No one is really a Solopreneur
Exactly a year ago I was in the middle of the Swiss mountains, enjoying a beer and getting drunk on the unbelievable landscape that surrounded me.
That trip was the gift I gave myself for my 30th birthday. Travelling through Europe as a celebration sounds good, doesn’t it?
Everyone likes to do special things for their birthday. Well, most people at least!
This year though, I wanted to try something different for my birthday celebration (which is today!): I wanted to give thanks.
Well, after I came back from that unforgettable trip I decided that I wanted a change in my business.
Mind you, I had a successful business at the moment that allowed me -among other things- to make expensive travels just because I think they are more fun than traditional Birthday parties.
And yet I wasn’t really fulfilled with what I was doing. I wanted to help people to be the writers of their own destiny, but I was just helping companies make money by selling products.
Starting this new venture meant that I had to learn a whole bunch of new things. It was almost starting from scratch.
So this year, instead of going on a new adventure to a different country, I want to give thanks to all the amazing entrepreneurs that are helping me grow in my new business with their courses, content, and overall helpful amazing predisposition.
Thanks for helping me -directly or not- to create a business I can be proud of.
Without any particular order:
Krista is a Strategic WordPress developer specializing in designer collaborations. She gave me the chance to write my very first guest post for her blog, where she talks about online business & blogging.
She is the co-founder of Coded Creative; and hosts the Intentional Blogging Group on Facebook, where you can participate in challenges to grow your blog and website.
As a Business Coach for Beginning + Budding Infopreneurs, Bailey is a fountain of knowledge about how to take what you know, and leverage it to help more people through infoproducts.
I met her through her 2016 Infopreneur Summit.
Bailey is great at connecting people (including me) and interacting with her is always a pleasure! When she is not busy giving Ted Talks, you can find her in the Infopreneur Community.
Chanel is a Business Strategist and Clarity Coach for freedom driven, legacy building entrepreneurs. My very first live broadcasting appearance was in her amazing Facebook Group, The Coaching Collective.
She is constantly sharing her knowledge there and in other groups, and her upbeat personality is contagious!
The adorable Kayla teaches engaging, actionable courses & workshops on marketing, social media, blogging & online community building. She is also the founder of Create Lounge, and hosts the #createlounge Twitter chat: the most memorable tweet chat I’ve ever participated in.
Interacting with her over Twitter is always a treat!
This woman is pure fire! She is a personal brand & business development strategist that shares her vast knowledge through her Facebook group, The Business Behind the Brand; and her weekly Periscopes. Her content is the motivator behind projects to come in my business (stay tuned for that!).
Of course, I couldn’t leave out my greatest supporter of them all: my partner in life, Camilo. He is a very talented illustrator that enjoys making people laugh, and supports me in my day-today craziness (personal and business). I couldn’t do this without him!
(Pssst! He is taking commissions, go check out his Instagram!)
