    Greetings thanks for taking the time to follow my brand consulting business execution.

    Along my journey I have picked up a few skills necessary in building a presentable business brand, Skills such as graphic design, videography, Web design, Content creation, and more recently digital marketing. I leveraged each of these skills to assist various business ventures and businesses. None of these ventures took off or achieved lasting success. A fault not lying with my services but with their execution of what I provided. This dynamic is neither good for me or my clients, no business success means no lasting leads. Which will inevitably lead to my business failing as well.

    After looking back at my earliest client interactions I learned a few key points the main one being. Every client that wanted my service were looking for a way to grow their business, Be it by engagement, Sales, Outreach, or awareness. These business wanted to grow and saw my service (with my help) as the answer to their problem. While my service was part of the formula it was not the full solution. What they really need is a guild to that solution pointing them to the right steps along the way.

    This is how I decided to become a business brand consultant, where I can share all my excess business ideas and strategies to help another ambitious business crush their problems and flourish.
    Im meeting with my first client today. A frequent user of my old services. Im excited to making them successful.

    Updates to come...

    Hey thanks for following up, my consultation was a pretty big hit. And the client requested a plan to present to the board in 2 weeks. I provided my advice on areas they were lacking and suggested some strategies they could implement to fix there areas.

    For their execution we have yet to see as the plan is in the making and is expect to see returns in 2-3mo

    I'm not sure I follow you on this.

    None of your clients "took off or achieved lasting success".

    But it's not your fault... the clients simply could not execute.

    And the solution is to share with them your "excess business ideas and strategies"?

    These clients have a recieved products but most don’t have the experience to put them into proper use. Such as a struggling pizza place wants to get more business so they decided to get buy a website. They get an awesome beautiful website that’s being maintained. All they get from the website now is returning customers ordering online. So no real impact. their business isn’t struggling because they lack a website domain but because of awareness. If the pizza business doesn’t know how to promote their brand effectively the website is just a parking space.

    I don't quite understand this. Your client requested a plan to present to their board. You provided advice on this plan. But they haven't created the plan based on your advice yet.

    This is understandable, but how do you go from this to your previous statement.

    Update: Facing what really needs to be done. Reality.

    I decided to cancel the deal and step back from this realm of business. I will be directing my focus back to my real estate and investing portfolio. I must admit I was caught in some entrepreneurial romance with some new information I learned, and acted on emotions to start a new business.

    2 ventures later I stopped this pattern. While browsing the forums I found a checklist of question to ask yourself. This made me isolate my true problem, I was trying to find an easier way to success than real estate. This way of thinking would fail in any venture, if MJs books teach anything its that there is a process and it does not happen over night.

    I will go back to focusing on my real estate, thank you for taking the time to engage on my second post.
