Jeffrey Shaw: Crafting your best self-employed life
Transitioning to a self-employed life isn’t easy, especially if you’ve been in a corporate role for years. Most of us want to get back more control over our lives. So rather than the Great Resignation, it’s a positive choice towards a new lifestyle. But the reality is that it’s hard to pull off. You have to make many more choices, develop a business, a brand and then there’s all of the supporting machinery you’ve been used to having on a plate (for all of its bureaucracy).
How do you craft a great self-employed life? Jeffrey Shaw should know, having spent his life self-employed since the age of 14. He now coaches small businesses.
In this podcast find out how to:
- Design the personal ecosystems you need to support a growing business.
- Enrol your customers — rather than marketing to them.
- Marry woo-woo with the wallet.
- Look after your mental health.
- Make difficult choices.
The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
