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.
