An exercise and a challenge

1. An exercise

Decide on a financial target. It could be to sell one product, get one day’s work, secure repeat work with a particular client, sell out an event. Whatever it is, write it down and decide how you’ll reward yourself once it’s achieved. Something that makes you feel really good. You deserve it. So write out the below sentence and fill in the gaps.

When I’ve managed to achieve … I’ll reward myself by …

2. A challenge

I’d like you to push yourself out of your comfort zone by pitching yourself to do some work, sharing your idea for a product on social media, or – if it’s ready to go – having a go at flogging one. Again, there’s no pressure to set up and launch your final business here – it’s about putting out feelers and starting to think about how it could work, financially.
