I love when things outside of our industry can inspire us. Today, I want to use farming to inspire you. Like the farmer, you are a seed planter. You till the ground, plant the seeds, fertilize and water them, and wait for the harvest.
One of my clients, who was amazing to work with, took one year before he committed to a coaching package. We talked off and on throughout the year and it appeared that he wanted coaching, but he just wasn’t ready to commit. I really wasn’t sure if he was ever going to become a client. However, just under the year mark he sent me the payment and the coaching began.
One time, a friend of mine that I once thought was a prospect that never turned into business invited me out to breakfast. At the end of breakfast, he wrote me a check for his first month of coaching. I was shocked. I really thought that I was just meeting my friend for breakfast and conversation like we had many times prior.
Here is where the life of the entrepreneur is different than the farmer. Sometimes the harvest takes us by surprise.
