Sample Chapter: Solopreneurs Are Light On Their Feet
Ever try to explain what you do to someone outside of the internet marketing world? It’s not easy.
We all have this one person in our lives who stands ready to nix every idea we come up with. For one of my new coaching clients, it’s her mother.
When she explained her online business plans, her mother shook her head, did this ‘tsk tsk tsk’ thing with her mouth and launched into why her ideas were all wrong.
Her primary reason was this: “Honey, do you know how many websites there are out there on the web? Do you realize how much money these big internet companies have to spend? Do you know how many employees they have? How are you ever going to make a dent in the internet? You’re just one little person. You don’t stand a chance.”
My client came to me, absolutely crushed. All the wind taken out of her sails. As she shared her conversation with her mom, I wanted to reach out and give her mom a pop upside the head.
I listened, I considered… and I told her (with all respect) her mom was full of bull.
Sure, the internet is massive. There are millions of sites. It is populated by massive companies with big bankrolls and large staff counts. It was true back in 2002 when I got started and it has been true every year since.
Yet, here I am. Making a living on the internet.
The whole idea that one person can’t accomplish much on the internet is simply ignorant.
We solopreneurs actually have advantages over these giant companies.
We’re light on our feet. We’re in the midst of our market. We can see things big companies can’t and we can take action faster.
Yes, on a tiny scale compared to what they could do – but that’s okay!
I can’t guess how tiny my business is percentage wise in the grand scheme of the World Wide Web, yet I have carved out my corner and profited nicely.
Don’t let people rain on your parade or make you feel like you can’t do it.
Without a single exception, every person I’ve met who TRULY wanted to support themselves online and was willing to do what is necessary, has done it.
I wrote Solopreneurs are Smarter because I want to inspire more folks just like the client mentioned in this chapter. If you really have a vision for running a great online business – I’m certain you CAN!
I didn’t write this alone- I’m thrilled to have guest chapters from three awesome solopreneurs I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with:
Alice Seba, Contentrix.com
Alice loves helping online business owners get more results from their content. Whether it’s ghostwriting services, private label rights content services or her content marketing blog, Alice is there to help you turn words into profits.
Lynette Chandler, TechBasedTraining.com
Lynette is a geek who loves marketing and has a knack for helping others understand it. Lynette is actively developing tools that help businesses grow. She also trains freelancers so they too can provide technical support services and get paid well doing so.
Christina Lemmey, MultiMediaVA.com
Christina is a Virtual Assistant who has specialized in multi media support services, helping clients make the most of audio and video elements in their businesses.
There’s one more person I’ve partnered with that I really wanted to have a hand in this book and that’s Nicole Dean, NicoleontheNet.com. I asked Nicole if she’d write the Foreword for me and I’m so tickled that she agreed!
A nip from Nicole’s Foreword:
“If you’re not yet in business for yourself, you will get a good overview of what can be – if you choose the path of the Solopreneur. Being a Solopreneur isn’t for everyone, so this book can help you to assess what it takes to succeed and whether or not you wish to pursue this path.”
No amount of money earned through my business has been as satisfying or as valuable as the friendship I enjoy with these amazing women.
Whether you’re a successful solopreneur now or have dreams of becoming one – I know Solopreneurs are Smarter will spark fresh vision for what you can build for your future.
Read my book and I bet you realize just how smart YOU are!
