Roar Past Failure

Failure is one of the hardest situations to get past, but everyone experiences it from time to time.  What really matters is if you let it set you back or you push through it.

Recognize:

The first step at getting through failure is that you need to recognize that it is a part of life.  You need to become comfortable that it will happen and accept it.  Children are usually reprimanded for failure and then they create habits like procrastination to avoid it as much as possible.  Stop avoiding it and know that with failure you can grow into so much more.

Own It:

You know when you make a mistake so you need to own up to it.  Take responsibility for your own actions and words.  By doing this you can also help strengthen your bond with clients because they will learn they can trust you.  It’s easier to push the blame off on someone else, but they will only hurt you AND that other person in the long run.

Acceptance:

Accept the failures that have happened.  You do not need to hold yourself back by dwelling on past mistakes.  Learn from those mistakes and grow from them, this will help your business grow with you.  Learn to accept those failure at the present instead of seeing it as an obstacle and then look at it as a challenge to practice your wits and skills.  By accepting you mistakes this way, it shows you will not surrender to failure.

Reflect:

Start asking questions and then answer them.  What caused this mistake? What could I have done differently?  What can I do next time?  Reflect back on the situation and figure out how to handle it if it were to happen again.  Come up with a plan and move on.  Once you reflect back, you don’t need to keep dwelling.  You need to learn what to do right next time.

 

Roar past failure and don’t surrender to it!

3 Major Points For Contracts

 

Having a contract for your services is extremely important.  Contracts make sure you are paid for the services you provided and that there was a legal exchange.  Unfortunately, there are people out there that will just ghost you and not pay you and you can’t do anything about it unless they signed a contract.  As a small business owner, they payments are your paychecks.  Not sure where to start when writing a contract?  Well, there are 3 points that need included and then you can build off from there.  You always need to include the following:

  1. Offerings
  2. Acceptance
  3. Exchange

Offerings

You and your client both have something to offer.  You are offering your services and they are offering their money.  You need to state exactly what you are giving them, so this includes the service but also it should include the amount of time you are putting into your work.  Then your contract needs to state the amount of money expected which is the amount they will be offering to you as payment.  This doesn’t necessarily need to be a contract either, you can send an invoice to them which would require a signature.

Acceptance

This branches out from the offers.  You both have to agree and accept what the other and the acceptance can easily just be done with signatures.  This step could also be where someone decides they do not want to move forward.  Don’t let this discourage you, it can and will happen occasionally.

Exchange

The exchange is where the client and yourself get what you want, but you need to have it stated in your invoice or contract.  A good example for this section is stating the timeline the client has to pay you.  The exchange also needs to include how the exchange will be done.  What type of files, documents, or products will you be giving them?  How will they be paying you?  With an app, with check, or with a money order?  It’s good to know everything that will be happening through this process.

Always Have a Contract

No matter what, no matter the person, you need to always have a contract or invoice.  This will ensure that you will have payment for what your offered them and they can’t just take advantage of you.  Anyone could do this, so just be prepared.  If someone is offended that  you don’t trust them, just explain about how this is just to cover yourself and it is in no way a personal issue.  If you are lenient for one person then others will expect it too.  In the end, you need to take care of yourself.
