EP 21: Amanda Silver – How To Stop Dwelling On Why It Can’t Work and Get Into the Driver’s Seat Of Your Business

Show Your Business Who's Boss

What happens when you realize that you don’t like what you offer anymore? Do you jump ship and try something new? Or does fear hold you back from making moves? More often than not, entrepreneurs get stuck in thinking that this offer is the only thing people will hire them for—and by leaving it behind, you’re leaving money on the table. But imagine for a second if all the parts of your business you loved could actually bring you MORE money, if only you could get creative in how to present and deliver it? Figuring out how to make it happen, instead of dwelling on why it can’t, is what it means to get in the driver's seat, and what it looks like to show your business who’s boss Today I’m chatting with a client who I’ve had the pleasure of coaching on and off for over a year now, and have excitedly watched her step into being the badass boss of her business, Amanda Silver. Amanda is a leadership consultant, coach and trainer for social change leaders and organizations, and she is passionate about creating thriving teams and cultures that get things done. Her unique approach focuses on heart and mind leadership and draws on expertise in mindfulness, emotional-intelligence, and strength-based mindsets. Tune into this episode to hear: When Amanda finally decided to shift away from a service that made the most money, to the service she really wanted to offer.. And ultimately how she made ˆ money doing it Amanda’s evolution from being at the mercy of referrals to getting in the driver's seat where she now confidently knows there is a steady flow of clients headed her way How Amanda finally embraced a boss-mindset with a long term view of her business and finances—one that celebrates and, for the first time ever, welcomes lulls between clients because she knows she NEEDS that time to support her business growth Learn more about Amanda Silver: amandasilver.com Connect with Amanda on LinkedIn Learn more about Pia: No BS Agency Owners Free Facebook Group The Show Your Business Who's Boss Crash Course Start reading the first chapter of my book Piasilva.com
