The 5 Stages of Business and Moving the Needle

I‘ve identified the 5 stages of your business.

And, I’ll give you some ideas on how and why they keep circling back around (and why that’s a good thing)! 

Think of this…a lot goes into making your perfect cup of joe. You’ve thought about what temperature you like your brew, you’ve added in cream and sugar, you MUST have that dash of cinnamon on top… and then BOOM


You get a craving for a new pick me up. You go back to the drawing board and revamp your go-to latte. 

The same thing happens in business!

Step 1:


Take a moment and think back to where you started from. That point where your business was just a little bean waiting to be turned into your perfect drink. This step is very important, it’s the light bulb flickering on! And don’t ever underestimate how far you’ve come… give yourself credit where credit is due!

Step 2: 


Here’s where you very much recognize that there is something more you could be doing. You’ve dreamt up ideas about what you want to create, who your clients might be, and envisioned what your life could be like. 

Step 3: 


Drip drip drip! Your coffee is being made!  You’ve taken a big step towards your new idea and put the wheels in motion.

Step 4:


All is smooth – you’ve taken your action, the mugs are filling, and you are keeping the momentum rolling forward with new ideas!

Step 5:


Something didn’t work out, and you start to revert back to your comfort zone. This happens to everyone! This is your big opportunity to go back to the things that DID work and restart your process. This allows you to pinpoint where you got stuck and work through it. 

All these stages are crucial to moving the needle forward, none of them can happen without the other! If you are always stuck in one stage nothing will change. 

Don’t ever be afraid to take a step back to get to your next milestone. If you’re not challenged, you’re not doing it right! 


I share these five steps because I want to help you pinpoint where you might be in your business journey. I also want to educate you on what your next step should be.
