  1. 1. 40 Tips for Freelancers Ideas Borrowed from Michelle Welsh and Seth Godin
  2. 2. 1) MINDSET
  3. 3. Be willing to Listen. Be Coachable.
  4. 4. We get in our own way. Believe it, accept it, move forward.
  5. 5. No one is going to give you permission. You have a choice. Don't be seduced into thinking otherwise.
  6. 6. “It seems that we spend most of our time in preparation, or circling, or considering.”
  7. 7. “We spend most of our time procrastinating and worrying. STOP.” Lizard Brain
  8. 8.  Create a list of what's holding you back - and work through it.  Escalate your vision ‐ create deadlines for yourself.
  9. 9. All we have is our time. The way we spend our time is our priorities, is our “strategy.” Your calendar knows what you really care about. Do you?
  10. 10. Doing 2/3 of one thing and 2/3 of another Equals Zero.
  11. 11. There are an infinite choices. Pick one. If it fails, there will be another. Very few decisions are irreversible.

  17. 17. Who (or what) can you connect?  Everyone can bridge two people, two ideas, two companies.
  18. 18. “Access to tools is no longer sufficient. Everyone you compete with has access to a camera, a keyboard, a guitar. Just because you know how to use a piece of software or a device doesn't mean that there isn't an amateur who's willing to do it for free, or an up and comer who's willing to do it for less.”
  19. 19. Let's not race to the bottom. (Seth) In our connected world, commodity producers are under intense pressure. The price of anything that's made to a spec, or that responds to an RFP, is instantly known by all buyers. But the problem with the race to the bottom is that you might win. You might make a few more bucks for now, but not for long and not with pride. Someone will always find a way to be cheaper or more brutal than you.
  20. 20. “The race to the top is focused on design and respect and dignity and guts and innovation and sustainability and yes, generosity.” – Seth Godin
  21. 21. NO Learn to say it
  22. 22. RE-DEFINE PROFESSIONAL “you need to develop both skills and a reputation for those skills that make it clear to (enough) people that an amateur solution isn't nearly good enough, because you're that much better and worth that much more.”
  23. 23. “Scarcity is a great thing for those that possess something that's scarce. But when scarcity goes away, you'll need more than that.”
  24. 24. “stand up and do your work, and do it in a way for which there are no substitutes.”
  25. 25. “Remember to think big and embrace abundance.” “Know that the only true scarcity is your resistance to embracing your own true self, your hopes and dreams, your capacity to think big.”
  26. 26. TRIBE “the stuff that changes everything starts on the fringe, captures the imagination of a dozen, who bring along colleagues or friends, and then it's a hundred and then...” - Seth
  27. 27. “People spend their time and attention and money in places that make them feel valued.” http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2012/05/the-reason-the-customer-is-always-right.html
  28. 28. Surround yourself with Like-minded People.
  29. 29. “Stop trying to sell to people you don't know. Start with the people you do.” – Michelle (those dudes on Shark Tank agree)
  30. 30. Celebrate the wins. 
  31. 31. It's OK to ask for help.  “It's impossible to know  all there is to know  about everything that is  involved with running a  business. Find people  who can help and don't  be afraid to admit  ignorance.” -  MW
