It’s been quite awhile since Dawn and I have done one of these shows together, and I’ve missed having her on! She’s like our favorite pair of gloves, a perfect fit. And our perfect fit has returned for episode 288 of The Solopreneur Hour.
More About How To Find Your Swing (Solopreneur Coaching)
For those of you new to these shows, the Find Your Swing episodes are all about YOU! You write in with your background, hobbies, passions and potential business ideas and we read them on air, then give you our feedback.
We’ll help you figure out what your next step is if you’re currently in business, or if you need ideas on how to meld your skills and interests we’ll give you some of those too. In short we’ll help you find your swing with some solopreneur coaching.
On today’s show we hear from several of you, including a listener with a background in exercise science, a flash animator who has made a career in Hollywood, and someone with a tech blog already underway…plus a few more!
In This Episode, You’ll Also Hear:
- What’s happening with the main co-host of the show?
- The importance of avatars, no matter how successful you are.
- When do you actually know enough to start your business?
- How to use modeling properly, without being a clone.
- A stellar business idea we give away.
- And so much more!
Our listener from Hollywood is currently a flash animator and has been a caricature artist as well as an animator for Disney. He is truly a creative artist, and most of his hobbies and passions revolve around guitars. We have multiple pieces of advice for him today: create a course or product showing people how to make custom guitars, or teach them something with an online course to bring in passive income.
Another suggestion I make for our flash animator friend is to have a podcast interviewing people like him who have made a career in Hollywood in unusual or niche jobs. It’s a great way to tap into that market that wants to work in Hollywood, but not necessarily as an actor, director or producer.
We also hear from a listener with a tech blog. He’s been blogging for years and has a tremendous amount of content. I recommend he double down on what he already has built, get some tips from Copyblogger and grow his audience. He should post regularly, create an actual schedule and also generate a wider readership by guest blogging on other tech sites. Dawn recommends he go through the process of creating an avatar so he can specifically target his people for a higher return on his time and efforts.
I’d also like to see him spruce up his current site, bring on a professional web site designer and clean up the site a bit. He should have a Contact Me or Work With Me page while he’s changing things around. What he has is good, now with a few adjustments he can make it even better and really focus on growing and monetizing his audience.
Those are just a few of the people we hear from on today’s Find Your Swing! Tune in to hear the rest on this edition of The Solopreneur Hour. Thanks for being here, and we’ll see you next time!
