“Make your business fun”: what this actually means for freelancers

  • There is no one-size-fits-all approach to building a business. YOU are the blueprint. Make decisions that are aligned with who you are.
  • There is no secret and no magic formula either. YOU are the secret. Your unapologetic self-expression is how you build connections and attract people.
  • Simplicity and consistency is fun. Thinking that you need to have a website, sales funnel, presence on all social media channels, a newsletter, a YouTube channel, and a podcast before you even make a sale…NOT FUN.
  • Your definition of success, productivity, meaningful work
  • Your relationship to time and money
  • Your comfort with the unknown
  • How you truly feel about your needs and desires
  • How honest you are about what you want
  • How much do you believe that you can get what you want…just because you want it
  • How much do you believe that you can bring all of you to your work and build a stable business
  • How well can you answer the question: How do you want to spend your days?
