How Hiring an Expert Saved My Back and My Sanity
Last Saturday, my husband and I purchased some furniture from my sister. She has exquisite taste in all things decorating and had decided to buy a new couch to go with their newly renovated house. The “old” couch that we purchased from her was a very nice, only 2 years old, high-end leather couch and we were excited to have it and upgrade our living space.
Fast forward several hours into late Saturday evening…I had pulled a muscle in my back. ALL the doors had been removed as we tried several different ways to get the couch in, but couldn’t. I painfully watched my husband and daughters try every which way to the point of exhaustion (I couldn’t help anymore because of my back). Around midnight, we declared that it wasn’t going to work and decided to call it a night.
After sleeping on it, and gaining our sanity again, we decided to hire a professional. I reached out to my friends who I knew could put me in touch with the right people. We needed an expert.
What’s interesting is that the first couple of movers I called asked for pictures, and measurements, but they didn’t think it could be done. The back of the new couch was too high and wouldn’t fit. They had zero confidence in their ability.
However, one of the movers I talked to was different. I explained the obstacles, and they KNEW they could do it. There was no doubt whatsoever. They had tons of experience with maneuvering things and thinking outside the box.
To my amazement, and delighted surprise, they had that couch in the exact room I wanted it within 10 minutes of arriving. They took measurements and knew exactly what to do. They used a different entry, a smaller one in fact, and got it right in. They operated at an expert level.
THIS is the power of using an expert.
What is it costing you to go it alone?
Is it taking you longer than you expected to reach the level of success that you know you were meant to achieve?
How much faster would you get to the level you wanted if YOU hired an expert?
A while back, I worked with a successful business owner who was struggling to get to the next level in one of his businesses. He was inconsistent, had trouble staying focused, and didn’t know how to fix it.
As it turned out, he had a BIG problem in his personal life that he thought he had resolved in counseling. He didn’t. It was affecting his perception of himself, his behavior, decisions, and ultimately his business and his relationships.
After our 4 hour session, he immediately took action and started seeing results. He was no longer making decisions subconsciously based on his past. Later, he let me know that he created another business that was on track to do over $1 million in a year.
Another client for the first time in a VERY long time responded in a different way to a problem that she has been dealing with ever since she can remember. She said that she can see how my Rapid Results program will radically shift her entire life.
The main difference between figuring things out on your own and what I do is that I KNOW what to look for, I can see things that you may not see, just like that mover knew exactly how to get that couch into our house.
What are results like that worth?
Being stuck in our business or struggling in relationships can stop us from reaching higher levels of success. It’s all connected. When we are frustrated with our personal life it affects our business. When we are struggling or stressed in our business it affects our personal life.
What are you willing to sacrifice?
What business opportunities?
I get it. I was once that person. I had success, but not at the level that I really wanted. I struggled in my relationships, which also affected my ability to succeed in my business. I didn’t know how to fix it.
I wanted help, so I consumed a lot of different things that I thought would help me. I read books, went to seminars, listened to podcasts, did affirmations, and it all helped a little, but it didn’t fix my problem. I purchased an endless amount of new programs that promised big things for my business, but none of them really worked. All of these different things were only a bandaid and I needed an expert to see the roadblocks (and remove them) that I couldn’t see.
I spent thousands of dollars and years in training. I have streamlined my process to identify the problem, get to the cause, and fix it by pulling it out by its roots so that it doesn’t keep happening, all in 4 hours or less. I wish that I would have known then what I know now. That hiring an expert would have massively leaped me forward both in my relationships and my business.
Successful people understand that investing in yourself and your business buys speed. It gets you results faster. It gets that couch in the door.
By the way, if you are in need of an expert mover, I can’t say enough good things about Box Truck Moving.
