When I start working with a new client, within a month or two I always have great feedback. The comment I hear most often is “I’m so glad I found you”.
And yet, I sometimes have a hard time convincing prospective clients that they need me in their business (or more importantly that I’m worth a chunk of their (often small) budgets.
Many of my clients come to me when they’ve already made a series of mistakes, or when they’re desperately looking for a solution to a problem. It’s my pleasure to help people but I always think, “I wish you came to me sooner; I could have saved you so much time and money!”.
Then I saw this quote:
“An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field”.
Making mistakes in business is often seen as part of learning, but think of it this way, you can spend money one of two ways:
a) making your own mistakes and spending money to correct them.
b) investing in someone who has already made those mistakes, learnt the lessons and is ready to pass them on to you, saving you time and money in the future.
If you’re a small business with limited funds it might seem like you can’t afford to hire an expert but actually, can you afford not to?
