In today’s episode, Anna talks about her belief that running your own business is the best route to freedom, flexibility and fulfilment, and how you can kick-start your business in 2019.
Kickstart my business
(2:55) “As much as there is more to success than money, and part of breaking out of the corporate 9 to 5 is also about breaking away from that steady salary that you’ve been used to, it would be very naive of me to claim that money doesn’t matter in business. Financial freedom is absolutely key to running a successful business and, of course, a comfortable lifestyle. The last thing you want to do is become one of the many struggling freelancers – that cliché of the ‘feast or famine’ – or the hustling entrepreneurs who are working late into the night and still have failed businesses.”
(6:50) “The truth is that even when you’ve succeeded in establishing your business – the basics, the fundamentals – you’ve got all those in place, you’ve been making some sales… things inevitably take longer than you realise, and you may not be making enough yet to replace your previous or your current full-time salary, to go ‘all-in’ in this business.”
(9:29) “It’s a five-day boot camp, free of course, that’s going to help you package your offer to really stand out in that over-saturated, crowded market; to get started proactively marketing online to attract clients to you rather than having to go out chasing them, or passively sitting around and hoping they’re just going to come, and, ultimately, this is going to help you generate the sales you need in the weeks, months and years to come.”
