When it comes to setting goals and achieving them as a business owner, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better role model than the late, Chadwick Boseman, an American actor known for his portrayals of real-life historical figures such as Jackie Robinson in 42, James Brown in Get on Up and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall, and for his portrayal of the superhero in the Marvel Movie, Black Panther.
How are you finding ways to press on with purpose?
In 2018, Chadwick Boseman gave an empowering commencement speech at his Alma Mater, Howard University.
Boseman said… you would rather find purpose than a job or a career. Purpose crosses disciplines. Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history. Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill. Whatever you choose for a career path, remember the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your purpose.
When you are faced with adversity or presented with challenges that leave you perplexed, doubting or questioning rather our, not God actually gave you the dream or vision to becoming a business owner. Remember to hold on to your purpose.
You were willing to take a leap of faith, by taking the way that may have been filled with more failures than successes. Don’t give up.
Continue pressing on with pride and purpose and your journey will be filled with more pride, more victory, and more glory, than you’ll ever regret the process.
As Chadwick said, “Now as you commence to your paths, press on with pride and press on with purpose.”
Spend time working on the things that are important to the continued growth of your business.
- Develop a new group coaching program
- Write a chapter of your upcoming book
- Write emails for your autoresponder (Automatically respond back to prospects or clients)
- Reach out to JV partners (Joint Venture is a business arrangement in which two or more parties agree to pool their resources for the purpose of accomplishing a specific task that active participants benefit from.)
- Pivot your business from face-to-face to providing services online.
I’m giving you permission right now to start treating yourself like the VIP you really are.
It’s time to put your business growth ahead of that of your clients so that you can reach a larger audience, help more people, and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
Make appointments with yourself. That hour or two you have free on Thursday afternoon? Don’t book a client call in that spot. Book yourself. Mark it on your calendar, and treat it as an unbreakable appointment, just as you would an appointment with a client or your doctor or your accountant.
In short, do those things you tell your clients to do—the things your own coach is likely advising. Don’t push them aside for “later” or “after your client work is done.” Elevate yourself to VIP client status and start putting yourself first. Your business will thank you for it.
In Bosemans voice…”This is your time!”

One thought on “Press On With Purpose in your Business, Stop Being Your Own Worst Client”
This is a phenomenal article. We tend to allow others issues or life it self get in the way of our true purpose. Once we understand what our purpose is on this earth then there is no room for delay. Once you get started there is no stopping your purpose “until death due you part.” Never stop nor seeking your purpose. What is your purpose aka passion?
