Common excuses to avoid 

Do you ever find yourself wondering what your life would have been like if someone came along and gave some pointers on what to avoid in your career? Imagine getting access to that sort of insight that could help you avoid common mistakes and excuses! Thankfully, Scott has compiled a list of common excuses that sellers like you should avoid when it comes to your brand growth strategy. 

  1. I’m not an expert, why would anyone listen to me? You don’t have to be an expert, just invite people along for the ride and educate them along the way. 
  2. I don’t know how to use social media and navigate the technical aspects of the business. Learn about it and educate yourself or hire someone to do that for you!
  3. Don’t let perfectionism get in the way. 
  4. It’s going to take time, don’t get impatient! 
  5. I’m not a good writer; how can I write blog posts? Hire a writer or have someone transcribe your video. 
  6. I’m not good on video. That’s OK - just give it your best try! What do you have to lose? 

To learn more about Scott’s approach to rejecting these common excuses and how to get your business back on track, make sure to listen to this episode!
