Market your Business: Get out of the Office and out of your Comfort Zone!

As you read this blogpost are you safe, sitting in your comfortable office with your coffee and comforts close by? Have you been “outside” today to market your business? For that matter, have you been out of the office at all this week?

If this is you, you’re not unusual. Our offices are nice, safe environments where we can hibernate, read emails obsessively all day long, and remain comfortable. Comfort does not help you grow your business. It takes real courage to take a business to the next level and I’m pretty certain that not everyone has it in them to get there.

Even though I harp on taking risks, my most successful clients, the ones I’ve worked with for years that have hit the six and seven figure mark, tend to get lazy if I don’t push them to get out there. We are inherently lazy. It’s just human nature.

So my message today is if you don’t have someone like me pushing you and holding you accountable, make an appointment with yourself to get up off the couch and out of the office. Pick a few networking events you’ve never been to before. Get out. You’ll be glad you did.
