Day 3: What drives you to bring your best to your brand and business?

Just two days ago here in the U.S., we celebrated the 4th of July. That means fireworks, great cookouts, and tons of Facebook postings showing up in your stream from your friends about freedom 🙂 Gotta love it!

But to me the 4th represented something else that I teach my clients about daily: motivation.  Because in order to be a Brand in Demand, it has to start with one question: What is you big why?

What is it that drives you? That motivates you? That pushes you when the clients aren’t as abundant, the bills have come, or your marketing efforts don’t seem to be working?

What keeps you going when there seems to be so much “evidence” that you should just give up?

You answer matters!

Whatever drives you will help you push past negativity, fears, stress, and less than desirable circumstances like nothing else.  The road to a solid brand and business can be bumpy and having clarity on your “why” creates reserves that you’ll put to use as you grow.  Your “why” is also what will attract to people to your brand.

Your answer is so critical that I want you to write it out and post it somewhere where you can see it every single day.  Let it fuel you when you get too tired to write another blog post or get dressed up to head out to another networking event.  Let it remind you that you are so capable. That you are so incredible. And that there are so many out there just waiting to discover you and work with you.

Watch this…I dare you not to cry!

If you need any inspiration, just watch one of my favorite YouTube videos below. It is from the movie, “Facing the Giant.” Have a box of Kleenex nearby. You’ll need it! 🙂

Comment below and let me know:

What is your motivation in your business?

    Wonderful post! For years I floundered with businesses and ideas I had until I fully understood the importance of my Why. It’s more than making money or being a success. I think it has be a deep in your soul reason that is part of your life purpose. I found mine: to inspire, encourage and help others to be who they were created to be so they can succeed in their dreams and make this world a better place.

      Katharine, you are absolutely right. Usually those that say they want more money only need to ask, “Why? What would I do with that money?” to begin to understand their “Big Why.” Sometimes the process takes longer for most because they just never sat down to really think about their business like this. But when they do, that’s when the magic happens and they are on their way to becoming a Brand in Demand!
