There can be an number of reasons why one can feel resistance when marketing online. It is often challenging—and confusing. When one is running an online business, there are quite a few things that need to be considered and implemented. No wonder we entrepreneurs often feel so much resistance!
If a business owner has no experience or training, it’s easy to feel completely overwhelmed about marketing online for business growth. It’s like going hiking in the woods on a complicated trail with no guide to lead the way: we feel totally lost!
I’ve spoken to many health and spiritual coaches who don’t even know where to start, let alone form an online marketing plan. So fear of failure often sets in before they even start.
There’s also fear of success. If we’re “too successful”, might we be more vulnerable online or financially? And what if we get so busy that we end up being completely stressed out?
Often it just seems easier to leave online marketing on the back burner. But an online business is going nowhere unless we have an online marketing plan—and implementation.

Resistance is natural. Having fear is natural. Take a moment to lean into those fears. But the worst thing to do is to let the fear stop us!
Let’s turn this around. Ask yourself:
What if I…
Not only with my business, but with my self-care…so I’m not overworked or stressed out.
What if I make enough money to hire a VA…and then even more team members?
See what i just did there? Rather than imagine the worst-case scenario, how about imagining the BEST-case scenario?
In a recent blog post, (https://www.innerpowermedia.com/whats-your-business-vision-for-2020/) I included a video where I had viewers imagine their businesses as thriving. Click on the above link if you’d like to see it.
As I share in the video, I tried to have a successful online business for YEARS. What helped me turn things around? Positive visualization, like I just described above, and getting help. Doing things all alone did NOT work.
Taking action to turn things around felt so empowering.
If you’re a business owner, you are in business for yourself. So be GOOD to yourself. Work smarter, not harder. See what that can do for your business…and for you!
