So…you’re tired of working for a big boss in a corporate environment where you don’t feel appreciated and want to put your talents to better use in your own business. Kudos to you for coming to that realization!
Now is the time to find a quiet place this weekend where you won’t be interrupted and put your planning hat on to figure out the best strategy for building this new business.
It’s one thing to daydream about your newfound freedom and how wonderful it will be to be responsible only for yourself; it’s another thing entirely to become a solopreneur freelancer who is responsible for marketing, customer retention, and for getting the work done properly (and on time!)
This series is meant to exercise that brain of yours, to be creative, to dig deep to uncover your unique qualifications for starting this business, and to discover who your Dream Client is: That elusive figure who desperately needs your services and who is willing to pay good money for the value you give.
We’ll start at the beginning to narrow down your focus so you’re creating a business you love instead of one you dread; and then we’ll move through multiple planning stages, which all build upon each other so you have a sturdy foundation for your business when you open your doors.
Yes, it IS possible to plan this amazing business in just a weekend! But it takes work, creativity, and an open mind on your part, followed by action steps to put your planning into place. Don’t be intimidated by the process. Instead, embrace it, get excited by it, and jump out of your comfort zone to reach that finish line.
