Your business is your life

I’ve read and listened to a few things recently that keep saying the same thing. Who you are in life is who you are in business, and the way to be successful is to be true and authentic. That means showing your personal tastes, interests and experiences and weave them into your business.

This is challenging for me as an introvert, but something I want to work at.

I’m slowing thinking and reading and listening more about being self employed. I discovered the Being Boss podcast. They had a great idea about making a list of 200 people/orgs that I want to work for/with and track them on a spread sheet. Then I can see how I engaging and what the results are. I’m also brainstorming possible names and talking to some potential clients. There is so much to do. Can’t wait!

How much do you charge?

I came across something on facebook which lead me to this rate page for a copywriter and his blog post about it. It’s so refreshing to see transparency around rates and I’m sure his clients appreciate it as well. Definitely something to consider for myself. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a design agency or freelancer post their rates.

Another Seth Godin assignment.

What is your client afraid their boss will think if they say yes?
They don’t see the value in it. That it will take too long, and don’t have the budget.

What would your client tell their boss to explain why they bought from you?
It will make us better at what we do, and it will show others that we’re as good as we say we are. Budget can be managed a la carte to control costs, but the investment in time and money is necessary to achieve our mission.

What would you like them to tell their boss?
It’s going to get us in touch with our audience, find out their needs, create something that addresses them and has impact. It will get us out of our rut, push us above the competition, and increase our audience and the difference we can make. It will be well-managed process from start to finish.
