    Know Your Numbers to Get More Done

    in Business

    in business you have to know your numbers. And who's better at numbers than the US Census Bureau?

    Still you ask - what does this have to do with your business?

    Well, first understand that you're not alone. Lots of other people have their own businesses too. All shapes and sizes. Loads and loads of them.

    If you look at the data that the Census provides - and I don't care if you're in the U.S., or not, this info applies - you'll see some startling info:

    There are 22,491,080 Solopreneurs in the US.
    They average 70 hours a week working.

    So what do they get from all that effort?

    They average $45,687.79 in annual revenue…

    90% make less than $100,000 per year.

    Stunned? Shocked? Crying out loud? It's ok, I can totally relate.

    Businesses that have between 1 and 20 employees (there are 5,217,507 of them in the US) average 180 hours of work done per week.

    Yes, that's right - not much more than double the hours the Solopreneur puts in.

    And the kicker?

    These businesses average $457,205.35 in annual revenue.

    Because business today requires more than one person - and more than that, the MORE people you can tap into, the better off you are.

    Want proof?

    The companies that have over 20 employees (2,179,121 of them) average a whopping over $13 million annually.

    So the more people you can tap into on a cost effective basis, the better off your business is going to be.

    Self-Sabotage and the Solopreneur

    in Business

    Frequently as solopreneurs, the biggest threat to our success is ourselves. How can that be? Well, sabotage is an act or process that hampers or hurts, and self-sabotage is when we consciously or subconsciously thwart ourselves. Why do we do that, and how can we stop the destructive thoughts and behaviors? My guest, Jac McNeil, will help us answer those questions. Jac, the owner of Highland Coaching, is a certified coach and mentor who specializes in working with women solopreneurs. Her approach is about helping us break through our mental resistance, clutter, and stuckness, and she will help us do that in this show.
