If you are new, welcome to my blog!
Today I want to share with you over the course of my journey online, some advice that I was given by others, and how I did follow suit.
Ok here goes; the best advice I have ever heard over and over again by different people that I have encountered with are:
- Have a website
- Hire a coach to be accountable
- Improve your skills.
JuliVAGlobal top 3 advice that you should follow!
When I started out in my business I joined a freelancing site and started offering my services on such a platform. I branched out on my own and got myself a website of my own to start offering my services.
Nothing is better than having a website that has your own stamp of ownership.
JuliVAGlobal’s second advice that you should follow!
You know the saying that you have to invest to make your business grow? The same can be said when you are running a business, not because it’s online, does not mean that you cannot be held accountable, the same way you might not like doing your accounting or blogging, you need to hire out for assistance.
It’s the same with having a mentor or business coach to help you be accountable (free or paid) because you know your family just will not understand when you have those blah days.
I must admit that having an accountability partner has been one of those things that I have seen has made a difference on how I tackle a goal or achieve a task. Being accountable is like having your own cheerleader cheering you on, either if you achieve those goals or not.
JuliVAGlobal’s third advice that you should follow!
So today you’re earning the money and you are on top of your game but improving your skills should not be a one-time thing.
Not because you style women or even make hand-made jewelry does not mean that you are limited to not improving your skills to start charging more for your services and offering new services.
As online trends tend to change, so should you in terms of sharpening those skills.
Can you relate to these advice that I gave? If not, I would like to hear in the comments below, if not, let’s hear some advice that you received from someone who has gone the path before you.
It was nice of you to stop by. Remember, if you need help, ask Juli! Until then, happy hiring, and best wishes with your business.
