About once a month I email my list with ‘How may I serve you?’ as the subject line. It’s my opportunity to take a break from teaching and marketing and return to the idea of serving others. It also reminds me of how fortunate I am to have this amazing online business, where I choose when and where I work and spend most of my time doing what I love each day.
Who is your ideal client? How can you best serve them? When you are able to answer these two questions you will be on your way to amazing experiences. With social media bringing our target audience into our homes 24/7, we are able to reach out to the exact people we wish to serve.
Spend some time today making a list of what you know, what you love to do, and how you wish to spend your time. Then think about the people who could benefit from what you have to offer. This is the beginning of your online empire and home based business. If you think about it, it really isn’t fair to anyone if you spend time doing things you don’t really love to do. You are taking that task or activity away from someone who loves doing it.
We are living in a new economy, and the rules have changed. You do not need to work 40 hours a week at a job you do not enjoy. It’s time for everyone to become an entrepreneur, the way many of us did as children. When I cut the neighbor’s lawn, raised gerbils to sell to the local pet store, and scraped barnacles off my uncle’s boat, I was learning about earning money under my own terms and conditions. We can all do the same thing now, so figure out what you love to do, who needs what you know, and how this will earn you money.
Use the phrase ‘How may I serve you?’ as your starting point.
