Business Growth for Small Business Owners Requires Internal Alignment

Monday, 9th May 2011

Are you experiencing too many pressures at once? Do you have a gnawing, sickening feeling that if you just had a little more confidence you could make better strategic choices, manage your stress better, and could attract more customers authentically?

Failure to step up and start addressing some of these concerns can stunt your business growth immediately. You’ll start noticing a spiraling affect backward, not forward! Business growth will never remain consistent if you don’t pay attention to nurturing and aligning your inner self. That’s because your business success or failure is ultimately dependent on how aligned you are from the inside out.

The fastest and best way to become aligned within yourself and have the confidence to take your business to the next level is to hire an experienced life and business coach. This person should be a trained professional who doesn’t sit back and tell you what to do, but dive in from a place of inquisitiveness and intuition. The first steps should attempt to discover your strengths, check any blocks that are holding you back, and decide what action steps will help you step forward with confidence – without any hesitation.

Finding a coach that believes in you, your mission, and your purpose – more than you believe in yourself — has a powerful affect that can literally transform your job and your business performance over night. It doesn’t require guilt, shame, or doing a bunch of stuff you hate to do. It does require your willingness to explore and be coached.

I have seen business owners increase their sales by 200% in less than two months once they plugged into their confidence and focused on a deeper level than they had ever done before. I have also seen sales reps work 30% less and make more money in a few months of deep level focus. I have also seen marriages improve, headaches decrease, and a rebirth of business excitement and passion.

Is it time for you to step it up, and propel into greater business success? If so, make sure you are aligned with your core values, beliefs, and strengths. What are your core values and beliefs and strengths? Love to hear. Please comment below.

  1. I’m finding that my core values of following Spirit, ethical business practices, and doing what I love are still in place, always have been. However, as I move into the next chapter of my life, working from my intentions, listening to my heart is a new area for me, whereas, my corporate career was working from my ambitions and listening to my “brilliant mind”, or as my coach says moving from driving and striving. I do want to step it up in a new way. Thanks for your post.

    Dear Lisa,
    Great site and great post. I just wanted to say thanks for using my flickr/creative commons photo in your post. As it is noted below my photo on flickr, I require attribution in the form of a link to my site: (versus a link back to flickr) if you use my images. I would really appreciate it if you would make the correction.
