I’m sure we’re all thinking the same thing: I can’t believe January is only a few weeks away. Yep many are saying the same thing. However, we have learned over the years that with a bit of effort, the start of the new year can boost your freelance career or business. Here are some doable tips:
- HIT 1 goal a day! I know some may think that number is too low, however, how many of you say you’re going to do at least 2 or 3 things for yourself on any given day and wind up not even completing 1? When you work diligently with clients, you often put your own work on the back burner. If you accomplish one major goal a day, you’ve done a good thing for your psyche and your business!
- Talk to yourself. That’s right find out what really makes you happy, at your very core. Use this as a catalyst to propel your career in the direction YOU want to take it. It’s OK, to listen to a few people you admire and respect and implement some of their suggestions; but ultimately, it’s your business and if you’re not happy, well, what’s the point?
- Join a group to help you stay on track. Look for free groups to join where there is a lot of participation. It will keep you engaged and up-to-date on current trends.
