Ep 8. The top secret for starting a successful creative business
Show Notes

It’s been 1 year since I started my coaching business! I've got so much to celebrate, and now is the perfect time to reflect on all the lessons I've learned from working with other creatives. In this episode, I'm going to reveal my top secret to starting my own business and becoming successful on my own terms, so that you can apply it to your own business and creative practice.

Key highlights of this episode:

  • I share my story of how I started coaching 
  • My top secret in starting my business and be successful in my own term 
  • Why is it counterintuitive to set an arbitrary timeline for your business's success?
  • The importance of intention and directionality on planning your business 
  • I’m sharing the bucket approach and other practical tips in implementing intentionality and directionality of your creative business 

Key Takeaways:

  • When we set a fixed destination and arbitrary timeline for achieving our goals, we become very rigid and anxious on meeting the deadline that we forget to enjoy the process. 
  • Focus on key strategies and pillars rather than task-oriented goals to plan your creative practice because that will allow you to be flexible.
