The dream, the struggle and the victory. Today’s post will go over what we believe are the five things that stop your business from growing. 

Quick note: We did a Live video on this in our Influencer + Network Marketer Community, so be sure you’re plugged in there!. 

Now, think about the businesses that attract you. What is it about them that screams check us out!? It might be their branding, colors, tagline, or even their sales on the surface. But let’s dig a little deeper. Because is it those things that will keep you going back? 

Probably not. 

So, when you apply this to your own business, what are;

  1. The things that will help your business grow? 
  2. The strategies or perspectives that will support the growth you’re after? 

A couple of these things might surprise you! 

And as always, we would love your thoughts in the comments below on what you have seen help your uphill trajectory. 


How many people have you told your story to? Do they know why you are building your business? Are they aware of the passion that runs deep and why your customers or clients matter to you? 

Every website you visit has a section called ‘About Us/Me’ (or other titles). You see this because businesses know that people want to be connected, and what better way to communicate than through your story!


Everybody starts somewhere. 

And we want to encourage you to keep this in mind when you’re playing that dangerous comparison game. Anyone who has an incredible success story, huge organizations or a client list to last them years — started where you are. 

Have you probably heard of the ten-year-overnight-success-story? This couldn’t be more true! The bottom line here is you need to be OK with it. Because getting stuck in that mindset of feeling discouraged or failing will stop your business from growing. 


How many people can I;

  1. impact today
  2. love on today
  3. inspire today
  4. help today

Refuse to allow people who haven’t treated you with this same mindset to stop you from doing good. When your goal isn’t people first and foremost, it will prevent your business from growing. However, after a couple of decades, we’ve been in this entrepreneurial space; we KNOW that when you breathe life into others, it comes back to you repeatedly! 


… maybe even multiple times. Here’s the deal we have invested a ton of money into bettering ourselves, right? Sound familiar? Well, we promise you we wasted a lot! But, we learned from those things that there is a lesson in everything. 

If you learn a new skill today, you won’t master it by tomorrow. It seems obvious enough, but sometimes we need those reminders. So the next time you purchase a program, course, coach, etc., get honest about it, be consistent with it and know that there will be learning curves. There will be moments of the execution falls flat, and there will be times you want to quit. 

Please don’t. 

Rest assured that this is something we all go through. Know that ebbs and flows exist in every business, and to know its true potential, you need to see it through. 

In all truth, this is probably one of the biggest reasons that stop your business from growing.


Have you ever heard someone say, ‘I didn’t get the same chance or break as …’

If there are people out there who had a bit of a head start, good on them, right? But here’s what we know, the best break is your hard work. 

You are creating the life you want, desire, need or otherwise. The power is inside you, and sometimes we need a friendly reminder. If you truly want success, you have to get out of your own way. 

The primary, if not the only, reason that stops your business from growing is you. 

Be it patience, belief, skills, or otherwise — they are all things you can acquire. And, we suggest that you do!
