A day in the life of…

Choose your Business Model

Posted on: August 16, 2013


Welcome to Day 11 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge!

This challenge has been an excellent experience so far, I’m learning, actively growing and able to expand my knowledge. Now to get down to the nitty gritty:

Which business model is best for you and what one revenue stream is most feasible?

Yesterday I discussed my two key options for streams of revenue. Today I’m narrowing it down to just one and explaining why. As Natalie discusses in today’s post the two most viable business options are selling yourself vs. selling others. I know that sometimes I tend to sell myself short and not highlight my skills as effectively as I could. However selling myself and my expertise is certainly something I can stand behind and as projects and clients come into place, I’ll have a clear idea of how effectively I’ll be able to promote the project based on my skill set.

That behind said the one revenue stream which will work best for my business model is active. Why? The hands on approach of interacting with others through coaching, trainings, seminars or one-on-one sessions will work great with my personality. As a extrovert I get most of my energy from being around others and working closely with them to ensure success.  I recently took a work compatibility test and received my strengths card via Good.co

Good.Co Strengths Card

Taking the test and reading through my score was an excellent way to put business and my work ethic into perspective. It helped me identify the places where I can increase my skills and take a look at the places where my personality type could pull me off track.

What are you strengths which work best with your business model?

Though near the center I lean towards introversion, though I’m a good communicator and excelled in that area in college. I have a penchant for organization and I’m creative. Somewhere, in a buried file, I have all the personality testing that’s been done of me over the years. Basically, the more writing involved the better, the less math the better. 🙂

I think it’s hard for introverted people to sell themselves, as they are naturally shy. Rather than choosing to do that, I like to concentrate on helping others, which my children’s books do.

It’s great that you’ve found your niche! I think there is a way for everyone to share whether introverted or extroverted.

Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
