“Back to Mother-Effing Square One.” Rebuilding a Freelance Business from Scratch (FS137)

“No point in beating around the bush – I’m hoping for advice (and reassurance) here. I’ve recently experienced a pretty huge disaster in my freelancing career, and I’m absolutely kicking myself.”

That’s how a Fizzler started a recent conversation in the Fizzle Forums, and on this episode we help her blueprint a freelance business from scratch.

Here’s some of her story:

  • She started a successful-ish service-based business
  • She “fell out of love” with that business and accepted a job opportunity
  • 2 weeks later the company she took a job with fired everyone in her department
  • So now she’s back at “mother-effing square one” and wondering what to do.

This episode is so raw and honest it might make you bristle a little. We talk about money, emotions and some back of the napkin math you need to do.

The Top 10 Mistakes in Online Business

Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about what’s working and what isn’t. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.

One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide.
