What do you do if you're not hanging out with the risk-taking, adventure-loving and damn-fine people of the Life of Something New blog?
Why you're starting your new biz and talk about Darwinism, Dr. Who and marketing - your three favorite things and you call it 'Evolve'! Yeah! That's what I've been up to. For the past few months I've been preparing - designing, cursing, collaborating, coachee-ing and finally launching!
Three weeks in and I'm already booked out for the next two months. Victory. Fist. Pump.
This wasn't magic.
When you want to be a solo-prenuer, small biz owner or freelancer it seems impassible to get thru the amount of work, time and effort to arrive at the other side - having a successful business. You try different things, experiment, research and learn lighting-sharp from your mistakes.
It's the mistakes that make us stronger, smarter and faster but they're also the things we want to talk about the least.

Vulnerable. Exposed. Fresh. Raw.

Didn't work. No clients, no profit, no fun (in the long run). What I did learn? That marketing is the pivotal point in any business. That connecting is the most important part and that I am damn good at it. I have been studying and experimenting every since Aloftt to figure out what makes a successful business and what doesn't.
Trial and error. Experimentation. Survival of the fittest. Evolution!
BAM. Everything lovable. Plus I can call my packs cool names:
What adventures are you working on/have you had?
