BTI #048: Why You Should NOT be a Freelancer

Why you should not be a freelancer? But isn’t this a podcast made for freelancers?

In this episode of Beyond the Image, host James Patrick talks about the dangers of running a business that is completely reliant on trading time for money.

What if you get sick, want to take a day off, go on vacation? You cannot earn a revenue that day because you are not out making work.

The episode covers what listeners can do to develop new and additional income streams that could be sold to their current client base.

This is not a get rich quick episode, but it does dive into the work that can be added into a freelancer’s portfolio to turn them into an entrepreneur!

The year is half over and for many of us we look at the goals we set at the start of the year and panic sets in. We realize that we either lost focus on our goals, we put them off, or they were really difficult goals and we did not strategize effectively on how to achieve them.

In this episode, host James Patrick will discuss how you can own your success and achieve your goals you set for yourself over the next 90 days. This is a working episode that will give practical steps and actions listeners can take to identify their goals, create their benchmarks and build the map to achieve it.

BTI #046: When to Sell and When NOT to Sell

We make two big problems in our sales process. The first is when we never actually ask for the sale and thus the sale never happens. The second is we ask for the sale at the wrong time in the customer’s journey.

In this episode of the podcast host James Patrick discusses how to avoid these two mistakes and the six important steps we need to take the client through and when to make the sale.

This will take a stranger and turn them into a prospect, a prospect and turn them into a customer, and a customer and turn them into an evangelist!

BTI #045: How to Use Fear To Your Advantage

Listen, we have all been there! Afraid to promote our photography business, nervous that people might not like what we are doing, concerned that we will be judged for our creative endeavors.

The result is that we hide. We hide from promoting ourselves, from being proactive, from actually owning the future we want to create for ourselves.

Well, enough is enough! It is time to shift that energy and move from being reactive to proactive in your entrepreneurial journey.

This episode will cover how you, as a photographer, can turn fear into your ally and instead of allowing it to hold you back – to harness it and leverage it to help you grow your career.

Let’s be brutally honest – pursuing what you love and chasing after your dreams can be scary AF!

I know this because I’ve had to go through it myself. I was unsure of what was the right step to take and feared losing everything if I made a single mistake.

It is the exact same fear and uncertainty I see in my clients and the readers of this blog.
WHAT IF THEY DOESN’T WORK???
WHAT IF I FAIL?

That is why I created this blog. That is why I created my podcast. That is why I created my e-books.

THAT IS WHY I CREATED FITPOSIUM!!!

I wanted to have a community of passionate people coming together to share best practices, support one another as a tribe and collectively push to higher levels. And we did just that. Every year since 2015 we have SOLD OUT this conference which reinforced that we are doing the right thing.

Individuals come to FITposium with an idea and leave with an action plan on how to grow a career they love. Every single year at the event people will come up to me to tell me what has happened to their businesses and lives since the last event.

People left careers they hated to launch businesses they loved
People doubled their income
People got the cover of every major fitness publication
People who are now the breadwinner in their family
People who are now showing their kids what happens when you TRY!

You are receiving this because you DESERVE this same opportunity for the pursuit of success.

You are receiving this because you ARE PART OF OUR TRIBE!
