be a little uncomfortable at first, but this is about creating YOUR reality. Remember… mission-critical.

Bonus tip: If you already have team in place, let GO of email. Create a super-secret email just for your most personal inner circle, and release all the public/business email to be sorted, handled and answered by an assistant. Seriously, this can free up multiple hours per day for most entrepreneurs!

Step 3: Create a framework for your day.

Choose the days you work, choose the hours you work, and then choose what happens during those hours. Hour by hour, write out a template for yourself.

Now don’t get me wrong, there will be crunch times, but always remember that this is an investment in your future. When you have a step-by-step path and when you KNOW what you need to be focusing on and what you can let go of – all of a sudden that investment gets a LOT easier.

An added benefit is that when you embrace these mindsets and take these steps you can apply them to your life as well as your business. The things that are keeping you from creating a business you love are the same things that are chewing up the time you could be spending on enjoyable activities.

Take these steps this week and discover that you actually DO have time for your business AND for having a life!

Speaking of time… there’s never been a better time to create a thriving 6-figure business and make the income and impact you’re here to make. In fact, YOUR impact is needed now more than ever.
