Self-employment isn’t just about starting a business. It’s a mindset and a lifestyle, one that requires a change in the thoughts and habits surrounding how you use your money, time and energy.
The first and most important step of self-employment is self-assessment.
Your life is the sum of your habits. You are what you do. Your habits are guided by your thoughts and your subconscious mind.
Learning about yourself requires identifying your behavioral patterns through a process of self-experimentation. Your experiments will show you how to change your habits for how you spend your money, time and energy, so you can design your ideal lifestyle and work on your terms.
Begin your process of self-experimentation now by submitting your email below to start receiving weekly self-assessment challenges that will help you find your purpose, increase your personal productivity and boost your energy!
The First Step of Self-Employment
It’s not getting an EIN, opening a business checking account or even having a viable business idea. It’s assessing your first and most important resource: yourself.
It also happens to be the most overlooked step because know one ever taught you how to really learn about yourself. There is so much to know about your mindset, habits and behavioral patterns that can and will have a dramatic impact on the development of your business.
Just a few of the things worth learning about include:
- How you spend your money.
- How you spend your time.
- How you build and maintain relationships.
- How you manage your energy.
- Your ability to be creative and to create.
- Your emotional intelligence.
- Your values.
- Your personal requirements for being productive.
- Your strengths.
- How you deal with your fears.
Learning all the best business practices and tactics in the world will not sustain your motivation and make you successful if you don’t get clear on your values, needs and abilities first.
Self-experimentation is the most effective method for getting this clarity. It gets you out of your head by making you take action!
Taking the time to assess yourself will give you the ability to choose the business model and tactics best suited for you, not just what works for other people.
