Yesterday, as Peleg and I were polishing up "Secrets of Successful Solopreneurs," our Day One presentation for the Creative Freelancer Conference — you can still attend, there’s no outrageous "pay at the door" fee; so come on down Wednesday afternoon if you’re in Chicago).
Anyway, as I was saying, we were making a list of qualities and characteristics of these successful solopreneurs and I suggested, "People People."
Peleg didn’t really get it. Maybe because English isn’t his first language.
What I was trying to say was that unless you’re a people person (or "people people" in the plural) you’ll probably have trouble with some of the techniques that work really well when marketing your own
creative services. You know, like networking.
What do you think? Are you a people person? How important is it in building your business?
If you’re not, what do you have to do to compensate?
