What are you really selling?
You are the product you are selling when you’re self employed. You may still be learning how to be your own boss if you have a home based business. This also applies when you do freelance work from home. Here’s the thing you have to remember. You are selling you.
It doesn’t matter what kind of home based business you have–whether you sell products or services. This applies to online businesses and affiliate sales and MLM.
People buy from people they know, like, and trust.
This is why you have to keep working on how to change your life! Personal growth is not an option if you want to be your own boss.
You can’t be who you were.
- Don’t make the mistake of living in your past. Because your past is over!
- Don’t live from your past either. You’ll be stuck on autopilot and never have any personal growth.
- Don’t beat yourself up for your past. Forgive yourself. Accept your past. And move on.
You have to make peace with your past. You can’t be a captive to it. But you can’t discard it either. Your past is part of who you are.Eric Deeter
Here’s what you have in common with an old Greek ship!
Ancient Greek philosophers debated hotly about the Ship of Theseus. It was a museum piece, kept to remember the hero, Theseus and the battle he fought.
New boards were added to the ship as the old ones rotted over the years. Eventually, all the “original” parts were gone.
“Is this still the Ship of Theseus?” the philosophers asked. “All the parts are new.”
They never did settle on “the answer.” And modern philosophers still ponder over the question. But let’s leave the philosophers to their deep thoughts and move on, OK? This is about you, not some old ship!
Your body is like the Ship of Theseus.
The cells in your body have all been replaced in the last 7 years! Your body constantly rebuilds itself with new cells as the old ones wear out.
But this isn’t what I’m talking about when I say you need to focus on how to change your life. How to be your own boss means you’re managing the growth of your mindset and self improvement.
The cells in your body update automatically. You have to decide that working on personal growth is vital for success in your home based business. Or when you’re doing freelance work from home.
You’re the boss of who you are.
And you have to work on how to be your own boss of who you’ll be in the future. This means you have to have a growth mindset.
Remember, you are the product you sell when you’re self employed.
