1. Get Good Photos. Lots of ’em!
Plus, graphic designers will LOVE you!
2. Deal With Your Money Blocks
Money blocks sabotage the best intentions.
Money blocks hold us back, fill us with fear, make us play small and/or quit too early.
They lead to frustration and bitterness, sabotage our potential and undermine our confidence.
Clearing your money blocks is an ongoing commitment. There’s alway more to uncover.
But it’s worth the effort.
Trying to run a business while denying your money blocks is like running a marathon with a fridge strapped to your back. It’s really dumb.
3. Learn everything you can about marketing.
It doesn’t matter how amazing your product is, if you don’t know how to market it, if you don’t know how to spread the word, put energy behind your offering and draw the right people to you, your lemonade stand will topple before it even gets started.
Marketing is your friend. It’s also your clients’ friend. They need to know what you have and what it can do for them.
As the marketing gurus say , don’t sell on your heels. Step forward. Learn to market with ease and sincerity.
Marketing is sophisticated sharing. That’s all.
4. You will always be scared.
Everyone is scared.
Being visible is scary.
Speaking your truth is scary.
Selling, marketing, making offers, is really friggin scary.
The more you do it, the less scary it becomes.
And the more people you help with your product or services, the more you realise just how valuable your efforts are. Just how important it is to have courage and self-compassion.
That makes ‘scary’ bearable.
And it makes you a fantastic role model.
Courageous, playful, self-aware role models make the world a much better place.
I like that.
It spurs me on.
I hope it spurs you on, too.
