Back to Business
Happy Monday, everyone. Thanks for the love on
the new banner. I appreciate it.
This year I started taking seriously the idea
of creating my own jobs from my natural talents.
If I can't find a job, then I create my own job.
We all have gifts that make us unique.
With 2010, weeks away. I encourage you to start
today. Yes, today. Why wait for January 1st.
Make a list of a what you really love to do.
That your passionate about. No kinda like,

Which has retaught me a lot of what
I think reflects in my world.

exactly what you can do and what you don't

2) If your starting out, price your
services at what you feel comfortable at.
When your ready to up your rates,
practice saying your rate out loud until
you can do it without blinking.
(This does work, trust me.)
3) If you get a vibe that a prospective
client or project is flaky, trust your
feelings. Get out gracefully.
4)Keep a list of all your clients. Even
after the initial job is done, stay in
contact. Let people know you are still
5) Mute your survival and desperate feelings
for your work. Project a positive and
confident image for yourself.
6) This is your business. This is your career.
This is your life! Have it reflect who you
Was 2009 not that great for you? Well
2010 is right around the corner. Do
the seed work today, so your 2010 can
