If You Don’t Know What You Want for Your Business, How Can You Get It?

Originaly published on AllBusiness.com

The other day, I was chatting with someone I hadn’t seen in a while. She asked how my business was doing.

“Business? Er, it’s fine.”

My reply shocked me, because normally I grin and say, “Really well, thanks!” But lately I’ve been feeling a little adrift in terms of what I want for my business, and therefore business hasn’t been booming like normal. I realize it’s my own damn fault.

I’m a big believer in setting intentions and making what you want a reality. I do it in my personal life, so why wasn’t I doing it for my business? Can you relate?

5 Things We Micropreneurs Really Want for Christmas

Originally published on AllBusiness.com

As I’m making my holiday wish list on Amazon and sending it to my mother (Don’t judge! Don’t you wish your mom still sent you fuzzy socks for Christmas?), I’m thinking about those less tangible things I’d love someone to give me that are perfect for a micropreneur like myself (someone who operates a business on a very small scale).

If Santa is reading this, here are the things this micropreneur hopes to find in her stocking on Christmas morning:

On Losing a Great Employee

One of the biggest headaches for any business owner — but particularly a micropreneur, who does the bulk of the work but may have a freelancer or two — is finding and keeping good talent. I’ve worked with a dozen freelance writers over the past 13 years with Egg, and I know how hard it is to find not only talented writers but also people who are reliable and willing to work with me for years.

How to Be a Kick-Ass #GirlBoss (or #BoyBoss)

I’m not sure why so many businesses — large and small — fall into the same patterns and processes…and then wonder why they don’t work. Meetings. Customer service scripts. Invoicing processes. All of these things can be dull as lead…but they don’t have to be.

Today I want to inspire you to think outside of the corporate box about how your business should be run. Remember: you’re the #GirlBoss or #BoyBoss. You aren’t beholden to how other companies do things. Make it your own! Set your own rules.
