I am a solo-entrepreneur. It’s just and my extremely hourly Virtual Assistant. My dog and cat are my co-workers and they only purr, knock my papers off my desk or bark. Cute & I love them to pieces, but not a great help brainstorming. Working alone can be great-no interruptions or watercooler chat … but there’s interruptions or chatting.
There’s Facebook-where you feel like you’re a part of things. Facebook is a time suck. An entrepreneur has no boss policing them. You have to police yourself! I learned from LinkedIn -it’s for professionals…it still is so easy to lose track of time and time is our most precious commodity. You can’t give me some hours or trade a Saturday for 2 Tuesdays-time doesn’t work like that….
I was talking with a friend who found that keeping to a schedule helps structure the day. I have Marketing Mondays, maybe 1-2 clients in the evening. Tues, Wed & Thurs are for clients-following up, if I am working on a client’s resume or business plan, I know what days I can do that.
Fridays are my Business Development Days. I work on how to grow my business. What systems do I need to implement? Who do I need to reach out to? For example, I have a Holiday Special- 90 minute Breakthrough session – $297 I’m contact my former clients it can be a Check up appointment, too.I have been gathering new skills and experiences and know we can have a Breakthrough-solving problems that affect you now and how we can work together on it…What can you offer? A realtor offered fresh baked Holiday cookies with any staging. A Marketing Coach friend offers her Holiday Marketing Makeover at a discounted investment.
