I was reading one of Dan Kennedy’s newsletters the other day when they were talking about Gene Simmons talk at one of their past conferences.

And he asked the attendees, “who here runs a small business?”

Of course, a good percentage of people put up their hand.

And he went on to say that nobody in business should ever refer to themselves as a small business owner.

Because at the end of the day when you say “I am a small business owner” you are effectively limiting yourself and putting yourself into that hole.

Instead continually see your business as in transit from small business to big business.

After all, every business including Dell, HP, Microsoft and the like all
started out as a small business.

But they had a deep enough vision to see themselves as a big business and take the necessary action steps to get there.

And you and I need to do the same.

So next time someone asks you if you run a small business, say “I am moving towards running a big business.”

Or I am moving towards running a million dollar business. Or whatever your deepest goal actually is.

Please don’t underestimate the power of this kind of thinking.

Because the bottom line is…

If you see yourself as a $50,000 per year person, you’ll remain one.
If you see yourself as a $100,000 per year person, that’s where you’ll stay.
If you see yourself as a $300,000 per year person, you won’t go anywhere else.
If you see yourself as a seven figure person, that’s where you’ll end up.

So lift your vision. Stop seeing yourself as a small business.

And move towards the life you’ve always imagined.

I can remember once when I doubled my income. I was about 22 years old at the time and felt like I was a fraud.

I couldn’t believe they were paying me so much. I thought to myself “when am I going to be found out?”

Why did I feel this way?

Because at that time I couldn’t see myself as worthy of that.

Of course, now that’s all history and I see myself worth far, far more.

It hasn’t happened overnight.

But it has happened as a result of two things:

a. continually seeing myself as worth far more than my initial frame of

b. getting the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to get more customers – such as what you’ll learn at
