Note! We are officially halfway through the Solopreneur Success Bundle Week! That means you have just three days left to get this epic deal of 19 products worth $1,504 for just $99. We'd hate for you to miss it...
The Road to Solopreneur Success looks different for each and every one of us. The most powerful thing we can do? Share our stories and shorten the learning curve for everyone around us.
So we turned to our community to share their Road to Solopreneur Success -- the ups, the downs, and the lessons learned as they work toward more celebrations each and every day in their solo businesses.
We are super grateful for what they shared -- and can’t wait for you to learn from them, too. Grab your coffee + a pen, and get ready to take notes from these great reads on day three of our Road to Solopreneur Success:
Solopreneur Success: How I Built a Community of 3,000 Loyal Subscribers - Carrie Smith, Careful Cents
Carrie (a Bundle contributor!) learned quick that building community was the key to her success as a “solo” business owner -- and when she didn’t immediately find one she felt connected to, she went out and created it.
Our favorite quote: “I interact on Twitter and reply to comments and share feedback. Not because I’m trying to get something from them, but because I actually care!”
Starting Something? You Need to Be Willing to be a Beginner - Hannah Braime, Becoming Who You Are
Hannah’s reminder that we all start as a beginner -- sometimes over and over again -- is something we can all stand to hear. And her process of how we progress makes you feel good about getting started.
Our favorite quote: “The fact is everyone starts as a beginner. And, it’s only through being willing to embrace being a beginner that we can find creative fulfilment and joy.”
Why I Do Not Use Facebook for my Business - Katrin Anger, inspirITing
When Katrin started her business, she knew she’d have one issue: she couldn’t get on the same page as Facebook when it came to ethics. Neglecting the social media platform for marketing and networking was a risk, but one she hasn’t looked back on taking. As we say: business isn’t one-size-fits-all.
Our favorite quote: “...taking a stand for values does come with a price sometimes.”
27 Ways to Build Community Around Your Dream - Ashley Beaudin, Firework People
Ashley (also one of our Bundle contributors!) knows that a dream is hard to sustain without a community around it -- and she wants to help you build yours. She shares 27 things -- from hand-written letters to hashtags -- that you can do right now.
Our favorite quote: “Let's not settle for loneliness. Let's not settle for competition without any collaboration. Let's not settle for independence without relationship.”
How to Get Off the Self-Pity Train - Shenee Howard, Hey Shenee
Ever finish something, and instead of celebrating, you just move on to the next ten things on your to-do list? Yeah, Shenee’s been there -- and hates the feeling of just simply surviving instead of thriving. So, she’s ending that self-pity train, and wants you to, as well -- with these five steps. (Oh -- and she just happens to be in the Bundle, too.)
Our favorite quote: “And when you can’t see the light, you can’t move forward in anything.”
5 Tools for Solopreneur Success - Julienne DesJardins
When we start a business, we’re often excited by the thrill of it all -- and then comes the overwhelm. Julienne shares the feeling -- and her top five tools for setting your solo business up for success -- in this post.
Our favorite quote: “It has been so helpful to me to have a sense of community when launching out on my own.”
All of these posts were written as part of the Road to Solopreneur Success blog tour, promoting the Solopreneur Success Bundle: a roundup of e-courses, e-books, and subscriptions designed to help you succeed in all aspects of your solopreneur biz. Your chance to grab over $1,500 in products at just $99 is only here from September 14-18th -- learn more and get yours now!
We think this deal is pretty freakin’ spectacular, but don’t just take it from us:
Carrie, of Careful Cents, puts it in a way we can’t beat: “Seriously. Imagine if you only had to push the "buy" button one time, and save yourself over $1,400. Would you do it? Duh! Of course you would.” She’s also calling it “the only investment you need to make for the rest of the year!” Yep -- it’s that good!
