Today I want to talk about the desire to make an impact. As entrepreneurs or career professionals, most times, us starting that business or venturing into that career is to be able to make a positive impact whilst making an income.
As a passionate multifaceted entrepreneur who started a business to make a difference in my community and the world. I had a vision to empower entrepreneurs, create jobs, solve real problems, and leave a lasting legacy. However, at the beginning of my business, as time went on, I found myelf stuck in the daily grind, struggling to scale and make the impact I desired.
One day, I realised that my desire for impact was being held back by my own limiting beliefs, fear of failure, and lack of strategic planning. I decided to take a step back, reassess my approach, and seek guidance from mentors and peers.
With newfound clarity and purpose, I refocused my business strategy, built a stronger team, and leveraged innovative marketing techniques. I began to collaborate with other entrepreneurs, share my story, and learned from different experiences. This is what we’ve been doing till date.
So today, I am sharing my tips to guide you on your mission of making an impact whilst making an income.
1. Clearly define your purpose and the impact you want to make. Know your why.
2. Challenge negative self-talk and embrace a growth mindset.
3. Develop a roadmap for scaling and achieving your vision.
4. Surround yourself with people who share your passion and values.
5. Share your journey, learn from others, and build a community. That’s why the ELOY Foundation Network, the Rule Your Mind group and Exquisite Club was created.
6. Be open to innovation, learning, and pivoting when necessary. In my case, Exquisite Magazine becoming a digital magazine plus other innovative ideas.
7. Address real problems and create value for your customers. Be solution focused.
8. Build relationships with fellow entrepreneurs and industry experts. I advocate for collaboration not competition.
9. Learn from setbacks and use them as opportunities for growth.
10. Keep your vision and impact at the forefront of your decisions.
Remember, making a meaningful impact takes time, effort, and perseverance. By following these tips and staying focused on your purpose, you can overcome obstacles and achieve your dreams.
