Ep. 224 – Why When You Begin To Make More As A Business Owner You Step Into A New Position Of Power

Alexis Fedor

Why Stepping Away From Your Business This Time Of Year Is CounterproductiveWhat is your internal temperature when receiving revenue?

This is such an important question that we’ve been going over the last couple of weeks. The reason it is important for artists to begin to make 6-figures as a business is because when you make that amount in your business the business can then afford to pay you a salary.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s the rub…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The big issue that almost every single person runs into, myself included, is that when you start to make more as a business owner you step into a new position of power within ourselves. A new form of internal leadership is gained, a self-empowerment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In order to take that step, we are inevitably faced with challenges that we’ve never really looked at before. That we never thought would be an issue before. The one that I am referring to here is when you start to make that 6-figures as an artist in business.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now the question I posed last week was is it harder to make 6-figures? Or is it harder to internally accept and receive the 6-figures revenue that comes into your business and know that you’ve gotten yourself to that next level?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
9 times out of 10 it’s the later that is harder!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stepping into your power and being able to receive that revenue will jar your nervous system like nothing before.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last week I talked about how when I made my first 6-figures I immediately invested $34,000 into a coach. That was the wrong decision for me to make at that time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why did I immediately invest that $34,000? That is the most important thing to look at because it gave me the perfect opportunity to grow because I did it for a very specific reason.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have the most charged energy around money because it is an energy in our lives and we have to deal with it every single day. So we have relationships to it that are so personal to us that will start to come out when you start to break past what your nervous system is use to making.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I want to share is that as an artist in business in this day and age It is important to make high 5 or 6-figures in revenue. You then need to pay yourself from that revenue because that is how you can create longevity, consistency and predictability in your business with your art.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I invite you to embrace that idea!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Allow your resistances on this idea to come up but now take your first action step in setting yourself up to make enough that is just outside of your comfort zone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s how you want to do that, create a good, better, best scenario.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To create this scenario just take the number you came up with from last week about how much you envision yourself making as an artist to feel like you could have a sustainable business. Take that number and put that down as your best then work backward to come up with a better and a good. Your good should just be outside of your comfort zone.
