It is finally spring here in Chicagoland and I could not be happier that the temps are warming up. I always think of the spring season as a time for planting seeds and for new beginnings. When we plant seeds, it takes a while for them to show up on the surface and then again longer for them to grow into mature plants. After planting the seeds, we must make sure that they have the proper amount of water and give them the time needed. There is a lot happening with the seed underground before there are any visible signs to us. And depending on the seeds we plant we may see growth quickly or it could take weeks.
Our businesses are just like planting seeds in the garden. We plant seeds by having conversations with those we would most like to work with. Sometimes they are ready to work with us quickly. Other times it takes much longer to bring them on as clients. Either way without the proper care and nurturing, our seeds will not grow and mature into the wonderful clients we wish to have.
Be patient with yourself and those you are connecting with. Know that different seeds (agents) take different amounts of time to develop. Keep showing up, keep watering them, and soon, you will have a beautiful garden full of amazing clients.
