Doing Business Your Way

Doing business your way is not something to take lightly. If you want to make money, there has to be some structure and the ‘your way’ part is where you get creative license to define what that structure is.

No matter what your unique structure is, it will have to have specific components from a practical business standpoint otherwise, you’ll find yourself all over the map and likely struggling just to keep yourself afloat and stay positive in the game.

The following is a skeleton to help you create some structure within your business. You can work from this as a baseline and customize it however you want but, the idea is to help you think about creating a foundation with which you evolve over time. The beauty of doing business your way is that you can change things up anytime and in fact, change is necessary if you want to monetize, strengthen and potentially expand your business.

1. Structure of Work Flow:
-What are you peak productivity times of day?

Building Social Media Alliances

You can't build a viable business online or offline without alliances. Building social alliances strengthens your visibility, engagement and sense of purpose. Building social alliances is an absolute must if you're thinking long range.

Building social alliances is all about connectivity and it's very personal! You can't create a business that supports other people whether you're teaching them how to knit or learn tech, without trusting alliances.

Three categories to consider for alliances are; Clients, Peers and Influencers.

Happy Clients: People who've received enough value from us they are willing to share us with friends. They trust in us based on results they've received from working with us or using our products and that trust is currency. If you've ever had bad food, service or both in a restaurant, that's what you'll share. You won't recommend it to friends. The same is true with any business, program or service. That's why it's important you focus on your customer or clients...

Making An Emotional Connection

If you've ever been to a LIVE concert, no matter what genre of music, I'm just guessing it was a memorable experience for you. As an old school rock-n-roller myself, I've been to many concerts going back to the good ol' 1970's when Bill Graham produced amazing Day On The Green concerts at the Oakland Coliseum. I was in high school and it was a BIG deal! 

Music brings people together because we feel something collectively through the gift of our favorite artists. It's both physical and emotional to be in the crowd. It's a moment like no other and it helps us Be and Feel more connected to the Artists whose music makes a difference in our lives.

The same idea is true for birthing a business that reflects who you are, your point-of-view and what you GIVE to your tribe. Needless to say, it's not magic, it doesn't happen overnight and living the dream is a journey.

Making some emotional connection is absolutely essential to succeed in online marketing and unlike...

Quick Steps To Get Unstuck

REASONS WE GET UNSTUCK INCLUDE:

  • not enough down time to let your ideas sink in
  • taking on more than we can deal with
  • things/people don't fit in our situation
  • we need more sleep
  • we force ourselves to do stuff that doesn't align
  • self-doubt causes confusion
  • we need to break our project down into digestible bites
  • lack of patience
  • our expectations are excessive
  • lack of clarity 

All of this is easily fixable. The journey is as much about personal growth as business growth and I can appreciate wanting results -- but, everything happens in it's in own right time and when we force things, we don't always get the results we want anyway.

YOU are the driver of your destiny but, if you don't believe in that or yourself, you'll stay stuck. Circumstances might not always be our choice but, how we deal with them most certainly is! If you really need self-care, more sleep or time away from the grind, it's up to you to take it. Working on your terms means bucking up, using your creativity...
