As I’m sure everyone is aware by now, especially after seeing my confession-like videos during the Clean Start Challenge, I’m in the middle of re-launching my freelance/consulting business. So when I stumbled on this Forbes.com article, Five Tips to Grow Your Consulting or Freelance Business, I just had to share.
I realized I’m already screwing up in FIRST TIP!
“Do people know you are in business, and do they know what business that is? Your network might still think of you as an executive at Time Warner or Pfizer or whatever large corporation and not realize you want consulting work. Even if they know you are open for business, do they know what business leads to refer? Have you educated them on what your ideal project and/or client is?”
While I’ve announced I’m going to start freelancing, even started building out the site bizziecreative.com. I’ve never announced what I will or really want to do in business nor did I announce what business I’m going into.
Well stay tuned, details coming soon. So glad I stumbled on this Forbes.com article.
