Doing business can quickly become as boring a job as it would be to work a job for an online employer. When we start out, everything is new and exciting. We launch with excitement, build a website/blog/membership site/forum or whatever else we do to get noticed and help us brand our “thang.”
But then, everyday life settles in and we start to feel rather comfortable without trying to inject some new found youth and glamor.
The Bold & the Beautiful
Have you noticed that the people who are bold and beautiful seem to get it all! They get the contracts, the Porsche’s, the sexy wife’s/hunky husbands and the money. For those of you who believe in the law of attraction, this all makes sense. But for all the others, it poses a big mystery, or so it seems.
What do these guys actually do different than us?
The answer is …
They also use the power of perception very cleverly to portray success and make it look like there was a regal air surrounding them, even if they have nothing to back it up with in the beginning.
It is no secret that people are drawn to success, money and fame. They hang around successful people like moths do around a light bulb on a warm summer night, buzzing with excitement, to be so close to success actually smell success.
It is what it is… people just love to rub shoulders and associate themselves with celebrity. But like celebrity, in business we have to pay our price. This involves a …
Every now and then we need to spring clean our appearances. Like the model, the actress or the aging actor who goes for a nip & tuck, business owners need to do their own little sprucing up.
Business liposuction is nothing else than sucking all the grime, fat and deadly arteries out of our business and replace it with something more sexy, fresh and healthy to step back into the limelight.
Introducing – my brand new made over nipped & tucked Portfolio Site.
Having seen the need emerge to nip tuck myself as my business grew, I knew that I had to step into the limelight and become an even more serious contender.
It took me ages to find the right….
To rub off all that gunk from my old site and settle on a scheme for the shiny new me. I wanted:
- Black & White
In the end. I got all that and more. I was fortunate enough to have found new friends with the connections in true Hollywood style to lead me to Men With Pens. Harry, my liposuction surgeon managed to do exactly what I wanted him to do.
He nipped a bit here….tucked a little there and drew some lines on what is possible in the overall scheme of things. He came up with the timeless secret of what has been working for the starlets for years, namely…
Business Botox Injections
Combining Harry’s ability with my own vision resulted in what you will find when you visit my new me. Born out of necessity and a need to stay competitive in the freelancing market, my new Portfolio Site is everything and more I always wanted it to be.
Now I can confidently step out into the limelight in front of the Paparazzi, knowing, that my boobs won’t fall out and my hair is nice and sleek.
If you like to book me for a glamorous assignment, a photo shoot, or a long term contract, you can do this confidently now with the help of my new site.
Just like the Hollywood crowd needs a lift off at times, we as business owners and entrepreneurs need one too. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Is my site/blog modern enough to keep with current demands and trends? I’m afraid if it isn’t, you might want to book your own business liposuction.
- Are there parts of my business that could do with eliminating (like slow loading Plugins, text, widgets…)
- Is my public profile worthy enough of my ability as a professional?
- Am I branding myself enough for business, or is the casual drop of my name sending the big studio bosses into a hiding frenzy.
In the end, in business there is always a second chance. So if you don’t get it right this time round, you might do so in the next… or the round after.
But do you really want to wait this long?
So, what is it that you do occasionally to nip tuck your business? Let me know, I’d love to hear your input.
