Light bulb moment in business

by | Sep 12, 2020

In an instant—everything changed.

I was recently talking to my mentor, when it dawned on me. This wasn’t an option, it was a calling. An unshakeable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to share my passion for entrepreneurship with the world. I had no idea, in that moment, that my life would change forever. Or even more shockingly, just how much it would change…

Have you had one of THOSE moments?

Bam it hits you like a tonne of bricks…and from that moment forward the brain is dancing like its in the middle of a techno dance club and the beat is about 250 bpm – this is pretty fast

Then the mini light bulb moments start, even at night when you’re about to go to sleep, quick write that down, pick up your phone and send an email reminder for the morning…

I’ve even emailed myself at 3am with a light bulb sleep/dream moment for a layout of a web page!

So for me, it was time to teach the numbers. I’ve been working on them for years and coaching my clients through many business challenges, but I never thought about teaching anyone some secrets and short cuts I use.

Let’s face it, I just ‘get it done’ for my clients, I don’t blink, I don’t think, it’s often complete auto pilot to solve a problem or get that Xero bank reconciled as fast as possible.

So in this moment, speaking to my mentor and the days/weeks that followed was a complete new level of business, one I had seen in myself back when I opened my business for clients and doing their bookkeeping.

But here comes the kicker…

New tech – ahhhhhh – website plugin’s, email triggers, notifications, a whole new world.

And what does one do when they have not only the light bulb but this rush of energy to get it all done yesterday… YES, you guessed it, introduce a whole new website, all pages completely revamped and all new tools and toys to go with it.

But as you can see, the result is here, I made it!

There were 100% ‘throw my toys out of my cot’ moments and I remembers something I saw somewhere…
