You know how to start a lucrative business, right?
First, you have a brilliant idea that you put into a business plan. Then you raise a ton of money and burn through it with excessive hiring, lavish parties, and an impressive office featuring foosball tables and lunches catered personally by Wolfgang Puck.
Next, magically, Facebook buys you for a cool billion. Or maybe you go the IPO route and ring that bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
If that sounds implausible, that’s because it is. And yet that’s the narrative traditional media loves.
Most people who end up developing their own digital business empire start out as freelancers, or in some other client services role. And this is the perfect base from which to build an audience that allows you to expand into other revenue sources, but you’ve got to start the right way.
This week on 7-Figure Small, we take a one-week break from the new 7-Figure Small Live format to dig deep on the idea of the personal enterprise. Brian reflects on his journey from starting small to developing his own successful personal enterprise that attracts constant opportunity.
He defines what a personal enterprise is, outlines the forces converging to make now the right time to get started, and describes what your revenue and audience building mindsets should be to get you started off in a way that can you support you now and scale later.
Brian also introduces and describes the Personal Enterprise Pyramid, and tells you what your next step(s) should be.
