How to Work Smarter, Not Harder in your Holistic Business

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to do it all as a holistic practitioner and biz owner? Wearing so many hats can be exhausting….that is, if you don’t have a leveraged business.

Having a leveraged business means you get to focus more time on what you love doing and less time on what you don’t love doing. You work smarter, not harder. And it’s as simple as identifying where your skills will be best put to use in your business and taking action from there.

There’s lots of ways to create leverage in your business, but first you must decide what you want to leverage exactly. Consider which of the following you can leverage right now:

Your Time
Your Money
Your Knowledge
Your Resources
Your Talents
Your Contacts

Keep in mind, you can also leverage other’s people’s time, money, knowledge, etc. As a coach or practitioner, you might choose to leverage your knowledge so you can take all that you have learned and share it with people in a big way. You can share your message and create leverage at the same time. By leveraging your knowledge, there’s many ways to create success in your business. Here are just a few ways to get started in leveraging your knowledge:

Work With Groups
-Virtual (online or phone) is best
-Teaching the same thing to everyone
-Same amount of time for you, more profit
-Easier investment for clients

Record Your Work

Create information products like:
-Home study, do-it-yourself programs
-CDS and or ebooks
-Video trainings

Teach Others

-Provide them your tools and training
-License your materials
-Teach others to do what you do

Host Live Events

-Public speaking

The main thing is focusing on one way to create leverage first, rather than thinking you have to do it all at once. That won’t make it go any faster! Choose what you do best and then hire a coach or join a like-minded community to support you so you don’t spend time reinventing the wheel. Leverage is also about making decisions and taking action right away, so don’t delay in getting started if you want to create a leveraged holistic business.
