This week, I'm new all over again.
I'm embarking on Jon Acuff's "30 Days of Hustle" to help prod me into doing the stuff of running a business that I'm not a pro at. Stuff like reaching out to former clients with emails, asking to reconnect. Stuff like trying to set up coffees with potential new clients to see how we at The Well can help them succeed. Stuff like COLD CALLING and SALES and all the other terrifying words that haunt introverts' dreams.
It's got me feeling like I'm new. Fumbling. Stumbling. Second-guessing this "running my own business" thing and wishing for a desk job.
Here's my BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) for the month: Connect with 5 potential clients, and generate one new one by 1/31/2016.
Now that I've said it, I'm hoping it will be a little easier. At the very least, now I've GOTTA do it. Here's hoping I'll be a little more proficient as 2016 unfolds.
Here I come, year. What are ya, new?
