Ever looked at a fellow-entrepreneur and thought, “‘WHAT is their secret!?”
Is there some kind of magic formula these 6- and 7-figure female entrepreneurs know that you don’t?
During our most recent Diamond Doers Mastermind event, I discussed the little-known key to building a successful, sustainable, and strong business.
Spoiler: It has nothing to do with a killer headline, kick-ass funnel, or an awesome product! It comes down to something else entirely.
Inside this mastermind event my doers were involved in one-on-one coaching sessions, misterminding hot seats, and powerful keynotes.

Now, let’s cut to the chase shall we?
I can hear you shouting ‘Grace, please, just tell us!’
Well, without further ado, here it is:
Successful businesses are able to grow and thrive only IF their founder is disciplined.
Their founder accepts they do not know everything, and cannot do everything.
Founders are like a load bearing wall, if they fail the entire system crumbles.
That’s a heavy weight to bear.
So, who makes sure they stay standing, who provides support for THEM?
When I first started my business I almost toppled under the weight of ‘doing it all’.
And I wasn’t enjoying myself. I HATED some of the daily tasks I needed to do.
I became lazy, because I had nobody to hold me accountable for my actions…
It was only when I found my own support network that I was able to buckle down and really start DOING.
I remember my mentor giving me a hard dose of reality, she sat me down and told me…
‘Grace, be DISCIPLINED, and look after your health’
I wasn’t looking after myself. I was constantly ‘busy’, but I wasn’t actually getting anything done.
I knew where I WANTED to be… I wanted to be operating in a state where I woke up with crystal clear focus, serious work ethic, discipline, bundles of energy, and extreme efficiency.
As female entrepreneurs, many of us are SUPER disciplined in other parts of our life.
So much so that our businesses sometimes struggle.
My mentors showed me how to take that discipline I had in life and apply it to my business.
And I will admit, at first I was concerned I couldn’t do it.
The kicker for me was, I needed to STOP forcing myself to do the things I hated, the things I found unpleasant. Instead I focused on the things I was good at, the things I genuinely enjoyed doing.
And, I needed to stop wearing ‘busy’ as a badge of honor.
I didn’t have control of my life. I was doing things the wrong way around. I was letting my business controll MY life.
Once I broke that cycle and started operating in a state where I was able to be efficient with my time and super productive, I became a well oiled machine.
I started seeing results, REAL results.
The choices I made were mine, and I own them.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I couldn’t have done it without the support and advice of my mentor.
Because the truth is (and I say this a lot), business is hard.
It’s really as simple as that.
There isn’t an easy fix!

Because no matter how many times you google ‘how to build a business fast’, all the information in the world can’t help you unless you sit-down and implement it… and that takes knowledge and experience.
I know very few people who held ALL the skills and had ALL the knowledge to grow on their own (when they first launched their business).
And with nobody to hold them accountable or provide support they struggled.
You need someone to lean on, someone to provide advice and push you to do your best 🙂
I can guarantee EVERY top female entrepreneur has at some stage relied on the advice of mentors.
People who have walked in their shoes, who KNOW what it’s like trying to grow a business.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone supporting you who has been in the same place you are…
And who knows how to guide you through (while maintaining your sanity)?
Do not underestimate the VALUE of other people, and their experiences.
You don’t need to go it alone Darl!
A mentor will be able to tell you that your meltdown or possible failure is a product of how passionate you are about your business, that you ARE good enough, and that you are an intelligent, fearless entrepreneur.
Having someone in your corner can be the difference between a break though and a break down.
It’s the only way you’ll slip into that 20% category of businesses that survive.
I have countless stories of my failures.
The defining factor, and the thing that helped me get through my own ‘ice cream on the kitchen floor’ moments were the people who I surrounded myself with.
Because the hard truth?
No one does it alone.
Heck, I couldn’t have done it alone!
When my mentors made me accountable for my decisions within my business…
I gained momentum I had only dreamed about before.
And hand on heart, it really was that simple.
These incredible mentors and experts were in my corner, raising me up from a small-town country girl to where I am today…
Where I have the confidence and clarity to run a successful 8-figure business.
So, really, it’s NO big secret.
Success is what you make it.
It comes down to the choices you make. The leaps of faith you choose to follow through with.
What are the real, shortest, and easiest path to success in business?
The KEY traits and habits commonly associated with healthy and thriving female business owners?
The answers are simple: they CHOOSE to surround themselves with a support network that holds them accountable. They lean on others. They are disciplined but know when to take advice from others.
You know that saying, ‘it takes a village’…
It doesn’t just apply to raising kids 😉
Those fellow entrepreneurs you look at and think “‘WHAT is their secret!?”….
The truth is that it’s not a what, it’s a WHO.
It’s who they have in their corner, who they have supporting them on their journey to success.
