Sometimes we underestimate how hard it really is to scale a business. Many of us fail to take a closer look at our business model before we get started and then we are overwhelmed when everything starts to take off all at once.
So, is it possible to scale your business with your sanity intact?
Breanne Dyck, Founder of MNIB Consulting Inc., is here on Episode 164 to reveal a few tips which could help you to scale your business without losing any (or all) of your sanity. Breanne generously shares what this framework looks like and how she helps freelancers and businesses to "scale up without burning out." She shows us how these methods are both sustainable and realistic.
On this episode of the Freelance Transformation Podcast, we get to talk about what it’s like to sell to and work with corporate clients. And when we say corporate clients, that typically means companies that are bigger than what we’d normally consider a small business. They have proper departments, multiple shareholders, and tens, hundreds or thousands of employees. Companies where you’re dealing with multiple stakeholders involved in decisions. And of course, usually bigger budgets.
To speak to this topic is Henrik Becker. Henrik is a marketing automation consultant that very quickly realized that corporate clients are a much better fit for his services than smaller businesses, so he has focused on serving them. On this episode, we will discuss how he found his corporate clients, the reasons why he focuses on this group and some of the strategies around how to successfully work on contracts in the corporate environment.
Being a freelancer can be harder than you think it is. We still dread going to work sometimes, even when we work from home. And there’s still that looming threat of “is this all there is?” If you’re looking for something more in your business, then today’s episode is for you. On this episode, Kevin Monroe talks about how we can all find a purpose for our freelance business.
Kevin Monroe is a leadership consultant and executive coach who helps high achievers find and connect with their purpose in life. Finding a purpose goes beyond just making money for yourself, and it goes well beyond success too. It’s time to stop going through the motions and start working with some intention.
Brian Downard wasn’t always serving one kind of client. He started in app development, but he found his calling in lead generation for home and garden businesses.
Serving one vertical like this is even more specific than finding a niche. Brian talks about what inspired him to focus on this particular vertical and the mistakes and the successes that he's made that ultimately shaped his business and his brand.
Michael Zipursky of Consulting Success has spent nearly two decades building consulting agencies. Over the last ten years, he’s dedicated his time to helping other consultants & freelancers alike to build better businesses. His experience has taught him that having the right mindset is what sets truly successful freelancers apart.
Michael believes that most freelancers are held back because their mind isn’t in the right place. We all know the steps toward success, we can even have the tools to achieve them, but if you’re in the wrong mindset, you’re never going to unlock your true potential. Your mindset will get you in front of the high-quality clients you’re looking for, and help you achieve that freedom and flexibility you want from your career.
