If you read the episode title and thought “Yes, I need to burn my business model to the ground and start fresh!” then hit play. Right now.
Laura Pennington Briggs joins me on today’s episode to talk about this very thing.
Laura started out a few years ago as a freelancer and soon began managing a team of people in her business.
Unfortunately, she also discovered that where her journey was leading was not where she wanted to be.
So, she burned her business model to the ground.
A fresh (business) start
Once she realized she didn’t want to manage people, she realized a few other things as well. And took action on them.
That led to the revolutionizing of her business where she fired clients, parted ways with team members and became a hell of a lot more choosy.
Sounds scary, right? But so worth it!
Completing tearing down your business certainly takes a ton of courage! And since Laura has been there, done that, she has some incredibly helpful pointers for fellow freelancers and solopreneurs.
For starters, she shares two major tips that will help you pinpoint your best areas in business. You’re also going to hear about the three things Laura would have done differently when she first started as a solopreneur.
And, we discuss burnout: how to spot it (it’s sneaky!) and some tips to prevent it.
You do not want to miss this episode if you’re a freelancer or a solopreneur! Tune in for a short but full episode.
