WPATX Deep Dive Discussion 2017 Business Checkup

129 visualizaciones

Publicado el

This is an interactive workshop that has been structured to help you build a purposeful foundation for your business in 2017. Whether we just talked it through with a friend, wrote it down in a business plan, or scribbled it on post-it note — we each had a personal driver to start our Freelance WordPress business.

Do you still have that clarity of purpose? Or, have you lost your “WHY” in pursuit of the “HOW”?
This workshop will help you discover your 'business sweet-spot' — the confluence of your skills and your passion. We will do some short exercises to re-discover your personal WHY. Then discuss how to use your newfound clarity to become the go-to person within your chosen niche. Our goal is to help you attract better quality clients who value your work, respect your process and who are ultimately more profitable for your business.
