You are a salesperson. Your ability to get anything you want in life requires your ability to persuade other people. It’s really that simple.
If you look at people who are really charismatic, they’re sales people. If you look at people who often get what they want no matter what their profession, they’re sales people.
So much of business is mindset. When people do mindset work, they double, triple, and QUADRUPLE their profits. I kid you not, the people I know who do multiple 6 figures or multiple millions focus PRIMARILY on mindset.
The fear VS massive action dance is something I notice with nearly all freelancers.
It’s especially an issue for those of us who have trouble making consistent $5k months as our baseline.
Every week I have a conversation with at least one person who’s about to throw in the freelance towel. And every week I listen to people tell me that the problem with their business is everyone else’s problem.
This is a blog I’ve been wanting to write for a few months now, but avoided it like the plague because I knew it would cause a bit of a debate. However, in the last month I’ve talked to 25 new freelancers who have been at this for several months and not yet cleared $1K.
And they all have this one thing in common.
They’re obsessed with finding their niche.
