How do you typically define yourself?
I don’t mean when someone asks what you do, I mean, how do you talk about yourself every day, both your self-talk and with family and friends?
In my coaching, I’ve notice many self-employed professionals "dilute" their value when they present themselves to the world. Perhaps they do this in an effort to fit in, or to get the job… They hide their zest, spirit, passion – that spark that makes them special…
As a self-employed professional, it is important to stand out from the crowd. You must flaunt your quirks and show off your true personality. That is one way the people you were meant to serve will be drawn to you. Many of you know, Impression Engineers is all about taking action in your life.
Those that believe in taking action are part of our group. People aren't only buying your products or services, but as a self-employed service professional they buy you too. I know this may sound strange, but the more they know you, the more they buy. It all comes down to trust and building of the relationship. Let them know the real you.

Once you commit it to paper, it is easier to commit to change.
Embrace your authentic self and toss out the society-accepted version of you.
