⚙️ Autonomy for some people is considered to be having a lot of money, a lot of time or having no boss.
🔧 To achieve autonomy you have to be a master at your core skill set. The core skill set are skills that you already possess. Increasing them or using them, can bring you autonomy without learning something else. Or learning something else in order to achieve your autonomy.
📘 A skill set can be acquired by using some time in the beginning of your career that’s less autonomous. It can be considered as a typical job or having less automation tools.
🔥 For entrepreneurs or people working for themselves autonomy is hard and has a lot of pitfalls. But I believe when they rise and step forward, they become stronger!
📱 A business could have a variety of niches to choose from. But people have 1 niche that is the most important. These people is your business market. At first they are not customers, they are visitors, leads or friends.
💫 Your “universe” of people must be in balance. Same interests, similar minds and that relate to each other. And most importantly to YOU. Surprisingly the word affiliate means to be related!
😍 Just relate, be-friend, understand and acknowledge people is the key. Offer to everyone what they need. They may need your words, life’s advice, business advice, or even your salutation. In solitude they may need just to know that someone cares.
Resilience is the capacity and fortitude to recover quickly from difficulties, like changing job market or being fired.
🔥 The level of resilience a person exhibits determines the success in business, far more than their level of education, training or experience! The first trait that resilient people have is an acceptance of reality. Second is purpose and last trait they possess is the ability to adapt when things change.
🚗 The easy way is not the smartest. There are solutions to problems without having to do what traditional businesses do to solve the problems. Hiring more people, throw money at the problem or build more complex infrastructure to support extra employees does not provide simplicity.
And less is more! Adding more ingenuity, solving problems this way can set a business up for long-term stability, since less is needed to keep it afloat. 🔥
🤔 By constantly reducing one-to-one points of contact with customers and focusing instead on one-to-many relationships, a company of one can scale its connection with customers without scaling its business! Personal touches are essential, as direct communications can increase empathy, knowledge, ability to adapt and revise – yet the majority of connection can be done en masse! 🔥
