In the 6th installment of M-School, my magic school for entrepreneurs, we tie everything together with numbers and common sense and use calculators and projections to do practical work! (Here are episodes one, two, three, four, and five in case you want to catch up.)
THERE IS NOTHING MAGIC ABOUT THIS PROCESS.
It’s simple, straightforward math. The magic comes in learning to let out your meows via marketing, in learning how and when to sell through the practice of moguling, and in learning to be paid for bringing your magic to light. But this? This is just math.
Odds are that you avoid this straightforward stuff like the plague, especially if you deem your numbers paltry or you’re just starting out and so you’re looking at seemingly endless rows of expenses and a big fat $0 in the income department.
Facing up to that big fat $0 is the first step. Instead of trying to knock it out of the park overnight, let’s break it down into a smaller step.
What would get you 20% closer to your enough goal? (Hint: you made an ‘enough’ number in episode three, which lives here.) If you want to make $5,000 a month and you’re currently at $0, what would make you $1,000 a month? That’s the next step to take.
This math-ing process is about making peace with your income streams. Maybe you’ve got a product in your business, maybe you’ve got a service. Maybe you’ve got two products. The more products and services you have, the more combinations you can make to get to that enough number.
It starts with one. One income stream, one step.
You have something to offer, so you offer it. The rest of this episode will show you how.
P.S. Stay on it. (That’s what she said.)
