Solopreneurs Unite - Small Business for Small Business
It has been awhile since my last blog, but that is because I was having doubts. Like most Solopreneurs, I was starting to doubt myself and my ability to make this work. I love Social Media, I love teaching people, I love design, and I love helping people improve their business. However there is one thing I am missing; clients.
I started to doubt myself about a year ago when I was told by another entrepreneur, someone that I was learning from and thought of as a mentor of sorts that I didn't have a clue and to basically get out of her way. As many of you can imagine, this hurt quite a bit. She would question everything that I did and then tell me how I was making more work for her team. Lucky for me, it didn't take me long to realize that she was actually intimidated by the work I was doing and wanted to stomp me out before management saw that she really wasn't teaching me anything I didn't already know.
I decided to take the information that I had and put it into a business of my own. Somewhere I could work with people just like me. Maybe they needed a little confidence boost or to improve on their skills in order to get them to the point of feeling comfortable; or maybe, they would rather work with someone to make sure everything is as it should be. I am about building people up and helping them get over hurdles that may have held them back. I promised myself I would NEVER let someone like the woman I mentioned above hold me or anyone else back from being their best self.
Spring forward 6 months to now, and I am doubting myself again. I had 4 potential clients flake and 2 not get back to me at all after expressing interest. Not being one to hound, I let it be, but again it makes me wonder what it is I could be doing differently. However, I am realizing that by doing anything differently I would be doing myself, my business and my clients an injustice. I would rather be real than someone who claims to be able to do things that I simply can not. I am not a guru, a maven or state that I will give you tools which are guaranteed to grow your business by 1000% within 3 months but if you are looking to work with someone who has passion, drive, ambition and a real interest in helping you have come to the right place.
