The Ultiimate Guide to a Freakin' Bright Future!

Business slacking up a bit? Projects hiding out? Cash flow slowing down?
This spells like a sad, sad day in freelancing existence.
Oil that baby up with some of these self-and-biz building tricks laid out for you in the most informal way possible!
PLAY INTRO!


Alright, this month's theme is called BREAKING BARRIERS. When things aren't working out towards a bright business future, then it's time for a plan change. You can't make any outcome any different by doing the same things over and over., right? So it's time to BITE THE BULLET and GIVE YOURSELF A BOOST!
(Do you see the B plays going on here? You did? Heee... thanks!)

Like they always say, change begins within yourself. Going a little zen here, let's do just that. Check out your anatomy and craft the changes from there. Ready?

STEP ONE: BRAINS. YOU'RE A WORK IN PROGRESS. ALWAYS.
You can't sit on your skill set and say, "Yeah, I'm amazing." Sure, that worked for a while. But times are changing, the world is turning. In the middle of all this excitement, believe me, stagnating isn't cool. What you have to do is feed that brain. Soak it up in new knowledge. If you're good at writing and active in social media --then, how about learning the ropes of content creation and social media management? Beefing up your skill set expands your services and pulls in new demand. Oooh... I see LinkedIn additions!

STEP 2: BALLS. COMFORT ZONING IS BORING.
So you're used to operating within a certain client circle and it has worked for you for a good while. But if you've done great, then who's to say you can't do greater? Who's to say you can't flap those wings and fly South where the grass is quite possibly greener? In other words, if the local market isn't giving you the usual goods, hike up those balls, and go bold. Try your hand in the international playing field. Why not?! I mean, seriously, with how technology is going at a neck-breaking pace, you can even get business from Mars! Uhm, just make sure those Martians pay well.

STEP 3: BADBUTT. KICK ASS OR DON'T KICK AT ALL.
This doesn't need to be said. But because my heart beats for Captain Obvious, I'll say it anyway. Always work with passion. P-A-S-S-I-O-N! Was that hammered down enough? Have that 'Nothing leaves this bake shop half-baked' mentality. Breathe fire! Especially if you're embarking into that great big unknown world of business, you have to let it all out and perform to the utmost fullest. Make every output feel like your last. Sounds exhausting, doesn't it? But, honey, these are hard times and you're turning tragedy into opportunity. This road ain't easy street. And you're gonna like it!

Keep to these self-changing steps and even with this freelancing drought, you're gonna do fine. Heck, you're gonna do better!
How's that song go again?
