An "Un-Sexy" Biz Tip With Big Sharp TEETH
A while back I was on a friend's private coaching call teaching how to break free of freelancing (or working for someone else), and going full time online with your own business.
A merry time was had by all.
But one thing discussed was especially valuable.
Something everyone can do.
And, I daresay, something everyone SHOULD do.
What do I speaketh of?
Paying yourself first.
I'm not talking about this from a financial point of view (although I believe that's also mucho important).
Here's what I mean:
When I was doing client work I ALWAYS did my stuff first.
In other words, no matter how much work clients threw at me (and when I was on retainer this was crucial) the first hour of every day was MINE to work on my own projects.
No, clients did not always like this.
But tough s#!& for them.
Hour #1 belonged to me.
Did it make a difference?
And yet, it's the OPPOSITE of what most freelancers do. Usually people pour all their energy and time into their client's stuff first, and then hope they have the energy to do their own stuff later (when they're tired, burned out, etc).
Big, big, BIG mistake.
I always gave my stuff #1 priority.
Client stuff came second.
I'm not saying to shirk doing a good job.
I'm just saying to pay yourself first.
Hey, this tip may not be "sexy."
But it's got TEETH.
Big SHARP teeth.
And the payoff is enormous.
Of course, in my case, the first hour was writing an email to my list (actually, two lists).
In my humble (but accurate) opinion email is TOPS.
The #1 MOST profitable activity.
And profit handsomely from it.
