Listen: smart entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants, and authors get asked that ingratiating question all the time. It's usually followed with "well meaning" advice like:
Just make 10 more phone calls, and your business will grow exponentially.
Double your budget to attend seminars - yes, twice as many flights from hell, overpriced hotel rooms you won't get to enjoy, stale $17 "breakfasts", spending half your life waiting for a cab, and prying your eyelids open after already spending 12 hours in the seminar room, so you don't miss one second of networking, after-party, or after-after-party. For three days straight.
Or - and this is a classic - "just suck it up, put your nose to the grindstone, and crank up the midnight oil".
Chances are, you've not only tried all these things, but you've gotten indigestion from your fill of them. It hasn't worked. Something's being left out. You don't want to hear it anymore.
Well, great news! I am going to show you a much better way.
