In the realm of entrepreneurship, achieving success isn’t just about having a groundbreaking idea or an innovative solution. It’s about understanding the core principle that can make or break your journey: clarity. If you want to grow your business and do it right from the onset, gaining clear insights into two crucial aspects is imperative: the problem you solve and the audience you intend to serve.

Firstly, think deeply about the problem that keeps your ideal customer awake at night. It’s essential to grasp what is causing them stress and actively seek to provide a solution for that specific issue. At this stage, your focus should be on the problem itself rather than the solution you offer. Why? Because, at this point, your potential customers aren’t as interested in how fancy your solution is; they want to feel understood and assured that you grasp the gravity of their struggles.

I learned this valuable lesson firsthand when I ventured into the yoga business. Initially, I believed I could cater to everyone, from young toddlers to centenarians. Despite having a wide array of solutions, targeting such a broad audience made it incredibly challenging to sell, scale, and effectively communicate my message. The lack of a clear target audience led to confusion, not just for me but also for potential clients who couldn’t identify whom my services were designed for.

This experience taught me the importance of narrowing down both the problem I aimed to solve and the audience I wished to serve. By adopting a more focused approach, your message becomes clearer, making it easier for your target audience to hear and understand you.

As Hope Zvara aptly puts it, “Speak to everyone and no one listens, speak to one person and everyone hears you and wants to work with you”. This principle has profound implications for business owners at any stage of their entrepreneurial journey.

When you find your business struggling to scale, the solution might not necessarily involve adding more to your offerings. Sometimes, what’s required is a strategic reduction—focusing intently on becoming an expert in one area. Once you’ve established yourself as a specialist, expanding becomes more feasible, as your audience begins to seek more of your expertise.
