With SPI Pro, we’ve attempted to cultivate an entrepreneurial community where it’s safe to ask questions, experiment with ideas, practice pitches, commit to challenges, and learn and grow without fear of judgment or rejection.
If you’ve been on the fence and wondering if SPI Pro is the right fit for you, give these five reasons a glance—they’ll help you make the call.
The Five Reasons You Could Be Great for SPI Pro
1. You have a business and an audience.
SPI Pro might be a great fit if you already have:
- a functioning business that’s already generating some revenue, even if it's small.
- an online presence—a website, an email list, a social channel, or some combination—that’s begun to attract an audience.
There’s nothing wrong with being an early-stage entrepreneur with little to no audience. We celebrate you, and have plenty of resources to help you along. It just means SPI Pro is not the best fit for you, because we’re focused on the needs of entrepreneurs who are trying to take their established businesses to the next level.
2. You’re open to learning and receiving feedback.
Being a member of SPI Pro means being courageous. You’re a fit if you’re excited to receive feedback that may challenge your thinking, and even the way you’ve built your business so far. By the same token, you’re willing to help others by providing feedback that could give them the insight or motivation they need to take the next bold step with their own business.
3. You’re not driven by ego or fame.
Your list of operating principles includes things like empathy, optimism, tenacity, and abundance. You’re not motivated by things like status or wealth. Although those things might be byproducts of your eventual success, an attitude of service and humility is what will get you there—and ultimately make you a great member of SPI Pro.
4. You’re looking for a community that’s not exactly like you.
You value diversity in all its forms and are accepting of others regardless of their appearance, ideas, and backgrounds. If you prefer to surround yourself with people who look, think, and act like you, then SPI Pro is probably not the place for you. We have folks with a range of backgrounds, business types, and life experiences, and we know that we’re better when we embrace that diversity and work to truly include everyone.
5. You’re ready to work hard.
Business owners who thrive in SPI Pro are the ones who accept the responsibility to work hard and diligently because they know that success is not guaranteed or easily achieved. Passive income doesn’t mean easy income or getting rich quick. If you’re expecting success to come easily, quickly, and largely on the backs of others, then you’re going to be disappointed with SPI Pro. (And really, with anything SPI has to offer!)
Those are the five most important characteristics of someone who could be a great match for the SPI Pro community. If you happen to check all five boxes, we hope you'll visit SPIPro.com and submit your application—we'd love to see if it's truly a fit!
