Ready to step out on your own and join the growing ranks of the self-employed? by Diane Shawe

So if you are seriously considering becoming Self-employed and leaving your PAYE job behind if this sounds like you, then you are probably half way out the door.

Does this sound like you?

  • Your boss is driving you crazy because of his short-sightedness.
  • You are sick of your great ideas being ignored.
  • You are frustrated at the status quo and the lack of innovation in your field.
  • Maybe you’ve been discriminated against, laid off, restructured, demoted and under-valued.

Well you must be thoroughly fed up and ready for a change.

Being self-employed is a way of life radically different from anything. To be successful at it you will have to make a real turn-about in how you both think and act. We can often be our hardest critic but remember….

“You are not judged on the height you have risen but from the depth which you have climbed.”

 Frederick Douglass, 1881

But will I be successful?

The little doubting voices inside your head start going off

So lets take a look at how we define success?  To some, is all about wealth. To some, success is all about achieving the perfect job, or the perfect marriage, or living the perfect life.

Let’s examine what Webster says about success:

  1. degree or measure of succeeding
  2. favourable or desired outcome,
  3. the attainment of wealth, favour or eminence.

There are many ways in which people have come to define success, but one thing is clear: in order for your success to be defined a goal must be set in order to measure your achievements and success.

So why do some people live their life and go through each days, wasting precious time, effort and other resources without defining their actual goal? The question may sound elementary, but many people live this way and wonder why they fail to achieve anything of substance.

Goal Setting Mistakes

A popular goal setting mistake people make is pursuing someone else’s goal. So I am going to use the driving analogy:

How could you arrive   at your own desired destination, if you focus on where other people are going? Would you get on the motorway and drive north just because other people are driving in that direction?

Where do you really want to go? In order to define your own destination in life, you must take the time to think about who you really are and what will really make you happy. Your success may be to teach small children to read and write, or your success may be to lead a girls football team to a national championship.

Resurrect latent skills and old interests!

Self-employment is a career alternative which requires mental and physically resilient, each moment can change the rest of your life and the course of your direction. If you are not intentional with your actions, you have already planned to fail. Successful people are driven by their vision which is fuelled by their passion. Successful people don’t become successful by accident-it’s sheer, practical application (although I agree that some element of luck goes a long way).

You have to do at least one thing toward your goal every single day. You have to dedicate yourself every day to doing what you love. Don’t just talk about it. Dreams are cheap, passion is Priceless. You may have no concept where you want to be other than theory, and that’s okay. You are guaranteed to get closer to your dreams if you just walk forward with confidence and passion and focus on being of service to those who want your assistance.

So what if you cannot see a way forward, well I am sure you have heard this saying, If you say you can’t your right, if you say you can your right.  So you might as well adopt the ‘I can’ mantra.

Using your imagination

Albert Einstein once said, “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attraction.” I believe he’s right. That phrase encapsulates so much of how I try to live each day.

Remember, when you think positively about your future, instead of living in the past which you cannot change, using your imagination in a positive way will help you attract what you desire toward you. It’s about your imagination and no one else’s. I challenge you to take what I’ve already given you this far and start to imagine your future in a constructive way.  To get you going just ponder upon the following question.

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

How to become a Ace Networker by Diane Shawe

CPD FrameworkYou know, sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage.  Just literally 20 seconds of just embarrassing bravery.  And I promise you, something great will come of it.

Life is meant to be an adventure.

article by Diane Shawe M.Ed

If your life is anything less than interesting and inspiring to other people, you’re doing something wrong. The range of possible thrills and spills at your disposal is limited only by your imagination and the choices you make. You are not too old. You are not too young. You don’t need to wait until you get a promotion, Get that big deal, have a funny success story. You don’t need more savings. You don’t need to wait until you’re finished university. You don’t need to wait for a better time.

Right now is the only moment you ever have. You can apply this to so many aspects of your life. 

Don’t you hate when you’ve showed up at a networking event late or on your own and you’re the only person who isn’t part of the conversation? Every time you try to say something you seem to get interrupted or ignored; and the more you try to take part, the more awkward things get. So you stare off into space, pretend to watch something or pull out your mobile phone and act like you just got a text message.

Nobody enjoys being a networking wallflower. No matter how shy or introverted you claim to be, beyond our fragile, wounded egos, we all so badly want to be a part of the conversation, to be paid attention, to have as much fun as everyone else. Sitting on the side lines is just boring and uncomfortable.

Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage.

You reduce your nerves by mastering your start. This is essential because people can get so nervous before a communication that they:

  • Don’t make a good job of it.  For example, their presentations become a robotic read-through of boring slides, with zero personality and charm;
  • Or don’t even do it at all.  For example, when people say “I’m just too busy to go to that networking event”, but really mean “I’m too nervous, so I’ve de-prioritised it”

Both are understandable.  You can often reduce or even eliminate your nerves when you know how to start.  After all, if you’re clear what your first three sentences are and, by clear, I mean you know them word-for-word – you know you’ll start well.  So you do.  And then things tend to go well through the rest of it.

Networking?  You only need to know (1) who you’ll approach and (2) what you’ll say when you do:

  • If you see someone you know and like, go up to them and say “hello”!
  • If you don’t know/like anyone, go to someone standing on their own and say “mind if I join you?”

You’ll choose your own opening lines of course.  But do choose them.  Don’t hope it will turn out well when it matters, because it probably won’t.  Or it won’t be as good as it could have been.  Or you won’t even do it.

The key to making the transition from networking wallflower to networking Ace is to develop strong social skills, a great opening 20 seconds and to go in with the right mind set. The art of talking to strangers is a learnable skill. Through practice, you can go from frustrated networker to choosing your own adventure, by taking massive action to meet new people. It is the core skill of moving from the social side lines to centre stage. If you go out to social gatherings, but are uncomfortable anywhere but in your tiny little bubble of friends, those fake text message moments are virtually guaranteed.

10 tips on becoming social media influencer by Diane Shawe

When you go networking, make it your goal to amuse yourself by exchanging energy with people. This is the state of mind from which your entire social experience will flow. Instead of hanging out, treat networking as an intense form of play. Striving for acceptance is torture. It turns you into an energy vampire and only further annoys people who already weren’t that interested in you. Instead of seeking others’ approval, become the CEO of your own networking environment. Invest your attention into only those people, places, and things that amplify your energy and show you a good time.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Howard Thurman

Identify a communication you’re nervous about. Script, edit and practise how you’ll start. After that, it only takes 20 seconds of bravery and some planning.
