There are a lot of entrepreneurs out there who love what they do, but aren't making any significant amount of money. I bet you one of the main reason for this because they are not clear about some aspect of their business. I've been there done that. It's easy to get caught up in everything that you are doing as an entrepreneur especially when you are doing a lot of things. I suffered with this for years. I didn't know which business card to take when I went out networking, because I did so many different things. Because of this it was hard for people to connect with me because they really did not know what I did. Hell I really didn't know what I did. I actually prayed to God for clarity, because I was starting to feel like I was losing my mind. So what did I do to help myself? I bought this book called The One Thing. It helped me get started in trying to define what business I wanted to be in. You see I have several different businesses, which there is nothing wrong with that, because most millionaires have at least 7 streams of income. The problem for me was that I was the only one trying to run all of them and because of this none of them were turning out the revenue that I know that they could. So I had to pick one to focus on for the current moment and boy was that a big struggle for me. My way of making that decision was that I looked at which one of my businesses gave me more joy and which one gave me more stress. All of my businesses are in the media space, but the one that gave me the most stress is my Internet TV company. The one I liked the most was my blogging. Podcast came in second, so I decided that I will do my podcast as well interviewing other ProfitPreneurs while writing about business and marketing on this blog. I love entrepreneurship and being creative and when I thought about what brought me the most joy it has everything to do with being and entrepreneur and helping other entrepreneurs. I decided to do a joint venture with my husband who wants to get into real estate, so I am working on a brand for that, but we will be partners, so I won't have to do everything by myself and this will be a very part-time business, because he still has a full time job that has a lot of overtime.
I hope that this help you get unstuck and clear about what you really love doing. Remember You Are Just One Big Idea Away From Making A Profit.
Until Next Time

Man time waits for no one. We are already past the first quarter of the year and I know about you, but I still feel like everything is not in order yet. I maybe just a little bit of a perfectionist. Anyway I wanted to share the formula that someone shared with me about crushing your goals over the next 90 days. I hope you're not a perfectionist like me, but if you are this formula may help you do big things in your business or your life over the next 90 days. The formula includes the following steps:
Ruthless Daily Debrief: Sit back at the end of the day and see what things got done and what things did not get done. You have to brutally honest with yourself when you do this. I'm in the process of studying to get my real estate license and I am doing the online course instead of going to the class which was a big mistake, because when I did my daily debrief for a couple of days I realized that I did not do any parts of the course, now I'm behind. I will make up the time, but if I had just stayed on plan I would be behind. I gotta tell you when you are brutally honest with yourself it doesn't feel good.
Singularity Of Focus: I must admit that this is a real problem for me, because I have this blog, I have the magazine and now I'm studying for my real estate license. In an effort to hit my goal in 90 days I've decided that I will set a time to work on my main goal which is to get my real estate license and sell my first home over the next 90 days. So on the weekend which is supposed to be my time, I will work on the next issue of Peach State Woman magazine and write on this blog.
So what I would like to do now is to invite you to take this 90 day journey with me. I've shared with you the formula that was shared with me. I going to implement into my life and my business. I hope you can see some value in it and implement into your life and your business.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
Audrey, The ProfitPreneur
So I was sitting in my room this morning watching a show called Follow The Leader. It's a great show that profiles business owners as the host follow them around for 48 hours. I love shows like this because I get so many ideas from them. Well anyway the first episode I watched she was following Gary Vee around. I love Gary Vee, so I had to watch this one. But the one that got me to thinking about what I could do to build Peach State Woman was the episode where she followed Katia Beauchamp who is the founder of BirchBox. I thought to myself wouldn't it be nice if I could give away a BirchBox subscription each month to one lucky winner who subscribes to our free newsletter, digital magazine or our print magazine. Then I remembered taking a look at this company called 31 Gifts and how much I love the things that they offered. So I said to myself, hey why don't I become a 31 Gifts consultant this way my monthly give away can be personalized for our one lucky lady. So that's exactly what I did. I joined 31 Gifts and now I'm a consultant as if I really needed another business to run. After I pushed submit to complete my enrollment into the company I thought to myself WTF Were You Thinking. To be honest I was thinking how this company with great products fit right into what I was doing with PSW. So, I believe that this is a marriage made in heaven and I look forward to giving away some great gifts.
If you want to see some of these amazing gifts check out my 31 Gift store at
www.PeachStateWoman.net. Yes I had to put the PSW brand in there somewhere. After all this is why I became a consultant.
Below is also a video about a few of the great products.
