In the midst of complexity of building and marketing your business online, all solo entrepreneurs face challenges.
What makes you persist and not give up? It’s likely that you cultivate growth mindset.
What makes you different from others?
Your persona and personal brand gives a uniqueness to attract your targeted audience.
I will share this simple ABC which I believe to contribute for growth mindset and personal brand.
How can the energy of love help you in marketing and growing your business?
I recommend you to read the ten scrolls from the book The Greatest Salesman in the World by Ong Madino. Here are the catchy phrases from scroll number 2 in the book which captured the essence of Love.
I will greet this day with love in my heart.
With love, I will increase my sales a hundred-fold and become a great salesman. If I have no other qualities, I can succeed with love alone. Without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.
Tangerines are quite popular in Chinese New Year. Children usually prefer tangerines rather than mandarin oranges because tangerines are seedless, sweet and bite-sized. In Chinese tradition, Oranges and tangerines are often associated with happiness and abundance. Therefore, we have plenty of these fruits at home during chinese new year, and we exchange them with relatives, neighbors and close friends to wish them happiness and abundance.
I feel like that we are still in New Year mood in early January. Everyone talked about their New Year resolution and goals. It looks like they really want to work on their goals to make year 2019 better than the last year. It’s true that we always high hope in the beginning of the year to set our ambition.
I recently conducted a survey for small business owners to share their challenges and their dream solution, what they hope for.
If you are running a business and you are doing it solo, you can participate in the survey here. 🙂
I understand that you try to be self-sustaining, hoping to work it out by yourself.
You don’t want to share your challenges, hope and goals with someone else because you don’t trust them. They may belittle or disagree with you.
I was in the same situation previously in building my career online.
I always said, “I can do it by myself. I don’t need any help. I can ask uncle Google. Google always gives me the answer”
I believe that having someone to support you is crucial. Knowledge and information themselves can’t give you the solutions. Humans can’t operate like a machine which can process the information because humans are more intelligent and at the same time, they are emotional too.
How can coaching discovery help you?
Coaching discovery is for people who are new to coaching and want to experiment coaching. Most people keep their ideas and problems to themselves, it is an opportunity for you to share your challenges and hope to a coach. Because the nature of coaching is non-judgment and confidential, you will let go of your fear and telling whatever you need to tell without the fear of being judged.
People of all ages have a tendency to be entrepreneurial with the technology and Internet. People are more creative to generate ideas, to make products or to create services that help others.
The good sides about being an entrepreneur is we work independently on our own although we can create a team. If you are doing it alone, get a support. Even Steve Jobs is not doing it alone, he has a coach to help him. We are the initiator. We do what we love, and we love what we do. We can apply our own ideas to make products or services which make an impact for people. We have the freedom and there is no limit of what we can do.
I never knew that the Internet would provide an opportunity for me to redesign my life.
Previously, my option was only working at manufacturing company because I earned a degree in Engineering.
After a hiatus of raising my children, I couldn’t go back to employment, so I need to create a career for myself.
I value flexibility and freedom, and I have benefited so much from the Internet in terms of information and communication.
I connect with awesome mentors, coaches, clients and friends from different parts of the world whom I might not otherwise. 😉
I choose Internet-based because I don’t need brick and mortar building to market my professional service and it is cost effective.
I have built my online presence by using personal branding website and social media.
Now, I’m helping professionals, small business owners to build their presence online.
I know there are many professionals and small business owners who need help in expanding their career/business online.
They want to be known and to share their experiences and knowledge with the world while they market their products and services.
Trust me that you will feel much better and develop yourself if you are willing to share yourself with the world.
Social media like Facebook becomes popular because people want to share their stuffs with the world.
How can you build your professional presence online?
I absolutely recommend a personal branding website as the foundation to build your professional presence online.
