I know how frustrating it can be when business isn’t as successful as you’d like it to be despite the blood, sweat and tears you’ve invested.
So, if your dotcom dream has started to fizzle instead of take flight here are 3 simple ways to kick your success into high gear!
1. Be there.
If you’ve been feeling invisible in your business it’s probably because – you are. Ouch.
So let’s check in. How often are you communicating with your tribe, your list, your peeps?
And when you do “communicate”, are you adding value? Engaging? Sparking conversation? Or are you simply broadcasting?
Talk WITH your tribe not at them and do it more often in a value-add way so they couldn’t forget about you if they tried!
ACTION TIP: Put a note together right now. What question can you ask them that will get them talking? What can you give them that they’ll be thrilled to receive from you? Send it through email, post it to your Facebook business page, tweet it on Twitter. .
2. Be Bold(er).
You’re great at what you do but you’re a best-kept secret. One of the fastest ways to get your business groove back is to become mover visible to your target audience.
And in an online environment one of the quickest ways to invisible-proof your business is to share what you really stand for. Activate your awesome and claim your unique approach to your niche’s hot topics.
Don’t be afraid of turning someone off. You will – whether you stay generic and vanilla or not. The good news is when you get bolder with your message; you become 10 times more visible to your target audience. Trust me on this.
“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” ~ Bill Cosby.
A great way to tune in to a bolder voice is to think about what ticks you off right now in your industry. Use it to light a fire and spark a new conversation with your tribe. They’ll sit up and take notice.
ACTION TIP: Write a blog post or article that reveals something that ticks you off and your unique approach to the same conversation. Give your tribe insight into brand-YOU! .
The only way your to do’s will graduate to your ta da it’s done list is through action.
Our lives are busy. There’s no way around it and the likelihood that it’s going to magically ease up is slim. Bottom line: You can’t “make” time. We all have 24 hours in a day. What you need to do is “take” time to grow your business.
ACTION TIP: Schedule an appointment with yourself – and keep it! Think of you, the success of your business like your #1 client. Would you cancel on, and keep putting off, your best client?
And just think how great you’ll feel when you get some of your to do’s DONE! .
The life and business you dream about is on the other side of your to do list! So let’s get it done!
Now… before you go, we’d love to know which piece of advice are you going to activate first? Declare it in the comments to keep yourself accountable AND so we can cheer you on!

Great post, Gina. My favorite tip is “Do!” — I too often neglect the creative time and re-energize time that I need to stay on top of my game. I’m scheduling an appointment with myself today. 🙂
If I had to pick my fav Gina, it would be … all! Holy cow, reality check right at the get-go – love it.
My action commitment is to be-bolder … been laying low, hiding out these past months. I say no more.
As always Gina, you give great advice.

Well Gina, I love your tips!
I think we often need to reboot, and the best way is through simplicity and ACTION!
You put that right on the table here.
Your action tips are wonderful, and they will help any business owner, new or seasoned, to get out of the funk and feelin’ like a hunk…out of the crud and feelin’ like a stud.
I actually just did action #2 on a FB post yesterday and for the last few weeks actually).
I’ve been posting my “Soap Box Discussions”, and getting peeps into the conversation and sharing their opinions. It’s been pretty fun and you get a lot of comments this way.
Thanks for your super hip wisdom lady!
Love and Hugs!
I love your concept…and It’s my time to shine! I want to take my business to the stars…
