  • Finding creativity in unique places

Today's Permission Slip:

Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.

In today’s episode Carrie and Jessica are sharing a few of their favorite brainstorming techniques for solopreneurs.

So the next time you’re brainstorming a new idea, I want you to take some time and pause, allow the idea to really sink in, before you take any sort of action.

 

I give myself permission to do the brainstorming and allow myself to pause before I take action on any ideas.


 

Remember, It's not always about what you can come up with on your own - it's about having a starting point and then throwing it out to your audience or friends and getting feedback.

For the rest of Carrie and Jessica’s brainstorming techniques for solopreneurs, be sure to pre-order their new book: Me, Myself & Ideas - https://wonderideastudio.com/me-myself-ideas

This problem is mine, and I want to find the resolution that resonates with me.
