What I Learned This Year in My Business: Take a Bold, Unapologetic Stand For What You Believe In

be-boldIn this special month of Incredible Factor TV, I am not taking questions.  Instead, I am sharing my top five lessons from 2014, a ground breaking year at Incredible One Enterprises – I’ve gone from 25 to 125 clients and no employees to five – yes, it’s been a year!

So for a quick review of my lessons in 2014:

1. Don’t just think big, plan big.
2. Build a team.
3. Stay consistent.
4. Always be a gift.

Now, for lesson number five…

When I first started my business in 2008, I had a business associate tell me that I needed to decrease the amount of references I made to my spirituality.  Disheartened, I took to one of my favorite activities: fasting and praying.  What I heard in my spirit was God saying, “people need to feel me but not everyone is ready to see me.”  Admittedly, I probably took this too far in the opposite direction.  For years, if you knew me, I mean really knew me, then you knew that I love God.  But I was so busy being politically correct that I lost myself and as a result I tussled in my business and didn’t feel the complete joy and peace that I should have.  I was trying to be all things to all people and I spent more time jumping on bandwagons than living my mission.

Check out this week’s episode of Incredible Factor TV to learn more about my fifth lesson of the year:

Now, don’t get me wrong, my business was steadily increasing but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it should be.  Then, in 2013 at an event, a received a prophetic word from a pastor and she said, “God told me to tell you that if you took a bold stand for Him, He’d make it easy for you.”

Excited about the answered prayer, I begin to relax a little into who I am and what makes me Incredible.  And I decided to get real clear about who I am and what I believe.  Now, it isn’t my place to convert anyone, but I am very clear that when I operate within my spiritual gifts, others experience transformation.  And this year was a complete example of how much easier it would become as I fully stepped into who I am and what my divine mandate is.

The fact is there’s no one who does what I do the way I do.  And as I hold fast to my beliefs and realize that I’m the best that ever did it, I give others the courage to make that bold declaration for themselves.  Trust me, being clear and taking a stand is much more fun in the business building process.

So my lesson to you:  Get clear about your values and don’t ever step away from them.  There are many people in the marketplace looking for someone who is bold in their beliefs to help them.

If you want to shift the trajectory of your business in 2015, stand on, by and in your core beliefs and make them the most important part of who you are and how you serve.

Your assignment:  Create your core values statement for your company.  Your statement should answer the following questions: Who are you, what do you believe and why is that relevant to the work you do?
