#158 [Web TV] Do you totally suck at business?

Do you totally suck at business?

Maybe you do.

Or maybe you just have the wrong business model for YOU.

If you are driven to make a difference and are motivated by more than money then you need to watch this week’s 5 minute video.

This video is in response to an email from one of my lovely clients after watching the video (and transcript) on this page.


Her response? “This is one of those things I deeply wish I had understood a whole lot earlier and saved myself a whole lot of pain and confusion.”

I hope this helps you too.


P.S. My entire book “Romance Your Tribe Online” is designed to help you make a difference in your business while being profitable. You can get the first 2 chapters for free, plus 13 interviews with leaders who practice the principles I teach..over here: www.RomanceYourTribe.com









Hello and welcome Janet Beckers here with your Wonderful Web TV tip of the week. It’s great to be here with you.┬áToday is inspired by a lovely customer, Cheryl Hill, who sent me an email saying “Janet I just watched this video that you’ve got on your website, read the transcript and it just really resonated. And you need to share this with the world.”

So I thought okay, Cheryl, this is for you baby. I’ll put the link down below for you to the video, the page that she’s talking about. It’s me telling you who it is that I work with. This is the way that I approach business. I’m teaching the way where you’re going to be; you can build a business, whether it’s going to be ebooks, through affiliate marketing, through memberships site, whatever it is.

Where the focus throughout what you’re learning there is about it doesn’t really matter what you’re building a business on, just follow the numbers, it could be anybody doing it, it’s totally impersonal, fully automated. Choose a topic based on what the demand is and it’s irrelevant if you have interest in it.

Now this works, people who were teaching these systems, very often they get great results. I’ve got a lot of friends who do that, but I find the people who I really enjoy working with are the people who want to make a difference in the world. They truly, truly connected with the topic that they are building the business on.

In fact, if you are that type of person, very often you may have been drawn to these others hot programs because you’re thinking well that is the logical way to do it because you’ve been sold on that, you’ve seen other people work it. You start to go down that path and it just doesn’t work. It fails, you can’t just keep the energy, the momentum, the passion for it and you keep on sabotaging, whatever it is that you try to work out what the reason is.

Anyway you totally suck it up basically and it doesn’t work. So you can start to think “I’m an idiot, I’m a failure, this is me.” But I’m telling you that very often it’s because you’ve got a bigger picture, you’ve got a bigger dream, and I’ve worked with a lot of people that have come to me after having gone through that and I look at what their aspirations are, they get enjoyment from, what their true big why is and the model that they’ve chosen was never going to do that for them.

In fact it was squashing them down and they’re frustrated. As soon as we start looking at “okay let’s look at how we’re going to structure your business.” You still have structures, you still have systems but you’ve got to make sure that whatever you integrated in to that is going to be feeding in your soul.

It might be, sure you’ve got an automated business but you want to work with some people one on one, that you may want to meet with people in person. So integrate that into your business. It might mean that you’re working on something that’s a bigger picture and it’s something that really resonates with you.

But looking straight at the numbers it’s not going to be an obvious thing. That’s the thing that’s going to feed your soul. So how can you find within that particular passion the focus that’s going to help you to be able to put the structure in to build your business.

If you’re finding that you’re frustrated by this, that doing the step by step numbers approach taking any passion and interest out of the picture doesn’t work for you. A lot of people it does, and that’s cool for them. But if that doesn’t work for you, stop beating yourself about it and embrace that you want to make a difference. Embrace that you want to do that and make sure you integrate that into everything you’re doing.

Own it baby. And then you will start to see that you’re going to start to be able to build something that you can be passionate about and does feed your soul. So that who I intend to work with.

People who want to make a difference, doesn’t have to be on the world’s scale, it could be on the small scale to just a few people but you’re driven by that mission and by that difference for having a message to share.

I’d love to hear from you, have you tried this totally passionate step by step on any topic? How’s that work for you? For some people this is perfect. And I’d say that your passion is actually systems and numbers and that’s cool. Have you found that and it worked? Or have you found that and it just didn’t work for you and felt disconnected? Have you found something that has worked for you?

I really love to hear from you, I know it’s going to help a lot of people as well. So please keep your comments down below and I will come and join the conversation and if you have a friend or a colleague that is getting frustrated going down the more masculine route of building an internet based business and they’re getting frustrated with it, pass this video on to them. It just might help to get them to trust their gut and to build their business in a way that’s going to meet their needs as well as to be profitable.

I’ll see your comments down below. Bye.




  1. Janet, I love this one.

    I am on a mission to help people choose the right models for them which means understanding all the options and having a methodology to match a model to their strengths.

    People don’t realise that many mentors only teach 1-2 models and they don’t provide the filters necesssary for clients to be able match their strengths and lifestyle goals to the business model they teach.

    Great topic Janet,

    Cheers, Cate

  2. Georgette Rowland Osborne says:

    Great video. Lots of women need to hear this so they realise it is ok to be themselves in business.

  3. Well said Janet. I tried to combine the both because my niche was doing what Cate talks about in the 1st comment (Go Cate). But even following my passion with the ‘masculine’ or numbers based trainers still took me off track because what I realized was that everything they see or feedback is ‘squewed’ into numbers and makes irrelevant the ‘spirit’ of my business – the spirit or ‘flavor’ of my direction.
    So ultimately, it is mixing oil and water.

    Thanks again for making this essential point and I hope heaps of people pick it up.

  4. Thanks JB,

    I’ve been guilty of buying an $8,000 share trading program (and never opening it) plus several other ‘get rich quick’ type programs.

    But ultimately the drive to do anything just to make money wasn’t there.

    But I know, like you, when I’m ‘on purpose’ it’s not work and the hours don’t matter because I’m on a mission and passion is the driver and helping others the reward (and yes, together with the energy exchange of info or assistance with financial remuneration…ie moolah)


  5. Love your work Janet. You are so authentic. So refreshing to hear.
