Before I peace out for the weekend, I wanted to share 2 #protips with you!
My #1 tip to those just starting OTO or the freelancing business in general is FIND YOUR IDEAL CLIENT!! I honestly blew this off when I first started (which I TOTALLY should not have done!) 🤦🏼♀️ I knew I didn’t want to leave my babies to go to work anymore, and I knew that I needed money. That was pretty much it.
Needless to say, I almost never turned down a job lead unless I completely had no idea how to accomplish what they were asking. Eventually, we ended up parting ways because things just weren’t jiving, and our expectations of work-life-balance were NOT in line.
Come to find out, my ideal client is a mom between ages 20-40 whose kids are somewhere between the ages of newborn to middle school. She understands the importance of family-time so she is ready to outsource things in her business without micro-managing. I especially love lifestyle, special needs and food bloggers who want to grow their business using Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.
So again, don’t be like me 🙈 Find your ideal client and settle on your niche!! 👊🏻 Now, on to a fun #momtip: hype up all the things!! 🤗😬 Every Friday after I pick my son up from school, we have some sort of “surprise”. Like I’m telling you he starts talking about this on Tuesday 😂 These awesome things to do usually consist of going to the park, getting a snow cone, running by the dollar store so that we can make s’mores after dinner, splashing in puddles...super simple and relatively cheap but guess what?! HE. LOVES. IT.
So Mamas...hype up the little things and soak in those simple moments because they are only little for so long ❤️ Enjoy your weekend!! 🍻☀️😁
