Are you thinking that you may need a little guidance as you build your business? Here’s my quick advice on how to get started when you’re starting from the actual, true, bottom-of-the-barrel, humble beginnings that I am coming from: Do it yourself for a while. Get your bearings before you actually start throwing money at a coach. Waiting a little bit will ensure that you get the right coach for your business and your style. Work your business as a solopreneur until you have good direction and you know your true north. When you're ready, here are some good starting places for great advice.
I hear a lot of business gurus preach that we need to get a team to help us build our business but I’m gonna be super straight-up here – there’s no budget to put someone on the payroll. So when I say quit trying to figure it out yourself, I’m not talking about hiring someone to help you out. If you don’t have the money, you don’t have the money. You have helper wages sitting around in a trust fund that you haven’t tapped yet? I sure don’t. I think if any of us were sitting on a bank roll that would finance a little help around here, we’d jump at the opportunity to hand off the tasks that we suck at and hate doing. We're going to dive into how to get help with what you really need and where you can get it for FREE.
I can be a touch rougher than what most people find socially acceptable. Honestly, I’m okay with that. My husband rolls his eyes regularly and I try to behave for the most part, but what really lights my fire is when I can just relax and let me be me. When I come across that special group of kindred heathens that welcomes my let-it-all-hang-out-self shine, I know I'm among true friends, but how much is too much? When do you draw that line? Maybe it's time to explore that boundary.
You know how you start a journey and then the opportunistic piece of you sees a chance for this or that popping up and suddenly you’ve lost your focus on the initial intention and now your off in the weeds chasing these extras that actually aren’t in line with those original ideas? This happens to me all the time. I lose my laser beam focus and it becomes more of an unmanned fire hose stretched just a little left of the actual blaze. Here's my easy FREE way to get back and stay focused on your originally intended goals.
Who’s in charge around here? Sometimes that answer is not as easy as it should be. I work alone; I own the business; I am a solo entrepreneur - the answer here should be obvious. I’m in charge around here! Hear me roar! That sounds all fine and dandy and it fits on a bumper sticker or coffee mug nicely but it’s not always the reality of life, now is it?
