There is a distinct difference between building a business and empire, and having a hobby that you enjoy.
If you are a blogger, social media influencer, podcaster, you-tuber - are you creating an empire from this?
Because you 100% can be, if you're not already!
I am here to tell you how!
Some questions for you to answer;
- Sometimes or always
- Planned or impulsive?
- Consistent or sporadic
- Call to action or just to show up?
To create a business of your dreams and an empire you can be proud of you, and no longer be seen as a hobby you need to adopt a few simple mind-set shifts.
1. Show up consistently
This has to be taken seriously and you must dedicate time and energy to your social media and platforms.
Schedule time to show up for your lives, or post content or shoot pictures or videos.
You cannot be swayed by other plans and you must stick to your plans - otherwise, you are already telling yourself that this isn't as important as you want it to be.
2. Tell people what you are doing and WHY
The people around you may not be doing what you are doing and may not understand it. So you need to tell them.
What are you working towards? Why are you doing this?
By telling others, you are also;
Speaking it into existence
Holding yourself to account
Taking this seriously
3. Be brave
Dont do what everyone else is doing. By following the crowd, you become the crowd.
Take risks and show up in ways that others in your field are not. Be the shining light and stand out! This is key.
You want to be seen as THE lady, not one of the ladies.
4. Set goals for yourself and work towards achieving them
Remember this isn't just for fun. This is a hobby.
This is your future.
So set yourself goals and hold yourself to account to reach them.
5. Self-promo (another post on this later too!)
Reach out to people. Get yourself out there.
Email, DM, Inbox, connect with other influencers and platform gurus. The only way for people to see you, is to show up and be seen!
Get yourself connecting and reach out to new people weekly, if not daily!
Remember - this is for your empire!
