You’re starting your business and nervous and excited. You want help to figure out how to get clients and how to gain traction. You are learning so many things about how to run a successful business.
You’re starting your business and it’s so exciting! You know you have a skill to share with the world. What you need now is clients or people to start knocking on your door. You know that if you could just find those people, you could make your mark.
You’ve tried a lot of things and worn a lot of hats and you’re not sure what makes you special and unique. There are so many other people doing what you want to do. If you could just have somebody tell you what to do next, it would be so much easier.
In the Inspired Hustler phase, we recommend you focus on:
JUST START! Instead of worrying about everything being perfect, get started, hustle to find those first few clients.
Stop feeling icky about sales because selling = helping!
Practice in public. Put your work out there, even if it’s not in the perfect format. Even if you don’t have a huge audience.
Start Social Glue-ing and make connections and relationships in the industry!
