Looking for tips on how to make more money in your flower business in 2022? You're in the right place!
For the longest time, I had this vague notion that "when the stars aligned" I'd finally be successful.
That concept is so disempowering.
It's like you gotta sit around and wait. And you talk yourself out of taking action a lot.
You spend heaps of time second-guessing everything, buying into the idea of "if it's meant to be" and you never step out of your comfort zone and try stuff.
But that line of thinking is so common in our society. And our industry.
That line of thinking is what stands in the way of your success. It's what's holding you back from creating the business you wanna create.
And, truth be told, it's the thing standing in the way of you figuring out how to make more money in your flower business in 2022.
Shift Your Perspective: How to Make More Money in Your Flower Business in 2022
Here's one of the best quotes I've heard from Mel Robbins recently:
Your dreams are your responsibility. No one is coming.
Seriously. No one is going to come to teach you all the things you need to know to grow that dream business of yours.
No one is going to do the work for you. That's up to you.
If you don't like the results of your business, take ownership of it and know you get to fix it. You don't need someone to come in and do that for you. You have what it takes to make it work. (How do I know? You're here reading this.)
Inside Flower Boss Academy, I refer to this concept as Owning Your Outcomes.
And yes, it feels a little uncomfortable at first. It's not something we're used to doing.
No doubt, if you're anything like me and you have a very well practised inner critic, when you first learn this idea, you're gonna wanna judge and shame yourself a lot.
That's not the point of this shift in perspective.
This is about seeing how much power you have and how much authority you have over your life, your business and your actions.
You don't need to wait for someone to give you permission.
You don't need approval from your boss.
You gotta give yourself the official go-ahead, step outside your comfort zone and know that you'll have your own back no matter what the outcome is.
This my friend is the practice of Owning Your Outcomes. And it's one of the six essential skills every floral designer needs to cultivate to become a Flower Boss.
At the end of the day, when it comes to learning how to make more money in your flower business in 2022, it's time to see how much you've been standing in your own way.
The magic of this whole situation? If you're the one standing in your own way, you can do something about it and, quite literally, get you of your own way.
Again, this isn't about blaming yourself.
No one sits us down at any point in our lives and says "Ok, let's talk about how to own your outcomes."
Instead, we were all conditioned to believe someone needs to come along to rescue us (a.k.a. the media) or wait and give us permission (a.k.a. our educational system).
In reality though, none of that is helpful when it comes to you being able to take your business to the next level.
The best lesson of the day: reminding yourself you have a choice.
You can choose to wait for someone to come along and save the day. Or you can decide that you have what it takes to figure this out and you will learn how to make more money in your flower business in 2022.
