Ep. 57 – It’s Never Too Late To Dream About a Business You’ll Love

Have you ever looked at your business and felt something was off?

Maybe you thought it’s too late to make a change. Let me tell you, it’s not too late. This idea is often sparked by those of us who are over 50 and have been in business for a few years or more.

We often think it’s too late to make big changes because they’re scary and seem like too much work. But that’s not the case.

I finally realized what I wanted to be in at about age 49. It took me time, but I discovered what I truly loved about my business and what I wanted to do.

The Selah Entrepreneur Podcast - Episode 57

The women I love to coach and work with are primarily over 50, and have that “draw a line in the sand moment” and decide today is the day to figure it out. 

For instance, in a recent mastermind call, we helped a member map out her service offerings from her freebie to her core service. She’s in her early 60s and now sees a clear path and feels excited about her business again. 

Age shouldn’t be a barrier to finding joy and purpose in your work.

3 Common Thoughts That Get In The Way

When you look at your business and feel stuck, uninspired, or unmotivated, it’s a clear sign that something needs to change. Here are a few statements you might recognize:

  • “I’ve been doing this for years, but I feel stuck and uninspired.”
  • “With so much experience, shouldn’t I know what I want to be when I grow up?”
  • “If I make changes now, do I have to rebuild the whole business?”

Let’s break these down one by one.

Thought #1: Feeling Stuck and Uninspired

Feeling stuck doesn’t necessarily mean you need a total pivot. It could simply require a slight tweak to what you’re already doing. 

  • Do you need to redefine your  target market? Who you served years ago may differ from who you’re passionate about serving today.
  • Do you need to give yourself a new title?  Sometimes, it means moving from being a generalist to a specialist, which can be daunting. However, specializing can help you love your business more, raise your rates, and work more deeply with a core group of clients.

Thought #2: Shouldn’t I Already Know What I Want to Be When I Grow Up?

Many of us wonder why we don’t have it all figured out yet. I joked for a long time about finally knowing I wanted to be a coach when I grew up. It took me time to ask hard questions, dive deep, and be honest about what wasn’t working. Not knowing what you want to be when you grow up is okay. It’s not too late to figure it out.

Thought #3: It’s Okay to Grow and Evolve As an Entrepreneur

Your clients and you will grow over time. If you don’t evolve, your clients might outgrow you. Adjusting and pivoting to stay ahead can ensure you continue serving them effectively. 

I recently made a big change in my web design services. Instead of offering multiple options, I’ve honed in on a single starter package, but added a lot of coaching to it. This move is allowing me to show up better for my clients and align my services with my strengths.

Don’t Stop Dreaming

It’s important to keep dreaming, no matter your age. Don’t let the fear of judgment from others, especially non-entrepreneurs, hold you back. It’s okay to dream bigger, to push boundaries, and to explore new possibilities. Your business needs to grow as you grow, so you can continue to serve your clients effectively.

Remember: It’s Never Too Late

It’s never too late to:

  • Find a business you love.
  • Admit that your current business isn’t working.
  • Figure out what’s next.

Ready for a Change? 

If you feel stuck, it’s crucial to evolve. My mastermind group is a testament to this. Over three years, we’ve all changed, and so has our group. The same goes for your business. Whether you need minor tweaks or massive pivots, it’s essential to keep evolving.

So, remember, it’s never too late to pursue a business that excites you. If you have questions or need support, reach out. It’s time to figure out your next step and dream bigger. 

What about you? Your turn:

  • Have you ever felt it’s too late to create a business you’ll love?
  • What has kept you from making changes to grow and evolve in your business?
