Boss Mindset: Law of Vacuum

with Pamela Muldoon

This week the Bosses discuss The Natural Law of the Vacuum, which states that: “Nature loathes an empty space. So, nature will make sure that empty space is filled, if you don’t.” ​- Steven J. Anderson.


If we don’t fill our schedules, something else will fill it for us. You should plan for the time, clients, and money you haven’t yet landed. Don’t just dream, make plans. Sometimes we must make the hard choices of letting go of clients and activities that don’t bring you joy, to make space for more fulfilling and lucrative activities.



Takeaways

Quick Concepts from Today’s Episode:

  1. The Universe has certain laws that can help you move yourself and your business in a new direction.

  2. The more things in the universe that you can control, the better.

  3. The Law of Vacuum states that the universe abhors an empty space, and will expand to fill this space.

  4. This Law works on both physical space, and also how we use our time. 

  5. You only have so much time, be sure to fill it with clients that serve you.

  6. Bless and release activities and clients that do not bring you joy.

  7. To make space for new clients, you might have to let go of long-standing clients who no longer help your business grow.

  8. Sometimes you have to go through bad clients to learn what a good client looks like.

  9. If the words ‘I just don’t have time’ come out of your mouth a lot… ask yourself what’s truly important.

  10. To grow your business, you may have to outsource your work and shift your resources.

  11. You must fill your vacuum of time in a way to make sure you’re accomplishing your goals.

  12. Sometimes you may lose a client, but this opens the door for clients that better serve your needs.

>> It’s time to take your business to the next level, the BOSS level! These are the premier business owner strategies and successes being utilized by the industry’s top talent today. Rock your business like a BOSS, a VO BOSS. Now let’s welcome your host Anne Ganguzza.

Anne: Hey everyone. Welcome to the VO BOSS podcast. I’m your host, Anne Ganguzza, with the amazing special guest cohost, Ms. Pamela Muldoon. Hey Pamela.

Pamela: Hey Anne. Hello.

Anne: How are you?

Pamela: I’m doing okay.

Anne: Yeah.

Pamela: You know, one day at a time just like everybody else.

Anne: It is, yeah, 2020.

Pamela: Yeah. [laughs] I think that says it all, Anne.

Anne: I have to say, so this past week has been, it’s been frustrating. So I had a client this past week who I’m on a contract basis with them. I’ve been doing some work for a while. Pamela, I think you know me, I’m a little bit of an A type.

Pamela: Just a little bit.

Anne: So if I’m – yeah. So if I, if I submit a job, right, you know, it’s the very best that I can do, and I’m pretty anal about that. So –

Pamela: Of course.

Anne: – if somebody comes back to me and says, no [laughs] like we need a pickup, or for whatever reason – if it’s my mistake, of course, it annoys me. If it comes back too many times, I like, I’m done, I’m done already, right? I like to just do something, be creative, be awesome with it, and then submit it. And sometimes, it’s to my detriment if I have a client that comes back too many times. And I don’t mind it if I feel like things are fairly compensated for my time.

Pamela: Sure, yeah.

Anne: I found out that in the fine print of this client, I was under an obligation to perform my retakes for free. And so I was kind of kicking myself. [laughs] I was like wow, that just does not do well for my time nor my business really, because I’m spending the time doing pickups for free, and when I certainly was – I should have, I should have looked at the contract. So now I’m pretty much very close to releasing this client, because –

Pamela: Bless and release them, girl.

Anne: I think I’m going to release. And I think that it speaks to, I’m sure that there will be another client that will fill the space. I think it speaks to this kind of law that I don’t know the name of it, Pam, but there’s a law that I think –

Pamela: It’s one of my favorites.

Anne: Yes, I always tell people, let those clients go that are going to nickel and dime you, because it will give you the time to either get another great client or something will come into its place that will be better for you.

Pamela: Yes, yes. You have to release to let in. Right?
