Howdy all! Welcome to episode 283 of The Solopreneur Hour. In this episode, Jessica Shaanan lets us know how her solopreneur journey (you remember her from Episodes 181 and 211) is coming along. She is living proof that intention combined with action equals results!
You’ll also want to tune in for a very special announcement I have for all of you podcasters out there. Check it out on today’s The Solopreneur Hour.
More About The Solopreneur Journey
If you missed her previous visits to the show you can have a listen to Jessica’s backstory here and here. Today we talk about where she’s been, where she is going, the actions she’s taken and what her solopreneur journey has been like so far.
If there’s one thing every solopreneur has in common during their solopreneur journey it’s this: we all must get started. No matter your background or your interests or your business you have to start somewhere. And for most of us we don’t think we’re ready, ever. But Jessica is proof that even when you don’t think you’re ready you can still move forward and make progress.
In fact that’s the thing that’s going to advance your journey faster than anything else: taking action, and moving forward.
In This Episode, You’ll Also Hear:
- What to do when you don’t feel ready.
- Why you don’t need to know anything beyond your next step.
- What is an artist’s date?
- If you have more money than time how should you move forward?
- And how to proceed if you have more time than money.
- And so much more!
When Jessica originally began her journey to become a health and wellness coach her plan was to enroll in the Integrative Institute of Nutrition and follow their program, she’d learn how to become a coach as part of her training.
But what she didn’t expect or plan for was to have clients before she finished; someone approached her about coaching not long after beginning with IIN. She felt like she wasn’t ready, she didn’t know enough – all the normal concerns solopreneurs have at some point in their journey! She chose to embrace the challenge, move forward and step into the role of coach.
And that’s a lesson for all of us: have a plan, get started and be flexible enough to open up to whatever shows up on your solopreneur journey. Part of being a solopreneur is changing, evolving and growing as you and your business expand. New opportunities will open up as you do.
We discuss that as part of Jessica’s path and yours as well by attending events: put yourself in a position for new people and new opportunities to find you. Get yourself to a few events this year and see what happens! Even if you can only make one or two get out there, get connected and get in action. Finding like-minded people at events will take your solopreneur journey in new directions and will inspire you to take action.
Tune in to hear all of that and more on this edition of The Solopreneur Hour. Enjoy and we’ll see you next time.
