The Trap of Success
Publishing September 2016
Have you heard about The TRAP of SUCCESS? Yes, there is an aspect of success that will cause you to stop your growth. It is about the time in your business when you want to create something amazing and exciting…yet you stop yourself.
Having money to lose causes you to think differently about growth. Having market share to lose causes you to blend in with your peers. Having success stops you.
I call this THE TRAP OF SUCCESS.
Oh, boy, do I know the trap of success. About 10 years ago, my business was thriving. My success came in many forms: money, authority, and freedom.
And the desire to innovate a new approach to an old solution. I wanted to create something game-changing. I thought about it constantly. I talked about it…in fact, I obsessed over it.
And get the first 2 chapters now.
My Podcast is called…
Leaders in the Trenches
With over 200 interviews with game changers and visionaries for your pleasure, this podcast is for leaders leading leaders. Gene Hammett (that’s me) is the host and does a deep dive with thought leaders and experts to expand your awareness of leadership, marketing and sales.
Are YOU the biggest obstacle to your success?
Let me be more direct…Does your inner critic cause you doubt and fear?
Growing and innovating within your business is essential to continous transformation. Howeever, when you know WHAT to do and just aren’t doing it…you are your own worst enemy. Yes, calling your inner critic an asshole is quite strong.
And understanding that inner voice is the key to your success.
Gene is a big part of my success in my business and life. Gene challenged me to define a niche and once I did, I have never looked back. I have been able to become an authority in my industry, generate more revenue than ever before, and even get paid to speak internationally. I owe Gene a lot when it comes to picking a niche, which is the foundation of any business in the beginning.
“There was an immediate impact to our business. Our average project size increased by 310% in 100 days.”
“Real quick I was able to make a lot of positive changes. The rates more than doubled. I am doing the kinds of projects I want to take on. And they are going so much more smoothly. I am managing my clients instead of my clients managing me. Gene has been a game changer for my business.”
“The greatest value was the program helped me find my market and build that into a business. For me with a broad education and experience, it was a challenge to focus. The Elevation program took the guess work out by providing a step-by-step process to go through identification and validation to confirm my specific audience. Now I am absolutely clear that I help restaurants grow with an integrated digital strategy.”
