Had 'Mondayitis', 'Humpday' or said 'ThankGodIt'sFriday' then read on...
Working for someone else has it's benefits, stable pay, regular holidays and you can leave the stress at the office. But...you don't have one thing that matters most. Control of your time.
Are you able to...
- Leave the office when you feel like it?
- Work with people who lift you up and inspire you?
- Do the type of work that fulfils you and makes you jump out of bed each day?
If the answer is no, perhaps it's time to consider a change.
Change is scary, but let's face the facts. The days of secure and long-term employment are behind us.
Over 50% of the workforce in the USA is contingent, (contracted not employed), and the trend is escalating in Australia. You are only one restructure away from being retrenched or 'downsized'. Artificial Intelligence, robotics and outsoucing job overseas is increasing dramatically.
So what's the alternative?
Be Your Own Boss
What does freedom look like? It looks like being your own boss. You can still be employed but the difference is you are in control of your career, not your company.
What does freedom look like?
...freedom to see your kids when you want too
...freedom to work with people who share your values
...freedom to do the work you enjoy the most
In reality, we are all independent consultants selling our services for a price; it doesn't really matter if it's for one company (job) or many (business owner). The result is the same, you get paid for the level of value you add to the businesses you serve. However, one big difference is the control of your time.
Building your personal brand is the best investment you can make in your career.
How do you answer the question - "What do you do?"
If you answer with your job title, how will you progress? How will someone see your full value?
Understanding your core value proposition and developing quality online branding assets around your value is the path to Being Your Own Boss, controlling your career and having freedom of time.
After working with hundreds of corporate workers seeking more from their career, we developed a unique 12 step system to create your time freedom.
We call this system...e-ttraction = digital attraction.
The first step in the process is to understand what your compelling value proposition is and how to articulate it clearly. Your personal pitch.
On Monday, May 28th 6:30pm in Melbourne, I will be running a Pitch workshop to help you start the e-ttraction journey. Click here to see the details.
My mission is to empower everyone to follow their passion and work in a career they love. Each week I will be sharing parts of this method and examples of how it can benefit you so follow the journey with me to get ownership of your time.
