$1M- 1 Person Business Secrets- Elaine Pofeldt

Episode Summary

Breaking a million dollars as a solopreneur can seem like a distant goal, but it doesn't have to be! In this week's episode, we chat with Elaine Pofeldt, author of The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business, about how thinking outside the box can pay off big time.

Episode Notes

Can you get your business to one million dollars in revenue without any employees? Not only is it possible, but Elaine Pofeldt has written the blueprint. As the author of The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business, Pofeldt tapped into years of experience writing about business, and running her own successful business, to give a guide to scaling up.

Pofeldt started as a staff writer, and launched her writing business in 2007 in order to balance the needs of her growing family against her bottom line. She spent the first two years of her independent business learning the ropes: being open to retainer arrangements, asking for deposits, and diversifying her services to include ghostwriting, coaching, and editing. “If you think of how you can be of service to people,” she says, “people will come to you.” We dive deeper on why saying yes to everything can sometimes backfire, why you should outsource work, and how to consider investing your profits back into professional development.
