I used to be in the business of chasing clients.
I did everything with one goal in mind: get people (it didn’t matter who) to hire me and fork over some money. I gave lots of free stuff with the expectation that people would buy from me.
Very few did.
Time went by and I grew disappointed and frustrated. I just
couldn’t figure out what was happening. I was usually so good at getting things done. Then my business coach rocked my world. She told me this, “You are not in the business of chasing clients.”
That’s when the lightbulb when on. My job wasn’t to convince people to buy from me. My job was to get out there, give people choices, and let them choose for themselves I didn’t need to pull clients to me, I needed to let clients come to me if they so choose.
I stopped chasing clients that day.
I’m now having more fun in my business than I have in years. I’m also helping way more people. That feels awesome.
The only way to manifest more clients is to stop chasing them and let them come to you.
Have you been chasing clients? Ready to stop?
Here are 3 things you must do if you want clients to do the chasing instead.
Be helpful without expectation.
Make a decision right now that you are no longer in the business of chasing clients. Write down, “No Chasing.” on a sticky note and stick it to your computer. That’s just not what you do anymore.
Instead go out and be helpful.
Avoiding doing it because you want people to hire you. Give from the heart.
Trust me, you’ll receive hundreds of heartfelt thanks!
I’m not saying let go of the need and desire to have paying clients. You need that desire in order to manifest it. What I am saying is stop deciding how that should happen. Tit for that just doesn’t work.
Become the Magnet
As an entrepreneur you have a magnetic ability.
As a magnet, you extend your energy outward into the universe. This energy then magnetized potential clients to you. The beauty of it is that it’s based on free will. As a magnet, you do not attempt to convince. As a magnet, you simply let people know who you are and how you can help them.
Your job as a magnet is to let people get to know, like, and trust you.
To do that you must create opportunities for people to get know, like, trust you. You need to create lots of these opportunities. And you must do so consistently. Remember it takes seven touch points before people know, like, and trust you enough to buy from you.
Answer this, “What do I want?”
In order for the universe to help you, you must know what you want. In order for you take action and to believe that things possible, you must first know what you want. In order to go out and become the magnet you are meant to be, you must first know who you want to attract.
Don’t believe me? Consider this example.
When I first thought Theta Healing (energy healing modality), I was super clear that I wanted to teach classes so that I could afford to take more Theta Healing classes. Within 8 months I had manifested 25K and 42 students. More than enough to cover the cost of the training.
As soon as the training was done, I stopped manifesting students.
It wasn’t for the lack of trying though. I was lucky to get one person for a weekend workshop. The people that I did manage to book mostly cancelled. As hard as this was, I wasn’t surprised. I knew was because I just didn’t know if I wanted to teach or not. The universe heard my confusion and kept my classes empty.
You must help the universe by knowing what you want. Start with the following questions:
- What do you want?
- Who do you want to work with?
- What problems do you solve for them?
- How do you solve it from them?
- How much tie do you want to spend working in a week?
- Do you really want to leave your day job?
If you don’t know what you want, that’s totally cool. Give yourself permission to start with baby steps. You don’t need to have it all figured out. What does your heart tell you? Listen to it, it will guide you.
Everything is possible, but you must first know what it is you want.
So I’ve just shared with you 3 things you must do if you want to stop chasing clients and have clients chase you. Go out and be helpful and become so magnetic that people can’t resist you. Before you do that all of that, don’t forget to clear on what you want.
