Where to Put Your Focus the 1st Year in Business with Amanda Boleyn
The first year in business can be some of the most challenging and very rewarding times. Your business is something new that you now need to take care of.
What is it like during your first year and what to expect?
What to avoid doing during the first year (especially)
What to actually focus on during the first year in business.
Letting go of comparing yourself by how many years you’ve been in business and how “far along” you think you should be.
I remember years ago when I first started out someone said to me, “Amanda, building a business is the long game. If you’re not going to commit to the next 5 years building your business, you may want to do something different now.” I remember being so naive about this statement thinking that, “Yeah. There’s no way it will take me that long. I’m going to easily knock this out in a year and it is going to be exactly the way I want it to be.”
Today’s episode is all about where to put your focus in the 1st year of business because if your attitude and mindset about what it takes to build a sustainable and successful business aren’t on the right track from the start, it could potentially derail you and lead you down a very hard and difficult path. And potentially land you back in Corporate America...and friend, no one wants that.
Two things I really want you to take away from today’s episode are:1. Where your focus goes, energy flows, results will show.
2. What you persist, resists. What you resist, persists.
We’re diving into where to put your energy the first year in business and what to focus on.
Every day we get to decide where we put our focus and energy. The first year of business is a roller coaster of emotions, outcomes, expectations, and more. Because the first year is such a rollercoaster, I recommend focusing on the journey along the way and what you learn, rather than putting so much energy towards the outcomes.
You might be thinking or asking yourself, “Okay Amanda but aren’t I supposed to focus on making money, that’s an outcome right?” And to that, I say, “Yes! And…”
Based on many conversations with entrepreneurs, clients, and personal experience, I always recommend building and validating your business as much as you can while working a full-time job. Because I’ve seen many many times before where you may be in a job you don’t love, you’re emotionally drained and so overwhelmed.
You might be thinking, “If I just had more time. That would fix my problem and I’d be able to build my business.” And while you’re not wrong that yes, in order to build a business you do need time but time alone isn’t going to build your business. It is the constant persistence of not giving up, not pivoting, not retreating that builds a business.
When you quit your job without validating your business and making zero income, your focus then becomes about making money to support yourself, to contribute to your family and when you’re not doing that, your thoughts can spiral.
If you do quit your job but aren’t making money in your business, I highly recommend finding contract work to bring in some sort of income even if it has nothing to do with the business you are building.
For example, let’s say you went through a life coach certification program and you’re ready to enter the world of life coaching. You open up doors and invite people in to work with you and then there are crickets. Clients aren’t knocking down your door but you’re thinking, wait a second, “I’ve got this certification why isn’t anyone signing up?”
Because you’re not making money in your coaching business (just yet because you still need to create content, build an audience, sales funnel, opt-in...all that stuff), your focus starts to look for the lack...lack of clients, lack of money...so your energy starts to feel needy and desperate because you find y

Valuable, fun to listen to, validating.
In a time when the Internet is constantly yelling at us with “shoulds” about how to build a business, I love Amanda’s emphasis on practical ways women can do business OUR way. It’s so reassuring and validating to have this resource for how to strategically build a successful business. The conversations Amanda’s hosting about systems (which I ignored for too long!), authentic marketing (so important and appealing), and mindset (which is always a work in progress and needs reminders) are so important.
