Children expect opportunities to be handed to them; maturity is understanding you have to go out and make them. – Perennial Seller

I’ve said before that if you’re struggling with contractors it’s probably your fault. That good consultants take control. To stop trying to blame your screw up on something the client did.

I’ve told you all of this because you’re not a child. You’re an adult if you want to do business for yourself and you need to act like one.

Clients don’t fall into your lap; you are in the business of sales.

If you’re not getting clients, then you need to do something about that. If you’re not getting leads, then your marketing isn’t speaking to your prospects.

To run a great business, you need to take control. You need to own your results. You need to not focus on some nebulous ‘future’ in which clients treat you well. You need to focus on the actions you’re taking now that will get you to that future.

What are you going to do this week to bring in more clients? What are you going to do this week to raise your profile?

Who are you going to reach out to, to see if they have overflow work that suits you?

Have an awesome day!


PS: I did write a book about finding your niche and marketing to it. Check that out as a starting point.
