Sometimes we continue doing things the same way we have always done them not recognizing that our best work is just under the surface. Our best work comes out of our failures, disappointments, and challenges. As a solopreneur, our best work is always evolving at the intersection of our innate strengths, experience, expertise, and growth.
21 ways of bringing your best work into the world.
- It is your thing and it is good. Believe in it.
- Name your thing clearly and simply.
- Allow yourself to recognize and trust your inner voice. Notice when you are paying attention to other voices with more weight than your own.
- Understand your strengths and sharply define your role vs those of your collaborators.
- Give yourself permission to work within the boundaries of your strength. It is not limiting or selfish. It is better for you and your clients.
- The wider you go in your work the less you are in your zone of genius.
- Recognize when you need to give up what no longer works for you.
- You will evolve and your work will change, sometimes unexpectedly. Let beauty guide you.
- Hard to understand services and fuzzy value propositions will hold you back from doing your best work. Translate your work into simple offers. Focus on needs and desires of your ideal client.
- When your work is hard to articulate there’s an underlying resistance to commitment and fear that what you want to do isn’t possible. Believe in the thing that seems impossible and watch the complexity drop away.
- Develop creative thinking practices of noticing, watching, listening.
- Notice when your work sparks a sense of play and curiosity. Honor that part. Develop it.
- Don’t spread yourself too thin.
- Make your work practical.
- Focus on results. Be honest about what works and what doesn’t work for you. It is always a results game.
- Create a system to bring clients into the conversation you want to have.
- Develop your methodology. Create processes in everything you do.
- Get clear on the type of client relationship you want to have and design everything around that.
- Initiate the right type of client relationship by creating offers that are aligned with the work you really want to do.
- Stay within the realm of your personal experience. Speaking from your own experience draws the interest of your prospects.
