Does the amount you charge for your service match your self esteem?

Whatever the reason, it can be really challenging to motivate yourself to work on the days when it all feels too hard.

So what can you do to get your mojo back?

How to sell your product…

In my recent blog titled “Discover the product in your business” we talked about how you can identify a product in your business.

But creating your product is only the first half of the process. Getting it online and marketing it is the other half and it is just as important!

You can have the best product in the world but if no one knows it exists your time has been completely wasted. So what do you need to do to start making money from your product?

Discover the product in your business

I’m a big believer in developing a product that you can ‘sell while you sleep’ as a way of building and diversifying your service-based business.  In this two part blog, I’m going to firstly show you how you can identify your product and then in Part 2 we’ll talk about how to market that product once it’s developed.

So let’s get started. What do you need to do to find your product?

Why should I be networking? I don’t have the time

We know that networking is important (or at least that’s what we hear), but often we struggle to find the time to attend events, or it doesn’t “feel right” to be pushing ourselves onto others, or we feel intimidated by attending events.
