Becoming Self Employed: 16 Tips for Successful

Everyone wants to be their boss.

But how can we do it well?

Becoming Self Employed

1. You Are Never Too Old to Learn

During covid, many people became self-employed because they wanted to and because they had to.

People in their 40s, 50s, and 60s are getting excited because they’ve found their purpose.

It dawns on us that we have another 20 or 30 years to live a purposeful life as we move into our second chapter.

2. The Ecosystem of Self-employment

When we want to be successful in our self-employment ecosystem, we pay attention to:

  1. Daily habits
  2. Personal development
  3. Business strategy

In the end, we can only change the environment in which we work to achieve our goals.

3. Personal Development

Becoming Self Employed is when you work for yourself and own the company.

The most important thing you can do to make your business more successful is to improve your ability to make money, get money, and manage money.

4. Development >> Strategies

People want to know what to do and how to do it quickly.

Before you can improve your strategy, you need a foundation.

We won’t use the method and steps until we build the foundation first.

Lottery winners lose their money because they don’t know how to handle it.

5. Fear of Success

Many people don’t want to be good at something.

They are afraid of what they will become if they do well.

You can’t be as successful as you were meant to be if you’re afraid of being successful.

Is it going to change me if I get to where I want to be? It may show who you are, but it won’t change you.

6. Clear Up What You Don’t Want

People go in a good direction when they know what they don’t want.

A bad thing in our lives makes us want to stop it. We’re told to move on and get away from it.

7. Focused Intentions

Don’t be vague about what you want to do.

Be clear about how you want to get from x to y.

There are a lot of things I want to change. For example, I want to get in better shape.

The more precise and powerful we are, the more likely we will take action that works out.

8. Make It to 100%

Too many people reach 80% on ten things.

Few people reach 100% on the three things that matter.

When we finish our projects at 80%, we have changed the goals.

As a result, we think we can only achieve certain things because of our beliefs about what we can achieve.

Finish everything you start.

9. Negative Mindset

Make a list of the things that are holding you back.

The more we can let go of this way of thinking, the more likely we will do well.

The goal is to bring it to light, be aware of it, manage it, and be more productive because it isn’t in our way anymore.

10. Mindset Shift

Ask yourself, what is the most important thing I need to do to change my mind?

Your view of the world is not what it used to be.

As long as the mindset doesn’t help us now, we need to eliminate it.

11. Uncertainty in Direction

Think about where you want to go.

The line may not be straight.

If you make steady progress toward your goal with your daily actions and habits, you will get there and won’t need a detailed map.

12. Personal Brand

As a business owner, you are the brand.

Your brand needs to be honest and friendly.

Those days are over. You can no longer say you’re “the best” and be a jerk simultaneously.

Before people buy from you, they want to believe in you. Be warm, welcoming, and honest.

13. Find Strengths

Many of us feel that we don’t deserve to be where we are.

If we hear that we are good writers, we ignore what people say.

It’s another friend who says, “You’re good at writing.” We still don’t pay attention.

When you hear this same thing from 20 or more people, you should pay attention.

14. Prioritize Current Clients

We spend a lot of time getting new clients, but we ignore the people we already have.

It’s a lot easier when you keep your customers than when you try to get new customers.

Why do we only tell people who want to join us to get 15% off but not tell them they can get 10% off?

15. A Multiple Business Model

We want a lot of ways to make money.

We can think of each source of income as a lever that can increase or decrease it as we want and need.

We have a lot of ways to make money, and we can work together to make the most of them.

16. A Model With Step-ups and Step-downs

If you have a lot of different ways to make money, you can also have many different levels.

For example, your ultimate course might be intensive one-on-one coaching, but you might also offer group coaching or a group for your customers.

A customer in your community may “step up” to the intensive one-on-one coaching and then “step down” back to the community when it’s all done with.

Keeping our customers in our system allows us to keep working with them in different ways throughout their lives and to have them as long-term advocates.
