There’s something you can do that’s extremely valuable — a skill, talent, or strength that has the potential to make you millions.
What’s an ability you’ve got that changes lives? That makes someone’s day?
This is what I call your Million Dollar Value.
And if you don’t know what it is, then it’s time to find out — because ultimately, this is what you will build your million dollar business with.
Many folks are totally unaware of their own value. This is especially true for marginalized folks who are up against stereotypes, oppression, and disadvantage across the board.
So if you’re sitting there thinking: “But I don’t really bring anything valuable to the table! I’m nobody special…”
I got news for you: You’re mistaken. You’re evaluating yourself incorrectly.
For example, let’s say you’re a hairstylist who specializes in working with Black women.
A new client comes in — and she’s struggled with her hair all her life. She’s tried a hundred different styles and systems and nothing has worked out. Her hair is dry and chemically fried. She doesn’t know what to do next.
You teach this client how to become a natural hair goddess. After hiring you, she finally understands how to take care of her hair. She now has her go-to signature styles, and her hair is moisturized and healthy.
Now she feels more confident, and carries herself differently. She goes after her dream job, and gets it. She plucks up the courage to break up with her lousy boyfriend. And so on, and so on.
You didn’t just give this woman a hair-styling tutorial. You changed her life forever!
How much is that worth?
A lot more than $50, that’s for sure.
This is how I want you to start thinking about yourself, your skills, and your expertise. If you’re really good at what you do (and I bet you are), then you’re not just offering a “haircut” or a “dance lesson” or “social media marketing services.”
You’re changing someone’s life, and that’s worth a lot.
So, what can you offer that’s extremely valuable?
If you’re not sure, here are 5 questions that can help you find out:
1. What are the things that come naturally and easily to you?
There’s probably something that comes so naturally to you, it doesn’t even feel like work, and you enjoy doing it. It might be gardening, writing, organizing, speaking in front of a crowd, or anything that makes you feel like YOU.
2. What are the things you used to be really good at when you were a child?
Growing up changes us — but our childhood can tell us a lot about ourselves. If there’s something you used to be good at when you were younger, chances are you’re still really good at it now. It’s time to unlock that carefree part of you.
3. What are the things you used to get in trouble for when you were growing up?
As a child, I always got in trouble for talking too much. Every report card noted my loud mouth. Well, guess who gets paid very well to talk and share all the ideas in her head now? My natural ability to never shut up is making me millions. What about you?
4. What are the last three compliments you received?
Do you routinely get praised for how incredibly neat you are? You might be the future CEO of a home organizing empire. Do friends thank you for being supportive, encouraging, and their biggest cheerleader? You might have what it takes to run a fitness studio or life coaching practice!
5. What are some things your family and friends always ask you to do?
It could be making phone calls because you’re just that good at getting information, or booking the AirBnB for every family trip because you can always find a great deal online. Time to monetize that ish.
Now, it’s time to put all the pieces together — the things that come naturally to you, the things you were good at as a kid, and the things you get compliments or requests for.
You’ll probably notice a connected series of skills that go really well together.
Imagine how these skills could lay the foundation of your 7-figure empire.
And if you want even better advice that’s more specific to where you’re at in your business right now… take The Growth Scale Assessment. It’s a short quiz that will diagnose your level of business growth, and give you a list of steps you can take to hit your next revenue level.
I can’t wait to hear all about it.
