Why You SHOULDN’T Add an Income Stream in Your Business

#107: Why You SHOULDN’T Add an Income Stream in Your Business

I’m a little nervous for this episode, but it’s been on my to-record list for quite a while. The reason I am nervous is that we are diving head first into why you shouldn’t have multiple streams of income in your business.

I’m a little nervous for this episode, but it’s been on my to-record list for quite a while. The reason I am nervous is that we are diving head first into why you shouldn’t have multiple streams of income in your business.

I’ve been avoiding recording this episode because I personally have multiple streams of income in my own business. BUT I believe I could actually be making more money if I didn’t have so many different streams.

This episode is discussing that and how more income streams isn’t always better. Here are the main topics in this episode:

  • More businesses, more problems
  • Getting to six figures before adding another income stream
  • Adding income streams can split your attention
  • Why being impatient can lead to the wrong business move
  • Refining your core service
  • Doing the hard and thoughtful work rather than busy work
  • Passive income is not truly passive
  • Don’t start a business/income stream from panic, worry, or fear
  • Those opportunities aren’t going anywhere; you can make any time good timing
  • You owe it to yourself to wait
  • I thought the only way to scale my income was to add more streams

A few highlights from this episode:

[5:49] – I can confidently tell you that the best way to get a business to six figures is to have one core service or offering in your business and learn how to scale that.

[10:54] – Scaling to six figures should be about constant refinement. How can I make this better? How can I make this experience most seamless? How can I stand out more?

[17:38] – Your time is so much better spent on one thing. It’s going to move the needle so much more in your business.
