When I was in corporate America there was one day I looked forward to no matter what day of the week it was and that day was payday! It didn’t matter if it was Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday if it was payday, it was a good day. It was a pretty simple formula, in exchange for me completing a certain set of tasks I’d received a paycheck a couple times a month. It seemed like the good life until I discovered I didn’t have to wait until “payday” to get paid.
The biggest mental trap business professionals face is the belief that they can’t make enough money in their business to leave and replace their corporate salary. The reality is that belief keeps you stuck in a cage that was designed and created by your own thoughts. The good news is that you hold the key to unlock the cage. I know this because that was my belief too.
When you realize that as an entrepreneur you have the ability to turn any day into a payday, the cage will no longer limit or hinder you. Your payday becomes any day your product or service is deemed the solution to a prospective client’s biggest challenge. This doesn’t mean that you wait for the phone to ring or someone to find you in an internet search. This simply means that you market your services so that your ideal client knows that you exist.
There’s one thing every business professional must get really comfortable doing if they’re going to replace their corporate salary and turn everyday into a payday and that is asking for the money. It’s easy to sit back and wait for payday knowing that your salary will be there on the designated date. But what if you didn’t have to wait until that designated date to get paid? What if everyday could be your payday?
