How Can a Million Dollar Plus Business Fail?

As you likely know by now if you’ve spent any time around these parts, I’ve hit the same level in my businesses 3 times now.

I’ve broken 7-figures, time and time again, which for most people would be the ultimate in next level success.

But we all have our easy to get to thermostat and for me it just happens to be a million, million and a half a year in revenue with me keeping about 25-33% of that.

And no matter whether your thermostat is stuck at $5,000/mo or $100,000/year or $500,000/year or $1mm/year — stuck is stuck is stuck.

So for me, a business that makes a million a year plus is fairly simple to get to — not always easy, but straightforward, clear, direct. I know how to do it.

And I want to break through.  Not for the money. I’m plenty happy with how much money I earn personally. My own work with the Money Map takes care of that, no problem.

But I want more support for my work. More time and energy to start my podcast, and write books, and be more of an “at home mom” to my kids.

A million dollar business requires a lot of oversight. It’s a lot of responsibility.

Over the past year or so, I’ve had CEOs in place to run the businesses so I could have plenty of freedom to travel easily, and be with my kids.

But it wasn’t sustainable.  They kept getting burned out. And I had to step back in.

I couldn’t figure out why.

I thought maybe it was me. I was flawed in some way.

And while I am definitely flawed in many ways (perfectly so, of course!), what I have recently discovered — that I now want you to learn with a lot less hassle than it cost me – is that I have repeatedly gotten stuck and burned out because the teams supporting the businesses were not set up correctly.

Phew. That is something fixable.

If you want to check out what it would take to build a team that could support a $5,000,000 business, watch Justin Livingston’s new video and download the organizational chart he shares.

Now, here’s the thing — you MUST watch the video and not just see the organizational chart.

I almost made this mistake and threw my team and myself into a tizzy of “there’s no possible way we can do this” — but fortunately, I contacted Justin and he said, watch the video.

I did and now I am on my way to a big breakthrough.

Check it out for yourself.

I’d love to hear what you think about it after you do. It’s a game-changer, for sure.


PS — no need to get concerned about my use of the word failure in the subject line of this post. I’ve gotten to the place in my life and businesses that I am “too big to fail”, but not in the way you may think.  My businesses could still fail. There’s no question about it. They are not too big to fail, by any means. My health could fail. My bank account could fail.  But, my internal state is too big to fail.  No matter what happens externally, I have already achieved ultimate success because I love the woman I am becoming in the process.
