The First 6-Months in Review

in Free Agency

I officially started my business on 19-Nov-10 – at least that’s what the State of Iowa says…

During the first couple of months, I spent majority of my time marketing. I signed my first client one month after being in business. If you’re a freelancer or small business owner, you understand how amazing the feeling is. I really felt legitimate. I was IN business for myself.

I’ve learned a LOT along the way and I feel more secure in my abilities as the “Get It Done Girl”.

  • As I gained more clients, I needed to reevaluate how I spent my time. After being unemployed for the majority of 2009, this wasn’t a problem I had experience with. But this process helped me give the best of myself to my clients.
  • I’ve gotten over my “issues” regarding public speaking. I decided that it’s not about me – it’s about how I can help people through my message.
  • I’ve discovered a part of Des Moines that I didn’t know existed and realized that I was being mentored without even knowing it. Central Iowa Bloggers – need I say more?

As a new business owner, my husband and I agreed to review my progress after six months and then decide if this is something that I should continue. It’s an emphatic YES:

Are you where you want to be with your business? Are you helping others through your passion? Where do you want your business to be six months from now? A year from now?
