Follow up to the previous infographic on your freelance hourly rates

I wanted to let you know that setting a higher freelance fee is better than setting a low one.

First you need to recognize your worth and all you you bring to the table- every single transaction.

Second you need to know that you can start at hundred and drop to 50, but you can’t start at 50 and go to 100.

Remember settimg a low bar for your pricing aka your worth may work as an opener but if you undervalue yourself how can you expect others to value you?

Here is a guaranteed way for you to make money. Figure out two things:      -what you love and 

-what you’re good at, and find the middle ground. 

If you are an awesome photographer and you love to write start a blog on photography. Or you can sell a course online on photography on the same blog. 

And you can also sell your photos to stock photo sites. 

Apply that same scenario as it pertains to you and work at it daily.

Instagram Success, is not SocialEnvy

26 May

So you want to be a boss. 

You see the guys on  IG flashing bling and riding in brabus Mercedes Benz​. And you want to get there, and fast.  So you hit trusty old Google and find that getting followers enmass means you can sell shoutouts and and charge people for all kind of silly favors that add up to big bucks. The question is how do you get the followers? That’s when you find instagress. 

Instagress promises you followers Galore and a guaranteed famous face on Instagram.  For a fee instagress will get you thousands upon thousands of followers. These followers they are Bots. Many of you probably remember when Instagram cut the cord on millions of accounts that had fake followers. Overnight accounts were cut down to their true levels. And the famous people they got cut too. Akon a massive hit in the Millions.  No one with fake followers was safe. Instagram which is owned by Facebook did an exceptional job of exposing the fakes.  Then just recently in 2017 instagress shuttered its doors and with a Twitter apology said they were sorry and that customers could submit for refunds.

The lesson here is that it doesn’t matter if you get fake followers fake comments or fake likes or All the Above-Instagram will find you. And when they do you won’t lose followers or comments or likes. You will lose credibility. 

And that credibility matters more to your brand, to your business, and to your fans, followers, and customers. 

Oh yeah you will lose those followers comments and like that you paid for. As well as the respect you earned from your real followers and the dollars they would have spent with you. 

There is a solution however, which I will cover soon.

Stay tuned.

Lesson Learned- Work Harder!

2 Jan

So I tried a new barber today.

The lady I had cutting my hair switched locations.
Actually she closed her shop and rented a chair.

Then that place sent her elsewhere (did I just rhyme?)
Well, back to the facts.
I took a gamble and ended up with a master barber!
He not only took me right away saving time, but I didn’t need to see the guy who usually does my secondary cut!

Now- yes I’m particular- but my image is part of my branding, and it’s just how I like to look.
This guy was motivated, spoke two languages, and cut hair like a PRO.

What are the lessons here:
-the first barber, ran her business bad.
This led to her losing my wife and I as clients as we couldn’t find her easily.

-the first barber didn’t make sure we could reach her.

– the first barber didn’t make herself irreplaceable.
Wow. Ouch. Yes. I couldn’t keep her as she was all over. Lost my loyalty.

-the new barber was ready.
He saw me come in and met me at the door. So he got my money.

-the new barber did what I usually pay 2 people for – in less time! Nuff said.

-the new barber has 2 jobs.
Being a barber is his 2nd job.
Or should I say he does it after the day job?…
Regardless he met my expectations, and exceeded them.

The lesson here- it isn’t that you need to do double shifts.

The lesson here isn’t that more hours mean more money.

The lesson is you play to your strengths.

-the new barber – he cuts from 6pm to 12am-ish.
That means he is willing to corner the market on men who work day jobs!
He does this 6 days a week.

YOU do the math.

If you can’t explain it your downline doesn’t exist

16 Oct

I’ve done mlm, still do actually.
But if you can’t show people why and how- their daily efforts aren’t going to lead them to riches and or freedom –
You won’t build your downline.

So simple, yet so ground breaking.

Lesson here: do your homework.
