Running your own creative biz?
I’d like to see your business card. I bet it says something like “President/Owner/Founder/Marketing/PR/Creative/Web Designer/Blogger/Billing.”
At least that’s what it should say, ’cause you do just about every darn thing by yourself. You’re a one-man band. You’re a whiz. You’re…over-extended?
At times it can be fun & fulfilling to wear all the hats. But sometimes your head just gets hot.
Ya need more heads.
Quick, don’t think hard about this: what could you use some help with?
- finding guest contributors for your blog
- figuring out how the heck to use Twitter
- taking photos for your Etsy shop
Ok, now think a little harder. Where else could you use some help?
- picking up the kids on Wednesday afternoons
- filing quarterly taxes
- yard work
- having healthy snacks on hand
- taking old stuff to Goodwill
You may be willing and able to pay for help with some things on your list. Go for it. Peace of mind is a wonderful investment.
If you’re not up for parting with your pennies, get a little creative with enlisting help.
Maybe you can trade services or time for what you need. Can a spouse, friend, or neighbor help you out? Can you do something for them in return?
This week, think about what you need – things that would free up your time, mind, and spirit to do your best work – and ask someone to help you out. Paid or not, help is available. Just ask!
