Getting Help In Your Business

You’re slamming the door on any hope of success if you DO NOT reach out for help. I really can’t imagine any business where any one person could do it all alone. If you’re an artist – chances are strong you need someone to help sell your work. If you’re a writer – you’re going to need an editor and a publisher – otherwise, you’re going to have a book that sells 100 copies.

Episode #687 October 25, 2019

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real-life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.

Questions:

Am I selling out if I give up and get help?

You have placed a really low ceiling on what you’ll be able to accomplish if you do it on your own.

There are about 25 things that need to be done at 48 Days, and I do only two or three of those well.
I link arms with people that are much smarter than I am.
Getting help in your business is not selling out, it means you’re smart.
As a member of 48 Days Eagles, getting help in your business is very easy. You can post anything in there and find others who will jump at the opportunity to help.
Just recently, Jeremy put a post in the Eagles community about an opportunity he has to buy a website and creatively flip the inventory that is associated with it.

You don’t just arbitrarily throw a price out there, you need to think about what would make sense with your audience. Who do you want to serve? How can you serve them well?

You need to be convinced that what you’re charging is worth it.

Focus on the relationships rather than the transaction.

How did that pastor move to a trainer position?

Here are a few of the companies that will be big players in this area and are looking for skilled facilitators.

I’ve heard you talk about a “business chaplain.” Is that a real thing?

It is one of the fastest-growing areas that I’ve seen in the last few years.

People are realizing that they hire the whole person and are having to address their physical and emotional well being.
It’s an example of how if you have your eyes open you’ll see new opportunities come available.
There are 1500 pastors leaving their churches a month. There are things like this they can move into.

I’m a veterinarian. How can I jump out of this boat that’s making me miserable?

Draw a line in the sand and decide today what it is that you really care about and already have some knowledge about where there is already a market for those things. A blend of passion, talent and money can walk you right into the next season of your life.
