From Lonely Bubbles to the Doorbells of Millionaires
Research from Harvard just pegged what holds us back from thriving businesses with flowing money.
And you know what it is? Bubbles. We live in them, and we need to get out of them.
According to the research, people who have experience in a particular field are more likely to mentor and give money to others like them.
But people just starting out in a particular field are more likely to do what they see other people like themselves doing.
So if you’re still relatively new to the paid writing world, there’s a good chance you’re mimicking the other people new to this world. And a lot of those folks are scratching their heads … hesitating … wondering what step to take next … not sure which way to turn …
It’s not a bad place to be. We were all beginners at some point.
But if you’re serious about having cash flow your way each time you knock out a writing project, you’ve got to look outside your bubble to the people who are already winning at writing. Look to the success stories. Track down the writers who’ve refined this game to such a point that they’re swimming in millions.
And then ring their doorbells. Reach out to them. Find out how they went from the bubble of isolated, money-seeking writer, to productive, prolific business owner with income-building savvy.
If you want them to mentor you, to help you, to befriend you, there’s just one thing you’ve got to do first …
Treat your writing aspirations like a bona fide business.
