    039: How To Run Your Own Race In Business

    I’m sure by now you’ve heard people give you the advice to ‘put your blinders on and run your own race’...but in today’s show, I want to do a deeper dive into this topic.  
    I’ll share some signs to be on the lookout for that you’re going off course and how to self-correct.  I’ll also share a few strategies you can implement to make certain you keep your eyes on your own paper sort of speak in order to make the progress you want and need and get the results you set for yourself and your business.   Most of the information I cover in this episode relates specifically to things you may encounter while building or expanding your business online.
    Oh and today I have a little story to share with you of course...let’s get started
    Welcome to Episode #39 Of The Pursuit of Online Entrepreneurship
    A FEW SIGNS YOU’RE GOING OFF COURSE
     
    You check other people’s social media first thing You listen to multiple people with different training styles  Starting to feel anxious and overwhelmed Check yourself: are you easily influenced by others’ opinions Do other peoples #wins or #success stories make you feel bad about your own progress Do you compare yourself, the stage of your business to others who may be in a similar industry to yours?  
    If you have these tendencies, you’re likely to lose your voice, lose your focus, lose your direction and start wondering, floundering and veering off course which will
    Rob you of joy, fulfillment, accomplishment Sets you back both in progress but your mindset as well Keep you from making the necessary progress Generating the results you set out to when you set your goals HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO SELF CORRECT AND GET BACK ON TRACK (we go much deeper into each of the tips below in the actual episode) 
    Stop consuming other people’s content (we do a deeper dive into this tip in the episode) Stop looking at what other people are doing, what they’re working on and why If you’re not achieving the level of success you set out to, I’d like you to take a closer look at your own actions and determine if you need to self-correct to get back on course.
     
    RECAP: 
    What information triggers you Who triggers you and why What can you do to set yourself up for success Have more self-awareness and adopt better habits Be sure to tune in next week when I’ll have an update of what’s coming up with the Podcast and the business.

    037: 10 Business Tips For Success Every Online Entrepreneur Needs To Hear

    037: 10 Business Tips For Success Every Online Entrepreneur Needs To Hear

    “If I knew then what I know now”
    ...it’s always so much easier to look back and think that isn’t it?.
    Today’s episode is all about sharing some of my favorite and most relevant tips I wish I knew back in the day and I often share with others today.
    It’s easy to look back and think of all the things you could have or should have done differently or better.  But here’s the thing, we actually learn more when we make mistakes or when we run into challenges.
    We come up with ways to work through those tough times, we learn more about ourselves, what we’re capable of and we learn a ton that not only benefits us, and our business, but we can also be of greater service by sharing with our audience and our clients how to navigate these choppy waters of entrepreneurship.
    I have a long history of running businesses. My degree is in accounting and I spent 20 years in Corporate America as an accounting, finance and operations executive.  Specializing in helping start-up companies in Silicon Valley get started and prepare them for aggressive and massive growth.
    Besides that, I also started my own consulting practice back at the end of 2010  and my business was to be the CFO for hire for start-up companies, so I know a thing or two about starting, running and growing businesses of all sizes and at all different stages with different needs and challenges.  
    But even with all my experience, when I decided to expand into the online space, it required a lot of learning, testing, trying, failing and trying again.  This whole pursuit of online entrepreneurship has been one big, long and exciting lesson after another. It’s a ride, and I for one, love roller coasters, I hope you do too.
    Today I want to go over 10 business tips I believe you need to keep in mind, remember or know about in order to achieve success in the online space.   As you pursue online entrepreneurship you may feel like ‘been there, done that’, especially if you’ve started a successful business before.
    I ask that you keep an open mind and just hear me out as I go over my top 10 tips...the list could be longer, but we’ll just go over my top 10.  
    Ready? Ok, here we go...In this episode, we’ll go over
    10 BUSINESS TIPS FOR SUCCESS EVERY ONLINE ENTREPRENEUR NEEDS TO HEAR
    Get comfortable being uncomfortable with everything you don’t know Set it up right to start with - what am I talking about? Your business! Don’t create what YOU want, create what your audience wants & needs It will NEVER be the right time, ever, so START today You DON’T have competition, run your own race! It takes time to build a successful business, there are zero shortcuts. You get to build the business YOU want, it’s yours. Don’t run out of money, make a plan. You’ll need help, don’t try to do it alone. KEEP TAKING ACTION  
    Is this list familiar to you? Did you hear something new or remind you of a piece of advice you had forgotten?  I’d love to hear from you. Head on over to my website http://veronicasagastume.com/episode37 and tell me which of the 10 tips spoke to you the most at this time in your business?
