The Appearance of Success

Blog, Business, Money Mindset

In my world, there’s a difference between creating value and creating the appearance of success.

When you’re taking action for the appearance of success, you’ll spend your time on your website, your business cards, a beautiful home office, perfectly posed IG photos, and strategies to raise your likes, comments, and follows.

You’ll spend a lot of money on a lot of things that make you SEEM valuable.

But creating value is much less flashy. It doesn’t give you the dopamine hit of “appearing successful”.

It also looks like putting people and service first.

Not caring as much about how you look, as how you feel, and the way you are thinking.

Spending money on managing your mind, before spending money on upgrading your “brand”.

Working from wherever you can, and showing up whenever you can, to GIVE perspective and new nutrition concepts to everyone you meet.

Engaging with the two people who are following you. Instead of worrying and complaining that those two people aren’t enough.

Giving value is a lot less sexy. It’s not flashy at all. It requires a lot of work when no one is looking, without a lot of instant gratification. You may not “appear” successful.

But you will be, if you keep going.

However, when you build your business from the appearance of success, you’ll always have to spend a lot of money to make a lot of money. Your profits will be slim. You will look way richer than you are.

Hello, imposter syndrome.

But when you build with value, you’ll spend less money to make more money. You’ll understand where to put your money first and how to utilize it best. Your profits will be high. You’ll look way less rich than you actually are.

Look less rich, yet actually being richer.

Create more value.

Serve more people.

Do it without the website, business cards, and fancy IG graphics.

You’ll know those things were never the reason you made money.

And you’ll understand how powerful your brain is and the role it plays in your revenue growth.

You’ll have high-profit margins forever, my friend.

THIS is how you make more money as a dietitian.

What I’m sharing with you today is an example of the business growth & mindset work we do in my private coaching program. Maybe you’re curious about what that would look like for you?

Let’s connect and talk about your goals and how I can help you get there. Grab your free 30-minute consultation here.

The consult call is where I take the time to listen deeply to what your current situation looks like, what’s not working, where you want to be in your business, as well as your life, and help you map out a plan to get there.

If we’re the right fit for each other, we can also talk about what it would look like to work together.
