Want to know what sets the uber-successful apart from the wannabe Solopreneurs?
It’s not money, or brilliant ideas or even powerful friends.
All of those things (and more) are nice to have, but they’re not a requirement of success.
A must-have, though, is a good attitude. Without the proper mindset, you’ll constantly be battling your own brain and that can definitely be exhausting. Thought patterns such as:
- Allowing yourself to believe your ideas are no good
- Remaining convinced that you aren’t smart enough
- Being certain that someone else can do it better (whatever that “it” is)
And before you know it, you’ll have talked yourself right out of launching your new program, asking for a Joint Venture partnership or writing your book.
In no time at all, you’ll be back at your day job, working away on someone else’s business because you don’t have the confidence to create your own.

But a simple mindset change can make all the difference.
Dress for Success
When we work at home, like I do a lot it’s easy to fall into a habit of wearing sweatpants and T-shirts to the office. After all, why dress up just for Jasper my cat?
But if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to instantly shift your mindset in the right direction, ditch the yoga pants and brush your hair! Maybe even replace your slippers for real shoes.
You’ll suddenly find you feel more professional, more confident!
Never Let Fear Drive Your Decisions
Too many would-be Solopreneurs operate with a scarcity mindset rather than approaching business from a place of abundance. Rather than telling yourself that you can’t afford to hire a virtual assistant or work with a coach, try reframing your thoughts.
Rather than thinking, “I can’t afford to attend that event,” ask yourself, “How can I earn the money to invest in this trip?”
Rather than saying, “I have to do everything myself because I can’t afford to hire an assistant, remind yourself that your hourly rate potential is much more than you’d pay a virtual assistant. Then fill those hours you’re saving by outsourcing with money-making tasks of your own.
By reformatting your thoughts, you’ll turn that negative money talk into positive solutions that help you grow.
