9 Quotes To Help You Stay In Faith As An Entrepreneur

Thi9 Quotes To Help You Stay In Faith As An Entrepreneur by Jill Celestes week’s marketing strategy is a little different.

No video, no blog post – but something else that I think you need to hear.

I am getting an intuitive hit that you may be struggling with staying in faith. Meaning, your faith in your purpose and business is wavering. You may be wondering if you’re cut out for entrepreneurship. You may even be thinking about throwing in the towel.

If you’re feeling off kilter, it’s normal. It happens to all of us – no matter where you are in your business.

Successful entrepreneurs are the ones who never quit, who pushed through and stayed in faith. That’s what you need to do too.

Like with anything in life (and business), it starts with your mindset. When your mindset is in the crapper, self-doubt creeps in – and that’s when you feel like shit about your business.

When my faith and self-belief are wavering, I like to be inspired, specifically through quotes penned by successful people. That’s why I have collected nine “stay in faith” quotes for this week’s marketing strategy.

My intention is that at least one of these quotes will resonate with you. I bet, though, that each one will help you in different ways.

We need entrepreneurs like you to not give up. To believe in yourself. To stay in faith. To shoulder through the rough patches. Our world is at an important crossroads, and it’s purpose-driven entrepreneurs, like you, who will help steer us in the right direction.

Stay in faith, dear entrepreneur. I am rooting for you. Let’s get you inspired with these nine quotes. Continue reading

There Are No Right Marketing Answers

There are no "right" marketing answers by Jill CelesteIf you’re like many entrepreneurs, you are constantly in search of the “right answers” to your marketing questions.

I get it: You want to make sure you are marketing correctly. You don’t want to waste your time or money. You want to get it right.

And as you search for the right answers, you waffle. You get “analysis paralysis.” And you wait for the perfect time to get done with whatever marketing you want to get done.

And you may even abandon whatever marketing question you have because you can’t get the answer soon enough, or you begin to doubt yourself, or something new and shiny comes along.

Does this sound familiar at all?

If so, please know you are normal, and that I can help you. Read and watch this week’s marketing strategy to learn why there aren’t really any “right marketing answers.”

Drink Coffee, Get Clients (Your Guide To Coffee Dates)

Drink coffee, get clients (your guide to coffee dates) by Jill CelesteCoffee dates (sometimes called one-to-ones) may be old-fashioned, but if you are looking for referrals and clients, going on coffee dates is a must do.

Some entrepreneurs shy away from coffee dates because they don’t know how to make it worth their time. Other entrepreneurs are not sure how to ask another business owner to join them for a coffee date.

If coffee dates are out of your comfort zone – or you’re not sure how to proceed – this is the marketing strategy for you.

I will share with you how to ask a potential referral source to join you on a coffee date, what to share on the coffee date, and what to do after the coffee date, so that you end up with referrals, and eventually, clients.

So, grab a cup of coffee – and let’s get started!

13 Ways To Improve Your Sales Process

13 Ways To Improve Your Sales Process by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comIf you’re anything like me, your sales process can always be improved upon.

Mastering authentic selling is a practice – not something you’ll achieve overnight.

It’s important to you look at how your sales process has gone, and identify the areas that are working well – and those that need improvement. Additionally, you may need to add elements to your sales process to perfect it even more.

To help you, I created a list of 13 ways you can improve your sales process.

IMPORTANT: You don’t have to implement everything you see here. Pick out the ones that resonate with you. Where I could, I included links to additional resources so you can learn more about that idea.

If you do implement something from this list, give it time to work. For example, adding your programs to your website will not immediately bring clients in droves. Be patient, observe, measure – and stay the course. You got this!
