Right now, you may feel like your business is all over the place. You have some clients, but you’re always chasing the next one down.Your cashflow is laughable, and you keep trying to make new offers, knowing that this one will be the one that brings people running. You’re wondering when this whole freelancer, web designer/developer, coach, consultant, writer, yada, yada, yada solo-biz deal will finally take off.

There are essentially two ways to approach your solo-biz plan that have the chance to succeed. You can step, or you can splash.  They’re as different as night and day, but either one works.

  • Steppers are basically people who take a very methodical path to getting serious about something.
  • Splashers do the opposite – they learn by getting direct experience by diving right in.

So what does this mean to you?  Well, it means you should start thinking about whether you tend to get better results when you take the stepper route or the splasher route.  Which feels right for you when you’re looking around saying, “Wow, things are actually getting done?”
