After my last few posts talked about how I’m adjusting to my new work schedule and full time entrepreneurship, a few conversations I’ve had make me wonder if we are clear on the difference between duty & privilege.
So many of us are buried under the weight of things we feel like we “have to” do. While overlooking the opportunities of things we are “blessed to be able” to do. Let me explain…
Duty is defined as a moral or legal obligation, a responsibility. Privilege is defined as a special right, or immunity granted to a particular group of people.
For example, people died in order to afford me the privilege to vote and get an education. It is my moral duty to take advantage of that privilege. Make sense? Cool..
As an entrepreneur you have a moral duty to get your ish together so that you can show up for the people you’re called to lead. You’re privileged to live in a time where you can do this primarily from home and you can design your business any way you like.
So now that we’re clear on the difference please understand your audience has no duty to buy from you.
I have conversations with women entrepreneurs weekly who feel some type of way if their offers meet crickets. Nobody is obligated to buy from you hun. Just because you show up on social media, have a nice website, or need to be freed from your full time gig, doesn’t mean people must buy from you.
Having clients is a privilege.
When you truly understand that, then you will keep going and stay focused.
So if you really want clients here is what you should focus on:
Before busting up on anybody’s timeline to sell anything make sure these 3 are your duties mmkay?
If any of these is nonexistent, or unclear I assure you the clients will be slow coming. So if you’re in business make sure you are clear on these first. Take some time today to answer this for your own business.
Until next time..
