How Bad do you want It?

How bad do you want it?  

IT could be more clients, more cash, more profits,  a new car, a new house any aspiration you desire to achieve in the future but seems distant and difficult to reach …we all have something we want to achieve BADLY, and there is nothing wrong with that. Human beings are created WANTERS. We are created to desire more, aspire for more and that is why the good book says the path of the just is like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter…..so you were created to aspire for more, for better, for greater and when you do, count yourself NORMAL!

The problem is sometimes we squelch that desire for WANTING MORE because we have been conditioned to think if you want more you are greedy and you are bad person. So lets straighten that out right now, what do you want more of and why? There is nothing wrong with desiring to achieve more especially if it is for your benefit and that of others. So go ahead, aspire for more and achieve more so that we can change the world together.

Founder Mary (not her real name) recently visited our offices with a desire to make money consistently and profit for her 7 year old corporate training business. She loves and enjoys training but her problem was corporate training generates good revenue but the requests are inconsistent and the clients take 90-120 days to pay causing cash flow constraints. In short she was experiencing feast and famine and wanted to thrive. She took a Profit Accelerator Assessment and scored below 3 out of 10 meaning her marketing strategy was inconsistent with her profit projections. Using our Conversion Equation Evaluator we used a combination of 3 out of 8 marketing interventions from our Profit Accelerator toolkit and designed an online training for her to give her additional income. From that one intervention in two weeks Mary got 421 clients each paying 2k and has sold the same online training program 2 more times to live audiences and continue to enjoy PROFIT!!. Did I tell you Mary had never gotten more than 35 clients paying 2-3k before from her open programs? This is just one example of how the Profit Accelerator Mentorship can help any business to kick start their profits no matter how long they have been in running their business. The only requirement is A DESIRE TO GENERATE MORE INCOME TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS. With the Profit Accelerator Assessment you are able to see what is not working in your business and get a prescription of what you need to do to generate cash flow and start enjoying profits!

Why you need Partnerships

Being a Founder has its share of challenges and celebrations and you have no business walking alone, that is why we started Founders Day, a day where you can join a conversation with other Founders for insights and strategies to create the life and work you absolutely enjoy!

Listen in to Founders Day –  August 30th, 2018 for 10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED PARTNERSHIPS. (NB: This is a full recording of Founders Day Live at our office, be patient with us as we straighten the kinks!)

A partner is a friend, family member, colleague or peer who is willing to support your dream no strings attached.  O yeah there is that partner investor type person, but as a Founder we invite you to open your mind and think out of the box and enjoy creating a life and work you enjoy.  When we talk about WORK at PassionProfit it is whatever you do to generate an income to fund the lifestyle you enjoy.

Have fun and remember to join us on Thursdays at 8:30am-9:30am EAT from the comfort of your device! EVENT IS FREE AND YOU CAN REGISTER HERE

Profitable Partnerships

We are privileged to partner with Barclays Bank Business Club to provide mentoring and coaching services to their members. How timely that it came in our month of Profitable Partnerships.

As a Founder walking with others is not an option if you desire MEGA success.  Walking with the “right” others can catapult you into your dreams and desires faster and more comfortably.

A partner is someone or an institution that shares your values and complements your mission.  Partnerships are very much like marriages where one  articulates what they are looking for to support their success and aligns with another who has complementing qualities.

As an organization that seeks to provide access to capital to its community, we partner with financial institutions that are able to complete that piece of the puzzle on our behalf and we are able to provide capacity building for their communities and thus profitable partnerships are formed.

To be a profitable partner, you need to articulate your vision, values and mission so that you can find people and institutions that complement yours. Manage your expectations by expressing what you want and ask questions instead of making assumptions.  Consistent communication is critical for the success of any partnership.

Willingness to adapt and adjust as the two partners get to know each other and experience working together is also crucial.  Both parties should be willing to make it work for the partnership to work.  No part should bully another because of resources or size as each party is important in the success of the entire partnership and delivery of services.

Perfect partners do not exist, perfect conditions exist for a limited time in which partnerships express themselves best. — Wayne Rooney

How to Stay on the Winning Track

As we start the last stretch of January, I trust you are keeping well and still energized to make this year a WINNING year.
You decision will determine your action steps and eventually your outcome.
Some ways to stay on track…
  1. Surround yourself with people who have similar aspirations that you can support and can support you in achieving your goals. Don’t expect this support from people without discussing and agreeing on parameters of engagement.
  2.  Read books, articles and listen to content that will enlighten you towards achieving your goals. Intentionally set time aside to read and apply what you are learning.
  3. Join a network.  One activity I wish I engaged more in as I grew up is networking. Networking is not exchanging business cards at every opportunity. In actual fact I am very stingy with mine. Networking is cultivating relationships. It is work. It  requires you defining what you want to achieve and then aligning your networking activities with that goal. For instance if you desire to start your own business, find networking events where business owners go and choose who to cultivate relationships with.
  4.  Get some R & R.  Working everyday of the week will not get you to achieve your goals faster.  It might even slow you down as your mental capacity will be diminished. Carve out time for rest and restoration. What do you enjoy doing besides work?  Spend time with friends doing non-business related activities. it will help you have new and fresh perspectives.
  5.  Finally Commit your works to the Lord so shall your plans succeed.
This year God will elevate you beyond your wildest imaginations.
In His Service,
Frida Owinga
