Genuine Connections = ⬆️ Sales

I just had an incredible conversation in the LinkedIn DMs with someone that I really look up to.

He posted a story and I sent him a quick message related to what he was talking about in the story.

This turned into an amazing GENUINE conversation about our businesses and goals.

The intention of this conversation wasn’t to sell.
I wasn’t spamming him.

Instead, I was building a real relationship.

We are now talking about potentially collaborating and doing business together.

Want more sales? Create relationships.

Be a good person.

Be a good person.

Not because you want people to see you as a good person.
Not because it’s good for your brand (although it is).
Not because you want praise.

Do it because it’s the right thing to do.

Be kind
Be honest
Be positive
Be humble
Just be the best person you can be.

Are you afraid to grow?

😱 Are you afraid to grow? 📈

Sometimes I am. The past month has been insane! I have about 10 web design projects that I'm working on, and it just keeps getting busier and busier.

While this is a good problem to have, it can be stressful... I'm at the point where I've decided to do 2 things:

1. I'm going to start charging more. This way I can take on less, higher-profile clients.
2. I'm going to start bringing in people to help grow and scale my business.

That's scary though!

Up to this point, my business has been all me. I'm a freelancer. If I fail, it's just me.
If I succeed, it's just me.
Bringing people in creates opportunities for growth, but also more pressure. Now, I'll be responsible for others.

Anyway, wish me luck! :)

Is it possible to be inauthentic precisely because you are trying to be authentic?

Is it possible to be inauthentic precisely because you are trying to be authentic?
