When it comes to this noisy world of Internet marketing where everyone seems to be an expert and wants to tell you how you must do something. Actually, one of my biggest pet peeves is the use of the word “correct” when it comes to anything related to marketing YOUR business…there is no CORRECT.
Thankfully, there is someone who stands out amongst the noise and that’s Kelly McCausey. She’s the great motivator of online business owners and helps them create the businesses THEY want, rather than the businesses she thinks they should have. She tells it like it is, but tactfully guides entrepreneurs into making the right decisions for themselves. I’ve known Kelly for 10 years now and she never ceases to amaze me with her amazing energy and ability.
That’s why I was pretty excited when my copy of her Solopreneurs are Smarter in the mail today. I even contributed a chapter to the book, but the work really shows what Kelly is all about.
Here are 3 of my favorite quotes from the book…
The absolute favorite reason I love being a Solopreneur is this: I set my own schedule.
I sleep in, take naps and even work late at night.
The clock doesn’t rule my day; in fact, I rarely set an alarm.
My business exists to serve my life, not the other way around.
We solopreneurs actually have advantages over these giant companies.
We’re light on our feet. We’re in the midst of our market. We can see things big companies can’t and we can take action faster.
There’s no magic dollar figure that reflects success.
There’s no perfect minimal work schedule that shouts freedom.
A smart Solopreneur isn’t driven by someone’s arbitrary benchmark, they plot their own path and choose their own goals.
If you’re looking for a little motivation to create the business YOU want in 2013, I recommend grabbing a copy of Kelly’s book…and hey, check out my chapter while you’re at it. We define our own success and shape our businesses, so we can get there. Don’t let anything stand in your way.
