"I have been reading every word that your daily mail contains since 15 days. Some how they strike a chord or two,today for the first time it sounded different. Because it talks about an issue I faced when I was overwhelmed with projects as a freelancer. I want to know the other side,when you feel like working and have time but no projects in hand.what can be done to overcome this trough?"
I'm always getting into something, so I hadn't even thought about the flip side of it when you have time but no projects.
This is a great question.
And I'm about to give you the goods on how you can get really busy with fun projects. But you should know you need an investor mindset for this to work, it'll take time, and it's not easy.
Here's what you should do:
First, look at the people you're following who are "thought leaders" in their market.
If you haven't bought any of their products you should buy some entry level product under fifty bucks.
Then you should go through the product and look for ways you could implement what they are showing you.
After that you should document your results.
Then, drop them a quick email letting them know your findings.
This will get you on their radar.
Once you're on their radar you have to look for opportunities you can help them.
For instance, when I only had one podcast show at The Podcast Factory I had more free time.
One day I saw one of the guys I looked up to talking about a side project he had going.
He did a lot of writing for that project, but he didn't have any video – so I offered to help him turn some of his writing into videos.
I didn't charge him for it, I just wanted to help the dude out since I genuinely liked him.
He was grateful for my help and he want on to sell that side business.
A little while later he mentioned he was thinking about starting a podcast for his main business.
I reached out to him and told him I could help him and we began working together – no questions asked.
I call this my "Guru Love Potion" and it's recipe #6 on page 13 of my Podcast Recipes book.
It ain't a quick fix, and it won't always produce work for you right away. But if you've got that investor mindset you can see how a little delayed gratification could lead to a big return on your investment.
The story I just told you is still going on today. I've been working with the dude almost three years now and he is one of my best partners and clients.
