What I know - is that YOU want to be independent.
You are a capable thinker, a bright spark in your area of skill, talent, knowledge. Yet the next step in your business is unknown.
For whatever reason.
What i know is that - your business dream is only a practicality away. With something in the way of progressing which usually has an element that feels confusing and chaotic and often the answer not clearly in sight for you as yet. This is where I enjoy working with people, to get them moving and flourishing.
I was lucky enough at the age of 23yrs to be offered an opportunity to start a business consulting to a large corporation in my areas of expertise.
I designed, built, learnt my way to lead my company for 13yrs. Then changing direction, I started another business of a smaller style for 10yrs and then in 2017 pivoted to a 3rd model of business as a solo-entrepreneur to include more distance and online consulting, programs for clients.
WHAT I LEARNT
As a solo-entrepreneur, you will be wearing every hat. You may grow to having an assistant of some capacity. As a business you may have people working with you. Your business design is one of the most important choices you will make.
Whatever your setup evolves into, as the leader you will need to be across the financials, your online presence, your first website design, your choice of social media presence (or not), your prospective and client lists, suppliers, agreements, legalities and communications. The list goes on.
No two businesses are the same. The need for guidance and support is. And life needs to still be lived whilst you are busy making other plans.
Let me help you find the easy path through. Ask the tricky questions early and flag for you potential danger zones. At the same time as letting you enjoy doing the creation yourself and celebrating your successes, picking you up when you falter.
I wish I had been able to find this kind of guidance and support when I was starting out. Although I kept looking and asking around for advice, hoping people would share, I had to do it all myself. It was hard, lonely and fraught with much more trial and error than was necessary if I had had a mentor who was interested in my advancement.
If you are someone who:
wants to build your own business
doesn't want a mainstream job and be employed by someone else
has a product, skill or service you are passionate about
want to be a solo-entrepreneur of some capacity.
Then this is for you.
Owning a solo-entrepreneurial business has many moving parts. This way you will have the best chance early in your business so you can clearly see if this is for you, if you can make this a success. One that fulfils your personal mission, your financial requirements and brings you joy in your achievements.
Over the years I remember people using the words that they just seemed to be getting nowhere. Which is why I nearly called my mentoring "Stop Going Nowhere Fast".
And that's what my business resiliency consulting for my clients is all about.
