From franchise owner, to corporate project manager, to CEO of Samphillco and COO to 6 & 7 figure entrepreneurs.
When I started my business, I was searching for a way to create some freedoms that corporate life kept me from.
I struggled in the beginning. It was months before my first client came to me.
Once I got my first client, it was smooth and easy from there - the business started picking up like wildfire and I had to start hiring team members because I was still balancing work and the business.
I made mistakes and grew to quickly. I didn't know what I was doing and took on far too much responsibility that led to a few unhappy clients, extreme stress from work, all nighters, and poor health.
When I realized things just weren't working, I decided to switch things up. Take on less clients, grow more slowly and naturally with a team.
From there it scaled to a sustainable space with clients who have been with us for almost a year+ and new inquiries.
For entrepreneurs that run a service based business, this is one of the hardest things to achieve - especially if we are still the main talent. Even if we have a team, being a manager of that team, the visionary, the ceo - it takes WORK and time as a service provider. Taking this into account when you build a service based business model is the key to being able to build a business that actually serve you instead of the other way around.
