6 Ways for How to Think and Act like an Entrepreneur

How to think and act like an entrepreneur

So ya wanna be an entrepreneur, huh???

Entrepreneurship is becoming more and more popular, especially with the advent of the digital age.

Nearly anyone can now become an entrepreneur… or an author (a type of entrepreneur). I became one.

I also became an author. I help others become entrepreneurs, too, by coaching or mentoring them, and also by helping them become authors.

Depending upon which type of field you go into, are qualified for, or simply are passionate about, you will need to have basic skills (and be able to hire others for those you don’t have!).

In addition to being passionate, hard-working, and dedidacated (as well as perhaps have some accounting or book-keeping skills), you will also need to change your mindset, and understand a few other things about entrepreneurship.

My guest today is Katherine Brunt from Assignment Box, and she is going to go into detail about 6 things you need to consider when it comes to entrepreneurship. Be sure to respond to the question at the end!

Impact Your Audience With Proper Post Formatting

Did you know… the way you format your blog posts has a DIRECT IMPACT on your readers?

Did you know… you need to format your blog content BETTER so that your audience spends more time on your blog?

I never thought about it as of a separate serious item before. It was my subconscious, telling me that good formatting is as important as general copywriting techniques. And it is probably even more important than the quality of the content itself.

How come?

The answer is easy: your content formatting is like a wrapper for a sweet.

It’s much easier to sell a bad sweet in a good wrapper than a good sweet in a bad one.

That’s the RULE of the market: what looks nice gets more attention!

Plus, when you keep readers on your blog for a longer time, you will lower your bounce rate.

Optimize Your Posts for Skimmers

I’m sure you already know that on a typical blog only about 2% of visitors spend more than two minutes actually reading a post. The remaining 98% are just scrolling your post or skimming. Read More

Alicia’s Story

When I was 12 years old, I wanted to be an author. At the time, that’s all it was—a desire, a want. I didn’t even write that much, although I was an avid reader.

Eventually, I decided that I’d never be an author. It was something only a handful of really famous, really successful people did—or so I thought.

I didn’t think about becoming an author again until I was 19, two years after I started making money freelancing. When I discovered that I could actually write for a living writing blog posts and marketing copy for clients, I figured I could take a shot at fiction writing. Besides, all my friends were doing it.

At 19, I became a fiction author, and here’s what I learned. Read More

Motivation is KEY to Success

A writer’s motivation determines the success of his/her projects. You might be really inspired with an idea, but your motivation to devote hours, days, and weeks to it may evaporate as soon as you start working. The lack of commitment may result from improper time-management skills, distractive writing environment, improper idea-gathering techniques, or personal issues that don’t allow you to focus on the work.

There are different ways to surpass these issues. One of them is by using online tools and resources that keep you focused on the work and inspire you to write more content in less time. Let’s check out 8 awesome writing tools that will motivate you to bring your ideas to life!
