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
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?
time is the speed at which the past decays – Cloud Atlas
Actually listening to the soundtrack as I write this…
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell was a fantastic, thought provoking read, and watching the movie afterwards was like being given a gift tied with a bow. 6 lives spanning across centuries, lives there were lived over and over again, dealing with the same issues of the future of modern society and what future, if any, it will come to. The book brought up many social-economic issues we face today, using up our resources, creating a land that is unlivable, power fighting against power, war, slavery, technology, business, this book, as one of my college professors would say, “rang a bell” in me.
Do you ever get that feeling, that you’ve been in a situation before, that you’ve lived another life, and pieces won’t fit together? Do you ever feel that change seems like an enormous possibility, and one person shaping the world is too much to ask. Maybe we are too small for this world…I used to think that, until my lost motivation returned…
“He who would do battle with the many headed hydra of human nature must pay a world of pain & his family must pay it along with him! & and only as you gasp your dying breath shall you understand, your life amounted to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean!”
“Yet what is any ocean but a multitude of drops?” – Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell
