Have you ever received feedback about your business or launch and weren’t sure exactly what to do with it?
Maybe you felt overwhelmed, or confused, or hurt…or ANGRY!
I think we’d all agree that feedback is important. But it can also be tough to deal with, tough to know the good from the bad…
Today we’re going to share my strategies for handling it all…including the process I force myself to follow every single time I get a download of information from anyone or anywhere.
Because, even if we know that feedback is important for our business, helps us grow and gives us new perspective on what we’re doing…it can often lead us to not taking any action.
No action equals no growth.
So, if you’ve got a launch coming up or are at a crossroads in your business or will likely be asking for advice from someone about either, this episode is for you.
In this episode we cover:
- Reasons why feedback is so important for your business (even when it’s not good feedback).
- All the places where feedback comes from–internally and externally
- Why any type of critique might make you feel like crap even when you know it’s good for you!
- How I had to “un-learn” my old way of taking feedback (and who taught it to me)
- Scary truths about taking feedback without looking at all the facts surrounding who gave it to you, their motives, their knowledge of you, and how to get out of loops where you might get stuck!
- My simple process for dealing with any type of feedback and what I do with feedback that’s not for me
And we also talk about what to know before you ask for launch advice or feedback…
Final Thoughts on Feedback
There are many ways to improve launches but I always caution members of Fearless Launching to look at the facts first. Just because someone you respect launches a specific way, does not mean it will get you the same results.
We have a few simple metrics you can look at to start figuring out how to make your launches better inside Fearless Launching. And it’s a good idea to talk through your launch with someone else, but stick to the facts.
Feedback can also feel amazing when you are surrounded by a group of amazing supporters and champions. You ask, receive, give…and it feels like there’s value from/to everyone.
