Treat your business like it’s a client

Emjae Williams, Write Headspace

"Treat your business like it’s a client. Especially if you have another job or side hustle. When you’re just getting started, it’s easy to put your business on the back burner or do things ‘when you get to it’ but often we never get around to it. So, schedule days or blocks of time when you focus solely on your business.

Make it a one-person business meeting in a coffee shop if that helps. I have a scheduled weekly meeting for myself where I review how the week has gone, what is upcoming, and what skills I might need to brush up on.

If you need more external support, join a coworking group. Regularly joining co-working sessions helped me get an email challenge created in a couple of weeks. You can find free and paid groups that offer that kind of support or start one with people within your circle who need similar support.

But the most important tip is to treat your business like an actual business. If you have an off day or an off week - get back to it. Give yourself the same compassion you'll offer your clients or students."
