What Would Lorie Do?
I own 4 successful businesses for which I am the CEO of each. When I am about to take an action, I won’t ask myself, “What would I do?” Rather, I ask, “What would Jeff Bezos or Tony Robbins do? Both men are remarkably successful CEOs of a number of businesses.
When we make decisions from where we are, we always will be at that place. We cannot create new results without moving outside our comfort zone.
So many nurses are afraid to invest in themselves because the money is not there, this just means the money is not there now, but it is on its way. The only way to grow is to do something outside your comfort zone. Whether that would be investing in yourself, investing in software or supplies for your business or investing in a program, the money probably isn’t there or it is not a good time. Ask yourself, what would a CEO that you respect do? Would they delay something that would really help their business grow and provide a return on investment or would they wait until they had the money. It is important. Your business will not grow or at least not as fast without thinking like a CEO.
Tony Robbins’s mentor was the late Jim Rohn. I would encourage you to listen to any of Tony Robbin’s materials or, for that matter, that of Jim Rohn.
There are so many successful people in the world and there is a predictable pattern for success. Why reinvent the wheel and make it harder for yourself?
It took me 5 years to become successful with my legal nurse consulting practice. It was a long 5 years. I was reluctant to hire a mentor because I did not have the money since at that time, I was a single mom with 2 kids. However, once I finally took that leap and hired a mentor, my business growth was exponential. In fact, when I started my 2nd business with my law firm doing professional licensing defense, I was able to exceed my legal nurse consulting income within 9 months.
As nurses, we tend to sabotage ourselves because we are so busy giving to everyone else. However, you need to come first. This your life, no one else’s. This is all we have.
I wish I had back those first 5 years of my business because when your business does become successful, it leads to freedom and you have money to give back and help those less fortunate.
