04 Mar Secrets on Stamina and Funding
“Building businesses takes tremendous stamina, and success isn’t achieved without it.” Margaret Heffernan Author The Bigger Prize
When you work out, you lift weights and you do a set, take a rest break and then do another set that is usually heavier, followed by another rest break. What makes us think we don’t need a rest break for our brain muscle too?
Instead of not fueling our brains with proper nutrition, many of my start up CEO clients don’t take time to eat right let alone take time to rest their brains.
Is this how professional athletes prepare for the Superbowl? No they rest, the eat right and prepare. Pitching an investor for funding is the Superbowl of meetings. One YES can change the course of your business and your life.
Productivity tip: Instead of working 4 hours straight with no break and no food, sprint for 50 minutes of complete focus and then take a 10 minute break. You will have better ideas and get more done with the rest break than with no break.
Just as running a business is a marathon and not a sprint, preparing your pitch for an investor requires the same preparation as a marathon. Let’s get you fueled with the right sales strategy and make sure you check off all the boxes investors have before they say yes to you.
